I'm on Team Dereon

I'm on Team Dereon





Yes I am on #teamdereon I am quite proud of Beyonce and her line Dereon. I usually don't really care for urban lines, because they're always gaudy and sometimes just straight up ugly. But today as I was out shopping for a christmas party I'm going to this weekend, I stopped in  a random shoe store. I was looking for some black pumps. because I realized I own no black pumps (crazy right!!!) but anyway, just as I was about to give up hope, I saw the quilted black pumps with the Deron symbol. They're actually nice in person. AND THEY HAD THEM IN MY SIZE #EPICWIN.
The store I was in happen to have more of her pumps so I tried on a few. and fell in love with all the ones I tried on. I ended up buying the first ones in the pic above. They seem plain but they have a nice surprise on the heel. You will see more about them when I do the outfit post about my Christmas look.
I think what I enjoy about these shoes is that they are completely covered with the symbol of Dereon. She could have very well made them all sparkly with all kinds of colors and chains and hooks and what not lol I like that she kept them simple but still very much Bey's style!

Dress for the Holidays

So it is the time of the year folks are throwing their holiday parties. Matter fact I myself have a party to go to this coming Saturday (Dec. 3rd) And that means finding fabulous dresses to wear. Now you all know me, short, sparkly and colorful! But holiday partys allow for an extra sexy dress that still have a family friendly side. That's why I love shopping for holiday dresses. It's one thing to shop for a dress to go to the club in. I mean anything short or with an extremely plunging neck line, isn't hard to come by. But a dress to wear to a christmas party or the oh so exciting new years parties, that's the best part. I'm quite excited to look for a great dress. And because online window shopping is what I do, I found some dress that I absoutely love.

Outfit Pick Me Up

So today started of miserable. I spent most of the morning trying to figure out how I'm going to pay off my student loans. And that process in and of itself really drained me and gave me a serious reality check on life. I spent quite some time being upset about the whole situation. I knew paying back student loans would break the bank, but not this much. I need the Lord to step in asap. Because I'm not sure what I can do at this point. So what better way to make myself feel better than to dress up and take pictures.
I've had this outfit in my mind for a couple weeks now. It was a matter of me putting it together. It actually came together better than I thought it would. I love it. There's an indescribeable feeling you get when an outfit really works for you. oh and you have to see the most adorable geeky robot necklace that I got the other day...isnt he the cutest thing ever?!?!?!

CRB Feature...#geeked

I had a great surprise this morning. My feature on Classic Raw Beauty is up. Chakayla is one my favorite bloggers and a rather good friend. I'm excited and quite flattered for her to feature me. Her style always catches me attention, I love that she rocks her natural hair proudly, and I will support any young woman going to school to better herself. So for her to think I'm worthy to be on her blog really warms my heart!

A huge thank you to Chakayla. To see the feature check it out on her blog...Classic Raw Beauty

Amen to Leopard

OK OK I know I haven't posted in about a week. But lately work keeps me busy and I really haven't been inspired to really but together an outfit. Well at least put together an outfit that you all haven't seen before. But I'm trying to get my life together with this post. I wore this outfit to church yesterday. My dance ministry was dancing so I was very important that I make it to service to watch them worship. I very rarely make it to church cause I work Sunday mornings. But any way this is what I came up with. Kept it very simple but want to feel slightly feisty with the leopard print cardigan.

I got the cardigan this past saturday when me and the besties went shopping. We literally had a shoping day. We spent a good 5 to 6 hours in the mall. (a real girl's shopping day) We havent been able to shop like that in a long time cause I work a lot, my bestie just got a job at Urban Outfitters, and th elife of working in retail has its down sides. Buuuut moving on the entire outfit was relatively inexpensive...and you know I love a fierce inexpensive outfit. And yes I like to praise the Lord in style

Details
Top-Gift from my mom
Skirt-Miss Tina from walmart- $18
Cardigan- Tilly's- $14
Shoes- Ebay- $28
Bag-Goodwill- $5

Navy for the Interview

Navy for the Interview




So I know you all are wondering. I have an interview for a media agency on Thursday, and I don't believe in following the typical standards for going to inteviews. I don't want to be in a boring gray or black suit. I like to have fun and feel great in what ever I have on. So THANK GOD for things like Polyvore, because the ideas that run wild in my mind, allow me to play virtual dress up. When I was at the gym, this is what I came up with. An aline skirt,  a simple white button up, a navy blue blazer, leopard print belt black wedges and a blue bag.
Now of course you know I would want to find the cheaper versions of all of these. buuuuut you get the point. So I will be trying my best to put this outfit together. I am on the hunt for pretty much all of these items.
But about my interview....I will be interviewing for Zenith Media, they do mostly media buying and what not. And deal with a lot of big name brands. They have a 3 month rotaional training program, with a possibility of job placement after the program. I really want this. I pray to God this comes through for me. Lord knows I need this. This could help me career wise as well as help the blog.

So what do you think?
