I am the best shopper alive!!!

so I can post real quick, i'm stealing some wi-fi from the cafe by my house. So I just got back from a very fashionable weekend in Florida, I went for my homecoming. Me and one of my best friends went to Thrift Town, where I seriously came up on some gems. I also went to the 2bebe outlet and got some amazing pieces, but i'll be back with that later. The black pants were about 3 dollars and they have a belt loop so I can add a little PIZZAZ to them, they are very comfortable and way chic! The fuschia grandma pants about 3 dollars, are my favorite, they can look real Golden Girlish if you don't know how to wear them, and next is my funky dress about 6 dollars, I love this thing. It has pointed shoulders which is totally in right now, I am thinking of taking it to a tailor and change the zipper, what do you think? I also got a leather skirt which needs to be tailored and dry cleaned, and a pair of black satin slacks headed for the cleaners and a fuschia ballroom skirt that needs to be dry cleaned and I will wear around the holidays...excited!!!

gloves, gloves & more gloves

I don't if it's because i'm moving to NYC or what, but I am OBSESSED with winter accessories. I just want coats, scarves, and gloves. Leather gloves to be exact. I found all these beauties on ebay & I will be adding a few to my collection soon. What are your fall & winter must haves....what do you think of my choices?

peachy, lace & leather

so quite a few blogs that I follow have been mentioning the lace and leather takeover so I wanted to give my .02 cents. I love the harshness of the leather skirt mixed with a sheer blouse or a leather corset with a cute pair or leggings or skinny jeans and a leather coat. I have to get to work on my ensemble like this ASAP. Well i'm in Florida for my Homecoming!!! Hail Wildcats, so if you have any questions or request just email me and i'll get back as soon as I can, have a fashionable week.


I love. love. love Tracee Ellis Ross, her she is looking way fab ob the red carpet for Black Girls Rock!

ok i'm back, for a minute... I don't know about ya'll but I love it when I see a celeb wearing something that I own...wnter the new feature "celeb coycat". So here is Melanie Fiona, one of my top new artist to look out for, rocking my earrings. Knowing how cheap I am these were no more than 7 I hope her stylist got her a good deal. Work it out then Melanie, also her album The Bridge hits stores in the U.S. on November 3rd and I cannot wait!
