Happy Thanksgiving

what are you thankful for this year? I'll go first...I am thankful for the gift of life, everyday, every breath is a blessing. We have seen soo many people pass this year & it really puts things into perspective. I am thankful for my family, they are crazy, but they are always there for me. I am thankful for my best friends...I absolutely love them. I am thankful for my health...thank you lord. And lastly I am thankful that the lord has kept my head above water this year...I have been out of work going on 11 months and he has kept me, and as I prepare for my next venture in life (NYC) I know that he will continue to bless & keep me. Do not concentrate on what you do not have, concentrate on what you do have....LIFE.
Happy Thanksgiving

Accentuate the legs

so my fabulous followers how are we feeling about bedroom thigh highs out in public? me personally, I love the way  Selita is rocking them. They are barely noticeable with the length of her dress so it's sorta like a "peek a boo" thing going on. I don't know how I feel about them on Rhi Rhi...hmmm??? And I found a super cute store that sells these types of stockings here

photo story:: Amber Rose

I loves me some Amber Rose...there I said it. I think style wise she has come a long waay. I don't know what she is like and whatnot, but bish knows how to work it in front of the camera. She said she doesn't work with a stylist so it is great that she knows what works for her kudos to you Amber Rose!

Amerie styled by Charles Wade

She looks fabulous and was styled by Honey Mag Fashion Director & Stylist Charles Wade. I think he did such a great job styling this shoot. The clothing is pretty simple and clean, I love the pop of color with the blue lined eye and the vamped red lips and dark eyes. Who made that necklace and where can I get that bustier?

shoettie of the moment

I need these shoetties ( shoe booties) like ASAP. I just think they are soo hot in the grey suede color. I gotta look around and see if I can find a cheaper price because I am moving next month & I don't have 89 bones to just spend right now...but I do love them. Most likely paired with opaque stockings and a mini skirt...or some uber cute skinny jeans...decisions...decisions...
You can purchase this shoettie here::

NYX Makeup Box

so these are the 2 Make Up Boxes that I am currently obsessing over. I am ordering one of them tonight, but I just can't decide which one to get first... I think I may go with the Bronze first because we are in the winter months and I think the colors are better suited for this time of the year. Then in a month or so I will get the other. Each make up box includes::12 eye shadows, 5 lip colors, 6 highlighters and blushes and make up applicator brushes. It's 5 inches wide and I am super excited to get it in the mail. You can buy @ or if you are a bargain hunter like me hop on over to and type in NYX Makeup Box and that is where you will find the Bronze Goddess Box.

V magazine

so I saw this photo of Kate Moss on the cover of V Magazine's swimsuit issue rocking this funky coat. This photo caught my eye because I had tried on the coat a few months ago @ Fashion Night Out in LA....see, she is definitely rocking it better than I.

Photo Fab

Michelle Williams had  fabulous alter ego photo shoot with Derek Blanks...she looks amazing in my opinion. She was styled by Adrene Ashford. From what I could find online Adrene is the owner of a boutique in Atlanta called "Pieces of Adrene", and I want to know is where did she find that white ruffled blouse and the mink looking coat...way fabulous hunny!

how to do the 1 shoulder look

I recently purchased this silver lame dress I wasn't really sure of how to wear it, so I went to to get inspired. Based on current trends & things that I like, I put the following looks together. These are great options for the holidays instead of the traditional dresses.
So what do you think of these looks? Do you like the fullness of the bootie with the shorter dress? Would you mix it up like this? When I do wear it, I will post pics*

a day on the metro

so since i'm leavin Los Angeles in a little over a month, I decided to get out and start seeing things/ going to places I have not been to yet. So on todays mission, with my friend maaaaaaaaaaaaaaary, we hoped on the metro, gotta get used to that as well, and headed into Chinatown to see what we could find...not much :( It was an unusally cold day out here so, we walked to the double dragons to get a photo & we were also hungry. We saw these guys eating and it sure did look good. So they told it was 2.25 a plate. So we go in and shared a plate of food. Look how much they gave us!!!!!!! And the rest are just shots of what I wore today.
