Happy Sunday! This past week was very interesting. The most exciting thing, SNOW, yes snow! Everyone including myself was so excited. Snow is not something we see very often, especially not before Christmas. It really made it feel like the HOLIDAYS! It’s all gone now 🙁 and the temperatures, well… 🙁 !
In keeping with the Christmas season I felt like incorporating red into my wardrobe again this week (it’s my favorite color in case you didn’t know). I was feeling brave by wearing this form fitting sweater dress. But there was something about it that spoke HOLIDAY to me. The red and back stripes has a woven line of sparkle in-between each stripe. I was surprised at how form fitting it was and felt like it needed a belt. Instead of a traditional belt, I tied a wide black ribbon in a bow around my waist, that really changed the entire look.
I accessorized with long faux diamond earrings, long necklace and bangles. Instead of wearing a red shoe I opted for black pointy toe RED BOTTOMS instead 😉 .
My (old) little black velvet handbag added that extra holiday sparkle from the two little rhinestone bling medallions. Even though this bag is very old, it still fits todays fashion trends. Never get rid of your handbags! They could make a fashion comeback years later, Okay!

Another way to style this dress, add a pair of boots and floppy hat! Next time…

Happy Sunday! It’s hard to believe we’re in the month of March already. We didn’t have much of a Winter now its almost Spring. It’s still Winter and I’m going to dress like it until March 20th (first day of Spring) 🙂 Today’s outfit, signature ankle pant, velvet bodysuit and blazer is as close as I get to Winter clothing. First of all I think the ankle pant is sexy! Add a bodysuit to that and you’ve got a style party. Not just any bodysuit but one with a sheer V- neckline and back. The blazer took the outfit to a whole other level. It all came together quite nicely.
But!!! the real show stopper today is my “necklace”. I was so excited when I found it and equally excited to finally wear it!. It was the perfect compliment to the sheer V-neck of the bodysuit. I also added a two identical bold bracelets (one on each arm) for a more stylish look. Pointed toe leather and suede heels topped it all off.
My Bag: In keeping with the velvet trend, I carried this black with gold trim flap bag. Its a shoulder bag with a velvet and chain strap. I also have this bag in Bordeaux or burgundy.
Here’s is a tip: Whenever I don’t want to wear the strap long on the shoulder, I shorten the strap on my bags by tying the chain with a ribbon inside. Talk about versatility… 😉

Black Velvet if you please… It’s my Birthday!! I’ve had an awesome weekend celebrating my birthday. It has been nothing but eating good food and shopping. Today after church I was treated to some Soul Food from a local restaurant Yall’s.
What does one wear on their birthday? Velvet! Not only is velvet the perfect winter fabric but its trending right now! SO I guess I’m trending 🙂 .
Today’s outfit could be considered a two piece but it’s not.. A black blazer is always a good idea no matter what you choose to wear with it or the fabric. I was so excited when I saw that the skinny pant came in the same fabric. I love a skinny leg pant that hit at the ankle just right. A skinny leg pant goes great with a flat or my favorite; the pointy toe pump. Any undershirt would work under the blazer. I chose a turtle neck.
My accessories: to break up all the black I added a sparkly STATEMENT necklace, it really stands out against the black. I kept my earring simple with large skinny hoops. I also added a single black and silver bangle.
My BAG: I call this satin half circle handbag my “bug bag”. The jeweled bug is unexpected and fun.
