Hey Pigsters, coming to all with another fabulous blog post created by yours truly! 🙂 Yesterday I went to walk the Pagoda Garden, a beautiful peaceful garden enriched with Chinese culture. It was a beautiful day and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather by baring a little skin. One of my favorite places to shop is a at Ross Dress for Less because you can find amazing name brand deals at inexpensive prices. In this blog post I wore a gorgeous, simplistic, strapless, forest green jumpsuit from Ross that was only $8.99. (SCORE!) I also paired my jumpsuit with black mini gladiator heeled shoes by Steve Madden that were only $24.99 . (DOUBLE SCORE!) 🙂
Below are photos that were taken by my amazing boyfriend! (Teehee!) 🙂 Also I was getting over a little cold so sorry if I look a little congested in these pictures, but a little stuffy nose wasn’t going to stop me from enjoying weather, walking a gorgeous scenery, and looking FABULOUS! 🙂
Hey pigsters! You know I can’t leave my sistahs hanging! 🙂 Unfortunately, Ross Dress for Less doesn’t have a web page were you can purchase this look however I was able to locate a jumpsuit that was similar to the one I’m wearing in the above photos.

Hey Pigsters! Happy Spring! 🙂 Where I live I’m still experiencing a little winter weather, but for the most part the weather has been Springalicous! (Teehee! I made up that word) Anyways sorry for not posting in awhile. I’m learning that being a blogger takes a lot of time that you must spare, but this is something I’ve always wanted to do so I’m willing to spare time every chance I can get when I break away from school, work, and other activities.
So as you all know we have finally step into my second favorite season, Spring! Currently what’s been trending a lot for Spring is denim and anything that is off the shoulder. I kind of started my Spring wardrobe early, so I’m already tired of the off the shoulder trend because it’s everywhere! In order for me to buy an off the shoulder anything it definitely has to have a unique flare to it. My outfit for this blog post I decided to wear this unique off the shoulder top that flowed gracefully in the back and consisted of a peasant blouse sleeve which I loved. I paired my top with a lace up white capri pant and denim faux suede loafers from DSW. Not only is denim trending, but loafers are also popular this Spring as well as faux suede material. As far as accessories I wore a denim choker that I layered with a simple gold necklace with a nude cross-body purse and belt.
Please enjoy these images as they were taken by a good friend and photographer, Janice Agosto @jclaira. The images were taken in downtown Norfolk, Virginia by the pier. The photos came out fabulously so I’m showing more than I normally do in a blog post, teehee! 🙂
You all know I can’t leave my sistahs hanging. Below are the links to where you can purchase this fabulous look! 🙂

Hey Pigsters! Thank you all once again for the wonderful support! After I made my fourth blog post I’ve decided to make my blog public and in the first day I had over 100 views, woohoo! 🙂 I would also like to thank everyone who has looked at my page and has taken the time to give me wonderful feedback and critique about my overall site. I’m definitely open to opinions because it’ll ultimately make me stronger as a blogger, so don’t be scared to be honest with me if you have any suggestions! 🙂 For this blog post I had the opportunity to work with a talented local photographer, Ron Scanlon. I’m extremely proud and appreciative of how these photos have came out because it was definitely a goal of mines to take more professional pictures for my site! 🙂
My look for today is actually one of my favorite winter items which is a faux fur sweater shawl from Forever 21. I bought this shawl back in December as a Christmas gift to myself and I’ve just been obsessed! This sweater shawl is extremely thick and comfortable as it features a tribal like print with a combination of neutral color blocking tan, brown, and black. Around the shoulders of the shawl features a faux fur collar which in my opinion made this shawl extremely unique. Faux fur has been a popular trend that I’ve seen for this fall/winter seasons even though faux fur has never completely went out of style. One of the greatest features I do love about this sweater shawl is the fact that the the faux fur collar can be removable if you choose not to wear it with the shawl. In order to make dress this sweater shawl as fabulous as possible I decided to pair it with my charcoal wash denim skinny jeans and open toed booties from DSW. I decided to also add a pop of color by wearing a velvet lavender choker.

Hey Pigsters and welcome back to my page, woohoo! I definitely want to thank all for the support! Blogging is absolutely harder than I expected, ugh! I have multiple outfits that I’ve taken pictures of that I will like to be featured on my blog page, but blogging is very time consuming between photo edits and writing posts it conflicts with my normal schedule. Luckily, I’m finding better ways to prioritize my time where blogging can fit into my daily schedule, to keep all updated on my FABULOUS looks, hey! 🙂
Today’s look features a grey choker duster that I’ve ordered from Boohoo.com. A few of my co-workers and friends have suggested to try out the site, so I did. Originally I had my eye on this specific duster since November of 2016 that was originally priced at $26.00 which I was uncomfortable spending on a site I’ve never shopped on before. Luckily after Christmas my duster dropped completely to $13.00 which I of course brought with no questions asked as well as a grey turtleneck dress that’ll I will also feature in my later posts. 🙂
Overall I love my choker duster, but when I first received my package from Boohoo.com I was a little upset with my order. Boohoo has a lot of nice clothes, but for quality that’s okay the shop is kind of expensive. For starters the original picture of this duster is misleading in color. The picture featured a dark grey duster, however when I received my duster the color seemed five shades lighter and the material wasn’t made of the best quality along with my turtleneck dress I’ve also ordered. Also my dress size is an 8 which I’ve ordered both my duster and dress in, however it was a little big on me, so note to self me personally I have to order a size down from this particular site. Keep in mind if you do decide to order from this site the shipment cost is a little of a “rip off” and on top of that I paid 5-6 days of shipping and didn’t get my order until 2 weeks afterwards.
Lastly, how I decided to wear this look was by keeping it simplistic with a black tank top tucked in with my black high waist jeans. It was a beautiful day outside so I decided to wear my mauve colored handbag I received as a Christmas gift from Charming Charlies and black flats which I recently brought from H&M for $15! 🙂
Teehee! Wow this is a pretty long blog post, but hope you guys enjoyed and of course I can’t leave my sistahs hanging! Below is the following link to purchase this choker duster!

Hey Pigsters, so excited for my second blog post! (Woohoo! I’m on fire!) Just kidding, I’m trying my best to stay consistent posting my outfits, and since I’m on winter break from school I have a lot of time to post my outfits and keep y’all updated. Anyways today’s look was time traveling back into the 70’s. Today, the 70’s fashion has made itself relevant especially during this past Fall season. Now, I’m not really into rocking 70’s trends, however I did spot a perfect pair of bell bottom pants from Forever 21 that I couldn’t resist to have. The pants were a paisley print which I don’t hardly own and made out of a soft velvet material. In other words these pants were both stylish and comfortable hey! 🙂 Another great feature about these pants was the way it hugged my body and showed off my curves oooh! 🙂 I decided to pair these pants with a soft red bodysuit with lace detailing and a deep v-neck cut. What made this bodysuit a 70’s trend was the puffy sleeve and lace detail. Finishing off my look I wanted to add a little sex appeal by wear a simple drop chain necklace.
I hope you guys enjoyed this look and you know I don’t like to leave a sistah hanging, so below are the links if you want to purchase this outfit and be fabulously 70’s in style! 🙂

Hey Pigsters! Thanks for viewing my very first blog post, woohoo! My blog was originally supposed to be published over this past summer, however I didn’t like how it was really turning out nor had the time to be fully committed due to school and work. (Ugh college is stressful, lol) I’m a beginner at blogging so, I don’t own my own domain yet and I’m taking pictures using my camera phone which is getting me by so bare with me, teehee! 🙂
Anyways I hope everyone had a FABULOUS Christmas as much as I did especially since I gifted myself with an embroidered floral motor jacket from Forever 21! Yes, dahlings there is nothing wrong with spoiling yourself! (in my Mariah Carey voice) Embroidery designs on clothing is definitely trending for the winter. I’ve mainly seen embroidery printing in bomber jackets, satin shirt dresses, and denim wear, but I’m predicting embroidered design trends will flow into the Spring of 2017. How I’ve decided to rock my new motor jacket was by pairing it with a thin white cowl collar sweater, light wash denim jeans, and to balance out the leather I wore my leather over the knee boots! A great thing about these over the knee boots is that they don’t slide down which I’ve had a problem with some of my boots doing that in the past, and yes it’s quite annoying dropping it like it’s hot every five steps just to pull up your boots. These boots on the other hand stay over the knee where they should be therefor no more dropping it like it’s hot in the middle of the streets only strutting! 🙂
