Color Pop

We made it guys, It's Friday! What do you have planned this weekend? I have a weekend full of style sessions and errands. When I'm running around a lot, I like to be comfortable but still put together. If you've been following me for a while then you know every thing's not always high heels and dresses. However, even when I'm not all decked out, I still like to look nice. 

The other day I had some late evening style sessions after work, so I decided to rock jeans. The best thing about a great pair of jeans is that you can dress them up or down depending on the look you want to achieve. For my look on Wednesday I decided to pair my Lane Bryant distressed white jeans with my yellow SWAK Pretty Cami and Fashion to Figure striped jacket. To round out the look, I added a lime green skinny belt to give the cami some definition and a color pop red clutch to match the red elbow patches on the jacket. 

What do you think? Before you decide to pick up sweats and gym shoes to run errands, take a couple of extra steps and throw on a simple outfit like this. Don't have a jacket? Throw on a fun cardigan a light-weight pullover sweater. Not only will you look more polished, but as my grandma says,  "When you look good, you feel good"!  Have a wonderful weekend! 

See you on the front row!

School Daze

The other day I gave you a little teaser on Instagram about this #OOTD post. I scored a new sweater from the Banana Republic clearance section the other day and have been dying to wear it. I decided to channel my former grade school days and create a preppy look. I paired my new sweater with a simple white button down shirt from Talbot's and my navy ASOS skater skirt. 

To keep things interesting, I added my Banana Republic statement necklace from last summer and my FAVE new "Leisure" clutch from Just Fab. Rounding out the look I added my new flat sandals from Target and my ZeroUV aviators. I kept the makeup simple and opted only for foundation, light blush and a color pop green eyeliner.  

What do you think? I really love the simplicity of this look and it's one that can be worn to work, out to lunch with the girls or on a stroll in the park. I've got to jet, because I don't want to be late for class, lol!

Fashion To Figure

Who knew that one quote could inspire an entire brand. Back in 1950, Lena Bryant, Founder of Lane Bryant spoke those immortal words. Over 50 years later, these words inspired her great grandson's Michael & Nicholas Kaplan to create the brand Fashion to Figure in 2002. With the very first FTF store opening in 2004, the brand has mainly been segmented in the northern region. However, last night I was the first person to experience their first store south of Washington, D.C.

Located at Arbor Place Mall, in Douglasville, Ga., the south's first Fashion To Figure store is gorgeous! I had an amazing evening with FTF's COO Nicholas Kaplan and his amazing team, learning more about the brand and trying on some awesome clothes. The experience that you will have in FTF is nothing short of exceptional. The best way for me to describe it is like going in your favorite boutique but in the middle of the mall.

Playing Dress Up

I dubbed this the 24 Hour Jumpsuit because it can go from day to play and back again! ;)

FTF has huge fitting rooms and perfect lighting for mirror #selfies !

The FTF team is like a family.  Whenever a new store opens, they send employees from the New York stores to work and train the new team. By taking this extra step, Mike & Nick have insured that the culture of the brand remains authentic and that each guest will have an exceptional Fashion to Figure shopping experience.

Since FTF is not vertically integrated, they work with hundreds of vendors to create clothing pieces that are both on trend and affordable. Although pieces are affordable, they have not skimped on the quality. You can expect the store set to change every 4-6 weeks as their clothes are "Fast Fashion" , but because they only order a limited number of each size in their pieces, anytime you come in, you will always see something new.

The store at Arbor Place officially opens today and I strongly encourage you to check it out. I was fortunate enough to be gifted with some fabulous pieces but will for sure be back before the week is out to grab more things. Below is a peek inside the store and a few of the fab items that are for sale. Special thanks to FTF for the preview and all of my fun goodies! To keep up with the latest from FTF, follow them on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter! Happy Shopping!

See you on the front row!

While in LA a couple of weeks ago, I found out about the most amazing product called Kix'ies. I have to be honest with you, when publicist Maile Cabral slipped me her card and told me to email her about trying the Kix'ies brand of thigh high stockings, I was a little skeptical. You see, Maile told me that Kix'ies had a size for almost everyone and they were guaranteed to stay up with out garters.

Don't get me wrong, garters are sexy to look at, but a real hassle to deal with. As a rule, the only hosiery I wear are the occasional pair of tights in the winter, so, the thought of getting an interesting texture on my legs without the hassle of shimmying into tights did peek my interest. I decided to take Maile up on the challenge and ordered a super sexy pair of polka dot Kix'ies.

I decided to rock my Kix'ies with my fave ASOS leather skater skirt with my Lavender's Jungle tulle underskirt and JCP colorblock blouse. I rounded out the look with my convertible Kate Spade Saturday bag and magenta Shoe Mint pumps. 

I am proud to report that my Kix'ies fit comfortably around my thighs and stayed up all day! I also felt pretty sexy knowing that I was wearing them, too. My Kix'ies are a size D and fit like a glove. I totally recommend giving them a try. Now through the end of the month, take $5 off your purchase using the code KIXIE-5. Happy Shopping!

Two-Way Tuesday: Numbered Designs

Hey Guys! How's it going today? I normally don't remix a bold piece this quickly, but on Easter I had to rock my black and white plaid Numbered Designs skirt again. You first saw this look in LA for the kick off of Lucky Fabb. 

The one thing I omitted about the skirt last time is that it's reversible!!! How awesome is that? Designer, Shang Coleman Lined my skirt with another layer of the fabric so that I can literally flip in inside out and have a totally different look! For Easter I decided to wear it on the reverse side and paired it with my faux leather Ashley Stewart peplum, old Eloquii belt, Shoe Mint pumps and a re-purposed Brighton jewelry case as a clutch. 

What do you think? I love the double layers on this skirt because it gives an entirely different dimension of style. Paired with the peplum it looks more like a dress than separates. Like I told you before, pieces from Numbered Designs are super exclusive and limited in quantity. To get your very own piece of the action, email

Make the world your personal runway!

#ootd Denim & Dots

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty relaxing in case you were wondering. With the weather being so up and down, I haven't really been motivated to wear anything fab. Although it's April, it's been feeling more like February some days and when it's not cold it's been raining. Thankfully this weekend we had a break in the weather and I was able to really pull out some of my spring clothes.

Last year, I scored an adorable polka dot skirt from ASOS. I have worn it several times, but decided to give it a little pop. I paired the skirt with my fave denim shirt from JCP,  Just Fab Luxe pumps, Michael Kors clutch and vintage Eloquii Jacket. I loved adding the pops of green and purple because I think it definitely took the look up a notch.

What do you think? I know the green and purple really don't make since, but somehow they both work. How do you wear denim and dots?

Repeat Offender: Cayetano Legacy

Happy Tuesday! In lieu of a Two-Way Tuesday post, I thought it was time to do another riveting edition of Repeat Offender. If you are new to the blog, occasionally I have to make fun of myself for abusing certain accessories or articles of clothing. The topic of today's discussion is my Cayetano Legacy Talese Necklace!

I first scored this piece back in June during a private viewing of the collection from my friend and Cayetano Legacy NY rep Jessica Dandria. I picked out several pieces and have totally abused all of them. The Talese in particular has been abused more than most. From NY, to GA all the way to Cali, this necklace has more sky miles than I do! Below are just a few of the 9 million times I have worn this necklace. 

Although the Talese is no longer available online, be sure to browse the new spring collection! Visit and you can score your own necklace to abuse! LOL!

Lucky Fabb Finale

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was hectic to say the least. I was supposed to give you my final look from Lucky Fabb on Saturday, but the day got away from me. I finished up Lucky Fabb by wearing another fabulous skirt by Numbered Designs.

Because we were brunching, I wanted to wear something dainty, yet impactful. I paired my gold tulle skirt with a breathtaking necklace and ring courtesy of one of my fave accessories designers Rean Fisher. She created these pieces specifically for this ensemble and also loaned me an amazing mother of pearl clutch. To round out the look, I added a color pop with my cobalt blue suede Manolo Blahnik pumps.

What do you think?!? How amazing were my accessories? Special thanks to Tammie Reed of Talking with Tami for snapping my outfit pics. If you want to score a skirt similar to mine email and to grab amazing one of a kind baubles like my necklace and ring, visit .
