Olympic Inspired OOTD

Hey dolls so in the spirit of the 2012 Olympic games I put together this look. Red, White, Gold and Blue is such a perfect combination. I love getting dressed with a theme in mind, am I the only one?? Anyway have you guys been watching the Olympics this year. I have, and let me just say that it is always so impressive and inspiring. The physical abilities of these people is just amazing. Just thinking of the level of dedication and time they put into training makes me want to kick myself for ever complaining when its time to hit the gym or do Insanity. My favorite event is always women's gymnastics since I swore I would be the next Dominique Dawes until I was about 12 years old. #TrueStory
The FIT:
Shirt: Mango via JCPenny
Skirt/Vest: Forever 21
Heels: DVF
Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs
I will be loading a review/tutorial on this Olympic inspired makeup look featuring NareeCosmetics soon dolls. In the meantime take a look at her super affordable and pigmented products HERE!
So someone...meaning ME....was super bored last week and decided dye my own hair. In my opinion it was a major fail and surely needs more practice before trying it again. Perhaps a bit more research aka YouTube needs to be done! LOL
 So what's your fav Olympic event dolls, I'm curious to know!!

Hints of Neon

I hate it when a great outfit is ruined by a bad picture. *sigh* Took these pics on my way to church this morning. Didn't have much time and decided to try out a new location and I'm not a fan of how the pics turned out, happens when your in a rush. Anyway, hope you dolls had a good weekend, I have a very interesting week ahead so pray for me darlings.

Staying Cool in All Black

Hey dolls,
Just a quick outfit post of what I wore last night for dinner and drinks with a friend. I will not lie, this heat has me in some kind of mood. It's too hot for clothes in my opinion, too hot to even think about what to wear daily geesh. I choose this outfit because it was quick, easy breezy and simple but still classy and sexy. When building your wardrobe basics be sure to lace your wardrobe with go-to items like this lovely romper from Rachel Roy. Every girl needs a little black dress and little black romper in my opinion ;-)

Have a great weekend dolls and don't forget to be amazing! 
The FIT:
Romper: Rachel Roy via Macy's
Wedges: Mark & James for Badgley Mischka
Clutch: Banana Republic
Necklace: Forever 21
Watch: ALDO

 I ended up pulling my hair up in a side bun on this hot, humid night. This DMV heat is no joke lovelies. lol

Family Fun

Hey loves, I must admit I've been MIA and super busy lately, sorry for the lack of posts this week. I've had family in town all last week and then this weekend my lil cuz came in town to visit Howard University. She'll be a senior this year and is being very proactive by visiting schools. We had a blast visiting the college and site seeing around DC. I'm so happy she invited me to go with her and I really hope she chooses HU. I think she will really love it here! A true passion of mine has always been mentoring young women. My cuz is a beautiful young woman and I know she will do great things. 
Naima loves the camera just as much as I do! * Say Cheese!*
My cuzzo's!

 The day was long, hot and I was super sweaty but I tried my best to be cute. LOL I say #FAIL

In my Leopard Pants

Dolls, I couldn't help it, the sale sent me into a frenzy and I had to have them! In my defense my reason for breaking my Shop My Closet Challenge promise to myself was I envisioned this awesomely amazing Fashion Week outfit!

Top/Belt: GAP
