Vintage Treasures & Mini Skirts

Hey loves, Happy Friday! So I'm super late with this post but I have been soooo very busy with life this week. Update coming soon,  in the meantime please direct your attention to this gorgeous vintage Etienne Aigner leather trench. I scored this baby a while ago while cruising mom's closet and kindly took it off her hands. I mean how FLY is this piece, I think I screamed out loud when I seen it! I paired it with some simple and sexy basics to give this beautiful and bold piece all the shine and take center stage. I MUST wear this coat more....absolutely MUST. Any suggestions on how to style it next loves? How would you rock this piece? Leave a comment below and let me know :-) Have a happy, safe and long holiday weekend loves!

#DiaryOfFly and Beanies

Hey loves, today I'm coming to you with some exciting news. I am teaming up with Esther Armah for THE SWAGGER of MEAN campaign as part of the EJ International Team. Emotional Justice Unplugged (EJU) Season 4 is a NYC city wide conversation series aimed at teenage girls. Using the EJ process, the aim is to create a process that acknowledges and discusses how much swagger mean has and then identifies highlights, celebrates, acknowledges the power of fly in each girl. The aim is for girls to see and identify their own beauty, power, fly and to do so in each other. 

You dolls know that mentoring young women is a passion of mine and I try to do so every chance I get as seen HERE and HERE. My intern Asantee whom is a valued member of the #NajaDiamond team and whom I mentor frequently will be helping me spread the word of this awesome movement and I would love it if you would too. To help you simply identify something that is FLY about you on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #DiaryofFly. We also want you dolls to take a moment and #SwagSalute a friend or shero you find FLY! Too often us women, young and old, do a lot of tearing each other down and not enough of lifting each other up. Let's encourage each other dolls, if you see a doll who is FLY show her some love and shoot her a #SwagSalute. Today I would like to #SwagSalute my cuzzo Taherra whom I love to pieces and just wanted to take a minute to let her know that I think she is an awesome woman, wife, mother, daughter, big cuz and friend. I love you and am so proud of you and all your wonderful accomplishments! 

#DiaryofFly For the first time EVER my weight gain is starting to show in my legs (in a bad way....i.e. Cellulite), they are certainly my most prized possessions and favorite body part. I initially hated these pics but instead of being self-consceince and deleting these big chubby thighed pics I am posting them, embracing my new found curves and loving the skin I'm in, no mater what! 
 The FIT:
Leather Jacket: BCBG
Sweathshirt: Neiman Marcus for Target, Proenza Schouler, try this one HERE
Booties: Alexander Wang
Skirt: Charlotte Rouse, similar HERE and HERE
Button Up: Ann Taylor 
Necklace: Express
Bag: Gifted by my girl Style Is She
Beanie: GAP, also HERE
We all have our insecure moments, what are yours loves and how do you overcome them?

Black & Blue

Hello lovelies, long time no post! I've missed you dolls!! I'm back at it and finally feeling up to taking some pics, I've missed you dolls terribly and can't wait to get back to "blogging" business.

So for this post I'm keeping it simple with a classic color combo of blue and black mixed with a lil edge and twirl. You dolls know how much I love a twirl ;-) This coat from ASOS I scored last year is still one of my favs. The extremely flattering fit n' flare silhouette and mix of military maven and girlie fun makes for a perfect combo. I paired this look with faux leather leggings and my gorgeous Aldo Rise Collection heels. Perfect look to go run errands in on a Saturday afternoon. I mean everyone goes grocery shopping in heels and fur right??? ;-)

The Fit:
Coat: ASOS, also loving THIS one
Leather leggings: Nordstrom, also HERE
Heels: Rise for ALDO collection, lovin THIS pair
Clutch: Old
Faux Fur Collar: Wilsons Leather
Love you dolls, and thank you so so much for your continued love and support! I have a lot of great things I can't wait to share with you dolls so stay tuned. Hope your 2013 is off to a great start!
