monochromatic color love

Hi loves.  How was your weekend?  The hubs and I took Baby M to the pumpkin patch and just chilled and rested.  It has gotten COLD here in Atlanta.  I had to go on and turn the heat on.  I want this Fall/Winter to hurry up and leave just as fast as it came. hahaha  Ya’ll know I HATE the cold!!!

Monochromatic….what the heck is that, you ask?  Well, the dictionary definition is:  mon·o·chro·mat·ic (m n -kr -m t k). adj. 1. Having or appearing to have only one color And wikipedia’s definition is: all the colors (tints, tones, and shades) of a single hueIn a nut shell, you basically wear the same colors but in different shades.  So don’t put those colors away just yet, have fun!!!  Don’t be afraid to wear color this Fall/Winter.

Happy Wednesday loves.  I hope your week has been going good so far.  So sorry for the quick post, but I’m super busy with baby M tonight.  I am loving these faux leather paneled pants from H&M and guess how much they were…. $12.95!!  They also came in oxblood but they didn’t have my size in that color, so I just bought the black pair.  I can’t wait to break out my leather pants and skirts!! LOL  Let’s talk about these peep toe booties.  Can you believe I’ve had them for YEARS and never even worn them.  I think I bought  them from TJ Maxx, its been so long, I can’t remember!  This was my first time wearing them… the story of my closet.  I have tons of items still brand new with tags, never been worn.  A shame, I know!!!

I met up with Trina last week to go to a Bloomingdale’s Men’s Fashion Show hosted by Jezebel Magazine.  The menswear was HOT HOT HOT!!!!!  Two looks absolutely caught my eye because I knew the Hubs would be caught wearing them.  I could so see him in these outfits and he loves him some Cole Haan shoes!!

Favorite Look #1

Hugo Boss clothing / Cole Haan shoes

Favorite Look #2

Can’t remember clothing but Cole Haan are the boots!

Aren’t those boots DOPE????  How do you feel about the leather trend?


FNO 2012



*waving*  HELLOOOOOO loves!!  I tell you, I am sooo happy to be back!  I missed ya’ll so so much!  As you can see, I’m no longer preggo!!  I had a beautiful baby boy on June 24th and I have been devoting my life strictly to him.  He’s such a JOY and is oh so cute… I just can’t stop stealing kisses from him.  hahaha  I’ll be sure to share pictures of his very soon.  If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve already seen my little man! 

OK, so yesterday was Fashion’s Night Out.  It was my first event since having my son.  I had a ball.  The BFF’s also known as Blog Fab Fashionistas, had an awesome event where they hopped from store to store at Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza.  I didn’t make it to Lenox but arrived just in time to Phipps to hit up Lilly Pulitzer where they had a fabulous Pink Lemonade Mohito popsicles (yes it was non-alcoholic).  Then we proceeded to Belk where we walked the red carpet and took tons of pictures and we ended our night at Twist where we all laughed, ate and just had a FUN Time.

What did you do for Fashion’s Night Out?



Grey, White & “Red Bottoms”

                                                   H&M white blazer ǀ Random jumpsuit & ring ǀ Tiffany bracelet ǀ Christian Louboutin pumps 

Happy Tuesday lovelies!!!  What an awesome weekend it was!!  Did you all have a FAB weekend too?  The Fashionable Atlanta Blogger Meetup was Saturday and it was a HUGE success.  I met so many lovely ladies and it was so great to finally meet some of the FAB Bloggers that I’ve met through the blogosphere.  Talk about a room full of women that live, think and breathe…  ALL THINGS FASH!ON.  I’ll talk more about it later, but be sure to head over to the FASHIONABLE ATLANTA Facebook page to view some of the pictures uploaded by many of the bloggers in attendance!  I had so much fun in being apart of planning this FAB event!! 

Now to the OUTFIT, I wore this outfit yesterday.  It was actually nice throughout the morning, then the rain hit about 1:00pm and stopped just long enough for me to get these shots in.  Before I was done, the sky became grey again and the rain started again.  By the time I left the office, the sky was back cleared and the sun was shining its beautiful face again.  BUT, then around 7pm, it POURED again and pretty much stayed that way all night. LOL  I’m just happy the sky cleared up long enough for me to take these shots. LOL


I love this jumpsuit.  I actually have had it a couple years, but it never gets old to me.  I don’t even remember where I bought it.  I think at a random flea market, but I just can’t remember.  It’s so comfy and I love how I can dress it up AND wear it casual too.  I love versatile clothing, if you haven’t realized that already. LOL

I thought this picture turned out so cool.  I look like I’m glowing!!!  LOL  I guess the lighting and the way the sun was beaming on me, left this cool effect. Hubby says, my guardian angel was hovering over me!!  **smiles**

Now lets get to the shoes… You ALL know how I feel about “Red Bottoms” aka Christian Louboutins.  My motto is: Who says DIAMONDS are a girls best friend.. give me Louboutins!!!!!   I love ‘em and I think every woman should splurge atleast ONCE just to have a pair in their closet.  LOL LOL  These are my only pair, but I will be getting another pair, SOON! hehehe  HOPEFULLY, anyway! hahhaha 

Have a Fabulous week lovelies!!!  SMOOCHES!!!!

 Don’t forget to head over to the FASHIONABLE ATLANTA Facebook page.  If your in Atlanta, be sure to sign up too so you know about all the fab events going on!!!


Sun Sun Sundress

Thrifted sundress and bag│JustFab shoes│Michael Kors watch│Tiffany bracelet│Steve Madden sunglasses


Happy Wednesday!!!  I hope all of you GORG ladies and gents had a great day, I did!  The weather here in Atlanta has been scorching HOT and I am loving every bit of it. LOL  We even hit 100 degrees a couple of days.  I love the SUN!!!!  I don’t know if you can tell too much, but I have been doing nothing but swimming and laying in the sun working on my tan.  Summer is by far my best time of the year!!   Give me heat over cold any day!!!  LOL

I purchased this sundress a few months ago while thrifting.  You won’t guess what I paid… $3.50.  SCORE!!!!  I also found the straw bag that I can also carry as a clutch for $.50.  Yep, I am a true bargain shopper.  You can’t beat those prices!!  LOL  I loved this sundress because of the way it tied on the shoulders and the floral print.  FAB!  It just screamed “SUMMER”.   I wore it to the office with a blazer over it, but if I were to wear this just on the weekend, I’d probably pair it with flat sandals.  Make it look a little more comfy.

I know most of you have heard about the Fashionable Atlanta Bloggers Meet Up.  I hope as many of you that can come will plan to attend!  I can’t wait to meet everyone.  It’s going to be loads of FUN FUN FUN.  Head over here or to my girl Fashionista Next Door page for all the details!!!

All White Everything Part II

Happy Saturday beauties!!!  You may be looking at the title of this post thinking… wait a minute, I remember that title.  You may remember it from here.  I participated in the Bloggers Do it Better assignment which was WHITE OUT!  I actually wore this outfit weeks before I knew that was going to be our assignment and when I saw the assignment, I decided not to post this outfit but to do a whole new outfit, which I did here!

I LOVE these pants.  I purchased them at this consignment shop that I go to often!  They also have online shopping, so if your not in the Atlanta area, you can still get your shop on at this fabulous shop.  I purchased them a couple years ago and never wore them until now.  The 70’s trend is back in effect…wide legs, etc. etc.  I wore them here too.  This time, I made this look a little more “office friendly”.  Everyone thought I had on a white suit, put I just paired my H&M white blazer with the pants.  It sure did look like a pant suit, huh? LOL

It’s that time again for “Bloggers Do It Better” aka BDIB.  Last week, it was all about Color Blocking.  You can see my version here.  Today its all about White Out.  You got it… all white everything!!!  When I think of white, I think… pure, innocent, fresh and clean.  I’ve had this dress a long time.  I think I bought it 4 years ago.  I’m pretty sure it was at least 4 years ago because I bought it to wear to an All White Party that the hubs and I were invited to and I was still in the midst of planning our wedding.  I only wore it that one time and its been hanging in my closet waiting for me to pull it out again. LOL  When I saw last week that our assignment would be WHITE OUT, I knew exactly what I was going to wear. LOL   She was actually still hanging in the cleaners bag.  I bought it online, but I can not remember for the life of me, which online store I purchased it from.  I loved this dress because it sorta reminded me of Marilyn Monroe’s famous dress.  That’s what caught my eye when I saw it.

I knew I didn’t want to wear white from head to toe, but instead from head to ankle! LOL  I knew I wanted to wear these pair of Christian Louboutins.  Hubby surprised one day with these….isn’t he a sweetheart?  He knows my obsession with Shoes, especially with “red bottoms”.  No, I don’t have a collection like Khloe Kardashion, LOL!  But this one pair keeps me content…. for now! LOL    I’ve had them for quite awhile and I must say this is probably my 3rd time wearing them. LOL  I still have these on my wish list.

Atlanta Haute Spot: Seven 74 Accessories

jumpsuit-H&M│belt-Nine West│bag-Marshall's│shoes-KAYLAS (Sole Society)│watch-Michael Kors│assorted bracelets-H&M

Hello beautiful people!!!  Remember I told you I attended a FAB event last week that consisted of some GORGEOUS accessories?  Wait until you see all of my faves.  I had the pleasure of attending STYLE ENVY with Adrienne of Sadiddy Magazine, Jai of The Bare Skinny, and Eboni of Fashionista Next Door at Seven74 Accessories.  I was going to wear something totally different but opted for this cute jumper from H&M that you may remember I showed on in my video haul here.  Isn’t it adorable?  I added a belt because I felt it was a little too casual, so I wanted to dress it up a bit but not too much.  I wore my coral KAYLAS again.  ( I so love these shoes…well I love ALL my shoes! LOL)  You may remember I debuted them first here.  They were such a huge hit and sold out so fast, that Sole Society decided to bring them BACK!  You may still have a chance to snag you up a pair if you hurry!!!!

 It’s that time again… Everybody Everywear.  I always look forward to participating and seeing all the FAB ways other fashion lovers have styled different items.  The item for the month of April is THE MAXI.  I love Maxi’s.  They are just so comfy.  You can dress them up with pumps or dress them down with a pair of flip flops.  I have so many Maxi’s (8 to be exact) and it took quite awhile for me to decide which Maxi I was going to rock.   I wear my Maxi so many different ways.  I might wear one as a swimsuit coverup, or for dinner with the hubby on a Summer night.  There is really no wrong way to wear a Maxi.  I decided to rock this BCBGMAXAZRIA Maxi that I purchased years ago from TJ Maxx.  I bought this fedora a couple weeks ago from Target and I thought it would go perfectly.  I had a lot of fun doing this photoshoot!!!  Can you tell?  LOL

original hunter wellies

Happy Saturday!!  If your in Atlanta, I hope you are going to get out and enjoy this beautiful day!  This is an old outfit post, I wore this on Thursday (hence, another bad hair day..for ME anyway).  We got about a 1/2 inch of snow Wednesday night and it was rainy so I decided to wear by Hunter wellies.  By noon, everything cleared up and it actually turned out to be a lovely day with no rain and all the snow melted.  I did get one little shot of snow that hadn’t melted because it was still in the shade. LOL

I have plenty of pair of rain boots and these fit no different than the ones that I bought from Target.  What I do like about them, however, are how tal they go up my leg.  I also like that you can buy the Welly Socks also.  They keep your feet really warm and comfy and they are perfect to wear in rain, snow, wet weather.  That slushy weather that you may get, these are PERFECT for that.  They are also good to wear when going fishing and in muddy areas.  They are so easy to clean.  Just hose off and VOILA, they are clean.  If you are interested in purchasing them, you can here



a few things about ME!

A fab chica, Crystal, who I met through this wonderful thing called “fashion blogging” tagged me in her “Get To Know Me” post.  So, TAG, I’m it!  Here are few things you didn’t know about me…

1.  Why did you create your blog?

I created my blog because of my love for FASHION!  I’ve always loved blogging and had a blog previously that was all about Fashion, Gossip and Entertainment (www.4thestylishandsexy.blogspot.com).  I did that blog for about 2 years then got bored.  I thought to myself, why promote celebrities and just promote ME by showing what I love.  So I launched this blog in November 2010 and its been a fun ride ever since. 

2. What kind of blogs do you follow?

99.9% of the blogs I follow are all about Fashion, Trends, and Shopping.  Are you surprised?  LOL

3.  Favorite makeup brands?

I would have to say MAC, hands down.  I will not wear anything else.  I have sensitive skin and I dont wear much make-up anyway.  But MAC, in my opinion, is the best for me.  I do however wear Diorshow mascara, just beacuse I’m not too happy with Mac’s mascara line.  I usually get that at Sephora.  I actually did a google search to find the top 5 mascara’s and Diorshow was one that was listed.  My girlifriend, Karrie, she runs a tutoring blog,  actually introduced me to Sephora so that’s how I discoved the Diorshow and have been happy with it ever since!


4.  Favorite clothing brands?

 BCBG has got to be my favorite brand of clothing.  But I am open to wear anything.  I don’t really care too much about brand names, if I like it, I’m buying it! LOL

BCBG Spring 2011

5. Your indispensable make-up product? 

MAC lipglass & Diorshow mascara…if I’ve got these two items, I’m GOOD!!! 

6. Your favorite colour? 

My favorite color, hands down, is BLACK!!  I’ve always liked this color.  My bridesmaids even wore black dresses in my wedding!  It’s just a classic, elegant color! 

My Wedding 8/2006

7. Your perfume?

I have two favorite perfumes.  Gucci Guilty and Dolce&Gabanna Light Blue.  Gucci Guilty comes in this sexy bottle and the smell is just as sexy as the bottle.  Dolce &Gabanna Light Blue is so soft and airy and sweet and pure.  I just love it!!

Gucci Guilty


Dolce&Gabanna Light Blue

8. Favorite film?

 My all time favorite movie is “Pretty Woman” with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere.  A very close 2nd is “Love & Basketball” with Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan.


9.  What country would you like to visit and why? 

I want to visit PARIS!!!!   I’ve always wanted to go ever since I was a little girl.  I took French in school and I have just always dreamed to go.  I want to shop till I drop when I go and see every piece of what Paris has to offer!!!  I need to spend atleast a month or two there so I can see EVERYTHING!!!!!


10. Which online shopping sites are you most addicted to?



I am passing this on to:

Eboni @ The Fashionista Next Door

Fuyume @ Fuyume

An @ Haute Pink Pretty

I hope you learned some new things about me that you didn’t know already!!!  :)
