Style Sunday: Christmas Sparkle….

Style Sunday: Christmas Sparkle….

Hey y’all quick post today as I am feeling a little under the weather. Here’s what I wore today to church today , to celebrate Christmas Sunday!

Silver Sequin Midi Skirt: Dynamite Clothing. This skirt retailer for $44.95. While it is a little on the pricey side, it is of good quality material. Let’s call it an early Christmas gift to myself ☺️

Black Sheer Top With Bead Detailing: Forever 21 . I found this top on the sale rack for only $13.00! Such a classy piece that can be worn a number of different ways.

I paired this outfit with a simple pair of black ankle booties that I purchased last year at Old Navy.

To finish off this look I used some red lipstick ( Mary Jo K by Kylie Cosmetics) to add a special Christmas touch!

Til next time,

Style Sunday: Striped Pants and Fall Colours…

Style Sunday: Striped Pants and Fall Colours…

Hey y’all!

Quick style post today. Just wanted to quickly share this fall outfit I threw together today. It is COLD here where I live and I needed an outfit that was functional, warm and comfortable as I needed to wear it to church and to an event today.

Let’s start with the pants. I found them at Forever 21 ( surprise surprise lol) These pants  are a polyester blend, high waisted pant. Extremely comfortable and warm. These pants were a little on the pricey side for me ( y’all know I’m a bargain shopper)  at $24.90 but I do believe these will be a staple piece in my fall wardrobe so I’m sure I’ll get my money’s worth! 🙂

I paired the pants with a white cold shoulder blouse that I believe I purchased at a store called Sirens a year or so ago. I can’t remember what the retail price was but I do believe it was between $10-$15 dollars.

To finish off the look,  I added a Burgundy felt hat and camel colour tie -up mule shoes, both from Aldo Shoes.

To keep me warm, I wore my dark camel coloured double breasted pea coat. I purchased this coat from H&M and it retails for $69.99. This is one item I didn’t mind spending a little more on as it is an everyday piece.

I kept my makeup simple nude lips( Kat Von D “Sanctuary”), Naked Heat Palette (shades “Ember” “Scorched” and “Low Blow”)  on my eyes with my Fenty Beauty black eyeliner.  (Flyliner) I set my face with Ben Nye Powder in the shade “Chestnut” and that’s it!

I’m liking the 70’s inspired pieces that are coming out this season!  I must admit I wasn’t feeling it at first, but once I took some time to put some pieces together, I’m finally feeling a vibe! Looking forward to sharing some more pieces with you in the coming weeks!

What is  your fall style leaning towards this year? I think I’m gonna be hobo chic 🙂

Till next time…

Sunday Style: The One With The Black Jumpsuit…

Sunday Style: The One With The Black Jumpsuit…

Hey y’all!

Follow me on this tale of a girl who had an event to go to, yet had absolutely nothing to wear! The girl is me and this was my dilemma yesterday…

Sigh,,, so I’ve known about this event I had to go to for weeks now, yet hadn’t bothered to look for anything to wear. So Saturday afternoon, approximately about 5 hours before the event was to start  ( Thank goodness we were on Caribbean/African time, so 5 hours was really 8 🙂 ) I found myself in the mall with my homegirl ( who was also attending the event) SCRAMBLING!!! Guys, we went into 3 or 4 or 5 or 10 stores, with NO SUCCESS! I was literally about to give up and pull out a repeat outfit ( ugh the horror! just kidding ) when I sauntered in to one final store and.. there it was … the black jumpsuit.

First of all, I didn’t even see this jumpsuit. I saw another olive green one that was so gorgeous, just not the colour scheme I wanted for the evening. I was literally about to give up for real, when my little sis ( shout out to you Shanice) found this little gem and brought it back for me to try on.

The jumpsuit is made of a thick polyester material. It boasts a tapered leg and a v-neck scrappy detailing that is to die for! Here’s how I styled it and purchasing details!

IMG_4722IMG_4780

The jumpsuit itself was so cute that I didn’t want to add too much to it jewellery wise. I simply added a silver and crystal beaded necklace. I also added a silver cuff bangle. Both were gifted to me so I’m not sure where they came from.

The black jumpsuit is from a store called Dynamite. It retails for $59.95 ( Canadian Currency) Purchase here

The black cropped blazer jacket was a Target find about 3 years ago when Target made its failed Canadian expansion 😦  On the bright side, I managed to pick that little gem up for… wait for it… $5.00 measly Canadian dollars ! 🙂 🙂

The shoes are my all time favourite shoes, black faux suede ballerina heels from Aldo years ago. These shoes are actually so comfortable. I wore them all night and even did a two step in them with no aching feet at the end of the night.

I threw on a Bauhau5 ( Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick) on my lips along with a plethora of other things on my face ( let me know if you want to know details ) and out the door I went!

I guess waiting till the last minute worked out for me this time!
Have an amazingly stylish week and remember…

Style Sunday: Black and White Striped Pants…

Style Sunday: Black and White Striped Pants…

Hey ya’ll

I am currently travelling so this is a quick post today of an outfit I wore awhile back to a concert where I was ministering in song. I needed something comfortable yet still stylish. Here’s what I came up with,,,

IMG_4538

I chose a pair of black and white striped palazzo pants ( wide legged pants) with an elasticized waist, pockets and a self tie belt. These pants are the most comfortable pants ever. They are made out of  rayon material, which make them so light and airy. Perfect for an unusually warm spring day.

I paired these pants with. a simple black cotton long sleeved bodysuit and some faux velvet loafers. I also threw on a floppy felt hat!

I kept my makeup extremely simple: Just foundation, eyeliner, highlighter  and lipstick.

Outfit Details: All pieces were purchased at Forever 21! 🙂
Makeup Details:  Foundations ( NARS in the shade “Benares”) Eyeliner ( Maybelline Unstoppable in “Onyx”) Highlighter ( Kylie Cosmetics in “Salted Caramel “)  Lipstick ( Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in “Bauhau5)

Have a wonderful stylish week and remember…

Style Sunday: The One With The Sparkly Cape…

Style Sunday: The One With The Sparkly Cape…

Hey y’all!

I’m back again with a quick edition of Style Sunday! You ever look in your closet and think to yourself, “I have nothing to wear!!”  That was me this morning. Mind  you, its not like I didn’t have options ( that would be incredibly false and ungrateful of me to say) but there was nothing I FELT like wearing today… until I peeked way deep in the back of my little closet ( I really need to spring clean it… sigh)  and voila! This beautiful piece jumped out at me.

I purchased this piece months upon months ago when Forever 21 had a sale on all their clearance items(  I love a good clearance rack 🙂 )  The piece I speak of is a beautiful silver sequin cape jacket.

This item isn’t available anymore, nor can I find anything online that compares, so I’ll just show you how I styled it today : )

IMG_4475

I paired a long sleeved black body suit with a knee length black pencil skirt. This acted as a neutral base for the sequinned cape. The cape has a hook eye fastener in the front that when fastened , takes on the appearance of a  really tailored tuxedo jacket. The sleeves on the cape are three-quarter length, which allows for easy mobility. I finished this outfit off with a pair of patent leather ankle -strap pointed toe stilettos ( sidetone: I have had these shoes since 2003 and they are still going strong! LOL! I don’t get rid of anything clearly … smh), I didn’t wear any jewelry other than the two rings I wear daily becuase the cape was enough of a statement piece on its own.

My makeup was minimal today because I woke up super late! Foundation ( Makeup Forever HD Invisible Cover Foundation in shade 180) Eyeliner ( Maybelline Unstoppable in “Onyx”) Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder , Liquid Lipstick ( Kat Von D “Sanctuary”) and  Highlight (Kylighter in “Banana Split”)

That’s it for today folks! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and remember…

Style Sunday: The One With The Blue Kimono…

Hey guys!

Quick post here! Today is a busy day, but I couldn’t let the day pass by without sharing today’s outfit!

It feels like spring has finally sprung in my city but as my fellow Canadians know, it could be beautiful today and a blizzard tomorrow. So I am enjoying the beautiful sunshine while I have it!

Today I wanted to incorporate some colour back into my wardrobe. I have been wearing loads of black, grey and olive greens  this winter season but the true essence of me, lives for colourful pieces! The more colour the better!

So, today I paired a simple black three- quarter length short sleeved dress with a long  length short sleeved blue kimono. The dress I purchased years ago from Forever 21 ( surprise surprise 🙂 ) and the kimono was purchased years ago at H&M.

Here are links to similar pieces:
Dress: (purchase here)

I paired this outfit with a pair of black ballerina style stilettos  from Aldo and a pearl necklace and bracelet set from Lia Sophia.
