Happy National Handbag Day


Hola!  Happy Friday to you all!  Did you know that today is a holiday?  Well it is National Handbag Day!  Deemed by the ladies behind the Purse Blog, today is a day to celebrate something that almost all women love…handbags.  I must say that I have always loved a fab bag (and shoe) over clothes any day which is why this is one of my new favorite holidays.

I have selected a few of my favorite bags that I would totally splurge on it if my bank account allowed it.  Featured a crossbody, backpack, clutch, bucketbag, a tote and more…there is something for the handbag lover in all of us!  Let me know your thoughts and don’t forget to share what bag you plan to rock today.  Enjoy NHD!

Friday Sass—Lady Luxe


Hola peeps!  Happy Friday to you all!  Since fall has officially arrived I’ve had the urge to adorn my body in opulent fabrics and textures…soft cashmere, rich wool and smooth leather.  Today sass—Luxe Chic is a reflection of all of my cravings.  I plan to replicate this look without the huge price tags very soon.  Take a peek and let me know your thoughts.  Enjoy your weekend!

Friday Sass—Luxe Chic


Hola peeps!  Happy Friday to you all!  I am so happy that the weekend is near as it has been pretty hectic for me as of late.  Also with the change of weather I have been slowing it down a bit however that doesn’t stop Friday’s Sass–Luxe Chic.  Since the cooler temps are starting to creep in that means that it is all out sweater weather and when paired with luxe fabrics like leather and suede makes all the more tolerable.  Don’t you agree?  Take a peek at this ensemble and let me know your thoughts.  I definitely would rock this look at work, to a dinner date and out on the town!  Don’t forget to dress warm and fashionable this weekend…enjoy!

Friday Sass—Fall Ready


Hola!  Finally the week is coming to an end and we can jumpstart this weekend…Happy Friday!  It’s hard to believe that summer has come to a close and fall is here (especially in NYC).  I am all about summer weather however I cannot deny that I adore fall clothes.  That is why today’s sass is called Fall Ready, cause I’m all in!  This look is definitely something that I would rock to work, hanging out with friends and even date night.  It is just a casual yet put together look that works in any setting.  Do you agree?  Have a fun-filled weekend!

Events—Motions & Essence Fearless Style Lounge


Hola peeps!  Last Wednesday I attended the Fearless Style Lounge which was sponsored by Essence Magazine and Motions hair care.  The event was hosted by Pamela Edwards-Christiani, Essence Beauty and Style Director and Ursula Stephen, Motions Celebrity Stylist (ahem think of RiRi’s pixie cut–she did that).  It was the perfect way to end a very hectic NYFW!  I had great time and left with some great new hairstyle ideas to try.  Take a peek at the pics…enjoy!

Celebrity hairstylist and Global Ambassador for Motions South Africa Ursula Stephen doing a fierce braided updo on a client.

Bun knots (or so I call it)–this is another fun style created by Ursula.

This client’s braids were transformed into a big twisted bun.

My friend Sade (@afrochicas) curls were elevated with side twists and picked out to add volume.

Thoughts on these looks?  Are you planning on trying any of these styles?  Do tell!

NYFW—Diane von Furstenberg Spring/Summer 2015


Hola peeps!  Well NYFW has come to a close however I still have lots of shows, events and pics to share.  Today I am showing Diane von Furstenberg’s SS15 show which was earlier this week.  I just adore DVF as her collections are always so chic yet very wearable and this one didn’t disappoint.  Prepare to see lots of graphic prints, bright yellow and floor grazing dresses.  Take a peek and let me know if you love it just as much as I do.  Enjoy!

Fashion—NYFW Day 6


Hola peeps!  NYFW is still going strong and it is Day 6!  Today’s look is all about being chic and classy.  In the past the rule has been that sequins were reserved for formal events but in the fashion world rules are made to be broken.  I say they can be rocked during the day or night and dressed up or down.   I paired this skirt with a knit pullover with an embellished collar, Jimmy Choo nude pumps and flashy accessories to elevate the ensemble.  Oh you can’t do New York Fashion Week without your iPhone, so you may as well spruce that up with a Henri Bendel cover that pays homage to lady liberty herself.  Love!

I hope that you are enjoying the posts as I have tons of coverage and pics coming your way!
