Looks from the Emmys 2014

Hello All,

I'm sorry to say this, but I didn't watch the Emmy Awards on Sunday, August 24, because I was watching another show that aired at the same time, but I did see a few clips.  Even though I didn't get to watch all of the Emmys, I saw some amazing looks from some of the celebrities through social media.  So, even though I am three days late, I will show looks from the Emmys 2014 that I liked and disliked (you have to excuse me b/c there are some people whose names I do not know).


KeKe Palmer

Halle Berry

Heidi Klum

Julia Louis- Dreyfus

Julia Roberts

Girl from Orange is the New Black

Gwen Stefani

Angela Bassett

Okay (Something Else Can Be Done)

Kerry Washington- not feeling the details on dress

Unknown Actress- length can be longer

Claire Danes- this dress makes her look frumpy, plus 
she blends in with the red carpet

Unknown Actress- dress is too basic; simple neckline
with mermaid skirt; should have added some type of jewelry

 Not So Favorite

Lena Dunham- a hot mess!!

I want to leave with this picture of Heidi Klum and Zac Posen

Take Pride in Yourself!

Hello All,

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of posts and conversations about how women should take pride in their appearance.  My classmate and friend, prophetess Tera Carissa Hodges, had a discussion on her Facebook page that stated the following:

"Ladies, be mindful of how you come out of the house. Have some pride in your appearance. I'm not saying you have to be in full face, but look presentable. Don't look like you just rolled out the bed and couldn't bother to get the lint out your hair or brush your teeth. Appearance is not all about clothes. Snap a picture of your teeth. Do they need whitening? If you are natural, don't confuse that with being unkept. Head over to Youtube for a tutorial. Looking good is not all about looking good for a man, learn to look good because you VALUE how you present yourself to the public."-TCH

When I read this on my news feed, I was so excited to give my opinion on it.  Lately, no matter if I am in my hometown, or my current city, I have seen women, especially young women, come out in public like this:
Wearing too tight/too little clothing in public

Strange, Bizarre, Weird News- All True
Exposing too much cleavage

There are more examples, but it will be too much to put on here, and yes, I am in my feelings with this issue.  I want to say this to all women: our bodies are a jewel, and I am tired of seeing you all tarnish it.   So, I want to give you some tips on how to present yourself in public:
  1. Wear clothing that does not show the improper parts of your body (nip slip, butt crack, almost exposed crotch, etc.)
  2. Make sure your clothing fit (buttons do not look like they are about to pop open, your pants can actually fit your bottom, etc.).
  3. Please take the time to comb your hair! If your hair is relaxed, either flat iron it, or use rollers.  If your hair is natural, you have so many options! Opt for two-strand twists, beautiful curls or waves, or you can wear a blow-out, but please, let the bonnet go, and take the time to comb your hair!
  4. Invest in makeup.  I'm not saying to wear full face, but it is good to have some color on your face.  If you do not wear eyeshadow, consider eyeliner and mascara.  Also, if you do not wear lipstick, tinted lip balm or lip gloss is another alternative to lipstick. (Elf {} has a great selection of tinted lip balm, lip stains, and lip glosses, and they are all under $5)
  5. Wear age appropriate clothing!  If you are over 30, let Aeropostale and Abercrombie & Fitch go!
  6. Invest in a belt!  This accessory is great for pants that have a low rise, and it also helps your pants stay on your waist.
  7. Invest in pieces like blazers, cardigans, etc.  They work well with any look.
I want to leave with this quote that I found on Google+

Stay Fabulous, Take Pride in Yourself, and Invest in You!

Until Next Time!!

Haute Couture

Hello All,

I am a huge fan of Pinterest.  I'm always on the site for new inspiration, whether its fashion, home, beauty, etc.  I love looking at haute couture and avant garde looks for inspiration.  So, I was on Pinterest a few minutes ago, and I found this Haute Couture board, which was created by a young lady named Meriyay.  She has pinned the most beautiful haute couture looks you would every see.  Here are a few of them:

New Life in Dallas

Hello All,

As you all know, I have just moved to Dallas, TX.  Even though I have been here for over a few weeks, I have to say that I like it here.  It is very different.  It is hot (over 100 degrees!), but at the same time, there are so many things to do.

This place is also great for fashion opportunities.  Since I've been here, I've had more people to contact me for freelance work.  I'm very excited.  The job I'm working is great, and I have more opportunities in my field. 

I'm currently working to promote myself in Dallas.  I'm thinking of doing more fashion shows, and promoting myself on social media.  I've created a page on Etsy account (, and put three of my looks in my shop to see who will buy.

I've also been busy creating looks for myself as well.  I've created an outfit, and wore it to school about two weeks ago.

Denim Shirt- created in 2005
Harem Kite Pants- created in 2014

Everyone loved this look! These pants are becoming very popular, so I'm thinking of putting them in my Etsy shop as well.  Will you buy these pants? 

I have to design some other looks so I can start a fashion show again.

Until Next Time!
