Flirty dresses, bold prints, bright colors, and figure flattering silhouettes all describe the Spring 2012 Nicole by Nicole Miller Collection for jc penney. All though we are having an interesting winter, I can’t wait to start shopping for the spring, especially at jc penney with this new and improved pricing system. Everyday is practically a sale and who doesn’t love sales!

Check out some of my favorite looks from the collection and the entire collection from the gallery below

The first look consists of a cocktail dress, pumps, and bold jewelry. You can never go wrong wearing a cocktail dress. Most likely you have one in your house that you have never worn or you haven’t worn in years (or maybe I’m just the guilty one). Cocktail dresses are simple and easy to accessorize. You do not have to choose red, you can choose any color that you would like, as long as it compliments your skin tone.

Date Night Look

The second look is a little more sophisticated. Cocktail dresses are usually very sexy. So if you are more conservative, you can wear a pencil skirt and a nice blouse with a pair of  ankle boots. I like the raspberry and teal color combination so I decided to mix those colors.

Dinner and Dancing

The last look is a bit spicy. It features an intricately detailed black jumpsuit with spiked heels, rosette clutch and bold cocktail ring. The design of the jumpsuit is edgy yet sexy. The straight leg allows you to wear almost any type of shoe but I would go with a pump. Because the jumpsuit is all black, I decided to add blue spiked heels for some contrast.

Jumpsuits and Blue

This is just part 1. Stay tuned for part 2 coming later this week!

Regina King was named the Social Media Ambassador for the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards. She posed for a quick photo in a uber cute and casual look.

She paired a pink sweater accented with gold jewelry blue jeans and brown boots. This is a great look to run errands, go to the movies, or even have brunch/lunch. Here are some options that will help you achieve this casual look.





Yes our beloved Halle Berry has deviated from acting, endorsing makeup, and selling perfume to sell shoes! Halle Berry has teamed up with German retailer Deichmann Shoes to create her line 5th Avenue by Halle Berry. Now Halle Berry is very low-key when it comes to dressing when shes not hitting the Red Carpet or making some type of appearance. When she is not available for photo ops, you can bet she will be in jeans a t-shirt, maxi dress, and some flat sandals. So what do you think the 45 year-old actress’ line of shoes will look like…take a look below

Halle Berry states ” it was a dream come true” to have her own collection.

“Women have always loved shoes. It’s like if your hair is not right and your shoes are not right, the woman is not right. If both of them are right, you’re pretty much OK. And shoes are a statement. They can be very sexy; they can say something about where you are in the day; they can say what your mood is; they give you a chance to accessorize. And I’m a girl that loves to change my shoes all the time. It’s an expression of who you are really. I’m a girl if I find a shoe that I really like I like to get them in all colors. I’m big on that. I can’t think of any girl who wouldn’t want her name on a brand of shoes. I think that’s pretty cool,” she said.

The line will consist of 40-designs. What is showcased here are wedges and sandals. By the looks of things, I will not be purchasing anything from this line. It seems like it is for the more “mature” (I didn’t want to say older lol) woman or for moms who have busy lifestyles and want to stay stylish. These are only 6-designs and I am hoping that the other 34 will have something with a little bit more sass.

The line will be available in the UK early March starting at £ 29.99.

What do you think about the line?

Rapper Da Brat is the latest person to be styled by the fabulous June Ambrose. Since Da Brat has been released from jail last year, she has been in somewhat of a style rut and June came to the rescue.

I love the hair! She still has a little bit of an edge, but it is not as masculine. I can do without the quilt, but overall I think it is a good look. What do you all say?

Rock it or Drop it?

Be sure to check out June’s show on VH1 which has been pushed back until March 19, 2012
