Style Files: Mel B’s Super Chic Looks

Pictures165

Our favorite former Spice Girl besides Victoria Beckham and favorite X-Factor judge has been on it with her fashion game lately. Mel B. She chooses the right pieces to highlight those curves in a classy way. She is not over the top with her hair and makeup and she lets the clothes speak. Look One-Office Chic- I love pencil skirts because, when the fit is right and with a  nice pair of heels, it shows that you mean business. Mel B. paired her skirt with black pumps, beige button up, yellow birkin, and a fly pair of shades. This is a great fall look. Since it's still summer I would opt for a pencil skirt that's not leather and a short sleeve or sleeveless blouse. In the office I'd throw on a blazer for a more professional look. Look Two-Date Night- This look is the perfect balance of sexiness and class. She's showing her killer legs while covered up top. I love lace because it is super … [Read More...]

Motivation Monday: Next Steps

motivation2

Hello My Loves! Yes it is been forever and a day, but I am happy to say that I officially finished graduate school last Sunday! Working on my 2nd Masters was definitely a challenge. I was in an accelerated program and completed what normally takes two years or longer for some people in 14 months. The program consists of six weeks of pre-course work, two 5-week intensives (five weeks for Summer I and five weeks for summer II) and a 10-month long internship. As I said in an earlier post practically everything suffered because of the intensity of the program. I was so busy I barely wore heels and if you know me, you know I love my heels. The last 2 1/2 weeks were the most intense. I haven't pulled so many all-nighters since undergrad over eight years ago. Completing this degree was by far one of the most challenging and rewarding things I've done in my life. My degree will be conferred in … [Read More...]

Motivation Monday: Life Update!

update2

It's been WAYYYYYYYY too long since I've written a Motivation Monday post, so instead of giving you all of the fluff I'll just tell you what's been up. 1. Work- This year I had a lot more demands with work that occupied a lot of my time. I will have some of those same responsibilities, but with a more flexible schedule this September. 2. School- In about four weeks I will have completed my 2nd Masters program. I had a year long internship (at work), which consumed a lot of my time, so as of August, I will have a lot more time to dedicate to the blog. That's mainly it. My graduate school program has been extremely intense and I am almost at the finish line. Although I haven't been posting consistently here, I have been guest posting for my friend Kim on her blog Makeup By Kim Porter. So check out a few of my beauty posts. One thing that I promised myself to work on for 2014  was to … [Read More...]

2014 BET Awards Top 4 Looks from the Red Carpet

Pictures163

The BET Awards Red Carpet was a little uneventful for me. First of all, 90% of the women showed up in white gowns. I understand that it is hot and all out in LA, but there was really no variation of color or dress style. Here are my top 4 looks from the red carpet. Eva Marcille (she just had a baby a few months ago and she looks amazing!) Amber Rose has this classic look that I love. It is not over done like some women. She kept it classy and simple. I'm not a huge fan of Adrienne Bailon, but I am a fan of Michael Costello and he was the designer of this gown. Regina Hall did something a little different in a white pants suit. I'm loving the short bob! Now two looks that I didn't particularly care for come from two very talented young women, Keke Palmer and Sevyn Streeter. So I was watching the news one day and they did this entire segment on something called "Pevage" which is … [Read More...]
