About 3 weeks ago I debuted my faux leather skater from Asos and I have been in love with that skirt since the day it arrived. Well today this love affair continues with a faux leather pencil skirt that I purchased from jc penney. I first wore this skirt on my birthday with a royal blue top and silver collar. Today I created an evening look with a faux leather pencil skirt, a black opaque and sheer top, a grey faux fur vest, a pair of black pumps, and patterned black stockings from Hanes. I kept my accessories to a minimum. I didn’t want to compete with the vest and the top so I went for a simple black and grey look.


The design on the stockings is very intricate. I felt real old school with these on. Adding a pair of patterned stockings or tights to your look is a great way to add a little flair to your outfit.


Another essential for a look like this is a bold lip. Once again I went with my favorite…MAC Ruby Woo


So there you have it! My look for my night out!

So I’ve had this Bisou Bisou dress/tunic for months now and I was tired of seeing it in my closet. I just decided to put it on one day and go about my business. This is definitely a dress you would wear if you are going to a party, lounge, or a date. I was going to none of the above lol.

I love the texture of the dress. It gives the illusion of waves.

I paired the dress with large silver hoops and my signature silver necklace. On my feet, my favorite black booties which are BCBGeneration.

On November 29th, I had the opportunity to hear from various sponsors and also network with other bloggers at Kitty Bradshaw’s Meet N’ Tweet. Kitty is one of my favorite bloggers because one she has no filters and keeps it all the way real. She is always willing to help those up and coming bloggers and she has been a great help to me and my blog. 

So at the event I got to mingle with some of my favorite bloggers such as my Kim from I Have a Degree in This, Melanie and Melissa of O So Chic, Shanequa from Temple of Glam, Patrick from The World and Mr. Sykes, Chrisitine from Tineey.com and of course my friend Kim from Makeup by Kim Porter. There were about 45 bloggers in attendance so it was great to see familiar faces and meet new bloggers.

The whole purpose of the event was to build new relationships with bloggers and sponsors. The drinks were sponsored by Barefoot Bubbly & Wines which I absolutely love and the event was held at the nRelate offices.

Many of the brands that sponsored the event were new to me so it was great to hear about their products and what they had to say.

Familiar brands like Hanes Hosiery provided all of the female attendants with the Silk Reflection Blackout Coverage opaque tights. I wore mine recently and they are amazing, seriously. Some tights that claim to be opaque are somewhat sheer, but these tights are really opaque and comfortable.

CND provided hand and body lotion from their Vanilla Collection and nail polish from the Plum Truffle Collection. Covergirl Queen Collection provided the female attendnts with lipstick. I received the cool khaki color.

Other brands that were sponsors that I was not familiar with was Squeem Magical Lingerie and Pencil Me in Cosmetics. Squeem provided all attendants with waist cinching body shapers to prevent the muffin top, or souffle top as Kitty calls it. Pencil Me in Cosmetics is a line which features vitamin enriched eye liners. How awesome is that?

One of the most compelling parts of the night came from the Angel Street Thrift/LES Service Center Charity. Kitty Bradshaw has her own line of cookies courtesy of Tasty Morsels, and 10% of the proceeds will benefit the Angel Street Thrift and Lower Eastside Service Center. Check out more information on how you can purchase the cookies and donate to a great cause here.

Other sponsors include: B Braxton for Men, Zebra Pens, Accessories Remix, Modern Courteson by YS (perfume) Emergen-C.

Thank you to all of the sponsors and a special thanks to Kitty Bradshaw for putting on a fabulous event.
