I usually don’t get this dressed up on Christmas. I rarely wear jeans on holidays, but there was something special about today lol. My “maxi skirt” is actually a dress that I purchased from jc penney on Black Friday. I paired it with a v-neck black long-sleeve shirt from 6pm.com and my sequin vest by Apostrophe from Sears (now Metaphor). I finished the look with Michael Antonio zippered booties from 6pm.com and silver jewelry.

Check out the hair!

I love the cranberry color it gives off in the sunlight. In regular house lighting it looked more like oxblood, but outside my dress/skirt was more vibrant.

I had a magical Christmas and I hope you all did as well. Until next time…

Hey my loves!

I was browsing Essence.com and came across two photos. One of our First Lady Michelle Obama and Selita Ebanks. Both were wearing the illustrious color Royal Blue.

Now I am partial to the color because of the greatest sorority ever, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. I also like the color because of it’s meaning. The color blue is often associated with depression, but it also means peace, loyalty, confidence, and harmony.

So here are a few picks that will have you looking and feeling confident in royal blue!

 

These are the star items of the look.

See how I paired them….

I was asked to do a post by Kim on affordable Over-the-Knee boots. The price range was no more than $200. I found some great options that are flat and some with heels.

These boots are very practical, especially for the price. They can be worn above the knee or folded below for a different look.

I tweeted yesterday that I was in a creative mood so I went right to polyvore and created these two sets. Look #1 is very sophisticated! Depending on your work environment this can be a look for the office. With the right make up and maybe a change in jewelry, this look can easily go from day to night.

Cream Knotted Crop Top, 25 GBP
McQ Rolled-up cotton shorts, $95
Michael Antonio Women’s Tiernan Platform Sandal, $41
ASOS Buckle Detail Satchel Bag, $47
Boho Round Wood Drop Earrings, 3.95 GBP
Flower enamel bangle pack, 12 GBP
Chocolate Multi-Stranded Beaded Costume Necklace, 9.99 GBP

Look #2 is definitely urban glam. The white butto-up is definitely a must-have in every woman’s closet. Paired with a pair of denim shorts and a bright shoe, you are ready to hit the town. This can be a day shopping look or even for drinks after work with the girls. The large top balances out the shorts and heels so you won’t look like a street walker lol 

Women’s AE Pintuck Boyfriend Shirt (White), $30
Women’s AE Boy Fit Bermuda Shorts (Medium Destroyed), $30
Promise Harbor Strappy Gladiator Sandal, $25
Old Navy Womens Faux-Leather Zip Hobos, $25

All of the items used in both sets were under $50! You can be fly on a budget!

Would you rock any of these looks? Which one?
