When was the last time you updated your lingerie drawer? If you are taking a long time to answer that question then this post is definitely for you. Our lingerie should be updated often, at least once every 3 months. I know that there are many of you out there that buy lingerie as often as you buy handbags and shoes, so this may not be for you. Many women have a misconception of lingerie. Some believe that lingerie just consists of sexy nighties and all things see-through and lace. That is not the case! All of the following falls in the category of lingerie or intimates: panties, bras, body shapers, camisoles, chemises, night gowns, bodysuits, robes, and a host of other items click here for a list. So why should you update your lingerie drawer? here are five reasons why!

1. To feel good– putting on new lingerie is an amazing feeling! I don’t know about you all but when I put on a new panty and bra set I feel like a new woman. I walk with a different type of confidence honestly because I feel amazing.

2. To feel confident– once I feel good this wave of confidence comes over me. It’s something about knowing that your breast are supported and sitting pretty lol. Also you should feel confident in your bedroom. Sometimes it’s ok to just throw on a t-shirt and hit the bed, but putting on a silk chemise can dramatically change how you sleep. Trust me.

3. To look good– when wearing lingerie you look better, especially if what you are wearing fits your body type. If you wear things that are too small you will look larger than you really are and you will be uncomfortable. You must first look good for yourself before looking good for someone else.

4. Look good for your mate– for those that have a significant other or just a cuddle buddy you want to look good for your mate. They enjoy seeing the sexy side of you, so give them something special to look at. Also don’t wait for a special trip or Valentine’s Day. Spice things up often to keep the fire burning in your relationship.

5. Foundation of a perfect look– if you wear the wrong type of undergarments then your clothes will not fit properly. So you must have a variety of items for the different types of garments in your wardrobe.

So hopefully I have motivated you all to update your lingerie drawer if you haven’t done so recently. Below are some options to get you started!

 

For some women, animal print is an acquired taste. Either you love it or hate, and there is rarely any type of in between. This type of print whether it is leopard, cheetah, tiger, zebra, or giraffe, can be overwhelming if taken in “large doses.” So many people opt for more subtle ways to introduce this look in to their current wardrobe. They may start with a scarf, a pair of gloves, a handbag, or even jewelry.

I am an avid animal print advocate lol. I have shoes, bags, jewelry, tops, coats and I am on the hunt for the perfect pair of animal print pants. I do not shy away from the opportunity to bring out my inner feline. If you have some reservations about incorporating animal print in to your wardrobe, one way that I encourage women to incorporate this look is with their shoes. Whether you want to try flats, pumps, platforms, wedges, or boots, any shoe with animal print will surely stand out and be the focal point of the outfit. Below you will find animal print shoes of all styles and budgets. Enjoy and happy shopping!

On April 20th one of the most anticipated films of the year is will hit the theaters. That movie is “Think Like A Man” based on the book by Steve Harvey Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. The movie stars Michael Ealy, Gabrielle Union, Terrance J, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Hart and more. The all-star cast has been doing a lot of promos and recently premiered the movie in Atlanta and New York City. Take a look at some of the looks our favorite fashionistas rocked on the red (and black) carpet.

Lala Anthony definitely knows what colors and shapes work best for her. This dress looks amazing.

Gabrielle Union simply breathtaking! Not only is the color gorgeous but I love the hint of turquoise in her ring. It really adds a nice touch.

Keisha Knight-Pulliam I love this look. Her hairstyle ages her a bit, but the full floor length skirt with the high split and the cropped top look amazing on her.

Selita Ebanks and Terrance J

I love how all of the ladies’ looks reflected some aspect of spring. Whether it was with nudes and neutrals, floral prints, coral colors, or brights they put their own unique touch on popular spring trends.

 

Hey lovelies!

I hope you all had an incredible weekend. Now it is back to the grind-work, school, etc. So like we do almost every Monday, here is the rundown of some of our favorite celebs and what they wore this weekend. Check out this weeks’ style files.

Christina Milian, Brandi and Selita Ebanks went flirty, bold, and sparkly on us this weekend. All three ladies gave us a little leg and great smiles. Brandy’s look is my favorite because it gives such a modern twist on one of Michael Jackson’s signature styles.

Next up we have Naomi Harris, Melanie Fiona and Lala Anthony. Actress Naomi Harris gives us a sweet and innocent take on a all black look. Usually when people rock all black it is edgy or sexy, but this look is on a different spectrum and I love it. Melanie Fiona jazzed up her black and white jumpsuit with printed bracelets and a bold lip. She shows us how to incorporate color in our everyday style without being to overbearing. Last but not least, Lala showed some legs in a red-orange shirt dress, brown laceup peep toe booties and quilted chanel bag. I love color so I’m going with Lala in this set.

Zoe Saldana’s casual look is always on point. Her style can easily be translated for all women. Mel B. has new hair! She rocked a blue jumpsuit with brown accents. Perfect way to pair neutrals. Rihanna didn’t stray from her new look. She kept it edgy with a pair of leather pants, bold leather jacket, and cat-eye shades. Mel B. gets my vote this round. Her look has a touch of glam.

Finally we get to Christina Milian (again) and Meagan Good. Both ladies were at a party for the launch of the new chicken McBites at McDonalds. With these two we get glam and grit. Meagan Good’s look is gritty Cali while Christina spices things up with her accessories and leopard print heels.

Who rocked it for you this weekend?

So we know that fringe and faux fur are hot trends right now, but we all know that sometimes trends can be taken to the extreme. So here we have Selita Ebanks and Angela Simmons. Both have an interesting take on this season’s hottest look. Who should rock it and who should drop it?
