This is my niece. She’s wearing a pink dress from jc penney, and she accessorized with a pink and rose pearl necklace and bracelet. Isn’t she the cutest?

The Queen was at the All-Stargame in Houston after an amazing Bey weekend. Beyonce sat down with Oprah for a Next Chapter Interview then the premiere of her self-directed documentary Life is But a DreamI guess she was able to share the spotlight with the National Basketball Association right?

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!

Hey my loves!

Next week Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, and I have some amazing fashion and beauty deals for you all this year. This is the beginning of the holiday shopping season. While some people shop all year round for the holidays, majority of the people, including myself, wait until after Thanksgiving to really get things going.

Here are a few tips before you head out to your favorite shops for your favorite deals.

  1. Make a list! You have to be prepared. This is not the time to go and browse the stores casually. You need to have a plan. You will no exactly what stores to go to and what items you will purchase from the stores. So grab those newspaper circulars or print them out to create your list. You can also prioritize and figure out which stores you will attend first  and what items you will try to grab as well.
  2.  Shop with a friend. Usually I like to shop alone but shopping with a friend during this time is a necessity. You guys can split up and divide and conquer! Ok that may be a little extreme, but you can each pick up the items you need in half of the time. Also you can wait on line in shifts.
  3. Wear comfortable clothing. I would suggest something that you can maneuver in easily, so layers are perfect. Comfortable jeans and knit leggings are essentials. I would go with leggings and some flat riding boots with zippers that will be easy to take off if I need to. Also wear a cross body bag to avoid holding your purse in your hand or on your arm. Lastly oversized cardigans, scarves and anorak jackets are great too. You can tie the jacket around your waist if you get a little warm and the cardigan is great for an additional layer of warmth.
  4. Be assertive, yet friendly. You want to be pleasant to the workers because this is an extremely stressful time and you want them to be as helpful as possible. You have to be assertive when it comes to the other customers. Do not get in to a fight, but if there is a deal that is a must have go for it!
  5. Set reasonable expectations for yourself. You may have 15 items on your list that you want to purchase, but you not be able to get those items, so be realistic on what you can actually accomplish, and also remember, what you do not get on Black Friday there is always Cyber Monday.
So, whether you are shopping on line, or standing in line at your favorite store to get the best deals we have something for you so check it out!

Happy Shopping!

Leather is a huge trend for this fall and HGB has got you covered on some of the hottest and affordable pieces to incorporate in your wardrobe! Leather is definitely luxurious. There is nothing like wearing a rich leather jacket. It changes the dynamic of the entire look. So if you want to incorporate leather in to your wardrobe and not just for outerwear, rock a leather skirt. When I say leather,  faux leather is included. Some people aren’t afforded the luxury of being able to purchase a leather skirt for $150 so faux leather will do. My favorite type of leather skirt is the pleated skater skirt. It is edgy, yet ladylike. You can pair it with a simple white blouse and a pair of black pumps and be ready for work. Now for the evening, a sexy camisole and blazer will be perfect for a date with the beau. I also love the classic leather pencil skirt. I just purchased a faux leather pencil skirt from jc penney for $25 and it will be making it’s debut to the world sometime next week lol. If you do not want to go for the entire leather look for fear of looking like a dominatrix, try going for a skirt with leather panels or a leather waist band. Below are some options for leather and faux leather skirts that you can add to your wardrobe this fall.
