Ootd: Rush Hour

Waking up late can have its advantages and disadvantages. 
- Rushing
- Not being able to eat
- All in all, WAKING UP LATE!

But the advantages, of course, can overshadow the bad. Here I bring you my advantage


This is my advantage! I'm so in love with this outfit, so in love with everything I had on. For me to only have, literally, a second to think up an outfit , this is maybe be inducted into my greatness hall of fame!

Last week, I somewhat went on a shopping rampage! (haul post coming? hmmmm) Anyways, I bought all of these items (minus the boots) and I couldn't be happier. I was excited to ear everything. Don't you just love that feeling?

F21+ leggings - $11.80 // Express tee $14.94 (limited time, after it's reg $24.90)
Cardigan: clearance from F21+ , boots: Reflection

Let me know what you think! Comment!

Solange Knowles Pre Grammy Ensemble: Style or Not

Now I'm all down for animal prints but Solange took this to a whole new level (for me).

We all know Solange has a sick fashion game. I personally want to invade her closet and have tea with her and Blue Ivy but this made me ponder a little.

Here's why: 

I will slap, run, punch, whatever to avoid all contact with them. This outfit did make me cringe a bit BUT you can not deny when something looks good on someone.

That being said, I say STYLE (with exclusions). It may not be everyone's cup of tea (for themselves to wear; me included), I can definitely say Solange rocked them roaches. She looks great!

What do you think? Comment!

Peace & Style. xo

OOTD-OOTN : Hooded Denim jacket

Now I feel like everyone has seen this jacket somewhere, some how.
Tell me you haven't... *waiting*

Well anyways I've seen this jacket many of times and of course I was amazed by it. Loved it! But I've seen so many different prices for it, from $50 - $80, it truly broke my heart. However, every time I would be ready to by ( for $50, of course), they would be gone or not in my size! WHACK!!!

Until yesterday...  

Yesssssss.... I found it! IN A STORE!! MY JOB!!
I was definitely excited to see it but I was very skeptical about it because I can barely fit anything (with sleeves) at my job because I have big arms. But courage came over, said suck it up, and I tried it on. It fit perfectly, so you know I couldn't pass it up.

Here's a better look: 
Acid Wash Anorak Jacket, DENIM, large
It is meant to look big and slouchy, which I love. I have a Large and it's still room in it. The link will be below

Now it was $49.95...Being that I worked there I received a discount. I think even if I didn't I would still buy it! Clearly, I wasn't going to find it cheaper so just go for it. It's versatile, it's fun! 

Now back to my outfit:

My friend asked me to go with her BUT (here's the deadly part) I couldn't change my clothes. I HAD TO WEAR MY WORK CLOTHES. *faint* ... okay I'm back... whew! Hence the 'OOTD-OOTN' in the title. Well I just went with the flow. Now before I bout the jacket I wore a denim vest... still went with the outfit. It was cold and a little foggy so I switched up. 

My dress is from Forever 21 (who are having an AMAZING sale right now, online and in store) but it was on clearance. I just looked at the site and the dress is gone. Of course you can use any maxi dress and even add some print to it! 

Paired with a chunky necklace, low Chuck Taylors, and red lips, I was ready for work....and the party (I guess) LOL!

Of course, one drink and a compliment later, I was too cool for school and was completely okay with what I was working .

Morals of the Post: Just go for it and Work with what you got

Jacket & necklace: LoveCulture
Dress: Forever 21 (similar)

You better Vogue!

Work it honey! Work it!

So I'm doing my usual scroll through Instagram (LaDeeDaDee) and I catch myself looking at shoes... These shoes to be exact!

Okay, did you gasp for greatness too? Good! We're on the same page.

Aren't these gorgeous!! The wonderful LolaShoetique  posted these babies and I couldn't resist but post them. They're so fab and chic. I think what really caught my eyes was the Vogue covers.. How clever! The heel is 6 inches, platform is 2 inches (So you're really walking on 4, psssh light work). With all the colors these can go with anything! It can add lots of spice and pop to any ensemble and make it look like a million bucks.

The direct link to the shoes is here. There are other amazing colors like floral, tan, and green. Check it out! (I also put a link to the home page in the previous paragraph).

Til next post
Peace and Style

New Earrings

I'm so in love right now!!

So we all know I'm a big earring fanatic! (If I'm not wearing big earrings something is wrong! You have my full permission to ask what's wrong.) Anyways, as you can see I have a new pair to add to collection.

Where are they from? They're from me! Yes I did these earrings myself. Pretty cool huh? I felt too accomplished when I completed them. Still have a few things to mess around with then I can let you in on it! This was simply an experiment gone right!

What do you think? Let me know!

New Year, Focus on you!

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” 
– Oprah Winfrey

I hope you all brought in perfectly, had a great time, and looked Ahhhhhhhmazing!
We're already three days into 2014 and what a great feeling!! We all have these goals and let's stick with them. Let's all make this productive and challenge ourselves. Just like 2013 was over in a blink of an eye, 2014 will be the exact same. However, take note of 2013. "What did I do right", "What did I do right", "What do I want to do" are a few questions to ask yourself. Write them down or make a concept board. Create and Inspire (yourself, first).
I definitely wand to thank you ALL for the wonderful support and sticking with me through this journey. I'm growing more and coming with more ideas, thank you so much!

I wish you all greatness this year!

xo, Bee
