Sunday’s Best: Fringe Benefit

Button up: Burberry // Leather Peplum: Eternity Fashion (Philly) // Skirt: Tory Burch (LOVE this one on Sale) // Shoes: Zara (No longer available)// Bag: Banana Republic (This color on Sale! Use code BRSALE for extra 40% off)// Necklace: Primark // Watch: Michele // Bracelet: mom’s (lol)

Sermon Takeaway: The Power of Prayer! It’s not to be underestimated. If you don’t already do so, I challenge you all to meditate and pray daily. It’s not always appropriate to seek advice from friends and family. Most times, asking your Father is all you need!

Hi Guys! Here’s what I wore to service on Super Bowl Sunday!   This peplum top put a nice spin to my plain, but polished burberry blouse (DISCLAIMER: always read clothing labels before handling. I mistakenly bleached this blouse and now the Nova Cuff is destroyed. Oops!) My Tory skirt is quite old but I still receive compliments every time I wear it! It’s one of my favorite skirts. This spring, you’ll see alot of fringe so don’t be afraid of this trend! The Zara heels are ones that I’ve had my eyes on since they were released. They were pretty affordable ($50) but too popular for me to purchase for that price. One day, as I was shopping the Zara sale, I saw the last pair under a table for $19.99!

– Be blessed and have a productive week!

Hi guys! Anyway, today was actually a lot of fun on 42nd street for Super Bowl Boulevard. I’m not a fan of football or Times Square but the weather was wonderful…well, earlier in the day it was wonderful, lol. My photographer and I missed David Beckham at H&M but we still enjoyed watching others on rides, etc. (Of course I wasn’t getting on the rides. I’m risk adverse!) Anyway, I hope you enjoy the pics!

-Be blessed!

Trend Alert: GINGHAM STYLE

Don’t pair gingham like this! Instead, button the shirt all the way to the top, and tuck it into a bubble skirt! (Image source: www.Forever21.com)

Peter Pilotto for Target: A Guide on How to Shop the Collection

peter-pilotto

Peter Pilotto for Target is absolutely worth it and here’s why:

Peter Pilotto & Christopher De Vos, the designers behind PETER PILOTTO, exemplify for me, a fusion of culture. Pilotto is Australian & Italian & De Vos is Belgian & Peruvian. These two just work perfectly! Pilotto contributes prints &  patterns while De Vos contributes silhouette & style. It takes a bold, confident woman to wear PETER PILOTTO, and wear it well, might I add. My  first time being exposed to the brand was at Selfridges, a high- end department store in London. My eyes were immediately attracted to an array of prints designed into beautiful clothing. I was in looveeeee….then I looked at the price tags….in POUNDS, NOT DOLLARS!!! My new found love soon turned into “Mmm cute.”

And then I saw one of my style icons wearing PETER PILOTTO:

How effortless is Solange? And trust me, it’s not because she’s natural! (Even though it compliments & adds to her style) Anyway, you know I was sold, right? That’s what the excitement is about!!! PETER PILOTTO FOR TARGET lauches Sunday, February 9th!

Here is my Target online- shopping  ritual:

1.. View the PETER PILOTTO FOR TARGET lookbook in advance and decide which pieces you want to purchase. Write it dowwwnn!

2.. Set alarm for 11: 30 PM…. Any earlier may give you anxiety. Any later might make you miss out!

3.. Visit www.target.com & keep the page open! Use the remaining time to use the toilet. We don’t need any bathroom distractions when the clock strikes 12am.

4..  @ 12:00 am- SHOPPPPPPPP

5.. Pay for express shipping if you can’t wait!

6.. Go back to bed with a smile on your face, knowing you just got your P.P. pieces without leaving your room 🙂

If you prefer to shop in-stores, well, GOOD LUCK!

Here are some of the pieces I’m loving:
