She Thrifts Thursday: Cream

Hey dolls,

Welcome to another edition of She Thrifts Thursday. Today I am sharing a thrifted Spiegel jumpsuit. It was brand new with tags still attached.  **Score** I thrifted it a little over a year ago.  It took me forever to wear it because it was a little snug. Ok hell it was a lot snug but for 6 dollars I was NOT leaving it. I've been on my healthy living which includes juicing at least 1 meal a day and I've lost about 8 pounds so I was feeling SNATCHED. LOL I paired the jumpsuit with my oldie but goodie tan and metallic sandals. I think these are one of the oldest pair of shoes in my closet, but they still give life. To achieve the chunkiness of my necklace I paired two together.

Phuck Yo Retail

Hey loves,
I hope you all had a wonderful week so far. Mine has been nothing short of amazing. I spent it with my family in Mexico. Ahhhh, it was a much needed vacation. But like with everything, it just wasn't long enough. I will share pics with you guys later.

Today I am sharing a look where I am wearing one of the t-shirts from my collection. This happens to be one of my favorite shirts from the collection. I paired it with the skirt from the Black Out post Here I had two events in one day so I decided to switch shirts and keep the party going. I am in love with the trend of mixing elegant and casual items to make a chic look. Remember, if you are interested in purchasing one of the shirt head over to

She's on Trend: Mixing Styles

Hey loves,

Today I'm giving you guys some pointers on one of my favorite trends. I'm mixing two unexpected styles: casual and elegant. Pairing the two of them makes for an uber chic look. Every time I leave the house in this trend my husband gives me the side eye. I think he has finally accepted that I am going to wear it anyway, so he keeps the commentary to a minimum. LOL

Pair unexpected items together for something modern and chic. To achieve this look you must think outside the box. Consider pairing a sequin skirt with a denim top and pumps or a flannel shirt with a tulle skirt and a pair of shoeties. If you are confused as to what a shoetie is,its a ankle boot, very similar to a bootie.

She Thrifts T-shirt Collection

Hey lovelies,

Some of you may or may not know that I launched my very own t-shirt line on Monday. YAY.... I'm uber excited!!! The line is a collection of t-shirts designed by me that directly correlate to thrifting. Hence it is the She Thrifts collection. I've been wanting to do this project for quite some time but finally decided to go for it. Raise your hand if you are NO longer being controlled by fear. **Both hands raised** I couldn't be prouder. If you are interested in purchasing one, please head over to

Check out the video and pics of the collection below.

Live and Die For Hip Hop Black Out Gala

Hey dolls,
In my previous post I told you I was going to give you all the tea on the Live and Die for Hip Hop Gala honoring Chris Kelly of Kris Kross. This amazing event took place this past Saturday at the Woodruff Arts center and was hosted by Chris' first cousin LaToya Leigh. Everyone from Tiny, Toya and Reginae Carter, Rasheeda Ed Lover, Bone Crusher, Sheree Whitfield and more were in attendance.

The people came out in droves to support this event and the fashion was certainly not disappointing. The girls came to slay the red carpet.... and they did!! Now we all know people don't like to follow directions, so I was happy to see that 95% of the attendees actually wore all black. Two of my favorite looks of the night had to be the host LaToya in a black and white floral print dress with a tulle bottom and Sheree Whitfield who wore a black jumpsuit with a plunging neckline and nude Christian Louboutin pumps. Regine Carter gets an honorable mention for killing it in a beaded black jumpsuit, black blazer and Versace sneakers.

The night was beautiful as one by one Chris' friends and family took the stage to remember him as a person and an artist. We all know that Kris Kross played a big part in the Hip Hop community so it was great to see their legacy being celebrated.

Black Out

Hey loves,
Happy Monday dolls, I hope that you all had a great weekend. I know that it's been a while since I last blogged and I've missed you guys terribly. No excuses, just life and trying to juggle everything that I have going on at the moment. I swear it's a never ending to-do-list and I am just trying to keep it all together. Anywho enough about all of that.

This past weekend I attended the Black Out Gala in honor of the late Chris Kelly of Kris Kross. It was an amazing event and even more amazing was my outfit. Not to toot my own horn but beep beep, I freakin loved my look. I paired a vintage sequin top with a high low black skirt. Now ya'll know I'm a thrifter but this skirt..................... Hold my mule while I shout. I had to have it. It was over priced but sometimes you have to pay for what you want. I'm not gonna lie, I ripped the price tag off before my hubby could see though. LOL Oh and I have new hair, I debated for a while on cutting it and decided to just go for it. The first few days, I wasn't feeling it but now I live for it.

She Thrifts Thursday: Kimono

Hey loves,
It's She Thrifts Thursday and I am uber excited to share this amazing kimono with you guys.  I found it a few weeks ago while out thrifting and it was love at first sight. I knew immediately how I wanted to style it. My nephew and husband totally hated this outfit but I stayed true to what I wanted this look to be and I like the outcome.

 I swear my photographer has me doing some of the most dangerous things all in the name of a great shot. LOL We were standing on a bridge with oncoming traffic for this photo shoot. I was scared to death but hey, I'm always up for a challenge. Check out pics below of how I styled my thrifted kimono.
