Happy New Year! It’s the season of ‘New Year, New Me’! On Instagram, I asked my followers if they were thinking about changing their style for the new year. Most answered, “no”, stating that cost and not knowing where to start. I thought I’d share FIVE easy tips to help you update your style!
We are a couple days away from 2018. While I rock this gorgeous black dress from Eleven60, I thought it would be a good time to look forward for 2018. I’m a fan of a resolution. I don’t let haters distract me from making a goal for my life. Some goals, I hit, and some fall by the wayside. BUT, I tried and that’s more to say than the person laughing, while you are trying. Don’t be afraid to set a goal!
The time is here – do you have your New Year’s Eve party plans prepared? I know, the holidays fly by so fast you almost forget to plan for a shindig, nevertheless planning an outfit. So, Fabglance is here to help. Get some inspiration from the looks below. Click the pic for shopping info:
The first look is for my Party-Hopper! If you live in Nashville, there’s a ton of church events, roof top parties, music events, and even fireworks, to help you celebrate the New Year. This look gives you a bit of chic and a bit of comfort. When you reach your final destination, you’ll look super cute and be ready to kick it with your friends!
So, you and your honey going out for a New Year’s Eve date? You gotta give your partner a lil bit of SEXY! This velvet dress and fur jacket are just the look for a night on the town. Plus, there’s tons of new restaurants to try, which are hosting NYE specials too. Add an extra bit of glam, then dance the night away!
Ok ladies, let’s get in formation! You know I’m always ready for an all-black look. This sparkling look and tough but sassy jacket are just the look for the hottest party in town. Keep it flirty and fun, then party until you can’t walk the next morning!
Of course I had to give you a bonus look! This is for my ladies going to see the ball drop. Ladies, it’s all about LAYERS! The forecast is set to freezing, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. Also, can someone get me that Louis Vuitton clutch for an after-Christmas gift? That would be awesome!

I know you are looking at YET another Ugly Sweater Christmas Party invitation; maybe it’s a work function. Oh yeah, National #UglySweaterDay is December 15th (it’s also National Cupcake Day). Anyway, who cares about buying a dumb sweater that you’ll only wear once this year? Why not try a cute, yet sorta ugly, sweater that you can wear through out the cold season. And, you know VELVET is hot this year. Try a pair of velvet booties to bring some fly style to that corny party invite.
You know that party that you kinda want to go to, but not really, but you know that cute guy that’s a friend of a friend, is going to be there? Yeah, this look is for that party! A bit casual, and a bit extra – just like you. Once again, velvet makes an appearance in this ensemble but this time in this cute bomber jacket. Oh yeah, the cool girls bring a bottle of wine, you know to earn her spot at the party.
The next look is for that holiday party that happens right after Christmas. Especially for those of us who fly back to our hometowns and have to stunt on folks real quick. This is also a look you can copy for New Year’s Eve . . . if you gotta stunt on 2017 real quick. The winter trend is over the top, over-the-knee boots! These stunners will help you make a statement.
So, I hope you have a wonderful Holiday Party Season and an amazing Christmas! 2017 has been hell-ish, but we made it in STYLE!

When I took my hiatus from the corporate world, it gave me more time to explore the world of Fabglance. When I started this blog, I wanted to do more than write about fashion. I wanted to teach people how to be more fashionable. It took a little while to get started, but over the years I’ve styled models, local celebs, and working women. I just want women to feel amazing.
This summer, I was hired to style a new client, Jasmine. She turned 40 and wanted to WOW her friends and family. She trusted Fabglance to do the job. But I knew I had to do more than a quick mall run. I bought in Dewayne Richards, aka Dr. Beauty, for hair and makeup. Listen, the man is genius and can SLAY some hair and makeup. Then, I called Patrick Webster, one of my favorite photographers. Together, we gave Jasmine an amazing birthday photo shoot.
Oh yeah, can’t forget using local boutiques to style our FAB FORTY year old. The sequin dress came from Limonada Couture and her business professional look came from Runway Boutique. My goal is to use as many local retailers and entrepreneurs as possible. I am proud to say that this entire job was Nashville based.
Needless to say, the shoot went well. Jasmine was so pleased with her looks and the experience. I was pleased that my client was happy. Styled by Fabglance hit it out the park!

I swear, every year people impress me with their amazing Halloween costumes. Every year I say I’m going to do a banging costume and . . . that never happens. BUT, that doesn’t mean I can give you some FAB outfit inspiration for Halloween. This year, I decided to get inspired by scary movie villains. Plot Twist, I never watch scary movies BUT I love costume design. Below, I picked three looks inspired by Halloween’s scariest villains. Add the makeup and take these looks to the next level! Let’s get started:
Of course I had to start with the Iconic, Freddy Krueger! Growing up, Nightmare on Elm Street was the scariest movie you could watch . . . with the lights on. LOL! Anytime you see that iconic striped shirt, you know what it’s all about. I took Freddy’s iconic stripes to inspire you to step up your Halloween look. It’s sexy and a bit scary at the same time.
The next look is another super scary villain from the 80’s . . . Hellraiser! Dude, as soon as I saw that guy with the pins in his head, I was DONE! I think I made it through about 30 minutes of the movie and I was DONE! However, doesn’t mean I can’t get inspired by Hellraiser‘s patent leather trench look and hardware inspire tortured face.
Last but not least, I had to give a nod to our boy Chucky! Listen, Child’s Play was a movie I could watch because it was HILARIOUSLY scary! I mean, a doll, possessed? Laughable. But he’s iconic. I wanted to go full denim, but went with these black overalls, but kept his iconic stripped shirt, sneakers, and knife. This look is cute . . . but you’ll be a killer! LOL! Also, can I just have these sneakers?! Right!
Ok, so you know I had to do a regular-degular-schmegular look because this is definitely what I’ll be wearing this Wednesday. Hey, the Candy Lady has to look cute too. Can I have this Louis Vuitton fanny pack tho? I swear I’ll put candy in their for the kids!
So, which look inspires you the most? Let me know in the comments section!
I never thought that I’D be saying this, but, we gotta let WHITE BOOTS cook for fall/winter. Man, listen! I always thought white boots looked like majorette boots. But, lately I’ve been seeing the celebs and IG influencers rocking white boots and it’s making me think I can give them some room for the season. So, I had to go to my polyvore page to play around with looks featuring white boots. After I created these looks, I think I’m sold, you should get some white boots this year. Let’s get into it:
People! This is not a drill! The most stylish woman on TV, Tracee Ellis Ross (Joan from Girlfriends and Bow from blackish) is releasing a HOLIDAY FASHION COLLECTION with JCPenney! Get your coins together, because just like Rihanna’s FENTY BEAUTY collection, all the girls will line up for this!
As I type, Tracee is releasing looks from the upcoming, November 12th, drop. So far we’ve seen four looks. The company and Tracee have delcalred these pieces as affordable and SIZE INCLUSIVE! That’s right kids, from a small to a 3xl, you can have a bit of Tracee’s style in your life!
Tracee’s style is well documented. She’s appeared in all types of magazines and continues to slay the red carpet … and when she’s just going to get coffee. She dresses her body well, mixes hi/lo, vintage, and trends, plus she has curves and isn’t afraid to show them. She’s a perfect collaborator for JCPenney, a company that was once America’s store for home and fashion.
Since she’s working with JCPenney, I’m hoping this won’t sell-out immediately. But it is a holiday capsule collection which means its available for a limited time. November 12th is a month away, prices range from $9-$75. I can’t wait to see how everyone styles their Tracee looks! There’s something for everyone’s style: boho, chic, trendy, and classic. I’m going up for that sparkle dress! Yes honey!
As I’ve said before, the best way to embrace fall in the south is to rock summer style in fall colors. That’s why the denim-on-denim trend works so well right now. You can layer for those brisk mornings, while prepping to look casually fine at Happy Hour. Below, I spotlight three outfits to inspire you to rock DENIM on Denim! Believe, it’s all the rage! Let’s get started:
I was really in my feelings about not attending New York Fashion Week this September! But I had to take those lowkey jealous feelings and turn them into something creative. So, I decided to check out some of my favorite NYFW street-style photogs and be inspired by fly fall style. NYFW (or any fashion week) is the perfect time to take a chance with fashion. Push the limit a bit, try something you’ve never tried, and add some FAB to your confidence. Get inspired by the looks below:
