#WhatToWear: Fashion Show . . . FAB!

The first look is for the girl who never met a trend she couldn’t rock! Distressed Denim, Skinny Sunglasses, and logo-mania are all the rage this spring! The look I pulled mixes all these trends in a uniquely stylish way. People will have their eyes on you because you have an eye for trendy fashion!

#WhatToWear: Fashion Week Fab

Now, for my classic ladies out there (I’m raising my hand), this look is runway chic and classically fly. The trend? High Waist wide-leg pants and tassel earrings are the rage for spring 2018. Y’all know I’m fan of a good crop-top. My plan is to add more structured crops in my wardrobe this year and maybe rock this to the Elegant Ladies Fashion Show on April 7th. What about you?

#WhatToWear: Fashion Show . . . Classic!

Our last look is for that elegant affair you may be invited to attend. I selected this Jason Wu look as a nod to the Symphony Fashion Show coming up on April 17th. But you can surely wear it to Nashville Fashion Week too. The trend: Daringly Detailed Mules and embroidered accessories. Seriously, if you don’t have a pair of mules you are gonna feel so left out!

So, now that you are inspired to be front row ready, what event will you attend? And what look will you rock? Follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter as I attend the seasons hottest fashion events! Say ‘hi’ when you see me, let take a picture!

What to wear to the Black Panther Premiere

We are less than a week away from the Black Panther premiere. Everyone I know is pretty excited about this amazing cinematic sensation. For comic book fans, it’s a dream come true to see this incredible universe come to life. For black people, it’s even more important. All reviews point to Black Panther being one of the best representations of the African diaspora ever recorded on film. Yeah, Wakanda isn’t a real place, but gosh darn it, we are proud to represent! Of course, I have to give you some outfit inspiration.

At the official Hollywood premiere guests were asked to dress royally as they walked the red carpet. The film’s stars (Lupita N’yongo, Chadwick Bosman, Angela Bassett, and Janelle Monae) wore the finest interpretation of African dress. Taking inspirations from various tribes and regions on the African continent allowed for stars to be as creative and colorful as possible. The carpet shined with black excellence.

For fans attending next week’s nationwide movie showing – dressing up is the name of the game. This isn’t a regular movie date, it’s time to show out! So, to get ya inspired, check the looks below: (click the pic for shopping info)

#WhatToWear: #BlackPanther and Chill

Everyone may think to go straight Kente cloth skirts and shirts for the big day, but I’m all about mixing styles. Add elements of African apparel to you look while supporting black designers, like this Black Panther clutch from Kashmir VIII. This look adds a militant appeal sporty chic!

#WhatToWear: All #BlackPanther Everything

The next look borrows heavily from the actual Black Panther Party. You know I live for an all-black look, so what better way to flaunt it than at a Black Panther movie screening. Plus, this look is super comfy for a 2hr movie event. Cute, militant, and black – seems like a good look to me!

#WhatToWear: #BlackPanther Royalty

This look is for those who love to go all out! Bring the African inspiration to the theater. This menswear inspired African print shirt pares well with jeans and these amazing gold boots. The gold accents are a nod to the African continent and their rich resources!

#WhatToWear: #BlackPanther Bae

The last look is for the guy in your life. I mean really, I expect all the men to show out for the Black Panther screening. This look adds a bit of comic book appeal and African-American inspiration. I mean, it is Black History month! This kente kufi adds that 80’s nostalgia to present day looks. Add a bit of continental gemstones and feel like a king on the carpet.

Let me know, in the comment section, what you’ll be wearing to the show! Who you goint with? Let me know!

What To Wear: Inspired by Halloween Movie Villains!

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:

Freddy’s Dead . . . Sexy!

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.

Raise Hell . . . Look Cute

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.

Checkin in on Chucky

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!

I Want Candy

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!

What to Wear: Let’s talk about WHITE BOOTS

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:

#WhatToWear: Summer Errands

When I saw these platform mules from Strategia, I knew I had to create a look! These mules are giving me UPDATED late 90’s vibes and I am HERE for it. I love a shoe that can give you a bit of height, but still be comfortable. So, I came up with this cute summer look to inspire you to run your errands in style!

I don’t know about you, but I ALWAYS end up running into someone I know (or someone I want to know better) when I’m looking busted and disgusted. So, I’ve been trying to make an effort to look a bit cuter when I’m out & about. I’m going to take my own advice, and find a similar look like the one above. You know I’ll post OOTD’s on my IG and on the blog!

WOULD YOU ROCK IT?
