Red










I was inspired to recreate this outfit from noted stylist D. Ni'Cole ! Her page offers a variety of fashion/style ideas that you can re-create with what you have in your closet! The inspired Style Board offered a similar outfit with a hefty  price tag of  $4974--my recreation- $173.

It can be a disappointing reality that the odds of getting a head-to-toe look from a fashion style board or celebrity look isn't always possible---so you gotta be resourceful! The goal is not to copy the outfit piece-by-piece, but rather build an outfit with similar items! 

As any good person knows, it's not what you wear but how you wear it that really makes an outfit!

HAVE FUN IN YOUR CLOSET!

Floppy Hat



  







 Not in a 'ca-million' years would I have thought to wear a floppy hat on MY head---lol! It was a birthday gift from my good friend, Dawn! She usually takes me out of my comfort zone when it comes to certain things--and this was one of them!

I wanted the floppy hat to be a statement piece so I kept the outfit very simple & easy! The hat really pulled the outfit together: chic, confident & classy!

B&W Style





 





Black and white fashion has created its own place in the fashion world! So, with that being said---imagine black and white styles that are more interesting--prints, ruffles, faux leather and so on! (walking off doing the cha-cha slide!) :)

And yes, I'm wearing white after labor day! :)
