Cold Day

Today's look was inspired by the cold weather.  It was 23 degrees in St Louis, Mo and the windchill was off the meter.  As I prepared for church today,  I wanted to dress warm by layering my clothes, but still be comfortable.  This is what I came up with; check out my fun, "I Will Not Gossip Sweater." What do you wear to stay warm and comfortable? Please leave comments or feedback.  Thank you.

Anyone in a relationship knows that there is one date that you don't let slip your mind if you don’t want problems; “February 14th, Valentine’s Day.”  Why is this date so important and where did it all originate?

There are many stories told; however they all suggest that a Catholic by the name of Saint Valentine performed secret marriages that were forbidden in the Catholic Church during that time.  Saint Valentine disagreed and went against this principal by secretly marrying young lovers.  He was later exposed and incarcerated for going against Catholic Law.  While in jail the Jailor’s daughter would secretly come visit him.  They fell in love and prior to his death he was known for writing the first Valentine’s letter or love letter to her signed, from “Your Valentine.”  Source: (

February 14th has since become a holiday recognized specifically for lovers all around the world.  As women we love to be acknowledged with cards, chocolates, teddy bears, or other special gifts.  Restaurants, movie theaters, hotels, concerts, and romantic venues usually sell out on this day.  We shop and we go out of our way to look our best for that special someone.

Today, I decided to wear something red that spoke “Love” very loudly, lol.  I decided to wear my gorgeous red “Love” sweatshirt from Carolyn of Dentz Denim.  My only dilemma was how to incorporate a slouchy off-the shoulder sweatshirt, which is mostly worn casual on a day that I was expected to dress-up.  I decided to pair my flaming hot red shirt with my gorgeous Camouflage pencil skirt that I purchased from my good friend’s boutique; Tahle of Houze of Diamondz.

How do you think I did?  How did you spend your Valentine’s Day?  Did you get dressed up or not?  I would love to hear your feedback, please leave a comment.

Today's Look

Still winter season with a nice day but not quite spring yet........... What to wear????

Today was a beautiful winter day, not quite spring; however no need for a jacket.  Today's look was inspired by my gorgeous pearled/blinged-out UGG boots, designed by Ms. Janiece Johnson.  She is from St. Louis, Mo.  She is very talented and can be contacted via her Instagram page @jans_creative_creations, serious inquiries only.  Please let her know that I referred you.

Remember, a colorful scarf or standout necklace can give life to any plain ensemble.  I decided that yellow was just the color to add flavor to this dull gray dress, while allowing my pearl/bling UGGS to be the focal point.  How do you think I did with this look?  What are some accessories you use to bring out a plain or dull color garment? Please leave a comment, thanks.

Layering for Cold Weather

Super Bowl Weekend

I absolutely despise cold weather; being from St. Louis, Mo you would think I would be use to it.  Honestly, you never know what the temperature will bring from one hour to the next.  You may get 3 seasons in one day.  Super Bowl Weekend was no different from any other bi-polar weather day in the Lou, lol.  It was rainy and cold.

I started my Sunday off by going to church; I wanted to be comfortable but warm.  Later, I returned home to change into something a little more comfortable to join friends for a Super Bowl Party.  I love to layer my clothes when I don't feel like wearing a large winter coat.  Layering your clothes with a long sleeve shirt, a cardigan, and a warm scarf is a great way to look cute and fashionable.  

Remember there are "No Rules" in fashion, wear whatever you like; and most important wear whatever makes you feel good.

Check out my weekend looks, leave a comment and let me know what you think.  Thank you.
