Energy & Valentine’s Day.

Energy. Your energy introduces you before you even speak. Translation: Your only limit is you. The vibes you give off are a reflection (literally) of your self confidence. If you don’t feel confident— it shows in your body language, the way you carry a conversation, and even how your eyes sparkle (or don’t [...]

A Reflection: You Are More Than Beautiful

Yeah so luckily this is not a conversation we’re having face-to-face, because my mouth is numb from topical lidocain and my jaw is a tad swollen. I look ridiculous . . . pretty sure there’s a Snapchat filter out there that could perfectly emphasize this swelling I’m experiencing post-oral surgery. I had surgery just [...]

The Perfect Bodysuit

Bodysuits. They are ideal for layering-- which is a must in Dallas during the fall and winter seasons. And more than anything, who doesn't love the look of a tucked in top that stays tucked in . . . without the fuss? This bodysuit is one of my personal faves, made from the softest [...]

Holy Fashion

There is a time and a place for distressed denim and one fabulous blazer. It's those two magic words-- Girls' Night!   Distressed jeans are a staple in my wardrobe. These jeans are a cropped version, so they're perfect for showing off your favorite heels. Now there's one main thing to keep in mind when [...]

Spring is here!

Spring is here, but that doesn't mean you need to change up your entire wardrobe. Adding a pop of color paired back to nude strappy sandals turns any girls favorite outfit color (black) into a fun spring ensemble.   Go into any girls closet and she has black, black and more black. It's obvious that [...]

Comfy doesn’t mean dowdy!

TGIF Fashion lovers! Yessss, it finally feels like fall, so it's time to get out your UGGS, put on a moo-moo (that adorable tent-like outfit) and never change out of those leggings that have split seams and two holes in them. --> Said no girl ever . . . or maybe you have thought this? [...]

Mauve-a-lous darling!

It's Wednesday evening - AKA, almost Thursday and that means it's almost Friday. Yasssss! Come tomorrow morning, put your lipstick on, turn on some rap music and just handle it. At least that's what this "boss babe" does. My life is far from perfect, please allow me to clarify that. If you have been following [...]

Fashion Stars: STEPPING OUT for a Cause

Confidence comes from [...]

Red, White and BLUE! Yes, there's something so amazing about the Fourth of July weekend, and I can't exactly put my finger on it. Besides the obvious patriotic component, July 4th is truly when friends and family make a valid effort to pause their busy work schedules and spend quality time together. So before I [...]

Love and be loved.

Love and be loved. That's all we could ever ask for, right? And with that love, we find happiness . . . or at least that's our heart's intention. One of the best books I've ever read is The Five Love Languages by Gary D Chapman. I challenge all of you to purchase this book. [...]

Fashion can be bought. Style one must possess.

This is by far one of my favorite quotes to date. If you think about it, fashion is also how the world sees you. How do you want the world to see you? And I challenge you to look past the idea of materialism, because that is not what fashion and style is all about. For [...]
