Red Puffy Coat + All black outfit

       Red has been having a moment this winter but more in accessories like gloves, stockings, bags and shoes than in full outfits. This casual look; a black knit dress and red puffy coat is what I wore to an event I volunteered at a few weeks ago. The weather was cold and blustery with snow flakes flying in the air and had my hair whipping across my face. The event I volunteered at required me to be on my feet for a certain time so, I had to wear my Report Signature flat boots. A very simple look as usual...

Happy New Year! 2024

        Happy, happy new year! my dear friends 😀 I hope the new year is going great for you so far. There is so much stress and heartache going on in the world right now with all the wars and economic situation that, just making it into the new year is enough cause for celebration. It does not matter if we don't have that latest outfit or latest car. It is just enough to be alive and well too.

Sequins and Sparkles in the new year



      Happy new year! I hope this new year finds you in great style with lots of sparkle and joy.  Here is to more sparkles and shine in 2024. If you must know, the sequin and metallics trend is still going to be huge this year. We are not leaving these rich fabrics and accessories in the closet this year; rather we are dressing up every day with gratitude in our hearts for each new day. Happy viewing, happy styling.

The Holiday Outfit staples: A sequin dress and a velvet blazer


        Another title for this blog post would be; "Christmas holiday Outfit essentials." Nothing says I wish you a merry Christmas in an outfit more than a sequin dress, a velvet blazer, metallic heels and a sparkly clutch, all in one if that makes sense. This is my last post on the blog this year. I wish you and yours a very merry, happy, safe and blessed Christmas and a happy new year. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Be blessed always. Merry Christmas again 🎄

Last Minute Gift Ideas

         Gift giving is not all that Christmas is about, but it certainly adds to the joy of the season and increases the Christmas cheer. It's just a few days to Christmas and if you are still in search of last-minute gift ideas under $50, look no further. Some items on the list are small enough to be stocking stuffers. 

It's a little late to get these gifts to your loved ones by Christmas day if you intend to put them in the mail but it's still okay if they get there the day after Christmas or the day after that or the day after know what I mean? It is the thought that counts. There are no rules when it comes to sharing of love and joy in the season of giving. And as always, never forget that Jesus is the reason for the season 🎄

Restyling an old skirt from my closet for Christmas


        Christmas Church service, family Christmas dinner party? The invitation can come last minute and when it does, you should be able to get ready quickly. One thing I would like to commit to in the new year, is to live sustainably. And sustainable living includes restyling pieces from my closet over and over. In this post, I'm wearing this tulle dress which is actually a tulle skirt previously worn here. To restyle it as a dress, I cinched it with a large belt and pulled the upper part of the skirt over the belt to hide the belt and also to form a bodice. I threw a blazer over it and accessorized with pink accessories. This outfit can be worn to church, informal Christmas parties and concerts. Wishing you a very, very merry Christmas! 🎄

Winter Fashion Trend: Metallics

        One of the big trends this season is "Metallics." This hue has somewhat taken over the fashion scene as we can see it in clothing and accessories. Usually, silver and gold metallics is a big trend during the holiday season but this season, we are leaving the gold metallics behind and mostly sticking with the silver metallics as we talk about winter fashion. One piece I really love is the metallic skirt trend as seen here and here and here. 

This midi length pencil skirt is different from the metallic pleated skirt that was a big trend seasons ago but that does not mean you can no longer wear your pleated skirt if you still have it.  This season, all silver metallics is on trend. And as always, if you do not want to wear a full metallic outfit like a dress or pieces like skirt or pant, you can accessorize with accessories like silver metallic purses and shoes. It's all about having fun with fashion. I had to pull out old pictures from my archives in order to comment on this trend 😁

Red is the color of the Season

        Red is the color of the season and it is not just because of the Christmas holiday. This vibrant hue can be seen everywhere in the stores and on the gram and on every fashionista; red outfits and accessories are everywhere. If you have never thought much of styling this color, this is the reason to give this beautiful hue a try. There is a shade of red for every complexion. And if you do not want to put on a full red outfit, red accessories would make any outfit pop. Happy styling...
