Fashionista Friday

Well, technically its Saturday (better late than never). I apologize I was too busy shopping the black friday deals.. It was crazy out there! Midnight my boyfriend & I hit up Toys R Us to get something for his nephew, and someone rammed the corner of a huge box into my back.. that definitely made me want to leave! ahhh... anyways... to my fashionista --

Solange Knowles is not no Beyonce. Trust. She's a daredevil when it comes to fashion. She pushes the envelope and makes me love her even more! She's not your girl next door. With a bald head, Solange revisits her younger teen years where she has shaved her head several times! So NO she's not copying the stripper Amber Rose..
Solange can rock a bald head and long locks. She also gets creative with her nails, love it! Her edginess is incomparable!

Sequin Overload

I walked into the Grove's Forever 21 today, and i was seriously overloaded & border-line grossed out with how much sequined products they carried.. from bangles, bras to blazers...
I know its always during the holidays that sequins tend to come back into fashion, but this is just too much.
Dont get me wrong, i love the bling bling, glitz & glamor... but if everyone is wearing sequins, how are you to stand out?

Googoo for Gaga

I love Lady Gaga even before her crazy experimental fashion she entertained us with these past couple months. Gaga's style is just insane-RADiculous (rad + ridiculous = radiculous)!! She is definitely not trying to get away unnoticed. Her funky flaire for EXTREME is shown here at the West Los Angeles Best Buy signing -- she stuck with the trend of shoulder pads but took it up a couple notches, to say the least! lol

..yup its not a chair behind her. LOL
Other than that her hair, makeup and glasses are on point! git it Gaga!!

5 Makeup Risks for the Holidays

Brighter Blush
During the winter, its much colder & that means paler skin, lol -- which is all the more reason to give your cheeks extra love.
Instyle's favorite - Maybelline's New York Dream Mousse Blush in Soft Plum $7

Nude Lip Gloss
At first thought, you might not think nude lips as impactful is it is. Suprisingly, its chic and easy. Choose shades of light pink and "barely there nude"
Instyle's favorite - Napoleon Perdis Luminous Lip Veil

Glittery Nail Polish
In the midst of all the Holiday sequins galore, why not jazz up your "smallest palette" -- your nails! Full on sparkle/glitter nail polish, don't be scared. Go all out!
Instyle's favorite: Rococo Glitter Nail Polish in Vayder

False Lashes
"Falsies" are really fun and bring focus to your eyes. For beginners, I can tell you that it is intimidating and weird, but TRUST ME.. its awesome :)
I'm a fan of lashes whenever and wherever.

Instyle's favorite - Lash Addiction Lashes in Sex Kitten

Bright Colored Shadows
Bold shadows and a subtle liner is always a winner in my books. Skip the thick liner and try a fun color. Make sure not the pack it on and keep it balance (don't try to look like Mimi from the Drew Carey Show LOL).

Instyle's Favorite - Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips

Glove Love

A fun trend to try this fall/winter, gloves! These fun accessories not only keep those cold hands warm, but add an awesome touch of style to your wardrobe. Wear them literally with anything! They'll bring an edge to your cute feminine look as well as function. InStyle mag. is obsessed with the brown leather and lace gloves by 3.1 Phillip Lim, while Vogue opts for the Covered Arm look. If you're not up to spending too much on gloves, try for a small variety or The second group of gloves gives you a hint of what is featured on, there you will find tons of different styles to match any of your moods.

Remember, its best to keep in mind to not layer too much on the arms, keep your shirt sleeves light when wearing gloves. Just copped some of my own from Forever 21 down below, next purchase, lovely long ones, just can't decide where to go?

Tuesday Looks

Nikki is wearing a vintage Levi's demin western style button-up with a plain white boyfriend tee. She finishes it off with awesome velvet leggings from Forever 21 and cobalt blue suede pumps.
Nikki is working her leggings and cobalt blue as written in my previous posts :)

I, on the other hand, am going for the all black look with a cotton black shirt-dress from Express, black suede pumps, and opaque stockings. I polish off the all black with a eye-catching Forever 21 belt.
I feel a little naked because I couldn't find a pair of my gold earrings lol

Trendy Tuesday - Cobalt Blues & Royal Fuchsias

Blues and Purples are my favorite colors. Both colors are easy to wear and can make your outfit. I'm usually an all black person with a touch of brightness. These colors brighten up the day, whether it be touch on your nails or smokin' heels.

Natalie Portman at the premiere of "Brothers" throws on a stunning Jason Wu cobalt blue dress and daringly mixed the brights of yellow, teal AND purple. I kind of loves it. It's definitely dare devil city playing with all those colors but Natalie pulls it off! The vibrant colors are impeccable!

Below see my collection of blues and fuchsia/magentas -- affordable & some a littttttttle out of my league. lol

Of course you shouldn't wear all theses at the same time :P

Killer Heels without the Killer Prices

Want to own KILLER heels but can't afford the prices of Louboutin, YSL,Giuseppe..etc?
Not to worry... Forever 21 is here to save the day with "inspired" heels and great prices!

Left to Right -- Forever 21's "Criss Cross Suedette Boots" for $32.80 compared to Christian Louboutin's "Nitoinimoi Bandage Ankle Boots" $1,195. 

These are pretty fly! Kind of YSL inspired, quite possibly... Forever 21's Sabiya Lace Boot $32.80.

Forever 21's Christina Perforated Bootie for $25.80 compared to (and with the noticeable difference of a peeptoe) Loeffler Randall's Perforated Bootie for $595.


Leggings are the most comfortable, cute and versatile pieces of clothing.
You can keep 'em simple or bust out with a crazy print and/or designs (whether it be adding a couple zippers and studs or a faux demin).
I personally like shopping at Express and American Apparel for more "quality" leggings, however Forever 21 has great prices and designs.

Jersey Slit Legging $32 & High Wasted "Afrika" Print $34 (avail in more colors)
