Summer came for a day, packed it’s bags, and left. Fortunately, it left its temps behind. If you know Texas’ weather, you know we won’t experience the cooler temps until mid November. I find that to be a good thing, because you can still get away with wearing certain pieces that are deemed for summer only. Since mid-August, I’ve purchased pieces here and there from my Fall musthaves list (I’ll share with you all later on this month). Nonetheless, one of the items on the list is a fringe skirt. During one of my pinning sessions via Pinterest, I spotted inspiration with exactly what I had in mind. Having said that, I’ve joined forces with Tobi to bring you inspiration that you too can recreate for fall/winter, without breaking the bank!
What piece(s) are you coveting for fall/winter 16?
I love a good faux fur. Let’s face it, my disposable income won’t allow me to buy the real deal (one day). Nowadays, you can snag a decent-looking faux fur for under $200. Sure, you might fork over more, but I’ll bet money that the quality is exceptional. Make a note that known retailers like NastyGal, MissGuided, TopShop and Asos have an amazing selection of faux furs.
The one I’m wearing below is from MissGuided. Not so fast, unfortunately, it’s sold out! However, you can click the aforementioned links for an identical version. The coat is amazing and worth the money. The warm inner lining serves its purpose with the below-freezing temperatures we’ve experienced in the last couple weeks. The dress I’m wearing underneath was definitely overshadowed by the furry goodness. Tell me about your faux fur coat experience!
This post is long overdue. I envisioned this MONTHS ago! Nonetheless, this is probably my most favorable post. The joyful expression on my face in these photographs are priceless. Honestly, I think I enjoyed riding the bike more than anything. I hadn’t been on one since I was in grade school. I’ve been dying to check out one of the bikes and familiarize myself with the Fort Worth Medical District.
Furthermore, those of you who are wondering if I purchased the shirt like how it’s pictured in this post — absolutely not! Pinterest is to blame! I spotted a blogger with a man’s buttoned shirt, transformed into a dainty, off-the-shoulder blouse. You can easily take one of your own and button the middle section; depending how much skin you’re comfortable revealing. Secure the bottom half by tying the part of the shirt that’s not buttoned and there you have it!
What are your thoughts on my look? Would you consider wearing a buttoned shirt similar to the one below?
I’m excited to share this post with you all, not only because it’s been awhile, but because I’m literally grooving in an all black 70’s-inspired look. I had a blast shooting this and the location was ideal for what I envisioned. I had the ringlets, gold hoops (haven’t worn a pair since God knows when) and it’s my first post of the summer!
For those of you that don’t know, I fancy myself an old soul; I’m even guilty of using slang terms from the 70’s. (LOL) I’ve often pondered, “Is it possible to be obsessed with an era you didn’t live in?!”
What are your thoughts on my 70’s-inspired look? What era are you obsessed with?
I can hardly believe that it’s been three years since I established my blog. It was no easy feat, but here we are!
Last year, I didn’t celebrate, but this year is about reflection. The journey I’ve embarked on as a Fashion/Style Blogger has been both difficult and rewarding. It’s a humbling experience – I would’ve never imagined having the opportunities afforded to me through hard work and perseverance. My mentor, Kimberly O’Neil has been such an amazing supporter since the day we became acquainted. She is the force that really pushed me to establish my blog.
Originally, TSB was a platform that I used to shed light on like-minded individuals. Features, trend reports, and product highlights were a large part of the blog. Building a rapport with individuals not only from DFW, has been imperative to the livelihood of my brand. Luckily, I’ve been fortunate to do just that! I’ve transitioned into offering my readers a glimpse of who I am, in terms of style.
Lastly, I appreciate all of you who lend your time to read my posts in their entirety, offering a kind word in the comment section below, and being a force behind my determination to progress.
If you asked me what accessory I couldn’t live without, the answer would be sunglasses. Friends of mine give me a hard time, because I have a Tootsies bag in my backseat filled with over a dozen pair. In there, you’ll find everything from cat-eye sunnies to gold tip, tortoise shell aviators.
I recently added a pair to my plethora of sunnies from Nectar Sunglasses, in one of their popular shades, Amethyst. I wore them for the first time while strolling through the Arts District of Downtown Dallas. The sunnies paired well with my black, colorful clouds tee, distressed boyfriend jeans, and chunky platform sandals. They’re extremely lightweight and with me being an occasional klutz, I don’t have to worry about scratching the lens due to the scratch resistance film. The sunnies are quite the conversation piece with the polycarbonate lenses; which I think are über chic and trendy!
