It's Monday and why not begin the week with one of this season's hottest trends: metallic footwear. Admit it. I know you've I been shoe shopping or planning on it. Well add this to your list. I curated a little inspiration board for you. Whether your style is a strappy sandal, pump, flat or sneaker, I've got you covered. Check out the many variations of metallic below.
If you haven't read the post behind this outfit, catch up here.
When my friend told me her bridal shower would be a tea and hats were mandatory, I hit the ground running with my search. I had an idea of what I wanted to wear in mind, but finding the headpiece that was "just right" started to become a challenge. I ordered something that I thought would look similar to the one in the picture off of Amazon and received a feather clip in my mailbox. I paid fifteen bucks for a feather clip! Seriously? That was more than what it was worth. So my search continued. After searching high and low, from inexpensive to expensive, I found what I was looking for on my second trip to good ole' Burlington Coat Factory. If you are unfamiliar with the store, it is a discount store that caters to the entire family. I often forget to shop there, but I live in the south and that is one store that I know will keep church like head attire in stock at an affordable price. The fascinator is attached to a headband, which is perfect because I wanted to wear my natural hair out.
It was a three event weekend, and I took a page out of Memsor's (Wendy Williams stylist. I live for the After Show) book and bought the same dress in different colors from Ross.. I didn't end up wearing one of them, but it sure will be put to use before the last day of summer. Get the rest the info below:
Fascinator: Burlington Coat Factory
Necklace: Charming Charlie, old. This one is similar.
Hope you had wonderful weekends and I am wishing you productive starts to your weeks. This is Part 2 of the Weekend of Showers post. If you haven't read part one, catch up here. I ended the weekend with a co-ed baby shower on the lake. Check out the photos below.
The shower was Tiffany and Co themed. The entire room was decked out in black, Tiffany blue, and centerpieces were adorned with pearls.
The lake was the perfect spring backdrop!
The rest of my photos came out blurry. Forgot my good camera at home! Will update when I find clear pictures.
So spring has sprung and many of us can't wait to treat our legs to some sun (whenever it comes out). Get spring ready with an at home body scrub. I live my these. Read this post on how to give your legs that smooth silky feel. You'll be doing this even into summer!
Fox's hit show Empire has been generating some good publicity for some of it's leading stars. First Jussie snagged a record deal, then Grace Gealey who plays Anika, snagged a cover, now Jussie Smollett is still heating up. He is covering the Men's Spring 2015 issue of Urban Lux. That's a good look for Empire!
In addition, the Empire soundtrack hit number one on the Billboard charts! That's huge! Many of today's biggest stars are on that list. They are in great company. Will there be Grammy nods next year? We'll have to wait and see.
