Hey guys,

2016 is just a blink away!  Are you planning on making any changes in your wardrobe?  I am...

Right around the end of summer, I noticed a slight change in my style.  Being heavily influenced by vintage fashion, I'm liking the direction my style is moving in.  I'm interested in what 2016 styles will bring.  I bought these sequin pants for an all black birthday party and thought how dope it would be to dress them down. I really wanted to diy the sweatshirt, but ran out of time to do so - maybe next time.

7 Ways To Slay Your New Year's Eve


Yahoo!!! Christmas is finally here and I'm soo excited.  Why you ask?  Because I got to chill all day in my t-shirt and sweats.  My husband and I were invited over to a friends house for games and such, but I couldn't bring myself to part from my T and sweats....

Now that we've made it through the 12 days of Christmas, we have one more holiday countdown - New Year's.  We are 7 days away from 2016.  I've never really been to concerned about what to wear on NYE, but this year for some reason I wanted to do something a little different.  So I headed over to search the archives of some of my favorite style bloggers for some inspiration.  Hopefully these looks will inspire you as well.  Take a look...

Just in case you're not in the mood to wear a LBD, a jumpsuit is always a good choice.  Chloe (left, The Chloe Brand) added a splash of color to her look with this red fringe necklace.  While Cari Rene (right, Layllah) looks absolutely stunning in this classy, chic one-piece.  Both looks would def work for an after 5 New Years Eve celebration.    


Chastity (Garner Style) one of my favorite style bloggers looks amazing in this body con dress.  There isn't anything that I've seen her in that I didn't like.  Now you may be thinking that the dress isn't cold weather friendly, but step back a bit and image this dress styled with a sequin blazer and strapy heeled sandal or as pictured because let's face it...  Chastity is wearing this dress!


I'm not a huge fan of lace, but this lace shirt dress worn by Thida ((That Girl Gick)) has me rethinking my stance on wearing lace. This look says I'm just getting off work on NYE and I don't have time to go home and change.  The white coat, red clutch and statement necklace took this look from blaaa to bomb.  Party on!!!!


Being a thrifter myself I can most assuredly appreciate a thrifter with style.  Patrice (Looking Fly On A Dime) not only is able to create a stylish look, she was able to do so all while on a budget.  This head-to-toe thrifted ensemble is #dope.  A moto jacket, a sequin embellished top over a skater skirt with tight and pumps; you can't go wrong.  


2015 was rough and you've made up your mind that 2016 you're going to grab by the horns and make it your &*)^%....  You want to start the New Year off right and what better way then to step out in a "hello world" statement making look.  I lloovvveee this look on Juliette (Romeo's Fashion Fix).  It makes me want to throw caution to the wind and do it.....!  


So what you're not an out of the box person.  That doesn't mean you still can look fabulous.  The timeless little black dress is a must have in your closet.  How breathtaking is this LBD styled by Busola (The Fashion Stir Fry)?  Sometimes it's the little details that make a big deal.  *S/N: Busola has the cutest dimple.

These looks are just a little inspiration to help you in your quest to look incredible at your New Year's Eve celebration.

Black Moto + Tartan Print Skirt

Moto jacket, plaid skirt, Atlanta blogger, style blogger

Hey ya'll, hey!  Guess what I'm sitting here doing...
Watching football with my husband.  Never would have thought in a million years that I'd become a football fan.  Welp, Christmas is this Friday and in the spirit of the holiday I wanted to wear something "Christmassy." I think this tartan print skirt (worn here) is a perfect option for the season.  How would you have styled this skirt?

New York State Of Mind!

Hello, my name is Melodie and I'm a shoe addict.  
Being a ShoeDazzle and JustFab brand ambassador doesn't help any.  Anywho!  When they announced that they were having a meet-up in New York, I called my girl Kisha Rose and we immediately started planning for the trip.  Although the trip was only for 2 days, I packed as if I was staying for a week.  This was my second trip to NYC and I wish I could have stayed a little longer.  I'm definitely going to extend my stay the next time around.

Hi Stylenista's,

It's HUMP Day! Happy Wednesday!!

I would like to start by saying 'Thank You' to the thriftgods for favoring me with these army fatigue pants (which have been on my thrift wishlist for some time now.)  Whenever I'm thrifting, I very seldom visit the men's section.  However, the thriftgods guided me (subconsciously) to the men's pants section and there it hung, waiting for me.  I almost knocked over another shopper trying to get to them.  Immediately I started envisioning the different ways I would style them.  If I didn't purchase anything else, these were coming home with me.  If I do say so myself, I retro chic slayed (I just made that up) in this look; from head to toe.  Everything is thrifted except for the shoes and accessories.
