If the shoe fits, buy it!  This wise old saying has brought much joy and happiness to my life.  And that's why I cherish and follow its directions almost to the T.  Ha! Ha! Ha!  No but for-real, when I saw Deon on ShoeDazzle.com I had to have them.  Ain't they bang'n?! Speaking of old sayings, remember a few posts back I mentioned that some good things were about to happen?  Guess what!
It's starting...  So I've teamed up with two other awesomely dope style bloggers whom you may or may not know.  Let me introduce you to Ramona of Tall Tales by Ramona O and Maui of Phat Girl Fresh.  We represent the everyday woman in all her #dopeness.  Together we are 3xDOPE (follow us).  


'Real Style Is Never Right Or Wrong, It's A Matter Of Being Yourself On Purpose.' (tweet this)

Why do we allow society's standards of what looks good to determine how we express ourselves through style?  Just because I'm petite (okay small) doesn't mean that all my clothes have to be tight and/or short.  And just because you may be pleasantly plump doesn't mean you have to dress like Mother Teresa either.  One thing to keep in mind, you should dress for your shape instead of your size. 

Ergo the days where we actually follow "style rules".  Take the style trend monochrome, this trend can be styled by anybody in any number of ways.  Black and white is my all time favorite color combo.  And when mixed together your look can be simple and chic or elaborate and bold.  Today we're bring 3 different variations of this fun trend.

Check us out! Then drop a line in the comments or email me (thestyleklazit@gmail.com) to let me know what you think about our looks or what you'd like to see more of from 3xDOPE.

Hey guys!  It's kinda been a while since I last posted.  Although I've been pretty busy lately, but I still could have found time to check in with you.  Now I'm going to be real transparent and tell you why...
I was going to quit. Yep, just give up!  Why?  Because I wasn't seeing the results that I'd hope to see.  Living in a microwave society where patience is rarely a virtue, I thought that by now I would be this grandiose, extraordinary, bomb stylist/style blogger.  But life has a way of teaching you a valuable lesson.  NOTHING worthwhile comes without a price. (tweet this if you believe this)

After about a month of trying to give up and wallowing in self pity, I decided that enough was enough.  I had to reaffirm myself that I was qualified and that I have what it takes and I will be successful in my craft.  The same goes for you!!!  You are the best at what you do.  

I'd like to shout out my husband, Robert for always having my back even when he has no idea what I'm talking about.  I'd like to thank my sister/friend Kisha Rose for talking some sense back into me.  I'd also like to thank all the other females that I admire for paving the way for me.  Last, I thank you, for stopping by my corner of the universe and listening to my mini soapbox speech.

When you don't watch a lot of TV you miss really dope shows like Bet's "Black Girls Rock".  Living with a sports fanatic (my husband) and a cartoon specialist (my 7 year old) I don't get much TV watching in.  So last night while eating dinner I decided to watch something.  And let me tell you,
This show was absolutely amazing!!!  Granted I'm just watching the 2015 show, but it made me sooo proud to be a black woman.  Seeing a room filled with beautiful, talented and gifted black women was extra inspiring.  It made me fill like my journey thus far will all be worth it after while.  I'm totally a Black Girl Who Rocks!!!

Black Dress + White Sneakers

 black dress, white sneakers, gold accessories, black white sunglasses, forever21, street style, natural hair fashion, Atlanta Stylist, Style blogger, Atlanta blogger, athleisure, Black blogger, black girl magic, street fashion

Well...  I cannot even begin to tell you how this past week and a half has been for me.  I feel like I've been running none stop since mid February.  Aaannddd you wouldn't believe what happened to me two Thursday's ago
I was in a minor car accident.  Yep my first car accident since I've been driving.  My car was damaged and I've been driving around in a rental car, which sucks!  Anywho enough about that....

Now that we're on the cusp of spring, I'm starting to transition my wardrobe from winter to spring.  Incorporating your winter pieces into your spring wardrobe can quickly give your style a fresh feel.  If styled properly.  I originally bought this dress in the fall.  Although the dress has short sleeves, I thought of several ways to style this dress that could easily take me through all 4 seasons.  Here's how I styled it a few months back while in New York.  By adding layers I was able to create a stylish look all while attempting to stay warm.

With the weather starting to warm up, I switched up the look just a tad.  I went with the athleisure street style.  Have you ever thought about wearing sneakers with a dress just to give your look a more playful touch?  You should try it sometime.

Before you get to the pics below, I've got something to tell you, but promise not to tell my thrifting buddies.... Let it be our little secret.  Okay here goes!  This look is completely NOT thrifted!!!!! Not a single item.  Although I've been thrifting since my teens, the past few years I've only shopped at thrift stores.  For whatever reason I refused to shop retail – crazy right?  Now I shop almost anywhere, mainly because I’m a shopaholic.  I even like grocery shopping.

Are you ready for spring?  What spring trends are you most excited about?  Let's talk about it below.

Checkered Sweater + Windowpane Print

Welp, it's the second day of the week of the second month of the year.  I must say things are looking up!  Why you may ask? Weellll, when I looked back over my life these last few years I noticed one thing
Growth!!!!!!  My hair for sure has grown.  Btw, I LOVE my natural hair.  I very excited to see it at its full potential.  Secondly, my blog.  When I first started out blogging, I had no idea what so ever what I was doing, but to look at where I started until now....  I'm very proud of myself.  I can't wait to see what the rest of this year holds for The Style Kläzit.

Now just because you still work a 9-5 or similar doesn't mean you can't be stylish or "trendy".  Maybe I'm fortunate that my job allows me a little wiggle room to #createmyownlook (wink).  Look at how I took a sweater and pair of slacks, which both are appropriate for work and executed a trendy mixed print look.  And just for the heck of it, I added a splash of color.  Now you try it and tag me either on Facebook or Instagram with your new found workwear look.  Good Luck!!

Red Plaid Skirt w/ Black Peter Pan Collar

Atlanta style blogger, Street Style, Atlanta blogger, style blogger, blogger, tartan print skirt, mixed prints, black and white top, striped shoes
When I first saw this skirt...

 It was love at first sight and then I hoped that I could wear it.  Being short, I usually stay away from long skirts, unless they are really cute and then I make them work for my height.  I think I did well for myself.

All Mixed UP!

Hi Stylenista's,

There's a certain classicness (is that a word?) to black and white.  Subconsciously, I tend to lean more towards the black/white combo.  I like the versatility that this color combo has.  One of my favorite style enthusiast's, who I deem the queen of black and white, is Janelle Monae.  She can wear the heck out of an black and white outfit.

Following me you see I'm a huge fan of prints.  Outside of polka dot's, window pane print has become my fave.  As an avid thrifter, my primary goal was to find them for less than $5.00.  Well, that didn't happen.  While out and about with my boo, I walked into the store and there they were; front and center.  I felt like a kid on Christmas.  They were not the $5 that I was hoping for, BUT I got want I wanted.

Outfit Details
Polka-dot button down - Thrifted - < $2.00
Window pane print pants - Old Navy - $35.00
Floral print tie - Thrifted - < $1.50
