Hey guys!  I know I haven't been consistently blogging, but man let me tell you, building a brand is hard work.  Especially working a full 9-5 (temporarily.)  Yet! I am determined to succeed.  It may not be easy, but I know it will be worth it.  Just like this skirt in today's post.  It was worth every dime I
spent on it.  All $8 and a few penny's.  Don't judge me, I work hard for my coins, lol!  But seriously, this skirt is so me; bold, colorful, different and fresh with a hint of psychedelic flair.  For some it might be intimidating, but I embrace this garment in all of it's vintage goodness.  This is actually my 3rd time wearing this skirt (see here and here.)  Although this skirt may have a dash of vintage inspiration, I managed to not look like I was a blast from the past.

The easiest and most effective options for wearing vintage without looking dated is to incorporate current pieces into your look to give it a more modern feel. Adding modern accessories or a pair of up to date shoes will do the trick.  I paired this look with a pair of platforms; even though platforms are not new on the fashion scene, this current style is.  Newer clothing items (like my t-shirt) or current hair styles and make-up will bring your look into today's era.

Every now and again, I try to tap into my girly side.  I think this look sums it up.  From my hair down to my shoes.  I'll say it, even if you don't - I look amazing!  It''s hard to believe that there was a time I would never compliment myself.  You look at me now and might ask, why?  Welllll, since you ask....
One word: Comparison!  I was always comparing my "flaws" against other female "perfections."  Either my booty wasn't big enough or my hair wasn't long enough or my smile was as pretty.  But what I failed to realize was that "Comparison Is The Thief Of Joy."  Although I may not have the flattest stomach or the smoothest skin; I've finally reached a point where I'm in love with myself.  Flaws and all.

How to Wear Monochrome No Matter Your Size Or Shape

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.

*Smiling hard* Right now I feel like a kid at a candy shop.  I tell you the truth, I'm super excited!  So much is coming down the pipe for me and I am bubbling over with anticipation and expectancy.  Here's the kicker...

I don't even have a clue as to what it is;  I just have this feeling.  You know the one, where you have butterflies in your stomach and you can't sleep or eat (but not me, I'm still eating).  All you know is that something BIG is coming.  My goal is to be ready when it gets here.

Have you ever considered diy'ing garments in your closet that no longer service it's original purpose?  Take this skirt for instance, it was given to me for the purposes of destroying it.  The style of the skirt pre-diy wasn't flattering at all.  Sooo I grabbed a pair scissors and a spray bottle of bleach and got to work.  Once I got done Edward Scissorhanding this skirt, I washed it (by itself because of the bleach) and dried it to give it the fray and distressed look.  But there's really no right or wrong way to distress denim.  Just be creative.

Got a style question or need a little help getting dressed?  Email me, thestyleklazit@gmail.com or drop a line below.

Bubble Gum Pink Blazer + Gold Caged Heels

Atlanta style blogger, style blogger, Atlanta blogger, Atlanta stylist, Forever21, pink blazer, Midi skirt, Gold heels, caged heels, gold accessories, Style style, black bloggers, black girls rock, black girls killing it, Style influencer, Atlanta stylist, natural hair fashion, Atlanta street fashion

Hey y'all!  Hope your day is off to a productive start.  I plan on making the most of this Thursday.  And this weather in the "A" is wonderful.  Not to hot, just the right amount of breeze.  This is the type of weather for short shorts and skirts.  Can I tell you something?
This is Your time!  You are where you are for a reason!  Now make the  most of it!!   

Would you believe me if I told you that I hated the color pink?  Growing up I was sooo anti pink.  It was such a girly color and I was far from girly.  Give me a pair of baggy jeans and an over-sized shirt and I was good.  Funny thing now, is that I'm starting to like this ol' girly color.   

When it comes to my wardrobe and my personal style preference, I like to mix things up.  I'm not sure if I even have a signature look.  I pretty much wear what I want.  Have you been envisioning yourself in looks that you feel aren't you?  What's keeping you from at least trying it out?  Even as a stylist, I used to have moments of body envy.  I see what looks good on other people and I'm like, I would never look that good in something like that.  But I wouldn't know if I don't try it on?  As a young child my mother use to tell me, "Try it, You might like it."  If you're toying with the idea of a new look; Play On, by friend, play on!        

Drop a line below or email me (thestyleklazit@gmail.com) your style questions or concerns.  I'd love to hear from you.

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.

What up y'all!  Happy Monday!  Whewww, what a week and weekend I've had.  Last week was my son's spring break and he spent it with his godparents.  I thought that this would be a week of relaxation but NOT SO
Dropped him off last Sunday and the rest of the week was a blur.  My plan was to come home and chill with hubs. Instead every evening I was in the streets.  From my bi-weekly chiropractor visits, a JustFab Diamond Elite Mixer, the debut of an old friends SS16 collection and a styling gig for the Spring 16 Urban Prep collection of Lavendar's Jungle.  A sista is Done! 

Do these fatigues look familiar?  We'll they should I've worn them before - here, here and here.  Which look is your fave?

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!!!

Flannel Duster + OTK Boots

Atlanta blogger, style blogger, Atlanta style blogger, black girl killing it, flannel duster, white dress, OTK boots, black boots, street style, blogger style

I'm starting to take more outfit risks.  I use to be hesitate about revealing my body, mainly because of my religious upbringing.  I was taught that a lady should always cover up and that her body is for her husband.  Therefore showing off these mini thick thighs, is a NO-NO!!!!  If my old Pastor could see me now....  But!  I was also a little renegade, so today I'm giving you a little thigh action...
About a year ago, I started being uninspired by my wardrobe.  I really was getting to a point where I couldn't find anything to wear.  I'm sure you've been there before, where you just stand in your closet looking for an outfit to jump out at you.  Whenever, I get stump on what to wear, I start from the bottom - shoes.  Once I decide my shoe mood, I build my look from there.

When I ordered these boots, I had no idea how I was going to style them.  Honestly, the only reason I got them is because my husband liked them.  He says I never dress sexy for him.  And the fact that I'm short and petite; I tend to shy away from anything that I feel would make me look even shorter.  An-t-wayz, the first time I wore this dress (here), I styled it with socks and sandals.  In order to winterize this dress, I added this flannel dress turned duster.  The OTK (over-the-knee) boots were worn to protect my legs from the elements.  Now that the weather is warming up in Hot-lanta, I'm starting to think of other ways to style this dress.  

Do you have any suggestions about the next way I should style this dress?  Drop a line below and let's discuss it.  You never know, I may end up taking your style advise.  Holla!!!

Crew Sweater + Olive Skirt

Atlanta style blogger, style blogger, Atlanta blogger, Olive Skirt, Oversized Clutch

Well guys, we've made it to the last day of the year and so much has happened...
Like you a lot has happened in my sphere this year.  From wedding anniversary to birthday milestones and even death; but I'm very grateful.  I've already started working on my 2016.  I didn't, couldn't wait for the new year to hit.  If you stick around, you'll see a few changes coming.  I have quite a few goals to accomplish before I'm 40.

Anywho, I thrifted this oversized clutch a few months back, I think it's bigger than I need it to be.  It will probably go in my boutique.  BTW if you're in Atlanta or visiting, check out my boutique located at 178 E Crogan St, Lawrenceville, GA 30046 inside the SoJe Emporium. Right across from the Lawrenceville Parking Deck.

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?

Denim Jumper + Brief Case

Please bow your heads in a moment of silence for my briefcase...............

Okay, I thrifted this mini briefcase a while ago.  Since I'm a huge fan of mens inspired looks I was grateful to the thrift gawds for this awesome find.  The reason for the moment of silence is because I ran over it after this photo shoot, tear!  Maybe I luck up on another one.  

Are you ready for the holiday's?  I am!  I'm mostly looking forward to not having to wake up earlier for work.  This will give me a good chance to work on more valuable content for you guys.  2016 is going to be a lot better than this year.  The best is yet to come.

Burgundy Moto + Socks & Sandals

Atlanta stylist, style blogger, Atlanta blogger, Atlanta style blogger

Happy December 1st!  Almost the end of the year and what a year it's been.  One highlight is that I moved my online boutique to a physical location - hoot hoot!!!  

 I always wanted to work for myself and I believe that this is the first step towards being my own boss full-time.  So there's a little story behind this FABULOUS burgundy faux fur moto jacket.  Once upon a time...  lol kidding!  I first saw this jacket at Forever21 while in New York at the ShoeDazzle/JustFab meet up and of course they didn't have my size.  This made my second disappoint of the trip; my first one was when I found out I wouldn't make it to any thrift stores.  I forgot all about the jacket until my girl KishaRose told me she ordered it and said it was a must have.  I went online to order it and wouldn't you know it, it wasn't in my size.  Long story short, I was able to locate it at a local store (even after someone at the store told me they didn't have it).  I Love this jacket...

How to look Stylish, even when you're BROKE!!!


Raise your hand if you've ever been broke?  My hand is raised...  Honestly, I've been broke (temporary out of funds) quite a few times.  But never had I ever wanted to look like I was down and out and neither should you.  Let's talk about how not to look broke even if you are...
*Disclaimer:  I am going to very direct, but it's only for your good...!

#1 -  Beauty and Hygiene

     Bathe EVERYDAY! Put on some deodorant and maybe some perfume (if you can).  Brush your teeth! Keep some type of breath freshener on you at all times.  Keep your nails done, even if you have to do them yourself.  Do your hair, even if it's a ponytail; make sure it's neat.  Although I don't get my face beat to the gawds, I've invested in a few matte lipsticks and gloss just to add a little character to my look.  An effortless and well groomed look is the goal.

#2 - Accessorize

     When you're strapped for cash and your shopping budget is non-existent, accessories are the way to go.  Adding a cute statement necklace into your wardrobe can be worn to complete a day or night time look.  During the cooler months, a scarf can do the trick as well.  When you have the extra cash hit up stores like my fave a good 'ol thrift store, Charlotte Russe, Forever21, Ross, T.J. Maxx  or Marshalls to build your accessory collection.  Check out how I styled this statement necklace from I Heart Jewelz.


#3 - Be Basic

    Sometimes it's okay to be basic....  What do I mean?  A plain look is better than being overly dressed-up.  Even though some people will say otherwise, every occasion doesn't always require you to be red carpet ready.  It's not what you wear, it's how you wear it.  For instance, this look below may not be a slay outfit of the day, but it's simple and causally cute.  Style doesn't have to be expensive.  This outfit, excluding the shoes was less than $10.00 - #thrifted!


#4 - Dress for your shape not your size

     We all come in many shapes and sizes; which means not every brand, no matter how much we like it, is for us.  When you get an opportunity to go shopping, by clothes that are flattering to your shape.  Learn and understand how to accentuate your good areas and camouflage the other areas.  The better your clothes look on you, the better you look.

#5 -  Invest in foundation pieces

     In my opinion there are about 10 basic pieces to keep in your wardrobe (read here). Having the essentials is a game changer.  Now that being said, you don't necessarily need all 10 pieces.  Your version of style my not be my version of style.  So you should determine your wardrobe essentials based upon your own personal style.  When you look good, you feel good!

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.

Red Plaid Skirt w/ Black Peter Pan Collar

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.

Purple Mixed Prints


A few weeks ago I did a periscope on how to successfully mix prints.  
This look was one of the looks that I used in my demonstration.  I was able to pull this look off by matching the purple in the skirt with the purple print in the top.  Both pieces have the same colors just different prints.  I added the gold belt to cinch my waist (the skirt was a tad bit to big) and to bring out the gold in my top and shoes.

A Pop Of Color

For the last few weeks I've been all mixed up.  Mainly because I'm super excited about my ShoeDazzle New York Meet Up in just a few days.  Now that the weather has gotten cooler, I'm not sure what I'm going to wear.  I've heard that the temp's are already in the 40's.  Instead of the cute sandals I was hoping for, I now have to pull out my boots, sweaters, scarfs and maybe a coat... Either way I've already planed to do some Major shopping.  Can't wait to give you guys a recap.
