*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.

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 -

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!!!

Yellow Blazer + Black Skirt

Happy Friday eve, although today feels more like Friday to me.  Some time last year I became somewhat bored with my wardrobe.  So I decided to do something about it.

Although the feme-chic look isn't really my go-to style; I thought it might be fun to try it out anyway.  What I like most about this look is the blazer and the socks w/ heels.  I'm kinda a sucker for the socks and heels combo.  Want to hear something funny, but not really?  For my sis-n-law's recent nuptials, my husband says to me, "Make sure you wear something nice."  Huh???  What do you mean by that, I asked?  After a few choice words, I think we're good.  Anywho, this is what I work to the wedding.  What's your opinion on my look?  Drop a line below and let me know.

Have you been wondering where I've been?  Well life happened!  And I allowed some things to get me down and out.  Honestly guys, I was really on the verge of quitting and just settling for a mediocre existance.  I was there, you've been there, we've all been there; But

I refused to give up.  So many times in my past I allowed my circumstances to dictate my outcome.  NOT ANYMORE!!!!  I had to remind myself that nothing worth having in life comes easy.  Not sure who came up with the phrase - "I'm too creative for a 9-5", but that's soo true for me.  How dare I deny you really dope outfit posts each week (lol, wink)?  I saw a post on IG just this morning which said, "There are people watching me, copying me and looking up to me, but they will never tell me."  I think about the person who had a purpose just for me.  If they had given up, I may not be who or where I am today.  One of my favorite bloggers,

Mattieologie

said it best - Push through.  You're closer than you think.  So here I am pushing past the obstacles that were meant to block me.

So let's get into the today's blog #ootd.  Giving you a bit of late 80's early 90's street vintage.

3 Incredible Easy Ways To Mix Prints Like A Pro

mixed prints, Atlanta blogger, style blogger, blogger, black blogger, street style, spring fashion, Atlanta style blogger

In just a few days, my favorite season officially begins – SPRING!!!!!!  What I love most about spring are the longer days, warmer weather aanndd the assortment of colors.  Although I wear bright colors throughout the year, this time of year is when I really throw caution to the wind and indulge in colors and prints.  But if you follow me on IG (follow here), then you already knew that mixing prints is sorta my thang.  So if you've ever thought about trying out this trend, but didn’t have a clue where to start?  Well Miss Lady, I got you...

So you're ready to get your feet wet with mixing prints?!  For a beginner, your first step is to start off with mixing colors not prints.  I would suggest starting off with black and white.  You can't really go wrong with this color combo.  A little polka dot top hear with maybe a stripe bottom or a floral bottom in combination with a plaid or even tribal print top.  Any two of the same shade of color would do, just make sure that the colors are balanced.

I Am Necole

Are you ready for the next step?  Good!  Now let's wade a little further out into the deep.  Next you can start playing with different prints that share the same color or shade.  When you keep the colors in the same family, this helps to make sure that the prints aren't competing against each other.  So even if the prints are different the colors with bring the look together.    

The Style Kläzit

Alright, you still with me?  Okay!  Now you're ready for the big leagues.  Mixing bold patterns with low contrast patterns can seem tricky; but completely doable.  Just make sure to scale each piece accordingly.  So if your top is colorful, your bottom can contain at least two of the colors in the top.  Or your look can contain two of the same patterns/prints but in different colors.  Mixing two or three different prints/patterns is completely fine, just as long as the colors compliment each other.  The objective is to create a bold statement without being overly busy.

BitterSweet Colours

bittersweet colours, Plaid trend, COLORS, fall colors, esprit, Joe fresh, vintage, Shoemint, street style, prints,clashing plaids

Here's a bonus tip for you...  If you're not ready to plunge into mixing prints with you clothes, start small.  Mix matching your accessories, such a handbag, a belt, a scarf or a hat.  Even your shoes can be used to create a print mix look.  Sounds like fun.  Are you ready to start mixing and matching today?

Black Distressed Jeans + Plaid Blanket Scarf

Heyyy guys!  Can you tell that I'm living for my hair?  C-O-M-E Thru natural hair'd beauty... #blackgirlmagic

Now that I've gotten that out.  Who's ready for V-day?  I'm sure a lot of women are running to the stores trying to find something sexy and red to wear.  Not I.  Red and sexy is sooo typical (in my opinion).  I'd rather go for something a little unpredictable.  Maybe something like today's look.  I'm sure my husband wouldn't go for it, because he's a little more traditional than I am.  Anywho, let me challenge you to do something a little different.  Try another color besides red or even pink.  Instead of a skirt or dress, try shorts or pants.  Get out that box of same-o-same-o.  Mix it up a little and have fun! Until Next time!!!

Burgundy Moto + Army Fatigue

I feel like we just got into January and now we're almost at the end.  Maybe it's due to the fact that I celebrated Christmas, New Years and my wedding anniversary all within a 20 day span.  A girl could get use to this...

 Now that we're into the new month, I have already hit the ground running.  My husband has already given me the green light regarding my exit plan from my 9 to 5.  Even before the new year hit, I was already busy planning the ways that I can create multiple streams of income.  Although I know what I wanted to do, I really didn't know how to execute it.  But that all changed when I got wind of the live streaming app - Pericsope

(download the app and follow me @thestyleklazit).  

I started following a number of #ladybosses who weren't afraid to share the knowledge that got them to where they are now.  Just wait guys, I've got some good things coming this year that will help you in all your styling needs.

Hello, my name is Melodie and I'm a shoe addict.  

Being a

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.

Playful in Pink

Hi there Stylenista's

I hope you're having a great week.  Yesterday was my birthday and the only thing I really wanted was to just chill and go see Avengers: age of Ultron.   By the way, it was Ggggrrrreeeeaaaatttttt!!!!

I got this skirt earlier this year while on the Thrifting Atlanta bus tour and I couldn't wait til the weather warmed up to wear it.  The colors in this skirt are bountiful, while the number of styling options are plenty.  I love thrifting multi-functional pieces.  To be honest with you, it really doesn't take a lot for me to pull together a look.  If something catches my attention, I already know that I can work with it.  Just to give you a little history behind this shirt... On a bus tour no doubt, an attendee found the shirt, tried it on and it didn't fit, it went through 3 other ladies before choosing me to don it.  I Love THRIFTING!!!


Outfit Details
Pink pussybow blouse (F21) - Park Ave Thrift Outlet Woodstock - $1.75
Vintage pleated skirt - Ecologie Consignment and Vintage - $10.00
Shoes - Shoedazzle
Belt - Thrifted - < $1.00







FEATURE Friday: Jamal Jackson / Style Society Guy

Feature Friday with Jamal Jackson of Style Society Guy.

As a wife and a mother of a young son, I often look for style inspiration from male "stylenisthim's."  I somehow came across this stylish young gentlemen's page and was so amazed.  Check out a few of his look and read our conversation to see why...

1.

How were you introduced to fashion/style?

Growing up my dad taught me the importance of grooming, cleanliness and always looking presentable.  So I think my love for fashion was kind of a spin off from that.   It wasn’t until I got older that I starting taking an interest in fashion and style. 

* Who is your favorite style icon?

My style is a combination of neat and clean and eclectic and colorful.  For my neat and clean side,

David Beckham

.  He is the example of what my father taught me about how a man should look.  For my eclectic side, I would have to say

Pharrell Williams

or

Mark Ronson

.     

* What’s your favorite season as far a fashion goes?

Spring!  The weather is just right for mixing and matching pieces from both spring and fall.  It’s a time where I can still wear my long camel coat, so rather than wearing a turtleneck, I can pair it with a Henley or I can wear my lighter weight leather jacket in lieu of my heavier one.  But most importantly, I was born in the spring!!!

* What made you start your blog?

I always wanted to be in an editorial position; however, I noticed that it was difficult to even obtain those types of positions.  Even if I had gotten in the door I would have been an assist doing basic duties.  Not to say that I was above being an assist, but I knew I needed a more creative outlet.  So I utilized the tools that I had in order to get my point across about menswear.  So it started from posting my #ootd on

Instagram

to what you see today.

* Do you feel that male bloggers get recognized the same as female bloggers?

Actually, yes.  Sometimes menswear gets more recognition than womens wear.  It even seems to be that the menswear community is more supportive of each other than in the womens wear community.  Men are more carefree and less competitive then women.  The science between men and women is unexplainable.

* What’s your signature look?

Definitely layering.  And in a close second is color blocking.  I really enjoy mixing the two trends.

* Where do you mostly shop?  How often do you shop?

I shop almost everywhere, but most of my clothes are from

Club Monaco

.  I am also heavy into thrift shopping.  I still have a lot of clothes from college and I receive clothes from clothing brands that I work with.  When I do shop, it’s mostly a once a month trip.  

* If I looked in your closet, how would I find it arranged?

Ah!  Right now, it’s pretty embarrassing.  I’m in the process of rearranging my closet.  But, you find that I have tanks, shirts, t-shirts and long sleeves.  Then suits, jackets and coats.  My closet is very colorful.

* What’s the one wardrobe essential you can’t live without?

My leather jacket.  It’s like my fail safe piece. 

* What’s the best advice you've ever received?

“Just be a sponge” Absorb as much as you can. Don’t listen to respond, listen to understand.  

* What’s your favorite fashion magazine?

I don’t really have one.  When it comes to magazines, I read a lot of architectural magazines.  So my favorite magazine would be

Architectural Digest

.   

* What is one thing people would be surprised to hear about you?

I would say that people might be surprised that I’m an only child, but probably not! Ha! Ha!  I think most people would be surprised that I really like to be alone.  If you look at my IG feed or my blog, you might disagree, but I really appreciate my alone time.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my family and friends, but something I just really like that time to myself.
