Wish List: 5 Must Haves From Shoedazzle This Summer

shoedazzle, stiletto society, the style klazit, Melodie Stewart, brand ambassador

Happy payday lady's (and gents)!  When I tell you that I'm sooo ready for this long weekend, I tried to make Wednesday be Friday.  Now that it is Friday what better way to reward yourself than by a little retail therapy.  After all, retail therapy is the best type of therapy.  Especially when it involves

shoes!  Anybody that knows me, know I LOVE SHOES!!! And being a brand ambassador for

Shoedazzle

 doesn't help this slight addiction.  I buy a least one pair of shoes every week.  Like Cinderella, a new pair of shoes can change your life.  I'm a huge fan of

Shoedazzle

, 1 because their selection of  shoes are trendy and stylish and 2 very affordable.  So why not share with you my 5 must have pieces for the summer...

1. I love a good ol' oxford.  It's a great way to dress up your summer work outfits when you're not in the mood for heels -

Lilia

2. Everything seemly comes back around.  Style these 70's inspired platforms with pair of wide legged pants and a off the shoulder top and vuala -

Wylie

3. A distressed denim skirt rather than distressed jeans can definitely be an option for those days when you're just not filling a pair of pants -

Distressed Denim Skirt

4. Long gone are the days when lady's carry purses or pocketbooks.  Now-a-days we carry handbags.  

Francios

is chic and comes in a number of colors.

5. For years I've stayed away from a lot of dresses, but this number here is a game changer.  This

off the shoulder knit dress

is stunning.  If only I could decide on a color.

Fur Vest + Shirt Dress

Melodie Stewart, The Style Klazit, Shirt Dress, Faux Vest, Atlanta style blogger, Atlanta stylist, shoedazzle

How's your first few days of the year going?  I'm on the highest cloud.... Tomorrow my husband and I will be on a flight to Punta Cana, DR for the next few days.  And I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!  The other exciting part to this trip is that I'm 95% packed.  I always wait until the night before and then I'm sleepy the first day of my trip; but not this time.  A sista is ready.

So if you've been following me on Instagram or Facebook, then you'll know that this look is sorta out of my realm.  I've had this faux fur vest for almost a year.  To be honest I've never really been into any type of fur.  I was stepping outside of my norm when I bought this piece.  Here lately I've been kinda revamping my look.  Although I'm not really sure which direction I want to go in, I think this is a start.  What do you think?

Happy New Year!  This is the first post of the year!  Noticed anything different?

I've updated the blog.  What do you think?  I've only been blogging for less than 2 years but I'm proud of the progress that I've made and there's more changes to come.  If you haven't subscribed, you can 

here

.

One thing I'm most proud of is that I've really started to like myself.  Although I'm not perfect, I can look at myself in the mirror and built myself up instead of picking out my flaws.  I didn't make any new year resolutions because I had already started making resolutions in 2015.  My goal for 2016 is to really put my best foot forward and stop being afraid of shoulda, woulda, coulda's.  I plan to be very intentional in

EVERYTHING

I do.  Don't believe me just watch!

So a couple of weeks ago I share a post of my

ShoeDazzle

 holiday wishlist (

here

).  One of the items on the list was this "cozy turtleneck tunic

sweater 

.  I liked both the color and the style of this sweater.  Would you try a monochromatic look?

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.

Sweat Shirt + Sequin Leggings

Atlanta style blogger, Style blogger, wardrobe stylist, Atlanta blogger

Hey guys,

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

Atlanta style blogger, Style blogger, wardrobe stylist, Atlanta blogger

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?

My Holiday Wishlist

We are 7 days away from Christmas and I couldn't be more excited!  Here's why...

I'm off my 9 to 5 the entire week after Christmas.  And I plan to use that time for some serious brand/blog "stuff".  So be on the lookout for a lot of changes come 2016.  Now let's switch back to the topic at hand; my wish list.  In my Mariah Carey voice I'm singing "Baby all I want for Christmas is... handbags, shoes and clothes.  One of my favorite go-to site's

ShoeDazzle

 has all the goods.   

ShoeDazzle Black White Handbag

So if you don't already know, my favorite color combo is black and white.  What took this handbag over the top for me are the tassels.  Such a nice piece to add to almost any look.

ShoeDazzle-Blue-Handbag

What's not to love about this handbag?  The color is popping and the style is amazing! Good for work and play.  This bag is a must have

fringe bootie, bootie, boots, shoedazzle, streetstyle

I'll admit, it took me a minute to get into fringe, now that I have; adding this to my wishlist was a no brainer.  Although this bootie comes in black, I'm swooning over the tan.

Believe it or not, I don't have a grey pump in my shoe collection.  So since I've been nice (maybe a little naughty) all year, I wanted my wishlist watchers to know about this versatile pump. 

Bordeaux, Burgundy, Oxblood Sweater

Although I already have this sweater in burgundy, I added it to my wishlist because I absolutely Love this sweater.  I just wish I had gotten the light grey color as well.  

Boyfriend Cardigan

Here it is again, the black/white combo.  Can't you just imagine all the different ways to style this boyfriend cardigan?  Hint: layer it up... 

Olive Long Trench

Last but def not least, this long trench in olive is #dope.  When I saw it, it spoke to me and said you need me.  I said I sure do!  

Hey guy!  All of these pieces are on the ShoeDazzle site.  Click

Denim Jumper + Brief Case

Atlanta style blogger, style blogger, blogger, Atlanta blogger, street style, denim overalls, mens inspired looks, long socks, oxfords for women

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

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...

Event Recap: Curl Boss - Naturally Pretty

My natural hair journey has been interesting to say the least.  March 2012 was the last time I permed my hair and October 2012 I did the BC!  I was so excited and a little lost because I had no idea what I was going to do with a twa.  Not to mention my husband hated my natural hair; he called it "nappy."  It bothered me, but I knew that after I got the hang of it he would love.  AND I was right!!

During my natural hair journey, I've attended many hair events.  My favorite is the Naturally Pretty hair event hosted by beauty expert and MUA Mia “

MiMi J

” and Dr. Maeling "Mae" aka

Natural Chica

.  Volunteering in 2012 and 2013 and attending this year's event, WOW is all I can say.  The highlight for me was being in the presence of so many beautiful black women.  Secondly were the special guest panelist - Jasmine Lawrence of

Eden BodyWorks

, Janell Stephens of 

Camille Rose Naturals

, Pamela Jenkins of 

Koils by Nature

, Lois Hines of  

Tropic Isle Living

 and Chanel Martin & Candace Mitchell of

Myavana
