As you probably have noticed, various designers have been releasing their new Spring collections. Jibri the fashion forward plus line by Jasmine Elder debuted an AMAZING collection this week that is so stunning and bold, I had to share. Every season I look forward to her collection and she never disappoints. Here are a few of my favorites from her awesome collection:
You can check out the entire collection here. Trust me, you’ll become a fan just as I have!
After I finished my last post I realized that the three trends I wrote about (florals, black & white and pastels) could be worn now with a few modifications (i.e. tights). I picked black & white first because it’s easy to wear and accessible. In the previous post, I mentioned wearing different prints together, so I decided to show this by wearing black & white polka dots and stripes together. Wearing the same color scheme when mixing prints is an easy way to ease into it without feeling overwhelmed. As you can probably tell, polka dots and stripes are a favorite of mine. It’s important that you find a combination of prints that YOU like. Once you find a combo that works for you, try wearing it in different colors!
Also I want to give a shout out to Rocquelle of Consider Me Lovely for the outfit inspiration today!
Have a wonderful day!

Since I’m home due to yet another snow day (grrrr!), I decided to do another Style Inspiration post to stop me from binging on the Investigation Discovery channel (there’s only so many disappearances, murders and deceit one can watch!).
My look today is inspired by the uber chic Tiffany from The Werk Place. I’ve been admiring Tiffany’s unique style ever since I saw her outfit posts on Pose. When it comes to fashion, some people just have “it” and Tiffany is definitely one of those people. So when I saw her gorgeous print on print outfit, I knew I had to put my spin on it.
I haven’t mastered the art of print mixing like Tiffany but the mix of polka dots and stripes were right up my alley.
So check out Tiffany’s blog and show her some love!
Have a great day!

This is part two of my favorite looks from this year. As the year comes to a close, my resolution for the new year is pretty simple…to be kinder to myself and continue to grow as a person. While I’ve had some personal struggles this year, 2013 was great overall. I was fortunate to have several opportunities come my way and I would be remiss not to acknowledge them.
I also want to thank everyone for supporting, commenting and following my blog. Words cannot describe how much your constant support means to me! THANK YOU!!!
Winter has come early for most of us here in States. In my neck of the woods, it has already snowed three times in the past week. Needless to say, I’m not a happy camper. Shoveling is NOT sexy! So to combat the frigid cold, I wanted to wear something super bright today to warm my spirit. While it’s natural to gravitate towards wearing dark colors during the colder months, try adding pops of color to brighten up your Winter outfits. Before you know it, we’ll be welcoming warm Spring days!
How do you like to brighten up your Winter outfits?
Have a wonderful day!

I’m giving my pencil skirts a break and trying out new silhouettes to keep things fresh. Sometimes I get stuck and need to branch out so I decided to dress up my full denim skirt today. I kept things simple with my denim on denim ensemble and added some leopard print for a nice contrast. This outfit shows you can wear denim to work and still look appropriate for the office.
Are you a fan of denim on denim?
Have a wonderful weekend!
Im FREEZING my butt off here! LOL

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday weekend! I spent Thanksgiving with my family in New York and we had such a good time hanging out together. I haven’t been feeling myself lately so going home was the best thing for me. Feeling their love and acceptance definitely lifted my spirits.
Now that the holiday party season is upon us, figuring out what to wear can be somewhat stressful. May I suggest the classic LBD (little black dress) for your party needs? The LBD is a classic wardrobe staple that can be worn to any holiday soiree on your calendar.
Below are a sample of some of my favorite LBDs of the season.
