Simplicity

Hello Closet Shopper,
Hope your having a great week.  Here is a black jumper that I wore to a surprise birthday dinner.  This jumper I got on sale last summer from bcbgeneration for $20 so I had to get especially since I didn't have a long black jumpsuit.  So it sat in the closet since then never worn and I kind of forgot about it, so when I was shopping my closet for an outfit for this dinner I was like "oh hello" once I saw it  (yeah I say that to my items of clothing once I haven't seen or I forgot about them) lol.  I thought it would be perfect with my white button up, black ankle booties, and pops of red on the lips and my bag! Simple but yet so stylish.  Sometimes being simple with your fit is the best, so don't try and overthink your outfit because maybe what you have on is just enough!

This outfit can go for date night or even dress it down for a more casual look with sneakers and a denim jacket.  Trust this won't be the last you see of this jumpsuit.  Hope you enjoy this post!

Denim on denim on denim

Hello Closet Shoppers,

I know it has been awhile but I am back.  Just to give you a quick run down on what I have been up too is if you follow me on IG you all know that I took the big jump in life and quit my 9-5 and moved to California to live my dream of becoming a stylist. This week will mark my third week here I am adjusting very well.  I visit Cali every year and I have always wanted to move so I planned this move a year ago and everything so far has executed great.  Now it is time to hustle, hustle, hustle!!  I have sacrificed a lot to move here and to live this dream but I am happy with the decision I made.  I worked in the federal government for 16 years and although it was great to me finically and has made me in to the great worker i am today, that 9-5 hustle wasn't for me.  I was very unhappy at my job and I just didn't want to be unhappy anymore!  So I made that change in life to be happy!  When i lost my father it put a lot into perspective and life is just too short to be unhappy so I chose to be happy form here on out!  If there is something you want to do in life just plan and execute and know that a sacrifice may come with it but the end result is all that matters. SO to you dreamers keep on dreaming and making it a reality.  Now enough about that lets move on to this outfit post.   Here is a quick and easy look to pull off denim!  Everyone loves denim so I figured let me put these three denim pieces for an all denim look and it worked.  No matter the color of denim I feel like denim on denim is always a good idea for certain occasion.  So if you have different color denim don't think you can't pair them together to make it a cute fit.  This outfit can also be dressed down with sneakers or even some oxfords to give a casual comfy look with a blazer or bomber, either way it will always be cute and you will get the use out of the clothes and shoes in that closet.  Hope you like this post and talk to you all soon.

70's Flare


Hello Closet Shoppers and Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend and ready for this new week to accomplish new goals!  So lets get into these flare jeans that I just want to wear with everything.  It has been some years since I have worn flare jeans but when they came back and I saw these I had to have them especially since they are high waist jeans and I don't know about you but, I love me a good pair of high waist jeans that can hide this tire around my waist lol!  The flare on these are just so awesome I am 70's baby so I love that era of clothing and back then they were flare everything. Only thing with flare is you have to get the right heel to wear with them or you will be walking on your jeans and you don't want that.   I have on platform booties that have a very thick and tall heel or you can get your flares taken up a bit so it falls right with what ever heels you want to wear.   I just made this look really simple with this chiffon shirt and just tied it at the waist, but you know jeans go with any and everything so this won't be the last you see of these I have so many plans for them.  Hope you enjoy this post.

Little Black Velvet Dress....Holiday outfit inspo #3


Hello Closet Shoppers,

Here is another dress outfit inspiration for the holidays.  Yes it is another velvet dress but this one is short and black.  I don't have many short dresses or skirts, a lot of my skirts and dresses are midi length but this time I was like let me show off my legs lol!   This dress can be worn with OTK (over the knee) boots, calf boots or booties like I did.  I paired with my ankle booties and tights so I can show my legs and my faux fur stole and kind of give it a sexy but classy look.  Hope you enjoy this post.

What is that ..Velvet? Holiday dress outfit inspo #2


Hello Closet Shoppers,




Here is another holiday outfit to inspire you on what you can wear to holiday party for work or with family and friends.  This season velvet is making a come back and to me velvet has never left it just was silent until the holidays came around but right now it seems like it is a bigger than ever this season and I am loving it.  They have everything form boots, heels, bombers, pants, and tops in velvet this season.    If you follow me on IG you saw I wore this dress out to a friends birthday dinner but had all intentions of blogging it since it is one of the perfect holiday dresses.  I made this look kind of simple since to me velvet says a lot so you really don't need to over power it with much else since it already speak for itself.  I threw on the faux fur stole over the shoulder to give it a more classy look with my leather and some calf boots, a little accessorizing like that can make the outfit pop!  Hope you enjoy this post!

All Black for the Holidays!!! Holiday outfit inspo #1

Hello Closet Shoppers,


Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend that just flew by!  Just like this month is flying by! I can't believe next week is thanksgiving and then a month form that is Christmas then New Years.  I can't believe this year is almost over, smh!  So since the holidays are coming I figured I put together a few post to give you all outfit inspo for the upcoming holidays. You all know I love a jumpsuit and I love it even more if it is all black because black is slimming and makes every lady look great!  This jumpsuit you can dress up or down.  This I would probably wear to Thanksgiving dinner.  If you have a family like mine and know that when it comes to getting together and you don't know what adventures the night might take you on so you kind of have to dress for the day.  I made this fit pretty simple and just threw on a velvet choker and my leather jacket.  Another option is to also wear it with your fave sneakers mine would be my black and white Adidas shell toes and bring my booties just in case the family wants to go out that night.  Got to stay prepared when your with family around the holiday you know? LOL!   But this can be worn to Christmas dinner with a blazer or if you have a new boo and your meeting the family for the first time for the holidays I think this or any jumpsuit is good because it is simple, comfy and effortless.  All you have to do is accessorize a little and your ready to roll. Hope you enjoy this post.
