Please forgive my absence over the last few days, but I am still in disbelief (as I am sure most of you are) about the senseless tragedy that took place in Newtown, Connecticut last week.

Look for Less: Sequined Heart Sweater

You guys know I love my sparkle. I love sequins, glitter, shine, etc. Since sequins are not everyday attire, I have been looking for sequins that I can wear on a casual day.

Love and War

If you know me, you know that I love music. I do not limit myself to any particular type of music, I just have one stipulation, the artist needs to have talent. I love a good, unassisted, raw pure voice.

Look for Less: LeToya Luckett

I follow various people on Instagram to get style inspiration. It is pretty much the only reason I even use Instagram. I was scrolling through my timeline when I saw this picture of LeToya Luckett.

Bargain Hunting

If you know me, you know I love my bargains. I do not buy much of anything before I find it at the absolute lowest price.

Favorite Stylists

I can generally be found browsing the web for fashion inspiration and a few years ago stylists took over my number one spot for style stalking. I like my good direct from the source so why not follow the people credited with creating looks for top celebrities?

Clockwise: Becca Alexis, Olori Swank, June Ambrose Beagy Zielinski

Black Lace

I really love the look of black lace. Something about it is really classic and timeless, two characteristics I look for in an ensemble.

I saw Khloe Kardashian in these Pucci lace up boots almost a year ago now, and since then I have been lusting over them.

Coming to H&M: Margiela Madness

Every year H&M collaborates with a big name designer. For 2012 they have collaborated with Maison Martin Margiela, the Belgian fashion powerhouse that has become the obsession of premium players on the music scene, including Kanye West.

Makeup Mondays: The Perfect Brow

Everyone who knows me knows that I am crazy for eyebrows. I definitely believe that eyebrows frame your face, and if they do not look good you may as well not even waste your time with the rest of your face. For the perfect brow, I look to one of my fave YouTube gurus LilPumpkinPie05 bka Jackie Aina.

Wednesday Wish List

A while back I created something I called my “to get list” essentially a wish list, of items that I would mark off as I acquired them. Websites like Polyvore, Shopstyle and Pinterest have only made my list longer but thankfully all of my “to get” items can be put in one place. This week my Wednesday Wish List is pretty big because my birthday is coming up, and I have to give plenty of hints to my husband. *blushes* Check out some of my current obsessions below.

Look for Less: Kim Kardashian

Let me say that I was a huge fan of Kim Kardashian if for nothing else, but for her fashion. I just loved her style…that is until Kanye came into the picture and appointed himself the position of VP of Kim’s wardrobe. Nearly all of her looks now make me want to take a nap. Don’t get me wrong, I like black and white, and leather, but come on, how she dresses now is just not nearly as fly as she was dressed before…THEN I saw her at the Louise Goldin Spring 2013 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. I LOVED everything about this look…and of course I am obsessed with it.

Emmy's 2012

Please forgive me for being tardy for the party, but I never watch awards shows. I have been seeing Emmy Awards best dressed lists all over the web. Most looks were not doing it for me, but I managed to pick my 10 favorite looks of the night.

Fly Fridays

To end the week, I would like to focus on the flyness of various individuals. Today’s subject is none other than Solange Knowles. She was spotted at the Roberto Cavalli Spring 2013 show wearing what else but Roberto Cavalli, which she paired with celebrity fave Christian Louboutins.

Coated Denim

One of my fall wishlist items is a pair of coated denim jeans. I love how it looks like leather, but still has some stretch to it, for the perfect fit. You can find it everywhere right now, and at all price points. What are your thoughts on trend? The other great thing about coated denim is that its now available in a million colors.

Falling for Fragrance

I am pumped for fall fashion because I feel a little more polished with my coat, scarf, boot combo. Since my birthday is in October, I usually pick a new fall fragrance to wear as well. Over the past year, I fell hard and fast for all things Marc Jacobs, the man does no wrong when it comes to perfume, and his latest endeavor is no different. I was at Sephora the other day and smelled his newest creation Dot and I DIED!!! It has been added to the repertoire needless to say. Below you will find my fall faves.

Wedge Sneakers

So my current obsession happens to be hidden wedge sneakers, some are a miss for me, because the styling is just not sleek enough, on the other hand I have found no less than 4 pairs that I would LOVE to have in my closet right now these, these, these, and last but certainly not least these. This isn't the first time sneakers with a heel have made their way onto the fashion scene I don't think I need to remind people of the Air Force Ones that had a heel a few years back...SMH. Lukily we have far better options available to us these days.
