I am a firm believer that you can dress sophisticated, classy and still be sexy all at the same time. It’s all about putting together the right garments to create the perfect balance. There’s no formula or one way to accomplish this but generally, I follow the rule that if you are accentuating one part of your body, you conceal the others to create that mix. Also, adding details to your look such as a sleek high heel shoe to accentuate your legs or an off the shoulder top to expose a bit of your top half can really add to your outfit.

When I first eyed these pixie pants from Old Navy, I fell in love with the print. I love anything leopard print especially for the Fall. I’m always looking for garments that offer great versatility and even though this is a distinct print, you can still create a lot of looks from it. In my case, I wanted to make it more of a going out look so I paired it with an open front blazer and a bodysuit that has an added strap on top. With some high heel sandals and red accents, I was ready for a night on the town.

The official first day of Fall is tomorrow and I, like many of you, have already begun dabbling in Fall styles. One of my go-to pieces season after season is a great moto jacket. This garment never goes out of style because it is universally flattering and very functional. With its many variations, moto jackets can go from a simple yet classic design for more casual looks to embellished details for a higher end look. This moto jacket from HSN is right in the middle, allowing me to dress it up or down. The rich camel color is perfect for the season, channeling the vibrant hues of Fall foliage. It also has a great stretch lining that makes it breathable and not stiff like some jackets have the tendency to do. I paired my jacket with skinny jeans (also a staple) that provide comfort and style as well as a simple white tank.

All of these products from HSN are part of a Fall Fashion Collection, The Fashion Edit, which includes brands like Wendy Williams, IMAN, Vince Camuto and June Ambrose. HSN has many options for the season from boots to accessories and of course clothing. Be sure to check out their full selection here and snag your favorites for Fall!

One thing that I love to do during the Fall and Winter seasons is to layer. Layering is a great way to be stylish, by pairing some unexpected pieces together, while staying warm during the cooler months. The best ways to accomplish layered looks are with jackets, sweaters and my personal favorite, scarves. Since temperatures are still high here in Southern California, I decided to go with a light layered look that would be fitting for the weather. I chose a sweater dress as the base that is a great staple to have. I can easily swap out the denim jacket for a sleek moto jacket and high heel booties for a night out look. Since I wanted to keep the look casual, however, a denim jacket was the perfect complement. The plaid button up top added a pop of color to the outfit and I finished it off with some comfortable peep toe booties. A great option for the Fall transition.

Beauty…Your Way

September 16, 2015



Volition Fav 2

Volition Fav 3

Beauty and fashion are closely intertwined industries. Both allow you the ability to present the best version of yourself based on your own style and aesthetics. It’s a way of self-expression and shows a glimpse into who you are. Traditionally, we as consumers have been influenced by what is highlighted in mainstream media. The latest trends and newest crazes all stem from what brands decide that we should flock to. But what if we had the power to decide for ourselves?

Let me introduce you to Volition Beauty. Volition is a new cosmetics line that is changing the beauty industry as we know it by giving the decision making power back to consumers. What does that mean? At, you have the ability to tell the company what products you want made instead of it being the other way around. Members can browse through their site to discover products that they would like to vote on. Once a product campaign gets enough votes, Volition creates the product and anyone who voted for the product can purchase it at a discount (up to 40% off!) – just for voting! Volition works with the top labs and cosmetic chemists, the same ones that formulate for leading luxury brands, to make their community member’s product ideas a reality. So essentially, you will be getting name brand quality at cheaper price (where do I sign up?).

I love the idea of taking matters into your own hands and deciding what products to create so I had to try it out for myself. I was drawn to the Instant Mattifying Mist from their product collection because of my oily-prone skin. I was looking for something that would keep me matte and smooth all day. As soon as I sprayed the product on my skin, I instantly became a believer. I could immediately tell a difference and could feel my skin tightening to close up my pores. I was compelled to vote and that’s just what I did. You can do the same! Head over to, sign up and vote on a product you would like to have. You could be a part of the start of a beauty revolution!

As an added bonus, I’m giving away an amazing CoCreation Collection filled with 4 deluxe sized samples of current product campaigns so that you, too, can try these out for yourselves. I wish that I could hold on to this myself but I love y’all too much not to share. To enter to win this gift is simple: browse through the product campaigns on, vote on a product and tell me what you voted on. That’s it and the prize could be yours! Be sure to comment on this post below.

Fall Forward

September 13, 2015








Starting to feel like Fall yet? I’ve partnered with HSN to showcase some of their newest Fall looks. HSN has an extensive selection of options from straight sizes to plus that are on trend and stylish. With collaborations from Iman to June Ambrose to Serena Williams, you can get quality garments with a great payment plan to go with it.

As you may already know, I love garments that are versatile and can be worn for many different occasions. These wine colored pants from June Ambrose are perfect for the office and can be just as stylish with a sleek top for a girls night out. The camel and wine are a great color combination for Fall and really play off of each other well. By themselves, however, they can also offer a great foundation for a Fall look, wearing the top with jeans and booties and the bottoms with a faux fur vest a white blouse. A girl’s gotta have options!

Be sure to check out HSN’s new arrivals for your Fall fashion needs. Also, stay tuned for another featured look coming soon!

Catherines Denim Debut

The fall season is approaching and with it comes much excitement for new trends and styles. One thing that is always a staple for fall (and really every season) is a great pair of jeans. Denim is the foundation for any look and is probably the most versatile garment that you can own. Whether you want to dress it up or dress it down, jeans can provide the right balance that you need while still offering comfort and style.

I’ve teamed up with Catherines Plus Sizes to debut some of their fall denim collection. Catherines, a sister brand to Lane Bryant, has nearly 400 locations nationwide and offers a wide range of styles from 16W-34W and 0X-5X. With denim styles from curvy fit to straight leg to a stretch knit, they truly have options for every body type. I chose two different styles of jeans to create some fall looks that are perfect for this time of transition. The first is a casual weekend look with the True Stretch denim and a light layer cardigan. I love the way that sweaters, particularly cardigans, add an effortless touch to an outfit and the wine color is perfect for the season. The second is a desk to drinks outfit with the Catherines Knit Jeans and an animal print blouse. Being in the work force, it is great to have pieces that are appropriate for the office yet stylish enough for after work cocktails.

Be sure to browse Catherines’ wide selection to find the perfect pair for you! Also, take this fun quiz to find out what your denim personality is.

It’s no secret that I am a fan of color and this outfit proves it. With Summer coming to an end, I wanted to go out with a bang and have an outfit that personified everything that I love about the season. I love how the colors on this skirt look a bit random and unplanned, which is totally indicative of my Summer. It’s just overall a fun print that reflects my colorful yet crazy personality. I paired it with a black top and shoes because let’s face it, the skirt didn’t need any help. I also wanted it to be the focal point of the look. Get your last bit of bright colors in for the Summer ladies. Then its on to Fall!
