Afro-American fusion with Nadiaka Vêtements

Ethnic-orange-maxi-dress-nadiaka-hypnozglam

Hello Beauties, 

I’m coming with another great collaboration with a brand that I absolutely love! I have collaborated with Nadiaka Vêtements a few years ago on a New York fashion show event and it was one for the book.

This time along, our collaboration is more so on featuring some of their pieces on the blog; and I can tell you that I had a great time styling and shooting this dress! I call this dress Fall In love with Nadiaka, because the dress reminds me of the beautiful hues of Fall and it so aspiringly exudes a fresh new chapter as the weather is getting cooler, pumpkin patches arise, and pumpkin spice lattes fill the air with their enticing aroma. Hummm…

Everything about this dress screams the modern day traditional gal, and I played around this concept by styling it with these fall high-knee boots, a nice long coat, and a cute fedora hat – instead of the matching head wrap that came with the dress – to completed the look. My goal is to show my audience that an Afrocentric dress can be styled in all seasons and transformed into a beautiful Afro-American fusion.

The art work on this dress is beautiful and the fit is elegant and regal! It gives me that “Rich aunty vibe”, like the folks on Instagram would say.😀 As you can see from how I styled this dress, it can easily transition into all seasons.

Wear it as it is, or adorned with the beautiful matching head wrap in the Summer or Spring and go about your day. Add a coat or layer it up with a turtleneck underneath in the colder weather and jazz it up with some nice accessories and you have yourself a fall or winter look. Either way, this is a statement ethnic dress that can’t go unnoticed, so have fun styling it!

Now let me tell you what I love about this designer and their brand! The quality of their garments is nothing short of amazing; their craft and workmanship is outstanding and their eye for artistic designs when it comes to their ethnic clothes and accessories is just astonishing! For years, this designer had remain authentic to her brand and her vision and continues to deliver amazing styles and work… and, yes, she’s black-owned! * I have to throw that in, since we are all making an effort to support more black-owned businesses with everything going on around us. * The truth of the matter is, this is a brand that I love, and I’m happy to represent!

All Black everything featuring the “WOW” Dress

wow-black-dress-black-boots-all-black -outfit

Hello beauties, 

Are you all preparing for the holidays festivities yet? Christmas week is two weeks away and I’m just starting decorating the house. As every other celebrations this year, I’m sure the holidays are going to be weird on many levels, but this has become our new normal for the past few months. We must not complain, but rather find creative ways to enjoy the moment and, of course remain grateful. 

You all know a classy little black dress never goes out of style; and even tough this particular black dress comes with a little pizzazz, it’s still a classic and one to make a bold statement! And if you’re not afraid of making an even bolder statement, what’s better that a pair of black high-knee boots, a cute beret hat to make it All Black Everything! This is quite a fun and versatile black dress with intriguing details that can take you from seasons to season. It’s like that one piece you don’t find everywhere that you’d like to cherish for years to come!

What do you think of this look? 

If you like the dress, message me… and do it fast, because it’s limited stock and only comes in selected sizes! Be the first to own this! 😉

Xoxo

Shades of brown for Fall /Winter

beautiful-brown-tan-work-outfit

Hello beauties,

If you’re trying to figure out how December had gotten here so quickly, let me know when you find out! 🙂
The whole 2020 has been a test for the books, and I’m sure we all want some changes from it. However, it also seems like the last few months flew by. Who’s complaining anyways? Not me lol!
I’m grateful to have made it to the last quarter and I pray that this month brings more solace, more love, more accomplishments, more blessings, and more grace!

Now to this outfit… Did you all get over fall hues yet? I hope not, because I’m not. 🙂 Even though December usually ushers us into the holiday styles and colors, I’m still very fond of fall colors this season; and this classy look is totally giving me a Fall feel and vibe! And this button-down shirt? Perfection! I’m not sure what I love the most about this shirt… The silky feel, the deep tan color or the cute tigers prints. Maybe a combination of all. I think I will get a lot of use out of this blouse. It was nicely paired with these lightweight trousers of a deeper brown hue to create a chic and classy yet comfortable and simple outfit for either the office or to take care of business.
Are you feeling this look?

These pictures have been taken a few months ago, on our anniversary night in Las Vegas. It was a real struggle trying to take pictures without our masks on, as the hotel insisted we all wear them, but we did manage to snap a couple ones quickly; and we did clean up nicely! 🙂

Off-shoulder fall floral maxi dress for Thanksgiving

floral-print-off-the-shoulder-maxi-dress

This print off-the-shoulder maxi dress is one of a kind, and is quite the all-season statement maxi dress you wouldn’t regret having in your closet. The dress is feminine, flirty, fun, and bold at the same time; and definitely a great conversation starter. I first wore this dress on a Summer trip and I was happy that it’s sustainable and kept me fresh and cool on those hot Vegas streets.

The fact that the dress can be worn on and off the shoulder is a plus, because it serves as a great transitional dress in cooler days and never fails to get the conversation started. The detachable sash belt has also served as scarf or head tie as shown in this post. I was going for a chic island vibe when putting this outfit together; and I think it turned out perfect.

I added a fun and bold belt in lieu of the sash that came with the dress. Even though the dress is a statement on its own, I don’t think the belt took away from it. The buttons down on the skirt part of the dress are such great details, as you can show more skin if you want, especially for a breath of fresh air. I think this dress would be a nice choice for a family thanksgiving gathering. It’s cute and different, and it will definitely be a good ice breaker.
