Black Polka Dot Chiffon Maxi Dress

Beautiful-black-pilka-dot-maxi-dress

Hello Beauties.

Can we just pause the time for a second? It feels like October was here like yesterday, and we are already half way through it. I can’t believe there’s less than 3 months left in this year. This year, I shamelessly skipped on Fall décor in my house, and only focused on our dining room table. I mean, in a couple of weeks we will be celebrating Thanksgiving, here in the US, and then every single aisle in every store will be filled with Christmas and holidays items… So yeah, no Fall décor this year, kiddos. πŸ™‚

Anyways, today’s post features an outfit shoot that has happened a while ago, so basically another lost file that is making its way to the blog. πŸ™‚

I have to admit that with me not being able to have photoshoot frequently nowadays, these lost files are “life-savers”; maybe not to that extreme, but I’m sure you got the point, Plus,  I can’t help but share this dress with you. Especially with the holiday season around the corner, I’m sure you ladies need some options here on the blog. Thank you for trusting me with that, by the way. πŸ™‚

They say polka dots make everything perfect, and I have to agree. The polka dots details on this plain chiffon black dress, absolutely makes a difference … and it is even so much prettier in person. The chiffon material flows beautifully and elegantly as you walk, and against the wind.

I would wear this dress to a formal and semi-formal event or on occasions that I just need to give more than the “Little Black Dress”. I think it’s classy and elegant and you can’t go wrong with it, whether you choose to dress it up to the nine, or keep it less formal by pairing it with a pair of sandals like I did here.
Now here comes the one million dollars question… What do you think of this dress? Would you wear it?

Off I go.

Money Green Dress | Floral Print Green Midi Dress

 Beautiful-green-prints-midid-dress-target-hypnozglam
Hello beauties,
Welcome to October! It’s officially “Wear a sweater in the morning, and regret it in the afternoon” weather, and I while I can’t admit that I’m ready for that type of weather, I’m definitely excited about October. I am an October baby, and my birthday was last Sunday (10-03). Now you know that I’m biased, but yes, I love October. 
I had a great time celebrating my birthday with my family, and I’m humbled and grateful for all the love shown to me by some friends and my online community. I appreciate all the birthday wishes, and if you are part of that amazing group of people who took time from their busy schedule to wish me well, THANK YOU! – I did share a word in honor of my birthday with my online community on Facebook and Instagram; and if you’re not following me on either of these platforms, you are missing out. πŸ™‚ I would love for you to join my social media community for more of my content and some behind-the-scenes.
Now let’s talk about this fabulous dress. Before we get into further details, let me just disclose that this dress is “an oldie but goodie” which basically means that the dress is old and sold-out,  but I link a few similar ones below that you can shop.
It’s fair to say that it was love at first sight! The print is bright and bold. I love that the rushed sides allow the dress  to hug your curves at the right places. The high slit is just high enough to show the right amount of skin! Classy yet sexy.  Another great detail about this dress is the stretch! This dress is form-hugging yet very forgiving… The turtleneck neck feature is great for this weather, but honestly perfect for every season since the fabric is lightweight and breathable. To top it off, that money green color is right up my alley. πŸ™‚ I love every details about this dress and I’m happy it’s now part of my dress collection. This is such a timeless dress and also perfect for the Holiday season which is right around the corner. Now take a look at the pictures below and tell me if you agree with me, that this is a beautiful and timeless number, and if you love how I styled it. 

         Off I go!

Here we are, Fall is officially here! Are we over Summer yet? Or are we excited to welcome autumn in full effect? Either way, happy Fall, guys! As for me, let’s just say that my birth month/birthday is around the corner, so that alone is worth the excitement. πŸ™‚

This dress is nothing short of amazing! The prints and patterns are beautiful, the fabric is soft and silky to the touch, the fit is comfortable, forgiving, sexy yet classy! LOVE..; and those heels were the perfect addition to the look. I remember getting so many compliments the day I was shooting this look, and one lady literally waited until I was done shooting to ask where I got the dress. πŸ™‚

This is one of those pieces you wear over and over because of how cute, comfortable, and appropriate they are for almost every outing or occasion.

How to wear a white sweater dress in Fall



white-wrap-dress-and-boots 2

Do you worry about wearing white after Labor Day? That’s old news. No one cares; and you shouldn’t either. πŸ™‚ Sweater dresses are so timeless and never out of style. It’s one trend that keeps repeating itself; and with Fall and Winter around the corner, you better start stocking up on them, friends!

If you ask me, every woman should have at least one sweater dress in their closet; especially if you live in a four season country or city. I must say one of my absolute favorite pieces during cold weather is a nice comfortable sweater dress that can be easily dressed up, and can keep me warm, comfortable, and well put-together

Whether is turtleneck, oversized, sleeveless or a wrap style – like the one I’m wearing here – you can’t go wrong. Styling options for sweater dresses are endless.

Some of the fashionable ways to style a sweater dress in the Fall and Winter are depicted below:

 

Because sweater dresses are known to be worn during autumn or winter, one of the most popular ways to style a sweater dress is to add a nice pair of tall boots or booties and Voila! Simple as that.

– For inspiration, take a look at this post HERE

  • Sweater Dress layered up with a faux-fur vest.

Faux fur vests are so stylish; and if you want to make a statement with an outfit, a nice fur-vest may just help you do that. Just have fun with it. A stylish outfit is only limited by your imagination. πŸ™‚

It’s a no-brainer! A posh and tailored coat is always the easiest way to elevate your look, when the weather calls for it, of course; and for that elegant and chic look, go for a monochromatic look. If you’re a hat lover like myself, finish your look with a nice hat. Hello miss detective! πŸ™‚

What are your thoughts on Sweater dresses? Are you feeling inspired yet to start shopping for stylish and comfortable sweater dresses? I selected a few styles below that you may find right up your alley. Happy shopping.

Black Kimono with African Prints by AKOFA


 

Black-kimono-ankara-akofaHello Beauties,

It’s been a minute and this post is way overdue, but it’s finally here.

My family and I were on vacation for a few days, and after coming back, we wanted to make sure that everything is well taken cared for the kids to start their school year on a great note and for us to get back to work, refreshed and reinvigorated.

If you’re following me on IG, you have probably seen a glimpse of our stay in Florida. We stayed at the Henderson resorts  and  we had a blast; even though we had to cancel a few of our outdoors activities because of the weather.  To make things even better, my husband and I have also attended a 3 days married couples’ retreat which was held at the same resort. Being that August was our wedding anniversary month, it was the perfect occasion to renew our wedding vows at this amazing couples’ retreat.

Now let’s talk about this look, and why this upcoming  designer – Akofa – is one of my absolute favorite designers.

First of all, I’m biased because Akofa, the designer behind the brand Akofa’s, and the kimono I’m wearing in this post is a good friend of mine. A sister, that I love deeply and have seen growing every day into a multi-talented individual and successful entrepreneur. ( I have previously introduced her HERE).

Her Afrocentric designs are timeless, chic and authentically beautiful.  In fact, she had her very first and successful fashion show at the Ankara Festival in LA, last weekend. Such a proud moment for myself and our community! I wish this beautiful sister of mine, nothing but the absolute best. Check out her collections, including the kimono I’m wearing in this post on www.Akofas.com . She’s also on Instagram and Facebook.

This look is giving me a classy vibe, and the pop of color adds a fun touch to it. I have styled this kimono with jeans, as a loungewear, and I love the versatility of style it offers.  (It also comes in other colors and prints)

This kimono is such a cute and timeless piece that you can throw on, and just go about your day. It also makes a great transitional piece into Fall.

What do you think?
