Club BeBe – My Dress Obsession

Standard

#BeBe’s brands are designed in-house with a great marketing campaign that has seen the likes of Rebecca Romijn, Eva Longoria and more recently Chanel Iman. A lot of people criticize BeBe: they often say the store is too pricey, poor quality merchandise and I know bebe has gone through some executive changes as well when the founder stepped down and an interim CEO was placed at the helm.
But take another look at #BeBe stores. Im here to share my obsession with their dresses. I love it when I walk into the store and they know my name. The staff at #QuakerBridgeMall are so darling and helpful, never overbearing. They have some style of their own too, I’ve told them on numerous occasions. The manager is great, eager to assist you in finding the perfect dress for any occasion. Their dresses go from modest to chic to even couture. You can always accessorize too. The wall boasts great shoes, bags and jewelry along with my favorite-the clearance wall and racks. As I’m happy with my wonderful purchases the manager reminds me not to forget to take advantage of my #Clubbebe points and discounts. Did I mention they have the best fitting leggings on the planet. So go back, take another look at bebe, I’m sure you’ll agree. If it’s still to pricey, hit the sales rack. Check them out and let me know if you agree?

July 4th Weekend Summer Essentials

Standard

‚ÄčThe Bare Necessities! Are you ready for July 4th Weekend? Everyone is headed to the beach. Schools out, families start their vacations. The key is to pack just the bare necessities. Some things are standard, blanket, towel, chair, and umbrella. But for the Diva or Fashionista the bare necessities list goes on. You don’t need your entire make-up counter or the whole closet. You will be walking the beach so choose your shoes wisely here’s my list for my July 4th get-away- flip flops A great pair that goes from sand to the boardwalk. I love my #OP’s I got from #Walmart, Summer make-up palette includes my; Mac lip stick, Sephora lip gloss, white Roxy mesh/halter 2-piece bathing suit, matching mesh cover-up for chilly nights, Dr. Miracles tingling moisturizer. A hair tie, LV Overnight bag, LV Crossbody to carry my IPhone credit cards and ID. My Johnson’s baby oil, Skin So Soft body oil spray (original of course, keeps Mosquitos away) Bath & Body Works True Escape Body spray, Juicy Couture-Couture Parfum, London Times Sundress, Closet Glam Wooven Sunhat, & lace white leggings in case the night gets chilly. All squeezed into my one bag. Can’t forget my Swarovski Crystal Stud earrings. My Nook and my #BeatsbyDRE headphones complete my bag. Now I’m ready for July 4th.

Friendly Reminder, moisturize and no pro- longed over exposure to the sun if your sensitive. Sun block, sun block. The sand is a natural skin exfoliant mixed with ocean water so rinse skin thoroughly after leaving the water. Then moisturize your skin after a cool shower. Have fun and I wanna see your Beach Essentials and pics. Have fun this coming weekend, more importantly BE SAFE! Love, Trendsetters/Glamour Nation

Starting to Feel Like Summer

Standard

My first trip to the beach. Asbury Park Beach and Boardwalk. A day with my son and his family and my niece Aquila. The sun is high and extremely hot. I don’t remember the last time I was here but it cost $5 to enter the beach (a New Jersey thing), we found a nice spot to lay out. Ke-an we found is a sand baby, he had everyone buried in the sand and used our shoes to do it. Beach bumming it with the Fam, laid out and soaked up the sun rays.
(My fashion choice #ClosetGlam cover up, #OceanPacific beach flops, #ClosetGlam cat-eye shades. Aquila had on an #H&M bathing suit with cover-up. Ti-Anna, Keith and Ke-an wore swimwear from their closet.)

Feeding My Mind & Body

Standard

I’ve been trying to stick to a healthy lifestyle. I don’t like that curse word (diet) cause when you say it, you’re doomed to fail it. So let’s say we’re adopting a healthier lifestyle. This includes: moving, some form of exercise, eating right and thinking right. Me and my workout partner, prayer warrior and cousin (Eyvonda) we went to yoga class, then we shopped #TraderJoes and had early dinner at #Chipotles. I then headed to the library and found two great book at a bargain. Normally I’m a #Nook gal but sometimes I just need that hardback book.
#TraderJoes haul: spinach dip, light sour cream, light cream cheese, raisin rosemary crisps, spanakoplias, Thai curry sauce and snack toasts.
#EwingLibrary haul: “Enemies-History of the FBI”, “The Power of Habit-Why We Do What We Do In Life and Business”
A few pictures of us Girl talking at #Chipotles

Backstage at Rutgers BSU Fashion Show.

Standard

Last year I was ask to design a line to be featured in the Rutgers BSU Fashion Show. My team consisted of my family as always. But I’m flashing back to my style. Custom Silk Pants Set I helped design but was made by a great friend/sister Ermine from Atlanta, GA. It’s one of my favorite pieces of the many she has custom made for me. What you think?
