Another thing I love about the nineties were all the beautiful range of colors women would wear. It all made the world seem like a happier place. After all, colors can have an effect on your mood.

Rock Star Chic
This fit was inspired by Paris Street fashion. I added my own touch by classing it up with nude pumps and rocking out with my natural fro. It has such a rock and roll vibe, hence the name Rock Star Chic.
I have been busy trying to figure out how I am going to get the money to study abroad in Paris this September. It's 6,750 more than what I have now. I continue to go over different scenarios that help me get the money. Do you guys know of any good ideas that I can try?

Don't sweat the small stuff
At the end of the day focusing on things that really matter, makes all the blemishes seem so small. Lesson: Don't sweat the small stuff, life is short.

Style Inspire 11/21/12
There is no other color that embodies chic like all black everything. Fashion has always had love affair with black ever since Coco Chanel said "Every girl should have a little black dress."
This fall I am inspired by over sized clothing on a petite silhouette, mixing borrowed from the boy’s pieces with sexy leather and boxy coats. The dark neutrals are very chic and reminiscent of the East coast downtown girl.
I spy menswear, 90's chain links, fabulous gold, leopard thigh highs done right and a sexy maxi. The red lips and sunglasses add nothing but cool to this ensemble.. I am inspired by the use of gold accessories and the pop of leopard. The men’s sweater over a simple maxi made this a unique stylish outfit. This black on black coolness was seen on the streets of Paris.
Business as usual
I have always longed for the day when the wedge sneaker would be back in full effect. I remember this trend from the days of school girl crushes, the Britney Spears take-over and 11 o'clock curfews. Your age starts to show when you see a trend and say, "Hey, we used to wear that." Honestly, I never thought I'd see the day so soon.
It is my belief that you will be seeing this a lot this Fall. The wedge sneaker can be dressed up or down. It can instantly edge up any outfit. I plan on relying heavily on this footwear this Fall. I am looking for a pair to snatch up now.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
