Last weekend for Mother’s Day I was honored to have the chance to style my own “Boss Chic Walk” in the annual Mother/Daughter Fashion Show given by the Sandra M Estes Scholarship Foundation locally. The scholarship is intended for single mothers attending nursing school to help with their college tuition. A good friend of mine, Marissa, started this fashion show last year in honor of her mother, where women and their daughters coordinate outfits and strut on stage. The little girls who are in the show every year always steal the spotlight with their diva attitudes and fierce walks!
In my personal section, I had ten models that I chose to walk and wear looks that I styled myself. I got some of the pieces from my own closet and some were found while thrifting. Other items came from some of the models themselves. They were all such a big help and so cooperative in the fast paced environment. I couldn’t be more thankful! All of the accessories for my part of the show came from Trixi’s Closet, who graciously let me use anything they had without hesitation. The different looks were put together with Trixi’s Closet jewelry in mind to show how versatile the pieces are. Not to mention to showcase how dope my style is! LOL jk or am I?
Check out the gallery from the fashion show below and leave a comment with your thoughts! I also posted a detailed list of what each of my models wore as well as what they had on from Trixi’s Closet. I’m so thankful I got the opportunity to support such a good cause!
I LOVE Mossimo tank tops! These are the only tank tops that I buy now! I used to be hard on Old Navy’s but I have to get an extra small for them to fit me just right, and they still don’t stretch as much as I like. On the other hand, these Mossimo tanks fit perfectly! Now I will say that I have a very small waist in comparison to my hips, however my stomach is far from flat. This is one of my main insecurities, but you’ll never know (wait I just told you lol) because I’m constantly getting compliments about how tiny I am. It’s an illusion and I owe it to well fitted clothing!
I don’t think people realize how much the way your clothes fit can make or break your outfit. Wearing tanks that are too small can make you look like you have no boobs and a muffin top. You definitely don’t want to squeeze into them! At the same time, a tank that’s too big just looks sloppy and tacky. I hate when my tanks are too big because I constantly have to fool with the straps to keep my bra covered. So if you’re looking for the perfect tank for the spring and summer, definitely stop by Target and cop you a few Mossimo tanks! They’re only $8 a piece but sometimes you can catch them on special. They have plenty of designs to choose from and they are in stock year round. Thank me later!
What’s up bosses and boss chics! Remember last week that I told you to be on the lookout for something big from my best friend? Well it’s about that time to get excited for what she has in store! Later this week Trixi’s Closet will be making its debut at www.shoptrixiscloset.com where the every day woman can find affordable accessories.
I for one am ecstatic about what my friend Tia is doing because she’s putting my city on the map. Not only that but she’s putting as many people on as possible in the process, mainly her girls and I love the fact that we build each other up. It’s like we’re one team working towards taking over the world lol no seriously…You’ll see soon enough! I sat down with Tia and asked her a few questions regarding her upcoming online store and got in her head a little as well.
Check out the interview after the break as well as a gallery containing a few exclusive pics spotted with Trixi’s Closet accessories!
Happy Valentine’s Day bosses and boss chics! I hope everyone is spending their day with the one they love! If not suck it up, it’s just one day lol. Anywho remember awhile back I had annouced that I would be doing a giveway for Valentine’s Day? I asked readers to send a pic of a Valentine’s Day date inspired outfit and let us know where the items came from, then we would vote. However I only received one response and she actually sent three different looks!
Destiny, who is from my hometown but now a freshman at UVA, did her thing with her three Valentine’s Day date looks! I think the first look is sexy and fit for a romantic dinner date. The second is more flirty and fun and fit for a date that’s more casual and laid back. The last look is chic and classy, but still not too dressy. It could be worn on a fancy date, or just a casual date depending on how you feel for the day. Destiny got all of her pieces from Forever21 but the red dress on the left came from GoJane.
I love how she gave us different looks that all tie in to the lover’s holiday. She played it up with the color red but kept it versatile at the same time. Destiny is one of my favorite fashionistas and she’s still young so imagine how her style will evolve over time. Get it girl! Be on the lookout for your gift in the mail soon and thanks so much for participating!
One of the best things about Thanksgiving is all the deals that come on Black Friday and the cyber sales the following week. A few weeks ago, I did a post about Old Navy’s color skinny jeans which have been seen on a few celebrities like Blake Lively and Katie Holmes. Well this week those jeans are on sale for only $19 so of course I had to share! They have at least 20 different colors or patterns so hit up OldNavy.com if you’re interested!
PS: These would make a perfect Christmas gift for any woman in your life (or yourself). Don’t say I never gave ya’ll anything
One of my favorite boss chics Nicole Richie was spotted out and about with her daughter Harlow going to the Fresh Beat Band concert. Of course she looked fly from head to toe per usual, but it was her cutout boots that stood out the most to me. Nicole is rocking Balenciaga’s cutout boots which run at $1295 a pop. Crazy right??
I love the boots but Lord knows I can’t afford them, however I found a more budget friendly pair for us boss chics on budget! NastyGal.com has a very similar pair for $248, which is still a hump but for that brand the price isn’t bad. I actually like Nasty Gal’s version better, especially the gold accents on the buckles. Check after the break for a close up of both boots and let us know if you’re feeling them!
What’s up bosses and boss chics? I was browsing through some of my favorite fashion sites today when I discovered that Betsey Johnson’s online store is going out of business. The website had everything on sale for 50% or more and all dresses were on sale for 60%. However when I started looking through the different clothes, there were none lol.
People had already gone to work on the sale and beat me to the punch on just about everything. There’s only a handful of items left on the site altogether, but I did manage to find a cute pair of cheetah print tights on the website for only $12. They are only available in small or medium sizes now, but I definitely think they’re worth the steal! They would be cute in the fall/winter with a fly pair of boots
What’s up bosses and boss chics? Spring has got me in fashion overdrive with each passing warm, sunny day. I’m so excited about the summer and vacations and free weekends, trips to the pool, the beach, etc. Of course you can’t do all of that without dressing the part. I wanted to start doing regular posts showcasing stylish pieces you can find for cheap at your local stores everywhere. Sort of like a look for less, but we’ll call it bossy on budget
On that note, these Mossimo Floral Shorts were found at target.com for only $17.99 and they are SO chic! These are perfect for a casual day when you still want to look your best. They also come with the skinny belt and I thought that was a great accessory to have in your closet. I created a look based around the shorts and tried to keep it inexpensive; and of course you know you can always find similar items for less at different stores. Anywho I paired the shorts with brown oxfords by Steve Madden and a stonewash denim chambray shirt from Forever21. You can check those out below and leave a comment with your thoughts! Are you feeling this look?
