Summer style, to me, is basically dressing in summer dresses and shorts. It pains me to even have to put on jeans in this horrific heat. This off the shoulder dress is the perfect print, and the style can be worn with sandals and a belt around the waist for a lunch date. I recently wore it (Instagram) for my momma dukes b-day dinner. I love that it’s off the shoulder because it gives it that sexy yet elegant look. For sure this LA Hearts dress stole my heart and the floral pattern was just the icing on the cake. For the shoes, I went neutral with nude wedges to keep the focus all on the dress and of course, this fabulous fringe clutch from Steve Madden. I was iffy mixing the clutch with the dress but again I took the risk and I’m sorry but I did a damn good job! (lol) Hopefully this helps you ladies pull the perfect summer look.

Fashion, celebrities, and designers … what more can a fashionista ask for on a Sunday Funday? Sunday, 24th of November, was the American Music Awards (AMA’s). Yes- I love watching the award show, but my favorite part is the red carpet. Celebrity watching and deciding who, in my opinion, gets best dressed and who gets worst dressed.

Best Dressed:  Well, I had a total of 4 girls for best dressed. These girls totally hit it out of the ball park with their stunning gowns and hot bods. There was definitely more than just 4 that looked beautiful but these are the ones who stood out for me.First lady with the #1 spot for best dressed, Fergie Fer. Showed off her killer legs while dressed in a black halter Halston Heritage dress with a side cut-out and gold belt.#2 is obviously JLO! Baby pink, silk bandage cutout dress from designer Reem Acra. She paired the dress with sparkly, pointy-toed stilettos and a sparkling gold box clutch. #3 Kate Beckinsale astonished me in a bright white Kaufman Franco gown. The glamorous gown was beautifully styled with a sparkling snake necklace and a metallic Lee Savage clutch. #4 Selena Gomez with both her red carpet and performance dresses she nailed it. Selena Gomez looked amazing in a long-sleeved, off the shoulder Giorgio Armani Prive black gown. When she turned around she revealed an unexpected hint of skin thanks to the fact that the dress was entirely backless with her hair in a bun, and statement earrings. Selena opened her performance with the opening monologue of her music video before the lights came up and revealed Selena in a beautiful pale pink dress. 

Nick Jonas didn’t fail to bring out his sophisticated side either, stepping out in a double-breasted striped suit by Armani. He walked the red carpet in a stylish suit, which was double-breasted to the extreme with eight buttons. Terrence J from E news and previous host of BET was my #2 best dressed for the guys. Super simple and traditional in Z Zegna, he looked crisp and kept it elegant with a deep purple suit.

Now on to worst dressed, I picked a total of 2 girls and 1 guy. Belona Qereti, what mirror or what friend would let this lady walk out the house with this? Not a real one! (lol). Skylar Grey … really Skylar? With that drop dead gorgeous voice you could have been just as evenly beautiful with a gown on, or even a pant suit. For the boys, oh Jesus, Ansel Elgort. Why couldn’t you get a tux that fit? That outfit was all kind of wrongs in so many ways- his stylist needs to get fired!

By far my favorite color for fall is: burgundy! It’s dark, mysterious, and devious. This slip-on dress is so beyond perfect and elegant … yet sexy. I gave you two looks on how to dress up this lace trim dress.

For the first look, over the dress is an oversized, off-white cardigan. A great wardrobe addition being that it can be paired with anything!!! To accessorize, a black hat to add a little sass, layered necklaces, and black heels (these in specific are are my most comfortable club heels!) 😉

For the second look, I think it leans more towards Miami. Throw on a jean jacket to spice up any outfit and it gives it more of a dinner-date feel. Fall calls for dark lipstick, and any little black bag. This outfit will be all over my Instagram just from how in love I am with it!

Oh, brownie points for me and taking chances on a online purchase orders! 🙂
