Vintage Boyfriend denim jackets are back!

 Last week was an awesome week to start fresh with a new "To do list." Happy birthdays, innovative designs and most of all a new year! I am currently playing with some of the top trends in the early 80's and  mixing and matching with current trends. Incorporating throwbacks into my closet has been fun.

Here I am wearing a boyfriend denim jacket, with my sleeves rolled up to give it more of a sporty vintage look. Also I wore a VIP boyfriend shirt, simple black and white with a mid thigh length to show off my legs, also to add a bit of hip and sexy!

Fuzzy Sweaters & things...

Hello Fashionista's, this weekend I came to you with a winter sweater and bold prints to spice up my Naomi Campbell walk. The sweater I am wearing is soft, fuzzy and still warm enough to rock in south Florida's mild winter weather. Also to add a bold look to my outfit, I wore a leopard print spandex. Minimal gold colored accessory and a bright red lipstick to make sure that all eyes are on me. Never be alarmed with what you wear, instead you should own it!

Ladies yes, it is officially Winter and it has been for quite a while. While the majority of the nation is freezing their rears off, i am in Florida having fun in the sun. Florida was not named the sunshine state for no reason, mean while i am wearing very bright colors and show stopping you might ask, "Why does she look like spring in the Winter?" Well, i break rules that's for sure! There is absolutely no rules against shining bright like a diamond during this season with bright colors like yellow, orange, pink, and white. Here are a few photos of myself on how i was soaking up the sun!

Sally Hansen- Hard as Wraps Acrylic Gel + Nylon

Sally Hansen acrylic gel polish is a great way to keep my nails hard and to prevent them from chipping. With the exception of buying the product and doing my nails myself,  it was a lot less enexpensive than going to a nail salon shop. It only takes approximately 10 min out of my time to apply the gel and polish to my nails versus the half an hr that I would spend at a local nail salon shop. Being on a limited budget this $10 purchase saved me from spending $30. 

Acrylic gel + Nylon 

1. File and clip nails 
2. Rinse hands & dry 
3. Mosturise & fingers
4. Apply polish
5. Apply  2 coats of Acrylic Gel polish

Burgundy's silenced statement

While everyone strutted they're burgundy colored clothes in the winter, I am breaking out this spring season with a flashy sophisticated attire to lesson the burgundy cool colors that was trending heavily last season.

As seen in the picture below this burgundy skirt blends well with my dark ebony skin and gives off an allusion that I am thinner and leaner. This burgundy skirt is naturally giving off a bold statement, so to lesson it's hype I paired it with a black sheer leopard collard blouse and a pair of strap nude pumps. Always remember not everyone trends along with the trend during its highest peak, be you! A flashy, yet sophisticated attire with minimal silver jewelry pieces to keep all eyes on me!

Blouse: Seek Unique Boutique
Skirt: Forever21
Jewelry: Kay Jewelers

Tip: Stay tuned for a SWK Vlog clip on 3 different ways to wear this burgundy pencil skirt.

Recently i decided to head to the M.A.C cosmetic store located in the Aventura mall in search of a popping red lipstick! Knowing exactly what shade of red i was looking for, for just $15 i purchased this beautiful Ruby Woo red lipstick that goes lovely with my dark complexion. Although there are a few other shades of red that i wanted to take home with me but to stay within my monthly spending limit i made a run for it with just one lipstick. I have always been a fan,  M.A.C cosmetics is a great brand. The quality of the products and for the major fact that M.A.C works in harmony with women of color such as myself.

These shoes i purchased from Traffic shoe store at the Boca Town center mall are just $35, with multiple colors they are well underneath my monthly spending budget.

Avon Beaded Chic Bracelet

This spring Avon has come out with the Beaded chic bracelet. At a fair and reasonable price, how do we determine what would be considered fine jewelry in today's market..? Well i always say if it compliments your skin complexion and doesn't fade on to your skin, than we have a winner. Woman commonly buy inexpensive accessorized jewelry as appose to "real" expensive jewelry that hardly matters anymore due to the lack of creativity put into it. Although, i do pride myself after i purchase what would be considered to be real or expensive jewelry because i choose to purchase it on sale. I can vouch that fine jewelry or real jewelry will never be a first option when choosing jewelry. Accessorized jewelry will always be my number one top pick.

I came home and found 3 cute Beaded Chic bracelets on my dresser by Avon, from my mother. Of course i love the sea life blue bracelet because blue is my favorite color. I was excited, i haven't had a bracelet that had so much meaning to it as oppose to this one. The bracelet is inexpensive and you get to save 70% off. “Fax-stone and silver-tone beads on stretch bracelet. One size fits most." With 6 different colors, ladies be sure to check this bracelet out and dnot miss out on Avon’s Beaded chic bracelet sale.

Ballerina Flats/Miley cyrus

Lately I have noticed that so many girls on campus have been wearing Ballerina flats. According to my girlfriends and i these shoes by far has been this season’s best trend. I am the kind of girl that loves to wear heels. I cannot stress it enough that i hate to wear sneakers on a daily basis unless of course if i am going for a run. Don't you hate wearing sneakers after an expensive pedicure?

This trending ballerina flat has made it big in South Florida for the ladies that made it a habit to walk comfortably and fashionably in style at low price. Many celebrities that we look up to for style inspiration like Zooey Deschanel, Kourtney Kardashian,  Rihanna, and Taylor swift are sporting these wonder flats. If you’re looking to catch a  cutie's attention ladies...the  sneakers are probably not going to make the cut. As far as for heels, if your in need of a tragic speed walk, the buckling of your stilettos and the cramping in your feet will get you far but in a non-passive painful manner.So move your heels aside the closet and throw your sneakers out the window and get your  flats because they are here to stay! Here is a picture of Miley Cyrus sporting a brand of Van ballerina flats.
You can click the image below to buy Miley's exact shoes for just $44.99 at http://rstyle.me/ad/e2a2gsvw.
