It hasn’t settled in. The entire experience was so surreal. I anticipated having at least three heart attacks, but I feared I might miss Bey’s infamous stanky leg or Hov’s instructional bounce, get your damn hands up, throw your diamonds in the air, etc. So, I dealt calmly with heart palpitations and a flood of emotions and just rocked the hell out with two of my favorite artists–who just happen to make an unstoppable and adorable couple.

I admit it. I have an extreme shoe addiction. And these are the latest shoe trends I’m adding to my closet for spring.

I use to be an avid-hater of mules because they were so old-fashioned, and needless to say, boxes and boxes of the shoes were in my mom’s closet growing up so I wasn’t rushing out to buy any footwear my mom liked. But thanks to some modern updates like sleeker heels, cooler silhouettes and chunky platforms–I’m back on board. I couldn’t think of a better trend to just slip your foot into this spring.  (more…)

From casual to formal, here are my favorite looks this past week:

Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio was spotted on February 24 shopping at Planet Blue in Beverly Hills. Normally I’m not a big fan of overalls, but the trend has emerged this year with more fitted styles that I approve of. Alessandra’s Black Orchid skinny overalls in Die Another Day are just the type of silhouette I’m looking to add to my own wardrobe this spring and summer. She paired the overalls with leopard Vans Van Doren and a white sleeveless eyelet shirt from her own line Ale by Alessandra. (more…)

Here are the items I’m currently obsessing over and will be adding to my collection soon:

My favorite go-to accessories are chunky earrings and rings, but the ear cuff craze has me desperately wanting to try a pair for spring in silver or gold. Ear cuffs can be an edgy, stylish alternative to most earrings because they don’t require you to have pierced ears or to wear those horrid clip-ons. For formal outfits, you can wear sparkly or crystal designs or mix it up with metal styles for more casual looks. Claire’s and other popular fashion retailers like rue21 and Forever 21 have affordable and trendy options.

My favorite looks of the week are from three ladies in the entertainment industry who each have their own distinct style, ranging from retro to bold prints to rocker chic.

DJ and singer-songwriter Solange Knowles was a bit ANTsy when she attended the Spotify pre-Grammy party on Thurday, January 23. I’m bugging out over this turtleneck crop top and skirt duo in black and white. In truth, I can’t tell if they’re cockroaches or ants sprinkled throughout, but I’ve never seen insects look this good!

Hermes1The vast mixed-use development of Buckhead Atlanta is well underway after false starts and many delays. The six-block, 8-acre project at Peachtree and East Paces Ferry roads taken over by Oliver McMillan has been redesigned and gone through a series of name changes (formerly The Streets of Buckhead) to attract Atlanta’s diverse residents. Slated to open this summer, there will be new office spaces, retail shops and residential developments that will transform the area into a walkable, urban destination for residents and companies.

“What we’ve done is gone out for best-in-class restaurateurs around the country,” said Oliver McMillan’s Hunter Richardson, who manages Buckhead Atlanta. “We are excited about the diversity of restaurants that we are attracting…what we love about this is within a five-minute walk, you’ll find 10 restaurants.” (more…)

Following the surprise release of her successful fifth album, “Beyonce,” it’s only fitting I dedicate the first post on my favorite look of the week to Queen Bey. She’s shown amazing style and flair for the past few weeks on her Tumblr. Here are a few of my favorite looks and where you can find some of the items.

While the rest of the world was dealing with cooler temperatures, Beyonce was heating things up in Miami, sporting everything from cropped tees and cutoffs to bustiers and pencil skirts.
