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…)

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.

Beyonce and Jay Z open 2014 Grammys

Just as I predicted in my must-see TV post, 17-time Grammy winner Beyonce opened last night’s show with hip hop mogul Jay Z, singing their hit “Drunk in Love” from Beyonce’s fifth self-entitled studio album. It was quite a steamy duet between the husband and wife power couple, as Beyonce lit up the stage with just a chair and “flashing lights.” Camera action caught Taylor Swift and Sir Paul McCartney jamming along with the crowd as they chanted the popular line from the song–“surfboard.” (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.

More of the best and worst from the Met Gala red carpet.

Of all three gowns, I liked Amber Valetta’s Prada dress the best. I loved the pleating detail on the skirt and the color blocking on the bodice.  The skirt in white rather than black was interesting.  I love that she kept the accessories to a minimum.  I thought Scarlett Johansson’s Dolce & Gabbana gown was fanciful and I loved the gold embroidery and tulle at the bottom, but it wasn’t my favorite look on her.  Christina Ricci allowed the fabric to overwhelm her petite frame in Thakoon.  You can’t really get the full effect of the dress, but I thought the lace and nude underlay was beautiful.

It’s the Oscars of fashion.  No other event puts the biggest names in entertainment and fashion together than the annual Met Gala.  Held in New York to celebrate the opening of the Metropolitan Museum fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute, the Met Gala boasts some of the best red carpet moments.  This year was no exception!  While some really brought their “A” game to the carpet, others left much to be desired.  Overall, the Vogue-sponsored event was pretty impressive.  There were so many beautiful gowns and fashion that I didn’t know where to start.  Here’s the first half of the looks that left me speechless, some for good reasons…others not so much.

Beyonce was truly the belle of the ball in Givenchy.  Even if Beyonce were not my idol, this dress would still be my favorite of the night.  I thought it was the perfect and classy way to show off her post-baby bod.  The sheer and lace detailing along with the purple feathers are just gorgeous!  I loved that she went simple with her makeup and hair and kept the focus on the dress.
