There is no other fashion rule more outdated than “don’t mix your prints”! This spring, print clashing like a stylish pro is easy when you use a beautiful family of colors and prints like black and white gingham and florals or black stripes with a red base of florals
African print fabric has proven to be so versatile that it is now recognized on the global fashion scene and will be seen locally in street style and contemporary fashion. African print fabric has metamorphosed from cultural attire to a glamorous wardrobe must-have and right now the spotlight is on Africa.
OUTTAKES FROM BEHIND THE SCENES @CURBMARKET901
I cordially invite all of you out to Tour: African Print Fashion Now! Exhibit with me at Memphis Brooks Museum of Art today at 6:30P. I will casually guide you through this amazing story of Taste, Globalization, and Style and introduce you to the dynamic traditions of African dress featuring colorful, boldly patterned printed cloth. Just in case you are pondering what to wear, I have a few style inspirations for you.
I hope to see you all there!!!! Be ready for boomerangs and a stylish night out at the museum.
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw my fitting room performances while shopping last week. Local bloggers like myself, my friend Kim, and new gal pal Elizabeth and many others were invited out to the TangerStyle VIPreview Party. The team at Tangers Outlet in Southaven for the second year always show us bloggers a really great time. We were invited to Tanger Outlets in Southaven to preview the newest trends and styles for spring. They served us with style as we were offered hors d’oeuvres, cupcakes, wine, and gift cards to shop the spring looks.
I love shopping just like any other woman. However, I have some real life goals that require me to be more intentional with spending. Outlet mall shopping is perfect because I can shop with brands like H&M, JCrew, and Banana Republic both for Amira and I. What I love about going to VIPreview parties are the gifts and coupons, we were given coupons for an extra 25% off at all participating stores along with a $150 gift card. Yes to savings right?!
The team gave us a very detailed overview of all of the goodies and coupons in our swag bags, the offers in participating stores plus a couple of fun little styling contests and shopping prizes before we headed out on our shopping spree.
I won't tell you that I pretty much spent all of my money in one place and on Amira. I am a mom indeed. I couldn't resist buying everything for Amira in H&M since they have the cutest girl clothes that fit my skinny and long leg ballerina. I did splurge on myself a bit by buying a pieces to enter the styling contest. I didn't win but you will see more of my looks very soon.
We had so much fun!!!! It was great to have an evening to myself shopping, seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Tanger Outlet Southaven knows how to roll out the carpet for bloggers and offers great looks and pieces at very reasonable prices. Now through April 15th, the TangerStyle event has a special event just for you. You can enjoy 25% off savings by signing up here.
THANK YOU SO MUCH #TANGERSHV FOR HAVING ME, IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!
Green has not always been my go to color when it comes to my personal style. To be honest, I only own a couple of pieces. After browsing Pinterest for home decor ideas, I was totally inspired to pull out my mom's Express dress from 1997 that I "borrowed" and had altered to restyle it from a couple of home interior inspirations with green. Yes, green!
Inspiration is all around and I keep my eyes peeled to absorb it. I noticed while getting ideas of how to decorate a seemingly difficult green couch that it is rather easy. Hardware, complimentary colors, metallic shades like silver and gold, with accents from hardwood floors makes green look luxurious and rich. So, I styled my look with a deep chocolate brown belt, big hoops with brown and gold to reference hardwood floors and metallic accents and created an entire look.
