I plan on hosting Christmas at my house in the next few years. I wanted to make sure I wore something loose … [Read more...]

2014HolidayPartyDresses

  one // two // three // four  I have no idea why I'm stuck on this trend season, but after buying my dress for the upcoming Christmas party for the Mister job, I've been drawing closer to printed black and white dresses.

Things Change

Houston Fashion Blogger - Brilliance Of B

*Outfit post coming soon! To be honest with you all, it's been a rough two years. A lot has happened. To get you up to speed, I just started a new job this week. That is sort of the reasons why the blog posts have slowed down.  I'm trying to fit a dedicated time to blog during the week so that I will at least have a post once a week. But I'm always here and here. I haven't been working a full-time position in two years and now I'm getting back in the flow of things. Within these two years, I … [Read more...]

4 Things Oprah Tau..

OPRAH

I still can't believe that I was literally that close to Oprah. The Billionaire Oprah. The Oprah who has her own (no pun-intended) TV network, magazine, books, and more. What was so amazing is that seeing her made me realize that she's just like me. Mississippi girl trying to fulfill her dream of what she always knew was inside of her. Friday night was all about Oprah. She shared her life and how she knew she was suppose to be doing more than what her loved ones were. She shared her ups and … [Read more...]

Fall is here and what better way to start the season showcasing what's in style at Houston Galleria. A couple of weeks ago, Vogue, GQ, and The Houston Galleria.

My Experience: NYF..

DSC_0885

You know I'm still not fully recovered from the short time I stayed in NYC. Yesterday, I finally had the chance to rest the whole day (not really because I had to leave for church) and without too many interruptions. I took the time yesterday to also add a few items to my Poshmark closet because now that Fall is here, it's time to clean out these clothes that aren't getting much attention. Anyway, if you weren't following me on Instagram then you totally missed out on the live action during my … [Read more...]
