OOTN: ATLANTA MLK WEEKEND
so i captured two of my looks from this past weekend . i am trying to get more into pattern , monochromatic , street wear , & more artistic looks this year . i have done a series of sexy rompers & jumpsuits even though i still love those i am tired of them . i have also gone through simple & classic phase so now its time to twist things up just a little bit & have more fun with fashion this year . so these looks were a start to my vibes for this season of fashion .
i got inspired by grace jones & a little hollywood glam mixed with my own style & preference . i found these pants on bebe's website a long time ago . like literally so long ago & they were just so perfect to me . but after all this time of me trying to put things together with them , i never liked how it turned out . i finally found this bodysuit from pretty little thing & i just knew that i could put these two together . playing off the stripes on the side of the pants & the stripes on the bodysuit , i knew it was an automatic yes for me . i wanted to do a simple bootie so i wore my steve madden ankle boot heel & it is super comfortable & warm so that's a plus !! my makeup was inspired by grace jones and beyonce's why don't you love me video . i took both of those thoughts/ideas & added my own aesthetic & came up with this blue shimmery smokey eye ! hope you all like this look !
this by far is my favorite look , i have ever worn , in my entire life !!!! i was first obsessed with this fur when i see it on cardi b ! then i found it online , didn't order it , saw it again , didn't order it. saw it again right...finally ordered it ! i knew i had to have it , i was just not trusting some of the sites i seen it on . luckily my most trusted brand in chicago , you all should already know Akira , which is one of my favorite go to stores in chicago . they are very inexpensive & has dope quality clothing . this faux fur jacket; i ordered from their website online . i went through so many different ideas as to what to wear under this jacket . i seen so many looks on the different websites that the models were wearing & of course they all had on like blacks , white , reds ... i knew i did not want to really do that . so my best friend stumbled across this suit at topshop & he showed me & i died !! like this is perfect , like epic ! mind you this was supposed to be my new year's eve outfit but the suit did not arrive in time . but topshop was very good with their customer service & did compensate me for my inconvenience so shout out to them ! but this suit was legit perfect , it was so shiny & metallic , i have never worn anything like it . I knew i wanted a simple shoe with a high stiletto heel . so i went to steve madden in Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta & picked up these sling back single strapped heels in black & literally couldn't have asked for a better shoe . my makeup was inspired by amra/amrezy because when i think of makeup , i think of her . she is a bronzed goddess & that is what i was going for . i did a bronze brown smokey eye & i loved how it counteracted with the metallic silver in my outfit . it was different ! so there you have it , i hope you all enjoyed these two looks & discovered some new brands . this year will be lit & i hope to put you all on to more ideas , inspirations , & brands !
