Texas girl reporting live from Winter. I’m miserable in these thirty and forty-degree days so I cannot imagine what it must be like up North! I’m a lover of the sun, so when I see it out and still step out to icicles… it’s a problem! Regardless, I have to work and leave the hibernating for the animals of the world, so when Vuliwear reached out and let me take their fly shades for a spin it was just the motivation I needed to step outside.
Winter can be so drab. It gets dark super early and sometimes it’s even dark during the day! I don’t know about you, but I go into total ice queen mode and the perfect accessory for my bougie tendencies are sunglasses. They give you a sort of mysterious aesthetic that simultaneously makes you look like the most important person on the street. I’ve seen some forums recently where people are asking whether it’s okay to wear shades in the Winter and I was a bit surprised that not everybody takes advantage of the glamorous glimmer the sun shows in the Winter months. So! Since my Vuliwear glasses have a classic aviator style with a unique twist, I thought I’d do some browsing and share some inspo for y’all on the best looks to pair with sunglasses this Winter.
I love the trend of the orange camo pants these days and of course, Rih did it better than the rest. Pair this grungy, bulky look with your hater blockers and you can’t be stopped. Some things I like about the Vuliwear sunglasses is that they have earthy tones, playful designs that reflect an insect’s eye and are also super lightweight despite the illusion of the aviator style, so it’s easy to be versatile with them. Most of the other looks are some form or fashion of a French, Chic twist. You’ve got to love a fitted outfit with some standout shades to add some demeanor, talk about classic. I’m thinking Sandy from Grease, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Pretty Woman all in one. Last but not least, my men. You’ve got one look and one look only. Totally kidding, but I am only giving you one source of inspo because how do you not want to resemble Future on the cover of Oyster Magazine? He’s sporting some BlknBlu Vuliwear sunglasses with a dramatic metallic puffer coat. Can you say look at me and stay away at the same d*** time?!
If you’ve been following my blog and/or social media you will have noticed that I have a habit of combining a vintage statement piece with trendy elements. I love being comfortable while looking stylish. I went through my closet and found this vintage key lime green Dior blazer my mom gifted me (well I basically loaned it and never returned it ;-)) so I created an outfit around it.
I love bodysuits because they don’t leave any lines as a tucked in shirt or blouse would. Just make sure the bodysuit has a snap bottom closure otherwise going to the bathroom will be a pain in the a$$.
The model I wore is the dark wash Jodeci, I love the fact that they are really long this was my first time purchasing Fashion Nova Jeans and as a 5’11 tall woman, I was pleasantly surprised. Only negative is that these jeans are really made for Vixens with hips and tiny waist. I had to get used to the tightness around my waist lol.
It is officially the most wonderful time of the year… And arguably the most expensive!!! Christmas time comes with warm, cozy scents, family, joy and gift guides! It can be tough to figure out what to get the fashionista in your life, so we’ve put together a small gift guide with some of the most popular shoes of the season. Seeing that the gift of giving can sometimes become financially stressful I tried out Kim K’s new shopping app, Screenshop, to find some budget-friendly versions to choose from as well.
Last, but not least, the every-day, fur loafers! You can go with Gucci and dish out $995.00 or you can go with the always reliable Target and only reach for $24.99! See these on the likes of both besties, Kendall and Gigi.

Well, Darnell Nicole from WAGS Miami who referred to herself as “A big bitch” was selected as a brand ambassador for the trendy denim brand which expanded its product offering to sweats, bodysuits, jackets, and sweaters. Darnell is definitely one of my favorite WAGS not only because she is tall like myself but also because she lives in her truth, is authentic, remains natural (no plastic surgery) despite all the pressure and embraces her curves. GOOD AMERICAN’s mission statement is “to celebrate curves with clothing designed to flatter and flaunt”. Who better to pick than Darnell? You guys should definitely check out her profile on GOOD AMERICAN. I had no idea she was a dancer. While you’re at it check out her Podcast Dear Darnell.
Now to the event… I follow Darnell on SnapChat and saw that she was coming to Dallas. The pop-up shop will take place tomorrow Friday 11-17-2017 at the Nordstrom in the Galleria Mall in Dallas (13350 Dallas Pkwy, Dallas, TX 75240) from 1:30pm until 2:30pm. Shoppers will enjoy over 300 pieces on the floor and receive styling tips from Co-Founder Emma Grede (@EmmaGrede), Darnell Nicole (@DarnellNicole) and other ladies from the #GoodSquad such as Delilah Belle (@DelilahBelle) and Kim Johansson (@KimJohannson).
