I don’t know if y’all saw these floating over the  net yet but Ms. Jackson is DEFINITELY doing her thing.  I don’t think she’s ever had a better hairstyle (well, besides Pleasure Principle which I’m currently seeing all over now and plus I have bang envy).  I’m in love with this makeup too.  Maybe someone can do a Face Of The Day based on this?


Orange is a fabulous color that works on pretty much any skin tone.  It’s another way to say “HELLO WORLD, I’M HERE AND I’M HOT!” and it’s becoming a favorite of mine.  Maybe because I’m livening up my living room with the color or maybe because I got the greatest deal on my $33 Easter dress (yes, I still get them) or maybe because I saw Miss Zoe Saldana killing the color in the most beautiful dress recently…but orange is at the forefront of my mind.  Take a gander at me and Zoe rocking our orange dresses and then take a looksee at a few orange stunners that I found online. 

Below are dresses by Calvin Klein, Calvin Klein again LOL, and  London Times respectively.  Enjoy!   Are you feeling orange?

I loves me some Rachel Roy. Now it wasn’t always a love affair as she has definitely made some questionable fashion choices (Hammer pants, Dame Dash…lol) but no matter what risks she takes, she is always polished and lady-like. Her love of dresses and her feminine flair mixed with clean yet urban details really sets her apart and makes her tops on my style mavens’ list. I actually plan to feature her soon as a Top Shelf Chick, something I’d like to do more of on this blog.

Back to the subject, Rachel now has a line of items that I can actually afford. To me the accessories are the stars of the show, mainly the shoes and the bags. Here are some that I thought we’d all enjoy.

A. Wanderlust Clutch, $69
B. Woven Python Tote, $129
C. Purfe Hobo, $89
Oh, dude…all these bags are 20% off the listed prices right now!

D. Nadia Sandal, $109  I really want this one badly.
E. Sloane Wedge, $76
F. Elise Peep Toe, $109
