What’s In Your Bag?

Happy Friday Darling Divas!

I hope you all are getting ready for your fabulous weekend! In today’s blog post we ae going to talk all about bags! Purses, handbags, whatever you may call it, you need some in your wardrobe! When building your perfect wardrobe, accessories are just as important as clothing. Bags are great for holding all your items in a stylish way! So enough of the small talk, let’s get into the video!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope so!  Remember that there are collages for each bag category on Pinterest! Click here to check it out! What bag was your favorite? Comment it down below! Let’s get into the breakdown. 
Everyday Bag
This is going to be the bag that you carry with you every day! It’s super casual, comes in a neutral color to match with any outfit, and carries your life! I prefer satchel bags as my everyday bag because they are very fashionable, and is just big enough to carry all my personal belongings!

List of Everyday Bag Suggestions
Crossbody Bags
Crossbody bags are great for when you are on the go, or if you are traveling! This is a great choice
for keeping all your items close to you so that it doesn’t get stolen! I have so many of these bags because I take a lot of Ubers and public transportation. I want to keep all of my items secure, and this is the best way to do it!

Overnight Bag
A bag like this is great for when you are just going someplace for the night or weekend. It’s lightweight, easy to carry, and will hold just enough stuff for a couple of days. It also can double as a carry on back for vacation! 
List of suggested overnight bags
Clutch
A clutch or evening bag is just the right addition to your formal wear! They can be solid, printed, or blinged out! This is supposed to small so that it doesn’t take attention from your beautiful outfit! It doesn’t hold a lot of items, so you just need the essentials!

Fashion Trends I loved in High School

Hello, All My Darling Divas!

Welcome to another week here on the blog! I hope that you had an amazing Thanksgiving, and spent lots of time eating and loving on your family and friends! I am back today with your Monday blog post! Today we are going back in time. I am going to sharing with you some of my favorite trends from High School. Although it wasn’t that long ago that I graduated from High School( S/O to the Class of 2010), but my style has definitely evolved since then! So let’s get into this flashback video!

Did you enjoy?? I hope so! What year did you graduate High School, and what were your fave fashions to wear? Comment them down below!

Trend Then Printed Leggings 
So I wasn’t able to find a picture of me rocking my leggings from back in the day, but I was able to find two of my fave pairs of leggings from back in the day! I can’t tell you guys how much I loved wearing these! I actually was pretty sad the day I had to throw them out. 
Update: I was able to find a picture of me wearing the leggings! 
Trend Now Printed Pants 
I have since then traded my printed leggings for printed pants! They are a fun way to spice up any look, and I honestly feel like a true Diva whenever I wear them! You have seen me rock printed pants here on the blog, and you will continue to see them here!
Trend Then Accessories Overload
 I loveedd accessories so much back in high school I was always wearing some type of oversized glasses, a billion bracelets, or big earrings. My outfit wouldn’t be complete without at least three accessories, and my 16yr old self would be so upset with me because I barely wear any at all! 

 Trend Now Simple Jewelry
Every once in awhile I break out my jewelry. This may seem like a lot, but this is not as much as I used to wear! I wouldn’t wear all of this on the same day, but I would probably pick one out of these two styles to add some bling to my look! 
Trend Then Major Layering
First of all, let’s talk about how much of a throwback this picture is first of all! Taking photos like this were so popular back in the day! I am located on the top right and as you can see my layering game is strong! My best friend is to the left of me, and her outfit is also another look that I used to rock! Layering short sleeved shirts, over long sleeved ones was everything! 
Trend Now Simple Layering
 All of these outfits are the product of layering! Simple layering can come together to create the best outfits. I did a whole blog post on layering last year. You can click here to check it out if you want! I pretty much use layering now to create illusions of one whole outfit. Before you could clearly see I was layering, but now the way I layer you can’t tell!

 Trend Then: Vest Go with Everything
It was very common that I would be wearing a vest with my outfit. I swore up and down that they went with everything! They kinda do, b
ut then again they don’t 

Trend Now- A Vest Every Once In a While 
I don’t really wear a lot of vests now, but if I do I usually go for a longer one. It fits my shape well, and they add drama to my look. I don’t add then to all my looks like back in the day, but everyone once in a while, for me, is ok! 

 So, ladies, that’s all for today’s blog post! I hope you have enjoyed going down this trip to memory lane with me! Are you following me on social media yet? You should be! Stay connected with me and the blog by clicking the links above! Be sure to check back here Friday at 5 for your next blogpost! I love you lots like tater tots, and I will see you on Friday!

Dia & Co August Try On and Styling Video

Hello All My Darling Divas!

Welcome back to another day here on the blog! I am thrilled to bring you my Dia&Co Styling and Try-On video for August! If you want to check out the unboxing for this video, then click here. Luna styled me again this month, and she blew me away again!  I also made the announcement that I joined the Dia&Co family, and now I am a stylist as well, so order a Dia box and let one the lovely stylist send you a box of goodies! You can click here for my promo code and get your first styling credit ($20) free! (For first-time customers only!) Enough of the chit-chat though let’s get started!

Did you enjoy the video? I hope so! Luna picked some great pieces for me again, and I wish I could have kept it all! Once the coin is better, I’m sure I will keep the whole box! Everything fit pretty well, and I feel like my boxes have been a hit lately! So let’s get into the fun part of this video. The Styling!

Eunishop – Galilea Dress – $45.00

Size: 1X 

Keeping: No

 I had a hard time with this piece! I wanted to keep it soo bad, but I ended up sending it back because I know I won’t get much wear out of it. It fit me beautifully, and I don’t mind a mini dress, but I had to send this one back. If I were keeping it, I would style it with some cute black pumps, a black clutch to match, and some statement silver jewelry to add some bling to this dress. 
Tua Tabitha Top-$35.00
Size- 2X
Keeping: No
I’m sending this back only because it’s too tight over my boobs. I wish I could size up on this one, but I had to send it back because of my coin flow. It’s such a lovely top, and I will probably ask for it again in a future box. I would pair this top with some cuffed boyfriend jeans and some flats for a casual look, and over a black pencil skirt with a patterned clutch for a night out!

Fashion to Figure – Eden Skinny Jean – $46.90

Size: 18

Keeping: Yes

 The jeans you see before you are heaven sent! They fit like a dream, have some stretch, and makes my butt look like a million bucks! I’d be crazy to send these babies back! Since there are so many ways to style jeans, I figured I would style them for fall. I would pair them with a simple olive green cardigan, brown suede booties, and simple tee for the perfect autumn outfit. I have similar pieces to this outfit, so I plan on rocking this exact outfit this fall. 

 

Fashion to Figure – Perla Skirt – $32.90

Size: 2x

Keeping: Yes

 This skirt was made for me! I was already going to buy it, and it ends up in my Dia box. I thin
k that means that I had to buy it now. It’s such a fun print and has incredible stretch. Fashion to Figure is my fave store, so I am a sucker every time I get clothes from them. I would pair this with a flowy top and pumps for a night out, and with a white tank, jean jacket, and sneakers for a fun weekend look.

 

 

Eunishop – Skyla Top – $42.00

Size: 1x

Keeping: No

This top was so comfy and cute! I’m only sending it back because I know I won’t wear it. I would only style this with jeans and sneakers

Ladies that’s all for today’s video! How would you style each item? Let me know in the comments below. If you love the pieces from this unboxing, feel free to request them in your next Dia box.
