The Power of Color: Complementary

Hello, All My Darling Divas!

We have finally reached the last lookbook of The Power of Color series, and I am actually very sad to see it go. I had such a fantastic time showing you all my color combos, and I hope that you all were as inspired as I was. The last Color combo we are going to talk about is complementary colors which are honestly the first color combo I learned about back in college. It’s a great way to end off the series, and I hope you will love it just as much as the first three lookbook which you can click here, here, and here to check out! Let’s jump in!

Complementary

                                       Colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel

In my world no look is complete unless you have a little cheetah in it! This beautiful pair of animal print booties from Just Fab pairs perfectly with this orange and blue combo! This look is so simple, but packs a colorful punch that I think any Diva will enjoy! 
Look 1
Color Combo ( Orange and Blue)
Sweater: Target
Orange Dress: Fashion to Figure
Booties: JustFab

I was definitly chanelling my inner Belle from Beaty and the Beast with this look! ( lol)  I just wanted something really extra and of course something that showcased the color combo! This skirt should look familiar because it’s my favorite one from Eloquii! They really have some of the best A-line skirts, and come in so many different colors! Brielle and the Beast came out to play today hunny! 

 Look 2 
Color Combo( Red and Green) 
Top: A Dress from Dia&Co
Skirt: Eloquii via Dia&Co

I got this vibrant yellow blazer this past weekend at a thrift store, and I was SO EXCITED that I was able to use it in the last lookbook. It goes so well with these super hot heels from Ashley Stewart, and im not gonna lie I felt so fierce! It’s something about jeans and heels that make me feel
 like a vixen. Is that just me? 

Look 3
Color Combo ( Yellow and Purple)
Top: Rainbow Shops
Blazer: Thrifted
Jeans: Celebrity Pink Via Dia&Co

So that wraps up the last lookbook in The Power of Color series! I had such a blast having this color party with you all, and I hope you all loved it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Color Commentary: Analogous Lookbook

Hello, All My Darling Divas,

Welcome to the third Color Commentary for The Power of Color series happening this month at NoMinusPlus! This week’s lookbook was Analogous, and if you missed that then click here to check it out! This lookbook falls right in line with the others. Delivering a punch of color, and we are here to show you the break down of those looks. So enough of this intro lets begin!

I hope you loved the That’s So Raven Vibes that I am giving you today, and all of the duo looks that I have shown with the Analogous lookbook! Let’s recap.
LOOK 1
 This beautiful color combo is definitely spring and summer-worthy, but can still be rocked during winter and Fall. For this look, I gave you two looks for the two separate pieces. If you want to rock just the kimono, you can pair it with a brown t-shirt, a pair of distressed jeans, and a pair of tall tan boots for a casual look that is perfect for early fall! This orange dress will be a hit for your next night out! Just pair it with gold accessories, a sexy pump, and animal print clutch to compliment the orange and give thelook some texture. 
LOOK 2
This look was actually inspired by the look above, so I gave you some similar styling tips that you are also going to love. This printed tunic top will be great for tucking into a beautiful skirt with a pair of colored pumps to compliment it for a bold and beautiful look for an interview or date night! Looking for a more casual look? Rock the dress with a pair of sneakers, a jean jacket, and backpack for a super laid-back look that is great for mom’s on the go, or a comfortable babe who is hanging out with friends.  
 Look 3 
Shorts can DEFINITELY be rocked during colder months, but it’s all in how you layer it. Style your favorite pair of shorts with a thick pair of tights, an oversized sweater, and tall boots for a super stylish look that is great for pumpkin picking! You know I am pretty much obsessed with creating work looks now, so you can style the blouse and blazer with a pair of light-colored trousers and pumps to have your outfit be the topic of conversation at the water cooler! 
Ladies and Gents that wraps up the third Color Commentary for The Power of Color lookbook Analogous! Next week wraps up this color-tastic series, so you definitely want to come back on Wed and Friday to check out the finale! Are you following me on social media? You should be!

Color Commentary: The Primary Lookbook

Happy Friday All My Darling Diva;s

The 2017 October series The Power of Color started on Wednesday, and I am so excited that you guys are able to see the outfits that I have been working on! If you haven’t checked it out click here! Today’s blog post may not make sense if you haven’t seen it. In past series, I usually would follow up with a behind the scenes video, but this year I decided to switch it up. Every Friday after a Lookbook drops on Wednesday I am going to be coming at you with a Color Commentary. In this video, we will break down what you saw in the Wednesday lookbook, and how to swap out pieces to make the looks more wearable if you not about that color life. So let’s get into the first Color Commentary!

I hope you guys enjoyed the first Color Commentary! I can’t wait for you to see the rest of the looks in this lookbook! We talked about swapping out pieces to make the outfits more wearable, so here is just recap of those tips!

Look 1  
My favorite look of them all! If this casual and cute look doesn’t tickle your fancy, that’s ok! Ditch the turban and the heels, and rock your own hair and a pair of black boots. The red top can replace with a white tee, and you can rock a bold red lip instead.

Look 2 
I think this look will be perfect for making a statement at work, but I totally understand if your style or your work code is more traditional. Just swap out the top for a white button down and a blazer, and a pair of pumps to create a business casual look with a pop of print! 
 
Look 3 
 I think that this look is honestly the most wearable of them all. I would totally rock this for a casual night out, but if the mesh inst your thing feel free to pair it with a black top instead. Keep the cheetah print vibe by styling it with a backpack, and it will complement the yellow pants so well. Rock the look with a pair of sneakers and a black jacket, and you have an edgy inspired look that is great for weekends!

So ladies that wraps up today’s first Color Commentary. Be sure to come back here every Wed this month for a new lookbook in The Power of Color series, and then a Color Commentary ever Fri! I always love to do my October series because it’s when I can get really creative and have fun! I hope you all have enjoyed the first week, and get geared up and ready for the next three! Also be sure to follow me on social media because the color fun will be continuing over there! I love you lots like tater tots, and I will see you next week!

The Power of Color: Primary

Hello, All My Darling Divas!

Happy October! If you have been apart of the NoMinusPlus family for a while, then you would know that every October I do a monthly series. I have done the seven deadly sins, an Icon series, and an element series so far. For this year’s series, I decided that I wanted to play with color, so I present to you all The Power of Color series: A 4 lookbook ode to the color wheel! This year I am doing things a little different. I will explain more, but there will basically be no video. Instead, you can get the looks right here on the blog! So every Wednesday a power of color video drops, and every Friday a story behind the color will drop where I explain each color combo of each lookbook. So shall we begin?

Primary Colors
Art. a color, as red, yellow, or blue, that in mixture yields other colors.
The first color combination that I ever got introduced to was Primary colors. They remind me of primary school, first time things, so I decided it should go first in this series! Can you believe that this is the first time that I realized how good Red, Yellow, and Blue look together!

Look1 
Turban: Gifted
Earrings: ElinPapiForBabi
Tank top: Walmart
Jacket: DebShops
Jeans Marshalls
Shoes: Payless

What I love about primary colors is that they are vibrant and are the basic colors in the color wheel. Every color combo comes from primary colors, and I think that is so powerful. How amazing is it that so many color combos come from just three colors! 
LOOK 2 
 Jacket: Rainbow
Top: Burlington Coat Factory
Skirt: LulaRoe
What I also love about the Primary color palette is that it pairs so well with prints. In this lookbook, I have paired it with stripes, and animal print and both just go with the color combo effortlessly.
So I hope you all have enjoyed the first portion of The Power of Color series! Get ready for a month filled with color prints! Now you gotta be sure to come back every Friday as well for The Color Story: An explanation and a break down of every blog post you will see on Wednesdays. So you still get your Wed and Fri post, it’s just all themed around color! So I love you lots like tater tots, and I will see you on Friday!

Styling My Recent Haul

Happy Friday Darling Divas!
Do you remember last Friday’s Video?( If not feel free to Click Here to Refresh) I showed you a fabulous haul, and I mentioned in that video that I would be styling those pieces at another time. Well ladies and gents, the time has arrived! Today on the blog I am styling the pieces from my recent haul! I had a lot of fun creating random looks, so I think I may start styling the pieces that I haul! So enough of the chit-chat let’s get into the video!

Did you enjoy? I hope so! I love how random and fun this video was! I am already looking forward to my next haul so that I get to do this again! I really do love Fashion, so anytime that I get to create outfits is a good time in my book! Let’s get into the breakdown of the outfits!


Preppy With A Pop
Jacket and Skirt-Target
Top- A scarf tied around my Bra
I don’t consider my style to be preppy at all, but there is something about this skirt that I just love so much! I am a sucker for stripes, so I know that sold me. But the bird print? I am in love with it! I can’t wait to rock this with a crisp white button up, and tie-up flats! 
Oversize my Florals
Jacket- Fashion to Figure ( Via Dia&Co)
Pants- Target
 As soon as I laid eyes on this pair of pants, was in love! They are definitly too big for me, but I could care less! That’s what I love about Fashion. That you can pretty much rock any piece no matter what! If it’s too big, or too small I always love getting creative and finding a Fashion Hack to still rock it! 
90’s Vibes
Bra and Short Set- Rue21
Jacket- DebShops
Jeans- Burlington Coat Factory 
I am a proud 90’s baby, so I was inspired by that tomboy look of that time! Think of Aaliyah’s wardrobe! Usually the pants are alot baggier, but I like the fact that my pants are fitted. I shows a pop of sexy without revealing too much. 
Peplum Princess
Top- Walmart
Skirt and Belt- Fashion to Figure
If it’s a Peplum, it has to go in my closet. I swear I am addicted to anything that has a Peplum detail! Its just such a fun style! When I locked eyes on this skirt I just knew it had to come home with me! I love that I can make this skirt casaul with the chambray blouse. All I have to do is add sneakers and a crossbody bag and I have a look that is great for a date night or brunch! 
So ladies that’s it for today’s video. I hope you enjoyed it just as much as I enjoyed creating it! This concludes this week’s blogpost, but dont worry! I will be right back here next week with 2 brand spanking new videos! I am currently still on Vacay, and will be attending Miami Curves Week tomorrow, so be sure to follow me on social media to check out the event! I have dropped so many OOTD’s of the pieces in this video, so if you want to see how I actually styled them for Vacay, check out my links above! I love you lots like tater tots, thank you for all your support, and I will see you all next week!
