WEDDING BLISS: Jessica Biel & Justin Timberlake

Mazol Tov to Mr. & Mrs. Timberlake! Over the weekend news broke that the cutesy couple tied the knot in a intimate ceremony in Italy. And of course People has the exclusive on the super romantic nuptials. We hear that Biel wore a custom Giambattista Valli haute couture gown–and it was very, very pink, of course while her Hubby, Justin wore a Tom Ford tux he helped design. Not huge fan of the pink wedding gown on the cover but I'm sure once I pick up my copy of the magazine it will steal my heart. Justin is giving me Tom Cruise right now, lol. Anyway, congrats to Jessica & Justin!  
....maybe I should be in Italy, seems like the place to find/be in love. lol!

Haute Friday: KimYe' Dinner Date in Rome, Italy

Happy Haute Friday!

I have no idea why I'm full of so much energy this Friday, but I'am! Super grateful for another productive week in the books and feeling like this weekend is going to be relaxing. After seeing Elle Varner perform last night (she's amazin!) live at a beauty concert series, put me in a great mood. Anyway, with Kim's birthday coming up it looks like the cutesy couple took their love affair to none other than Rome, Italy! Kimye' has stolen my heart and I'm not ashamed to say it, lol. Kim looks chic and effortless while her Beau, Kanye kept casual in his signature leather trousers and gold chains tucked under his grey t-shirt with his blazer to match. Are you a fan of this stylish couple?!
Have an amazing weekend filled with memories to last you a lifetime!

Big Sean for GQ Magazine's "The Coatless Winter"

Well hello there...Big Sean! Fella's I'm going to need to take notes *right now*. G.O.O.D Music rapper Big Sean shows you how to wear Fall trends for GQ's "The Coatless Winter". I'm a fan of the "coatless winter" idea, although I'm a winter baby....and love to wear a good thigh-high boot I also enjoy layering a blazer with a good scarf and a collared shirt opposed to throwing on a coat.  
Check out some photo's from the spread below:

A great staple for men this season is the perfect blazer you can dress up or down.

Obsessed: Kenzo

Lately, I've been SUPER obsessed with pairing a sweatshirt with some skinny's and throw on some heels and calling it a day. I wish I took more pictures so I could show you but, it's a comfortable yet chic look that I'm loving these days. Sometimes you have to switch it up, you know? My latest craving is Kenzo, and although it's a pretty penny to spend on a sweatshirt/sweater I hear the quality is amazing. With Fall makes it debut, I'm sure a sweatshirt/sweater will be an essential this season, check out some of my favorite looks below:
How gorgeous does Fashion Blogger, Claire look?!

Rihanna is a huge fan of Kenzo....can you blame her? :)

Our FLOTUS was seated in the audience of for the second presidential debate looking amazing in her "pink" Michael Kors sheath dress and neon jacket to match. She accessorized her look with a single strand of pearls around her neck and pearl studs to match. Are you loving her look?
