ROCK IT OR KNOCK IT: Jeffrey Campbell "Malice" Shoe

Any Jeffrey Campbell lovers out there?! I'm a huge fan of Jeffrey Campbell for some years now and I must say that I'm loving what I see so far this season. I ran across these Jeffrey Campbell 'Malice' Shoes and I completely fell head over heels for them until I saw what they read across the gold detailing. I'm kind of conservative when it comes to saying and wearing vulgar language, that's just me but how insanely sexy are these shoes? Would you rock it or knock it?! I'm super curious!

"How to Stay Young" According to Girlfriends in God

Everyday I get emails from 'Girlfriends in God' and let me the first person to tell you that after I read their emails my heart feels complete, today especially. As women we go through so much emotionally so it's always good to find ways to get centered especially before the day gets chaotic. What is Girlfriends in God? Well it's a group of women who share daily devotions composed of a bible verse, story of application and a prayer.
I usually share what I read with my own girlfriends but, it seems like a majority of my girlfriends get the emails now, so from time to time we discuss it. Want to know how this relates to a Fashion Blog? Well, I know in this beauty & fashion industry we are always so caught up on "staying in the know/hip" and dare let anyone tell us we are getting old, we will have a major the key is "Staying Young" of course! So, today I'm sharing the "How to Stay Young" email I recieved this morning from my 'Girlfriends in God' hoping that this resignates with some of my readers.  
How to Stay Young

1. Throw out non-essential numbers such as your age, weight and height.
2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down. If you really need a grouch, there are probably family members to fill that need.
3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Just never let the brain idle.
4. Enjoy the simple things. When the children are young - that is all you can afford. When they are in college that is all you can afford. When they are grown, and you are on retirement, that is all you can afford.
5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. Laugh so much that you can be tracked in the store by your distinctive laughter.
6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person that is with us our entire life is ourselves.
7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it is family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies or whatever. Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health. If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9. Don't take guilt trips. Go to the mall, the next county, a foreign country - but not guilt.
10. Tell the people you love how much you love them every chance you get. Never assume they know.
11. Don't worry about things you cannot change or do anything about. Accept them and move on.
12. Read more and dust less.
13. Spend more time with your family and friends and less time working.
14. Whenever possible, life should be a pattern of experiences to savor, not to endure. Recognize these moments now and cherish them.
15. Do not "save" anything. Use your good china and crystal for every special event such as losing a pound, getting the sink unstopped, or the next blossom of flowers you see.
16. Wear your best outfit to the market.
17. Don't save your good perfume for only special occasions. Use it even if you are going shopping or just to the bank.
18. "Someday" and "one of these days" should vanish from your vocabulary. If something is worth seeing, hearing or doing, go and see, hear or do it now.

So if you love me baby this how let me know...don't ever let me go, that's how you let me know baby.
Forever younnnnnng.

It's was just a few weeks ago when "Grown Woman" Mrs.Carter debuted her new song to a crowd in Bercy, Paris. Dare I say I love it!!!!

They love the way I walk
'Cause I walk with a vengeance
And they listen to me when I talk
'Cause I ain’t pretending
It took a while, now I understand
Just where I’m going
I know the world and I know who I am
Bout time I show it
August can't come sooner! #MrsCarterWorldTour


The 90s is back in full swing so have you caught on to the latest trend of 'Overalls' yet? Well don't you worry, I'm here to hip you to the latest trend that celebrities have been trying. I can totally remember owning a few pairs of overalls and rocking them with tank tops and t-shirts with flip flops and sneakers, do you? This Spring/Summer you can expect to see Overalls making a huge comeback especially in leather and of course denim. From fashion to music, the 90s is back and with super mean swag if I might add. Check out a few of my favorite looks below:
