Are you there God? It's me, Caribbean Cowgirl.If you don't know this reference(Google Judy Blume), kindly refrain from clicking the 'read more' link lol. I'm kidding by the way. Also, I would like to add that God would know me as Caribbean Cowgirl as an all knowing being and presence I am quite sure my blog is on the radar. Speaking of which, "God, can you tell your friends to check out my blog and tell their friends as well? Amen" *takes a sigh of relief.
Coco Chanel is known as one of the best to ever do it in the fashion world. By 'it' I mean exude confidence, set the trends, all during the turn of the century when women were preferred to be seen rather than heard. I initially planned on just starting this post with one of her famous quotes, however I was swept up in her back story and decided to share with my readers. Born into poverty, Gabrielle Bonhuer ('Coco') Chanel, was given up by her father once her mother passed to be raised in a orphanage.From shop girl, cafe' singer, and mingler with the well-to-do, she received financial backing to open her first shop.Initially selling sportswear 1913, she made luxury her niche. Deviating from the petticoats and corsets of the time, she revolutionized women's wear with such items as the woman's 'suit' and the LBD(little black dress) .Her story really resonated with me for some reason. I think...wait I know it is her humble beginnings that make her that more relatable to a poor woman like me lol. She didn't just take the hand she was dealt by life, she shuffled the deck and made it work to her advantage. "My life didn't please me, so I created my life"--one of her most famous quotes and testament to her life.Her rags to expensive rags and riches life serves as an inspiration to many. Coco Chanel, I salute you!

Soooo.... I am excited to announce I have teamed up with a fabulous boutique to bring you today's post! Haus of Fash is an online boutique who specializes in affordable pieces that are not only trendy but extremely versatile. The boutique owner, Arvion prides herself selling garments that are sexy, but classy at the same time. She strives to bring the "new classy" and "new chic" to all the lovely ladies who aspire to be fashionable, fly, and fierce.
The pieces I am wearing from Haus of Fash are the nude body suit ($35) and nude midi skirt($29).For my first look , I decided to go with a more monochromatic look and pair the two. My gold plated belt added just a bit of dimension and accentuated my waist. As I am not a curvy girl,the belt helps add to the illusion that I have a few. The top is totally amazing! With Spring around the corner and sheer being so in style as well as bodysuits, this piece is a virtual must-have of the season! In addition to pairing the top with the skirt, I also tried a more casual approach by matching it with my 'step-mom' jeans and my pom pom pumps. This looks can go from day to night with right accessories and the top will definitely be an eye-grabber. The skirt, which is also versatile is different from the average midi as this one comes lined. So you can say goodbye to panty lines and unsightly bulges. The skirt pulled double -duty as I also styled it as a tube dress for a more fun street style look perfect for going to a concert...including Beyoncé and Rihanna.
