It's not Thursday, but I am gonna throw it back like it's 99 and Juvenille and Cash Money is on the track. Well, I am actually throwing it back further than that. My mom is obsessed with Burgundy and she is such a fierce uppity southern lady, so this look is all inspired by her. I am also sharing a bit about myself. I know it sounds weird but I am interviewing myself today. I am learning how important it is to share.
Confession time: I am a bit obsessed with Gucci this year.Can you tell? lol I have done countless posts (well about 4 or 5) inpired by their Spring 2016 line.The collection really speaks to me.It is bold, vibrant, vintage, modern, and some might call it border line granny-chic.The granny-chicness is what I like best about it.
I'm keeping it under wraps all week with Shop Feline.I am wearing one of their solid color head wraps tied in a bow for the ultimate feminine Old Hollywood glam.Shop them here to see all of their fab pieces.You know how much I love Burgundy , so get used to seeing a lot of it this season.
Yellow, it's me *insert roaring laughter. Fall is the most wonderful time of the year for one reason :jackets. I love them! Don't ask me how many I have (about 50 give or take ) . I am a woman obsessed; a trait I got honest from my mom. Thanks Mable lol
Fall is officially here in the Carolinas! Any temperature lower that 69 degrees warrants a light jacket and ''you betta make sure you have on an undershirt before you get sick!" (pretty much the typical southern black mommma ).I know I promised this post by Friday, but I had computer issues. Changing leaves, warm autumn colors ,and holding mugs with two hands while I say "MMMmmmm" are all the things I love about this time of the year.... oh yea did I mention jackets? Olive Khaki has appeared in almost every silhouette this summer and still goes strong into cooler weather. Wine, Bordeaux, Maroon, or formally known as "Burgundy" is definitely the "it" color of the season. The rich hue can pull together many fall looks as either a complimentary color or even in a monochrome look for a bold statement. I just took my braids out and managed to barely get through wash day (natural hair probs), so a hat was definitely not a option more like a requirement. To compliment my olive khaki waterfall jacket, wine colored flats, and chestnut croc-embossed bag I decided to go with a grey kitten ear bowler. As gray can be a neutral, I think it pulled together my look and also makes a statement. I threw on my cat eye glasses just for the "cute and smart factor"....don't judge me.lol
