Cabi x Fashion Show



Hello Fashionistas! My first blog post since Spring has sprung 😊
How is the weather treating you? I'm trying not to complain but it's already miserably hot here in the south. Hence my reason for not blogging, the heat has fried my brain, lol. 

I had the opportunity to attend a fashion show for Cabi at their outlet store in Pooler this past Thursday. If it's so miserably hot, why am I wearing an all-back ensemble at the Cabi fashion show - except for my cross-body bag that provided a pop of color - you might wonder? I'll tell you, the fabric is the lightest, easy-breeziest material that has touched my skin in quite a long time. At first, I tried on a different color, but unfortunately, it was not my size and it was the last one in that particular design in the store. These jumpsuits are haute, and are selling out fast. So, when I stopped in earlier at Cabi, prior to the fashion show Thursday, I snagged this jumpsuit (after trying on the other style that didn't fit) and it was perfection! The last time I wore a jumpsuit, I was a child, and not for lack of trying. I just could not find one that fit the way I wanted it to.

The fashion show was stylish and highlighted some of the trends for this Spring and Summer. The pastel jeans were my faves! Some of the models were wearing Cole Haan shoes and sneakers; I was very surprised by the sneakers. Usually I'm not a sneaker girl but I liked the chicness of both styles especially the hi-top design.
To top the night off, everything in the store was 50% off from 6PM - 9PM.

Angry Elephant Sweatshirt x Nanette Lepore Bag




Hello Fashionistas!
Hope this week has been good to you. It's almost Friday 😄 so hang in there. A quick post today of a recent photo shoot with Erica at SCAD (again). Found this gem the other day while visiting their museum and had to return. I love the exposed brick  and outdoor furniture made out of tough plastic (I think). This space is truly unique just like everything else about SCAD. The water feature we stumbled upon was a happy accident and added bonus. We have some behind the scenes antics on my YouTube channel so please check that out.

Valentine's Gift Guide 2017

Valentine's Gift Guide 2017

Valentine's Gift Guide 2017 by ubetterwork featuring a mini handbag


Hello Fashionistas! 
Finally Fri-Yay! Any exciting plans for the weekend? 
In honor of National Wear Red Day & Valentine's Day (Feb.14th, did I really need to mention the date, 😊) I decided red everything for this post. Today, wearing red meant you were showing support for women with heart disease and stroke. I'm sure many of us have felt the impact of a family member or close friend who has suffered from this disease or may not have survived a stroke. Today we honor those women, their memories and legacies. 

Valentine's day is not only a day for lovers, it's also a day to celebrate friendships. Having friends to share life's journey, a kindred spirit is a blessing beyond measure. So, happy galentine's day as well to all the besties. 


Thank you for reading and commenting! Have a wonderful weekend!

Superbowl Attire (LI)

Superbowl Attire (LI)

Superbowl Attire (LI) by ubetterwork featuring Alexander McQueen wrap bracelet

Hello Fashionistas!
Superbowl LI is next Sunday. If you've read my other Superbowl posts, you know I've made no secret about it, I'm not a big fan of football (or sports in general), but I'm a huge fan of fashion. Whenever I go to a game, it's all about the game for the hubster, but it's all about the fashion for me. And, I like to people watch 😄. This post was not as creative as my others due to the colors being very similar. I can just imagine the stadium on game day, it's probably going to be a sea of red, silver and white, maybe spurts of black and blue here and there. Are you looking forward to the half-time show? Lady Gaga I'm sure will put on a spectacular performance - very theatrical and  fashionable.

Who are you rooting for? The Patriots or Falcons? Or, how about, which colors would you rather... be caught wearing that is?

Check out my post from previous years (herehere & here). The Patriots made it to the Superbowl again, woot woot! 

Thank you for reading and commenting! I truly appreciate it. Have a wonderful weekend!

Summer Must-Haves 2017

Summer Must-Haves 2017



Hi Fashionistas! 
It's almost the middle of the week 😀 so hang in there. I am super-proud of myself for posting my "Summer Must-Haves" so early. Some of you may be thinking, it's a little bit too early to be thinking about Summer. My answer to you is, when you live in the South, with the fluctuating weather that we experience, it could be Spring one day and summer the next as early as March. If you are a Northerner, you are always welcomed to come for a vacay! 

Now, on to the must haves: 
There will be Tinted Sunnies & Bright Bags. Maxi Dresses - a staple in any fashionistas closet - & Boho Bracelets.  Fedoras, which I absolutely love, see here
Neutral Wedges with a bit of fringe for flair. Anklets are making a come-back, or did they ever leave? Pastel Jeans & Crochet Tops/Bottoms. 

How will you be fashionating this upcoming Summer?

Spring Must-Haves 2017

Spring Must-Haves 2017



Hello Fashionistas! It's almost Fri-yay! 
Today I'm featuring the trends that I feel will be popular this upcoming Spring based on what showed on the run-ways. 

There will be Florals. No surprise there. 
Bustiers will be making a come-back and I will be re-styling this little number
Stripes and Culottes. Khakis and Trench Coats. Single Shoulder Cut-Outs and Wordy Tees. Wedges and High Heels. Simple but elegant Loafers. The Ruffles were a pleasant surprise, but I must admit I'm excited to post an upcoming look.

How will you be fashionating this upcoming Spring?

SCAD Inspired (Part II)



Hello Fashionistas
How is your weekend so far? It's Martin Luther King Day tomorrow, so that means the day off for a lot of folks. What will you be doing?

 These are the remainder of the photos from our photo shoot last week at SCAD. My cousin was the creative director and Erica Hawes was the photographer & comedian - see my behind the scenes youtube videos - for the day.

























After all the hard work, we went to eat at a "funky" cafe called The Funky Brunch Cafe. The food was delicious and the best part is, they serve coconut pancakes, yum! 👍

So cold!
