I recently had the pleasure of meeting several top black fashion bloggers in Dallas. We united together to express our individual fashion style but more importantly to inspire others to see how powerful we all can be when we stand together. With all that has happened right here at home in the streets of Dallas we wanted to bring something positive back to them. Blogger genius Melody with blingaholic88.com created this amazing opportunity to bring a community of black bloggers together. It was an honor to be asked to be apart and I look forward to the changes this movement creates!
The ladies and their esteemed blogs standing with me in the photo above are as follows. From left to right, Chaunie with www.southernfashiondoll.com, myself, Melody with www.blingaholic88.com, Taryn with www.glamorousversatility.com, Tanika with thealwayzfashionablylate.com, Aquia with thefauxfancy.com and Marrica with www.flauntyourfro.com
Now for the fashion!
I was able to explore a 90’s inspired look with bell sleeved blouse and Levi jeans.
As soon as I laid eyes on this bell sleeved blouse I just had to HAVE IT!
Not just because it took me down memory lane of fashion in the 90’s but because the details added so much character to it. The teardrop detail in the front and back with a thin rope that ties in the back and has extra to hang down my back! OMG! Like really?! There was no way I was leaving this on the hanger! I didn’t stop there I added and 100% authentic lizard skinned belt. These items were discovered and purchased at the Refinery Consignment Boutique in Dallas. The owner Camille is the sweetest ever! Camille does an amazing job at stocking her boutique with one of a kind pieces regardless of your style. When ever you are in the Dallas Design District swing by her boutique!
I do believe that every girl should have a pair of good ole fashioned Levi jeans in her wardrobe! I felt that it was only right to keep the 90’s vibe going and finished my look with my thrifted Levi’s from Haltom Thrift in Fort Worth, Texas. (one of my favorite thrift stores!)
Finishing touches are a pair of sunnies and faux patent leather hand pouch from Forever21 and cheetah heels from Charlotte Russe. I had so much fun putting this outfit together! It has a little piece of my personality in every part!
Now more take aways from the Fashion Power Exchange! Each and every one of these ladies are beautiful and were a pleasure to work with. Make sure you check out their blogs!
