Jumping into Jumpsuits!!

Are you a lady of black? Black Attire, that is? Several women tend to turn to black as their alternative color for clothing for various reasons. If you are a lady of black, would you like to add a fun, sexy flare to your wardrobe? Well, let me introduce you to the Cold Shoulder Ruffle Jumpsuit from ELOQUII.


Jumpsuits have made a comeback with a vengeance in the last 2 years. I am super excited with all of the different silhouettes that are being incorporated into jumpsuits. Personally, I was not a fan of jumpsuits due to my double big mac patty’s (My Stomach). Most apple-shaped women avoid jumpsuits due to their midsections, but no more. Brands are listening to our cries, ladies. They are giving us fun options to wear. The Cold Shoulder Ruffle Jumpsuit is an example of a fun and flirty piece. The off-shoulder ruffles that cascade down and around the pockets give this jumper a fun and flirty flare.


Keep the look simple with a statement- or tassel-necklace; even add your favorite belt for adding flare.  With the blank palette of the jumper, add a colorful set of pumps or sandals. If you dare, even add printed pumps for an additional kick.












The Cold Shoulder Ruffle Jumpsuit is almost sold out, but here are some options for a fun flare to jumpers.




Ladies, how do you feel about rocking a jumper? If you have not tried a jumper lately, step outside of that box and try something new.


I hope you enjoyed this sample Ladies, until next time.

Stripes in the Work Place - Part 3

Do you have problems maximizing your closet for workfits? Do you find yourself purchasing complete outfits and wearing the same pieces together? Have you mixed and matched items from your own closet lately? Well, today’s work look is about taking something old and mixing in something new.

For something new, Lane Bryant has totally been feeding my stripe addiction. The Lena Striped Belted Trousers was the perfect addition. The blue and white double bar stripes caught my eye. Immediately, I knew what to pair with the the trousers. Tie-neck blouses are starting to be my go-to tops for work. I paired the Lena Striped Belted Trousers with a yellow tie-neck blouse to compliment the double stripes. Adding a pop of color completed this workfit. Accessorizing with wine, burgandy, or bourdeaux gives the look the best balance of color.

Rocking the Lena Striped Belted Trousers will be perfect for your workfit. In addition to this, here are some things to consider when styling your look.

  • If your blouse is busy or have a heavy design, tie and tuck the belt to avoid a distraction.
  • If you are afraid of a wider leg trouser, wear a pump or heeled bootie to elongate the leg.
  • Do not be afraid to try different accent colors to make the look your own.
  • If you like to mix prints together, try the Lena Striped Trousers with a white button blouse with the Dotted & Striped Sweater.

Ladies, how will you incorporate the Lena Striped Belted Trousers into your work looks?

Until next time ladies, enjoy this work sample!

Am I the only one who wishes my workfit will create itself? Well, don't worry because the stripes are to the rescue. Infusing stripes into your workfit would add a classic look instantly. Who doesn't love stripes?


When I saw a striped sweater with polka dots from Lane Bryant, I knew this would be the perfect addition to my workfit looks. Stripes and Polka Dots!!! What more could a girl ask for. Treating the Dotted & Striped Scoop Neck Sweater as a neutral to your work palette could be the answer to your problems. Pick out your favorite slacks or pants for work, throw on your favorite shirt and layer the Dotted & Striped Sweater over to complete your look.

Ladies, let’s take a second….Can you envision the dotted & striped sweater with a yellow, green, pink, or cobalt blue bottom to add a pop of color to your work looks?


I love to be comfortable and colorful at work. I paired the dotted & striped sweater with a yellow tie-neck blouse and my new favorite “Allie” pants from Lane Bryant. To keep the look classic, I paired the ensemble with a pointed toe patent leather pump.


Ladies, how do you see yourself in the dotted & striped sweater?

How to Wear Stripes in the Workplace

Times have changed. What we previously thought about business-wear is no longer the “norm”. Some corporate environments now allow for fashion freedom; While others still hold on to a more conservative vibe.


I remember working in Corporate America and thinking about how much I disliked the dress code. Professional dress in those years were so plain and boring with blues, blacks, greys, and the occasional browns. I remember shopping for items and thinking if it would be appropriate for the workforce. Talk about boring.


Now that we have a license to dress with more freedom, add a little flare to your workfit. Go bold! Try stripes. Yes, Stripes. You can add stripes to your workwear to give you a sense of classic style with a fun flare.


As an educator, I look to be professional and comfortable. When I saw the Striped Double Knit Fit and Flare Dress from Lane Bryant, I knew this would be perfect for work. The fit and flare silhouette has contrasting stripes and strategically placed pockets which makes it the perfect workfit. Throw on your favorite color accessory and heels and you are ready to go. If you are the ultimate fashionista, throw on your favorite cape to make this everyone’s super hero. If you love chic, add your favorite collared shirt and/or your favorite necklace to make this look office-chic.


Wearing stripes in the workplace can be very liberating and motivating on the job.

Until next time ladies, I hope you enjoy add stripes to your workwear.










Unfortunately this dress is currently sold out at Lane Bryant but here are some options to consider.

Happy 2017! The Year to Slay


Happy 2017! It seems weird to say 2017. In 1998 when I graduated from high school, it was crazy to think of a new millennium approaching. It shows how time flies. With the new year is it a new you or is it a new year and same you? Lol. We all want to be a better person whether you achieve it in a courtroom, boardroom, or classroom, you should do it with confidence.

One way of walking in your greatness with confidence is to “Dress for Success” or look the part of the role you are pursuing. I am a believer in speaking positivity into life. Your confidence should start on the inside and shine on the outside. You should start by wearing attire that shows that you're a Boss. As you are preparing for your next big case or next marketing pitch to the board, walk in INSTYLE.

So let’s celebrate new beginnings! Get focused and redirect our attention to our short term goals. Whatever you are dreaming of, do it with confidence. You have all of the tools needed for your success. Let’s make this the best year ever!


Until next time, I hope you enjoyed this sample. Let's stay motivated to make this the best year.

Holiday Jumper with ELOQUII

The holiday season is here and we are in full swing. The Holiday sSeason is a reason to bring out the party dresses and everything that sparkles. Personally, I love glam looks of the Holidays. Not everyone is into the glitz and glam so the Holiday looks may be limited for some. If this is you, I have found the perfect solution to your Holiday needs. The Sweetheart Neckline Jumpsuit with Skirt will definitely get you into the Holiday spirit. The sweetheart neckline of the jumpsuit is gorg with the minor detail of the overlay flap in the corners.

Giving the touch of glam, the jumpsuit has an embedded skirt attached. This detail gives you the illusion of a dress from the back and the element of surprise in the front. Ladies, what is it not to love about the Sweetheart Neckline Jumpsuit with a Skirt?

I would love for you to leave a comment sharing how you will style the Sweetheart Neckline Jumpsuit with a Skirt. I would love to know if you would add a little sparkle to your look or keep the look classic and bare minimal. I can not wait to hear from you.

I paired the Sweetheart Neckline Jumpsuit with a Skirt with a chunky beaded necklace from Aldo and a chain linked rose gold bracelet (similar here). Lately, I have been all about mixing different metals together so I added a minor touch of sparkle with the Slinky Rhinestone Belt and the bronze multi glitter pump Gettout by Steve Madden to complete this minimal Holiday look.

Ladies, you will absolutely love the Sweetheart Neckline Jumpsuit with Skirt. It is a true stunner. I hope you will be inspired and full fabulous this Holiday season.

Until next time Ladies, I hope you enjoyed this little sample.
