Fashion Friday: Corset 

Hey Beautiful People,

Happy Friday!!! 

The corset belt is one of the current fashion trend for the spring.  The corset dates back to the 1800s and during that time corsets were used for  corset is agarment worn to hold and train the torso into a desired shape foraesthetic or medical purposes. Now corsets are seen as a fun accessory that are wore on top of the sweatshirt, dress, pantsuit or shirts, etc. I love the corset look because it makes you feel sexy and takes your look up a notch. It is so easy to pair the look with every garment. I decided to take on the corset look and create these simple looks for everyday living. 







 Let me know which one would you rock? 

Until next time 
Love, Peace and Fashion

BLACK HISTORY MONTH 

February is known as Black History Month. Black History Month started off as Negro week  in 1926. When historian Carter G. Woodson and the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History announced the second week of February to be “Negro History Week. This week was chosen because it coincided with the birthday of Abraham Lincoln on February 12 and of Frederick Douglass on February 14, both of which dates Black communities had celebrated together since the late 19th century. 

Then in 1969, the expansion of Black History week to month was first proposed by the leaders of the Black United Students at Kent State University. The first celebration of the Black History Month took place at Kent State one year later. In 1976 as part of the United States Bicentennial, the informal expansion of Negro History Week to Black History Month was officially recognized by the U.S. 
 I wanted to commerate this month but I didn’t know how. Then, the lightbulb went went off in my head.  Lets celebrate this month by doing a fashion flatlay and styling African print clothing.  When it comes to African print, there are different types of fabrics such as Ankara to Kente. So here it goes. 

Well beautiful people, let me know in the comment section which one do you like the most. 

Happy Black History Month ✊✊✊✊✊✊✊✊✊

Fashion Friday: Flower Lapel Pins

Hey Beautiful People,

Happy Friday!! I hope all is well with you gals and guys on this beautiful day! So today is my favorite day of the week. Its Fashion Friday!! Yayyy!! I love today’s Fashion Friday topic because its fashion trend that has been around for a while but has definitely been modernized. Ladies, unfortunate today blog is for the fellas. This fashion trend is the Lapel Pin! Although, the lapel pins have been around since the late 1960s and early 1970s, men would generally wore these pins as an ornamental or to be associated with an affiliation or cause.

However, recently more men are wearing these pins as a fashion statement to add that extra detail to an ensemble.  Lapel Pin are generally small pins worn on clothing, often worn on the lapel of a jacket. There are different types and styles of lapel pins but today will be focusing on the flower lapel pin or boutonniere.  Boutonniere have been used to indicate everything from wealth to military affiliation.  Generally, you’d see these pins being worn at weddings or proms but this is no longer the case. You will see men wearing these pins on a day to day whether for work, formal or casual parties,etc. Now if you don’t know what flower lapel pins are, I included some pictures for you gals and guys down below.

Now I haven’t really noticed this trend until last year when I saw several men wearing them on their social media feed and my brother sent me a picture of a look that consisted of blazer with a floral shirt and a flower lapel pin. I fell in love with the look so  I set out to find out more these amazing fashion statement piece. Lapel pins are worn on the left side of a jacket or coat. Its believed to gives it a romantic flair being that the heart is on the same side.

Lapel flower pin come in all different shapes, sizes, colors and materials suited for any occasion or individual. Now when it comes down to selecting the right size for your lapel flower, the color of the pin should compliment the rest of your outfit but more importantly the occasion. Also, you might want to be mindful of the material of the jacket because these pins will leave holes. So always check the material first.   Now if you choose to enhance your wardrobe, feel free to select complementary colors that will take your dapperness to another level. Now if you don’t know how to do that refer to a color wheel or go with something neutral, like off white.  Remember, the pin adds a dapperness to your ensemble, so be mindful of that!
