Fashion on The Corner- Leather and Lace, A Meeting
Hey lovebugs! Its been a while. I sincerely apologize but sometimes life gets in the way of things. But I’m back.
I wanted to talk about the two pieces that I fused together in this pic. This lace peplum dress and cropped leather jacket. I put them together because of their differences. They’re on opposite sides of the spectrum but when placed together they create this synergy.
Don’t be afraid to mix a feminine girly piece with a rough piece. Pair a denim jacket or vest with a dress, flirty skirt or trousers. It gives the outfit dimension, character.
Try it and let me know how it works out.
PS- Yes my hair is green in this pic. Peep the post after this one for details.
Fashion on The Corner- Have a Sheer Moment a la Kelly Roland
Hey honeybuns. Let’s jump right into this. Has everyone seen this photo of Kelly Roland? She looks absolutely amazing. I can’t wait until this weather breaks so I can have a chic sheer moment. No bras allowed, probably just nude nipple covers. I’m in the itty bitty titty committee. We can get away with no bras. But that’s another conversation.
Will you ladies dare to have a sheer moment? I know I def will. And “I like my kisses down low, make me arch my back.” In case you were wondering. Lol, until next post.
Fashion and Beauty Met Natural Hair- Eden BodyWorks’ Style With Eden Event
When I think about Eden BodyWorks, I can hear Biggie Smalls singing “and another one” as in another fab event. About a year ago, Eden BodyWorks launched its new Jojoba Monoi line with a Brunch with Eden series. This year, Eden BodyWorks kicked off its Style with Eden series to announce its new Coconut Oil and Shea Butter infused products at Pranna in NYC.
The event was attended by NYC’s stylistas and natural hair lovers. Bloggers, beauty, fashion and media mavens mingled and gagged over each others hair and accessories while enjoying delicious bites and cocktails. There was also an informational panel in true Eden fashion (always educating on the importance of natural, healthy, beauty practices) that included Felicia Leatherwood, Natural Hair Stylist and Founder of Loving Your Hair with Natural Care, Kela Walker, Style Contributor to Black Enterprise and Founder of Kela’s Kloset, Latisha Daring, Owner and Designer of Asytyn LLC, and Milly Almodovar, Beauty Editor for Cosmo Latina and Founder of Beauty Logic Blog.
The event took place on the first day of Spring but the weather didn’t get the memo. Because it was so cold out, I opted for my trusty black wrap dress, black and gold Cesare Pacoitti boots, bright necklace and a bright lip. I tried to throw spring in there with the lip and necklace although it was clearly winter outside. (rolls eyes extra hard)
Overall, the night was amazing as everyone networked and connected. Click through the pics to see how everything shaped up. As soon as I try the new Coconut Shea products I will do a review. There were new additions like curly puddings in soft and medium hold as well as a co wash, leave in conditioner, and shampoo. The products are slated to hit Walmart stores in the beginning of April.
Check out Eden BodyWorks’ facebook page to see when Style with Eden will hit a city near you. Attending one of their events is so worth it. Until next time lovelies.

Fashion on The Corner- Easing Into Spring
So a few weeks ago the ground hog came out of the hole and said there will be an early spring. I guess that’s what happened. I really don’t understand the whole groundhog situation but anything that even hints at this winter being over is alright in my book. So since spring or spring like weather will arrive in about four weeks, I say we welcome it by incorporating a few bright pieces to our looks.
In September, the spring/summer 2013 runway shows had large amounts of eye popping color. Everything from light pastel hues to bold neons floated down the catwalk. While the temps are still frigid here in NYC one might not feel the need to add color to their everyday wear. I suggest starting small and easing into springish outfits.
The collage above shows a few pieces I think would be perfect to rock now before flowers start to bloom and temps reach the 60s and 70s. Try adding color with a pair of earrings, a new nail polish, a cocktail ring, stackable bangles or place a bright short skirt over your opague tights. Either way you go, you’ll look great and at the very least brighten the mood in the office.
Let me know how you all are preparing for spring. I know I can’t wait.
