Hmm.. That Dress Looks Familiar

Hello There Classy,

A few months ago I shadowed Action News Jax anchor Erica Bennett and meteorologist Erin Clanahan. In between breaks we would talk about makeup, working out and fashion. Somehow we started discussing fashion in media related jobs.

Day 2 of shadowing with my favorite E's on TV! Erica and Erin 😘😚 #ActionNewsJax

Erin ( the beautiful lady in the middle)  said there’s a dress that all meteorologist and on-air media professionals are obsessed with. After a quick search online I found that statement to be true, there is a dress that media professionals are obsessed with and its only $23 dollars!!!

The Homeyee Women’s Stretch Tunic Pencil Sheath nicknamed ”  The Meterologist Dress ” can be found on Amazon. However, before purchasing clothes and shoes online I always read the reviews. If I’m spending my hard earned money on any product I want to know the good, the bad and even the ugly!! Surprisingly all of the reviews said this was the IT Dress! The style is universal, the fabric is clingy but not too tight and you can chose from an assortment of colors.

So of course I ordered the infamous Meteorologist Dress just to see if it’s all the hype…. Well my friends I LOVE IT. I typically wear a size 2 but the reviews said this dress runs pretty small so I ordered a size 4 and it fits perfectly. Very professional and stylist at the same time. The fabric has some weight to it and would work in your favor if you have a career that is under bright lights. Overall I give this dress an A++ .

Fashion: Danity Love Boutique

Hello There Classy,

So as you know I attend THE BEST historical black university and last month we celebrated homecoming week. My university is known for students being highly fashionable year round but everyone pulls out their best dress for Homecoming. Don’t get me wrong,  Homecoming not only brings out the most fashionable wear but it also brings in a lot of revenue for the university and black business vendors. During this time I thought it would be wonderful to show my support for a black business and luckily I was able to find a boutique owned by FAMU alumna, Lauren Yelder.

This is Lauren in one of her original Danity Love pieces

Danity Love Boutique is based in Atlanta but ships nationally. The boutiques inventory include dresses, accessories and swimwear. Her fashion items have been worn by Nikki Nicole, a host on RHOA( Yes, Real Housewives of Atlanta) Kandi “Koated Nights” and former RHOA Claudia Jordan.

I received two complimentary pieces from her store,  a Moroccan styled romper and a navy PhotoGrid_1447711510901skater dress. Both are two styles that I have saw frequently on Pinterest, you could only imagine my excitement when I saw them on their page. The boutiques Instagram display items that are in stock. Here are original photos from Danity Loves Boutique Instagram Account.

This dress is definitely a party starter!

How stylish is this cobalt blue and white skater dress? This item fit my waist perfectly but the straps were a little long on me so I tied the back together. Overall this is a beautiful dress to wear out on a date or night out on the town. It’s very flirty and versatile. In this photo I decided to color-block with a shocking pink.

The romper was my ultimate favorite piece. I’m usually a size 0-2 so it ran a little bit big on me. I paired it with a waist belt and a navy cami. The lightweight material was wonderful for Florida’s heat and it’s only $40 ! I think I would also like to pair this with some boots for a fall look!

I would suggest handPhotoGrid_1447712157672-washing both items. I washed them on gentle cycle and the threads started falling apart. The blue dress has a white silky material and mesh at the bottom hand-washing will prevent it from unraveling. If it does come apart, you should be able to clean up the excess thread with scissors. Also the blue dress is a little bit see-through. I wore a mini-slip just to be cautious. I will definitely buy from this seller not only because I support Black Businesses but because the items arrived quickly, I told her my concerns on the items being big and she offered me tips on how to make them work for me and her customer service skills were excellent. So make sure you shop this celebrity favorite, Danity Love Boutique.

We’ve made it to July! What a wonderful month it’s starting out to be. The weather has calm down a bit in Tallahassee, classes are going well and I’m visiting my family at least three times this month alone. Today’s ensemble was inspired by the chic, Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn left Patricia Field’s Soho store Tuesday afternoon looking oh so fabulous in a structured black blazer,sparkly black and grey undershirt and a multicolored sequin mini. According to The Herald Sun , Caitlyn could have been styled by Patricia Soho who is also the stylist behind Sex and the City. Either way, she looks Glamorous .

6/30/15 Outfit Of the Day #OOTD

Hello There Classy,

I hope you had a terrific Tuesday. My style choice was inspired by a quote on Pinterest ” Some days you have to create your own sunshine.” due to the stormy weather in Tallahassee lately. Although the weather was in an ugly mood I was not, thanks to the perfect amaranth colored dress and the help of an umbrella, I was able to attend classes,run errands and visit a friend. I was even lucky enough to take a few photos of today’s ensemble shortly after the storm passed.
