Alexander Wang x HM

awtopawtop5Alexander Wang for HM was by far the most anticipated collaboration of them all. This makes sense seeing that A.Wang is such a sought out designer for cool, edgy clothes. I was invited to the Alexander Wang for HM pre-sale event this past Wednesday in NYC and it was EPIC. I posted a BTS video on my instagram. I’ve been to many pre-sale events in the last several years and I’ve never seen such a turnt up group of shoppers. It was hard core lol.

JoyLovesFashion x Elie Tahari for DesigNation

elietahari

elietahariforkohlselietaharikohlsMonday night was pretty awesome. I attended the 44th Annual BRAG Gala (Black Retail Action) held at the New York Hilton Hotel in midtown. This year BRAG honored Boris Kodjoe and his sleek suit line, World of Alfa. (Swoons). It was a beautiful night, with men and women dressed up fabulously. Obi came with me, so we made it a date night!

For the occasion I decided on this chic-yet-comfortable jumpsuit I received from Elie Tahari’s new line for DesigNation, available at Kohl’s. When I styled my friend and mentor Constance White for morning shows at NBC and Today Show, Elie Tahari was always a brand I reached out to for their polished aesthetic and tailored look. Now Mr. Tahari has offered the same sleek look, this time for Kohl’s! I love this jumpsuit, especially the way I can dress it up or down in a flash. Tonight is was a perfect high/low look. Shop the entire line here (pssss they’re having a sale).

I’m wearing: Elie Tahari for Kohl’s jumpsuit / Zara boots / Khirma Eliazov clutch / Holst + Lee necklace (I also wore this necklace to last year’s BRAG Gala- it’s a fave : ) / Capwell + Co snake bangles / Fossil watch

On my lips: Vino lipliner by MAC! Amazing for Fall : )

On my hair: My new line of hair extensions coming soon (the ones I am wearing are clip ins): CurlSistas Hair!

SHOP THE POST

Oh, and here’s Boris, the man of the evening/aka eye candy:

What are you loving from the Elie Tahari for DesigNation at Kohl’s collection?

How To Wear a Faux Leather Skirt

How To Wear a Faux Leather Skirt

One of my favorite pieces for Fall is leather. It’s magical in the way it adds instant cool factor to any look. Leather is also functional- adding that extra bit of warmth to your layers. Over the last few season I’ve fallen hard for faux leather skirts, leggings and now this awesome bomber jacket. 

Now, you all know I’m always down to try a new brand and I LOVE mixing high-low. You’ll never guess where this look is from- Kmart! The super affordable retailer is having a style moment (they’ve been on my radar since the Nicki Minaj collabo). Kmart via Refinery 29 sent me over some pieces to try and I came up with this chic-meets-edgy look. It’s head-to-toe Kmart and I am loving this look. I’ve already gotten tons of compliments! I’ve tried other faux leather skirts in the past and this one from Jaclyn Smith via Kmart has a really nice fit. I’m wearing a small. This bomber jacket is my new must-have layering piece. It’s super soft and comfy. I’m rocking a medium.

As a chick who loves fashion, I’m always down to mix high and low. It’s great that Kmart has some chic pieces to choose from. Next time you’re there, take a peek! 

******
I’m Wearing: Route 66 bomber jacket / Sofia Sofia Vergara top / Jaclyn Smith faux leather skirt / Sofia Sofia Vergara clutch / Attention booties / Capwell + Co snake bangles / Kenneth Cole bangle + earrings / Fossil watch / 

Hair: from my upcoming line CurlSistas Hair, launching later next week! Human hair, natural textured clip ins and wefted hair. 

How do you like to rock faux or real leather skirts?
