Gimme Some Play

Lately I’ve been really into shopping my closet and getting more use out of the things I already have. I used to be uncomfortable with wearing the same item “too often,” but now I think it’s tres chic to have a few good pieces and wear the heck out of them. It’s also quite fun to come up with new combinations as it makes you fall in love with the items over and over.

While looking through my shoes the other day I came across these animal print booties that I bought 3 or 4 years ago. If memory serves me correctly, I’ve probably worn them less than 5 times. These shoes are super comfy and leopard is one of my favorite prints, so I really should have been pulling them out more often. In any case, it was a must that I put them in rotation and came up with this ensemble to give them some play.

I wanted to tie in the colors in the shoes without being overly matchy, so I paired them with my brown faux leather shorts and this comfy blush knitted sweater. I love mixing lengths as I think it’s an easy way to add dimension to an outfit, so I opted for a lightweight green duster coat which also gave a nice contrast.

Let me first start off by saying I LOVE YOUR CHANNEL!!! It means a lot when women are willing to share their fashion secrets with other women! I want ALL women to feel and look beautiful and i believe that is your goal as well. If chosen i would love to win either the Lace Front because I have never owned one (But I hope it will fit because i have a BIG HEAD..LOL). I would also love to win the handbags. The reason for this is because I have been unable to do a lot of shopping lately. I have two beautiful little girls and I have been really low with funds lately. To make sure they had a good Christmas, I had to sale items out of my closet to a store called Plato’s Closet to assure that they didn’t go lacking! I am happy for whoever wins but it will be nice to have something for me since I haven’t purchased anything in while!!! Thanks for inspiring others with your fashion! ~Tanisha Latrice~

love this outfit omg!
And congrats!!!! I’m so happy for you! Great giveaway! I’d love to win an Entwine Couture Product Pack! (: I’m not happy with my natural hair because it keeps breaking and it I never see growth. I have really really short hair, it’s up to my ear. I’m not able to afford hair products to style my own hair. I’ve become insecure with showing my natural hair. I I don’t know what to do with my hair. I want healthy hair and I really want to see growth and I want to be confident with my “OWN” hair. I don’t think they sell the products you’re giving away where I’m from. I’d be so happy to receive the Entwine Couture Product Pack. I want a new start with my hair. I want to give my hair another to chance instead of hiding it under extensions. Thank you so much! This giveaway will help many girls <3

I’m a recent subscriber and I’ve enjoyed the videos I’ve watched so far. Honestly, I think that all of the prizes are great and would appreciate any one of them. If I had to chose one, it may be the lace wig. I have a really busy schedule and I’m always looking for a way to protect my hair without the use of excessive tension/heat. My 2nd option would either be the purses or gift cards, because it’ll help to build my wardrobe for my new job. Theses are great gifts for anyone that wins and I’m excited for whoever wins!!

Congrats on 600K followers! 🙂

I used to be the same way. I didn’t like repeating clothes especially if I had a picture in it. My problem is that when I shop I out outfits together and after I wear it I’m over it. But Ive learned to get creative with my wardrobe and now I love shopping in my closet.
