Street Style look Elevated for the Black Celebrity Giving Award Ceremony

20140703-220124-79284627.jpg
Hey Loves,
It seems like yesterday that I was introduced to the lovely Miss Jasmine Crowe at an award show honoring Toya Wright for her philanthropic work in the Black Community. I can’t believe it was a year ago I vowed to work with Jasmine in giving of my time and services as a parent liaison or mental health counselor to children. Unfortunately, I had just started my PhD classes and my time was limited with my other volunteer activities with the American Red Cross and Dress for Success Atlanta. However as time would have it Jasmine is hosting her award show again and this time she is honoring Tamika Raymond and other philanthropists and organizations for their diligent work and support in our community.

Unfortunately I missed out on most of the award ceremony (flat tire) but I still showed up and better yet I now have my schedule worked out wherein I can start giving back to our community and pouring into children who can and will grow up to be like me or achieve more than me.

20140704-042904-16144865.jpg Well if haven’t learned anything the most valuable thing I pride myself on knowing is Philanthropy~the art of giving back and pouring into others is a blessing! a feeling of accomplishment in itself.
At the end of the night I was glad I came out to support and solidify my promise to give back.

The Healthy Heart Series

image

Hey Loves!
With so many people focusing on health and fitness I wanted to take it a step further and focus on the “heart”….yes the major muscular organ which pumps blood throughout the blood vessels to various parts of our body.  To do so I teamed up with Heart Health coach and relationship expert “Sharon Reid” to network and teach heart health.

image

To kick off the first event we focused on the heart as an organ of spiritual, emotional and physical aspects and how to protect or guard your heart because the three parts can be affected by heart disease and other ailments.

image

The spiritual heart is non physical it is your inner treasure the center of your feelings, which is located to the right side of your physical heart.

image

The emotional heart is the deep emotions that you feel for or towards others. It is the center of wmotion and is located to the left of the physical heart. Being receptive to your emotional state it experience s many feelings from joy to grief. So any kind of disappointment,  death of a loved one, rejection is stressful on the emotional heart.

image

The physical heart is our actual heart which pumps the blood throughout our body and is affected by every spiritual or emotional feelings that the body experiences. When you are excited the heartbeat pumps more forcefully and when we are stressed or disappointed it wreaks havoc by stunning the heart with extreme shock. 

image

We ought to take care of our hearts by ensuring that we are balancing our emotions, eating healthy and exercising.  It takes maintenance to keep your heart healthy.  A happy heart keeps you happy and keeps your heart healthy.

How healthy is your heart?

A red dress gala…..Who are these people???
Hey Loves,
A few weeks ago I was invited  by a member of Classy Living Society to a red dress gala being a philanthropist and supportive of women, I glanced at the website, saw the mission statement and bought my ticket.  I picked up a cute red dress and waited patiently for the big day.  Being a loner i showed up at the gala and was In awe at all the beautiful women nicely dressed in their red dresses from gowns to minis. So many women yet I did not see two of the same dresses.

One day multiple events in a single dress…..

20140401-074649.jpg On one particular Saturday I realized I had quite a few events in which I was expected to show up….that’s a bit much but Its my best to be in demand and stay visible in this lucrative market. So after being sick all week I dragged myself out and about. The best part was being able to drag my friend Danetta with me all day. For this event filled day with the weather breaking into beautiful Spring weather I wore a Peter Pan style collar dress made of jersey material in a soft grey hue with an off white collar. To dress it up I added a wide gold metal belt , paired it with a safe black pumps and added a colorful golf bag for a splash of color….

20140401-075439.jpg At church: women’s ministry brunch, got some goodies and some nuggets to help in my spiritual walk

20140401-080146.jpg The 2nd event: the grand opening of FLYCHIXboutique in the Edgewood area of Atlanta. Spotted with Danetta and Ebonie Ward (boutique owner) received a bag of goodies and just had to purchase a new black skirt. >

My last event included shoe shopping from Platform Addicts by Khadijiha Rowe as if I need another pair of pink shoes but who can resist a sale? To justify this is a blush pump it is not pink and its a bit lighter than the others as well as its suede while the others are patent leather.

20140401-100548.jpg

What I can say is I had a blast……. After being sick all week it was great to be out and finally enjoy a meal. Though having multiple events in one day can be extremely exhausting, I have learned that being comfortable in your attire will definitely make your events more pleasant So when you are dressed for any event make sure you are comfortably dressed so that you can make the most out of your event. Until next time just remember you can transform a simple outfit with your accessories add a belt or fashion jewelry

Thanks for stopping by

Always Red Carpet Ready!!!

Hey Loves,

Since living below the Mason-Dixon Line I sometimes find it difficult to get dressed because when I show up somewhere I look different from others, everybody is dressed in trends, so much so that they all look alike …they all wear the same hair, same hairstyles, same dress different color and same shoes. It’s as if I can just look at them and spot which boutiques they shopped for the events. There is nothing wrong with being trendy but a personal touch or an edge of creativity adds flavor to any style.

20140307-055927.jpg A woman’s outfit should be 75% accessories and 25% clothing…. Go figure I spend more time picking out my accessories than my clothing. On my way to network a Bridal Show at Elaborate Events in Duluth, GA after church I’m like I know I’m expected to look normal but what is normal…..I have to feed my mood and stress accordingly to be comfortable.. with such thoughts I paired a red zippered blazer with a mullet style green chiffon dress, complete with red pumps, belt, crystal and silver jewelry. After getting dressed I realize that my simple outfit looks more as if I am dolled up for more than networking with Brides.
The simple red carpet ready ensemble:
Fire Red zippered blazer – GAP
Green mullet dress- Forever 21
Red leather belt –Zara woman
Crystal jewelry –Fairytale by Traci Lynn Fashion Jewelry
Anklet/foot jewelry-Barefoot by Traci Lynn Fashion Jewelry
Fire Red pumps- Jessica Simpson

20140307-061653.jpg I then realize no matter how simple or inexpensive the outfit…….I will always be Red Carpet Ready and stand out apart from the crowd.

20140307-062038.jpg

20140307-062131.jpg The Barefoot anklet is designed to wear while being barefoot, however I slipped it on with my pumps and it was comfortable to walk around so I just kept it on which gave a twist to my pump and style but I enjoyed the look and of course showcased my barefoot anklet to everyone. I was dressed so simple yet I felt overdressed so I took off my necklace and tossed the matching Zara clutch bag opting to use my blazer pockets for my keys, lip gloss and card. My simple lifestyle Keeps me Red Carpet Ready and turned up for every occasion…….I love my Simple Style!!!
Thanks for stopping by, with your blessings and sharing my fraction of the world.

Catastrophic Wintry Mix in Atlanta

20140212-170622.jpg
Hey Loves,
The most significant ice and snow storm in 20 years is currently taking over the south, freezing temperatures, snow, rain, ice and sleet in a catastrophic wintry mix . In Atlanta at the moment there are over 200,000 people experiencing power outages and semi trapped in their homes. The supermarket and convenience store shelves are empty, schools are closed and the roadways are empty. Everywhere is covered in snow and ice, the brave hearts whom venture out are just rather unsafe because though Atlanta is somewhat prepared with loaner salt trucks and snow mobiles from other States it’s just not enough for Atlanta!!!! After the madness and name blame and pointing fingers during and after the last snow storm the mayor has guarded himself of and from all the political blaming, by declaring it a state of emergency.

20140212-174909.jpg This is all good stay off the roads if you are able to however Georgia is an “At Will State” meaning if you are expected to show up for work then you should try and get there safely as there is no protection against being fired nor being hurt in increment weather. Being a winter baby from the north my vehicle is equipped to handle winter weather I love snow and winter . I love to dress up and go out in the snow…too bad I would be the only one outside as it’s like ghost town.

20140212-180803.jpg

20140212-180955.jpg Its like ghost town, no one going to work, no one at play, about an inch of snow on the ground and it’s raining on and off quite a disturbance in suburbia. This nature girl grabbed her winter wares and headed out doors for a walk to appreciate the beauty of nature before it’s disturbed .

20140212-182037.jpg

20140212-182608.jpg Of course I have my purse I am a lady it’s packed with beautiful jewelry pieces to motivate, inspire and change the lives of people I meet that’s why!!!!
Snowed in catastrophic wintry ensemble :
Navy riding rain boots- Hunter rain gear
Grey leggings –Express
Denim mini skirt- 7 for all mankind
Navy wool printed sweater- French Connection
Pocketed Grey/navy blazer- Ann Taylor Loft
Navy gold stringed beret- Miss Tina
Navy gold stringed glove- Miss Tina
French Navy bean Park Avenue bow bag- Kate Spade
Navy/silver necklace set-Traci Lynn Fashion Jewelry

20140212-184558.jpg love my beret and matching gloves gifted to me by my fashionista bestie from NY, she thought it was so my style, unique and bloggable .

20140212-184851.jpg

20140212-185138.jpg

20140212-185552.jpg

20140212-190647.jpg I am such a lover of navy and grey, contrasted with the snow it’s such a beauty, I could walk for hours however, I have more writing and work to do, so while others are off because they are snowed in, it will be most productive for me and my home based jewelry business where you can purchase beautiful fashion jewelry all year 24 hours a day.

love you all….
🙂 Simply Jyune:-)
