B.E.T. Awards 2013 – Best Dressed

Adrienne Bailon, Jordin Sparks, Nicki Minaj, Michelle Williams

Adrienne Bailon, Jordin Sparks, Nicki Minaj, Michelle Williams

Last Sunday, the B.E.T. Awards aired and the red carpet was buzzing with some very interesting fashion choices. There were definitely some people who didn’t look like they put much effort into their looks. Then, we have the ladies who really represented, looking sassy and most definitely classy.

My favorites:

Adrienne Bailon – Rocked a berry colored Michael Costello gown, looking very grecian and goddess-like. I also love how she accessorized with turquoise accents

Jordin Sparks – Wore a Clover Canyon, printed sheath which is perfection for a summer look. Let’s not overlook the understated, but oh-so-necessary hoop earrings (my all-time favorite accessory)

Nicki Minaj – Dazzled in form-fitting, black lace detailed Roberto Cavalli. The look is a little vampy, but so feminine and alluring

Michelle Williams – Exhibited lady-like chic with a strapless layered-ruffle peplum gown, designed by Nicci Hou. The deep “V” and the high split in the front offers a touch of ooh-la-la

Whose look is your favorite?

Re-fresh your wardrobe with ShoeMint

ShoeMint logo

I’m sure you’re all familiar with popular shoe sites such as ShoeDazzle and JustFab, where you take a short style quiz and personalized monthly shoe selections are chosen for you to purchase. I’ve been recently introduced to a new and (in my opinion) improved shoe site, named ShoeMint. The coveted shoe designer, Steve Madden has teamed up with the popular fashionista/actress Rachel Bilson and celebrity stylist, Nicole Chavez, to create this wonderful world of shoe paradise.

ShoeMint keeps their selections exclusive, which is a must if you’re a shoe-lover. To be able to stand out in the crowd with the perfect shoe, it has to be one that hasn’t been seen yet. This site also guarantees “premium materials [and] superior craftsmanship”, free shipping, style tips and they even show you short clips of the shoe “in action” – on a model’s foot.

I will be getting a pair (or 4) of ShoeMint shoes asap! Check out the site [here] and let me know your favs…

Here are my favorites:

Side note: I was in no way compensated by this company. I just love to spread the word on great products!

Time for Spring Dresses!

We can all agree that the time change and more importantly, the weather change has made us a little more excited for this Spring. (Yay!) Now that we officially have Winter behind us, along with those thick sweaters and boots, it’s time to revamp the wardrobe to incorporate some fun dresses.

Personally, I love anything with a print, but color-blocking is also a new option. What do you look for in a dress for Spring? Maxi or short? Strapless or one-shouldered? Check out these Spring dress options and let me know what you think!
