Don't Sweat It

If you've followed my blog for sometime now then you know I'm a dresses, bodycon skirt, crop top kind of gal. A lot of times women my shape don't embrace those kinds of silhouettes but I on the other hand feel most confident in them!! So me wearing sweat pants for this post took some convincing from myself. I love the sporty chic look and it's totally comfortable but I'm pretty sure I'll be back in a dress before ya know it!!

Bleu de Minuit

It's started to feel a lot like Spring!! I must admit my style barely changes through out the seasons. I wear what makes me happy, when it makes me happy. If that means a crop top in the dead of winter then so be it. I just make sure I've got a light shirt over it, a heavy coat, and a fluffy scarf.. Layering 101 lol. 
Dress- ASOS, Shoes- Shoemint, Necklace- F21, Rings- eBay

This dress is so gorgeous and fits perfectly! I love the little mix of black in it but it's not overpowering that lovely blue. Def a transitional piece that can be worn all year long. Those are the kinds of pieces I am now trying to purchase more often just because I'll be able to make them work for me at any point. What are some of your fav transition pieces??

Fashion fades, style is eternal

I think that's one of the most quoted sayings on the blogosphere said by the GREAT and inspirational Yves Saint Laurent. I love watching documentarys just to get insight on who people were in their private lives when no one else was watching. A few years ago I happened to have caught "Yves Saint Laurent: His Life and Times" and became completely captivated by his genius. 

In 2012 creative director of the brand Heidi Silmane decided to drop the Yves off Yves Saint Laurent which caused a complete uproar in the fashion community. While the YSL logo is still intact there is no Saint Laurent without the iconic Yves. If it ain't broke don't fix it and It Ain't Laurent Without Yves.

Little Shopaholic

I was given a great opportunity to pose in some amazing pieces by Elitelush(check them out on Instagram @elitelush)I had such a great time!! The ladies who own the company are AMAZING and really want to cater to all women. They carry sizes small to 3x so no body type is left out!! The clothing feels great on the body and really is flattering. I can't wait to see what they have coming up next but I'm sure it's going to be so HOT!! Visit and let them know Fatima sent ya!!

Devil In A New Dress

Some may think wearing red from head to toe is so déclassé lol but it takes a certain kind of presence to own it!! You guys know I'm all about the glamour and I just adore a fur stole like the ones you see in the classic Hollywood movies with a sexy red lip. There's nothing more fabulous!!

UGH!!! As If!!

So for all of you who might not be as obsessed with this movie I am lol this look was totally inspired by 'Clueless' starring Alicia Silverstone. I just adored her plaid combos with knee highs and Dione played by the beautiful Stacy Dash always had the best accessories!!

Is it just me or does a run in your stockings bring so much more character to your look? I love it!!

And she's baaaacccckk!! Lol okay I know I've said that in the past but I'm here now and this time away has fully celitified that I love this, I love getting glammed up for you all. Thank you for all your comments and emails. 

I've been having an obsession with wearing all black from head to toe. Very Elvira, Morticia Addams esque lol of course with my own spin on it.
