Gallery: The 2014 Met Gala

The 2014 Met Gala has the best red carpet show-stopping dresses in my opinion. So I have been waiting for the juicy sightings. I’m giving you the scoop a little late today because it’s my birthday y’all!!! And the Met Gala went down last night so I missed the blow by blow. I haven’t got much time for a detail analysis of the outfits (just too many darn people showed up at the met Gala! LOL) so I’ll just use monosyllabic phrases and adjectives to say what I feel these red carpet looks. Let’s dig in:

Beyonce in Givenchy – Queen.

Jay Z – on point.

Naomi Campbell in Givenchy – She can do no wrong.

ABY Style: What To Wear To An All White Party

White parties have been all the rave this summer. autumn is slowly kicking in and old coats and cardigans are being unearthed from their hiding places. ..But that does not in any way mean you can’t rock an all white outfit or throw an all white everything party! My last post about the ELLE’s 20th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration, where  almost everyone looked radiant in white has put me in the mood for some hot white fabulousness!

Are you in the mood for a white on white ensemble? Here are a few ideas to get you going.

1. All White Suit

Go literal. Wear white from head to toe. White outfits will always allow you to go bold and bright with your makeup. Don’t miss out on this chance to rock your favourite bold lip colour.

Fabulous all the way!
 
Highlights from her interview courtesy of  COMPLEX:
 
On how she first started her rebellion against the industry“I wanted to make all of the creative artistic decisions but I wasn’t the one paying for it. And they didn’t fully trust me to make them,” she says. “Every decision was a battle. It was exhausting. I wanted to be in a position where not only was the music fully my body of work, but everything thereafter was also my body of work. I knew that meant I had to leave and that I had to struggle.”
On being so ambitious in her own way: “I have a mother who never took no …

What a weekend! It started snowing all over in England and while I struggled miserably to get home in a pair of ballerinas in that unforgiving snow; the celebs were down at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California having some real fun moments. I’m talking about the 55th Annual Grammy Awards baby. Let’s get into the good, the bad and the God forbid of it it all.

Sizzling Sightings: Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Angela Simmons, Emeli Sande, Gabrielle Union and more.

By Posted on 5 1.7K

Having a gracious week loves? Me too. I’ve been uber-busy, it’s not even funny. Like, I barely have enough time to stop and catch a breath. Funny, I live on a schedule but I can barely remember what day it is! I’ve realized that if I wait for that day when I’ll be completely free and relaxed so I can put up my blog posts. then I might never blog again. If you have a ‘busy schedule’ those things you love doing (or SHOULD be doing) should be a part of it. You love to write? Got a passion for painting? Need to be hitting the gym? Need to finish that project you’ve been putting on hold? Include them in your schedule. Life goes by pretty fast and before…Gosh I swear I did not have this inspirational, positive talk-type opening planned at all. It just spieled out.
Anyways, moving on to …

OOTD: Colour Me Yellow

Hiya fashion lovers, been putting off my blog posts for a while now. Way too many things going on. It’s been a busy few last weeks and I feel exhausted. Check my Instagram for more regular updates when I’m too lay to post:((  @msaidyl1.  But I’ve been so wanting to put up this OOTD that I just can’t wait any longer. Coloured suits have been trending like crazy lately. I love bright colours especially yellow so my look is inspired by Solange Knowles and Leigh Lezark who all effortlessly rocked the yellow suit.

*One thing you have to remember when going shopping for a coloured suit is you absolutely should not expect to find a pre-matched pair sitting in the shop and waiting for you. be more open-minded. Buy separates and match them. This option is usually cheaper as it …

Style Diary: Olivia N

Today’s Style Diary feature, Olivia, admits she’s addicted to thrifting. Let’s meet her!
I’m Olivia and I’m just an 18 year old college student ready to move out. Of course I love fashion but reading and shopping are my top hobbies. I also love to run it’s so relaxing. Also I’m an only child and blogging has become my favorite hobby.

Gallery: Beyonce’s Tumblr Shots

By Posted on 2 692

Every time  Beyonce shares some of her personal pics on Tumblr, I get excited. I kind of look forward to them not just because she’s King Queen B, but because I can’t help but notice that her shots have a kind of artistic touch to them. She seems to have a good eye for photography which I am jealous to admit she can to her list of talents, as if they weren’t too many already. To Bey I say, keep  putting them beautiful pics up. I’ll always be here to here to repost and reblog.

Well, there are three trending sunglasses at the moment.
