Letoya Luckett – Photo of The Day

Style + Life + Fashion’s Photo of The Day goes to Letoya Luckett. How cute are those lavender sunglasses, hipster hat, and gold accessories.

The lesson learned – a pop of color can transform any look! And don’t forget to have a fun attitude to match.


Beyonce: The Fashion Chameleon – Achieve The Look

It’s no secret that Beyonce is a fashion chameleon. This woman can look glamorous wearing a sequin bodysuit (for shows) to dressing in street style with a hipster hat on Instagram.


To pull off a combination like the one below, the secret is to find a dominate color and select additional pieces within the same color family. Personally, I like eclectic design of the first look, mixing textures and prints. Bey also made this style sexy by cinching the waist with a belt.


The second and third photo gives us a lot of style and personality with garments in the same print (top and shorts) while adding a hat for quick style.  With simple accessories in our wardrobe such as hats, belts, and funky nail designs anyone can achieve this look – fashion is fun!



HARRY KOTLAR and TACORI: Celebrity Emerald Cut Ring Trend

Classic emerald-cuts have become the go-to diamond shape trend over the last few years with the elite! You probably saw the George Clooney’s fiancé Amal Alamuddin’s debut her stunning ring yesterday! And how can anyone forget Beyonce’s Flawless rock and Angelina Jolie’s art deco inspired emerald-cut ring she’s been wearing!

Below are a few styles from HARRY KOTLAR and TACORI on how you can get the same look.



Kelly Rowland and The Caress Fabulista Army

Let’s talk about living life Fabulously – this means enjoying everyday experiences in a fresh new way! For example, if the sun is shining open the windows and inhale the fresh air or stop for two minutes in the afternoon to indulge in a cup of green tea.

Ultimately, that’s the foundation of this site, for girls living in a small town to strive towards their goals; and women to feel beautiful (comfortable) in their own skin. With this very reason, I was excited and honored to join The Caress Fabulista Army.

In a nutshell, the Caress brand selected women across the U.S. to help launch their new campaign while sending new products from their body wash collection. In addition, Kelly Rowland has become this year’s celebrity spokeswoman…and I’m a true fan of Kelly Rowland.

The new Fresh Collection is Juicy Escape, Emerald Rush, and Aqua Sparkle, which is my favorite. So I ask my readers, “How do you live life Fabulously?” What are you doing to make your life, world, or community a fabulous place? I think it’s easy for me to answer…managing this site!

Kate Hudson LBD Collection with Ann Taylor

A little black dress never goes out of style. As you may have heard, actress Kate Hudson has collaborated with Ann Taylor to create the limited edition “Kate Hudson LBD collection,” premiering this April.


You can never have too many little black dresses, and Kate agrees! “It’s one of those things a woman should never be without. I have a whole section in my closet devoted to LBDs!” actress Kate Hudson says of the new collection. Kate has been the face of Ann Taylor since 2012, and this is her second time designing for the store.

The five styles of the collection are designed to fit how women live and are named with the occasion in mind: see Camera Ready, The Romantic and Best Actress below.

The collection will be in stores April 10th and also available on AnnTaylor.com.


This spring, Ann Taylor and Kate Hudson team up to celebrate the ubiquitous LBD with a capsule collection designed by Kate Hudson.

The Kate Hudson LBD collection premieres this April with five limited edition little black dresses designed in partnership with Ann Taylor creative director, Lisa Axelson, each highlighting Kate’s personality and lifestyle.

“I loved working with Lisa Axelson and the design team on these little black dresses,” said Hudson. “We designed them to fit how we all live—so there’s something for every occasion and everyone.”


About the Collection:


THE ROMANTIC – A soft silhouette with a bit of flounce, representing Kate’s spirit, the short and flirty number is cast in a sheer micro-dot fabric trimmed with faux leather for a bit of edge.

CAMERA READY – A super-sexy fit, detailed with cut-outs and sculpted seams, this number is an effortless way to turn every moment into a photo opp.

LONDON LOVE – A sleek dress with revealing sheer insets and a slight fishtail hem, it blends sexy and structure into one statement piece.

BEST ACTRESS – A dramatic off-the-shoulder, floor length column dress with an asymmetric cut that hugs the body, this is the modern-meets-laid-back-meets-super-sexy version of red carpet style.

THE LATE NIGHTER – Emulating another side of Kate’s personality, this made-for-her piece is a bit rock ‘n roll with an open back, with touches of lace for fun and flirt.
