Thrifted Winter Fashion - Burberrys Cape

Hey Diva,
So…here’s another one of my fabulous thrifted frocks…a Burberry’s cape made of 100% lamb’s wool! Ain’t it HAUTE? It dates back to a few years before the company changed their name by dropping the letter "S". I found it at Finders Keepers Consignment in Decatur, GA and once again, I found a keeper.

As you might have noticed, capes are everything right now and I know you’ve seen them all over the fashion runways!  I especially love how each designer has their own take on design aesthetic and fabrication. 



One of my fave capes designs to date is the beautiful white one that singer Solange wore for her wedding a few weeks back. I’m pretty sure you already know the one I’m referencing. Now that was stunning! 

Whatever your preference, I’m pretty sure you can find a cape style that fits your personality…and when you do, go on and release your inner diva!


What do you think of the Cape trend and which is your favorite design?


Until next time.

Ashley Stewart Presents The #LoveYourCurvesTour in Atlanta!


Custom Orange Belted Peplum Blazer by Spoiled Diva by CL Felder

Hey Diva,
I had a total blast at the Ashley Stewart model casting in Atlanta this past week! The model call took place at the store in the Camp Creek district of Atlanta and was part of Ashley Stewart's “love your curves tour”.


The Spoiled Diva

The tour featured other cool fashionable events presented by Ashley Stewart including a Sip and Shop Girls Night Out where attendees were treated to light refreshments, giveaways, special prizes and much more!
 

 The tour culminated with a fashion show where some of the city’s HAUTEST models graced the runway! 

 

The Atlanta leg of the tour was hosted by Atlanta blogger Marie of The Curvy Fashionista and brought out many of Atlanta’s curvy cuties...I can’t wait until the next one!

Faux Leather Peplum Belt by Spoiled Diva

The Spoiled Diva

Hey diva!
I’m really digging this sexy faux leather peplum belt by Spoiled Diva by CL Felder.  The belt instantly adds a little “ump” to my outfit and I especially love the way it accentuates my waist and bum!


I wore it with a “LBD” that I remixed. The dress was simple and rather plain so I took that old frock and turned it into something HAUTE by adding faux fur to the shoulders and a faux leather band to the bottom hem.

The addition of accessories and Spoiled Diva’s peplum belt took it over the top! The belt is available in straight and plus size. Get yours here!

  Until next time.

Thrifted Winter Fashion - Birger Christensen Fur Coat




Coat by Birger Christensen
Hi Diva,
Here it is…my latest consignment score. I found this Birger Christensen coat at Finders Keepers in Decatur, GA and it was indeed a find! Birger Christensen is a luxury brand that started in Coppenhagen a long, long time ago. 


Today, they have a boutique there where they also represent and produce designs for other international designers like Givenchy, Helmut Lang, Valentino, Prada and more! Now...I can’t say that I am a fur connoisseur, but I do know that this coat was just too cute and very well maintained to pass up…and I am so lucky to be the new owner!


My favorite design element is the mix of fur textures…and the two side slits gives it the casual look that I prefer. I love that fact that I can dress it down with distressed boyfriend jeans and a turtle neck.
The styling is timeless, so perhaps I can even pass it on to my daughter someday. 


   Until next time.

New Year, same ol' me!


Hey Diva,
Here we are again… embarking on a brand new year! Some see it as a way to wipe the slate clean and try again. Others vow to make changes in their lives, a popular one being to eliminate things and people that are toxic.

Whatever it is, please know that you need not wait until the “New Year” to get the ball rolling! I took my bud nippers out a long time ago and starting pruning dead branches. It took awhile, but I finally unveiled the happiness, joy, and utter bliss that were there all along…imagine that! 


And…the best part was having loved ones in my circle that celebrated this epiphany right along with me. But wait...not everyone in my circle celebrated with me "for real"... and you know exactly what I mean. You see, the thing about happiness is that those who don't have it will not be able to rejoice with you…and it doesn’t take long to see who they are. So girl, start pruning! 


Unveil the beauty of life that is waiting for YOU! This year, I want you to release YOUR inner diva! But most importantly, prune away those dead branches. After all, certain people come into your life for just a season so don’t feel obligated to hang on once the season has ended and the growth has ceased.  


I sincerely wish you joy, happiness, peace and prosperity in the new year…and always. Until next time.
