Save on Style: Gucci Bombers

Don’t call it a comeback. It feels like the 80’s with all the Gucci I’ve been seeing lately. (Hey Beyoncé, Migos and Princess Blue Ivy) Under the creative leadership of Alessandro Michele, Gucci has a new resurgence and fashionistas everywhere can be seen rocking their hot floral prints. If you love the Gucci floral but don’t want part with the $2250 for a jacket no fear you can rock this stylish spring time look for the low. Charlotte Russe known for their trendy yet affordable clothing has a pretty good dupe for $20. They also offer a tan floral version as well. The jacket also comes in plus sizes (which is…

Just Dupe It….

If you are a make up lover like me then eyeshadow palettes have a special place in your heart. However with constant new releases it can be hard and pricy to get them all unless you have a great dupe. All dupes come from a website called shophush.com which sells affordable make up from popular brands like Milani and L.A. Girl. While no dupe is ever 100%, these affordable options can be a blessing on your wallet while giving you similar colors from the palette you are obsessing over. If you love the Venus palette (the first one) from LimeCrime             you might want to…

Say What??: Metallic Lip Kits for $7!!

“Metallic lips or die!!!” That’s that battle cry of make up enthusiasts everywhere. From companies like Milani, Colourpop, Limecrime and Kylie Kosmetics… This year’s hottest lip trend was metallic colors. Now Colourpop is the most affordable ( $6 a tube) but many make up gurus have expressed that the formulation leaves much to be desired. Lime crime has the pigmented lip perlees duos but the price is a bit high ($30). However fear not, I have found an affordable lip kit that’s offers both a matte lip color along with either sparkle, chroma, or velvet powders to create the perfect metallic lip color for $6.99. The company is called Tattoo…

I’m Obsessing Over…..

  I saw this brand on Dreka Gates (Kevin Gates’ wife) IG account. The company is called AM eyewear and they are based out of Australia. The style is called Capt Jonny and I am indeed in love with them. The company offers a ton of different styles to fit all taste.   They retail for $282. So by the price you can tell that this company makes luxury eyewear. I love their interpretation of tortoise shell. The website is: www.ameyewear.com I might have to talk my husband into letting me buy them. 🙂

Got it for Cheap: Chanel Slides Dupe

Future dropped a song about Gucci flip flops. Givenchy came out with their logo version and then Gucci dropped the floral joints. All Summer 16, you weren’t styling if you didn’t rock a designer slide. OF COURSE, Chanel had to elevate the game with their version of the new fashion staple (new as in mainstream catching on…. Slides were always a fashion staple in the black community….HELLO Adidas and Nike) The Chanel slides feature their signature chains with the logo charm. The slides retail for $700.   Now before you clutch your pearls, I have a cute dupe for you to grab for Summer 17…. Tony Bianco is an Australian…
