Holiday Glam...

Hey loves... 
The Christmas season is here and who's excited? ME!!! I love getting cute and jazzy for functions and parties during the holidays, cause I can pull out the glitzy and glamourous pieces. Sequins and antique gold jewelry have been calling my name and I'm ready to answer!!! lol My sister and I will be attending a party this month and I couldn't think of anything to wear, UNTIL I stumbled across this cute "skater dress". I got it from T.J.Maxx and I'm going to wear it with a cream waist cropped jacket that I found at my favorite store Target... Looking for a chunky heel to go with! 
Gonna take pictures and post later!!! Here I decided to show how to style this printed skater dress!!! Look at the detail of that print... Beautiful!! 

 Thought these Jeffery Campbell "Lita" booties in metallic gold
would glam this dress more!!

Nothing better than to top this look with
a Yves Saint Laurent bag!!! Something other than
black!!! Yet sleek and sexy this 
Hunter Green is...
And this Betsey Johnson ring... For the princess at heart!!! =)
Until next time... Love you!!!

Put in a little more effort...

Hey loves... I came across this interesting post Via: @FABcounsel on Twitter explaining the proven fact that your image effects your success!!! Read what they had to say... It's so true!!!

"People always ask me, “how much can my image really affect my success?” My answer to that is “Look at Rihanna.” Does anyone even remember Rihanna before she dyed her hair black, chopped it off into a stylish bob, chopped it off some more, dyed it red, dyed it brown…..? Do you remember her before her rock & roll outfits, sexy look, and edgy fashion-forward style? Like many people, not really! She had some hits, but her career didn’t take off until the release of “Umbrella,” which is when she was matched with the brilliant stylist who changed her life. Now look at her! She has platinum albums, sold out concerts, sits front row at prestigious fashion shows, and is now collaborating with Armani on a clothing line. I’m not saying that her talent didn’t get her to where she is, but her stylist, Mariel Haenn, definitely helped! She is the mastermind behind many of Rihanna’s red carpet, concert, & everyday looks. Rihanna’s image transformation illustrates the saying, “dress for success.” Portray yourself as the person you want to be. This doesn’t mean don’t be true to yourself. It just means that if you’re an assistant, dress like the supervisor. If you’re the manager, dress like the CEO. Dress & present yourself as the person you aspire to be and that will further remind & drive you to attain your goals. So, put in a little thought, time, effort, & money into your look. It will all be worth it in the end."

Pink Is Out... Dark Is In!!

In the past 2 years I've gone lipstick crazy, but only crazy enough to wear red and pink(my fav. color btw). This summer my sister and I stumbled across MAC's "Rebel" and fell in love with it's creamy texture and rich dark/wine color!!! After a bit of research, I have found 4 great colors that I NEED IN MY LIFE NOW!!!! These are old and new finds that I'm sure you'll love as well... Enjoy!!!  

Bobbi Brown- "Black Maple" and "Black Raspberry" 

M.A.C.- "Yung Rapunxel"

M.A.C.- "Cyber"

Revlon- "Black Cherry"

I would love to go out on a limb and try black but, it's a bit Goth for me and probably wouldn't look as appealing on me either. These aren't really as dark as I want but, I will continue searching in hopes of finding the right color. 


I find it a great antidote... lipstick and mirrors and hairspray.

Plus-size Is Pretty Too...

Fat, or in its softer term Plus-size, has been associated with the word "UGLY" for years. It isn't until recent years that heavy girls have been appreciated for their looks and style. I credit this newfound appreciation for the "FAT" girl to some of the Plus-size industries best. MTV's TJ Gabbi Fresh, Plus-size Model Essie G., and Style Blogger Allison Teng make Plus-size an interesting thing to be. In no way am I saying that style and looks outweigh health, but I am saying make the most of where you are and love you! Each of these ladies in some form has stated or shown that healthy is the way to be. Their outlook on health brings me such joy being that society always posts the "FAT" girl as unhealthy, lazy, and almost good for nothing. In my opinion beauty is more than body and should at first glance be seen with the mind and not the eye. I introduce to some and present to others:

Gabbi Fresh

Essie G.

Allison Teng

Beauty- A combination of qualities that pleases the intellect or moral sense.

MTV "Video Music Awards"

As usual, the VMA's were on point last night.  Green laser effects, smoke, and out comes the one and only Rihanna.  I'd rather not rant on the ensemble she performed in last night, so i'll discuss her red carpet look instead. Experimenting with personal style, she wears everything from Gucci to Versace and is obviously not afraid to break rules. Even if breaking the rules means wearing white after Labor Day. Which I have no problem with anyway so Ri, wear what you want! If you missed the VMA's, here is RiRi's look and a couple of other artists that were in attendance at the show. 

CHRIS BREZZY!!!!!! I've never had a celebrity crush before but... I loves me some Chris!!! I'm loving his sleek gray suit. Side bar: Rita Ora, the detailed shoulder appliqu├ęs are doing it for me. 

And new Pop sensation "One Direction"!!! I so love them!!! They're like a new aged version of The Beetles!!!

Christian Siriano for PAYLESS???

So yea... Christian Siriano for "Payless" is where it's at this Fall!!! I have definitely got to get my feet into at least one pair!!!! And these are they!!! lol... His designs are not new to the Payless brand, so I'm not surprised at all. But in my opinion, he's taken them to another level of grandiose style!!! #LOVE

Soul And Couture... (Music And Fashion)

Hey loves!! My name is Keyondra and I love music and fashion!!  I decided that I'd start this blog and share a bit of my life and interests with you.  Being completely addicted to Instagram, I felt that there was a need to post pictures of things that I love and now write about them.  Since music is my LIFE, I chose to use the name "Soul And Couture" from the mixtape I released a month ago named "Soul Couture"!!
Thought it'd be cute to continue on with that name.  So without further ado I present, Soul And Couture. Enjoy!!!
