How to Style : Tassel Button Earrings - Collab

"Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness." ~ Oprah Winfrey

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! If you follow me on my social media platforms, then you would know that I collaborated with Lisa, owner of Arli Accessories, to host a giveaway for a free pair of earrings on last month. As a black #GirlBoss, I knew I wanted to support this business in whatever way I could. She makes all of her products by hand and can be customized based on the consumer's preference. Her jewelry is gorgeous so I knew when she sent me these tassel button earrings, I couldn't wait to style them! She offers these in a number of different color combinations and the best part? They are super affordable sitting at the pretty price of $10! You know your girl loves a good deal! 
I admire that she creates all of her products by hand. (Your girl can only wish to be that crafty lolz) As a blogger, I definitely appreciate small businesses just as much as I appreciate retail stores. She is also a member of my sorority and we definitely believe in supporting our own! 

I used the earrings as the foundation for my outfit and created my look around that. I started with this mini dress that I've had for ages. I then used my cropped jacket but wanted to style it differently. I felt like if I would've worn the jacket the normal way it would swallow my frame - especially my upper body, so I opted to wear it off the shoulders. To keep the jacket in place and create a silhouette, I buttoned the last button on the jacket. I was so surprised with how it came out! I am telling y'all creativity and thinking outside the box goes a long way when creating looks! Then I added these white caged heels to compliment the white tassels. To keep the look fun and give it a little personality, I opted for white sunnies and this ladybug clutch from last year. You can see another way I styled this clutch here. What do you sweetie pies think of this look? Yay or Nay? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
