Classy Southern Belle + Where to Snag this Designer Dupe!

"It is the duty of the young Negro artist...to change through the force of his art that old whispering, 'I want to be white,' hidden in the aspirations of his people, to 'Why should I be white? I am a Negro--and beautiful!'" ~ Langston Hughes
Hey hey sweetie pies! I hope you all have been having an awesome week! Mine has been super busy but I am grateful nonetheless. I love today's look for the blog. I actually wore this on Easter. David and I went to church and then we had dinner at home. (I then went on to do some work such as taking photos and what not)
I love this look because it is easy and classy. This look was accomplished with minimal effort but I feel so put together! (Y'all know I love when that happens!)

This is a blouse and skirt combo that I gravitate towards a lot. The waist band on the skirt really helps to cinch me in. (A big plus for me so I don't lose my figure in this full skirt.) I opted for this colorful scarf because, why not?! I wanted to wear these gold strappy heels so I opted for gold jewelry. I kept it minimal for a chic feel.

Can we have a moment for this handbag? This designer dupe was super affordable and available in multiple colors! This beautiful yellow is perfect for Spring! I love designer but the way your girl budget is set up...plus why not buy the dupes if it means saving a little $$$? I am all about getting the most bang for my buck! I love the python head detail on the snap, which is a trademark for the Bulgari brand.  My exact bag is sold out but I linked the same dupe in this fun green color. Green will be great to use for the next three seasons! To complete the look, I opted for these cateye sunnies from Charlotte Russe. The black pair is sold out on the site so I linked a similar pair here.
What do you sweetie pies think of this look? I would love to know in the comments below!
As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie J

**I received samples courtesy of Derive Colognes to review. Even though these samples were given for my boyfriend David and I to review, all opinions are our own.**
As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

One trend that I have been obsessing over lately is the straw bag. You have probably seen this trend on your IG feed or through Pinterest. At first sight, I didn't think I would like this trend. The idea of straw itself made me itch lolz. But this once frumpy and overlooked handbag has been upgraded and I don't hate it! Whether you are in need of a crossbody or an evening bag, there are stylish straw options. Check out my top suggestions below!



I did a bit of searching and these are the ones that stood out to me the most. I l…
