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

**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…
