watercolors

Thank you to everyone who voted for me to win the CBS San Francisco Most Valuable Blogger award. I WON!!! I really, truly appreciate all the support :):):)
My favorite thing about this outfit is my hair. Haha.
I got a $35 NYC Dominican blowout (yes that's pricey for NYC but the shop is in Midtown) and I was whipping my hair back and forth all weekend ;)
My next favorite thing about the look is up for debate.
It's either the lining of this blazer because I'm a true sucker for details.
But I also really LOVE these woven covered platform slingbacks. I think it's a tie...

wearing: rachel by rachel roy blazer, mossimo tank, f21 jeggings, carlos santana heels, michael kors watch, gifted bracelet
worn to: dinner at INTERMEZZO lounging at HONEY

Please head over to BLACK FASHION BLOGGERS and check out the feature done on me. Thanks NIKA!

  4. Congratulations!! You deserved that win!!

    I love nothing better than a fun lining. Those shoes are hot too!!

    P.S. I know that exact feeling because I do it every time I get a blow-out. They just get that bounce going so well. :)
