Fall please be good to me! The season transition came in full swing here in Charlotte with 50 degree weather, cloudy skies, and a little rain. I am so excited for fall simply because of the fashion - dark lipstick and nail lacquers, sweaters, thigh high boots, decorative tights, and leather jackets just to name a few. I celebrated my favorite season with an ode to the oxblood trend - a dark wine lip. Denim and leather are still some of my favorite trends, so I combined the two textures for a chic outfit of the day. Denim on denim is huge, so a lighter wash denim clutch completed my look.

I always wanted to know what the fascination the hip hop culture's has with the Jesus piece pendant. Is it a showcase of faith or is it just a fashion trend? This trend has been seen hanging around the necks of rappers to athletes and recently many fabulous women. I seen many of my Instagram favorites Ming Lee, Karen Civil, and Funhouse Jai Jai rocking tiny Jesus pendants and I had to find out where they got them. House of Bejewels has so many different gold pendant necklaces, but the Lord and Savior is the most popular item. My next purchase is going to be the angel pendant, "Gabriel." While in Atlanta over the weekend, I got a blinged out one as a gift (House of Bejewels has one similar called "Our Father"). The two look so perfect worn together.

I had a little pool party kickback for Labor Day with my a few of my friends. It was a scorching hot day, which was ideal for enjoying some of summer's last rays and a drink by the pool. I was gifted the colorful "Santa Rosa" two-piece from Monif C. The swimsuit does run big, so I went down to a size 20 - it fit perfect! This neon, geometric swimsuit is so fun and flirty. The top is so fashionable that it's almost non-swimsuit apparel. My new honey tresses matched my tan. I'm going to miss pool days with fall quickly approaching.

To whom do we owe the credit of the fashion taboo "No white after labor day?" I had a white dress that's been sitting in my closet and was perfect for the Drake vs. Lil Wayne concert afterparty. (Oh, I snuck a picture of Drake too!) I love wearing white because it's so crisp and bold. I wore a bodycon fit dress with a mid-calf caged sandal. I decided to do something different with my hair and ventured to the world of color - honey blondes and golden tones. How was your Labor Day Weekend?
