Express yourself, strike a pose, add some flavor, work those clothes! πŸ™‚

Technically, fall is here and I’ve been wanted to wear a cute turtleneck that wasn’t too heavy so I pulled out this thin stripped turtle neck. The turtle neck is thrifted. I styled it with some basic black high-waist jeans, with black pumps and a green maxi vest. The vest is actually thrifted as well! Never forget! The thrift store has many gems that are just waiting to be found. I have had this cute bow-tie necklace for a long timeΒ I purchased it years ago from forever 21.

Thank you for checking out my personal style! Enjoy

Shimmy that thang girl!

So I wanted to do an updated look in this gold sequin dress from shoptobi. I feel so dramatic and queenly when I put this on. This dress is definitely a statement piece and it is oh so comfortable to wear, shimmy brings the bling (which i love by the way), Β and the little slits on the sides just tops it off for me! This is one of my favorite statement dresses and I’m so glad I purchased it y’all.

The shoes are wrap around pumps from gojane.

Check out my golden pictures below!

I love Erica’s distressed blue jeans πŸ™‚

Hey y’all! This week I have someone new to introduce to you! My cousin Erica,


She is into style and fashion as well and she designs clothes! Her designs are so unique and next level. So, we recently collaborated and then decided that we wanted to start a joint style blog! We decided on a new name “Beyond the same”. Β This is the start of a wonderful style union and I am so excited that we get to finally bring this to life! Be on the lookout for BEYOND THE SAME posts and show us love!

Here’s the link to our facebook page πŸ™‚

So this week we shot some inside shots with my blue backdrop, my outfit consisted of a caged bodysuit with highwaist blue jeans. Erica’s outfit was a sheer, bell sleeved, lace top with some nice distressed black jeans! πŸ™‚ We hope that you like our fits and comment on our look this week.
