Superb Seven: A Pop of Color

IMG_6364

Hello, my fabulouses! Today’s Superb Seven outfit is so lovely and perfect for an internship meeting or a sweet lunch date with that hottie you met at the campus café. The chic combination of light petal pink and sleek black is so classic and charming. Accenting this look with shiny gold wedges, long tassel earrings, and  handmade necklace adds just the right amount of shimmer and bling.

For a bit fun, I added a pop of color to this ensemble with the hot pink Nine West bag that I got for only FIVE DOLLARS…originally…originally? Y’all will have to check out my Grand Haul video below to find out the original price :)

Superb Seven: College Interview Ready

IMG_6243

Hello, my fabulouses! Have you every wondered what to wear to a college interview? Then this Superb Seven outfit is perfect for you! When putting together an outfit for a college interview, it is important to look professional and poised, yet youthful and trendy. Here are five easy steps to help you achieve that look.

  1. Start with a classic black pencil skirt.
  2. Find a patterned or brightly hued blazer.
  3. Toss on a graphic t-shirt that is mature (yes, that means no cats), but with a pinch of youthfulness (sparkle, bright color, and so forth).
  4. Look for a colorful and comfortable pair of kitten heel pumps that will coordinate with the blazer.
  5. Keep your jewelry as minimal as possible. This is NOT the time for wild arm candy.
