If you follow me on social media you know I am in Love with my victorian top from chicstar.com. I had this in Red and in Black(it’s sooooo cute whatever color they offer will be in my closet). I remember looking at this a while ago and thinking “I would live this in purple”. Well……. I guess someone else was having the same thoughts I was cause now the purple is in production. This retails on their site Chic Star for $49.95 for the juniors size and $59.95 for the plus size. BUT, You can get 39% off by using coupon code CANDYCOUTURE at checkout. I would definitely recommend this item. The buttons are sturdy, with the first 2 I had the color didn’t bleed and it can be worn as a dress or a top depending on your height. Do you already own this top/dress. Instagram your pics in it with the hashtag #BNF (blessedandfashionable) and I’ll post some of my favorite looks here!!!!!!
I can’t wait to see your looks
Peace, Love, and Blessings

Lately I have been OBSESSED with faux leather. top, jogging pants, skater
skirt, dress, and now I add a Pencil Skirt to my collection. Ive seen them cost anywhere from $40 to more than $70 bucks. I almost paid $40 for one until I randomly walked into a Simply Fashions Store and found this one for $15.99 (don’t mind the junkie fitting room). This skirt paired with a black graphic tee and a blazer is gonna be sooooo cute. Speaking of cute, anyone who knows me knows my favorite thing in my closet right now is my Faux Leather Joggers (I have them in black and white, I want red and turquoise) <3
While doing my usual Online window shopping I found these Leather Like Joggers on Rainbows website for only $12.99.
One Item I want to mention is this Faux Leather with Ponte Back jumpsuit from Ashley Stewart. If you want to go overboard with this trend like I do then this is a must have. You gotta be quick though cause the only one I saw left on the website is a size 16 and not every location got this item.
Whats Trends are you currently obsessed with and how do you find your “looks for less”?
Peace, Love, and Blessings <3 <3 <3
Hey There Beautiful People!
We all ohhhh and ahhhh over our favorite celebrities and their fashion choices. Unfortunately, as young christians we don’t have a lot of people to look up to who keep it stylish and COVERED. Fortunately we do have Gospel superstar Kierra Sheard. Kierra is one of the few that gives us relevant fashion without being trashy or suggestive. I’ve noticed that she is a big fan of Color Blocking and Bright Colors. If you wanna get the Kierra Sheard look follow these tips:
- Shapers are Key: Any good look starts with a Good Foundation. A good shaper keeps everything smooth and in place
- Lots of color and prints: It is rare you see kierra wearing one color head to toe and if she does she definitely adds something with the accessories
- Accessories are a Must: Judging by the many pictures she post on instagram (@khloedrew) This fashionsta is in love with unique earrings, and Gold necklaces and bangles.
- Heels, High Heels: Yes you can bet on seeing kierra in a pair of flats but it’s her pumps that make a statement
- Try Something Different: Kiki Officially became my fashion Shero when she stepped out looking amazing wearing a BOLD BLUE LIP. The big tip I have for trying something bold and different is to be confident in your decision.
Fashion is fun, don’t take it so seriously. In the end if you don’t like it you can just take it off. Remember, it’s ok to be inspirerd by someone, but remember to put your own spin on things. Peace, Love, and Blessings Beautiful People!!!!!!!!
P.S. Where is this Mamajik clothing line at?I was excited to see her stuff!!!!!!!

Soon many will be going back to school/ starting a new school. For many people that means back to school clothes shopping. Most Love this time of year, and a few weirdo’s (lol j/k) hate it. Just to make it easier i’ve compilled my own back to school shopping guide with a list of stores and a couple of key pieces
Citi Trends: Think Burlington, or Ross. Great fashion at great Prices
Ashley Stewart, Lane Bryant, Avenue, Torid, Asos
K&G is great for the more dressy pieces
Dots: this store always has hidden jewels and has the best return policy
Simply Fashions: Not my favorite store for bottoms but they do have some great pieces
- A pair of colored Jeggings
- A cute Statement Tee
- A good Tennis Shoe
- A denim Button up
- Belts Belts Belts
- A knee length pencil skirt
- Good Shapewear
- A pair of black trousers
- A nice fall/winter coat
- Statement jewelry
- A Smile
Everyone can look like a million bucks no matter what the budget. One of my favorite things to do is to shop the salvatioin army. Vintage peices can always take an outfit from drab to fab. I could go on and on about what should be in your wardrobe and such but I think i’ll keep it short and sweet
Peace. Love, and Blessings to you all

I know it’s winter and it’s cold outside and depending on where you are there may even be snow. That doesn’t mean you cant get a head start on your summer wardrobe shopping. I can just about guarantee you that any store you go into will have some summer clothes and shoes on sale. many people wait til it starts to get warm before they even think about summer shopping. Think about it like this Why wait til april and pay $15-$25 for a top when you can buy off season and pay anywhere from $2.50-$10.00 for the same top. Just something to think about. Stores like Dots and Forever 21 have some of the best holiday and New Years sales that include there clearance items. Just some food for thought.
So if you were as unlucky as I was you weren’t able to go to chicago for Kierra Sheards live recording Featuring BRL. Lucky for us social network sites like twitter are able to keep people with real time stats of whats going on.
So lets start with what she wore:
JESUS!!!! I need her jacket in my life ASAP. For the recording Kierra Wore all black consisting of black boots, black pants, a black shirt and A black jacket with Bold Shoulders and rhinetone Star detailing (I need this jacket in my life). Brl did black tops or jackets with shoulder embleshments. The men of Brl did all Black with Blue ties.
I must be honest. I was scared about what she was going to wear. While I love her music, Her fashion tends to be a miss a lot of times for me. This time i am Very pleased with what I saw. Very simple but very bold at the same time. I would have loved to see her with a statement necklace but either way I give the fashion fot the night an A. Seeing that I wasn’t able to attend the festivities. The fashion is the only thing I can really comment on. So, Did you go? if so how was it? will, you be buying the album? What was your favorite part of the recording?

I’m really disappointed that the only gospel representation as far as performances was Yolanda Adams singing during the Aretha Franklin Tribute. My question with that is why wasn’t Karen Clark Sheard Performing during the tribute. Everyone knows she loves aretha and aretha loves her. I can almost gurantee you if they would have asked her to sing she would have done it. Well, What are your thoughts on the grammy’s. Personally, I think this was a good one .
Again, gospel needs to do better with the wardrobe.
OK, So Yolanda Adams looks great. And while I am a fan of everyone pictured I must say i’m not seeing anything greater than a C- in the Fashion department. I understand not everyone has a stylist but I know for sure that you could get one of for no other show, the grammy’s. I would love to see a gospel artist on the best dressed list but i’m not holding my breath.

- Flat Iron Technique
- Of Course Curlers
- or you can just by hair already curled. lol
Another Great holiday look is the classic up-do. anyone at any age can wear an up-do as long as you find the right one. Some different type of up-do’s are:
- The classic bun
- the “hair” bow
- Braided up-do’s
There are so many different things you can do with curls and with an up-do. So have fun and let me know what hair styles you like for the holidays
