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.
