Weekend With My Bestie

I had the best weekend with one of my best friends, Crystal (follow her on Twitter). She drove up from Charlotte to have a girls’ weekend. Friday night we went to Lotus Lounge and Saturday night we attended a white party. Crystal has the hugest makeup collection of anyone I know and it’s always fun to play in her makeup. Check out our looks from both nights. I finally got to wear my pink and white striped skirt from Forever 21 on Friday. Deviating from my normal baby pink lip, I wore MAC’s Morange. I purchased these dramatic feather earrings from a kiosk in the mall to pair with my dress I wore to the white party. The earrings had teal accents and I thought to bring that out, to line my lower lids with a teal shadow. My outfit Saturday is one of my personal favorites. My dress is courtesy of Torrid. I had a great time with my bestie and I can’t wait for us to do it up again!

Super Jam Outfit

I absolutely loved my outfit last night. I visited Old Navy last week and saw this amazing white shirt with chiffon flutter sleeves. I ordered two striped body con skirts from Forever 21 (not the plus size line) and I knew the royal blue one would pair perfectly with the top. I was so excited because my skirts arrived Friday because I was going to attend an after party for the Super Jam concert. I raced back to Old Navy to find the shirt still there in my size. I amaze myself how I can visualize an outfit without trying on any of the pieces. I get a lot of questions about what lipstick I'm wearing. Last night I wore "Saint Germain" by MAC.

The skirts I ordered online from Forever 21 are not from the plus size line, but from the regular line. All their body con skirts are extremely stretch, which gives more room for curvier girls! They are so inexpensive, both were $5.50, and there are every color imaginable.

Go Girl, It's Ya Birthday

I'm one year older - a fabulous 23! I don't feel any older, but the numbers tell otherwise. I brought in the big 23 with my fabulous friends as we dined in Charlotte at Nikko Japanese Sushi Bar. Munching on shrimp tempura rolls, firecracker shrimp, and a Patron margarita, I was enjoying every moment of my day! Feeling beautiful on the inside and out, I rocked my navy one shoulder dress from Torrid. My mom had custom monogram cupcakes made for me from The Blushing Bakeshop. The night didn't end there. I went to Dharma Lounge and partied in VIP with some local celebrities - Brooke Bailey and Steven Jackson of the Charlotte Bobcats. I celebrated the entire weekend with friends. Friday night I supported my friend and model, Alexis Greene, at her event, the Seagram 2012 model search at Club 935. Continuing with the birthday weekend on Saturday I went to the Maz Entertainment white party at the Westin Hotel. Attending the white party was very last minute and the only white article of clothing I wore was a tank top. Luckily, a friend of mine is the owner of the party group and gave me a green light on my attire. Overall, I enjoyed my birthday. I need to purchase a new camera within the next month. I miss higher quality photos! Peep the pictures below!
