Boho Chic

7.26.2015



The bohemian chic vibe is definitely on trend this summer and I'm loving it. Carefree and flowy fabrics are not only cute, but a must in this hot Cali weather just to keep cool.


So, when I saw this dress from Rainbow, I knew that I had to have it. For under $15 this dress is a definitely a winner. The ruffle detailing at the top is super flirty and feminine and the fit is worry-free and non-restricting.


I wore this to my friend's "Glamchella" themed party this weekend, and it was perfect! I paired it with simple gold jewelry and my favorite fringe shoulder bag for some extra boho flair.

If you are thinking of trying a bohemian look yourself, think neutrals, fringe, knits, cut off shorts, funky prints, round sunglasses, flowy fabrics and florals. Try it out, you won't be disappointed!

Serving Chocolate

7.22.2015



I hear far too often women being downed because they are not small enough, cute enough, shapely enough and yes (still) light enough. It’s sad, but in 2015, colorism definitely still exists. Skin color is also a topic that floats around the blogger community as well, specifically, the topic of darker bloggers not getting as many opportunities or the same quality opportunities and recognition as some lighter skin bloggers. I promote self-love for EVERYONE. 

But I felt the need to create something that will EMPOWER and UPLIFT my brown skin beauties, in a world where we are constantly bombarded with beauty images that look NOTHING like us. So, to ALL my chocolate baddies (plus size or not): tag your Instagram and Twitter pictures with #ServingChocolate to rep for all of us around the world and for a chance to be featured on Lace N Leopard! Spread the word! And tag a brown skin beauty who’s serving up chocolate realness!!

Much love,

Progress Over Perfection

7.15.2015


This weekend I had the privilege of attending the BLM Lunch Lab. BLM, which stands for Bloggers Like Me, is a community of women that are bloggers, business women, soloprenuers, girlfriends etc. The group members share ideas, throw events, and support each other all the way around. They even wrote a book together! I am proud to say that I am a member of BLM and the organization was founded by a very good friend of mine, the gorgeous Leslie Young.


This day, we had the pleasure of discussing some pretty juicy blog business with Social Media expert Natalie Gouche. This was truly a treat. Not only is this woman beautiful and down to earth, she is full of knowledge and fun! To say I had a great time and learned a ton would be an understatement.



I wanted to look professional and polished but not too stuffy. So, I decided to wear my favorite pair of jeans (that I never plan on letting go lol) and a loose fitting white top, that I tied in a side knot to create some shape and edge.


I finished off the look with a lightweight blazer with mesh sleeves and my go-to strappy heels. Finished product? Exactly what I was going for! Isn’t it lovely when that happens?

It’s always great to see friends doing awesome things and blossoming in life. Many congrats on a successful event my friend and thank you Natalie for all your nuggets of knowledge! One thing that I will always take with me from this workshop is “Progress over Perfection”. I needed to hear that! Thank you!

Much love,

Am I the only person that can't believe it is already mid-July? Crazy, how time is flying.


Summer is well underway and that means it's time to bust out the shorts! I paired mine with this high split top from Amazing You Boutique. I love the way the orange looks against my skin tone and the sexy splits reveal your curves while camouflaging the tummy area.


I finished off the look with my leather Aldo shoulder bag, black strappy heels and blue mirrored aviators.


This is definitely my favorite summer look thus far, because it is the epitome of laid back and carefree. Which is what a Cali summer is all about.

Denim on Denim is currently on trend but can easily be viewed as a fashion classic.


I took a different approach to the trend by rocking an ombre chambray demin top from Charlotte Russe Plus. The color gradient is outright gorgeous and would look great with any pair of skinnies.

I added a black fringe shoulder bag (I'm obsessed with fringe! lol) and sexy strappy heels to add some edge and instant glam to the look. This is the perfect outfit for a casual dinner date with the girls or the boo ;)

Much love,

It's rare that you put on a dress that makes you want to sing "I'm every woman" lol. But this dress, from Amazing You Boutique, does exactly that! I promise ;) I instantly felt powerful, sophisticated and sexy.


 The beautiful print camouflages the tummy area well and the awesome fit hugs your curves in all the right places. This dress can easily go from a night out with the girls to a corporate party or event.

Pair it with some nice strappy heels and you are good to go!

All Black

It is something so sleek and classic about all black, that translates to all seasons.


It’s slimming, universal and outright chic.


Add a statement piece to your look, like a wide-brim hat or chunky necklace for some added glam.
