Ellements of Me

I recently won a blog giveaway for The Ellements of Personal Style book by Joe Zee at Elle Magazine from one of my favorite bloggers at Style Defined NYC Fashion Blog. I really love all the great photos and snippets of information especially on my style icon Tracee Ellis Ross. Her home is amazing and so is her style. Its been freezing cold and raining in NYC lately so my next few photo post are indoors.
I found this little glass Eiffel Tower bottle at Marshalls and I love it so much.

Got these earring from Bebe during my Southern Hospitality posting for Black Friday the torquoise ring is from my favorite place for accessories Jewelry Plaza in NYC. This full amor ring I ordered from China on ebay!

I also got this cute magnifying glass from Marshalls. Marshalls has awesome knickknacks for the home. See more of my apartment and decor here La Maison: because fashion starts at home!!!

I’m inlove with my new N.Y.L.A. boots that I got a few weeks ago. They remind me of Jeffrey Campbell, with a lower price tag. See them worn differently HERE!!!

Outfit
Button up top: Forever 21
Shorts: Levis
Opaque tights: American Apparel
Thigh High cable knit socks: American Apparel
Boots: N.Y.L.A. from DSW
Feather Earring: Bebe
The Ellements of Personal Style is a great book. I’m glad a won it! Some of my other favorite books at the moment are: The Book of Night Women by Marlon James and Nefertiti by Michelle Moran. These books are both about the strength women possess.
What are you reading and whats your favorite book????

    Very cute. I like the color of that shirt on you and the earrings are a nice touch too. Good to see a pretty dark complected woman.
