Eversave deal I had to share

Spend $25 and get a $50 gift card to use on get $2 off the price for signing up for eversave emails! That easy! I'm so excited to use this deal to get the Steve Maddens I've been wanting. Another great tip about is they price match, so do the research, it's worth it!

The shoe I've had my eye on:). It's usually worth waiting for a good deal:)

I'm in love with the new tubands from Gold Saturn

They can never let you down! Tons of great new colors and prints to get! Gold Saturn

I keep getting stopped about this tote bag from Ballard design so I had to share!

They are only $25 and I think I received a discount if you sign up for emails!

Style Crush: Solange Knowles

I was excited to see Solange's look on Who What Wear Daily today and realized I never really highlight her on my blog...even though whenever I'm asked who influences my style she is on the here are some of her looks I'm digging right now. I just asked her on twitter if she would do an interview for Fashionalities...crossing my fingers!!:)

Look featured on Who What Wear...I've been thinking about braids and might need to do them like this:)

I'm all over fitted cropped tops right now and I love this look! Cropped tips are perfect with high waisted maxi skirts like this! Wonder who these are by...

I love all of the head coverings/turbans/scarves! Great styling inspiration for natural hair like mine!:)

Her look is just very chic with an ethnic twist...which is how I see a majority of my looks:)

I'm featured in Caliente today!

Caliente is a weekly publication in Tucson that I was asked to participate in to highlight high/low shopping. It's my first styling job since having Sahara so I'm really excited about being back in the game...the only thing I keep thinking is that I should have styled the second look with a denim vest...but, it turned out looking ok..

My fab model, Mariana! She's amazing!! Thanks for working with me on this!!

The bag was the high item- KOOBA. Dress is Missoni for $15 at second hand store-brand new!

I LOVE Missoni and can't wait till they are at Target!

Makeup must-have: Bobbi Brown tortoise shell collection

I want it all! The brushes and the eye shadows are at the top of the list!

Tracee Ellis Ross: Style/hair inspiration

I've always been so inspired by Tracee's hair and style. I'm hoping she has a new show soon...she should host a fashion program.

Here's some hair tips of Tracee's I found online and I'm going to try:

Tracee specifically mentioned JF Lazartique Shea Butter and Rene Furterer Karite as two of the deep conditioners she applies to her hair after a shampoo but before exposing her strands to chlorine, salt or sun.

In Jolie Magazine Tracee shared a variety of hair secrets. When she wants to wear her hair in its "natural" curl pattern, she told Jolie she uses Aveda's Cherry Almond Bark and Deep Penetrating Revitalizer conditioners.

She also relies on Denman brushes. Besides Aveda she alternates with Mixed Girls and applies their Leave-in Conditioner to her hair when it is wet.

Tracee's hair:

I need to cut my bangs again...adds some edge.

Love these braids!

My search for the perfect crop top

I know it seems crop tops are everywhere, but they are all boxy, flowy ones and I'm in the market for something that will contour my waist. Today, I went to American Apparel and found that the cropped tanks I was viewing online weren't available in stores yet. Luckily, the store attendant gave me free shipping (it usually costs $5). So, we will see how this one goes and I might just buy the other styles.

The one I bought:)

Budget DIY tips from the Today show

The Aritzia piece I fell in love with today

This item caught my eye right away...I tried it on and it was HEAVEN! Plus, it's on SALE...I thought it was still a little pricey, but apparently it's not that bad...

For newcomers, this is a Canadian brand. They have 9 stores in the U.S. and just opened a store in SoHo which has gained a lot of attention with fashionistas. I'm excited to know that whenever I come and visit my family in Portland I can venture out to Washiongton Sqauare to experience a piece of great, new style in the U.S. Plus, NO TAX!

Some of the other items that caught my eye.
