Prada Skittles

FAB ones! We are absolutely adoring the new streamlined satchel that Prada releasing this season. This new satchel is offered in a variety of hues, including red, orange, blue, and purple. Prada has succeeded with maintaining its classic hunting bag inspired shape and rustic hardware. We def would be willing to dish out the $1595 price tag that Prada has placed on this beauty! The satchel is set for a June release date in the United States, Hong Kong, and the United Arab Emirates. The good thing is that these colors can take you from Spring - the Fall season so you'll have plenty of time to rock it to make sure you're getting your money's worth!

Braided Up!

Hello FAB ones! Well, as of late I have been deciding exactly what I want to do with my hair. While I am in limbo, I decided to test out some braids.... I took it all the way back to my Poetic Justice braids and have been LOVING every minute of it! Check out a few of the various styles I have been trying out.... All while keeping my scalp clean and conditioned.... I even have had the opportunity to test out a dry shampoo as well, not too bad, but I still prefer a good old fashion wash with shampoo and water! Aaaahhhh.....

I Rock White...

Hey FAB readers! Spring is in full swing here n LA (and at times feeling of summer).

What better way for a girl to celebrate than with a fresh clean white fit! I LOVE this time of year! Fresh clean look w/ a dash of color. Take a peek!

Highs and Lows: Isabel Marant Betty Sneakers VS. H&M VS. Nine West

Hey guys so by now we are sure that you have seen the Isabel Marant Betty Sneakers that have been seen on fab fashionistas from Alicia Keys to Tracee Ellis Ross to Beyonce. The Isabel Marant sneaker features a 3.5" concealed heel with leather and suede detail and a price tag of $680.00.

These are hands down the BEST Isabel Marant Betty Sneaker "inspired shoes"!!!!!
I think I choked on my tongue when I saw these shoes by Nine West. The Lana 200 sneakers feature a wedge heel with velcro closures and  suede and leather combination. The best part is that the shoes are only $88!!! That's right you are saving nearly $600. So you can stop reading and click here to start shopping :)
If you love the look of the Isabel Marant Betty sneaker and the Nine West Lana Version and not the price allow us to introduce you to H&M's version. These Shoes feature a concealed wedge heel and imitation leather and suede material. And while these shoes are not an exact replica for only $34.95 they definitely fit the bill. Let us know if this is a trend you are willing to try.

Fab Spring Trend Alert: Floral Denim (for less)

Hey fab readers, by now you may have figured that I'm not the biggest fan of denim. I would much rather throw on a dress (in part due to my morning laziness). Denim just sort of bores me, however with floral denim all over the spring fashion shows I figured that it would only be a matter of time before the look trickled down (because I like many refuse to pay $400 for floral denim). I must say that the floral denim (in the right print) isn't to shabby. Teen store Delia and Asos have offered budget friendly alternatives to the trend, check out a few of my faves below. Let me know if this is a look that you will be trying out for spring or if you are more of a classic girl ;-)

FYI guys Delias currently has buy 1 pair get 1 pair 1/2 off...(so get to shopping )

Get the Look: Brandy Norwood at Wendy Williams Show

Hey fab readers!!! A few months ago singer/actress Brandy Norwood was doing promo for television show the Game on Wendy WIlliams and was wearing a fab tweed short suit a la Chanel. We searched high and low for a fabulously chic and cheap alternative and couldn't find one worth post worthy. Well that has all changed thanks to UK based brand Lipsy. Lipsy has a tre chic version of the 2 piece suit that features a tweed jacket with quarter length sleeves and contrast piping and a fringing to the front and back and shorts with frayed detail as well. While this matching set will still cost $157.57 its super fun yet chic and perfect for a summer dinner :)

The Perfect Nude Nail for 99 Cents

Fab readers as I'm sure you all know by now we love a great deal, and that goes for beauty products as well. Imagine my surprise when I came across this nude nail polish in the 99 cents store. I figured it would be worth a try since it was only a dollar and I am glad I bought it. While Ive never been the type of girl to drop $12 dollars on a bottle of nail polish like many I really don't think I will now. I absolutely adore this color and received several compliments (should have seen people's face when I told them I got it at the 99 cent store). If you are interested in the color its BC557 by L.A. Colors.

To Make it last longer just put on a good base coat and top coat. I use Sally Hansen Maximum Growth

Get the Look: Beyonce at Carnegie Hall

Hey fab readers, by now we have all seen how fabulous Beyonce looked as she resurfaced at Jay Z's concert at Carnegie Hall and we figured that while this isn't a "look for less" option its ok to splurge every now and then and makes for a great option to wear on Valentine's day.

Beyonce was spotted out wearing the Molina dress by Alice by Temperley collection (the diffusion Alice Temperley collection). The dress features flattering and forgiving rouching down the front and is priced at $395 (while definitely not cheap it's not ridiculously priced either). Let us know what you think of the look.

Fab Faceoff: Ciara vs.Jennifer Williams in Mark Fast

Hey fab readers while looking online we came across a picture of Jennifer Williams wearing an uber sexy black dress from Mark Fast. The dress features a cut out design that leaves very little to the imagination.

Ciara was also spotted wearing the sexy number to The Two Kings dinner last year.While we can't rock this dress we admire any woman that pull it off and we think that both women looked amazing in the dress. Let us know who you think rocked the dress better (because we can't decide).
