Threads of the Day: Winter White

Ok I am itching for Spring to get here already! So to push things along a bit, I decided to break out my white jeans in honor of a “winter white” ensemble to wear to a chic hookah lounge with some girlfriends over the weekend. Clearly I don’t pay any mind to the “no white after Labor Day” rule. Who made that up anyway?

I wanted to focus my outfit around mixing prints and patterns in a semi monochromatic way. Black and white was my focal theme with a different spin of adding a pop of electric blue lipstick! So fun!

Thread List

Abercrombie & Fitch jeans
Zara beaded jacket
Top (gifted)
Zara strappy sandals 
Custom blend blue lipstick by Lucienne Francois (contact her for your own custom lipstick at luciennefrncs92@gmail.com). 

What items are you eager to whip out of your closet for Spring?

Threads of the Day: Renae Cut Offs

Yesterday I went to a blogger award reception at Tags Concept Salon for Tastemaker Magazine for the top fashion, style, beauty, and hair bloggers in Atlanta. I am super honored to have been nominated for Top Beauty Blogger and I can’t wait until the actual award show in March! Thanks again to everyone who voted for me, I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate you :)

I wanted to keep it cool and chic and decided to rock my Renae Cut Offs to the event! Here are the rest of my outfit details.

Thread List:

Shorts: Renae Cut Offs
Blouse: Thrifted
Coat: Zara
Boots: Truth or Dare by Madonna (These were a super lucky find. I had no idea she even had a shoe line!)
Belt: BCBG
Clutch: Zara 

When rocking short little shorts, I always like to balance it out with a classy top. The shorts and boots added the sex appeal while the classic white blouse and tweed coat kept everything proportioned. It’s all about balance ladies! You can get just as much (positive) attention by keeping it classy! 


Big thanks again to Tastemaker Magazine!

I have some super exciting news to share with you that I’ve been holding in for weeks! Ya girl was selected to be on the cover of next month’s Anniversary issue of curlBOX magazine!

You’ve seen me blog about curlBOX here, here, and here and more. It was such an honor when Myliek Teele, Founder and CEO of curlBOX, asked me to be apart of their one year anniversary box. I’ve been a supporter of curlBOX since it launched a year ago and you ladies should definitely get on board if you’re not already.

Saturday morning, at the curlBOX office, we did a super fun shoot complete with a custom curlBOX birthday cake, gorgeous accessories by Stella & Dot, and plenty of hair talk! 

Check out some of yesterday’s behind-the-scenes pics via Instagram at the cover shoot!

New Years Eve 2013 Recap

I wanted to come into the new year with an open mind and an open heart. A fresh start of positivity, laughter, risk taking, and blossoming relationships! 

Every year I used to stress myself about what to wear for New Years Eve. That was not the case this year, I chose to go with clothes I already had and either hadn’t worn yet or had not worn in a while.

I got my dress for like $20 at a no name boutique, I made my vintage lace jacket and then had altered to fit my body. 

My style is pretty simple, just jazzed up with a lot of the right accessories! I looooove accessories … jewelry, shoes, bags, I love it all lol! I went with my nude sandals with the sparkle heel from Zara (pictured center) …

and my gold sparkle clutch with the rhinestone clasp. I think I got it from Forever 21 a long time ago. 

I added the finishing touches with my blue and gold statement necklace from Topshop. 

and here’s the finished look :)

Me and my girlfriends brought in the new year in style and partied the night away with Mr. “Gold all in my watch,” Trinidad James. Here are some more photos taken throughout the night via Instagram (@McKenzie_Renae) ! Enjoy :)

Happy 2013!!
