“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ― H. Jackson Brown Jr.

This is the skirt from Topshop that I ordered to wear for my birthday but it wasn’t delivered until the day after. I love Topshop but their standard delivery is easily 20+ days. Just terrible if you have time constraints! Anyway, when I wore it, I was asked three times if I was African. Lol! I love my African prints but I am very much Haitian. Same motherland though so yeah, I’m kind of African. Continue reading ““Safari fashion””

In this post, I talked about my new found love: WEDGE SNEAKERS. Sometimes I say sneaker wedges. I am not sure it makes a difference: po-ta-to / po-tah-to. So anyway, I went out and bought a pair. I decided to go with an affordable one at Forever 21 in case I ended up not liking them but I have to say, I fell in love. They are so comfortable and with the leopard print, mine go with everything. I am pretty sure I will buy another one very soon. Check out the pictures and let me know your thoughts.
I am so so sick right now but I refuse to stay in bed and let this cold and stuffy nose get the best of me. So I will try my best to keep this post super short. I hope you guys enjoy the pictures!
Hello ladies and gents,
This is going to be a super quick post as I am currently on my lunch break at work. This look is my ‘go to’ type of outfit because you simply can never go wrong with a pair of jeans accessorized nicely with a pair of gorgeous heels and a blazer. It’s easy, comfortable and chic.

Hello my VersiDivas!
A new year has begun and I know many of you might have made a resolution of not buying as many pairs of shoes as you did in 2012; and some of you might have already broken that resolution and that is ok. “No new shoes this year” said no fashionista ever:-)
If you are a shoe lover like myself, I think I may have found the perfect solution to our shoe dilemma. As much as I would love to take credit for this genius idea, it was Sandrysabel Ortiz who turned every girl’s problem into the business model I should have thought of years ago. According to her website, so cleverly titled theheelcondoms.com, Ortiz “wanted to take her closet of shoes in her suitcase” every time she traveled. Given the ridiculous luggage weight restrictions imposed by all major airlines, packing more than a couple of pairs at a time was virtually impossible; “that was when the Heel Condoms idea was born.” says Ortiz. Basically, the heel condom completely changes the appearance of your basic pumps. They come in an array of colors and can be replaced as often as needed. Here are my favorites:
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I wanted to share with you all my outfit for church yesterday which was very comfortable with a pop of color.
Everyone one around me seems to have the flu (my boss and photographer included). I am trying so hard not to catch it. Please be careful out there and wash your hands endlessly. I want to thank my boyfriend for filling in my photographer’s shoes for the day; I love the pictures:)
On January 1st, I attended my friend’s birthday dinner in this lace number. The back is actually completely open but I did not get any pictures of it unfortunately. I am not sure where it’s from because I ‘stole’ it from my best friend. That’s what friends are for right?! 🙂

I am blogging on the go today (hence the not so clear pictures) since I went on a mini getaway to celebrate one of my favorite cousin’s birthday. We drove to Atlantic City and stayed at Harrah’s where we partied by the pool last night.
I got a lot of compliments on this post where I wore the orange version of these cigarette pants from Gap so I decided to show you guys the blue ones. They are super comfortable and were on sale so I went with both colors. Although I usually wear a size 3 in pants, I had to go with a double zero at Gap and they’re still fairly loose on me. I was definitely not happy about that. **Sigh!**

I could not stop staring when I first saw this pair of Satin Stripe Floral pumps by none other than the genius luxury shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti. The floral details, the crystal embellishments and the amazing design all come together beautifully to create this masterpiece. It is not at all surprising that Mr. Zanotti works with experts in many fields, such as jewelers and heel & tree experts, in order to achieve the best quality and most unique designs.
