I love this Spring 2010 collection from Gucci, these shoes are so sexy and just plain hot! Yes, you will need to wear a pair of black sandals during the spring and even summer, so why not wear a pair of these. My perfect outfit would be a wife beater, skinny jeans, and a Gucci handbag with any pair of the shoes I have shown here, but if you want to keep it super sexy, put on that "LBD" (little black dress) and be the center of attention anywhere guaranteed!
Every woman has to own at least one "little black dress" also known as LBD, and that LBD will be used for that night out on the town with your girls, or that date that you actually want to leave a great impression upon. Little black dresses can be bought almost anywhere you can find women's clothing, but if you are looking for a sexy, curve hugging, tight in all the right places, LBD, you need a Max Azria designer dress. BCBG and Herve Leger dresses are perfect for giving you that perfect amount of sexy you need to pull off the LBD!

Summer is almost here, and yes ladies it's almost time to get into your favorite bikini and lay on your favorite beach, looking great of course! Now is the time to purchase your swimsuit, or else you'll be out of luck with finding a hot swimsuit once summer has already arrived. Keva by Keva J designs some of the sexiest swimsuits I have seen in a long time and the cutouts are guaranteed to make you the most popular woman walking the beach, or pool, even that summer pool party. Don't forget your sunglasses, and if you are bold like me you'll be draped in necklaces, big earrings, high heels, and a sunhat, I always say it, accessorize!

2010 is definitely the year of futuristic swag, from cars to shoes, to fashion, you can't avoid the fact that the future is now! I love these dresses by the late Alexander McQueen, he does futuristic fashion like no other, styling mega superstars like Lady GaGa and Beyonce, the futuristic doors to fashion are open. Dresses are the perfect item for a night out, and you have to have the right pair of heels on to accentuate your curves and legs. Wide shoulders and wild prints gives your dress that look of the future!

Jeans are forever in style, can be worn all year round, and are definitely a guilty pleasure of my own. You can pretty much wear any jeans you have, but if you want to keep it trendy get yourself a pair of bleach washed skinny jeans. Ripped, acid wash, bleach washed, and tie dye jeans are going to take over your closet (again, for some of us) but trust me, it's definitely hot!

Sky high heels are not for everybody, so I have to show off the hottest sneakers for my fly little ladies with a crazy tennis shoe game. If I had to wear sneakers it would be these, simply cause I love the design, every shoe you see are courtesy of Radii, the hottest shoe out right now! And if you're going to wear Radii's you have to have the matching G-Shock watch, ladies make sure you accessorize what ever look you are trying to achieve. I personally would wear the Radii's and G-Shock with, a screen t-shirt and skinny jeans, but a skirt or shorts will do just fine too.

Diamond Princess Trina recently performed at a Calle Ocho concert, and she looked amazing! I must admit she has been looking so great lately, haters go on and hate, but the girl looks fabulous. She's wearing those mini shorts I spoke about in a previous post, and the outfit definitely screams "fab"!! I went ahead and included a "Style Steal" for all of you "rockstarr/princesses" out there trying to copy this look. Don't be scared to try those crepe shorts either!
(1.) Mel Waterfall top $190 (2.) Thakoon Sequined Crepe Shorts $1,350 (3.) Stuart Weitzman sequined peep toe $355 (4.) Rhinetsone stacked bangle set
Young Money's rapping Barbie Nicki Minaj was the co-host of this year's Rip The Runway, and she displayed some "extreme fashion" looks during the show, but this black and white outfit was kind of cute. On the other hand the Diamond Princess herself Trina, performed her hit "Million Dollar Girl" and she definitely looked like a million dollars! If you ask me Trina's one dress killed Nicki Minaj's four outfits, but what do you think Rockstarr Trina or Harajuku Minaj?
BET aired it's annual Rip The Runway where Hip Hop meets fashion on the catwalk, and this year they chose to center a little extra attention on some pretty hot footwear. In case you missed the first airing I won't be the spoiler on how I felt about the show because they will be re-running it on Thursday 8pm ET. I did however pick a few of the shoes showcased on the runway that I thought were the hottest ones, check em out! (Alexander McQueens and Giuseppe Zanottis)

With Easter right around the corner, everybody will be rushing to find that perfect dress, so when picking, look for that perfect printed dress. Anywhere you shop you are guaranteed to see a plethora of pretty prints, make sure you try the dresses on because of the fabrics, the flow, and fit may be different according to your body type. Find what's flattering to your body and don't be scared to wear those ruffles :)
With all respect due, rest in peace to fashion guru and designer Alexander McQueen. I must say this is my favorite post thus far because these multi-color heels are so sexy, and any woman can pull these off and look awesome. There's not much I need to say except make sure you have at least one pair of multi-color high heels before the summer ends!
We all have those days where we want to be casual and comfortable, but still stylish, so here's the looks girls! For spring and summer remember to brighten the colors of your wardrobe, pastels are perfect in April, May, and June. Brighten those soft colors to something more bold for the summer months, purples and blues are definitely "hot" colors! The key to keeping your t-shirt and leggings stylish is accessories, as you can see I included my favorite accessories; Bamboo earrings and the nameplate necklaces are trending again this season. Personalize your nameplates or keep it simple with something like "love" , and put on your favorite sandals, heels, or even sneakers to complete that trendy and cute, casual outfit.

This little beauty definitely takes after her mommy, Nahla is Halle Berry's gorgeous little girl. She is too cute dressed in pink, with sweat pants and her tiny little sneakers. Nahla looks likes a perfect little angel playing in the sand.

You're shore to sea plenty of sexy skippers walking around this Spring and Summer because it's all about the nautical looks this year! I remember having a little sailor dress as a girl, my baby girl even has one now, you know the navy and white dress, with the big gold buttons and matching sailor hat, awww lol. Well ladies get your stripes together, and wear that red, white, and blue proudly. There are so many different ways to style the nautical look, shorts, skirts, cardigans, sandals, bikinis, and so much more, just remember stripes in navy and white or red and white, coupled with lots of gold accessories will have you set to sail in style any day!

It's the 1st day of March so Spring is coming soon, ladies now is the time to get your apparel up for the season. I'm here to guide you to what's hot for this season and 1st up, military jackets. Make sure you get yourself a military style jacket, vest, sweater, even a t-shirt will work, but make sure you include the military look in your Spring 2010 wardrobe. I personally love this look, I'll post some pics of myself later showing off a few different ways to style this look, but for now enjoy my girl Beyonce who wears it oh so well in both pics! Sex it up by pairing a leather military jacket with a mini dress, or make it casual with a pair of your favorite skinny jeans.
It's definitely time to enroll in a gym, if you don't currently have a membership because this Spring/Summer it's all about showing off the legs. Boy shorts, tap pants, even bodysuits are all going to be the hottest bottoms to wear this season, and the shorter the better. Try on different styles, hems, and fabrics to find the shorts that fit your figure. If you're more "hippy" like myself try a pair of cuffed, rayon/polyester shorts, if you're slim go for very short or high wasted pair of denim shorts. Just be prepared to show off a lot of skin this season and have fun accessorizing, with belts and cute buttons. BTW I love Chanel Iman...isn't she beautiful!
Trust me on this one ladies, stock up on your knee high socks for this season, leggings are about to expire and knee high socks are taking over. I already have a few pairs in solid basic colors, but go wild with prints and bold colors. Pair your knee high socks with shorts, a mini skirt or dress, and the sexiest pair of high heels you own! You can even do an open toe shoe with your knee high socks and still be in style, also socks of shorter lengths are going to be popular this Spring as well.
