Casual NYE look

Happy Friday y’all. This outfit is my casual NYE look. I’ve had the same plan for years for NYE: church and a family gathering at someone’s house. This whole look was built around the glitter tights. I saw them on amazon and knew they would be perfect for NYE without doing too much. I paired them with an oversized sweater from my closet for a more casual look and I am very happy with the outcome. Hope I’ve inspired you.

The Red dress


Happy Monday Ya’ll

Excited to share my third holiday look. Its a simple red little number  from Who What Wear Collection. This dress is very flattering for every woman, specially the ones who were not blessed with any hips. I paired it with a red coat for a more minimal look. This look is perfect for church service or a nice Holiday party.


Holiday look 2


Happy Friday ya’ll.

This look is perfect for office look or after work casual holiday party. Here again I have the plaid pants which I believe can be so versatile, I paired it with a jeweled sweater and added red booties to finish the look, and just like that we have a different outfit.

Cheers to being creative with the pieces in our closet.

Closet Holiday look 1




During the Holiday Season, we often get so wrapped up in all the glitz and glamour, the sales, the gifts etc… that we do way too much,  I have done in the past and I am sure I am not the only one.  This year, I was determined not to over spend with the Holiday looks and shop my closet mostly and be creative. I bought maybe one or two items and came up with 4 looks that I will be sharing through out the week and next week. I hope to inspire you to shop your closet first, before spending your hard earned money this holiday season.

This blazer was on of my favorite purchase this past summer, I decided to pair it with my plaid pants that I’ve had for over 3 years and added the red beret to finish the holiday look; and viola new look from my closet.

You can check my instagram @grateful_femme to see my past outfits with these pieces.

Day 7 of NYFW Summer x Fall


We are on Day 7 of NYFW and it’s also my last look of the week. I had such a blast putting all these looks together, it’s been a while since I had this much fun doing fashion week and I did it purely for fun and and my own enjoyment.

This outfit is a mixture of 2 seasons: summer x fall, I paired this lovely summer dress with the red biker jacket and added the shade with the chain for a rougher look.; and i love it.

I have a show tomorrow, I am thinking of shooting one last outfit if I make it there. If I do you guys you will the first one to know.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far, one more day till the weekend.

The elegant Dress


Day 5 of NYFW. I have a substantial amount of confidence in the work that God is doing in me that makes me poised.

When I saw this dress it reminded so much of my mother, elegant and classy; so I had to get it. This dress stands out by itself the red accessory just gave it a little spice.

Hope you guys are enjoying my NYFW looks!

Be content


Day 5 of NYFW How do I say content with who I am while still eager for more:

  1. Knowing my true identity in Christ: I am already more than enough, I am dearly loved
  2. I affirm who I am daily, knowing no one can be me, I am unique
  3. I remind myself that I have destiny, everything is unfolding as it supposed to be
  4. I am honest with who I am and who I want to be, not everything or trend is for me
  5. I find my own way to release my creative juice
  6. I give my best right where I am with what I have
  7. I continue to believe no matter what I see, feel or think: God’s plan is always better than mine
  8. I celebrate other people success, it keeps my heart pure and open
  9. I support others even if they don’t support me, learning to love unconditionally or ulterior motive
  10. I make my feelings submit to my heart, I keep my motive clean & clear
  11. I find things 10 things to be grateful for, if “what about me” shows up and
  12. I remind myself that I am right where I am supposed to be.

I don’t always get all of them right but the goal is to never give up, to keep pressing no matter what. How do you stay content and eager for more?

Hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for a blessed week filled with grace.

Hope everyone have a great weekend!

Your Identity

Hello Friday, hello day 2 of fashion week. I’ve read a lot of books, listened to podcasts, sermons, studies and I’ve come to realized the only way you can truly be joyful in life and live on a solid foundation is to:

*Found your identity in Christ and live by faith

All other things are temporary, and You find yourself in a “then what” cycle. I get the job then what, I found the spouse then what, I get in the shows at fashion week then what, I wear the latest pieces then what, you will always be in this rat race until you look within and let God feel the whole. Nothing is wrong with having these things as long as they are not behind the wheel of your joy.

When you start living by faith you realized how unstable living by feelings is, because they are fickle.
