B.A.D. Girl Style: Celebrating OPC in Velvet & Leather

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending my Sorority’s Soft Elegance Banquet celebrating our 25th Anniversary! It was a magical night with so much love and pride in the air. I am so proud to be a sister of the FIRST true Multicultural Sorority in the nation. Happy 25 Years Omega Phi Chi Sorority! Here are some pics from the amazing night!

Style Series: The Winter seasons latest trend is velvet; are you crushing or cringing?

Being a dancer for many years allowed me to wear velvet countless times, but as a costume. I was surprised to see velvet making a comeback and I actually think it’s a cute trend for winter. Velvet is soft and comfy and reminds me of  dressing up for the holidays as a child.  I found some cute velvet items I think you might enjoy. If embracing an entire velvet dress isn’t in your closets future, why not try a pair of flats or a bag?  There are also items like the red skirt below that only use velvet as an accent or trim. These  items will allow you to still be trendy without feeling like you are about to perform a ballet routine. 😉 1. Crush Velvet Scoop Neck Dress at Forever 21 -$17.80 2.
