Let’s talk fashion! Summer is over but, I’m still getting some awesome weather in North Carolina. Maybe we’re experiencing an Indian Summer! I can still wear shorts in this upper 80 and 90 degree weather. I saw this Black Knit Jewel Detail Top and fell in love with it at Flaunt Boutique! It was also available in White but, I went with Black because I always seem to gravitate towards black and can pair it well with almost anything. I am wearing my black knit jeweled detail top with a black tube top underneath and a pair of distressed denim shorts. I decided to wear my Jessica Bennett black jeweled strappy sandals with this ensemble. I absolutely love the detail bead work on this top, It was different to me and that’s what drew me towards it. I am totally digging this chic urban look that I can rock to a nice evening of laid back FUN or an event with a relaxed dress code! I’m always on the arts/entertainment and fashion scenes so I think this look would fit right in. So, what do you think… Was this black knit jeweled top a good choice? I also got it on SALE at 50% off, Yay!
My makeup is by the lovely Tiwa Lawrence Makeup Artist, owner of Pink Diamonds! Tiwa is an award winning make up artist that specializes in bridal makeup. Tiwa Lawrence has been featured in Essence Magazine and is always looking to excel her craft and techniques while playing with color. I always look good after a makeup session withTiwa Lawrence. My foundation & primer remain the same so I’ll dive right into the color magic that happens on eyes and lips. For my eyes : Tiwa used Urban Decay Potion, then OCC loose color in Poison (in the inner and outer lid and crease) for the middle of my eyelids she used Magnolia makeup pigment in Plumes and Nigel’s beauty lashes #46. For my lips: Tiwa used MAC Brick lip liner and MAC Peachstock lipstick. For more information on Tiwa Lawrence and to view her portfolio, check out her website.
The man behind the camera is Johnny J. Jones, event photographer, music video producer and creative director. I always love shooting on different locations with Johnny downtown “DURM” Durham, NC.

I think this is my last summer style post for a while. Fall Fashion is coming up. Until next time… Ciao!
