Betsessory Haul Pt. 2

“#Photography is the story I fail to put into words.”— Destin Sparks ? #BetseyBabe

A post shared by Sherece?? (@fatshionforward) on


I can’t leave the house without some form of purse to carry my life around in. I use to be popular in school for carrying oversize designer totes. Now that I’m out of school and working I try to keep it light with a small kitsch bag that holds my essentials. If my portable charger, wallet, roller ball perfume, lipstick, keys and headphones fit we’re good to go.  Kitsch bags are great conversation starters they are the epitome of the statement bag and Betsey Johnson does it oh so well. The camera Kitsch bag was a birthday gift from my mom. Great gift for a blogger or photographer. 


My addiction for leopard print doesn’t quit and Betsey enables is. Betsey really knows how to attract a girl’s wild side. This vintage “Leopard Lips” Betseyville bag was a Poshmark purchase. I also got my “Call Me Maybe” telephone bag from Poshmark, I put up quite a negotiation for it. Best part is the phone really works, plug it in and talk or use it as a speaker and play some music. Your phone controls the volume !

Something special that I noticed about Betsey Johnson is that her designs almost always have a special hidden feature that is kind of like a surprise just for you. Whether it’s a silky floral printed lining in a handbag or her famous signature on the zipper pull. She likes to add little details that really make each piece that much more special.

Last but not least my pom pom kicks. These babies came out during the pom pom fad, which has been traded in for pearls this season. Zapp slip on sneakers are available in black and blue. Shop BetseyJohnson.com now! and receive 30% off site wide plus get free shipping. Just use the code BYE2017  at checkout. Happy Shopping ?

WHAT I WORE TO THE DINNER

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #77: Something New
My family was in town so we all got together and went to Sushi & Grill Restaurant for dinner.  Since we we’re trying some new food, I was inspired to try a new look. I’ve been dying to wear this new skirt I made, so I based the look around it. I purchased this lavender color fabric in the Spring during a trip to NYC. I fell in love with the fabric’s subtle giraffe print and soft hand.  Last week blogger and designer Mone convinced me to try pastel colored lipstick. I thought this look would be the perfect time to bust out  my NYX lavender lippie I bought at the Make Up Show Orlando earlier this year.Keeping the train rolling with these fashion firsts,  I accessorized my look with a black knit turban, pointed toe flats and Betsey Johnson Camera Kitsch Bag. Kitsch Camera bag was a gift  birthday gift from my mom, it’s been one of my most steady summer accessories. The cross body strap allows hands free carrying which I love when I’m on the go. I can have my hands free to snack, take selfies, or text. I fell in love with the turban it added a cultured yet chic element to the look, this piece will definitely be a repeat offender.  Tank: Ross | Skirt: Fatshion Forward (by me) | Handbag: Betsey Johnson | Shoes: Charlotte Russe | Lipstick: NYX Pin Up Pout Lippie (Wisteria – Neon Lavender)

Fashion’s Favorite Jacket

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #70: The Olive Bomber
Pilot’s Uniform or fashions favorite outerwear trend? “The Olive Bomber” has caught on like wildfire over the past year. It’s a year round closet staple because of it’s minimalist charm. The versatility makes the bomber easy to wear season after season. Jacket can be paired with so many looks from a two piece set like I’m wearing to jeans and a plain tee for a more casual approach. I’ve also seen it paired with striped midi dresses or kept simple with a LBD and sneakers. Once this trend got picked up by celebrities and supermodels as their “off-duty” look that’s all it took to go viral. The Olive Bomber offers effortless street style and gives the athleisure aesthetic a luxe update. The Bomber trend has recycled for so many seasons that brands are having my for with the designs. I’ve seen bomber style jackets in faux fur, satin, jersey, over-sized, floral print, lace, sheer or accessorized with patches. That combinations are endless really with the versatility of the jacket.I accessorized look with jewelry from Betsey Johnson. Stud earring is shaped like a caption bubble and spell “xox” in the center. Fashion gold nameplate “Betsey” necklace from Betsey Johnson’s NYFW Spring ’13 Ready-To-Wear Show. Necklace was a anniversary gift from my finance, he supports my Betsy addiction lol

School Girl Style

OUTFIT OF THE DAY #68: Monster University 

Lippie: Colour Pop “DR. M”

For almost half of my grade school education I attended a private school and had to wear a full uniform daily. Oxford shirt, sweater vest, plaid skirt, tie, socks and dress shoes. When I moved and started attending public school, I didn’t know what to wear. It took me a while to edit my personal style which is still constantly adapting. This post is dedicated to the younger me, my inner school girl. Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Betsey Johnson Earrings: Left Side Chains, Beads & Black 2-D Eiffel Tower // Right Side: Rhinestones & Pink 3-D Eiffel Tower

I was gifted this adorable monster backpack for Christmas by one of my friends. Everyone who know me knows about my Betsey Johnson obsession. This mini backpack inspired my entire look, who says you can’t choose your accessories before your outfit. Originality hasn’t always been in style but growing up I really disliked wearing the same look as someone else. (Hence why I don’t like who wore it best lists). I don’t mind wearing the same piece but I wear it my own way I don’t believe in store styled outfits. I’m all about embracing your personal style and showing off your unique aesthetic, which is exactly what I did with this look.

I wore a white button up shirt dress with a floral lace inserts along the sleeves and across the back. This shirt dress is my latest thrift find and features flower shaped buttons. I added gold collar pins to the shirt neckline at gift the plain shirt a more luxe vibe. I completed the look with basic black stretch leggings from Rainbows and my suede pom pom slip on sneakers. I chose the backpack and bold lipstick to break up the black and white. It can become a snooze feast without a pop of color or a print some where. 

Last but not least my accessory of the day is the “Only Exception” necklace by the band Paramore. Paramore’s music is the first thing my fiancee and I really bonded over. He bought me this necklace for our 5th anniversary from Paramore’s gift shop. Necklace will restock but does sell out fast so keep your eyes glued to there site if you want one. Gold tone necklace features a engraved locket as pendant.
