“It’s a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It’s all about the individual style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels and up and coming designers all together.” - Alexander McQueen

Hello style lovers, it’s been another fleeting week. How was yours? My friend Juaneta and I went to see comedian Shawn Wayans with some other good friends. It was a rib cracking laughter filled night. I just got home at 1am and realized I didn't schedule this post to go live at midnight. My bad.

I’m looking forward to next week. My twins, my first born babies have a birthday coming up on Tuesday the 6th at 7:36 p.m and 7:37 p.m respectively. It seems like yesterday when we gave them a big Super Sweet 16 bash, each twin inviting eight friends for an all expense paid four day trip to the Wynn Las Vegas. Phenomenal outing, great fun. 

Anyways fashion month and all it's buzz and hype, from NYC to Paris is almost over. Today I'm sharing my street style look to one of the shows. It features a black tank top, black wide leg pants and a longline vest. Icing on the cake was the statement jewelry. If you've been reading FI, then you probably know about my love affair with statement jewelry. I’m such a sucker for them shame on me. While I love them all, a particular brand has stolen my heart. Honestly I’m not complaining. They can keep my heart forever and always, hehe. 

No peeking yet but I introduced this brand to you here, here, here and for my one year blog anniversary give away here . Every one of those pieces I adorned had a wow factor to it and this was no different.You guessed it, its Takai By Angela. Did you peek?? Aaah, cheater cheater pumpkin eater, hehe. I ooh and aah at the exquisite pieces they stock. Suitable for your Spring/ Summer wardrobe as they are for your Fall/Winter wardrobe. From your most dressed up ensembles to your street style ensembles, these exciting pieces offer great versatility and will accent any and every look beautifully.

 I’ve styled some of their pieces for dressed up looks (now you may scroll back up and take a peek, haha). Today I’m showing another glam piece from Takai By Angela that will totally steal the night, any night. As I stated above, I styled this piece with a black tank top, black wide leg pants and a longline camel vest for a more casual look. I added the trending print top-knot head wrap to the mix and finished off the look with mirrored sunnies and a bag in contrasting colors. A whole different look for me but the wrap added interest and honestly much as I struggled with keeping it on and retied it probablay about 100x, I loved it so and can’t wait to do it again. Fashion truly has no rules. I could have also styled it with distressed denim and a shirt. I might have been pleasantly surprised at how cool it’d look. Now that I say that, I can’t wait to do it, :))).

Have I whet your appetite for all things Takai yet? There are pieces for every style and budget. The website is super easy to navigate so hop on over and treat yourself to an amazing piece or a few pieces. By the way they have huge sales going on every once in a while so make sure to check back OFTEN. You snooze, you lose I promise, haha. It’s also a great opportunity to snag up some beautiful pieces that will make perfect holiday gifts. Santa has started making a list and checking it twice remember? He’s also going to find out who’s naughty or nice so if you want to be gifted with these lovlies, send the website link to your significant other, strive to stay on the naughty nice list however hard that might be, and watch things happen. Get ready to be Takai’D out both now and for the holidays. Oh and you can thank me later, :))).

This is a sponsored post but all opinions are mine.
