Bey Day

Dress: Topshop from Nordstrom //Shoes: Head Over Heals // Jewelry: Dillard’s

I’ve been wanting to do an ode to Queen B ever since Lemonade dropped last year. It took some serious cojones to drop such a heavy visual album like that. And when you think about the body of work she has created all you can do is bow down to a true queen. And then 4:44 drops and I can’t even deal! I mean….LEGACY, LEGACY, LEGACY.

So when one of my co-workers gifted me this bat (which I know what you are thinking, it’s an odd gift but when it comes to gifts I welcome them all) all I had to do was find the dress to lemonade the heck out of a post. Obvi that the dress is not Cavalli like in the video but it is the chicest brand around, Topshop.

I keep telling you guys that I have some sort of fashion ESP when it comes to predicting colors and trends so write this down when I tell you that mustard will be a pretty big deal this fall. Gah’on, take notes.

At any rate I know it’s a sort of a two for one special on September 4th but time is of the essence (cliche; sorry I ain’t sorry).

Happy Bey Day!

Until the next post,

XOXO

Double Oh Romper!

Romper: Express // Earrings: Baublebar // Shoes: Loui et Cie @ Head Over Heals

Facebook went cray a couple of weeks ago with [an epic] pic of Sean Connery in his days of 007 rocking a short romper. And so the question to all males around the world was “would you rock that?” And why not?!

Who doesn’t love a good romp…er… Focus! Clear your mind of those dirty thoughts. I am obsessed with the cold shoulder trend. So it clearly doesn’t get any better to wear a romper with a cold shoulder. Can you say showstopper? I wore this dress to someone’s graduation and it truly is the perfect summer look. Adding a touch of blush with Baublebar’s piñata tassel earrings  perfectly complemented this powder blue ensemble.

So in the heat of the summer stay cool and on trend with a cute cold shoulder anything, or a romper. If you can get both you lucked out because this look is only available online in petite.

I heart you for reading and until the next post,

XOXO

Low Romance

Blouse and Shorts: Aria // Earrings: Baublebar // Necklace: Timewarp // Booties: Head Over Heels (sale)

Happy Mardi Gras!

I had all the ingredients to make this post: green, purple, and gold. In this case the gold was more like a canary yellow, but still you get the point. And always the psychic trendsetter that I would like to think I am, you may want to mark my words when I tell you that all variations of yellow will be quite haute this spring. Write it down and go buy yourself that yellow (or mustard) blazer, dress, or top.

Romantic blouses such as this one which have a little, or in other cases a lot, of ruffles are on trend. You will see quite of few in floral prints in the upcoming weeks.

And last but not least, I absolutely love this vintage coin necklace from Time Warp boutique on Government St., in Baton Rouge.

Until the next post!

XOXO,

V Day

Hay girl (or boy) hay it’s Valentines Day!

In past years I have griped of no one wearing red or pinks on this day but this year I find myself being a little hypocritical. Let me explain. We all understand the over commercialization of the holidays. We get it. But it certainly gives bloggers, social media coordinators, and communications professionals something to post.

As I was shopping for others yesterday I found myself telling those helping me find something “I don’t want anything too big, or too expensive. I honestly think this day is a little silly.” I think morally we should always strive (lord knows I am NOT perfect and that my attitude is not always 100) to think of others, offer help when needed, and give without any expectations of the other person giving you something in return. That’s the way it should be. Now, do not get me wrong because the flip slide to this story is that I strongly believe in establishing boundaries and respect among friends. And you know sometimes people tend to over care, over share, and over step. Word to the wise. #stayinyourlane

BUT…. that is not what this post is about. Last year the off the shoulder trend dominated the summer and it is fascinating how strongly it has transgressed through the winter/fall. This winter, still, it is all about the shoulders. Whether it is off the shoulder or a cold shoulder, it is undeniable that this style is a dominant one right now.

I love everything about this topshop top. The style, the powder pink color, and the trumpet sleeves. The opposite of skinny jeans are these high waisted bell bottom jeans, which if worn with a high enough heel elongates your body. And I am obsessed with the tassel trend in jewelry. I find myself in the constant hunt for tassel necklaces and earrings. These hot pink ones just give me life.

Anyways, I have said too much. On the real and for realzies my wish for you is to have a wonderful day filled with love and laughter. And hey, a gift or two here and there would not be so bad, eh?

Until the next post, CIAO CIAO loves. Happy Valentines Day!

XOXO,

P.S. How beautiful was Beyoncé’s performance at the Grammy’s!!! She was a byzantine beauty and a goddess in her own right. And Blue Ivy stole my heart!!!

Off the Shoulder off the Hook

Dress: Express // Sandals: Head Over Heals// Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Earrings: Baublebar

I know it’s been a while. For obvious, and not so obvious, reasons July happened to be a very rough month. But we rise stronger and better from all those rough bumps and curveballs that this thing called life (RIP Prince) throws at us.

Now, if you do not own this summer an off the shoulder top or dress, to you I say in the words of Kimmy Schmidt: “where the H-E- double hockey sticks have you been?!” At least she has a better excuse (mole woman held hostage in a bunker by an unimaginably unattractive Jon Ham). When I tell you after not finding this denim off the shoulder beaut in our Mall of Louisiana, I immediately placed a call and an interstate dash to Tanger Mall to find this amazing dress. It’s denim people!! Denim!!!

Gladiator style sandals like these (on sale at Head Over Heals) make a consistent appearance every summer.

I hope you are having an amazingly fun hot summer. I am extremely grateful for those of you who continue to come back to Foster the Fashion for more posts.

I heart y’all!!!

XOXO,

This week: OBRFW 3

obrfw_bignightobrfw_bignight_back

It is surreal how much I feel time slipping through my hands (btw great start to a future Mariah Carey song, dontcha think? I heart you Mimi!). In all honesty it seems like just the other day, I alongside a group of beautiful and talented ladies served as judges for the selection of models for Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion week season 3.

Today, OBRFW 3 is rolling onto its second day showcasing BARE, a sexy take on fashion that introduces an array of edgy, exotic, looks for your eyes to feast on. Tickets for tonight are sold out but if you want to “dip it and do it,” like my fave talk show host Wendy Williams does in the club, you can still get tickets for “The Big Night” here. “The Big Night” is when all the fashion kids come out and play, and “Yaaasss honey Yaassss,” I will be there to say “How you doing?”

XOXO,

Happy Valentines Day! Or Galentines Day!

There is nothing lovelier than a nice ballroom gown skirt. It’s such a stunning fashion statement. The minute you see it on someone else you can’t help but gasp in awe and admiration. At least I did when I saw it on Bonnie Michelle, designer and creator of lovely pieces from her Scar Collection.

But what I really want to talk about today are my rings courtesy of Jordan Dudden founder and creator of JoJo Rings. JoJo Rings are made from 100% recycled keys. Founded in 2015, Dudden started her creative empire while  attending Syracuse University in my favorite state with my favorite city, New York. Behind every key there is a good deed, as some of the profits go to nonprofit organizations in the New York area. So if you love feel good jewelry that makes a fashionable statement please check them out here. I love my gold tone round key ring!!

I hope that you have a beautiful day and that not only this day but EVERY DAY is filled with love!!

XOXO!
