Dress and faux fur vest: Aria (n/a) // Boots: Aldo // Earrings: Aldo
One of my favorite symbols, or amulets, is the evil eye. If you watch TRHNJ you will notice most of the ladies wearing the evil eye. And taking it way back to the beginnings of the TRHOC franchise it was that infamous evil eye hat that Tamra wore to ward off Vicky. But I digress as usual.
Growing up in the Caribbean you are surrounded by spiritual tales and mysticism. We call giving someone the evil eye “hacer Mal de Ojo.” I wear it, like many do, for protection. I also love wearing the hamsa, which is the hand of God. The hamsa is more middle eastern, and the evil eye has origins in Ancient Greece, much like my dress that has a decorative greek step pattern (which trust me I’ve sat through research lectures on this pattern because it’s that historically important) vase and the figure of a greek god.
I promise this is the last winter look with my OTK’s, Ok? It does show the versatility of the pair and how much bang you can get for your dolla dolla bills.
Until the next time,
Dress: Tie Sleeve Ponte Shift Dress from Express // Boots: Aldo // Jewelry: Own
I can’t write Puffy and not think about Diddy, or “Brother Love.” Puffy just needs to accept he will always be Puffy, or Diddy in our eyes.
At any rate, this was my second look for the Christmas Party Season (now gone). On this particular day I had 4 parties to attend (not bragging), I only made it to 3. I found this dress at Express, and after rewatching seasons 1 through 7 of the RHNYC you learn that wearing black is downtown chic in NYC. All of that to say that if you are unsure of what to wear you can never go wrong with choosing the classic LBD for any special occasion.
As far as my shoe game goes my goal was to pair each look with these boots from Aldo. I already had some Vince Camuto OTK boots but they did not have the platform to up my look. So I jingled all the way with these OTKs.
I hope your holidays were very Merry and Bright! And have a very, very, very happy and prosperous 2018!!!
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,

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!

One of the most rewarding things blogging provides me is the opportunity to meet so many talented, driven, ambitious, and forward thinking people. And it doesn’t hurt that all of them are beautiful inside and out.
My involvement with Baton Rouge Fashion week for two years in a row placed new faces and labels on my radar. My favorite look of this year’s show was the t-shirt line chokolat creme. Their 2016 runway look is what I am recreating on this post. I love the message of empowerment and strength represented in this brand. And every queen needs a queen bee necklace. This set is from Olivia Palermo’s collab with Baublebar, and it is everything as is she.
Until the next post!
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!!!
This post is dedicated to Miriam “Mimi” Woodrich. She was an amazing mother, teacher, daughter, sister, wife, and friend. I heart you Mir Mir!

There are zero days left of cold weather and it is officially spring. So you know what that means huh? Awesome pastels, florals, denim is back in full throttle, fringes, and kimono tops are hot stuff. I’m not going to lie it was pretty warm wearing this sweater but I had my mind on styling this mid length skirt with it. I first saw this skirt in black on H&M’s website when their spring catalog came out in early January and it sold out in one day. That’s how big the demand is for this skirt. Wearing it makes you feel absolutely elegant and well dressed. Sure, did I feel like a chick from the 50’s? Yes. But that’s besides the point because this thing has pockets! I love pockets. They are especially amazing for bloggers who don’t know what to do with their hands; like me.
And can we talk about the color! This pink is everything this season. Call it what you want it’s simply beautiful.
I hope you are fashionable kicking into spring and getting ready for summer!

Who doesn’t LOVE Target? Am I right?!!! The prices are comparable to Walmart, no long lines, and an amazing selection of items. I am there at least once a week. The designer collaborations are also amazing, and this year 3.1 Phillip Lim is the designer collaborating with Target. Missoni collaborated with Target last year (I think) and the collection sold out immediately. But this sweater should be on your list! I first saw it on Jessica Alba and it was so adorable, but everything looks great on her right? And a week ago it was on Nikki Hilton. It’s celebrity coveted, and approved, for $29.99. And you need a comfy sweater for winter! I was going to wait and do a post with it on but why should I hold good fashionable information.
The link below the picture should take you directly to the item on target’s website, there is ONE small left in Target on Siegen lane in Baton Rouge. Just FYI. They are going fast!!
Have a fun weekend!!! XO!
