My Style: Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone with Addictions Boutique

In the words of Kanye…. Sunglasses and Advil, last night was mad real!

Last night, I hung out with my girls and we had a ton of fun. I had no clue what I was going to wear then I remembered I had a hot dress that was given to me from Dannie at Addictions Boutique! While, I have no qualms about rocking a short dress I never wear fitted dresses. I mean I’ve lost a lot of weight but I’m still self-conscious about those last few pounds and in true girl fashion, I gain all my weight in my stomach. Getting ready last night I ran into a huge dilemma, I had nothing to wear! I looked at the dress that I got from Addictions, the dress looked back at me and I said hell why not! I grabbed my dress and the appropriate undergarments and it was on after that!

Needless to say the dress was a hit!

I paired it with my Red Shoes from Steve Madden… These shoes are a force by themselves but the 2 of them together was nothing short of ATTENTION GETTING!

I grabbed my Furla Candy Bag and hit the streets for a night out on the town….

Unfortunately, my girls and I ended up in a place where you can’t take pictures the picture above is all I got. The experience with my dress taught me to continue to step out of my comfort zone and try new things when it comes to fashion and ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS wear the appropriate undergarments and check yourself in a full length mirror.

Another thing I picked up recently from Addictions were these earrings…

I first debuted these earrings during New York Fashion Week and they were such a big hit! I’m all about statement pieces and these were just what I was looking for.

If you are in the market for some hot pieces to add to your wardrobe make sure you stop by Addictions Boutique for more info go here!

For all those who have been inquiring about my hair it was done by Extension Guru Trayce Madre and I’m wearing her Luxury Hair Line…
