Rated Next: Bohemian Style Trends

So what's next on the style trend radar? The Bohemian style. Yes the Bohemian style ladies - it's not just for hippies anymore. I've been searching across the web and talking to some of my favorite fashion blogger friends and it looks the the "Boho" look is in. The celebs are adapting this look into their closets and so that means that the fashion innovators and trendsetters will be rockin it next.

Called Boho for short, the Bohemian look is earthy and layered, with loose, flowing fashions and accessories that are often made from natural materials like linen and gauzy cotton, wood, stones and leather. Woven items are popular and so are beads that are used in jewelry and to decorate purses, belts or anything else.

Tunics work over skirts or pants and can be loosely belted if you like. Vintage jewelry and fashions always have a place in a Bohemian ensemble.
Here are some different ways you can put together a modern bohemian look:

Check my footwork: Shoes of the week

Hey ladies!!! Y'all know what time it is!! Browsing the web for the sexiest, trendiest shoes is probably my favorite thing to write about.. well.. besides handbags... I am probably the BIGGEST accessory person ever. If I had to make a choice between accessories and clothes, I'd choose accessories in a heartbeat. Because as we all know that your accessories make the outfit!!

First up: The ASOS leather gladiator sandals.... yeah these babies are hot!!! I saw them on Sex and the City (of course) and fell in loooveeeee..... I almost jumped out of my chair when I seen them on one of my favorite shopping sites ASOS -

Next up: The Tatiana Peep Toe Pump by Betsey Johnson... I love these shoes because you can pair them up with hot jeans, a nice suit, or with a sexy dress to the club. With gas prices at a $1000 a gallon.. it's nice to be able to have a nice shoes that you can get multiple uses out of. You can grab a pair at your local Nordstrom or if you don't have one you can go to

The Moschino Satin Peep Toe pump is probably my favorite shoe of the week!! I am really into the deep blue or should I say "cobalt" blue color. I love the bow detail on the front as well. Again, this is another shoe that you can rock for work or play. As Weezy (Lil Wayne) says this shoe is "addicted to winter time - HOT". (sorry I just always wanted to say that lol)
Grab a pair at

Last, but definitely not least. The Nine West Ankle Strap Sandal. I love the purple and silver combination of this shoe. The berry color is excellent for all seasons but especially summer and fall. I love all the straps, there are just enough straps so that it does not look like a stripper shoe (no diss intended). This shoe is another multi purpose shoe. You can wear it anywhere. Want a pair? Go to or

Style Spy: My favorite looks from the 2008 BET Awards

I really liked this dress!!! I am still unsure of whether this is something that she should have worn. You can see the girdle through her dress.. Not that we all don't wear girdles -- but the point is for it NOT to be obvious.... Maybe if she would have worn some jewelry around her neck - it would have taken the attention away from the girdle... or maybe not??????? The dress is hot though!!!
I like Toccara's dress.. I think that boob is annoying me though........... I like this dress on Ashanti - but it's definitely not something that I'd rock. Just because I'm really not into the whole slit thing anymore.
I love all the yellow on these ladies... I really liked Keyshia's Cole's dress....
I don't think I am digging Cassie's look too much... it looks like she want to forever 21 and jazzed it up.. maybe it's just me???? Chrisette Michelle looks gorgeous.....
I loved Solange's dress... I need something like that for my closet!!!!! Time to search!!! Check out Lil Kim's bag... I LOVE IT!!!!
Yaay or Naay? - Let's take a vote: who really likes these shoes????

What can I say? Rhianna has been killing the game this year already. We already knew that she would come looking hot!!

Lisa Raye looking absolutely gorgeous with the gold jump off. It looks very sexy on her!!
I absolutely love this Vneck bubble hem dress on Nia Long. That cut is ULTRA Fab and ULTRA sexy! I even like how the side gathers to accentuate the hips.

My favorite of the night: Alicia Keys. I think she looked hot in all of her wardrobe's. I especially like this hot pink strapless dress. This is hot!!!

I love this yellow dress. Very Trendy!!
I REALLY liked the white one piece jumpoff that Keisha had on with the knee high boots. Very sexy........
I've read alot of blogs where people are dogging this dress that Keisha had on, but, I really liked it. I like how it flows and the colors are gorgeous. I think the top of the dress throws it off though. Kinda looks like a wifebeater with a skirt. I don't know.....
I like the dress, but I really posted this photo because I am digging her shoes. Oh and this is Kid Sister for those of you who don't know who she is (I know I didn't) lol!!

Maternity Style

Over the past 6 months, I've been blessed with new babies coming into my life. All of my best friends are having or had children this year. Of course they all always ask me why I never write anything about trends in maternity clothes. Of course, I don't have any children (and don't plan on having any for a while) so I don't know the first thing about being fly while pregnant. I checked around the web for some good pregnancy advice and found some very good tips from Isabella Oliver online maternity store in the UK. Here are the tips they gave:
Don't delay
Well-designed maternity clothing will last a whole pregnancy with over 2 seasons of fashion. Choose iconic maternity designs to flatter you from early pregnancy to at least 3 months after birth. The sooner you buy, the more chance you have to mix and accessorise your new maternity wardrobe creating different looks. A capsule wardrobe is a great place to start.

Avoid trimester specific buying
Avoid buying pieces that only give you a few weeks of pregnancy wear. Our signature designs feature wrapping and ruching to create a neat fitted look that grows with you throughout your pregnancy. Learn how to wrap perfectly and discover the secrets of ruching with our online videos.

Don't lose your sense of style

You know what suits you. Take inspiration from your current wardrobe and pick maternity wear versions of your favourite looks. Add accessories like shoes, bags and sunglasses to key in to the season's trends. For fresh ideas see Our favorites, customers' Best sellers and what's new.

Bigger is not better

Wearing 'his' clothing is a maternity mistake we all make. Tops fall off your shoulders, sag behind, and hang off your bump like a tablecloth. You lose your elegant silhouette and look (and feel) bigger than you are. And regular clothes need to go up a size each month to fit your bump. That's why maternity designs that grow with you are better for your self-esteem and your budget.

Delight in the details
Pick maternity clothes that highlight the best parts of your pregnant body, like sexy curves and radiant skin. Designer details, side ruching and long wrap ties will help clothes grow with you creating that neat fit during pregnancy and for months to come as your body regains its shape.
Think about the fabric Look for fabrics that give you comfort and performance in pregnancy and the 4th Trimester when you'll wear and wash clothes more intensely than ever. Quality is key. That's why we use superior pregnancy friendly fabrics that stretch, let your skin breathe and are more durable than non-maternity wear.

Be clever with color
Introduce chic maternity clothes to your existing wardrobe to form a capsule collection. Black, white and neutrals always work for any occasion. Add a splash of colour with key pieces including reversible maternity designs that add contrast details and twice the palette to choose from.
