I recently published a fall fashion haul in collaboration with BooHoo.com. In that fall I picked out some if my fall wardrobe favorites. One of my top picks was this animal print trench coat. I love a good print and this trench coat fit the bill. Now, although this piece wears better as a duster coat. The airy feel of this cover up feels great as a second layer. Since filming this haul video I have been obsessed with finding another trench coat to add to my collection. Something a bit heavier and a tab bit more color. So, I’ve been on the hunt and came across so really cute options for this fall.
This is the time of year for holiday parties and family gathers are on heavy rotation. I know I personally have a few holiday events on my schedule that call for chic dresses and glittery accessories. I had the opportunity to partner with BooHoo.com on today’s video. I selected a few fall pieces to add to my wardrobe and decided to may it a try haul style video. Of course the day I decided to try all these items on for you all its extremely cold. So I hope you appreciate my effort because a sista was freezing outside trying to be cute. BooHoo was kind enough to offer my readers 55% off their entire purchase by using promo code CHIMERENICOLE at checkout. Yes, you read that correctly, 55% off.

When I think of the perfect dress I think of three important things, style, comfort, and price. It’s extremely important to me that my clothes are figure flattering as well as chic. You truly don’t have to break the bank with designer pieces in your wardrobe in order to look stylish. Now let’s talk numbers shall we. I have been known to spend a pretty penny on my essentials in my wardrobe only because they are investment pieces or items I will multiple times throughout the years. So, what if there was a dress that you could wear all season, is figure flattering, and under $40? Yes, it does exist and I happen to own a few in multiple colors.
This long sleeve knit body con dress is one of the most comfortable pieces in my wardrobe. For those days when you’re not feeling so skinny or PMS has set in this is my go to. It ideal for all body types that why I believe it the perfect dress for the season. I also love that with a simple change of your shoes and or handbag this dress can be transformed from day to night. It’s so versatile. I have seen different variations of this dress however I like that on this particular dress it shows a bit more of the shoulders for more of a feminine touch. Check out this dress in three different colors below. If you looking for some more Fall attire visit my previous post HERE to get more inspiration.
Thanksgiving is a time for food, fun, and family. It’s actually one of my favorite holidays because you get to catch up with family and of course the food. It’s my excuse to eat all the stuffing I want and not think twice. With that being said, it’s also the holiday where you dress up to look cute sitting on the living room couch. I know I’m not the only one to do this. It’s so funny because my family knows I’m going to be snapping and tweeting away all day so if they don’t dress appropriately then well… This year I wanted to share with you some cute and stylish options for the holiday season. Manly because they offer the perfect amount of stretch and are affordable. Don’t forget to sign up for the VIP mailing list for additional promotional code.
This past week I took a business trip to Los Angeles. It wasn’t a long stay but very productive nonetheless. I can’t wait to share with you very soon the next project I’m working on. One thing you should always know about me is my inability to sit still. A girl got major goals and I plan on achieving each and every last one. In between my meetings I had a little time to run around downtown LA for a few pictures. As I said my schedule was booked pretty tight so I took as many pictures as I could. I’ve been trying to live in the moment as much as possible and that means leaving the blogging camera home.
Walmart Clothing Haul
Happy Monday beautiful people! I feels like such a long time since I sat down to actually write a physical blog post. I’m trying to get some things in order in my personal life and it has been time consuming to say the least. I have been planning and organizing the end of my year and that includes adding more content to my blog as well as my YouTube channel. Although this cold weather is killing my vibe, I’m finding ways to work around that.
Today I have an exciting post to share as it is a fashion haul. These videos are so fun to make because I get to share with you my fashion finds as well as how I style each piece. I took a trip to my local Walmart and found some cute and inexpensive wardrobe stables. My budget was only $100 and Walmart did not disappoint. Take a look at today’s video and try out my Walmart challenge. You will be surprised at what you find.
Yesterday the beauty community lost a wonder soul yesterday and I want to dedicate today’s post to her, Kyrzayda. She was truly a fashion icon and wonderful inspiration to everyone in the beauty and fashion industry. The legacy she leaves behind is one of grace, style and strength. Cancer is a terrible disease and she allowed us to follow along as she battled and SHE WON her fight. She left us too soon but we know heaven has gained a true angel. She will be missed by many.
The fall is upon us and I still have summer vibes around my home and office. I’m just not ready to give up the warm weather. Although I’m ready for all the flavored lattes and cute boots, I’m not quite ready to put the opened toe shoes away. I LOVE open toe shoes and slides. So today I decided to take it back to this cute jumper I wore last month. Not only was this jumper cute, I was also able to drop down and get my twerk on lol. Yes, you know I tried… That’t just what I do.
This piece is from ClosetSheIn and its a top seller. The amount of stretch it gives makes it so comfortable. I also love the fact that it gives me curves in all the right places. Let’s just say you couldn’t tell me NO THANG lol. I thought I was in a video while I was taking this images lol. You really can’t take me anywhere and expect me to be serious for to long. I like to laugh and have fun. On a serious note, the passing of Kyrzayda has really tought me to live each day like it’s your last. Tomorrow is not promised and so I’m off to do just that. I hope you plan on doing the same today. Live your best life, XO!

Today is the day, a day of celebration, reflection, and thankfulness. It’s my birthday! I am over the moon excited. Honestly, not for the gifts or the praise but for the air that I breathe. I know a lot of people who did not live to see this milestone and I’m beyond blessed to be able to celebrate life today. I like to spend my birthday mornings with just me and my thoughts. That’s a little harder to do these days as my girls are just as excited to celebrate my birthday as I am. I’m expecting a few songs and dance moves this morning. I try my best to let my birthday be as peaceful and relaxing and do all the celebrating on the weekend. This year I planned a day of shopping and a weekend of dancing. Remember the blog post from this Monday where I discussed goal setting and removing goals from the list. That is my plan this weekend and I can’t wait to share with you what the big plans are. They are quite “colorful”.
I wanted to do something a little different as it relates to birthday pictures this year. As you know by now I deemed this week Chimere’s week. Yes, I celebrated all week. Why not? Any who, I wanted to do grown and sexy for this years pictures but still keep it classy and for me that always means black. No matter how hard I try I can’t stray too far away from the color black. I love this dress because it hugs your curves just right and the train is gorgeous. It was a tad bit hard to walk upstairs with it but after you master the extra fabric you will love it. I haven’t worn a red lip in so long I decided to wear a throwback favorite, Mac’s Ruby Woo. Any avid makeup lover has this in their collection. I actually have three. Don’t judge me lol. I kept this look simple and paired it with my favorite patent leather pumps and a bracelet. I actually lift my ring at home but hey, I think I still pulled it off. I will be sure to enjoy this day and spend it with the people I love, let’s celebrate!
