Are you on Pinterest? Well, if you're not, say good-bye to your sleep and join in on all the phone. Okay. Okay. So you don't have to look through Pinterest boards until 3AM like I do, but it is a great place to find inspiration. Whether you're looking for home decor ideas, DIY projects, fashion inspiration or makeup looks; you'll find it all on Pinterest and on my Pinterest page!

Dress: Calvin Klein // Shawl: Unknown // Shoes: Via Spiga // Necklace: KidzCanDesign // Bracelet: Rebecca Minkoff // Rings: Shop Prima Donna
I'm a New Yorker. And if there is one thing New Yorkers love, it's dressing in black. I show off that NYC style even while I visiting New Orleans with this black-on-black outfit of the day.
Here I am wearing a black Calvin Klein sheath dress. It's embellished with 8 rows of black rivets across the waist. I added a black belt with a black buckle to cinch in my waist.
I've also added a black shawl to help keep me warm as the temperature begins to cool. Shawls are such an elegant and unique way to keep warm and supplement a look with an interesting detail.
I also find it quite fun to wear them in different ways. The possibilities are endless!
I finished the look with silver toned jewelry, including a bracelet by Rebecca Minkoff (you can see it here), some Prima Donna rings and my Kidz Can Design necklace (see it here).
I'm also wearing my black patent leather Via Spiga heels. I'm obsessed with black patent leather shoes and these are one of my favorites. They're peep-toed and have two straps that buckle across the feet.The heels also curve inward for yet another eye-catching characteristic.
How do you like to wear all black?

Dress: Maggy London // Shoes: Michael Kors // Bag: Tory Burch // Jewelry: Prima Donna, Margaret Elizabeth via RocksBox and Chanel
It's no secret. I love lace. Nothing is quite as classic and as delicately feminine as lace. This dress shows off my full appreciation for my favorite material and more.
This great black dress is by Maggy London. The beige lining underneath really makes the beautiful of the fabric really pop. I love the sweet keyhole found at the collar. It's such a great detail that I didn't find the need to wear a necklace.
The skirt is an a-line and pleated bottom. Can it get any more classic than that?! The black leather belt that the dress comes with, along with the skirt's shape, really helps cinch in the waist and emphasizes a woman's curves.
I'm holding one of my favorite handbags, a Tory Burch cross body bag. It's made of black leather, features a logo medallion on the flap and has a thick chained strap. I accessorized with Prima Donna gold-toned rings and a gold Chanel charm bracelet. This is by far my favorite high-low fashion look since the holidays!
I added my Michael Kors nude pumps to finish the look off. These shoes are one of my most preferred work-to-night shoes. They look great with any office look because of the classic and timeless style and color, but you can also easily wear them with evening looks. That's what I call a two-for-one!
I kept my makeup simple with nude eye shadows. I added a pop of color with my Always Red Sephora lips stain. As you can see, I'm also wearing the Margaret Elizabeth studs I purchased from last month's RocksBox delivery.

On today, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I'm happy to see and share that his message still lives through the work of millions of people who live by his words or ideals. You can especially see his influence in political and social hiphop from around the world. Read more about this amazing movement in my husband's latest co-edited book, The Organic Globalizer: Hip Hop, Political Development and Movement Culture.
