A few weekends ago I decided to take a little break from the demands of law school and make a trip to Atlanta for Homecoming at my alma mater, Spelman College. It was a quick weekend filled with lots of fun and reuniting with old friends. I even got to hang out with Christina of LoveBrownSugar and Jessica of Glamazons Blog, who were both experiencing their first HBCU homecoming.
I tweeted and Instagram’d lots of fun pics from that weekend, but this post in particular is about the outfit I wore to that Friday night’s Black Love party. When I tweeted the picture, one of my followers pointed out that I had only spent $50 on the entire look and I have to admit, even I was like, “Whoa! I did only spend $50!” So why not turn that into a new blog segment, right? And what better place to start than where it all started!
During homecoming, most girls stick to the “short & tight” script, but I was kinda over that whole thing. I told a few people that I wanted to wear a long dress and they all gave me the “What does she think this is…prom?!” look. And you know what? It made me all the more determined to werk it out. Lol.
Get the deets…
I got this black, asymmetrical dress from KnowStyle for $20. I loved that the high neck, slinky silhouette and extra bit of leg action combined to create a sexy yet classy look.
Playing off my platinum blonde hair I opted for a pair of nude, suede peep toe pumps from Charlotte Russe. They were on sale for $15.
I wanted to edge it up just a little bit so I finished the look off with an oversized safety pin necklace that was also from KnowStyle. It was $16.
And just like that…I put this whole look together for a grand total of $51! Talk about a look for less!
What do you think?! Weigh in on my “Fab for $50″ look!

If you went to college anywhere in Atlanta, you know that during Senior Week in the AUC…we go IN! You haven’t lived until you’ve experienced Senior Week. Granted you probably won’t remember any of it, It’s still well worth the gaps in time and Facebook pics you don’t remember taking. LOL
Last night was the final party of the week and a mini reunion for the Class of 2009. I was super excited about seeing everyone and had planned to take a bunch of pictures. But about an hour into the party, that mission was aborted. 1) Because it was too packed & too hot and therefore I looked like “Ugh!” and 2) because holding a camera steady would have taken an act of god. But I do wanna show you guys the few pictures I did manage to take. (click pics to enlarge)
This time I’m serious when I say I had nothing to wear, so I just decided to do something a little different with accessories. I decided to wear just one earring that I made myself. It was fun, cute and nice arm candy is always the perfect accessory.
He’s cute right ladies?
KJ was looking rather dapper in his bow tie and tortoise shell frames.
Some my favorite Morehouse Men
***I know how this looks. But I rode with the guys and by the time I met up with the girls, picture taking was done for the night. lol
Congratulations to SpelHouse Class of 2010!!!
