Hey kings and queens! I have to tell you guys about my little secret right now. I have an obsession. Seeing everything in a gradient form from shorts, shirts, pants, to hair, the ombre effect has my heart and is for sure taking this summer season by storm.
Here are some of my favorite looks in the ombre style, along with pictures of my own hair.
I am quite thrilled about the challenge I have for this week. Two of my new lady friends want me to do their hair in ombre and I am a little nervous! I have only done Nonee’s hair and my own.. That’s fine. But these ladies have hair as long as the China Wall and I don’t want to mess it up. Their locks are so healthy and shiny and long and just beautiful. Lord be with me! I’m thinking about doing a DIY Ombre Hair Edition with my two girlies as my models., in which would be super fun. But man, haha. I just pray it turns out well because if it does, I will begin to keep dying hair for friends Let’s see what God is cooking.
Have a great Sunday loves!
God is love. Show it!

Hello Beautiful People!
I’m once again excited to announce our SECOND Fashion Blogger Featurette! We haven’t done one since February and I hope to start making this a monthly thing! Maybe even weekly! What do you all think?
This is Miss Cortnie Elizabeth! She is the blogger behind STYLE LUST PAGES & the creator of the stylish LOVE, CORTNIE clutches. I found Cortnie’s blog thru a blogger who was wearing one of the Love, Cortnie clutches in a post. Her clutches are prints and patterns that you have never seen on any clutch or purse before and that’s what makes them so awesome! Once I added her blog to my bi-daily (yes I said bi-daily meaning every other day lol) reads I noticed that her style is amazingly simplistic but she adds statement pieces that take the whole outfit from a 5 on the cool and laid back scale to a 25! Whether its a pair of BAD platforms or pumps with a patterned heel or Maxi Skirt with one of her BOLD clutches she always makes the outfit work!
So we caught up through e-mail and asked a few questions that we figured everyone would want to know!
Press Forward: Where are you from? What do you do?
Cortnie: I was born and raised in Maryland. Currently, I’m making my handbags full-time.
PF: Do you attend school, if so what is your major?
Cortnie: I’ve been out of school for 5 years now. I graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park. There I majored in Kinesiology. I thought I wanted to get into Physical Therapy. Wrong. A couple of months after I graduated I moved to California to attend the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. I got a second degree in Merchandise Marketing.
PF: Awesome! What are your career goals?
Cortnie: I would love to see my clutches sold in stores all across the country. That would be amazing.
PF: What made you want to start making clutches? & What made you want to start a fashion blog?
Cortnie: They both kind of just happened. The blog came about almost 3 yrs ago with a main purpose to showcase my styling escapades. It became more of a style blog pretty quickly. I started making clutches about 9 months ago for fun. The bags I imagined carrying I could never find in stores. So I started making them myself. Turned out that people really liked them and I’ve been growing ever since. My blog and clutch-making go hand-in-hand. It was a great platform that allowed me to share with people once I started sewing.
PF: Where do you pull most of your inspiration?
Cortnie: Everywhere! Trends, magazines, tv, or maybe someone I meet while I’m out.
PF: People in the fashion industry view fashion as an art! Are there any other forms of art that you “loose yourself” in? Music, paintings, plays, etc.
Cortnie: Who doesn’t love music?! Everyone has heard at least 1 song they could relate to. Sewing keeps me pretty busy though.
PF: How do you manage to effectively run your blog and making your purses and do everything else your life consists of?
Cortnie: Time management is so important. I usually set up my blog posts ahead of time so I’m not scrambling when I want to post them. It definitely helps when I have orders that need to be completed.
PF: Where do you see yourself AND your blog in five years?
Cortnie: I see my bags expanding, but as for my blog? I’m not sure. I can still see myself blogging in 5 years. As long as I still enjoy it I’ll still be blogging.
PF: What advice would you give someone new to the fashion blogging world?
Cortnie: Stay true to yourself and have fun with it. Blogging takes a lot of time and dedication.
PF: Who inspires you the most?
Cortnie: My mom! She’s one of the kindest people I know. I don’t know where I’d be without her.

“If I have done anything, it is to make ugly appear appealing.”
I really want to be a rockstar. A hip rockstar. I don’t know why, but when urban styles come together, mixed with class and sophistication, I can see myself.
Here is a little inspiration collage from polyvore I came up with
Looking at that dress, I discovered that my favorite color is blue. And when I really think about it, this matter was obvious. All hues of the spectrum amaze me in some way or another, in which I guess that’s why I never really preferred a certain color. But TO ME, no one can ever go wrong with something blue. Any shade or tint of blue will make you look and feel cool. No pun intended
Have a great day loves!

This has been a crazy start to my summer. The minute I finished finals I have been busy. I have so many things I want to get done as well as being busy with my internship and working. But I always try and find time to deliver new posts to our readers!
I wore this outfit to church yesterday. I love when I can put something together in like 5 minutes and it looks great! I just recently dyed my hair purple black with blonde in the back.
This is my final color job until August and maybe longer. I’m going heatless for about two and a half months so don’t be shocked when you see my hair big crazy styles. 0_0
Outfit Det’s: Top & Pants – Thrifted, Shoes – Bakers, Jewelry – F21
Hope everyone has a great week!
