$ won’t let you keep up with clothing trends?

 I remember casually going out after work one evening to decompress and be amongst THE HAPPY at “happy hour”. Of course this was pre-COVID when outside was open and we left our homes for more than the bare necessities. I digress. Back to the story. I always preferred to go home, quickly freshen up, throw on one of my staples before darting out the door to ensure I arrived within the “happy” hours. I mean, I might be late but I am here and I am clean! I arrived at the venue, greeted my group and commenced the decompression. As I looked around, I noticed that there were at least five women in the same staple outfit: a simple black top of varying sleeve lengths and blue jeans. How could I blame them?  I had the same idea.   After all, some millionaires have also made  the same look a staple.  The good news; I had found my tribe! The bad news; I never liked uniforms. 

 Staying stylish on a budget can be challenging! It is a fun challenge for those who not only enjoy the thrill of the hunt but also have time to sift through discount racks, thrift stores, and shop sales. For others, it’s a daunting, time consuming task that can be discouraging. Either way, you shouldn’t have to buy new clothes every season! Have you tried to enhance any humdrum outfit or your go-to looks with unique statement jewelry? Try it today! You don’t have to go anywhere. Practice for when outside opens up again or just make it a part of your self care. Choose a top, I am partial to black as stated above but you don’t have to wear my uniform. Then pick out a bold necklace and some statement earrings! Finish the look with a beautiful hand painted chunky bracket. Now look in the mirror and love what you see!

 Don’t have statement jewelry or need more? Then might I suggest some of the pieces from our store?

 Keep scrolling to see  how some of our collectors (Smiles Tribe) have slayed the black top or casual black dress with statement jewelry!

Found this randomly and found it very helpful.👏🏾I always wanted to wear stuff like this but never thought it was practical. I just didn’t have the vision. 🤣 smh. 🤷🏾‍♀️ But now I know I can wear this stuff with my boring clothes.🤣😄


Thanks for starting this blog and sharing with us. I’m partial to Black as well, and I totally agree that you don’t have to buy a whole new wardrobe each season. Some of my best outfits were those with very little thought of being over the top, in exchange for simplicity and unique! Why not jazz things up with some smiles😘 made by you❤❤


Love love love the message and amazing looks, Black is BEAUTIFUL!!!
