The winner is Monica M.

It wouldn't be Valentines Day with out a little pop of pink (feel free to take that as you will).  And since Day 1 has velvet,  Day 2 has leopard and Day 3 has wild hearts, I thought that it was about time for something pink and girly for this 5 days of  V Day  GIVEAWAYS.   This little La Mer Collections beauty is edgy yet girly .. perfect combo if you ask me.

GIVEAWAY Day 2. 2 sets from Adore Me lingerie ..Ends February 14, 2014



The Winner is Andrea Darst @Adarst213
When this adorable set arrived at my doorstep from Adore Me.. I had this awesome idea of how I wanted to shoot it.   I was going to lay the set out and make it all pretty with some cool props.. and then I thought to myself..

Taye you better throw that set on and be proud!!

...and that's exactly what I did.  Let me tell you, this was such a fun shoot.   I recommend that everyone woman at least once in their life be photographed in her undies in front of a big window as people walk by.. It's quite liberating!

I give you...

 There is something about wearing clothes that you know come from love.. 


I had the opportunity to tour the Gypsy 05 showroom & factory this week along with  Kier, Stephanie and Jenny and I have to say.. I was already in love with the brand.  This private tour took that love to a whole other level.

Here's the deal.   With so many companies sending

It's been a while since I pulled out my trusty overalls.  This past summer they were a constant in my wardrobe rotation.   Since Los Angeles seems to be in a never ending ever present state if summer...not complaints here.. I thought I would digg them up..

A simple outfit for a simple day of castings and errands.  No thought necessary!

Nothing says understated chic like

Wildfox, Charlotte Ronson and a Beverly Hill BBQ...


It's been while since I have done an event post... and since I do go to so many events I thought this year I would bring you guys along for the ride..  After all if you can't been there why not bring the fun to you. 

So I will apologize in advance for the quality of the photo's in these event posts from here on.. Most of the time these events have what I like to call sexy lighting.. which translates to grainy not so perfect photo's..  But hey life isn't perfect right.

This week I attended some pretty sweets events.. filled with

I would not be right to not kick off awards season with out a proper Stuff She Likes best of the Golden Globes 2014.  The Globes are officially the start of awards season.  This is the time when all the hard work and dedication of the "best" of Hollywood for the last year is recognized via awards shows, luncheons, press conferences, more luncheons and more awards shows.  It's also nearly three months of fashion porn where we get to drool,  love and often times hate what some of our favorite actors and actresses decide to adorn their bodies with.

Originally I only had a top four.. but

I've never been one to hide the fact that I am a repeat offender when it comes to my closet.  Lets face it, much to a lot of our dismay we actually have to re-wear items in our closets.  Personally I love the ease of a re-wear.  When I find a piece I like, I can't wait to wear it over and over again!  Case in point..

OUTFIT TUESDAY..Cut Not Cuffed...

The Look: Top: Zara.  Heels: Jean Michael Cazabat. Jeans: Abercrombie (mens). Sunnies: D&G c/o. Necklace: Stella & Dot c/o. Cuff Bracelet: CC Skye.  Clutch: Vintage
Slim and relaxed.. ........
.....................Distressed yet polished...
Feminine yet edgy..............

I adore when a look comes together with all three concepts..  Comfort is the name of the game and everything about this look was wrapped in comfort.  Okay maybe the shoes after a while were not so hot in the comfort department.. But that's an easy fix.  Switch out the heels for a pair of super cute pointed toe loafers and BAM!.. Comfort city!

My 25 favorite Stuff She Likes Looks of 2013..


Black Fashion Blogger, Black Blogger, Style Blog, Fashion Blog, Los Angeles fasahion Blog, Taye Hansberry,
As 2013 came to an end I was super excited about new beginnings..and still am!   But before we swing fully in to 2014.. let's face it most of us are still accidentally writing 2013 on our checks.. I though it would be fun to post my favorite 25 looks of 2013.  Man was that hard.. 

The worst part was narrowing it down.  I loved too many and so many came with such great memories that I wanted to just post them all.  This is where I am still learning the art of "the edit".  Let's note that I still have note come close to mastering it.

Anyhow..

FASHION FRIDAY: Slip Dress & Wardrobe Malfunction..

 The Look: Dress, Coat, Clutch: Zara.  Booties: BooHoo. Rings: Nikstone c/o
I have to say that this shoot was so much fun.  Not because of anything that Jason or I did.. but because of the constant distractions that came our way the entire time.

Who knew a backless slip dress on a busy boulevard could cause such a commotion.

Not to mention my near wardrobe malfunction that would have had me
