We had a BLAST this morning on GOOD MORNING TEXAS dishing on how to wear animal print! See our segment : CLICK HERE FOR THE SEGMENT
The question isn’t “Should you wear animal?” because the answer is undoubtly “YES!” The real question is how to wear it and make it work for YOU the best!
I have four simple rules when it comes to styling animal……
1. If it is a large print animal don’t match your look with the animal print. It looks dated if you do that. Try putting nice cool pastels like this EILEEN FISHER BLUE TANK paired back with these comfy WINTER WHITE 7 for all mankind jeggings making the big animal printed BURBERRY CAPE look updated and fresh! I love the added touch of our dear own Dallas darling Britt Harless new line BAHZ tree necklace. It is the icing on the cake for this look today!

2. TAME THE ANIMAL!!!!! Sometimes animal print can be extremely overwhelming or maybe you are just a more understated fashionista. So if that is the case, go for a more subtle animal print like this SNAKESKIN PRINT PALAZZO PANT and put it back with a soft pastel like this FUR TRIMMED PINK SWEATER and SILK BOW blouse by my favorite ALICE AND OLIVIA Finish the look off with these COLOR BLOCKED mary janes from SHOEDAZZLE and your look is ON ANOTHER LEVEL!

3. POP the animal with a VIBRANT COLOR! This is for all you daring fashionistas or accessories addicts! Find a bright vibrant color and pop the animal in the accessories like we did here with this AHHHHMMMMAAAAZZZZIIINNNGGG Stella McCartney animal clutch
and these animal print SHOEDAZZLE booties This pop of animal just literally reaches out and grabs you when you pair it with this chic PINK CAPE DRESS You will be kicking fashion booty and taking names, my friend!

4. Stay SINGLE with your animal print. It makes it look more expensive and special with just highlighting your animal print against a streamlined one color look. Like we did with this very hip DVF animal print hoodie.
For the more edgy fashionista this animal printed legging by Third Level Active is a great workout legging that transitions great from day to night. Just trade your sneakers for some boots and add a leather jacket and BAM! you are set for the night and look FABULOUS!
Just so you know this takes a village to get these segments together and we couldn’t do it without everyone coming together EARLY in the morning like our Hair and Makeup team of PAIGE ANDERSON and AMBER PRICE THANK YOU GUYS SOOOO MUCH!
And of course my partner in crime – ASHLI VONDARA who I would trust with my first born….she is PRICELESS!
Peace and LOVE
j nay nay
The last 6 months for me personally and professionally have been overwhelming. I have been through a lot – good and bad. However, today I am not complaining. I am celebrating because God had to do some major “road work” before He could move me on toward His plan for my life. Way before I was CHIVVIStyles, I was a daughter of the KING! But sometimes in life, we get busy with all the craziness of this world and forget about our calling. So you see, He had to remind me who was in control. When I fell ill and couldn’t breathe or walk trust me, I got the message LOUD and CLEAR. I am a very stubborn person and strong willed at best. My spirit is free and rebellious at heart. SO there are many times I wrangle with Him. I have to be reminded I am NOT my own but I am HIS. He created me and He destined me for His purposes.
He had to do some major re-construction on my world and the stuff in my life. He showed me what was important and what was creating confusion in my life. He got real busy revealing which people that weren’t really “on my side.” In the process, He also added some amazing people and amazing opportunities that I have desired my entire life. It was a definite construction zone and there were some days I just didn’t know which way to go or how long I would have to “wait in this traffic” because of the construction.
But today 6 months later I feel pure joy and assurance in my life I haven’t felt in a very long time. Joy in knowing I don’t have to hustle, worry, manipulate or anything else in my life to get where I need to be. I know HE will finish it the way He intends to and He is working for me. I just have to remain in HIS will for my life and trust Him to guide my footsteps. I am filled with thankfulness this morning as I realize the real freedom in living that I have in Christ Jesus. It creates a security and peace in me and fills with me with real joy. Joy not from my circumstances but from my identity in HIM. It gives me a peace that is NOT realistic for the worlds standards but it is super natural. I hope today if you are reading this that you will be blessed and realize Jesus loves you and He isn’t through with you yet. Your future may seem uncertain, but He wants to help you, guide you and most important He wants to LOVE you! Allow Him who created you and knew you before you were even born to hold you in HIS arms and take care of YOU today!
In light and love of Christ,
I was so excited to be asked to dish on the BEST and Worst of the carpet for the 2015 Emmy’s for GOOD MORNING TEXAS today!
watch the segment right here: GOOD MORNING TEXAS EMMY review segment
In my humble opinion here are my Best Dressed :
Sarah Hyland – ZAC ZAC ZAC ATTACK – wow this marsala monotone look RULED last night – she owned the carpet from head to toe!
Laura Prepon – Loved the custom Christian Siriano dress and mini bolero jacket she rocked! It was completely different than anything we saw and have seen. RED and shades of red are all the rage for fall and spring too!
Jaime Alexander – WOW! Armani Prive custom 70’s print sequined dress was perfection on her. Loved the hair, makeup and entire feel of her last night. She will not be unknown forever…it reminds of when Elizabeth Hurley rocked that Versace dress one time and became famous overnight because of the Red Carpet moment as Hugh Grant’s arm candy.
Emma Roberts- Old Hollywood glam was achieved last night in Emma’s blush barely there Jenny Packham fabulous dress. Her look with the side swept golden locks and minimal necklace finished off her look. She has def upped her style game now and love her stylist!
Cool trends we witnessed right before our eyes on the carpet:
LOBS – messy bobs
The new strapless – it is higher and dusts the shoulder in a very modern way
White with metallic hardware – nothing is chicer than white with metallic and these ladies proved it last night on the carpet
Shoulder chains – oversized chains nearly broke twitter last night on Claire and Taraji’s dresses last night
YELLOW – in all shades seem to be in abundance on the carpet
also, I have to thank my personal glam squad www.paigeanderson.net for getting me camera ready!
My boots are from www.shoedazzle.com and my look is from Clothes Circuit – Tory Burch duster sweater and vintage black jumper
Peace and love
WELL…..I am finally back from a long hiatus of healing …..and today we had a FABULOUS day on GOOD MORNING TEXAS
Here is the link to our segment this morning :
OUR SEGMENT FOR GOOD MORNING TEXAS ON COATS
We are waiting on the cold weather to come in and sweep us off our feet but a girl must be prepared and proactive when dealing with the important things in life like…..
What kind of coat do I need to buy this season???? Well, here are the important trends to consider when pondering this major fashion dilemma this season.
da da dummmmmmm
First important trend is SUPER HERO! She wears a cape and can leap tall buildings in a single bound. Capes, military inspired looks are super HOT for coats. Here is our take on it with gorgeous Jennifer and she is wearing this amazing cape from GREGORY’S at Northpark.
Our second trend is FUR ACCENTS! Fur on collars, sleeves, vests, trim, etc. I mean let’s get real, fur is ALWAYS on top of my list each winter. I love it and I am sorry to anyone who takes offense to it. not really… but I digress… Here is our take on it with gorgeous Kayla modeling this ETRO beaded evening coat dress from Clothes Circuit. We finish off her look with a pony ankle Manolo Blahnik bootie from Clothes Circuit.
Our third important trend is SPORTY meets style look. You will have to wear more than yoga pants and a tee shirt this fall and why not pair it with a puffer jacket which is ALL the rage this fall/winter! Here is our take on it with Ashli rocking this amazing lipstick printed ESCADA puffer with the fur trim (two trends in one) back with her winter whites and cool shoedazzle.com boots.
Last but def not least is our last coat trend which is OVERSIZED. This is HUGE and I mean huge as in sizes of coats walking down the runway. Long sleeves, long opera coats, dusters and huge oversized shapes as well. Here is beautiful Vanna rocking this trend in all grey jeans and turtleneck from GREGORY’S at Northpark, grey shrug for layering from PLANET BLUE, amazing robe coat from ESCADA and adorable grey booties from shoedazzle.com.
We had such a fabulous team of models and crew! Paige Anderson and her asst. Amber did a fabulous job in putting us together backstage so we could look camera ready! THANK YOU!
SO don’t say I never told you anything or helped you…because here it is…so take that and GO SHOPPING!
THANK YOU ESCADA and Shoedazzle.com for my blanket wrap and fringe thigh hi boots….
until next time….peace and LOVE
