Day 15

15. Your zodiac/horoscope and if you think if fits your personality


Strengths: loyal; passionate; resourceful; observant; magnetic; powerful; determined; dynamic

Weaknesses: are on a need-to-know basis

It was quite intriguing to read the character traits and descriptions for Scorpio.  I must admit that they are surprisingly accurate.  I’m not one to read my horoscope everyday, but reading these descriptions were amusingly insightful.

DZ LookBook – Fierce Earrings



Enjoying the summertime!

DZ Summer Romance

June 21 marked the first day of summer.  Bold colors, flowing material, lace accents, and vintage galore are the main trends I’m following for this season.  I collected some images of a few outfits and accessories that I will be adding to my wardrobe…or something similar to them.

From Essence Magazine, this summer collection emphasizes the “spice” flavor.  A very happy and breezy feel, these outfits are pretty easy to find and great to accessorize with.  To avoid clogging your closet with multiple pieces that only work for one occasion, look for patterned dresses, skirts, rompers, etc that have different colors.  Then you can mix-n-match with different jewelry, belts, bags, and shoes.

From, the vintage look is in for this summer.  Pastel colors and sophisticated accents are key with this look.  Simplicity is also important.  Patterned top with solid bottom or vice-versa.   Light blazers, retro vests, slim belts, and A-line skirts can be used as the main focus for the outfit.  The mix-n-match technique can also work with patterns and colors.

Essence Magazine again.


Mix-n-match with colors, elegance, sophistication, and spice.  I am on the hunt for maxi dresses and A-line skirts; along with lace tops and a nice pair of sandals.  If I come up with anything memorable, I will post soon.  Enjoy the summertime.

DZ LookBook – It’s all for L.O.V.E.

14. What you wore today

Has it really been two years?  It feels like it was only yesterday when my sister showed me a text message stating Michael Jackson was dead and all the radio stations were playing his music.  It feels like it was only a few hours ago when I was staring at CNN watching people gather at the hospital along with a repetitive reel of Michael’s life.  It feels like it was only a few minutes ago, as my anger and sorrow grew, that reality struck: my only opportunity to experience my icon’s live performance disappeared.

Today marks the 2 year anniversary of Michael Jackson’s passing.  It is a day for Michael Jackson memories, music, dance, and love.  I love you more Michael!

To make this list one must have a sense of humor, intelligence, adventure, rhythm, fun, and class.  These marvelous men exhibit these qualities on and off camera…for the most part.
