Closet Revamp

Ok, so this is another busy week, but I wanted to share this quick tip with you.  Don't you love to take things that are old and make them look new?!?! Well, to be honest, that is one of my most favorite things to do.  With today's outfit of the day (OOTD), I'm going to do just that! There's nothing more fabulous than being fabulous on the cheap! Love it! 

I was going through my closet, and I found a pair of some old thrifted jeans, a sweater that's about 2 years old now that was gifted, and some Leopard Faux Suede Platform Heels for less than $40 (which I love from AMI Clubwear)... together, we can make old things new right there in your closet! 

I love using prints in outfits  because it works all year round. Some may say differently, but who follows "rules" anyway right? Granted, there are some patterns are seasonal, but bold prints like leopard

has worked for me during every season :) I hadn't worn this sweater in a while, so thought I would pull it out and wear it again with different shoes, but still keeping the look really simple. So... Here you go. Let me know in the comments below.  xoxo

Renee, you rock!!!

The "Work it Wednesday" spotlight is shining on a woman who gives to us all. This week LaJule has chosen the fabulous, Renee Grippon. She is a 35 year old mother of two, who works hard and sacrifices herself on so many different levels. She has been serving in the United States Army for the last 14 years. Renee is from the Charleston area, but is currently living in Europe. She has defended our country, while deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq. She is taking herself to higher levels by working on her Bachelor's degree in Public Health, fellowship with her Order of Eastern Star organization and helping out at USO for wounded soldiers. We all have a story, and her story is amazing!!  Not only is Renee hard working, she is a hard working woman with style!! She knows how to "Work it!" 

 Renee's look is her desired masterpiece. With her braided Mohawk and Louis Vuitton bag, she loves to make a statement with her look. She's rocking a dress that was made while in Korea and paired this striped ensemble with some nude pumps from Zappos and accessories from Body Shop. I've always said, confidence is always a good look on a woman and Renee has that down!! Thank you for being selfless for our country while still staying fabulous! We love you girl! xoxo

Work it Isis!!!

As some of you may remember, LaJule started honoring women in the past for our "Work it Wednesday" spotlight. We have been searching for just the right time to relaunch this and today proved that it is perfect time! Everything just lined up...So, this week LaJule has chosen the unforgettable and gorgeous Isis Frasier and we wanted to share a little about this lady who truly knows how to "Work it!" It's truly and honor to know her.  

To be honest, she is very well known by many around Charleston, but for those who don't know her, she is a 34 year old mother who works hard and sacrifices herself daily for so many others! Not only is she an inspiration to her friends and family, but even to those who may not even know her personally! Yep! That's right.  Trust me, we all could take and learn something from a page in her book. Like I said before, not only is she an amazing individual, but she has made a lifestyle changes that has a resulted in her loosing over 150 lbs!  She lost the weight, but gained a platform by using her influence to share her experiences and daily lending encouraging words for anyone who may need it.  With her spirit, hard work, and being such an over comer of many obstacles she deserves the spotlight today. 

 Here, she is looking extra fabulous in this color blocked dress by Guess and boots are from Francis Gibbs.  Isis is standing her ground and showing off her sexy for sure!  She has accessorized her outfit with a pair of gold dangle earrings, makeup and photography by Thettra Brown, with her hair by Alaina Smalls...  Isis, work it girl!!!!  We love you!
