Tracee Ellis Ross JCPenney Collection

I don’t typically “fan girl” over celebrities, but I can’t help but crush over Tracee Ellis Ross. She announced on her Instagram that she’d be having a collection at JCPenney and I couldn’t have been happier. Now, when celebrities release their collections the styles may be cute, but it’s nothing that I fall over for. Scratch that, most are typically way over my budget. This TraceexJCP collboartion is right up my alley and I have been in love with the collection since she started sharing pics of the pieces that’d be available. I’m no fashion blogger, but I thought I’d share my top picks from the collection.

Fashion Forward Friday [V. 21]: What’s In My Bag, Winter Edition

It’s been a year since I’ve posted a What’s In My Bag. When I started my Fashion Forward Friday Series it was the first installment (Click HERE for that). Well, I love sharing what’s in my bag and when looking at my initial post, the contents are pretty much the same. I thought I’d still share anyway.

The purse that I am currently using is a Liz Claiborne Drawstring Bucket Bag from JCPenny. I posted it in my ‘Happy HAULidays’ post (Click HERE for that), I got my bag in black which is what I needed, an everyday black bag.

No need to go in depth with everything as most of what’s in my bag are self-explanatory,.I will say, I always need to have pens and paper to jot down blogging ideas and other thoughts I have throughout the day. I prefer to write than take notes in my phone.

Looking closer into my ‘lippie bag’, I chose to uses  clear bag from one of my bag sets so I could see everything. I have a mirror, translucent powder, a brush, and  mascara. I use the translucent powered to make the OCC lip tar stay on longer. As for my three lip colors (click the links to lead directly to product):

I will be doing a review on both the OCC and Tarte lippies that I received in the Sephora, ‘Give Me More Lip, set. Stay tuned for that,

Usually there’s more junk such as lose papers and what not, but since I just got the bag and I’ve been using it for less than a month it’s pretty clean.
