C'mon, who doesn't absolutely love a Barbie moment in 2020? Even if pink hues aren't your style, there's no denying that the pink aesthetic is taking over the world - online and off. One way to exude femininity this season is a monochromatic pink look, with hints of silver or gold to break it up. The Kyle Midi is the perfect length and fabric for summer days that lead into summer nights. Along with this show-stopping dress, Eclectic Bella is a go-to for effortless street style and comfort. Each collection is curated with quality and price in mind.

Lemonade Yellow

If you've been dying to recreate a look similar to Beyonce's Lemonade, look no further. The Naya Robe and Ekon Pants from Andrea Iyamah scream 'summertime fine!'. The super long pants help to elongate your legs, with a waist tie to give you more control. Whether you have a smaller waist, fuller hips, or a longer torso; these pants accentuate any body shape. The chiffon robe with exaggerated sleeves elevates this luxurious look.

Money Green

While I gravitate towards any hue of green, this green is perfect for the summer season. Lively and energetic, this dress from Lilly's Kloset hugs every curve perfectly. The draped neckline is ideal for any size bust. The asymmetrical hemline and mid-section ruching help to create the most delicious silhouette. The lightweight fabric is ideal for summer, with a flirty slip underneath to facilitate the beautiful draping.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go.

Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive.

Black woman with an afro and tube top laughing

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically.
