what to wear

Hey guys how are you this fine hump day? I get a lot of emails asking me fashion questions and last night I got one from loyal reader, Fergie! She is headed to a college football game and had a fashion question as to what to wear? I put a couple of fashion collages together for her and I hope that if you guys are headed to football game too, these selections help you as well, she wrote…

Hi Tami,
I love your blog and love your sense of style even more. I’m writing for NYE styling tips. I was able score tickets to the Ohio State vs Alabama game in New Orleans (hubby is gonna love me forever for this huge surprise). The game is played on New Year’s Day, which means I will likely be Bar Crawling on NYE and I wanna be cute but comfortable. What are your thoughts? 

So inside, check out what I put together and where you can find the items. I added a few designer pieces just to jazz it up a bit but you get the idea of how to rock your looks!

TWT TEA: Sorority Sisters Premieres, All Hell Breaks Loose!

December 16th, 2014


Adrene Ashford and I out at a event a few days ago

Well, Well, Well! The verdict is in and last night Vh1 premiered the most controversial reality show finally titled, Sorority Sisters. EVERYBODY and their cousins tweeted that they were boycotting all these sponsors and yada yada ya, but guess what you guys, you still watched and by you Tweeting, Facebooking and Instagramming, it still made people curious to watch it, non Greeks like myself and people who are Greek. I watched because I wanted to see if they were going to show my interview with one of the ladies but I was not featured last night. I guess I have will have to tune in next week…sigh!

I found the show to be just like the rest of them, ratchet, catty, pointless and messy but entertaining and it did keep my attention. Only thing that was different about this show is the fact that they are all women and members of four different greek-letter organizations. If you thought that you were tuning in to watch these women work together, engage in community activities and more, you were sadly mistaken. Plus who wants to see positivity on reality show right? Twitter was on fire last night and I saw a few tweets saying people were not going to Target or Walmart anymore since they supported the show, but my question is, where are you going to buy your household items from? You still need your ATT cell phone, you still will pay your bill and shop at Macy’s department store, its Christmas you know lol.  The marketing department for Vh1 was very strategic and knew exactly who to pitch this show to! Things that you definitely need in your life! Do you get it? I think personally a lot of people just wanted to ride the bandwagon and just have something to say. I’m not trying to offend anyone in a Greek organization, thats not my point but at the same time think about this… Read the rest of this entry »
