House of Dereon New Dress Collection

Per Fabsugar

Beyonce and her mom Tina are busy ladies. Besides launching the Sasha Fierce collection, House of Deréon is designing a collection of day dresses for Spring. There will be a few dress and jacket ensembles, as well as jumpsuits in materials like washed rayon, silk, sateen, and spandex knit. "Beyoncé and I have had several occasions where we have meetings all day and don’t have time to run and change before dinner. This is a perfect collection to wear from the office to dinner because each piece can easily be dressed up or down," Tina Knowles said. The collection wholesales from $70 to $100 and will be available at select high-end department and specialty retailers.

As for the future? "I’m really hoping we can go into accessories really soon, especially jewelry. And as for shoes, that’s completely Beyoncé’s thing."

See more from House of Deréon's daywear line.

I don't understand The House of Dereon. They started off as a streetwear brand with their name blasted all over their clothes just like all the other similar brands. Then they 'glammed' up with evening gowns. Now, there are these day dresses, which look like Rachael Roy knock offs to me. I think they're trying too hard or they are changing their vision too often for me. I just don't know.

Fashion Show

Here's a cool fashion show put on by students at Coventry University UK. I wish my major focused more on design so I can do things like these students.

Horizontal World

Beauty Summer Wishlist Part II

Red Palm Butter

A very fatty oil, so it's very moisturizing for the hair. It has many of the same benefits as coconut oil.

Hooded Hair Dryer
I really need one of these. Sometimes I get really tired of air drying my curls and sometimes I feel trapped indoors until my hair is dry enough to go outside. A regular hand dryer is too powerful, which creates frizz and gives too much heat.

Kinky Curly Curling Custard
I want this so bad I can't even take it. I've seen many results of this product and I have read many reviews. I love what I've seen and read. It's a gel that gives hold and definition.

Curls Milkshake
A curl definer and Leave-in. I'm not so sure about this anymore after reading reviews on It seems they changed their formula in 2008, and it doesn't work the same as it once did for regular users. I'm a product junkie, though, so I still want to try this.

Vatika Coconut Oil w/ Henna
There are so many beneficial ingredients in this that I just need it.
-Coconut Oil
-Fruit Extracts
-Kapur Kachri
-Rosemary Oil
-Lemon Oil

Elucence Products
I've heard many good things about this line and that they are great for curly hair. I can't find them anywhere near I live, but they can be purchased online.

Ice Cream Cake! ~$20

Victory Touring One 26" Men's Cruiser Bike $179.00

I REALLY want a bike. I've been wanting one since last year, so since I still want one really bad, I know it's meant for me to have one! This bike is from Walmart and it says it's a cruising bike. I need a fitness bike, but I like the way this one looks.

26" Schwinn Women's Aluminum Comp $194.00

26" Schwinn Link Women's Bike $179.00

These are the fitness bikes I need because I want a bike that is for working out also. These are the mountain bikes I like.

26" Ladies' Cranbrook Cruiser Bike $84.00

Huffy 26" Women's Cranbrook Fashion Cruiser $84.00
I like the old school pink rubber handle bars!

These are cheaper options. Hubby just wants to know what I want and how much it's gonna cost! Haha!

Tiny Nose Ring ~$55

Drinks ~$30

Happy Birthday to Me!

Aliciya's Jumper

I made an outfit for my niece, Aliciya!

(Hi Everybody)

It was really fast to make and I really like it even though I kinda think it looks like a little boys outfit. (Sorry sis!)

I used this pattern.

Here's some of the process it took to make it.

Here's a cat (Lucy)
