Diamond Shapes 101 :: Carats & Coffee with JamesAllen.com

I’m sure it’s no surprise Johnny and I love coffee. Nowadays when Johnny and I are together, we love setting up shop in a cafe sipping on coffee and getting work done. When we first met, we loved exploring coffee shops in Dallas. Then Austin when we went to the University of Texas. That love for coffee continues now when we travel, whether it’s to faraway places including Seoul or a few hours away such as Washington, D.C. I feel as if a cup of coffee is such a great bonding experience. It sets up the mood for whatever you’d like to talk about, good or bad. In this case, we’d like to talk to you about something good and sparkly: carats! Read more…

How to Get Designer Bags at a Discount

Hello Everyone! Designer bags including Chanel, Dior, Givenchy and more always have such an elusive appeal. However, they can definitely be quite expensive, hence being a designer bag. This doesn’t mean they cannot be somewhat attainable though. Today, I want to share how to get designer bags at a discount. Rebag, formerly Trendlee, is a great place to shop for what I call pre-loved designer bags. I purchased my Chanel Boy bag pre-owned and it was a great way to save a lot of money. I can understand the worry behind whether a bag is authentic. That’s where Rebag shines.  Read more…

The Best Color to Wear and Stand Out for Summer

Summer is the time where everyone tends to wear their brightest and best. So what is the best color to wear and stand out for summer? While many may gravitate toward red or maybe even turquoise, I will always be loyal to yellow. It’s my go-to color for good reason. Not too many people will wear yellow because they believe it doesn’t look good against their skin tone. But, if it’s summer and you have a halfway decent tan, it’s all about finding the right shade of yellow for you. Trust me, I truly believe yellow is the best color to wear for so many people. You just have to find the right one.  Read more…

Best outfits from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Public Access

IT’S HERE! Finally, everyone can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018! There are so many incredible things restocking for public access and I’m excited to share them with you! If you’d like to see my other looks, Johnny’s top picks for men and other Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 related posts click here. I was actually able to grab pretty much everything I wanted and the items not fitting well or I don’t love as much in person will be going back.

My best advice is if you like something, add it to your cart and check out as soon as you can. If you plan on placing a big order, maybe split it into two so you don’t have items sitting in your cart for more than 20 minutes because those items are still up for grabs! Thanks to Nordstrom’s free shipping and returns, you can always bring or send something back if you don’t like it. However, if an item is sold out, it’s most likely gone. Now let’s get to my favorite outfits and picks from the sale! Read more…

2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Men’s Top Picks by Johnny

If you haven’t checked out your recent Nordstrom, you must. Everything is wrapped in yellow! So much yellow. Kimmie tells me a lot of her readers were asking about my picks out of the Men’s department from the Nordstrom Sale, so bearing that in mind, I decided I could try and do a little bit of what she does to help the husbands, boyfriends, brothers and Dads of Color & Chic readers so they look fly this fall. However, I will admit I felt like I was going to have a heart attack before walking into Nordstrom. I just don’t like shopping, which is why Kimmie handles it. But here goes my 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Men’s Top Picks. Read more…
