Glamazon Jessica’s Fall Wishlist: Plaid, Bow Sneakers and Lace-Up Pumps 

Glamazons, I’m usually that girl that tries to hold onto summer for dear life, dreading the coming of September like the plague. I don’t know if it’s New York Fashion Week or the return of Empire and Scandal but I’m actually excited for Fall to get here this year. Wait, I know exactly what it […]

Found: The Only Piece You Need To Transition To Fall (PLUS How To Style It) 

Glamazons, Although I am more than ready to rock my favorite fall staples, I’ll be the first to admit that I never quite understood the sleeveless coat. I’d find myself asking exactly how do you wear it…and why? But recently, I’ve been getting my entire life from the trend. It’s perfect for this summer-to-fall transitional weather […]

5 Thoughts After Seeing #StraightOuttaCompton @ComptonMovie [Review] 

Glamazons, If you follow me on Snapchat (@DressUpWithJess), you know I screened Straight Outta Compton on Monday. I couldn’t share my reaction then but finally, I can tell you how much I enjoyed it (seriously, I can’t wait to see it again!). It’s more than your typical music biopic. It’s a gripping portrayal of one of […]

What I Wore: Pizza and a Pool #OOTD

What I Wore: Pizza and a Pool #OOTD 

Glamazons, I posted earlier about full-time blogging and some of the benefits. One of the best gifts to come from working for myself, and from home, is the ability to spend time with my family and travel. I enjoyed both a couple weeks ago when my aunt, cousins, niece and nephew got away for a […]

4 Ways To Make Culottes Flattering (And Even Sexy!)

4 Ways To Make Culottes Flattering (And Even Sexy!) 

Glamazons, I’m in serious denial that it’s already August. Why? Because that means summer will be ending in just a few short weeks and I’ll have to put away my mini skirts and short shorts for pieces that are more fall-appropriate. The silver lining is that some of my favorite summer staples can be worn […]

Trend Alert: The Most Comfortable Heels We’ve Ever Worn (Seriously.)

Trend Alert: The Most Comfortable Heels We’ve Ever Worn (Seriously.) 

Glamazons, I am a self-proclaimed shoe addict. So much so that when I was younger, my motto was “The higher the heel, the better.” I can remember pounding the gravel on my college campus, sashaying from class to class wearing footwear that was always more stylish than practical. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve found […]

Why I Choose To Speak Out on Social Issues as a Beauty Blogger

Why I Choose To Speak Out on Social Issues as a Beauty Blogger 

Glamazons, When I first started my Twitter account @ItsEstaFiesta in 2009, I decided it would be strictly for career purposes. That meant avoiding hot topics that could be considered taboo in the workplace. I steered clear of conversations about politics, sex and the one topic many Americans fear most: race. Initially, it made sense to […]

What I Wore: Summer Brights #OOTD

What I Wore: Summer Brights #OOTD 

Glamazons, Things have been really dark lately. We’re burying unarmed youth who were killed by police, we’re having to face the ugly truth of rape culture as more of Cosby’s accusers come forward, and cancer is taking people from us before their time. Life can get heavy. As sobering as reality can be sometimes, I […]

Empire Fashion Recap: Cookie’s Gucci Fall 2013 Dress and Moschino Fall 2015 Jacket 

Glamazons, Finally – Cookie is back! Well, not completely. We just got a sneak peek of the Lyons family matriarch in the trailer for Empire‘s much-anticipated second season. I don’t know if it’s the upcoming guest appearances (Kelly Rowland! Ludacris! Tyrese!) or the fact that I met Bryshere Gray (Hakeem) on the street at Essence […]
