Hey guys! I am so excited because I finally got myself a new computer which means... MORE POSTS & VIDEOS! But until I start posting new videos, I want to catch you all up on some videos that I've already filmed. I filmed this video a few months ago and I finally got around to editing it yesterday. In this video, I show you all my graduation gifts, things that I brought & I also discuss my Graduation Vlog that I plan to edit and post soon. I hope you all enjoy and be on the look out for more videos. :)
Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since I made a post, but I'm back!! Everything has been so crazy since I've graduated! The reason for the delay was because I have been receiving a 'warm' welcome into the REAL world & the reality of life after college (Moving, Work, Bills, & Lack of Free Time). I plan to make a video talking about all of those things, but for right now, I want to give you all advice on How To Survive College. Now I know that some of you may already be in college, have graduated, or didn't attend college, and if that's the case, pass it on to someone that you think it will help. It doesn't matter if they are a freshman, senior or even still in high school preparing for college, this may help them. How To Survive College will be a 3-part series of Real Talk videos to help students survive Academically, Socially & Personally. In this Intro. video, I tell 4 important websites to help you while in college. This is before I give more really good college advice in Part 2. Make sure you watch and share. Also, stay tuned for the other parts because they will be coming soon.
Lately, I've been told that I look exotic whenever I do my makeup a little extra. So in the video, I will show you how to exaggerate your God-given features for an exotic look. This look gives the illusion of higher cheek-bones, a slimmer nose, a smaller forehead, sultry eyes and luscious lips. Hope you all enjoy!

Hey you guys! I am so happy to FINALLY be posting this video. You don't even understand!! I have been wanting to do this for over a year and now it's done. Some of these clips were filmed last year and some were filmed recently. Although it's almost Summer and camouflage is usually a Fall print, I wear it year-round. You guys know I don't follow the rules, and in this case, you don't have to either. It's ok to go a little Camo Crazy. Outfit details are below. Hope you enjoy!
Can you believe that this is a men's T-shirt!? I found it while in the attic this past December while I was searching for Christmas stuff. When I saw it, I immediately thought, "I can work with this"! It was easy. All I did was add a gold statement belt & some boots and there was my simple and inexpensive outfit.
For this outfit, I wanted to give off a more militant vibe. I paired these loose camo pants with a fitted military jacket to balance out the look. You can also wear this outfit without the jacket with just a tank top. Pair it with some black combat boots and your look is complete.
This is a more feminine look that can easily be achieved by mixing the camo print with a soft, neutral or pastel color. I chose a nude pink with wedges and a clutch to match. I also kept it cute by adding a pair of shades and dangly earrings.
This is another really easy look to achieve! Everyone has a pair of jeans! I chose high-waisted ones, but you can wear boyfriend jeans, distressed jeans or even jean shorts with a camo blouse like this. The thing that really makes this look stand out is having a bag that pops! I chose a mustard yellow bag and keep the rest simple with camel-colored sandals.
Look 5 & 6
I wanted to show that camo is a print that you can dress up or down by doing something as simple as changing the shoes. It's your choice. I chose to tuck my camo shirt into my favorite leather skirt. Yes, this is the same skirt that sold-out on my site 2 years ago and i'm still rocking it! I added a cute statement piece bracelet that I got from Target and my black Aldo clutch. I wore the combat boots in look 5 for a more casual look and switched into heels for a more dressy outfit in look 6.
Since today will be our first Empire-less Wednesday, I decided to post a video that I filmed a few weeks ago discussing the division amongst the black community. I feel that in order for us to be successful in fighting the system, we have to stop fighting amongst each other. We sometimes find any reason to divide ourselves and it's very counterproductive to the movement that we could make if we stood together. We have to remember that "United We Stand, Divided We Fall". In this video, I touch on issues ranging from the beef between African Americans at PWI's vs. the African Americans at HBCU's, the lightskin vs. darkskin battle and the origins of that division, the first Bus Boycott that started in my hometown, Baton Rouge, La. , and the Little Rock Nine. I hope you guys enjoy this video and feel free to comment.
Hey you guys! I know that it's been about a month in a half, but I am so happy to be back editing. I have been crazy busy with school, work, family, and getting ready for graduation that I haven't been having time to edit all these videos that I've been filming. It's ok though, I am trying to get back on it. In this video, I wanted to give you all my 10 favorites! These are things that I've been obsessing over and I want you all to know so that you can see for yourselves. I will have them listed & where you can find them linked below.
My 10 Favorites:
In this video, I give you a lookbook showing off 3 fun and flirty looks which are Chic, Sweet, & Street. I hope you all enjoy! Below I will list the outfit details. (Note that this video is for inspiration and I didn't list the specific places that I purchased majority of the items. This is because a lot of them are pieces that I've had for years.)
Look 1: Chic
This look is for the woman that's classy and bold. I wore a black & white houndstooth cardigan with a black tank top and light gray skinny jeans. I added my red sandals with the gold spikes and red lips for a pop of color and a black floppy hat to complete this look. This look is really easy to put together and it gives you a mysterious yet glamorous vibe.
Look 2: Sweet
Whenever you combine a skirt, the color pink, and floral print, you are bound to end up with a outfit that is very feminine and sweet. I paired a pink sweater with a floral print skirt and some tan sandals that i've been holding on to for years. To make the look even more girly, I added a gold and pearl statement piece necklace from icing along with pink lips.
Look 3: Street
Sometimes I like to switch it up and look more swaggy and comfortable. This outfit is really easy to put together. First, I cropped my hoodie by cutting off the pouch-like pocket. Then, I paired it with my distressed, high-waisted jeans. I wore the same red lipstick and heels that I did in the first look because I wanted to put a sexier twist on the hoodie look. Although I wore heels, you can always wear some Chucks or Jordans instead for a super comfortable look.
Hi everyone! I hope that you all had a great holiday and that you are starting your new year off right! So far for me, everything has been going great. I've been focusing on being more productive this year, setting goals, and doing whatever I need to do to achieve them. I thank you all for supporting me these past few years and I hope that I can continue to not only entertain but to make some sort of impact on your lives. Below is my youtube trailer entitled "Life of a Fashionista" which shows you a brief glimpse of my life and my brand. Hope you enjoy and once again, welcome to 2015!
Hey you guys! I am so excited because today makes the 2 year anniversary of SierraSharae.com! My goal was to get 20 thousand views this year and I have received over 22.5 thousand! I am so thankful for all the support that you have given me over these past 2 years. This upcoming year, I will strive to post more videos and do more interactive things with you all such as uStreams and giveaways. Just stay tuned because I plan to make next year bigger and better.
Now, let's talk about today's video. I think that it's time for a Real Talk. The video above is about Racism in America and the fight for justice. I usually don't like to speak on such controversial topics but I recently experienced a racist occurrence and I felt like I had to tell the story. I also touch on related subjects such as the death of Mike Brown, Eric Garner, life attending a predominately white institution and the white privileged in this video. I hope that this video is in someway enlightening and it sparks a fire in you to inform others of these issues.
Hey you all! I know, I know, it's been a little minute since i've made a post and I blame it all on my hectic school semester. Although school has been keeping me busy, don't think that I haven't been filming and working on some things. Today, I just wanted to give you all a throwback video that I made around New Year's last year. Even though it was originally made for New Year's, you can wear these outfits for other outings as well. This video gives you 3 different looks that all incorporate leather, which is the season's hottest staple that's here to stay. Hope you all enjoy and be on the lookout because I have some new videos coming soon! Later!
