Outfit: Cookie-Inspired Fall Fashion from Walmart

There are a lot of things I look forward to about fall: The start of the school year after a long summer, cooler weather and fall fashion are high on the list. But I can’t even lie: I eagerly await September because my favorite shows come back for a new season. This September, I cannot wait to see what drama will unfold when Empire returns. So when Walmart asked me to share a fall fashion story, I decided to pay homage to my girl Cookie.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Cookie is the Lyon family matriarch who is fresh off a 17-year bid in prison for drug dealing. And when I tell you Cookie don’t play, I mean Cookie don’t play. She’s quick to tell any and everybody off, and she has a penchant for fur, leather, animal prints, form-fitting silhouettes and dark lipstick.

What I love about Walmart.com is that you can find pieces there that you have little to no chance of finding in store. Case in point: This amazing fur vest that cost me just — wait for it — $20.97. What?! I’ve been wanting a fur vest since last fall, and I couldn’t believe my luck at scoring one so affordably.




I was a little skeptical about what kind of quality I’d be getting, but I was pleasantly surprised. The fur is soft and cozy, the lining and seams are great, and overall, it looks a lot more expensive than it is. The one caveat: It sheds. A lot. So while I probably won’t wear dark cotton fabric with it next time, and I’ll have to carry a lint roller, I’m still happy with it.



Now, for these jeans. Actually, they’re jeggings, and they are awesome. The coated, leather-look fabric is the perfect denim look for fall, and like all Walmart’s Faded Glory jeggings, they cost less than $15. And as an awesome bonus I didn’t expect, the fabric is stretchy, but firm, so I don’t even have to wear shapewear. Yes please, and thank you. 🙂


Overall, the leather and fur look is very Cookie, and I hope I did her justice. I’ll always think of her when I wear this vest, and I can’t wait for the Empire season premiere!

Oh, and of course, an outfit shoot wouldn’t be an outfit shoot without a photobomb from Juliza. You’re welcome 🙂
