A quick look at Tamera Sutton’s blog Tamara' Closet will have you gushing over her latest handbag obsessions or admiring the emerging style icons.

Dedicated readers recognize that Sutton thrives when sharing her reflective posts to inspire a better life. The type of inspiration that permeates much deeper. Deep into the soul, as she would describe it, calling her almost-weekly series “Soulful Sunday.”

Tamera is a Memphis native, alumni of the University of Memphis and recently earned an MBA degree from Strayer University. Her interest in the blog world though started around 2006.

“The first blog I read was back when it was a blogspot. Now The YBF is a million dollar website. Seeing how Natasha Eubanks and other bloggers succeed inspired me to follow my passion for writing,” says Tamera. “In December of 2013, I started Tamera's Closet. I wanted a lifestyle blog where I could show my love for entertainment, fashion, and food.” 

Reaching out further than just through her lifestyle blog, Tamera plans to host several inspirational events throughout the year, including the New Year Inspirational Media Brunch next Saturday. It gives a chance for bloggers, media personalities, and twitter friends to interact in person. Social media becomes social the traditional way.

“I have some great experienced speakers lined up for my media event. I hope that all of my guests are able to take to some helpful information from them, get inspired, network, meet new friends, enjoy the food, and most importantly have fun,” she says. 

Showing up is the easy part. Picking out what to wear may be little harder.

For her personal style, she’s drawn to signatures pieces and more of a modern look.

“Every woman should have a cute black dress,” says Tamera, when asked about closet staples. “A black dress is a very classic item. You can dress it up or dress it down.”

To the readers out there, her style advice is to “play your strengths.”: “Is there something people compliment you on? Whether it’s your toned back or your hourglass figure, wearing clothes that play up your best assets always looks stylish, no matter what is currently trendy.”
