A Lil Bit of This and That

Hello All,

I am wearing one of my favorite pair of tights.  I saw these in a magazine last year and could never find them in the stores.  Of course, one of the trendiest stores on Earth, Forever 21, came to the rescue and stocked them this year. These would also pair well under some denim cut-off shorts.  My shirt was a "love at first sight" find.  The shags caught my eye and it is extremely soft at touch.  The fact that it was on clearance for 50% off,  pretty much sealed the deal.  If you have been following my blog, you should know that I am a bargain shopper but will splurge on heels and handbags if necessary.  So with that being said...have you guys purchased any fashion bargain items lately?

P.S.  My posts may slow down until after the New Year as my little 8 year old photograper is on vacation.

Pop Your Collar

Hello All,

If you are in the mood for a little fur but don't want to go full on with a coat or vest, you should invest in a faux fur collar.  They can be worn over a sweater, such as in my pics, or can be unwrapped and worn over the lapels of a blazer, denim vest, or utility jacket.  Whatever the case, it is a cute piece that adds a pop of fun to your ensemble.  Wearing it over a simple cable-knit sweater takes my outfit from simplicity to sassy without much effort.  On top of that, it kept me warm during a very windy, rainy, and cool day. Do you have any go-to accessories that you can always count on to add a little bit of spice to your outfits?  Thanks for visiting the blog.  Until next time...

Happy Monday,

So who says you can't be colorful in the Fall?  I must say that I saw these pants in H&M when they first came out a few months ago and looked them off.  It wasn't until I seen my girlfriend wearing them, that they really caught my eye.  Sometimes, it takes seeing another person wearing an item, to make you do a double take and see the beauty that you initially missed.  So thanks Lakia.  Lol.  I bought this blazer several months ago because it was on sale and I liked the color.  I always recommend buying items you love and worrying about how/when you are going to wear them at a later date, especially if it's on sale. Once again, you can never go wrong with black booties and lastly, I'm thinking that this clutch that I am carrying is really a large cosmetic bag.  However, this just goes to show how one item can have multiple uses.  Until next time...

Hello All,

Ok...Remember these pants?  Well, I made sure not to place them in the dryer but for some odd reason, they no longer fit the same. Either they shrunk anyhow or I grew a little extra meat.  Lol.  Anyhow, good ol' H&M came to the rescue because I found another pair that are just as great.  In my opinion, floral prints will never go out of style.  The red in these pants stand out and puts me in the mood for the holiday season. Speaking of the holiday season,  if there is ever a time to go out all in sparkles, sequins, and jewels, it is the Christmas and New Year season.  So go all out, have fun, and be bold.  You only live once.  Until next time...

World AIDS Day


I am wearing red for World AIDS Day and getting my inspiration from my favorite artist...Beyonce'.  World AIDS Day is held on December 1st each year and gives those worldwide an opportunity to unite in the fight against AIDS, celebrate the lives of those who have died from the disease, and continue the fight for those living with the illness.  Instead of wearing the infamous red ribbon that is the universal symbol of awareness and support for those living with HIV, I decided to wear a red blazer.  Have a nice week everyone and although World AIDS Day is celebrated on December 1st, make sure to protect yourself and continue to spread the word to others 365 days of the year.

P.S.  Sorry for the gloomy pics.  Contribute it to low batteries in my camera and low enthusiasm from my photographer.
