Outfit: Blue Canvas

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

How was your Memorial Day weekend??? I hope you all had a blast! I went shopping this past weekend, bought a car, and cooked out with the family. In other words.....I'm currently super low on funds, LOL. I know the holiday is significant so I also thanked our brave soldiers for risking their lives for us each and every day and those who died fighting for freedom.



I wore these shades of blue for a speaking engagement with my regional pharmacy conference. I spoke on oral oncology agents. I was super nervous because there were so many people there but God had my back and I delivered the info like a boss ;-)
 
 
 


 I wish I can capture the textured detail of this skirt....it's so fab! These pumps are great for professional outings and they are my new neutral!

Outfit: Stripes and Fur

Greetings Fashionistas,

Welcome to the weekend!!! I have to be short and sweet today so let's get right into the post :-)


Yes....I know....I'm wrinkled as HECK!!! My sister told me that 'the wrinkles will fall out' cannot be my default excuse from ironing, LMBO!
 
 
 


This necklace is EVERYTHING!!! I'm so mad I wore these earrings....I stud pair would have better complemented my necklace.
 
 
 
 

This pink purse is a fabulous eye-catching shade! Not to mention I just love carrying it because it's so soft, LOL.

Outfit: Vintage Vest and Bermuda Shorts

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I hope your week is starting off well. If not, just know that a 3-day weekend is coming up shortly ;-)



I'm a just a wee bit obsessed interested in all things Bob Marley. And since I came back from Jamaica, I have been rocking his CDs, lol. I love to take a basic graphic tee and make it feminine. All it takes is heels, statement jewelry, and a lippie!
 
 
 


These dress shorts are really flattering. My thighs should be named something else but these shorts make them appear kinda fit, lol.
 
 
 
 
 


This metallic bag was one of the BEST $5 purchases I have ever come across! It subtly fits in with my overall look but also has a 'standalone' presence as well.

Outfit: Kimono, Swimsuit, and Gladiators

Greetings Fashionistas,

Friday has finally arrived. Why is it so hard to get back on track the 1st work week after vacation??? Is it because you get a little taste of what it would be like to not have to work? That could explain the profound feelings of despair that overcomes my psyche when I get back from vacay, LOL. At least I try to turn my thoughts to a new mantra...'working to vacay'......makes everything more tolerable :-)

I have another full weekend but it's all good. A huge presentation that I finished at the last minute (shame on me), comedy show and dinner with friends, niece's dance recital, and the most important, unimportant thing.....getting my hair done, lol. What do you guys have cooking?

Disclaimer: I had no time to take any pictures this week....and I didn't go anywhere. So unfortunately you will just have to be subjected to these poor quality droid images I have from my vacation. My bad!



During our tour in Negril, I kindly asked our driver to pull over so I could take photos. Doesn't matter if I'm in the states or not, I'm the same me, lol.
 
 
 

This kimono is so chic. It's going to be used as a swimsuit cover as well! Although the weather was hot and humid in Jamaica (some thing I'm definitely used to), this garment kept me pretty cool.
 
 


What am I looking at??? Can't remember, Haaa! But I do know these African necklaces are to die for! So glad I got these suckers!!!

Outfit: Polka Dot Dress

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I'm back from my very awesome mini getaway. My mom and I were trying to rack our brains to figure out how to extend our vacay by 3-4 days. We obviously were unsuccessful, lol. I'm a little bronzed and as a result I have been affectionately calling my complexion "Easter Bunny Chocolate". Haaa!



Bought this dress for 2 main reasons. 1). It has polka dots 2). It has a flared skirt. It reminded me of the 50s style dresses and thus my vintage love was piqued. I wore it to church on this past Sunday. I just need to add a wide brimmed hat and I can rock this look for the Kentucky Derby as well, lol.
 
 
 
 


I love turquoise paired with black and white accessories. Well, let me take that back......I actually love any bright color paired with black and white palette. It just looks so fab when bright colors are paired together with this classic canvas.
 
 
 


These heels are way more comfortable when I'm just standing on walking short distances. And they really don't hurt, they're just difficult to walk in because the arch is so high! Feel like I'm tip-toeing the entire time!!! LOL!
