Outfit: Off the Shoulder Sweater and Body Con Skirt

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I promise you all that I am working my photography skills going to work on my photography skills. I just know its NOT my camera, lol. Below I have some fuzzy photos of a recent look I put together before dinner with the bf. I had just washed my hair and unfortunately that's all I had time for. Oh well....




This top was getting on my nerves by the end of the night. It was a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen.
 
 
 

It's all in the details!!! These snakeskin print heels are so chic! And this clutch is one of my favorites! Ladies, if you are having trouble coming up with a quick look, keep the garments super simple and mix statement accessories.

Outfit: Cape Love

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday!!!!

I am getting ready to travel overseas and I am humbly seeking any and all prayer requests :-) Traveling is crucial to my 'Dora the Explorer' personality. I love experiencing what the good Lord has placed on this earth. Traveling also gently reminds me how blessed I am and how big this world truly is. Conversely, it also allows me to see the similarities from one culture to another. We focus so much on our differences that we neglect our commonalities. I recommend taking time off to add new experiences to your life. You will not regret it. If money is an issue, start small. A weekend can sometimes feel like a week!!!

Now on to the post. I'm loving the current cape and duster trend. Every time I wear either of these items I immediately hear the theme song from 'Shaft' going through my head, lol. It's astounding that we continue to be awed by fashions 'new trends' when in fact the fashion industry recycles trends every decade! I really need to extend my shopping habits to thrift stores and vintage boutiques. I'm just so lazy!!!!



I wore the above look out to brunch when the temps dipped for 48 hours, lol. Did I tell you guys that I LOVE this cape????
 
 


I would suggest not pairing your cape with a bulky item such as the sweater I'm wearing. It made me look huge. Now I'm not a tiny chick by any means....but I'm definitely fit.
 
Then again, it could be the white garments......white is so not flattering on me. Yet, I continue to wear it, lol. #Rebel
 





Can you imagine how difficult it is to walk on a cobblestone street in high heels? Well its a truly frightening experience, lol.

Outfit: Duster Obsessed

Greetings Fashion Friends,

It's Hump Day!!!! Whoo hoo! I am on vacation next week so pardon me for breaking my 'no complaining about work OR feeding the mental escapes from adulthood' rule, lol. But on the real, let me quickly share with you all a look that I wore to a friend's baby shower.

DISCLAIMER: I have no idea why a simple increase in the brightness of the pictures yielded these murky photos below. However, please refer to previous posts if you need to see what I look like, lol.



I am loving this snake print duster. Sorry not sorry you will be seeing this quite a bit. I think it's a good thing as some of you have commented that I never seem to wear the same thing twice. That's certainly not the case....trust ;-)
 
 


This purse pops so well against the black and white. And we have to show love to the heels. Five bucks never looked so good :-)

Outfit: Cape or Blanket???

Greetings Fashionistas,

I have blogging now for about 6 years........wowsers!!! My how time flies! I started my blog as a way to curb my shopping habits. It worked brilliantly for a brief period, then my inner fashionista broke out of her self contained prison, lol. Although my content presentation has changed dramatically from when I first started out blogging, the focus remains the same.....all about fashion!

My foray into the blogosphere consisted of me diligently posting daily, Monday thru Saturday, about all things fashion. Then life happened and now I'm down to two posts a week. SMH. But I still love it. I have a bit of ADD (self diagnosed of course) and I really thought I was only going to last maybe 3 years max!!! I'm happy to say I'm still here....even though the blogosphere is completely saturated (which is not a bad thing as some may believe), I still have fellow fashion followers coming through to see what's new in my fashion pad. I thank you all so kindly for your support over the years. You guys seriously ROCK!




On the site where I purchased this lovely outerwear, it was described as a cape. However, once I received it I thought it appeared more like a short blanket. Then, I wore it on Valentine's Day and I promised you I felt like I had a blanket wrapped around my shoulders. It kept sliding down....one of my pet peeves....and it was way more bulkier than I expected.
 
Don't get it twisted, I'm still going to wear it, lol. I just thought I would offer my honest opinion :-)
 
 



My bf said...and I quote...."If you're going to wear that tribal blanket, could you please put on something short and tight as well for me?", LMBO! He was kidding, but I still decided to bring out my SATs (Short and Tight), lol.
 




I had to add the fedora at the last minute because my hair twists were still damp. And for my fellow natural hair sistas, you know that would have been a complete tragedy! Basically my whole night would have been ruined!!! (supreme drama queen).

Outfit: Plaid Culottes

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

On Sunday, I decided to take my "new" culottes for a spin. I remember wearing these a ton while growing up in the 90s but this modern take on the classic culottes brings in the midi trend. I'm a shorty (height - 5'2"), so I was a little worried that the width and length of these culottes would be a little overwhelming. However, I couldn't pass up on there $8 price tag plus I like to break the fashion rules every now and then ;-)



I tried to balance the wide pants leg by cinching the waist. I wish I would have used a slimmer belt, but hey, it worked somewhat.
 
 


Also, these thin, ankle-strapped heels helped to reduce the appearance of a 'shortened' leg.......something I need absolutely no help with, lol.
