Outfit: Camo and Lace-up Sandals

Greetings Fashion Pad Readers,

Happy, happy Friday!!! Today is the last day at work before I head out on vacation tomorrow. Sooooo excited!!! I swear I have to travel somewhere every 2-3 months or I start to hyperventilate, LOL. Seriously, I may not have an anxiety attack but I do become mildly irritated for no reason, lol. But don't worry, I try my best to keep it to myself.....or direct it at my bf :-)

Again I must apologize in advance for my poor photo quality. As a result of my busted camera (honestly it could be all me and my technical ignorance), I used some special effects to salvage at least a few of the pictures.




As you can see, I was not lying these photos are straight struggling!!! SMH
 
I pulled out this camo top and risked passing out in 100-degree temps to layer it with a tank. Just in case you're wondering, I made it with just a small sheen of perspiration, lol.
 
 
 
 


Love love love these heels!!! I decided to pair this super casual look with these sexy high heels for a slightly vamped up look.

Outfit: African Inspiration

Greetings Fashion Friends,

It has been raining several times a day so my photo ops have been completely non-existent. However, I decided to share some pics I took a few weeks back. I didn't like my hair nor my outfit (when I went out I actually changed it), hence my delay in posting here on the blog. But hey, maybe one of my loyal readers will be inspired :-)



So my afro would NOT cooperate!!! I really do love natural hair but MY natural hair and I are constantly fighting so I'm mostly not a fan.
 
On another note, this "dress" was actually listed on the site as a top. Really? I know I'm pretty short but good grief! Anyhew, this necklace is like my favorite right now!!!
 
 
 


Love a garment with a little back action.....it's the only thing that saved it for me. Otherwise I would have donated it already.
 
 

I probably would have been okay with the dress if I would have at least ironed it. On second thought, I doubt it. It's too shapeless and my curves only add bulk. Not flattering at all!!!

Style Inspo - Christian Louboutin Otrot Suede Sandals

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

Listen, I was really bad this past weekend. I bought something that I just didn't have to buy!!! I love shopping and styling but I have to learn balance and definitely RESTRAINT!!! It's pretty ridiculous at this point. I'm starting to get irritated with my darn self.

I succumbed to these beauties below. As my friend said, they are a walking party!!! However, the only walking they've done for me is to stroll through my bank account for a quick shoot out. Lawd have mercy!


New Additions - Fringe Love




While I am indeed excited about my new heels, I just can't believe how weak I am sometimes. SMH.

Well, since I went ahead and completely obliterated my shopping fund for my vacation. I guess I will "create" some looks to wear with my new heels.




Denim on Denim and Fringe





This denim on denim look will work well against the bright colors of the Otrot suede sandals. I would like the focal point to be the heels in this look so selecting simple classics will definitely do the trick.







Pristine Romper and Fringe






The pristine white color of this romper will certainly allow my new heels to pop! I really love the elegant and sexy cut of this garment.





 
Crop Top, Destroyed Denim, and Fringe





I also plan to pair my heels with more laidback looks as well. This outfit above incorporates my favorite style of jeans. Who doesn't  love a good pair of distressed denim??? A trendy crop top and sunnies round out this look nicely!





So what do you all think about the new additions? Please feel free to offer any other styling suggestions in the comments.





Tchau!

Outfit: Vertical Lines

Greetings Fashion Pad Readers,

Happy Fri-YAY!!!! I'm about to have a weekend full of relaxation and quality time with the bf. I almost picked up a shift on Sunday and I'm so glad I declined. It's rare to run across a full weekend with nothing scheduled on the agenda. Might as well take advantage right? My weekend activities actually started a little early. Last evening I went to dinner with the fam to celebrate my lovely niece's 17th birthday. Awww.....the good 'ol years. Old enough to enjoy life without all the adult responsibilities. Take me back!!!! LOL!





Soooo......I thought vertical lines were supposed to be slimming???? I guess this look was my reality check. I will be in the gym tomorrow and curving ALL unhealthy diet choices until I get this fluffy mess together. SMH
 
 
 


After I put on this jumpsuit, I wanted to incorporate a pop of color to contrast the black and white/silver palette. I chose a pink pair of shoes over my classic red style (black, white, and red is a legendary pairing). My bf thought it was "different", LMBO!!!!
 
 
 

Note to self.....give these sandals away. They have a ridiculously low heel.... only 3 inches high!!!! I felt like a little person all night long :-(

Outfit: Linen Blazer and Polka Dot Shorts

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

I hope your week is off to a great start! If not, pray about it and keep a positive attitude! I know I am. I had an excellent weekend and I hope to repeat it again but until that time comes, let me just focus on the here and now. So apparently I had a brain fart and decided I would wear a blazer on day where the temp reached 104 degrees. Yea, I probably had a mini heat stroke but I survived, lol.



I cannot believe I'm wearing white shoes. I've always been against cocaine white heels. I used to think they were tacky and easily soiled. I just recently got interested in them as I've spotted runway looks with monochromatic outfits paired with white stilettos. Then I've seen them more and more on my fellow bloggers. I've never thought of myself as a fashion follower but I chose to follow today :-)
 
 
 

I paired my heels with a linen blazer and dark bottom for a greater contrast. It makes the heels stand out! However, next time a wear them (wow, didn't think I would admit to that), I plan on pairing them with a completely monochromatic look.
