A Meeting with Friends

Greetings Fashionistas,

Happy Friday!!!! I've been checking off items on my list both personally AND professionally. Too excited!!! Now, it's time for me to put on my army fatigues and enter the battlefield.....you know what I'm talking about, the malls and outlets!!!! Yesterday, I stopped for a quick pick up (I literally went into one section of a department store) and I was nearly knocked over by some ladies rushing towards the clearance rack. No "excuse me" or "I'm sorry"......nothing! I didn't say anything because I'm not easily provoked, but I did shoot them a mean side eye. It should never be that serious, unless you're a participant on a game show or maybe a reality show. SMH...... I had better see these same folks knocking me over to get into a church, volunteer at a shelter....or something!

Anyhew, on to the fashion. My friends and I had another get together and this time we hit up a fab hotel restaurant where we used their open garden and waterfall as the back drop for a photo op!

I bought this burnt orange blazer about a month ago.....I'm just now popping the tags off for a test drive. BTW, I label all of my purchases that I wear for the first time as a "test drive". No real reason......just being extra :-) I know this ensemble would have looked a whole lot better with a pair of pumps.....but I wanted to step outside the box a little. My comfort zone is getting too....comfy.

This jacket had a really awkward fit. I think it wasn't constructed well through the side seams. I could button it up so I know that it was the correct size.....just the wrong fit :-(  Normally I don't have a problem with blazers so I usually don't try them on. I guess I will have to start that back up again.

I'm calling out Eric for this sub par pic of my booties. They have a lovely sage green color and fab details. Too much lighting here to see......

The place we visited was a sushi lounge. It was gorgeous and no....I didn't take pics because I was too busy running my mouth. You would think I would have the hang of this thing by now *insert shoulder shrug here*

I told you guys that Dawana was a style and hair chameleon, lol. My homie is F-L-Y!!!

Hot bag D.....would be great as a Christmas gift to ya girl, LOL!!!!!

Eric was clearly influenced by the upcoming Sherlock Holmes movie. Nah, I'm kidding, but that cape is super FIERCE!!!! Eric really knows how to use simple pieces to create a fab, fashion forward outfit. I need that cape tho bruh!

Such a handsome guy.....and he stays so little..... but eats soooo much. I hate you dude!!! LOL!
