Embellished Romper




Hi everyone, so this is what I wore to the graduation party on saturday; an embellished tribal prints romper. I had the fabric for years including the neck appliqué and I just didn't know what to make with it until rompers and jumpsuits came back on the scene this summer and I was like bam!!…:-). You know I used to have this habit of going to the fabric store on weekends in the summer to purchase fabrics until I ended up with yards and yards of fabric that have not been made into anything. I'm still hoping I'll learn how to sew someday then I can whip out all the fancy sketches in my head…:-).

Well, my seamstress made this romper and the only thing that differentiates it from most rompers I have seen so far is the neck piece. I ended up not using any necklace; just put on a pair of ear-rings and my purple Jessica Simpson cut out collie pumps. The color for the party was purple so somehow everything fell into place. I took these pictures at the end of the evening with my iPad when I was all tired and just wanted to document the event/picture on the blog anyway. The pictures did not do the romper much justice but I did get a couple of complements.




                                                             Romper: Custom made
                                                                                 Shoes: Jessica Simpson


Thanks so much for stopping by; wishing you all the best of God's goodness for the rest of the week.

Little bit of Color



Hi Lovelies, so it looks like its been a while. I hope everyone is doing great. I had a very busy weekend and another busy one ahead of me. One of my friends had her graduation party on Saturday and I was very much involved with the planning all the way. This was how I stepped out on Saturday on my way to the venue to help with the decor. I wanted to be comfortable and a little stylish at the same time. For comfort, it was all about the tank top and white shirt and for style, the cap toe flats was a huge dose of color. I know cap toe shoes are out of style somewhat but who cares! **rolling my eyes**….:-)

I ended up wearing a custom made romper to the graduation party but I was not able to take good pics and  I will upload one or two pictures later that I took with my phone. Also, I have two birthday parties to attend this upcoming weekend and though I'm still aching from all the planning activity of last weekend, I'm looking forward to the next one. Hey, it's summer and we are almost half way through so, it's time to enjoy the nice weather.







                                                                       


 I just wanted to say a quick hi and I would certainly stop by at all your blogs when my schedule stabilizes. A big thank-you to all the friends who stopped by to comment and say hi on my last post. I was surprised to find out that some comments ended up in my spam folder and I have no idea how that happened. I hope I did not leave out any comment at the end of the day. Thanks so much guys and see you soon on your blogs. **Kisses**

Hi Friends, so have you heard the news? If you live in America or North America, you might have heard of the impending summer chill; Polar Vortex or whatever name it is being called by the meteorologists? Can you imagine that? Cold snap in the middle of summer when we are supposed to be having 90 degrees weather and swimming in the pools and beaches or sipping on cold lemonades under  sun umbrellas? Well, it might not be that bad for those that live in the warm southern states. For those of us that live in the arctic region, **clears throat** it is time to go and get out the light spring jackets again. The Meteorologists predict it will only last for a few days but let's wait and see. It seems like I ordered my trench coat just in time after all; **smiling face**

These are some of the trenchy looks I put together on polyvore with a hint of animal prints. I do not own any of these expensive designer items in these collages but I own a trench coat and it might just come in handy the next couple of days.

How is the week going for everyone? I hope great. I have a couple of events to attend in the next few days and I am still thinking of what and what is coming out of the closet. Have you been taking a look at my scripture/inspiration gadget at the top right hand corner of my blog? A scripture a day is real medicine for the soul and takes all the stress of life away.

Trench In..







Hi lovelies, I hope everyone is doing great and feeling blessed. I'm walking on sunshine though it's been drizzling in Minnesota on and off the whole day…:-). You want to know why? I'm close to getting all the items on my "What I want for summer list" I took advantage of the recent semi annual sale at Victoriassecret and purchased this trench coat that was on my list. It was originally $198.00 but it's currently on sale for $138.00. Now, I can give my old worn out leather trench coat a break. Living in a state that has longer months of winter and spring, I think it is a great idea to own at least two trench coats. My old trench is simple and cute while this new addition is chic and stylish. The leather trimmings give it an edgy look. Now, as I strike one more item off my list, I'm feeling blessed and thankful.

There are so many sales going on right now in stores and this might just be the time to buy some of those favorite pieces on your list. Some people get shy or embarrassed to say they got something on sale or off the clearance rack but not me!…:-). I like a good sale any day. I have never been much of a jewelry lady but I have been getting some pieces here and there since I started blogging. These are some of the pieces I might just strike off my list.

The Haul in the yellow Package


Hi Friends; I finally got to take pictures of the contents of the Forever 21 package that I talked about in this post here. These are some of the pieces I would be wearing this summer and if you have perused previous posts on this blog you might have seen some of these items in some of my Polyvore collages here and here. The HGTV magazine was used as a prop to throw in some color to the black and white pieces; also one of my favorite magazines to read. Yeah, that silver sterling bracelet was also purchased at Forever 21 on clearance for less than $6 bucks. I hope everyone is having a great week so far.





                                                                     Stay blessed and thanks for stopping by.

My 4th of July







Happy Independence day America! 

Hi beauties; I hope you all are having a great weekend so far. For the readers in the USA, I wish you a happy 4th weekend celebration. I started my holiday early since I have been off work since wednesday.  Yesterday was spent indoors for the most part then we went out in the evening to visit some friends and watch the fire works. As usual for me, the outfit colors for the day were white blue and red. You can never go wrong with those colors as there are so many combinations and variations you can do with it as regards styling.


The celebration continues today. It is also one of my friend's birthday today so, I will be stopping over at her place later on. I have been trying so hard not to eat too much but I enjoy the quality time I am spending with my peeps. Did you dress up in patriotic colors for the 4th? Please share…
