Will UK’s Simply Be please hurry and come to the U.S. already! I’m drooling over here! I know they will be here this summer, but this shopaholic is getting impatient.
Look at this Simply Yours swim wear! I can’t stop staring at the Panache (polka dots) Swimsuit. I am looking for a cover-up too. Something that isn’t boring and a waste of money. Why is it always so hard to find a decent swimsuit?
After seeing these pics of the gorgeous Alicia Keys, I started yearning for a hot pair of sunglasses. Not just any sunglasses, but a pair of square-ish shaped sunglasses. I don’t know what it is about me and this awesomely amazing accessory! This is the one item, that I don’t mind $pending money on. The pair of Coach sunglasses I have now are almost 3 years old. And they are still in great shape. I love them! I guess you can say that sunglasses are my kryptonite. Now, if only I can figure out what brand Alicia is wearing and I’ll be a happy camper. Oh…FYI…I want all of these pairs below!

It’s wedding season!! Yay! I love weddings…actually I love…LOVE! I’m a sucker for love. I’m not ashamed to admit it. With love, sometimes comes marriage. Speaking of marriage, I just so happen to be a bridesmaid in my cousin’s wedding. I can’t wait. I’m super excited! Yesterday, we celebrated her “tea party” themed bridal shower. It was so much fun! Isn’t she beautiful!! She’s hilarious! Look it’s my mommy too! The wedding is next month, so stay tuned for more bridal pics to come!!
If you’re on twitter, then you might have seen me tweeting about the dress I’m wearing. I wasn’t sure if I wanted it or not. I don’t usually wear large prints like this, but I thought I’d try something different. I haven’t worn a maxi dress in ages. I almost forgot how comfortable they are!
Honestly, I can’t say that I have a favorite fashion designer as I generally don’t shop in that category. I do love the Michael by Michael Kors line, because of his simple, chic, and classic designs. His looks are very much my style, and they’re fairly affordable! Marc Jacobs’ designs are serious eye candy for me, though.
What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?
A full face of makeup! I am one of those girls that cannot leave the house without makeup on. I feel drab and lacking polish when I don’t have any makeup on.
If you were allowed to create a beauty product, what would it be and what would you name it?
Probably a magical bloat eliminator. We all have those days when we feel utterly bloated and unattractive, right? I think it would be great to have a magical product that would restore us to our normal unbloated state. Let’s call it Bloat Be-Gone!
If you only had 10 minutes to pack for a fashion extravaganza in your favorite city, what would you bring and where would it be?
I’d love to have a fashion extravaganza in London. I would pack comfortable yet stylish flats, a black pencil skirt, a polka dot blouse, and a cropped blazer. That’s a very “me” look.
Do you live by a fashion philosophy or quote? What is it?
I don’t live by any one fashion philosophy in particular, but I am a firm believer that being stylish does not depend on the size of your body or the size of your bank account.
If there’s one thing I’ve figured out ,while writing this blog, it’s that I don’t wear enough hats. Hats are an accessory a lot of us might not think about when putting together a spring or summer look. Which is kind of funny, because in the early 1900’s it was considered disgraceful to walk outside of your home without a hat and a pair of gloves! Imagine?
Today, there are many different styles of hats. You might have even seen a lot of fashionistas out there wearing the straw panama or fedora hat. Cute, but I’m looking for a hat to wear to the beach this summer. In fact, I’d love to get my hands on a big floppy hat. I saw a few today that I’m considering. I can’t wait to hit the beach! Do you already have your summer hat?
I’ve been seeing a lot of mesh around lately…and I wondered if I was daring enough to wear it. I think I would if it was on a shoe. These are really HOT and could add enough punch to any outfit. Very daring!
