Individually Fashionable

If there’s one thing I love about all my fashionista friends it’s their individuality. Fashion to them isn’t just about getting dressed for the day, it’s about expressing who they are. Besides, long gone are the days of the old fashion faux pas. When was the last time you matched your shoes to your handbag?Today, trends like mixing prints and color blocking prove that it’s OK to be fashionably different. Although, there are some trends…

China Glaze’s Cha Cha Cha

As the fourth color I’ve worn in the Island Escape collection, China Glaze’s Cha Cha Cha reminds me a lot of the shoes I just posted about (below).I was kind of worried about this color. I thought it was a dark green, but it turns out it’s a lot lighter than I thought if would be. It probably has to do with it’s shimmer and light glitter base. Actually, it reminds me of a parrot.…

Green with Envy

I’m in the mood for color, as you can tell. First coral, now this lime green “Intense Sandal” by Two Lips. A statement shoe like this could really brighten up any outfit. Especially, an all white ensemble. I have decided I really need these in my closet. What do you think?

Seeing Coral with ASOS Curve

If there’s one color that compliments any skin tone, I’d have to say it’s coral. This mix between pink and orange is definitely a year-round color. ASOS knows that it is too. This is one of my favorite colors to wear. Just look at all the pieces below. I will admit, I want them all. When don’t I? Fashion is so addicting! LOL

Why You Should Love Yard Sales

I’ve been going to yard sales (a.k.a rummage sales and garage sales) since I was little kid and I’ve even hosted a few. And now that summer is almost here, there are going to be tons of them and I can’t wait. This morning I attended one held by Stylist Reah Norman. Now, if you’re going to attend a yard sale, you definitely want to go to one held by a stylist. Reah is a close…

Beauty Buzz: Gillette’s Venus Spa Breeze Razor

I’m going to make this beauty review short and sweet. I am in love with the Gillette Venus Spa Breeze razor. Seriously, I’ve been shaving my legs since I was a pre-teen and I have never had such a close shave. It’s pretty awesome for someone like me with coarse hair. Is that T.M.I.? Well, whatever it’s true.Do you know what else I love about the Spa Breeze? It’s the fact that you will never…

L.A. Sunset and an Outfit

This is what I wore out tonight for dinner in Santa Monica. It was just a quick thrown together outfit. I grabbed my hubby to take the pics before the sun set. I don’t know if you can tell, but the sun was glaring into my eyes. LOL. These skinny jean capris are from Old Navy , this flowy crop top is from T.J.Maxx, and these are my new wedges from Aldo. Love them!!

Jeffrey Campbell has my Attention

Tonight, I went out to dinner with my hubby, brother, and cousin. We headed out to Santa Monica Promenade, where I used to work, and after dinner we visited a shoe store. That’s where I fell in love with a pair of Jeffrey Campbell wedges. Of course, I’ve known about Jeffrey Campbell, but his styles never really caught my eye…until tonight. I went online and found a few pairs that I wouldn’t mind owning. I…

City Chic’s Pretty Frilly Chiffon Dress

The minute I saw City Chic’s Pretty Frilly Chiffon Dress I knew it was destined to be mine. This is what I wore on Mother’s Day. I was a little surprised when I got the dress, because it looks white on their web site, it’s actually an ivory color. It fit great and it was really comfortable. The ruffles on the chest are so cute! I did change the patent leather belt out. I wore…

Pretty Cardigan in Pretty Peach

This may surprise you, but I used to hate wearing bright colors. OK, you might have heard me say that before. But, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I’m still on the fence about bright colors, but one of my shopping partners in crime is slowly getting me out of my “dark clothes comfort zone.” On a side note…I just went back and took a look at my old outfit post and I…
