1 SKIRT 3 WAYS!

Can it be done?! Oh hell yes (In my Mya Wiltz voice) lol! I must admit, I was a little skeptical myself.  In spite of the skepticism, I gave it a try.  I think the overall finished product came out nicely.  What do you guys thing? I tried to have a casual, dressy and a going out look.  After this challenge I decided I won't buy anything that isn't multi-functional.  Who wants an item of clothing that can only be worn 1 way? Not me, lol! Hopefully this post will show you various ways of sporting the same key piece.  I encourage you all to dig in those closets & find pieces that can be worn various ways!

Have a great weekend!

Fashion Lust

Mellow Yellow

I always thought yellow wasn't MY color.  You know that whole doesn't go with my skin tone thing, right!?  I've had this top for years and regretfully only sported it a few times.  On this particular day I decided to give it a shot. I love how the outfit turned out, don't you??? Okay let's move on to handbag! I found this beauty at a local thrift store in San Antonio.  The place was about to close and I was determined to buy it lol! I mean come on, it was only $4! #winning 


What are some items you have tucked away in your closet? I saw bring 'em out & work *two snaps* that item!!!!

Trend Alert!





So the color blocking trend has bloggersville going nuts!  After seeing this trend, it was love at first sight!  I've longed for the perfect opportunity to rock this trend; by opportunity I mean a "nothing to wear"day!  Yesterday seemed like the perfect day to take on this trend whoo hoo! After trying on a couple  several outfits, I decided to throw on my fav maxi skirt.  I absolutely LOVE this skirt! The color is to die for and it's so comfy.  Houston summer = comfy clothing : )

Anywho, after deciding on the skirt, the outfit took on a life of it's own; the white tee, blazer, and shoes.
FYI you guys may see this skirt a lot this summer!

What are you fav items to sport during the summer months? Have you tried the color blocking trend? Let me know guys, I would love to hear back for you all!

Smooches!

Sunday Funday



Today was kinda funky! One minute the sun was shining ever so brightly and the next it's pouring down raining whomp whomp.  In spite of the crazy weather I consider today an awesome day ; ) I hung out with my family pretty much the entire day; we had a blast! On days like this, I'm reminded of how essential MY family's presence is in my life.  Okay, enough with the sappy stuff lol! Today I sported something comfortable yet chic. Denim always sets the mood for a fab outfit...well at least in my book lol!  I decided to wear my DIY cuffed shorts with a top I bought centuries ago (not really).  At the last minute I threw on my black cardigan & sandals.  Last minute outfits always make the best debuts in Fashion Land! I hope you guys have a fabulous, productive week! See you soon & thanks for reading.

Bold & The Beautiful



A while back I purchased this AMAZING blouse from a local Thrift Store.  The bold print instantly drew me to the blouse & of course I fell even more in love once I saw the price lol! In addition, to this beauty, I stumbled upon this pleated skirt! I'm a sucker for a bold print & pleats insert happy dance here. I sported this number around town with my fav platforms from Target! Their soooo comfortable! Who ever said a curvy chick couldn't wear a mini-skirts, was sadly mistaken lol!

Hope you guys enjoy & thanks for reading!

It's summer time and you're clueless about what works for YOUR body type. Chile let me tell ya! Summer time is full of skin-baring & creating great memories. Don't be the only one sporting shorts & a top to the local beach! Ladies, get off your fannie & sport that fabulous swimsuit! I've compiled a few of my fav swimsuits in hopes that you'll be inspired to WORK it *two snaps* this summer!

Thrift Savvy



FACT: I'm addicted to thrifting! I seriously need to attend a T.A. meeting- Thrifters Anonymous lol! Anywho, while on another thrifting adventure, I stumbled upon these beauties.  FYI this skirt is amazing, I'm in love with the print; it's so abstract! Is that possible?! The dress, omg the dress; I DIE! The fit of this dress is absolutely gorgeous! Mind you, it's totally sheer & lightweight.   Which means I'll have to wear some sort of biker shorts underneath. The bold, daring dress will be used as a cover-up while on my vacation in Vegas. The jewelry speaks for itself.

Are you into thrifting? If not, I advise you to get into it lol!

Thanks for reading!
