Cosby Sweater Chic

Hey Beauties! Boy this has been a busy week for me and its only Tuesday lol! Well, I started my new job and I love it. I'm sure you're thinking this is premature, but I really love it. My co-workers are nice and helpful; ahh I love it! LOL Anywho, the outfit pictures were taken months ago. My friend and I had a late lunch and I asked her to take a few outfit pics for me. Isn't she a great friend?! I think so! lol

First let me say that I love this sweater. My dad would kill me for saying this, but this sweater was actually his many years ago. Yep, I rock menswear occasionally lol! I fell in love with this sweater because of the leather shoulder patches. How cool is that?! I call is the "Cosby" sweater because it reminds me of the show. Mr. Cosby always wore sweaters that looked chic, comfy and cozy. 

What is your fashion inspired by?

Denim on Denim

Hey ya'll *insert wave*!
I miss you guys so much! I hope each of you had a wonderful weekend. As for me, I had a awesome weekend filled with family, friends and tons of laughter. Also, I start my new job on January 30th and I'm beyond excited. I was so outdone when someone from Human Resources called me with an offer. So you know what that means, right? Yep, it means my days of being a Barista at Starbucks are finally over!!!! After being there for 5 years, I'm so ready to move into my career of choice. I would like to thank each of your encouragement throughout this process and most of all I would like to thank God!

Sorry I got long winded lol!

Wearing denim on denim is such a faux pas in the fashion world. I know the person that came up with that "rule", but I swear if I saw him/her I would give 'em a swift kick in the knee lol! I believe wearing denim on denim pieces are amazingly beautiful, especially when the colors are different. Here's my take on it:









Are you a fan of pairing denim on denim?

Houston Blogger Meetup



Hey Beauties!
This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the 1st meetup for Houston Fashion Bloggers. I was beyond excited to meet all the the lovely ladies I admired and stalked  followed. The coordinator of the meetup was Shasie of  Life Life in Style. She's such a doll and I'm so thankful that she created the group.

Here are a few pics from the event!

I was in the middle of explaining something lol!
Aren't these ladies gorgeous?!

Sequins Lover!


Hey Beauties!
I'm so excited to participate in THIS Bloggers Do It Better Challenge! After all, I do have a bit of a love affair with all things sparkly especially sequins. I know you've seen this top before, but I love it so much! If I love something, I love it #pointblankperiod! Besides, what's the point of having clothes if you can't wear them more than once, twice, bazillion times?!  So my friends, you've been warned! I'll definitely be wearing this skirt and top a lot!








Should Sequins be worn only at night?
What are current fav articles of clothing?

OMG its Friday *insert Tootsie Roll dance* LOL!
Have a great weekend everyone!
