“Chocteal”

20 Nov

Believe it or not, this ENTIRE outfit is over ten years old! The shrug sweater, camisole, and skirt are all from Ann Taylor’s Loft. I loved the skirt upon first glance. And the colors are perfect for fall.

I decided to layer two necklaces to add dimension and spice. I finished off with teal colored stud earrings and light brown pearls on my arm.

Posh in Plaid

15 Nov

I saw this plaid duster on Nasty Gal and liked it immediately. Obviously so did Rasheeda as her she is rocking it as you can see.

I thought of a couple of ways to wear it, the first being with holey jeans, a white tank top, neutral color boots, and gold jewelry to accent.

I also tried it on with a pair of leather shorts and black pumps. This look was a little more racy and not as casual as the first.

It would look cute as well with denim cutoffs and a pair of red peep toe cowgirl boots that I have, just disregard the huge run I have in my hose, lol.

Sweater Weather

14 Nov

Brrrr, it’s cold outside! I found this cute little number 80% off at Kohl’s which made it a whopping $10.80. I paired it with a baby blue button down to accentuate the hue in the sweater and grey slacks and heels for a business casual feel. I was pleased with the end result.

Snow Leopard

10 Nov

Today’s outfit was a total of $50 via the clearance section and a sale at Kohl’s from the Jennifer Lopez line, lol.

I’m aware of the no white after Labor Day, however, I don’t abide by it. I love the crispness of the white skirt paired with the exotic leopard print.

Usually not a turtleneck fan but this one fits nicely. And the fabric is so soft against my skin.

Heels: Jessica Simpson

Blush

6 Nov

I put this outfit together on a whim. I wanted to wear a grey sweater with a white button down underneath, however, I could not detach the black tutu from my lone grey sweater, lol. So I had to resort to plan b.

I remembered I hung on to this plaid jacket which fit the color scheme nicely. I paired it with a ruched button down, and a pair of slim fit trousers from The Limited (clearance). Usually I wear super high heels but I settled for soft dove grey kitten heels today. I added pearls around my neck and to my ears-and it was a wrap!

Plaid Please

5 Nov

It’s that time of year when the air is crisp, the leaves are falling, hot chocolate is served, sweaters are plentiful, football is played, and the fabrics of fall are a major part of the autumn season.

Lashed

15 Jun

I wanted to add a little “drama” to my day time look and decided to try Eylure lashes. I bought them for $7.99 from Target. I chose style number 202 “Dramatic” which was perfect for the look I was after. I’m guessing that they are a British company based upon the Union Jack flag on the box.

The lashes applied easily despite having a double layer. The kit came with adhesive as well as an applicator tool. It also had pictorial applying instructions. However, I opted not to use the supplied adhesive and instead bought Duo adhesive in black as it looks more natural than the white stuff.

I was pleased with the end result. I feel so pretty and feminine with them on, lol.
