Yesterday we went to see the movie “Straight Outta Compton.” It was really poignant and conjured up a lot of memories for me. I was coming of age when NWA burst upon the scene. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Eazy E was so witty and funny. Jason Mitchell did a great job conveying this side of his personality. Ice Cube’s son’s portrayal as his dad was stellar. And the soundtrack was banging. I couldn’t help but sing along as I knew most of the lyrics, lol.
The weather was nice but on the cool side.
Thus I threw something together that would help keep me warm despite the polar air that they blast in the theatre.
This skirt is six years old and SO mini that the duster was perfect.

My dear friend is in town from Abu Dhabi and she came bearing gifts from her travels to Bali and Beijing. This is jumper is one of them.
I love this! The color, the fit, and the style. It’s sooooo comfortable and cute! I wish I had more!
I was traipsing around Target the other day and stumbled upon these beauties:
I don’t know who Vegas Nay is, but her Grand Glamor eyelashes are exquisite. The box says “lightweight” but they did feel a little heavy after the initial application.
I felt so sultry with them on, lol. I love the multiple layer effect.
I had a fabulous day at the IMA. I took my boys to see the awesome Dream Cars exhibit. One of the other exhibits I visited was couture fashion. Here is a peek of what I saw!
The layout was very sleek and sophisticated.
Although most of the pieces were from yesteryear, it was exquisite and I would wear much of what I saw.
Fashion is definitely a work of art!
Yes to the dress!
And these as well…
Adorable print in the blue.
I have my eye on two things at the moment, both so pretty and girly. The first is a pair of pale pink heels with an oversized bow by Jeffrey Campbell. I really, really like these!
This is known as a bum” bag in Great Britain aka a fanny pack in America. I know that they might not be in style, but this one is so stylish. The sequins glam it up a notch. Plus, these bags are totally convenient.
What’s on your most wanted list? Do tell!
I have many pairs of shoes, but not of all types. I have lots of heels, sandals, and tennis shoes. However, I recently noticed that I only have one pair of casual flats!
Don’t get me wrong-love my high heels, but even I must admit that they are not always practical. Especially the older I get. Also, I don’t like walking in them on uneven surfaces because it wears them down faster. When I go to work in the mornings, I put my heels in my bag and put them on in the building to avoid walking in them on the rough parking lot.
So it looks like I’ll be investing in some casual flats in the near future!
It’s getting hot outside! I thought I’d take my kids out of their usual element to get some work down. Of course I couldn’t resist snapping a few pics.
I’ve worn this skirt several times before and I love it. It’s such a classic look. I paired it with a simple, white short sleeve button up, and camel colored sandals.
