Summer Floral Blazing...

Happy Thursday....

My first work week of commuting is coming to an end today.. I am excited to be heading back home to my favorite men (the boo & pups) this evening after work. I am blessed to have wonderful friends who are helping make this new season in my life go smoothly, by allowing me to stay with them during the week when I'm working. I truly appreciate them and everyone who supports this transition we are going through, and helping us make it work!!

Thank You... Thank You.. Thank You :)

Now on to today's OOTD.... wearing the beautiful vintage floral blazer. As summer is coming to an end, I want to wear some of my favorite Summer pieces! This is a Salvation Army find paired with F21 Skinny Jeans and tank and Charlotte Russe sandals.

Have a wonderful day and Enjoy!!!

Denim Ruffles and Khaki Pencil

Happy Monday to ya...

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I had a great one, spent time with friends celebrating a good friends birthday. She had a Luau themed party, with volleyball, hula hoop, limbo and of course Phase 10. I also got most of my packing done for my move this coming Saturday, so I feel very accomplished starting off this week :).

Today's outfit is a Thrift Gem.. I'd been looking for a denim ruffle shirt since last year, and I got lucky last week and found this entire outfit.  The shirt is a Ralph Lauren Denim label, and the skirt from Banana Republic both were $3.00. Added my leopard print JC Dupes and wide belt and the outfit was complete.

Enjoy your day and the pics

Vintage Crop Blazer and Flares

Happy Friday Dolls and Gents....

Glad it's the weekend and I'm looking forward to some fun festivities. Will be celebrating a friends bday at her Luau themed birthday party, doing a closet makeover for a friend, and of course more packing, but that's last on the list LOL..

Today OOTD is a thrift special, every piece is under $5. Found this fun Lime Green and White crop blazer at Salvation Army a couple weeks back, these flare jeans were a TJ Maxx clearance gem I found last winter, and my shoes were $9.99 and half off during the Charlotte Russe Black Friday clearance sale.  As my blogger buddy Cherrie Amore' says... " Make the Inexpensive look Expensive"... my kinda of outfit :)

Enjoy the pictures and have a wonderful weekend :)

Watercolor Wrap Dress....

Wednesday Wrap Dress...

Purchased this Banana Republic Silk Wrap dress from Crossroads Trading a few weeks ago, it was $17.50 with additional 50% off. I love shopping recycled clothing because you find the best deals on current on trend items.  The colors and pattern remind me of a water color painting. Wore my pink platform pumps from Charlotte Russe as a pop of color, and lime dangley earrings, with minimal jewelry.

Enjoy your Wednesday :)

Inspired Denim Dress....

Good morning and Happy Monday to ya ...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I spent the majority of mine, cleaning, purging and packing. I'll be moving in two weeks and it's been a bit overwhelming now that I have to pack up ALL my shoes and clothes. Didn't realize I had so much ish... lol.. well I did but I wasn't concerned about moving it before haha. So I've added tons of New, Gently Used and Vintage items to my Closet Blow Out Sale... new pics will be posted later today. Stop by and check it out. Items will be priced to SALE Fast... $2 Blazers, $3 Vintage Dresses, $5 Shoes... tons of pants, skirts, tops etc..

Today's outfit was inspired by the beautiful lady of The Shoe Gawker she wore a gorgeous denim mini dress with a cut-out back detail, that I just loved. I recently purchased a vintage denim dress from the Salvation Army for $2, and decided to shorten it by 12 inches, to achieve this flirty mini dress style. I LOVE LOVE her dress, but I think my dress turned out pretty good, if I had sewing skills I'd attempt the cut out back detail, but I'll stick to what I can do LOL. 

Here are our looks side by side... be sure to stop by and check out The Shoe Gawker blog. You will definitely be inspired by her funky style.

What I Wore:
Dress - SA Thrift $2
Wedges - Charlotte Russe $9.99
Belt  - BCBG (Old)
