Lovely Lace

Sorry about all the bathroom mirror shots guys. I haven’t had any one around to take pictures of me.

So I was at the library and they had a full length mirrior. I felt totally dressed for Fall my favorite season.

You really can’t see in the picture but I have on this amazing lace overlay bra. So you don’t have to wear a cami and you’re not showing everything. The one I have on is Milana Bra by Genie. This bra is so pretty and comfy.

What I have on: Top Denim & Company-QVC, Milana Bra-QVC, Skirt-Avenue (very old), Tights- Ashley Stewart, and Boots-Payless

Red, Green & Blue

Solid colors anyone? If you haven’t noticed already I don’t wear patterns or prints that much. This day was no exception. I love this top from Target. Red is such a powerful color and this top can be worn in a number of different ways.
This day I matched it with a pair of new jeans, I just got, and my 2 year old purse from Target also. Yes, their purses do last if you treat them well.
The jeans fit really great to my surprise. I always have a hard time with jeans being 6’1 and size 22-24-26 it’s not easy. However these are actually too long for me, but I’m totally keeping them. I got them from Roaman’s part of their denim24/7 collection.
Check out the cute little heart on the back pocket. Be Blessed & Smile

Denim Sack

I have never been a fan of Sack Dresses, thiking they would make me look larger. So imagine my suprise when I fell in love with this dress. I was out with my sister on our bi-weekly trifting trip when this cute number caught my eye. I had to have it. The best part is it was only $3.99. I love thrifting. The flower detial is so pretty plus it has pocket. SCORE!!!

"Flats" Obsession


The first picture is the Flats I already own. I included the boots because their Flats too.

The second is my wish list. The ones I will own soon.

I love Flats. I love Flats the way others live high heels.
So you can imagine how happy I am that my go to shoe retailer, Payless, has expanded there offering to include my size 13W in more colors.
Thank you, Payless for recognizing that even my size 13's want cute shoes too.

The Journey Begins

On April 14, I posted my acceptance letter from UDC CC (University of the District of Columbia Community College). Well, stuff happened and I was unable to start school at that time.

Today however is a new day, so know its official, I am a college student.  My first day is September 1.

Its funny how life works. I loss my job & became a college student in the same week. I'm not sure how I will pay the bills but I am going to finish this journey this time around.

I have an interview already.

First timer Style effects by Sally Hansen

Was in Target a week ago found this in the clearance rack. You might not be able to clearly see the price but it says $2.87. The original price was $9.95.

This design is Studio-IO Time.

It ended up being easier then I thought. Plus its cute. I'm not really into spending money at the nail salon so this is an awesome option for me.

My life of unrest

I haven't posted anything in so long & believe me I've been missing it.

My life has become a lot more difficult when I made the decision to go after my dreams & goals. I've been hurt by those I thought were friends, accused by my management at work of wrong doing & unexpected bills have come up to take the money I'm saving to pay for my dreams.

So here's a picture of me smiling, because that's what I have to do through this process.

My smile, my praise & my thankfulness will be my weapons through this storm.

I'm back.

Love a Sale

I went into my local Payless to check out a purse I saw in the window. Then I spoted this cute crossbody bag behind all the other purses. I think someone was trying to hide it. Anyway, I checked out the price on sale for $10. Score for me. Do you see how long the strap is, love it. A lot of crossbody bags don't really cross my body but this one is great.

Then while waiting in line to pay I notice this little guy. You can't really tell but its a lizard with red eyes. So cute. To my surprise he was on sale too, $3.00.

Payless you rock. Not just because your one of the few places that sale my size shoe (13W) but you stepped up your game with your assessories. Great job.

Comfy & Cute

I had a great time yesterday at my niece's birthday BBQ. I wanted to look cute but be comfy enough to eat without worry.  My family's events are a foodies dream come try. So I knew I was going to eat.

On a recent trip to my local thrift shop I found this really cute dress; $2.99. Love thrifting.

I normally would belt this, but like I said I knew I would be really enjoying the food. You can't see it in this pic but I paired it with black leggings; I'm 6'1, so on me this was a little short; & a pair of black flats.

By the way I found my Royal Blue Skinny jeans for my First Lady challenge. I'm still looking for that yellow cardigan in my budget.

My Challenge

First Lady Obama is always stylish; in casual wear, professional or evening gowns. She always manages to look great.

I on the hand don't do casual wear that well. If you look in my closet you'll find a lot of professional wear. So when I saw this picture it inspired me. I'm challenging myself to recreate this outfit; within my budget.

So far I've found the cardigan (on sale) & the tank.

The color jeans & shoes are giving me some difficultly.  I am 6'1 & wear a size 13W in shoes. Tall jeans in cobalt blue size 22-24 is really a challenge.

I going to over come this challenge, this may just be the thing that moves me to buy more fun casual pieces. I'm giving myself to the end of this month. Shipping and delievery takes time. I'll post my result soon.

Be Blessed & Smile.

New Journey

The picture your see is bad but its a acceptance letter to my local Community College. I've decided to take steps to follow my dreams; so back to school I go. 
How does this relate to a blog mostly about fashion? My degree will be in Fashion Merchandising & Entrepreneurship. The plan right now is to open my own boutique. I say right now because dreams and goals are always evolving.   The journey begins this June.

Big Hair Shiny Top

I recently colored my hair. It didn’t come out the color I was looking for, but this color is nice.  With the new color I wear it out, in all its glory, a lot more.


Top & pants from Lane Bryant years ago.  When I say these two pieces were brought years ago I’m talking more then for years. Shout out to Lane Bryant for making quality clothes that last.  Well worth the money.


You can’t see the shoes but I have on a pair great kitten heel sling backs from Masseys size 13W.  I’ll have a pic of those soon.

My Birthday Dress

I got home last night and checked the mail. I was so happy I received a preview & coupon for Ashley Stewart. They are announcing their Spring dress line. I open and see the wonderful yellow ruffle dress. I love it.

I went straight there to try it on today. They had just pulled it out the plastic.    

The lighting in fitting rooms is terrible, but there was no one around to take the pic for me. I don't look exactly like the model but that's what body sharpers are made for. I still love this dress.
I'm getting it for my birthday March 25th.

Thanks Ashley Stewart for the coupon or it would be outside my budget.
I will be showing the final outfit Sunday, March 25th my 35th birthday.  So excited.

I love colors

I woke up this morning thinking what will I wear today.

The weather in DC has been so great this week. It feels like spring is here. So time to put away the dark colors & bring out the bright. I decide turquoise & fushia would be great color blocking.

My rockstar heels

OK I'm 6'1 & over 300lb, so I don't really wear heels to much but these I love. I've had them for 2 years now. Every time I put them on I feel bad ass. LOL. Got them from Avenue. Up to size 13 ladies, which I am.

I wanted to take a pic with them on but I could find anyone to take it so next time.
Best shoe purchase ever.
