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.
