Nude Duster OOTD! (Work Edition)

Hello, Dolls

Today, I'm introducing a new blog series of outfit of the days...work edition! I had no intentions of chronicling my work outfits; but, I've had a few coworkers who have been asking me to. My style at work is usually simple, but chic. I like to dress for comfort, and most of my outfits are for the every day woman. Occasionally, I like to go all out at work; but, most days, I'm simple-chic.

Dusters and cardigans are one of my favorite pieces to wear to pull an otherwise, basic, ordinary outfit together, and to add a splash of color. On this day, I chose to wear a leopard skirt, and a simple top. To keep the outfit casual chic, and to add color, I added the nude long duster. Outfit deets at the bottom!






What I'm Wearing:
-Nude Duster: Lilly's Kloset
-Leopard Skirt: Rainbow Clothing
-Cami: Fashion to Figure
-Gold Flats: Payless
-Necklace: Fashion to Figure
-Rings: Mark by Avon

The Makeup Show NYC 2018!

Hello, Dolls
I hope you all are doing good. I've been doing well, just MIA. What's been going on with me? Just dealing with life's twists and turns, and trying to stay sane :-).

I got the chance to go to The Makeup Show last month! I haven't been in 4 years; so, I was so excited to attend again! I couldn't wait to listen to the seminars, and buy some products that I had been holding off on getting.






I learned...

Since I rode the bus up, it didn't allow a lot of time to take a lot of seminars. I managed to take two. First, I took How to Achieve Gleaming Skin by Melanie Mills. The second workshop that I took was The Insta-Bride: What a Girl Wants by Megan Gramers. I'll share two new ideas that I learned.

1. I learned that a small amount of  Gleam Body Radiance can be applied to foundation for glowing skin and a natural looking highlight. She also suggests using Gleam to upsell to brides and bridal parties who want an extra glow. I've also seen Gleam used f…

My Fave Things of 2017! Fashion, Books, Hobbies, Beauty and More!

Hello Dolls,

2017 is coming to a rapid close, in just a few days! I've compiled a list of my favorite things that I've been loving all year. Read on, for the details!

Fashion

1. Lilly's Kloset- Lilly's Kloset offers some of the most fashion forward clothing and accessories that I've bought within the year. My most trendiest clothing and shoes of 2017 have been purchased from Lilly’s Kloset. I bought the Multi Color Sequins Cardigan that I wrote about on a previous post from there.  Every time I think I’m going to do good and save some money, I get an email from her with a discount code. Did I mention I’m on her VIP email list?!

2. I love love love Forever 21! I can always get a  trendy, decent outfit for $25 or less, or more when I want to splurge. Their online sales are crazy, I know for at least four months straight, I was driving to the F21 store near me picking up packages that I had sent to the store. They're so addictive! I bought the One-Shoulder Jumpsui…

What I Wear on a Night Out! OOTN

Hello, Dolls
A night on the town is always fun! Like so many other people, a night out always causes me to ask myself "What am I going to wear?! " Mind you, my closet and drawers are full . . . so, a shortage of clothing is not the issue. What I really mean is "What am I going to wear that looks good; makes a statement, and everyone hasn't already seen me in?" After many attempts, I finally have at least one go-to staple that I wear when I'm going out. Read on, to find out the deets!

My go-to OOTN Staples:

1. A jumpsuit- A jumpsuit is effortless, and instantly makes you look chic and stylishly pulled together. Since it's a one-piece, it takes the guess work and time out of trying to mix & match, and coordinate colors for tops and bottoms. Wearing a jumpsuit that is either asymmetrical, off the shoulder, has a hint of sheer or lace really glams up your outfit to make a statement; on it's own!  Another plus, is that jumpsuits are almost always fig…

The Cardigan that Makes a Statement! OOTD

Hello, Dolls

Every year, I obsess over one clothing item and buy tons of it just because I love it so much; even though, my room space and bank account says "don't do it!" Last year, it was coats. This year, it's cardigans; particularly the long cardigans.

I love them because you can pair a basic top and bottom, and the cardigan pulls your outfit together, giving you a more polished, effortless appearance; especially if it has a pop of color. My favorite cardigan right now is the Multi Color Sequins Cardigan from Lilly's Kloset!!!

I wore this to a concert last night and I absolutely love it! I kept the top, bottom, and jewelry simple because the cardigan was the statement piece! Outfit deets at the bottom!


What I'm Wearing
-Multi Color Sequins Cardigan from Lilly's Kloset
-Black top from Forever 21
-Faux leather leggings from Ashley Stewart
-Pumps from Payless
-Jewelry from Fashion to Figure

Every girl needs at least one item in their wardrobe that makes y…

Queen of Hearts Look of the Day!

Hello, Dolls

I have been shopping from my makeup stash, (rediscovering products that I've had for a while, but don't use often) and I have fallen in love with the Coloured Raine: Queen of Hearts eyeshadow palette. The foil eyeshadows are so amazingly pigmented; and the shadows blend so effortlessly. I wondered why I haven't used it more. Most of the eyeshadows that I used in this look are from that palette. Here is a quick selfie pic of the look I did.

I attended a Trey Songz concert a week ago, the concert was everything!!! I'm a huge fan of Trey Songz; my sisters and I have to see him EVERY time he comes to town! I originally bought a black ruffle neck, off the shoulder jumpsuit to wear to the concert. It fitted smaller than I thought :-(
