Not much of a Lookbook today, as I am still playing catch-up with the regular things in life after coming off a wonderful vacation.

However, this is my casual outfit I wore to work today. Which was, for me, an extremely long day.

Again...I appreciate all who have entered my giveaway. For those of you who haven't entered, please go here to do so. I will announce the winner June 5th. Good Luck!!

Linked up Wednesdays...Labels


H&M Tank / Old Navy Skirt

I look so darn tired! I am...with classes, work and the girl in everything, I'm worn out!

Anywho...

So this week I've attached some of my favorite online labels (stores); some I buy, some I don't but love to take a look at what goodies they may have. So here they are...

A.P.C. - This online store has the best clothing, shoes, etc... for both men and women. They even sell their own music.

American Apparel of course!

Express Fashion

MEXX - They have the cutest casual wear. The only thing is, I remember seeing this label in one store in NY. I just don't remember where.

Acne Outlet - Love their clothes! I actually have a couple tops I bought from here...yes, I'd lost my mind. Even though I got them at sale prices...I broke the bank regardless.

Blogger is beginning to suck! You have no idea what I had to go thru in order to post tonight. I don't even have words. I've had an exhausting day anyway, so I guess I'm off to bed. Good night :)

How Has Blogging Changed the Way I Dress Today?

Someone sent me an email asking how has blogging my outfits changed how I dress today. I actually had to think about the question; go back and look at some of my past outfits, and study what I wore & how I wore it.

Again, I'm a casual dresser. I'm not all about the glitz & glamour on an everyday basis. I love my jeans, T's, maxi dresses & skirts, and my shirt dresses. I love wearing wedges more so than heels; would prefer wearing sneakers everyday. I'm not a trendy individual, but I do love the trends that have come and gone.

My conclusion...there hasn't been a dramatic change; except for maybe one factor--I've added a bit more color to my wardrobe. I stuck with my neutrals and basics (black, brown, grey). So I've noticed that I may take a basic, and add some color to it. It's been gradual, but it's a small change.

I've actually slowed my shopping down as well. I have so much stuff in my closet, I felt it was time to actually wear it or sell it. So I guess another change is that I shop less.

Therefore I haven't changed my dress that much. I stay close to what is ME. It's fun blogging. It's fun looking at other fashion sites. It's fun reading what everyone is sharing.

That's it...so how has blogging changed the way you dress today?

I've been busy. I so need a vacation, but I guess I can wait a couple more months before that takes place. Where do I start? ... Yesterday I had tons of errands to run, and was my daughter's personal driver as well. She had a photo shoot, we did a little grocery shopping, and later on in the day I went to go party like a rockstar with my girl Lori. It was her hubby's birthday and she had given him a party; close friends & family only.

I helped her get some things ready, like the cheese and sausage platter, the fruit salad and ...that's about it. Soon people started arriving and it was loads of fun!!!

I had to leave a little early, but the 5 hours I was there, it was AWESOME!

This is what I wore to the party.

Today my daughter had a private casting for Cinderella's Closet model search. It was 4 hours long! She had to go thru some catwalks, photo shoots, and posing techniques. Cinderella is to make their final choices by tomorrow or Tuesday. However, it turns out my daughter was the last to be interviewed and when I arrived to pick her up, they congratulated her, as she is one of 20 models to be in their 2012 Catalog and runway show.

I'm so proud of her!!

Hair, Asiah / Makeup, Me

After we left the casting, we went to the movies and saw Pirates of the Caribbean; On Stranger Tides. It was really good. Not the best Pirates movie, but it was still good.

Then I came home and made a fruit salad with Watermelon, Strawberries, Kiwi, and Cherries. It's now in the fridge chillin'.

So I'm off to relax and think about what I will be wearing this week for work.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Until Tomorrow!

What to add to my shop??




UO Dress

I've had this dress for a long time. I loved the florals, the colors, and the material (it's 100% viscose). I decided to actually wear it today. After putting it on, I felt that it was a bit too short, but I wore it anyway. This dress may be added to my shop (still working on getting it up & running) because I don't think I'll wear it again.

Weekend Wrap up...

So...no movies this weekend. My weekend was more of a homey type of weekend. I did manage to get up and take Levi to his grooming appointment. He looked like a mutt, his hair was almost hitting the floor. Now he's handsome as ever!


I also went out on Saturday night with some of my friends and their friends. I had lots of fun...I just don't understand why females need to wear such little clothing when going out to a club/lounge.

Anyway, I did loads of things around the house today. Thanks to my Chi'town sister, Candice (Sing'ature Style). I made my own chalkboard. It's not as big as Candice's but I made a smaller one to put on the kitchen fridge. I used an old mirror we had laying around, chalkboard spray paint, and let it dry for 24 hours. It's perfect!



Here is my Saturday (Day) outfit:

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

This is Me Folks!

What a beautiful, hot Tuesday.

Someone asked me...a good friend...she didn't mean any harm; but she asked, "you're going to post this outfit? It's cute, I love it, but ...."

I stopped her there. I read other blogs, and sometimes even hear my daughter say that she isn't going to post an outfit because she/they didn't deem it  to be "special" or "worthy". Well...I think all of my outfits are special; I like them otherwise I wouldn't wear them. Sometimes I may feel too casual, but that doesn't mean I do not like my outfit. Besides, who am I "trying" to impress or be? This is me folks!
