LOOK *i'm wearing color* BOOK Wednesday


Urban Outfitters Top / Old Navy Pants / Aldo Shoes



So...I surprised myself today. This was a last minute outfit. I was running late this morning
and I pulled out what I thought may go together. I guess it worked.
It wasn't until I got to work, that people were like "you have on color today!"
Yep...I sure do!



Hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday!

Minimal...

Not sure why my eyes are shut. The girl had taken the pic probably while I wasn't ready.

I go on vacation starting this Friday, therefore much of what I do throughout this week involves preparation prior to my vacation. My blogging will be minimal. I have tons to do and not enough time to do it. Hope you will all understand.

While on vacation, I will try to post when I can within the next 2 weeks. I'll definitely be back on track by July 19th.

Anywho....hope you all had a happy Monday!

Weekend Wrap up...

The Vest

H&M Everything / Necklace mine

So my weekend was extremely busy. No movies, no going out...nothing fun. Instead I had to take my Levi to the groomers. Since the weather has been so hot, he was pretty miserable and that meant him having to get his hair shaved off.

Now he's comfortable!

I also cleaned the house. I even went to Home Depot to rent their carpet cleaner; it was awesome! Not hard to do and a lot less money than hiring carpet cleaners. I have 3 rooms which have carpet anyway....not worth hiring carpet cleaners.

I also, sort of, organized one of my closets, along with the extra closet I have. All of my closets are really small and that means I have to add what will fit. Everything else goes into a different closet in the house or the attic. My shoes are basically in the attic...some are in my closets.

 Bags...more in another bin in a different closet.

Extra closet below. I really needed to clean this one out because it was practically falling over.  

Really that's about it. Now I'm cooking and getting myself prepared for True Blood later on.

Hope you all had a fun weekend!

So, I'm working on my questionnaire for my very 1st personal styling consultation. I meet with the attorney next week. I will definitely keep you all posted. This seems so surreal to me!

LOOKBOOK Tuesday...and a thank you!

I'd like to thank all who had given such great advice regarding my previous post. I will take each comment and try to come up with something. As I've stated, this is a big opportunity and I will give it a try.

Now for my outfit of the day...

What an Opportunity!

As I stepped out of my car; walked towards the door of my local supermarket this morning, an older silver-haired woman was walking out the supermarket. When I heard, "excuse me!"

Conversation between me and this older woman:

Woman - "I've seen you come here on numerous mornings. You seem to never upset me with your style."
Me - (shocked) Thank you so much!
Woman - "How is it that you choose your everyday outfits?"
Me - I figure you shouldn't necessarily dress by age, but by how you feel, and also look the very best you can ...at whatever age you are.
Woman - "If you don't mind me asking, what is your line of work?"
Me - Commercial real estate
Woman - "I thought you would have been a personal stylist or something. Do you offer any styling consultations?"
Me - (wth?? seriously) Umm...no, but I'm totally flattered that you were thinking that.
Woman - "Here's my card. I have some friends, as well as myself, who could use a makeover. If you're interested in the job, please call me."
Me - (still shocked, waiting for Ashton Kutcher to come out) Thanks again. Let me think about it. This is something new. I've never been asked this before.
Woman - "Great! And I'm glad I'm the first to ask. Call me. We can negotiate a fair fee for your consultation services."

Ok, this was totally unexpected. Especially for a Monday morning. My Mondays are usually uneventful, depressing, and full of bad everything. So I glanced at this woman's card. She's an attorney for a law firm in Atlanta.

What an opportunity!!

You can imagine all of the thoughts going through my head. Was she serious? Am I capable of dressing a woman who is possibly 15 years my senior? I dress myself...I'm good at it. I've had years of experience doing so.

Besides this woman was impeccably dressed. She had on her Ann Taylor tailored skirt suit in black, her structured bag, and some beautiful animal print kitten heels. I'm more of a casual dresser. Even at work!

Not sure what to do. I can think of so many others who are definitely capable of doing this. The only other person I've helped dressed is my daughter. But I know what she likes. And she's a teen...sometimes their style is whatever goes.

I guess the only thing to do is call this woman up and ask her what she's looking for. What other questions should I ask? ...Help!

Weekend Wrap up...

I know I haven't been on as much as I'd like...I've been pretty busy though. I normally go through all of my blogroll and many others to look and leave a comment. Lately, my time has been a lot less. I'm also preparing for my vacation coming up...so what I've been doing is getting some things in order before my vaca. However, I think I will start looking at some of your sites before I go to bed.

And here are just some of pics from this weekend (actually beginning on Friday). You guys know that I believe in comfort and being casual. So, this weekend was nothing but me being me...casual chic!
Hope all of you had a gorgeous weekend!

After having no power last night, from the storm, & then losing cable, Internet & phone this morning...
I have no words. Now Flickr is having issues. I had to use Photobucket and I can't stand that photo tool. Pictures come out looking unclear.

Ok...on that note, I'm off to bed. Early I know.

orange
Yes, I have fallen victim of the citrus hues which are the trend for this Spring/Summer.


As some of you know, I really wasn't the person to put on color.
However, it's quite fun...and wearing color seems to put me in a better mood throughout the day.



It seems as though many have fallen victim to this color trend...

LOOKBOOK Tuesday

pleats
I love the fact that polyester material has the outstanding characteristic of resisting wrinkle
and springing right back to its crisp shape.

It's strong, it's resistant to stretching....and look how excellent the pleating is.

But it is definitely not made to be worn in 90 degree temps...period!
