Moms be like: "Now when we get in this store, you betta not ask for nothing! We got snacks at home!"
The 'mean mom mug' pictured below is a universal glare felt by all children worldwide in the depths of their souls, before they enter the marketplace, grocery store, gas station, Wal-Mart, and any damn store.My grandmother gave this look to my mom, my mom gave it to me, and now (in the spirit of tradition) I give my daughter this same look.
"No, you can not have no damn candy.You just ate!"
Sooooo you remember when I said I was taking a break?
........I lied! lol
Guess who's back like they never left? (cuz they never left)
It's two days until Christmas.Guess how many gifts I have bought? Not one.I am not sorry one bit.
Confession time: I am a bit obsessed with Gucci this year.Can you tell? lol I have done countless posts (well about 4 or 5) inpired by their Spring 2016 line.The collection really speaks to me.It is bold, vibrant, vintage, modern, and some might call it border line granny-chic.The granny-chicness is what I like best about it.
Are you tired of me yet? No?! Good.I'm going to try to stay festive the rest of the year with fun holiday inspired looks.
Put yo' pinky rings up to the moon! You guys I was so feeling myself this weekend. Me and hubs were celebrating our 7 year anniversary and I finally had a reason to dress up! I mean I love him and he is my world, that's what I should be more excited about which I was...I just never really get to dress up. Do not judge me.
Long time no post huh? Well it's only been a week and I have good reason. Hurricane Matthew devasted much of eastern North Carolina.6 days with out lights , tremendous amount of flooding, and fallen trees left me almost immobile. Compared to my neighbors and family back home I didn't lose much , and for that I am thankful.
Yellow, it's me *insert roaring laughter. Fall is the most wonderful time of the year for one reason :jackets. I love them! Don't ask me how many I have (about 50 give or take ) . I am a woman obsessed; a trait I got honest from my mom. Thanks Mable lol
I too don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight, Sia. My money is already spent on my outfit *sly smirk.
Earlier this week I gave a bit of cold shoulder action , but I'm taking it a bit further and exposing all of them shoulders and clavicle bone! My amazing off the shoulder faux sleeve tie up blouse was a deal at only $17.99 from Romwe.com. I was so excited to get this blouse and my brain was buzzing with so many ways to wear it. I wanted to keep the color palette cool, so I paired my new fave blouse with these super cute faux suede olive flares from GoJane.com. I lucked up and got them for $4.95 and they had free shipping that day as well ( I'm such a bargain finder , right? *pats self on the back). I had originally only gotten them because they were so cheap and olive is such a great color, but when they arrived I wasn't sold on them. Inspired by Zara's black flare pants, I grabbed the scissors and cut a nice little triangle out of the front and they instantly became my new pair of summer sexy go-to pants.The hem of the pants call for a flat or short heel , so I pulled out my leather stacked heel sandals from Zara.They are from about 2 summers ago and this is the first time I am wearing them.They were another one of my 'got them because they were cheap' purchases.They were originally $119, but I snagged them for $19.99 at the wee end of Zara's semi annual sale.I live for a good deal as I am sure you may already know if you frequent my blog.
Speaking of deals, let me inform you of my new destination for discounted luxury goods. I was minding my business on Facebook, and an add pops up for therealreal.com.I clicked it and now I'm obsessed! They feature brand new and gently used authenticated designer brands like Gucci, Prada, Chanel, Givenchy, and Christian Louboutin, just to name a few at upwards of 80% off retail! My bamboo Gucci bullet bag (from the Tom Ford era of Gucci), which originally retailed for $1,400, was now about to be mine for $385 with 20% off. I gave no second thoughts and added it to my cart so fast and checked out in less than 2 minutes flat. If that is still steep for your budget, no worries they offer a finance plan where you can break down the price into monthly payments as well. Are you sold yet? Well if not, more for me.
