Valentine's Day approacheth, I hope everyone has been cuffed appropriately and on their best behavior (I sure haven't, but I'm married it doesn't matter).This week on the blog I am giving 3 looks any babe can pull off for date night.
.This look is for the vintage lovers.As it is too damn cold to have shoulders out, I threw a pink turtleneck under my Bordeaux hued jumpsuit and added a gold metal belt for accent. To me what makes this look stand out more than anything is 'vintage aspects'.This wig ( I know I know, I'm always talking about wigs...WIG IS LIFE) really pulled the whole thing together. You guys know how much my mom influenced my style (the red overcoat is , well was hers which was passed down to my sister and then to me) and I remember growing up my mom used to have this same hair style and I used to see it on all my fave timeless ladies like Diana Ross. The hoop earring gave the extra touch and foxy and my round-framed ombre sunnies in Burgundy just give LLLIIIFFEE!!!! My sunglasses are sold out but get a similar pair for $10.99 here
My jumpsuit is from Zara(so is my purse and top).I grabbed it during their semi-annual sale,sorry.Although mine is sold out I have added 5 other ruffled jumpsuits.The first one below (from Shein,$28-free shipping and $3 off your 1st order from their site) is highly rated with stellar reviews and is the closest thing to my jumpsuit.

Ok first off I know it's too long.I have to get it hemmed but I planned on wearing higher heels , but I forgot to bring them.Bring them where you ask? To the car dealership of course! Huh? Crazy story coming up...
Okay, my car service light came on Friday light came on and so there goes my Saturday (ugh!).I shoot 3 looks for the blog every week and I always shoot on Saturday and they are edited by hubs on Sunday.I planned on shooting locally for the weekend cuz A. I was muhfuh tide and B.I wanted to. The car dealership is about an hour away and my appointment was at 2.So here I am waking up early Saturday morning beating my face at the crack of dawn and stock piling wigs clothes and shoes in the car like its the apocalypse. I'm ill that I have to rush to Wilmington, NC and find locations to shoot and I got all this shit.They are gonna think I am crazy when I pull up with a bag of wigs.So fast forward I get there and they say its gonna take like over 2 hours! I'm bout to throw my wig on the damn floor by now.Then my husband gets the bright idea to shoot while we wait.HUH?! WHET?!
So here I am running in and out of the bathroom looking like a Joanne the scammer in real time , bag of clothes and wig in tow thinking of how to divorce my husband after I take these trashy pics."Hey, there is a Chili's right over there" he says. EFFEN CHILLI'S!!! He doesn't even know I have signed the divorce papers already in my head.By this time I'm so over it and him so I oblige. I'm tired, hungry, cold, my feet hurt and ready to tell him I leaving him for real. Yes, these pics were taken outside of Chili's yall. Surprisingly they aren't bad though.I also took some behind the building where they serviced my car and those are fab too.
After I ate and looked at all the pics, I make the decision to make this marriage (for now, V-day is coming up and I'm no fool. Be smart ladies lol).The point of my dramatic real life everyday messy me story is to say it doesn't matter where you are, but rather where your head is. I could have easily threw the towel (or wig) in and said 'nah bruh', but I sucked it up and made it work. That is how we must get through life at our lowest. So make the best of that Chili's parking lot and slay yo' life!
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
