I ALWAYS POST MY OUTFITS A DAY OR TWO LATER THAN WHEN THEY WERE TAKEN. I'M NOT SURE IF THAT'S "CHEATING" IN THE BLOG-O-SPHERE, BUT THIS IS WHAT I WORE ON MY HUBBY'S BIRTHDAY (The day before Valentine's day).
We ate 2 famotidine's worth of Riblets and a giant New York style cheese cake!
TODAY WE ARE BURIED UNDER ANOTHER FOOT OF SNOW. I'M NOT COMPLAINING, BUT MY WARDROBE PICKINGS ARE GETTING SAD! I'M LOOKING FOREWARD TO BURNING A FEW THERMAL HOODIES AND THERMAL LEGWEAR! LUCKILY LONG BOHO SKIRTS COVER ALOT!!! And thanks to the creator of heavy cotton tights!
My hidden birthday Secret!
Over -the-knee sox!
(Note to self : Dark Green nail polish scares little kids!)
I normally wouldn't wear this shawl during Winter, but my favorite fashionista's have taught me to wear whatever I feel great in, and the lines of what's "appropriate" don't apply anymore!
A side braid is handy for hat days!
I had a chin-length bob back in March . Everyone said it made me look younger, but as a gal with long, thin hair from birth, i let it grow out. There's so many more choices and I can whip it into a bun without even looking. Luckily, my hair grows fast ! Maybe, I'll try a Shag this summer!
I bought this Boho style skirt in the little girl's dept. at Sears for under $4.00.
I plucked the shiny plastic disks off each flower, and cut the skirt in the process.
Me + Scissors = Bad.
( I ran with them later )
MY LESSON OF THE WEEK :
Since my legs are long and my Top is heavy, fuller skirts balance out my body, giving the appearance of a long, lean torso. Belting at the true waist makes me look out-of-balance.
Thanks Stacey and Quinton !
( from What not to Wear)
I also wore one of my favorite pair of earrings from Target.
The brand is called Atract. or @tract. They make the most cool and unusual pieces.
It's a bit costly for my bugety mind , so I try to catch them on clearance.
See the Meanie Greenies ?
I am gonna try a shade closer to turquoise or Seafoam.
Chanel has the perfect shade , but for $23 dollars, I can do alot of thrifting ; )
Here's a cool DIY project idea to work on during the Blizzard time!
I saw this necklace at Newport News ( my newest fav. for reasonably priced , yet Stylish pieces - and they clx. quickly , and offer free shipping alot ! )
I'm gonna use a thin ribbon and put some big beads and scrunch some thick ribbons in between.
Stay tuned, as my DIY's can easily become DIYDammits!!!
