It’s thanksgiving in America today! That means, lot of eating and lots of shopping. This year, I am opting out of Black Friday sales. I feel that there are so many things that I already have that I really don’t need to be out there shopping. Instead, I am going to stay home and lounge around all day; watch movies and sip on wine.
Today I kept things simple as I was the one in charge of cooking again so I made sure it was a low maintenance outfit. Now, I know most of you might be wondering, “that’s simple?” But it really is. All I did was throw on some black legging jeans, a black long sleeve shirt and black boots. To make the outfit extraordinary? I just threw on this amazing faux-fur leopard vest I found at Goodwill the other day ( seen here). Just by throwing on this vest, I made my outfit pop; it went from simple to wow. I accessorized with this amazing clutch I found at goodwill the other day ( which is sooooo pretty), a gold necklace, a gold rings, a watch and a bold dark lip. Hope you liked it.
Oh by the way, when I stepped out of the bedroom my boyfriend played: Thrift Shop by Macklemore and Ryan. LOL He said, “you look like Macklemore with that”.

Happy Fashion and Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Wednesday and I hope ( for those of you that celebrate Thanksgiving) you have already finished your Thanksgiving Shopping. Today’s blog post is dedicated to this beautiful oxblood dress I bought about a year ago at Loehmans. I got an excellent deal on it since the store was closing. I wanted to add to the edginess of the dress so I added my leopard heels, although, I seriously need to stop wearing these ( but I can’t!). I added a nice matching lip and a beautiful fur coat that I thrifted not too long ago.

Hi Loves and Happy Tuesday!
I love a nice pair of pleated pants, especially if they’re nice and fitted at the leg yet versatile enough to make it work for the that 9-5 or for a casual day. I paired the pants with a beautiful crop top I purchased about a year ago and quite frankly, I need to get this shirt taken in a bit. Now, I added this hot pink coat ( which also needs to be taken in ever so slightly ;( ) to show you that this outfit can be worn on chillier days with a nice coat. Please note, I was HOT AS HELL! It is 82 degrees out there today, I was melting! I only took pictures with the coat, there is no way I was wearing that, ha ha ha ha ha. I decided to make it this outfit a bit more glamours by accessorizing it with that bold bracelet and shoes; I gave it a contrast with the clutch,

So, today was a HOT one in South Florida. Yeah, yeah, yeah…I know, I know. I live in Miami, it should be hot. However, we hit a record heat low for this month. It was a whopping 88 degrees in Miami today and although we are known for reaching the lower 80’s all the time, this isn’t the case for this time of year.
Therefore, I brought it back to this cool “silk” like dress. It is the perfect dress for those hot days and you just want to cool it. I kept it clean and cool with these cute heels from Steve Madden and that gorgeous gold bag from Steve Madden as well.

Those lazy weekends when you want to conquer the world but don’t have the energy to do so. Yup, that’s the currently feeling. A slight headache coming in and a bit drowsy….hope this doesn’t mean I’m getting sick.
This is my Saturday #ootd. I think the outfit was very much inspired by the day; it’s dark and gloomy outside. I kept everything within the black/light gray/dark gray/white color scheme. A very relaxed and comfy outfit indeed, absolutely no makeup ( ok maybe lip gloss) my cap to hide the mess that my hair currently is, stretchy track pants and the comfiest of comfiest tank and jacket. I bought this tweed like bomber jack at the Gap Outlet a few weeks ago and I can’t stop wearing it. My favorite thing about this look though? The bag of course! This is that perfect bag when you just want to carry your credit card, a lip gloss, ID and some cash. The best part that you can wear this either up or down and it will still look great!

Ok, so I think that lately i have been slightly obsessed with animal print. Not sure why, but i have been in the mood to wear EVERYTHING animal print ha ha ha. I think it might my inner animal instinct.
The top is a gorgeous vest I found at goodwill and decided to pair it with this pencil skirt because the top is subtle yet it adds an element of surprise to the whole outfit. I know, less is more but this just looks smoking together! I’ve added a picture below of the vest so that you can see the details better. I can’t wait to pair the vest with a pair of olive green pants and perhaps a pair of nude pumps, to give it that military flare?! The skirt you might recognize from the Target and Altuzarra collection and it is as pretty as it is in the pictures. I just the slit on the skirt; however; let’s not talk about my much needed tan! And I live in Florida! lol.

It was actually a chilly day in South Florida today. Ok, so we’ve had a few chilly days here and there but I wore a sweater today so it counts!LOL.
I can’t gush enough about this gorgeous sweater I bought at Goodwill the other day. It’s sooooo pretty and the color is just amazing! I decided to pair the sweater with these very chic faux-suede/cord legging jeans from the gap that I also happened to have bought at Goodwill (actually, come to think of it, the whole outfit was thrifted with the exception of the bag). The shoes were featured on thrifted rags a few weeks ago, check here. I just love the combination of mustard yellow with oxblood/burgundy. I wish you could see the color better but unfortunately I am still having camera issues.

The element of surprise this fall season was definitely pastels. Pastels are better known to be the epitome color of spring; however, many designers such as Miu Miu, Just Cavalli, Nina Ricci, Gucci and many others, had different hues of pastel making a splash here and there on their runway shows. Of course, I had to take a stab at it and so here it is!

Pretty in Pastel
Wynwood Street Art. Side note: The headlights reflect on my shirt; too fxking cool!
Happy Saturday loves!
If you are ever in Miami, FL (not South Beach, because those are actually two different cities) you have to make sure to make a pit stop in Wynwood a.k.a Design District and check out the sick art there. There is soooo many cool art around the neighborhood that you might just want to take a picture of it. However, make sure you do so soon. Unfortunately, because of the heavy construction, commercialization and retailers that have opened in the area, several of the art galleries in the neighborhood are moving :(. Hopefully the street art remains but that is still to be determined.
The Outfit Details:
It was a tank-top and jeans kinda day for me. I did have an early start so I pulled out the jacket but honestly by the afternoon it was a warm 84 degrees. However, by the evening it’s set to be “cool” so I’ll keep the jacket with me, just in case I need it. I added the shoes for a an extra “kick in my step” and because I practically use any excuse to wear leopard. However, this is one of those outfits that you can pretty much wear just about any pair of shoes and the outfit will still look good.
Total Cost of this Outfit $94
- Top $4
- Jeans $4

Target Midi Dress
Today I bring you the midi dress I got at Target for $17.99 on clearance! Yes, ladies and gentlmen off the rack ( if we can say this considering target’s clothes are already cheap). I have to admit though, I did buy the dress about a size too big but it was the last one and I just couldn’t help myself; besides, it doesn’t fit too big so I’ll have it taken in. This is a very comfortable dress and I am surprised I did not see it before; either way, I am glad I didn’t because I got it for a very small amount. I also splurged on another few items while at Target. I was able to find the python pencil skirt from the Altuzarra collection for $10.58 and the sheer bow tie top for $8.99 ( score)!
Fall Colors paired nicely with florals.
I had been on the hunt for the perfect Midi dress and this one fit the bill. I love the material of the dress, it’s not “bandage” where it hugs every nook and cranny that you want to hide, it actually hugs your curves and hides the “love handles” lol. The print is the second reason why I wanted this dress. I love a good floral print and I love it even more if I can wear the print and/or piece year round. I accessorized with a pair of oxblood shoes because I wanted that color to stand out from the floral print and paired it with a nice blush bag. I kept the jewelry to a minimum because you don’t really much when the dress is this gorgeous.
