High-waisted denim

SONY DSC

I have a thing for high-waisted jeans. I love them and I think I might love them a bit too much. I swear I have them in every color and shade possible( ok, maybe a bit exaggerated). I like that fact that they can be flattering and of course they hide my tummy so that is a plus. I was feeling a bit adventurous the other day and decided to take the the plunge and wear a crop top with it. I swear I don’t know why I was feeling confident but I did it. I report and say, it wasn’t too scary or too bad. The hat, if ya’ll can recall I posted it a few months ago on my Monday’s cravings segment ( which I promise to start rolling out again). I bought the hat for $9.99 at Urban Outfitters for their Black Friday savings, the hat was originally $39.00 and I am glad I only paid $9.99. While the hat is cute, I don’t think it is actually worth the extra $30.00 – to me, and this is my personal opinion – it is too “costume-y”. With this being said, I like it but if I was looking for something more durable and I would definitely not consider this one.

Oh, yes, my dog again.

Crop Tops & Pencil Skirts

SONY DSC

Pencil Skirts. They can be sexy, feminine, trendy, & chic all at the same time. I bought this pencil skirt at the Gap last summer (14′) for  $9.97 on Clearance. I still can’t believe that I am just getting around to wearing it. I love the distress look of the skirt and this was probably why I was sold on it ( besides the fact that it fits very nice 🙂 ). Anyway, I decided to wear it with this “vintage” French Connection crop-top I bought at Goodwill. I say vintage because believe it or not, this top is from the nineties; this why they say that fashion is recyclable. I kept it chic by wearing my lace up heels – hello x-mas present. I have a feeling that I will be wearing these shoes all year long!

P.S. – I got a new Hair Cut >.<

The Velvet Little Black Dress – Crushing over it.

SONY DSC

Hope your year is going great. So far, I lucked out on this gorgeous black velvet dress that I paid a whopping $2.50!! Yes, I know. I so love this dress because I secretly love velvet. I know that you must be careful with velvet because it is such a thick fabric. If you do not wear it correctly you risk looking heavier than you really are. There are a million ways that I want to wear this dress.

Outfit Details

I was going bar hoping with my family so I decided to keep it simple this time but I already have in mind a few other ways I plan on wearing it. I wore my gorgeous “velvet” like snake print heels because the fabric on the shoes looked really nice with the dress combined. I wasn’t going to wear a necklace but my boyfriend insisted that I wear one because it looked “too simple”      ( little did he know that is what I wanted ). Since I take his input into consideration I wore this gold and black necklace and I wrapped my long chain around my hand to make it look like a necklace and ring together. I kept simple by wearing my favorite clutch/purse and a hot pink lip.

Outfit Total: $30.00

  • Dress: $2.50
  • Shoes: $25.00 (On Sale)
  • Clutch: $2.50

HAPPY NEW YEAR – #ootd


SONY DSC

Happy New Year!

I hope you all received the New Year with lots of happiness, joy and delight! I would also like to wish you all lots of health, wealth, travel, excitement, joy and happiness this new year. This year I opted out of sparkles and instead carried on my black and gold obsession to my New Years Eve outfit.

The outfit

I wore this chic romper/bodysuit to with lots of gold detailing.I bought the bodysuit during black Friday at H&M for $10! Best investment last year 😉 . I decided that I wanted to keep my outfit non-sparkly since I knew everyone usually wears lots of glitter on this day. I kept it punk-rock cool with my shades during the day and a hot red lip stick. My only complaint about this suit is that it is extremely looooong – so for someone who stands at my height ( 5’4″ ), you will need to have this tailored or wear really high-high shoes. I wore a pair of 6″ Steve Madden heels but that didn’t make the cut. I am going to have this taking in at the hem because sadly these are way to long for me.

I hope you all had lots of fun welcoming in the year.

P.S. I definitely need to upgrade my camera this year – one of my new years resolution.

Happy Fashion.
