Time. Time goes by so fast, it’s almost impossible to do everything we want to accomplish in one day. I may or may not have added too much on my plate, but I will let you know if I have.
The double breasted blazer is one of my favorite fashion must-haves of this season. It’s the most chic thing in my closet right now and comfy. My favorite thing about this outfit is that I did not have to try too hard to make this chic and effortless. Since it is still cold out, I decided to wear my leather pants and this beautiful velvet top. A accessoried with black heels and a bold red lip.

I’ve started my New Years with the intensity of a thousand knives! LOL ok, I was exaggerating but I have started my New Years resolution working pretty hard. I have been committed to my workouts and working on my eBay store. However, all the multitasking has had me slacking on my blog but I am committed to staying consistent.
The only item I gifted myself this Christmas, was this Michael Kors fanny pack. I know, these are like completely “outdated” BUT I have been searching for this bag for awhile. I finally found one that I liked and at a reasonable price. I’ll probably wear this for thrift shopping and/or running errands but I couldn’t help myself emulating Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. Of course, I emulated it my way because there is no way, I could wear a crop top and skirt like she did because my abs are not chiseled. Instead, I opted for this leather pencil skirt and this bubble sleeve sweater. The perfect fall-like weather winter outfit. The fanny pack and the red lip were the final item that made this outfit pop.

I’ve expressed my love for vintage sweaters here many times. However, this is THEE favorite vintage sweater. I bought this one back home a few years ago and I originally thought I was going to resell it but I lied. HEHEH ^__^. I fell in love with it so I was like, eh, why not. I’ve worn this sweater more than three times of course, but here are the three ways I featured it on the blog.
I have worn this sweater for work, for a cocktail party and on a casual Saturday afternoon. As you can see here, it was really easy to transition from look to the other by easily replacing a few items. You don’t have to have a huge closet or an endless amount of clothes in order to look fresh. It takes key pieces and reworking your look to make a simple item look “new” on a different day/outfit.

For a very quick moment, we experienced late spring weather here in Charlotte last week. I’m saying quick because the temperatures are forecasted to drop and apparently there’s going to be rain and snow this weekend. So there’s that (here goes to another weekend hibernating 😦) . Unfortunately, I didn’t realize how quick this weather was going to last because it started raining and we were unable to capture more than 4 good photos for this post.
For this very brief moment of spring like weather, I was actually able to wear this beautiful H&M skirt I thrifted the other day. There’s something about earth tone colors that is truly beautiful. I wanted this to be a nice winter/spring transition look (although I’m a few months early) and what better way than to pair a mustard midi skirt with a snake print top. Since the weather was that unforgiving I wore open toe shoes and I opted for these beautiful black and white mules, I thrifted BNWT! This entire outfit was thrifted ! Talk about Happy New Year. The purse was not thrifted but rather gifted to me for my 16th birthday from my mom.

Hey Everyone! The holidays were very hectic and I had so much going on that I didn’t feel inspired to post. That’s when I knew I had to take some me time off; but I’m back. I wish everyone a HAPPY New Year and I wish you all, health, wealth and plenty of positive vibes. Now that the New Year is in full swing. Did you make any resolutions this year? If so, what are they? Let me know in the comment section below. My motto for 2019 is Positive Vibes Only. I’m a pretty optimistic person but somewhere along the shuffle I started to feel very negative. I don’t know if it’s because of the people that I have been associating myself with or what, but I have felt like a Debby Downer. For this year, I have a few goals ( not resolutions) that I want to accomplish and in order to achieve these goals, my motto this year, is #PositiveVibesOnly. In starting my #positivevibesonly I dyed my hair black. I have been wanting to dye my hair this color for YEARS but I never went for it because everyone told me that it would look “bad”, “awful”, and that it would “wash me out.” Keeping in mind that my natural hair color is dark brown -___- . This year, I said to hell with it and I dyed it black. I LOVE the outcome ! When in doubt, follow your gut and if it really does look bad, color it again, lol.
The weather on New Years Eve was pretty terrible here. It was warm ( a first since I’ve lived here) gloomy and raining. A total downer BUT (#positivevibesonly) in some cultures rain is a sign of good luck, so I’m thinking it was the first sign of prosperity for 2019.
My hair inspired my New Years Eve outfit so I went full black, on black, on black. Wearing all black can be tricky as the color can wash out any details on your outfit if all the materials are the same. In order to avoid a total wash out, I paired this thrifted embellished vintage maxi skirt with this thrifted Ralph Lauren (BNWT) velvet side knot top. I accessorized with a pair of black suede ankle straps and a patent leather clutch. Unfortunately the gloomy weather made it difficult to photograph this outfit 😦 .
2019 New Years Goals
- Read at least 12 books this year.
- Lose the unnecessary pounds I’ve gained.
- Take dance classes with the husband.
- Start my online vintage resell store.
- Blog consistently.
