The last two weeks were a little rough but I am glad to finally be back blogging. I want to start featuring other things on the blog besides my outfit posts and I will slowly try to introduce that into the blog. It’s pretty tough to try to get things done when you have a full-time job but I am going to try to get better at my time management skills.
I had originally planned on only wearing this waffle turtleneck and leggings but I felt like this outfit needed one more thing to make it pop.I decided to throw on this faux-fur leopard vest and my Valentino-esque shoes. I purchased this faux-fur vest at Goodwill for a measly $2.50 and while it doesn’t have a brand tag on it, I can tell you it’s a pretty good quality piece. The shoes are actually some of my favorite pair of shoes ( I have these in three colors) they are definitely not the Valentino Rockstud they’re BCBGs interpretation of the Valentinos. While they might not be the real thing, they are comfortable and are probably one of the best replicas I’ve seen out there.

Hanging around the city this weekend, I came across this: Straight Outta Miami. Of course, I had too. This is a simple relaxed fall look ( or any season really). I bought this skirt at my local Goodwill and it was totally worth it.

So for my next few posts, I figure I go around this wonderful city taking photos of all the amazing graffiti around. For this week, I happen to be matching with this “mean mugging lady” so I thought, why not copy her mean mugging look. I say, I nailed my mean face.
This dress actually happens to be one of my favorite thrift finds. I must say, the fit, the cut and the price ($3.00) were all too wonderful to pass up. I’ve worn this dress before with different shoes and a blazer BUT I did wear the same clutch. Aside from the fact that I love the fit of this dress, I like the fact that it is definitely a transitional piece. I can wear this dress for all seasons because the colors scream: Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter.
Dress: Maeve // Purchased @ Goodwill
My birthday was officially yesterday (04.07, Happy birthday to me!) and I have already begun my birthday celebration with a bright yellow dress. I say birthday month because I celebrate all 30 days of April. I know, I’m spoiled like that lol.
I wore this dress on couples night and I must say I was the brightest person in the restaurant, literally. This is the perfect dress for spring and for those hot spring/summer nights. I added these very cute BCBG pumps ( Valentino lookalikes) in white and my very chic snake print clutch.
Clutch: Zara (Thrifted Item, purchased at Goodwill)
Shoes: BCBG Paris Darron Pump – BCBGMAXAZRIA
I am finally back in town and on my computer! Yay! Life without the internet is hard people!!! Ok, I’m done with the exclamation points. I am happy that I am back in the comfort of my home but sadly I am not 100% settled in. I have to unpack ( I did some serious shopping at the Outlet Malls) and do some serious catching up on school work. Today’s outfit is simple and to the point. I wore denim on denim today and added a bit of chic by wearing gold accents ( shoes, watch etc…).What I love about this outfit is that it is simple and chic – this is definitely one of those laid back easy going outfits.
Coat: American Apparel ( Purchased at Goodwill )
Just a very quick post as I am super busy today!
I am wearing these shoes again because they are extremely comfortable. I might just have to buy myself a second pair in case I damaged these ^.^ I am currently running around from one place to the next as I am cooking Christmas Eve dinner tomorrow and I am trying to make sure I cover all the last minute details. My family celebrates Christmas Eve; so we have a huge dinner and wait up till midnight to open presents. While we wait though, we are either reminiscing of the past, dancing, telling jokes or simply just bonding with the family. So without further or due….
The Outfit Details:
I am wearing this cute and comfortable shirt from Ann Taylor I bought at Goodwill! I am in love with the color blush. It is one of those colors that really is just beautiful. I decide to wear a skirt today because it is warm in Miami today. I bought this skirt at the Gap a few months ago and I it was love at first sight. I love the “mesh” material at the bottom – it gives the skirt just a chic look. Of course, as I already mentioned I couldn’t help myself from wearing these shoes again. To keep it really chic, I topped my outfit with my go to purse. Hope ya’ll like.

Winter is officially here! While I know that most of you have already been covered in snow, you are probably reading this and saying, “Is she serious?!” But, serious I am being in deed. The first day of Winter was yesterday and I must say that for us South Floridians the weather was actually warm compared to the last few days ( it’s been “nippy” and/or chilly here). Many of you might and might not know that it doesn’t really get cold here in Miami or South Florida for that matter. Our winters are EXTREMELY mild and some might even say we don’t get winter at all, which in all honesty is very true. The draw back about having to live somewhere warm is that you do not get to see snow ( ever ) and if you’re into fashion, you’ll never be able to bundle up and look fabulous. I promise though, I am not complaining. I have seen snow – don’t care for it and I can only handle so much cold; 50 degrees to be exact. So, with this being said, my fashion looks for winter will most likely be different than most bloggers and at times, you might think it’s summer/spring wear instead of winter wear ( gotta work with what I have). However, I am going to make it my mission to provide you with as many as “winter fashion” looks as possible.
Ok, the shoes are part of my Christmas present and as I mentioned in my previous post, I DO NOT do gift wrapping. Instead, as soon as the FedEx guy left, I ripped the bag open and wore my shoes immediately ( talk about being impatient!). During the day, I rocked the shoes with a pair of jeans, a black top, a black blazer and my blush colored bag. Since I was going to be out all day, I wanted an outfit that I could easily transition for an early Christmas dinner. The dinner was very casual and laid back, so I knew I could get away with this look. The only think I swapped out was my purse for the black clutch. The shoes were the talk of the evening I must add. They are absolutely gorgeous!!! I fell in love with them as soon as I saw them. I had been craving for the Valentino’s original version ( see here ) for a while now but I can’t fork out $1000 for a pair. These however, fit the bill perfectly – they looked like the Valentino’s without the Valentino price tag.

This was my Friday OOTD. Which most of the outfit was purchased at Goodwill.
I decided to wear this beautiful skirt from H&M that I found at Goodwill a while back. The skirt was still brand new with the tags. I paid $8.00 for the skirt, score! The shirt is also a Goodwill find, it’s a DKNY shirt and I paid $3.00 🙂 Lucky girl, I know. The clutch was also a Goodwill find and I paid about $3 for it as well.
It was a hot summer day again in Miami so this outfit was more than fitting.
I absolutely love this outfit, it was chic, simple and sweet. I have to admit though, the bangs made it look retro which was another cool factor to this outfit.
