Happy New Year! #PositiveVibesOnly

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.

Outfit Details

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.

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.
