L.O.V.E

Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

CASINO ROYALE

 
I went to my company’s casino themed holiday party last month and multiple people told me I was dressed perfect for the theme. That wasn’t really the plan. I literally pulled out the dressiest most covered look I could find because it was about 30 degrees that night and I left my coat on because again, it was about 30 degrees. However, instead of bursting everyone’s bubble and telling them the real reason I choose this look (warmth), I just played along and said, “Thank you! So glad you noticed my efforts”. Ha! Happy white lie Monday!

TARTAN TOO LATE?

 

So when in the season is it too late to wear tartan pants? I originally intended on wearing these beauties to Midnight Mass on Christmas, but it was far too cold to have my ankles exposed. I still have yet to wear them anywhere, and now I'm wondering did I miss the boat until next holiday? Let me know what you think please and thank you.

TREAT YO SELF: LOUBOUTIN

 I don't know about you but being that I am single with no kids, I spoil myself during the holidays, because if I don't who will? Plus the sales are so good...
My biggest treat to myself this past Christmas were these shoes followed by several cocktail dresses including this one from Bloomingdales. 
 
I was originally supposed to be responsible and spend that money on a new laptop, but BOOOOOOOOOO. Laptops are no fun. I'll wait until mine dies completely and enjoy my shoes and all my dresses in the meantime. 
PS Isn't this dress so much better going than it is coming? Love the back!

SEQUINS & SAUCONY

Question: What do you wear when you're going to a kickback a.k.a house gathering  for NYE but you still want to sparkle?
Answer: Sequins & sneakers topped off with some fur! 

I threw this outfit together in between making COLLARD GREEN DIP & calling my uber and I kind of love it! The fur was a last minute "it's cold outside and I don't want to bring a coat" decision, and I think it was the right decision.

Happy 2017!!!!!!!

HOLIDATE

I decided to end the year with a post featuring the look that was by far the instaFAVE in 2016. As I stated in THIS POST, I was on the fence about this dress. I think it’s gorgeous but something about it felt too youthful and too old lady at the same time. But my instaFRIENDS convinced me to get it and I am glad I did. I didn’t think it was quite right for the holiday party I had in mind for it, however I think it’s perfect for a romantic holiDATE night or maybe I will save it for Valentine’s Day! 

I hope the holidays have been kind to you thus far and I'll see you in the New Year!

CRANBERRY

 
 

 I am a little late with my holiday style series this year but I kicked off my real life holiday style last month in my favorite metallic bow pumps and long furry vest. This year I paired these two with skinny cranberry pants for a gospel concert and performance starring Yolanda Adams. It was the perfect outfit for the perfect event to get me in the spirit. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah & Happy Kwanzaa to you and yours!

W I D E

So I'm in the market for some super flare or bell bottoms jeans. I'm not sure what they are calling them these days, but they look something like THESE.



Unfortunately every pair I've tried on have been A) too expensive for something so trendy and/or B) too long and I don't know about altering something like that. If anyone knows where I can get some flare bell bottoms please let me know. In the meantime, I have put my wide leg trouser jeans back in rotation and paired it with everything from striped shirts to oversized sweaters.
