In the beginning, God created………..FASHION!

DEO VOLENTE ALBUM *God willing list* November 12, 2010

Many bloggers, especially fashion and lifestyle bloggers, have their top 10 lists, top 5 lists, favorite things list, or a to-do list. Who am I to thumb my nose at tradition?  So, today I am debuting my weekly (bi-weekly, monthly, as the mood strikes me) list of things I adore.  The Deo Volente Album (Latin-Deo=God, Volente=willing, Album=list), is a list of fashion and beauty items, I have come across and am hoping to acquire.

I get a lot of catalogs, magazines, department store sales circulars, and email alerts, so my eyegate is bombarded with new and dazzling items to purchase on a daily basis.

Some things, I look at and say, “Love it, but unless my parents win the lottery (*pious look* I don’t play the evil lottery) and break me off a huge chunk of money, I won’t be getting this anytime soon.”  Somethings, I look at and say “Cute, but I ain’t pressed.”  Other things I see *cue the angelic harps and the bright, shining light from above*, I look heavenward and say, “God willing, I will get this within the next three paychecks.”

I pray the item does not sell out, I pray I get a coupon or discount code, I pray for a super-sale,  and/or I pray that the utility company will discover I have overpaid for several years and send me a rebate check (hasn’t happened yet, but………you never know).

Here we go.


#1  The Isabelle Beaded Blouse from Alloy.  I love this blouse, and if and when I get it, I will wear the stank out of it!


ALLOY Blouse

#2  I love Gap Premium Collection pants.  I have two pairs in black; the Modern Boot and the Perfect Trouser.  The Perfect Trouser is my fave of the two and I have decided I must have a pair in grey.

#3  The ALDO Donilan wedge.  I need a pair of brown wedges to wear with some of the boot cut jeans I have in my closet.  Wedges give me the height and the stability I need as a big, tall girl.

#4  The ALDO Curly wedge.  I have decided I can wear this shoe in the winter with opaque tights and skirts, leggings, jeggings, jeans, or pants.  I just adore this shoe.  There, I said it!  I adore it!

#5  Last, but not least, the Mica Shoulder Pad Blazer from Simply Be.  This should really be at the top of the list, because it sold out once before and I was ……….well, let’s just say I was disappointed.  I don’t care what anybody thinks, I love shoulder pads.  These are a little exaggerated, but I could see this jacket with my ASOS Tutu skirt or some black jean jeggings.

Ok people, tell me what you think.

    Hi cuz! I love the blouse it’s sooo very lady like and flirty,I also like the(I’m going to call them trousers) I’m not very much into shoes at all ,but I do like wedge heeled shoes. I absolutely love the blazer Ithink that it would look good on on me,because I’m round shouldered and the padding would help that . looking forward to the next fashion statement.

    Okay Tracey, all of your pick shoes look like something from a
    frankenstein movie. I HATE, maybe that is a little strong, I mean I
    strongly dislike them. And Tracey, shoulder pads?…really? Come on back
    with your really cool earth clothes. We love you.
    Your fan, your mom
