Color Me Bad! April 16, 2012

Hey y’all, hey!  Just a quick OOTD post.  I am really feeling all of the color this season and I have added SO much color to my wardrobe in recent months (really the past year).  Today,  I did some color blocking.  A trend that I love, but would have been afraid to try a few years ago.

I got two fabulous pencil skirts at Target a few weeks ago, on clearance.  I just hung them on the back of my bedroom door, thinking about how I wanted to wear them.  Sometimes, my procastination/laziness/haste to get to work prompts an outfit that just seems to work out (at least in my opinion) and today was one of those days.  I grabbed the skirt off of my door and the top out of my closet.  I was gonna wear leopard print pumps, but I spotted my blue shoes that I hadn’t worn in a long time and threw them on.

This outfit was comfortable and I felt very grown up and sexy;  I got a lot of compliments on it today.

Not the best lighting, but it was so windy outside I dare not try to take pictures outside.

The pictures above don’t do justice to my blue shoes (and I don’t know why they are so blurry), but you can see the shoes below and here.

My blue suede shoes!

What do you all think?  Are you into color this season as much as I am?  I am planning to really go BRIGHT as the weather gets warmer.

Well, time for me to do some homework and I think I may wear my blue shoes tomorrow.  I’ll ponder it some more and talk to y’all later.  XOXOXOXO


Colored Girl! June 19, 2011

Happy Father’s Day, y’all!  This is a quickie. I am super tired, because I have had a busy weekend. I worked my part-time retail job yesterday, attended a fashion show, went to praise & worship rehearsal, attended Sunday Service, and worked my part-time job again today.  It was one of the weekends that they relaxed some of the uniform rules and I decided to wear color.  I may have gone overboard, but I have really fallen in love with the color block trend.  Deciding months ago to start adding more color to my wardrobe, I have slowly but surely added alot of bright pieces to my closet. 

So today, I wore something simple and comfy. 

Purple Tee-Dots, Coral Midi Skirt-Talbot's, Orange flip-flops-Coach, Sunglasses (forgot they were on my head)-Versace @ Macy's

I was going to wear a yellow tee with the skirt, but went with purple because I really like the idea of purple and red together.  It is just so………………..different (at least to me).
Tell me what you think, people.

Me love color long time! April 15, 2011

Hey y’all! It has been so long since I did a post!  I am excited about spring/summer and have just been enjoying the warmer temps.  Anywhoo, I have mentioned in previous posts, that I want to add more color to my wardrobe.  I tend to stick to black and black is my favcrite color, but I was really intrigued by the pops of color I was seeing all over the place.  I decided to pick up colorful pieces, where I could, and try out a different look.

Coral Top-Dots, Grey Jeggings-Levi's@Macy's, Blue Suede Pumps-Steve Madden@Macy's

Now the outfit above, is one I wore to work on yesterday.   

The shoes got a little dusty when I walked thru the staff parking lot, but they are still super cute and I got a lot of compliments on them.

I got the shoes about a month ago, while shopping with a friend at Macy’s.  I saw them on another young lady in the shoe dept. and begged her to buy those shoes for herself, because they were gorgeous on her.  I thought about it and said to myself, “Step out of the box and see if they have the shoes in your size!”  You see the result.  The coral top, similar story. Standing in line at Dots, the woman in front of me had the top in her hand and I asked her if it was plus size (she was kind of in-between. She could go XL or 1X *shrug*).  She said, “Yes” and pointed me to the back of the store where they were hanging.  I grabbed my cute wedges I was picking up (the one and only 11 in the store) and hustled to the back to find my size.  The rest is history.

So……….this is my attempt at A) adding color to my life and B) doing a color block thing.  I have to say, I am really loving wearing color,  doing some new things with my wardrobe, and stepping outside of my black box.  Tell me what you think, people.


Once you go Black………… November 18, 2010

*big sigh* I really thought I was looking cute when I wore this outfit the other day (*giggle* I did look cute), but looking at the photos below,  I had an epiphany.  I need to add some more color to my wardrobe.

Black is my favorite color and a requirement for my part-time retail job (at the retailer that must not be named).  I back off of it in summer months and wear all white.   However, my fall/winter wardrobe is 90% black.  In the next few weeks, I am going to make a concerted effort to add some color to my closet.  What’s your favorite color?

My all black, as usual. LOL! Jacket-Ralph Lauren, Pants-Gap Premium Collection, Turtleneck-Lane Bryant, Shoes-Nine West, Chandelier Earrings-ForLove21


I love these shoes!!!
