Lip-licious Monday

 Hi Fashionistas! How was your weekend? Fashionating I hope. 

Do you remember this trend that started in 2012, maybe even as early as 2011? I was so anti-bejeweled and dual lip colors that I didn't even give it a second thought. Now, two (maybe three) years later I'm revisiting this trend because apparently it's still a thing. It wasn't a fad after all. I now wonder, where would you be able to pull this off at. Work? School? The club? definitely the club. Someone once told me - while out shopping new trends at the mall - "don't knock it until you try it". Now thinking back, her advice makes a lot of sense. I should be more open to new fashion trends, whether I think it looks crazy, weird or stupid. So, in that vain, here I am embracing the dual lip color trend, in my own subtle way. 

 Color: top & bottom - "ruby opera"
(I had to start off in my comfort zone)

 Color: top - "blushing harmony"
bottom - "ruby opera"

Color: top - "coral encore"
bottom - "ruby opera"

What do you think of the dual lip color trend? Where would you wear this look?

Farewell to Summer...Welcome back Fall

Hello Guys & Dolls! What a summer!? I'm the first to admit, I've been MIA for some months now and not because I wanted to, but this has been the busiest summer ever.  And now that it's almost over, I can breath a sigh of relief and get back to blogging :-)
What did you guys do this Summer?

Breakfast at Tiffany's with Chuck-Chucks

Hello Fashionistas! It's been a long time - too long actually - that I've been social. Honestly, a lot has been going on these last few months, personally and professionally, and to celebrate our new beginnings, the hubby and I celebrated this past week by going on a much needed vacation :) First, it was off to London where we visited my sister and niece. It was so good to visit with each other, even if it was for a short time. We walked around all day, my sister the tour guide extraordinaire, took us everywhere, i.e. Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, to name a few. My niece and I were so tired at the end of the day, we joked that we were the loosing team on "Survivor". My back ached, my feet hurt, but I wouldn't change anything for the memories we created that we will forever cherish.

On this much needed vacation, I took with me my chuck-chucks bracelet, with charms personally selected by yours truly, to brighten up each day. I wore this bracelet every single day, with each outfit, whether it went with my color scheme or not.

We went to New York - completely not planned - but we had the best time ever.

I just love flowers! I could take pictures of flowers all day :)


Jacket: Joit
Top: Serin@ Canciglia
Skirt: Gap
Boots: Canon River Blues
Bracelet: Thanks to Chuck-Chucks!

Hope you enjoyed Easter and now looking forward to Mother's Day. Leave me a comment below and let me know where you've visited lately.

Thank you for reading!

This past weekend was so great! I celebrated another year, another milestone and new beginnings. February, the month of my birth, has so much to celebrate. There is Valentine's day for the romantics. Black history month, to pay tribute and remember the ones that paved the way for us. Presidents' day to honor the past leaders of this great nation or another day to be off work =) I celebrated all of the above and more; I was truly blessed to have my husband home with me (in fact, he took these pics for me). 

When I was contacted by Chuck-Chucks, I immediately went to there website to check out the goods. What I saw was unique. They offer interchangeable jewelry charm attachments for a leather bracelet of your choice. These bracelets (earrings and necklaces coming soon) allows you to express your individuality. The style combinations are endless. Currently, there are 12 different colored leather bracelets to choose from and hundreds of charms.

Superbowl Attire (II)

Superbowl Attire (II)

Hi Guys and Dolls! It's almost Superbowl Sunday, yeah! :-) Last year when I blogged about what to wear for Superbowl Sunday - (View Here) - I got a couple of emails requesting that I do a fashion blog on what to wear several days in advance. Which makes sense, I mean I did blog the day of which doesn't leave anyone enough time to purchase anything I suggested you wear. So, with that in mind, I put together the different options above with four days to spare. Please feel free to like/dislike, add your own suggestions and if you already know what you will be wearing, do share with all of us. Are you looking forward to the Bruno Mars performance?

Happy "humpday"! Friday is near.

Oh, I almost forgot; the winner of the SAMMYdress giveaway is Ash of AeroplaneandApparel. Congrats Ash!
