The Little White Dress for Ladies Who Don’t Wear White | Video

 I have to start by saying that anyone who knows me knows that I am not a woman who normally wears white or light colors in general, and while I am branching out, in my mind, the only color that is better than black is blacker. It’s my uniform, my default, it is how I stay stylish and halfway pulled together on any given day. Topshop Off the Shoulder Lace Babydoll Dress, Tory Burch Miller Sandals in Patent, Gucci Linea Embossed Leather Camera Bag,   Gucci Sunglasses So when I…

Easy Travel Style; What I Wore On Vacation

Last month I spent a glorious 4 days at the Sandals Royal Bahamian in Nassau, Bahamas and 3 days in Miami Beach. I was in the Bahamas for the first time ever, to attend a destination wedding and then we tacked on the last three days in Miami to celebrate The Dude’s (my hubby’s) birthday. In between wedding festivities and birthday fun, I had a chance to soak up the sun, play in the water, and attempt to slay every single day.       While I was in the…

If the Dress Don’t Fit, Buy It Anyway?

So I bought this dress, this past weekend, It doesn’t quite fit. Well, actually it fits EXACTLY, no wiggle room, no booty shaking room, and well…breathing while wearing was quite the feat. Don’t you hate that? …but it’s so cute so… I could probably have it tailored, but I probably won’t. It is like everything else in my life, it will sit there waiting to be fixed until I abandon it or toss it in the giveaway pile. So anyway, this dress is definitely on trend, with the one shoulder and…

Life is Too Short, Buy the Leather Leggings, Already

So you’re thinking that you might want to add leather leggings to your wardrobe, but you’re hesitating to take the plunge. Maybe you think you are too curvy, maybe you think your badoncky is a little too big. Or… …maybe you are very thin and you think the look may be a little too trash baggy. Or… …maybe you are a little older and the thought of shiny pants just seems ridiculous. If you’re thinking any of these things, banish the negative thoughts and go out and get you some-sexiness-in-a pair-of-pants, girl.…

Monday Confessions: How About a Vlog To Pass the Time? |Video

First off, I have to say that I hope everyone is having a very reflective and productive Martin Luther King Jr Day! Share love today, share hope today, share peace. So I have to say one thing… Perfection is the enemy of productivity. I am a perfectionist and I have to stop it. I spent the better part of the weekend editing a vlog that was supposed to be up on Friday. Can you see the problem already? I missed my deadline. Ugh!!!! I missed my own self-imposed deadline because I…

My Mini Designer Bag Collection and Luxury Wishlist

Throughout the years I have accumulated the odd luxury item here and there. I remember being an Army wife with two young children years ago. I chose to stay at home with my children when they were very young, one because young Soldiers are not rolling in dough, and depending on where we were stationed, the spouse often had very little real job prospects at the time, aside from retail. We made the conscious decision to put our family first, make sacrifices, and do without much beyond the basics, especially…

Monday Confessions: Garance and Me

Heading to see Hidden figures, an early morning show because the hubby and I are really young senior citizens, I decided to read a few pages in a new book I picked up before Christmas. I picked up the Garance Dore book to read on the way, because I am on a perpetual search for: Glamour Organization Simplicity                                                                …

‘Tis the Season…Blah Blah Blah

When I started this blog, I said that I would be honest. So here goes. Christmas Time is here… (pretend like you hear the song playing over this sentence). Christmas time is here, and while everyone is fa-la-laing around, I’m just feeling all grinch-y. By the way, I’ve been known to make up words. I don’t know, maybe it’s anxiety about where I’m going with this blogging thing, maybe it’s hormones, maybe it’s climate change or more like Climate personality disorder. It’s 50 one day, 20 the next, ice in…

Christmas Party Get Ready With Me Blogmas Day 3

Last night we had the good fortune to attend my hubby’s company Christmas Party, which is always a really nice event. I wanted to look especially fetching. Fetching, such a cool word. It is a shame people don’t use it anymore. I decided that I wanted to make sure my skin was exfoliated, glowy and moisturized  so my morning skincare routine consisted of products that my skin loves. May Lindstrom The Honey Mud Indie Lee CoQ10 Lotion Chanel Le Weekend Caudalie Premier Cru La Creme Yeaux Josie Maran Argan Oil…
