Greetings my friends!! It has been far too long wouldn’t you agree? Since I’ve been gone I’ve made my first YouTube video! Say whaaat???!! I know…I know LOL It was just a test run! Check it out here. Blogging/Vlogging is a part-time job! Well it is if you want to deliver quality material to your followers. And that is exactly what I intend to do for you guys! Just bare with me in the mean time in between time. (hehe) So what better way to make a “come back” then with a OOTD post right?! My first love is definitely fashion. I posted this pic on my facebook page, but you need details right?! I gotchu boo!
This look was for a casual day of shopping (no surprise here *wink-wink*). I know the photo quality isn’t the best, still working on that. Anywho, as promised here are the deets:

Although the Winter season is upon us, that doesn’t mean you should shy away from color just don’t over do it! Stay tuned for my post on the lastest trend NEONS!
Ok I apologize for being tardy for the party, I’m just now posting the recap for the Thrift Crawl with FashDet this past Saturday! I was so looking forward to this! Everyone met at Caribou Coffee of Royal Oak. I was able to sip a tasty smoothie and chat with the founders of FashDet before the rest of the guest arrived. I would like to say Inez and Erika are the sweetest ladies you could ever meet! I felt like I’ve known them forever!
Shortly after, a few more guest arrived. We all snapped pics and tweeted about the excitement of thrifting! First stop was Paris Antiques. There I purchased a really cool owl necklace. Afterwards we shimmied next door to the Salvation Army. They had some nice things there. I got a skirt by J.Crew. Then we fought the wind, it was vicious, and headed to Chocolate Shop Vintage. This is where the madness begins! Most items were marked $5. I purchased a sweater,dress,and blouse! Last on the roster was Lost and Found Vintage. Their collection was awesome! I got an 80’s peplum dress from here.
I had a blast, and I’m looking forward to more meetups! Below you’ll find a list of all the attendees and their blogs. Pics can be found >>>here<<< on my facebook page!
There is nothing more classic and chic than pleats! A new style trend for the upcoming spring season is the pleated maxi. Naturally Chic did a great post >>here << on how to rock a pleated mid-length/maxi. Don’t be afraid of bright colors and mixing textures. Statement jewlery are an effortless option to pull the entire look together.
- (First Pic) I love the color blocking and different lenghts of this skirt. A nude crop top works well not pulling the attention away from the skirt.
- (Middle Pic)Look at our First Lady looking oh so FAB! in her pleats!
- (Last Pic) The metalic maxi and skiny belt are from different ends of the spectrum but it works.
Miranda Kerr is looking oh so stylish in black on black!
Hello ladies and gents! I have been neglecting my blog and my readers…shame-shame on me! But the good news is I’m back! There is so much for me to catch you up on! I met the wonderful ladies of FashDet!!! Erika and Inez (the creators of FashDet) are so pleasant and I had a blast checking out all the great Vintage Boutiques in Royal Oak. The other bloggers were very friendly as well! The positive energy from this group was phenomenal! Stay tuned for a recap of Saturday’s Thrift Crawl! Meanwhile check out the photos here. I’m so excited to show you guys the great pieces I got!!
In other news I have an interview with another Detroiter (Detroit is making moves out here!) His name is Edgar Powell. Founder of I Love My Life Clothing. I don’t want to give away too much info just yet! Stay tuned for that as well!
Your’s truly will be turning the BIG 2-7 on Feb.7 Yes, yes I’m approaching 3-0 *awkward silence* lol I plan to celebrate this Saturday, Feb.4 at Black Finn of Royal Oak. I would love to see you there so we can party like rock stars!! What will I be wearing??? You’ll have to wait for that one too 😉 As always thanks for stopping by!
I spotted this cute black and white striped blazer at ShopStyle.com by Bergdorf Goodman. The blazer retails for $198.
I spotted a very similar blazer at JCPenny for $30 by Olsenboye. You don’t have to spend a fortune to be fabulous! What ya think?
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I have a soft spot for blazers! They are one of THE most hottest trends right now. The great thing about blazers, you can find them almost everywhere! I’m sure my fellow thrifters can agree 🙂 A blazer can turn a regular pair of jeans or pencil skirt into instant glam with a statement necklace and a blazer. Pair it with a large clutch and you’re ready to go! Blazers come in all types of patterns and textures. So there is definitely something for everyone. There’s the boyfriend blazer, the cropped blazer, and the form fitting blazer. Here are some of my favs.
So if you don’t own one grab one! A basic black blazer can be worn many many ways!! So have fun with it. You’ll be surprised how one piece can turn some of your favs into a whole new outfit 😉 Below you’ll see how I paired a basic black blazer with splashes of white and yellow. You’ll definitely be QUEEN BEE in this hot ensemble!
