I was on my way to go see 47 Ronin with my hubby.

This has to be one of my favorite tops…of all time. I got it from Mango on clearance for $4.99. Ladies and Gents, have no fear of the clearance rack.

Winged eyeliner and dark lips to finish the look!

What about the movie? The movie 47 Ronin was a great movie and I really loved the story.

Any movie recommendations?


Romantic & Elegant Essence of Lace {Timeless Fashion Piece}

Hello My Loves,

I adore everything about lace. I love the romantic feel of lace so it comes as no surprise that I have a lot of it in my closet.

“There is perhaps nothing more elegant and history-inspired in fashion than a garment embellished with lace.”

There are so many different ways to wear lace. Now, you can buy lace tops, shorts, skirts, dresses, tights, etc.

However, ladies and gents, when wearing lace please PLEASE remember there is difference between classy, elegant lace and sexy, borderline trashy lace. How do you gauge whether you are classy or ready to cross that border? Be aware of the thickness of the lace. If the top is completely sheer and you are wanting to look classy wear a camisole underneath, if you are wanting to look sexy wear a bandeau top underneath, and if you are wanting to cross that border (no judgement from me) wear nothing underneath.

If you are wanting to wear a lace dress but feel there is too much lace action going on, break it up by wearing a blazer or a jacket with it.

My feet look off color in this photo but I assure you they are receiving enough oxygen. 🙂

The top is from Free People, Shorts are from Decree ( a line from JCP), and I have Tieks on my feet.

I didn’t wear an accessories with this outfit because the top already says so much and that where I want the focus.

Do you wear lace? If so, how do you rock it?

The Power of the Little Black Dress {Timeless Fashion Piece}

I love everything about fashion. I love the fact that you can say so much about yourself with what you wear. To me, fashion is a silent form of communication.

Fashion has many trends that come and go. Some of them we are happy to see go and others we may not willingly let go. With that being said, I have decided to bring to you posts about timeless fashion pieces. There are so many items that you may have in your closet that are considered timeless.

Today I am introducing you to my timeless fashion piece number one. The little black dress. Four words that are filled with elegance and class. I adore little black dresses. Especially ones that can be worn more than one way.

I bought this dress a few years ago and I have had a serious love affair with it ever since.  It has seen many parties and date nights with the hubby. I can add things to this dress to make it fit the weather making it wearable through all the seasons.
