Did someone say sequins?

Blazer : Zara Basics; Top: Juliet'scloset (ross); Pants: Crest Jeans; Bag: Sasha and Heel: Delicious

So im making an effort to post more regularly..atleast every other day..i did my surgery yesterday so im still recuperating...let me say this though a "minor" surgery might be minor in terms of the actual operation the recuperation can be horrible especially if it has anything to do with the eye, throat or nose...those can be extremely uncomfortable.

About the look: This look was inspired by lookbook. Even though i don't post pictures there i visit it as well as chictopia quite often for inspiration. The inspiration for this look actually came from an ad  on the site rather than one of the postings. I was more than willing to recreate  it because one, i have all the pieces and two, sequins are all the rage right now...and i love em. I want a sequins blazer so bad ..ive been trolling the thrift stores lately trying to find one but havent been lucky so thinking of just buying one new but then i know the minute i do is the minute i will stumble upon one while thrifting. you know of any stores with reasonably priced (say $50)  sequins jacket (black or silver)right now? let me know....

P.S. tomorrow is thanksgiving...though i grew up in a country that doesnot celebrate such a day, i know that it means alot to some happy thanksgiving to you and yours...
kisses :-)

She wore a red dress!

Ok so there is a pretty funny (not haha funny)  story to this dress. I bought this dress from forever 21 some time ago...i think it was apart of the yellow tag deal and i got it for like 10 or thereabouts....anyway ive had it for a while just sitting there  till several sundays ago i finally got around to wearing it...only to spill on it ( i dont even remember what exactly)  and then put it in the machine even though the tag clearly says .."handwash"..and now its all messed up... it shrunk..but not after putting it in the dryer ....nope i didnt have to go that far (and believe me i was gonna) it shrunk coming out of the washer..can you beleive that? husband kept saying it would go back to normal when it dried but sadly it didnt :-( im not giving up though im thinking of wearing it as a maxi skirt..what do you think ? and yes i know it wasnt exactly the cleverest thing to throw it in the machine but what can i say.. sometimes i just cannot be bothered

The Green Monster

Top: Anna and Frank (Vintage); Skirt: Marshalls; Bag: Jennifer Moore; Shoes : Delicious

Hey ladies, HAPPY FRIDAY!! im so sorry ive been mia for like the two weeks, ive been busy and also a little sick..i even have surgery coming up soon..nothing major though..out patient thank God..because he ALONE knows how much i truly truly hate hospitals, needles blood and the works...anyways this outfit i wore sometime ago when i was apartment hunting...i didnt wear the heels though..haha..the top was thrifted..i kno alot people dont like second hand clothing but i dont mind because its cheap, and i tend to stay away from torn, stained and really smelly items. I love thrifting tops though because thrift stores have a wide variety of colours and very nice, well made, great material (silk even) tops that are so comfortable to wear during the day....the skirt is from marshalls and the shoes from ross..what do you think of this look..
p.s today is veterans days! so my husband (who is military) and i will probably go out tonight and get in on some of the not sure though...pass by chicisimo to see my look ...
