Reggae World Unity Concert

Jacket: Forever 21; Top: Marshalls; Tights: Forever21; Boots: Gojane

Hi lovelies! my computer was out (for repairs) the last couple days but  now im back. I just wanted to share with you a quick post. I wore this outfit last month to a dancehall/reggae concert. I love the leggings but they are absolutely no good. I accidently got some sauce on them (the black part) and attempted to spot treat ..the next day the spot was completely faded i had to get black fabric marker to "fix" it. Im kind of diasappointed because i was really hoping to get atleast 4 wears but i guess thats what you get when you try to be me.

Denim and Stripes

♥Jacket: Liz Claiborne♥ Dress: American Rag♥ Bag: Express ♥
Hi every one! how was your vday? mine was pretty sucky ...rain came from out of no where and needless to say i did not get take any photos that night but i plan on getting the look back together and snapping a few pics when i get the chance, i will post those as soon as possible.

About this look: Every now and then we get what i like to call "winter days" in South Florida. These winter days do not tend to last longer than 72 hrs (if we're lucky) so in that small window of time i try to get out as many winter outfits as i can. This outfit is clearly not an average winter look but for 50 to 60 something degree weather (which is what we usually get)  it can work. Otherwise, a denim jacket on a regular Soflo day may lead to heat stroke.

DIY Cross Print Sweater


Sweater:Lauren Scott; Pants: Urban Planet; Bag: Capezio; Boots: Gojane
Hi everyone! im so happy for the positive response to my blog and all my new followers! thank you for all your lovely comments and honestly your feedback makes me actually want to post more often.. So today i just wanted to show you guys another one of my successful (if i should say so myself) diy projects..this cross print sweater..well not the sweater it self  (not quite that resourceful) but the cross on it. The idea came to me luckily while my mum was visiting so i had help. 

What do you need?: Honestly this project is pretty simple ..all you need is black cloth, black thread, scissors, and sewing machine or not? maybe your good at sewing your hands. We purchased less than a yard of black cloth from Joannes for about $3 and i already had everything else (i.e. sewing machine,black thread, scissors). The "hardest" part of this project was actually making sure the cross was cut neat, when that was done we ironed the fabric to make it perfectly flat and then sewed it on. What do you think of my sweater....? would you try it?

My Fashion Pet Peeves

Hi everyone! hope you're having a great weekend so far. So today, i wanted to divert a little and do a little blogging(talking) ..still fashion blogging just with out the photos. As the title of the post suggests, this piece is about my fashion pet peeves. Before going further i want to emphasize the MY. This idea came to me today at the mall, where, if you're into fashion you are sure to see something that you dont care for. Please understand that this is not intended to offend anyone, or to dictate to anyone what not to wear...this is simply an opinion. Please feel free to comment and let me know what are your fashion pet peeves.

1. Too short Maxi dresses/skirts

This maybe unavoidable for really tall girls since most maxi dresses and skirts are made for the average height girl/female. I know it especially bothers me (im just 5'4) when i try on maxi dresses/ skirts and they stop at an awkward length..i mean i want my maxi dresses/skirts to fall below my ankle bone.

2. Too short shorts

I love my shorts as much as any girl BUT i really cannot stand the sight of butt checks..i mean if you can feel air on your ass ...your shorts are too d!^$ short.

3. Too low pants.

Somehow, some women feel its ok to walk around with their butt crack (ugh!)  showing. I don't get it why on earth would you want the public to see that?

4. Running sneakers as regular shoes.

I know all women are not into heels, infact im not that into heels, dont get me wrong i own plenty but i dont wear them for long and i almost always have a pair of flats in my bag. However, i realize that i dont like seeing women dressed up in for example Nike running sneakers as regular foot wear. I think running shoes are only acceptable as an everyday form of foot wear  if the person wearing them is old ( and i do mean old) or for health reasons.

5. Silk hair bonnets

This one is mainly for the sisters..i mean women of colour. I dont know if other women do this but where i live black women are usually the culprits. I see these ladies in the mall, in their cars, in the stores, on the bus (when i took it) with these "things" on their heads...if you dont have a clue what im refering to google it. They look like black shower caps. I've reasoned that some women wear them when they are having a bad hair day but there has to be something ...anything else...that you can find...use a scarf for god sake..i dont know...SOMETHING..ANYTHING ELSE. It really bothers me. Ladies i say this with love , it looks ghetto :)

6. Leggings as pants

I love leggings but I have noticed that forever 21 and some other clothing sites have a tendency to advertise their leggings (as they do their pants) with tucked in tops and/or crop tops, i figure they do it to show the consumer the entire item but ladies leggings as pants is really not a nice thing...i mean panty lines..camel toe..nobody wants to see that. Leggings especially the really cute patterned ones are so nice with a long enough top.

7.  Pajamas anywear but in your house

I think that says it all...i dont know why anyone would want to wear their pjs on the road...i mean short of your house burning down (and  i really  hope that doesnt happen) and you having to run out with the clothes on your back (aka pjs) then dont do it!

8. Knee length leggings

Unless its to the gym...NO.

9. Socks with heels

I have seen girls do this, i have read where its in or was in,..but i dont get it and i dont like seeing it. It doesnt matter how small you are, how cute you isnt such a great idea.

10. Ed hardy anything!

ugh! need i say more?

11.  Bra sticking out at the back of your tank.

If you are wearing a racer back tank then get a racer back type bra..or get the bra hide a strap thing. There are just too many bra accessories for your bra to be visible.

12. Hoodies

This one is weird, i just dont like hoodie. I think they look great on some people.,,i just dont like them. I have about 3 hooded sweat shirts all of which were given to me ...i wear them to either do laundry (in my house!) or when it gets cold (in my house!) 


Let me say this, if i had made this list say six years ago sequins (believe it or not), anything fur and wedges would have definately made their way onto it. Its funny how things have changed.. ;). I love seeing people experiment with fashion, i love that we dont all have the same sense of style, i dont see anything wrong with following or not following trends  and i know my trash might be another girls treasure...but the 12 (if i think of any more i'll let you know) items above really grind my gears (lol!!). Im sure you ladies see fashion ideas that make you want to scream MAKE IT STOP !!!!! what are some of these...i cant wait to hear them :)

In the mean time, here is an outfit ( a favourite of mine, i might add) that i wore a while back. I love this skirt so much and the jacket even more so that putting them together was a no-brainer.

New Years Eve Look

Dress: Forever21; Heels: Fahrenheit; Watch: Invicta

I know its a little late to be posting what i wore on New Years Eve but since my blog was down for so long just getting to it. It was getting late (you might be able to tell) so i did not get to take a lot of pictures. I really wanted a blue sequins dress but i could only find this one at such short notice (the Sunday before new yrs eve Monday) and it turned out i actually really liked it. I was a bit afraid that atleast three other girls would be in this same dress but i got lucky..there were close contenders but i was the only one wearing rose gold I know a full sequins dress is not for everyone but i don't know ..i like a little sparkle on holidays..what do yo think?

My Birthday Celebration Part 2

Top: Marshalls; Skirt: Forever 21; Heels: Rainbow; Clutch: Steve Madden

Hi everyone! Happy Friday!!!!, so to keep my is part two of my birthday extravaganza..I wore this during the day to lunch (minus the heels) or rather brunch. I love this outfit because it can easily be mistaken for a dress when in fact it is the  combination of a high low skirt from forever21 and a dress from marshalls, a dress i was forced to ruin to make this happen (wasn't  that big of a fan anyway plus it was on sale). What do you think of my second outfit?
