Pink Gladiator

Hi fashionable people.  Today is my birthday eve.  I wanted to go to a club to usher in another year of life. Not that I had any doubts about it lol.  I had fun, but I wouldn't have missed anything if I stayed in.

This sheer lace blouse is so feminine I love it.  The only thing I would change about the top would be to wear a different bra.  My sis told that I looked like I was wearing a training bra.

In the Jungle, the mighty Jungle

Leopard and red oh my!  This is my only leopard print top, and I want more.  I'm always tempted to wear it when I'm heading out.  I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for reasonably priced animal print tops.

Rocking Red

I'm loving a red lip these days.  I used to shy away from bright lips and I never went anywhere near lipstick.  I thought it was better suited to church ladies.  Oh how far I've come.

Here We Go Again

Hi ladies and gents,
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Mine was a little to chaotic for my liking, and I am looking forward to Friday already.  I dealt with a break up over the weekend, and of course I feel like a villain in my own life story.  The ex is a really great person, but I just didn't feel the spark that we once had in the relationship amongst other things.  Although I am still feeling like the crappiest person walking this lovely green Earth, I think it was for the best.

Montreal, Je Me Souviens

Yes, I know it's Quebec Je Me Souviens but I went to Montreal so bear with me.  I went to Montreal with a couple of friends and my sis to celebrate one of our friend's birthday.  The trip had some highs and lows.

High: Sucking on blow pops in the club
Low: Having a heated argument with my sis's friend

High: Attempting to translate hot sauce in French
Low: Not realizing there are two taxes in Canada

Be Back in a Jiffy

Hi ladies and gents,
I just wanted to let you know that I will not be blogging this weekend.  I will be in Montreal, Canada (woohoo!!).  But I added some new posts, and I will be back with two posts on Monday.  I went out to dinner with the fam last Saturday, and the following Sunday I went to a great soccer match.  I had a blast, and I think I put some nice pieces together.  Sit tight until Monday loves!

Earth, Wind & Fire

I've had loads of fun styling this jacket.  It is such a lovely cognac color and it complements a lot of different colors as well.  I wanted a brown leather jacket soo bad for such a long time.  One day while in a plaza I noticed that Arden B was having a really great sale.  I think it was 65% off of their clearance.  I lucked out and got about 2 leather jackets and some really cute black cocktail dresses.  It's the little things in life that make me happy.

I went to the Haiti vs Harvard soccer game today.  It was the first real soccer game that I've ever watched.  I had such a fabulous time.  The sole reason that I went to the game, was because the Haitian National team was playing, and the proceeds were going to Partners In Health (check them out, they have a lot of great initiatives).

This is one of the fedora's that I bought from Filene's Basement.  I love love the colors, and the belt buckle.

All Dressed Up with No Where to Go

Today I was supposed to be meeting up with my friend Z for brunch.  We usually schedule a brunch or drinks and appetizers date at least 2x a month.  We've been to some really great restaurants so far.  We spend this time catching up on life.

However, if you noticed the title of this post, and the opening sentence; I did not make it to brunch.  Z and I have hardcore communication issues at times.  There was a huge misunderstanding and we ended up rescheduling.

Family Affair

Today my family and I went out to dinner to celebrate both my brother and sister in law's birthdays.  We went to Venezia's, it's on the water and the view was beautiful.  The food was delicious and the vibe was fun and nostalgic.

Today I went to a volunteer info session at Partners In Health.  They have a lot of great programs.  They have a program based in Haiti, and they also have a fantastic program that brings kids who need extra medical attention to Boston from Haiti.  The volunteer session was for interested hosts, event planners, tutors and an admin assistant.

I want to apologize in advance for the qualities of my recent pics.  My Olympus camera is misbehaving and I've been using iPhoto to capture OOTD posts.  I'm currently shopping for a new camera, if you ladies and gents have any suggestions, I'd love to read them.  I'm looking for a slim point and shoot camera under $300.  I loved my Olympus and I want something similar.

*I love Nikon & Canon DSLR cameras, but they are way out of my budget and I don't like the idea of lugging it around all the time.

Taupe (ing) You Have a Great Day

Good day fair readers!  I noticed that I really like the color taupe.  I don't have a lot of taupe in my closet, but the few that I do have get a lot of action.  Like this taupe sweater/cardigan thingamajiggy.  I adore the waffle design, and it's so versatile that I can pair it with a T, long sleeves or a sleeveless top or dress.
 I got this pendant at Claire's for $2, and I do not regret my purchase at all.  I was drawn to the vintage perfume bottle design and the attractive price.

These reptilian inspired booties are one of my faves.  They're really comfortable, and the design is unlike anything that I've seen in regular stores like F21 or H&M.  The taupe sweater/cardigan thingamajiggy brings out the taupe in the bootie so this outfit is #winning all around for me.

Sweater/cardigan: Old Navy; Turtleneck: Sears; Jeans: F21; Booties: Nordstrom; Jewelry: Various stores

Ruffles and Stripes Oh My!

What was I doing with my life before H&M reentered?  Lol, I currently love H&M.  I haven't always but now that we've talked it out, things are going great.  I think it has something for just about any style.  Their clothes are also really reasonably priced.  Cute, trendy and low cost, sounds like a keeper in my book (yes I have a book).  My biggest gripe with H&M though, is their pricing system.  I rarely buy anything full price at H&M because the same item that was priced $34.95 will be discounted to $10-$15 with a week or two.  So cherished readers shop full price at your own peril (dramatic I know lol).

* I am not being paid for advertising, I just really love the store.

What is it about the sepia effect that makes everything look so whimsical?
