Love Me Like You Do

I decided to go for a low key celebration for my 10 year anniversary…a trip to the movies. What did I go see? Fifty Shades of Grey of course. It was the perfect movie for the occasion. The soundtrack is also a great listen if you want to get in the mood. I took a risk and dressed up for love and not necessarily for the weather. (Lol). Nothing says L-O-V-E like a LRD (little red dress). I went with a 50’s meets the 90’s vibe in my faux fur and choker combination.

How do you all think I pulled off my look? Did you watch Fifty Shades this past weekend? What did you think?

H is for…

Him. Last night I celebrated his birthday at our favorite Italian restaurant, Isle of Capri. Fine dining and best of all great service. Then we walked over to the fifth avenue holiday window displays to get into the Christmas spirit. I really love to see what they come up with every year; Bergdorf Goodman’s theme is The Arts: Music, Literature, Dance etc. Birthdays are always a celebration -another year alive and well. For me, that’s reason enough to dress up. The weather was awful. Rainy, gloomy days are a drag to get dressed for. However, for a special person like he is, I put on my very best. This Altuzarra for Target dress is just the beginning of holiday party looks…

How do you celebrate birthdays? Do you dress up or is it just another day for you?

Ch-Ch-Changes

This past Monday was a life changing experience for me. For some it wouldn’t have been that dramatic, but trying to keep your apartment was a big deal to me. After a successful meeting with the landlord, I can now breathe easy and enjoy the holidays. To make it even better, the weather was a high of 70 degrees! You know what that means? Open toe shoes! Yes I went as far as looking like I was cut out of a Resort 2015 ad! A button down safari shirt, denim skirt, camouflage sandals and sunglasses that scream I’m ready for a vacation! After all this I think it’s time for one, so even if I couldn’t book a trip, I had to dress the part. For now,  I’m just happy to be spending Thanksgiving with my parents in their new home.

How will you spending Thanksgiving this year?
Any vacation plans in 2015?

Have a wonderful and grateful Thanksgiving weekend!
