Mod-ri Gras

It’s been a week since Fat Tuesday, but finally here is my Mardi Gras look. Instead of decorating the office with hearts all over for Valentine’s Day I went a tad bit more festive this year with purple, green and gold. There is something about decorating that boosts up my mood instantly. Mardi Gras is not just for party animals, but a way to celebrate life and enjoy it with other people. What holiday isn’t about celebrating life really? This Winter, oh you Winter -has not been an easy one, but I put all that aside and went with a purple mini which for me isn’t so mini (remember I’m 5 feet and a little something), a new turtleneck to add to the family, and some knee high boots for a complete mod look. Can’t forget the beautiful masks we played around with that were provided by my lovely co-worker.

How do you all think I pulled off the masked mod look?

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?

Fur Old Time

I never really been into fur until I borrowed this jacket from my sister. I loved the way it looked on her New Year’s with her Pixie Market dress. She joined me on the Altuzarra for Target adventure and the jacket was what she got from the whole collection, while I bought one too many pieces! I thought it would be a huge fashion statement if I wore her faux fur over my turtleneck dress for my sister’s Chanel theme birthday party, and keep it on all night. Chanel + party + fur = tres chic. 😉 The only other accessories I added to my look were cocktail rings for some bling against all the black.

Are you adding (faux) fur to your outerwear collection?

What do you think of my sister’s Chanel cake?
