We Are All Meant To Shine

And I chose to in this sparkly number. Its an oldie, but goodie in my closet. I don’t wear it that often, but when I do I feel really, really sassy!

Do you have a piece of clothing that stands out from the all the rest?

Does it shine bright like a diamond?

Keeping the Spark Alive…

…In the Daytime

Do you ever feel so accustomed to your 9-5 grind, that the wear down reflects your clothing? Whether you love your day job or not, sometimes getting dressed for work becomes work. Yes, even I get a little uninspired. It seems like spring has sprung everywhere, but the East Coast and you just can’t help feeling gloomy.

So, today’s outfit I decided to add a little sparkle to my ensemble. My jacket literally sparkled, covered in tiny and subtle, light reflecting sparkles. I love a well rounded peplum like this one I found for a steal at Forever 21, just under $35. Needless to say I didn’t stop there with the sparkles. My rings were blinged out, and my shoes shined bright like a diamond. However, I made sure my pencil skirt was sleek and simple for a sophisticated finish.

I’m praying that it can warm up for good -for some more open toe, leg baring situation.

How do you all think I pulled off daytime sparkle? Would you wear sparkle accents or sequins to the office?

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?

Pinkalicious

She loves pink and pink loves her back.

A super cute endless story of a pink obsessed little girl. I took my niece to see Pinkalicious The Musical Sunday afternoon and I’ve never seen so much pink in one room, tutus everywhere and even dads in the audience were getting their pink on. She had an absolutely great time in her pink ensemble and so did I. 🙂

Do you love musicals? How about the color pink?
