Little Navy Dress Worn to Work for the First Time.

Image
This Little Navy Dress... that looks like something any of the Kardashian Sisters would wear, was a (early January) 2012 purchase. I gifted myself 4 new dresses and some accessories from T Box when I got my job (here in Albania). This dress was part of that purchase. It is very structured, modern and classic at the same time. Sexy and simple. I love the sleeves and the exposed zipper on the back. I also love the ponte material which washes easily and doesn't wrinkle much. As a matter of fact, I got one in a dark red too. However the red one I had to get a bigger size because sizes S were sold out. So that one still has the tags and hangs in my closet. It needs to make a trip to the seamstress. I might add pockets to that one and maybe alter the syle a tiny bit. Though I love multiples and if there is something I like and must have, I might own it in 2, 3, 4 or even 5 different colors or patterns. As you can tell I had fun the day I wore this dress cause I sure as heck took a lot o…

Black Popped with some Orange...

Hi Girlies. It is Sunday Evening, almost 9.00 PM and I thought I'd share another "cold weather, warm layers" outfit for you this Sunday. Once again this was not worn to work but rather on my days outside of work, to run errands and to have a drink or cup of coffee with a girlfriend. I just want you guys to notice that the orange in my sweater does match the blanket over our bed, doesn't it? LOL One more thing I wanted to say is that this Little Black Blazer is my favorite Black Blazer (I think =P). It is cute, feminine, versatile, light-weight yet thick enough to carry on for all 4 different seasons. =) And with that said, I am keeping this short and sweet as I am about to make a quick little dinner for hubby and I and then I will curl up to my bed since it has been an exchausting week. Hopefully next week will be better and sweeter. It is My Birthday Week after all!!

Black and Gray, On a Rainy...

Well Hello there: Good Morning, how are you? I am happy to report that I woke up in our new home, in our new bed, this morning. Yes, we bought a new bed. We needed too. Ours was on its last lifeline =P. It was just a matter of time. And speaking of things we need for our new place - there are a ton: lighting fixtures, a dinning room table set, a coffee table, some pictures, art and frames, etc. etc. We really want to be able to call this place A HOME. It will slowly but surely get there. I really need to cut my personal shopping and purchase home goods instead. I love shopping for home stuff after all. But I still think I like shopping for personal clothes, a tad more.

So my first night of sleep in the new house, was not that good. But this had nothing to do with the fact that we changed places or that we have a new bed. Our new bed is quite comfy actually. It has to do with my headaches. I suffer from migraines and last night after we got together for some drinks to celebrate our new…

Hi Girlies. I just finished posting a questionnaire type of post for FRIEND FRIDAY. I have found these Blog Questions online, so I have decided to answer some of them weekly, on Fridays. Every week there is a new topic that is always somehow connected to a Blog, styles of writing a blog, outfits, fashion, style, etc. I feel so accomplished today as I had my regular work day, came home, made myself something to eat, did a ton of packing so we can be ready tomorrow for our movers. They will be by my door at 9.00 AM sharp. I plan on being up by 7.00 AM since I still have to empty away some cupboards and drawers in my kitchen as well as unpack my bathroom. But rather than that, everything is put away in boxes, bags and luggage. And I will be honest about it you guys: it didn't take me long at all. I guess packing and unpacking a gazillion times, before I made my move from US has its advantages. I wasn't so OCD about packing this time as everything will get unpacked within the next…

Friend Friday: Body Image.

1. Since you started blogging has your image of yourself changed?
Not really. My body is what it is. My face is what it is. Sometimes, like most girls I don't like myself in the morning when I wake up or after a super long and tiresome day. However in general, I have always had and kept a positive body image about myself. And I don't mean just physically. I think I am quite stylish, plus it helps that people in my life and even outsiders think so. =) I have been nick-named FASHION PLATE since over a decade ago when I finished high school and started college. I think that's when my sense of self and sense of style truly started developing and emerging, as well. So yes overall I feel positive about myself, physically and about the way I dress myself and how I present myself to the world!! =)

2. Are you self-conscious about any aspect of yourself? If so, do you go out of your way to avoid it or do you post it/talk about it anyway?
At times I am sel…

Hi Girls, did you miss me? I don't even know where to start?! I plan on doing a big Brain Dump today.

Yesterday I didn't post "Wonderful Wednesday". First off my wednesday wasn't wonderful and secondly even-though I wanted to post an OOTD anyway, I was going to accompany it with this brain dump I am doing today. By the time my day ended (what a long and emotional day I had too), I was poopped and didn't feel like blogging or writing at all. I caught up on a little "Gossip Girl" and to bed I went.

So as I may have mentioned in an earlier blog, we are moving this week. Let me explain. =) You girls know that in November of last year I made the huge move and took a risky leap of faith to leave United States for Albania. At the time we rented a tiny, old, fixer-upper type of apartment. We knew once spring or summer would kick in we would start looking at a nicer, better, newer or new apartment. See, I live in Tirana, which is the most populated city o…

It is 11.00 o'clock PM, I am extremely tired, I am hungry, it has been a looooongggg day and I have an outfit to post so this will be super-quick. There will be a lengthy blog, tomorrow. =) So here is one of my favorite sweater dresses (a new purchase of late) featuring cool, wide stripes that look like a lace inprint. I mixed a little here by doing two jewel colors (royal blue & purple) and two different prints (stripes & floral). I love the results. I must say this is quite a sassy look.
