Flashback Friday: Orange and Black.

Image
As far as I know I do not own a lot of Orange. Though, now that I am typing this I am dressed very comfortably and wearing some Orange. You will see today's outfit sometime next week. Today I wanted to do a Flashback Friday type of post (I used to do these every now and then on Fridays, but haven't done them much in over a year). Since it is the Friday before Halloween, I am focusing on Orange and Black today (in my looks). These are all from my archives. Most outfits are older than a year so as I look back, I will write a little about each outfit, what I think of that particular outfit, today, as in October 29th 2015. Let's take a look down memory lane together, shall we?
Original Post. Even-though this outfit is 3.5 years old, I remember it very well. I have a photographic memory in general so I do remember most of my outfits, but some in my particularly I remember very well, including the little details. This is one of them. I love this outfit head to toe, maybe because …

Edgy and Cozy in Target Layers.

Image
mentioned a trip to Target the other day. I wanted to look for some things for me and for some Holiday outfits for Vivian. I originally picked up 6 or 7 things for me, but was good and only ended up purchasing three: this duster plaid dress, some booties and espadrille flats (all on sale). I bought 2 Holiday dresses, an outfit and a set of pajamas for Vivian, though. I have seen these long hi-lo duster shirt-dresses and really wanted to try this one from Target myself, plus it is Plaid and in Black+White, which I love. I am not sure I pull off this style well though, you tell me?! Or maybe I am not too crazy about the dress layered up into a cozy Fall Look (which you can see each layer on the collage above). What do you think? Does the Duster Dress look OK for Fall? I think it would look super adorable on its own for Summer. I would belt it and wear some cute sandals with it. 
So for a brisk cold day yesterday, I layered a Lilac (almost a Light Gray) Cardigan underneath the Edgy Pl…

Pink Patterned Shirtdress, Fringe Booties and Breast Cancer Awareness Linkup.

Happy Hump Day you all and Happy Linkup Day! I hope you have all enjoyed wearing Pink and showing Amy and I your pink-themed fashions, clothes, makeup and more this month on Mondays and Wednesdays.  We have loved seeing all the participants and though today is the last day, the linkup will stay open till the last  day of this month. October is almost over, folks. I have had fun co-hosting this linkup with Amy, bi-weekly.

I pulled today's outfit from the archives (being honest here) because during some busy and very cold last couple of days, I haven't been able to have a new pink outfit ready for you. I actually wore pink last week to a shower, but I don't have those photos ready. And I wore some pink yesterday but it was too chilly and windy for pictures so I didn't bother with photos. But, not to worry, I will share those outfits on this here blog, soon. Today, I paired a Baby Pink Geometric-Print Silk Shirt-dress with my Fringe Camel Booties, why not! The little rect…

Halloween's Colors.

Image
I wore this outfit yesterday for a Starbucks and Target run (Vivian got some new Outfits for the Holiday season). And as you can see I am wearing Halloween's Colors: Black, Orange and Purple. Well, my Cardigan and my Jacket are both a few lighter shades than the actual Halloween Orange and Halloween Purple but my bag is the perfect Bright Orange. Originally I was going to wear Black Flats but Miss Vivian chose my shoes for me and I couldn't say no to her. These Comfortable Little Pink Pumps worked out great with the Lavender Jacket, especially since both pieces are Suede and they matched the Little Dangly Light Pink Earrings I had on. I did have the jacket over my shoulders for when I was out since it was a little windy, but rather than that, the cardigan was perfectly warm enough. And I am wearing Culottes which I have had in my closet for years. I am glad they are back in style. Actually, I shopped my closet for this entire look, today. Are you wearing any Orange, Black or …

Bohemian 70s Inspired Week: Suede Flares, Bell Sleeves, a Bow and a Hat.

Image
I was so inspired to wear Bohemian and 70s-Inspired clothes lately, that I wanted to dress in the 70s era, just once more this week. I wore this outfit to breakfast out with a cousin yesterday. This outfit definitely has Boho, 70s and even some Country-style elements to it. It's a good thing the place we went to eat breakfast at, is a country-style restaurant lol. But, as a matter of fact I bought this hat from Forever 21 two weeks ago and I was dying to wear it. I almost wore it with this dress or with this dress but the way I styled those dresses the times I wore them, the hat didn't quite go. I love bow-tie blouses. Lately I have been inspired to try a collar blouse and tie a scarf around it as a big bow. I have seen this 70s trend pop into magazines, blogs I follow, Pinterest, ads I get sent to my e-mail from some of my favorite stores, etc. So I tied around a Long Silk Geometric-Print Scarf to my 70s/Boho Hot Pink Blouse with Puffy Bell Sleeves and to add another 70s ele…
