Pretty in Pink Pumps

Hey dolls, just a quickie outfit post today. I was feeling my pink Viva Glam Nicki1 lippie a whole lot this weekend, I've had it forever and have only worn it once! So sad. It definitely inspired this cutesy, girlie, pink and blue outfit. Springtime always makes me feel so fun and flirty and this dress has been screaming for me to wear it since last summer. It's lightweight material and flirty high-low hemline is perfect for these spring days. Don't be afraid to add basic, yet versatile pieces to your wardrobe dolls. This dress would be equally gorge belted or worn off the shoulder or even as a top or tunic paired with jeans and a blazer.

The FIT:
Dress: Forever 21 (last year)
Heels: Miu Miu
Scarf worn as headband: Thrifted
Necklace: Macy's......i think.
Lippie: MAC Viva Glam Nicki (1st edition)

Vintage Finds & Remixing

Hey dolls, can we please discuss my new thrifting treasures today....If you don't mind. I mean, I'm not really a hard core true lover of thrifting. I like to thrift, sometimes....and can appreciate thrifting....most times.....but simply don't have the patience for it.....most times! There is also just something about wearing old, musty smelling clothes that someone else has had on their body that just doesn't appeal to me. However, the thrill of finding something one of a kind or exclusive at only a fraction of the full price that usually silences my inner snob. My most recent thrifting trip with my intern little sister Asantee was a major score in my book. Most times I get so frustrated by the racks of garbage I don't usually stick around long enough to really get in the nitty gritty to find the good stuff but Santee wanted to go thrifting so thrifting we went! I came across a MAJOR wardrobe staple I had been missing a good jean jacket and this super cute, comfy and classic Coach crossbody bag. I mean how awesome is that! I know some dolls are lucky enough to come across a dope Dior blazer or vintage Gucci bag but I don't care, I was ecstatic buy my Levi's and Coach.  I can wear both pieces with endless items in my wardrobe and for about 15 bucks between the both of them you can't beat that with a baseball bat!

I love this casual look I wore this weekend to run errands and grab lunch. I haven't been doing much shopping lately since I have gained a bit of weight and hardly any of my clothes fit anymore and I simply REFUSE to buy a bigger size. I won't do it. Period. End of Story. This dress from Undeniable Boutique is the perfect piece to camoflauge my transition.

If you haven't noticed I am all about BIG hair and a BOLD lip this Spring. I have not been afraid of messy hair and being a new resident of Flordia the humidity is sure to kick my straight hair and perfect curls to the curb. If any of you dolls are Floridians please tell me how do you beat the heat and humidity down here. I know now I won't be in a full face of makeup very often! ;-)

Anyway, hope you dolls enjoy this look and thanks so much for stopping by!!
The FIT:
Dress: Undeniable Boutique, I freakin LOVE this dress!
Levis Jean Jacket: Thrifted, yes I said THRIFTED!
Crossbody bag: Coach and also thrifted!! *insert squeal*
Heels: Calvin Klein
Earrings: ASOS, Watch: Michael Kors, Arm Candy: Forever 21, Jewellinks, Sunnies: Gucci

 Since moving to Florida I don't even try to tame this beast anymore with this humidity, BIG hair it is!

Calling All Military Fashionistas....I SALUTE YOU!

Are you a woman associated with the military? Do you LOVE fashion and have MAJOR style? Are you just as fierce in Stilettos as you are in Combat Boots? Then I want to feature you on my blog as part of my new #StyleSalute feature!! Send me your pics TODAY to!

Starting next Monday I will be launching a new feature on the blog that highlights military chicks with style. Style Salute Mondays is targeted at military women with exceptional style. This feature is open to Active Duty military, Reserves, Veterans, and spouses. Through this feature I hope to shed light on these heroic woman who not only serve this country but also serve MAJOR style off duty. This feature will highlight the feminine side of a very male dominating world that too often strips us of our individuality and femininity. This is aimed to be more than just another feature, but a movement that I hope will encourage women to embrace their personal style and celebrate their style evolution no matter what lifestyle they live.  Also, you dolls will personally get to understand that beauty and style DOES exist behind the uniform.  

One of the most annoying comments I would get when I separated was, “Your too pretty or stylish to have been in the military”. My reply would often be, 'Oh no hunni, don’t let the camo fool you they're some fierce ladies in the military!' They were under the impression that military women didn’t care about girlie things, that all we did was shoot guns, roll around in the dirt and act tough. Through this feature I hope to put these stereotypes to rest and allow my Diamond Dolls in arms a place to be Saluted for great Style.  
If you are a woman associated with the military and would like to participate in this feature please send me your pics!! Email me your pics of you looking fierce on and off duty. Send me your social media links and branch of service and check back on Mondays to see if your the feature of the week!

Next year Coachella is surely on my MUST-DO list......who's with me?!
