Scooped up this little cropped top during the Zara sale over the weekend. Not a bad addition to my closet. I love the bottom of it and the keyhole in the back. The shoes are also new and arrived last week. For the first time I got it right. Usually I order shoes just to send them back because they never work. Not this time! So pumped lol.
On another note, it was so humid out when taking these pics. The mosquitos were killing me. Terrible.

It’s been over a year since I purchased the Studded Devote Rebecca Minkoff bag. Although I love it, it’s definitely time for a new one. I switch it up all the time with an oversized clutch or crossbody bag, but a new one is in order! This week Independent Fashion Bloggers (IFB) encouraged its members to bare what they carried in their purses. So here’s me baring all.
From left to right, top to bottom:
1. Orla Keily wallet from Anthropologie
2. Gum is important
3. Lotion and hand sanitizer
4. Marc by Marc Jacobs coinpurse full of business cards
5. Bottled water is kept handy almost at all times
6. Keys (Check out my initial and FIDM keychain)
8. MAC lipgloss
Occasionally you’ll find candy or snacks, an umbrella or even my mini laptop.
So what’s in your bag?

When I think of Easter I automatically think of florals and pastel-colored clothing. I’m not sure why, though. Why don’t I think of the Easter Bunny, chocolates, or Easter egg hunts? Probably because I am no longer a child! Since those days are long gone, the focus has turned to dressing for Easter festivities when the holiday finally rolls around. Whether it be for church or dinner with the family, I’ve got a couple of ideas as to what makes a great Easter outfit.
Above you will find two looks:
On the model is the Floral Applique’ Tank Dress (from Torrid and available in sizes 12-26). The style of this dress works well on busty women or those that want to take the focus off of their middle area. The dress masks the tummy, but still gives you a flattering shape. Pair it with a cropped black cardigan for more coverage and later wear it with a denim jacket and flat black sandals for a more casual look. Adorable!
For the second look I collected a few pieces. The Shirred Silk Floral Print Dress (from Newport-News and available in sizes 0-16) caught my eye. It hits below the knee unlike the first dress, but still comes in at the waist and has more of an A-line cut. Layer it with the pale pink B.P. Three Quarter Sleeve Cardigan (from Nordstrom). The Faux Pearl Studs and Layered Pearl Necklace are both from Forever 21. I chose pearls because they are clean and simple, letting the print on the dress stand out by itself. The two pairs of shoes are for two different looks. The Michael Antonio Solstice Sandals give a more dressed up vibe and the Dolce Vita Hayden Wedge is a little more casual (both from Endless). Top it off with the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch (from Museten) and your look is complete!
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!
This past Sunday I went to the Style List Fashion Soiree/Mannequin Fashion Show at LUX Lounge in Baltimore. It was my first time going, but I must say that it was nice. White couches, tables, great lighting and the dj was great. There was even food available which is always a good thing. Especially if you didn’t get a chance to eat before you left (like myself) or if you plan on being out until early morning (like myself, again). The fashion show, hosted by Teronce Styyles, didn’t start until after 10pm, but when it did it was intriguing.
Collections from Will C Style, 7 Deadly Sins, Quest Collection, Kas Collection Inc., Emore’J Couture, Renee France Designs and Madison Walker were shown. There was a lot of military & uniform-inspired looks. I saw everything from swimwear to couture. I didn’t take too many pictures, but I did manage to get some of the Emore’J Couture collection.

What I wore:
Leather bomber from Nordstrom, J.Crew V-neck top, Gorjana necklace, Forever 21 skirt and floral tights, Jessica Simpson pumps, Rebecca Minkoff studded hobo bag
Usually I don’t ask for much, if anything, for Christmas these days. As I get older all I really value is the time I get to spend with my family. Receiving gifts doesn’t really matter, although I do love giving them just to see surprised looks on people’s faces. Don’t get me wrong, everyone likes to receive them from time to time as well, but if there was anything I would want it would be these items:
1. Gorjana Key Necklace (Shopbop.com)
2. The Proposal
3. Virginia Johnson Leaves Scarf (Barneys.com)
4. Nikon D5000 Digital SLR Camera (Bestbuy)
5. Pelle Moda Yaritza Platform Wedge Sandals (Shopbop.com)
6. Rebecca Minkoff Stud Devote Handbag (Shopbop.com)
7. OPI Lincoln Park After Dark (Ulta)
8. Loeffler Randall Matilde Snake-Embossed Boot (Neimanmarcus.com)
9. Trina Turk Sessilee Sweater (Piperlime.com)
