Cobalt Blue & Tangerine

Good morning everyone,

One of my coworkers visited the blog and felt offended that I wrote "Good morning Ladies" to start with the posts. He was like " what about all the male followers who visit the blog on a regular basis? I guess he is right. Although , my main audience is women, I am glad to know that I have the other gender among my followers. Big shout out to you gentlemen!

Back to fashion, I like to mix tangerine to cobalt (royal) blue. I think they look so good together that when I found this paisley cropped pants (although I am not a fan of cropped pants), I felt in love: so many pretty colors to play with: from orange to cobalt and the purple,the pink .... It's almost not legal to put all these pretty shade of colors together. Thoughts?

Stripes & Cropped Cardigan


Happy Hump day,

 If you have been following along for a while now, you should know that I am more on the chic/classy/elegant side so when I found this stripe organza skirt at a bargain price on top of it I did not hesitate a second to decide that it was going home:-). Although it was love at first sight nothing seemed to be good enough to wear with it until my laid my eyes on this very very very old cardigan from F21. I must admit that some pieces from F21 can last forever. By coincidence both the cardigan and the blouse are from F21 (blouse is recent). To play with the nude and black combination, I decided to wear this boxy peach top with black contrast trim. I love the final result: a ladylike outfit and the faux pearl (earings, necklace, pin, bracelets) gave the perfect final touch. Thoughts?

So Long Caché!

Good morning Ladies,

It really saddens me that the Caché brand is gone. They recently closed all the stores including the online shopping website. It seems that they will re-open online only but I am so apprehensive about the outcome. After that I have been so disappointed with the new CWC (Cold Water Creek) online I am curious to see what good will come out of this one.

So as you probably guess (or if you are used to Caché), I am wearing a Caché dress, actually a gift from the hubby about 3 years ago. I really love how this dress fits. It's sexy and classy yet decent enough to wear with a blazer to go to work. A great statement piece from day to night. So long Caché!

Mix&Match: Aztec Print Trouser

 Good morning ladies,

Hope you are having a good weekend. I hope we had more days off. It feels so good sometimes to stay in the comfort of your home with your loved ones...

I really love this trouser but when it has always been a challenge to find something I actually love as much to wear with them. I worn it once with a nice embroidered top and the pictures did not make it. I tried it with a white shirt and I found that it somehow killed the beauty of the pants (lol). I got this embellished sweatshirt on sale for less than $10 at Target and never worn it until
I was looking for something to wear with these pants... I think I like the results better now (SMH). Thoughts?

PLAID From Work to Casual

 
Good morning ladies,

Remember I said how I like a nice plaid shirt (see post here)? Again, I like how they can be easily dressed up or down and the fact that you will always find many options in your closet to go with them. I am particularly in love with this one. It's from Chadwicks however I like the fact that it reminds me of the classic Burberry pattern also the fact that it can be worn with so many pieces in my closet from the black, white, red, beige skinnies, classic pants or skirts.

In today's post I found myself willing to try many options that I am sharing with you here (Unfortunately, I couldn't find my favorite pair of white skinnies but it looks great on white...). Which one you like best?

Classic Tie & Suspender

 
Good day ladies,

You should know by now that I love menswear. It is actually kind of weird that I don't have more posts wearing men clothes (besides this post here). I think that men's clothing look sexy on a woman especially if they belong to the hubby.

Cobalt Blue Pointed Toe Heels

Good morning ladies,

Hope you had a great (long) weekend. Mine is going pretty well.  I am so not ready to go back to work tomorrow. Maybe it's time to get another job. It's pretty scary when  Monday arrives and all you can think of is "Is it Friday yet?" Do you know that feeling? Yeah, It's definitely wrong (SMH)

Well, I like how colorful this blouse is. This is actually a very versatile piece of clothing that can be worn with almost everything.  And the statement of the day: Cobalt Blue Pointed Toe Heels.  I really like the combination. Thoughts?

Blue Paisley & Yellow

 Hello Ladies,

How have you been? I am so happy that the weekend is finally here. I am looking forward to enjoy this long weekend :-) Have you made any plan for the Flag day weekend?

I love paisley, I think I said that before (here) so I was excited to find this one from Chadwick of Boston. I wanted to pair it with white pants but since it is sleeveless and did not want to go for a yellow or a green or a blue blazer, so I used the yellow as bottom with this wide linen pants and picked a white blazer (the shoes are navy blue. I can't wait to have my new camera smh). Overall, I find this look so spring and classy. Thoughts?

Fit & Flare Dress

 
 Good morning ladies,

I like the fit and flare dresses. They are so classy yet elegant and you can easily play with them for different occasions. My mother-in-law gave me this dress as birthday gift along with a nice necklace. While I agree that the fabric looks a little bit weird but that's probably why I like it.  I also like the shape of the upper back along with the gold zipper. As a plus, they also have pockets. I can picture myself wearing this dress to a brunch or to church or simply with a nice nude blazer to go to work. Furthermore, I was lucky enough to find the perfect matching pairs of heels in my closet. I know they look black in the pictures but they are actually the color of a pebble. Thoughts?

Splashes of Color


Good morning Diva,

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was filled of joy, laughter and parties (lol). Happy Mother's day to all my of you who celebrate Mother's Day the second Sunday of May.

This maxi dress was my pick for at a 2pm party (maxi weekend). I had it about 3 years ago and this is actually the second time I am wearing this cutie. The first time was at a 10am wedding (3 years ago). This dress is so much fun!

The Birthday Girl

 
Hello Hello from the Birthday Girl,

Yes, today is my birthday and I feel so blessed by all the love and attention I am getting from the my family especially the hubby and mini "Moumous". I have also received a lot of wonderful gifts from my new Vince Camuto booties (exact) to my beautiful fit and flare H&M dress (similar) and necklace (similar). The long necklace that I am wearing in the pictures is also a b-day gift. I did not make any big plan for the day but I am looking forward to a very quiet evening full of love and laughter.

This is the outfit I worn to run errands. I like maxi skirts and this one is a winner: it is pleated and it has a black waistband which allow me to play with the colors without being too bored with the same color pattern. Thoughts?

First Communion Season

Hello Ladies,

The 1st Communions Season is here along and so is Spring! and  also not to forget that Summer is also right around the corner. I know we all love those outdoor parties where we eat, and eat and eat. Oh ok! we do dance and chat as well. I think that a 1st communion is a christian event that should be celebrated among family and close friends. Again, that's a personal opinion.

The Famous LipStick

Source: here
 Good morning Ladies,

A woman might forget to apply mascara or eye liner, but you will rarely see a woman stepping out of the house without a swipe of her favorite lipstick. There is something about a lipstick that makes it so appealing to women, both old and young. A good lipstick is all that is needed to transform your face and make you look instantly seductive and sexy. There are so many different brands of lipstick available with myriad shades and formulations. It is important to find a lipstick color or shade that suits your skin tone and which looks perfect on you. Many dark-skinned women wrongly think that their options for lipstick shades are limited. There are so many lipstick shades which are suitable for dark-skinned women, that can make them look more attractive.

Shades of Grey

 Hello Ladies,

How are you? As for me, besides the fact that I have had a terrible flu last week, I am now doing ok . I would enjoy staying home for a couple days just to be lazy but I had to go back to work because I had so many things to do and honestly I like to stay busy. By the way, Is it Friday yet? (lol)

Back to fashion, I am not sure how I ended with all these grey in one day, probably because I was in a rush that day (SMH). However, I like the way that the soft pink in the blouse and the necklace have warmed up the outfit a little bit - just right. Thoughts?

April Outfit Recap


Hello Ladies,

Here comes my first monthly recap. I hope you had a good month. Mine was quite busy between work, the blog and my personal life. It's already the second day of May and my birthday is right around the corner. As a gift to myself, I am thinking of making a to-do list for the blog just to make sure I have everything under control. As a new blogger it is important that I keep on improving my blog so it can become the way I've always pictured it to be. If you know me, you would know that I am a perfectionist by default.

 Now back to fashion, what was your favorite look for the month? I think I like every one of them but if I have to pick my top 5, I would go for: the coat dress (as seen here); the polka dots skirt (as seen here), my first boyfriend jeans (as seen here); my overall (as seen here) and the plaid&joggers (as seen here). As a bonus, I also like my "La Rive Gauche Tee (as seen here). What was your favorite (s)?
