Fashionable Classic

Hey Dolls!!

Are you a fan of "American Classics", Fashionable American Classics that is.  In my mind, Ralph Lauren definitely a "Fashionable American Classic."  I recently watched a documentary about how Ralph Lauren built his empire and it was nothing short inspiring.  Fashion is all about owning who you are, taking risks along the way, and turning that into magic.  
This Ralph Lauren Blazer that I'm wearing is a piece that will be in my closet FOREVER, I'm not joking Dolls!  This is one of those pieces that will stand the test of time and will NEVER go out of style.  Before I actually found it, I had been looking for one quite some time, so when I spotted this baby at my local TJMaxx I couldn't leave the store without it.  
What I'm Wearing:  Ralph Lauren Blazer/Liz Claiborne Blouse/Ann Taylor Trousers/Dolce Vita Pumps/Beauty Supply Earrings/Ring via Burlington Coat Factory/Forever 21 Necklace/Phillip Lim for Target Bag
So Dolls, I want to know what pieces you consider to be Fashionable American Classics and how you incorporate them into your wardrobe.  I know this Blazer is something that I can rock in so many ways forever and ever.  I must say that is one of the things that make it so great.  I for one am a big fan of mixing classics with trendy items o give them new life.  So get used to this Ralph Lauren Blazer cause its here to stay.

Layering Paisley

Hey Dolls!!

So I am happy to report that Tampa has cooled off just a bit,  and you know for me that makes me a happy fashionista!  I mean it's not totally cool, but the weather has allowed me to pull a few more things out of the closet.  Today I'm sporting this adorable paisley printed jacket I found last year while thrifting.   I definitely feel like I can get quite a bit of use out of this piece here so I had to have it. 
What I'm Wearing: Thrifted Coat/White House Black Market Blouse/Target Pants & Earrings/Ring (old)/Forever 21 Sandals/Rafe New York Bag
What I love about this coat is its versatility.  This coat is very lightweight which makes it a wonderful layering piece. With layering, the opportunities to reinvent this piece are plentiful.  I'm excited! 

Well,  that's it for today Dolls, I'd love to hear what pieces you are looking forward to layering this Fall.  Let me know.

Summer in November

Hey Dolls!!

I know it has been quite sometime since I have blogged, and I’m happy to be finally back at it Dolls! 
Currently here in Tampa we are having some record breaking temperatures for this time of year.  Of all my years of living in this city I have never experienced nearly 100 degree weather in the month of
November.  No joke, it was 96 degrees this weekend.  So not only does that create a roadblock for me wearing some Fall looks, it’s just extremely HOT in general to even go outdoors and take pictures of my OOTD’s period.
As I keep up with the Fashion Industry and definitely the trends, I feel so weird posting pictures in my Spring/Summer clothes when the majority of the country is knee deep in Fabulous Fall attire.  In due time, I will hopefully be able to join you guys.  However for now, I hope you can enjoy my “off season” fashion cause baby it’s HOT outside!
What I'm Wearing:  Forever 21 Fedora/H&M Shirt (boy's section)/J.Crew Shorts (thrifted)/G.H. Bass Oxfords/Rocawear Sunnies/Forever 21 & Juicy Couture Necklaces/Thrifted Earrings & Bracelet/Random Ring
Happy November Dolls!!

Hey Dolls!!

Today I'm rocking what has to be my favorite and most treasured T-Shirt.  For a while now, I've been seeing these types of shirts via my various social media accounts.  The ones I've seen have been in celebration of celebrity and historical figures and I always thought they were cool.  Then the idea popped in my head to create one that means something special to me. 
I don't know if I've shared with you all before that I come from a huge family.  My Mother is one of 10 children and my Father is one of 13 and I grew up with them all!  For months now, I have been thinking,  I should make a shirt like this in tribute to some important people in my life.  I mean I love the celebrity inspired T-shirts and all but I'm much bigger on MY family.
Sadly,  I lost my oldest Auntie on my Mother's side on Monday night to Colon Cancer and I wanted to give her a special tribute and support them as well.  So alas, I finally got my shirt made and it came out beautifully.   I LOVE it! It was a hit among the family as well,  so many of my cousins want one.  I'm so excited to create more for my remaining Aunts and Uncles on both sides of my family.
What I'm Wearing:  Hanes T-Shirt personalized at "Big Frog"/Harmony+Havoc Jeans/Forever 21 Shoes/Random Bracelets/Burlington Coat Factory Earrings/Private Eye Sunnies

Bright White Couture

Hey Dolls!!

As you read in my last outfit of the day post, I was stressing the no white after Labor Day (old school) fashion rule.  So here I am again IN WHITE!!!  This look is one of those easy ones that you can just throw on for a casual day doing whatever you please.  I scored this tee from my local Juicy Couture before they went out of business last year and I so wish I would have gotten more than the two I actually purchased.  Because Couture is FOREVER, right? Paired it easily with this white skirt and my favorite red sandals of the moment and there you have it.

What I'm Wearing: Juicy Couture Tee/Painted Threads Skirt/Lucite Bangles via Marshall's/Steve Madden Sandals/Versona Accessories Earrings/Private Eye Specs
