Velvet Rider

Hey Dolls!!

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!  Mine was very uneventful and that was cool with me.  I feel like I have been ripping and running all year long.  So far, November has been my most relaxing month of the year, LOL!!!  Well that is until I head home to St. Louis for Thanksgiving (my FAVORITE holiday).  I know I won’t get any down time while I’m there but that’s cool.  I’m excited for this trip.  I haven’t been home in awhile and I can’t wait to eat some of my Mama’s food!!! 

The start of my relaxing "Low-Key" Weekend began with me checking out what was happening on Twitter on Friday night and saw a tweet from @OloriSWANK saying that she’d added new items to her online shop.  Being a LOVER of her style, I had to go and check em’ out.  Naturally, I saw multiple items that I wanted and I went to add some things to my cart and my PayPal account was giving me problems. UGH!!  So I tweeted that back and she let me know there was an option to purchase without PayPal. 

I was excited, but somebody was holding the items in their cart that I wanted, so I had the sad face.  Then Olori tweeted me back that the user didn’t buy the item and if I wanted it to purchase NOW!!!  And that’s exactly what I did.  I am now the proud owner of this Vintage St. John Sweater Dress!  I LOVE this dress and I’m so excited for the arrival.  St. John is one of those brands that makes pieces that will be wearable FOREVER.  So this was a very worthwhile purchase.  I made some folks on Twitter MAD with this purchase too, LOL!!  It was a very "HOT" item.  I’m so glad I joined Twitter!  If you guys don’t know about Olori SWANK check her blog out here!  Her style is so fly and out of the box!  

What I’m Wearing:
Blazer:  Express (Thrifted)
Shirt:  H&M
Leggings, Earrings & Necklaces:  Forever21
Ring:  Flea Market
Bracelets:  Random
Boots:  Target
Meanwhile, check me out in my Velvet Leggings!  I have to say, these were a pleasant surprise.  They are super comfy and the velvet texture provides something extra to just wearing plain old leggings.  I found these last year at Forever 21 on the clearance rack for just $2.99!  When I first saw them, I thought...interesting.  What can I wear with these?  You can wear them with whatever you want!  I have another pair in purple that I wore in my very first blog post.  Check it out here

Oh and before I forget, I also took the time to create a Facebook Page for the Blog.  Be sure to go and “Like” the page!
