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)
Leggings, Earrings & Necklaces: Forever21
Ring: Flea Market
Boots: TargetMeanwhile, 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!
