Fall and Winter Wish List

Hey Dolls!!

Do you guys feel the need to incorporate new items to your wardrobe as the seasons change?  For me it’s a yes and a no.  I live in a climate that doesn’t have very many seasonal adjustments so I can get away with wearing the same types of clothes longer than most. 

It’s a gift and a curse I tell ya.  LOL!! I love Winter and Fall clothes but don’t get to wear them that often or if I do wear them I don’t get much use out of them because I live in Central Florida.  That causes me to carefully consider the items I do purchase that I know I won’t get much use out of, especially trendy ones. 

Nonetheless, a girl still has her shopping desires and several Wish Lists on deck, right?  So here is mine Dolls. 
 
These are my specific wants to incorporate into my wardrobe for this Fall and Winter season.  They are on trend, reasonably priced and appropriate for the climate I live in.  

1.    Anorak Vest
5.    Denim Overalls
8.    Purple Lipstick
11.  Black Military Jacket

So far I have purchased the Kitty Kat Ears Derby Bowler (two  them, one red and one black) and the Denim Overalls (from a local Vintage Boutique for $22...SCORE!), so I'm not even close to being finished.  
 
So Dolls, tell me have you began to tackle your personal Fall and Winter Wardrobe Wish List items?  What kinds of items have you purchased so far?

TLC is FOREVER!!!!

Hey Dolls!!
I have wanted to do this post for a while and now with all of my excitement and anticipation of the upcoming biopic Crazy Sexy Cool:  The TLC Story, I couldn’t resist.  If you don’t know, now you know TLC is my favorite group of all time.  I was so TLC obsessed when I was growing up.  I, probably like many other girls who are now adult women used to rehearse and practice with my friends each and every TLC routine we could get our hands on.  We would do it literally like EVERYDAY!!!  Yes we would, LOL!!


In case you’re wondering which member of the group I was, I was Left Eye.  Just something about her spoke to me from the moment I saw the Ain’t Too Proud to Beg video up to her untimely death.  There was nothing you could tell me about Left Eye and she really could do no wrong in my eyes.  I just love this picture of her, Its my FAVORITE!!!
With all the media coverage surrounding the upcoming biopic, I have become nostalgic again about my favorite group and its just crazy how at the time, I had no idea how many barriers they broke in the music industry, for women, being brave enough to promote safe sex in a realistic manner, and of course fashion.  I mean in comparison to how things are today in entertainment, it makes the things that people criticized them for seem so small.  So, TLC is owed a lot of props for making things easier and acceptable for a lot of today’s top performers...You're WELCOME!
 
Now, I don’t know about you Dolls but TLC also heavily influenced my Fashion Sense.  I thought all their looks were so FLY and I love how they reinvented themselves with each CD release each time being edgier than the last.   

For me it didn’t just stop at the clothes, I wanted to get tattoos and the above the eye piercing, but my Mama shut that one down for real, LOL!!  Ah well.  Now, I tried to narrow the pictures down that I selected to Celebrate TLC with but there are so many that I love and I just can’t help myself.  So enjoy all of the pictures of TLC through the years.

I’m trying to prepare myself for this movie.  I just want my girls to be portrayed properly.  I can’t wait to see it, but I can’t lie I will be a very harsh critic because I have been a student of TLC since they popped up on the scene.  So I know all the dance moves from the music videos and live performances and interviews and I will know if it’s not done right.  With that being said, will you all be tuned in…You know I will?  LOL!!  TLC is FOREVER!!!! 

Here are some of the pictures from the movie, they have done a good job recreating some of TLC's looks from back in the day:
I will be tuned in on the edge of my seat!!
