My parents just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary this past May and we celebrated their anniversary with a wedding renewal and a party with close family and friends. I cant begin to tell you the headache I got trying to find the perfect dress for that day. My mom and I were cleaning one day and she pulls of a gorgeous dress and shows it to me..She then goes to explain how this dress was the very dress my dad surprised her with one week before she was to go meet his mother for the very first time before they married. It was like fireworks exploded because I knew I had to wear this dress for the wedding renewal. The very next day I sneaked into my moms closet, took the dress and tried it on..O.K. My mom was very petite lol but I was determined as ever to get this dress to fit so I ate right, exercised and one month later the dress fit!
A week before the actual renewal I really wanted to do a pin up look with the dress which I did and I wanted to get some fabulous shoes..In one day I went to 3 malls in 3 boroughs looking for the perfect shoes and I did in Forever21, a pair of colbalt blue open toe heels. The day of the renewal I got ready and called my mom to my bedroom and showed her my outfit, My mother was in tears and was so happy. I was so excited to have done this for her..To think I had on a 50 year old dress that belonged to my mom before my parents were married!
Here is the photo of me wearing the dress the day of the renewal.

Happy New Year! Here is my very first blog post of 2012 and I wanted to share my outfit that I wore to receive 2012 with open arms.
Lets start with the Blazer which was a basic black blazer from Zaras, underneath that I wore a beige shirt from 5.7.9 and the tights which were really funky had little faux leather patches on them and finally the shoes...Ahh the beautiful shoes lol..They are the gold glitter pumps from Steve Madden which I love so so much!
Accessories were some gold hoops, A gold Fleur Di Lis Necklace which was a gift from my boyfriend and a turquoise Fleur Di Lis Bracelet from Supergirllushes Minerals. I wanted a classy look with a bit of a twist which is why I just loved these tights..it gave it such an unexpected turn to a classic suit look.
May you all have a blessed 2012 and may wishes come true and fashion love grow! <3

Happy Holidays Everyone! This past weekend was Christmas Eve and Christmas day and I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family. Here is what I was wearing for the festivities lol. My red/burgendy sweater was purchased at Lucky 21 which is a store that is near my house. They have so many amazing clothes there and I am usually in there for all things fashion. My long black earrings were also purchased at Lucky 21 as well, being that these earrings were so long I decided to wear my hair up in a very messy bun which actually worked and loved the way it came out! I wore regular blue denim jeans and the boots I have on are also from Lucky 21 they were actually a early Christmas gift from my parents..I LOVE them and the way they look on me lol..I call them my Kardashian boots because Kim is known to wear boots like these alot.
I just realized that while writing this post that my entire outfit came from Lucky 21 New York lol.. I did purchase everything myself and the boots were gifted to me by my parents just to get that out there. I really enjoyed myself this weekend and I hope you did too.
If you live in the New York City Area please check out Lucky 21 New York Facebook Page Here
Happy Holidays to you and your family! Stay tuned for a New Years Eve Outfit Post coming next week!! XOXO

This year I was contemplating for a long time what I wanted to be for Halloween and for some reason it's one of the toughest decisions a person has to make especially for me. I asked my hubby for some advice so we went to a Army Navy store and purchased some patches he wanted to get and then all of a sudden.."Ding Ding" I got the perfect idea..why not be "Maverick" from Top Gun.
I know its not sexy and very unlike a female to dress up so casual but I thought it would be cool..so I brought a army green flight suit and some patches and a pin. I wanted to make this look as official as can be..The only downer was the aviator glasses which I didn't get and opted for goggles instead which I didn't even get to wear cause it was going to mess up my hair lol.
Although my plans were changed I still went out with my sister and had a good time..The pics are posted above I hope you like it. Please leave your thoughts below :)

A few weeks ago "Jeanette's Closet" sent me a gift and I was really surprised because I wasn't expecting anything in the mail. When I opened the package I had found this beautiful black one shoulder dress with a knitted sleeve. When I tried it on if was just perfect and comfortable and can totally see myself wearing this dress for New Years Eve with just the right blinged out accessories.
The next item I found was a beautiful vintage owl necklace, which I love because owl jewelry is so in right now and you can basically wear it with a nice crisp button down blouse with some jeans and heels or a spectacular dress..you can wear it to work or a day out with the girls.
The next and final item in my package was a beautiful pink dog tag that says "I fight like a girl" which was made for breast cancer awareness month. As you can see in the photos above its really feminine and "PINK" I love it so much especially that it came with a Breast Cancer Awareness Pin.
Thank you so much to Jeanettes Closet for the lovely gift..I cant wait to show off the dress. The pictures were taken by my mommy and she was making "Ohhhh Sexy" noices lol...

Hey Dolls! So Halloween is upon us soon actually in just a few weeks and I know I am excited since I am attending one of my good friends Halloween Bash. Last year she threw the same party and my costume was of Kim Karda-She-Aint lol.
I love Kim Kardashian and I really wanted to be something pretty yet still be warm since the party was outdoors. The Jacket Im wearing was a gift from my mother in law its a Ralph Lauren Ruffled Jacket in Black Suede, The Shirt was a brownish jeweled blouse that I purchased at 579 for about $5.99 and the pants were my liquid leggings that I wore below at the MBFW! Lets talk about the shoes..lol..I love these shoes and they are so comfortable..I brought these at PAYLESS by Christian Siriano..these was his first collection he did when he joined the designer by Payless stage..The shoes are black with gold sparkle glitter all over the heel..these were $39.99.
I do have a faux booty lol..It was a padded underwear which I brought for the party only I do not wear this on the regular lol and I padded it some more with fabric. I really hope you enjoyed this post as to what I was last year for Halloween. I don't mind being inspired by a celebrity but the best thing about this costume was I could wear it over and over again to any occasion since it was regular clothing.
Have a fabulous Halloween and I cant wait to hear what you all will be in the next few weeks..I cant wait to share with you my costume for this year!
