The Perfect Little Black Dress

How many black dresses do you currently have in your closet ? I can't begin to guess how many I own but when you find a perfect black dress that is so versatile and you find it at an awesome price how can you not add it to your wardrobe?

 I was found this LBD at Kohl's I love the simplicity of this dress and the fabric quality and not to mention the 3/4 sleeves which is perfect for any woman that is unhappy with her arms.   I decided to keep my look very simple with this dress but I could really .  I added to my J-Lo necklace from Kohl's to give it a little bit of Diva .  The styling options with this dress are endless and I know this will go into heavy rotation .

Special Day calls for a Pretty Skirt

Today was a very special day for my family . My son was baptized today at church and started his new life of sanctification . I was extremely proud of him expressing his desire to be baptized . As I sat in the pew watching my not so baby boy taking steps into manhood I was overcome with emotions . I look forward to watching him make more decisions in life and grow into the best man he can be.

For this special occasion I just knew that I just had to wear this fabulous skirt that I got in NYC at my very first trunk sale .  I was recently selected to be a Jcpenney Muse and I was in New York for special shoot.. It was such and honor and privilege . I will post a blog post soon with all the wonderful details.  

When I first walked in to this Trina Turk trunk sale my eyes were immediately drawn to the beautiful pattern on this skirt. This was one of those moments in my life where I felt like a kid in a candy store . When I tried this baby on I knew immediately that this skirt was coming back to Indiana with me. I decided to style this my simple Worthington button down and gorgeous floral statement necklace from +JCPenney  and my Sunday best look was born.  

I hope all you fabulous fashionist's have an wonderful week.

Bright, Bold and Sassy

Happy Friday my friends we made it can you believe it? My Mom always says when you wish for the weekend your are wishing your life away well that's easy for her to say she is happily retired... LOL  Deep down I know she is right like always.. 

As you know I am normally a dress girl but these pants make me so happy ! The colors and had me at  Hello but the fit is what really sealed the deal. If you are a pear shaped girl than you understand my dilemma when shopping for pants . To get them to fit in the butt they are almost always to big in the waist but these pixie pants from +Old Navy are perfect and they were on clearance.. and you fashionista's know that "Clearance " is my favorite word.  I decided to add my Ruff Hewn jacket that scored from Carson's ( also on clearance )added my Bright Orange bag from +JCPenney  and my Bright , Bold and Sassy look was born!  Have you ladies tried these pixie pants from Old Navy? If not you really should so many patterns.. so much cuteness at an awesome price!

My Black and White Frugal Find

On the weekend you find me checking my email trying to decide if or where I will go to shop. Now my sister and I always have a plan. .Girls with a plan can sometimes be dangerous but in our case our plans save money.. LOL . When I saw that NY and Company were giving out free gift cards that could be valued at up to $100... honey I had my Mom , Sisters and Niece out there scoring coupons now we most of us only got a $5 giftcard all except my Mom got $10 .. the nerve of her taking my giftcard giftcard. . Now what can $5 buy well in me and my sisters case were found this faux wrap dress in black and white for $15 and used the giftcard and ended up paying $10 !! I just love this style because it is flattering on all body types. My sister and I are built totally different except for the curls of course and he both really loved this dress . I first thought about added a pop of color but instead opted to keep everything classic black and white. What about you ladies are in love with the wrap style dress?

Frugal Finds - Dress Love

Easter weekend was not only just for celebration it was the weekend to find some super cute dresses at awesome prices. What started as a shopping trip to find my mother an outfit for Easter Sunday ended up being a major score for me and my fellow shopaholic sister . I was lucky enough to score 3 dresses for $35 now how sweet is that deal? The first dress that I wanted to highlight was this classic shirt dress by Liz Claiborne at you guessed it Jcpenney.  I love the simplicity of this dress and the gold buttons gave it just a little bit of flash that I just love . With the chic feel  of this dress I felt these diva like J-Lo shoes from Kohl's would be a perfect combo and I added a little pop of orange with this gorgeous Call it Spring bag !  What awesome finds did you fashionista's stumble across.. inquiring minds(nosey) would love to know .

Stay tuned for other frugal finds throughout the week!

Easter Sunday with Family

There is nothing like spending time with family during the holidays. It really makes you focus on what really is important.  It is easy to get busy with life and finding yourself not spending quality time with your loved ones.   It is those holidays that help you get reconnected with your loved ones and what better day than to celebrate Jesus dying on the cross to save our sins. 

Growing up I used to love Easter going to church in a new dress, hat and gloves and for a girly girl like me that was pure heaven . When young we didn't have a lot of money but I always remember getting an Easter dress weather my Mom made it our my Aunt and Uncle bought it for me. I think that is when my slight obsession with dresses started.. LOL.  I decided to be a little more casual no hat or gloves but just a fabulous skirt that I picked up from Jcpenney .  When I saw this skirt in the store I was instantly obsessed with it. It is by MNG and the material quality is awesome and it fit this pear shape body just fine.  I decided to wear this with a classic white top and gorgeous statement also from Jcpenney . I ended up adding my lace up Rock and Republic sandals to give it a slight edge.

I hope all you fabulous Fashionista's had a fantastic Easter!
