A Night to Remember 

Well hey there! Hope you are doing well. I’m doing just fine myself. It’s been some time since we last spoke and I want to get back in the game, so why not do so with a great story that involves some great fashion. 
So this all began a few days ago when I received some exciting news via email. The music steaming service that I’m subscribed to, Tidal, informed me that I had won tickets to see Rihanna!! I had completely forgot that I had registered for her show in Cincinnati, so it took me by complete surprise. I made plans with my best friend and we just couldn’t wait until Saturday came. 
Now of course I immediately started thinking of what to wear but due to the excitement and some stress from work, I couldn’t think of anything. I had an idea but still couldn’t decide as I threw several pieces in my suitcase the day of the show. 
It wasn’t until we started getting ready at the hotel that I decided on this number. Not bad for last minute. 
 

The ensemble consisted of a black turtleneck and black skirt that I’ve purchased from H&M before. I wanted something that didn’t require a lot of effort but still got the job done, and I think this outfit did just that.

  
So now for the best part. We made it to the venue and our seats were great! However, during a pizza run, this wonderful, magnificent gentleman asked us where we were sitting and pulled out a stack of tickets. He hand us two front row tickets and we couldn’t believe it!!
After several hundred thank you’s, we ran to our seats to grab our jackets and ran to our new seats. I couldn’t believe she was going to be right there, in front of us the whole time. We were in perfect position to see all the fashion that Rihanna would provide and let me tell you, she did that!! It was great to see the details and craftsmanship that went into her costumes. 

  

Slay. 

  
  SLAY. 

  
SLAAAYYYYYY!!!!

It was a night that I, most certainly, won’t forget. Thank you for letting me share. I’ll see you guys next time. Deuces!!!

LBD: Look 1

They always say, “you can never have too many pairs of jeans.” Well you know what else you can’t have too much of? A little black dress. It’s just as simple, always looks great and it can be just diverse as your favorite pair of jeans.

I’d like to start a special series within this blog dedicated to our beloved LBD’s. I noticed that I have plenty myself so I’d like to share the many ways that I wear them.

I wore this little number from Forever21 a few weeks ago at a black & gold themed party. I like the long sleeves and if the lighting wasn’t so bad you could see the detail of the asymmetrical point in the front. I paired it with a gold link necklace and my favorite black and gold Coach watch. The looks was completed with black suede Jennifer Lopez heels that I purchased from Khol’s a few years ago.

Forever21 no longer has this dress available, but you can purchase a similar LBD here.

Well that’s the look for now. Deuces!!

One more time.

Greetings everyone!! Ok, I know…I’m late. I’m waaay late. But it’s cool, right? Well let’s just get back into it before the calendar changes…well for my timezone at least.

So, before I get into a regular pattern for this blog, I want to discuss 2 more subjects that I’ll be covering from time to time. Now I can’t really call myself a fashionista because I consider them experts and I’m far from that. But I do appreciate a great outfit either from myself or others, and I love to play with fashion. I was told sometime ago that I should work on creating my signature style because apparently I know a thing or two and I think this blog will help me do so. Well, I do take pride in the combinations that create given my size. But really it’s not that difficult now because there are more choices for the full figured lady.

So as I’ve said, I like to play around with my fashion and plan on sharing it with you all. Now please enjoy some of my best looks from the past.

Also, nothing makes me feel more relaxed than a good mani/pedi. I love this whole gel movement and I’ve just learned that I can possibly have nail art with gel polish. So just like the other subjects I’ve mentioned, I’ll be sharing my fancy nails with you all as well. Now unfortunately, I do not know the names or brands of the colors that I have in this picture. So at this time I’ll refer to the pink polish as #75 and the red as #77. Sorry but at least I know which number to request when I go to the salon. But I will work on providing the full details in the future.
