{Rock} Shopping My Closet & Adding Spring Touches

I have been seeing so many posts about how we all are dying for Spring to get here and I thought, "What are we waiting for? Spring isn't guaranteed to be all that warm and with the way the weather has been, who knows when it will actually arrive?"

So I am rummaging thru my closet & storage & pulling out pieces that I have had FOREVER (lots never worn) & new Spring pieces that I have gotten and rocking them NOW, starting with this moto jacket!

Crop Top: Forever21+ | Skirt: Iman sold out | Booties: Seychelles Theory | Bag: Deux Lux (I need it in this coral!!) Necklace/Earrings: Closet Fete Nail Wrap Bracelet: Nico New York & (similar w/crystals)


{Fab Five} + A Few Things From The Weekend

Sweet Sunday morning lovelies!

Lots of open items on my to do this list & I am grateful that I am starting to feel like myself again & actually beginning to get things done. After working out, today will be spent mainly putting in some overdue work on projects.

I am so ready for Spring & I have been working to bring some really pretty pieces to Closet Fete. This necklace set & stud drop earrings are just a couple of items. I hope you will love them as much as I do {and will buy them} ;).


{Rock} Vintage Black Valentine's Day Style

I love the color pink but I don't wear it often. Here is the last time I had it on on the blog. I also LOVE the color red. To me it is the ultimate power color. Bold, sexy and can't be missed. Perfect.

Coat: Vintage (last seen here) | Dress & Belt: ASOS Curve | Sunnies: ZeroUV
Shoes: Fergalicious (here in 4 colors) (on sale in red) | Necklace/Earrings: Closet Fete Nail Wrap Bracelet: Nico New York

But this year I wanted to go against the grain a bit and NOT wear either of those colors in big doses for Valentine's day, just a lil red lippie (MAC RiRi Woo) and a gorgeous pink stone necklace.


{Fun} Twitterversary Giveaway

It's no secret that Twitter is my social media drug of choice and Twopcharts 
tweeted me that today is my 5th year twitterversary! My how time flies.

I am currently getting a lot of fabulous pieces in for Spring for Closet Fete, so I thought why not celebrate my twitter obsession with a giveaway.

The piece that I am giving away, the Crystal Drops Necklace is seriously AWESOME!


{OOTD} My #Plussize Casual Style: Floral + Fuchsia

I am not sure what it is about this floral jacket but lately when I reach for it, I instantly want to pair it with fuchsia or pink as last seen here.

Saturday, Joe and I went to see Man of Steel,which was kinda slow at moments but good overall.

I wore the jacket with a super bright yellow tank, my new great white shorts that are not too short and not too long, my fab bow flats, one of my favorite bags and bling from Closet Fete.
