Friday5 : Five things I love in my closet right now!


#1 Literally #1 my QVC Joan River's New Classic Trench Coat, Yes I said QVC and joan rivers. I am not a closet QVCer I wear it loud and proud and baby when I am sporting this you will know why. If you call yourself a fashionista and are a true fashionista then you have to admit Joan Rivers really knows her shizzle about clothes and style. If you are shaking your head no do your homework whatever you may think about her, her comedy look at the clothes and she is spot on every time, that Girl can dress.

Did I show you the back? The lining is leapord and the buttons tortoise

STUNNING!!! okay here I am in the coat, yes it's pulling a little on the bottom but I ordered a 1X wishful thinking but I'm not returning it and I think it looks pretty good oh and the sunnies are #2
#2 The Sunnies again Joan Rivers Casual Elegance crystal embellished sunglasses again QVC I love these totally hot Joan called the look RICH BITCH and I agree it's a look I truly enjoy cultivating must straighten my hair and get my makeup done if I really want to pull it off. 

I have 3 pairs for the fall but these are my favs.

#3 Long sleeve tees from Lane Bryant I love long sleeves and these fit right in for fall under a military jacket or furry vest and sweater vest or to dress down my trench. I can wear them the leggings, jeggings, skinny jeans or wide leg trousers. love them!!

I am still a label snob so yeah I got the DKNY and the SEVEN7 also thinking w/my black uggs. The possibilities are endless.

#4 Baby Doll Top from Rainbow Shops, have I mentioned Rainbow seriously they down have them in SoCal they are a fabulous find if you are looking for club attire cheap and some other things thrown in. I got like 6 t-shirts for 28 bucks okay mind you this place is a little ghetto fab and shaniquia might be on the mobile for all to hear either yelling at her man or her worker but hey it's just part of the atmosphere enjoy the clothes that's why we are here. 
okay the photo does not do this top justice it's a black chambray and I already wore it w/black leggings and my brown boots (remember it's okay to mix black and brown now) and a cami underneath. My son actually said wow mom you look really nice today. Okay seriously that hardly ever happens so guess what outfit I will probably wear till it falls off of me. You got it this one. I'll have to post a pic. Seriously this top is cute!

#5  Terry Tie Jacket by DKNY JEANS at Lane Bryant here's the link Terry tie jacket by DKNY Jeans
 The LB photo doesn't do it justice 
of course I picked the olive green color, remember olive is my new black or at least this season It matches my suede boots perfectly. 
Yeah I know not the most flattering stance and taking my hands out of my pockets would make a leaner line but hey this jacket rocks it has perfectly placed pockets looks better on and feels like your softest sweatshirt. 

MY FRIDAY5, hope you enjoy.

Weekly Fashion Intention: Spend less

Okay lets face it, I have a lot of clothes and not just yeah girls have a lot of clothes no I'm talking 2 closets worth a couple of boxes and bags and then donating clothes on such a regular basis my Goodwill guy knows me by name. It's a lot, but that is not the point the point is that as new updated styles come up I find myself spending on a regular basis so I decided to take  queue from my other blog and set a weekly intention here. I will spend less this week! Lets see how it goes.

what's going on? It's Fashion week in NYC have you the mean time.

I stroll thru my local source of fashion the Carousel Mall and as predicted by all the runways, magazines and bloggers and twitters. It's all about the boot.
DSW shoes yes Lily there is a Santa Claus and he shops the boot section it's so beautiful I think I got a tear!!
& since I was there I thought I'd browse where else since I'm on a budget the clearance....
aren't these just gorgeous......

and these too. Seriously loving both, both peep toes both have a platform and both are completely essential to my shoe wardrobe both looked great on so well just time will tell because I seriously need a nude pump well because and a patent black also cause duh...doesn't every woman need both. I didn't actually purchase either I'm still thinking because I have to deduce in my head how many wears will I get out of them now that I am a house goddess and stay home fashion maven. Moving on.....I don't really want to talk about celeb's here but I was reading thru my US magazine I was taken by a few things 1st one is this

Really? they are too big for sample sizes but seriously I can see that because size 0 or 2 is tiny like my arm but these women still aren't large by any means. The next one was this.

Sorry its' sideways but doesn't Kelly Osbourne look great especially in the Pussycat dolls hair. I mean WOW Kelly!

Fashion Week and a very special invite!!

Okay I've been away from my blog for about a week, I attended the AAHLBCC this past weekend in Binghamton NY. One of the funnest weekends of my life. Pictured above is our group from Syracuse after the dinner. Okay so what is your opinion of the dress?

 My son's opinion was I don't like it. My guys opinion was it's nice you look fine. Seriously I need feedback. Is it a wear again? Okay deets on it. This is my bargain dressy outfit seriously the most expensive part of the outfit is the shrug. Dress from Fashion Bug on sale $19.99 shoe's JC Penney $24.95 and shrug from Lane Bryant was $34.50

Oh my big special invite was to attend a show taping w/an audience of bloggers!!! OMG really that is so awesome. I sent in my RSVP and if I did it in time I maybe there in the audience next Tuesday. THANK YOU, @moggitgirls.

Olive is my new Black

I realized as I bought these sunglasses Olive Green by Guess at Marshalls that this summer and coming fall Olive appears to be my new Black. Then as I gaze at my latest Vogue and Allure, Glamour and O I realize that duh Military Army green is the color of the season which makes me think. Right on called it again last winter I bought both my tote bags and my ballet flats and sported my army jacket all spring long. Yes it does feel good to be right. Well at least in matters of fashion lets see how this plays out though. I'll enjoy the right for about the 2 seconds that it's true. As we all know tomorrow everything changes in the world of fashion I might still be wearing purple and gray again and have to start over.

In the picture left to right tote bag, boots and jacket w/ruffle from Target of course. Jacket is pure energy wedge strappy sandles w/espadrille heel jcpenney 2nd tote bag Grando tote by xochico cardi by Lane Bryant last but not least my flats by Privo's.
