A new scarf & some closet cleaning

Had a mini artist date to Pier 1 imports and found a few things but before I did that I cleaned out my closet and what it mess it was. It's all ready for Spring! I have 3 trash bags full of clothes that I need to get rid of so my next task is to photograph and post them for sale and see what happens.

half of my closet!

New Scarf from Pier 1 Imports love it silk black white and blue w/purple loving it!

Love this piece of art work, I find it inspirational.
I could roam that store for hours trying out every chair and looking over every dish and smelling every candle and wearing all the scarfs. Thinking about 2 more scarfs but have to consider my budget since my next purchase will be black cons low top and a black pencil skirt then a jeweled sweater and statement pearl necklace. I have a style plan for Spring.

It's Friday so that means time for my Favorite 5 of the moments.
Zip Around Bag Mark, Hammered Hoop Earrings Avon, It's a long story dress future Mark ( I also long the Link Bracelet) 

2 Camp Shirts I found at Wal-Mart for $7.00 each, can't be better then that I envision these with Khaki Green cargo short shorts and an espadrille.
These are my current Friday5, loving the purse can't wait till it arrives same with the earrings. The dress is a future purchase depending on my sales. I got the shirts for spring and of course since I live in Syracuse NY it's still winter here so no short sleeves yet too cold for that. Happy weekend everyone!

Refusing to live w/bad decor! and a couple of outfits.

what I wore to the Crunch game saturday my Crunch pseudo football style jersey and black old navy trousers I didn't include my shoes or jacket. I love my t-shirt

Okay so this past Friday was my 44th Birthday and to celebrate I had a Happy Birthday/Tupperware party. It was great, had a great turn out and a fantastic time. I love having people over! Of course in the process of having company or throwing a party there is prep work. You clean your house and get all the food, running to the market, the usual running around.

Me of course the food is not so important. Don't get me wrong I love food but I don't enjoy preparing food or menu planning. I'm thinking about my home, the appearance of my home. I want people to feel comfortable but more then that I want people to say WOW!! It's the stylist in me. So here I am the morning of my party and my BF says I'll clean the house you go to the store and do errands so you don't stress. He is great! So I'm looking at my home and thinking that bathroom has to go. It is just wrong. My dear BF had put it together himself before I was ever in the picture. See the photo above. The shower curtain is not my taste and the dark blue rugs and towels don't go w/the tile and cabinet or the shower curtain. Of course my BF is a man and likes dark colors and matching is not a concern to him. So as I'm in Wal-mart picking up pineapple rings and cheese and crackers. I think I'm changing the bathroom I'm sure I can find something acceptable. $40.00 dollars later here it is.

So yes Wal-Mart Acorn and Organic Green towels and same colors in my striped shower curtain and the acorn rugs. The pictures are old shell canvas's from Home Interiors. I love it!! Home decorating is one of my favorite things, sometimes I think I get it just right.

Here is my Birthday outfit before I styled my hair. I've only worn it once before and now it's a little big so it will be going off to the consignment.

Lane Bryant dress from 2years ago it's really a tunic, black opaque tights and black boots. 
Oh and I really wanted to share the Hat trick Saturday night at the Crunch hockey game by Kyle Palmieri. Congratulations it was so great to see that. My favorite part was seeing the hat's being thrown onto the ice. Great job CRUNCH!!

Okay my lipstick needs a reapplication but here I am I saw Issac Mizrahi talk about how he loves the scarf wrapped over the hair and I actually agree. I'm glad I'm back to posting. I do love fashion and styling. Now if only I had a shopping buddy I'd be set. Anyone reading in Syracuse area? Anyone?

It's been a while.... A long while.

I know it's been a long time since my last post over a month. I have really not been paying attention to my clothes or to fashion for that matter. I know it seems crazy and a few days I had some pretty awesome outfits but I never got around to taking a photo. I guess you could say my attention has been elsewhere. I have in the past 2 months started a few businesses that I had no idea I was going to do just 3months ago. I now have a cleaning business, I sell Avon and a travel business and photography. I just needed to make some extra cash and thought what can I do and it all came flooding to me. So yeah I've been a little preoccupied.

So here I am in my OOTD, my Old Navy dress, I got it on clearance at the Waterloo Outlets it wasn't a huge savings $22 instead of $29 but it's cute denim and I like it. I think it's very me as soon as I saw it I knew this was me and how I would style it. I am wearing my brown leather DSW boots and cream fishnet tights I got at the Avenue about 3years ago, I am wearing my LB cream colored camisole under and I have my big Turquiose bracelet and cross. Those two pieces are my most favorite jewelry next to my aunts ring.  Off to the casino buffet with my BF work friends I go. It's snowing outside so now I have to think about my coat and scarf. Holy Cow maybe I should wear pants...I'm glad I'm back.
