Sunday’s Best: Horizontally Worn Dress

Poncho: Vintage // Bag: JustFab // Dress: MMM x H&M // Shoes: Zara

Among all the weird clothes I buy, I must say I’m most proud of this dress. When I saw this Maison Martin Margiela dress at H&M, I was very confused to say the least. Because of it’s intricacy I was curious to see how it would look on me. I googled the name of the dress and saw it on a model. My mental response, “WOW! I need this!” If I could explain the dress to you- this is simple vertical dress with ANOTHER button down dress attached horizontally to it. It appears to look like a cape but oh no hunny, it’s a dress! LOL. After what seemed about 35 minutes of getting the dress on in the fitting room, it didn’t take long for me to decide that it would come home! My shoes are no stranger to most fashionistas. These Zara strappy heels were all over the street runway during the Spring/Summer seasons. I’m just glad I was able to get my hand on a pair when I did! Would you believe me if I told you I wore these shoes from the Bronx –> 14th street–> 5th ave–> back to Lexington?

Happy Friday. Every friday is Jeans day in my office. Many NYers are known for wearing all black in the winter and I’m not exempt. Today, I wore my Zara jeans with my Zara top picked up on SALE and this Forever 21 cardigan that was about $13. The boots are the Me Too Latrice Boots that I wear almost everyday 🙂

Happy 57th Independence to allll my Ghanaians!!!!! I can daydream all day about the being on Labodi Beach having pineapples but that wouldn’t change the reality of the situation: the only water I’m around is the Hudson River. Hey at least it overlooks the midtown & downtown skylines of NYC. Today I wore this beautiful H&M jacket with a leather peplum and a black skirt. These Me Too boots have been featured on the blog in the past but they are actually a new pair that I just ordered from Amazon. Yes. That’s how much I love them!M necklace is from Primark. Sorry Americans. We haven’t been blessed with Primark….yet.

Today at work, I was told “You always look so beautiful. Do you go on dates after work?” She doesn’t even realize the impact of her statement. I haven’t really been myself this week but her statment reassured me that I should really let go of negativiity and appreciate how beautiful I am! Please compliment someone and uplift their spirits today! You never know the impact it might have.

What I Wore to Work: the Suit

Suit: Banana Republic // Blouse: Talbots // Shoes: Lanvin

Just getting my last wears on this suit before the weather breaks… If it ever does break. In lieu of the Banana Republic Family & Friends discount that I just received from a friend, I decided to wear the suit I got for 50% off last year.  This time around, I paired this tartan or plaid suit with an orange Talbots blouse just to play on the color blocking trend. And it couldn’t be a work outfit, if I wasn’t wearing a pair of shoes that resides overnight in my cubicle lol.

Stay tuned for TWO shopping haul videos that will be uploaded this week!

Good Morning! I just want to say thank you to all the people who follow, like, look and/or comment on my blog. Even though it’s only been a few months since the launch, I see a great change in my life. I’m more daring and conscious of what I wear and just the continuing support gives me so much confidence. I know bloggers do Giveaways after receiving 500+ followers, but I’m so ready to honor you all now. It’s not much but it comes from the heart and I think it’s far more rewarding than material things:

Every morning, I get in the office about 30 min early and have breakfast. My breakfast consists of a banana almond smoothie and/or a bowl of fruit with coffee. Then I read my post-its which contain scriptures or powerful statements that serve as encouragement. My coffee mug reads “LAUGH- Take delight in the Lord and He will give you your heart’s desire. -Psalm 37:4.” And that’s my gift to you today! Enjoy life, laugh and take delight in the Lord!
