Good Morning! I wore this striped cropped top from H&M (very sad I can’t find it online for you! But It’s def in stores), paired with my Forever 21 polka dot pencil skirt and Joe Fresh flats. Just to keep it on the professional side, I threw on my handy dandy TopShop blazer. Enjoy your week!
Good Morning All! Check out my Haul Video! It’s long overdue but I was having so many difficulties 1- getting an adapter 2- editing the video and 3- media sharing it! All of the pieces were less than $20 and can still be found online or at your local stores!
Here are links to some of the things featured on the video:
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 🙂
1. I finally received my Macbook adapter in the mail! If you didn’t read my prior posts, I mistakenly vacuumed my old adapter so my Macbook has been dead for weeks!
2. I will be uploading a ‘Items Under $20’ shopping haul video AND skin care routine video (requested) this weekend!
3. I am going to finally film my fitness videos this weekend!
4. My social media sites are officially up and running! Instagram- @AuntyChristina // Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/JustMissedtheRunway I’m afraid to getback on Twitter after about 2 years. My mouth is reckless and I hate accountability 🙁
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.
