2011: Blogger Fashion Inspiration & Love

Below you will find another collage that depicts 2011… only this collage includes the fashion of bloggers that I couldn’t get out of my head and I added to my inspiration file because they were that fabulous. Is this all the looks I love… not really… but if I was somewhere where I couldn’t save the file or forgot to do so… then the look was too hard to search back down… but for those that I found while linked to my laptop… they are in the collage below…

**If you would like to know what the specific blogger is… leave a comment and I’ll get you a link their blog**

2011: Fashion Review (QueenDiva)

As midnight draws closer and we prepare to bring in the New Year, I decided to go through my year of archives and post pictures of outfits that I wore that I loved the most. I did have some outfits that I loved more than others. But I created a collage that just shows the changes in my fashion over 2011. I have to admit, that during the process of making this collage… I found that I fell in love with my natural hair all over again… think I’ll do my best to get rid of the wigs for good this year…

DOTD: Post Christmas Fashionable

I am soooo glad Christmas is over. It has become one of those stressful times of year that used to make me soo happy. This year I was the saddest I’ve ever been and I haven’t the foggiest idea why. I love to bake and decorate for Christmas but for some reason this year I couldn’t get it together. I think it had a bit to do with my finances… but who knows.

Yesterday, I put on twitter that my outfit for today was going to be super cute… and I still think so… but I hope I didn’t overstate the cuteness of this outfit (I was even thinking that cute-ness is relative to the individual… I’m sick… I know).

Also, today was my boss’ (Pecana) last day. I didn’t know how much it would affect me but it did and I’m sad to see her go. I don’t know what do now… my future is soooo uncertain. Anyway… I am waiting for the New Year because I want to believe that 2012 will NOT be as awful as 2011 was to me… I have every believe that my blessings will come into the new year. I am not much on resolutions (seriously why make a list of things I never complete… lol). Are you ready for the New Year? Are you going to make any resolutions? If so, what are they?
P.S. The ring in the pictures is NOT the ring I wore all day… no clue where I took it off (hope it’s on my desk)

Teal Tank: Wal-Mart
Black Skinnies: Torrid
Khaki Blazer: Curve Appeal Consignment
Scarf: Gifted from work wifey

DOTD: Stylish Lady on A Budget (1)

Hola Divas….
Today I decided to draw inspiration form a set that a friend of mine created a while ago. I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off but I loved the look today (only in the pictures I am SERIOUSLY bloated… being a woman sometimes sucks). But I still love this look. I did have to tweak it a bit because of shoes and well the desire to wear tights… But end of the day… I love love love this look… bloated or not….

I wished I had taken the pictures in the morning… but hey… hindsight.

Today wasn’t a bad day… but because I am all “girl-timing” I am weak and exhausted and just plain BLAH!!! Also, I have a little pain returning in my stomach… I have to stop BSing and go get my lady parts checked… pronto.

Anyway… it’s almost Chrismas… are you ready? lol… I most certainly am NOT!!! Let’s discuss… lol


What I Wore After Being Styled By Polyvore:
Black tee: Alloy
Skirt: Wet Seal Plus
Denim Crop Jacket: Torrid
Black Tights: Assets by Spanx (Target)
Black/Navy Stiletto w/Tassle: ShoeDazzle
Necklace & Earrings: Charming Charlie

Outfit is based on this Polyvore set by @adoremycurves on twitter:

DOTN: 30th Birthday Date Night

Hola Divas…
Last night… Hubby and I went out to ring in his 30th birthday. I wanted him to not be in bed and watching Psych as he turned 30 years old. So we got dressed and went out. I don’t have any pictures of what he was wearing as he refused pictures as I did sort of kidnap him last night.

So we went to our normal local bar and there was some excitement. But first I have to admit that we argued before we went out because he kept saying things that made no sense to me. Now as you may recall (if you’ve been following my blog that long) that hubby and I weren’t doing so well in March of this year around my birthday. All our troubles came crashing together in a huge impact that caused our separation. Now I’m a huge birthday nut… and I believe that all birthdays should be celebrated and enjoyed. But my husband does not have the same philosophy as his birthdays bring up deep rooted issues from his past in his country. He’s working on doing better… but it takes time. Anyway… I asked him what he wanted to do to celebrate his birthday and he said that considering how he “failed” on my birthday… he understands if I want to “pay him back” and give him a crappy birthday. I can honestly tell you I was dumbfounded because… where dey do dat at? That whole statement makes no sense. Tit for tat birthday payback? That would only make sense to a man…

So that why I kidnapped him. I felt it was necessary. And while he was there he was still in a grumpy mood… until something happened… A guy fell down the steps and split his head open. I mean there was a huge puddle of blood. And he was unconscious and unresponsive. In that instance… hubby put his arm around my waist and held my hand. Because you realize that everything could change in an instant. End result is that the paramedics were able to get him awake and up on his feet and into the ambulance. Hubby and I hung around for a bit longer and danced while we appreciated our love and health. Then we headed home just before the club closed. So on the drive home we decided to take the long way home which includes a drive through Baltimore City and Power Plant Live (which is this area with like a mixture of different clubs and bars so it’s like a melting pot of entertainment). Well… if you were on twitter you saw my tweet that said I had saw a woman wearing a thong leotard with fishnets underneath. She was wearing it with flats… so it already was a miss… but what killed me was that I was DYING in thick tights and she was strolling down Lombard Street like it wasn’t 30 degrees outside. Not to mention that she was the largest female in her group (about a size 14/16) and her friends were significantly more dressed then she. I just felt like my eyes should not have been seeing all of that… but to each their own. Fashion is individual…

After that we came home and cuddled and I fell asleep without even touching my phone (which says a lot)…. Anyway… I really wanted him to remember the night of his 30th and recall that I had gone to great lengths to look nice. I got this skirt from Forever21+ a few weeks ago and I love how it holds everything in… AMAZINGLY killer skirt. I also changed the hair again… I think this one… is a keeper… What do you think of the Divalook Of The Night (DOTN)? What do you think of the new hairdo? Did you notice that I couldn’t leave without a pop of color? What did you wear this weekend that was your favorite look?

What I Wore To Celebrate My Hubby Being Born:
Black Top & Glitter Stripe Skirt: Forever21+
Tights: Assets by Spanx (Target)
Booties: Qupid (ebay)

DOTD: Stepping On Clouds Heading Towards Sunshine

Hola Divas…
Okay… today is awesome… I took my son to meet the principal and staff of his new “alternative” school. He was fighting me 100% but after sitting there and discussing the school with the staff like an adult… he seems excited to be embarking on this new future. I love my son… but lately… it’s been touch and go on how I was going to make it through this. Now… I know we can. He even wants to take some photography classes so that we can make my blog “our” project. Something we can do together…

So after the meeting with the school we went to this old abandoned hospital in Annapolis and took pictures. Those pictures are what you see below. They aren’t the best but I’m proud of him and how hard he worked to get them right. Also, he even came up with some poses he wanted me to try. All in all… I think he will be my full time photographer going forward. I really enjoyed the time with him.

As for the outfit… I FINALLY figured out a way to wear these shoes and this scarf together in a way that I like. If you recall the last time I wore it HERE… I wasn’t so pleased… Today however… LOVE IT!!! What do you think?

As for conversation… Who is your photographer? Do you have a tripod? If you had a choice, would you choose tripod or person? What do you think of pictures my son took? Can you tell I’m feeling a bit better? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~


What I Wore To Change My Son’s Life:
Black Cami: Forever21+ 
Scarf: Five Below
Jeans: Wal-mart
Gray Blazer: Curve Appeal Consignment (via Old Navy)
Pink Stilettos: Shoedazzle 
Bangles: Lane Bryant
Earrings: beauty supply
Ring: flea market

Here is a picture of my photographer:


Isn’t he handsome?

DOTD: Shades of Blue

Hola Divas…
First let me say that I am feeling much better even if its not 100%. I am also trying to figure out the next step with my son. I do appreciate all your kind words and comments and will comment back to each of you very soon. I’m just all over the place currently and I want to give that my undivided attention. My title above refers to my corduroys that you’ve seen me where previously HERE. But also because my mood has not been all that festive or happy lately. Which is insane because I LOVE this time of year. I love Christmas and all things Christmas related. So its killing me that I am sick and dealing with stressors that are making it not as fun as it used to be… I’m trying to kick myself into gear…

I am wearing blue because this shade of blue usually cheers me up. Almost… but not quite… Maybe it has something to do with me wanting to put my hubby up on ebay… he’s being stinky and I just have no energy to deal with it… How are you today? What color did you wear today? What color do you wear to cheer yourself up? Feel free to comment on… well… anything Hasta la proxima ~besitos~

What I’m Wearing Today:
White Cami: Forever21+ 
Striped Scarf: Don’t Remember
Blazer: Curve Appeal Consignment 
Cobalt Corduroys: Alloy 
Velvet Booties: ebay (Qupid)
Striped/zebra earrings: beauty supply
