DOTD: Bluer than Blue

Hola Divas…
Ever have somewhere important you have to be and you can’t for the life of you think of something to wear. That is what happened to me Sunday night. I had a big meeting with our client on Monday and I couldn’t think of anything to wear but leggings (which would have probably have cost me my job). Lately I have been having fashion block. I have had some cute outfits here and there but since my camera is acting stupid and makes all my shots blurry… I just don’t feel like taking pictures. I will be buying a new lens soon… just don’t know when.

So here are the updates on what has been going on with me. I still love my job… yes… that hasn’t changed. My son is doing better and has decided to make it his goal to be drafted by the NBA (clearly after he gets a college education though). He is doing much better even though he does occasionally makes me want to commit teenager homicide (was I this annoying when I was a teenager? Probably lol). My daughters have decided to pick their own hairstyles and they are rather trendy… at least in my opinion. My hubby is still working for himself even though he is currently on crutches due to the fact that he fractured his heel falling off a ladder. We are also looking for a house which will greatly impact my shopping… but my family will no longer be in this apartment. I’ve joined the gym. Haven’t lost any weight… but he has changed how I’ve been feeling lately… and that is really why I wanted to work out.

Review: Smokin’ Hot Jacket (Wilsons Leather)

Hola Divas…
So earlier this week, I took time out before work (really early in the AM) to take pictures of me in a Leather Blazer I received from Wilsons Leather for a review post. They found me online after joining the Kiyonna Blogger Brigade. They sent the jacket wanting me to just try on the jacket in a post and to review how it fits.

Here is what I first want to tell you. Being a blogger is hard work because even though I was exceedingly excited about the jacket and the possible fit of it, the thought of actually putting it on during this recent heat wave made me physically ill (no really… I had heat exhaustion just thinking about that jacket). But on Monday, I decided… who cares… this jacket looks amazing (on the hanger). Then I tried it on… I think I actually heard angels sing.


  • It’s too freaking hot to wear leather… period
  • Color: Wouldn’t I have loved a crazy color like red, purple, or forest green. But black is equally fine.


  • Material: The leather is super soft. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I was not expecting a jacket that felt like it was made out of leather cashmere…
  • Fit: This jacket is a size 3x. Due to my arms… sometimes things don't fit quite like I would like them too. But this left ample space in the arms but wasn’t too large that it ruined the fit of the jacket.
  • Cut: It’s a blazer cut… enough said… it’s cut trendy and hugs the curves.

All in all, had I not been given this jacket to review… I would have definitely bought it. I think that my biggest problem is that I don’t generally think about fall items until its actually fall/winter (unless its shoes). But I realize that I have to pay more attention, this jacket which is usually $400 is currently on sale for $179.99. That is the kind of deal I need in my life. What type of jackets do you wear in the fall? Would you consider giving Wilsons Leather Jackets a try? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~
