DOTD: Overworked… but well paid

I want to blog… fashion and blogging is my one creative outlet… however… I am super swamped at work. Yesterday, it was the hottest day of the year (come to find out today will be even hotter) and I had a stroke of genius to take my pictures in the morning. Luckily I did because around noon I found out I had to work until almost 10pm last night. But what is hilarious is that while I took these pictures… I was already sweating at 7:30 in the morning… THAT IS CRAZY!!!!

Here is what is going on in my life currently….

Oh… that’s right… nothing. I work… come home and go to sleep. I hope to take a vacation next month with my family to Busch Gardens. I don’t want it to get to the point that all I do is work… but I want the people at my job to know I’m dependable and that what I say I will do… and will get done correctly the first time. So that is my question for today. Are you a career woman with a family? How do you balance work & family? Does your spouse (if you have one) support you in your career? Would you do anything differently if you could? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~

P.S. No makeup because it was too hot for makeup in my opinion.


What I Wore While Working Late:
Dress: Asos Curve
Striped Blazer: Dots
Shoes: Shoedazzle
Flower: Target 
Ring: Burlington Coat Factory
Earrings: beauty supply

DOTD: Good Vision… but Blurred

Hola Divas…
I’ve been seeing outfits with orange maxi skirts for a while. And then I saw another last night while watching television with hubby and I told myself that I would definitely be doing this look today. I posted a pic of my “inspiration” on instragram. If you are on Instagram… follow me @deepqueendiva. I also do a post I call Daily Shoe Porn… where I post a pic of my shoes I’m wearing that day. But I digress…

So this was yet another outfit that spoke to me… I feel like I’m finally getting a bit of my fashion mojo back. Let’s hope I can keep this up… hahaha… the title is because these pictures are obviously not my hubby’s clearest work… lol.

So today before I left work I was told how awesome a job I am doing by my  boss and HR. I was told they wished they had hired 3 of me. I have to admit I still love my job and that makes all the difference in the world. What do you do for a living? And do you love what you do? Does loving/hating your job makes your days easier/harder? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~


What I Wore While Getting Praised For My Hard Work:
White Cami: Wal-mart
Orange Maxi Dress (worn as skirt): Asos Curve (bought last year)
Black Moto Jacket: Torrid
Snakeskin Shoes: Shoedazzle
Bracelets: Ashley Stewart
Ring: flea market
Earrings: beauty supply
Necklaces: Mixed locations

DOTD: Blue Leopard

Hola Divas…
Have you ever had an outfit that just speaks to you for days and you can’t clear it out until you wear it. This outfit is one of those for me… I fell in love with this outfit in my mind and even though my dress was bigger than I thought it would be… I still loved the outfit.

Now when I got to work the happiness of the outfit was almost ruined. How? Well, I work with a friend and although I value our friendship… she had become exceedingly more and more negative. And do be around someone who is that negative… is… well… exhausting. And today… during the meeting she tried to “imply” that I wasn’t doing my job well. I don’t hold grudges because that is who I am. But I feel that I am not being a good friend if I don’t tell this person that their attitude and demeanor is affecting our team. How should I mention to her that her tone is causing her to be left out of the “TEAM” environment? How do I do it in a way that she is not defensive? Do you have a co-worker that is also a friend? How do you deal with work “squabbles”? Hasta la proximas ~besitos~


What I Wore During A Difficult Situation:
Blue Wrap Dress: igigi (bought long ago)
Black cami: Wal-mart
Leopard Pumps: Target
Earrings: Wal-mart
Leopard Head Ring: flea market

Blogger Brigade: Kiyonna Fashion Done My Way!

Hola Divas…
Guess what… I’ve had a secret for a few weeks that I couldn’t wait to share!!! I’m the newest member of the Kiyonna Blogger Brigade. I’ve loved their clothing for… FOREVER… and when they contacted me… it couldn’t have been at a more perfect time. Why? Because I was already coveting multiple items on their website.

So lately, I’ve been on this wrap dress fetish type thing. The problem is that finding a REAL wrap dress is like the hardest thing to find… because the world is filled with thousands of faux wrap dresses but that is NOT what I was looking for (do you have any idea how hard it is to get a faux wrap dress over these boobies?). There were like 5 REAL wrap dresses on the Kiyonna Clothing website that were begging to be in my closet. Anyway… so in my search for the 1 item I wanted to wear (hardest decision EVER!!) I found this dress, the Whimsy Wrap Dress, and I chose it for 2 reasons. 1) the flounces around the hem… was like… ADORABLE & 2) it was one of the few items I hadn’t seen another blogger wear so I could really be original. Next issue was trying to decide which I loved more… polka dots or purple. Perfectly Plum… was my final answer… lol

When it arrived last week… I tried it on 3 times because waiting to wear it was KILLING ME!!! But today… the time finally came and I have to be honest… it was more than even I thought it would be. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. The only flaw this dress has… is that it is not wind friendly… a couple times while taking photos I thought I might get arrested for indecent exposure… but that would have been one amazing mug shot. I have some other ways I can’t wait to wear this dress. I love that this dress is called the Whimsy Wrap dress because today… I felt whimsical in this dress. I could totally see this dress in Mad Men. How would you wear this dress? Do you like how I styled it for my initial wear? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~


What I Wore While Feeling Whimsical:
Whimsy Wrap Dress: Kiyonna 
Yellow Cami: Wal-mart
Shoes: Shoedazzle (Tasmin)
Ring: Burlington Coat Factory
Earrings: beauty supply
