OOTN: Friends and Coworkers

Hey Babies!

Let's jump right into it lol! Last night I went out with my sister Meghian, some friends and coworkers.  Where did we go you ask...PURE!  Remember I told ya'll I didn't think I was going back to Pure (well not on Fridays) because that's "kiddie" nite.  Well some of my friends had never been to Pure so I told them my experience and they wanted to see for themselves, smh.  So I obliged and went because I wasn't doing nothing (bored on a Friday nite, I think not!).  Much to my surprise we actually had a good time I danced so much lol. Here is what I wore...

Crop Top-Wetseal, Jeans-JcPenney & Booties-Payless

New hair! Lol just trying a new weave and i plan on getting a short doo after this.

My sis Meghian idk where her boots came from but her top and shorts are from Forever 21+

Moral of the story the party doesn't make you, you make the party!

What did yall do this weekend?

As promised here are my goodies I found thrifting!
Genuine Leather vest $13

Talbot's Black Dress $6

Blue blazer $2

Love this print and its made out of shawl like material so its not heavy $4

Turquoise Blazer $4.99

I love all of these pieces and cant wait to rock them!

OOTD: Thrifting

Hey Babies!
Yesterday my mom, sister, and I went thrifting!  My mom is becoming more of an addict than me lol, she finds great pieces (I think its because she is petite, lol) for instance yesterday she found a blush color BEBE suit for $13!  My sister wasn't really looking for anything but once she saw the different items I found she was on board. 
The Look
Mobile weather is very bipolar lol the other day it was 34 degrees but yesterday was humid/hot.  I had on boots in the beginning but changed into flip flops after i stepped outside.

I picked this shirt up earlier this week from Old Navy.  It's actually to big because i had to go up a size for the arms to fit.  Of course being me i decided to tie the front in a knot so the shirt fit me better.  I came up with tying it in Old Navy when I tried the shirt on for my sis,  once i stepped out of the dressing room a fellow customer saw what i did and purchased the shirt also.

Button down & Skinny Jeans-Old Navy

I'll post my thrift finds later on tonite or tomorrow so, stay tuned!

Ok so i thought today was the 15th lol but oh well here is my natural hair journey yay!
Big Chop Jan. 15, 2011

The color was the result of a dye job.  I told the chick i wanted streaks instead she dyed the top of my head blonde, it was pretty but it looked like a hi-top fade lol.  I dyed it with 3 rinses and got the color you see to try and blend the sides and top.

OOTN: Skate Date

Hey Babies
I hope yall had an awesome weekend because I did minus the toothache:(.  I dont know if I mention it but my bay works offshore for 28 days and comes home for 14 days.  I was so glad when he arrived home Monday, one becaues I missed him and two because I was in absolute pain (dentist appt this week).  Anywho, whenever he comes home we always a plan a date for the weekend.  Usually we go to the movies or something like that, this weekend we decided at the last minute to go skating. The decesion was last minute because we were headed to see The Devil Inside (I love scary movies) but after reading the reviews we decided against it.  Now not only am I a fashionista, Im a bargainista and a few weeks back I found a skating voucher on LivingSocial for $7!  The voucher paid for our entrance and skate rentals, go me lol!  Lawd yall I havent skated in about 3 years, so I was definitely rusty (we both were, lol) but once I went around a couple of times it was on and poppin!  BJ thought he could out skate me but I proved him so wrong, yall know men come up with all kinds of excuses as to why you are better than them lol.  The DJ was jammin too, can you say Frankie Beverly & Maze and Teena Marie YES!

OOTN:  Top-Old Navy, Jeggings-ASOS, & Boots-Torrid

These boots are very comfortable, I wish I would have bought the other color also.

Hunny that blonde puff is showing out in this pics lol!
Shout out to E. Louise of ShapEly Louise her latest post was on these exact boots from Torrid! I was going through some pics on my hard drive after I told her I wore mine on Christmas Eve.  Low and behold I did snap a few pics of me in the boots, great minds think alike.
