Take 2

Top - NY & Co.
Skirt - Loft
Shoes - Rocket Dog - DSW
Necklace & Bracelet - Kohl's

Yes, you've seen this outfit if you've been following me long enough.  The top and skirt I wore for outfit #1 in  my winter 30 for 30.  I rocked it with purple tights and sky high Jessica Simpson booties. Loved it.  So, this is my take two of the outfit. It was also a result of me being overly sleepy and not wanting to use one ounce of creativity this morning.  I also want to point out that I have NO idea what kind of face that is in the second pic.  oh well.

 2 more days until Vegas!  Tonight I do laundry and pack.  So much outfit sampling to do!!

Food Coma

Dress- Loft
Shoes - Steve Madden Luxe
Cardigan - Kohl's
Necklace - Target

I just got home from a 5 course dinner at Orchids at Palm Court downtown. It's in one of my absolute favorite hotels in downtown Cincinnati EVER, The Hilton Netherland Plaza.  We got to sit at the Chef's table in the kitchen in the middle of it all.  Needless to say, I've eaten myself into a food coma.

Now for the outfit....I've had this dress waiting in my closet for so long. I absolutely love it. I know I know, I say that about everything!  I wish I didn't have to cover it up with a cardigan.  The shoes...oh the shoes. I got these originally $80 shoes for about $10 last Spring at DSW.  Oh how I love thee DSW.

My apologies for slacking

Shoes - Audry Brooke- DSW
Skirt - NY & Co.
Blazer - Target
Top - TJ Maxx
Necklace - Charming Charlie

No post since Thursday, sorry...again.  I've been in a funk the past few days.  It's a mixture of NO SUN in forever, rain, and getting ready to be out of town.  I'm so pumped about my trip but getting ready can be so stressful.   Oh well...at least my shoes are cute :)

Hope everyone had a great Holiday Weekend!  I didn't even get a pic of me dressed up.  Drew and I both have divorced parents, so our Holidays are insane!

Okay I better stop blogging and pay attention to my CMP class!

Similar...but not the same

Shirt & Skirt - NY & Co.
Shoes - Urban Outfitters
Necklace - Forever21
Belt - Target

So yeah, I went for the whole black shirt and black/white printed skirt again...but in a totally different way!

I can't believe this is the first actual blog post with these shoes! As you know, I've had them for awhile (my blog header).  I love them and they are so comfortable.  I've often thought about buying them in every color.  I think they come in almost every color too.

I hope everyone had a good day.  It's rainy and cold here...not happy.

Outfit inspiration and weekend update

Top - NY & Co.
Skirt - Target
Necklace - Target
Shoes - Marco Santi
Belt - Dots

I had some serious outfit inspiration from Kendi! I've had this skirt for so long and had almost given up on it a few times.  Now, we've rekindled that love and we're bff's again.

Wow, I've been slacking! No posts since Thursday. Sorry dudes.   I had a pretty eventful weekend actually.  Drew and I started date night immediately after work on Friday.  We stayed downtown and walked to  Via Vite on the square for drinks.  I tried a a chicken liver pate which was surprisingly AMAZING!

After dinner we went to Local 127.  Click on the link and checkout the menu. AMAZING!  It's a very organic farm to table type of restaurant.  Most of it is locally grown food.  I recommend the scallops or the duck. My favorite part was ordering coffee after dinner...1.) it was french pressed,  2.) I asked them to put Bailey's in it, and 3.) they served it with a side of fresh whipped cream and dark chocolate chunks!!!!!!!!!! What more could you ask for?  Anyway, if you live in the area or you're visiting Cincinnati PLEASE do yourself a favor and try this restaurant.  

So yeah, I was too busy for outfit pics that night (I forgot my camera).  Other than that, I spent my weekend deep cleaning my house and studying for the good old CMP. WOOT!

The spare bedroom

Sweat & Shoes - Target
Skirt - NY & Co.
Bracelet & belt - Forever21

It took me 60 something posts to realize that my spare bedroom has the best light for pics.  Duh! Oh wait, maybe I never thought of it because it's always a mess with Drew's clothes all over the place! haha...yup. We are messy peeps.  Our bedroom closet will only fit my stuff (yes, it's a walk in) so he has to use the 2nd bedroom's closet hehehe.   Before he moved in, it was my shoe and purse closet....oh those were the good old days...   I'd trade a shoe and purse closet for him any day!

This room is also the home of my  insane collection of The Doors stuff and pics of Jim Morrison. I also took my massive painting of Jim Morrison off my living room wall when Drew moved in. Oh the sacrifices I make for love..Heartchoo Drew.

It's a pink kinda day

Dress - Thrifted
Belt & Blazer - Target
Necklace - Forever21
Shoes - Steve Madden
Bag - Thrifted - Vintage 1950's

So here's the deal...  I'm attending a conference in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks.  One of the nights  I'm going to  a "Rock n Roll" themed dinner/party.  Right up my alley! Apparently there is a dress code.  The invitation says...

"Be ready to sport your best rock attire...perhaps you are inspired by Aerosmith? Or MC Hammer? Or even the Beatles...whatever inspires you will inspire us!"

I'm so excited but I have no idea what to wear!!!!! Any suggestions?  Maybe I need another trip to this vintage shop I discovered this weekend.

EBEW: The Maxi Dress

Jean Jacket - NY &Co.
Shoes - Payless

I was out sick yesterday.  I really don't know what my deal is. A month ago I had Bronchitis and now I have cold. Grrr.   Anyway, after napping I decided to play dress up for EBEW today.  I wouldn't get away with wearing this to work anyway.   I wasn't sure how to dress it up at first. Typically this is my go to weekend dress with basic flips. I tought my jean jacket was a perfect fit!

Thrift Shopping!

Drew and I went Thrift store and vintage store shopping today.  This is the first time I actually took my time and found some great stuff!  Drew even found some things!  I discovered the coolest vintage shop ever, Talk of the Town.  They have stuff from the 1930's and up. Amazing!  I found a great bag.  As soon as I saw it, it was love at first sight!

Dress - $5
Floral Skirt - $2
Tweed Skirt - $3 - Banana Republic (originally $98)
Top - $2

This is the vintage 1950's bag I got at Talk of the Town...

I said I would post a pic of our dresses from Heather's wedding...we got way too busy and I didn't have a chance to take any!  Here's a pic of my hair..
