Don’t Worry, I’m Still Alive

In case you were worried about me (probably not), don’t worry! I am still here.  It feels like forever since I did an outfit post. When was the last one? What was I wearing? I can’t even remember…Oh, it was the cropped top.  That was last Friday! Sheesh! (This is me talking to myself)  Well, I’ve gotta be honest, I haven’t taken a single picture all week (translation = I haven’t gotten out of my lounge clothes all week).  Thankfully, I had these pictures from this past weekend when I went to lunch with my cousin (when I picked my AWESOME new turquoise pumps!). I felt pretty sassy in this outfit.  I always love mixing feminine with masculine, like this floral peplum corset paired with my new favorite boyfriend shorts

H&M Corset | GAP Shorts | DIY Raven Bag | Dots Necklace | Cheapie Earrings | Versace Sunnies

What I love about looks like this is the understated sex appeal. Fab even gave me the eyes as I was walking out of the door.  That’s a sign that I did well in the sexy department. Lol!

Side Note: How much do you guys love the change of scenery for these pictures? I know I love it! I am so sick of my saaaame old back drop. I am trying to find other places to take pictures…

Did you notice that I am debuting a new LEOPARD PRINT BAG!!! Woohoo! Remember when I said I was trying to convince Raven to add leopard print carryalls to her collection? Well, I’m not gonna take all the credit (Reiko!) but I’d like to think my compelling arguments begging & pleading for a bag in this print are to thank… lol! Just kidding, just kidding! But seriously, thanks to Raven for the awesome bag. I love it! I also LOVE being able to support my fellow bloggers in their business endeavors.  It’s just another cool blogging perk for me.  When Raven blows up, I’ll be able to say that  bought some of her first pieces!

Oh!!!! I have been meaning to tell you guys that if you LOVE the Jessica Simpson Dany’s but weren’t able to find them anymore, Asos released an identical shoe recently.  Now, the tan is sold out but they do still have the gray available in size 9 and 10.  If you’re interested, I’d move fast! They are bound to sell out super fast.  They are about $140 (kinda pricey, buuuut if you really want them…this is why Reiko calls me an enabler! Sorry!)

Well you guys, tomorrow is the last day to enter my Blogiversary $50 LuLu*s gift card giveaway!!!!! I’ll be picking a winner on Monday and I am SO excited.  I also just reached 500 followers via Google!! Wooohoooooo! You guys ROCK! Another smaller giveaway might be on the horizon if you don’t win this one.  Gotta celebrate the big 5-0-0, right?

Last words before I go…I NEED A TAN!!! #ThatIsAll

Thanks for Stopping By!!
