My Christmas Gift to My Self

Happy New Years!!! Wow its 2013 , I feel so futuristic lol I didn't write down any resolution this year because honestly they never last. Plus I shouldn't change just because its a new year. I need to make major changes in my live daily.

I know I am super late with my Christmas goodies. But I just had to share some things I bought from Forever 21. I was watching a video on YouTube  a guy stated that sometimes when you buy things, don't buy your normal pair of jeans on a plain dress. Buy things that make a statement and buy things you know in the back of your mind your to scared to wear because you don't want to be judged!!! So thats what I did, I found clothes That would be to scared to wear or i wouldn't normally buy. Well everyone should know that right before Christmas F21 had a big 50% of sale.  I was super lucky to have stopped by and found theses wonderful statement pieces!!

I was so happy when I saw this. I didn't have anything leather and now I do!!! The sleeves are leather and the from and back of the jacket is made from some type of wool material.

When I saw this dress I thought I could never wear anything like this. But once I tried it on I was so pleased. I looked great in it. I love the neon green and royal blue combination. Its real funky but sexy at the same time.

The front has a slit. I don't have big breast so I don't have a problem with that. It comes with a neon green belt. Which I love. I can remove it when I'm ready and mitch and match belts. 

The first picture is in dim lighting and the second one is with the flash on. It has a rich gold color and the material is really elastic. This has to be one of my fav's right now in my closet. I can't wait to wear it!!

Jacket: $15.49
Dress: $5:99

I love being a broke fashionista!!!

I'm not to sure how to wear the gold skirt, do you have any ideas?

Solange Knowles

I am in love with Solange right now!! I really don't have any words to describe the relationship we have lol it's so amazing lol But seriously I am so happy for her. Her carrier is booming. She is gorgeous, she is natural and she can sing, its like she is a ball of fabulousness, if that a word. I really need her to come out with a clothing label and stop playing. Because home girl look hot all the damn time. And her hair is always on point!

Atlantic Station: Ladies Day Out

A couple of weeks ago a high school friend of mine and I decided to go out to Atlantic Station. It was a nice day, it was sunny but a little cold, but we had a blast!

We went to Victoria Secret 1st. If you ever sign upon their site, you can receive free offers in the mail. I received a free underwear and $30 off a bra. 

Next was H&M!! I love this store. They had  a lot of sales on dresses, bags, gloves, shoe, well everything!! 
 I bought a bag for her and me and a pair of gloves. 

After we ate at the Cheese Cake Bistro...

DSW was next and I decided to have a lil photo shoot with my girl Natasha!!

So my look was really retro. I am falling in love with long Blazers. They make your outfit look really effortless but classy.
 Blazer- Thrift Store- $7
Shoes- TjMaxx- $20
The top is actually a dress that I bought from Ross $7
 ( Please ignore my retarded sleeve smh my friend didn't tell me to fix it)

So on my way home I spotted this nonsense, and all I was thinking was these people in Atlanta don't play lol. I mean  I know a woman had to have done that smh She was mad!!
