I'm so dramatic right! 

Thank you Classy Career Girl for giving me my very first stylish blogger award!

So, part of winning this award is linking back to the person who gave me the award, sharing 7 things about myself, paying it forward to recently discovered bloggers, and sharing the news with them.  So my 7 things will be very random, because I am...a bit random!
1.  I'm a vegetarian
2.  I 've had lasik eye surgery more than once (they keep reverting!)
3.  I sleep in a waist trimmer like this; don't judge me!! LOL
3.  I'm taking a sewing class
4.  I've been natural (my hair) for 2 years
5.  I have an aversion to any type of white sauce (yuk) i.e. mayo,ranch dressing

Inspired by... Lexy @ beautifash

Crazy for Camel...
I was inspired to go look for a camel blazer after seeing Lexy @ Beautyfash. She made it look so cute. She worked two of my favorite things camel and leopard! I purchased this camel blazer at my local thrift store for $1.99, and I love it!

I couldn't wait to get it back from the cleaners it still needs some alterations-sleeves and new buttons; but I wore it anyway, you know how I do. :-)

Here's Lexy-
So cute, right?  Effortless-chic-timeless

Wedding Bell's....

I went to a wedding this weekend, my first one in years.  The bride was my cousin Sheena, she's 22 (I think) and her husband Mario is 19!!  They looked like two kids, very cute!  It was a very nice ceremony, the reception was a lot of fun.  I danced until my feet hurt, then I had to stop because I don't do the barefoot in public thing and I didn't want to leave my shoes unattended.

Just old enough to drink, literally birthday was in November!


I'm running late for 2011...

This is my first post of the new year and it's a casual Friday! 

I wore my burgundy shoes that I got on black Friday for $25.00 at Nine West (love 'em).  Tall girls--I finally got my hands on a pair of Big Star Jeans (Maddie) and I have to say that I'm not really feelin' em.  For those not in the know these Big Star Jeans are supposed to be the thing for tall girls.  They  have an extended inseam and the girls were all over them. They're okay, and that's it.  A little low, in the rise for my taste, they make my legs look short!

 I'll be glad when I can start taking pictures outside again.

I'm super excited about 2011, I feel like I have some amazing things in store for me this year and I can't wait!
