Yes she did...

A few weeks ago I went thrift'ing' at my favorite spot and found two great pairs of culottes! I wanted to narrow it down to just one pair, but at two bucks a piece I said what the hay. I got them both. Then I got the new Instyle magazine and what do I see...

Yep, it's gotta be a sign, right! (?)

I still can't believe it, I haven't had a pair since '79!!!!

 Culottes is a word that originated in French. Historically, "culottes" referred to the knee-breeches commonly worn by gentlemen of the European upper-classes from the late Middle Ages or Renaissance through the early nineteenth century. (Wikipedia)

Come on now, who can pick just one?

I've been thrift'ing' forever.  It started out a necessity, but turned into something I truly love doing.  I've literally gone years without thrift'ing' and other times I go every day.

With that said, here are a few of my favorite pieces...

The pink midi skirt also seen here .
This clutch is my life!^^^

Vintage Etienne Aigner x 2!---->
Crossbody purse^^^

You ever have one of those days where you can't take a decent pic?  This was that day^^^but this black pleated skirt, loves it!

I'm looking forward to seeing every one's thrift'ed' goods!

Maxed OUT!!!

I'm wearing a maxi skirt/dress, so I guess there's a first time of everything.

 I fell in love with the print.  It looks even more awesome in person.
I got this dress because I'd planned to shortened it, but like so many things on my fashion 'to-do' list, I fashion 'to-didn't'. I decided to wear it as a skirt instead, because in dress form lets just say it wasnt' so maxi.

FBFF--Label This!

Fashion and Beauty Friend Friday...

1. As a someone who writes/blogs about fashion, have you placed yourself into some sort of blogging category?
-Well, I think I'm a part of several "categories".  My blog represents several blogging genre's i.e. fashion, personal style, tall women, moms etc.

2. What keeps you from or encourages you to label yourself as a certain kind of blogger?
Way too hot for this jacket!!
-The fact that I want to connect to a variety of types of people/blogs I don't want to put people off. Like I'm tall, but I don't wear things that only other tall people can relate to, you know.

3. When picking blogs to read and follow are you drawn to ones that
indicate a certain group or way of thinking/being?
-Anytime I can relate to something/someone I follow. Nice pictures, good content and/or well written articles are great.

4. Do you think there are benefits in labeling yourself or others?
-Sometimes, if you are creating labels to connect with people and not divide, then it can be a good thing.

5. Agree or Disagree - We're all just people; we don't need all the labels.
-Agreed. No one "needs" to be put in a box!  It's not a necessity it's just something we do.

It's my first time...

Happy Friday!!!
Since my photographer aka my daughter is on summer vackay, I decided to try to use the timer on my camera and my tripod...

Rockin' the natural...

Love this shirt, it reminds me of the print you would see on a vintage scarf.  I got it thrifting last week...$1.50 :-)

I love the pintuck down the front of these jeans....the length is barely long enough; I'm wearin' flats!


It's almost time for the weekend....

 I didn't have time to take pics before work, so I'm a bit of a wrinkled mess!


 Anyplace I could put an accessory, I put one or two, even my ankle!

Trying to get my "blogger" bun right!


FBFF: The KandiSTYLE formula...

Today's FBFF questions were inspired by a post from Vahni from Grit and Glamour several weeks ago in which she outlined her personal uniform or outfit formula as she dubbed it.

1. What’s your go-to outfit formula?
Well during the work week a dress, because it's easy and cute paired with a jacket or cardigan and heels! On the weekend I wear skirts a lot, but I don't have to be on point with hemlines, so I keeps it short!  Jeans and a cute top have never failed anyone.

2. How did you come about this formula?
I didn't, it found me!  It's a lot easier for a girl 6'3" to find a skirt suit than it is for me to find pants, although that's changing.

3. Do you have different formulas for different occasions in your life?
Not really, I'm all about the easy...and for me skirts= easy!

4. Has it morphed over the years?
Yes, when I was younger there was no formula, lol. As a teen, I had a uniform----- GRUNGE and in my early twenties it was logoed everything. 

5. Which other blogger’s outfit formula would you like to swipe?

Anh from 9 to 5 Chic, she consistently looks awesome and Jeimy from Jeimy's Fashion Love Affair that's another one, SMH she does a great job!
