Loving the prints..

White Hanes tee: Target
Animal Prints Skirt: Victoriassecret
Shoes: Victoriassecret
Bag: Aldo
Bracelet: Neighborhood store

Four more days before my birthday and this is day four! count down outfit. My love for Animal Prints is ongoing and I do not know when it's going to stop...:) I got this Victoriassecret skirt over the summer which I blogged about in this previous post. What I like most about the skirt is that the animal prints is not so over powering and as such it can be worn to almost  any place. Throwing a neutral color blazer over it can make it appropriate for casual Fridays in a work environment that is not so formal and a simple change in top and accessories is what this skirt really needs to go to any place. In this case, I just threw a white tee over it because I went to a casual event; a friend's get-together party at her place.

Initially I thought of throwing in some red accessories like putting on a pair of red pumps then I thought that was really cliché and decided to go with black pumps and purse. The black prints bracelet also got thrown in to highlight the other black accessories.


 Now that I scored this skirt, I am thinking of moving on to another print skirt I recently found on polyvore that I blogged about in this post here. The River Island Animal prints skirt has very fine details that makes it unique and though the prints are very bold, it is actually a color block design. The back view is all black and the prints is only an insert at the front. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed on it because I have never shopped at River Island before. Has anyone ever shopped at River Island? Any thoughts...

Gingham on Gingham

Gingham Shirt: Dress barn

So, this is Day Five! count down to birthday post. I got this gingham shirt from Dress barn a long time ago but only get to wear it whenever I'm expecting. This is because the shirt is two sizes up and a little loose. I couldn't find my right size at the store at the time but the shirt was on sale and I decided to go home with it. I thought the gingham prints looked so pretty then and it was the only gingham print I owned until I added this pair of gingham sandals I purchased from Victoria's secret.

I was having a bad hair day the day these pics were taken and actually had a lot of days like that over the summer. My natural hair right now is still at the initial stage of dreads and my wig is worn out already...:) I'm thinking of doing an "Unveiling" post on my birthday which comes up in a few days but I'm still trying to decide what to do exactly. Do I reveal my natural hair or reveal my face without any make-up? Talking of make-up, I do not really wear much of it and only just recently took it up a notch as a result of blogging. My make-up products/routine now includes foundation which I only use sparingly to cover up blemishes, lipstick, eyebrow pencils and eye-shadow and mascara sometimes.  It is great to pay attention to our outside appearance in order not to look shabby and untidy but like I always say; the greatest make-up or makeover ever is the building up of the "inner man." Our spirituality and personality matters more than anything else in this world. People would always get drawn to us when they know that we have an excellent or attractive spirit/personality and not really because we wear all the expensive labels that are out there.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving your comments and thoughts on pictures or messages that you read. I enjoy meeting new bloggers and always return visits in the shortest time.
