Sushi Outfit

Hi Friends; I'm trying to upload all my saved pictures unto the blog before the year ends; three more days to go!!! Wow!!! I do not want to carry over any of them into the new year...:-). New year, new beginning...LoL!!! I couldn't think of a better title for this post so, I hope you do not mind and can find humor in it.

This outfit is what I wore to have dinner with my friends earlier this month at a Japanese restaurant. My friends were going on vacation for Christmas with their families and we wanted to have dinner together before they left so we picked a Japanese restaurant for our meet-up and it was quite fun. 

I wanted to put on an all black outfit then decided to put on this black and white print pant I got from Macy's a while back. For some reason, I couldn't find the earrings I wanted to wear that evening and after making a mess in my closet, I decided to just go without earrings but not before throwing on a statement necklace. I have been stocking up on them after I discovered the Walmart collection recently. These statement necklaces are the best thing to have come out of Walmart...:-). And at $10.00 a piece, they're a real steal. My hair was also all over the place but it was a situation of "big hair-don't care!"..LoL!!!

I had so much fun that night I can tell you. We ate and chatted well into the night and were the last set to leave the restaurant. The food was good too; it was actually my first time sampling Japanese cuisine and I enjoyed it. We took some pictures when we were about to leave and for some reason the lighting was not in our favor but we managed to save some pictures.

My friends are fashionistas; I tell you. They have kids like me but they are some stylish Moms! I liked the sequin dress and thigh high boots that my friend Bunmi wore and  Naya wore a black jumpsuit with a stylish leopard prints belt and a teal jacket; very chic and stylish. I'm going to re-create both looks on the blog. It was nice too for us to take out time from our busy schedule and the kids to just get together and have some ladies' time.

My Christmas Outfit and a Snood

Hi friends, so this is my official Christmas outfit for the year 2014. I wore a different outfit on Christmas day to celebrate my son's birthday and had to reserve this official outfit for the day after; I did not have a Christmas outfit last year because I was too pregnant to care...:-). So, it was exciting putting an outfit together this year. 

This pleated red skirt was custom made by my seamstress and I wore the purple one here. I felt like if I needed to wear pleated skirt in the winter time, it had to be made of thick durable fabric and since I couldn't find such online; I bought some pleated fabrics from the fabric store and had the skirts made. I can wear them to church and any other formal event in sub temperatures.

The sequin top is actually a sequin express dress that hubs got me for my birthday a couple of years ago and the snood was made by me; yeah moi...:-). I have always wanted a faux fur snood and most of the ones I liked were a bit expensive like this one here and here and here so I decided to make one myself and it came out really nice. It was on my Fall list that I blogged about in this post here. I would put up a DIY pictorial of it later; it's really easy to make and it's super comfy and gives a lot of warmth. It's also different from a regular scarf and a great accessory to have for the cold season. I am also wearing my new booties that I got a couple of weeks ago for less than $15.00. So, this is my Christmas outfit; simple and fun.

Sequin top: dress used as blouse
Skirt: custom made
Belt: thrifted
Clutch: T. J. Maxx
Snood: DIY
Necklace: Walmart
Earrings: Gifted
Coat: Chadwicks

Now Christmas is over **sniff, sniff,** I'm going to miss all the harmonious and melodious Christmas carols and the beautiful decor and the lights..
