I am back and I am excited! I took an unplanned break from the blog for a few days but photo sharing never really stopped because I was busy on my instagram; @beautyojo. Can you believe the year is almost ended? My oh my! Thanksgiving and Christmas is just around the corner. Well, the celebration has started at this end. I had a party last Saturday to celebrate my birthday and it was loads of fun. My friends went far and beyond to make the party so much fun and I am so grateful.
This JCrew lace dress is what I wore for my party and this dress almost never happened because it arrived Friday night after I made an overnight express purchase on Thursday. I had one of those "Aha" moment when I looked in my closet days before making the purchase but could not find anything to wear for my party. I mean, my closet is full to the brim and yet; I could not put an outfit together! Thank God this dress made it on time. I actually bought the dress, necklace, earrings and belt in one purchase and thankfully, JCrew had a sale going on; the shoes are old though; I got them from DSW years ago. I got the glitter belt for $11 from the JCrew girls' department and I checked again a few days ago but it's all sold out. I must have gotten the last piece and I am glad I got it because it did add some bling to the dress.
Dress: J Crew
I apologize for the shadows in the pictures; I waited for hours for the sun to go down so I could take some pictures on my front porch but it stayed up even late in the evening so, I asked my son to take the pictures anyway and decided to include the shadows in the title of the blog post; kind of the old saying; "when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade."
Thanks so much for stopping by
