In The Fashionista's Closet: From Chic to Bushed

Yes yes, I know, I've been wearing my chains and this bag like they're going out of style, I just love them both so! I'll switch it up soon, I pinky swear.


People were asking me about my necklace at the Dallas Chic Festival event and I know I've said it before but it's actually three items. One vintage pendant necklace (I doubled it), a jeans belt (see similar here) and a chain belt (see similar here) that I've doubled. I'm a firm believer that you don't have use things for their intended purposes, wear a necklace as a bracelet, a dress as a top or turn your dress backwards. Be Nike, just do it!

Tank: Target
Isaac Mizrahi for Target Skirt: Thrifted
Bag: Vintage

I.heart.these.shoes. They are one of my highest heels but the platform makes them comfy and I wore them all day with no issues. Here's a closer look here:

OMG this limontini at Neo in Victory Park was super delicious! It was a like a slurpee (but with alcohol!) 

Required reading? My friend is reading this book, she whipped it out at lunch and I got sidetracked by my pizza and tasty adult beverage that I didn't get an opportunity to really examine it. Sounds wicked, doesn't it?

Busy Saturdays makes for one tired girl but I had a fun fun day!

I have a lot of nicknames, my favorite is Megs. said...

So when I looked at the first picture the only thought in my head was: OH PLEASE LET THERE BE A CLOSE UP OF THOSE FINE A** SHOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And then there was. I stared. For awhile. I am glad I met them on the internet and not in person. There would be a lot of awkward staring. And maybe me knocking you out in an alley and jacking them.

Fabulous! I owned that skirt ( not your skirt of course, I'm in SC and a size 16) years ago, seriously, It came in a bright pink too! I but I gave it away because of my big butt and how a full skirt just sits on top of my big ol' butt!!

Juanette said...

Thank you ladies! @Jamie, I have a big butt too but that didn't stop me from wearing my skirt!

Your vintage bag is just amazing, don't stop wearing it bc I'm not tired of seeing it at all. Loving the tank and full skirt look, it has a 50s flare with modern twist.

Dear Jaunette,

When you get tired of your bird bag, please feel free to send it my way. I promise to take very good care of it and feed the birds every day. Lol!!!! and if you would like to include your fabulous green sandals in the bag, I won't be mad. Really, it's no burden at all.

Hugs,

Eboni Ife'

haha!!! just kidding... unless you're considering it...I'm just saying... that bag is TO.DIE.FOR.
