In The Fashionista's Closet: Possibilities

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Steve Jobs

All you need in the world is love and laughter. That's all anybody needs. To have love in one hand and laughter in the other.” -August Wilson

     “Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” -Epicurus

“There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”
-Albert Einstein

 Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.” -Hazrat Inayat Khan

 "I really don't think life is about the I-could-have-beens. Life is only about the I-tried-to-do. I don't mind the failure but I can't imagine that I'd forgive myself if I didn't try." -Nikki Giovanni

In The Fashionista's Closet: Kids Say the Darndest Things

One of my students said that he was trying to figure out what middle age is. He said that he thinks it's 32 because his mom is 32. Then he asked if I was 36...
My students had a History Fair Project and the theme was Revolution, Reaction and Reform.

One of my students chose Tupac. I respect that....

Another student told me not to take it the wrong way but that I looked like I go to the club and have a GOOD time!

I told him that I don't need to go to the club, it's a party wherever I show up!
I haven't been this happy to see a Friday in a loooonnnnggggggg time...

Jacket: Marshalls (Shoutout to my little sis for giving me the gift card to purchase this jacket!)
Sweater: Marshalls
Skirt: Target
Boots: Target

Have an amazing weekend!

In The Fashionista's Closet: Roll, Bounce

My "color explosion" continues with my fave colors all jammed into one outfit.  
I went rollerskating on Sunday night.

It was THE most fun but these people were serious, SI-REE-US about their rollerskating, you hear me??? Tee shirts that said "Roll Model", personalized skates that lit up and skate dancing routines (Skancing?)

Sweater: Old Navy
Shirt: Thrifted
Skirt: ASOS
Bag: Kooba
Boots: Juicy Couture

It was a good time. But three and half hours of rollerskating will make your bones mad at you the next day.

I'm gonna do it again soon.

In The Fashionista's Closet: Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You

You know that feeling...when you first meet know that there's an attraction flirt, they flirt back.....and you keep making eye contact? You know that there's something there...

"Looking them in the face" is what I like to call it when you're making that good-good eye contact.

That's how I feel about these shoes.....

They were calling me...I went to them...a match made in heaven. Shoe heaven, lol.

I keep looking at them....

I have been eyeing them for a while on the Steve Madden website and found them at T.J. Maxx in Houston thirty dollars cheaper! Whoop whoop! *Picture me dancing to a Big Daddy Kane song here.* Don't know Big Daddy Kane? Watch "Unsung" on TVOne (I'm so addicted to that series.) 

Earrings: Body Central (I had never heard of this store but I saw a cashier at Walmart with similar earrings that I got from Aldo and she got them from there. They were about 5 bucks cheaper at Body Central.)
Sweater: H&M
Men's Shirt: Thrifted
Jeans: Ross
Shoes: Steve Madden Pammy

Still "looking them in the face"......

I'm trying to update more frequently so please bear with my lack of "sexy" backgrounds until I figure out how to leave work before dusk.... 

Make it a great day!

In The Fashionista's Closet: Yellow And Blue Make Green

I was doing some organizing of my closet and I laughed at the realization that I always gravitate towards these same primary colors. I adore yellow and green (think Sprite) and I like to add blue as an accent color. I used to have the hardest time finding anything green a couple of years ago, now it's everywhere. I have to stop myself from buying anything else green but sometimes I just can't help myself. (I will buy green shoes if I come across them though. Sorry.)
Bright colors make me happy, I'm definitely not afraid to throw some color in the mix.

Yellow with anything makes me a happy camper!
What's funny is that I wore this same sweater and a checked shirt for Nerd Day at school with khakis and tape on my glasses.

I found these earrings at the beauty supply store when I tagged along with a friend of mine. Who knew they had such cute earrings? Everyone but me I guess....
Scarf/belt: American Apparel
Men's Shirt: Thrifted
Men's Izod Sweater: Thrifted
Jeggings: Target
Boots: Juicy Couture

I watched Crazy, Stupid, Love over the weekend and it was the cutest movie! I enjoy Steve Carrell in general but that Ryan Gosselin was funny and yummy in that movie. Definitely made my weekend a little brighter.

It's time for new glasses and I snapped some pics while selecting frames and used the Picplz app for Android to play around with the photos.

I knew that  wanted some Ray Bans but I loved all of them!

I couldn't decide...

The tortoise are a safe bet but I think that I want something a little edgier...

These last two are the same frames....

What say you? Which frames are your fave?
