Happy Friday glammy gals,

I’m so looking forward to this weekend. Tomorrow is my 11 year wedding anniversary and I plan on living it up with the hubby all weekend long. This is the first time I’m letting him take control and make the plans- I will let y’all know how he does. Being that I’m an event planner its so hard to give up that control of making all of the preparations and coming up with unique ideas. So I’m going to sit back and let him do everything………and I mean everything

Hope you all have a glammy weekend………..I know I will………

Thrifted from head almost to toe

Good morning luvs,

As I have mentioned in several posts before, I absolutely love thrifting. I think its that whole element of surprise. You never know what your going to luck up on. More often than none, I always seem to find something that I love on my thrifting adventures. One thing that I love about thrifting is that you can find unique pieces that everyone won’t necessarily have. It allows my creative juices to flow on how I’m going to style something that may be ugly as hell to the average person. But I see beyond that and always think of ways that I can reinvent a piece and make it hip and current. My look for the day is completely thrifted minus the shoes. The blouse is gap. I paid $2.00 for it. The blazer is Zara and I paid $6.00 for that. Jeans Ralph Lauren for $2.00 and the belt is Jill Stuart I paid $8.00 for it. My shoes are from Dillards, I believe I paid about $40.00 for them. Oh I almost forgot about my clutch………..thrifted $1.00…………..
Is anyone else obsessed with thrifting like me?

Happy Monday,

Hope everyone had a great weekend. My weekend was busy as usual. I enjoyed the company of my girlfriends, wine & laughs on Friday night. It was the perfect prelude to a great weekend & just what I needed after the long work week. I dedicated my time to my hubby & daughters on Saturday. We had the best time just enjoying the weather, eating & shopping.

I spent Sunday with my wonderful Dad. I’m so blessed to have such an encouraging, supportive father. I don’t think it was until I was an adult that I really realized that I was so very lucky to have a father that was fully engaged in raising me & my siblings & was there for us for everything. Good & bad. But more importantly set the bar for how you are to treat a woman ( your wife)
That was something that I saw daily with how he interacted with my mommy.
Thank you daddy for all of the life lessons & loving me unconditionally………

Basics with sherbert tucked in

Good morning glammies,

Sorry for the lack of posts, but life has been super busy for me this last week. Here’s a look at what I wore yesterday. I have mentioned in the past that its really hard for me to wear my shirts tucked in. But I’m slowly getting there. I may not have a washboard flat stomach But I would like to sometimes be able to tuck my shirt. So if I don’t step out of the box & just do it, I will be regretful & we all know that’s no way to live a fashionable life.
So here it is….

What’s old is new again

Happy hump day,

Last night I stumbled upon an old pair of BCBG heeled slides that I bought I’m thinking about 6 or 7 years ago. I don’t even know why I held on to these shoes for so long, but I’m glad I didn’t get rid of them. This shoe is on trend with the whole jellies and candy look. It makes me want to go out and buy a furla candy handbag. Which is on my list for summer buys. After digging deeper through old footwear, I saw that I still had the green pair that are identical to the yellow ones. When I like something I tend to buy more than one- case & point. Do any of y’all buy duplicates of something that you really love?

Shirt- Diane Von Furstenberg
Jeans- True Religion
Shoes- BCBG

Happy Monday Glam Dolls,

I hope everyone’s weekend was great. I had a lot of time to relax & spend time with my daughters. yesterday my girlfriend and I went to eat lunch at Carrabbas. I received an invite from them to come for a complimentary lunch to taste some upcoming dishes they will be adding to their menu. Everything was incredible. I enjoyed everything from the appetizers to the dessert. Did I mention this is one of my favorite restaurants….. I have been eating there for years and I literally order the same entree every time. So it was really nice to sample other options that they have to offer. I wore this oh so comfy thrift store buy. The so I thought, red dress. I had this dress for at least 6 months. When my cousins were here to visit I showed one of my cousins the dress and referred to it as being red. She said you must be color blind because this dress clearly is orange. When I took a closer look, I realized it was more orange than red. So I refer to it as the orange red dress now. What color does it look like to y’all?
