Trunk Show

I went to a trunk show for Chic Boutique at one of mi amigos casa's last Thursday night.  All I have to say is WOW!  I wanted every single item I laid my eyes on!  I always like to get to trunk shows a little early or right on time so that I get the best things before anyone else has a chance to lay their hands on them.  I know...I'm  vicious!  ;o)  I got there right when it started, said hello to my friend and introduced myself to everyone and then started my rummaging.  I pretty much tried on everything and I probably would have bought everything I tried on, but my husband would have killed me afterwards.  So I came away with three pretty awesome dresses.  Here are pictures of two of them.  She doesn't have the other one online.

Silk Pink Mini

Voom Silk Navy Charmeuse Babydoll Dress
I wore the Silk Pink Mini dress out to dinner the other night and my husband's jaw dropped.  I'm being serious.  He LOVED it!  I got so many compliments.  The picture really doesn't do the dress justice.  I will have to post a picture soon of the dress on me.  The other dress I bought, which is not pictured, is super fab too!  It's white and gold and is really versatile.  As soon as I put the dress on, I knew I wanted it!  Sometimes, it's just right.  I love the lace back of the baby-doll dress.  It's pretty much the only reason why I bought the dress.  SO cute!

The rest of the night was fun watching others try on items.  We all had food and drinks and put on fashion shows for each other.  Quite the fun girls night!  Any who, if you have time and are looking for a unique dress or top...check out Chic Boutique.  Some of the store's items have even been featured in Glamour Magazine!  Great stuff people.  Great stuff.

Where Did You Go?

Say what?
At the rodeo with Amanda
We went to the rodeo and saw them riding the bulls and broncos. After that was a lovely country concert.
I watched my brother dunk his ring!
My brother, the Aggie, got his ring, and dunked it. Which was pretty funny to watch. He had just finished when I took this really blurry picture.
I got in touch with my inner child. And planted some herbs!
Then I decided that it would be fun to roller blade like it was the 90's again, and it was! Also I planted some herbs and surprisingly enough they are not dead yet.
Then we gorged on chips!
And I really just like to give the dog empty chip bags. I think it is cute. 

So along with a TON of work this is pretty much all I did while gone. That and trying to decorate the house. It's still 80% empty, but we're getting there slowly!

Going Nude

I have been noticing nude colored clothing everywhere I look lately.  I am a huge fan of nude and black together.  I think it looks so romantic.  Really, I just think that nude colored clothes are romantic.  I don't know what it is about that pale pink, blush colored look, but I just love it!

Although nude with black is my favorite look, I feel like it should not be limited to just black.  Here are a few other ideas of how to wear this fabulous nude look:







Source: I would pair this fabulous Alexander McQueen clutch with every one of these outfits!
OMGeee...is that beautiful embroidered clutch not AMAZING or what?!?!!?  Sorry, I got a little off task while searching for nude looks.  But honestly, it would go perfect with every one of those outfits above.  I also really love Kendi's black and nude look from Kendi Everyday.  Take a look at her fabulous black and nude ensemble here.  So great!

Wear almost any color shoe, hand bag, or jewelry with these pictured looks above.  If your outfit is mostly nude, then add a pop of color in your accessories for contrast.  If you are mixing and matching nudes with other colors, then it's best to keep your shoes and hand bags more neutral.

I personally think that nude/blush/light pink is best paired with black, corral, white and navy.  But you can really spice it up with bright colors in your accessories and make it look super fab!  From the looks of it, I think we will be seeing quite a bit of these color combos for Spring and Summer.

Style Me Pretty

So you're back....

 From outer space.
 I just walked in to find you here..

With that sad look upon your face.

Where it came from:
Shoes - Spotted Moth
Jeans - PacSun
Shirt - American Eagle/Forever 21
Necklace - Forever 21
Bag - Feed My Starving Children

Ok. So, I'm no Gloria Gaynor. However I am BACK! I've been gone for a while, but I'm making my debut today.

That bag is the Traveling Bag for a Cause. A good cause that feeds those who need it. This bag was originally bought from Feed My Starving Children (Feeding God’s Starving Children Hungry in Body and Spirit). Brought to you by Spoils of WearI think that is pretty good cause. So, if you have some time visit their website, and make a difference. 

Well I am back. So much chaos and excitement! I have been taking outfit pictures they just don't seem to make it onto the computer/blog.

I wore this outfit to my brothers ring dunk! And if you are an Aggie or know about Aggies then you'll know that this is a big deal and I'm pretty darn proud of my brother for getting his. However, I did have to represent my long horns and wear some burnt orange (I got hissed at because of this - totally worth it!).

I'll try to come back later with some of the fun photos I've been hoarding!

Pick Of The Day

Today's pick is from Tory Burch:

Okay, I am obsessed with this beautiful Seventies inspired Christelle Dress from Tory Burch!  It reminds me of dresses that my Nanny would wear.  She was always dressed so fabulous.  I also love the Metallic Bradshaw sandals that are paired with the dress.  How amazing are those?!  I'll be honest with you...I really just want this whole outfit.  I am picturing this look with a wide belt and gold jewelry.  Any one feel like donating a grand so I can make this dream come true?  :o)

It's My Birthday!

My birthday was yesterday!  :o)  Want to see what I got?  I'll show ya...

Yes, that is the MICHAEL KORS Golden Oversized Runway Watch!  :o)  My Nana and mother in law were very kind to buy it for me.  I don't know how they knew I wanted it.  The husband must have told them.  Speaking of the husband....he came home with a dozen beautiful red roses and surprised me with a wonderful dinner date.  It was really amazing food.  Everything was from local farms and organic.  It was so delicious!  I'm the kind of person who hates having birthday parties for myself.  I just want a nice dinner with my family and close friends and that is it.  I hate the birthday party thing for myself.  I don't know why.  I'm just weird like that.  Don't get me wrong though.  I LOVE the birthday gifts!!  Here is a picture of my gorgeous bouquet of roses from the husband:

He's the best.  Really.  And he got me the best birthday card ever.  Super sweet...made me cry.  :o)  I love him!  Any who...I'm supposed to be having birthday dinner with my padre tonight or the next.  I love birthday week!!  Weee!
