Target's BOGO Sale

Hello Friends, I hope your week ended well and you are now home safe and sound.  After work I stopped at Tar’Jay to make a return and of course took a detour to the shoe department.  Winter is not yet over and the North East is being hit with a major snowstorm, however, retailers are busily stocking their shelves with Spring apparel.

Target is having a BUY 1 GET 1 50% OFF on their shoes and accessories and my tootsies were getting excited in anticipation of being free again.  The details on Mossimo shoes are getting much better, check out some of the latest styles currently on display.

There were still a few clearance items on the shelves including boots which will be needed for at least another month.  However, the Cap Toe heels and loafers were no longer available and most likely were shipped to Goodwill stores in the area.  Target, being a good Corporate Citizen donates a lot of their unsold merchandise directly to Goodwill where even better deals can be had.

OOTD – Pink Pantsuit

Good Monday Morning Friends, I hope you had a nice weekend and if you are a Raven’s fan – CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

We didn’t have a Super Bowl party but my son invited two of his buddies over to watch the game and they had a great time.  I made chicken wings, pizza and slow cooked barbecue meatballs which they ate well before half time!  We were all very excited to watch the Ravens win especially after the 30 minute blackout, which caused a lot of anxiety for the fans, even Twitter shut down for a short time.  Blue Ivy’s mom was on fiyah and I enjoyed her performance with Destiny Child but not all of this year’s commercials performed well. Once again, Dorito’s knocked it out of the park with the Goat and “Daddy Princesses; I also liked the Tide “stain”, eTrade baby and Budweiser commercials but missed the one with the Clydesdale horses. The “Go Daddy” ad was disgusting and Dodge Ram was disappointing because of the lack of diversity in their “God Made Farmers” commercial and if I hear that Gangum Style song used again I’ma scream!

I am not a football aficionado so I cannot comment on the actual game, only that I love Ray Rice because I grew up with his mother and aunt in New Rochelle, NY.   Back in the day I dated and almost married his great uncle, Kevin, but that was way before he was born and a story for another time…it’s just a distant memory now….

The game ended late and I didn’t prepare my clothes for the week so once again I hit the back of the closet and pulled out this pantsuit.

OOTD – Two Times Tuesday and THANK YOU

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

There are only a few traces of yesterday’s snow and according to the meteorologist, Mother Nature will be having a hot flash so all that remains will be melted by Friday.  It’s tough for people not to accept the existence of Global Warming especially with all of these varying weather conditions around the world.  Al Gore has been speaking out for years, now just maybe people will take him more seriously.  Okay, stepping down off the soap box.

Most of you know that I love…love…love…shoes and will be the first to admit that I have too many, but it’s not something new, I have been a shoe lover since High School.  I’ve always had to have the latest styles in different colors…pastel pinks…mellow yellow…aqua marine blue….heels…flats…sandals…boots – I loved them all.  These days I don’t buy as many as I used to but when I find a bargain, I am on it like a heat seeking missile (remember the Target haul?)  Because I have so many I can’t remember ever wearing the same pair two days in a row that was until today, this is the first time.  There are two reasons for this, first I am still trying to get my closet in order and secondly, these Granny boots are comfortable and look cute with this outfit!

OOTD – Let It Snow!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay Fri-Yay Fri-Yay

After a long restless night due to a toothache I awoke to this gift from God!

OOTD 1 25 13 007

This is the calm before the storm as Winter is definitely in full force, with snow scheduled to begin falling around 3 p.m.  The roads have been brined to cut down on commuter accidents because the temps are also going to drop even lower into the single digits.

As you can see, I am fully prepared and hopefully will leave early enough to stop and pick up a bottle of wine (for me) and Chinese take-out for my men. My plans are to be indoors snug-as-a-bug-in-the-rug until at least Sunday.

OOTD 1 25 13 009 OOTD 1 25 13 011

These Paisley Skinny Jeans and Infinity Scarf were both on clearance at Target and men’s sweater was thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill). The boots have been in my closet for several years and most likely were purchased from Payless.

OOTD 1 25 13 008 OOTD 1 25 13 010

Believe it or not, this faux fur vest once was a coat that I DIY’d because it didn’t fit properly. I shorten the length using the excess for a scarf, removed the sleeves and made a pair of leg warmers.

Do you refashion clothing, if so, what have you done and how did it work out?

OOTD – Winter Wednesday

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Being outside this morning was a little more bearable because of the lack of wind however, the temps are forecast to remain in the teens until at least the weekend. To that end, I would like to say to all of my left coast friends …”STOP COMPLAINING BECAUSE IT’S 40 DEGREES!!!

I truly don’t mind the cold weather because it allows me to dress in layers and then make adjustments as necessary. For example today I am wearing a sleeveless grey dress covered with a blazer so if I have a “personal summer” I can simply remove the blazer until it passes.

OOTD 1 23 13 002

This outfit started with shoes but in the sunshine the tights took on a weird greenish tint so I changed to my OTK, black suede boots.

OOTD 1 23 13 003 OOTD 1 23 13 008

This black faux fur once belonged to my sister so you know it’s been around since the late 80’s – I really don’t like driving in it because of the bulk.

OOTD – Don’t Step on my Blue Suede Shoes!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

This morning I jumped out of bed when I realized it was Friday….tomorrow I can sleep in – yay!  I am such a sleepy head, I never get enough sleep – sometimes I am tired of being tired.  Commuting back and forth to work 1 & 1/2 hours each way every day really takes a toll on me and my car.  Tomorrow I am sleeping in until noon!!!

How many of you remember  Elvis Presley’s hit, Blue Suede Shoes – well this is my version of the shoe, actually booties and they are much nicer than what he sang about.  If you do remember Elvis, what was your favorite song or movie, I liked Blue Hawaii.

OOTD 1 11 13 005

OOTD 1 11 13 007 OOTD 1 11 13 006 These blue studded booties by Bamboo were purchased several years ago from Burlington Coat Factory and the skinny jeans were $16.44, from “Wally World” (Walmart).  They had several different colors and I may have to get another pair because of the fit.  I chose 1 size up because they are low riders, but I think I can get away with a pair in my regular size.  The sleeveless tank was purchased on clearance from Boscov’s, and the jacket was thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill).  Silver cuff bracelet from Citi Trend, rings and earrings from my jewelry box.

OOTD 1 11 13 012

Wednesday, my son’s Business Class went on a Field Trip to Macy’s in NYC, he purchased a pair of Nike Sneakers and this T-Shirt which I thought was really nice.  I can’t wait until he no longer wants it because I’d love to wear it!

OOTD – 5 Shades of Purple

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay, the first one of the new year.

I don’t know about you, but I feel exhausted!  Perhaps it’s because the highs of the holidays are over or simply because I need more sleep…whatever it is, I’m just glad that the weekend is almost here.  Today’s casual Friday oufit consists of 5 shades of Purple ~ socks, boots, scarf, gloves and eye shadow.  Does it remind you of “Barney” – “I Love You…You Love Me” – lol
