MOMENTS IN PARTY HISTORY

The Cool Guy

The Cool Guy

Having the “Cool Guy” at the party is a must.  Why? Nothing irritates him and he has such laid back conversation.  You know ladies at a party ..”Watch my drink” “Watch my purse” blah blah blah..

The “Cool Guy” smiles and says “Sure, no problem.” He even keeps his word, drinks and purse remain in tact.

Dapper Don

Dapper Don

No, his name is not Don it just seemed to go well with Dapper.  This is the guy at the party that makes you check your threads to ensure that you are stylish enough to even stand beside him. The good news is even if you are not he is too much of a gentleman to make you feel anything less than fabulous.  He is great to have at a party because he sets the style standard.

Boogie Shoes

Miss Boogie Shoes

Let’s face it would it really be a party with out Miss. Boogie Shoes?  She is the lady who came with one goal to have a good time! She danced the night away.  She let the cool guy watch her purse and told Dapper Don to tell the DJ to play her favorite songs.  She came prepared with golden flip flops just in case her golden stilettos prevented her from busting out her favorite moves.

COLOR THERAPY

I had to attend a graduation, however it was 100 degrees. I desired to wear light colors to reflect the sun. Also, since it was a joyous occasion I’d also like to say these are my happy colors.
The young lady beside me was nice enough to pose with me after I complimented her groovy, vintage style. I loved everything about it!

I was on my way inside the venue where the graduation was to be held, she said “I like your dress!”
I replied “I like your shades!” Then we posed.

I will close with a solo shot of this fun dress. It’s the only Nanette Lepore piece I own. I would definitely purchase another one of her dresses, this one served me well!

JUMP RIGHT IN

I had to do a project for school on London. To get into the mood I wanted some fashion that might have a London feel. This is the only garment I owned made by a UK based company( http://www.next.co.uk). I am totally ok with the silhouette, I’m fond of the oversize trend.  The great thing about this jumpsuit is that it’s a staple piece.  You can pair different accessories with it each time to give it a whole new look and feel.

Thus far I own 1 nice watch.  You can see the watch peeking out in the first picture. I have had this watch a couple of years and it has retained it’s finish well. I also have not had to change the battery yet.

This piece of jewelry is on my other wrist. Wanted to provide a close up since it was not in view in the first picture.  The amethyst was so the force was with me on an important presentation day.

ANTIQUE LOVER

image I took a walk today and saw something fabulous beckoning me to enter this open door. image There they are! I saw these silver beaded hoop earrings. I was instantly transported to Sade songs playing in my head. image Find #2 is a brass hairpin! The store’s owner gave me tips on how to clean brass (a product called neverdull). image Last but not least, this gold shell has a clip on the back.  It’s original use was to clip onto shoes. I’m sure I will find a way to clip it in my hair.
