Typical work day

I do this blog because I want to see what I look like when I get up and go to work in the morning. I know I can do better.

I also noticed that I have been wearing purple this week since Sunday-- So I am keeping the theme and I will be wearing purple all week. I'm the only one that dresses up for work in my company. Everyone else wears a company logo shirt (i.e. polo shirts) . Logo shirts seemed to be the rule of thumb but I like to dress up (or at least try to)

Running around town

My husband wasn't here to help me and personally I think he's getting annoyed of me asking him to take my picture all the time, so I decided to take my own picture this morning. Excuse the mess but the only full length mirror I own is in the bathroom. Mondays and Fridays are usually more casual for me. Today I'm running around town trying to UPS/FED-EX/Mail business stuff as well as do anything that needs to be done (work related of course) before I go out of town. I need to be somewhat dress in case a customer needs me to make an emergency visit. I admire the bloggers that can do this all the time because in a way blogging is work.

Denim dark wash skirt w/kick pleat-Eric Stewart
sleeveless print turtleneck-one west
purple sweater-Merona
open toe shoes-Mossimo ( I love the shoe *sparkly and comfy)

Going out for Pho'

I'm glad I'm doing this because I'm going to start wearing belts or something to cinch my waste. Again, I feel like a box looking at the picture. Maybe a jacket? Today is our lazy Sunday and since I don't feel like cooking we are going to PHo' for lunch. If you haven't tried PHo' I suggest to try it once because it is soooo good.

Print cotton dress-Mossimo
Shoes--Sigerson Morrison for Target

Day 2-Morning outfit

I really need to start learning how to pose or something because this is just a bad shot and I think I look mean or something.

Suede brown boots-Kenneth Cole Reaction
wooden bangles-Dean Harris for Target
necklace & earings--semi precious stones
brown cashmere cami--Issac Mizarahi for Target

Dinner with Friends

I may be a little fancy for going over to a friend's house for dinner, but I really don't care, I like to dress up, but I can't tell if this dress is flattering on me or not. What do you think?

Yes, I know that you are suppose to love your body and if you dress it well you can even look slimmer, but darn it, I look like a box! As much as I don't like the pictures, I really do like the dress, maybe it will be better on someone else?

Dress-Calvin Klein
Jewlery- Amethyst earings & necklace
Ring-swavorski crystal

Missing shoes

Have you ever regretted giving away shoes you wish you didn't? Well here are two example of "I wish I still had them".

These two pairs of shoes I had a few years back, I donated them to my local thrift store because I wasn't fashionable yet to know how to pair them up with. The Nude BCBG's I don't mind so much because due to my work life I have to wear close toe shoes, but I do miss the orange ones.

This was during my 'trying' stage and yes, I do take pictures of all my shoes--sadly I have so many shoes I need to take a picture of them so I know what I own and A) not repeat buying them and B) its easier for me to pair up stuff with. If there was a time machine, I would go back and get them :)

Birthday Shoe

I know its probably to early to post again, but I had to share this with you.

My wonderful friend gave me a shoe calendar because obviously I am obsessed with shoes. This is the shoe the Designer Gods chose for my birthday. Guess what? I own the exact same shoe. Yup! same make and crazy is that?????

Day 1-The beginning

Today is my introductory day. I have been admiring all of the fashion blogs and have always wanted to do one. I dress up almost every day for the past two years and I like to think I'm getting better at it as each day passes.

My first post will be about my closet. I try to shop my closet every day but for some reason new things keep appearing :-)

My husband has restricted me from making anymore purchases, so we'll see how that goes.

I have tons more pictures of my closet, (skirts, dresses, pants, more shoes, purses and jewlery) not shown. It just got to be to much so I decided to just give you a small example of what I own :)
