Today was such a beautiful day in South Florida. Unfortunately, I had class all day but every chance I got to escape, I went outside and enjoyed it. I completed some assignments on my lap top while drinking a soy latte outside of Starbuck's :-)


My dress is from American Apparel, the typical U back dress. I never wear it alone, always use it as a slip. Its so perfect to layer things with though. The floral vest I'm wearing is from Salvation Army. I think the colors are perfect for Fall- dark & soft.


And of course I had to wear my steve madden high leather boots. The beginning of fall ya know? Had to make it feel real !


Hopefully it gets cooler out. I'm looking forward to wearing nice sweaters and pants. I've already pulled out all my panty hose, can't wait !

Taking my sweet, precious time

The past couple days have gone by in a minute. I was extremely occupied this weekend. Both Thursday and Friday I stayed out until 5am and oh do I love Miami and if New York doesn't work out next summer then maybe I won't mind resigning in Miami for some time. My friend and I actually been looking at apartments downtown. Hmmm but New York is where my heart is. Only time can tell.


Today I let my velvet vest embroidered with gold lay over my shoulders. I found it at a thrift store and I immediately adored it. I looked a little nude considering I was wearing a nude body suit underneath it.


Every time I wear this body suit I find a couple people do a double take. But then theres always that one obnoxious and belligerent friend that exclaims "OH MY GOSH I THOUGHT YOU WERE NAKED !" -__________- With high waist black short pull up and buttoned I went to class.


After only one coffee, one green tea lemonade and a full water bottle the day has come to a rest.
Well not really because I have a ton of things to do after class................ :-)

I was your silver lining, but now I'm gold.

This week I've come down with a weak cold and my body has been acting really funky. I've found myself fixated on my imperfections every morning. Attempting to make myself not look completely under the weather. Especially when the weather has been absolutely beautiful the last two days.

Along with the being sick, I've been feeling odd about other things that have been cluttered in my head. I've been day dreaming and night dreaming about the same human-being and to be honest, I'm just over it. I'm ready for these particular subconscious thoughts to come out and then completely dissolve.


My light sheer chiffon button ups have been my favorite lately. They're new at my job and I pretty much put it on top of everything. It feels so soft on my skin. I think it has an antique and classic look to it. I mean you don't see much chiffon anymore unless its on a fancy dress or the trim of an article of clothing. This color is called "bone". Its a very creamy light color and looks beautiful over black.


This day I wore my tiffany chiffon over a tube dress, which acts like a slip, with classic cream heels. The heels are thrift but the tube dress and tiffany chiffon are from my job, American Apparel.
I belted the over sized chiffon button up with a leather belt which had a bright gold buckle. My life, gold.
I dashed over to the bank like any over typical Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at work. And after depositing the money I opened the store and my day of cleaning / organizing / assisting began.


Like always I wore all my vintage gold bracelets and big gold and cream earrings. This day was beautiful and even though I felt slightly drained and a little irregular, the sun was shining and the day was pleasant.
