Travel Time

First, I apologize for my lack of posts. It's break, people.

Second, my newest post involves travel. Tomorrow morning I'm going to hop on a plane and visit a friend. I put together a fairly awesome traveling outfit so I thought I would share.
Demin Shirt: Target
Scarf: A Fantastic Gift
Pants: Sears
Shoes: Target

And, third, of course I will share my outfits with you when I return and, of course, I will share all my shopping purchases with you all because I love and adore you.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!


Holiday Party Fashion

Each semester my school, Northern State, (GO WOLVES!), hosts a Jazz Swing Dance as a fundraiser for their Fine Arts scholarships. It is a great reason to support my friends and, well, to get dressed up and dance to jazz music.

Here's my outfit of choice (I wore it with black leggings)! It was perfect for the occasion  but also for any holiday party! Very fun, flirty, and best of all, swingy!

Dress: Short-Sleeve Ponte Dress
Oh and if you are in the Aberdeen area, don't forget to pick up the latest issue of A-Town Magazine for more holiday fashion tips and tricks.

  Accessories: Cream Stretch Pearl       Bracelet
  Cream Stud Pearl Earring

 Shoes: Christian Siriano for Payless (Sorry! Couldn't find an online link!)


Bhopal Fashion: Fashion with a Statement

Last year, my Facebook friend, Caitlyn, created t-shirts in support of relief for the Bhopal disaster. This was, honestly, the first I had heard of the disaster. I did a bit of research; realized the horror and tragedy that took place and did my best to support Caitlyn's efforts. I purchased  the recycled statement t-shirt her and her group had created. 

Today, she posted this onto Facebook:

"The night of December 2-3rd marks the 28th anniversary of the ongoing industrial disaster in Bhopal, India.

That's 28 years of suffering the inter-generational effects of toxic gas exposure. 28 years of drinking poisoned, contaminated water. 28 years of living in fear, wondering if your children will be born with mental or physical birth defects. 28 years of being denied justice.

Please take a moment to reflect on Bhopal's struggle and the world we all live in--a world in which multinational corporations can get away killing 25,000 people and leaving 100,000 more suffering from a toxic mess they refuse to clean up.

Bhopal may be on the other side of the globe to many of you, but their struggle for justice and corporate accountability is just as relevant. We all live in Bhopal"

To learn more about the Bhopal disaster, visit www.bhopal.org.

So in honor of this day, I've created my Fashion with a Statement outfit.

Jacket: Military inspired; Forest Green ($21.00 Thrifted)

Pants: Super Soft Super Stretch Jean Legging - Black

Boots: Mossimo Supply Co. Jane Cowboy Ankle Boot - Black

Inspired? What's your use of Fashion with a Statement?

Swing Dance Fashion coming up soon!!



In the past, my blog has been postings about miscellaneous situations or experiences in my life or the news. My passion is fashion. Hence, the change. I hope you all enjoy it!!




I've done a music post before, and maybe just maybe, I'm a bit too lazy today to think of something creative to post about my life. Oh but tomorrow....You be prepared! Recently, and in the past, these tunes have kept me jamming no matter what. Enjoy.

Ed Sheeran - Lego House
He's the British genius with a loop pedal. Seriously, do yourself and your ears a favor and get his album "+" out now in the States. Also "Drunk" and "Autumn Leaves" (on the Deluxe edition) are  favorites of mine, but all his stuff is bloody brilliant!

Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe
Here's the catch... You HAVE to watch this video. This is how I was introduced to this song via Twitter. Don't they look like they are having so much fun. Yes, it made me want to make a video with my friends like this. Have I? No. If I do will I post it? Of course. 

John Mayer - The Age of Worry
The man may have gone country but hey, he's still John Mayer. Lyrically, this song is perfection. 

Dion and the Belmonts - Runaround Sue
You're welcome for the throwback. 

Until next time...


Hilarious Happenings

I have been neglecting my blog. Okay, that's putting it nicely. I've had some rather hilarious happenings in my life lately, and thought I would need to write them down. Here we are...back in the saddle again. (If you sang that like Willie Nelson, yes, of course we can be friends.)

This first post, currently happening as I type, is from a situation with a friend. My dear friend, let's call her May. She has been notifying me of the hilarious things at her workplace.

Situation 1:
"I'm drinking Smart Water...so I'll git more smart... Psh then I'll be dun drinkin' it and be dumb again...all this shit goes through reverse osmosis purification process... So it doesn't matter if you get it from a river or tap...it's all the same." My co-worker is going to be knockedeth outeth!"

My response: "Yes. That is just nuts. Everyone knows that drinking Smart Water makes you smart regardless of the reverse osmosis prinicples. C'mon."

Situation 2:
"I don't have the patience for that kind of shit!" after he spoke of the crisis of the jammed labeler. *slap of the forehead* I mean I would've if a gnome hadn't been running through my uterus with a machete!

My response: "PAHAHAHAHA! Not the jammed labeler! the day would be over for me. I adore that explanation of the female process.

Situation 3:
"But this annoying-man-coworker thing can be very entertaining...if you couldn't tell. For instance, he was going to run home and throw a load of laundry in then he'd be back. So I ask him to take something to the bank. He gives me the "Uuuuuuuummmmmmmmuuuuuhhhhhmmmmaaaahhhhh..." BS. Then says yes. NOTE:  the bank is on the SAME BLOCK that our business is. His HOUSE is PAST the BANK! Ron White doesn't lit. You CAN'T fix stoopid. To make it worse, he said "Heres you go" once he returned. Like no, GTFO.

My response: Gut-wrenching laughter.

Situation 4:
"This dude just got totally pissed because I charged $.10 extra on 3 mini cake things. Problems? Apparently...I'm such a dime-pusher.

My response: Quite literally a dime-pusher.

Situation 5:
"He just came in mumbling and cussing saying "That damn tire machine..." Me: *thinking* Operator defect?

My response: Yep. Most definitly operator defect. Or possibly, could be the process in which the tire was put on the vehicle or maybe even the vehicle stability. Blame the manufacture.

Situation 5 (continued):
"Lol, no no, the legit tire fixing mechanism! Maybe he couldn't find a YouTube video to suit his needs...

My response: First world problem?

Situation 6:
"This is how desperate rednecks can get for a radio station. Got a tin roof on the building so naturally we get a radio from the 19th century, tie a bright red covered copper battery terminal wire to the very top of the antenna, and clip it onto a random wire protruding from the wall. Makes sense.

My response: You've got to be kidding...

Situation 6 (continued):
Oh and to add to that, we have a neon sign in the window near the radio and when you turn it on, the station is fuzzy. Off? It's crystal clear.

Hope you all have a Happy Friday. And that your workplace is at least a bit entertaining today.

Until next time....
