Oxblood and Dots

13 Feb

Happy Hump Day Everyone,

The snow already melted from last week’s blizzard from the 40 degree weather we had over the weekend. I wish the snow would stick around it looks prettier than this gray weather we have had lately. I am sure you have seen this sequins polka-dotted top a lot from other bloggers, only I have seen it in the black with the white polka-dots. I settled for the vintage champagne I figured it would transition well for spring and summer. Who says sequins is only for winter?

Yes, this black and white snake print clutch again! For one, black and white is big this spring, two black and white has always been classic, and three this clutch seems to go well with many of my looks, (and to think I thought about returning it).

Fancy Pants

6 Feb

Hello everyone,

I must say I love fashion, however I have to be careful with the trends due to my age, and although I am loving all the pants with prints, I have to be selective because some can look a little too youthful so I settled for these which I think I will be able to wear for several years, and the best part was that they were on sale!

Sunnies in the white snow are just as essential as in the sun, as the white snow can be very bright on the eyes.

Lovely Lilac

12 Jun


Hello Lovely Labradorites (Labradorite is one of my favorite gems),

We recently had the privilege of attending a wedding at the Toledo Ohio Zoo and what a treat it was. We saw a Bold Eagle while being driven to the ceremony by the staff in a golf car, (boy was it fierce looking). Unfortunately, I did not take a picture as I was too busy enjoying the surroundings.

Fortunately enough the ceremony was by the Cheetah Village which was walking distance.
Bag: Fendi, long sleeve, draped neck dress in Lilac by Max Azria. I had this dress for over a year now and never had the opportunity to wear it because I was missing the jewelry, so I did what I do best made jewelry for it.

And here I am gazing at one of the most beautiful creatures on earth the breathtaking cheetah, (towards the left) wow what a site to see. Heels: White House/Black Market. As I reach my mid thirties I noticed I am into heels that are closed toe, or a slight peep toe. I find they add more of a polished elegant look.


Closer shot of the Cheetah (towards the left).


We were lucky enough once again to be in walking distance to the aquarium. Anything fish and feline related are a must see for me while visiting the zoo.


My how stylish: Polka Dotted Sting Rays.


Cheetahs, Polka Dotted String Rays, striped fish so this is where we human beings get our styles from.


I know one thing for sure if my husband weren’t a human being he would be something underwater related, as he is a Pisces can you tell as he stares deeply into the coral reef (I think he would be a sting ray judging by his personality) and of course I would be a cheetah because I am a Leo.


Earrings and necklace: embrace by essentjewels, the earrings you can find here, and the necklace you can find here.


Oh, did I mention we were at a wedding? And yes, we had a lovely time, despite the fact that these cute cupcake wedding souvenirs weren’t edible.

Until next time my friends,
Monica
