Lady in Red

Good morning all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I spent the weekend with my nephew Frederick celebrating his 27th birthday. I had a wonderful time with him, Varaya, Stafford, Tynetta and Mike. My BFF Shoshanna joined in and provided the many LOLs.

Red is my absolute favorite color. I can’t get enough of it! I’ve been waiting patiently for a red skirt to come along & I finally found it. The pencil skirt is from Love.Ady and was on sale @ Bloomingdale’s for a mere $28 (marked down from $68!). Currently I’m in love with pencil skirts after years of telling myself I couldn’t possibly pull it off because of my hips. Hips be damn! I stopped thinking “no” and started thinking “hell yeah!” I’m not going to limit my fashion choices because of what someone may think. Now I have tweed, denim and leopard print (growl!) pencil skirts.

The blouse is from Ann Taylor Loft. I love the print and ruffles. I can dress it up or down. I knew when I bought this blouse, I would be wearing red with it. Or cobalt blue…hmmm…

I also wanted to give a HUGE shout out to my girl Thomasena ( for helping me with getting my blog started. She was patient with me and provided the much-needed encouragement to actually see this through. Thank you gurl!

Also I want to thank Tamera for being my photographer. She is so sweet and helps with constructive criticism. Plus her little boy TJ is too CUTE!!!

Whew! Have a happy Monday!!! Four more days til Friday!!!

    Girl I am a firm believer that if you DON”T have hips you have no business wearing a pencil skirt. You rocked it Getta!

    Hey! I got that skirt, too! I have been saving it for my trip to Miami this weekend. I can’t wait to wear it.

    That’s a great look you put together.
