Coo-coo Over Animal Print

If you know me, I'm a sucker for anything animal print. There isn't an article of clothing, shoes, or accessories that I can pass up if it's animal print, specifically leopard or cheetah print. I just love the way it looks with other color combos or if I'm using it to accent an outfit. You can't go wrong with it. Went through some of my pictures from my blog posts and put together a bunch of my animal print ensembles

Draping and Animal Print

For the past 3 yrs my Beau's sister throws an after Thanksgiving dinner party for a few of her friends and family that she wasn't able to spend Thanksgiving with. She's an awesome host and spares no expense when it comes to the decor, food and hospitality. It's always a wonderful and fun night. This year I decided to wear my Purple Draped Dress from Walmart (see here).


The Highly Coveted ASOS Curve Military Jacket with Studded Shoulders

As many of you plus size/curvy women out there that love ASOS.com as much as I do, were aware of the highly coveted Military Jacket with Studded Shoulders (see here). I was devastated when I finally had the money to spare, the jacket was sold out and was not going to be restocked. I was absolutely crushed, but I wasn't giving up hope. As crazy as it sounds people do return stuff to ASOS.com, so being totally obsessed with this jacket, I literally would check the website everyday to see if any were returned. Low and behold I went on the site one morning at work and it was back, I couldn't believe it. They had a size 16 and 20. I needed a 18 but I since I know ASOS stuff can tend to run big sometimes I snatched the sz 16. By the time I finished checking out the sz 20 was gone!! I still wasn't going to get crazy happy until I actually had the jacket in my hands and when I arrived to work Wednesday the package was sitting on my desk. I immediately ripped open the plastic and there it was in all it's glory, it was more beautiful in person! I tried it on and it was a perfect fit even with sizing down, it was like a dream come true. My own little Thanksgiving Miracle!

Night at the Cabaret

I went to see my friend Vanessa open up for her friend Karen Gross who's a Cabaret singer. Vanessa is a spoken word artist and goes by the name The Hebrew Mamita. She's amazing at her craft and I never miss anything she's in. So what better way to represent a cabaret show than to wear a Tuxedo Blazer with Faux Leather?

Girls Night Out

I had a fun  girls night out Friday with a few of my peeps. We all met at out favorite 2 for 1 martini place Pazza Notte (see here). They have all flavors of martinis and the food is great as well. Since we were all meeting after work I wanted to wear something that can be a day and night outfit. So I went with my Scarf Print Top (see here) and Faux Leather Pleated Skirt both from Forever 21.


Sexy in Sequins

Sunday night was the monthly comedy show they have at Creole Restaurant (website here) in my neighborhood of Spanish Harlem called Lozada Lowdown Comedy Show (see FB page here). I try to make this every month because it's always funny as hell. As usual I like to get dressed up for any outing I'm going to, so I opted with a very sparkly look. I wore my Forever21 Studded Blazer (sold out) and ASOS Curve Legging with Embellished Panel (See here).


Doggy Dog World

Saturday was just a hang out day for me and my Beau. Our usual IHOP for breakfast, then walk home so we could burn off what we ate and then just chill. I wanted to wear something casual but cute, so I went with this Collar Pleated Terrier Top (see here) and Button Front Faux Suede Skirt from Forever 21.



Peplum and Leather

I bought this dress from Ashley Stewart (currently sold out) to wear for my birhday (I'm a Halloween baby!) but unfortunately Hurricane Sandy had other plans and I didn't get to wear it. So this past Friday, I went out with my Beau to his friends b'day party and decided to wear it.



Killer Kaftan

On Fridays for work I like to get dressed up a little bit, so I pulled out my Green Paisley Kaftan Blouse from Rainbow. I paid next to nothing for this blouse and its super cute. It's made of a satiny material and the emerald color is gorgeous along with the paisley design. I get so many complements when I wear this blouse. I paired it with my Faux Leather Pencil Skirt from Forever 21.

Birthday Weekend in Atlantic City: Part Two

Saturdays agenda consisted of The AC Aquarium, walking the boardwalk and The Legends in Concert show at the Bally's with ending the night with drinks at the Mountain Bar where it's 24hrs happy hour! The day was cloudy as the approaching Hurricane Sandy made it's way towards us. But it was still cool enough to walk on the beach. I decided to take a few shots of my outfit here.


Birthday Weekend in Atlantic City: Part One

I decided to spend the weekend before my birthday in Atlantic City with my Beau. Wanted to do something different but not spend too much money traveling some where farther. I've only been once to AC and it was many moons ago. Me and my BF aren't huge gamblers so I wanted to try and see the sights, do some shopping at the outlets, see a show and of course walk the boardwalk. I don't have many pics of the few outfits I wore because my memory card on my DSLR camera all of a sudden got messed up. Thank goodness I brought my trusty point and shoot and I also use my cellphone to take some shots as well.
