Spring Cleaning and eBay

Like a month ago I decided to thin out my wardrobe. I have way too many clothes that I no longer wear and are taking up way too much space in my closet preventing me from buying new stuff! I donated some stuff, I gave some of it my niece and the rest I decided to sell. At first, I went to Storenvy.com and opened up a shop to try it out. Unfortunately, I didn't get any buyers, so I went back to my old faithful eBay.com.



Don't Sleep on Pay/Half

I realized that I  am drawn to anything black and white. I have alot of it in my wardrobe and enjoy wearing it. It's a classic and clean look which is my style of dressing. But there's something about silver accessories that always make a black and white outfit for me. I got this dress from Pay/Half and wish they had it in other colors because it is such a cute, simple dress and the price was under $25. I decided to take one more pic by my tree because it is coming down this weekend. I will have to brave the cold and retreat to taking pics in our communal terrace. 


Twerking over Tweed

One of my very first purchases from Torrid was this Charcoal Tweed Peplum Tank Dress. I was a little leery at first since it was my first time purchasing anything from Torrid. But became an instant fan when the dress arrived. It fit me perfectly, the dress was true to size and it was made so well. Obviously I've been a fan of peplum for a while even before it became so trendy.


Snake skin and Shoulder Pads

When I first got this Ponte Contrast Pencil Skirt Dress from ASOS Curve, I wasn't sold on it. I've never worn a dress that length before or anything with shoulder pads, but I loved the look of the dress. I normally prefer my dresses right above the knee or higher, I just like the way they look on me better. I was indecisive about shortening the dress, so it sat in my closet for a while. During this time I kept seeing a lot of pencil skirts and dresses in my favorite stores and how pretty the length looked on other women. So I decided to step out of my comfort zone and give it a whirl!



Peplum and Leopard Print

I'm starting to think that I might actually need help with my animal print obsession lol. I seriously can't pass up anything with Leopard/Cheetah print! I hear a little voice in my head saying "You could never have too much animal print!" and then I grab what ever it is and make my way to the check out. My most recent purchase were these Leopard Print Platforms from Target for the mere price of $24.99. I mean really? I couldn't NOT buy them, right??

Fun with Mock Suspender Tights

I first saw these cool mock suspender tights (see here) on the lovely Passion Jonesz in her blog post called "Rockin Suspender Tights" (see here). I thought they were such a clever idea, and looked so cute on Passion. She wrote in her blog that she purchased them off a website called Donatella's, and that they carried plus size tights. I immediately went on the site to check them out. They had so many other cool and different designs. After browsing for a while, I ended up just purchasing the suspender tights to try them out.

Sequins and Chiffon

This New Years Eve, I wanted to go with a simple and elegant look. I was spending NYE with my Beau's family, so of course I wanted to look nice. I saw this Paillette Bodice Dress on the Forever 21 website and instantly fell in love but I waited too long to get something for NYE and there wasn't enough time to order the dress. I frantically went to the Times Square store and to my luck they had the dress!

Christmas is gone, but not forgotten

For the month of December I was a bit lazy with outfit posts, so now I'm behind. Also the weather in NYC has gotten really cold and I have not been able to take pics in my communal terrace. I was forced to take these pics in my house but since it was the holidays I decided to take them in front of my tree.
