MY STYLE: Color-block hi-lo vest & Purple Skinnies

Hi beauties:
This is the second 'My Style' post in one day....hmmm, it's lovely to have time on your hands eh? It's pouring buckets outside today and I was meant to go to church but the rain was my excuse. I really hope to go next Sunday.

I had a client yesterday for wedding makeup. She is the cousin of the bride who also happened to be standing in the wedding. I feel that I work a lot slower when I sit to do someone's makeup so I usually choose to stand. Of course, with standing, one needs to consider comfort so today's outfit is what I wore to my client's location. Comfy but cute...

The pictures in this post (especially the last single picture) prove to me that I need to stop being lazy and use my Canon istead of my cell phone.

Purple Skinny Jeans- Option 1 | Option 2 (different color options too) | Option 3  
Color-block Hi-Lo Vest- Mine was bought from a local store but try this
Wedges- Mine are very old but here they are

MY STYLE: Fushia Spots

Hey beauties:

How has your week been so far? Can't believe it's Sunday already.

I wore this outfit to work last Tuesday and all day I received compliments about the skirt....well, the entire outfit but mainly on the skirt.
For the last few photos, I have been using my cellphone to take pics but I think it's time that I stop being lazy and whip out the Canon for some proper quality photos......coming soon ;)

Blue tank & a Leopard Maxi

Hey beauties:
Today was a lazy Sunday, a very uneventful one if I might add, but I lounged around until about 4pm when KM and I decided to take the dogs to the park. Apart from being an uneventful day, it was crazy hot so I threw on a tank and converted one of my maxi dresses into a skirt.


Fashion Forward: Oscar de la Renta Spring/ Summer 2013

Hey beauties:
I stumbled across this beautiful 2013 Spring/ Summer Collection by Oscar de la Renta in  Vogue UK online and all I have to say is that I need a few of these pieces in my life.
The collection can be viewed here but here are some of my favorites from the collection and to get my hand on at least one of these pieces would be heaven ;)
This dress is a MUST-HAVE. Even if I have to get it made. It's gorgeous

I'm really feeling this 'suit'; it's very classy and the vest is quite unique

Loving this fringed, peplum blouse

The print on this skirt receives two thumbs up from me

I'm in between on these shoes but I think I could rock 'em

Simple Loc Updo for the Office

Hey beauties:
It has been a while since I have shared any of my loc creations and unfortunately this post will only have one photo but here is a very simple loc updo for the office (especially if you work in a less relaxed environment). It looks classy and sophisticated yet it's so simple.
If you are interested in knowing how to create this simple updo, go ahead and leave a comment.

A Wedge on the Edge

Hi beauties:

It's hump day!  Mid-way through the week (already) and I'm loving it. Yay! I've been in a funk lately and desperately needed a pick-me-upper today so what did I do? I resorted to retail therapy (yup, I'm in need of rehab).
I've always been skeptical of these type of wedges because there is no real heel support but after I fitted them and took a few steps, I knew this pair deserved a new home ;). Tell me what you think. Yay or nay?

Sunshine and Stripes

Hi beauties:

I don't know about yours but my weekend flew by but I guess that's because it was somewhat eventful.

To shake off the Monday morning blues, I chose to wear a sunny yellow wrap blouse(substitute), black and white stripe pencil skirt (option 1, option 2, option 3) with a kick of pink (option 1, option 2, option 3)
