May 2010. What can I say about this month last year? It was a blast!! I experimented with different wigs,  traveled to Allentown, PA for one of my good friends' Bridal/Bachelorette Parties, visited my closest college friends in Philadelphia, PA, and attended 2 College Graduation Parties. On a not so happy note for that month, I got my car stuck in flood water, resulting in catastrophic engine failure...sooo my Camry now has a refurbished engine...Sheesh, a lot happened last May!



Which look or looks do you like the best?

Casual and DIY

Tuesday, June 28, 2011 - by Shasie · - 44 Comments

I've been looking around EVERYWHERE for a white version of this black vest that I already own. I just wanted something cheap that I could throw on when needed. Nothing pricey. I bought the black one from A'Gaci for like $7.00.  I could not FIND a white one to save my life...and it's summer! You'd think at least the store I bought the black one in would have had a white one, but they had every color but white. I bought this cardigan from Forever 21, and even though it's light, I still didn't want anything on my arms in this heat, so it's just been sitting in my closet. This morning I decided to cut the sleeves off and create the dog-on white vest that I've been hunting for. Here are the results:

Vest: Cut-up Cardigan from Forever 21
Linen Capris: New York & Company
Shoes: Fioni (Payless)
Tank: Body Shaper (New York & Company)
Sunglasses: Fendi
Necklace: Vendor at Houston International Festival

I've been dying to wear this pair of shoes ever since I bought them a few weeks ago! This outfit was definitely created around the shoes. Since the shoes are black and brown, I went with the same color scheme for my clothes. Of course, I couldn't show up to work with a spaghetti strap tank top on, so I had to add something to cover my shoulders. I knew that I didn't want to wear a blazer, sweater cardigan, or anything I made the decision to cut my white cardigan from Forever 21. I think it turned out perfectly! This little DIY number will be getting lots of wear from me!!

WHAT I WORE: Vintage Scarf

Monday, June 27, 2011 - by Shasie · - 52 Comments

Vintage Scarf Haiku for IFB Project #2
Print of white and black
The fabric longs for the neck
the scarf, in sheer bliss

No my head isn't itchy, I was just trying to be more creative with my poses at work! Thanks to Justin (my super nice co-worker who so nicely takes these pictures for me at the office), I didn't have to worry if I would have time to take pictures at my apartment because I had these ones from the office. Turns out I did have sometime before Bum-ba (more on that word later), and snapped some photos at home too.

Scarf: The Vintage Scarf
Pumps: Some Brand from Target
Slacks: Express
Tank Top: Express
Blazer: Burlington
Lipstick: Impassioned (MAC)
Handbag: New York & Company

I bought this scarf from The Vintage Scarf.  Paula Horlick is the CEO of this company and she is also a sponsor of my blog! Look to the left <--. The Vintage Scarf is offering a 20% discount to all of my readers using the code Shalanda20!! You may also remember The Vintage Scarf from my  2nd Blog Giveaway?  Not only are the items she has to sell on her website wonderful (includes vintage jewelry too), but they are extremely affordable!! I literally wish I could buy everything they have to offer! Ha! Make sure you come back to my blog later this week for a full post on Paula and The Vintage Scarf and her other online boutique; Miss Magnolia Resale!

Soooo the scarf is so adorable with its black and white circles. I instantly thought of poodle dresses and polka dot day dresses from the 50s and 60s.  I wanted to stick with the colorscheme of the scarf but keep it the focus of my outfit. I actually started off with a black tank, but thought "TOO MUCH BLACK", so last minute I switched to this cream tank, which I must say was the better choice! I was running late today, so I didn't do my usual stalk of Wendy's "25 Ways to Wear a Scarf" video to pick one for this scarf, so I did my go-to knotted style for it. The last added touch was the addition of the red pumps.

WHAT I WORE: Picnic Time!

Sunday, June 26, 2011 - by Shasie · - 58 Comments

Yellow | Everybody, Everywear

Sometime last week, I was reading Natalie's blog Natalie Off Duty, and she had pictures up from a blogger picnic that she attended in Central Park in Manhattan. It looked so cute, and I started thinking to myself; "When's the last time I've attended a picnic?" It's been years!! So I decided to organize one with my friends here in Houston. The only difference is, in Houston, it's almost too hot for picnics but we managed to survive somehow. :-)

Dress: Old Navy
Belt: Burlington
Shoes: Payless
Hat: Target
Lipstick: Impassioned (MAC)
Necklace: Vendor at Houston International Festival

I knew this was the dress I was going to wear to the picnic as soon as I came up with the idea to have a picnic. It's so perfect for this occasion! I have lines underneath it because I was wearing my bathing suit under it. I picked Houston's Discovery Green Park because they were hosting Target's World's Largest Sprinkler, so we thought we'd be running through it.................................Well the sprinkler was so whack. It was no more than a glorified lawn sprinkler, and even had the nerve to have less water pressure than a lawn sprinkler!!  Not only that, but there was a LINE to go through it...are you kidding? I just wanted it to be open with people allowed to run through it freely. I was not about to WAIT IN LINE, IN THE HEAT for this thing!

Luckily for us, Discovery Green was built with it's own water jets, that "kids" run through all the time, and they were still running, so Natalia and I went through the below sprinklers instead with all the little kids, which was way more fun than walking through the Target Sprinkler.
