No Outfit Posts....Roadtrip

Hey guys,

I forgot to mention it to my ETSS dolls (i did put it on HairGurl though...) The hubs and I are traveling on a roadtrip right now...In Memphis now so you know I'm happy. :D We've said goodbye to the DMV area and are heading to our new home in Houston, TX. Will post if I have time...I took some outfit photos and mistakenly deleted all the photos. So unfortunately, you won't get to see any of my Atlanta pics and the last days I spent in VA. :-( So pissed but I'm over it now. I'm just going to take even more photos now!!! I'll be back next week with photos galore.

The hubs helped me with this outfit. :-) I've worn this tiered dress so many times and this time I tried on a belt w/ it and fell in love. He said the belt made my waist look even smaller.

Dress-Macy's- $20
Belt- Thrifted for 99 cents
Shoes- From my birthday pics, free. :-)
Feather necklace-from F21....can't remember the price, but I've featured it here at ETSS before.

Night ya'll! :-)

My Little Black F21 Dress

Sitting down ready to eat!

I don't know why I was looking like that...

So the hubs and I went to a birthday party at the W's rooftop restaurant called POV. It was really nice....for the time we were there. They evacuated the entire building because a transformer caught on fire either by the hotel or under it....

I remember taking pics on the rooftop & then seeing smoke. It was crazy. People were coming out in their bathrobes from the shower. All we kept thinking was, "what about the food we ordered??". LOL, that's how hungry we were! The group ended up going to another restaurant nearby and we had a lot of fun.

This outfit is totally sponsored by Forever- the earrings, the dress, AND the shoes. The bracelet was $10 and it was from Bijoux Terner. For the life of me I can't remember how much the dress was...I think it was around $20. I bought it in December...The earrings were about $6. The shoes were around $25-30. I purchased the shoes & earrings with a gift card so free for me. ;-) I can't remember if I got the dress with the gift card too.....Anyway, that's the outfit. I would've worn this with my F21 belt had it not been stolen/lost in baggage claim.

Thrifty Stars: Drew Barrymore

The hubs just called my attention to this article on Yahoo. Drew Barrymore scored this cute little number for $25 at a thrift store.

According to the article, she paired it with $760 Yves Saint Laurent "Tribute" pumps. Drew looks very cute in her thrift store find! I love to see stars being thrifty. Just because you have more money, doesn't mean you have to spend more money. ;-) -K.D.

My Go-To Summer Dress

Now you all may remember this dress from being one of my very 1st thrift store purchases a few months back. I snagged it for $6. Here's the post from when I 1st wore it. Ya'll, I wear this dress all the time now. It's a great dress if you don't feel like putting together an outfit & you just want to run out to the store or something. :-) I initially wore it with the straps tucked this....

...but I find myself wearing it more and more like this....with the straps around my neck.

Here's a closer look at my silver birthday nails!

I forgot to tell ya'll about these shades I bought not too long ago from A.J. Wright for $4. I wear them all the time now....
And here I am....ready to go! There's the spy bag again for a pop of color. You can barely see my silver flip-flops. Got those from Target for $2.50.

This dress is just sooooo comfortable. I'm going to miss throwing this on when it gets too cold. What's your summer go-to look? :-) -K.D.

2010 Birthday Outfit :-)

So here's my birthday outfit! Yesterday, I turned 28 (i'm getting so old) and the hubs took me to Texas De Brazil. We hadn't gone in a year so this was a very nice treat. ;-) To prepare, we didn't eat hardly any food all day. It's basically all you can eat yummy Brazilian steak.

Before you ask, yes that's a rust spot over my toe, lol! #ohwell I wanted you guys to see the shoes. I put lotion on my feet, but that spot is my "problem area".

Check out my birthday finger nails! :-) I wear this necklace soooooooooo much.

Most of the items in this post you've already seen. The brown dress was a dress, but I mostly wear it as a skirt.

Blazer- My favorite blazer (thrift store)-$1

Dress- Purchased years ago for $10

Belt- Liz Claiborne-$2.90 (thrift store)

Bracelets- Same beauty supply store bracelet and my Leo bracelet. ;-) The bss bracelet goes with so many outfits!

Necklace-Which is actually 3 necklaces together. My sis bought this for me for $3.

Shoes- Free from my sis. ;-)

Spy Bag- Free from the hubs.

That's it! Now I'm preparing for the hubs birthday this weekend. Yes, our birthdays are 5 days from each other. 2 Leos, lol! Off to take a bubble bath.

New Canon/Flower Power Romper

So my dreams came true and my hubby bought me a camera for my birthday! :D It's a Canon and I LOVE IT. I'm still reading the manual and getting the hang of it so the photos might not be up to par yet...but they'll be getting there. This is the other romper I've had basically since before summer started. I bought it at 579 for $5!!! Yep! The only thing I don't like about it is that it accentuates my flat chest-ness. :o We celebrated my birthday this past Saturday because it's going to be on boring Tuesday. Boooooo. I will be going to Texas De Brazil for my actual birthday and I'm looking forward to it. Their food is SO GOOD and I get to eat for free because birthday meals are complimentary (with the purchase of a dinner).

Oh yeah and I have on my Nine West heels that were given to me as a gift. You've seen them in other posts.....

At Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in D.C....I think Tyra is definitely taller than that in real life.
One of my fave places to eat in D.C. is Ben's Chilli Bowl! :D Hands down-they have THE BEST chilli dogs. I was stuffed after eating here, lol.

So what do ya'll think of the romper??? I still have one romper left that I haven't rocked...might wear it tommorrow. ;-)
