Tuxedo

Hey guys,

I feel like I’ve been away for months! Thanks so much to all of you who have left messages of condolences here on the blog and via IG. I truly appreciate your words of support and encouragement. These last few weeks have been very tough on my family and I. My dad has been laid to rest in his beloved country of Haiti and he is surely at peace.  I am trying to get back to somewhat of a normal pattern again but it’s taking me some time so please bear with me if I disappear every now and again. This healing process is something else 🙂

I had this post ready some time ago and since then the dresses I linked have sold out. My apologies, but the look pretty much works with any LBD you have in your closet. Can I tell you how much I love this vest!! It can be worn with so many other pieces, and I really like the touch of dressiness it can add to any look, be it a tee and jeans with heels, a dress or a pair of shorts..heck even some tights. The lapel gives it a tuxedo appeal and I added a couple of brooches to dress it up further. I look forward to visiting my friends out in blog land this week. Take care everyone 🙂

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

Tuxedo Vest + Distressed Denim

Happy Monday Friends!

I hope you are enjoying a day off.  Let’s not forget the real reason for this holiday! Please take a moment to thank a vet or  soldier on active duty for their service to this country. Take a moment to say a prayer for those who gave their lives for our freedom and rights.

Today’s look features a long white with black trim vest which I think dressed up this otherwise casual look of a plain white pocket tee, heels and distressed jeans. I’ve wanted a long vest for sometime now and I’m really pleased with this one. Being that it is black and white, I can pair it with so many other looks. Over a sheath dress, or with a graphic tee and denim for example.  I am also really wanting a sleeveless trench coat and an olive utility vest but can’t seem to run into any ones I like.  So I guess I’ll just have to keep scouring the net 🙂 See you soon friends, make it a good one!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!
