OOTD #44 – A Touch Of Animal

Hello there,
It’s the first day of October! This is my absolute most favorite time of year, October to December! Cool crisp days, leaves falling and changing, festivals, fairs, and football and then turkey and lots of shopping and presents. Oh and let’s not forget holiday decorating, yep I start in October! Don’t judge…LOL

On to today’s OOTD, an easy breezy outfit – hi/lo tunic and black denim. I love the weight of this fabric. It’s a knit that is very fluid and lightweight. The purple color is so rich and perfect for fall. To make the tunic a bit more jazzy, it’s trimmed in animal print on the neck and arms. Just enough to give the outfit a little interest. I paired with a big satchel and some old heels. You could also pair this animal print tunic with leggings and knee boots for a more casual look.

I’m going to pull out all my fall decor! What’s your favorite time of the year?

More OR Less…Decorative Accents

More OR Less

Hello,
The last day September, three more months until year’s end. Oh my word, where did the last nine months go?? But, there’s always time to decorate. Today’s More Or Less features decorative accents, you know the icing on your home decor cake. Decorative accents give any room that little oomph that makes your decor stand out. These decorative spheres are perfect accents for the living room, dining room, or even a bedroom. These two are very similar with very dissimilar price tags. I like both of these but that $10 buck price tag is calling me. The More version is from Williams-Sonoma Home and is sold out! I can’t imagine who paid that kinda money for that kinda thing. The Less version is from Target, but due to its popularity, it is only available in stores….

The Weekend…Brunchanista

Empire State South

Hi Pretties,
How was your weekend? Has everyone recovered from last Thursday night’s tv watching? Are you ready for this week? Too much fun! I’ve posted a fair amount on the blog about brunch. It is my favorite meal of the week! Luckily, for brunch lovers like me, The A has so many great restaurants to choose from. If you’re in The A and want an inexpensive brunch option, try Empire State South….

Friday Fan

Hi pretties,
I’m am so done, from 8-11 I was in a trance watching ABC tv. I’m a big fan of Shonda Rhimes and today I’m totally pooped from all the craziness of last night’s television watching. I still love Grey’s and Scandal. Not sure about How To Get Away With Murder, but I will give it another week. Poor Friday, nobody will be watching your shows because, we’re still recuperating from Thursday’s shows. Oh and the fashion was amazing as usual! I’m off to get a BIG cup of coffee to keep me awake…is it 5:30 yet??

Have a restful weekend!

Hi,
The Summer travel season has ended, but Fall is also a great time to getaway to a fun spot. You can find lots of festivals and state fairs going on all over the U.S. right now. For these trips, wouldn’t it be cool to have some fun luggage. Novelty luggage is the perfect way to show your style and personality. Hardside luggage lends itself to different types of “skins” that can depict virtually anything! These fun luggage pieces are all from ebags and on sale!

Luggage Sale & Clearance: Up to 75% off MSRP, Shipped Free! Samsonite, Delsey, American Tourister, High Sierra & more!

Where are you going this Fall? I'm thinking the mountains or a nearby casino, hey maybe both! Oh #TGIT, are you ready for Scandal??

Hi Pretty Scandalistas,
Yes, it is that time – Scandal is BACK! I for one am happy to see the return of Olivia Pope and her Gladiators! I love this show for the twist and turns and downright cray-cray shenanigans of Papa Pope, Mama Pope, Fitz, Cyrus, and my fave Huck!. But I really love Scandal fashion even more. So today to pay homage to the ever trendsetting style of Olivia Pope, I’m suited up!…

More OR Less…Metal Beds

More OR Less
Hi Pretties,
How’s the week treating y’all so far? You already know I’m counting down to Friday at 5:31pm! But until then, today’s More OR Less is all about metal beds. The metal construction and simple lines give these two beds a less traditional look, but not extremely masculine or even feminine. The styling is really close on these beds. The biggest difference is the finials and center detail on the More option. For these two beds, it would just depend on how much money you would be willing to spend. I’m torn, but since money is an object, I’d go with the Less version. If I was decorating a room around the finials, then I would definitely choose the More version.

Which one would you choose?
