Pretty In Pink...

Well hello Wednesday!

How are all of my loves doing today? I hope your week has been pleasantly productive thus far. Mine has been exceptional. I've met a bunch of new blogger friends and even received a few collaboration offers for my blog. I'm too thrilled.

On the down side of things, today marks the end of my 10 day vacation period. It's back to work for me tomorrow. Uggh, the agony!! 

Anyhow, here's my outfit post of the week. I wore this getup a few weeks ago on a date with 'the dude' to see a Mike Epps comedy stand up. 

I knew that there was a possibility that it would be cold in the venue so I began with this thrifted Ann Taylor blazer ($.99) and worked around it.


First off, let me explain how pink was sooooo not one of my choice colors-until recently. I'm not exactly sure what it is about pink, fuschia, or any other combination of the hue but I'm definitely in love. 



I think my favorite part of this 'fit by far is this portion...

Heels-Steve Madden (via Ebay)
The shoes totally had me at hello. I originally saw these Steve Madden beauties in Ross maybe about 2 years ago. The only set back was that they didn't have my size. Also, the pair that I saw in Ross were slingbacks. I absolutely had to have these shoes so what did I do? I went to the old ye faithful EBay. I found them and I immediately bid on them. I believe I ended up paying $25 for them. Not bad for brand new Steve Maddens.


My next favorite part about this 'fit is the accessories...

Watch-NY & Co./Ring-Forever XXI
This killer statement necklace that I scored from Plato's for $5....


And these blue geek glasses that cost me 2 bucks from the Icing...


I just loooovvveee how accessories and small additions such as a patterned shoe, a statement necklace, and colored glasses can make an otherwise plain outfit look so festive, pretty, and PINK!

Pink Capris/Chambray-NY & Co.
Blazer-Thrifted (Ann Taylor)

What type of accessories/additions do you add to take your outfits 'over the top'?
Do share...

Thanks for reading!

  3. First of all, you have such a great figure that you look good in almost anything. Second of all, I love pink and fuchsia on black girls... something about it looks SO good. The whole outfit is so pulled together and chic, it doesn't look thrifted at all. Very polished.
