Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

This morning I jumped out of bed when I realized it was Friday….tomorrow I can sleep in – yay!  I am such a sleepy head, I never get enough sleep – sometimes I am tired of being tired.  Commuting back and forth to work 1 & 1/2 hours each way every day really takes a toll on me and my car.  Tomorrow I am sleeping in until noon!!!

How many of you remember  Elvis Presley’s hit, Blue Suede Shoes – well this is my version of the shoe, actually booties and they are much nicer than what he sang about.  If you do remember Elvis, what was your favorite song or movie, I liked Blue Hawaii.

Wednesday, my son’s Business Class went on a Field Trip to Macy’s in NYC, he purchased a pair of Nike Sneakers and this T-Shirt which I thought was really nice.  I can’t wait until he no longer wants it because I’d love to wear it!

Hello friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday, I hope you are having a productive and stress free day.  Last Saturday at GW Boutique aka Goodwill there was a 50% off all clothing sale.  I had thrifted the day before on Black Friday and saw a jacket that I liked, however, didn’t want to pay $8.00.  I decided to wait and if it was there the next day it was meant to be, it was as well as a few other items that are perfect to wear to work.

Have a fantabulous day – Smooches!

 

Hello friends and Happy Tuesday.  Today’s outfit is a dress that was previously worn in August, also on a Tuesday (here).  Transitioning it from summer to autumn by adding a faux leather jacket and peep toe shoes replaced with leather pumps.  The jacket was thrifted from Goodwill and the pumps are Carlos Santana, which I didn’t realize when I found them at The Salvation Army.  These pumps are classic, timeless and very comfortable.

If you follow me on Instagram (ablake48) you know that I’m participating in #pinkfor31days, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  We are wearing pink nail polish for the month of October and I started with Revlon’s Fuchsia Fever.  I’ve lost 2 cousins and an aunt to this deadly disease and have 5 cousins who are breast cancer survivors.  A co-worker is now fighting her second bout after being in remission for over 10 years!  If  you are over 40 and haven’t scheduled your annual mammogram yet, please do so today, I’m scheduled for next week.

 

Have a fantabulous day and don’t forget to schedule your mammogram appointment – Smooches!

Instead of attending a Fashion Night Out (FNO) event, I went thrifting at the Salvation Army in Wilmington and found a few fall pieces. I am not sure of their pricing policy or if it’s the same at all locations, but everything here ended in .99 cents. The clothing and shoe prices are a bit higher than Goodwill but less expensive than a Consignment shop.

Issac Mizrahi For Target Skirt – $4.99

Briggs Harvest Suede Skirt – new with tags from Sears – $7.99 (blue tag = 50% off) – $3.99

Talbots Green Suede Skirt – $5.99

Blue Skirt – $4.99 (blue tag 50% off) – 2.49

Clairborne Mens Jacket – $9.99

Leather Loafers – $5.99

Leather Pumps – $7.99

If you are like me, you are NOT ready for back to school ~ not ready for going back to the routines ~ not ready for going back to the early morning regiment ~ not ready to go back to the homework, tests and projects.  I know this too shall pass, but give me just a few more months to adjust and I’ll be happy!

Malik will be a Junior in High School so all he needed was new sneakers, a jacket and shirts & other than a backpack and according to him a car (yea right) we are done.  I don’t need to buy school supplies because I’ve have a full stock which was purchased in bulk at the end of the season at Walgreens.

August 28th is knocking at the back door –  Malik is ready – mommy isn’t

Jacket, Sneakers, Shirt and Jacket – Burlington Coat Factory

Now is the perfect time to take advantage of the end of the season sales and clearance racks.  Sleeveless dresses can easily transition into the fall by simply adding a jacket or blazer.  Throw on an over sized knit sweater, change from open toe sandals to tights and boots and  the dress can be worn well into the winter months.  Here are a few dresses that I found at Ross for $12.99, and Burlington Coat Factory for $16.99, some of which will definitely be worn during the cooler months.

Skirt – $14.99 regular price

Loved but didn’t purchase this tie dye print skirt

 

 

This dress was one of three purchased in May 2009, to wear to my grandmother’s funeral – RIP Mama!  Blue was her favorite color and I wanted to wear something blue but ended up wearing the traditional funeral black.  It has been hanging in my closet ever since because it has a short cropped jacket and ribbon belt which makes it look very matronly.  Today I decided to wear it but without the jacket and ribbon belt and it’s now one of my favorites.
