Have you seen that television commercial that shows several office workers “oohing” and “aahing” while looking at shoes on their computer screen? Well my co-worker and I had a similar reaction while checking out clothing at the online store Ultimate Outlet.

Ultimate Outlet is Spiegel’s online website that features clothing and accessories from Newport News and ShapeFX, a brand often worn by talk show hostess Wendy Williams.  The Ultimate Outlethas clothing, swimwear, lingerie, and accessories some priced as low as $5.00!

Many of the items are limited in their availability of sizes but I was able to find two Pencil Skirts for $8.00 each and after receiving a ‘first time shopper’ discount of $10.40, my total was only $5.60! #winning

The shipping of $6.94, was more than the total purchase price but I still got a bargain at $12.54.  I can’t wait to receive the skirts and then do an OOTD review post.  If you get a chance check them out and let me know what you think.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

Today is going to be another hot and steamy day, and this is actually Heatwave #4.  If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen the 5-day forecast for the Delaware Valley – HOT HOT and HOTTER.   The Meteorologist stated he preferred the cold and snow of winter but I love the heat of the summer.  Deciding what to wear isn’t a challenge since I’m in an air conditioned car or office most of the day and I was going to wear all black but decided to throw in a little pink.

Which do you prefer, the cold of  Winter or the heat of Summer?

Hello Friends, I hope you had a great weekend and an enjoyable tax-free Monday!

I woke up this morning thinking it was Sunday.  The weekend came and went with such quickness that I though we should have had one more day free from work, but no such luck!  We did manage to get some yard work done before the heat returns because it is not fun pulling weeds and trimming trees in intense heat.  I love this time of year with all the flora blooming but it reeks havoc on my son and his seasonal allergies.  This was my grandmother’s favorite tree and every Spring she’d look outside and say, “Toni, did you take a picture of that tree” – I do miss her so!

Mama, here’s a picture of that tree.

These trees are on the side of the house, they bloom then change green in about 2 weeks.

I didn’t wear them to work because my knee is still swollen, but thought they would work with this outfit – what do you think?

Hello Friends and Happy DST Monday!

Woke up thinking it would be a bright and sunny Pre-Spring day, instead it was a dark and damp foggy morning, oh well at least I woke up a lot of people didn’t! (Blessed). The day started out much like most people’s heads…a little foggy, why don’t we abolish Daylight Savings Time, it’s original purpose is no longer valid, what do you think?

Driving in fog is dangerous yet some people feel the need to speed which makes it even worse, unfortunately 6 teenagers lost their lives in Ohio due excessive speeding – God rest their souls! (News Report)

Which brings me to another reason why I don’t like car shopping for my son’s, too many young people die in car crashes. As most of you know my lil sis, Gloria was killed in a car crash in 1992, she was only 29, and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her!

Shake it off … shake it off… sorry, didn’t mean to bring you down!

Let’s clear the way for the outfit of the day.

What do you think about these pumps with this outfit – should I have worn the green cap-toe pumps from Target?

One good thing about Daylight Savings Time it will be a sunshine filled commute home!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Delaware dodged the snowstorm bullet yesterday, we only got a little rain and heavy winds and today the sun is shining with temps hovering above the 40 degree mark.  Next week’s forecast call for highs in the 50’s to low 60’s, Spring is right around the corner, and more sunlight with the start of Daylight Savings Time on Sunday – don’t forget to “Spring Forward”.

Today’s outfit includes the color turquoise, a color that I like in clothing but not in jewelry.  Turquoise, The Gem of Native Americans was very popular in the 60’s and early ’70’s,  it seemed as though everyone had a big Turquoise ring or necklace, both men and women.  Sapphire Green is supposed to be the “it” color for Spring, but Royal and Cobalt blues are my favorites as well as the lighter shades like turquoise because of their calming effects.

Calm, cool and collected – ready to take on the day!

How does your favorite color make you feel?

Do you remember my previous post about the clearance sales at JC Penney?  Did you go?  If not, I suggest you go there as soon as you can.  Today I went back to return the $5 skirt and ended up getting 2 more, a Worthington black and white tweet and a pencil skirt; a patterned scoop neck top and a Comfort Revolution sports bra for a grand total of $12.00!

There are $3/$5/$10/$12 and $14 clearance racks in every department, men/women and children clothing, jewelry, accessories, shoes, purses, lingerie, housewares, etc.  If you need a last minute Valentine’s Day gift, get to the mall with a quickness  because you will definitely get more for your money!

These pics were taken when I stopped in last month.

Have fun shopping & saving!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve

Are you ready for some snow? If so, “tonight is the night…is the night…is the night” at least it’s supposed to be in southern Delaware. Fortunately, they are forecasting less than an inch so the commute home may not be too bad.

Today’s outfit, Black and Burgundy is featuring a pair of Merona pumps and Mossimo belted pencil skirt from last night’s haul at Target.Image

If you follow me on Instagram (ablake48), you’d know that I start my mornings with a healthy, green, breakfast smoothie.  Today’s smoothie was made with spinach, carrots, banana, almond milk and Chia Seeds.

ImageI am so loving these heels, I may stop and get another pair in Taupe!
