Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Please pray for those injured and killed in yesterday’s building collapse at The Salvation Army in Philadelphia!

Today is another day that the Lord hath made and I will rejoice in it!  I’m feeling vibrant and thrifty in my $20.00 outfit, yes, this entire outfit cost me 20 bones!

Hello friends and Happy Sunday – be blessed today and always!
What a beautiful day, it’s amazing how good you feel when sunshine bathes your face especially after a long week! I hadn’t been to church in over a month so I was up bright and early this morning even with another dull headache.

Today’s outfit is totally thrifted, sleeveless LBD and Houndstooth blazer from Goodwill and Carlos Santana leather pumps from the Salvation Army.

Happy Veteran’s Day and have a fantabulous afternoon – 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!

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday, a day that we’ve never seen before nor will we ever see again so make the most of it!

Remember when I purchased this dress from Avon (here), well the miracle is, I had to exchange the large for a medium and it fits!  I can’t wait to order it in red for the holidays…may opt for a large if it’s after Thanksgiving!  This evening I am attending a Financial Seminar which was postponed from last week because of the tornado watch.  I wanted to wear something comfortable and wrinkle resistant to stand up for 12 hours and this definitely fits the bill.

Have a fantastical day – Smooches!

On Friday, after Tayair and I left the cemetery we stopped at Spencer’s Bazaar Flea Market and then Rodney Village Shopping Center.  There will be a separate post for Spencer’s Bazaar that features unique items made and sold by a high school friend.  Our next stop was to the Goodwill store where Gloria once worked before she passed.  I walked around for almost 30 minutes and could not find anything, eventually I found a belt for $1.00.  Within the shopping center which is really a strip mall there was Beauty Max, a large beauty supply store.  Hubby needed new hair clippers and I was looking for a “weekend wig”.  After finding a cute FreeTress unit on clearance for $19.99, a lace front, the hair clippers and some nail polish we decided to head home.

As we were leaving I noticed a store called Citi Trends, I had never heard of it but decided to stop in and check it out.  The clothing was along the lines of urban gear for the younger crowd, but I found a cute pencil skirt, a cuff bracelet and a spike ring.  (posted on Instagram @ablake48).  Tayair wasn’t interested in anything but I knew Malik would be, so on Saturday I let him drive us back down to check it out.  While he shopped I took time to look around and ended up getting these shoes and dresses.  Malik wore the Canvas Lace Ups and watch to school which is probably why he was so anxious on going today.

Malik’s Purchases

Purchased this FreeTress Wig (Lyon Girl) for $19.99

Orange jeans and lime tank – Goodwill // Loafers – Salvation Army

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.

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

Talbots Green Suede Skirt – $5.99
