Trying to be on my Kate Moss…Slip dress trend Revival

I always loved lingerie inspired clothes, and slip dress are no exception. I ALWAYS wanted a slip dress they are sexy and everything else in between. For the longest ZARA was selling them before they came out on trend again, but I never bought one until now. Maybe because I never got to shop at ZARA…..anyway I have two dresses. One is white lace (my favorite) the other is black ribbed material. It is also see thru so you can go from day to night in that dress, well both of my dresses you can. Today I wore my black dress with my lace top underneath, different from the typical t-shirt and slip dress outfit. This is the same dress I wore to the Beyonce concert.

Top and dress Express, shoes Old Navy, necklace New York and Company, purse Dooney and Bourke.


You can wear slip dresses with anything! Boots, jackets, kimonos, heels, leggings, fur coats, whatever you feel comfortable with wear it!

Work Week Wardrobe 

Guess who is being an adult and working two jobs? 

 
I feel real special, I am trying to work as much as I can before I go off to school. Speaking of school I visited Parsons about a week ago. They had open house and I finally seen the dorms, which I found out my dorm is 15 from campus. If I don’t lose weight when I go off then Jesus probably can’t even help me.  Ok back to my two jobs, so my full time I work in an office. Now I can wear some of my clothes I haven’t been wearing and show off my fashion. Yeah I don’t have a life like that where I go somewhere all the time, so I love having a job where I can dress up. Here are all well almost my outfits I wore this week.

Cultural Fest

So many things that goes on in the city that I never hear about or I forget. Friday I made sure I went to one of the events which was the cultural fest that is held downtown every year. I am not sure why they call it that when you don’t see a lot of cultural things at the fest but whatever (Harrisburg is very diverse though). I put on my festive caftan to wear since it sounds great to wear to an event like this and I was tired of trying on 50 different outfits.

Old Navy caftan, Aldo sandals, Coach purse

I wish I would of took a closer picture of my face, I did my eyebrows, put on some blue eyeliner (Mary Kay) and nude lipstick (Estee Lauder).



I had fun and ate too but me and my friend (aka fluff) left and took a walk through downtown and midtown. We found alot of bars, restaurants and even found out they have free outdoor movies from time to time. We are going to see Ferris Bueller on the 28th : ).

New York, New York

I have had so much fun the last past two days!!!!! I tell you New York is definitely a special and wonderful place. All the different people, cultures, lights, history…it is an amazing city. I have been to New York many times before but the last few times coming I really enjoyed my stay. My whole purpose of going there was to visit schools and talk to an advisor to see what classes i should take. The schools I was visitingwas no other than Parsons The New School and Fashion Institute of Technology. Sadly I did not get to go to FIT (long story) but Parsons was great!!!! I cannot wait to apply! So packing for this trip was easy, I stuck to comfortable basic clothes but that can be easily styled. Plus I knew we were going to do alot of walking, I was not trying to wear heels nor something that was not moveable so a t-shirt dress and a maxi dress was perfect. I got a new purse as well from the Coach outlet in Hershey, I love leopard so I had to get this small number. Walking arounf NY all day you would not want a big heavy purse.

First outfit up close

 My family and I got on a ferry to see Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Brooklyn and Washington (I think) bridge and I think ground zero….I forgot haha. We were suppose to walk the Brooklyn bridge and go to a rooftop bar *sigh*, I have to go with my friends next time to NY.

 Of course Mylove( my neice) makes a funny face.

 Us on the subway

 A nice drink at Dave and Buster’s

 Times Square

  

I finally got to ride the ferris wheel in the Toys R Us in Times Square. I WAS SUPER HAPPY TO GET THE MY LITTLE PONY GANDOLA ON THE FERRIS WHEEL. You guys just don’t know.. I LOVED my little pony when I was a kid, I use to beg my parents to buy me a toy. Guess where I got a my little pony toy from???? I was 4 years old at the pool and they had a bucket full of toys……. Trust me I am not a thief I just wanted that my little pony toy bad.

  

Day 2!!!


We are leaving the hotel!!! I really liked this outfit because it has like an “exotic” (i love that word) vibe to it. The wooden beads on the dress, the turban and the leopard purse, gives “life” to an all black dress. Some espadrilles would of been nice but of course that would of been uncomfortable.

Coney Island (took us forever to get to)

  


  
No more pics!!!!! *laughing*


  
On the beach


   Basically my neice and nephew’s first time to the beach. My nephew got to taste salt water, which I swear he wanted to taste. We are suppose to go to Myrtle beach and Atlanta next so, the kids are excited to go to another beach.



Wall art in the subway, I seen alot of beautiful mosaic pictures.

For the Rest of the Summer

I’m really excited abour how the rest of the summer is going to be. My family is suppose to take a road trip to Myrtle Beach and Atlanta in like two weeks. We are going to New York next week to visit schools and to hang out (cant wait to eat $1 pizza). Then I have to squeeze in going to Pittsburgh and Baltimore to see friends, Dorney Park, Rhode Island, Philadelphia, trip to the zoo in DC and whatever else. That is alot to fit in before going back to class which I think starts August 24th. I didn’t even sign up for classes yet! I have to do that, some important crap and plan my trip for my birthday, which is going to New Orleans. I can’t wait to eat some cajun food!

H&M top Express skirt New York & Company shoes Icing necklace Kate Spade purse

Oh I got my hair did, took the lady like 2-2 1/2 hours. I am so thankful that it is done because I was on the verge of chopping my hair off.


I swear I love this H&M top, it’s cute, comfy, stylish, and only cost $12. That was all. Yup. I actually have one of  those pretty full pleated skirts in an orange color to go with it….but for some reason that skirt makes me look heavier. So I have to find a solution for that problem before wearing that skirt. I got it from Express, it also comes in other colors which I think I might go get another one…even though it makes me look bigger. Back to the top, I love color mixing. The orange necklace  and the bright pink purse brings out the blue in the shirt. Cobalt blue always looks pretty when mixed with bright colors. Instead of just having all dark hues, bright and dark ones together bring each other out in some type of way. In another post I said that my summer wardrobe consist of alot of this color blue, I really want to bring that into my fall wardrobe with a coat this color : ).

In Allentown

I was stuck in Allentown today, do not ask why. I just always so happen to be in a mission, never for myself but for someone else. For those who never been to Allentown, that is where Dorney Park is located. I like Allentown, it is somewhat of a big city(last time I checked their pop. was in the hundred-thousands) but with a small-town feel. Some parts of the city looked stuck in time. Houses and buildings that have looked the same for years, long-time abandoned buildings that would give you nostalgia of a time before. It was nice being stuck up there for like five hours, wish I could of went to their mall.

New York and Co. Outlet Top
Express skirt
Random shoes
New York and Co. bracelet


Oh the top I have on, I really love the embellishments. I’ve been eyeing this shirt for some time, waiting for it to go down in price. I got it for twelve dollars : ).  I kept it with other silver pieces (or whatever) to give it a more “unified” look. I really don’t like mixing silver and gold together. Pants and some heels would of looked nice with the tunic too. I noticed cobalt blue is a big color for me this season with much of of my pieces being this color. I really love coblat blue, it is a very pretty color. Orange, yellow and green pair perfect with it.
