Black Out Challenge (Day 6)


Not wearing black is getting easier and easier every day...(Not really)...it just sounds like I should say that at this point:) I have no idea how this outfit came together but it was a last minute decision and I liked the gray/red combo. I could have worn my gray tights but wearing hosiery/tights of any kind aren't the best feeling for me. I always feel a tinge of claustrophobia. I went through a phase where I was rocking textured tights a few weeks back but I think I'm over it now. I need to breathe:)

Red American Apparel Circle Scarf, Gray Sweater Dress (gifted), Target Belt, Red Steve Madden Shoes, F21 Cardi/Vest




That zebra bag is not my purse...it's my lunch bag. Isn't it too cute! Although I detest packing lunch in plastic bags, I'm not above it. But when I stumbled upon this lunch bag...I had to have it. It even came with "stay-fresh" containers. Bingo!


I am mentioning the lunch bag only because I actually do eat lunch. I don't know who these bloggers are who are running through the fields taking pictures of themselves chasing butterflies and unicorns all while exposing their rib cage bones, rocking Chanel Booties with the hollows of their cheeks all sucked in. Don't get me wrong, I am uber jealous because I want to frolic and skip for a career but this blogger eats. Sometimes too much.


I have a job where I don't get to go to fancy petite cafes and walk through Time Square (hater alert)...I am packing a turkey sandwich with Frenchy's mustard, cheese, bacon, spinach and tomatoes. I am making my own trail mix out of Cheerios, almonds, sunflower seeds, and raisins all while sneaking an Oreo or four.


So, if I am forced to be just a regular person, I had to show you how regular people rock their lunches:)(he he he)


P.S...My sister just called me to ask if I carry the lunch bag around like a purse....Ummm no...I just was showing it for blogging purpose.

An American Apparel scarf! Jealous! If I had disposable income, all my accessories and tee shirts would come from there. And speaking of haterism, Ladybug and I have a brunch date tomorrow at a "fancy petite cafe" and then are taking the train into the city to visit a friend at her fancy theater job on 42nd St.

Hey lady, yes love the splash of color, especially the shoes! That's the great thing about button up shirt dresses, they can pull double duty when you layer and make your look interesting and fun. Another great look, keep 'em coming!
