Playtime is Over

Finally found the perfect pair of vintage Levi's to make into cut-offs. Picked them up at my home away from home, Edgewood Thrift and took a razor to those bad boys! Wore these for the first time on a day out with my god children. We ended up at a playground at Chinquapin Park where I used to play myself. Hadn't been there in 15 years but it made me feel like a kid again.

Everything Thrifted from head to toe.

Scarfing it Down

A quick fix for any stale hairdo. You know what u mean by stale, right? A hairdo that has run its course, but for some reason you just can't let it go yet. Just add a scarf and make it all over! All my scarves are thrifted, whih makes it even better.

Some time after the name change from Mansion to Mirage it got really hood up in there O_O ...I dont know what happened but anyway, I was on the way out here to celebrate another friend's birthday. Despite the ratchetry, I danced all night and was hot as crap in my leather skirt...aduh. This isnt new to me though, I never leave the house without at least 2 layers, so sue me...

Thigh-High Thuggin

On the way to a friends game night/bday party/ house party. My curls were getting kinda crazy here! I tried to mix the sweet floral print of the dress with the rugged look of the boots. Successful? ...I think so. lol Ive been itching to wear these thigh highs all winter, but never had the occasion to. Finally hit the jackpot with the game night :)

Purple Rain

On the way to see "Think Like A Man" which was actually a good movie. It was nothing like I expected, which was a Tyler Perry-esque male bashing movie. It turned out to be nothing of the sort, it was actually funny and entertaining and I didnt feel embarrassed to watch it. Score 1 for Steve Harvey! I wore my bubblegum pink Doc Martens that Ive been lusting over for a while now, since the weather was dreary and I wanted to brighten things up a bit. Still rocking my bday curls from 3 weeks ago. I feel like this is the longest Ive gone without washing my hair in ages, but some curly-ques are still holding on! My scalp is screaming for a cleansing but Ive been too lazy. Hopefully Ill get it done before  the weekend.

Lady Bug

New favorite red lippy! MAC Cherry lip pencil under MAC Lady Bug lipstick. I'm going gaga for this color combo! It was gifted to me by my bestie two weeks ago and I've been wanting to wear it everyday since, even tho there's been no occasion to haha. I wore it to grab sushi with a friend at Aloha Sushi in downtown Batimore on Charles St at Preston. I really liked Aloha, there wasn't all the fake trendiness and pretentiousness which I usually feel across the street at XS. My lip color lasted the entire night through all the sushi, sashimi and blotting with my napkin. Thumbs up!

My, My, My, Midis

My friend and I unintentionally dressed alike for our thrifting trip to the Goodwill on Reisterstown Rd in Owings Mills, MD. I think tank tops and colorful bottoms are my spring/summer uniform for 2012. Also still very into loafers and oxfords. I call these my "honey mustards" haha... By the way my flexi rod set from last weekend is still truckin!!!
