Must you go? I refuse to give up on us.

NO, you can’t leave me. What will I do? I…I just can’t… no I refuse to give up on you. I refuse to give up on me. I refuse to give up on US! No one can ever replace you, and I don’t want anyone to replace you. We have been through so much, and now you have to leave me.  ::kicks stuff Scooby:: NO, I will not let this happen, and I will not let you go. ::runs to sob into pillow::

Pretty dramatic, huh. Well, this is how I have felt lately over a pair of nude colored shoes that I own. YES, shoes. A cute pair of

The shoes, I have, are a cute dupe of these shoes.

nude platform shoes.  When I say “nude,” I do not mean the color beige. I actually mean nude as in my skin tone nude. Anywho, I have had these shoes for a while now it has come to that time where I have to let them go. See the little black tips on the bottom of the heels have broken off.  I don’t know when, how, or why this happened, but the little black tips are gone, and now I am stuck here reminiscing over what was, and what could have been.

I only own one pair of brown pumps, so it is hard for me to let go. I really want to take the shoes to go get fixed, but I wonder if that is a waste of money. Maybe, I could just use that money and go get a pair of brand new shoes.  I do love a pair of brand new shoes, however, I really like these shoes, and I had them for some time, so I know that I will not be able to find another shoe like them. Whhhhhy do the good shoes have to go so earlier?

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year everyone!! Yea, I know I am sort of late, but like they always say “Better late than never.” I spent the last two weeks visiting my family back in my hometown, and I must say that I enjoyed every single moment spent with them. While back home, I learned a few things: 1) My little sister has an excellent sense of style. 2) There is life without cable, Internet, or a cellphone. 3) No matter how hard you try, if you are in a house full of sick people, then you will get sick. I am still battling this cold that was passed down from my sister, to my mom, to me. This year I decided not to focus on any particular New Years resolution. In all honesty, I just want to aim towards being a better person then I was yesterday, and if I follow that then hopefully everything else will fall into place.

How was your holiday and New Year? Did you make a New Years resolution or are you winging it like me this year?

Alicia Keys Rockin’ Louboutin on 106 & Park

Photo Credit: Prince.org

On her recent visit to 106&Park, Alicia Keys was rocking a gorgeous pair of Christian Louboutin shoes. When I first saw the shoes I thought A. Keys was rocking a pair of leather pumps, with leather leggings, and I was in a deep side eye until I found out that those shoes were actually over the knee boots.

Available: Sak Fifth Avenue

Yes, over the knee boots, and for a hefty price of $2,295 you can be the owner of a pair of Christian Louboutin Gazolina boots. Now, if you are like me and you do not have over $2,000 to spend on a pair of boots, then check out this cute dupe.

Available DSW

These are the Penny loves Kenny Tidal Thigh High boots and they can be purchased at DSW for the price of $99.95. So for a percentage of the cost of Christian Louboutin shoes, you can own a pair of boots that look similar to the pair Alicia Keys was seen wearing.

I guess you can call it Winter in Florida.

The weather in Florida can get really funny sometimes. Within one day the weather can change from a cold hard freeze to a hot summer’s breeze. I definitely had my share of times where I bundled up for the morning chill only to end up burning up in the afternoon heat.

When I know that I am in for one of those funky weather days, I try to avoid wearing heavy clothing underneath my jackets. I try to keep it light and simple like the shirt seen in the photos.

 

 

 

Yeeeeaaaa, done with pictures!!!

Payless Shoes, Express tights, Jcpenney’s shirt, shorts, and scarf.

If you live in an area like mine, the best thing you can do is switch between light and heavy clothing when layering your outfits. It gives you room to strip down into something more comfortable when the temperatures start to rise.

Thanks for reading.
