Outfit....... Friday.......... Fitness...... Various other shenanigans.

Welp, it's Friday.... and I'm pumped!!! :) Here's what I wore to work today....

Outfit Deets:
Shirt - ??? Sorry!
Skirt - Gabe's $6
Belt - Charlotte Russe $5
Shoes - Charlotte Russe $11.99 HOLLAAA

Soooo lovelies, this outfit was made in haste definitely before I knew how FRICKIN' COLD it was out today!! The wind chill has to be -1000 degrees or something ridiculous like that. I. Never. Exaggerate. Ever. :) Anywho, this shirt is awesome at the top with the lace detail in the back. However, if you don't cover it up, the bottom half kinda flares out a bit and I'm not a fan. On the other hand, I think the skirt works when it's high waisted. However, again not meant to be like that.... sooooo it's meant to be worn on your hips but it's like mid-calf.... hello, weird? So, I cinched it up and made this lovely little outfit. I'm pleased... then again, who doesn't love YELLOW!??!!?

Also 'Fitness Friday'.............
I bought the Nike+ that hooks into your Ipod and you put the other piece in the bottom of your Nike sneaker. It then calculates your distance while running, how many calories you burn, and talks to you like a friend. Haha... who wouldn't want Lance Armstrong telling you how FABULOUS you're doing on your run??? Also, when you plug your Ipod back into your computer, it automatically uploads the details of your workout right to Nike.com on your own personal profile. You can set up goals and it'll show you how far and how often you would have to run to achieve them. So, my "tip" for this evening.... If you are trying to get back into running/back in shape, you may want to spend the $30 and get yourself the Nike+. I totally verify it's a solid investment. And no, unfortunately, Nike is not paying me to say that. However, NIKE if you're reading this, I accept cash and check. Thank you.

Ciao bellassssssss!! Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Flowers and boots and purple and hoots....

Thank you all sooooooooooo much for all of the fab feedback on the last post!! You guys have been so wonderful!!! I'm sorry about the commenting problems! I changed it around a bit, so hopefully it's working now! :)

Outfit Deets:
Sweater - I don't remember? sorry.... lol.
Dress - Charlotte Russe $16
Purple tights! - Target $5
Boots - Charlotte Russe $17ish

So, here is my first ever "crazy" color tights outfit! I know it's really not that crazy.... lol. But it's the first time I'm not wearing black, gray, or tan tights. I'm oh so daring! :) I don't know how I feel about it... but I THINK I like it.... Thoughts?

Soooooo....... I need to measure the amount of interest ya'll would have in an ONLINE CLOTHING SWAP! I'm currently discussing it with another fab blog, and we're figuring out if it's possible. If we tried to host an online clothing/accessory/shenanigan swap, would you participate? In my delusions of grandeur, I'm thinking we get alot of people... all different shapes/sizes/styles/etc....... So I just want to know your thoughts! Kkkkkkkk

Questions... and the daily outfit

Here's my outfit for just heading to the mall and to lunch on a dreary day with friends!

Outfit Deets:
Black long sleeve v-neck - F21 $5ish
Cream tank - F21 $3.50
Black ripped "jeans" - F21 $17
Boots - Charlotte Russe $22.50

Ok, so here are some questions for my lovely readers or anyone that just happens to stop by......

1. Is my new layout strange? Does it evoke a feeling of not wanting to comment anymore? Or is it difficult to read on other browsers? It just seems like after I switched to this new "fancy" layout, the comments stopped. So I just wanted to make sure that the only problem was my lack of inspiration recently with outfits... *Sorry!*
2. Also, I have an OVER ABUNDANCE of clothes, shoes, accessories, etc. And I'm considering selling them on this blog at super, ridiculously cheap prices... I would like to know your thoughts about that. If I offered super cheap things of mine in quality condition, would you consider purchasing them?

I need ya'lls opinion! So please feel free to comment, email, send up a flare... whatever you wanna do to get the message to me. :)

Ciao bellassssssss <3

Hump day.... and I'm a Weeeener!

Outfit Deets:
Shirt - F21 cheap
Skirt - Maurice's $20ish
Necklace - Giveaway gift!

The necklace that I won from Rebekah! Thanks Girl!! Check out her blog here!

Today I was at the post office.... and I was picking up another giveaway present that I won (more info on that later!). The post man went back and got my package.... and it said my last name really big on it. Let's just say I have a very Italian last name. He comes back up to me and this is what ensues *loudly in front of the giant line of people*....

Post man: "Are you in the mafia?"
Me with puzzled look: "I'm sorry, what?"
PMan: "Your last name.... are you in the mob?"
Me............ still puzzled................: "Are you talking about Bernardo *Insert my last name here*"
PMan: "Yes."
Me: "Umm... no I don't think so.... But I guess you never know if I'm related to them."
PMan: "Ok, well I just wanted to make sure I wasn't gonna get whacked."
Me.... uhhhhhhhh.............: "OK.... welp......... see ya later."

If I really was in the mafia, would I really tell him?????? But these are the things that happen to me on a daily basis........ if I'm not some sort of black celebrity, then I'm in the mafia. :)

Ciao bellas!

Don't forget about my lovely GIVEAWAY!

Education???? and Tuesday Shoe Day

Tuesday Shoe Day! Say hello to these lovelies........ again, they are from Charlotte Russe. I believe they were around $17ish. They're two-toned and awesome! :) And I believe they make my legs look uber fab..... But what do I know!!! haha

And now for today's outfit................................

Outfit Deets:
Dress - *new* Target $22ish
Shoes - Charlotte Russe $17ish

So I bought this new dress from Target the other day... and I love it! :) It was simple, but I think it came together fabulously.

P.s. I'm considering going back to school to get a Master's in Education.......... I'm debating........ I'm trying to figure it out. But that is an option for me. I used to want to teach.... and then I changed my mind. And now, maybe I'm changing it again..... I don't know!!!! It's a tough decision..... I would either want to teach Business at a high school level (because I have a Bachelor's in International Business and I've been working in the industry) or I'd want to teach middle school age kids. So there's my dilemma...... If you're reading this and you're a teacher, let me know what you think about your profession and how I should go about figuring out all of this shenanigans! If you're not a teacher, what do you think anyway? :)

Ciao bellas!

P.s. Giveway is over on Friday.......... so ENTER NOW!! :)

Nudey Tights - F21 $3.50
Yellow pumptastics - Either Charlotte Russe or Gojane.com (I don't remember) Cheap!

Today is the day to seize the opportunity! Carpe Diem!!! You ask me why I say that...... I'm on a search for a new job. I've been working for a Sports Marketing firm for 2 years now, and I just think it's time for a change. Would I love to work in fashion?? YES. Would I love to somehow be involved in the industry?? YES. However, my area isn't really the Fashion Mecca of the world.... unless you count head coverings and homemade amish clothing as fashion forward...... maybe we can call it avant garde....... haha :) Anywhoozle, if any of you beautifuls here about something awesome in marketing/fashion/etc. in the PA area... please don't hesitate to let me know!

Anyways, my NEXT POST...... an AWESOME SPONSORED GIVEAWAY!!!!! Here's a hint......... Stools ....... teee heeee heeeee. :)
