I never go home after work when I wear this dress. I just love to collect my complements! Its always a crowd pleaser, so last week I decided to stop by the farmers market on my way home after work.

I met up with my friend and we walked around. Right away someone came up to me and told me they liked my dress. My friend told me it looked so retro, yet so high fashion. I told her it must be the high collar style that everyone likes and she told me that it must be the checkered pattern…or maybe how great the dress fits me! lol

She asked me where I got the dress, so I had to let her in one my secret………

You can find the dress here

It was beautiful outside this past Saturday. My friend called me to tell me to come out!

I couldn’t decide what to wear at first. I wanted to be comfortable but still look funky. I decided to pair my new stretch-denim shorts with a plain t-shirt,  my clutch bag, earrings, and sunglasses. I knew the perfect pair of shoes to wear…comfortable and funky!

I took the bus to enjoy the fresh air instead of the subway.

As I walked around I saw a stoop sale where they had the most amazing record collection. I saw records from Donna Summer, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, and even Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff! It was so much fun to look through all the old records and reminisce.

Then I decided to go people watching! I walked a few blocks to my favorite outdoor summer spot. Of course, people-watching just isn’t complete without a cold drink. I got a drink and enjoyed the night and watched all the fashionable people walk by. But all that walking made me hungry!

At the end of the day, I decided to take a cab home instead of the bus. I had a great Saturday 🙂

I had my birthday this past weekend and left the house with a smile, ready to start my day. I took a nice stroll through Brooklyn and stumbled upon a cute vintage store. I found these really cool wooden bracelets that looked great with my outfit. I couldn’t resist the great price and had to have them! Then I went to PetSmart to look at kittens. I thought about adopting one and even played with the kittens! They were soooo cute.

After walking around Brooklyn and playing with the cats, I got hungry. The sun was going down so I decided to grab a slice of NY pizza and bring some home. I stopped at “Not Rays Pizza” on the way home and walked back with the smell of pizza calling out to me. I couldn’t wait to sit down, kick off my shoes, and eat my slice.
