Pinks, Greens, Newfoundlands and a 20 Dollar Ensemble




Hey all-
Besides the bloody effin heat outside, I am certainly enjoying this summer. Today I was (DRUM ROLL PLEASE), rushing to get to work and needed something super quick yet work appropriate to throw on. I had forgotten all about this dress but luckily I had JUST color coded and organized my closet by type of garment so I was able to reach for it in the small amount of time that I had. I bought this dress last year at.. another (DRUM ROLL please), Ross Stores in Virginia along with the shoes that I am sporting. My whole entire outfit cost me 19 dollars!!! I think that should earn me some award or something lol. I received this purse last year also but could never find just the right ensemble and time to wear it. I refuse to wear things JUSt to wear them and I believe in perfect chemistry even with my clothing choices. Im pretty happy I waited! Its a beautiful bag created by Kura Design and I think it really made this look! You can wear it with a long strap or carry it as a hand bag for something more dainty! Definitely check out the site for some unique handbags and best part, they are LOCAL. I love to support DC/VA/MD and emerging brands so this was a match made in heaven! I also think many AKA sisters would love this as its their sorority colors and its ultra classy just like them. ( Shout out to my fave AKA Kisha Lee) I decided not to wear much jewelry and kept the focus on my bag and dress so no "arm party" or "arm bling" or "wrist soiree" or "wrist bling" or "arm bbq" or "stack party" or "wrist kabob" in this post. Being such a avid poster on instagram, I always see the craziness that is the exuberant amount of different names people come up with to describe wearing a bunch of bracelets or watches on your wrist. It really was cute for a hot second with Man Repeller started it and of course I used the term before but now well..... we are doing just a TAD TOO much dont cha think???? LOL. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy the post and enjoy the rest of your day!!!! :)
