Speak Louder

A couple of years ago we all fell in love with Karen Walkers cat eye sunglasses. Now she's stolen our hearts again, with her witty slogan clutches. I must say I love every single one of them. However, my personal favorite is the Faster, Better and Stronger Clutch.
You know you have a little room in your closet, for a clutch that speaks louder than your other bags? Make room and welcome this new clutch with open arms!

Yellow Brick Lane

Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I spent Saturday Morning, going through my clothing and accessories to let go of items I can no longer fit, never wore or was an impulse buy (I'll put some items online God willing by the weekend). I also packed away winter clothing, my wardrobe looks soooo much better! It's safe to say Spring is here!!! Today's weather is so beautiful!!
Outfit Details:
Vintage Jacket like this (here)
Gap Skinny Trousers
Mac Lipstick (here)
ZFSowho Bangles (here)
Christian Louboutin Pigalles 85 (Sold Out) Similar (here) + (here)
Vintage Salvatore Shoulder Bag similar (here) + (here)

I bought this Vintage Peplum Brocade Jacket about two years ago at a Vintage Sale in Leeds. It was love at first sight. I paid £18.00, and it was an impulse buy; however, it's an item I will probably never get rid of. I've gained a couple of pounds since then so it fits a bit tight but in two months or so it will be just perfect again! Gosh, how I miss being 24 and eating whatever I wanted and not gaining weight. Here comes the 30's!!!

Monochrome Lines

I have become that girl that tries not to buy items for the most part from Zara full price. I used to buy everything full price, then get upset when everything goes on sale, and I've barely worn them. I have items in my closet from two years ago with tags still on it! However, I love this Zara TRF dress (here); unfortunately being 5'11'' with thick thighs it did not look good, thus during the sale I'm going to buy two, then add the material of one to the bottom making it longer. I digress.
Outfit Details:
Blouse: Zara High Neck Sold Out Similar on sale (here) + (here)
Skirt: Zara High Waisted Skirt similar (here) get in pastel color (here)
Shoes: Miu Miu Heels Sold Out similar (here)

Vintage Earrings
I bought the skirt and white blouse from Zara during the January Sales and only wore them for the first time last week. I paired them with my Miu Miu Ankle Strapped Heels and Vintage Earrings to add a polished look. Have a Blessed Weekend!

Sweet Nothings

I think we all have favorite items that we start to wear less and less of because you want them to last for a long time. These Carven Sling back bow shoes are just that, along with my & Other Stories oversized clutch. However, after one of my favorite Fendi bags was stolen last year, I've learned these sweet nothings aren't meant to be taken too seriously. Sometimes we place too much value on material things that we start to place our happiness in things as opposed to our happiness in people we love and cherish, and our walk in life to salvation.

I used to be that person that thought 'things' would make me happy. I thought shoes would make me happy, designer bags would make me happy, a big house would make me happy, driving a nice car would make me happy. But one that isn't internally happy notices that these material things cannot fill an empty void within ones-self. I love all of the above and I am thankful everyday for all God has blessed me with; but I no longer think I need every single pair of designer shoes that comes out (although I never thought I needed them I just yearned for them) and no longer feel I need to wear something to be seen in a certain light.

Definitely dress how you would like to be addressed; however, don't let materialism take over the true meaning of your purpose in life and who you want to be. For after all, when we leave this beautiful earth nothing comes along with us. Although a new bag and pair of shoes does make me all giddy inside, I'm learning more and more not to place too much value on material things.
