Yay!!! Publicity!!!

What I’m Wearin’…  string-of-pearls


You probably can’t see this photo very well (I got to get me a new camera!) but this is just a casual outfit that was thrown together for work!  It’s sooooooooo cold outside now!  I put on grey leggings underneath this Calvin Klein dress and covered up with a jean jacket.  I wore my silver buckle flats which nearly killed me because they are peep toe!  ahh well!  Anyway, my hair was slicked back into a ponytail and there’s a feather stuck in it!  I’m soooo lovin’ feathers this season!  Finished this look off with my silver pyramid deco earrings!

The bargains:

Dark Wash Jean Jacket from Lane Bryant, $25

Calvin Klein Dress in Cobalt from Ross, $30

Silver Buckle Flats from Belks, $14

Pyramid style earrings from Claire’s, $0.50

Grey Leggings from Lane Bryant, $6

Orange, Purple, and Brown Feather from Local Beauty Supply, $2

All together:  $77!

Not bad, not too good either!  all well, these pieces were bought over time.  I’ve had the jean jacket for about ten years!

What I’m Hearin’…antique_radios

  hmmmm…….What has been the song in my head and in my heart for this week?  My faith has been tested a lot these past few days.  This song helps me remember what is important- to let the light of God shine through you!  Even when I want to get upset, I have to remind myself that anger, jealousy, backbiting, gossiping, and the etc., blocks that light.  I hope you enjoy this!

  1. hey Kristen! never feel like you "have to dress like..." to a wedding! Just know don't wear a white dress! lol. Also, if you know what color the bridesmaids are wearing, try not to wear that color! Helpful hints:
    daytime weddings-don't wear a black dress but you can wear just about anything you wear to church.
    night weddings- cocktail attire. Black dresses are always welcome! If there is a fun reception to follow, don't forget to wear comfortable heels that you can get down with on the dance floor with a cute groomsman!

  2. Hi Kirsten! Just a note to say I think your blog is stunning!
