black and white? .... boring? you tell me!

 Hello!  Back again!  
What I'm Wearin'!:
This is an outfit I wore to church a few weeks back.  I love a good bargain!  This white blazer I got from Macy's for $30!  I wear it a lot with the sleeze rolled up and i call it my "Miami Vice".  No need to explain that one.  This is one item in my wardrobe that I am soooooo glad I purchased.  I get a lot of wear out of it and it has held up pretty well!
Okay!  I'm not a sleeveless kinda girl but I figured I'd show you what only the dress looked like.  It was purchased from Cato's for $14.  Yay me!!!

These shoes come from an After Season clearance sale at Belk's last month for $12.  I thought they were really cute.  You can't see it in this picture but there is detailing on the shoe that went really well with the detailing on my dress.

You can see it a little better here (the pic is turned to the side...ahh well):

Well, whatcha think?

What I'm Lovin'!:

Jazzalynnez' Jewelry!!!  If you are on facebook, check her out!  A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Miss Jakalynne Jones, the founder and creator, who has been making her own jewelry since November of 2009.  She's a real sweetie and is known for her beautiful statement pieces such as necklaces, bracelets, bangles, belts, earrings, and rings!  Also, thanx to my special request, she's going to be making shoe clips as well!  Yay!!!  I adore you J and you'll be hearing from me again really soon!  Below are some pieces that I snagged at her last jewely breakfast party:

This stunning bracelet in purple jems and gold backsplash for $17.  Everyone there was so upset that I broke up the set!  Yes, i had a matching necklace but I fell in love with the bracelet!

This beautiful necklace sold to me for $8.  I always wear with it with my grey drape cardigan.  When my ensemble doesn't call for the blue that is inlaid in this piece, i just flip it over since it is all silver on the other side!

Here are some of the beautiful pieces that she has on her Facebook site and she has HUNDREDS more.  She can be contacted under Facebook as Jazzalynnez' and her prices are VERY reasonable.
