I’m so excited to ring in the new year! The last few months of 2015 have been a doozy to say the least. From my very recent cross country move to the loss of my baby girl Lizzy Lou, I’ve been super busy and on an emotional roller coaster. Needless to say, I’m forgoing any major pomp and circumstance this New Year’s Eve. I’m laying low. I plan to create a vision board, sip wine, and countdown til 2016.
I know I’m the small number that’s staying in for the night, but for those who are celebrating the start of the New Year,I have you covered for those last minute “What to wear woes.” Continue Reading »
Cheers to the freaking weekend! Even though I work Saturdays and Sundays I still get excited when Friday rolls around. I can’t help it!
Now that we’ve made it through the week I wanted to share more good news. I finally wore my a.n.a sheer embellished blouse I scored from J.C. Penney’s back in February. Of course it was on sale for $10. Continue Reading »
Every year I try to incorporate another look into my summer wardrobe. Last year it was more dresses and prints. This year I want to try solids on top of solids. I’m inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s double dose of pink she sported on American Idol. I’m also getting inspiration from style stars who have delivered fab fashion moments while donning all white looks.

I got the most amazing surprise this week. I was named InStyle.com’s “Reader of the Week.”Here’s the real surprise. I was actually named “Reader of the Week” on December 27th. I’m almost a month late to this fabulous news, but I have a good reason. From Thanksgiving through the New Year’s Holiday I was busy packing my life away in little brown boxes. I moved from Alabama to Rochester and really neglected everything dealing with social media and the internet. I can say being named ” Reader of the Week” was the best welcome back gift.

I Love Thrifting: MAJOR Thrift Store Haul from Ooh La La Blog on Vimeo.
I absolutely L-O-V-E thrifting. I wasn’t always a thrifter, but after a few trips to the American Thrift Store with my mama, I quickly got on board and I haven’t looked back. Thrifting can be hit or miss, but typically I walk away with a few pieces I can’t leave on the racks. On my most recent trips to the thrift store I scored some MAJOR pieces. I’m talking a red leather skirt, an olive green distressed leather skirt, and a FAB plaid wool coat. Take a peek at the video to see what else I snagged while thrifting.
