Watermelon Wednesday: Undeniable

Watermelon Wednesday

Accessories can make or break any outfit, making them memorable for whatever reason, lol. In all honesty I am more of an accessory fan than clothing, because mixing & matching the little things can make the same old outfit a very different experience. You don’t have to have a huge wardrobe if you can dress up what you have in different ways. I imagine, at this point, you’ve realized that my accessory collection far outweighs my modest collection of fashionable clothing. Certain I am not alone in this, I feel that many women use this style hack (if it could even be called that, LOL). While this post is not as long & rambling as my previous Watermelon Wednesdays, I’m sure that you appreciate the break from my overly casual musings & memories. πŸ˜‰ I found this lovely scarf at Lane Bryant, as I always seem to find something epic whenever I browse their collections, though I do note that you often have to invest in that style (in case you’re wondering that was a note about their prices being a little higher than many of the other places I frequently enjoy shopping).

Fantastical Friday: Crystals

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Let’s face it, I can be a bit of a New Age Crystal Weenie (LOL). I like my crystals & I believe they can be very effective focal points for personal energies. Different crystals can be helpful to focus different kinds of energy, I’m not going to go into a detailed list in this post, but I do my research when choosing the right stone for the occasion. So I’ve put together a small wishlist of dazzling numbers I found while browsing about on Amazon for your perusal. πŸ˜‰ Why Amazon you may ask, well, they just have about anything that exists & it’s so easy to find an unwieldy selection of whatever it is you’re looking for. πŸ˜€

Watermelon Wednesday: Funny Story

Watermelon Wednesday

So I’ve been playing around with the idea of adding a new series to my week for a while. During the course of my brainstorming I thought it might be nice to do a simpler sort of post, just spotlighting a single item instead of the lists or outfit ideas I usually do. It seemed logical to title it Spotlight Wednesday, because Wednesday was the perfect day giving a more or less even dispersal of posts throughout the week. Well, my man, who manages the social media for both of my blogs (not my twitter, that’s all me & pinterest is mostly me, he only posts my blog pics as the posts are released) was a bit of a sounding board for me while I was working up to how I was going to manage the new segment. Since he is involved with the social media, I suppose he thinks he should get a say about what goes down with my blogs, so he says, “You can’t call it Spotlight Wednesday, that doesn’t fit the theme.” I was all wtf, yes it does, the title says what it’s about. Then he proceeded to point out that the other 2 days had words that began with the same letter as the day, that meant we had to find a word that began with a W that hopefully expressed something of what the segment would be about. Of course it didn’t end there, LOL, I noticed that not only would the word need to start with a W but in order to comply with the theme it should also have 3 syllables. (Insert hours of boring searching through numerous W words with 3 syllables & sometimes not so boring as many of the “possibilities” inspired huge bouts laughter) Needless, at this point, to say, there is no such word in the English language (sure, rub it in that we couldn’t find one in the comments if you must, having found such a word yourself, LOL). In the end, I decided that the word watermelon didn’t really summarize the point, but at least I like watermelon & maybe it would denote a sense of friendliness & approachable silliness in the title. So welcome to the first Watermelon Wednesday! πŸ˜€ Today I’ve chosen an item that goes with my story quite well & it was found on Amazon. You might be thinking that I showcase items from them quite frequently & yeah, I do, but I have a list of shops I work with & I will be working my way through that list in the order in which they appear, which is mostly the order in which I joined their programs & I will get ’round to every single shop I work with. πŸ˜‰

Fantastical Friday: Sticky Fingers

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

I had an entirely different post planned, it was even written, but the shop I was promoting decided to drop me. They invited me to affiliate with them, my blog hasn’t really changed in that time, but suddenly I wasn’t good enough for them. Somewhat related, my wedding dress, the event being planned for Halloween, has already been supplied by them (not free, I bought it). Perhaps they would have felt differently had I remembered to use my affiliate link to place my, around $125, order. While I do sometimes promote shops & items that do not come from my affiliate programs, this particular store has trampled my toes into mush, I won’t post about them until I get more in depth about my coming special day costuming. So anyway, instead of the costume for the character I had planned I’m showcasing some loot worthy pieces the planned character would have liked to lift. All the items in this post come from Billy The Tree, a company I have worked with for a while. This time I have chosen to focus on wrist candy as I feel that it has been a very long time since I have done this.

Spring is pretty much in full force, at least in my area. While autumn is actually my favorite season, spring is a close second.

Magnificent Monday: Rae Dawn Chong

Magnificent Monday

I think she first came to my attention with The Color Purple, Rae has been in numerous intriguing roles since. More recentlyΒ she has created a bit of controversy with her rather public statements about Oprah. I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinion, even if it does come off as a bit crude. I have to admit to liking people that are willing to speak their mind bluntly, even if I do not agree with what they have to say (not that I personally know Oprah or anything).

Rae Dawn Chong

Always glamorous, even in the most simple of outfits, it’s easy to find inspiration when thinking of Rae Dawn Chong. I found some beautiful baubles at Billy the TreeΒ that seem to fit well in the style of this marvelous icon.

Chong Inspired1) Crystal Fashion Choker and Earring Set ($9.95)
2) Endless Simulated Pearl Fashion Necklace and Earring Set ($16.95)
3) 1928 Jewelry – Silver-Tone Purple Beaded Necklace 16″Adj. ($22)
4) 18″ Rhodium Plated 925 Sterling Silver 1.2mm (0.05″) Cable Chain w/ Lobster Clasp & 7.75 White Pearl Fancy Cubic Zirconia ($25.95)
5) 18″ + 2″ Rhodium Plated CZ Circle Necklace 925 Sterling Silver ($27.95)
6) Silver Tone Crystal Fashion Hoop Earrings ($9.95)
7) French Wire Earrings with 12mm Tiger’s Eye Bead 925 Sterling Silver ($10.95)
8) Pear Shape Drop Fashion Earrings with Black Beads ($10.95)
9) Shell and Magnesite Earrings 925 Sterling Silver ($16.95)

Magnificent Monday: Mary J. Blige

Magnificent MondayEpic rhythm & mighty soul are expectations for this stunning icon. Blige has a style all her own & when she first appeared in the early 90s her sense of fashion was very different from the other singers of the time as well. Β She is one of the few singers to have 8 or more albums reach multi-platinum status. I can’t help but be in awe of this amazing woman.

Mary J Blige

While other styles of earrings grace her lovely lobes the hoops are a go toΒ staple for her. I’ve chosen to focus on earrings for my inspired selections today & most of those are hoops of one form or fashion. All of the following items are from Jolly ChicΒ & are very budget friendly. πŸ˜‰ Not sure why they wanted to call #4 stud earrings when they are clearly dangles, but given that the specific item is not linked directly here it’s best that I use the name (however ridiculous) that they used, for ease of searching the shop’s site. πŸ˜€

Blige Inspired
1) Exaggerated Water Drop Women Earrings ($1.99)
2) Gold Silver Metal Loop Round Earrings ($1.99)
3) Brief Style Fashion Art Metal Women Earrings ($1.99)
4) Waterdrop Shaped Pendant Hollow Out Carving Womens Ear Studs ($2.99)

Magnificent Monday: Catherine Bach

Magnificent Monday

When I was a little girl I watched the Duke’s of Hazzard a lot. It was a fun show for a child, though I have to admit that I had no idea they were shine runners, LOL. I think I was in my twenties when the realization finally dawned on me! Today I honor the iconic Catherine Bach who will forever be Daisy Duke to me & so many others.

Catherine Bach

While I have drawn some direct inspiration from the beautiful Catherine my selections today are more generally southern in style. When I think of Daisy Duke I think of down home beauty, both impractical & practical. All of today’s items were found at Jolly ChicΒ & are super affordable as well as fashionable. πŸ˜‰

Bach Inspired 1) Retro Ethnic Turquoise Alloy Women Ring ($1.99)
2) Bohemia Turquoise Teardrop Pendant Women Earring ($1.99)
3) Leaf Pendant Chain Solid Fashion Arm Bracelet ($1.99)
