Skulls have been around for a while, but have recently been more prominent thanks to the amazing creations of Alexander McQueen. They didn’t really call out my name until I came across this beauty during a Birthday Dinner at Beauty and Essex. The bag retailed for $2000.00, it just was WAY more than I would ever dream about spending on a trendy item like this. After much research, I found the maker of the bag – Shay Accessories, and found it retailing for $1500.00…still WAY out of my price range. Needless to say, I walked away disappointed, but with a new found love for skulls!
While doing some Birthday shopping I came across this top and knew I had to have it. Not the $2000.00 priced bag (that I STILL dream about) but at a reasonable price that I felt comfortable spending.
Would you have bought the bag? (Confession, I’m still considering it!)

I feel so lucky to have the most wonderful followers and I feel I need to apologize to you. As you all know, I’m in technology sales and the last couple of weeks have been a complete nightmare due to our year-end. I have been doing my best to post on time and reply to all your super sweet comments, but I’ve been failing miserably. I promise once all this is over (and I close every deal), I will resume to posting on time, replying to all your comments and visiting all my favorite blogs.
In the meantime, please have a little patience with me and I promise I will return to normal soon.

I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m totally sick in these pictures. I had to peel myself out of bed to get to the doctor, so I decided to put on something nice (I had been in PJs all weekend) I know, I’m super weird. Even the people at the doctor’s office were looking at me weird. I’m not sure if I was just delirious but I really thought these shoes looked great with this outfit. I like the mix of tough and sweet. What do you think? Is it a do or don’t?

This weekend I celebrated on of my best friend’s birthday, Happy Birthday Meli!!! I also stopped by Kohls to check out J-Lo’s new line and walked away with this awesome LC jacket (I’ll be wearing it with EVERYTHIG this fall) and this super cute J-Lo top. At $84, I thought it was a bit too pricey, but a sweet lady behind the counter gave me a coupon so I got it for $60. It’s a great fit and I can’t wait to pair it with flowy pants, or skinny jeans!!!
Ooooohhhh…..I also finally got a tripod in hopes that my pictures are a little brighter. Stay tuned!
