Personally for me, red is a statement color and I don’t wear it often enough. I had a red trench coat from Evans a few years back and red pants in high school. But the last years I haven’t worn any red clothing pieces. Until I saw this dress on modcloth.com. I love that it has a deep rich color and a cute neckline. Unfortunately the cut wasn’t right for my body so I had to return it.
Now I am on the hunt for another red dress.
Here are a few of my favorites.

Last year we didn't do anything on these days, in fact I think we were in a grocerystore at midnight hehe.
But this year it is going to be different, we are invited to a Secret Santa Party and that party has a theme. This years theme is "A December To Remember", the dress code is winter formal.
I chose this dress from H&M (years back) and paired it with my new blazer from JCP (my only black Friday find).
I love the style of the dress, it's a babydoll with a nice highneckline. It looks classy. I paired it with shiny earrings and a dark make-up look.

I remember coming to the states for the first time and my mother in law telling me I am an autumn. She hit the nail right on its head. I look best in autumn colors. They complement my skin tone and suit my personality. I look weird in pastel and white!
I adore the color of this vest. I found it at the goodwill for only $3 so a huge steal! (My goodwill has an awesome plus size section).
The tunic, I think it is a dress, but cause of my height it looks like a tunic on me. I found it at target. I like the pattern, it is not too busy and not overwhelming. I am very picky when it comes to prints, it has to appeal me. While I love prints on others I think I look funky in them. But over the summer Ive collected a ton of dresses with prints. I think it is part of me stepping out of my comfort zone. Not to mention that this girl didn’t even wear leggings 2 years ago (what was I thinking?!)The boots are from sheikh shoes, bought them about 2 years ago and they are still holding up pretty good. My leggings and knee highs (not! I can’t even get them over my calves but oh well! ) are from forever21.

Last week I was searching for the perfect dress for an upcoming wedding. I have a hard time finding a dress because I am so tall. I am 1.83 centimeter or 6 feet tall with a long torso. The problems I run into are that the dresses often are way too short. And I know myself, I wont wear a dress more than once. Especially if it is a formal dress. I don't go to many occasions so the dress has to be versatile.
dress/top - Ross (annabelle)* jeans - Torrid * bag - Melrose *shoes - old navy
When I walked into my Ross (dress for less) I found this cute blue dress, I instantly fell in love, the color is so vibrant and I just looooove the lace sleeves. It covers my arms and yet it shows some skin. But as you can see this dress is way to short to wear with some tights.
I decided to buy it anyway and paired it up with my Torrid skinny jeans. Those jeans are my favorite all time! It gives me a nice booty and the color is beautiful too. The blue of the jean is fading on the knees but I kinda like that! The other thing that i like about it is that the skinny part still is skinny!
This day we went out to a restaurant to eat some lunch and I didn't want to go over the top with hair and make-up. I recently dyed my hair this auburn color and I love it so far. I matches my skin tone better than the brown/blonde did. I kept the make-up simple, just some earth tones with a hit of red on the lips.
This post is made in combination with the Ahead of the curve group. This a group of fabulous ladies. Every month there is a topic and we can apply the topic as we want.

I live in northern California and it gets really hot here in the summertime. Hot and muggy! I am from a cold country, in the summertime I am used to wear a little cardigan or jacket. Not sweating my butt off! The style of this top is perfect for my pear shaped body. It has an empire waist and flows out.
I paired it up with my torrid skinny jeans. I love these jeans, they are so comfy.
I am a camisole lover! For sure! For me it is hard to find a good cami cause they are always too short for my torso. A few weeks ago I was browsing through target and I saw their maternity section had some pretty nice cami's. Little bit pricey but oh well. Me and my cami are in love! It is meant to stretch in the belly area and stay snug at the breast area. I Love It!

My goodwill has a good variety of glass jars and vases. I picked up a squared glass vase (originally IKEA I guess). I found a bag of shattered glass on the shelves and figured that that could be my filling.
The things you need for this DIY is:
- Glass jar/vase
- Shattered glass (or something else small that will stay in place)
- Ribbons ( I picked 2 to create an effect)
- Craft glue
- Measuring tape
First you start with measuring where you want your ribbon to be, I marked 4 spots and made sure the ribbon was crossing those points.
Once you have done that you can go ahead and glue the ribbon to the jar. You can use craft glue or a glue gun. I don’t have one yet so I used regular glue.
After you glued the ribbons the jar you can tie them or glue them just whatever you want.
Once you are done with that the fun part starts…. Filling it up with the shattered glass. Fill it up all the way to the ribbon for a nice effect.
Voila! Decorate it with some brushes and you are done!!
You can do this with brushes but also with lollypops or other items for a party or as a gift.
What did this DIY cost me?
- scrap ribbon ( free)
- Glass vase $0,50
- Shattered glass $1,00
So for less than 2 dollars you have a unique brush holder.
