Pool-Side POMping!


Greetings,

and thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate those of you who has stuck around since it has been, seems like FOREVER, since my last post.  I promise I didn't mean to stay away for so long but that thing called life can takeover (I am sure you understand).  So from the bottom of my heart....THANK YOU and I missed all of you!

Now lets get into this outfit post.  This past weekend my mom and I took a trip to visit family in CT for my cousin's graduation.  To celebrate, she was thrown a pool party.  Now let me tell you a little about me, I am not a pool-side girl or a swimmer, BUT I wanted to be "pool-side" fab...lol.  I really loved how this outfit turned out considering a couple of items were my very own DIY.  It was fun, colorful, and flirty and all around Summer-time appropriate.  I also think this look is quite festival appropriate considering all of the fun music and art festivals during the Summer.

 Now my favorite part of this look are the shoes.  The pom pom sandal is one of the hottest Spring/Summer shoe trend that has hit and I am here for it.    Many designers such as Dolce & Gabbana  (*in Madea's voice..lol) and Aquazzura, to name a couple has jumped on the bandwagon.  There are also budget-friendly options for these shoes.I have found ASOS, Shein, and Sammy Dress has these shoes reasonably priced and they look just as stylish as the designers. BUT your girl took it even further by making her own... YES, I did!!  I purchased the sandals from Target for $14.99, found packs of Pom Poms in various sizes and Jewelry hooks from Hobby Lobby, and begin to hot glue away.  I received so many compliments and mouths dropped when I told people I made them.....(shy grin).

90's Vibe

 Happy Monday Loves,

and lets not forget to remember Dr. Martin Luther King.  There was a lot of us off of work today, but we must not lose sight of what this day represents; A man of great courage and dignity, whom put his life on the line for our freedom and for that I am forever grateful.  So today's look was 90's inspired.   The 90's were my teen years and I absolutely miss mostly everything about it.  Looking back, those were the best years of my life.  Do you guys remember the music????  OMG, the 90's music was THE best and at present, my Pandora playlist is mostly stations from the 90's groups.....(totally zoned out in LaLa land for a minute.......lol.).  Any who, lets not forget the fashions, the acid wash, denim-on-denim, high waist pants, bold colors, gothic, grungy...just to name a few.  This fashion era has been circulating back around and I love to see everyones'  take on the style, but if you didn't actually grow up in that time, you would never know how dope of a time it really was.  Well, I hope you all enjoy this look and please comment your favorite fashions/times of the 90's below.

Denim Dress (worn as a jacket)-Consignment Shop

Jeans-Love Culture
Bag - Brahmin
Shoes- Charlotte-Russe (Similar)

Fringe & Leather



Happy Sunday....
   and Happy New Year!!!  I am so excited to be posting the first look of 2016.   So lets get into some fringe.  I have been loving the fringe trend this past year and I am pretty sure I am not done yet. My mom came across this Fringe vest at Von Maur and she instantly knew it was all me.  I chose to style this vest with all black simply because I wanted it to be the focal point.  I also took a chance on wearing a crop top.  I was a little skeptical because my belly is not where I want it to be, however, thanks to these high waist leather pants for hiding it a little.  Well, I hope you all enjoy the look!!!
 





Outfit Deets:
 
Fringe Vest - Von Maur
Crop Top - Sears
Leather pants - H & M
Shoes - Lola Shoetique (Similar)
Sunnies - Tom Ford (c/o Hubby)
Statement ring - Gifted

A Look Back at 2015........

Greetings all,

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was great.  Simply spending time with my family talking and laughing was all I needed.  I was so thankful that my mom, sister and niece came to spend it with us this year.  On another note, I know that it has been a minute since my last post and I truly apologize, but I have been super busy at work and preparing for Christmas. I was also sick with a very bad cold/sinus infection and I have not fully recovered from that. The weather here in the South has been cray cray.....we have experienced some weird fluctuations in the temperature and let's not forget the rainy week of Christmas, definitely not good for this cold I was trying to get over.  Soooo, with all of that being said, between life, the weather, and this terrible cold, it has had your girl down for a minute, but I am back up and running.  I missed you all and I am looking forward to great things to come for Chic-N-Everything in 2016. I didn't post as much as I would have liked this year but it was still nothing short of amazing.  For the upcoming year, my goal is to post more content, collaborate with other bloggers/companies, and attend more blogger events. 

So for today's post, I wanted to recap the looks of 2015.  Hope you enjoyed these looks and please let me know which was your favorite.








The most amazing moment of 2015 was my feature in Instyle Magazine......(big smile) 


Thanks to all of you for your support and lets close out 2015 with a BANG!!!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Hugs & Kisses
