Yellow wedge Sneakers


Hey FashionJjunkeys! I’ve been so busy with all my activities for the summer but I’m trying to get back in the groove of posting more often.  So today we will start off with a new pair of kicks I picked up for $20.00 on Totsy, to bad Totsy was bought out by some new company called Modnique which is entirely to pricey compared to the old Totsy. I wont be shopping on Modnique any time soon.

They came in the mail and I loved them, they color just popped so I decided to pair them up with some cut off jeans and a yellow sleeveless tee. I took my son school shopping and let me tell you these were so comfortable to be on my feet all day.

Refashion: Vintage Dress


I bought a sew machine a few months back and its been sitting in my closet ever since. So since its a rainy day here in Atlanta I decided to pull my Brother machine out and alter a few items that I cant give away, so why not alter them so I can fit them again! I came across this dress while going through my closet.

So the dress falls below my knees and I felt it wasnt really flattering for my body so I decided to cut it shorter and hem it, heres how it looks cut and hemmed.

My Mommy Wear


So I’m not your typical mommy, I’m not that mommy that wears yoga & sweat pants just because I am a mom and they are comfortable. You can still be comfortable and  be a rock star mom!

What the heck I thought it was spring!


Once again this weather is playing tricks! I just pulled out my spring wardrobe and the next day its cold and rainy. I had to dig back into my fall/winter wardrobe and decided on this blue jean outfit, which is all thrifted from Value Village, the boots are from Jcpenny. (my little guy decided to jump in one of my shots).

Looks of the Week


I’m so sorry I’ve been really bad at posting daily so I decided to at least post 3 days a week starting next week. Running my own businesses,  a mommy meetup group, training for a half marathon (13.1 miles),  and being a stay at home mommy/wife can keep me busy most days but I wouldnt change it for the world I love my hectic life, LOL!

So here are the outfits I wore for the week when I managed to get out the house and im so sorry for the cell phone pics.

Everyone always ask why do I always take pictures on this brick wall (my signature wall) you always see me in the back drop, well my daughter which is 5 takes all my pictures right before we jump in the car to start our day. We live in a town house and its is all brick, plus the lighting is great!  😉

A little Glamour mixed with Western


On this day I decided I wanted to be comfortable but fab like always.. 🙂 At least once a month I take my dad to his Dr appointments and I try to look my best even running errands and helping my dad out. I do hate that people mistake me for his wife or girlfriend, ugh gross..LOL

I bought the red checkered shirt (goodwill) thinking how cute it would look in the spring time with some white skinny jeans or shorts with a strappy heel or red converse. The necklace I bought about 2 years ago from forever21 and decided to finally pull it out and rock it with my western shirt (a little glamour mixed with western). 😉

As for the jeans & the cropped red jacket they are also from the Goodwill, the boots are by Liz & Co I caught on sale at Jcpennys during Black Friday for $30.00 (great price for real leather, I take that back can you say STEAL).

Thrift Haul


If you haven’t figured it out I am a thrift junkey! I try to go at least twice a week but no less than once a week. Last week I had to do a photography session an hour away from me in Roswell. I went up a little early so I can look for a few thrift stores and what to do I find? I drive up to this Salvation Army, but this wasn’t just any Salvation Army this one was big! They had clothes, furniture, linen, just about everything. I was set up like a Marshalls, I was in heaven.

I ended up finding a pair of trousers, a dress, and a pair of shorts.

Brand new with tags it was 24.99 but I got it for $9.99

Thrift Haul


So yesterday I stopped by a Value Village in the area I was in, I didn’t think I would find much since its not the best area. By my surprised I find a few things that I am very excited about.

If you follow the trends like me then you know sexy strappy heels are making a come back. I love a sexy strap heel so I knew I had to find a pair, so when I saw these for $3.99 brand new I wanted to scream.. 😉

I also found these vintage purses for $2.00 each and these belts for $0.99 each.
