70's and Mod look!!!

     Rag & Bone Fall 2011 collection seems 70's to me, I love this collection.  It uses mostly neutral colors with a pop of a bold color to make it fun also the use of bold stripes gives itn edgy look as opposed to the 70's where everything was neutral. 

Rag & Bone Fall 20111



      BCBG made me fall with the collection, it was whimsical, mod and earthy.  The Azria's incorporated these three trends and came up with an entire different concept of elegance. 


I am in LOVE!!!

PS.  Did you notice the tall boots for fall 2011 and less booties?

SHOE LUST

     I have been coveting some rocker meets sophisticated shoes, ones that wont hurt the bank.  I have been looking at some Louboutins for a while but the price would leave me bankrupt, lets just say I don't want to spend that much money right now.  This weekend while the nation was watching the Superbowl I happened to be shopping and I accidently ran into these beauties. God really does answer my prayer when I wonder off at church thinking about shoes.


     They are the perfect color to add sophistication to the dangerous spikes that make the shoes seem classy meets edgy.   They are exactly what I was looking for without breaking the bank, they are Sam Edelman at Dillard's for $200.00.   I can't wait to take them out on a sushi night with the ladies.  What kind of shoes are you lusting????

PS.  If you like shopping alone shop during the superbowl, the mall was empty.

Sunday-3 Things!!!

     Its Sunday the first day of the week and I have decided to make a list of the things that I am grateful for.  It will remind me of how blessed I am.  I will keep a list every Sunday to post for y'all to enjoy and share what your grateful for in the comments section.  Feels like this blog is already taking its own shape!

Front, back, and side views of iPad Wi-Fi.
     I guess I can say I am starting my week off great, I am now the owner of an ipad.  There are so many things one can do with this its like my iphone in a bigger version.  I have still to explore what I can do in this mini thing.  :)

     Sparkly Nail polish that I found at Wal-Mart for the fabulous price of $2.00!!!  yayayayaaaaaaa!!!!!   This nail polish has made these cold days glisten.  They come in a variety of colors with glitter or plain my favorite is Spit Fire, which not only make my nails look polished but also looks fantastic with my oversized rings.

a chic way of representing.......

     Lately I have been in a mood to buy all kinds of cards, I guess it was Christmas that left me in this mood since I do love Christmas cards.  Cards are a chic way of representing yourself when you cannot be there to share a special day, they are a way to say you're in my thoughts and can also give a personal touch to that gift your bought on your way to the party because you simply didn't have time to get one.  While at Micheal's buying supplies to make cupcakes, I stumbled upon their $1 section which is filled with all kinds of stationary and supplies for office and home. 





I was surprised for how cheap these were and had bring them home with me. I thought I could use these as sympathy, thank yous and just because cards, because who doesn't like to receive a card on a non-holiday Day!


     This one in particular was sent to my friends to warm them up during these cold days!!!

The time has come to open a window.

     I have been contemplating this window for about three years already and the time has come to open it.  I'm ready to share my passions and inspirations with all of you.  I am easily moved by fashion it drives me and pushes me literally to work harder every single day.  I don't know how this blog will evolve or where it will go but I do know that you will learn many things about me if anything. 
     That's me, Rosalba, a small town country girl.  Nice to meet you, come visit often!
