My Winter Coat

Last year my bestie gifted me this fabulous cobalt blue coat for Christmas.  I had forgotten all about it and suddenly discovered it in my coat closet a few weeks ago.  Needless to say, I wasted no time throwing it on for sushi with my girlfriend.  Don't you LOVE when that happens?  There is nothing like rediscovering something in your wardrobe!  Those forgotten gems give me life when I cant figure out what to wear.

Coat: F21+






 Well, I'm pretty sure this will be my last post of 2012 so I want to take a moment to thank everyone for following me on my little blog.  My 1 year anniversary is coming up next month so I will be hosting some giveaways to celebrate!  Also, right now I am having a huge sale on my website - everything is 50% off!  Stop by and take a look www.goodtimegirlshop.com

Have a happy new year everyone :)

Good Time Girl Staple: Faux Fur Vest

Hey gals!

The weather in LA has finally gotten COLD!  It rained over the weekend but I still had to get out and do some Christmas shopping.  Here is what I wore...


Fur vest is Allen B c/o JCPenny
Necklace - www.goodtimegirlshop.com



I must say this faux fur vest is EVERYTHING!  I was warm all day without sacrificing style.  Definitely a good investment piece.  I got it for Christmas last year and was so excited to whip it out again this year.  I'm thinking of adding a black and white one to my wardrobe this year.

Take care dolls!

{Palazzo Pants}

Happy Holidays!

As Christmas draws near and with the new year on the horizon, I just want to take a moment to reflect on all of the things I am thankful for.  With this Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy all over the media, it's hard not to be thankful for your blessings.  My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this senseless tragedy.

On a lighter note, I went wine tasting with my girlfriend last weekend.  Since you mainly do a lot of standing (and drinking) I opted for a nice casual look with a pair of palazzo pants gifted to me by my good friend Devine (@lashoediva).  The colors in these pants really popped and they felt like I was wearing pajamas!  Win win situation!


Poparazzi Earrings, GTG Necklace, Chanel Bag, LV Belt, CK Blazer










After having such a good experience with these pants, I will definitely be purchasing some more in the future.  What do you guys think of this look?

Miami Nights!!!

Hey loves!

Miami is my absolute favorite place to travel too!  Being from Los Angeles, I love that Miami has alot of the same nightlife aspects that we have but 100 times better!  I went for the first time in 2008 and haven't missed a year yet.  I don't know what it is but I love that place..

Since my boyfriend's parents live near Tampa, we always go see them for Thanksgiving and then drive down to Miami for the weekend.  This year, my good friend Devine met me down there with her guy to celebrate his birthday! My little sister also came with her crew and we partied it up!  My other good friend Kyonna lives there now so I was in complete heaven kicking it with so many of my favorite people.  The shenanigans were endless!!!  Me and my folks had a fabulous time!  Check out the pics..

**PIC HEAVY** Please excuse the quality on some of the pics.. they were taken with my iphone...

My BF hated this dress! Oh well.. I loved it! LOL #asos

The Unexpected...

Hi my loves!

I can't tell you all how much I've missed you!  I remember when I first started blogging, I would always run across posts from some of my favorite bloggers saying that they hadn't been motivated to blog.  I remember thinking, "how could that happen?"  Now that I am approaching my one year blogiversary, I totally understand.  Sometimes life just gets so hectic that we get so lost in the shuffle and neglect the very things that give us so much joy.  That's what has happened to me lately.. I've been uber-busy with life, mommyhoood, school and work that I had forgotten to take the time to invest in my blog! 

Even though I haven't posted much, I do still browse around and check all of you guy's blogs out.  I have to say that I've been very inspired by Brittany @ pocketsandbows.blogspot.com and Naty @ aloveaffairwithfashion.blogspot.com.  If you aren't following them already, I highly suggest it!  They are both so fashionable!!!  I actually want to thank these ladies for bringing me out of my blog-rut!  I've seen so many GOREGOUS outfits on their blogs and it made me want to get out and start thrifting again.. go window shopping and gain some inspiration.. it brought me back to the reason I started blogging in the first place - because I LIKE FASHION! *Marlo Voice*

With all that being said, hold on ladies.. when you start feeling like neglecting your blog, churn a quick post out for your loyal readers.  I appreciate all of you for hanging in there with me and following my blog no matter what! 

Whew! Long winded I know! Now on to the outfit...








Aztec Necklace from www.goodtimegirlshop.com



I woke up this morning with no idea what to wear.  I grabbed this H&M sweater and looked in my closet and dug out these jeans from F21+ that I hadnt worn in ages.. My taupe boots from Bakers just happened to be laying on the floor and Viola! There goes my outfit.. The black blazer tops it all off and I grabbed my patent leather python print Prada purse to tie it all in.  In the end I was very pleased.  The color combo is so unexpected but somehow it works!

Hope you guys like my outfit as much as I do! 

Until next time....

Fashion Show Fab

Hello my loves!

Just a quick OOTD post from a few weeks ago when I attended my favorite boutique's fashion show.  Philthy Ragz is a trendy boutique in LA that houses some of the most unique pieces you can find!  The designer, Gaynelle White, is always friendly and super helpful in finding the perfect outfit to fit your body.  That woman is a genius!!! I have been shopping there for a few years and I usually like to get my birthday and special occassion dresses from there.  Check her out on FB and Instagram @philthyragz

Anywhoo.. here is what I wore to see the "Dressed To Kill" collection:

I got this cute Chanel Inspired sweatshirt in SoHo on my NYC trip!






The show was a success and I picked up an amazing dress that I can't wait to wear soon!  I just got back from Miami and I have a bunch of pics to share so stay tuned ;)

MAC Pro Party: Paint By Numbers

Hi guys!

I was recently invited to the MAC Pro store in Beverly Hills for a fab party unveiling one of the brands new collections.  As some of you know I used to work for MAC and it is still my all time favorite brand when it comes to cosmetics!  It felt good to get out and mingle with my fellow artists.. I saw so many people that I havent seen in YEARS!

Amazing artwork done by the MAC trainers.. The model looked like a real-life Ken doll!


Me rocking my super last minute colorblock situation.. I loved how this outfit came out!


Fresh faced.. I totally need to start glamming up again #teamnewmommy


Cute bartenders

My bestie Patty went for an all black ensemble in true MAC fashion


Love this year's brush sets!

My trusty Balenciaga.. Still looks brand new after all these years!

So.. what do you guys think of the new hair???

PAint!

When Patty and I were in makeup school (where we met) this lady came and spoke to our class.  We were so inspired that we both ended up working for MAC.  We love you Monique!!!

A few quick shots after the party!

Sometimes you cant go wrong with primary colors.  They work so well together.  This outfit was a mix of old and new.. My blouse was thrifted, skinnies were brand new and my shoes are at least 2 years old!  Fashion fades but style is eternal!

Thanks for reading loves!

Leopard + Denim + Cobalt

Hey Friends!  How's everyone enjoying this fall weather?

The tempatures here in Los Angeles have been up and down lately but you can definitely tell that it's fall.  The nights are colder even though we still regularly have 80 degree days.  I'm looking forward to fall.. just gotta find the perfect rust colored bag and get a pair of black boots!  I'm also on the hunt for a trench coat with the black leather sleeves.. if you see one please comment or email me!

So nothing special about this look.. just another day at work.  I love cobalt and leopard together.  It's one of my latest obsessions!  I love how the colors play off of each other..






 


If you follow me on Instagram you know that I recently made a drastic change with my hair!!! These pictures were taken a few days before my transition.. I'll be posting some OOTD pics with my new hair soon so stay tuned :)

Stay blessed everyone!
