How cute is this...

Camel colored Sheer Tunic Dress from Forever21!? Following suite with my previous post, I've been searching for something just like this to wear under or over outfits. I ordered it today and can't wait to get it! It was a STEAL on sale at $4.99. This always makes a girl smile.

Dress or Skirt Too Short?!

Never fear! Is what I thought when I saw this super cute idea in Lucky Mag.
 Neon Green Dress from H&M $60...but it was sold out.   : ' (

However...Big Lots had a sheer Lime Green Curtain Panel...$5.00! 
Guess who can sew?!   ; )

Swimming Pool Scene...

Tomorrow I'll be in a swimming pool...and on film for an International documentary about my Goddaughter (Tanya Angus). I don't 'do' bathing suits like I used to. So today I thought, what the heck, let's go for it! I pieced together this adorable, skin-baring, sexy-yet-modest, somewhat Americana number at (can you believe it?) Walmart?

Bronzed Beauty

UPDATE: But instead I came home with these ridiculously, sexy-cute sandals (in pewter) from Kmart! 

Today I will go out into the world and bridge the gap that stands between me and these gorgeous Bronze Gladiator-Hybrid sandals, because they are going to look GREAT with the new crochet back printed dress I scored (on sale)...

My all time favorite nail color/product is without a doubt...

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips, in "Kitty, Kitty". When applied as instructed, these last for weeks! I've had them last as long as 32 days (basically, I was just ready to try a new design).

They provide my nails with such a good degree of protection that I've seen amazing improvement in my nail's strength and length.

I usually apply a coat of Sally Hansen Diamond Strength No Chip Nail Color, in "Flawless" around the 7th day and every 4th day there after.

They come in a plethora of colors and designs>>>

DG2 Polka Dot Jeans from HSN Review

You may recall that I bought these jeans in two colors recently.

I had to let you know that although the green and red colors are really beautiful, these jeans are just not worth buying UNLESS you plan on dry cleaning them! The dots themselves faded drastically after just one wash (an 'as instructed' wash I might add). Apart from that you'll also want to know that they run one size too small.

It's a pity because I truly wanted to love these jeans. Maybe after Diane Gilman works out the kinks I'll try again.

Manufacturing really needs to come back to the USA!

Because of HSN's return policy and excellent customer service (I got free return shipping after writing about my dissatisfaction with the DG2's), I give them Kudo's!

Signature Fragrance...

Do you have one? I do...Nina Ricci "L'Air Du Temps"

I came across this delicious fragrance at the age of 13, when my at-the-time best friend's mother (named 'Nina') wore it. I fell in olfactory love immediately and claimed it as my signature fragrance. Having never been a lover of any type of 'Rose' scents, the spicier notes in this sexy, subtle, seductive potion appeal to and have kept me a tried and true devotee. Little did I know at that time that this is one love I would never fall out of, and that I would be eternally loyal to.

Created in 1948, this post WW2 fragrance which (according to the Nina Ricci website itself) symbolize emblematic values which remain Universal today...PEACE, FREEDOM and LOVE.
Elena Vosnaki has written a wonderfully insightful article about this intoxicating blend...

Spring Has Sprung...

Here in Las Vegas, NV. the trees and bushes are all flowering (and apart from the odd day here and there) most days the temps are hovering around the mid-60's Fahrenheit. It's a great time to get out and enjoy some Las Vegas wildlife like that found at Springs Preserve, Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire or Mount Charleston...

Being the kind of person that warms up easily anyway, getting outdoors more means that I'm already tapping into some of my summer clothing, as well!

Today I happened upon this super cute spring/summer polka dot peter pan collar dress, from GoJane paired up with these easy wearing knotted maryjane wedge shoes, also from GoJane. Both look like they were inspired by the rich colors of the Southwest soil and deep mountain shadows...

Attention to Detail...

I was perusing the Internet this evening and came across these shoes, which I find to be extraordinary in attention to detail...not to mention, they look so classy and comfy!

Miz Mooz Women's Tenjune Pump Shoe from Infinity Shoes (currently on CLEARANCE!)

This Miz Mooz Women's Sailor T-Strap Pump Shoe (below; from InfinityShoes, available in colors) just screams out 'Flamenco'!

Not much of winter here in Las Vegas...

and because of the unusually warm 'winter' weather here in Nevada (and the rest of the US), I'm already sporting my favorite sandals! Very comfortable and so stylish. This is a great alternative to a flip-flop.

Pair these warm toned sandals with a cool toned pedicure (like Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Color in "Gunmetal") for a great neutral look! PS...I adore toe rings!

Jennifer Lopez in THAT Green Dress...

As soon as I saw this green silk caftan, it brought to mind that green (Donatella VERSACE) dress worn by JLo at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in 2000...Seiden-Kaftan Palm-BeachSilk Caftan (above) by Matthew Williams $625 USD

Yay! Not Too Skinny Print Jeans, NEW for Spring!

Jeans...what's not to love? But pseudo leggings (uber tight) 'skinny' jeans are just not for me. That's why I adore these jeans below from DG2 (Diane Gilman at HSN. They're like a straight leg/skinny jean hybrid. WINNER!
