White Eyelet Dress + Pink Sequin Bag

white_eyelet_dress

I was in a summer mood this weekend as I donned myself in a white eyelet dress and a pink sequin bag and slipped on my favorite Sam Edelman GiGi sandals. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was amazing. I didn’t go overboard, but I did get some amazing pieces to BEEF up my wardrobe!

Pour la Victoire Boots I Snagged on SALE!

PourLaVictoireBoots

I love buying off season. The middle of summer or even Spring is the perfect time to buy boots. I just snagged these cute Pour la Victoire boots with the fabu heels that were originally $350 for Only $52! Yep! That’s right. I would have never paid $350 for them, but I easily parted with $52! And I need a pair. A few days later they came in the mail and I wrote up this post and the price increased to $105! (check the link) they may still have your size, but it still beats $350! Subscribe to the blog below. I’ll be sharing cute finds all summer long.

Finally Deciding on A Wedding Dress . . . Yolan Cris

yolan_cris

Honestly I’ve been procrastinating when it comes to choosing a dress. I want something simple yet feminine, yet I don’t want something overly frilly. Meaning, I don’t want to look like I’m going to prom or like I’ve been ripped from the pages of the Victoria era. When I came across this photo of this Yolan Cris gown on Facebook from Bridal Tribe, I loved it but wasn’t sure if I would go with it because it almost looks like it could pass for a slip. I think it’s stellar for a summer wedding though and would look perfect with my bun. The only drawback, my major boobs. I don’t want to be indecent and all over the place. I’m still looking.

Pretty Blue and Gold Accent Chair

chairI love decorating almost as much as I love shoes and fashion. I already have several rooms in our home planned out including my office. When I saw this chair on Pinterest from Classy Clutter it immediately got a thumbs up. It looks comfortable. I love the tranquil blue, even though I may opt to swap it out for pink. The gold trim really makes it look regal. I just can’t wait to start scouting out land, building our dream home and escape the incessant barking of the neighbor’s dog and the big foot guy on top of us who walk like a gladiator in a Roman coliseum. I mean really, all a princess every really wants is a little peace.

I’m Crushing on This Tawnie Haynes Set

tawni_haynesI am totally smitten with this two piece set by Tawni Haynes. It has that vintage feel with the bowtie and I love the wide leg pants. And the PINK you know that really and truly sets it off for me. It’s going on the wish list. So adorable! Crush mode in FULL EFFECT!

3 Things I Had to Overcome to Embrace Love

My husband did a video sharing the things he had to overcome to embrace love. Heck we all have to overcome something. So, I wanted to share my 3 things that I had to overcome. Some people may not have 3 things, some may have way more than three, whatever it is, I urge you to overcome what it is that may be preventing you from loving and being loved fully and authentically. Trust me, love is TRULY worth it.

Easy 4th of July Cookie Recipe

4th_of_July_CookiesOkay so it’s no secret that the storm, hurricane or whatever you want to call it (since it keeps downgrading and then upgrading again) ruined the 4th of July. So, we won’t be griling out but I think I really do want to make several batches of these cookies.

I grabbed a quick sugar cookie recipe from Alton Brown. He’s always good for a solid recipe.
I also grabbed his royal icing recipe too. The only additional thing you’d need is blue and red food coloring to make it patriotic and a piping bag with the proper tip if you want to do actual letter writing on the cookies. Otherwise, have at it and be creative. Happy 4th of July!

SheSassy Favorite Five Things

IMG_20130727_175007-1Shekaria Summers is a sassy 8-5 office worker by day, and by night she is a sassy fashion blogger! SheSassy.com is my get away where I can communicate with other sassy ladies about our passion for fashion. Shoes and handbags are my inspiration, these accessories give me life, courage, and strength to want to further my career in the fashion industry. When I am not talking about fashion or my future business plans, I am spending time with my family, serving at my church, reading, and of course blogging! I am a true SHOENISTA, if you don’t believe me check out my blog every Tuesday for Shoesday Tuesday at http://shesassy.com

SheSassy Favorite Five Things

SheSasstFavorite51. Dooney & Bourke Handbags – I can not tell you how many Dooney & Bourke handbags I own, but what I do know is the top shelf of one of my closets is lined with the blue protective bags! My love for Dooney started when I was 15, when my aunt bought me my first Dooney, and I have been in love every since then. I know I carried that Dooney for at least a year before I got another one! The feel of the leather is what I love the most about Dooney. Then there is the tassel, I think I can spot that duck a mile away! Then there is the key hook inside the purse. I could go on and on, but let’s just say when it comes to leather handbags Dooney & Bourke is my first choice.

2. Peep-Toe Pumps – I don’t know about other women, but something just comes all over me when I put on a peep-toe shoe. Again, I can’t tell you how many pairs of peep-toes I own, for that matter, how many pairs of shoes I own. But I can tell you I have two walk in closets full, of course, the walk in closets are the reason I bought my house, so I could have somewhere to put all of my shoes! When I put on a pair of peep-toe pumps I think I really do become another person, yep, I become SheSassy! When I wear a pair of peep-toes I feel like a lady, sexy, and sassy. I walk with my head held high, my back is straight, and I have a major swing in my hips. Whenever I feel like I need a pick me up, I wear a pair of peep-toe pumps.

3. Cardigans – I wear cardigans ALL the time. I stay on Old Navy’s website watching and waiting for them to go on sale! My love for cardigans came about because I wanted to wear some sleeveless, tank, and strapless dresses to work one summer, and I messed around put a cardigan over them, and it changed my whole wardrobe. With a cardigan I am able to dress up the nice summer dresses for work, and rock the dress on the weekend without the cardigan. Oh, the 3/4 length sleeve is my favorite, interchangeable for spring/summer and fall/winter.

4. Mani/Pedi – My love for fingernail polish came from my grandmother. My grandmother used to polish her fingernails every Saturday night so they would be fresh for church Sunday, and I find myself doing this every Saturday now! But in high school, I think I was a bit OCD with the fingernail polish. I would polish my nails EVERY NIGHT to match my outfit for the next day. And from that, in my mind I HAD to polish my toes too! I’m not that bad now, I just polish my fingernails once a week, and my toenails every two weeks, with a good spa treatment at home, I DIY-it. I mean, really, I can’t have jacked up polish while wearing peep-toe pumps!

5. Natural Hair – I have been natural for six years now, and it was the best decision I ever made. And it was the first decision that I made and I didn’t think about what other people would say. At the time I big chopped my aunt was one year into her diagnosis as a very aggressive stage four breast cancer patient. It was life changing for my family to experience this. And it was life changing to see my aunt go through this with her head shaved bald. So I made the decision to big chop, and my life changed. This was such a freeing move for me. I did all kinds of research on products, how to style my hair, and how to grow my hair. At five years in, last year, I said forget this, this is just too much for one person to have to go through, and I big chopped again. All last year I wore my hair very low, just like my seven year breast cancer survivor aunt! Oh, and I colored it honey blonde! What I love most about my natural hair is that I have learned to live, I am free to be the woman that God wants me to be, and I don’t care what others have to say about it.
