I've put together a selection of bomber jackets for spring to compliment any outfits. These lightweight jackets can be worn over lacy romantic tops, paired with pencil skirts, over long maxi dresses and most of all cute denim jeans. These aviator style jackets are just light enough to keep the chill off or heavy enough to keep you warm on a cool spring night out. However you fashion up your bomber jacket, you're sure to look chic!

Today was the first time this year that I made a video for my YouTube channel. I wanted to let everyone know that I finished all my chemotherapy and that I was cancer free. I also told them that I was very self conscious because I didn't have any eyelashes (top or bottom) and that was why I hadn't made any videos in awhile. As a beauty blogger, a lot of what I do here and on my YT channel is makeup reviews. But how can I play in makeup when I don't feel myself or even look like myself. I have glasses but I hate wearing them, so I wear my contacts and go about my day. Mostly i'm in the gym everyday and I never wear makeup to the gym anyway. But when I go to church or on outings with my husband, I feel self conscious because my eyes feel so naked and bare.

Layering with Ponchos is a great alternative to heavy coats during the cold winter months. They're fashionable and can be worn over a multitude of different looks. Ponchos give you a variety of looks and allows you to still look chic while keeping warm and cozy while out and about. Ponchos comes in a variety of styles and are an inexpensive option to wearing a huge coat.

Short tops, dresses and skirts are everywhere, but if you prefer a little more length - or just a little added panache - you need an Extender! Extenders are the perfect way to add length to any top, skirt or dress without any alternations. The soft, slinky material fits easily underneath whatever you’re wearing and feels great next to your skin. Undulating lace flounces peek out from tops and bottoms to add graceful movement with every step you take.

It's no fun being sick! In bed with the flu for 4 days, then I started feeling a little better and the rain came and hit us hard here in Los Angeles. I didn't dare go out in the rain in fear of getting even sicker so I decided to cut out some fabric and sew a few things that I had planned for January's sewing projects. My goal is to wear something that I made along with something that I purchased in my fashion photos from now on.

I've had this trench coat for about 5yrs and it's from Bebe. This is the second time that I wore this trench coat as a dress, it's a very light pink color and I pared it with a wide beige belt, a beige shawl, beige purse and some pink flats. It looks great with a pair of heels or flats as I've worn them with in this post. My camera is 5yrs old and my settings are very limited so the colors just won't show as vibrant as I want them to. I have a Canon T3i and I hear they're up to a T6 or T8 by now. I actually have a new one on my Xmas wish list but I'm not sure I want to splurge right now. We have an upcoming ski trip planned in January during the MLK that I need to prepare for now.

It rained today so I wasn't going to go out of the house at all and take photos unless it stopped. By 3pm it stopped so pieced together this outfit and headed out with my Canon t3i to see if I could get some in before the night fell. It was still pretty cloudy out so I had to crank up the ISO to 6000... it's probably why my sort of burgundy hair looks kind of red. Nothing exciting to report about this outfit, the crocheted knit topper came from Macy's maybe 5yrs ago... the brown top was from bought probably around the same time and the skirt.... well I collect maxi skirts so I have probably two dozen of them!

I'm so glad that I didn't give this little patchwork set to goodwill! Ladies.... you know how we are, if it goes out of style and you think you're never going to wear it again... think again! I've had this set for 15yrs, they're by a company called Miu Miu. I bought it at a little boutique in New York when I was on a layover... I used to be a flight attendant for 20yrs but i'm retired now.

Being retired... it's hard not to get up and put on a pair of leggings...... leggings are my life right now and I have plenty of them. I have to separate them from gym wear to casual wear because leggings meant to be worn in the gym has quite a bit of lycra for the stretch and pull. Even if I don't make it to the gym, I can turn my gym leggings into something a little fashionable by throwing on a pair of boots and a great top and go run errands. Living in CA it's quite the norm to wear legging everyday.

I purchased several great finds on Amazon in the last few weeks! If you follow my blog then you'll know that I try and find items on Amazon similar to those worn by the younger fashionista's that I admire. This dress is made to be worn or layered over several pieces. It can we worn with shorts, a skirt, jeans or even leggings as how I wore them. This gave me the light coverage I needed over my tank top keeping my arms from being exposed while I was out and about in some very cool air conditioned areas.

I don't wear jeans that much but when I do it's a pair from my favorite brand PZI Jeans. I have jeans from this brand dating back to 2007. Before I retired I was introduced to this brand by another Flight Attendant that had curves like mine. We could only wear black jeans through the airports and they couldn't be low rise or hip huggers... yep we had a dress code. This really limited our selections because back then everything was low rise and that didn't suit the figures of the more curvier girls like me. This brand specializes in jeans that flatter curvier women without showing that top butt fat...you know what i'm talking about!
