My 10 Holiday Activities

Posted on by Miss Sassy in Fashion | 2 Comments

Hello! I’ll be taking a short break from blogging during this holiday season.

Your support has been AMAZING this year.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I’m looking forward to another great year of style with you.

I wish you a blessed and wonderful holiday season!

Before I go, here’s how I will be enjoying my break…

 

1. Prayer and Meditation. I start and end my day with prayer and meditation.

God and my faith are at the core of all that I do.

2. Community Service. I usually like to get involved on my own or with my sorority sisters.  My time was spent with some wonderful seniors yesterday.  We enjoyed games, food, getting to know them and some Christmas caroling.  Another favorite activity is to participate in feeding needy families. Tis’ the season to give your heart and time to someone in need.

3. Celebrating Love. I’ll be attending a friend’s wedding and celebrating the love that they have found. I hope that you find love this season and beyond.

4.  Disney World.  A day at Disney World with my family is on the agenda. We are all so excited! Just some wholesome fun that my nieces and nephew can build memories from. Hello, Minnie, can I borrow that dress?!

5. Baking & Decorating Cookies. This has become an easy tradition for me and it’s always best when shared.  I’m going to probably eat more gingerbread cookies than I should. Oh well!

6. Some Pampering. This girl needs a great massage.  I usually do this on the last day of the year. It gets me all relaxed and ready for the new year.

7. Going to see SELMA. I can’t wait! The cast is phenomenal. I’m ready for this film to get some Oscars.  I am very proud of Ava DuVernay for putting this on the big screen. The timing is perfect. This is a recent photo of the cast at a premiere for the film. Good job!

8. Donating.  I’ve already started putting some items aside to donate to those who are less fortunate. Dress for Success is usually my charity of choice but I will also be making a stop at the Salvation Army.

9. Drinking plenty of Haitian Egg Nog.  It’s thick, creamy  and loaded with grown up liquor.  No holiday is complete for this Haitian gal without this goodness. Yummmm!

image

10. Parties, parties, and more parties. I’ve been enjoying this for the last couple of weeks and looking forward to a couple more. Cozy, house parties are definitely my favorite. I just prefer an intimate setting to share the Christmas spirit and the hope of all that the new year will offer.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!

Sunday Style

Posted on by Miss Sassy in Fashion | 6 Comments

Nothing easier to wear on a bright Sunday morning than my little black Loft dress.

This dress takes me from morning worship service, brunch, then to the Christmas show.

You can also wear this dress without tights, with flats or with boots.

I chose comfortable, low-key black pumps for a long day.

Thrifting Tips

Posted on by Miss Sassy in Fashion | Leave a comment

 I’ve been getting a lot more questions lately about what I call ‘The Art of Thrifting.’

OK! It’s the busy holiday season so I won’t take too much of your time.

Here are EIGHT tips for a great, FIRST experience:

(Oh, this sweater is one of my favorite thrifted pieces, from years ago)

vintage sweater Instagram

1-      DETERMINE YOUR BUDGET: A budget of $200 for multiple items from the thrift store will get you a long way if you follow the other tips below. Start slow.

2-      MAKE A LIST: The list should include items that your wardrobe needs fairly immediately. For the Fall/Winter seasons, you’re usually safe with a list that includes slacks, a nice pencil skirt to wear with booties, sweater dresses, jeans, for those riding boots, party shoes for all of those fab holiday shingdings, flats, cardigans, and blazers. Throw in a couple of handbags, hats and other accessories too.

3-      FIND LOCATIONS: Find thrift stores near you by clicking HERE. This is a great resource for getting it all mapped out and selecting the stores for your thrifting experience. You also can’t go wrong with the Salvation Army and Goodwill stores that you probably pass on your daily commute. Also take advantage of thrifty boutiques and vintage shops in your neighborhood. Items there will add personality to the basic pieces that you buy.

Pencil Skirt

I’ve linked up with BLM Girls to show you how I wear my pencil skirt in the Fall!

Pencil skirts are so feminine and show off those nice curves.

You can dress them up with heels and a blouse or with flats and a cute sweatshirt.
