BOAFB CLOSET COLLECTION NOVEMBER 2015

November was my comeback month!  This was extremely fun coming back after a few months hiatus AND hitting it like I never left.  This was a month of out of the box choices and combining different weather scenarios as we are almost at Winter here in MI.  I thank you all for joining me on my return journey and here's to many more!  Let's take a look back at some faves from the month of November, with a hint of October!

CHRISTMAS 2015 WISHLIST

By now, all of the deliciousness of Thanksgiving has settled (even though I'm going to keep going back for more), the dishes are all washed and my apartment is cleaned from the festivities, it's time to start thinking of this year's Christmas season! Of course, it's all about giving rather than receiving, however it never hurts to put together a wishlist. I like to do wishlists of things that I know I want so that I can 1.) keep account and 2.) prioritize my future purchases!

I like to do wishlists of things that I know I want so that I can 1.) keep account and 2.) prioritize my future purchases!

This list consists of things that I plan on definitely buying, whether it's now or later. I know my big ticket items, ie camera and laptop, will be more of a future purchase because I cant see me dropping ALL of that money on myself right before the holidays. I also have to take into consideration that my husbands birthday is next week and my son's birthday is 3 days after Christmas. You can imagine what my wallet looks like in Nov., Dec. and Jan - it's screaming "why am I so empty?"! Nonetheless, I can still get a few goodies here and there until my list is complete!

Happy Friday loves and hope you enjoy your weekend! ♥

NOV '15 | ROCKSBOX #RBITGIRL

I'm pretty excited about this post today because I just received my first Rocksbox!!  What is Rocksbox you ask?  Well founder, Meaghan, grew tired of purchasing jewelry and only wearing it once or twice.  She wanted that luxury without the hassle, expense and clutter, thus Rocksbox is born!  It's a service that gives youaccess to wear unlimited designer jewelry, with the option to buy the pieces you love!  Not happy with one them, send it back!

FIRST SNOW

Okay, so this makes WAY better sense than the 70+ degree weather we were having just a couple short weeks ago.  The skies opened up late Friday night/early Saturday morning and did not let up the entire day!  Some areas got around 6" of snow, while us lower Easterners in MI only got a few.  As pretty as it is and no matter how much Mr. Weatherman warned us, I totally wasn't ready for the first of what I'm sure will be many rounds of the cold, white stuff! 

CREATIVES UNIFORM

Welcome to the weekend everyone! We made it! I started out the week completely exhausted, but knowing that is Friday gave me a pep in my step to create this black on black fit! You can never go wrong in all black, it's the hairstylist and makeup artist uniform! You think sexy and sultry donning the darkest neutral shade and it's the perfect transition color!

HAIR | NATURAL WAVES


Happy mid week everyone!!  No fashion post today, but I do want to share with you my latest "baby" added to the collection.  If you guys have been with me for a while, then you know that my first love is my hair.  It's been my thing since about age 15, my love for creating different styles and pushing limits.  This unit has got to be one of the most diverse styles I've tried in a long time. The fact that I can straighten it or keep it in it's kinky state is a hair connoisseur's dream!

PERFECTLY IMPERFECT

MONDAYS!!!  Aghhhh!  I am normally totally fine with Monday, but today, I am SOOOOO tired, it's crazy!  The last week or so has been a complete whirlwind in my household and I believe that it's starting to catch up with me.  That's the reason this post is up so late, just tired!

BURGUNDY SUEDE

See, I told you I would have something feisty for you guys in time for the weekend!  The last time I wore this camel colored combo, I was compared to Cookie Lyon from Empire, which I still find funny to this day. :)  The beautiful jeweled hue of this mock neck dress demanded I revisit the neutral shades in these pieces!  Burgundy is one of my favorite colors because I think it works really well with my skin tone, so that's why this beauty is in my closet!

SPEAKING OF BASIC

It's funny that I'm posting this because in FALL TEMPS, I made mention that "if I'd styled [the last outfit] a different way, it would be basic!" and then there's this outfit!  Ever so often, we have our down days. But who's to say that you have to look like you don't wanna go out in the world?  When I shot these, it seems like everything was thrown at my way, preventing me from getting into the appropriate "mood" to shoot, so YES, basic it is!

FALL TEMPS

Welcome MI Fall temperatures!  Last week, we had record breaking weather with temps in the 70's for most of the week!  Guess what, Mother Nature decided it was time to go back to normal, so cheers to breaking out the comfy knits for keeping warm and cozy!

CLEAN LINES

I'm a firm believer of if I buy something, it's getting worn more than once.  I've been approached on many occasion like "I've seen you wear that before!" and my response is always "yeah, because I bought it!".  Where did the rule "if it's been worn or blogged that it can never see daylight again" come from?  That's not only silly, but also not economical.  I would live in the mall, always be broke and my husband would probably kill me!

BUFFALO PLAID

This dress makes every fiber of my being tingle!  See, I don't think you understand, I want you guys to FEEL my excitement about this dress right here.  Let's go down the checklist.  Button down: check!  Whirly skirt: check!  Hi-lo hem: check!  Buffalo Plaid: check!  I could really go on and on about how much this dress makes me happy!

DENIM + SUEDE

Happy Monday everyone!  Lately, I've been trying to step out of my comfort zone with my style. You know how you browse and you see items that you only dream of wearing but you know in the back of your mind that you would never look good in it?  Well, that was me with this denim shirt dress.  I've seen this on so many people and they look amazing in it but I just knew I would look like Nintendo Wii character!  I gave it a try anyway, and I am glad I did!
