Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater...

Okay-I need to re-name my blog A eBay Fixation I have been spending so much time endlessly scrolling the fashion items and bidding on everything under the sun!! Two weeks ago I couldn't have cared less about eBay because I am obsessed with Etsy and couldn't be cheating on my favorite place to buy handmade and vintage items. After one of my girlfriends told me she got a BCBG dress on eBay for super cheap my devoted heart started to stray and once I logged onto eBay it was over...I officially need to be on the show Cheaters!!!

This BCBG skirt is one of my first "wins" and it came in the mail a couple days ago. Since then, I have gone a little BID CRAZY to say the least, but thankfully I came to my senses and let others take the lead before I became a hoarder in a house full of eBay items! I did fight and win for a cutie vintage purse that will be showing up next week in one of my posts. Also...stay turned on Monday for the first Closet Clean-Out Giveaway!!!!

Jungle Fever!!!

I am taking baby steps to prepare myself for the fall season....so baby, in fact, you probably didn't even notice my closed toed shoes. I have gone to the deepest depths of my closet and excitedly emerged with my fall shoe collection!!

I have bins of shoes for each season and constantly rotate them out according to the temperature. Hi, my name is Ashley and I am a shoe-aholic! I always get the biggest kick out of opening all my shoe bins and seeing all my pretties eagerly awaiting their time to shine. What I get EVEN more excited about is shoes that I got at the end of the season sales and get to proudly prance around in for the very first time. Oh, fall shoes....mama has missed you!!!

Girl's Night Out Look

"Oh yes, it's ladies night and the feeling's right" because I'm wearing white and my jeans are real tight! Okay, so maybe those are not the EXACT words to Kool and the Gang's song but personally I like my jam better!

I have had this halter top for ages but Saturday night was the first time I have ever worn it. Does anyone else ever do that? Sometimes I buy stuff and wear it right away because I get so excited and other times I buy something on impulse then let it sit in my closet because I never can find anything to go with it or don't have an occasion to bust it out for. Starting next week I am going to start having Closet Clean-Out Giveaways, an idea I borrowed from the super cute Keira at A Pretty Penny so be looking for the first one bright and early Monday morning!!

Under my Umbrella!

This is what I wore for a Saturday morning training class and believe me getting ready was chaotic! I had to provide beverages for the meeting for about 50 women so I was running around like a mad women trying to pack my car and head out the door without forgetting anything. I stopped and took photos outside the new condo (no, we are not moved in all the way yet) and go figure, it started raining.

I have had both the shorts and top for as long as I can remember. This excites me for not one but two different reasons. Number one-I can still fit into these shorts and that it always a good thing as far as I am concerned since they are seriously like 7 years old. Number two-Both pieces have been washed so many times the fabric is super soft and it just feels good. There is nothing like throwing on your "oldies but goodies" when you are pressed for time.

It's Black...It's White

I love the detail on this top, it looks like I have a built in necklace so jewelry is one less step I have to worry about. I did, however, want to accessorize with a belt to break up the black and white colors so I threw my bright yellow one into the mix!

On a totally different non-fashion related topic do you ever feel like you do the same thing day in and day out? Lately I have been feeling like my life has taken on a Groundhog Day quality...remember that Bill Murray movie? I need to break up my routine before I go crazy! I foresee a vacation coming up in my future so I can continue my blog from the comfort of my own home (and not in a mental institution)!!

Vamping It Up!

After the scary, no makeup debacle post from yesterday I decided to vamp it up this Friday and pulled out my red dress, heels and some much needed lipstick!! I will wear makeup with the best of them but when it comes to lipstick I always get so put off. I am way more of a lipgloss girl but looking at these pics today compared to the ones from yesterday some tint on my pout makes a world of difference!

Tomorrow my girlfriends and I are doing a girls night out, hot diggity dog! I cannot wait to get dressed up and chat, gossip, laugh and complain with my besties!! Have a wonderful weekend and remember you can NEVER have too much happy.

Lace and Pearls and Rose Colored Pants!

Since lace is one of the big trends coming up for fall I thought it would be appropriate to wear my black lace shirt today to make myself feel "current" with the trends. I always feel a little frisky when wearing lacey items (it must be the see through aspect) so I paired it with pearls to sweeten it up a bit. I really, really am on the lookout for a white lace shirt and also love this super affordable black and white skirt from Target.

These pants were another purchase from the tax free weekend. I was drawn to them because they were a different color chino pant than the average black or khaki. What can I say...dare to be different!


This last picture looks like I am seriously in need of some more makeup or at least a bold smokey eye to look alive. Check out Keiko Lynn's blog for a great tutorial!!!!

Rush Hour...

I was running soooooo far behind yesterday so I am sorry for the lack of pizazz in my outfit! I literally threw on the first thing I saw that would go together and tried to run out the door when I realized I forgot my wedding ring (WHO DOES THAT) and had to turn around and go back home. I guess I could have driven straight to work but not wearing wedding ring=that's how rumors get started...insert any celebrity couple here.

So here we are with a plain pink skirt and a plain white shirt, not even a belt or necklace. I am so ashamed at myself I may go home and rig up a couple of "late day" preventable outfits just so this doesn't happen again in the future.
