Sassy Satin Pants

Hi there friends! It has been a while, and I am trying to get things done on the blog which will be up soon over at http://www.glamorousandgeeky.com. I have been wanting to get things changed for a while there, the blog name and such. It was time friends. Time. I made the new years resolution to A. get some shorts(still have not done) and B. To get the blog changed to the new name etc. And I am so excited. SO excited! And while waiting on the new blog to be finished being ported over to the new URL. I am going to write here and just transfer things myself. Because I am an Elvish Wizard like that.

Hehe.

Anyways, going back through my pictures and blog posts of old posts( we are talking since 2009) I have learned something. My mad photo skillz have gotten WAAAAYY better and my writing too. Isn’t awesome, and I saw in my old as hell horrible posts that I found my direction and grew once I found it. Went from a collage site mostly posting things like Gucci and such things I probably wouldn’t own for a long time(I own some Gucci clothes now and DVF and Tibi,by shopping really smart and thanks to sites like The Real Real)

20170402_143421

But, yeah. My site started to grow and I started to get comments. When I first started blogging I honest to gawd had no idea what to write about, what to do, how to do it. And no one being supportive AT ALL. It was me, myself, and I. And since my blog has started to gain some momentum, I am starting to get some family behind it and such. This was more to me than just a hobby,

It was a life saver.

I started to take my blog more seriously after I had my little. I was really, really depressed. I have that tendency anyways. We wont go into that right now. But, I had bad post partum. I even blogged about it on Blogher and was told in the comments that it was in my head. ACTUALLY, no. It isn’t, it is a chemical imbalance in the brain caused by hormones and influxes.

I also read PROblogger on my Kindle and learned a lot. And then started to research how to blog better. And so here we are today.  A long cry almost from the start. I then was using my crappy phone and Ipad for blog photos. I had no SAM(my tripod) and no remote, and candy camera app. It was something I am happy I improved upon.Once I got better pictures and really asserted myself I got more sponsors. (i still use a camera phone. But let me be honest, some of the phones are so high tech they can beat out the cheapest DSLR in quality.I still want a Nikon or Cannon DSLR) I named my blog Gofashiondeals for the worst reasons and that is there was no reason. No thought to it. I just did it because I felt pressure to make a name. And I kicked my own butt for it since. Until now.

20170402_143412

I made the decision that 2017 I would revamp the blog to be more reflective of me and my weirdness. AKA my personality. I am a GAMER, I am a HUGE Fashionista, I am a MOM, I am a WIFE, I am obsessed with MAKEUP, and I am a big BOOK WORM. I am all of those things and I do it all glamorously. And that is why the new blog is Glamorous and Geeky. Because I am. I am glamorous and geeky. And I am hoping that the site is up soon, because this sucks. MY hubby suggested I blog on this Temp thing here until then because I wont stop complaining about the time. My blog had a lot of content….and uh…yeah. HAHAHA

SO yeah…I am looking forward to this. And I hope you all are too!

Well, everyone’s been talking about their white pants.Their white pants, got their white pants on.

OK, so this is actually the only pair of white pants I own, weird I know. I love the way white pants look. However, with a 4yr old, they are a dirt and dirty hands magnet. For instance he wiped his Doritos laden hands on my pants later in the day. Yup. Nice. And since I too am also a klutz it is a reason why I never wear white pants. I have white skirts, and i fear for them every time I wear them. #momlife That is just how it is I guess. Right?

OOTD gofashiondeals

So what made me bring them back out? Well, since my little is in school now I figured why not?! SO I wore these cute Target white cropped skinnies with my Express shirt that I have had for ages just always wear it tucked in with a maxi or or midi skirt. Like in this post here . So yup. And pulled out my old DOONEY  . But alas, his school day was cut short as he was not himself. Sometimes meltdowns happen and so it really takes it out of the kid. But, this turned out to be later he is sick AGAIN. There were several littles not in class for being sick. Got to love that they share Everything. Right? NO….somethings they SHOULD not share. Germs..ugh. Oh well. And so he got home and I made him some food for a snack and my pants became victim of little.

That is OK, I am used to it and that my friends is why there is Spray n’ wash.

OOTD bloggerSO this was another outfit I was going to shoot elsewhere and ended up doing it at home because of reasons above. We have to make do. But it still worked out.

Sam and I made it work. If you don’t know who SAM is read this post here . We got it done.

Things were alright. Except the lack of sleep last night do to new big boy bed and coughing, sneezing, snotty nose, and grumpy child.

Poor kid and poor mama.

What can you do, I just let him sleep in the bed after the 4th time of getting into bed with us after hearing how he was breathing.

Is that bad?

Skreened tee and Miista Sandals

Skreeened mordor shirt and Miista shoes
Wearing : Skreened tee // Express jeans similar // MIISTA sandals // Mohzy tech bag// Urban decay VIce city trap queen lipstick

So yeah this shirt is on repeat.I can’t help it. I love a good basic graphic tee. And this one makes me so happy to wear, even if it has to do with a place not so happy in Middle Earth. The Mordor shirt from Skreened is one that is comfy and I never get tired of. Paired with a great pair of flares like these from EXPRESS and some gilded MIISTA sandals you can not go wrong. For a pop of color I added a micro bag(something that is weird for a big bag lady like me) . And I love the fact my hair is starting to get angry a sure fire way to say hey summer is coming! My hair, is getting poofy and trying to go back to curly.

one does not simply walk in

Everyone needs a sam.

Have you noticed that in everyone needs their own Sam? In LOTR Frodo has a Sam, in GOT John Snow has a Sam, Dean has a Sam, and I think in Mass Effect(my own opinion) your tech implant has a name SAM.SO, since I take my own pictures I have decided to name my silly ass tripod SAM. What made me think of this was actually a bit on Instagram, a blogger was talking about how her little sometimes takes her pictures and the weird looks she gets. And I thought, that is why I take my own. But, the weird looks I get are as I have said before Daunting. It feels a tad narcissistic sure. OK, a lot.

Being a blogger especially a blogger that write primarily about outfits and fashion etc, I take pictures of my outfits. And I like getting out of the house sometimes to do so. So, weird looks are part of the territory for me and SAM. (pfftheh) Like today, weird looks from passer byes. Lots of them, and I just went on my business. If they want to know what I am up to they could stop the cars and ask or walk up and ask. I probably (you all know my problems with this kind of stuff) would nervously say what I am doing and or awkwardly state it in a way that would make no sense to anyone.

And let me say SAM is the best photo partner, never complains, never gets tired. Perfect for me and my shoots. Right? SAM. Good ol SAM.

Oh that boho charm, 2 OOTD.

justfab romper and breckelles shoes
So it feels a lot like summer has hit, it is March still and already it feels like the middle of June. It was 90 degrees today in Orlando! WHAT?! How crazy, well I guess it is Florida and all.
Today’s outfit post is more of a what I wore what I wore. Since yesterday, I had to change right after I wore this. Ill tell you what happened after I pause my Mass Effect Andromeda AND tell you about this outfit.

OK, so this amazing blue bell sleeve romper is from Justfab, which I wore here and these awesome Breckelle’s gladiators as well as my NEW Rocksbox set. Kendra Scott brought out the new gold glass collection and I was lucky to get the set. YAY!

I love the sleeves of this romper and that it will be so flattering on so many different people. The golden necklace is perfect and the sandals are just so SUMMER!

They have a zip up back and that is something I really love! I got these babies on Nordstrom about a year to 2 years ago and am so happy I did. But, I will be honest at first I did NOT know how to style them. WHAT?! no really I had not a clue. Wow. Blogger blunder right there.

Oh well, after a lot of Pinterest browsing. I figured it out. And here we are.

justfab boho romper
SO, what was I talking about earlier?? Well, let me just say that yesterday was a series of unfortunate events. Just one after another. And the seriousness of them worse and worse. Of which I am not entirely sure I can actually talk about. Since I didn’t exactly witness the crash just the aftermath and let me say, I had no idea people could bleed like that. Just things that would haunt you and that is all I am going to say because I was able to finally eat. SO, back to the more light hearted bit, after shooting this outfit, I got home and before going in the house I took my shoes off, which I have been doing a lot lately as my cats like to sit by the garage door waiting on me. And I have stepped on them. So, I took these off. Walked in the door. and WHOOP I slipped on cat mess(pee yuck) and fell in my cute ass romper on my ass. YES. how fun, luckily my head hit my handbag. I have travertine tiles…so,that would have been bad.

The cat mess, soaked my romper and so I had to take a quick shower because GROSS and then get the romper in the wash ASAP. So I changed into this….

I love these ALDO shoes so much and these MANGO pants. Just the most comfy things ever and after that slip I needed it. OH and Aunt Irma visited so there was that too, hello cramps! (aunt Irma is from IT Crowd,go NETFLIX it now! OH my god hilarious show is hilarious!

Outfit of the day, green shirt dress and graphic tee.

green ootd

To say I love this tee is an understatement. I adore this tee, ADORE it! You wouldn’t blame me either when you feel how soft the tee is. A great graphic tee and a great texture shirt. I decided to wear it with my green shirt dress from Target and H&M leggings. And of course my JUSTFAB shoes and bag. My hair was crazy so I wore it up in a top knot. I love outfits like this when you just got to the closet and grab the pieces you want to wear and not think about it.

No thinking just fashion. Just comfy.

TArget style and justfab

Today is justa  sum up of my week or rather MARCH in general. I was supposed to volunteer at my son’s school as ELSA, and murphy’s law came up and slapped me in the face. Maybe it is Karma for making fun of Mass Effect Andromeda so much lately. Anways, I have really bad PMS and neck spasms. The medication makes me retain water, and of course PMS makes you just Bleh everywhere. SO, I finally tried on the dress again(which fit last week) and the zipper was like “NOPE” and I couldn’t get it to zip at all. Wonderful, embarrassing. SO, I wore different bras, a spanx thing and nope. I did get the dress zipped at one point to which it didn’t stay zipped. Now when the dress was originally made it was measured a bit off. And there was not a lot of wiggle room. So, yeah, I had to tell them I couldn’t do it. Which hurts. I cried over a dress. A silly dress, and disappointing the kiddies. Crap. I feel like the worse person ever.

What I wore Wednesday ; Striped H&M crop

H&M crop top Stylewe Culottes Justfab HEELS
Here is to not the heck knowing what to call a post I am sitting here with phone in grabbing range due to my needing to get the little from school earlier than planned. A nose bleed that was awful, now most of the time it isn’t something to go home over, other than bloody clothes can be changed. But, he kept putting his fingers in his little nose. Poor baby. .I meant to shoot this outfit out and about yesterday. Was ready to go, tripod set, camera set,makeup on and clothes are perfect. Got in the car and ring a ding ding, the school was calling me to pick up my little. SO, life happens and things get pushed back or in my case you learn to just roll with it. Having a child with ASD(autism spectrum disorder), you learn to just roll with it. Life is never black in white. And for us, I am happy as hell with our technicolor craziness.

So, I shot these pictures in home. As best I could with a little who was on the couch watching Sesame Street.

WHat I wore Black and white outfit

The outfit, stripes. I love stripes and I am happy to share this shirt again. I have had this shirt for a while from H&M, and I never wear it enough. Mostly because for the longest time I was having a “derp” moment on styling. M’kay. For me that is hilarious.You know How I love my monochrome outfits, so why the massive brain fart for so long with me I can not say! EH.I wore it with some high waist Culottes and my justfab heels(which I was in and out of, since my foot is still recovering from that horrible sprain).

gofashiondealsSo that has been my week so far. It is never a dull moment. And I just am hoping we catch a break soon. ON a positive note my little stayed in bed! Thank you to Ruth of Mylittlenest for all the words of encouragement! If you haven’t checked out her blog you totally should!

Purple Pastels outfit

pastel outfit of the day

Hello there and happy Monday! Bleh Monday’s is more like it, am I right? Yeah. Anways, today I was feelin the spring vibes and so I got out the flowy purple skirt and purple heels. Then thought, crap what to wear with this? Ummmm….crap. SO, I did the logical ME thing and grabbed the nearest graphic tee which is this one from H&M which I love so much! And put the two together because why not?! It is my go to. Since it was 45 degrees outside I wore a denim jacket also H&M, and what is great is as it warms up a bit I can still keep the jacket on without dying.

That is a plus right? Sure.

gofashiondealsWhat even is this face? OK, so this outfit, I love it. It is totally spring, it is so much fun to wear because when you wear a skirt like this it is just begging to be twirled in and tossed about.

SPring ootd

Like that BAM. The great thing about this kind of Chiffon Midi skirt is they are super affordable. The trick is finding this kind of chiffon skirt. Most people are doing tulle right now, so chiffon has gone more to a maxi skirt and they sometimes are NOT as flowing as this one. OR rather twirl worthy. (although I do have some that are) REst assured I will have found some and will link to something similar below. Promise.

#ootd Gofashiondeals

 

SO, i am hoping pain is not showing on my face. I twisted my ankle on a cat last night. OUCH. MY big furball cat decided laying down in front of me while I was walking was a great and marvelous cat thing to do. And Well, I tripped over him. And I twisted the heck out of my ankle there. The left one. This was also the same foot healing from a couch related injury. My furniture attacks me. Anyways, It is hurting(still is) And for this shoot I took my ankle wrap off. Because it just looks awful(there is a coffee stain on it. from when I dropped some iced coffee on the foot.)  I(after this ) took the shoe off, put the brace back on and am wearing the SpongeBob Squeeky shoes. Then because I was having a rough morning I treated myself to a new skirt and shirt(yes another tee) and a cup of Starbucks. The Spring cups are blank and meant for you to draw on them. So I DID. I drew how I was feeling. You may have seen it on my insta stories.

And Instagram @gofashiondeals

Mondays…..Ugh.

My cup is secretly judging my TOO FACED lippie there… if you want to see why read this here. I love that makeup brand just this time around things are not fairing well. Read up and you will know why.
