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 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.



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)


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.


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!

I have been looking for some high waisted pants. And Satin pants thanks to ETRO spring/summer 2017 show. You can see my faves from that show here. Anways, I was shopping around my new fave online shop TOBI when I saw these E.SSUE pants on sale. And they were Satin, they were high waisted, and they are now mine! And for under $20! They are also wide leg pants. So comfy and so lightweight perfect for this spring and summer. Satins will still be very big and so will the sequins! Anyways, I snatched up the pants and when I got them I knew exactly what top to wear with. My Hobbit tank from Skreened. I put on some strappy ALDO sandals and grabbed my blush Devin tote from Justfab. Instant geek glam. This outfit was a match made in heaven. YEs, just so much yes!

The wind was making today’s shoot almost a nightmare. My husband took out my weight for the tripod of the car. EEK! It was so windy. But luckily my little helper was with me.

He was SUPPOSED to be in school, but his allergies have been bad lately. SO, he was up and down all night coughing and sneezing from it. And I forgot his cough meds. SO he was up and therefore so was I.

I think collectively I have gotten, maybe 15 hours of sleep this past week. It has been this way since he came down with that horrible cold. MAMA is over tired. Anyways. MY little was here with me, I was trying to wear him out and he as an over abundance of energy.

MANGO kids

Told him to “blogger” and this was his reaction. He wanted me to shoot him this way. HA, I just go with it.

How cute is his MANGO kids outfit? I am in love with their kids line BTW.


OK, so I got some other things from TOBI, new fleece yoga pants that I have lived in since I got in the mail. And a shirt with some bling details, but, oh that but. It is BACKLESS!!!! And the way this blouse is, which is also a crop, it needs to have more substance in the back. Why? Well the back being open makes it fit wrong in the front. The blouse moves too much and horrible. I will have to add either a zipper half way up OR buttons. Because there is no way in MORDOR I am wearing it the way it is. Not because it is backless, no but because how it warps the whole shirt. They needed to think it through a bit more.


And that is the thing friends I want to be honest as pie with you lot, and that is why I am telling you my fails and triumphs in this. Like in my H&M shirt hilarity post from the other day. But, since these are final sale I have to make it work as Tim Gunn would say.

“Make it work”

I will sir, I will.
