Sassy Satin Pants

ootd

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)

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.

bluepants ESSUE

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!

Alucard and Hogwarts.OOTD

OK, so if you saw this post here, you may have seen me talking about these great structured handbags. And one in particular was one from Justfab.com. That bag was the Alucard. So, when Justfab offered to send me the Alucard bag I jumped for joy. Because not only do I LOVE the name. But the bag itself is GORGEOUS!

Justfab AlucardThe color is a rich and vibrant red. The faux leather is pretty heavy. And it is very very spacious. It could hold all my crap, his crap, and everyone else’s crap too. I love the buckle details on the front of the bag and the tag. It comes with shoulder straps. although it looks(imo) weird with them. The bag it pretty big, so wearing them looks off. It it was small, like a micro bag I could see that it would work better. I kinda wish that Justfab would make this bag in several sizes. It reminds me so much of one of the Prada Saffiano bag. Only that one doesn’t have the buckles.

tee: TARGET// pants H&M // Shoes: justfab(old) // Bag JUSTFABc/o // Jacket Target(old)

SO, when I got this bag I immediately knew what to wear with it. OR rather style with it. I just bought this Hogwarts tee from Target and the red from the insignia made it just pop out more. You all knw how much I love my nerd tees. Got to be that GlamourslyGeeky right?

Justfab alucard and justfab alucardSo, it was kind of chilly and so my cotton peacoat was the right option. To make the illusion of longer legs, I opted for booties that matched my pants. (tip)

hogwartsOK, so I brought my son with me and took pictures of him, and right here he was leaning against the wall really cute in the background then moved last minute making me want to pull out my hair. SOmetimes he works with me, sometimes he just wants to run around. Can’t say I  blame him.

OOTDHere is an outtake from the shoot. hahaha.

He is like bye mom I’m out!

I love that kid. Anyways the bag, the bag, the bag! THis bag is gorgeous and the pictures do it no justice! I love the structured look.

JUSTFAB

 

THis is right when I lost the jacket battle with him.

this kid.

Always on the move.

And one thing before I go, Justfab. I have been a loyal customer of them for years and years..  I have seen a few things around of people calling them a scam. They charge a monthy fee for VIP where you get shoes for 39.95 a month. You earn rewards points too for each purchase. Anyways, people tend to think this is the scam. It isn’t it is no different than say having a subscription box charging you 10-30 a month for their boxes. Only difference here is you choose what shoes you want. OR handbags. ETC. I’m not as thrilled with their clothes, which is why I never post on them. Anyways, you can forgo the membership and pay full price. You can cancel anytime, and they email you about a week in advance letting you know they are going to charge so you can either skip or go on. I also set an alarm on my phone, Ipad, and PC to remind me that it is happening. SO I can skip if I need to. I have been skipping a bit lately as I have a lot of shoes.  I hope this helps clarify things. If you have any other questions about JUSTFAB email me and Ill answer ya. I have been a brand ambassador for a while and LOVE it. Because I do LOVE this brand. I was a loyal customer before being an ambassador. Thanks for reading!

Aeropostale sweater and white pants. Thursday linkyroo

Areopostale sweater ootd
sweater: Aeropostale here// Pants Target similar from HM here// boots ALDO// bag COACH

I tried all day to get this outfit on the blog, but when you have a little one home, sometimes they need you more than the blog does. SO, I spent the day dancing around the house with my son and neglecting the blog. OOPS. And the thing is I do have some blog posts that MUST, get done! AHHH. Anyways here we are and Christmas is soon! Glorious Christmas. I feel like it has been an off year, we are allowed those right?

green and white outfit of the day

This outfit was one that imidiatley popped into my head when I bought the sweater the other day at Aeropostale Christmas shopping for my little one. We bought him the cutest clothes from The Children’s Place!

We love that place!

Anyways, i love this sweater and when I found it I knew I had to have it. Because it is a loose knit sweater, which is great for a Florida winter. It can be nice and warm and nice and cool.

blogger outfits

The sweater has such a great texture and it is incredibly soft. I love the bit of black detail with it too. The only thing about this sweater is that since the Store was closing, rebranding I think, it may not be available anymore. Which sucks. AHHH. No. I think I want to attempt to go back to a store and get one in red, if there are any left. But since the mall was really dead(everyone shopping online) I figured it wouldn’t be bad.

I love that these white pants are so comfy and they look great with this green sweater and these black ALDO boots!

 

I will post something to get a similar look below! Since the sweater may not be around.

Holiday ootd and Fighting with Mother Nature

Green Plaid dress Target white skirt
plaid dress: TARGET//skirt: Express similar// Boots ALDO similar

Hi there friends! Today, is a fun post! OR maybe not depends on how you look at it. Today started out so well and so good. Then Mother Nature had to come in and SLAP me right in the face and punch me in the gut.  I was starting out my day writing about this outfit above and then gave up on that outfit because let’s face it some times are worse than others and yeah…um…yeah.

UGH!

green dress white skirt

 

So we go from that right there which is a cute green shirt dress from Target and adorable Bubble skirt from Express but I found one at SHEIN as well as the gorgeous OTK ALDO boots to a pair of ACNE Studios what I call my “comfy time” pants. Which they are fantastic pants, I mean they are Acne Studio, but I only wear them when I want to be really comfy and baggy clothes wearing. But still I was wearing something that was so cute and so me and so awesome and I ended up not caring because Mother Nature is evil and struck me down when I was feeling awesome! Now I am curled up on the couch book in hand hating my pain. Cramps are the worst.  ANd yet I cant read because I am distracted by the everything else. And So I am going to play some Fallout 4 on the XboxOne. MY son loves the sound track and dances around the house while I play.

OOTD for the holidays

And I want to eat every French fry in the house and every ounce of chocolate. SO, yeah. Today’s blog post is me bitching about that. Sorry. Really though, let me get back on track. If there was a track for me to begin with. I mean this is me we are talking about and I am sometimes not the most Scholarly human being. But, since the majority of my reader base is women, I am certain, lady friends that you all know this feeling too well.

OOTD bloggerToday’s outfit is a easy one for the holiday gathering. This green shirtdress makes a great shirt and paired with a white or black bubble skirt can just take it up a notch. Add some oh so gorgeous OTK boots and a very sparkly statement necklace and you have a great holiday outfit.

And then to go from that to the comfy I need chocolate,wine, and a heating pad.

gofashiondealsRight now, what I am actually wearing now. And what I was hoping to read, and yes the picture was crooked. My son keep moving things. He messed with the painting a min before I took the picture.

Isnt it amazing how we can go from “put together” to hair up in a messy bun comfy pants on and reading in a matter of minutes.

Now , I know what you are thinking why post the other stuff. Well because as much as I am the fashion bloggery blogger person. I also want you all to know it isn’t always picture perfect. Like my skin is having awesome hormonal breakouts. YAY! And I don’t photoshop that stuff out, why? Well because it is what it is, and well I am lazy. HAHAH. But that is what you get here, most I do is mess with lighting or do black and white pictures. Anyways. My blog and life are not always black and white. And not always is it in Technicolor either. Sometimes it is just a kaleidoscope of what the hell just happened?

ootd blogger

I mean that is what blogs are right? A place of sharing fashion, ideas, thoughts, all that jazz. And that is perfect!

P.s. sorry for the abundance of PMS and “that time of the month” references. Hey it is life.

White and Grey outfit

I swear when it comes to catchy titles you wont find that here. Or at least often. That is OK, you probably are not here for my catchy blog titles, more for the outfits and banter. Right?  Today, there is something I want to get off my shoulders.
//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js
bloggerootdYeah, my shirt. I wore this outfit a week or so ago, but was so busy running errands I didn’t really get to share it! I know that is naughty. I love this look, yeah it is fall sort of right now, but I am going to wear my whites all year.

20160921_0859291Today’s outfit consists of this adorable off shoulder shirt that I bought from SHEIN. I love it because it reminds me of the one by Tibi, but it is more affordable. I like that it is flowy so if you have a bloaty day(thanks pms) it hides it. I love wearing this shirt with pants, skirts, I don’t have shorts so I cant say that. But you get the idea. It is a great shirt. I am wearing the accessories I got from yesterday’s blog post and youtube video which you can read here.

sheinshirt

I also want to do a little rant here, it really isn’t important. You all know I take my own pictures, and for the most part I get left alone. It is still weird taking my own pictures especially in public, but the way I see it if Vloggers can vlog and talk to themselves in public or in airports then I can take a couple of freaking pictures. I actually enjoy taking my own pictures. The only thing is it gets lonely. But, that aside I enjoy being in total control. Except for the people around me. Today it was like they were popping up randomly like Pokémon on pokemon go. YES I still play. Hahaha. #gameratheart But yeah, I didn’t get as many pictures as I wanted. Why? Self consciousness is why. I need to build it a bridge and get over it. Right? It is a process, for someone who is introverted it is hard.

OK back to the outfit sheesh, me and my rambling. OK, so yeah I brought out the white pants and a laser cut bag that is from Justfab. But this bag unfortunately isn’t available anymore, but I will link to something that will work instead. You guys know I shop my closet a lot. It is fun.

Coffee is not optional here, holy crap she got white pants!

20160916_085434_0011

Today, was another Mom what the heck days. I got up on time and we were not with it. WE being my husband and I. Tiny child just wanted mama snuggles and I just wanted to snuggle him. My husband is under the weather and I know he just wanted to laze about. Well no rest for the weary. And off we went. One to school, one to work, and one to do blogger work. THe last one being me. At least my hair is under control. Right?

I know you can see the tripod..I was fighting light….AHHH! There is a interesting story about today’s shoot.An my pants were misbehaving, and I forgot one leg was rolled up. I really needed to drink that coffeeeeeeee.

 

 

FAll outfit . White pants and black graphic tee.OK, so last time I was here there was no one,today there were joggers. Trying to avoid being in the background and getting in the way. There were the curious on lookers trying to figure out what in the name of Middle Earth I was doing. And then there was a lady arguing with herself and slapping herself. So yeah fun. I was not bothered by anyone but still I wasn’t about to stick around too long. And then the Pokémon Hunters showed up, which I was one of them!

MAGICKDERP
A wild MAgicKDERP

 

So, yeah this is what happens when you take pictures of yourself by yourself in public. Something I still am working on with confidence. Yes, I have a lack of that sometimes. Which is why it is taking forever for me to finish up my YouTube Video on VoxBox. I just am shy.

white and black outfit of the day

I love my monochrome outfits and aside from the weird situation with my pants not behaving. It looks great! Now one thing I know I have said A LOT in the past was ” I will never own white pants because of reasons.) Well look at what I am wearing. I am also wearing these after Labor day! SHOCK! OK let me say something about white after labor day, it was because people didn’t want to ruin their white clothes in the snow and slush. It really had nothing to do with it being socially unacceptable, OK in the 1900’s yeah it was kind of that but there is more to that then you think. It was mostly season related. In summer whites reflected heat and in winter you switched out to more thicker and darker frocks to stay WARM. Interesting right? SO, this is modern era, and I say lets just wear white whenever. M’kay.

A striped tee part 1.

We all know how much I like to “shop” my closet. I believe a person’s closet is much like playing with Legos. There are millions of combinations to do with clothes just like there is with a bucket of Legos. SO, the next two outfit posts are how to style a simple striped tee. I know it sounds exciting or maybe a bit repetitive, but it will be fun and such. You can make a great outfit or two with one item. You can even keep the accessories the same and change one thing. It still comes out as a whole new look. Isn’t fashion neat like that? You get to be creative.

//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.jsToday, I went with the mint and navy striped shirt that I got a while ago(meaning I have no idea how long ago) from Target. It is a nice soft cotton and isn’t too thin or too thick of material. It goes perfect with skirts and jeans. Day or night. It is a great addition for the momiform. striped and jeans I love wearing this with skinnies and since it is supposed to be fall(ha) I wore some booties. Paired with a grey hat from ALDO and grey quilted faux leather bag from EXPRESS it is a great outfit for running around with the little lad. Errand running never looked sleeker! OOTD stripes and jeans day This shirt is one you can take through the seasons. Which is great! I am all about pieces that can be incorporated into the rest of my wardrobe. Plus finding things like that can save you money. Trends are great but having staples are so important. Because you can mix them with the trends a lot of the time. This shirt and jeans would work with a great pair of fringe booties or just a fringe bag and other kind of shoes. stripes adn jeans Let me tell you it was so hot I was dying during taking these pictures! My little one was playing in front of me with his trains and stroller. He is always so good. JEANS AND STRIPES OOTD OOTd stripes and jeans ootd OOTD stripes Love this outfit and it is a definite go to for me on busy days. This kind of look can be achieved with any t-shirt. Which is why it is so great! What do you think? Did you also enter the give away that I am hosting here? Runs until  Wednesday! a Rafflecopter giveaway//widget-prime.rafflecopter.com/launch.js
