Next up.....CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPS!
Game 7 Saturday!

Hellz YEAH!!

Don't talk to me Saturday night, cause well I'll just be thinking hockeyhockeyhockey!

C-A-P-S CAPS CAPS CAPS

**************************************

Moving on, let's talk "Fun Fashion Finds" shall we?!?!?

My fashion is kind of all over the place.
Allow me to explain with adjectives:

Sporty & tomboyish at times * very girly & pink most of the time * never ahead of the trends * not a huge risk taker but enjoy trying new things * walk my own way with trends * sometimes create my own*

Basically NOT the BEFORE or AFTER Devil Wears Prada character,
but pretty much in between.

I love looking at magazines and pretty pictures but I don't BREATHE fashion. I enjoy fashion week but mostly think "WHAT THE HECK IS THAT" on the runways. If you want fun fashion blogs check out A Blonde Ambition, The Bargain Blonde, Pink Lou Lou and of course, my fav the Kentucky Priss.

My girl, Jess, I blame for my NEW obsession with Red Dress Boutique. Ladies, if you haven't perused their gorgeous merchandise, you need to do so STAT! Their dresses are gorgeous, their tops are beautiful and their jewelery I DIE! Now ladies, this is not the CHEAPEST place to buy clothes, but RDB is a very diverse and decently price place to shop IMHO.

Wanna see the loot I procured?!?!? I thought you would never ask :)!

 Yep, I'm finally jumping on the 'pink jeans' bandwagon.

Fell in LOVE with this skirt the moment I saw it.
So fun for spring/summer outings.

Hey, that green looks familiar doesn't it?
I loved the color combo so thought I would try the blouse.

My current pink flats are dunzo!
And as my C-Lo said, these will go with everything!

This dress definitely pushes my 'fashion taste' boundaries but I thought why not try? I need more than just pink in my wardrobe and I really enjoy the design and chill factor this dress emulates.

The back I ADORE!!!
 I know what you're thinking...that's a TON of pink and yes, you would be correct. But,have you checked the name of the bloggette behind the blog?!?!? Now it all makes sense,right?!?!? :)

Anyway, I am super excited for all of my purchases and crossing my fingers everything fits. Last time I ordered from RDB,the dress was too big and I was lazy and didn't return it in time for a refund.
Shame shame Pinky, I know

Lastly, get this, I bought everything yesterday [weds] and received a SHIPMENT email the same day! I AM STOKED beyond belief and will be stalking watching for the mailman aka dreamman for the next few days! Hopefully,I'll have a fun fashion show post in the next few weeks!

Happy Thursday ladies, make it a great one!
