One Week after Quitting my Job OOTD

I left the corporate world to focus solely on my company and personal endeavors. It’s only been seven days but some pretty amazing things have already happened!

Savor Dallas Garden Party

Tonight I’ll be attending the Savor Dallas Garden party, curtesy of Fun City Stuff DFW. They are calling this event a ‘mega happy hour’ that includes art, food and wine. This is the first of several events that will be put on by Savor Dallas this week.

Fun City Stuff is the go-to source for fun events happening in North Texas. They also run contexts and give reviews of these events via their website. I’ve been given the privilege of blogging my experience at Savor Dallas tonight! I’m so geeked, this is the first time I’ll be guest posting on a popular site for locals. I can’t wait to share the results with you! Aside from blogging, I’m going to vlog my experience for my Youtube Channel so stay tuned!

Meanwhile, I found this beautiful strapless dress that I turned into a skirt for today’s ootd. It was only 1.50 at the thrift store! After refashioning it and paring it with a thrifted top that I already own, I came up with this little number.


This may be my favorite ootd yet! What do you think of this one? Are you gals attending any parties this weekend?

Have courage,

Aug. 28 OOTD: Friday Freedom

It was another tough day at work, juggling two jobs at once but I made it through without too much complaining, lol. I’m very excited about my OOTD today because it included a skirt that I made myself. The skirt used to be attached to a vintage puffy sleeved long dress that may have been work by an old lady in the 90s at some point, lol. It was pretty overwhelming on the eyes but I cut the bottom half off and added elastic to the waistband to refashion it into a flowy skirt. I’m really happy with how it turned out. Brandon helped me put this OOTD together since I couldn’t find my glasses this morning. We paired it with a thrifted Old Navy denim top, a leather belt and my nude shoes from Target. My bag is from Charming Charlie.  What do you think?

I’m on Youtube!

As some of you may know, I’ve been working on new content for a Youtube Channel that I’m launching this Sunday, July 5th (happy birthday to me!). I’ve posted a channel preview to give you guys an idea of what I’ll be making videos on. It’s a lot of work putting videos and keywords and thumbnails together but fun too. I’ve got lots of material and just need to make some time each day to create! Please check out my video and subscribe to my channel !!!

Have courage,
