Monthly Obsession: Tis the Season of Boot Season!

So this is my first time ever writing about a monthly obsession and I can honestly say that I have more than one.  We all that one thing that we are obsessed over and whether we can’t afford it at the present moment or can’t eat it at the present moment, we have a plan to get what we want! Sounds familiar?

As for me, I’ve been more of the “go-getter” type in anything that I want, whether it’s a new eye shadow palette or a new phone case for my phone (I am actually proud of myself because I just upgraded my phone and I haven’t purchased a whole lot of phone cases) This month or shall I say the last couple of months I have been obsessing over a few things.  The first item is a pair of combat leopard and plaid print boots I ordered online at Rainbow Shops.

One thing about me is that I don’t tend to follow the latest trend or style because I create my own trend and style! My taste is rather unique and I like to go outside the box just a little to see if I can pull it off! When I first saw these boots online in my promotions email, I knew right then and there that I had to have these cute combat boots! You can say that I am a big fan because I have two other pair of combat boots at my house.  A pair of pink waterproof converse and some Candies combat boots from Kohl’s Department Stores.  It just started getting a little cold where I’m at in Virginia, so I will have plenty of opportunities to wear these boots.  I was thinking of wearing them with a solid denim collared shirt and mild accessories.

What do you guys think about that combination? And be honest! lol. I don’t bite! LOL I purchase a lot of my plaid button down shirts from Kohl’s since I’ve been working there for the last eight years and the discounts are great!  With my associate discount and other discounts we can stack on top of that I sometimes be racking up! There are other obsessions that I have, but I want to save that for my next blog post which will be a continuation.  I can’t wait to share with you all what I’ve been obsessing over! Until then take care and don’t forget to hit that follow/submit button to keep updated of all my blog posts.

Whatz in Oneika’s Closet!

It’s not about brand, it’s about Style”

This quote is so true. People get so caught up in all these brand name clothing and going broke. When you can take something old and make it look like it cost just as much as that Big name brand that your chasing. I never been caught up and wanting that Tommy Hilfiger, Louis Vuitton or that Chanel bag. Just wasn’t raised like that.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s nothing wrong with these items but don’t go broke trying to keep up with the Jones’s because they are broke. Trust me I would love to get some of these items but I’m all about living for what I have in my pockets! I’m not about trying to impress others with some high end garments, but will impress you with inexpensive pieces with my STYLE.

I will walk into a store and go to that sale and clearance rack in a minute. Just like these checkered black & white high waist pants from Rue21 for $9. I love a awesome deal and can find some big name brand items mentioned before in a Thrift Store with tags on them as well. So brands are great for the right price at your local Thrift Store 😀. This entire outfit is under $50!

Captivating in Kate

Emjay-blue and white dress side view
Every girl should have a timeless piece or two in her closet. Quality over quantity is a great
fashion practice to follow. You’ll find that you’ll love on your clothes more. You’ll also learn to
get more resourceful and creative with the items stocked in your closet.
Kate Spade (gone too soon) is well known for her dresses, shoes, hand bags and accessories that
provide a crisp perfect finish. This fit and flare “holiday” dress is from a collection of Kate’s that
is at least two years old. Even in today’s world of Fashionista, this dress turns heads, for sure.
Who knew stripes could be so stunning? It’s great for a wedding, a dance, or a dinner. But darlin’!–
You can also dress this number down a bit. Paired with a basic nude or black pump, it is perfect worn as
your Sunday’s best.
A fit and flare dress is a flattering piece because it gives the appearance of an hour-glass shape. Women
of all shapes and sizes enjoy the cinched waist as the flared part of the dress drapes over the lower parts of
the body. I hope you enjoy this look.

I’ll Take the ‘Popular Category’ for $200 Alex!

Every year when the Academy Oscars come around, lots of people are trying to figure out which category movies, actresses and actors should be placed in as well as directors and writers.  It’s a very big deal in case you didn’t know especially in the film industry.  Imagine an actor or actress who has worked their butt off for the last couple of years as what they do and not get nominated.  Well let me rephrase that, it’s not all about who doesn’t gets nominated, because in the end, every actor, actress, director and writer are winners! 

 

But let’s talk about the new category that has had some people in anger and talking.  The Oscars decided to add a new category to the list and that is the “most popular picture”  Seriously what do you guys feel about that new category being added?  Do you think that it is fair since they already have “Best picture” category added? There has been a lot of great movies so far this year with Black Panther kicking the numbers straight out the ball park with the gross numbers they have been receiving.  Ryan Coogler definitely deserves an Oscar for this movie!  

According to http://www.vulture.com, here are some of the top good movies so far in 2018:

  1. Black Panther
  2. Paddington 2
  3. The First Purge
  4. Blockers
  5. Isle of Dogs
  6. Annihilation 
  7. Leave No Trace
  8. Love after Love
  9. Sorry to Bother You
  10. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? 

Other movies that appeared on other sites such as ‘Rotten Tomatoes’ and ‘Parade’ had some of the same movie adding “A Quiet Place” “Love Simon” and “The Incredibles 2”

 

So the next Oscar should be very exciting especially with the new category.
