First off I know this post is a little late in the day…. LIFE HAPPENS when you are trying to post a FASHION FRIDAY!!  
So I had a whole other FASHION FRIDAY post raring to go, but in light of the amazing summer weather we are having here in the City of Angeles I had to post a springy summeryish look.  
This was a last minute shoot.  It was pretty out and I love this why not right.  
As you have probably noticed from the photo’s we had a special  guest for this FASHION FRIDAY shoot.  Just before Jason and I were about to take the first photo, for which we literally had a 20 minute window, my friend Mindy asked if I could baby sit her little pup for a couple hours.. and of course I said YES….not realizing that I would have to hold her the whole time due to the copious amounts of traffic speeding down La Brea Blvd.   
The drop went something like this….
Mindy pulls up on the busy boulevard in her super cute convertible Bug…and hands me a pink bag.  
The contents of the pink bag were as follows:
One leash, One extremely chewed chew toy, a couple pieces of mini kibble and one little Pomeranian.
Thus we have Mini..a beautiful addition to this weeks FASHION FRIDAY.  Besides being the cutest thing on the planet, she was a real trooper!!  She never complained.  She just marked her territory a few times and posed.
Alright enough of that!
A little about my outfit.  First off I’ve had these jeans for about three years.  I love a great Bell Bottom.  Snug up top to show off the curves.  I think they are a nice departure for when you don’t feel like fighting with the skinnies. 
This tee is delicious.  I got it at Kiz in Chicago.  Perfect for your higher waist pants and jeans.  I love the tail in the back.  Tails always seen to slim the body and give the appearance of being taller.
These booties may have been one of my all time best purchases.  $19.95, yes you are reading that right. 19 dollars and 95 cents.  You gotta love Forever 21 for that!!!  Super comfortable and they look expensive. Nothing better than that!

This belt and the chain were more finds from my Grandma’s closet…yay!!!

 …..and this luscious Nanette Lepore pocket book was a Christmas gift..LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!

Okay my nails.. I have been getting asked about my nails a lot lately.  I love to experiment with’s the one thing you can go crazy with and if you don’t like it..the polish remover is a step away.

Lately its been layers for me..layer of solid nail that’s a different color and glitter..lots of glitter.  I have vowed to do my own nails for the next month.   That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 

Oh BTW this is what my hair looks like when I don’t fry it with my flat iron.  Big and curly!!  It will show up in future FASHION FRIDAYS from time to time.  Mostly when I get lazy. 🙂
SO there you have it!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Little Mini + bell bottoms…. I “Like”
