Casual Saturday

Rockin' (faux) leather this Spring is it thing to do. That's what I've read, y'know, in fashion magazines and what have you. Granted, it's meant to be (faux) leather items in spring-like colors. And as you can see in the photos below, I ain't rocking a (faux) leather item in spring-like colors. #wompwomp. But I do enjoy seeing others do the same. I personally think that leather can be worn in the Spring time. Hell, even in the Summer! I mean, hello, leather shorts. It can be done.

As I've mentioned before, I'm participating in a weekly challenge created by Nel of Girls of Plenty. Along with Georgette of Grown & Curvy Woman, Deb of Real Girl Runway, Kim of Curvy CEO and Society of Curves, we are to give our take on the hottest Spring trends this year. It started off with black/white then florals and now leather (This challenge was meant for last week but...yeah. Exactly.) The finale, which is this week, will be emerald. Be on the lookout.

This past Saturday I had the chance to attend Gilt City DC Warehouse Sale at Longview Gallery. I was slotted for 11am-1pm. I didn't get there until 12:30pm. There's nothing much more to say about my lateness. I'm really trying to work on this. No, I am. Believe me. Seriously. Anywho, it was complete mayhem inside. Ladies and fellas going from rack to rack and table to table searching for the best deal they can get. Everything from clothing to comforters, shoes to scarves. You name it, they had it. I was impressed. Though there was a XL rack I didn't find much there. But I did luck up on a beautiful ivory franchi small clutch with pearl detailing (Originally $200+. Got it for $39.99) and a black out men's Nixon watch (Originally $200+. Got it for $39.99). Gilt City provided us with awesome music, snacks and sips from La Marca Prosecco, Whitehaven Wine and New Amsterdam Vodka with Coco Coconut Water. I would love to attend this event again and try to get there on time.
