So here I wanted to be comfortable for an evening of hanging outside with friends. It is fall and the weather will be cooler as night creeps in. I put my white T-shirt, with a white jean jacket (since I don’t abide my the after Labor Day Rule of no white…some rules are meant to be broken!) from Jones New York Outlet for $27 in 2015. I paired them with jeans, my “chucks” or Converse (which were an $80 pair of shoes I got from Urban Outfitters on clearance for $30 a few years ago). My coach purse is from the Coach Outlet as well! Every thing in this photo was on sale, marked down or clearance.

I wanted to show how you how I shopped my closet and made another outfit by removing pieces and adding pieces.

Same pair of jeans and white T-shirt, but I removed the jean jacket and added a black knit sweater and wedged ankle boots. Easy! A casual date night outfit or out with friends and family to dinner. And yes…the Aerosoles shoes were on sale. (Very comfy for those of us with RA and Fibromyalgia).

Confetti Weekend: SURPRISE! HAIR FEST

14317521_10155288438848266_3159400551606929491_n

Imagine my surprise when I showed up to Court Square to get a feel for a group performing to potentially write a blog for them and the first thing I see are the ladies below. This is when I discovered this was a hair show with a theme to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital one of my favorite charities. My mom is retired from St. Jude and I spent many summers there as a child running around in the out patient department. I snapped as many pictures as I could and I got as much information as I could. So hold on to your roots…here we go!

First up to bat, pun intended, was Suicide Squad. A young group of hair students competing in a competition.

The next group of students and young hair stylists were just as unique and creative. They were from Empire School of Beauty School.

 

The crowd was in total awe of the students’ creations from both teams. Empire walked away winners but, really both teams were winners. Anytime you lend your talent to support a charity how can you lose?

Some of the amazing vendors on display with their products and creations:

So, I’m under the tent finishing up my Chicken on a Stick from Runway Grill, and I look up to see more hair models getting some  Parker’s Water Ice.

I say to myself: “Is that? Yes it is honey.” Keith Turks from The Real Hairstylists of Memphis. Immediately I knew I was in for a slay. As I mentioned earlier, I had no idea what I was walking into.

After getting my dance on in Court Square, because Keith Turks and models brought the beats, I decided now would be a good time for Cupcake Cutie. It’s only a few steps away from Court Square. Choose a a cupcake and pick an icing. I chose the lemon cupcake and strawberry icing.

One more vendor all the way from St.Louis, Brittany Raji. I am so glad I met her! @BeautyImpactAccesories on Instagram

My evening here concluded with the group I came to see,

Hothouse Gruv took us back, and way back  with 90’s music. They came to show out with energy and a live wire performance! The dancers gave their all and talent was displayed in each member. It was great to end my evening as I headed to another even with a party on still on my mind.

Last but, definitely not least in any shape form or fashion is Stephanie Brown. She put this amazing show together and announced she will be joining Season 2 of The Real Hair Stylists of Memphis!

Oh my! If you are a Fashionista and you walk into TJMaxx with the intention of going to the HOME Department ONLY…Good Luck with that!

I saw the shoes first by Nine West (39.99) and thought oh these are so cute and would be great for Fall and Winter. The wine color is everywhere this season. I took a chance by walking over to the purses and bags. After much holding up purses to see if it matched I finally found one for 24.99! I am going to love mixing and matching the shoes and purse with different outfits! I can’t wait to share with you!
