Catastrophic Wintry Mix in Atlanta

Hey Loves,
The most significant ice and snow storm in 20 years is currently taking over the south, freezing temperatures, snow, rain, ice and sleet in a catastrophic wintry mix . In Atlanta at the moment there are over 200,000 people experiencing power outages and semi trapped in their homes. The supermarket and convenience store shelves are empty, schools are closed and the roadways are empty. Everywhere is covered in snow and ice, the brave hearts whom venture out are just rather unsafe because though Atlanta is somewhat prepared with loaner salt trucks and snow mobiles from other States it’s just not enough for Atlanta!!!! After the madness and name blame and pointing fingers during and after the last snow storm the mayor has guarded himself of and from all the political blaming, by declaring it a state of emergency.

Being a winter baby from the north my vehicle is equipped to handle winter weather I love snow and winter . I love to dress up and go out in the snow…too bad I would be the only one outside as it’s like ghost town.

This nature girl grabbed her winter wares and headed out doors for a walk to appreciate the beauty of nature before it’s disturbed .

20140212-190647.jpg I am such a lover of navy and grey, contrasted with the snow it’s such a beauty, I could walk for hours however, I have more writing and work to do, so while others are off because they are snowed in, it will be most productive for me and my home based jewelry business where you can purchase beautiful fashion jewelry all year 24 hours a day.

love you all….

Peplum flares

Hey Lovely Peeps,
Happy December 8th….. This week I missed some of my god children’s birthdays and I can hardly wait to celebrate with them over the holidays. With that in mind lets talk about peplum flares an iconic fashion repeater. The peplum design entered the fashion world back in the 1940’s and has been in and out periodically since then. It’s hard to repeat the same exact pieces of the peplum design however, because with each re-entry in the fashion world it’s design changes. It has gone from the long skirted ruffle to the barely there skirted ruffle or its current trend just a pleated idea of a ruffle on almost every type of clothing: pants, skirts, dresses, shorts, blouses, blazers, coats…. The fashion trends for 2013 are still entertaining the peplum design however the resort lines showcases the peplum designs as being a little longer, embellished and trimmed with other fabrics. The peplum flares as a fashionable designer piece always as it accentuates almost every woman, the mirage of a voluptuous body.
