Double Duty: Yellow, Black and White

Happy Monday Y'all!

So this weekend was a busy weekend.  Saturday was my youngest son's league championship football game and I survived what was the first snow of the DC area.  It wasn't a significant amount but it is still October!  It was brutally cold and wet and it was hard for me to watch them babies freeze on the field.  The team toughed it out and brought home that victory babyyyyy! Insert proud momma dance here ______

OK so on Mondays, the outfit I wear to work is usually pulling its second shift.  Whatever I wear to church on Sunday is usually what I wear to work on Monday.  C'mon only have it on for a couple of hours.  Also if I can be honest, I feel too cute to have to take it off for after just a short amount of time.  That would be such a waste. I just come home take it off and hang it up and it's ready to do double duty.  And I rarely have to iron it again.  The only thing about that is, it is usually more dressy than what my work environment calls for.  My office dress code is a very relaxed business casual with jeans being allowed on Fridays.  So at first, people would look at me with the "where the heck is she going?" look when I come stepping in there with my pumps in the sea of old flat loafers (you know the lifeless, broken in ones that have been worn way passed expiration).  I believe they are used to it now. I have back up though. There are now a couple of us ladies who do not let the relaxed dress code interfere with our divaliciousness!

I understand fishnets are not appropriate for every office.  Please consider your work environment before making the decision to wear them.  Also, these are the small nets...I definitely wouldn't do the large net.

Allow Me to Introduce Myself...

My name is Tavia and I am a fashion-a-holic!  Nahhh…I’m just kidding.  The fashion industry at large is pretty new to me but I do find it intriguing.  Although I feel that I have always been fashionable, I recently decided my look needed a jolt of oomph.  I sought out to get a little inspiration and I found several personal style fashion blogs.  These were every day divas, such as myself, showing their fierce and fab fashions.  Some were high end fashions, some were thrifted.  None the less, they were HOT!  I lurked for a while and then the blog bug bit me…nasty lil thang!

This personal style blog started as a concept of just a fashion journal but quickly evolved into a place where I can be be a little creative and be me.  This will be interesting because I tend to be a private person.  My goal is to keep my readers interested with fresh and appealing content.  I am a curvy woman who shops on a budget and I hope to help someone who is also on a budget and may have trouble balancing that fine line of fashion in the workplace.  I also hope to inspire the reader who needs to find her inner diva when choosing an outfit to wear for a night out with the girls.  Whatever the occasion I hope to inspire you to work Nine to Fly!

Thanks for reading!
