A Bus Partying Santa Baby!

*UPDATE* January 6, 2011
I wanted to participate in Bloggers Do It Better Sequin Edition and haven't had a chance to take any pictures wearing more sequin, so I submitted this previous post!  Sparkle Sparkle everyone!


Bloggers Do It Better



Hey there fashion peeps!

I had a pretty decent and eventful weekend.  Alright let me tell you...I have a pretty hip momma and it was her birthday weekend.  How she decided to celebrate her birthday was to get a party bus.  That's right, ma dukes said let's party on a bus.  So this is exactly what we did.  The itineray was to party on the bus and make a few pit stops.  Because we are in the DMV (DC, MD, & VA area) during the winter it is COLD!!!  I mean, the hawk was out Saturday night.  I knew it was going to be cold so I had to come up with a fit that was fashionable, festive yet functional.  Functional being, keeping my buns from freezing off.  You would think being a native NY'er having to walk to school in a foot of snow uphill both ways, I could handle it...NOT!  Here is what I came up with.

  

               

I also used this fit to participate in Bloggers Rock the Colors of Christmas link party

&
  for the For Style Sake's Santa Baby Contest. 
I just took off the denim trousers and put on a skirt and a different pair of shoes. 
If you have a minute I would appreciate if you could stop by and vote :-)


 What's up with the look on my face...smh



The Fit
Black Blazer: K&G
Denim Trousers: Thrifted
Black Skirt: ? (had it forever)
Black Blouse: Burlington
Sequin Tank: Dots
Scarf (worn as a tie): Random Vendor
Booties and Shoes: Go Jane
Red & Gold Earrings: DIY


Here is the Birthday Diva Ms. D aka Ma D aka D Ma (what my boys call her)...isn't she fabulous?!? 

One other pic, I wanted to share...me at the MLK memorial.  This was one of the party bus pit stops.  This is an AWESOME memorial!!  I wish it wasn't so cold so that we could enjoy it more.   


Thanks for reading.
Stay fly and stay tuned!

  17. Well hello there Tavia. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your comments. I must say that you are looking very fierce in this outfit. I love the layering. It just gave me some additional inspiration for my sequined tank top. I love the hair. If I had just been a little bit more patient with my natural curls... Well let me get back to checking out your blog.
