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 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!
