It's Casuale Friday...Let's Groove!

Hey all!

It's a wonderful Friday and I feel great even after I tried to make a small purchase in the 7-11 and my card was declined.  I found out someone in Mexico tried to use my card information to make $700 purchase and then someone in Cali tried to make a $200 purchase on the same day.  The bank was on it, declined both transactions and put a hold on my card because they deemed both to be suspect. 
It's all good but now I am inconvenienced at the moment. 
No online shopping for me right now!!!!

Anyway, here is my outfit of the day.  'Casuale' Friday at work and I am rocking the red jeans!
Jeans, Sweater Vest and Blazer: Thrifted     Shirt: Ashley Stewart    Shoes: K&G   
Statement Necklace & Bracelet: Made by Mom     Earrings: NYC Street Vendor
I have been killin these shoes lately...I LOVE them!  So I apologize if you are sick of seeing them. 
Actually I'm not

Purse: NYC Street Vendor
UGH! I still feel violated, though.  Are you also experiencing something so wide you can't get around it, so low you can't get under it, so high you can't go over it?  You say you are?  Well, this is a chance to dance our way out of our constrictions!
                                                            Groove with me!

That's how my mommy and daddy used to dance their way out of their constrictions...I can dig it!

To all my fellow NEW YORK Giant Fans...Let's Do this!!!
I think I may do a special Superbowl post. We will see.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Thanks for stopping by.
Stay fly and stay tuned!


  1. OMGosh!!! I love this outfit! Btw, it's coincidence that I'm experiencing the same thing! I just left the bank this morning dealing with the same issues. The charges to my account weren't nearly as large as yours but my bank shut them down too. I just got a new card this morning and that all happened over the weekend!

  2. You are the pattern mixing queen!!! Great outfit! Horrible start to the weekend. When my account was compromised like that it was because the cashier at a fast food place made some kind of imprint of my debit card info and went on a spending spree. I hope they get you squared away ASAP!

    With Class & Sass,

  3. omggggggggggg THIS IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!

  4. Love the pants and that necklace!!

    This happened to me a couple of months and my bank was on it too, I am grateful they caught it, put the money back right then and issued me a temporary card. The amounts weren't as large as yours though, but it is a great thing the bank did catch it an stopped it. Stuff like this makes you want to go back to paying with cash ONLY!!!

  17. You look ah-maxing!! I love that you aren't afraid of mixing patterns or colors! I have also had issues where this has happened to me as well in the past, and I think no matter if you shop online or in stores it can happen, but the good thing is the bank pretty much catches it. Enjoy your weekend!
