www bloomingdales www.simplysassysstyle.com
Hello Sassy People:
Being a blogger you tend to have the opportunity of attending several amazing events, and most, if not all are usually pretty amazing. But when you get a chance to give back for a special cause it's even more special. As we all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so when I was invited to host a "Pretty in Pink" event at Bloomingdale’s Aventura, along with several other Miami Beauty and Fashion Bloggers/organized by The Fashion Poet, I was super exited!! 
Beena from, Beauty and Everything Else, and I being silly and having a great time!!! #Lovethisgirl!
We all had an amazing time mingling and chatting with each other, listening to super cool jamz and eating tasty bites. But one of the things that was most epic for me, was that I got my first personalized sketch drawn by The Architect Of StyleThis girl is simply amazing!!!!! She captured every detail! I was so blown away by my drawing I had to frame it. #loveit! Lol! 


Thanks Bloomingdale’s for such an awesome event, The Fashion Poet for including me and The Architect Of Style for the super cool drawing!!!! You all rock!!!!!
Have A Happy Healthy, and Remember To Always...
Stay Sassy!

AN EXTENDED DAY OF BEAUTY AT LORD & TAYLOR, MIZNER PARK

Hello Sassy People:

Lord & Taylor really knows how to throw a party, and as my readers know, I try to attend as many of their events as possible. 

Recently, I had the pleasure of being apart of their "Cosmetic Trend Show", hosted by Palm Beach Illustrated Fashion Editor Katherine Lande. While there, I mingled with several amazing friends, and learned about fall makeup trends and beautiful must-haves from Sassy Cosmetic Reps representing amazing brands such as; Estee Lauder, Nars, Clique and many, many more. I also had the pleasure of actually meeting Katherine Lande which was an added bonus.  

To assist with the celebration of the "Evening Of Beauty" all attendees received a super cute Lord & Taylor Tote, plus the $25.00 entrance fee was redeemable toward any cosmetic purchase(s). I decided to redeem mine later, and I am glad I did because a few days after the event, we were invited to participate in the friends and family discount weekend. Almost everything in-store was 25% off, and 10% off cosmetics!

My girl Sahily, from Pretty In Pigment, and I decided to extend our day of beauty and redeem the gift cards while taking advantage of the additional 10% off cosmetics. 

After much thought and tons of questions! Lol! I decided to go with "Rouge In Love" by Lancome lip color, and as an added bonus I also received a gorgeous Gloss Volupte by YvesSaintLaurent. I have not officially worn either product, but when I tried them on, I instantly fell in love! Don't get me wrong the colors are beautiful and I simply love the packaging, but the smooth and creamy textures are making me even more excited to wear them!!!!! 

Thanks Lord and Taylor for hosting another awesome event, and The Buzz Agency for the invite! I really enjoyed myself! For more information about Lord and Taylor click Here. You can also contact them via phone at 561-394-5656.

BEING A NATURAL GIRL

Growing natural hair www.simplysassysstyle.com
Hello Sassy People:

I started perming my hair exactly 30 years ago and never thought I would see the day when I'd be "a natural girl" again! 

I've always had a really nice grade of hair. However, as I got older it started to break off horribly due to all of the ungodly things I would do to it like perming etc. etc. Then one day I looked in the mirror and I didn't have any in the front of my head and only like 1/3 on the sides and in the back. I was speechless! 

For awhile I wore a weave and that only made it worse. Then I said OK, no more weaves or crazy chemicals, I am going to continue the "Gibson Girl Trend", by washing and braiding my own hair and wear wigs. 

Now, I can not lie I love wigs, they are sooo easy and super cute. Buttt....it took a toll on me after wearing them for about 3 years in this Florida heat!

So basically, trying everything except what came natural caused me to finally go natural! Lol! And I absolutely love it!!!!

SIMPLE YET SASSY! A GREAT CASUAL WEEKEND OUTFIT

casual outfit for women www.simplysassysstyle.com
Hello Sassy People:

Per my doctor I am 90% healed from the ankle break! Well doc, 90% of the time I feel as if I am only 50% healed. Ugh! Although I am able to walk again there are those days where a quick limp is all I can manage! lol! With that being said, my weakness for 6" stilettos has come to a halt! So lately it has been my mission to find really cute flats and work them into both my weekend casual and not so casual looks. 

Since taking these pics a few weeks ago, this entire look has become my "GO TO" weekend look! I love it simply because it's super cute, very girly, comfy, and it works well with my new Calvin Klein flats.
Merona Tie Dress - Thrifted, Bracelet - Loehmans (OOB), Necklace- HM, Lucky Brand Earrings - Loehmans (OOB), Calvin Klein Shoes - DSW, Gucci Hobo Bag - Barcelona, Spain.

Although this entire situation has been a hugeee bummer I have grown during this time and learned a few life lessons, some very small and some extremely large. One is that flats aren't that bad!!!! :) xoxoxoxo

BLACK, WHITE AND A RED LIP

Hello Sassy People:

The Red Lip is so CLASSIC. It was years before I learned which red actually looks good with my skin tone. A lot of women won't do this color because it is either to sassy, to bold or they feel that it simply won't work. Well ladies we can agree to disagree! In my opinion all women should have one stick of red! It's such a sexy vibrant color! You can take a simple look and turn it classic in a matter of seconds, and besides we all need to feel sassy every once in awhile!ll :)

On this day I wore a White House, Black Market Dress I purchased while thrifting, and decided to pair it with a vintage red handbag and a red lip called, Milani Color Statement Lipstick, Ruby Valentine. I love this lipstick because its not only really pretty, but it is also a full-coverage application, lightweight, contains vitamins and Paraben free.

Oh and I must give a shout out to Miami Beach Suncare for sending me the super cool shades I am sporting! #love

If you have been wanting a red lip and just couldn't find the right one for you. The  key to the Bold and the Beautiful Red is undertones. The Ruby Valentine is a blue-red that best suits those with cooler undertones and darker skin which works really well for me. For more on red lipstick/undertones click here.

FALL FASHION IN SOUTH FLORIDA

Hello Sassy People:

Living in the sub-tropics you rarely, if at all, see thermal fabrics or multiple layering. Deciding to take that risk may cause an early death! Lol! It is just to hot. 

Fall Fashion Tips www.simplysassysstyle.com
So what is a Sassy South Floridian Fashionista to do?

Although we can't enjoy all the benefits of fall fashion, we can borrow a few trends and incorporate them into our wardrobes by putting our creative juices to use, and focusing on things like, color, fabric and pairing.
I know, I know, what I am wearing today is completely unconventional for autumn/fall but hey once again it's South Florida and we are apart of the exception! Usually, I would try to do something darker in color, but I knew I would be enjoying a full day of the beach and wanted to blend well with the ocean! So I decided to go with one of my favorite transitional pieces, a gorgeous light weight Romeo and Juliet Maxi Dress. It can be worn as great beach wear and also as a super sassy dress.
Romeo and Juliet Maxi Goodwill, Bangles, Hoop Earrings - Annie SezNecklace - Brighton
When thinking of what to wear to be cute and comfy in this wonderful tropical climate, try pairing beautiful light weight and feminine pieces, with your best dark rinse jeans and metal accented shoes or over the knee boots for a daytime look. When heading out for a night on the town try rocking a classic lace or non lace LBD. This will keep you looking effortless and graceful, while still capturing the South Florida fall flavor.

Have A Happy Healthy, and Remember To Always...
Stay Sassy!
