TJ Maxx

Chilled-out Cheetah

I kind of forget, until the end of the day, that I had re-made it my mission to feature my Daily Threads. So, I had a friend quick snap these of me so I could keep the promise I made to myself… for now.

I was enjoying a really low-key relaxing day off of work so I wore a brand new (1st time wearing) white tank that I picked up from Ross for $4.99 and my even newer Cheetah print shorts that I got for $10 on clearance at TJ Maxx the other day.

I wore my usual array of bracelets. Today they included: my silver bangle, my silver chain, earth tone beads, Alex & Ani Star of Venus bangle and a jade beaded bracelet. (I forgot to get any closer pics.) I had my claddagh ring on and some dangley earrings (I don’t know how to describe these). I had my silver shamrock on, as usual, and my owl loop necklace.

I completed my look with my leopard print, cat eye sunglasses and my Louis Vuitton Speedy 25. My Speedy is actually one of my newest acquisitions. I bought it second had and had it authenticated; I got a fabulous deal on the price (after some serious negotiating thank you very much.). I also love my “Mint Sorbet” nail polish!

Bueno Finds

Today, I was given the day off, so before Casey got home to take me out for our date, I did a little shopping. I think I’m on a clearance-bargain finding high and I needed another fix.

I found this amazing silver and raw emerald ring for $16 at TJ Maxx!

I took a stroll through their handbags and fell in love with this cream tote. Turns out it’s made by Bueno… this is the third bag by Bueno I’ve purchased recently. Everyone should know about these adorable bags!

Like a kid with a new toy, I had to wear them tonight! I paired my new pieces with one of my finds in Orlando my favorite jean shorts and other jewelry favs.

After our movie, Casey and I went to Target for some things around the house and I picked up this t-shirt. It’s a guy’s small, but once washed and dried, it’ll shrink just enough. Most of my Ts are guys Ts… they shrink just right.

Wonderful Day in the Gayborhood – Ft Lauderdale

This morning, Kacie and I headed down to Ft Lauderdale to visit Dylan and Alleah. We hit the highway and the lovebugs hit the windshield!!

I had never been to Dylan’s house so I was especially excited to visit. His backyard is beautiful! Check it out!

We ordered in from Walton Wings and noshed on some hot wings (and salad!) before we headed off for some random adventure.

Our first stop was Dylan’s studio where he even took some impromptu headshots for me. These are my personal favs… and it hasn’t been retouched yet, so don’t pick on me and my pimple! (It just had to appear on my good side!)

After a little photo fun at the studio, we decided to consume mass quantities of alcohol in some of Wilton Manor’s finest bars. We started at Sidelines, a gay sports bar… I ♥ it!! It’s like heaven!! To keep track of the 2-for-1s, they distribute chips and Dylan and Kacie are such loyal patrons, they had many chips to spend before we even got there! Whose got two thumbs and loves free liquor? This girl! There, after a couple of rounds, decided to have more photo fun!

We stumbled down the sidewalk and did some thrift store shopping at Out of the Closet. There, I spotted from across racks of crap a fringey “flapper” dress… black… amazing condition. I dashed over… It’s new… It’s Express… and it’s… YES!  A Size 4! I nearly ripped down the fitting room curtain in excitement to try it on… I LOVE IT!I can’t wait for an excuse to wear it… and then shake shake shake it! I will, of course, need to post pics soon.

After Out of the Closet (whose profits benefit STD testing centers and Safe Sex Education) we headed to The Naked Grape, a completely adorable wine bar. Champagne, Wine, Cheese & Crackers and good friends, it was perfect.

We split our time between to comfortable couches inside and the (smoking) tables outside. At one point, one of the sexiest gay men I’ve ever seen (one that really makes you think “Damn, I wish I had a penis.”) walked by and Kacie, feeling very uninhibited by now, called after him and insisted he take a picture with us. This sexy piece had the straightest touch of any gay man I have ever met! One arm tight around my boob line and one hand upon my thigh… mostly inner thigh… that he placed and kept there well after the photo had been taken…  I was like “ummm… Are you sure you don’t want to have sex with someone with a vagina? Cause I’m totally down.” … Now I’m lusting after gay men… C’est La Vie.

Over all, it was an absolutely wonderful day in the gayborhood! (where Mr Rogers wears feather boas and bedazzled heels) and I have to specifically thank Kacie, Dylan and Dylans amazing, adorable and generous fella, Anthony for showing us all a wonderful time. Thank you, guys. I love you.
