Ode to Ross

Hair-7 jumbo cornrow "braid-out"
Windblown :)

Rings-Guess c/o Ross/Polish-Revlon "Plummy"/Clutch-gifted

Dress-One Clothing (Ross, super steal!!!)/Shoes-Boutique 9/Bracelet-Style&Co. c/o Ross

Cute outfit...afro leaning to one side. Perfectly coiffed hair, haute wedges...outfit does not materialize quite the way I envisioned it. This is the story of my life! This, along with being a single mom of 2 "tweens", a scientist, and a student. With all of this going on, I still pondered the question, "what am I passionate about?" The obvious answer, my children. Secondly, beating the odds by setting high goals for myself and achieving them. But, what else!?!

The answer came to me while perusing the aisles of Ross Dress for Less...Beauty On A Budget! I like to look good (who doesn't right???) on a budget. At that moment, my vision to create 'brit girl' was born! Admittedly, I struggle with pulling my look together completely (i.e. cute shoes...jacked up hair-do). My hope is that my triumphs (and shortfalls) will help me become more polished and offer inspiration to everyone from the urban/retro/flower girls, like me, to the more sophisticated women who want to mix things up a bit.

Please follow me on this wild ride of self discovery by a girl who's an expatriate at heart!
