Black&White

Blk&Wht6

As a New Yorker, gravitating towards a black and white outfit comes so natural to me. This time, I thought I would add a bit of flair with a pair of fabulous pumps with feather appliques. I got lucky walking into a J.Crew store when I found these shoes. They were retailed for about $300 but I walked out of the store with them paying under $100! I’m a big bargain

I really like the color combination with the green and pink intermixed together. I also love the silluette of the top. It’s flattering and I’ve love peplum style tops. This versatile top allows

“How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents” came to me when I was a young woman eager to get my hands on any book written by Latinas. At this time, I was reading the works of Sandra Cisneros, Isabel Allende, Esmeralda Santiago, Cristina García, and
