I can’t believe Thanksgiving came and went so quickly! This year, my sister surprised us and flew in from D.C. We also enjoyed some old photos that my dad brought home from his recent trip to my grandma’s house in Chicago.

For dinner, I wore this vintage-inspired velvet dress from Zara. I thought it worked nicely with this vintage chain purse that used to belong to my mom.

Anyway, I’m back in Miami for the weekend and the sun feels so nice. Not sure how I’m gonna pull myself through these last 3 weeks of the semester but I guess I gotta. And finally, I bought a 50mm lens for my Canon and I’m wondering why I waited so long. I’m thoroughly impressed with its speed!

To all my readers, I hope you had a beautiful Thanksgiving and were able to be appreciative of all that you have. For those of you that don’t celebrate it, consider just taking a moment to recognize what you’re grateful for. It’s very humbling and rewarding.

P.S. There will be a black Friday haul coming soon!

Edit: I have chosen the winner of my American Apparel giveaway! Congrats to the lovely Nnenna of Starcrossed Smile! I’ll email you soon lady :)

You look so classy, this outfit is very well out together. I am also digging the natural hair on you.

Thanks! :) I have a love hate with my natural hair but Miami’s humidity has a hate/hate with my straight hair! Haha.

This is one of my favorite dresses you have worn and it goes perfectly with your mom’s bag! So pretty! I’m glad you enjoyed time with your family on Thanksgiving :) Looking forward to the Black Friday Haul!

Thank you, Jen! I get a very WHBM vibe from it so of course you’d like it! Haha. I know you were ill for your Thanksgiving but I hope yours went well nonetheless. There will be a Cyber Monday haul very soon. My stuff should start coming in on Friday or so.

Thank you Nnenna! :)

I’ll be sending an email to you ASAP. I’ve gotten sick in the middle of finals week so I’m like, trying to get a handle on both those situations. I also don’t want to touch your things with my cold germs floating around, haha. If you’d like, you can send me an email with your address so I can send it out as soon as I’m ready.
