More H&M Please!?!

All my wishing and praying has finally paid off!! 

is coming to Nashville, TN. 
According to Nashville's News Channel and a Metro Codes and Building Safety Department building permit. I'm sure many of you have heard of, shopped or drooled over their merchandise but, for those of you who have not H&M is a Swedish-based retail establishment featuring high fashion clothing, shoes and accessories but at pocket friendly prices. The store will find its home in Opry Mills Mall along with other fashion forward retailers such as Forever21, Aldo, BCBG Maxazria, Micheal Kors and many more. H&M is said to open in June or July of this year and I, for one, cannot wait. Check out these H&M pieces:

OOTN: Impromptu Wedding Reception

I was invited to attend a wedding reception with a friend last night. It was last minute so I had to throw something together and I think I did a pretty good job. I made the dress a couple weeks ago and my friend had asked to see it awhile ago so it was fitting that I wear it. The reception was very well done and had a fantastic view of the downtown Nashville. I actually had a blast and was glad I accepted the invite.... Enough of my rambling here is the ensemble. Let me know what you think!

OOTD: Ballet Mom N Floral

Yesterday was a very important day for my family! My eldest daughter participated in her third ballet recital and she did her mother proud! The endless hours of driving her to and fro practice is really paying off. I can't wait to see her in the upcoming Spring recital... So, always taking an advantage of a time to dress up I put this lil' ensemble together. Hope you enjoy!

2012 End w/ Shoe Haul

Here is my "End of 2012" shoe haul. I bought these throughout the month of December when there were so many sales going on. So, I got a lil' carried away but at such great prices it's a win-win. I've been wanting to add more color to my shoe collection and these beauties did just that. Of course I'm almost reaching the 6 foot mark in some of them but who cares? It's Shoes!!

Here is the line up;

Tatum-77 |
(Was totally stoked to find these after missing them a day late and a dollar short on for a fraction of their cost)

Tatum-01 |

Ann |

Mada |

And certainly last but not least, my favorite pair of all:

Monday, January 7, 2013 Window Shopping

I am constantly on the hunt for new pieces to add to my collection and when I saw the Asos Curve Peplum Plate Detail Waist Belt I knew that it must be mine UNTIL  I clicked on the size tab and my size was unavailable. Nooooooo! Hopefully, I'll be able to get away with the next size being that I'm going back to eating healthy and I may (No, I will!) shed some inches off my waist in time to wear it. Wish me luck with that one!

Another great find is the Glitter Melt Melting Tights by Urb Clothing 
Unfortunately, I wont be owning these beauts any time soon because they do not come in a size worthy of holding all this Voluptuousness (tear, tear, sniff)....

This concludes my window shopping........For now!

OOTD Coco Latte

I recently purchased the Colorblocked Skinny Pant from Forever21+ for a steal at $6.99 (and I'm all about finding things for dirt cheap). Of course I got them in Red and black as well. So, for my Saturday, I paired them with my leather jacket for an edgy look and the sheer top added a dash of feminine. To complete this look I paired my black, hidden platform, faux-suede bootie and that sealed the deal. Hope you enjoy!

Let me know what you think of this look!!!

Christmas Portraits

Wanted to share my families most recent family portraits. The matching holiday dresses that I made for my daughters are not a Dominique original. They are inspired by the Color Blocked Bodice Tutorial from Liz of Simple Simon & Company I looooovve everything that these gals make. Like the The Aubrey Cape which I will DEFINITELY be making for my girls next.

The Beginning

Hello! Is there anyone out there? Well whether there is or isn't I started this blog. Why do you ask? The foremost reason that I started this blog is because I am constantly inspired by other young ladies I have stumbled across who exude confidence and style. I have always wondered if I, myself had what it takes and I finally said "Oh, what the heck!" and gave it a shot after hearing family and friends tell me over and over again that I should. So, here I am! I have so many interest from fashion (of course), make-up, hair, interior designing, crafting, to auto detailing. So, you're in-store for quite the show. That will be all for now, see ya on my next post........
