Fall 2015 Outfit Inspirations

Hi Lovelies, 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
How is it even officially FALL? That just blows my mind. I cannot believe it's almost October. 
I used to hate the cold temps. I hate the feeling of being cold, but the older I get the more I am appreciating the season.

 Ok, lets face it, who am I kidding?! 

I just appreciate all the clothes, layers, cute coats, jackets, warm/ deep colors, boots, heels.... lol! 

I was feeling very FALL inspired today and decided to style nine outfits for you guys.
Here ya go:
#1
#2
#3#4
#5 
#6

Let's play the usual game. If you could have one in your closet right at this moment which one would it be? Let me know in the comments below.

Have a wonderful rest of the week.

Love, 

Ivonne Stacy. 

Check out some things I've been eyeing for Fall myself:

Victorian Mirror Make-over

It's FriYAY!
Don't you just love three day weekends?! I definitely do. 

Now lets talk about this quick makeover. 

I've been on the hunt for a Victorian style mirror since I convinced the hubby to let me use the spare room as a vanity room. 
I was driving to my parents house when I spotted this mirror at a Garage sale.
I slowly did a drive by and went to tell my mom all about it. 
She agreed to come with me and see how much the lady would sell it for.
I am glad I did because she was able to get the lady to lower her price to $40.

I taped up the mirror part with gift wrapping paper I had laying around in the garage.
I went to Home Depot and purchased a matte white spray paint. 
And here she is! 
Doesn't it look great? 
I debated whether I should paint it a glossy white or matte white and I am so happy 
I went with the matte. Looks really nice.
A closer look:
Anyway, let me know what you think down in the comments below. 

I pray you all have a wonderful and safe long weekend.

Love, 

Ivonne Stacy.

BEFORE Shots + LIFE

HELLO HELLO! 

Happy September. Can you believe it's already September? Oh my goodness!

Life has been nothing less than a crazy adventure. 

For the month of July and beginning of August we had the house in shambles. We painted the whole house, put in new floors, installed blinds, doors, new hardware, removal of popcorn...I could keep going and going. I tried my best to document as much as I could, but it was definitely difficult. 

During this whole process we also received some sad news that my husband's dad has stage four lung cancer. So, you can imagine our happiness over finally finding a home, but then the heart break to hear such terrible news. 

That's just life you know? Sometimes it's happy go lucky, sometimes it's complete chaos or sometimes it's both.

Please pray for him, he starts chemo tomorrow. I know it's going to be a difficult journey. 

For now, here are the before shots of the house. Like I promised :).  

These images were the ones posted on the MLS site when the house was put on the market. 
Please bear with me as I am working on one project at a time.  
It's a long process for me. 
I get a vision and I like to make it come to life.
  If you follow me on Snapchat you've seen some sneak peeks. :)
I've been spending lots of time at Homegoods, TJ Maxx and Hobby Lobby. 
 Now that I am looking back at the images myself...WOW. What a transformation. 
It's crazy what paint itself will do. 
I cannot wait to share with you guys. 
I've made it a goal for the month of September to really invest some of my time back to the blog. 
Thank you so much for your patience with me and stay tuned for all the future projects.
I will have a DIY prioject on Friday. Come back and say hello! 

Love, 

Ivonne Stacy.
