This is my Alicia Keys skirt!!! I got it at my favorite consignment store that I mentioned earlier. It's called Celebrity Consignments and from what I'm told, certain celebrities donate some of their clothes and then the proceeds go to local youth programs. I'd been watching this skirt since the first day I walked into the store almost 2 years ago. I just loved it so much....it's gathered at the hem for a bit of ballooning and really fitted in the waist. It's a Vera Wang "Simply Vera" and when I asked the woman at the store who donated it, she looked it up and said it was donated by Alicia Keys. At Christmas time, I got it for half off and it was a STEAL! This is only the second time I've worn it and to be quite honest, as much as I love it, I'm a bit afraid of it. It's ALOT of skirt and I almost feel like I don't know exactly what to wear with it. I'm stuck on black and white. But there I go again with RULES! My favorite looks that I see on others have no rules.....note to self....work on that narrow rules thing.
Yesterday, I made a chili from a recipe that I got from Adiaphane's blog. You absolutely HAVE to try it...it has coco powder and coffee in it. I excluded the beer and the brown sugar because I try to avoid useless carbs....it's how I keep my girlish figure (wink wink)! Don't wait till the weekend. Make this chili TODAY!!! It's AMAZING!
