Black & Gold

Big hair don't care!  Well, actually, my hair wasn't THIS puffy when I first got it straightened, but humidity immediately kicked in (as soon as I stepped out the salon) and went to work on my hair lol... But it's still cute I think!

I filled you guys in on everything in my last post, and I'm still off of a high from all the great changes in my life!  Summer has been the jam, and this weekend will be as well!
 I'm headed to Firefly Music Festival, a 3-day music festival in Delaware, featuring loads of bands and artists!  I'm most excited to see The Black Keys, John Legend, Allen Stone, Lupe Fiasco, and Girl Talk, just to name a few!  The festival will also have a vineyard, hot air ballon rides, and an arcade... It's gonna be crazy!  I'm going with a coworker of mine, and we're camping!  Now.  I'm not exactly the "camping type," and I'd obviously choose a hotel over camping (but they were all booked), sooo, this was my only option.  I've been really nervous about the whole non-showering, dirty hippie thing, but I'm bringing TONS of baby wipes, and other toilet trees/hand sanitizing, disinfecting materials, haha!

Hair wise, I'm keeping it NATURAL obvi, but I plan to take loads of pictures, and will keep u guys updated via twitter and instagram (@krisbliss), so make sure you follow me!

On to the outfit, I saw this dress on Zara's site and immediately gasped!  I love it!  I feel like a modern day Tina Turner (although she is timeless) with this leather fringe number!  The top is from F21, as well as the necklace, and the shoes are Rachel Roy.  Another new addition, the gold wrap bracelet, was one I picked up at a local boutique.  My new favorite!

I gotta get back to my check off list for Firefly... I still have a little more shopping to do before the weekend!

This weekend consisted of a lot of food, a lot of laughs, and a lot of fun :D

If you follow me on twitter, you know that I tweeted about how I desperately wanted a leather skirt.  I was concerned because I wanted to rock one before it got too hot outside (but at this rate, who knows if the weather will ever warm up).  I brought it up to my mom and two seconds later she busted out with a leather skirt, the one I happen to be wearing in this post lol.  And to think I knew of every article that is in her closet!  Tsk tsk tsk.
It was extremely windy outside, we've been having some crazy weather on the East Coast.
When I bought this shirt a few months ago, it didn't fit at all.  Now it does. #progress

This is my second attempt at doing a heatless roller-set (I let my hair air dry).  I like how it turned out this time.  I tried to channel Dorothy Dandridge, rather than looking like I had on Jennifer Hudson's wig from Dreamgirls pictured in this post.

As you know, my friend Shawna visited me this weekend so I played host/tour guide and showed her around my city!  She along with the besties all had a good ole time.

We ate.
And chilled.

Like my new purse?  I'm surprised I bought it because I don't like to carry them, but this one was too cute!  It's from Target! 

Then we ate some more...

... And some more!

I should be ashamed of the amount I consumed this weekend, but it felt good at the time!  I'm currently struggling (my body isn't taking it well haha), but hey, things happen.

I'm headed to NYC again this morning for another meeting.  I'll speak on it if anything comes from it (hopefully)!
