Happy Thrift Day!!

I love the last Wednesday of every month, but this Wednesday was extra special. It was over 80 degrees in Charlotte. I got to enjoy the summer weather, wore a sundress, and went thrifting.

Dress: Conway, Sandals: Target
The last Wednesday of every month Value Village a local thrift store in Charlotte has 50% off their merchandise. After work my girlfriend and I headed there with her 4 year old and my 8 year old. Let's just say that was the worst idea, because you know with kids unless it's about them they could careless. In order to stop all the complaining we left sooner than I wanted to leave, but I managed to grab two pieces that I love.

     They don't look like much, but a Diva got plans.

Vain Moment: Once I got home I paraded around in front of my mirror telling myself how good I looked in my blazer  .
     Until the next blog. Miracles & Blessings.

Tales of a Car Accident

Happy Monday!!! I know it's time to start the hustle and bustle of the work week , so hopefully you had a great weekend. My weekend started great and ended with a bang...LITERALLY!!

The Southern Women's Show was in Charlotte this weekend. My sister and I was suppose to attend. I was looking like "EVERYTHING". SN: Everything means Divalicious, Fabulous, Hot, Gorgeous, Fierce, It, Bam, Sada and any other adjective that is complimentary rolled into one, i.e, "Everything."

                                     Dress:Dots, Jacket:Dots, Scarf:Rugged Warehouse
                                        Purse: Avon, Sunnies: Dots, Sandals: Target

Now that I am looking like "EVERYTHING", we take the kids to the park  first. Once playtime is over we start leaving the park, as I attempt to back out, no cars in sight. I  hear a loud "Bang," I hit another car... Damn, Damn, DAMN... in my Florida Evans voice. It was my first car accident, so I was acting like a chicken with her head cut off. However, I am grateful to the Master that everybody was fine, but today I am dealing with all the lawyers calls trying to get there 33 %.  Needless to say we never made it to The Southern Women's Conference, maybe next year.

Vain Moment: In the words of my brother in-law I looked "Pertiful" during the whole ordeal.

                                                   How was your weekend?

Welcome to the Life and Times of Tan O!!

I am Tan which is short for Tanya, and welcome to my loud crazy life. I am a lover of many things, and fashion is on the list. I know that there are a million fashion blogs out there (I read them), but I just wanted to throw my two cents in the collection plate (let the church say "Amen").

 I'm a city Diva (New York City) that is, but I currently live in the country "Charlotte, NC." Feeling out of touch with people to talk about fashion, all things over the top, and extra with on a daily basis I decided to start this blog. I wrote a "Things to Do" list before my next birthday and starting this blog was one of the things, so thank you for coming aboard my new journey. Hopefully, we learn a lot from each other and have a great time in the process.


Sit back, strap yourself in, and enjoy the ride.
