Since I've Been Gone...

Wow, I'm out of the swing of things!  I figured I would give you a little recap of what I've been up to since the last post.

I was the winner of the "Wear No Black" challenge hosted by Urban Darling.  I got my Jill Milan clutch and it is beautiful!  Thank you so much Urban Darling.  Not only did I learn that I can do without black for extended amounts of time, but I got a fabulous clutch out of the learning experience.

I got dressed a few times.  Truth be told, I've had clothes on everyday... they just haven't all been this exciting.  I liked the animal-print feeling of the skirt paired with the safari looking belt.  If I'm ever on safari, remind me to grab this outfit!

Boyfriend and I went to Las Vegas for his brother's wedding.  It was a great weekend spent with family and everything that Vegas has to offer.  On our way home we came up the back side of the Sierra Nevada's and then dropped down in to Yosemite.  If you've never had a chance to get there, make plans to visit.  No matter how many times I've been, I can never get over the magnitude of everything in the park.  It was really just a very short drive down the mountain, into the valley and back out again but it was well worth it!

I've really been focusing a lot of time on my Cookie Lee business. In case you've haven't noticed, the majority of the jewelry I wear is by Cookie Lee.  I've been a consultant for three years now.  The first year I started my business took off like wild fire!  Since moving to the foothills, I just haven't put much effort in.  Now, I'm back on it!  You can check out the jewerly at  If you would like to place an order, you can email me at blingandsparkle(at)gmail(dot)com or you can do so on the website.  If place the order by emailing me, mention The Clothed Commuter and you can take advantage of Buy one, get one 1/2 off if you order before September 30.

Conni, one of the hostesses of the evening - Some of the fantastic CAbi clothing - One of the guests and myself modeling
My friend Erin and her mother Conni hosted a CAbi party earlier in the week.  Although I look at the site regularly, I'd never been to a home show.  It was great to see the pieces in person.  My pictures don't do the colors justice and the fabrics felt wonderful.  If you'd like to check out the collection... the pieces are really timeless and well made. If you are in the Nevada or Placer County area, contact Melissa Parrett.  She was great about answering questions and suggesting styles.
And that, my friends, is just a small recap of what I've been up to over the last month!
