A MARGARITA CUPCAKE INSPIRED CINCO DE MAYO LOOK


I came across these adorable margarita turned cupcakes on the Party Blue Prints blogs, complete with the recipe, and thought it would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo tomorrow!

After seeing the cupcakes with the mini straws, I was inspired to find some fun, flirty and affordable dresses based on the colors in it, which would hopefully offer an oh so colorful outfit to help you celebrate the upcoming holiday...or even just sport this summer!

So, whether you sport a festive look or not, May 5th is always a fun day to get together with friends and/or family and enjoy some yummy Mexican food, sip on a margarita, for those of you who are 21 and over, and perhaps indulge in a delicious margarita cupcake for dessert, whether you are 21 and over or not! :)

Oh yes, and I want to send a BIG "Thank You" out to Kathryn aka Jemsmom over at "Take My Breath Away" who just wrote such a sweet and supportive blog about little me and my Fabulous Fashions 4 Sensible Style world!

I was so touched and it makes me happier than you know that I was able to offer some affordable outfit ideas, one of which she took and put together based on one of mine using one of the fun Target dresses I posted and own and she looks FABULOUS! So, go check her out and say, "HI"...she is lovely! :)

Till next time, Happy Cinco de Mayo...enjoy, be safe and have fun!!! :)

  20. First things first, everybody needs a web hosting company.
    When using this kind of service, you enjoy total control and superior performance since it allows you
    to choose an operating system and enables you to install software applications.
    Generally, web site hosting is pretty much affordable however,
    if you are a novice to web designing and development then you can always go for free website hosting such as Angel - Fire and Geocities.
