Yesterday I posted some pictures of styling possibilities for my polka dot sleeveless dress. I got lots of great feedback. Well this am. I found a few more combos to throw together that I would like your opinion on. I was surprised to see that I quite like the black puffy sleeve blouse belted over it. Once I ran out of ideas for that dress I started in on my black sheath so I have also included pics of it styled various ways! Some of the outfits look the same but the footwear is different. A couple of the shots are un-styled because I wanted you to see the dress before it had anything added. I pretty much threw in the kitchen sink so I know some of the outfits look a little "goofy or unfinished" but I wanted to be open minded in the process.
Opinions and suggestions are most gratefully accepted.
I wore this dress and posted it as a WIW to the Puccini Martini Blast. It is a sleeveless polka dot dress that I would like to try to get as many decent combinations from it as possible. I am including lots of pic showing it with many different tops and jackets and footwear. I teamed it also with a couple of scarves and one gun metal pearl necklace which I don't wear much. Please let me know which are successful pairings and which which would be if I changed some aspect. Also if there are some real duds...yeah...let me know that too.
One of the pairs of shoes is a new pair of boutique 9 lace-less peep-toe oxfords and I really think they are cute!
I have been so excited to receive this shipment. I ordered 2 faux leather jackets. One is the red moto jacket ClearlyClaire said I should definitely try. The other is a pretty butterscotch one. I also bought three scarves which are also among the photos ( a green one, a blue print one and a black gingham one) and 3 shirts. One is a leopard print that I hate and is going back. The other two seem to fit well but my eye is not adjusted to the puff sleeve which I realize is probably ok for my sloped shoulders. Here goes! Hope you like most of it!
Just received it from Nordies and it is so comfortable! Look ok? I wanted it to be a little roomy.
Had to include a photo of it buttoned up.
Black striped boatneck
Black and metal necklace
Wore this to lunch with my mom. The weather is on them 60 plus degrees. Hope you like the outfit!
So it was so lovely yesterday and today it is gray, rainy and I feel just blah! I am posting this right before I go saddle up furbaby in his green raincoat to go for a walk. Yep...furbaby hates to get wet so this will undoubtedly be a short walk. In honor of such a gray day, it's back to black and gray with only a spot of color:
levi gray demi-curve straightleg jeans
black Bass laceup knee high boots
black striped jersey scarf from Talbots
black suede rainhat
poppy red raincoat from Eddie Bauer.
Hope it meet with YLF approval. Sorry that the closeup is sans makeup but I so didn't want to do anything other than sunscreen and lip tint. Couldn't even be bothered with putting on eyebrows!
I'm off to help a friend with a sports car get her winter tires switched with her general tires. Her car is too small to carry those tires so I am bringing my jeep with the other tires down to Les Schwab to get them rotated and then bringing the snow tires back to her place for her. Pre YLF I would have worn yoga gear probably but I decided to go ahead and dress properly. What a good influence you all are!
dark wash skinnies
gray BR turtleneck
coral jean jacket
taupe Born shooties
multi floral scarf
Opinions and suggestions appreciated. I am happy to say that the skinnies are only starting to feel a little baggy and this is after 4 or 5 wearings so they are definitely holding up well before needing a spin in the washer. I'll probably also wear this to dinner with family at twinnies house.
Sigh....I like it even better than the navy dot short trench.
Ok....so I changed it from Tiger to leopard! Happy Friday and this is the last work day before a whole week of glorious Spring Break! I'm not going anywhere out of town but will bask in sleeping in late and indulging myself with reading and lunches (and maybe dinner out). Today I am teaming an orphan AT leopard cardi (gifted from my twinnie) with all neutrals except for the red raincoat. Hope it meets with approval. Here are the elements below:
Levin demi-curve black skinnies
Born taupe shooties
BR black vneck tshirt
AT leopard cardi
gray trusty faux leather jacket
leopard scarf from TJMAXX
black suede rainhat
