Fringe Everywhere


Processed with Moldiv

Fringe seems to be everywhere! It’s a huge trend right now. You can find it on everything. Years ago when I saw fringe it was mostly on vests and boots that related to western wear. NOT anymore. You now see classy stylish items with fringe on shoes, clothes, jewelry and purses.  I’m fascinated with them all.

I fell in LOVE with this shoe when I first laid eyes on them at Zara.  I didn’t purchase them.  I went back a week later and my size was gone 🙁  I inquired if I could order online, surprisingly they said NO.  I wanted this shoe, I went online anyway to and what did I see “YES” there they were…  By now you have guessed from the photo I got them.  Sadly I haven’t worn them yet, still trying to figure out what outfit to pair them with… can’t wait to wear them.  aren’t they beautiful.
Shoe: Zara
The bags are by Steve Madden.   I couldn’t decide which on to get so I got them both, why not…  Stylish bags no matter the color.
Bags: Dillard’s
The Necklace is from Charlotte Russe a Mall find for a very little price.  Love how it hangs around the neck and falls in all the right places.
Necklace: Charlotte Russe



Sunday Social: Tie Dye Oh My








Squiggle Tie Dye:  I’m not use to wearing any kind of tie dye this is different for sure. This I.N.C dress is from Macys.   The top half of the dress gives off that wrap dress feel, I like the look of a flattering fit.  I doubt you can get this same dress but you can shop similar looks here.

The cat eye sun glasses are from Forever 21.  Shoes are Gianni Bini purchased from Dillard’s, notice the flower detail 🙂   I’m pleased with my Sunday look.  When was the last time you rocked TIE DYE?

Sunday Social: Blue Maxi






It’s been a week since my last Blog Post. SO much has been happening. Now about this no effort outfit or my maxi dress I should say. For starters it doesn’t drag the ground, I think that’s what I like the most and you can dress it up or down.  This dress was very inexpensive so inexpensive I’m almost too embarrassed to say so I won’t.  (You can purchase maxi dresses just about anywhere.)  My shoes are Vince Camuto, you already know they were on sale.  I felt they paired well with the medallion in the center of the dress.  My bag was another bargain, I have it in two different colors.  I think this whole outfit came together nicely and for not very much money.  Happy Sunday xo……

Sunday Social: Lime Green Wrap Dress

Processed with Moldiv

Another great Sunday…  I usually plan what I’m going to wear on Sunday mornings to church the night before.  I didn’t get a chance to do that this week, I just pulled something out of my closet and it worked.  I wore this lime green wrap dress that I purchased many years ago and it’s still in style. I can’t remember where I purchased it from but you can purchase similar wrap dresses here. My Jessica Simpson shoes are a NEW purchase I picked up at Dillard’s on an additional 30% off sale.  My Giannini safari print bag was given to me by a friend. Happy Sunday 🙂

Summertime Styling





Summer, summer, summertime.  This look has been one of my favorite summer looks for a few years now.  This cotton knit dress with drawstrings allows this dress to go from maxi to min with ruching in all the right places.  This dress is from New York & Company purchased years ago.  You can shop similar styles here and here.

The shoes adds a pop of color to the entire outfit.  Oh and don’t forget to rock your White Bag…    Shop similar White Bags here and here…  NO RULES…

Sunday Social: Orange Baby Doll Dress





Hope everyone had a great 4th of July celebration. I survived. Today’s outfit is another favorite of mine. I haven’t worn it for a couple of years now. After seeing it on I wonder why I waited so long to wear it again. This orange Baby Doll dress is by Cremieux, my favorite brand for dresses. The shoes are Dolce Vita from Nordstrom. Lastly, my favorite sunglasses by Marc Jacobs. This Post has quite a few favorites. It’s all about the BEAUTI … make it fun.

God Bless the USA: July 4th Attire








Happy 4th of July to all.   Let the Festivities begin… It’s all about the RED WHITE & BLUE…This was my attire for the days leading up to July 4th weekend. This light weight 100% cotton shirt dress was purchased at TJ Maxx for less than $20.  Remember the scarves I told you about back in May that  I found for a whopping $1.00 each, well… They are perfect for this time of year. I will use them again and again. As you can see any bag will do.

My second look is more casual.  Boyfriend jeans and white top. Couldn’t forget the red shoes… Again, I was able to sport one of my $1.00 scarves to complete the look. Just a few pieces is all it take.

Looking forward to the 4th for some good food, family and FIREWORKS!!!

Happy 4th and be safe…
