Sunday Social: Silver Metallic Vest






Today marks the last Sunday of 2015… I hope everyone had a great Christmas and spent time with family and friends.
Well, you know me, I’ve been waiting for a cool day after having a record warm holiday. The star of today’s outfit is this “Faux Fur Silver Metallic Vest”, I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. Lucky for me it was on a special “One Day Sale”, my kind of purchase. This vest is so SOFT… (I wish you could feel it). Look how it jazzed up this simple BLACK long sleeve dress. I’m looking forward to wearing it again with a turtle neck and skinny leg jeans. It will also look good with a leather skirt. Although it looked just as good without a belt I added a belt to keep it from looking so boxy (gives me a waist). Let’s talk about this necklace, NO it’s not new, but it’s like I purchased it specifically for this look. Don’t you just love when an outfit comes together!
Bring in 2016 safely… Happy New Year… Dress to impress 🙂  …

Sunday Social: Holiday Red









Christmas is here… This is truly my favorite time of year.  Since this is the last Sunday before Christmas I thought it was more than appropriate to wear my Holiday Red.   I’ve been looking forward to dressing for the holiday.
My husband went a bit overboard with the photos today.   He loves me in red 😉  Red happens to be my favorite color.  This suit is perfect for “layered pearl strands”  in the words of Coco Chanel “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls”… it just adds a beautiful touch.  Notice how I threw in some green (purse) adding to that holiday feel.
I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Safe Holiday.

Weekend Inspiration: Plaid





Happy Saturday… Its a beautiful Christmas Holiday Weekend.  I rarely post my Saturday outfits.  Feeling pretty good today about this PLAID DRESS look with colorful tights.  It’s kind of “cute”  🙂 so I thought I would share.  PLAID is something I don’t wear often, its a look that I love on other people.  I added a belt to cinch a waistline.   The flat boots makes it comfortable and casual.  I threw on the hat at the last minute and I liked it… 😉

Sunday Social: All Jeweled Up










Happy Sunday…  Another uplifting church service ” Seven Saying of Christmas”.

The weather always impacts what I wear on Sundays or any other day.  I’m a bit of a “hot box” and prefer cooler weather.  Sometime I feel a little awkward  being sleeveless (especially this time of year) going to church.   Today I’m all JEWELED up (from my neck to shoes) I chose to wear a cardigan with my jewel neck dress.  Ironically the two look so much alike you would think its a two piece.  “IT’S NOT” 🙂   My shoes are adorned with jeweled detail as well.  I even wore hose again today, could I be coming a fan of pantyhose?  Don’t think so… 😉

Not much jewelry was needed since this dress has a built-in jeweled neckline.  I had some similar earrings that paired well.  I added my jeweled watch and some stretchy bangles.  Threw in a bag with a little fringe for some “whimsy” and my outfit is complete.

The Holidays are upon us, remember to spread some Old Fashion Holiday CheerMerry Christmas!

Sunday Social: Flawless Flair







Happy first Sunday of December. The Holiday Season is here…  What a great sermon today at church.  We had a praise and worship good time…  It looks like the cooler cold weather has left us for now.  Last week was sweater weather and today not so much 🙁 .  I chose this navy sheath dress with cutouts exposing the lining underneath.  Don’t you just love my      “Cinderella Shoes” ?  I’ve had my eyes on them for a while.  Its always good to wait for a sale 🙂 .  Hey, I even wore pantyhose today and I despise pantyhose LOL.  Wearing them added a more polished look.  Might as well go for it all.  I chose a gold colored pearl and earrings.  Pulled it all together with my bow detailed bag.
