Sunday Look: Full Skirt & Bell Sleeve Blouse

It’s Oscar Sunday!  The Diva in me wanted to wear a long gown to church today, LOL…  Just kidding! Not really.  Can you tell I’m looking forward to the Red Carpet Fashions.   Today I fashioned a recycled skirt from two years ago.  The A-Line Full Skirt will never go out of fashion. There are many different ways to wear this skirt.  Best of all it has pockets!  Last time I wore this skirt I styled it with a black long sleeve cotton tee with pearls and ankle boots.  I switched it up this go around.  I paired it with an off-white blouse featuring the trending bell sleeve, V-neck, button loop detail and a tie.

Accessories really weren’t necessary, my blouse is so detailed as I mentioned with the button loops and tie.  The long bell sleeves served as my accessory.

My BAG: Listen, I fell in love with this style bag when I first saw it in white.  I was so drawn to it that I wanted every color  in stock.  I now have four different colors.  Oops! I think I just told on myself.  My husband reads my Blog and this will probably raise his eyebrows 😉 .  I’m pretty sure I’m not alone, how many of you have purchased the same item in different colors?

Style Tip:  Don’t be afraid to recycle the same item of clothing.  You can re-style one piece many different ways!

I can’t wait to hear these words tonight on the Red Carpet “Who are you wearing”

There is BEAUTI in everything, find it…

Sunday Look: Sunday Best – Double Bell Sleeves

Happy Sunday!  Today was a pretty special day (despite the fact that I was fighting allergies).  Our church celebrated Heritage Sunday, we heard a message from Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II.  I was also fortunate enough to get a picture with him as well.  Heritage Sunday called for you to wear your Sunday Best or  Heritage Attire.  I  chose to dress in my “Sunday Best”.

Have you ever purchased an item and asked this question, “when and where will I wear it?   I do that a lot. Well, today that question was answered for me.  This straight black dress is turned into a showstopper by the double bell sleeves.  Without the sleeves it would be just another black dress.  Its all about the details that make fashion, FASHION…

This dress is fabulous without accessories, but when I added the long knotted black and white peal necklace it became HIGH FASHION 😉 .  It’s amazing how one piece of jewelry can change the entire look of an outfit.  I downplayed my earrings in order to keep the necklace the main attraction.  The double bell sleeves and necklace work well together.

When it came to deciding which shoe to pair with this dress I was perplexed.  I must have tried on about six different pair of black shoes.  I narrowed it down to two pair, but the open toe sling backs won over the pointy toe pumps, can you believe it?

My BAG: I chose a bag that was fairly simple, black satin square clutch with a woven detail on the front flap.  I didn’t want my bag to take over!

I can’t get enough of today’s outfit!  The necklace is EVERYTHING!

Sunday Look: Sweetheart Sunday in Red & Pink

It’s Sweet Sunday!  I always refer to the Sunday before Valentines Day as “Sweetheart Sunday”.

I was really excited about today.  It’s almost Valentines Day and I get to wear my favorite color “RED“.  I enjoyed wearing all that RED the entire month of December.  That brings me to today’s outfit choice. I knew I was going to wear some type of RED.  This skirt is one of three that I purchased quite some time ago.  I wore the black and combination black & red skirts during the Christmas Holidays.  Somewhere in the back of my mind I was saving this one for today 😉 .  This ball skirt (with the added tulle underneath) is so feminine AND it has pockets!   Since RED happens to be my favorite color, I have a lot of it in my closet.

I purchased this top not to long ago, it’s the same designer as the skirt.  I had every intention on pairing this particular top with a pink pencil skirt.  But something wonderful happened.  I saw these shoes online on day as I was browsing.  I went to the store and there they were, calling my name and I could not resist.   I immediately thought about paring the red skirt and top together along with these shoes.  It was a style winner.  In addition to the cowl neck the back of this top is so sweet, it has three pearl button closures and a keyhole. (It also has a solid black ruffle at the bottom which you can’t see.)

Style Tip:  When I purchase any top I try to make sure I can wear it with other things.  This top is very versatile. It can be worn tucked or untucked, worn with jeans, slacks or shorts… even belted.

As I thought about accessories, I knew I wanted something other than RED.  I wanted to play up the pink.  I did that with my earrings.  I also added a long necklace with a bit of pinkish bling.  I threw on a rose gold cuff and watch.  I’m so in LOVE! this look is so sweet.  BUT the sweetest, these two-toned RED and PINK heels!

My BAG; as you can see matches my shoes.  I don’t normally pair the exact same bag to my shoes.  But I fell in love with this bag and had to have it.  I have to keep the collection going right?  And since there are NO RULES I matched it up!

Right now, these shoes and bag are 30% off! OH!.. and Happy Valentines Day!

Sunday Look: Super Sunday- Casual

Happy SUPER Sunday!… Today is what most of us have been waiting for even if our team isn’t playing.  That brings me to today’s outfit.  I’m SUPER casual and SUPER comfortable.  Not only was I able to wear this outfit to church but I can easily transition into today’s festivities.  All I have to do is put on a pair of flats 😉 and I’m on my way to being SUPER, SUPER comfortable.

This outfit was SUPER simple to put together.  Basically all I had to do was put on high heels and throw on a necklace.  It’s that simple!  Of course I took it a little further by adding an arm full of bangles, earrings and watch. TOUCHDOWN!!!!

My BAG today was SUPER cute and simple as well.  It’s just a beaded box and I love it!

Since it’s SUPER SUNDAY I thought I’d be playful with my touch down pillow!  Enjoy the game!
