Sunday Look: Draped Neck Cardigan & Faux Leather Skirt

Happy Sunday!  I’m enjoying the cooler weather we are having.  I mention that because last year we really didn’t have many cold days.  I have all of these really cool winter clothing that I haven’t been able to wear in almost two years.  Well today that all changed.

I’ve been hoarding this draped neck cardigan for two years I know.  It’s quite warm and I wasn’t able to wear it before.  I was so excited to do so today.  This cardigan is knit with a half faux leather and knit long sleeve in a dark green.  I had every intention of pairing it with the exact skirt you see here.  I’ve been hoarding this skirt also.  This midi skirt in a green faux leather with front split and front pockets!  The two pieces complement each other well. (I won’t be linking these two since they are two years old and sold out).


If ever an outfit called to be accessorized with boots, it’s this one.  Black leather boots worked well to complete this look.  You know, there is something about a skirt with a front split and boots! 😉 .  I kept the other accessories to earrings and a long necklace only.

My BAG today was a round handbag with fringe and small gold studs.  I thought it worked well with the boots in particular.

Faux Leather Fact: Faux leather is usually made from “Polyurethane” a non-animal product.  It’s actually a form of plastic.  Unlike leather, it can be washed and comes in many different colors. Lastly it’s cheaper than leather (rightfully so) but you can get the same great look for a lower price.

Sunday Look: Maxi Dress and Cape Jacket

Happy Sunday! Well it looks like Mother Nature threw us a curve ball and gave us some cooler weather.  That gave me an opportunity to wear something I may have not worn had it been warmer.

Today’s outfit is a Maxi Dress and Cape Jacket.  The dress has a faux leather top with an attached sheer skirt and built-in underskirt.  It’s also sleeveless, that’s why I added the cape jacket. Guess what? the cape jacket has “POCKETS”!  I could have worn a blazer or cardigan as well.

Like last week, my necklace is the real showstopper to the entire outfit.  I had a blank canvas in the faux leather top.  Just about any necklace would have worked.  But this particular one not only sparkled, but it filled in the space nicely.  Next, I added a wide belt, it was a nice contrast between the faux leather top and sheer skirt.   Additional accessories included two silver bangles, ring, watch and earrings with a little bling as well.  Since it was a little cooler I slipped on fishnet hose and patent leather platform (pointy toe) heels.

My Bag:  I had to keep the bling going…  I did that with a semi round clutch with tons of bling!  Who doesn’t like a little bling or in my case lots of bling?

Thanks Mother Nature for the cooler weather!

Happy Sunday… Can I just tell you how much I adore this dress.  I have to give credit to my husband since he picked it out.  He thinks the color mimics his favorite football team.
I had pictured wearing this dress in my head with these shoes.  This morning when it was time to get dressed it all worked out. This faux leather A-line dress is very flattering on my body type.  I have to mention how soft it is too.  There is something about this color that goes well with my skin tone.  Even though red is my favorite color this Camel color is one of my favorite as well.  I was beginning to wonder if I would get a chance to wear it with this Texas weather.
These shoes were perfect with my faux crocodile bag.
