Sunday Look: Floral Holiday

Happy Sunday!  Here we go, its officially HOLIDAY TIME…  We have been busy trying to get the inside and outside all decked out for the holidays.  The only thing missing is the COOLER weather.  How are your decorating plans going?
Last December I opted to wear RED each Sunday to church.  I really didn’t make that commitment this year but somehow I started out in red again.  Today’s outfit featuring this all over floral maxi with a self-tie halter neck and elastic off-the-shoulder. This elastic is formed so you can wear it two ways.  If you prefer to wear it further up-on the shoulders you can (like in the feature photo at top).  I truly love the off-the-shoulder look.  I’ve said it many times, “a woman’s shoulders is the most beautiful feature on her body”.

When you have a self-tie halter neck there is no need for a necklace.  This girl is never without her earrings. I wore a pair with a sequence look detail.  You know me, I must always have a bangle or three LOL 😉 .  Today I had six!  Since I’m not very tall, every MAXI is way too long.  I always have to wear really high heel shoes so it doesn’t drag the ground.  Today I wore a black patent leather platform sling back with a 5 inch heel.  I bet you’re saying, “5 inches”.  Here’s a little secret, platforms can reduce the heel height by 2 inches sometimes.  So it feels like I was really wearing 3 inch heels 😉 .

What’s the perfect bag to carry when wearing a MAXI of this type?  A magazine clutch is what, nothing went better!  It’s very unexpected wouldn’t you say?

Sunday Look: Roses are Blue…Baby Doll Dress

Happy Sunday!  What a difference it makes when you can get a full day of rest.  Yesterday I did absolutely nothing (except decorate my dining room table for Thanksgiving). Other than that we had a free weekend, the grand girls were sports free.  I should be well rested.  Late last night I decided to try on outfits for today.  Well, this morning I changed my mind 🙂 .  Luckily for me all I did was grab and go!  Which leads me to today’s outfit.

 

Roses are Blue is what I’m calling this dress.  I have to admit I fell in Love with this dress right away.  Wait until you see where I purchased it from down below.  All I have to say is “you make the clothes, the clothes don’t make you”.
The look of vintage in the mesh (I told you its trending)™. This mesh dress makes for a sultry look, while the embroidered flowers add sweet, feminine detail. The thin, mesh material and delicate flowers come together for a one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted look.  This dress turned heads LOL… It would be perfect for your next dinner party or night out.

I kept the accessories really simple. Notice, no necklace, really didn’t need one at all. Just the right amount of skin peeks through the mesh.  Black earrings, sparkly bracelet and ring did the rest.  The dress can easily stand for itself.  I chose an ombre patent leather shoe in blue and black.  I heard someone say the other day that ombre is out ( I think they were talking about hair though).  Anyway, I beg to differ.  I like it and I wore it 😉 .

My BAG today was fairly simple.  I chose a long blue clutch that felt so right for this outfit.  I did try three others but this one was perfect.

Like I said before, you make the clothes the clothes don’t make you!  I wear what I like and you should too!  Don’t get me wrong, I love a designer piece. But everything doesn’t have to be $$$ for you to look good or feel good.
