My dear friend Kristi fell madly in love with a great man who found a job in Charleston, SC. Needless to say she no longer lives here in Lexvegas with me ;(. But she did come visit me for dinner saturday and in honor of her...(who we refer to as Pearls...because she has some form of pearls on all the time) I decided to rock my summer version of pearls. Love you and miss your sweet faces Kristi and Christian! Shirt-Limited 50% off. Stella and dot necklace and bracelets , AG white jeans from AJ's Clearance section last season for $50. Hair Ron Helm. Shoes-Dillards $98.
There is always a big debate in my head about maxi dresses. Sometimes the look great...and sometimes the don't. I would say more often than not they are not that flattering on most. They tend to be overwhelming, ill fitted, and lets be honest...they creep up the derriere if you do not have the proper undergarments on. A friend of mine was giving some clothes away and she graciously gave me two of her maxi's. Here is one of them...I will post the other soon. What do you think? It will not hurt my feelings if you do not like it. What is your frustrations with the maxi? (Dress $free, Jewelry Stella and Dot, Shoes White House Black Market)
So just what is the Dandy man? It is a man who puts importance into the details of his appearance or in the smartness of his dress. It can be in fit, style, colors, patterns, and or the combo of them all. Men...I want to know what Dandy is to you?
My friend Brendan invited me to go see a band Jamestown Revival. I had never heard of them, but I am always up for a little adventure. It was in Cincinnati on Tuesday the 17th of June at the 20th Century Theater in Cincinnati, Oh. If you made it, you heard a great band that marry's bluegrass, rock, and country. Similar to Avett Brothers. I was working at my friends store Stuart Mercer's Fine Gentleman's Clothing Store (check it out if you havn't) that day so I needed to dress in a way that I could work and be appropriate, but also go straight from there to the concert. This is what I came up with. Oh, and it was hotter than you know what! I wore a very breezy black shirt with studs from TJMAXX for $19.99. The snake skin jeans are from Old NAVY $19. The shoes are Jessica Simpson bought them on clearance at the end of the season last year at Dillards for $30. Jewelry is a combo of Stella and Dot and Premier. What would you wear to an indoor concert on a hotter that you know what day?
If in doubt...throw on a cowboy boot. Looks great with pants and dresses. Do you like the look? Would you wear them?
I like to frequent the local consignment stores in town because I love a unique treasure. Not to mention I am on a tight budget. I saw this dress on the hanger and made judgements...Kensie... It's a junior brand and I am no junior. Jersey material... Usually not that flattering on me. Black and white stripe...I love. Sequins...I love...so my love over-conquered the jersey material and juniors enough for me enough to try it on. When I tried it on I was pleasantly surprised. It was cute, comfy, and fit really well. This was a good example of maybe missing out on a great little number for the summer had I not tried it on. Effortless, thoughtless, one piece dressing...on a budget. Kensie dress $18.99. Someone's junk was my little treasure!
