I know it has been awhile since my last post. We were in the midst of moving. What a chore!
Now, it’s back to the 90’s! The trend of the moment – Slip Dresses. So big this summer.
I found some cute ones in the magazines. They even accessorize with shoes.
My opinion is notice the model above can pull this off because she is younger.
For most of us over the age of 40, 50, or even 60, there should probably be some adjustments.
I purchased this one at at a small boutique in Houston called Graceanna’s. It’s longer, two layers, so less clingy.
It was only $40. For a trend that is my favorite price. If you don’t wear it often you didn’t waste a lot of money.
They can range a lot higher.
Love the neutral color.
This is one of my favorite places to shop.
It would be fun to accessorize with shoes, purses, and jewelry. For example:
Back in May I had a suggestion of chunky jewelry for summer. What a great idea. Metallic shoes also a plus.
So fun to see what else you can come up with. Send me your ideas. Would love to hear them.
Welcome to 2016
This past year went by really fast. It’s hard to believe a new year has begun.
My trend for January is boots, more specifically “Over The Knee” boots. While boots are always in style for necessity and warmth, this year the “OTK” are really big. This months post is later than usual partly because the weather here in Texas has been warm and it was hard to get into the spirit of boots sooner. But the cooler temperatures have arrived (no snow) yeah.
I bought a pair to see if I would like them and I definitely do! You think of wearing boots with jeans, pants, etc. but, I see a lot of OTK with skirts and dresses like the photo above. While I cannot see myself in shorter skirt styles pairing my boots with this coat-type dress works really well.
(These boots are Bucco from – Rue La La $59)
If you stick with the darker colors, adding a bright color as an accessory is fun, for example this colorful scarf (gifted).
Of course with a new year beginning Pantone, the global color expert, has their color of the year. This year they decided to go with two. They have chosen pastel colors a shade of pink – Rose Quartz and light blue – Serenity. Both were seen on the runways for spring.
Right now these shades seem kind of spring-like but I like that they are taken from natural occurrences of nature for example:

It will definitely be fun to see what styles emerge from this new choice of color.
