Jan 17th, Three for Thursday

Hello Friends! I’m having a little procedure today on my back*- so I’m not able to show you what I am wearing (besides, hospital gowns are so last year!).

Instead I decided to show my favorite dress worn 10 different ways. Looking back through some old pictures really showed me how versatile this dress is! If you think about it in terms of cost per wear- this dress cost around $150 (I think- I bought it so long ago I honestly can’t remember). If I’ve worn it  10 times- then my cost per wear is only $15. What a bargain!

March 12, 80’s Power Suit- Not!


I’ve shown an 80’s power suit once before, but they are so bad I had to show it again. 

I’m not trying to be mean, but if you’re wearing suits that are ill fitting and with shoulder pads, it’s time to donate those to the Goodwill.

An alternative to the 80’s power suit is a dress with a fitted blazer over it.

If you find the right style for your figure, dresses are very flattering. Plus, it makes for such an easy outfit. No worrying about matching top and bottom- it’s done for you!

My problem with dresses is that I used to think they were only for special occasions (evening events). Not any more!

For example:

This is one of my favorite dresses.  The fabric is soft, warm and incredibly comfortable. Plus, I’m always a fan of stripes and I love the long sleeves.

To make it more work appropriate, I’ve added a grey flannel blazer that ties at the waist (which helps define my shape).  Then, to give the entire outfit a burst of color (and in a nod to spring, which I hope is on it’s way), I’ve added this bright Stella and Dot necklace.

It’s Monday, so that means Monday Mingle, click here to see some other great sites!

I now look professional, put together and stylish. Now, off to work!

This dress can stand on it's own, but paired with the blazer it now looks professional.

Jan 4th, Work It Wednesday

Now that I’m back at work, I need to dress up a bit- so today’s outfit is one of my favorite dresses (which I think is actually a nightgown) made into a skirt.

First, I simply added a black v neck shirt and a necklace. I love the neckline of this shirt, it is very flattering. I think the plain black top works because the skirt has so many details with the ruffles.

In the next version I decided to add a bit more color- so I added this purple sweater over the black shirt, then I  added a gorgeous scarf that ties all the colors together.

The purple sweater and scarf add a burst of color.
Without the scarf- a necklace works well to tie in the black.

For my 3rd look I added a grey flannel blazer to make it look more professional. I like the belt on the blazer because it emphasizes my waist.

To make it more professional, I added the belted blazer.
