Sueded

24 Apr

Put this outfit together during one of the cooler days. I always try to get the last wear out of my Winter/Colder months clothes before the weather changes. I’ve been holding onto this faux fur piece all Winter and thought this was the picture day to pull it out. The same goes for this suede, tie neck blouse that I stalked until they put it on the clearance rack. I decided to leave the ties hanging instead of making a bow as you normally would with a tie neck blouse. I love how the teal looks with the chocolate browns, tans, and creams. Later for now! God Bless!

Sunday: Nothing like a pop of color when wearing an animal print! I could have easily worn a bright pink, yellow, orange,  or other bright color blouse/top with this cheetah print skirt, but instead I opted for this red, tie neck  sheer blouse. The tie neck gives the look a retro secretary feel but the ankle booties makes it more modern. Thanks for reading! Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Sunday: Yeah I’m wearing white after Labor Day, again! And? I know that’s an old “rule” but like I always say, there’s no rules in fashion! Even though there’s no rules, keep this in mind. When wearing white after Labor Day (during the cooler months), always make sure that the fabric is appropriate. Meaning, you can wear white but just make sure it is a heavier fabric. Don’t wear white linen! It just looks so wrong! A heavier cotton, brocade, poly, twill,wool, denim, etc., will work better. Anyway, I saw this skirt months ago and wanted to buy it but it wasn’t on sale yet. Even though I wanted it, it was that kind of “want” where I was willing to pay full price. Plus I knew it would go on sale soon enough. Fast forward to now, I actually had forgotten about said skirt until I was perusing the clearance racks and came upon it. Not only was it the only one in my size but there was the only black one in my size too. I don’t need to say anything further about it as you see me wearing it and you will see the black one in an upcoming post. Hope you had a great weekend! God Bless!

Fit N Flare Trench

Sunday: What a dreary, rainy, miserable day! I wanted to wear something that was no-fuss and would keep me dry. A good patent leather shoe or boot is always perfect for a rainy/snowy day. You can look stylish and put together all while staying dry. This is one of a few pairs of my go-to wet weather footwear pieces. I love a colored pair of trousers and this maroon/burgundy/ or whatever else they are now calling this color, is the color of the season. I wanted to keep the look basic and classic (besides the booties of course), so I wore this pinstripe tie neck button down shirt. I like how the blue and maroon contrast each other but still work well together. An unexpected pairing. I complain about the rain but it was a perfect day for me to pull out my fit n flare trench coat that I thrifted almost 2 yrs ago. It’s not very heavy and the weather has to be just right in order to wear it without being either too hot or too cold. Actually I kind of forgot that I had it so I was excited to finally wear it for the 1st time. I like the double breast buttons of a classic trench(sorta/kinda) with the flared skirt which isn’t commonly seen in a trench. I don’t know if it’s vintage or not but it comes across as vintage to me mainly because of the cut. Very reminiscent of the 50s/60s cinched waist/flared skirt silhouette. Hair Update:Still working this natural thing. Getting better with maintenance and styling. Been wanting  to color the front. I need a change. Just me getting bored with the same look. I thought that I would never be able to color my hair again (about 7 yrs ago I found out I was highly allergic to hair dye, later, after some research I speculated/assumed it was due to one particular ingredient (I know, I should still have an allergy test done to 100% sure, but anyway, I’ll just stick to the skin test that I will do prior to using the dye for now). So after long internet research of many different brands , I found something that I could use. I also found out that the ingredient that I’m allergic to is mainly found in darker dyes, which I was doing for a time back then. I have been light before and now realize that I didn’t have any reactions then. So I found that Clairol has many products that don’t contain the p-Phenylenediamine (PPD) that I am allergic to (and many many other people too), so I gave one a try. Not the results I expected but love it anyway. Maybe the next time I’ll get it the way I want it. Anyway, hope you had a good weekend! Thanks for reading! God Bless!
