Potato Sack

Yes, I do believe they literally took potato sacks to make this dress! It reminded me of the ‘I Love Lucy’ episode where Lucy and Ethel wanted a designer original dress and Ricky and Fred got the ladies dresses made from potato sacks as a joke. Anyway, here I am in a potato sack! Until the next time, God Bless!

I am in love with this piece! I didn’t exactly know what it was while hanging on the rack but I knew it was something that I wanted! I love that it has two different textures, one pretty smooth and the other a bit rough. The rough side is what I preferred but that was the side that had the label designating that it is the “wrong side/inside” of the garment. So guess what, that’s the side I wore it on any way! And the sneakers! What can I say? I know they are not a lot of people’s style but I love them and they are my “personal style”. Anyway, thanks for stopping by! God Bless!

Hey everyone! I know I’ve been missing in action from the blog due to a case of laziness when it comes to booting up the laptop, uploading pics, editing through to find the keepers and then posting. But if you follow me on Instagram, you know I’m still around posting outfit pics. If you don’t already follow me, you can @1ststatestyle on IG. Anyway, I thought these knit shorts were really cute when I came across them. The problem was #1: it’s Winter time, #2: they’re pretty short and #3: I could save them to wear when it’s warmer outside but the problem with that is that they may just cause some sweating in unwanted areas! So, I decided to just do some quick photos of how I would style them and wear them to just lounge around the house when the temps outside are a bit chilly but the house is cozy and warm. They work well for me while I lounge around maybe reading a book, coloring in my adult coloring book, watching tv, sipping tea or just about anything! Well, I got some more pics to post. God Bless!

I love a shoe with ties that wrap up your legs but sometimes they can be a pain when they won’t stay tied, as you can see! Anyway, loving how the subtle tan/brown hues play against the light washed denim. The choker is one of the newest styles of accessories that are out right now. It’s not only a choker, but it incorporates these black laces that I tied into a bow. Some of the others that I’ve seen and actually purchased, wraps around the neck and just hangs loose on each side. I’ll bring it to your attention when I wear it. Until the next time, God Bless!

This dress is so cool and comfy on a hot Summer’s day. I gives me an apron/smock vibe. I love the loose, flow of it! I keep the look crisp and clean looking with the white cropped mock neck top. Just a simple look from head to toe. Until the next time, God Bless!
