My Birthday Suit

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

No, I didn’t wear my birthday suit on my 55th birthday which was September 20th, but I did want to show you what I did wear during my birthday week. 

This black and white stripped dress with a bit of blue is very flattering one of which I think was purchased at Ross Dress for Less.  I chose to wear with my sandals from Sears, remember when I posted these on Instagram?

On Wednesday I attended a Networking Event at the Chase Center on the Riverfront and wore this black and beige dress from Avon.  I had a great time posing with the cutouts of the various candidates.  Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and of course our current Vice President Joe Biden.

The beige pumps are Chinese Laundry purchased from DSW and check out the beige purse on the ground – it was thrifted new from Goodwill!

On Thursday, I wore this black and white maxi skirt – do you see a pattern here – yes, I love the classic black and white combo.  Thursday was also the night that we put together the Swag Bags for KalediscopeDE and I wasn’t the only one who wore a black and white skirt.

It was definitely a great birthday week and I am looking for a wonderful year.  Now I can let you in on my secret which I posted about on a Facebook Livestream on Friday.  I have been invited to collaborate with Chadwick’s of Boston and Metrostyle so stay tuned for the next few outfits which will feature clothing and accessories from both of these fantastic companies.

In case you missed Social Media Sunday with the Delaware Blogger broadcast on Sunday, here is the link as it was a great segment with my guest, Nikki Valentine who is a fashion designer and stylist.


Obviously sleeveless was the call of the week but now it’s sweater weather.  Have you transitioned your wardrobe yet?

    Happy birthday, Antoinette!!
    Black & white is such a classic combination!
    I’m in love with those dresses that have the panels on the sides!!

    1. DelBlogger

      Yes Jodie, the side panels always give an illusion of a smaller waist!
