You Choose the Shoes Week 16


Hello friends,

well last week’s contest proved one thing – you CAN wear too much denim, the votes were overwhelmingly in favor of the wedge heels.  Not that you didn’t like the denim shoes, it was just that they were too much with the maxi denim dress.

I now need to find an appropriate outfit to wear with them because I love them, otherwise, they’ll sit in the closet for another year.


winner of week 15

This week’s contenders are Target verses Rainbow Shops.  If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen the two pairs of sandals that I purchased a few weeks back, 2 pair for $20, definitely a deal that I couldn’t pass up.  I got a pair of flats and these white heels.

The also came in black and cognac which I should have also gotten.  These yellow Mossimo pumps were purchased last year as part of a major shoes haul from Target – remember that one?

You Choose the Shoes

The dress is one of those “I can’t believe someone actually donated this” Goodwill find.  I absolutely love how it fits and look forward to wearing it every summer!

You Choose the Shoes

It has a unique collar which is another reason why I like it so much.  Okay, now take a look at the shoes and then choose which pair goes better with the dress.

Dress for Less on NYE

Hello Friends and Happy Kwanzaa!

I trust you all had an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas and that you received everything you wanted.

Today is the first day of Kwanzaa and the first principle is Umoja or “Unity”.  As you go about your day I ask that you spread a little kindness with a smile or a simple “how do you do”.  This can make someone’s day brighter because we are all in this crazy mixed-up world together!

The last day of Kwanzaa is January 1st and if you have plans of going out for New Year’s Eve you’re probably in need of a new outfit.

As a stylist with the Goodwill 2014 Runway Show I’ve had the opportunity to pull together outfits for the various models. I’ve also pulled some dresses for the show that I think would be great for a New Year’s Eve event.

All of these dresses were under $20.00, most were only $5.00, so if you broke the bank at Christmas you can definitely save money for New Years.

Whether you’ll be dancing and prancing or just sitting and staring at others on the dance floor, you’ll look good doing it in a new dress or gown from Goodwill. Accessories such as new shoes, scarves, jewelry and handbags can also be found at your local Goodwill.

As you can see, several of these dresses and shoes are new with the tags still attached.  There are definitely bargains to be found at Goodwill and you’ll be giving back and helping others in your community not only with your purchases but with your donations as well.

So what do you think, will it be a “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” or “Sex in the City” type of night?  

Have a wonderful time and be safe!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Wearing White After Labor Day

Are you a WALDO?

Do you have a White After Labor Day Outfit?

*

Growing up I used to hear people say that you should never ever wear white after Labor Day. Growing up we didn’t have many clothes so I probably didn’t have enough white outfits to wear the entire summer let alone carry over past Labor Day.

*

Now the older I get the quicker the seasons seem to change and the larger my wardrobe grows. I don’t know about you, but I never get a chance to wear all of my summer outfits in the summer months. Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, but September 21st is the actual date so I will continue to wear white until then and maybe perhaps even into Fall.

Summer Shorts Haul from Goodwill

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

After all the cleaning of the closets I realized that I still didn’t have a decent pair of summer shorts.  I also needed wanted a white denim skirt to wear with a pair of blue and white Polka Dot flats.  Not wanting to pay retail because I can’t wear shorts to work I instead headed to the GW Boutique in Exton.

I hadn’t been to this location in almost a year and it had definitely changed.  They expanded into the vacant shoe store next door to make it larger with a better footprint.

OOTD – The Grass Isn’t Always Greener

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

This is the last full week of April, can you believe that this time next week it will be May 3rd and Memorial Day will be on the calendar?  So many things happened this week, some of them good others not so much but I shall not dwell on the negative.  Life is so unpredictable, one day everything is “Peachy Keen” and then next your world is turned upside down.  I believe that all of us, at one point in our lives has wanted something that someone else had, whether is was as a child or an adult,  as a sibling, a parent or friend,  and then we realize that “the grass isn’t always greener on the other side”.

Has that ever happened to you?

OOTD 4 25 13 009

Last evening, hubby and I attended a”Green Tie Friendraiser at The Chase Center on the Riverfront hosted by The Delaware Financial Literacy Institute.  It was wonderful event for a worthy cause and I will provide more details in a separate post.  During the evening we met some great people and had a chance to unwind and mingle after a long day at work.  I was also presented with a fantastic opportunity which I will reveal later once I get more information.

Kate Young Collection at Target

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

TGIF, this week has been such an emotional roller coaster that I am looking forward to just kicking back, relaxing and reflecting on our many blessings.  I am also looking forward to cleaning out the bottom of my closet and under the beds.  Spring is officially here so now it’s time to put away the winter shoes and boots and bring out the sandals.  I stopped at Target yesterday to pick up a few groceries and of course made a quick detour through the shoe department.  No shoe haul this time but my little eyes did spy several pairs of shoes on clearance that are on my wish list.  I also checked out the the Kate Young Collection, this celebrity stylist’s glam collection includes  jewelry, handbags and shoes ranging in prices  from $15.00 to $90.00.

The only pair that I added to wish list were these yellow cork sandals on sale for $24.99

OOTD – Trees & Target on Tax Day

Hello Friends, I hope you had a great weekend and an enjoyable tax-free Monday!

I woke up this morning thinking it was Sunday.  The weekend came and went with such quickness that I though we should have had one more day free from work, but no such luck!  We did manage to get some yard work done before the heat returns because it is not fun pulling weeds and trimming trees in intense heat.  I love this time of year with all the flora blooming but it reeks havoc on my son and his seasonal allergies.  This was my grandmother’s favorite tree and every Spring she’d look outside and say, “Toni, did you take a picture of that tree” – I do miss her so!

OOTD 4 15 13 010

Mama, here’s a picture of that tree.

These trees are on the side of the house, they bloom then change green in about 2 weeks.
