You Choose The Shoes | Week 14

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.

How did you do with last week’s selection?  It’s so funny because sometimes I get immediate comments on a particular pair and other times not so much, I guess it all depends on the outfit.

A few of you stepped outside of the box with the white wedges from Urbanog, I guess because of the colorful and sassy skirt, but the winner of last week’s You Choose the Shoes were both pair – yes, ladies and gentlemen it was a tie!!!

it was a tie

 

There’s a first time for everything and I want to thank you all for the vote.

Now on to this week’s contenders, which are both fun and funky, so I’m thinking this may too may end in a tie but we’ll see.

 

You Choose the Shoes

The red ones are a previous purchase from Rugged Wearhouse and the Black and Beige are a recent purchase from The Shoe Dept.

You Choose the Shoes You Choose the Shoes

Okay, now I know you may say, the red because of the belt, but look how great the colors match up in the dress with the black and beige pair.

You Choose the Shoes

 

The dress is from Ross and take a look at the side zippers, they are brass which is also the same metal in the rivets on the shoes.

I chose to wear brass accessories as well, ring and watch are both from Avon and I can’t remember where I got the bracelet.

OOTD – Totally Thrifted

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

I’ve been MIA due to a snafu with GoDaddy for Web Hosting and the transferring of my domain – things just didn’t go well so I’m back!  Today is the end of the work week for me because tomorrow is the HOLIDAY – YAY and we are closed on Friday.

What are your plans for Independence Day?  I haven’t made any yet because of the weather, it has been raining since Sunday.  I hope the sun will make an appearance at least one day this weekend so I can  fire up the grill and lounge poolside.

Tuesday’s outfit was totally thrifted from GW Boutique.

Hello Friends and Happy Throwback Tuesday!

Are old styles back in style or are they just being called by a different name?

Chambray or Denim..is it the same?

OOTD – Week of Winter

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday, hope your day is going well.

Having Tuesday off from work has me a day behind mentally which may not be a bad thing because tomorrow is FRI-YAY!!!!  It was somewhat depressing reading through the blogs last night, seeing all those beautiful and colorful maxi dresses and wishing for warmer days instead of dealing with these cold Winter winds.  This morning we were greeted with snow showers…really Mother Nature – c’mon Spring!

In these pictures I may be smiling but I’m definitely not excited about these outfits, I want to shed the layers!

I had hoped that tomorrow the weather would be warmer but most likely it will be a “50’s Friday”  Oh well, the temps will eventually increase but  until then I will be wearing clothing from the winter wardrobe.

OOTD – Mix It Monday

Hello Friends and Happy Monday, I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.

I had an online weekend…reading and commenting on Blogs…updating status’…tweeting….Instagraming…Sverving…and…creating a Facebook Campaign, “Bloggers4JCPenney“. There were several bloggers who liked the concept and submitted their posts, I hope you’ll check it out and do the same.

Saturday, I received my first Influenster VOXBOX, and will be posting a review later this week. Sunday, I went to church, wore green and cooked CornBeef, Cabbage and Potatoes for St. Patty’s Day. Tomorrow #1 son has an interview at Bank of America, he and I will be meeting his DVR job coach at 1:00.  The job market is tough made even more so when you have a disability so please say a little prayer for him.

We were all hoping for another warm weekend but it seems like ‘ole Man Winter is back for one last hurrah! Wednesday is officially the first day of Spring so I’m mixing in a little bright colors with today’s all black outfit.

Are you planning a special “1st Day of Spring” outfit or will you wait until it gets warmer?

OOTD – Zebra Stripes and Tiger Orange

 Hello Friends and Happy March Eve!

Can you believe today is the last day of February?  I am taking a PTO day off from work and will be attending an event later at The Money School of Delaware.  Yesterday started out wet and rainy so I just wore black slacks, a zebra print top and flats then added an orange belt to break up the black and white.  It wasn’t fashionable just comfy Corporate casual – what do you think?

OOTD 2 27 13 001

The orange purse was purchased from Charmingly Linda’s Consignment Shop and I tied a multi-color scarf around the handles.

OOTD 2 27 13 002

I was going to wear the single bracelet that I made in my DYI post (here), but decided to add a few wooden bangles to the zebra print ones that I had in my jewelry box

I used orange nail polish to cover a silver ring – another DYI

OOTD – Casual Friday

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

To all my friends in the New England territory I hope you are ready for the Nor’easter and that you’ll stay safe indoors this weekend.  I’m sure there will be several changes and cancellations of events for New York’s Fashion Week activities.  The parade in New Rochelle that was scheduled Saturday to celebrate Ray Rice and The Ravens’ Super Bowl win was postponed until March 2nd.

We are getting rain with a chance of flurries beginning around midnight with little to no accumulation   I don’t mind snowstorms that occur on the weekends late a night because we are safe indoors and not on the road with the crazies.

My son wasn’t too happy taking the pics this morning which is puzzling because I was the one standing out in the rain!

 

I was playing around with the photo editing with PhotoScape which I like better than PicMonkey and Pixl.

OOTD – Boho Saturday

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday, I hope you are having a pleasant day.

I was up early this morning after a late night of house cleaning but it felt good to wake up without chores and the ability to have a leisurely breakfast with my men.  I do however, need to get into my closet to remove the avalanche of clothes currently on the floor.  Today’s outfit is a pair of jeans that were altered to give it a Boho look, which was a DIY project that was posted here in March.

Hello friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!  You know the days when you put on your clothes and something just doesn’t fit right, or in my case fits too tightly, well that was how my morning started.  As you know on Sunday nights I prepare my outfits for the week but today it was a “pull from the closet” morning.  I put on and then changed 3 skirts, 1 pair of pants, 1 pair of capris and 2 tops because none of them fit right…all too tight!! Not enough “labor” over the holiday, too many Michelobs and Seagrams so now it’s back to the elliptical with a vengeance and summer indulgences are a distant memory!!

After all those changes this is what I ended up wearing, an outfit that is color blocked with my Sorority colors Royal Blue and Gold, (ΣΓΡ ~ Sigma Gamma Rho), and hubby’s Fraternity colors Purple and Gold, (ΩΨΦ ~ Omega Psi Phi).

Top – Goodwill// Skirt – Old Navy// Belt – Rainbow Shops// Wedges – Marshalls

Bangles (separated ) by a large bracelet – Rainbow Shops// White Stone Ring – Avon // Earrings – Samsbeauty.com

I think I hid those extra pounds nicely!!
