Back to Basics – WIWW

I have decided to get back to the foundation of my blog DeDivahDeals ~ Fashion and Fun after Fifty and will be posting more outfit’s of the day (#OOTD)  These posts won’t be long in commentary so SEO will be low. 

 

Most of the outfits featured will probably be ones that you have seen before with a little twist.  However, since I have cut back on shopping and Goodwill thrifting I will only be featuring closet staples.

 

Black and Polka Dots OOTD 3

 

As women we all have preconceived notions when it comes to what’s a good fit for our body type.  For example, I always felt uncomfortable about purchasing “body con” type skirts.   But I fell in love with this mint green and polka dot skirt from The Rainbow Shops and took a chance on buying it. 

Had I known that it didn’t look as bad on me as I had thought, I would have purchased another one in fuchsia.  Unfortunately, I had waited too late in the season so when I finally went back there weren’t any left in my size.

The black peplum top was purchased from JC Penney when they had a store in the Exton Square Mall.  Since they are no longer there it gives me yet another reason to stay out of the mall!  #bloggers4jcpenney

This gorgeous two-tone purse is from Avon (Mark) and I love the mint accent on the side which makes it a perfect accent for the outfit.

The patent leather slides are Jessica Simpson brand from Marshalls, also purchased several years ago.  The ring is Avon and the multi-color rhinestone bracelet with hints of mint was probably picked up from Burlington Coat Factory.  

Believe it or not, the statement necklace is a flea market find that I colored with nail polish!  

I love a good jewelry DIY especially when it involves stones and paint or in this case polish.

www.rosewholesale.com

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

Thank you for voting and for all of your comments in last week’s You Choose The Shoes contest.  I hope you are having as much fun as I am with this mid-week blog feature.  There were many comments and suggestions but the overwhelming majority chose the UrbanOg sandals.

This week’s contenders includes a recently purchased pair of sandals from Payless versus the Paula Abdul Forever collection from Avon.

You Choose the Shoes Week 11

The fuchsia sandals are by far my favorite pair of the season, I am so glad that I decided to stop in at Payless during a recent sale at the Exton Square Mall.  Not that I don’t love these black and white sandals from Avon because they are great to wear with different outfits and are my go-to shoes for church.

You Choose the Shoes Week 11

If I am not mistaken, this faux wrap dress was purchased at JC Penney and the colors work well with both pair of sandals, what do you think?  I am very upset that JC Penney was shut down at the Exton Square Mall as they had some great clearance bargains.

It was such a bright sunny Sunday that it was hard to keep from squinting, so concentrate on the shoes instead of my eyes!

WIWW – Totally Thrifted Turtlenecks

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

I have been sticking to my resolution of enjoying each day to it’s fullest and not just living for the weekend, however, to be honest, I am looking forward to Saturday!  The days are getting longer so there’s more light during my evening commute, but it’s still a tiring commute so it’s only the weekends that I get to sleep in.

Today’s outfit with the exception of the animal print booties was totally thrifted from GW Boutique during their 20% off sale.

Totally Thrifted

 

I picked up a few turtleneck sweaters even though I don’t particularly like how they emphasis my turkey neck, they do keep me warm.  Mustard is one of my favorite colors and this Talbot’s sweater has just the right amount of stretch so I don’t feel like I’m being choked.

OOTD 1 28 14 025

 I fell in love with this belt but even more so with the price – $1.00 #winning

Just like black shoes, you can never have too many pairs of black pants and these are also Talbot’s.  The booties were purchased at the Deb Shop last year at the Exton Square Mall.

OOTD 1 28 14 033

 

 So the grand total for today’s outfit minus the booties was $6.80!

Have you thrifted a good deal lately?

I’m linking up with some other thrifty fashionistas over at Thrifters Anonymous and Style Link Up

Run don't Walk to Payless

It all started with an email containing a picture of these Fioni floral heels and then another email with a $10 off coupon, it was then on like popcorn!  I’m so sorry that I fell off the “won’t shop this month” wagon…but not so sorry that I won’t share this Payless shoe haul with you!

Fioni Kit Print Fioni Kit Print

These Fioni Kit Print heels were my intended but weren’t available in my size, the sales associate called other stores and found a pair at the Concord Mall.  I was then given a $4.00 coupon for the inconvenience of having to go to another location to purchase.   The manager and both sales associates were very pleasant and helpful, making my shopping experience a positive one, so much so that I purchased 4 pairs!

$10 off $25 purchase coupon

I drove to the Concord Mall after work to get the Fioni Kit Print and also got the Fioni Kipsie in Pink, spending an additional $26.08, used AAA card and $2.00 off code for completing the online survey printed on the receipt!  This shoe haul netted 6 pairs of shoes, averaging $10.60  each pair, I now have more than enough for the season and will begin purging existing to donate or sell at next month’s flea market.

Next stop is to the salon for a much needed pedicure!

Have a great weekend – Smooches!
