 img_8948img_8949Hello ladies!Hard to believe September is coming to a close. However, here in NC it generally means a bit cooler temps in Oct to look forward to.  How was your weekend? Today I was in the mood to style one of my Karina dresses for Fall and I chose this orange-red-olive-coblalt-yellow Paisley wrap dress as my foundation. Paisley, not floral :-) The bright colors culminating in a beautiful print really caught my eye and I would be styling this throughout the fall with boots, booties and layers. I did try a jersey brown long sleeve top under the dress, but it ended up a bit bulky, and I decided to go for a jacket instead. Wrap dresses, I find are flattering on every figure, and I do love the ease of it.. a pin is necessary on the lower half., especially during windy fall days! I love a military look and i am looking for a pair of olive booties! ...

IMG_7726Hello LadiesWelcome to Turning Heads Tuesday! June is going fast and there is much going on next month to look forward to. Birthdays, Anniversaries, vacation.. etc.I am looking forward to it! Today I am bringing you this amazing shirtdress/tunic I first saw on Annette, and loved the soft color palette as well as the trendy safari look that is big in fashion right now. As the temps increase, as they are in NC, I like comfortable, light fabrics with breathability. This dress is very light and so easy to wear. Let's just say I love shopping on Zara!

IMG_6978Hello LadiesI hope you all had a great weekend and Happy Easter. .We went to a Vineyard, took the puppies and had a good time. There are a few that allow dogs, and we try and take advantage when it is nice outside. Service was great, as was a new grape, Chambourcin, a dry red varietal that is becoming more popular here. All was well, except for a few overly intoxicated women wanted to dog-nap my puppy Truffles. That is another story for another time. Easter made me think of all of the traditions in our family; Mass, Blessing the Baskets, getting together and I think hunting for Easter Baskets until we were about 25. Ha.  Easter also reminds me of Spring, and today I am reviewing an talking about my dress from Coldwater Creek. When Coldwater Creek approached me about reviewing an item on their site, I was excited as it was a familiar shop and I knew they had some lovely clothes. I was to choose two items from their site and they would send one. I initially chose this lilac blazer with all its embroidered style I thought would look wonderful adding a pretty pastel to white, a gorgeous spring shade to a dress , plenty of options. However, since this was unavailable, I chose to no surprise, a dress! Looking at their on-line site I fancied several dresses, such as the  Table for Two  dress, accentuating the waist and a staple piece. I also liked the printed Lavender Fields dress that was longer which I thought would look smashing for a wedding or just out for an  afternoon lunch.  However, the Floral Mesh Knit Dress caught my eye, in a periwinkle or "serenity' color, I liked the vertical lines in the style of the dress, adding length and giving a lean look to the wearer. The mesh material made the dress very comfortable to wear and also light for warm weather. The pattern was subtle, tiny flowers with stems made the dress look delicate as does the length and flow of the dress. The fit was quite good, if not a little loose, and I am wearing   an XS. I would also recommend a heel, albeit small or higher to give the legs length, continuing with the vertical line. Flats may be fine, but it may also look to shorten the legs as the dress comes inches past my knee. ( But I am 5 foot 9)  I also HAD to share my new fancy footwear with you too! I loved the vintage look to these B.A.I.T shoes, as I love a pretty t-strap and the lavender color caught my attention for spring. Since they have a tiny wedge, they are  do-able for me and fun to wear. Perhaps I will wear this outfit to my next Lindy Hop! :)

Hello Ladies,Are you a stillleto kind of girl? Or do you wear flats? Perhaps you like a kitten heel like me.However, now one can have a happy medium.  A trend I can get behind, or should I say, "on top of". As you know, because of my medical condition, I can not wear a stilleto or a high heel. However, with this trend,  there are some very pretty and comfortable looking shoes with a 1-1.5 inch block heel. Today I am sharing some of my favorite block heels, which, let's face it, is easier to walk in, and makes one's legs...
