Fashionistas, welcome! Sharing one of my new year styles straight outta…not Compton, but My Fashion Haus. Maybe you have stopped by after seeing my link with my friends at The Blended Blog, or with Carrie and Jill for their Thursday Fashion Files. Maybe you found me via Jennie’s Fabulous Friday fashion posts or Laura’s Confident Twosday. Whatever the case, welcome, welcome, welcome.
According to my stats for 2016, some of my fashion link-up posts were among the post popular with you guys out there. Ha! I think that is so cute. Because, as you can no doubt tell by the graphic featuring my fashion haus, I don’t really take myself seriously in the style department. I just kind of get dressed in the morning. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Lots of days my outfit of the day sure isn’t anything to write home about.
But here are a couple of pics of an OOTD I wore this past week that I kind of liked. New year styled.
Loft Outlet Dress for Saturday Evening Church
Skinny mirror strikes again. Better than a diet, that one! But there are other mirrors around the house (and out in the real world). They indicate that it’s a good thing I started back on 21 Day Fix and Weight Watchers this week.
This brocade-look dress was $29 at my Loft Outlet. The fabric is heavy enough to be forgiving as it skims over my lumps and bumps. And I was so glad to find something with longer sleeves. What’s the deal with sleeveless dresses and spaghetti straps in the winter? No bueno for this grandma.
I paired my dress with patterned tights and black pumps.
Not too sure about that pattern mixing between the tights and the dress, but had to go with the only dark tights I had. Clearly, I need to remedy that situation.
Kohl’s Fitted Trench and Elle Black Bag
I added my Kohl’s fitted black trench and Kohl’s Elle black bag, and we were off to church and dinner afterward.
This little trench found me shortly after I saw the movie “Silver Linings Playbook”, in which Jennifer Lawrence wears a very similar coat.
Doesn’t she look sensational? But I bet mine was cheaper…wait…is that something to brag about? Ooops. Oh, well, $40 at Kohl’s.
After church Saturday night, we drove through downtown El Paso to check out the Christmas lights. Good thing we did, because they were taken down the following evening. It was a dazzling display.
Virtual Fashion Show
Below I’ve pulled together some pieces similar to those “styled” above. Take a peek to see if there is anything in this virtual fashion show below that catches your eye.
There you have it, my first dress new year styled. And with that, I am calling it a post and a day. Tomorrow is Friday and we have a three-day weekend to enjoy. Thankful that we can celebrate the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his accomplishments for civil rights and equality for all. Been talking a lot about that at school this week. Good stuff.
Hugs and kisses,
