Who out there remembers Phyllis Diller? I have to confess that I can remember her a little bit. I remember the crazy laugh and the wild hair but that is about it. Are you wondering why I would be talking about Phyllis Diller? Well, my sweet, charming husband told me that I reminded him of Phyllis Diller this morning.Before I threw the skillet at him I let him explain. Actually, at that moment I was channeling Lucille Ball and said, “Ricky, you got some splaining to do!” He said that he could remember Phyllis Diller wearing leopard print and swing type tops, so I had combined the two items and ta-da……I looked like Phyllis Diller. Lol!I started to spray my hair out in a crazy hair style to see what he would say, but I had to go to work so I decided to let it go. Instead, I just added this lion’s mane looking scarf for an accessory. I thought at least that didn’t look like Phyllis Diller. Lol! I bought this fringed scarf last year at Target, I think.
I added very little jewelry. With this bold look, I didn’t think I needed to add too many accessories. I added these statement earrings from Plunder called the Ashton and a turquoise bracelet that is unavailable. I also decided to wear my c/o wooden Jord watch in the Frankie series.I wore black leggings under the tunic and I had a hard time deciding which shoe to wear. I’ll tell you which ones I wore and why at the end of the post. Here I had on my black boots ay Bandolino. I wore them the other day, (here) and you can see the links to them there.These leopard print ballet flats are too cute. They are by Isaac Mizrahi and I bought them last year I think. I am sure I bought them at the overstock outlet store in town and they are extremely comfortable.
Now for the tunic. I bought this at a new little boutique in town. I love this mock turtleneck swing top tunic. The leopard print is beyond cute and it certainly leaves an impression. This is a brand called Christian Caliendo. I only found a few tunics by this brand online and none of them looked anything like this one. So, here are a few that are by a different brand.
I guess we have talked about almost everything except my black leather Emma Fox satchel. I LOVE Emma Fox purses. I have had several and they last forever. I had a black and white one that my daughter-in-law loved and mentioned several times that she wanted it when I was done with it. At first, I thought she was just being polite and then I figured out she really did like the purse. Can you guess who has the purse now? Lol!
Just in case you were wondering, I wore the boots. The reason I wore the boots is because it was COLD!!! I didn’t want my ankles getting cold. Haha Also, here is the picture that Joe brought up to show me how I was channeling Phyllis Diller. What do you think????
