What would you think would be a fashion bloggers nightmare? There are probably several things but I have experienced TWO of them since I have started this blogging process. I keep two SD cards going at all time for my computer. I keep one in my camera and the other is usually in my computer where I download the pictures. After I download the pictures then I will change it out when the other SD card has several days of pictures. Once I put the SD card back in the camera I will reformat the card. This erases all the pictures on the card and starts out new again. I made the mistake of formatting the card one day BEFORE I had downloaded the pictures to my computer. I lost about 4 days of outfits! That made me almost cry.But my latest episode might actually bring me to tears. Yesterday I was complaining that my camera seemed to be fuzzing the feet area. I looked online and it was suggested that I make sure all the lenses are clean. I clean the outer lens all the time but I have never tried to clean the interior lenses. I broke down and took the lens off and got out a lens cleaning brush and cleaned everything. When I put it back together and I looked through the viewfinder there were black spots all over it. So, I took it back apart and cleaned it with a cloth that is made for computers and phone screens. It looked much better so I thought everything was good to go. This morning I went outside to take pictures and the camera wouldn’t work. It just made a whirring noise. I took everything apart and tried again and it worked. But only for about two or three shots and then quit working again. It has done that for the biggest part of the day. I am going to try again but I have to have a camera. That is not negotiable! This is the last look in the dress series. For those who don’t wear dresses, I guess you are glad this series is finally over. Today I decided to go with the boho or beach look. This is something that I would wear to the beach with my bathing suit on under the dress. I would use the dress as a cover-up but I like to have something that looks presentable if we stop to go eat at a restaurant. This would be so easy to throw on and go inside and eat. No one would ever even know I had been to the beach unless the bathing suit was wet or I had sand all over me. Hahaha!I can’t believe that all my jewelry today is in the current Plunder spring line. That is a first since they launched the new line. I might have actually squealed when I opened the Monna necklace. This is a simple necklace, it doesn’t have a lot of flashy do-dads or bling going on. It has a delicate chain with a hammered look disk with the stamped BLESSED. A small cross with a tiny rhinestone center is also stamped on the disk. It is hard to see in my picture but there is an arrow charm along with the turquoise bead. The longer necklace was one that I got as a Plunder Posse one month. I am thrilled to see that they have added it to the spring line and it is called Bernie. The turquoise leaf is joined with an array of smaller charms and they tinkle when you walk. The Brooks bracelet just matched the necklace and it is adjustable up to 8 inches. If you would like to purchase any of the jewelry, this is my current party, www.plunderdesign.com/party/tania7 I would love to have you join me and be on my Plunder team. I am offering an extra piece of jewelry for all those who join Team Shimmer and Shine this month!!!Isn’t this the cutest straw bag? I bought this in Rogersville, Tennessee at a little store but it is by Vera Bradley. I am not a huge fan of all the prints by Vera Bradley but I like it when I find solid, like my hot pink leather tote, and this straw bag. The prints look really cute just on the birds and not an all over thing. The bright orange straps are also a cute focal point.
50 IS NOT OLD | HOW TO STYLE A DRESS SERIES, PART 6
If I was wearing this outfit to the beach then I would have on sandals. I love, love, love these crochet sandals c/o Nina Shoes. They are called the Nevaeh but there are different several styles very similar with the heels being different heights. The crochet must have some elastic qualities in the thread because these give when you walk. The heels are a cork base and it makes them comfortable to walk in. I can wear these all day long and not have my feet hurt. That is important.
I bought this long crochet and fringe vest last year. I like the long fringe tassels and the inserts that break up the solid material. Those are some of the details that make the vest interesting. I might like it better if it was white instead of this creamy color but I will somehow suffer through my disappointment. Because the vest is a “stand-out” type accessory you don’t even notice the dress, the vest is what catches your eye. This is why it is possible to wear the same item (the dress) and not have it look exactly the same. People would probably not even notice it was the “same” dress.
I am curious now. Which look did you like the best? Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, or today’s look Part 6.
What do you think about my series posts? Do you like this type posts and want to see more of these or do you get tired of seeing a different version of the same outfit every day? Would you prefer a 3-day series instead of the 6 days? Let me hear you roar!
