Monday was a hard day for everyone. It was just so horrific to see the news that I only looked once. I just kept imagining how everyone was so happy and thrilled to be going to an event with family or friends to see a country music artist that they liked. Not one of the victims of the shooting even gave a second thought that they were going to be shot that day. I know this is a fashion blog so I am not going to say much more. I think it has really hit home to me because Joe and I were just at one of those festivals and saw Jason Aldean.I was remembering how long it took to walk from the stage to where the buses were parked. There were thousands and thousands of happy, slightly intoxicated, concertgoers walking around. At the festival, we attended in Florida it came a torrential downpour and Jason Aldean only got to sing about 3 or 4 songs before he had to leave the stage. Some of the women who attended that concert had worn high heels and expensive shoes so they had grocery bags tied up on their feet. I am praying for all those involved in the shooting and I am choosing to remember the fun and the happiness that these events bring to people. Did you know that this fall it is all about sleeves??? Sleeves in all different shapes and sizes are the real focal point of this season. I found this deep dark teal knit twist top at Trendy Threads, the local boutique in town, and I took it home to try on. I hardly ever try anything on in a store because I hate the whole process of taking off and putting back on. Anyway, I bought a large but when I tried it on it was too big so I set it aside to take back. I looked around and noticed a bag that came from Trendy Threads on the other side of the room so I went and looked inside. There was this very same top inside but in a medium, which fit perfectly by the way. I would like to say that this is the first time something like this has happened but I am afraid lightning would strike if I did. I had bought this top when we were having a cool spell and I set it aside and just forgot.
I am really loving the fall jewelry from Plunder. Yes, I know that I have said that multiple times, I didn’t forget that. Lol!!! The Keri necklace is 2 strands of tiny gold squares. It is approximately 22″ long and it is a necklace that is somewhat dainty. The long necklace is the Landon. I love the Olive green leather and gold chain necklace. The dangles all match different other pieces of jewelry in the fall collection. You can’t see it in this picture but there is a blue drop on this that matches the earrings that I have on. The Ennis bracelet is a real statement piece. I love the hinge clasp and all the different colors in this piece. You can see the deep blue center of the burgundy flower matches the top that I have on.Here are the Aila earrings. These remind me of I Dream of Jeannie. I think the earrings have a Moroccan design and I love the Lapis blue bead drop. These are a 2-inch drop which is a nice length for more everyone. To order from Plunder you just go to www.plunderdesign.com/taniastephens and pick a party with my name in it. The Tulip Tote is from Dooney & Bourke. I am so proud of myself for figuring out the name of this tote, it was not easy. I easily found the serial number but you can’t find the name from just the serial number. So, I searched on eBay and sure enough, there were several that showed up. Who needs Google when you have eBay? Lol! The Marc Fisher suede ankle boot w/fringe detail is called the Novice. It comes in wine, dark brown, and black leather as well as the light natural. I have only had this boot for a short time but I am really liking it. The open toe design is VERY popular right now and I am trying to get my wear in before if starts to snow. I don’t want blue toes, even if they would match my outfit. Lol!!My StitchFix purchase of these Kut From The Kloth jeans has really opened my eyes. I broke down and ordered me another pair of dark brown jeans from them which haven’t gotten here yet. I am anxious to see if I will like them as much as I like this pair. I think this pair is the Diana style which is a skinny leg. I ordered my normal size which fits perfectly. The month of September was really great with my R+F team. Our total sales grew at a 50% rate! We added 8 new consultants to the team including 1 in Australia and we had 7 ladies hit promotions within the company. It is like watching a snowball rolling down the mountain. It is so much fun helping women feel better about their looks with clothing AND skincare, it is like the go hand-in-hand.
