Happy Saturday everyone!!! It looks like it is going to rain all stinking day so I guess I will be getting a lot of my laundry caught up from being on vacation. I have been waiting to tell you all this story that happened while we were in Cancun. Joe thinks that I have forgotten but I can tell you that I am like an elephant when it comes to some things, I am not about to forget this anytime soon. Rodan and Fields were hosting a farewell celebration party the last night that “most” people were there. The dress code said cocktail but I know a lot of the ladies were going to wear the long flowey maxi dresses like you see on the beach. I took several things to wear but I already had one dress in mind for this event. It was hot pink so it would be noticeable, it was sleeveless so I wouldn’t be hot, it was shorter but not too short, and it fit me really well. I got completely dressed with my hair and makeup already done and was ready to walk out the door when he said, “I don’t like you in that dress.” What the what!!! Here is where I wore it the last time. He told me that the ruffles made me look frumpy. I was livid! He waited until we were ready to walk out the door and then HE became the fashion know-it-all. I yanked off the dress and went to see what I had left that I hadn’t already worn. I pulled on this Eliza J dress, which I love, but I didn’t love it for the occasion. Also, in the picture of this dress, it looks much shorter than it was on me. Mine was all the way to my knees and that made me look frumpy in my opinion. I intend to have it altered about 3 or 4 inches to make it a little shorter. The rest of the evening did not go well. He knew that he had stepped in it but it was too late. Then he tried to get me to put it back on. Was he nuts???? Does anyone else have a husband like mine? You know, the kind that doesn’t know when to keep his mouth shut! Lol!!! I told him that I didn’t ask him for his opinion and the next time to just keep it to himself! This picture was taken AFTER I had a glass of wine. I was still made but I was feeling some better. Lol!!!Remember the white dress that I wore in Cancun with the grommets down the side, (here) well I like this top just as much if not better. This cute, flirty crop top is by Umgee. I bought this at a local boutique when she posted online a picture. I immediately send her a private message and told her to hold it back for me. I loved the grommet and laced-up look but the coral color is what sold me. The color coral is so bright and it just screams summer at me. The cropped style shirts are really popular this year. This one is about as short as I want to wear one but this length looks cute and youthful. I am always up for cute and youthful! This top comes in three colors, white, mint, and they call this strawberry. I have a pair of earrings on that I bought from Plunder last summer. These were in the specials tab and when they sold out they were gone. I love the big statement earrings but I know some of you might have to warm up to them for a bit. I just got a big shipment of the new jewelry so I will start showing it pretty soon. The Sofia bracelet is still available in the new Spring catalog. It has lots of colors in it and will look great with a lot of your clothing. May is my 2nd year anniversary with Plunder and I am celebrating all month long. When you make a 50.00 purchase (excluding taxes and shipping) you will receive a FREE piece of jewelry from me as a gift! Join me in the business of Plunder Design this month and I will gift you 2 pieces of jewelry. Go to plunderdesign.com/taniastephens and hit the shop tab. Pick a party with my name on it and then have fun. My jeans are a pair from Old Navy Mid-Rise Step-Hem Rockstar jean. They have the popular raw or relaxed hem. If you notice, they also have an uneven or step hem giving them a little different look. Old Navy jeans are not very expensive so you can indulge and buy the latest trends without breaking the bank. I am wearing my normal size which is a 10. Here are a few other raw hew looks that you might like.
I took this neoprene bag with me to Cancun. I used this as a purse the entire time that I was there. I had intended to also use it as my beach bag but Rodan + Fields gifted me the cutest straw Hola bag that I ended up carrying instead. This bag was gifted to me by Purple Poppy and I am still really liking this bag. It was very handy while I was traveling on the plane since it is flexible and was easy to store under the seat. I am just curious…….would you have let Joe live? Lol!
