I am often asked what I consider my style. When I first started this blog, I asked myself the same thing. I didn’t think I had a distinct style. I did a blog post about finding your style, and I asked my husband his take on mine. Classy with a little trashy was his answer. Since I know, and love, my husband; his answer did not phase me. That was right down his alley. Haha He did go on to explain that he would think my style is on the classic side, but with just a hint of sexiness thrown in for good measure. Lol! So, today I am all about keeping you classy.Maybe that explains one of the reasons I like a little boutique, that is right down the road, so much. It is named The Classy Closet. OMG, how cute is that? I have been shopping at this boutique for several years and have loved everything I have gotten from them. Here, here, and here are just a couple of items I have worn from Classy Closet. BTW, here is the link to the dress/tunic I wore for my Easter post. Amanda is the sweetest thing ever, and if you visit the store, you can’t help but fall in love with her. While I was shopping there a week-or-so ago, she asked if I would be willing to do a collaboration. Heck yeah!!! I already shop there, so getting something for free, just to show you, was a given. Especially since I would show you anyway. Hahaha
The big difference is, most of the time the purchases I make are not always on her website for you to purchase. That is NOT the case this time. Amanda picked out a couple things that she thought I would like, and this time she made sure they would be available on the website. This burgundy print dress/tunic is awesome. It is fully lined, no see through issues here, and a beautiful rich color. I love that this dress/tunic will be perfect even till this fall. I chose to wear navy crop leggings with the tunic, which by the way I purchased at Classy Closet probably a month ago. I like that you can see a close-up of the different colors in this picture. Magenta and dark teal, along with ivory are the three main colors. I can see a hint of purple also, but that may just be the magenta and teal combining to make purple. Red + blue = purple. Yes, I used to paint. I am wearing a Stella & Dot Zuni layering necklace with ivory semi precious howlite stones, and a monarch inspirations initial necklace with crystals. Here is a similar necklace.
I thought the turquoise Dooney & Bourke purse looked great with the tunic. It helped to bring out the blue. Here is the Dooney purse and here is a similar (but less expensive) version. I am wearing a pair of navy espadrilles from Gilli. I bought these at the QVC outlet store. The gold braiding is what sold me. Here are some other similar shoes.
The ivory fringed vest is also a purchase I made a month or so ago at Classy Closet. Are you seeing a trend here? I wanted you to see the vest from the back, it really is gorgeous. This fringy boho look is very in style right now. I have already worn this several times, you just haven’t got to see it yet. Here is a similar vest in peach that is also adorable.I hope you liked my venture into boho. Amanda recommends sizing up on the dress because of the lining, however this is a large (which I usually wear) and it fits fine. Be sure to tell Amanda hello for me, and tell her she needs to put more items on the website. Haha Her store is packed, waaaay more items than what in on the website.
