Today I chose a dress for my Memorial Day fashion statement. It is not often that I wear dresses. I am not sure why; they are quick, easy, and comfortable. There is only “one” item to pick out of the closet, instead of two, and all you have to add is accessories. But for some reason, unless it is church, I choose to wear something else. I bought this little dress a couple weeks ago, right after I came off my 40 day “no clothing” pledge. I saw the dress in the store, but turned my head the other way and walked away. When my pledge was over, I went back to the store to look for a purse for one of my friends, and once again saw the dress. I knew it would be perfect for me, so I decided to go ahead and spend the big bucks, $12.00. Lol!
The dress is by Isaac Mizrahi, and it is really quite plain. It doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles. There is no print, only one color, and no unusual design details (unless you count the lace overlay) in this dress. That is great if you have accessories to “spiff” up the dress. A scarf would be great, a nice printed blazer, or in this case, some cool jewelry.
I love this jewelry. It is made by Kay and Star, and you may have seen me wear their items before. Julie reached out to me to see if I would want to work together once again, and since my momma didn’t raise no fool, I said yes. Haha She told me to go to her Etsy shop and see what I would like. The red-white-and blue jewelry jumps right off the page at you. BUT, you won’t believe how nice it is when it comes in the mail. The stones just glisten; they are faceted to catch the light when you move. I like red-white-and blue jewelry, but this is so “rich”, it is hard to explain. My BFF Sandy immediately said, “I want that necklace.” Lol!
I wore this to church on Sunday, and I got a ton of compliments. Not only that, but my daughter-in-law came over to the house, and when I showed it to her, she immediately said I want to borrow that. Be on the look out for it to be on her blog today or tomorrow. She REALLY liked the other necklace I picked out (just a teaser of another upcoming post), and I foresee her borrowing that as well. Lol! Little did Julie know that she would get two bloggers for the price of one.
Since I was sticking to the Memorial Day theme of red-white-and blue, I went with a white purse and a pair of white Aerosole shoes. I looked back through my posts to see when I last carried this purse, and here is the post. I even have on bracelets in that post too from Kay and Star. The shoes are a recent purchase that I made on my trip to Tennessee. I bought them from TJ Maxx, but they didn’t have a very large supply of styles.
Be sure to look over Kay & Star’s shop on Etsy. If you choose the red-white-and blue items, you will be all set for the 4th of July. But these are so nice, you will find yourself wearing them all the time. The price point is soooo reasonable. All three of these bracelets are only $27.00. I have no idea how they manage to sell them so reasonably. BTW, these sweet ladies are going to supplying the next anniversary giveaway. Just another reason to check the out.
