I never thought that I could get excited about a steamer for my clothing. I used to iron all of Joe’s clothing, and it would take one entire day out of my week to iron for hours and hours to get them looking nice. But, he told me to quit doing that years ago, and I happily obeyed his command. He said that the clothing would hang in the closet and get wrinkled again before he ever pulled it out to wear. He said that if he needed something ironed, then we could iron it at that time. Thankfully, Joe is a laid-back kind of guy. He doesn’t want his pants creased unless we are going someplace special. He doesn’t want to look horribly wrinkled, but he is not a “fussy” dude. Lol! I bet most of you would have already guessed that. Truthfully, I am not a “fussy” gal either. I want to look nice, but I also don’t like spending hours ironing. Plus, I am always somewhat scared of some clothing because they are delicate, and I am afraid that I’ll leave an iron mark. The top that I have on today is one of those types of tops. I hooked up my steamer, and within 60 seconds, the steam was coming out. I didn’t get very close to the fabric because I wanted to see how the material reacted. I started seeing the wrinkles disappearing, so I kept going over the top, keeping about 5 or 6 inches away from the fabric. It worked like a charm and only took about a minute. WOW! I am officially hooked!!! If you are wondering about my steamer, then check out yesterday’s post since I linked to it there.
I love this romantic wrap blouse! Stripes are generally not my friend, but all of the different angles are flattering. I love the slight flair of the waist since it gives me curves that I don’t possess. This blouse is lined, and it has a small snap at the neckline to hold the blouse closed. I am wearing a medium, and it fits great. Here is the link, and it is on sale, plus an extra 60% off!!!
I went simple and silver today. I added a necklace that I ordered from Etsy last September. It is vintage, but it doesn’t have an inscription of a name. The simple silver hoops are the Ridge earrings. The large silver link bracelet is the Madijeanne, and the smaller two-strand silver bracelet is the Maggie.
How do you like the Sailor button skirt? I love the skirt, but I am going to have to exchange it for a smaller size. It is way too big around the waist, and I feel like it is going to slide down. I am wearing a large, but I need a medium. I know better than to buy a large in clothing when it has a pull-on waist. I always have to size down in that scenario. The skirt is a heavy Ponte knit, and it is machine-washable. This was part of my haul from Cato Fashions yesterday, and here is the link for you.
I thought that the outfit needed a pop of color, and these hot pink pumps were just the ticket. I haven’t worn these in a while, but they are beautiful. The problem is that they are also a tad bit tight, so I don’t wear them often, especially if I am going to have to walk for a long way. I wish I could stretch them just a smidge, so if anyone has any foolproof way to accomplish that, I would be thrilled.
Today is the LAST DAY! It is the last day to take advantage of several deals. Rodan + Fields has really outdone themselves this month with a lot of great incentives. My favorite incentive is a FREE Lash Boost to anyone who wants to become a business owner with one of their top business kits. The reason this is my favorite incentive is simple; you get your very own business, you get the products for 50% off the retail price and all future purchases at 25% off retail, you get one of the top-selling products, valued at 155.00, for FREE, and you get to become my business partner! All of that for under 1000.00. Have you ever looked at going into business for yourself? Let me just say that you won’t be able to find a lot of great opportunities like this for under 1000.00.
The second incentive to take advantage of is the FREE jar of Active Hydration Body Replenish.
