LADY IN RED 2

In my last post, I showed you my first attempt at making an outfit from my new red WalMart dress. Here are some more results of my dress-up day. I decided to try it out with white this time:

Fairly satisfied with these looks, but not sure I like the shoes with it. Will probably try something different. Again, I don’t try to analyze why…I just go with my instincts.

I felt somewhat successful using white, but decided to experiment with something a little bolder. HATED IT, but I will show you 😉

Kind of looks like some kind of costume.

And speaking of HATING IT, I tried something else, because one of my readers recently suggested wearing a shirt as a top piece. I replied that shirts usually are too boxy, but I did give it a try. DOUBLE HATED IT!

That’s all for today, but I am not done yet. 😉   I spent a lot of time on this little project. More next time.

Update on publishing schedule: I will still plan to post on Sundays, and will try to also post on Thursdays. I am discontinuing the TBT posts, and instead have created a new page with my favorite posts from days gone by.

SINCEREST FORM OF FLATTERY

We have all heard the saying that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Today I would like to share with you the outfit that was inspired by the awesome blogger who inspired me to start this blog. I guess I am imitating her in more ways than one! I hope she is flattered.

She is much more disciplined than I will ever be.  She posts an outfit EVERY DAY! I love the fact that she uses a lot of color, and that she always has cute shoes.  She recently had a post about shoes, so be sure to look for that. This link is for the outfit that I tried to steal.

Please notice where my cute top was purchased, as was by the way, the adorable REVERSIBLE bag, which was a whopping $16.00.

I have had the pants for awhile. Again, these are in the category of “foundational” (I am pretty sure that is not really a word). They are Peter Nygard slims, and I think they are about $60.  But any cute white pants or capris would be fine.

I would be very flattered if you tried to copy this look. If you do, please send an email to  Blog5020@aol.com and include a photo.  I will post it on the Reader’s Outfits page.

Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to subscribe by email if you would like to receive notice of new posts that way.

Look forward to seeing you soon!
