Some of these are pleasant surprises while the others have become Fall season classics.
My favorite is the fringe Michael Kors skirt!
The other items can be found at your favorite stores (including thrift stores).
The intention is for you to be inspired by these and to be in-the-know for Fall, not to break the bank and hunt the exact items.
Looking great shouldn’t be stressful.
Oh! Did you notice the culottes making a comeback?! You can rock them with boots.
Leave a comment below with questions about any of these items.
2. Rich makeup & nail colors
3. Over the Knee Boots
4. Vibrant cape coat
I’m sure you heard.
In case you’ve been busy living an Olivia Pope-ish life, here’s what’s coming!
The Limited stores will have an Olivia inspired clothing line on September 23rd!
A 42-piece collection with lots of neutrals, blouses, wide leg pants and more…
Even Miranda would approve…
1-Size: Purchase the size that fits. The key is for it to fit you well. No one knows what that tag says but you. A good fit is a greater victory.
2-Discounts: Always ask if there are any additional discounts on your items. There are some that you won’t get unless you ask. Don’t leave the cashier without inquiring. Save!
3-Special Occasions: If you find a dress for a special occassion while casually shopping or browsing….buy it. You’ll be happy you did when that special event unexpectedly comes around.
4-Assess: Shop and style your closet before going on a shopping excursion. Know what you have and need, first.
5-Swimwear: For swimwear, size up. You can try your size but definitely at least try 1-2 sizes up as well, to be sure it fits the curves as it should.
6-Recycle: Wear a quality piece often. Style it differently with accessories for several looks and occasions.
7-Blazers: Polish any look with a tailored blazer. This is a good idea for your casual attire as well. A tailored blazer can pull the look together with minimal effort.
8-Colors: It doesn’t have to match, it just has to go. Don’t play the matchy-matchy game. Be sure pieces work well together. They do not have to match.
Blouse: Ann Taylor|Black jeggings: TJ Maxx|Honey heels: I.N.C
Necklace: Aldo| Gold clutch: Salvation Army
What do you do with your favorite maxi dress once Spring and Summer make an exit?
Update it to a Fall look, of course.
Here’s how I transitioned my black maxi dress, with two pieces.
Maxi dress: Max Studio| Denim & vegan leather jacket: Revel
Leopard clutch: LoveCortnie| Sunnies: Tom Ford
Gold Bracelets: Arden B| Belt: Ann Taylor
These white JustFab jeans are one of the best things in my closet.
They are a soft comfortable denim, with some stretch.
My curves love them.
My nude (Nine West) slingback pumps are always a great choice when wearing white.
Wear both with fun, colorful tops.
Red & white polka dot blouse| The Limited
The kimono trend is one of my favorites.
InStyle Magazine Inspired
August Style Series (Week 3 of 3)
My final look for this month’s style series is my floral, full dress.
I’ve worn this Ann Taylor dress several times this Spring and Summer.
My first time in it was in April, to see Oprah at a local event! No, Oprah didn’t notice.
Pull out your full skirts and dresses. Add cardigans, jackets, accesories, brooches, etc to give you various looks.
They work well with ballet flats, sandals or your favorite sexy heels. They will go a very long way.
