Outfit of the Day #6: Show-off-Your-Curves

The final Outfit of the Day in the Outfit of the Day series begins with a lovely fitted blouse with an embroidered rose design. The blouse is fully lined with a back zipper and a cute bow tied at the neck. Since the blouse is fitted, it will fit nicely over the show-off-your-curves, slim-fitting daffodil-yellow skirt with ruffles along the hem that will swing when you walk. The outfit will definitely catch the eye of those who pass you on the street, in the office, at the bar, or, wherever you are so inclined to walk amongst people. While you are walking amongst people, you will also be wearing yellow Italian alligator print pumps with chunky heels that are a fashion trend of the fall season. Be sure to take your gorgeous and sleek black clutch with the gold chain with you. The clutch matches both your blouse and skirt and the gold chain sparkles in the bright and cheery daffodil-yellow about your hips and feet. Remember to pack your compact mirror designed with Mother-of-Pearl and a peacock, because using the computer monitor as a mirror just doesn’t work. Yes, I have tried this. Back on track, while your show-off-your-curves skirt is swinging to your own inner child music, your beautiful onyx drop earrings will be swinging right along with your cheerful attitude because when you wear this outfit, your divineness will sparkle to the world.

Outfit of the Day 5: Casual Saturday

It’s casual Saturday! Yay!

Sing songy! Yellow, yellow, still on my mind. Yellow, yellow is always…a great find. Yellow, yellow, la, da, dee, daaaaa.

Yes, it’s another yellow outfit. Although, today’s outfit is yellow and turquoise from head to toe and even the iPod case. 

It’s so funny to me that for the past few weeks I had a horizontal tie-dye shirt in my favorites. Well, yesterday, a random idea popped into my head, that wouldn’t it be funny, if I accidently posted a shirt for a baby with an adult skirt. As I was looking at the photos in my favorites yesterday evening, I read the title of the tie-dye shirt.  The title read that it was a fit for a 4T. I was so disappointed, and somewhat dumbfounded, but, not for long. Etsy has everything! It did not take me long to find another pretty, yellow and turquoise tie-dye top, this time fit for an adult. Shaking my fists by my ears. Yay!

Tea Time

One day I walked into a store and my eyes feasted on a sleek silver and red kettle. I oohed and ahhed until I turned over the tag and saw the $48.00 price. My eyes popped out of my head, and I put the kettle back on the shelf. I thought, who would pay that much to boil water? I know, someone did, it just wasn’t me.

Fast forward two years, and today, I am oohing and ahhhing over an adorable sunshine yellow teapot and the accessories. For a total of $37.49 without the shipping included you can receive a teapot, 50 bags of vanilla tea, a teabag rest, and a talking mug that has “Wake Up” printed on one side. Since yellow is an optimism creating color, your spirits and your kitchen will be warm and happy all winter long.

Outfit of the Day 1: Bright and Cheery

Ever since I posted “Outfit of the Week 7: Glamour Snapshot,” bright and cheery yellow has imprinted itself upon my brain every waking minute of the day. I have also noticed that my obsession with Etsy has increased. If I’m not thinking about bright and cheery yellow, then I’m thinking about matching outfits.

So, for this week only, I am indulging my obsession of bright and cheery yellow and matching outfits by posting daily outfits for six days. I’ll be skipping Wednesday, since that is usually a non-clothing post day. By next Monday, my obsession will be over and I’ll be back to my twice a week posting.

Outfit of the Week 7: Glamour Snapshot

On a sunny and warm, late summer day, I imagine the actress, Jessica Lange, playing a character named Irene. She, and her younger sister, Dee Dee, played by Rachel McAdams are driving through a mid-western countryside in an updated, classic, late-model, 1955 sweet-pink, Ford Convertible. They have just won big at the horse races and are on their way to meet up with their boyfriends for a celebration picnic, before they head home. Dee Dee is charmingly attired in modest black dress with white pearls and black sandals. Irene is dressed in the elegant and glamorous outfit below. 

Irene shields her eyes from the sun and asks Dee Dee where she put her sunglasses.

Dee Dee replies, “Irene, you’re always losing your glasses. She leans over the back seat. “I don’t see them, but here, shield your eyes with your beautiful black hat with the grosgrain ribbon woven throughout. You always look so pretty in it like a Southern Belle, except you come from Wisconsin.”

Irene smiles.

“Irene, aren’t you a little bit hot with that scarf  around your neck?” asks Dee Dee. 
“No, it’s sheer enough to let the warm breeze keep my neck cool as we speed down this highway to meet up with the guys. Besides, this elegant scarf keeps my neck from tanning and keeps the wrinkles at bay.”

“Irene, I sure do like your drop waist, lemon-yellow dress, you’re wearing. The sprigs of leaves remind me of the tall grasses swaying back and forth on the gentle breeze back at home.”
Irene looks at Dee Dee,”Girl, I wasn’t thinking about grass when I bought this dress. Where do get these ideas from?” She wipes away a smudge of lipstick from the side of Dee Dee’s face. “I bought this dress because the softly gathered pleats at the waist show off my lovely figure. Besides, the dress is Luke’s favorite. His eyes always light up every time he sees me in it.”

Irene removes one hand from the steering wheel, “A lady down the street from me makes such wonderful jewelry. This bracelet has genuine black swarovski crystals. It is so divine. Look at the detail of the silver bead accents.”
“It’s a lovely design,” replies Dee Dee.

“The tiny metal studs on these platform, peep-toe heels match the bracelet quite well,” said Irene. “Did you know these heels have a back zipper?” She laughed, ” Makes me think of – “
“I don’t want to hear it,” interrupted Dee Dee. “You’ve got that weird twinkle in your eye, and I know what that means, besides, pull over there, the men are right under that willow tree.”
Irene follows the direction of Dee Dee’s arm and turns the ignition off. She jumps out of the car and runs over to Luke and throws her arms around him, laughing. She calls out to Dee Dee who is still in the car.

“Dee Dee, bring my tote, will ya? I packed a big lunch for all of us. Dee Dee pulled the tote from the back seat and nearly stumbled out of the car under its weight. “Goodness, she must have brought the entire contents of the fridge,” said Dee Dee, as Cal, her boyfriend, easily shouldered the heavy tote.
A bright yellow butterfly on the tote caught her eye. She admired the contrasting grey butterflies and floral print. The cheery yellow ribbon reminded her of their mother, the one Irene most favored. She grabs Cal’s hand and smiles up at him.  They walk over to Irene and Luke who were already relaxing on the blanket covered ground.

Outfit of the Week: Yellow

After gazing at the door for about two weeks and losing out on a cute pair of black, wide-leg, Capri pants on Etsy, that I could have paired with an equally cute yellow wrap had I not been so indecisive,  I’ve decided to start a new series called, Outfit of the Week based on matching pieces of clothing that I find irresistible on Etsy.

Starting off the series is a charming yellow wrap top with a large yellow button fitted at the collar-bone. The top of the wrap has a colorful geometric design which continues to the back of the wrap. The bottom of the wrap is loose-fitting and matches quite well with the “Black Capri Ruffle Pants.” Accessorizing the outfit is a Guitar Pick necklace and a pair of Vintage Berebi Pretty Flower earrings both sporting muted blues in their designs which brings out the blue in the wrap. Topping off the outfit is a pair of black suede and open toe patent pumps.
