Yes, I need your help in a clothing dilemma again this week, and that’s on down in this post – but I’ve got a little rambling to do first…..
First off, ever heard of Cookie Lee Jewelry?? (the correct answer is “why of course, they’re one of your sponsors, I’ve thoroughly checked out all they have to offer).
Well, Amy of Cookie Lee Jewelry offered to help me find a piece of jewelry for any outfit I presented to her. So I sent these pictures – the shirt is from Downeast, and since it has a lot of interest on the front I am unsure how to accessorize it.
Amy gave me 3 great choices – and I couldn’t decide! I had her surprise me, and I love what she sent me to review!
Looks great, right?!? I think it gives the shirt a whole new life! And guess what – she’ll help anyone find a piece of jewelry to match an outfit – just send her a picture and she’ll send you recommendations. UPDATE: Amy is offering 50% off one item with her before/after help – awesome! The necklace has a real nice weight to it – a mark of quality in my mind. And most things in her catalog are under $40. Anyways, I’m way impressed – thanks Amy!!
Second, you’re probably noticing the difference in the before and after pictures – or maybe you’re not. Anyways, a friend had some hairdye from a stylist aunt sitting around (no picture or box, etc) and you’re not quite sure what you’ll get – - that’s my kind of fun! Thanks for the hair change Megan! I really love my blonde highlights, but I’m WAY to cheap to maintain them and hadn’t done so since December, so something had to give. The new look:
Third, speaking of new, last week several of you mentioned I needed some black flats. I love when you all tell me what I need – that’s the kind of direction I’m looking for. With “black flats” on my mind, I grabbed these at a garage sale for $2 and have worn them every day since – hope you approve:
Fourth, Kate got her hair done today – she came over and we realized we have the same do! Normally I run with shorter hair than her, but since hers was just cut and mine needs cut so it’s a little longer than my norm, they were the same do. Of course we took a picture (well, several pictures – holding cameras in the mirror takes a few tries!)
NOW, the Question for YOU – -
I bought this dress at a garage sale for $4 – a little high for me, but I really liked the looks of it. I wore it with a sash, but wondered if that was the right thing to do. Do you think it’s better on it’s own, or with that pop of color? Maybe a belt? The sash is really just a scarf tied around my waist, so maybe it’s too big? Oh, and do you think this dress is too short for me? My kindergartener said as much.
(side note – my toddler always has to run out when I’m getting a picture taken and pose with his hands on his hips – funny)
Oh, and with the turtleneckish thing, I thought I needed an up-do, but my hair’s pretty short. I ended up reverse flipping a few ponytails – I think it turned out cuter than it pictured here:
So anyways, thoughts on the dress in general? Sash or no sash? Too short? Pattern to busy?? Let’s here it!
