The Coatigan

The coatigan, What is it? It's a cross between a coat and a cardigan. This is the first coatigan that I have ever purchased so I thought I would share my feedback on the style.  First off, this one from Loft is amazingly soft. The material is heavy but not too heavy-perfect for when you want to wear a sweater or maybe something just a little warmer- hence the coatigan was born.  The one button design of this one is simple yet structured. I don't think that I would ever wear this buttoned but it's nice that you have that option. I purchased this one in a Petite size since I am 5'4'' and I think the length of it is perfect for me.  I do not mind the longer length; however, anyone who knows me knows that I like to show off my waist and this coatigan really goes out of its way to cover up my shape. That might be the only negative thing about this style that I have found.  Overall, I think it's a nice alternative to wearing a coat and I think I will be ab

Sunday Style: Polka Dots in the City

I could wear this dress all day every day. You know that feeling that you get when you just feel good? You've got a pretty dress on and you might feel a little like a princess? Yeah. That was me wearing this around town. Dainty Jewells has done it again! The perfect dress for parties or church or just wearing it on a Thursday. I love the design of this dress- a beautiful fitted bodice and a full skirt. The tie is detachable and adds extra to your oomph to the design and draws attention to your waistline.  Dainty Jewells is one of my favorite online shops that provides fashionable modest clothing. I love the modern and vintage designs of the clothing and the fabrics are beautiful! I also love that this company was the vision of a 16 year old girl who wanted to dress modestly and fashionable and wanted to share her designs with the world!  This dress design is called the Central Park and it also comes in girl sizes! Perfect for the holiday parties or pictures that you mig

Talbots Trunk Show

What else is more fun on a cloudy Friday afternoon than a visit with some of my favorite people at Talbots and seeing some new fashions? The atmosphere was alive and buzzing with excitement when I got to the store. It's always fun to see people that I enjoy working with and meeting new ones too! One of the things I love most about Talbots is that they treat all of their customers with care and respect. You can tell they all truly love what they do.  The brand is classic with their styles and fabrics yet on trend with updated patterns and accessories. I loved taking a look around the store before and after the show to see and feel all of the items in the new line. Three of the stores in the area combined forces along with a Regional Sales Manager to make this fashion show happen. I loved that they used their customers to model the fashions too! I walked away with a few things including this look from today: Sweater and skirt- Talbots (recent) Boots- Avenue (recent online)

Sunday Style: Faux Leather

I recently became familiar with a company called Dia&co.  I decided to give ordering a box a try. I'll tell you about my experience first before I share pictures. I talked to a stylist on the phone after I filled out a questionnaire on the website. I made sure to put things on my profile like styles and colors I like as well as amounts I would spend on particular pieces of clothing or accessories. I received my first box and loved items in it but a couple of the items weren't the best fit for me. I sent them back in the postage paid envelope and then went online to rate the items. In my second box I received a few items that I loved including this awesome olive faux leather skirt.  I kept the outfit to a minimum to show off the skirt and then added pattern with both the clutch and my shoes. I'm loving this secretary bow blouse with it too- the color is perfect with the olive for fall! This outfit is great to wear to work and then even out afterwards to dinner or

Pretty Paisley

Paisley is such a classic print. It's used in everything from clothing items to accessories. I happen to love a pretty paisley and the print on this karinadresses  dress is no exception. I think this print is perfect for fall but let's also take a minute and love on the style of this dress! It's so perfect with the vneck front and the perfect waist with a fabric belt that I tied into a bow. The skirt is a fuller style with a great length hitting around the knee.  The fabric is a washable jersey fabric so it's not only super stylish but also super comfortable! This style is called the Maggie . Such a great dress!  Here's some pictures of this beautiful paisley dress: Dress- Karina Dresses (online- click on upper box on blog) Heels- Loft (old) Bracelet- Banana Republic (earlier this year) Hope you all are off to a great start of the week!  Thanks for reading and following along with me!  Sandae
