Do you like pockets? (random question). I certainly do and that’s the first thing I noticed about this collection other than the awesome display of maxi trapeze dresses with ruffles and opera coats. I am such a fan.
This Resort 2019 collection by designer, Antonio Berardi is everything that is stylish in the world of fashion from the use of stripes, oversized smocks and the beautiful color yellow on the model’s gorgeous dark skin.
Designers truly set the stage for the upcoming fashion trends.
I went to my cousin’s wedding this past weekend which was beautiful. I almost felt a watery substance trying to form in my eyes when they were saying their vowels. Love is so special to me. ❤
Anyway, my off the shoulder dress that I wore was not really hard to find as I shop at Vici Collection all the time. This store has becomes my favorite store. Their selection of bohemian chic-date-night-brunch-with-my-girlfriends apparel is par excellent. It seems every week now I seem to find something else I add to my wishlist.
This year is going by so quickly and one thing I know for sure is I am growing with the times. I am not the type of person who says “Shh, don’t tell people my age.” I am proud to be 42 years old. The growth and experiences that God has allowed me to conquer, I don’t take that for granted.
Anyway, the first dress I am wearing is one of my favorite vintage dresses. I have had it for years and it has a few tears here and there that I had to mend but I love it because it’s so carefree. I am a maximalist and it’s hard for me to part with my maxi dresses.
The 2nd look is featuring a pleather skirt I purchased for GoJane.com last year. I love that store.
Happy Friday!!!! I am about to be so transparent. My blog dues came up for renewal recently and I thought “Hmmm, I should probably just let this go.”
I have been blogging for many years as a hobby with minimal success, if any……but a still, small voice says to me “Keep Going”. I talk to God alot and so I “Keep Going”. Not sure if this blog is even helping someone but I hope so. Fashion Blogging is not just a show and tell but to inspire.
Anyway, the above sounds a little bit like rambling so I am going to go on to what I am wearing in the pictures. I have had these striped pants for a couple of years and thought about a different way to wear them…………enter a scarf from my closet that I tucked into a strapless bra and “Voila!!” my #ootd
When I become rich, I am going to totally show my design team these pictures and tell them “This is how I want my home decorated.” Inspired.
This past Thursday, my family and I went to see “Avengers” Infinity War and if you are a superhero geek like my family is, the move is a MUST see. I was so stressed the last half hour of the movie that I sat in my seat with my hands clasped closely to my face…………(in my mind, I am an imaginary chain smoker so my imaginary ciggy’s were everywhere once the movie ended). It was that stressful.
The car ride home required us to listen to something soothing and peaceful like jazz. My boys don’t even like jazz music yet they were just fine after seeing this movie……….. 🙂
