Let me Tell you Something About my Vest Friend

Happy Friday Fash Dolls! Although this week was a short one it was still just as busy as a full week. Let me take a minute to introduce you to my furry vest (best) friend, Audrey Hepburn Williams. She was finally ready to make her blog debut as the newest member of the Williams family! Anyway let's get to the fashion.

My favorite fall fashion item is a good flannel. I got this one at Macy's last year. Another item I am totally loving is the military inspired vest. This utilitarian chic number is perfect for fall actives like apple/pumpkin picking, hayrides, long walks with your dog, etc. It is fashionable yet functional. I love the fact that I have pockets to put my phone, keys, or even some money for hands free adventuring. This vest I got at my office's sample sale for only $3, what a steal?!

Well fash dolls I inspire you to find your own vest or flannel as they are the perfect fall pieces for your wardrobe.

Till next time!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

Lace Up Your Dancing Top

Hi Fash dolls! I can hardly believe it's the last day of September. Maybe this isn't a dancing top but hopefully you got my pun.

Lace up is one of the hottest trends out there. Literally there is lace up on shirts, dresses, down sleeves, or like the neckline of this top. It's bananas but awesome! I found this little lace up top number at TJ Maxx online. I absolutely love this burgundy color for fall it's so rich. Did you catch the bell sleeve on this knit? Just another reason I feel for this top. The jeans are lucky brand which I found for a steal at TJ Maxx in store. I have a hard time finding pants because I'm short & curvy but these fit like a dream.

I challenge you to get a lace up something whether it be a top or dress in your wardrobe. You will certainly be able to find something within your budget & personality! Well dolls tills next time. Happy Shopping !

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

Twirl into Fall

Hi fash dolls! I hope this week has been treating you well. I did treat myself to a pumpkin spice latte as the air has been cool & crisp. There is no denying that fall is in the air. I think that every gal needs a dress to twirl into the new season.

This dress I actually got for $3 at my office’s sample sale. Good news for you! There is a ton of trapeze style t-shirt dresses like this one out there now. They make the perfect transition piece. I am wearing mine right now with open toe booties & a fabulous fall hat. When the colder months roll in you can pair a dress like this with tights, tall boots, & a fur vest!

Not to mention this dress is super comfortable. Pick up a dress like this for yourself; it is the perfect fall/winter staple.

Well till next time dolls!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

Looking for a new trend to try? The bohemian style is back in full swing. This whimsical and carefree look is 70's inspired and I am definitely crushing on it. Boho babes like Rachel Zoe, Nicole Richie, and the Olsen twins have perfected this Woodstock chic look. To exude a bohemian flair try wide leg pants, bell sleeves, or floppy hats. I would also suggest trying suede, fringe, neutral floral prints, and flared jeans.

This breezy peasant dress is boho chic paired with stacked heeled boots. Peasant style necklines and sleeves also radiate a bohemian style. This muted floral print allows me to channel my inner flower child.

Whether you dip your toe in this trend or all full steam ahead make sure that you are making smart purchases. Look for things in your budget and personal style. This trend is everywhere and as mentioned earlier there is a variety of ways to try it. Well dolls I hope you enjoyed this week's look as much as I did. Stay tuned for more fashion and fun.

Put Your Very Vest Forward

If you live in Massachusetts (even if you don't), you should be aware that it is going to hit the seventies on Monday. I repeat seventy degrees in October. No matter your location, New England is notorious for its unpredictable weather. A vest is a perfect way to keep up with the constantly changing atmosphere. Not only are vests a good transition piece but they are the latest trend. Right now you will see tailored vests which are super chic (and I am currently on the market for one myself) but this one is flowy and fun.

This vest I got at a little boutique in Connecticut on my way to one of my buying trips to NYC. I fell in love the neutral tie dye and the versatility of this piece. It is outfitted with black skinny jeans, booties, and a tank for this warmer weekend. Take it into winter by switching out the tank with a long sleeve black t-shirt and push it to summer by throwing it over a dress with sandals. The vest trend is here to stay and worth investing in. I favor this trend over others because the vest can truly be worn all year round. You are spending money on clothing and you want to make sure you are getting your monies worth! Vests are out there and you will be able to find one that perfectly fits your personality and budget. As always make sure it flatters your wonderful and unique shape.

Well dolls till next time! Happy shopping and enjoy this lovely weekend.

The Must Have Booties

Hello October! Pumpkin spice is taking over, the leaves are turning colors, and the air is getting colder. Sadly it is time to put the sandals away to break out the boots. Although I love summer and like to think of myself as a mermaid you can't fight the inevitable, especially in New England. But I am not mad about it. I love scarves and I really love these booties! They are so versatile and comfortable. Booties are everywhere and easy to find. I found myself shopping at Kohl's one day while assisting a friend in finding the perfect new wardrobe additions. We of course had to browse thru the shoe department and as soon as we entered these babies where calling my name.

Here I have the booties paired with black skinnies, a chambray shirt, and an olive green jacket. Layering is key practice in the fall. Layers keep you warm but your office or home could be warm too so you can easily take off a layer or add one when necessary. There is no denying that booties are a fall must have, they are worth investing in. Like any clothing purchase make sure you find a pair that suits your style. Be you, be fabulous! See below another way to wear your booties.

Well dolls till next time. Happy Shopping!58

Thirsty for Sangria

 

IMG_0739-14IMG_0716-1IMG_0757-22IMG_0754-21IMG_0718-2IMG_0764-26

"Sangria, an exotic red that evokes a sense of glamorous adventures and faraway destinations..." (Pantone)

Sangria is smooth, fruity, and delicious; making it one of my favorite drinks. Not only is it an enjoyable beverage consumed by many, it happens to be a chic color that is making a splash this fall. According to the world's color authority, Pantone, Sangria is one of the "it" colors for fall. This beautiful deep red does not wash you out and looks great on most skin types. To give you some inspiration, pictured is a variety of clothing pieces in the latest color trend. Want to give this shade a taste test? Interested in playing with Sangria but, feel a little hesitant experiment with accessories. I would suggest trying a scarf, statement necklace, earrings, tights, or a handbag! When wearing Sangria colored clothing you can accessorize with either silver or gold jewelry. This color is rich and perfect for fall. I dare you to give Sangria a fashion sip!
