First I want to start with accessories, as all of the above items can be paired with the items below. I pick this pair of shoes that I love to sort of show how I would mix and match in order to find the most chances possible to wear them. I chose burgundy and brown jewelry and one of my favorite Par fums Ralph Lauren's Romance. The other items, picture frame, candle and trinket box are just a few items on my dressing table. Let's start with this jean skirt, I ordered it from Newport News. I guess what I really liked about was the Nautical look. It's a long skirt almost to the ankle. The two front pockets and buttons added interest to me. I could picture it casual or dress it up with the blouse below. I love the delicate look of this blouse, probably because of the fabric rose which leans to not having to wear a necklace. I have to wear a light weight Cami, because of it's sheerness. See how it softens and dresses up this skirt And the burgundy accessories brings it back from dainty to bold. Below I will pair this white blouse with a suit of mine. Now this is a suit that I love, it's by apostrophe', I bought it a couple of years ago at Sears. I'm often drawn to clothing that is considered timeless. Here I use the white blouse and burgundy accessories, the rose on the blouse keeps me from having to wear a necklace but, I use the burgundy earrings and shoes. The shoes I had two years before a wore them. I remember when I saw them at Shoe Dept, they were the only pair left and they were my size. I tried them on and the comfort blew me away. They were mark 39.99 and I could not walk away though I could think of nothing I had to wear them with. After watching What Not To Wear I found that you can pair up just about anything but, I pretty much stick with the basics. This is another blouse by sunny leigh, I use with the grey suit, I love the way it shimmers and the design at the bottom of the sleeves. It's uses a silky tie that goes through the cuffs, I could possibly use cuff links it I found some suitable for women. LOL!!! My camera does not give the color it's justice. Here it's shown with the grey suit, here I'm able to accessorize with a necklace Here I'm pairing the blouse with a brown pant. I love brown. I feel I can get away with this because of this brown and burgundy bracelet that I paid 3.99 for. The earrings shown I paid 1.99. I have brown earrings in the first picture above with the accessories but, I don't know why I didn't think to put them in this pic also but they too were a whopping 1.99 at Simply Fashions. Here's a close-up of the shoe, yes they are as soft as they look! Last but not least, another Cato purse. Not designer but a cute 14.99, perfect for the burgundy and brown outfit. This concludes my picks for this Fashion Friday, hope you enjoyed. Deb

Rebecca has Usher Syndrome Type 3, and has limited vision and hearing but will eventually lose both. This struck me as totally unimaginable and my heart broke reading about it.

I believe that prayer changes things please join me in praying for Rebecca and others with Usher Syndrome each time you visit my blog. Deb
I was born in Birmingham Alabama, it’s home to me, I’ve spent all of my life here. As a matter of fact 98% of my family lives here. What’s good about that? There are no problems getting together for what ever the reason. I live with my husband and my youngest daughter Kandace, she’s 17. I’m a mother of four, two girls and twin boys. My husband is a father of three, all girls. Together we have nine grandchildren, six boys and three girls.
I lost my oldest daughter in 1996 by way of drunk driver, she was 20. This being the lowest point in my life, Jesus never left me nor forsake me and sent to me His comforter. ”Thank You Jesus”. Deb
