~Fashion Fridays ~ From ~ Deb's Closet~


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

I love the jean outfit. Very cute. Especially the burgundy shoes.

Deb said...

Thanks Pat! I must use these post as a booklet to refer to because when I'm going someplace, I can never decide what to wear.

Thanks Jan! The jean skirt is from my closet and one of the things I'm not able to wear at this time. HA! LOL!!!! What a waste. Deb

Lovely items Deb, your choice of colors are very classy. You can put a photo together too! That first photo is magazine quality.

I love the denim skirt and white top combination, but my fave is the suit and the blouse look together!

The shoe is just my style.

You're a lady after my own heart as my mother always taught me to never buy something that I could only wear with one other thing, but instead, I should buy an article of clothing that went with several different things. Great examples! All of the outfits look great, but I especially love that pretty white shirt with the denim skirt, especially with all the pretty accessories. Those shoes are awesome!

Melissa Wertz said...

I nheed you to come dress me.

I love the blouse. Where did you get it? Did it run true to size?

Melissa Wertz said...

Oh, the glazing question you asked on my blog. I want to glaze my kitchen cabinets. There is also a tall blue cabinet I have in the kitchen that I have crackled. I want to put a glazing treatment on it to tone down the white in the crackling.

Deb said...

Thanks Raxx!

Melissa ~ I bought both blouses at Macy's, Brookwood Village Mall. I sort of shop when the seasons are changing and I caught them both on sale for about 15.00 each. They are both by sunny leigh.

Melissa Wertz said...

I am 15 minutes from the Galleria (used to be 5-10, but people decided that they like it out here and moved out here with us... traffic you know) and I could go right over to Macy's. But when I do go there, I never see anything like that. :-(
