Twril Twril Twriling

Ring: Gift from Hubby
Earrings, Purse, and Belt: Thrifted
Leather cuff: Tx Ren Fest
Dress: Macy's (clearance)
Boots: Grandmother's

I spied this dress at Macy's back in the Summer.  I was VERY tempted to pay full price for it that day due to the ah-mazing full, full skirt, but I resisted.  Fast forward to this Fall and I happened to remember it and went to see if it had made it to the clearance rack.  It had!  For 70% off, Woohoo!!!  No matter that it was meant to be a Summer dress, the colors are perfect and cotton works great for our not always cool Texas Fall weather.

Well, I'm back to having Red bangs again.  I feel like I've gone to my "natural" hair color. :o) The night I put in the Red I dreamed I colored my bangs Purple.  So I guess that's next!

I Wear My Grandma's Clothes

Sunglasses: Grandmother's
Blouse: Grandmother's
Denim Skirt: Banana Republic (clearance, old)
Earrings and Ring: Gifts from Hubby
Watch: TJMaxx
Zebra Wedges: Dillard's (clearance)

On Labor Day Grandpa invited the daughters and granddaughters to come up and go through Grandma's clothes.  It has been three years since her passing.  It was still hard, but we were all happy to get to take a little bit of her home.  My Grandmother is my style icon forever and always!  She did some modeling when she was young and always dressed and walked like she had just stepped off of a photo shoot.  I am picturing her right now with a golden yellow silk scarf wrapped around her dark curled hair and draping off her shoulders, it was Easter Sunday.  That is my Grandma Janell.  Her closet was always my favorite room in her house.  I would sit on the floor and look at all the designer clothes and just dream.  When I arrived on Labor Day, I hurried up to her closet to sit and dream one last time before anyone else came upstairs.


PS: If you're curious about my dazzling was my birthday present from Hubby!!!  I'm still flabbergasted!

End of Summer

Vintage Silk Scarf: Thrifted
Belt: Thrifted
Orange Top: JCPenny's (clearance)
Skirt: Refashioned from a thrifted vintage dress
Loafers: Thrifted

I totally forgot to post this outfit several Sundays back!  It's that time of year when I want to wear Fall colors and layers, but they feel all wrong when I step outside in the heat.  So, Orange and Brown and a light skirt help get me through this last bit while Summer hangs on.
