An Officer & A Gentle Woman: The Embellished Military Jacket Trend

I don’t know about you, but I have been noticing embellished military jackets everywhere. Some are embroidered some have appliques and some have both. Yes I know. I thought I am too old for this trend as well. Maybe I am, but I really don’t care. Neither should you. If it’s good enough for Valentino to sell for a few grand, it’s got to be good enough for me and you to wear. Besides, how many 25 year-olds can afford a $3,000 military jacket anyway? Not too many I assure you. Actually even if I can, I certainly do not want to spend that much on something so trendy and most likely only good for one season. I’d rather buy a new coat or a bag

I Dared To Bare – I Tried An Off-the-Shoulder Top and I Liked It

I know I have been pretty hard on the off-the shoulder top and here I am wearing one. Yes, I dared to go bare shouldered. My husband and I had to attend a Rio themed party and when I did some research I learned I should wear something bright. I don’t own anything with a bright pattern, so I was on the hunt. I was searches high and low and was striking out left and right. I had found a pineapple bag on clearance from Asos and figured I could wear a black dress like I always do a get an updo and stick a flower in it. Boring.
