Something Old, Something New Day 4

It's Thursday and this is Day 4 of my Something Old, Something New Challenge. Have you guys been enjoying my looks? It's really interesting how one new piece can breath life into old clothes. For today's look I decided to switch things up a bit. All of the looks thus far have been relatively dressy, so I wanted to give you a casual look.

I styled my Fashion to Figure peplum with FTF Released Hem jeans and to edge things up a bit, I added my fave FTF faux leather jacket from last year. To round out my look, I added my studded Shoe Dazzle sneakers and my favorite Cayetano Legacy necklace for a pop! Because I am hitting the road with this look, my outfit wouldn't be complete w/out my staple Henri Bendel wheelie and West 57th Satchel. I'm also blocking out my haters w/ FTF Sunnies.

Tomorrow will be the last day of looks w/ this fabulous peplum and then I'll round up the week on Saturday. What would you like to see me take on next? I'd love to know your thoughts. Until next time...

See you on the front row!

Something Old, Something New Day 3

Happy Hump Day! We are halfway through the week and officially at Day 3 of my Something Old, Something New challenge. One thing you may not know about me is that I spent almost all of my summers with my grandparents in the country. Because there was no cable, my days were spent running around outside barefoot in the grass and playing on acres of my families land w/ my cousins. The setting of this shoot reminded me so much of my childhood and is the little bit of country I promised you in yesterday's post.

When I was thinking of ways to style my Fashion to Figure peplum, I knew that my FAVORITE Shang Coleman Original skirt had to enter the equation. Whenever I put it on, I feel so pretty and so free. The neutral color of it pairs perfectly with the shirt, and I pulled the hydrangeas off of my desk for an extra layer of flavor. My gold Michael Kors watch and Kendra Scott ring round out my country glam look.

No matter what size you are or how old you are, you should always let your inner beauty shine through. I encourage all of you to be bold, be courageous and most of all, "Make the World Your Personal Runway"!

See you on the front row-

Something Old, Something New Day 2

Happy Tuesday! Today is all about color. I absolutely adore these fabulous chartreuse Lane Bryant pants. Believe it or not they are at least 3 years old. As soon as I ran across them in my closet, I knew they would be the perfect color pop for my Fashion to Figure Peplum. One thing a lot of people don't realize is that brights and neons are neutrals and can be style a variety of ways.

To round out my look, I had to pull out an oldie but goodie handbag that was a gift from my friends at Gregory Sylvia. I also added a fun pair of floral pumps I got last spring form Shoe Dazzle and added a fun statement necklace from Banana Republic. If you shop purposefully and take care of your pieces,  you will be surprised how many years of wear you actually get out of them. Invest in great accessories and quality basics and you will always be ready for anything life throws you way!

Stay tuned for tomorrow's look.  I'm rocking one of my fave old, custom pieces for a look that's a little be country and a whole lot of glam!

See you on the front row!

Something Old, Something New Day 1

This #SOSN look is all about having fun with patterns. I absolutely love creating unexpected color and pattern combinations. Although my "old"  Lane Bryant suit is plaid the color combo is very classic and neutral. It is the perfect foundation for my "new" floral Fashion to Figure peplum.

Because the background of my peplum shirt is similar to the cream of my suit, it allows the florals to be a subtle accent to the look.  I pulled the look together with a black skinny belt, black pumps and a black bag which makes this the perfect spring ensemble for work or church!

Stay tuned for tomorrow's look! It's all about a color pop!

See you on the front row!

Something Old, Something New

Happy Spring! As I was cleaning out my closet the other day, I found so many fun pieces that I had completely forgotten about. If you have been following me for a while, you already know that my style is a mix of classic pieces with a sprinkle of the season's must haves. The foundation to a great wardrobe is having those basics and being able to mix new, trendy pieces in with it.

While I was taking a look at all the pieces I found, I decided to challenge myself to mix some of my new items in with some of my old items and see how many looks I could come up with. Surprisingly, I was able to create 5 different looks by mixing old pieces from my closest with a new shirt I bought from Fashion to Figure. Hence the name "Something Old, Something New. Throughout the week I will be sharing these looks with you and hoping to inspire you with how to maximize your wardrobe and incorporate some new pieces, too!

The Secret Gardens Peplum is my inspiration for this week of looks! Stay tuned...
