Slip dresses are in style, comfortable, & even affordable, but would you wear one (outside the house)?
I've thought about a vest like this over the past couple years, very much a "play" item that I wouldn't want to spend much on. Since both of these vests are made primarily out of acrylic with a faux leather tie, why would you pay over a $100 more for one?
How often do you settle for something other than what you want? Here are several lesser priced items I've bought instead of the item I really wanted. But I'm equally happy having saved some money, so I think it's ok. What do you think?
One of the most important qualities in a Thanksgiving outfit, of course, is that you can eat plenty of food without feeling constricted. Another might be that you look warm & festive, possibly arrayed in fall colors.
There are those years when you wouldn't mind making a little statement on Thanksgiving...
This dress looks so easy to throw on, & I love the blue velvet ribbon & slit down the back.
For those of us who wear black & only black all the time--how 'bout a nice suede texture for Thanksgiving?
I didn't get to go to Zara in Madrid, but I did get to visit my first Zara store in Toronto last month. I hoped I might find a huge store with a giant sale area, but instead the store felt like a small, uncluttered boutique--not at all what I expected.
Have you been to a Zara?
10 crossover tops from Silence + Noise at Urban Outfitters ($19.99-$69)
Can you spot 10 differences between these two photos?
1. ottoman in second photo
2. price of top
3. hand on piano
4. day vs. night (the flash in second photo changes the darkness of the color of the wood floor)
5. background (door vs. fireplace)
6. size of the top--first top is bigger (rolled sleeves in first photo, pattern falls more toward the center in second top)
7. first top is from Zara; second top is from SheIn; first one sold out, second available.
8. outlet on the wall in first photo
9. leaning more in first photo
10. blue pattern reaches slightly higher in the second top & the pattern might be a bit more muted?
The truth is I've always loved the coordinated sets (known popularly as "co-ord"), even though I haven't seen them in years. I had one in the 90s--a knit skirt & top--so easy to get dressed in the morning! I know many of these show some midriff, which is a problem for most of us & not quite right for most occasions--but I'm just glad to see the sets come out because we'll find one that suits us. (P.S. We could always wear a tank underneath to hide the midriff.)
