Wear to Work: Dress Like A Lady

Here is another dress that I bought on my shopping spree to Marshalls a few months back. Has a retro feel reminds me of something a house wife from the 50’s would wear.

I’m seeing a lot of the fit and flare trend in stores, Target had a few that I featured in my last post. Reasonably priced and very classic looking. This style is very versatile and flatters most body types. Cinch the waist with a skinny belt and add a statement necklace, you are ready for a special occasion.

Throw on a cardigan, embellished flats and a set of pearls and off to work you go. Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn with a top knot and Red Lips- So Hollywood πŸ™‚

Be Bold: Wear Saturated Color

There isn’t a shade of blue I don’t like, as you will see over time I have a lot of it. When shopping I try to broaden my color scheme with pinks and purples but always end up in the blue/green section.

So what’s a girl to do that has a closet dedicated to a single color? Pull out the color wheel. In my last post I admitted my fear of wearing too many colors at the same time, I also vowed to live dangerously this year. That’s right folks I looked to the secondary colors to find a match to my Cobalt Blue sweater………Orange! Yikes! For me this is huge! Pairing two very unlike colors together is insanity! OK I’m being really dramatic it’s not that crazy, the pairing was beautiful and bold. Complimentary colors, who would have thought haha.

I love color, I don’t want you to think that I am a plain jane who doesn’t wear color, I do. My problem is cordinating the colors together, I’m too matchy. If I wear hot pink pants, my top should have the same hot pink somewhere in the pattern or I get lazy and just pair a bold color with black or white. I’m going to break free from my colorfashionphobia!

What do you think about the color scheme Orange and Blue? Do you have any fashion hang ups, I’d love to hear them!

Maxx Style: In the Dressing Room

Happy Easter! The Easter Bunny hid eggs all over the house (plastic eggs) I think ALL the eggs were found…. I really should learn to count them prior to hiding them, oh well maybe next year!

I remember as a kid shopping for an Easter Dress was a big deal, I even think I rocked an Easter Bonnet once or twice. (I’ll look for pics to prove it) Well as I got older my Easter attire became more casual typically consists of jeans and a sweater, very simple and plain. I live on the East Coast and the weather is tricky this time of the year it could snow or it could be 60’s degrees.

The forecast is mid 50’s some sun, with a 60% chance of rain……Do I sound like a weather girl or what?! No worries I won’t quit my day job I have a shopping addiction to pay for. Anyway, this year I went shopping for an Easter dress. Here are my finds:

Fab Found at Marshalls; Emerald Pop

The 2013 Pantone Color of the year is Emerald, I was lucky enough to find this Cynthia Rowley dress and Nine West Pumps at Marshalls this weekend! SCORE!! Marshalls and TJ Maxx are my favorite stores, there is some work involved when shopping here patience is needed, going through rack upon rack………. But the end result can be Spectacular. I find it theraputic if I actually have the time to spend wandering from department to department, does that make me weird? Not at all, some people do yoga I spend 2 hours at Marshalls. To each his own πŸ˜‰

The dress is versatile I can wear it to work with a blazer or cardigan and wear the dress solo for a night out! And the Shoes are super cute. I bought a few other things during my spree, can’t wait to share them.
