Mixing prints is a great way to add creativity to an outfit. Yes, you can do it. Just make sure one print is larger than the other.

I have had this dress for like, forever, and have worn it a million times. Honestly, I was ready to give it away. It kept begging for another chance, so it got to be worn as a skirt. Yep, I'm keeping it.
As for the rest of my outfit...I got the Shirt off the clearance rack for about $6, the Jacket and Belt I paid $0 using rewards cards, and the sandals were a gift! I had been drooling over these sandals for awhile, and yes, hubby obviously took note. (He's good)! And now I can't stop staring at my feet!

 I am so in love with dresses for the summer season. They are easy, simple, and beautiful.


Bold and Playful

Karen rocked this outfit last weekend for a girl's night out. She looks fabulous in her black dress, denim jacket, and bright, fun shoes.

Adding details like her silver belt, cocktail ring, and longer earrings makes it a standout outfit.

Trouser Jeans

Wondering whether to wear dress pants or jeans for a certain occasion? Trouser Jeans are a simple and almost always appropriate choice.

Find Trouser Jeans that fit you well (with a classic leg line), they will not go out of style! These have been in my closet for about 4 years.

Flower Child

I just got my hair colored red and I love how it looks with this outfit. I love the black with the camel and the white. Right now I am so in love with my red hair!

 Leave it to me to do a crazy color, first blue now red. What next? Any suggestions?


Sparkle for a rainy day

Sequins somehow seem to make a rainy day brighter and better.

Rock Your Monday!


$2.00 Dresses are Great!

Marilyn is ready for a girl's night out in her $2.00 dress she picked up at a garage sale! How cute is that thing?! I wish I would have been there because then it would have been mine, all mine, I tell you!

Marilyn got this jacket as a gift from one of her lovely co-workers (JC Penny), Steve Madden shoes off the clearance rack for about $20, and her Handbag from Homespun Treasures (which is a local store you really need to check out if you live in the area).

Happy Sunday Everyone!

STOP!! In the name of love...

 I wanted to do something a little less "sexy" with this dress for daytime since it is really body hugging.
 I opted for a long black sweater with a black belt so I still get the definition at the waist without it being so nightime sexy.

I love the black and gray with the bright red lips. Red & bright pink lips are really hot right now,
why not go bold?!



I had met with Shanna last week to assist in picking out new glasses. She shows up looking super cute, so of course I get her to pose for me (and you).

Shanna must love her white crops as much as I love mine! And, don't you love her sandals she picked up at Marshalls for $2.99!

I like all the neutrals with the bright pop of color in her handbag. Choosing a handbag in a color that you don't usually wear will add interest and never clash with your outfit.

Thanks Shanna, you are gorgeous!


Blonde Bombshell

This is the lovely and beautiful Jessica. I did her makeup for prom a couple weeks ago.

I wanted to give her somewhat of a "light" Marilyn Monroe look to match her blonde updo done by Stacey at Salon Sky.

We chose to give her glowing skin, a light smokey eye, lots of mascara, and bold red lips.

Thanks for posing for me! - Hugs, Rhoda

Pencil Me In

Karen looks fabulous, fun and professional in her pencil skirt, which shows off her hourglass figure. Keeping her skirt right below the knee is flattering and very professional. Depending on your job, will depend on the length of your skirt. Right above the knee to right below the knee is universally flattering.

Skirt and Cardigan - Lane Bryant, Ruffled Top - Forever 21

Adding bright colors to her outfit reflect Karen's personality. Her ruffled top is very comfortable and totally on trend. Ruffles are everywhere this spring!


Two of my favorite things...

A classic black jacket and white jeans...

These are two items you can literally wear with everything!

Patterned Jeans Day

 I've been struggling with what to wear with these patterned jeans and today I decided to do a simple graphic tee and my military jacket. I've also done these jeans with just a simple long black button-up.

 Mail Day!
