The anticipation of getting this box is just too fun for words.
For the first time I made a request for layering tops and lots of color. They totally delivered.
I really wanted to like the teal top because the color and silk fabric is delish - but pintucking in the front just does not work with my figure. Looks like a tent. Even tried a belt, but it's just too much fabric. Bummer.
The coral top is really fun. I typically don't like hi-low tops (as you can see in the second picture of this piece), but it is not overdone, and tried with a few jackets actually looked nice. Doesn't totally cover the bum, which is nice because I think mine is half way decent - don't hide your assets, right? I needed a little Hollywood Fashion tape to stop gaping in the front between the bottons, but it worked like a charm and that's a common need for me. And the gold button detail on the shoulders is really unique. Most likely keeping this.
The bracelet is actually 2 pieces and could be worn separate, so I really like that. A bit heavy, but it made them hang really nicely and the feel is really smooth. Most likely keeping these.
Um, hello multi print tank. Fell in love with you on first sight and you fit awesome. Love the versatility and all the color options with this one. Grey, navy, red, orange and even hot pink! Oh yeah, you are living here now.
The cardigan is really neat. One small button in the front allows it to pull together more like a jacket for a fitted look, and the flip out royal blue inside the navy is an awesome touch. I also photographed the unique striping in the back,. This cardi could be casual or dressy in an instant - LOVE that. Lovely piece. I suspect I will either keep it or Kathy will talk me out of it for herself tomorrow. LOL Too unique to not keep this one.
Also have to show you my new wall of washi.
Found these fun little washi boxes at Michaels on 60% clearance (yeah!). They include a dowel rod and metal tear strip, but I took those pieces out and just let the rolls sit inside (mostly because I had too many - blush).
Already more useful in that I can see what I have and that's how I get to using it... and obvious I need to get to that since this shows blatently that I have a serious washi addiction - YIKES!
Thats all for today folks. Thanks for stopping by!
(oh and yeah, still haven't found a house, for those that are wondering. It's making me a little mental... sigh)
