Timeless Tips from a Fashionista

6 01 2013

Morning
I am a fashionista from the moment I step out of the shower when I don the classic, timeless turban. I particularly like the animal print. It goes with another classic, the fire-engine-red robe. It is belted at the waist to give the illusion of an hourglass silhouette. This look never goes out of style.

Noon
While baking at home, I find it most practical and fashion forward to stay in my nightgown. This attire is multipurpose and can also be used to clean your hands while cooking. The must-have red fuzzy socks go with most anything in your closet and is a staple in any wardrobe.

Evening
This is perhaps my sexiest look. The oversized retro tie-dye t-shirt also hide those holiday pounds. Tie it together with the exercise capris and you’ve got a look that will take you from daytime cleaning to that late afternoon yard work. Finish off this look with the red Crocs; another must for any fashionista (yes, I love to have a splash of red in my fashion palette)! Add a visor from a favorite bar and you will have the neighbors thinking the grass is indeed greener at your house. My sweetie says I never look sexier than when I’m doing yard work. I tell him the same thing whenever he has a vacuum cleaner in his hands. This attire is also good for painting, I find the paint splatters add that little devil-may-care attention to this look. Good for all seasons.

I’m still laughing! I think you’ve got every era covered! The 50’s chenille bathrobe, the 60’s apron, the 70’s tie die, the 80’s capri legging, the 90’s sock slippers, and the 00’s crocks!

It’s like looking in a mirror, I tell you!

So funny! I love a multi-purpose wardrobe, too!! Of course I’ve found that I can do all those things, bake, garden, clean the house, and never even get out of the robe. I save so much time needlessly changing clothes. I use my time wisely by playing on Facebook and checking my email forty times a day. But you are right that the neighbors would probably appreciate it if I put on real clothes. I’ll have to take that under advisement.

Chloe, it’s just the way we multi-task.

Oh my, Connie, you are quite the stylish woman! So funny I laughed out loud and woke my husband. Thanks for this great end to my day!

Only because you shared first, but I garden in red crocs, too. I also wear them to check the mail, because you want to look your best for that.

7 01 2013

Yes Ginger, they’re very good for checking the mail and bringing out the garbage.

Hilarious! I love that you took this assignment off in this direction!! It’s like the colliding worlds of Roseanne Barr and Eva Gabor from Green Acres—trailer chic! This one will keep me smiling all day long. Love love love it!

Glad I made you smile, I realize I have no problem looking foolish if I can get a laugh.

The photographer really captured your essence! So glad I am not alone. My kids hate it when I embarrass them with my wardrobe faux pas!

My sweetie took the pics. He kept saying, “are you sure you want me to take you looking like this?”

Fun! I have the same outfit for yardwork — complete with tie-dye t-shirt. Only my crocs are purple.

Oh. My. Gosh. You’re killing me over here. My 11 year old daughter just read over my shoulder and pointed out that I sport some of these same looks. Le Sigh. Oh the many faces of womanhood.

Yea…these photos were taken over the holidays. It’s what’s in my closet.

Hah! I’ve got the same hand-print patterned clothes too. Pants, sweats, you name it. And if I run to the post office after I finish, the people there who are in line with me give me the once-over. I know they are coveting my hand-print clothing line. SIlly fools don’t know how easy it is to get their own!

I have…on rare occasions…run an errand dressed in my sexy attire.

Then you really do have good taste!

Every chic woman needs a splash of color in her wardrobe.

If I’d known it was so easy to look like a superstar, I would’ve kept on my bathrobe a long time ago LOL. Too cute Connie!

Wow, you even shave your legs! I’ve been known to scare the children of the ‘hood with my gorilla legs who stop in to see what I’m up to in the yard with a rake or hoe in my hand!

HAHAHA! Yea, that reminds me maybe it’s time for a shave of the legs.

You are Rockin’ It! I love the designs and often copy them in various color patterns. Add some baby spit up to the chest area and we could be twins haha!
