Something Old, Something New

Paulette's Closet "No Looking Back" Fashion Show

You guys I have been doing the unexpected - modeling.  Well now that I think about it being having been a style blogger for nearly 5 years, and having my pictures taken daily and posted on this platform is a lot like being a model.  I don't know why I always place so much emphasis on not being a model, but this was such a fun experience that I will definitely do this again.  I mean, life is about living limitless, right?!?

Toward the end of the year I was asked by my dear friend, Amanda, to model in her fashion show.  She is the proud proprietress of Paulette's Closet, a vintage boutique located in Edge Alley, all of these wonderful pieces can be found in store.  So do me a big favor and stop by and play dress, I guarantee you won't leave empty handed.

Do You See this COAT

Happy start of the week guys, I hope you all are feeling as excited and motivated as I am to round out the last month of year.  I am trying my hardest to be consistent, and stay on my blogging schedule.  Oh and I want to encourage you guys to please subscribe to the blog so that you will be notified whenever I post, and receive our weekly newsletter of what's happening with SOSNU.

Now that all of that is out of the way, let's get to my outfits and this COAT.  I purchased this coat while in Dallas.  My bestie and I were doing what we do best, looking for the best thrift finds in the city when we came across this beauty.  Sadly, I don't remember much about the charity shop; however, I do recall gathering this coat from the discount table though.  Discount as $1.00.  $1 USD.  I couldn't believe my luck.  There was no question in my mind that this baby was coming home with me.  I also snagged a cute little blazer that I hope to feature soon.

So Long Summer, But First.....

On the blog today I am taking a few of my summer favorites out for a final spin.  I am not a big straw bag carrying girl, but this little cutie stole my heart.  I honestly think this bag is tolerable for me because it's the perfect compact size, and it's not entirely straw.  Straw bags were very big this summer thanks to the all coveted cult gaia bamboo handbag.  Literally every influencer across the globe were on Instagram posing with the cult gaia handbag.

Next up, I wanted to introduce my vintage robe to the blog.  The kids nowadays call them kimonos, but this baby is a robe.  I paired my robe and straw bag with a basic white cami and straight leg jeans.  I kept the outfit very simple.  The light blue robe has amazing details, large white magnolias trimmed with sequins.  It's also lightweight, and perfect for layering.  I would encourage you all to invest in a robe or kimono to layer in when transitioning through the seasons.
