Something Old, Something New

Monochrome Moment Mixing Prints and Patterns

Hey guys, I am here with my second post of this new year, and because you guys are so near and dear I wanted to make sure that you were aware of an organization and brand that's stellar. 

In this post, I am wearing a beautiful geometric patterned Tahari dress that I scoured during a sale at my local Dress for Success office.   I stopped by to make a donation, and to my surprise they were selling a few items, in an effort to raise money for clothing to accomendatewomen needing larger sizes.  I also brought this vintage pair of authentic Prada mules for a steal.  All of the pricing was more than reasonable.   The shoes had never been worn, and neither had the dress.  The striped shirt that I paired with my amazing dress is an oldie from Zara.  I love wearing black and white, and thought it would be a very interesting look if I mixed the prints and patterns.

I am also donning a beautiful pair of Berkshire hosiery, yes the Berkshire that our mom's love.  The brand has been around for over 100 years as the finest made, best fitting, and most fashion forward hosiery on the market.  Perfect for work, play, dress-up, bridal, daytime, evenings, weekends or holidays, the 2016-2017 Berkshire Collection features hundreds of individual looks that are available in regular, curvy and maternity options.  Visit them online at

ShopStyle Bloggers Give Back with Dress for Success - Power Outfit

Hey Lovelies!!! In this post, I share what it means to dress confidently especially when it come to tackling my career.  This post is a collaboration with Dress for Success and ShopStyle in an effort to promote and give to a very worthy cause.  I am apart of a group of style bloggers that are participating in ShopStyle's Bloggers Give Campaign.  During the short promotion period of December 8-9, 2015 I will be donating 10% of all sales from my blog to Dress for Success, and PopSugar, Inc. through ShopStyle will match 100% of my contribution (more info here).


Now that all of that is out of the way let's talk about how fabulous this light pink leather skirt from Zara is.  The skirt is a unique color and I just love the A line style of it.  Very flattering.  I paired my skirt with the cutest shrunken sweater.  I scored the sweater at the Goodwill for about $2.99.  It has a very 1960s inspired look, and I figured it would pair nicely with several pieces in my wardrobe.  Fun tights, and neutral shoes complete the look perfectly.

In this outfit I feel like I am Something Old, Something New - the brand.  I am wearing both thrifted (the sweater) and current (skirt form Zara) clothing, and I am completely confident in myself.  This look is my Power Outfit.  A power outfit isn't about wearing a black or navy suit; my power outfit is about being 100% unapologetically myself.  As a young child I was encouraged by my grandmother to explore style options, and to not be a conformist.  That piece of advice is ever-present in my world...and wardrobe.
