Class-A

sex sells I get it. but is it really necessary to expose all your assets!!

in the 1950’s, christian dior set the bar for ultra-femininity with his full skirt and cinched waist silhouette. call me old fashion but dressing in such a manner says much more about your character than the see-through pasty dresses i see now 😬

there’s nothing like seeing a woman in a classy dress or pant suit and if she pairs it with a hat ❀ she exudes pure confidence

today i’m sharing with you a few of my favorite fashion icons, both old & new…

Over All

i went out over the weekend and put on my best Black Friday deal….my overalls. as i was putting them on, it took me back to my childhood wearing my favorite OshKosh B’Gosh pair. or when I wore a pair with my dr martens freshman year to my first Oklahoma football game.
did you know Levi Strauss patented the first overall in 1873 and it was sold for $1.25!!

the fashion world began to sell one-piece overalls as high-quality leisure wear in the 1960s and 1970 and now they’re here again. there’s nothing like fashion coming back around to remind you 1. of how old you are πŸ™‚ and 2. coming back with a different flare.

here are some of my favorite looks starting with this handsome beau spotted on fashionfourmen.com

then there’s this fabulous vintage pair from freepeople.com

then there’s megan good in overall shorts she rocked today on 106&park while promoting anchorman. You can’t go wrong with shorts and tights this fall

over all….I think it’s a great look, you should try it next and don’t forget to smile πŸ™‚

Smile

if you know me, you know that i have an obsession with photography. the art and idea of capturing a moment in time that you will never experience again is priceless to me. and as i get older, i find myself looking through old photographs to put a smile on my face, to be immersed in that emotion; that particular frame that was being captured in this reel called my life.

so in this next frame on my reel I would like to share with you those things I relish in, the things that make my heart smile. be it a quote, photograph, or my favorite fashions…..I want you too to smile with me.
