With the “cold shoulder” being 2016’s summer fashion trend going into fall, it was only right I return from a sabbatical in the trendiest way possible.
This summer I got a chance to serve some of that “cold shoulder” or that “deep shoulder action” several times. Honestly, with all the heat we’ve been experiencing it was perfect. I really don’t do trends, per se, but this one is super cute & reminds me of the fashion during the 1950’s & 1960’s. Fashion really does repeat itself & I love it.
I didn’t do much shopping this summer to challenge myself even more to wear what I have using the “remix method”. Very successful I must say (patting myself on the back).
I wore this dress in Costa Rica while on vacation. Wow, this dress has been in my wardrobe since 2010 & worn several times. It was one of the first items I had ever purchased via Victoria’s Secret catalog; when I found out they sell more than just under garments.
This dress was a must have from Express that was purchased with a gift from the mister. You could only imagine my excitement when I realized he was listening to me that day we were perusing through the mall.
The white top is a gem that had been sitting in my closet since 2014 purchased from a designer I connected with at a fashion show. Designer, Norahs Khan posted this top on her Facebook page & I had to have it. Mind you, at the time it was purchased I had no clue where I’d wear it. How I was going to wear it was “in the bag”. With no events worthy enough to break out the top resulted in it sitting in my closet unworn for 2 years. The irony here is the day I finally wore the top I attended a fashion show where Norahs Khan’s fashion was being displayed & I had no idea. Imagine that!!
Here’s another beautiful top in my wardrobe made by Norahs Khan only worn once by me & once by Maxine, the mannequin…lol.
This top is brand new to my wardrobe purchased a week ago at Fab’rik in Buckhead, GA. The top was purchased with the fall in mind. I plan on wearing this one again during the cooler temperatures. Oh yeah, this was also a gift from the mister.
Needless to say, I’m definitely ready for fall & the opportunity to rock this top again.
Tidbit: The “cold shoulder” look can be enjoyed in the fall.
