By Invitation!

Hi there...its our monthly "BIO" posts and since everyone is so tied up getting settled into a new season, getting kids back to school, etc.....we decided to make this an easy one for all of us. Its a fun theme and one that never gets old. Fashion. We were asked to choose one outfit from a current fall collection that we just love and one that falls short and explain why. This was easy....I love fall fashion so didn't have to look far to choose a favorite, in fact it was choosing just one that was the biggest challenge of all. But here are my two picks and why.....

Something I love. This is classic Gucci.  Where would I wear this? To a luncheon, or a business function. I would then break up the suit and wear the jacket with a pair of velvet black pants or even jeans and riding boots. The skirt could be dressed down with a chunky black sweater and tights and riding boots or dressed up with a pair of t-strap shoes and a black lacy blouse.

This really has everything I love. I love gray, love a tailored suit, the way this is a nod to "old fashioned" ladylike dressing and then there is the touch of leopard on the collar....brilliant! I love cools and warms mixed in and this is such a timeless classic.  Love the addition of the chic leather gloves and gorgeous t-strap shoes....perfection.  Thank you Gucci!

And I can see this gorgeous black Hermes crocodile kelly with it........hey, might as well go all the way! Come to mama.......

Take a look at other looks from this chic!

Here is my don't..I mean have you ever? What is this, a blinged out swifter? This is the most absurd pair of shoes  I have seen yet (and please if anyone has recently purchased these, forgive me).  Can you imagine walking into a school meeting with these babies on? I am having fun visualizing the looks of sheer horror that would be on my sons and husbands face if I dared to wear something like this, they would have me committed. And don't despair, because  for close to $1000.00 they are all yours..........and just think you can keep the kitchen floor spic and span while making your very own fashion statement:)

I am all for fashion representing who you are. It is such a subjective decision to make, what you wear and how you wear it. I do not judge or at least try not to (except when it's fun). But seriously if someone I knew wore those shoes up there, I would immediately think she is a confused woman, is conflicted by her cleaning duties but really wants to be a mythical goddess hence her bejeweled harem feeling shoes with dust mops at the Guess those are the ultimate "domestic goddess shoes". Thanks for stopping in and enjoy your day.
