You’re going to see a lot of sequins during this round of The Fab 40s. We are all wearing formal during the day. This is something I’m quite used to. Since I’m on a total sneaker/casual shoe kick, I try to figure out ways to dress up this look. In fact you can see me wearing my sneakers at Christmas with satin joggers and a sequins top, here with an off the shoulder DIY dress, or here with my sequin pants. I’m no stranger to this concept especially since I adore dressing up and miss my high heels so much. I guess you could say I really believe that “Life is a party; dress like it!” Therefore I’ve had to create a new style concept that will not be hindered by comfortable shoes. And now, I’ve got six other ladies to take style cues from. Just you wait and see. But first, here’s my take with my new and ever so comfortable flatform (read two inch high heel!) Teva sandals. (I’m waiting for my pair in white to arrive….)
Samantha from Fake Fabulous
Samantha, our pro pattern mixer, rocked her look in this elegant skirt paired with all things casual. I am realizing in my collection of skirts I am missing some polka dots! And I am sure Jennie is also coveting this piece. Sam, I love your gutties. (Did I get it right!?)
Vale of Fashion and Cookies
Wow! Vale from Fashion and Cookies is our guest this round. And WOW! She looks so fantastic. If I could pull this look off in the day time, I would be giving myself some high fives. Vale, is Italian–does that help explain? I highly recommend visiting her site; you will instantly get addicted to her chic style. Plus, she writes a bilingual blog in both Italian and English, so if you speak either of those languages, you’ll always understand!
Diane from Fashion on the 4th Floor
Ummmm, Diane, I’ll keep it simple and just say I’ll be copying this look. I love it. It’s summer time, and I now live in my cutoffs, so I especially adore and relate to this entire look. Can you send that top over when you’re done with it?!
Jennie from A Pocketful of Polka Dots
Jennie, it’s so fun to see your style evolving with each of our collaborative posts. You’re preppy self is turning a bit rocker? Do you agree!? I love it. You’re showing us all an edginess lately that I haven’t witnessed before. Also, I’m kicking myself: I should have bought those snake slip-ons that I saw ions ago. Super Jennie!
Mary of Curlybyrdie Chirps
Holy smokes Mary! And you’re opting for a fabulous skirt this time around. (Mary is usually our dress wearer.) Mary, you’ve probably heard this before, but your curves are to die for! I love this skirt, and it fits you amazingly. You look smashing Mary!
Sheela, I love your pants. I even have a similar pair! But I think yours are just a little fancier and way more cool with the jogger vibe going on. And Sheela, how, oh how do you manage in your heels? I am in awe, a little jealous, and just in complete awe how you can wear shoes as fabulous as you do!
And me, Kremb de la Kremb
For me, and my comfy shoe wearing ways, I’m letting my hemline creep up and up. And why not!? To avoid the muffin top, I’ve concealed it with a waistbag (fanny pack if you like!). To increase the look of a waist I side tied my tee OR I tied my bomber around my waist–two ways of cinching in a waist. And the shoes, well they feel like heels, so they add an instant pep to my step. I’m in love with these Teva flat forms and will be wearing them all summer long!
I got the thumbs up from my photographer!!
