A Girlfriend Blogger Collab: Playsuits with Sheela

girlfriend blogger

At one time I had so many different collaborations going on with different girlfriend bloggers around the world. Then, for various reasons they all ended…. But now, I bring you a reunion with my very best girlfriend blogger: Sheela! Sheela is the one who got The Fab 40s started. She’s the one I can count on to text with morning or night–never in the middle of the day because one of us would be sleeping. Sheela lives in Houston. Sheela is also one of the strongest women I know, having life throw her different challenges along the way, but always overcoming them and always cheerleading other women on through their own life’s path. There have been many an occasion when I’ve wanted to give up blogging or Instagram, but Sheela always grounds and centers me. She reminds me to bring back the joy of why I blog: a passion for fashion and a love of sharing my stories. These two simple characteristics brought us together to create a strong bond. I’m so happy to have Sheela back on Kremb de la Kremb again; it had been to long.

Here the two of us styling up our playsuits. We both live in climates that allow us to carry our summer rompers on into fall. I just wish we were able to pose side by side. As of yet, we have not met in person; however I do trust that one day we will….

The way Sheela wears her clothing is exactly how she is as a friend:

Sheela is fierce AND fearless!

Sheela is whimsical and romantic!

Sheela is loving and loyal!

This was the romper that I wore all summer: it became my uniform for any summer event or get together. It had already been stored away for next summer, but I pulled it out and attempted a fall styling. I simply added a layer with the sleeveless denim and some funk with Western styled booties. Also, I discarded the belt it came with and added a touch of turquoise any which way I could: belt, jewellery, and even bag.

You can still see the aftermath of the terrible T10 we experienced in September. Trees still haven’t been cleared out from my neighborhood. Typhoon Hato really shook HK up!

Believe it or not, but in this pic, Gigi captured me sending a video message to Sheela via Instagram. There are so many ways to keep in touch with others these days, and not only catch up, but simply meet. Like I said, Sheela and I have never met in real life; for now we are virtual girlfriends, but girlfriends all the same!

Mwah Sheela! So happy to collaborating with you again!

Favorites from The Fab 40s

This was the first post. We styled the Pantone color of the year: marsala with denim.
(Look how short my hair was!)

On Kremb de la Kremb since March of 2015, every single last Monday of the month has been dedicated to a post from The Fab 40s. For two and half years there have been a group of us–in our 40s–coming together to share in our love of styling clothes. We would take turns choosing a theme. When it was our turn, we’d invite a fellow 40-something blogger. It will sound odd to read that we became friends, but we all did–in that virtual way that friends are made today in 2017. Some members came and left; it was natural for life’s events to take us in other directions. At present we’ve stopped posting, but I don’t thing The Fab 40s are done. We’ll be back…. Because I enjoyed these last Monday posts so much, I thought I’d highlight a favorite pic from each of The Fab 40s’ members. Enjoy!

The Fab 40s as Princesses

Sheela was our leader. She’s the one who created our concept and got us started. This was my most favorite styling of Sheela’s; the theme was princess, and she definitely played the Belle here in her beautiful rose gown. Ironically this is the one picture where we can’t see yet another pair of Sheela’s fabulous heels!

The Fab 40s in Marsala with Denim

I always felt a special bond with Dawn Lucy as she’s also a teacher. We were all extremely sad when she turned 50. But, we hope she started a Fab 50s group–that way we can join her in the upcoming years!

The Fab 40s in Faux Fur

One of my favorite color combos is when navy and black are paired perfectly together,
so this was an obvious pic of Jane. Her style is so urban chic–always!

The Fab 40s in Holiday Wear

Sequin joggers–yes please! Sequin joggers with a sequin blazer–double yes please.
This stunning combo was obviously my favorite look of Dixie’s.

The Fab 40s in Hats

All of us always looked forward to how Samantha would style the themes. She’s unique, and quirky,
but always classy and chic all at the same time. That’s how her personality is too. She’s a no
nonsense woman that I really look to for style inspiration as well as friendship. (By the way,
I gave her this skirt, and I love how she style it. I never even saw the blues
in the skirt before seeing her style it in this way!)

The Fab 40s in Our Favorite Colors

The best thing about getting to know Jennie was seeing both her style and blog evolve from post to post. She just kept getting better and better! I chose this picture of her in her favorite color. Again, she surprised me because I would have never guessed that these greens were her favorite color; I thought she was a pink or purple girl,
but that is probably because she wears that hair color so well!

The Fab 40s in Formal During the Day

Out of all The Fab 40s, I could always picture myself in whatever Diane wore. Take this outfit for example:
I want it all. I love pairing sequins with something casual like cutoffs and sneakers. Seriously though,
she was always my style sister all the way!

The Fab 40s as Villains

For one of our posts we had to style a villian. I love that Veronica chose an
Angelina Jolie character just like me. I also always appreciate how fierce Vero is!

The Fab 40s in All White

Not many woman can pull off a bodycon white dress, but we could always rely on feminine, voluptuous Mary to rock another hot dress. I’d love to go through Mary’s dress collection. It’s immense from what we could all see!

Do you already miss The Fab 40s like me?
Hopefully we can get back together real soon….

(I think next month, on the last Monday of October, I’ll go through and choose my favorite looks from collaborating with The Fab 40s.)

Wide Legged Pants: Ping Pong piece No.5

It’s the twentieth, so therefore Samantha, Anna and I plus Liyana are brining you a Ping Pong Piece. For August we are featuring wide legged pants. I must say right off the bat that I may have not taken the challenge all the way. I probably should have featured these wide leg pants: my flowered very full pants. But, when Samantha called this theme I instantly thougth of my wide legged white jeans (similarly styled here but with a bit more cheeky fun!), so there you have it. I also wanted to style the purchase I made back in June with Debbie again with my favorite slides–but this time in yellow. You hear me talk a lot about Krystal Bick from This Time Tomorrow. Folks not only is she one of the most stylish bloggers out there, but she is also one of the kindest. I keep seeing her in yellow satin slides paired with just about anything, like a neutral, that I had to be the copy catter that I am and give it a try. I have to say; I like it! Finally, you will be seeing a lot, I mean a TON, of this Hustle & Hide Co waist belt from my sister. I can’t not stop using it; it’s the best! Julie, I am publically thanking you here on the blog. I love it so much! Let’s see how the other PPPers did this month with real wide legged pants…

Samantha from Fake Fabulous


Sam’s picture came in first, and I was like, “Uh oh, I should have worn my really wide pants.” I mean look how cools these wide pants look under a dress! Sam is used to layering as exemplified here. I wear plenty of short hemlines and need to take note: pair pants underneath. It not only looks super chic but keeps things more modest. I love how casual cool Sam is here. I will be copying this look dear friend, I’ll be copying for sure. And it won’t be the first time!

Liyana from Affordorable.com


Samantha invited Liyana from Affordorable. I have been following Liyana from her travels to her life in Malaysia for a while now. Liyana is the “modest personal style blogger.” While she always maintains modesty, she also always remains totaly and effortlessly stylish. Like me, she loves her kicks. I always enjoy seeing what she puts together–like here, she’s got classy pinstriped wide legged pants, with a tailored long blazer, and fun print head scarf. Plus! She’s carrying a wonderful matching title. (This is something I like to occasionally add to my posts;) I really appreciate each and everyone of her outfits. Follow both her blog and her Instagram. This was the second pic to come in, and yet again, I was like, “I missed the boat on this one!”

Anna of Anna’s Island Style


Now Anna’s wide legged pants are very similar to the pants I should have styled for this Ping Pong Piece. Mine are floral like hers yet in different colors, and like her I usually wear mine with a plain colored top because the pants seak for themselves. It was with Anna’s mail with these pants, that I considered retaking my pictures for this collaboration, but as time would have it, just couldn’t get it together. I do love Anna’s pants. They’re so fun, and they’re a definite last flowing goodbye to summer with their fresh colors. Oh, I sure don’t want summer to end–I’m pretty sure my friends here may agree…

And me, Kremb de la Kremb


In this photo if you look up above in the lefthand corner you will see two windows of our apartment. I cropped the picture so you could see where we live. Often times if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see the view out my windows. Here, I’ve offered a pic of those two windows. I have to admit: I love living in Stanley, Hong Kong. It’s a wonderful, incredibly vibrant neighborhood of Hong Kong. 

Now… let’s take a look at the wide legged pants I should have featured as founded on my Instagram feed… 

Here’s my flower power styled with my navy pea coat.

And here’s another styling back when I had super long hair. I was also able to wear high heels back then! Goodness, I was quite thin too! Something to strive for….both the hair and physique!! The heels I don’t care so much about (although I still have these boots just in case!).

Cover-Up: Ping Pong Post No. 5

I was so happy when Anna called a cover-up for July’s Ping Pong Piece; it’s pretty much all you’ll find me in this summer out at Spirit Lake. Although my version of a cover-up is a little different: it’s a very old white fisherman sweater. It’s been a very breezy summer, so while I am in a suit, I need something to keep me a little bit warm–especially if we go out in the boat. To me a cover-up is usually white. I am not sure why, but I usually gravitate towards a white sweater or sweatshirt, white men’s shirt, or white, lacy number. Once you’ll see down below, a couple of my friends agree….

Anna from Anna’s Island Style

Anna mentioned her age somewhere recently–it might have been on an Instagram image…yep here it is! I don’t know why but I am surprised Anna is 59. She’s so lithe and fit and I’m going to go ahead and say it, very sexy in her bikini and Marilyn Monroe-esque dress. It’s such a fun and flirty cover-up, in white! And, the best part about it is she picked up this ASOS number for only $5 at a thrift shop. Score!!


Mary Murnane

Anna invited Mary Murnane this month. I’m always enamoured by how classy Mary is. She’s just the epitome of classy chic. Her style is so tailored and basically, well suited! It was this post of Mary’s when I fell in love with her. I’ve always wanted to just wear a blazer–with nothing underneath. I still haven’t been able to master this look but it is definitely on my sartorial bucket list. Here Mary surprised me: she’s still very class of course, but she’s also quite angelic, don’t you think!?

Samantha from Fake Fabulous

I can totally relate to Sam’s cover-up here. While yes, I am experiencing warmer weather out at Spirit Lake, the moment I hit the Pacific Coast, out come all my layers. Layers on a 20 degrees Celsius beach are absolutely necessary. Of course we can always count on Samantha to be bright and cheery in any circumstance. It’s just her way! And I love it!!

And me, Kremb de la Kremb

If by chance it gets hot enough for me to shed the sweater, I’ll then replace the upper cover-up with a bottom one, and it’s usually a pair of my cut-offs. Ever since I was a preteen heading to the lake with my family, I’ve always maintained that something should be covered–either my top half or my bottom half. It’s been my suit wearing habit for as long as I can remember.

What’s your favorite type of cover-up?

A Ginham Top–Shopping with Debbie


Debbie, from Fashion Fairy Dust, and I have been shopping again! This time I let her know that I’d been wanting a black and white gingham top. So just like last month, we went to Instagram and sent direct messages back and forth of items we liked. It’s amazing all that we can do in the palm of our hands these days! Since I’m in the States for the summer we also were not limited to global shipping which meant we could shop at one of our (similar) all times faves: Targé!! It was kismet; the moment I sent her this pic, she agreed whole heartedly that it was the piece. What’s so amazing is how there are many subtle similarities with both of our stylings. See if you can find them….

Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust


The only thing that Debbie and I verbally agree on is the piece to buy. Then, after we’ve shot our looks we send out two pictures to one another. I’ve called Debbie my style sister before, and now there is evidence as to why: she paired the top with distressed denim and red just like me. I love the touch of red in her scarf and those cute cherry shoes. Plus that studded black belt–well, I’ve been looking for something similar! Plus her jeans are perfectly distressed. I could totally see myself wearing this exact outfit. Can’t you?

I met Debbie via Instagram. Follow her here: @fashionfairydust
and read her blog here: Fashion Fairy Dust.

Since I knew I also wanted to pair this top with red, I headed to my favorite thrift store of all time: Value Village on Boone in Spokane, Washington. I went into the store with the thought of either red jean cut offs or a red denim skirt cut off. Value Village did not fail me; I instantly found a pair of poppy red jeans in one of my favorite labels to cut off. If you are ever at a thrift store and you find a pair of Gloria Vanderbelt jeans, buy them! They make the perfect pair of cut offs. I’m not kidding. I have Gloria Vanderbelt cut off jean shorts and cut off hemmed jeans both in white. They are my favorite. She adds the perfect amount of stretch to her denim. I’d also like to note something special about the way I style this top: I’m not wearing tennis shoes!! I found a very comfortable black satin bow slides at Forever 21, and I am so excited that they work for me. (These cute slides also come in a pretty pale pink or a bold marigold yellow.) Finally, this kitschy bag is new to me as well. I just couldn’t resist it (nor the price) on Shein.

Would you like to go shopping with Debbie and me? Let us know.
Also, how would you style this black and white gingham top?

Cut Offs: Ping Pong Piece No. 4

With it being my turn to choose the Ping Pong Piece this June 20th, I am sure it comes as no surprise that I went with my summer (or pretty much year long) staple: cut offs! These particular cut offs are my absolute fave; meanwhile my husband (and one of my sisters) hates them. He can stand how big they are, but that’s what I love about these Wrangler, DIY, grandpa-like cut offs. They are so comfortable: the wash is perfect, there’s the proper amount of distressing, the leg holes are nice and wide, and the waist is a little big. Basically I feel like I’m in a pair of pajama bottoms when I wear these cut offs–granted I don’t care if it looks that way! I had to wear this tee for this month because summer has started, and yet I already don’t want it to end! I suppose this is very spoiled of me to say since I do get a 7 week break. Not everyone has that sort of summer break, but as a teacher, I’m going to embrace every single day I’ve got.

Ruth from My Little Nest

Since it was my month to choose the theme that means I also got to invite someone. I invited Ruth from My Little Nest–who has the most contagious smile ever! Ruth is also from Seattle, so I was pretty excited to invite someone from the PNW. For as much as I may complain about Instagram, I should not! I have made some pretty neat virtual friends, Ruth being one of them. She is always, so sweet, very sincere, and just a kind virtual friend. I am hoping I may get to meet her in real life this weekend when I’m in Seattle! She would be the first Insta friend I will meet. Aside from being a really nice person, Ruth also has amazing style. I often see what she’s wearing and think, “I’d wear that!” Maybe it’s a Pacific Northwest thing…. I mean look at those cut offs! They are RAD!! Thank you for joining us this month Ruth. If you want a super nice friend on Instagram, do follow @ruthyannie and make sure to start reading her blog too: My Little Nest.

Samantha from Fake Fabulous

I have a pair of white cut offs, so I’m not surprised to see Samantha in a pair. What does surprise me is the pairing with neutrals. Sam is usually so bold, so I was startled to see a more muted color palette this round. The great thing about this lady is she makes me think about doing new things with my own style. I would never pair my white cut offs with a nude, khaki sweater, but wow! It’s such a classy look. Thanks for giving me style inspo once again Sam!

Anna from Anna’s Island Style

Anna is also sporting some white cut offs…. from me! We brought back a bit of the Ping Pong Post this month as Anna was pushed a bit with cut offs as she didn’t own any. Well, I’ve got denim coming out my ears! Easily I was able to make her to pairs of cut offs: a pair of white denim cut off bermudas (worn and shown here) and cut off denim white skirt. Again, Anna proved that white cut offs look great with neutrals. I’m going to have to try this with both my white denim cut offs and my white denim cut off skirt. What would I do without all these amazing friends I’ve made virtually via blogging and Instagram!? Thank you for more style inspo Anna, and I think you look great in cut offs. I hope you wear them all summer long!

And me, Kremb de la Kremb

These pictures were taken the weekend before we came home for our summer. Near our home in Hong Kong we have a variety of beaches to choose from–it’s actually really awesome. All the public beaches have fire pits to barbecue on to, so this was our first and last barbecue for the 2016-2017 school year. It’s so fun to pack up a picnic of food and barbecue on the beach during the sunset hour. I almost lost the sun in these pics; it went down so fast! Luckily my stellar photographer got the pics!

Look at my buff photographer: she set her mind on abs during the month of June, and by golly she got some!!

Shopping with Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust

I’m a part of two really great collaborations each month: on the 20th I always post a Ping Pong Piece with Anna and Sam plus a guest blogger on a piece that is probably found in everyone’s closet. On the last Monday of every month, I also always post with The Fab 40s, six other 40 plus fashion bloggers and one guest. One of us chooses a theme, and we dress around with that in mind. For example I chose our last month’s post where we all wore our favorite colors, and I invited Catherine from Not Dressed As Lamb to join us.

I love both of these collaborations, yet I had been searching for one more. I’m a total shopper; I love to shop–both on the street, in the malls, amongst the markets and of course also online. In past cities where I’ve lived, I’ve always had a girlfriend to go shopping with. Here in Hong Kong, I have yet to find that gf. Meanwhile, I’ve been making many great friendships online with other like minded people–in fact that’s how the above two collaborations came about. I have met none of these women in real life, yet I feel close to them through our mutual interest. We all support one another. In terms of finding a shopping buddy, I knew it had to be with someone with whom I had a similar style: enter Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust. Debbie is a school teacher like me, but also, she has a deep love of style, clothing, and fashion. There are so many times when I see one of her outfits, and I think to myself: I would totally wear that. Debbie, like me is a shopper. When I mentioned this idea of online shopping together with her, she immediately said yes!

So in this post, here I am shopping with Debbie. We actually used the direct messaging service through Instagram. I’d screen shot some items; then she’d screen shot some items. In the end, we finally decided upon this Shein striped shirt. I’ve been working with Shein, and the graciously sent me this shirt for free. Meanwhile, Debbie’s never came–Shein warehouse issues…. (I think these warehouse issues have affected many of us!) So, I sent her this shirt, and it’s now hers–no sense in sending it back to Hong Kong! This collaboration has been in the works for quite some time, but I loved shopping with Debbie! I hope we do it again–what do you say Deb!?

Debbie from Fashion Fairy Dust

I wonder if Debbie intentionally styled this striped shirt under this plaid slip dress. I’ve already commented on this dress before telling her how much I loved it. I think it was with this dress where I told her I felt like we were style sisters. We’ve both got a bit of boho mixed in with funk. She’s also very sporty–see the sneakers! (I need to replace my Adidas sneaks actually–maybe these are the ones….) I love that she paired this top with red plaid. I also like that she took care of the unflattering flare of the top by simply covering it up. Debbie, I could totally see myself wearing this exact outfit! Do you want to go shopping with me again? I sure hope so!

I met Debbie via Instagram. Follow her here: @fashionfairydust
and read her blog here: Fashion Fairy Dust.

Me, Kremb de la Kremb


I went simple with black and white. These pictures were taken some time ago. I had just scored the pleather A-line skirt at one of HM’s crazy sales. I swear: do not shop at HM unless the item is on sale. So many scores!! I tried emulating the stripe with a little stripe sock and also matched the sheen of the skirt with my shiny black sneakers. With all this black and white, I felt I needed a little color so I opted for my Zara Girls fuschia snake crossover bag. This bag compliments the pink lippy too. My final touch was some stripey type black and white (with a little blue) statement earrings. I’m loving all the cool earrings out there right now. I can’t seem to hold back!

The Fab 40s and Our Favorite Colors

I love when The Fab 40s get together. We all have such different styles, yet we have a common bond in loving and sharing our own style. I have to admit something: the last couple of themes were difficult to wrap my head around–there’s nothing princessy nor villainous about me, so dressing those parts was challenging. With it being my month to choose the theme I resorted to something easy–all of our favorite colors. In fact I tried to predict everyone’s favorite colors but I was way off! For me, my favorite color has always been many shades of varying midnight blues. I can vividly remember that first jumbo box of Crayola crayons and using that beautiful almost sparkly navy blue called midnight blue. It was literally love at first sight! And it’s been my favorite color ever since!!

The Fab 40s Favorite Colors:

These were my predictions, yet I was all wrong:
Diane–I think a pale blue
Jennie–either pink of purple
Mary–I’m going to go with yellow
Sam–red, for sure
Sheela–a deep red rose color
Vero–black, for sure
and our guest, Catherine–I guess peach!!

Let’s get to the real deal on all these ladies…

Fashion on the 4th Floor


I was wrong with Diane, but I was close with the pales–her fave is a pale pink! Diane you are pretty in pink!

A Pocketful of Polka Dots


I was also very, very off with Jennie! She told me she barely owns any pink or purple. Maybe it’s her gorgeous hair that had me heading that way. Jennie’s favorite color is kelly green, and yes! I believe it. What a knockout dress!

Curly Byrdie Chirps


I was right! Mary’s is yellow! I just knew it, and Mary, I am so happy I was right with at least someone. You always–and this time is obviously included–rock the color yellow. It’s gorgeous on you.

Fake Fabulous

Now, here I was kind of right. Sam admitted to having too much red on the blog lately plus a hankering for wanting to try out pink. I think she’s done a smashing job with this beautiful color!

Sheela Writes


I almost said black and white for Sheela but instead went for a deep red–which she admitted was also in her fave trio. But when one can wear this color combo so well, why wouldn’t one!?

Cid Style File


Again, with Veronica I was correct with the guess, but she went with another color she also likes: a deep burgandy, wine color. (Not red though; she was very specific about this!!)

Not Dressed As Lamb


This month I am so pleased and actually very honored to have Catherine from Not Dressed as Lamb be our guest. Wow, if you, like me, are a 40 something blogger wanna be, then you know Catherine. She is our guru. And she is our kindest champion as well. I have been writing and consulting with Catherine about my blogging questions. both big and small, for at leas the last four years or so, and she has alway been so supportive with exhaustive answers to my queries. She has become one of those girlfriends I have yet to meet in person…..maybe one day. I am continually amazed by her; and I’m not the only one! Just this past month, Catherine won UK’s best over 40 fashion and beauty blogger! This is huge, and I am so proud of her. Catherine is so deserving of this role and award. Welcome to our monthly collab Catherine. I thought you were a peach–I was close with the beautiful pink. Thank you for joining us!!

And me, Kremb de la Kremb

And here I am in my favorite color in my favorite texture of this year: midnight blue velvet!


White Shirt: Ping Pong Piece No. 3


For one year, Anna, Samantha and myself sent items around the world for the Ping Pong Post that would happen on the 20th of each month. This year, we’ve made a list of items that most likely every woman has in their wardrobe, and we style it. Plus, we’ve added a new touch: we invite a fellow blogger to join us. This month, Samantha chose the very basic white shirt. We all have them. I mean I feel I can guarantee that every woman has a white button down shirt of some sort in her closet. The fun thing is a white shirt can take on so many different shapes and forms–as you will see in this Ping Pong Piece post. It’s our third round of choosing a piece, and Samantha invited Monica, aka Señora Allnut. Definitely, the white shirt can be styled in a variety of ways and comes is a multitude of styles.

Fake Fabulous


Samantha chose a sleeveless variation and one we can barely see, but Sam is an expert at layering as proven here. She needs to layer because where she lives is usually quite brisk–and I believe that may be an understatement. Do you notice how her white shirt is eyelet? Matching the dress? There’s texture galore, and I love all the other touches that add even more texture: the belt and shoes being my favorite.

Señora Allnut


Monica is a vibrant dresser, so styling a white shirt was actually a bit of a challenge for her. (Not shown in the picture here is the very vibrant red trench she had layered over this outfit.) Similar to Samantha, Monica is a bold print mixer: stripes, floral, and colorful beads. In my opinion her long white shirt serves as the perfect duster to this outfit pulling it all together.

Anna’s Island Style


I knew we could rely on Anna to wear the white shirt most of us have. It’s a tailored long sleeve button down. But, the cool thing that Anna has done here is funk up the basic with a vest and trouser in two quirky prints clashing together. Clash is the wrong word because this pairing totally works. I love the modern cowboy vibe she’s sporting. And those silver gun metal boots?! Want!!

And me, Kremb de la Kremb


I have so many white shirts. It’s actually ridiculous. I have the tailored one like Anna, the long duster like Monica, and I even have a sleeveless version like Samantha–although mine is in a linen/denim sort of fabric. Recently though, while I was snooping around Shein, I saw this long, tied version of a button down, white shirt. I felt I had to have it for my spring break trip to the Philippines. In my opinion it was going to make for the perfect travel shirt and beach coverup combined. Turns out I was right. I love this version of a white button down shirt.



This week I decided to try it out for work. I knew that my belly sometimes peeks out through the hole from the tie, but with some high waisted jeans, I took the risk. I love the idea of an all white outfit, so that’s exactly how I wore it–with white everything! Even though there are no bold colors to be found, I think wearing all white is in fact a bold feat. And, guess what?! I didn’t spill anything on myself all day long. Wow! Now that’s a record!!

What’s your favorite way to style the white shirt found in your closet?

The Fab 40s are Villains


Oh my! Who even like the villains? When Veronica called this theme for The Fab 40s this month I really wondered how I would style my outfit for this blogger collaboration. Then, I thought of one of my favorite movies: Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Both characters are actually the villains in a way. Plus they’re both the good guys in the end with a battlefield reconciliation (how did they live through that who knows!?). One of my favorite scenes is when Jane Smith is in the desert and John Smith interrupts her mission. I love it when later she figures out the intruder is her husband because of his after peeing leg shake. That’s hilarious to me and something only a wife would know. So here I am trying to emulate a very sultry yet hardcore killer while she’s lounging around in her desert hut waiting for her target. What do you think? Do I look like a killer? Hardly!! It was fun to attempt at any rate. Check out all the villains below:

Cid Style File


Veronica, who set the theme, also chose one of Angelina’s characters: Malificent! Also, Vero invited Jaye from Curvatude to join us this month.

Curvatude


Welcome Annalise Keating from How to Get Away with Murder to this month’s blogger collab! Oops, I mean welcome Jaye from Curvatude. Excellent styling Jaye!!

Fashion on the 4th Floor

Diane chose Professor Snape from the Harry Potter series because she can relate to his loyalty and love for Lily, Harry’s mother. Trust me, Diane is a very, very loyal friend!

A Pocketful of Polka Dots


Jennie is Bonnie Parker, circa 2017! Hmmm, makes me wonder how Clyde would look–cuz this Bonnie is a DOLL!

Fake Fabulous


This month Samantha is Viper… nemesis to the super-sexy Logan/Wolverine.

Sheela Writes


Sheela is Poison Ivy–with red locks and all. (I would like to borrow that dazzling dress please!)

And me, Kremb de la Kremb


Remember the scene with her legs kicked up? Well, I’m trying…minus the binoculars and lithe physique. Go Angelina go!!
