So my second styling from Dia & Co. arrived.
I’m less than thrilled. Maybe it’s time to dump the stylist because it appears I know way more about my likes than they do.
Maybe that’s too harsh.
Let’s walk through it.
I dig the necklace, even though gold is not my preferred choice. Like the shape though so I’m keeping it.
Next up, a jean jacket that I actually did like. Soft and comfy but… I own 4 jean jackets. Do I need a fifth? I had to let it go. Plus, it was $98. That’s a bit pricy for me.
The floral blouse caught my eye, even though I don’t like blue. I liked the cut. Then I tried it on. Too tight through the ta-tas. Bummer.
I like maxi dresses and this one looked comfy. Unfortunately, it was too big under the arms, gaping material. Not attractive. Sent back.
Last item: ember skinny jeans. Too bad the same colored jeans were sent last month and I kept that pair. Sent these back.
Bottom line, after the styling fee was deducted, I have an $8 necklace.
I like the idea of letting someone choose my clothes, but I’m pretty disappointed in what I received this time.
Seeing all these hints of spring – and sunshine – have me searching out color in my wardrobe.
I bought this dress on clearance at Dollar General for $5. I like the varying shades of gray. In the summer, tights won’t be necessary but on a windy April day, I’m fine with the look. Tights are Cato brand.
The yellow cardigan is lightweight. Target, on sale for $7.99.
Paired this look off with a pair of gray flats. Look out, world!
Pastels. Sometimes I like them. Sometimes I don’t.
With this outfit, I do.
Skirt is from Cato. Clearance rack for $9.99.
Paired with with a yellow T from Target. Not on clearance but on sale for $5. Perfect.
The lilac cardigan is from Christopher and Banks. Originally priced at $50, I picked this up for $19.
This is one of my favorite dresses. Found it on ThredUp for $12.99.
Paired it with one of my favorite cardigans from Cato. Seriously, I bought it nearly 10 years ago but it’s just comfortable. Price: $12.99 clearance.
Accessories: for a color pop, a bold statement necklace from Cato clearance for 1.99.
Boots are QVC clearance.
I feel like a million bucks!
No print on my clothing. We print our weeklies on Wednesday and let’s just say that white isn’t a good color in the print shop. Plus, it’s a fairly casual day as we gear up for the next week
So, I picked a pair of gray skinny jeans from Dia & Company. I recently signed up for the service and received the first shipment of clothing. This was the only item I kept. Granted, these were pricey – $65 – and after the $20 styling fee was deducted I paid $45. I don’t mind – this time – because they are comfy and fit great. Normally I wouldn’t dream of paying that much for a pair of jeans.
The top is from Gordman’s, who filed or bankruptcy so I will have to head there to find a bunch of bargains. Price: $11.99.
OK, so spring doesn’t officially begin until Monday, and it snowed Monday and Tuesday, but it feels like I’m caught in between two seasons.
Tuesday is deadline day. No interviews. Not a lot of time out of the office. So I wanted something semi-warm and comfy.
I settled on a pair of Cato jeans, added a cornflower blue cami and topped it was a beige lightweight sweater. The most expensive part of the outfit: the jeans. $26.99. Totally worth it. So comfy.
Cami cost $6.99 on clearance. Sweater is several years old but cost $11.99 on clearance.
After a few days pushing toward 60, winter has returned to Nebraska. Wind chill: -2. Boo.
I’ll need something warm to wear today, but I also have meetings to cover so I need to be dressed up.
I settled on this outfit.
The black skirt has leather accents on the pickets and hem. It’s from Cato. Original price: $24.99. I found it on clearance for $11.99. Bargain.
The black and white striped turtleneck is sleeveless so it will work almost any season, especially if paired with a cardigan. Again, Cato. Original price: $15.99. Clearance rack buy for $6.99.
I’m pairing it with a burgandy cardigan that’s from WalMart. Honestly, it’s 10 years old but one of my favorites.
I added a pair of cable knit tights from Lane Bryant. I like them EXCEPT the cable knit doesn’t extend to the waistband. Instead it has a “control top,” like pantyhose. Clearance price: $8.99.
Necklace is from Cato.
Braving the weather now. Brr.
