Savers Holiday Fashion Show

Eight beautiful women and one handsome man took to the runway at Summerlin Savers, vying for the title of…

hmm, I actually forgot what the trophy said. Oh well! The title doesn’t matter, what does matter is the fashion!!

Head to toe : $44.00

Best find : it’s a tie

Cole Haan shoes $20.00

Chico’s wrap

Side note : Kenna is one of the original people I styled when I had my thrift styling business THRIFT ME OVER. At that time, she flew to ABQ, NM and had me style her and a friend. After seeing my post about Savers first fashion show back in August, she decided to drive in from CA with her two daughters and walk the runway!

Yes, I styled her for the show.

It took three hours.

Hey, we were busy talking and getting distracted by all the brand new (with tags) Chico’s clothing that was in the store. Seriously, it was amazing how much was there.

BTW : this look is totally out of her comfort zone but she loved it!

Isn’t that right, Kenna…

Kenna???

😉

 

Contestant #5

Machele

Machele

Head to toe : $46.00

Best find : Stuart Weitzman sandals  for only $10!!

These retailed new for around $600 and I found this exact pair selling online at therealreal for $75.00. Savers had them marked at $16.99 but shoes were 40% off so…

 

Machele is Kenna’s daughter and reluctantly agreed to be a model.

Yes, I styled her for the show, too. I put this look together in ten minutes.

Contestant #6

Head to toe : $55.00

Best find : it’s a tie

INC jacket $25

Gold turtleneck (with the $58 SteinMart tag still on it) $12.99

Phyllis is the Editor of scsliving.com, an online newsletter about Sun City Summerlin.

Her outfit is a perfect example of the importance of having a statement coat. When you live in a cold climate, your coat is sometimes all that people ever see of your outfit.

Pop of Color

Happy Friday!

I’m super excited about this weekend. On Sunday, my baby turns 21!!!

#HowDidThatHappen

All of that has nothing to do with my outfit but I just wanted to share the news…

that I’m officially old.

😉

Anyhow, I’m actually super proud of myself with today’s look.

2017-12-01 12.34.19

Any guesses why???

#JustLookAtTheTitleOfTodaysPost

😉

The star of the show is really this H&M jacket I scored at the thrift.

 

It was a bit pricey at $7.99 but I saw a similar style in stores now, selling for $90.00.

I guess eight bucks ain’t that bad now, is it.

Lasstokki Sheet Masks

*I was gifted this product to review, however all opinions are my own*

2017-11-28 13.02.35

If you are a lover of sheet masks and all things K-Beauty then these new cream sheet masks from Lasstokki are for you!

At less than $1.00 a mask (which is unheard of) these sheet masks are as good a quality as those that I have purchased at $8.00 each!

#ImAsShookAsYouAre

For $10.99 you receive a total of 12 masks that target different concerns.

2017-11-30 13.38.54

Top row : Moisture   Bottom row : Nutrition

 

2017-11-30 13.37.33

Top row : Elasticity   Bottom row : Brightening

 

I couldn’t decide which one to try first, so I left it up to social media to decide for me!

2017-11-29 15.46.15

And the winner is…

2017-11-30 12.41.43

The Lemon was for Brightening and I was excited to try it. I feel as I get older, my skin gets more dull.

#DoYouAllFeelThatWayToo

Check out this mask.

It is comprised of not one, not two but THREE layers!

2017-12-01 20.40.48

Did you notice how moist it is?!!

Miss Oreo happened to stop by the bathroom when I was testing out this product.

2017-12-01 20.40.07

Check out the look on her face when she spotted me with the mask on.

2017-12-01 20.40.11

#CaptionThisPlease

😉

These cream masks are some of the most (if not the most) moisture filled masks I have ever tried!

There was so much still left in the package, that I squeezed it out and used it to moisturize my hands!

2017-12-01 21.03.54

2017-12-01 21.04.01

See!!!

I highly recommend these Lasstokki cream sheet masks. The value and quality is unbeatable.

OMG! This just in!

Amazon is running a 30% off Launch Special!

(Some restrictions apply)

That makes each mask less than 65 cents!!

Better get yours before they are all gone!

Ouch

As you all know, two weeks ago I turned 56…

2017-11-04 11.57.01

and I immediately started falling apart.

 

#DramaQueen

 

That’s why today’s look is all black.

2017-11-10 10.03.08

 

It features this waffle knit tunic top that didn’t have a label.

2017-11-10 10.04.13

 

Now, I normally don’t buy anything without a label, but we all know how I love black so…

2017-11-10 10.03.19

I made the exception for this $4.79 top.

But seriously folks,

I did start falling apart.

I stubbed/jammed/broke my toe!

It’s All About the Jacket

This Impulse of California jacket ($4.74) has a lot to say.

#ToldYa

 

So, keeping things pretty neutral underneath it, seemed the way to go.

2017-11-05 11.51.53

2017-11-05 11.51.57

 

Wow, I just realized that everything I have on (minus the shoes) is thrifted.

2017-11-05 11.51.47

Would you have guessed that?

 

Purple Pants

I REALLY pushed myself out of my comfort zone when I purchased these purple pants!

2017-10-28 12.09.58

I don’t know if you have ever noticed, but I rarely purchase pants at the thrift. But for $2.69, I thought I would give these Worthington (JCP) purple pants a try.

 

2017-10-28 12.09.48

Of course I had no idea how to style them…

they’re PURPLE!!

Luckily, my MIL had given me this embroidered denim jacket (totally on trend right now) that had been sitting in the back of her closet, neglected.

2017-10-28 12.08.37

 

I know my MIL did not pay $55 for it.

The jacket kinda/sorta helped pull the look together, but not really.

 

2017-10-28 12.08.55

Would love to hear your styling suggestions for these pants!

#PleaseAndThankYou

Come on Eileen

I wore this Eileen Fisher vest out and about the other day and felt like Wonder Woman.

#NotReally

But my pose looks kind of Super Hero-ish.

#DontYouThink

2017-10-29 11.04.45

I AM a super hero when it comes to bargain shopping, there is no doubt in my mind about that!

 

How much do you think I paid for this super soft and stylish vest?

2017-10-29 11.05.07

2017-10-29 11.05.14

If you guessed $2.99, give yourself a pat on the back!

 

I really like the neutral palette I have going on in this look.

I added a teeny bit of color to it, with this scarf I scored at an estate sale.

2017-10-29 11.05.54

 

It is really quite beautiful when unfolded.
