I’ve been thinking a lot about my mom lately. In fact, one month from today, it will be twenty years since she passed away.
So today, I decided to wear some of her jewelry that was passed down to me along with this red rose shirt I scored at H&M for 15% off because I donated a bag of clothes!
That’s right, H&M will give you a 15% off coupon when you donate a bag of clothing. The cashier must have liked me because she hooked me up with like, 4 or 5 coupons!
Shout out to my sister for telling me about this donation program!
For some reason, this shirt reminded me of my childhood.
I’m not sure why.
Hmm…it just dawned on me that my dad loves to grow roses. He even has a rose garden, still to this day.
The three strands of pearls? They all belonged to my mom. One of the strands is from her wedding day.
Since red is THE color of the season, I decided to go all in!
I do love these red Old Navy Rockstar jeans, but these shoes, that I paid $19.59 for from the Dillard’s Clearance center…I really, REALLY, don’t like!!
The brand is Gianni Bini, which is normally a really good brand, and the regular cost of these shoes were $79.99, so I thought I was getting a really good deal. NOT! They are the flimsiest shoes I have ever worn. Seriously, it’s like they are made out of cardboard. The fact that I really don’t like red shoes (I have no idea why) probably doesn’t help either.
How about we talk about this fab vintage white wicker handbag I scored!
This is an original Roger Van S bag from the 1960’s (if my research is correct)
This is an ad I found for a similar Roger Van S bag selling on Etsy for $30.00
I love researching items I find at the thrift. This husband and wife team started designing handbags in 1945 and won all kinds of fashion awards. They both passed away at the age of 90…him in 2007 and her in 2010.
I found this little gem at the GW on Ft. Apache/Flamingo for just $2.39.
I was pretty stoked when I came across this brand new with tags ($44.00 @ JCP) pajama top. The price was right, at just $4.24.
I had recently been inspired by a YouTube video showing seven different ways to style a pajama top.
I’ll share that video at the end of the post.
What I didn’t realize until after, is that I’m NOT showing you different ways to style a pajama top.
All I’m showing you are different shoes and accessories that kind of, sorta, changed the look from day to night.
Oh well, watch the video to see how it’s done…in the mean time here is how I changed up the look.
#1 is the super casual look
#2 is the dressy casual look
#3 is the night out look
I actually wore look #2 when I took my MIL to her callback for a commercial here in Vegas.
UPDATE : The location fell through on the day my MIL was supposed to shoot, so unfortunately she wasn’t in the commercial. No worries, though…as her agent, (Me) this is just the start of her career. Who knew 91 year olds were in such demand!
