Frothy

Hello Lovelies!

Believe it or not, my husband is the social butterfly in our family. I can do the party scene for a little while, but after a couple of hours, I start fantasizing about crawling into bed with a good book and a cup of hot tea. Last year, during the holiday season, we attended several social gatherings. On one Friday, we had three events to attend. The grand finale of the evening was dinner at a great jazz supper club. By the time we returned home, it was 3:00 in the morning. I was pooped and so was the outfit I wore.

This coming holiday season I found an adorable and albeit frothy number from the Lauren Conrad Collection at Kohl's. I normally shop Kohl's for my hubby, sons and lingerie. However, fellow blogger and entrepreneur, Myisha of Chic Glitter Gal told me she loved the Lauren Conrad Collection. So, I decided to take a peak at it. When I first spotted the skirt, I was attracted to the color, but it lacked in hanger appeal. But when I tried it on, I fell in love with it and decided it would be one of my go-to pieces for the holiday festivities. I love the color, the way it moves, and of course, the fact that it was super easy to style.

Today's Look: 
Skirt - Lauren Conrad Collection for Kohl's, Sandals - Stuart Weitzman(old), Jacket - Loft (old), Tshirt - Vince Camuto, Belt - Calvin Klein, Necklace - Loft, Ring belonged to my mother.



 
 
 
 

 


Have you ever passed on something because it didn't have much hanger appeal and later kicked yourself for not buying it. That has happened to me too many times. That is why I made the decision to try it on. As you can see, I had a great time being photographed in this skirt. I can tell it's going to be the life of the party {wink}

  2. Thank you Elle! I can honestly say this was one of my favorite pieces to style. It can go super dress, in between or casual. A great piece. I'm glad I got it!

  4. Squeeee!!! Ooooh, I love how you've styled this Glenda! And the photography is so cool. I think because I shop mostly thrift, clothing is often quite crowded on the racks. By the time I manage to get the garment out to view, I feel I've gone to so much effort, that I try it on regardless of how it looks on the hanger, LOL.

    1. Thats a good strategy Sue! I know what you mean about over crowded racks. This lesson has taught me to try it on regardless of how it looks on the hanger.

  7. I love that skirt and I've been VERY bad at passing based on hanger appeal or buying blindly because something DID look good on the hanger, but looked awful on me.

  17. You look absolutely gorgeous! That champagne color looks amazing on you and not to mention THOSE SHOES (I want to swipe them off your feet:)). PS Don't worry I am the EXACT same way, a glass of wine a good book and a hot bath sound like the best night ever to me.

  19. Had to click on your blog when I saw the pic over at Vodka Infused Lemonade's linky, I have such a weakness for frothy skirts! I'm looking for something to wear to a winter wedding, and this would be fab (although sadly I'm in London, so no Kohl's here!). I rarely pass things up on the hanger, I tend to like to imagine it and give it a chance - like don't judge a book by its cover? Don't judge a skirt by its hanger! x

  20. I am like you. I love a good party, but after a while I start longing for home and my bed, tee hee :-) I am usually not a big fan of maxy skirts, Glenda, but you make this one work!

  21. You are right. This skirt is so good. And why? Because you make it look good. It is perfect for your body. Also gorgeous sandals (again). Great styling with the jeans jacket. 10 out of 10 for this one.
