My favorite dress

I bought this coral colored Calvin Klein dress last year and it's still my favorite dress. I lost weight a year ago and this was the first dress I bought in the size I wear now. I love the color and the retro flapper style and the fact that I bought it for quite a bit less than retail price.

The bracelet and one of the necklaces are from Premier Designs jewelry.
My friend hosted a party and these were on the clearance table. The bracelet has animal print beads and the necklace is glass beads in the same color tones. Because the bracelet has two layers, I wanted two layers in my necklace. So I added a wooden bead necklace. (This was my Grandmother's and it's from the Holy Land. I've had it since I was 16--I used to wear it with a Yellowstone National Park t-shirt.)

My shoes have a sort of snake-print pattern of brown and black. They are Aerosoles, so they are oh-so-comfortable, and they were at Ross for about $10.

Do you have a favorite article of clothing? Something that cheers you up and makes you feel fabulous every time you wear it?


  1. I love your dress! And the attention to detail that shows with your accessories :D My old fave was a black knit dress that was comfy and flattering, lost in one of many moves... on the hunt for a new one :D

  2. That's a great dress - I love the flapper touch.

    My favorite outfit is a brown leafy print wrap dress that shows off my waist (which I actually have now!). I even bought jewelry to go with it from a friend who sells Premier. It's the one thing I have that I feel put together in. Depending on the weather I sometimes wear it with a brown flyaway cardigan that that I love.

  3. I LOVE the flapper style to the dress. What a great find!!!

    I love Ross and have a TON of stuff in my closet from there, including some fantastic shoes. It can be totally hit or miss, but when it's a hit, it's Big Time!

    Nice to meet you through HH!

  4. i am LOVING coral this summer. peaches and corals make me look more tan than i am :). it looks great on you! thanks for sharing your style.

  5. The color coral is so flattering and uplifting! I've been really working out lately riding my bike and at gym getting back muscles and seeing results in my arms, so I've been wearing fun, sexy backless dresses, mostly by Republic, to show off all this hard work! LOL.

  6. That color looks so good on you! The few Calvin Klein pieces I have are cut very well, you've actually just reminded me that I should check them out more often. I love how you've added the wooden and animal accents to balance the bright coral - it looks great!
