Mod Monday Dresses

FashionJan Correll2 Comments

Hi Friends,

Happy Monday!  I have to say I was so happy for Monday as this past weekend wore me out!  My husband, BIL and I sifted through my in-law's house, where they lived for 60 years.  We were preparing it and the contents for an auction.  The parents are lovely, folks that are now enjoying living in a nice assisted living community. Living through a depression, they saved everything for possible reuse.  Let's just leave it at that... there was a lot to go through!

I hope your weekend was great and that everyone is looking forward to the holiday weekend!!

I recently found two Victoria Beckham dresses at Target on the clearance rack, $21 each.  They have tons of them if you like either one and many additional styles as well. I especially like the orange one! You can't go wrong with a drop waist with a ruffle on the bottom.   I found it interesting that at two different Targets, I heard from Target personnel that the collection tanked and did not last very long before being put on clearance.  I thought the cut and colors were great.  Most of them said they were surprised as well due to customer's continuing to ask for the brand. Refinery 29 published this article about the VB collection highlighting the price discounts. You may still be able to score a great dress or outfit but hurry!!  My shoes are Via Spiga FTC (from the closet) and Bauble Bar earrings.

Hope everyone has a great week ahead and I am sure we will chat again soon!!

As always, thanks for reading!




Mimosas and Sundays

Travel, Fashion, Lifestyle, Jewelry, ShoesJan CorrellComment

Hi Friends,

As you may have noticed, I took a vacation.  It was much needed, am very rested and heart is full after spending time with our children and grands.  Excited to be back!

We took a quick trip to Asheville this weekend and had a great time.  We love the downtown area, Biltmore Village, and all the fabulous breweries.  The West Elm outlet is fun too, if you love a great deal like I do!  The Grand Bohemian Hotel is one of our favorite places to stay.  I highly recommend you check it out!  

These fun pictures were taken while enjoying mimosas at the Grand Bohemian. I can literally have a mimosa any day of the week, but Sundays seem fitting... celebrating the week behind, the week ahead and the little bit of weekend left!  

This cute tee is from Target by Zoe + Liv.  My adorable black wrap skirt (frayed at the bottom) is by Cloth & Stone purchased at Anthropology (in the sale room.) Similar here.  These black suede espadrilles are Sam Edelman (one of my favorite brands.) My necklace is Roberto Coin (a gift from Mr. Silver), earrings are vintage Kendra Scott, and the matching clear bangle is FTJB (from the jewelry box).  

I hope everyone has a fantastic week ahead and that you get the chance to celebrate even life's little moments with a mimosa.  Here is a toast to the week ahead, "cheers lovelies!" 

As always, thank you for reading!
