Classic Black Pumps

Sparkle Day to Night

FashionJan Correll2 Comments

I love finding a multi-function dress that can be used for daytime casual or an evening out.  I recently found this cute little dress at Anthropologie, on the sale rack and below $50.  So I did what any fashionista would do and grabbed it, knowing it would be worn several times!  Now before you run out to grab it or shop online, I am sorry to tell you it is gone and sold out quickly.  However, I thought I would show you how I styled it, so that you too can get many looks out of one simple dress.

For a casual day look, I paired it with my favorite (Silver is the New Blonde™ personalized) jean jacket and some fun silver sneakers.  I wore this look to lunch with a friend and to a fun new brewery on a Saturday afternoon with Mr. Silver.  I also added a fun snakeskin purse and jewelry to make it a bit more casual.  


The same dress has now been worn to an evening dinner event, styled with black pumps, a black moto jacket, and a black clutch.  I have plans to wear this same dress for an upcoming evening wedding, with some strappy sandals and fun jewelry.  


Do you have a fun sparkle dress that you wear day to night?  I would love to hear about it in the comments below and if you too, have added some fun tennis shoes.  In the future, I plan to wear this with my low-top converse.  Why?  Because as we live this life to the fullest, we should find a reason to sparkle every day!

As always, thanks for stopping by, reading and commenting!  I so appreciate each and everyone one of you!










Fashion, Purses, ShoesJan CorrellComment

Do you celebrate Valentine's or Galantines?  Mr. Silver and I usually stay in and fix a special dinner for the two of us!  It is much more relaxing and since my birthday is right before, we are usually done celebrating and like to keep it simple.  But for those of you that like to celebrate on the town, I have put together a few looks around light pink and a little rose gold!  I wanted all three dresses to feature the same rose gold shoes and purse but the last dress did not work with the shoes... so I used black and added a fun new clutch ($12 at TJ Maxx!!) but linked below.

Hope you enjoy these three different looks!  I may use one of these looks for an upcoming wedding in March!! (I am a  bit late due to some heavy celebrating for my milestone birthday this weekend!)  I have linked all in the gallery below, unless the piece is from my closet, #ftc.


As always, thank you reading and stopping by the blog.  My goal is to share authentic ageless style and relevant information as we share this journey together!  I so appreciate you, my friends and readers!  XXOO


The Classic Shoe

FashionJan Correll1 Comment

No matter the time of a year or the occasion, I love my classic black pumps.  My favorites are not Louboutin's.  They are Italian-made Ann Taylor's from a few years ago.  So many years ago that I have had them re-soled three times.   And they never disappoint...for style, comfort and a classic look.  I still have people stop me and comment on them (I believe in a quick shine  before wearing)!  Wow, if they only knew their age...but the classic cut never fails.  In fact they dress up any outfit;  a business meeting, a night on the town or even with my favorite jeans.   I recently bought a new pair of classic blacks, but every time, I reach for my old favorites. A classic shoe like these come in all levels of heels, including kitten heels.  The goal is to find the cut, and fit that is right for you.

The Royals know better than anyone that these shoes are timeless, per this article by Samantha Sutton of POPSUGAR.
