LBD... all about the fringe

FashionJan CorrellComment

Hi Friends,

Hope everyone had a great week.  Thankful for FriYay!  I have two upcoming events that will require a LBD, little black dress.  I love uniqueLBD’s and have several.  So before going shopping, I went thru my closet to see if I had one or two I could use.  So boring, right!  Well friends, I found one! The LBD I chose for the first event is anything but boring.  In fact, I forgot how much fun it is and remembered trying it on and twirling in the dressing room.  As you can see it is all about the fringe.  The brand is Kensie and I bought it last year and put it in my closet.  I only paid $24 for this dress, so knew it would come in handy in the future.  I have linked some similar fringe dresses in the gallery.  My Pour La Victoireblack pumps (possibly seen in an earlier post), are super comfortable for as high as they are and have great lines.  The animal print clutch was purchased in Charlotte last week at a fun boutique, CLTCH in Plaza Midwood.  I have posted some similar purses, also in the gallery.

Funny story, while taking these pictures in front of a large building, a security guard, asked us to leave the premises. Seemed very silly! HA!  However, I was standing on top of a large block of granite.  Mr. Silver negotiated for more time and was allowed 5 more shots.  We have not been run off a property in many years. 

Do you have a favorite LBD?  Would love to hear about it!!!

Have a great weekend and as always, thanks for reading. XO




Valentine Style

Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame.

Hi Friends, 

First and foremost, Happy Valentines Day!  I hope today brings you much happiness, joy, and love!  

As I celebrate today with Mr. Silver and our love of over 40 years... I remind myself that nothing worth having comes easy.  As high school sweethearts, we grew up together.  Through highs and lows, great times and sad times we never let our love grow apart!  Love is a lifetime of compromise, commitment, and trust!  

This post features three different Valentines outfits that are my style!  The first is a simple Kensie white blouse, Baublebar earrings, Red Theory pants (FTC) a Michael Kors Leather Jacket (FTC) and Circa Joan and David T-strap shoes (also FTC).    


Next is a red Karen Kane dress that is so simple and lovely, it will be a wardrobe staple for years to come, and it even has pockets! The Pour La Victoire black pumps were a find at Belk and make me feel so tall!!  My bracelet is vintage Kendra Scott and the clutch is Sondra Roberts from Nordstrom, now on sale.

Last but not least, is a Karen Kane cropped top in red lace with bell sleeves, black wide leg pants from Chico's, Kendra Scott earrings and black pumps (FTC)

As always, thank you so much for reading and being a part of my journey!!
