A Printed Shift and a Tassel Necklace

Tassel Necklace
A Printed Shift and a Tassel Necklace –

If you have been a reader of my blog for a while then it will come as no surprise that I am a huge fan of tassels and fringe and anything really that’s straight out of the 70’s. The necklace I’m wearing above comes courtesy of CS Gems who you may recognize from my interview with them. Right now they are offering my readers 15% off a piece of jewelry of their choice with code FASHION15 which you should definitely take advantage of because they have really unique jewels.

Now you may notice that I combined pieces from the 60’s, 70’s, and today. I just had to pair this mini shift dress with the 70’s tassel necklace and last season’s DVF wedges and I think it all works perfect together! Full disclosure: After viewing the photos I decided that shift dresses really don’t work well on my body type. I’m petite but I also have a large bust. So if you are top-heavy like me you may want to steer clear of shifts in favor of something more form-fitting as the shift tends to make us women look a bit bigger than we actually are. So there you have my fashion tip of the day plus a fab discount code for some brand new jewelry. I hope you guys are having a fab week so far.

Until next time!

    I love everything about this outfit! The colors, layered necklaces, THOSE WEDGES, and of course the 60s and 70s mix! I think you pulled that mix off flawlessly! I know what you mean about shifts – I sometimes feel I look like a linebacker in them because of my broad shoulders! 😉

  • #ManCrushMonday - When I refer to my BEST friend it seems so insufficient, since he is obviously so very much more than that. @ChandlerTindall has loved me through heinous fashion crimes, terrible haircuts and and even worse, moods that will give you whiplash. He knows every inch of my personality and loves me anyway. He supported me through my shaky business start-up, loves without condition and still even massages my feet and tells me how much he loves me everyday. I don’t know where I’d be without him. So I just wanted to dedicate this post to my sexy beast of a husband  BUT…since I put this on the internet, it’ll last forever!  @liketoknow.it #liketkit #LTKmens Shop Chandler's look here: http://liketk.it/2xWxr or take a screenshot of this pic and check out the LIKEtoKNOW.it app. #MCM

  • Shameless #carselfie | Thanks @vintandyork for these giant shades! Wearing the Glitterati in black (also available in clear). The oversized shape is perfect for hiding from the paparazzi and the roundness softens sharp edges of a square face like mine. Not your style? They have so many options for both men and women, check them out!#VintandYork is #newyorkmade! #vintageshades
  • It’s #NationalIceCreamMonth and I, for one, am celebrating with a pint of @BenandJerrys Red Velvet! As it happens, it was legitimately 87 degrees outside (I swear it felt like 102!) and it’s basically the surgeon general’s recommendation that everyone cool off this way! How did you indulge today, friend? Tell me your absolute favorite flavor!
