Happy Birthday to You

Happy Birthday to You

 That's right.  It's my one year Baby Blog Birthday.  See my very first post HERE.
 Thank you to these three lovely ladies who gave me a grand send off the very first day.

And thank you to every one of you for sticking around while I literally learn as I go.

I kinda have my own way of doing things.  Like today's post.

The Sugared Dress by Corey Lynn Calter - Anthro $198 - July 2011
Pippi Bow Heels in Tan  by Lola Ramona - DJPremium $175 15% off $149 FS Promo - June 2011

This post was a specific request by a Guest Comment.  She owns the Sugared Dress and asked me to style it for her.  So I did.  Six different ways. My goal was 10, but I ran up against the clock.  Because of the 100 degree plus heat, and rare humidity, I was forced to stage this shoot inside.  So please forgive the poor quality, in low light, images The photos were almost completely grey before editing.

All links are provided if product is available.  Otherwise you will be directed to my Virtual Closet for a product image and complete informational description. Hee-hee!

The first style is simplicity itself.  Nude Bow Heels and a Handmade Artisan Belt in Red.  Perfect for dinner, Birthday party or a night out in warm weather.  Add a Navy Coat and Nude Tights for cool nights.

Quilted Patent Iris Bag in Cream by Orla Kiely AW10 - Yoox Orig $335 Sale $170 FS - Dec 2010
Toasted Meringue Cuff by Lee Angel - Anthro Orig $198 Sale $100 - Mar 2010

This outfit includes the same Nude Bow Heels with that delightful color display at the back.  I went with the belt that comes with the Sugared Dress.  Ivory Patent would have been my belt of choice if possible.  Must add to list of Closet needs.  I then dressed up the look with a Quilted Patent Bag and a Silk Bow Bracelet. The Sugared is now decked out in Wedding Finery.  Add Ivory Coat and tights for cooler months.

In whole sizes only.  If you are a half size, size down for a great fit.  If you are a whole size like me, size up.   These will fit a wider foot great, and slip on narrow feet. I tightened mine up with Heavenly Heels inserts by Foot Petals.

This outfit jumps ahead a few months to Fall.  Most of what you see here, is probably already in your Closet. Brown Sweater and T Strap Pumps with interest.  I tossed in an eye catching Yellow Belt.  This will take you to work, shopping, and lunch with your peeps. I'm not sugar, so a little rain won't melt me.

Twinned Ribbon Cloche by Tony Merenda of Christys - Anthro $58 - Feb 2010

This dress begs for Pink. How about a Strappy Pink Sandal and/or Real Stone Jewelry in Pink for the warmer months. Add an Easter Cloche and the Sugared Dress will slip nicely into Spring

High Gloss Belt in Sky - Anthro $28 - Apr 2011

Now let's bump up Pink, and pair it with Aqua.  This dress accommodates both colors alone or together. For some real fun add Polka Dots.  There are Pink Polka's in the Dress Print.

Anthro more than satisfies FUN for me. Heishe admires my colorful attire in passing. He will answer to Boy, Scallywag and even Cat Burglar.

The Sugared Dress is an easy to style dress that sprints through the Four Seasons.  Your Doorway (gateway) Dress for the entire year.  Does that answer your question about the multitude of doorways I am cavorting in?
