Debbie's Stylin' Dress and Pumps!


Feeling Kind Of Pink!

Happy Monday, everyone! I'm feeling kind of pink today, so decided to share a recent Goodwill dress purchase that I absolutely love! It must be those Spring flowers that I shared yesterday that have put me in this pink mood! You know I'm yearning for Spring!

I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw it. I guess you call the color hot pink? The color certainly lifts my spirits....as did the $5 price tag! Years ago I had color coding done to see which colors look best on me. I was told I was a "muted summer" and purples and pinks would look especially good for my coloring. I certainly do gravitate to those colors.

The dress has a cute metallic belt built into the waist. The dress tag says the dress was designed by Perceptions New York. I've looked for something similar online but can't find anything. There are many dress choices by Perceptions to be found online, however.

And, OK, I caved and bought high heels!  I absolutely love the look of these shoes with the dress! But, I don't usually go in for the higher heels. These are by Andrew Geller and were very inexpensive at Shoe Carnival. You can see the shoes here. The color is called "Merlot."

I give some of my various shoes times reflecting how long I can wear them before putting on a flatter shoe. For instance, I have two hour boots (because they have higher heels), all day boots (because they are flat), all day dress shoes (low heels), etc. I think these may be 30 minute shoes...Ha! But, they are so pretty!

For jewelry, I added a pair of simple silver metallic earrings.

And a bracelet I got for Christmas from White House Black Market.

Sometimes wearing the right colors can really lift my spirits. How about you? Do you have a favorite color that makes you feel happy? Have you ever had color coding done to see which colors compliment you most? Leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you. Hope you are feeling in the pink today, also!

Until Next Time,
Debbie

Wow... $5!! What a beautiful dress, very flattering style! I love the shoes with it. That's funny how you have time limits for your shoes! But a great idea, as I know what it's like to wear 30-minute shoes all day - ouch!

Thanks, Karen, for your sweet comments about the shoes and dress. And, you're right about wearing 30 minute shoes all day...BIG ouch!!

I have "stand still, look pretty shoes!" haha! My tolerance for them has gone down as I get older.
That dress looks fabulous on you. Great fit and color! Can't believe it was $5!!!
