Style Sunday | Repeat Offender

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I am guilty on several accounts of repeating outfits. Hey, they’re my clothes! I should get to wear them as much as I like. It is said that you shouldn’t buy anything that you can’t style with at least three other items in your closet. I’m actually really bad at that I think I have shopping ADD because I see something I like and buy it with no regard for the rest of my wardrobe. For a while, I felt like I had a closet full of statement pieces which made it feel like I had nothing to wear, even after I added new items to my closet.

The only new item I’m wearing is this long sleeve tee from J Crew which I love!!! Adding a high-quality basic tee can make all the difference when layering pieces together for the fall and winter season. I almost didn’t buy it because well I got distracted by sparkly jewelry. This basic tee can be paired with so many things. Everything else in this look is a repeat and I ain’t ashamed to say that this orange long line vest is something  I wear often. Be sure to follow my Instagram (@ohwizeone) to see the other ways I style my J Crew tee.

Fall Style with Cincinnati Premium Outlets

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Who doesn’t love a day at the outlet mall? Knowing that you are bound to get an incredible deal on designer clothes is enough to make any woman overjoyed. When Cincinnati Premium Outlets invited the ladies of Thread and I out for an exclusive blogger event, I was thrilled.

Before You  Shop

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when outlet shopping because you have so many options. Before I go shopping at an outlet mall to update my seasonal wardrobe I put away all of my summer clothes . Then I consider the looks that I desire to recreate and get rid of items that have seen their fair share of wear and tear. I knew that I needed a new pair of black booties and these booties from Nine West are everything.

More Than A Dress

I also knew that I needed dresses that I can wear now and in the colder months that will pair well with boots. You won’t believe where I scored this amazing dress that fits so well! Dress Barn they have updated their line and have greatly improved the options in the plus. I would recommend sizing up in this dress if you are on the busty side or want extra arm room. Do they give noble peace prizes for shopping? Drop your preconceived notions and give Dress Barn a second chance.

Jumpsuits and DJ Khalid… Another One

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

They didn’t want me to have another jumpsuit so Gwynnie Bee sent me another jumpsuit. The best part about having an unlimited closet with Gwynnie Bee is that I don’t have to feel bad when they send me my current obsession, jumpsuits. I love a good adult onesie and I recently closeted this Raga floral jumpsuit.

I think this jumpsuit is so versatile and can be paired with a blazer which would make it perfect for work. On mornings when I am short on time and need to look put together I plan on throwing this on and heading to the office. If you’re interested in starting your own unlimited closet today you try Gwynnie Bee today and get the first 30 days free by clicking here. For more tips on finding the perfect jumpsuit for your body type be sure to read my blog post  Jump Into It.

Cranberry Spice Latte

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Fall is in full effect and I’m not a big pumpkin spice fan. Don’t get me wrong pumpkin spice lattes are tasty but I can take them or leave them. What I am here for this fall is adding cranberry and burgundy items back into my wardrobe. I totally plan on doing a totally monochromatic look and matching my lip color with my outfit.

 

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

When I saw this top from Simplybe I had to have it because it looked like the perfect sophisticated alternative to a fall sweater. I can layer it under a jacket or wear it alone. I think it’s sexy enough to wear on a date when it’s cold outside or dress it down on the weekend with denim.

What color do you plan on incorporating into your fall wardrobe?

Style Sunday | Velvet Crush

_SAM6139.JPG

Style, Sustainablity and Velet

This weekend I had the honor of attending the Style and Sustainability Gala. The show showcased sustainable fashion from designers. Think the recycling challenge on Project Runway. The fashions were amazing and most of all good for the environment.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

As for me I decided to rock velvet because it is trending for fall and I got an amazing deal. I found this Mynt 1792 dress at Gabe’s for 21.99! Mynt 1792 is amazing plus brand that is normally sold at Nordstrom and in their own online shop. This dress would have normally cost around $170. Gabe’s has recently gone through a rebranding and I am glad to see they also upgraded their plus size selection. I had to try on at least 10 dresses and loved all of them.

If you haven’t checked out Gabe’s plus size selection I highly recommend to taking a second look. You can find great deals and an awesome selection on department store and designer brands. Who doesn’t love  a good deal. _SAM6138.JPG
