Always A Leather Jacket

When in doubt. Wear a (faux) leather jacket.

I bought this glittery tank and leggings at my friend's boutique The Charlemont. The tank was $36 and the leggings were $18! I don't know how she always does it but her prices for really good quality items are amazing. The leggings are not those thin little nothing leggings that are more like tights, these have good control, a wide waistband, and they are made from a dense fabric that is not shiny or see through.

The suede pumps are old from Saks Off 5th. The faux leather jacket is one that I got at Stein Mart last year. The clutch is from S.M. Bradford Co. Hilton Head Island. I wore crystal earrings and a couple of crystal rings to complete the look.

You need not spend a lot of money buying something for a special event that you may never wear again. If you have a good selection of basics you can get dressed for any event that comes your way.

Accessories and attitude make all the difference!

Happy New Year!

Hi Susan, Happy New Year! I wanted to let you know about a great pair of leggings/pants I own you might want to check out. I got them at JC Penneys (I like some of their merchandise) and they are the a.n.a. ponte knit pants. They fit like leggings and are a nice material, wide waist band, not see through or shiny at all. They have a 5 star review which is something I always take into consideration. They cost $36 but if you order on line you can get a coupon code for a percentage off. The on line item number is 8446910. Today (1/1/16) you can get 25% off.

Just wanted to let you know about these pants in the event you want to check them out. I own 2 pair and love them! They come in black (which I own), chocolate and gray.

Let me know if you try them!
