Fashion Favorites (w/e 6/4/22)...

My favorite inspiration outfits this week from online browsing/shopping and from some of my favorite fashion bloggers. I couldn't (or wouldn't) necessarily wear any of these, but I like the way they've been styled or some particular component of the outfit. I might put an accessory on my shopping list. Maybe the outfit inspires me to put together something similar from my wardrobe or to try different color combinations. Sometimes, I just love the whole look. Thought I'd share and hope you enjoy...

As always, thank you so much for your comments on these threads! I read them all. I especially enjoy reading why you like an outfit or why you don't and how you might tweak an outfit, or what individual pieces you like.


#1   



#2  (But not with these heels.)



#3   Great blazer...love the jewelry, too



#4



#5(a)



#5(b)



#6  I'd wear this in a heartbeat (but I'd wear sandals that fit me UGH)



#7



#8



#9   Looove this color...favorite



#10   Yes!  This is the way to roll your cuffs...you go, girl.



#11  My other favorite (I don't mind a little distressing) but with sneaks or different sandals



#12   Has my name written all over it, except I can't wear heels any longer 



#13  Inseam needs to be either shorter or longer (YMMV)...beautiful color



#14  Classic




#15 It'll be near impossible, but try to ignore the sweater (which IMHO is all kinds of wrong with this outfit). But, these pants are so kool, and I'm not a big fan of patterned pants. I'd wear them with either a black or pink tee. Love the sandals, too.


I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

You have such a sense for style. Can you please come over and dress me? lol Seriously, you should be a personal shopper. I sure would pay you. Or you should be a buyer for QVC.

 And to think I was considering buying as a B-day present to myself.  Dress is perfect for an evening out strolling the boardwalk, concerts, comedy shows,  lounge shows, etc. when I am in Atlantic City at the casinos.  I found the dress on the ZOE website.

Yes, classic, always in style, very appropriate, but I think the blazer is too small for her.  Sleeves and jacket overall too short.  

 

I think a navy belt would look better.  

 

I don't like the below the waist look or the shoe style.  I'd rather see navy loafers or oxfords with this outfit.  Straight leg pants.  

 

Handbag larger and navy.

Thanks @Malcontent   Wouldn't personal shopper be a fun job!?

 

@Mz iMac   I hear ya.  That dress is gorgeous, but the price is enough to make a grown woman weep...or take out a small loan...or defer the cable bill for a few months...whatever it takes!!  (BTW, you come up with the best avatars.)

This outfit has potential if we did this and that to it.  Lol.

 

The sweater is too large for her.  Roll up the sleeves or go down a size. This color brown with those pants just doesn't cut it.  That might the other color in the pants, but it's coming across grey on my screen.

 

The pants would be fine longer to the top of her shoes.  I think they are too tight.  The color not for me, but I like the pattern.  

 

Shoes are cute, but not with this outfit.  Sandals with a heavy sweater, IMO, do not go together.  I see something more sporty.

Re: Fashion Favorites (w/e 6/4/22)...

I have my usual complaint about the footwear in many of these pics.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

 

Love this sweater - that similar to some that I make - my faves.  And, I like the pants.  I do agree that it's wrong for the outfit.  Sandals and a bulky sweater?

 

-----------------------------------------------------------

 

I do like the pants (a little longer and  remove the buttons) and jacket - but not the shirt - for me it has to be a turtleneck, and a closed low-heel shoe. I like that leg shape.  Just started wearing that style - like the way they look.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Something that really, really, really bothers me - pushed up or rolled up sleeves and rolled up pants. Absolutely do not like that look.

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Love the vest - don't care for the rest.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

The dresses are definitely not my style.

 

I'm not a fan of high heel shoes with pants. Even in the days when I could still wear heels - never wore them with pants.  Just don't like the look!
