I own one in a deep pink/purple and another in a coral. You have seen the coral before, when I wore it with a crewcuts top and a pair of paisley pants (which were also from the outlet).
Today I am going to show off the other outfits I have created with these Bellas. They are not in any particular order and were all worn in 2011, but I can't promise you that they are all that "recent." LOL. I take my time and while many of my outfits/reviews are published right away, there are quite a few that just kind of stare out at me from Picasa saying, "why, dinagideon, why is it taking you so long to publish me???" Heehee, yes, I just admitted to having conversations with my pictures. ;)
I wrote about in this post. I find the dress difficult to wear, I feel like it is A LOT of pattern and a bit crazy, so I need to tone it down in order to wear it. I found the perfect solution with this jacket!
I wore this to an Arbonne party I was hosting a few months back. I find it fun to be able to dress up, be a bit professional, but because it is all part of a "party" atmosphere, I can rock wild colors and patterns. This party was successful, so I will take that as a good sign to wear this dress again at another business venture of mine.
The nude heels by Cole Haan? Yeah, needed to really tone down this part of the outfit, I can only imagine how close to clown-like I would look like if I had on brightly hued shoes, too. ;)
Obviously I had to wear Arbonne makeup that day (as I do most days, but on party days I really show off), and I like the colors/shades I wore that day.
|CW wields her magic wand wishing for a crewcuts Bella.|
This time I paired it with a navy tee (Boo Coo tours one with the gator) and the ever wonderful chambray cocktail capris and my ever present Japanese sandals (tend to be worn only in the house, honestly).
CW has now grown big enough to be receiving hand-me-down crewcuts from her brother. :) Rex has had this polo (with its cute crab critter in the hem) for years (2007, I believe) and now that CW is big enough, it is hers.
I paired the Bella with the vintage striped bateau tee in camel (love this shade), a pair of it! jeans, Cole Haan penny loafers, and a Chico's necklace.
BTW, don't you just love how Daniel Radcliffe is smiling over us? It is almost like he is blessing our friendship with his smile.
I obviously am on the subway here. Here is another way DC is WAY different than NYC. Even our Metro is all wide open. LOL. (Sneaky secret, though...I prefer the NYC subway, even though I took the Metro everyday to school back when. NYC subways are always on time, there are plenty of them, and there are tons and tons and tons of stations. I still prefer walking to the subways, but DC vs. NYC subway? No contest. Why do I hate the DC metro so much? Let's just say I blame it ALL ON THE RED LINE. You DC people will totally get that.)
You all have a great Monday.
P.S. I am going to be especially busy this week...I may not get to comments until late this week, if at all. I am still here, and I promise, you will hear from me again, and all questions asked will be answered. ;)
