Movie Poster Inspiration- Raiders of the Last Ark

Posted on: April 8, 2013

This week on the You Look Fab Forum, some of us are getting together and doing a week long movie poster inspiration styling challenge.  It can be as loose of an interpretation as you wish… Monday’s poster was Raiders of the Last Ark

My interpretation is something I would wear in my real life and if you are a regular reader,  no surprise that it involves a dress… My first thought when I saw these photos, was it’s a good thing I just started using a self tanner! Remember to check out all the lovely ladies at the link up Visible Monday and My Greatest Hits

I thrifted this dress awhile back thinking it would be very versatile and multi seasonal.  I wore it once before , but scrapped the idea of layer ing this again as the sleeves are just too bulky even when you unroll it.. The material is rather stiff and unforgiving, I am hoping with a few more washes that it might help that.

The purse was is a bronze color and was given to me by a dear friend.  I thought the relaxed slouchiness was appropriate for this casual look.  The shoes are my recent Ebay purchase and are Franco Sartos.  I have to take a moment to comment about the effect these shoes had on my dear husband… He loved them and when I say loved, I mean couldn’t say enough and felt they were very sexy.  This makes me very happy because as I have been developing my style and realizing I want an edge to my normal ultra feminine looks , my husband has been complimenting and fully embracing those changes.  I would still be choosing this path, but sure helps that he loves it too!

Both the hat and my necklace were purchased in the Caymans.  I wear summer hats a lot to protect my face from sun damage so was thrilled to find a new one.   Just for fun I added my leopard scarf to the hat, which prompted my youngest to say, ” Whoaa Mom, you look like you are ready for a Safari!”  Too bad it was just to go outside for a photo  shoot.

My husband snuck this picture as I was walking, but turned out that I used it to show you the scarf which I left hanging instead of doubling around the  hat…

Dear Readers, I had fun with this inspiration.. Come back tomorrow for the Star Wars Inspiration… And as promised I will add my food choices for Monday(today) at the bottom of this posting.  But First the gratitude section, which I hope inspires you to find your own each day!  All comments are welcomed and appreciated…

Gratitude: I am grateful for a husband who pays such attention to the little details.  He even notices when I change blush colors !   I am grateful for my resolve to get back on track and the discipline needed to do so.  I am grateful to my older brother for just stopping by to say hi (he works long hours and rarely does so!).  I am continually grateful for the lessons of faith,  love and optimism my parents modeled for  me that carry me through the obstacles of life!  I am so grateful for the phone call from Ashley as she sounded so relaxed and calm, winding down her senior year and getting ready for her college graduation (she finally finished her community service this weekend which is the reason for her relaxation!)   

Monday’s Food Choices

Breakfast- Smoothie with yogurt, Sugar free French Vanilla Coffee Powder, banana and ice.

Lunch– I ate breakfast at 10am & didn’t feel hungry again until 2:30 so ate yogurt and grapes

Dinner– Leftover BBQ Chicken and salad greens with olive Oil & lt Italian W/green tea

Today I opted for a different smoothie as the frozen fruit one made me so cold yesterday, with just ice I was able to put the amount in to make it cold but not frozen…   I also planned my food out in the morning for the entire day as I knew what I was having for dinner and wanted to stay on track with my points which I did so, .Really proud of getting in all my daily goals including the two probiotics and green teas.. When I was sick these past weeks I was drinking way too many diet sodas!  Weigh In results on Wednesday!

Wish my hubby had a foot fetish! Then he wouldn’t moan every time I bought new shoes! Love the look! I am a Star Wars fan, can’t wait till tomorrow!!!

I have a friend who sends her used shoes to her ex husband who does have a foot fetish and he sends her back really great shoes… Now that’s the way to do it. don’t think she has bought a new pair of shoes for the 8 years I’ve known her other than running shoes…

This is a fun challenge! I love this dress, hat and sandal combo. You pulled it off perfect 🙂 Your husband is so sweet to take your pictures. Usually my husband is either rushing me or trying to take pictures of my butt, ha ha! Heather

funny, my husband likes to take about 50 pictures so I have to look through all of them to pick a few! He had gotten better at that,but joked himself when he realized he had done that on this day!
