Part Two of Interesting Fashion Question…

Posted on: February 28, 2014

This is Part Two of the Post from Yesterday

An Interesting Question arose on the You Look Fab Forum, 

“Is there one class of item that defines your style?”

The poser of the question listed jackets as her one type of item, while others listed anything from shoes, to striped tops, flared skirts, boots or even earrings….

My answer was a category I call ” The Third Completer Piece”  

This is a broad catergory, but definitely a must in My Style

Yesterday I showed Blazers and Jackets as my first type of “The Third Completer Piece” 

The second Type is Cardigans…


I have a real thing for patterened cardigans, as I love the interest they add to basic solid colored tops and bottoms worn with them….


Polka dot cardigan for pattern mixing…


I have this pink one in green and yellow as well, perfect for Spring and Summer

This is actually a long cascading sweater that I tied up to give more waist definition, something I do quite often with longer cardigans…. A trick for us Petites…


A favorite zippered cardigan with circle quilting on the bodice…I loved mine so much I bought my dear friend one with different shaped quilting for Christmas…


Another Zippered version with cable knit and a hood…


A basic black with no closures that’s meant to hang loosley…


Super comfy warm boyfriend style, I own one in burgundy as well…


And let’s not forget short sleeve versions for Summer going into Air Conditioning…


A twin to the green one above, but knotted this time to again add waist definition…

Dear Readers,  I own a lot of sweaters in all different sleeve lengths, weights and colors… I have a good mix of one’s I bought from Chadwicks, QVC , Ebay and Goodwill…I think the most fun part of losing weight was gathering a lot of cardigans as they are such a versatile piece and really do what that Third Completer Piece is meant to do, finish off an outfit… They add such warmth for people like myself who get cold easily and are a real life saver for movie theaters and indoor activities in summer where the AC is cranked high… I also love how a sweater is less dressy than a jacket or blazer for my Mom on the Go lifestyle….

This Winter I began a new way of wearing my cardigans as an extra layer under jackets as shown below...


The Third Completer Series isn’t done, yet… come back again tomorrow to see what’s next…


I am grateful that I began this series of posts that doesn’t require new outfit posts, as I woke up with severe Vertigo this morning and was unable to get dressed for the day…(this is the second time I’ve experienced this with a bout two years ago…)

I am grateful that my husband’s job allows him to be home early and he picked up dinner for everyone tonight, since I was out of commission.

I am grateful that my kids did maintenance cleaning of the kitchen and trash, so things keep flowing smoothly.

I am grateful that I sent my husband back out tonight (thurday)  to go pick out one final sports picture to complete his office makeover… (pictures soon) I also needed the quiet it gave me for my spinning head…

I am grateful that my daughter soared through her phone interview today for graduate school.

The green and the two you tied in front are my favorites on you! Very nice looks. Of course I love the long skirt as well! Were expecting ice and snow tomorrow (again). I am so looking forward to Spring and getting out my long skirts!

Thanks…we have warm temps for the weekend and are expecting 27 by Monday evening. ..too bad I am too sick to enjoy the weekend.

I especially love that tan/white cardi in top photo. I’ve thrifted a couple recently that remind me of that, but I really love the neutral tones in yours. I think the ones I got may be from Target. I’m excited to wear them.

Yes, that printed one is probably my most expensive and hasn’t been worn as often I would like…. I have an outfit put toghether with it right now waiting for when I kick this dumb sinus infection…
