Festive Element – Velvet

Posted on: November 25, 2015

This is my first outfit to sneak in a festive element for the season 

into every day outfits, as promoted by You Look Fab .


I bought this lovely green velvet top by One World for the season, 

as velvet was listed as one of the trends.  Since I bought it on clearance, 

it is only available in large and plus sizes.  

I actually bought it in red , too…


I added a few new leathers and faux leathers this season as well, 

and this seafoam 0ne by Guilana is going to become my favorite. 

I will definitely by pairing down my collection of faux leathers as this season ends

A woman only needs so many and I think I’ve overdone this category in my wardrobe. 

Putging those will be hard, but it is something I must face to really have only items that I adore and ones I grab often. This one will definitely make the cut and stay!  


My green cords and pumps are from previous seasons. 

The pumps were my 49th b’day present to myself.  

The shoes are from Chadwicks and still available , Here. 

My Dear Readers, This Thanksgiving falls on my father’s b’day and I dedicate my outfit to his memory, 

as green was his favorite color.  When you lose your father at the tender age of 13, you seek to find tiny threads

to bind you and keep him close to your heart. I’ve done that with the color green in my style and once even owned 

a green leather couch to embrace his memory.  For any who are missing loved ones at this time of year , 

I hope you embrace them in small ways like this one and know that they are always with you.  

Happy Thanksgiving! 


I am grateful that my daughter made it here from Boston, this mom was feeling some anxiety about her flying. 

I am grateful for a fun night with all 4 of my kids present and my brother and niece who stopped by. 

I am grateful for the laughter and the connection as we all enjoy this time together. 

I am grateful that my oldest brought a new card  game( Forbidden Island)  and played with his two younger brothers, with ages of 29, 20 and 15 , anything that can connect them is rare and special.  The game was unique that you play as a team, not against each other but against the game.  Unique and a great bonding for friends and families.  

I am grateful for the love of family and friends and this special time of year when we show our appreciation for each other.
