Versatile Style by Tracey

Archive for the ‘Uncategorized’ Category

I recently heard about this app called Cladwell for

generating outfits with items you have in your closet.

I balked at the idea of inputting my wardrobe as let’s

face it, is maximal!

But this week I was sitting watching my Sophie

Bunny like a hawk after her surgery to get spayed .

Day 3 and she is fully back to herself,

a sigh of relief that last night she ate her hay!

Watching her every move gave me an opportunity

to spend a day playing with the Cladwell App.

Check this https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jw1ePE2xRi4out for video on the app

These are all custom photos from items I bought this season

and were easy to load from online sites where I purchased them .

It is great to have both the ability to add your actual pieces, but also

a real time saver to add in similar styles from their pre loaded options.

 I wore this look yesterday,but didn’t get photos as I really was

having sinus pressure issues.

 

 

These are all preloaded options similar to items I have.

You can get outfits generated for you or create

your own looks, but this is one I put together myself.

This was the look in action,

I like the pop of yellow in the purse, but once again,

my fondness for tone on tone looks is going strong.

I am having fun with this app and will play with it a bunch

more in the future.


This 

This is one Cladwell generated for me and I liked , so I added

it to my Favorites to wear later.

The app is linked to your area weather so chooses

appropriate looks for the day.

Ypu can also choose items for Capsules to remix and wear.

Typically we wear 20% of our items most often and the app

Keeps track of that.

Another look I favorited.

Not all outfits generated work to get the right

proportions , but it offers the opportunity to change pieces in the look.

All in all I like this more than I thought I would.

The biggest issue that I found is that pullover sweaters

are stored in the layers section so they offer looks with tops

underneath a lot!  The solution is to just custom add sweaters into

the Tops Section which will allow you to add layers like vests,

kimonos, jackets or cardigans over top of them.

I actually messed up and stayed in PJ’s then wore an outfit fitting this 

and had such a busy active day in the house that I forgot to take photos, 

went to watch a dress rehearsal and got home at 10pm….

So, I went to Pinterest and looked for some grey outfits and 

screenshot them on my Ipad for ease and a quick way of posting….

I thought this charcoal grey with stripes and the on-trend mustard cardigan

was one I would love to imitate in the future.  

D3084F1B-4E6A-451D-BFD3-8132CB1E0799

There were a lot of examples of neutral themes, 

two shades of grey with a brown jacket is a nice option. 

Brown is another color that is on trend this season,

and I for one am happy about that! 

9FFDB90B-2A78-438F-B849-D36E5130E21C

A floral top and burgundy color paired with

grey is right up my alley!  C735C7D3-11B0-4E77-9F61-2626844AF99A

I might not have thought of pairing grey with navy 

and a touch of cognac in the belt and boots, but I like it.

I think this is too minimal for me,

and a patterned scarf would change that. 

I chose this to show because most likely we all have ways 

 to make this one work!  

320E7CE4-1103-4B95-A456-4E9797BDF7BD

Chambray shirts are still everywhere and note this half tuck 

styling that is a new thing, that I have not tried, yet.  

The accessories really take this outfit up a notch!  

You could add leopard shoes to this as well. 

E8D391BF-4745-4614-90D6-676618F05C35

Yet another neutral look that was so common in my search! 

I like the addition of the scarf in this one. 

87281748-F5DC-4845-B6EA-24280A707AF6

Another way to incorporate it with Olive.  

An olive utility jacket or vest would be a good option too! 

C7A1C2FA-4E20-489F-A269-67866497E833

I love wearing white jeans year round, 

so definitely felt I had to include this one. 

ECB849E7-9A3A-4C83-84E3-C14CFD146890

I also found several ways I have worn grey in the past. 

I have always loved Pinks and burgundy with grey. 

F3CF4A4E-61B1-4305-9783-080B1AFB436D

Purple and grey is something I have worn together most of my 

life and a flashback of a grey plaid skirt and purple sweater outfit 

I wore in high school came rushing forth as I typed this! 

68119D65-E429-47A3-8F20-4A15C8B331B2

I felt so darn spunky when I wore this look, lol 

I still like it, lol 

F87FBEF3-8D57-47BE-BD04-27F77540B778

Charcoal with mint works well. 

40A840FE-8D6E-44A0-876A-AECEF6D7C6EB

Light grey with a bright green also works, lol 

I actually think a cobalt blue scarf if I had one, would do well here! 

B1F5453E-4BF4-4E67-B748-BCBD020205E4

This is a more neutral look that I tried out. 

Of course, the patterned cardigan and punch of orange handbag

and the leopard takes this one to a new level…

5D43E4CD-D4CF-487D-8FAC-63BB98F45000

I had to end with a Pittsburgh Steelers look, lol 

High low shades of grey and a bit of lace work really well. 

So, how do you like to wear grey, do you prefer light grey or dark charcoal?  

Has this inspired you, comment and let me know? 

Gratitude

I am grateful that my youngest son 18, registered to vote today!! 

I am grateful my oldest son dropped by and was part of celebrating my son’s voting registration! 

I also love that my oldest 32 was telling my youngest how lucky he is to know that he is good at something at this age and to hold onto it (he was referring to bowling) 

I am grateful that my husband didn’t have an appointment until late afternoon. 

I am grateful that I got to go see the dress rehearsal of my best friends daughter’s play, Annie as I was going to miss the play this weekend!  

 

 

 

Since I didn’t post yesterday, 

Today you get a TWO-FER, lol 

IMG_0716

Loft Crop Pants 

First up is my look for the Black & White prompt, but 

the real topic of conversation is wide leg crop pants. 

After years of skinny, it is so nice to have more variety and 

let’s face it , a curvy girl’s friend is wider leg options now available. 

Simple outfit formula : Wide Leg Cropped Pants with ankle booties and 

one you will see me wear a few times this season.   

IMG_0718

Joan Rivers Tassle Necklace 

My tassle necklace is new as I really needed one in silver. 

This Joan River’s one is such great quality and I adore it as 

much as my gold one by her line in a different style.  

IMG_0721

Iman Fringe Poncho

The next prompt for October Style was Fringe and I may have 

over done it as I am wearing 3 pieces with fringe, lol. 

I think I would have preferred this with a

slightly longer pant leg, but I don’t hate it, lol!  

My Marc Fisher boots are new this season, as nothing is more fun than adding a fun color ankle boot into your style! 

IMG_0732

My other two fringe pieces are the scarf and purse. 

I have added a couple of scarves for the season by Ann Taylor 

and Loft and am loving the quality.  Unfortunately, 

I find they sell out rather quickly, especially with sales like the recent Labor Day one in which I purchased this one.  

I FINALLY added a fringe purse into my style, 

something my boho loving self-has sorely neglected.  

I scooped this one up as it was on clearance for $20.94 

Be Sure to Stop by Tomorrow for Shades of Grey  

Pop on over to the Turning Heads blog link up to see several other bloggers and this one with lots of 50 plus bloggers! 

Gratitude 

I am so grateful for answered prayers and signs from my sister, just when I need them!  

I am grateful that my son is having so much fun with bowling right now and is doing so well.  He got a clean game meaning he got all Strikes and Spares recently that netted him a spot in Top 5 competition this weekend.  

I am so grateful for the boost to my son’s self-esteem with the bowling success, as the damage from his 6 years in school before I homeschooled him, still lingers.   

I am grateful to my friend for our movie days, as it is getting me out of the house more!  

 

 

 

 

Closet Staple are those basic pieces that you build Outfits from,

those pieces that get a lot of use.

It doesn’t get more basic than a striped top.

This is one I picked up at Burlington several years ago

I love the button details which are perfect for my more maximal style

On that note, my jeans embroidery nods to that too.

This entire look is pieces I have had for a while.

Just a note, my dear readers,

I will be doing just my photos by my favorite tree because

I am so outside my comfort zone with my current weight.

I am heading back to Weight Watchers meetings tomorrow!

Today is Shirtdress day and I will be styling it two ways

There are definitely more than two ways, but alas 

more will have to wait for our temps to become cooler, lol 

My Gratitude for Today is this sweet, Mini-Lop, who I got for 

Mother’s Day and who has definitely brought me joy 

and helped me stop my daily crying over the loss of my sister! 

Introducing the best therapy pet, ever!

My Sophie, Mini-lop!

I may have to do an entire post on this precious baby.

She is 6.5 months old and today I made her vet appointment

to be spayed for October 15.

This date ensures she will be healed when I go in for eye surgery to remove these

spots from my genetic rarity of Cornea Dystrophy in November!

How about browsing some other bloggers Here! 

 

 

 

 

I was playing around on Pinterest and came across these two looks 

as trends for Fall 2018. 

I had recently purchased a floral print maxi dress to style for the season 

ran to my closet to play around with it and find ways to style it. 

I have to say the buffalo plaid with floral is very appealing!

It hits that ying/yang vibe of masculinity and femininity perfectly!

You can find my dress Here, I read that it ran small, 

so I ordered a small instead of a medium and it was the right call. 

I have lost inches from doing Intermittent fasting

and my bustline went from 42 inches to 38.5! 

The inspiration look with 3 patterns was a bit much for me, 

and I don’t think I would have tried it with leopard print on my own.

Definitely will give this a shot.

A break from pattern mixing,

but with the fabulous element of texture!



A floral bomber jacket

in a larger scale print works well.

Add of course we cannot forget a classic jean jacket.

Last up, spicing it up with zebra print, lol

There are other ways I could wear this as well,

because like most floral prints

there is green to play off of with an olive

jacket or cardigan.

This is my outfit for the day.

Using 2-3 shades of one color is on trend and an easy outfit formula 

These Plum shade Jeans are by Diane Gilman, found here. 

Available in Petite, Regular and Tall. 

Please note that the color looks red or burgundy on HSN Site. 

Next week I vow to be more consistent with blogging, 

my sleep patterns are horrendous lately, but I think I have it 

under control now,  

 

September 1st began the Calendar of Prompts

I made for a group of my Style Sisters.

Of Course I invite my dear readers to follow along too.

september style c0l0rYou may post pictures on Versatile Style By Tracey Facebook Page

of your outfits and even include them on off days if you missed one you like

or if it fits better with activities of the day.

I think this embroidered kimono is my favorite.

I was really pleased when I saw this photo as my weight gain had been

making me feel less than and this photo shows my cheekbones,

pond of my favorite assets and a rush of healing came over me.

   This is the necklace I was wearing, one handmade by my sister,

and one she wore quite often.

The next Prompt was all about accessories and again I featured

pieces from my sister. In fact the fish necklace posted below

was among the very first she made many years ago.

The blue fish one , even has a darling fish clasp, lol.

The fun blue glass star was among my sister’s beading supplies ,

I have worn it on every length of silver chains I own.

Florals is Today’s prompt.

I love printed pants as we all have so many

solid tops as ones with several colors like these

gives plenty of options.

Wearing a sweater despite this heat because I was inside

cold AC, so book-ended it with my white slip on Sneakers.

Neclkace made by a friend and two vintage bracelets I got from a lot

I purchased on EBay a few years ago.

Happy Labor Day !

Thanks for Stopping By, Tomorrow’s Prompt 

Shades of Blue!
