Icy Blue

I love it when I find a vintage dress that is simple and unfussy.  It gives me a blank canvas to work with which means I can add as many accessories as I want, whether it be a pair of statement cuffs or 50s rhinestone earrings.
Dress from Shareen, vintage sterling silver jewelry, anklet from Etsy, and Jimmy Choo pumps.

Blue is such a lovely color (my personal favorite). Blue and silver have never looked so beautiful together until you came up with this outfit. I love the design and the style of this blue dress. Equally charming are those silver pumps. The pumps may be silver, but your beauty is golden. And as usual, your curly bob hairstyle remains as charming as the rest of your outfit. Beautiful. Just beautiful!

You have such great style, and your clothes fit you so well. I think that's a really important part of fashion--finding clothes that flatter our shapes.

Also, you are in such great shape. Please write a post on how you stay and look so healthy with fitness and food tips!

No matter how expensive catier rings are, they are for keeps. They are made from carefully selected and quality-made rolex datejust watches
materials. Each stitch is made to perfection and each bag is completed with handcrafted gifts for girls accents that are sure to last. Although it is tempting to settle with cheaper replicas omega watches for sale and imitation, they easily show their colors. Instead of giving you pride, such bags will only embarrass you once louis vuitton outlet online glossy finish starts to wear off and reveal that you are carrying a hermes handbags online. Choosing authentic and genuine goods may cost you but it rewards you with chanel bag online that are practically works of art, which you can even pass on to your daughters or trendy miu miu hobo granddaughters in the years to come.
