Live Out Loud

For a number of years I wished that I could blend in, meaning- I wanted to be able go about my day-to-day activities escaping everyone’s notice. You see, I’ve always been a fan of bold colors, and my style of dress, and or overall appearance (I’m not sure which?) always seems to…well…be noticed! I can remember wishing in grade school that I could somehow ‘disappear’ and just carry on without any notice. Have you ever felt that way? I suspect the fact that I am an admitted introvert had something to do with such feelings…but who can be sure!? LOL! Anywho, I viewed my style of dress as something solely ‘for me’, I didn’t look forward to having face to face dialogue about it or not much of anything else for that matter, HA! Fast forward a number of years later, I am beyond amazed at the length and depth of my personal journey. True, I am the appreciative introvert (I discussed it previously here) but despite such – I live out loud!
Today’s look represents my second style pick from Eliza J. (see my 1st pick here)! This knit off the shoulder top and ball gown maxi skirt takes on GLAMOROUS by storm! Perfection for an after five affair, a dressy dinner party, and alas - a fantastic option for a very special date night! 

Stay tuned Babes for my third and final pick of ‘Get Glam with Eliza J.’!!!

  4. What a classy outfit (and location is perfect)! Like you, I don't dress up to be noticed or discuss clothes with strangers - I do it exclusively for my own pleasure and creative expression, but I appreciate positive feedback when I receive it. :) Thank you so much for stopping by, Joi! Happy New Year!!!

  9. Wow, you look amazing! I love the maxi skirt. Does the faux fur stole have pockets? If so that is genius. I'm obsessed with pockets! I used to be very shy as a child and want to go unnoticed, thankfully I've cast off those inhibitions :-)
