I saw this purse trend and went nuts. I always loved the old ‘hat boxes’ and ’round bags.
I do have one of these but it’s a hard hat box I guess you could call it. A family friend gave me it me. (will try to include picture)
The very first picture and Look #3 are my favorites. I used to have a round purse of sorts, sadly I must have gotten rid of it as now I need a bigger one to carry my kindle which I usually have with me, especially if I know there’s going to be a free WI-Fi spot to hand out and relax while on errands.
Though at least one of those noted in the link is over one thousand dollars (really? why would you spend that much on a current trend when likely it will be around for a few months then gone? I swear there should be a cap even on the big expensive brands for fashion items)
Here’s a search Affordable Round Purses, I like the Clock face one best It’s a great price and reasonable shipping)
Here’s another I like though it costs more money but at least it’s not in the hundreds (or thousands seriously?)

Maybe I can understand if its the one and ONLY purse you will have for the next 10-20 years and will work for every season as well along with every outfit you wear but for me that’s a bore! I like cloth during the summer (and spring depending on how the heat and humidity are) and when Its the cooler weather it really doesn’t matter as long as it doesn’t belong on the beach. Though I prefer something black or brown and if it’s leather looking I have no problem as long as its big enough to fit what I normally carry plus I can fit hat, gloves etc in it should it be cold …(so far, we are having a warm winter)
We all know Millionaires have their eccentricities but their fashion much of the time I question more than my own.
Necklines, there’s Trashy and there’s elegant…be elegant. If you wear those platform shoes around me and fall or anything in front of me… YES I AM laughing at you. They look ridiculous
size is my problem… a lot of the time I can’t find a comfortable women’s t-shirt. No matter what size I can fit into Xl or double the shoulders always feel so small. Also I like air flow I always feel hot and tighter clothes make it worse. Also I have some super over large shirts and sweat shirts to wear around the house. They just feel more cozy than a regular nightgown (plus if I have a last minute guest, no matter how big the shirt is I’m sure to have one that will fit you! Then I have a larger zippered sweat jacket that I have so in case I wear something under it but its from Canada so likely I won’t get cold in it, (unless I go upstate)
under the combining colors, that blazer does not look navy blue, it looks black and to me, nothing looks wrong with it. Those not crazy for what the girl in the black & white outfit is wearing. Too boring…
as for the jewelry… even if you wear all one type of metal/color limit up to 2 rings on a hand. (your engagement/wedding band on one & 2 on the other if you must. For me it just looks like you are showing off and therefore telling the muggers to do so.

*Socks-my feet and hands as soon as the fall weather comes, usually always feel cold to the touch. I can take it on my hands to a point, but normally go nutty at home trying to keep them warm in booties, socks or both together! So if I go out, I usually wear a pair of the novelty socks (that are at least calf high if not knee or over the knee high) as they usually fit tight but comfortably and then I wear one of my white knee high socks and if helping out in the snow, one of my dad’s thick heavy Tube socks. Some people even were the fuzzy socks (which i usually use for slippers)
Leg Warmers– I wore an old Neon green pair to work when it was super cold (hey my knees sometimes wouldn’t want to move when it was really cold) so I got picked on for wearing them, but know what? I was the warm one while I saw everyone else outside freezing their (Male or female) you know what’s off!

Happy December! And welcome to part one of a two part series, all about how to wear ankle booties with jeans. Today, we’ll look at three different…
Tis the season for socks! In yesterday’s post, we talked about three different pairs of ankle booties — short, medium, and tall Read more
Now it’s rare when I do a write up for something fashion, as I’m not one for fashion. I know some things like silver looks best with black and Gold with White. That just because some say certain colors do not mix does not mean that you can’t wear them. (Yes You can wear red and pink together, but one of them has to be belt just a little trim, otherwise you look like Mimi from the Drew Carey show…..a clown)
With the Holidays upon us and Black Friday around the corner, I thought the perfect post would be a product review of a pair of boots I recently purchased.
Women’s Daily Shoes Combat Style Ankle Bootie Quilted Military Knit with hideaway Credit Card Knife Money Wallet Pockets
I’ve been eyeing these boots for at least a year if not more! I think you could say they are utilitarian, as they have a pocket for your credit card, money, key, multi (survival?) tool etc.(or just use it for emergency money)
so I thought these would definitely be worth getting with some of my birthday money (Though ordered before, so I could wear for any birthday festivities). Normally I wear a size 8 but being as a lot of footwear does not come with the arch support in it, not to mention sometimes there’s barely enough room between your foot and the inside of the boot to fit an insole in; I thought let me get a half size bigger, so I can wear thicker socks as well as in case I need to include an insole in it. I was right; there was no arch support, and thankfully there is enough room for a good insole as well as your foot to fit in comfortably!
These are the sort of boots that never go out of style!
There have been many a footwear that I had to either decide to use the insole and feel as though my foot is being squashed or to forego the insole and therefore my feet and back to hurt faster especially when shopping at a Walmart… (and all the other stores we go to when we go Middle-town, NY or the stores we go to in Connecticut.
With these boots, not only is there room for the insole, but I’m pretty sure there’s enough room left for some thick(er) socks than I normally wear, (like winter socks) but have yet to test as it’s still too warm, and there has not been a snow fall. (I have included a few options for thick socks below)
Now I really haven’t decided what exactly, other than a few dollars (maybe $20 -$50 for emergency or running out) to keep in my boots. Maybe a multi tool would be a good Idea in one of them. Oh and the pockets are fairly deep. Let’s just say before you try paying at a register like I did, try to have the money out before reaching the register, plus it’s not a good idea for people to see that you have your money etc in your boots, but I really only had 2 singles in there at the time so it didn’t really matter. Other ideas to put in them, why not those rewards cards, (I wish there were a way to combine all your rewards numbers into one account/card so that you just need the one card with you for them to swipe, scan or whatever and it will go through, (or just use a fingerprint)
anyway I really do love my new boots! I got them cheaper than they are at now, but they are worth the price. Plus like I said with Black Friday around the corner You will likely get a discount, and if you purchase through Ebates, You might get some money back from your order). There’s also have a choice of multiple colors, plus Camouflage and zebra print, as well as quilted color options! If I could get another pair so soon, I would order 2 more pairs a Quilted white/beige pair, but then that would get dirty too quick.. so maybe I’d go with the brown pair and maybe the ones that look like denim. I don’t care for the zebra print ones as to me they look like those flood boots.
If you don’t care for the version I got, there’s a couple other styles one like mine with bucklets on back (or so looks) and an ankle cut
Oh yeah,it’s a good idea to waterproof these (and any of your other footwear for when it rains, snows etc) I do so with all my footwear but mostly my Fall and winter boots, shoes etc. You want to do an even coating over the whole boot. I work on the seams first, let dry then I spray the rest of the boot. Let it dry then spray another layer, then I take a show sponge (like the ones some hotels give) and buff with that.
here are a few different thick socks for the winter, Knee high, over the knee and a few wool options for those of you not allergic.
1. 234 5.
So mad these are wool I was thinking of ordering some for myself, but I’m allergic to wool. (If you already think it feels itchy, let’s just say I will scratch myself til I bleed. Learned it the hard way.
Or for the geek girls out there..
5 . Doctor Who TARDIS Over-The-Knee Socks However these are not thick winter socks
Now where some have shoe collections, I’m a purse collector! (in a sense) I get rid of mine slowly and then when I do I end up missing them so I don’t just get rid of them that easy.
Honestly If I only had 2-5 purses then I might understand having one expensive one for dates, family gatherings etc. (Or just the ‘perfect one’ for the spring/summer, as I only have about that many purses for that time of year.) I need a bigger sized purse as I usually carry around my kindle fire, and if not then a book and a note pad, besides the wallet, a pen and a few other items. (Honestly for me it’s the smaller things that make it heavy!)
If you are like me, You really don’t care if you have a designer bag, but in my travels, it looks like everyone has one.
One year I came across a yard sale and saw a cool ‘Patchwork’ Coach purse (never saw one like it) and a hard shell Louis Vutton
tote. I checked them out a bit, and unlike past fakes I had seen and when I’ve looked in the actual stores to see what the linings, tags etc looked like. I thought these were real!!! The Louis Vutton tote even had the wallet in it! So I got the 2 purses and wallet for $20! (Images included are a close likeness to those I found)
