Last Chance!

For those of you who missed the Holiday Last Dash and my Holiday Open House, here is a sneak peak of items that were at the show.  I will be sending the Trunk items back on Wednesday, so here is your chance to receive 25% off these special dyed items.
Get some last minute shopping done and purchase for yourself?

 I have one kika size 2 (4-6) in this red dress.  Would be super cute paired with pumps, black boots & black belt or leggings and a pair of flats.  Top it off with a fabulous piece of jewelry.
 I have a kika size 4 (10/12) available to purchase in this dress.
 The above black jacket is a little hard to see.  This is the Cami jacket, which was the #1 jacket last fall.  Notice the flowy collar down the front, it has rouching at the wrists and seams at the waist on the back.  I only have a size 1 (2/4) available.
 This thermal piece received great response.  Adorable thermal hoodie that has an elastic waist in back, which gives nice definition.  Pair the "Dakota" with a skirt or leggings and you will for sure be noticed.
 Gotta love this jacket~"Valerie" in the trend color for fall-bordeaux!  I love the seams in this jacket.
 I can't tell you how many of the Brenna tops that I sold last fall.  Women loved them for laying.  Here is the damask in bordeaux.
 OK, I have to tell you that you will want to sleep in the "Regan".  It is so comfortable.  I had this piece in purple last fall and ended up selling it to someone who needed my size and the color.  I was so excited to see it in the trunk box!  This would be an awesome gift for all ages!
 The animal print "Brenna" in navy!  Don't miss out!
 The "Harlow" skirt would be cute on all ages.

 This long skirt is the "Yvonne".  You will see long skirts again for spring in the fashion trends.  Take advantage of the 25% off!
The "Monica".  Pair her with your favorite skinnies!
Let me know which items you are interested in and I will let you know the availabilty.  Don't miss out on these "almost" one of a kinds!
Happy Holidays,  Debbie

"Penny" for your thought

Penny jacket by kikaPaprika!

Notice the rouched detail on the sleeve=bonus!

The white blouse under the Penny is by Etcetera.  I love detail in clothing.

I wish I would have been turned more so that you can see the great detailing in the back of this jacket.

Shoes by Poetic License!  Belt by Tory Burch!  Necklace from my "At home Made Ya Look boutique"

Happy Halloween!
I've been a little busy (understatement), so I'm behind on getting this out.
The Etcetera Holiday trunk show arrived early, so I have been making preparations for the last show of the season.  I can't wait to show you the line.  Have you booked your appointment?
I love dressing up and for some reason like being evil characters :)
As a child, I loved being a witch and that is usually what I am, every year that I dress up. 
I made this cape several years back and hadn't wore it for a while.  So, Cruella it was.....Plus, it is fairly quick to do the hair and makeup.  The witch makeup and nose addition take a bit longer.
When I would go to the door to greet the kids, I would open the door and say "Fur, I love fur" "Is there any fur?".  I don't think they knew what to think of me.  They would just stare and forget to say "Trick or Treat"

I should have dressed my grandbaby up like a dog and took him to the door with me.
The shoes are from my witch costume.
If you looked close at the photos, you will notice a difference.  We took a few photos and then I looked at them and decided I didn't like the added blush.  So...I removed it!
What is your favorite Halloween costume?

Simply Simone

I need to start out by apologizing for the glare in these photos.  I have been using a smaller camera which I use for traveling, for these blog posts and I am getting alot of glare.  These would have been taken outside, which sometimes help the glare but...colder.  We have alot of windows in our home, therefore~lots of glare.  I hope to find time to get my good camera to the camera doctor, soon.
For those of you who are around me, you know that I like to wear skirts, alot.  I find them to be super comfortable and cool in the summer with sandals and love them in the fall & winter with leggings and boots.
The winter white skirt that I'm wearing is by kikaPaprika, one of the clothing lines that I sell.  It retails for only $60.  It is super comfortable, machine washable and dryer friendly, with no additional shrinkage.
The top I am wearing is the "Paige" by kikaPaprika and retails for $76.  I decided to add this to my collection, as the Hudson Raiders colors are navy & white.  I thought the top would be fun for the games paired with skinnies.
How would you wear these two pieces?
The little four paw furry friend in the photos is our dog Armani.  He decided he needed to be in the photos, today.  Make it a wonderful week!

Fall break & Halloween dinner

It was fall break for Danielle over the weekend & Monday and Tuesday.  It was really good to have her home.  One of her request prior to coming home was a Halloween dinner.  You would think that at ages 24, 19 & 15 I would be able to stop the tradition of a Halloween dinner but.....(see below)
 Danielle and I after church at San Pedros downtown Hudson, A fave for breakfast.

 Skull heads and crossed bone icecubes were added to the drinks.
The table is waiting for the guests. 
 My theme this year was a focus on eyeballs.  What a goofy bunch!

 Mummy Meatloaf
 The pumpkin carving competition is on!  And, they were competitive!
 My son, Parker and husband.  Pat is watching the process.  Parker came up with this idea very quickly and got to work.
 Yes, Parker thought his pumpkin was #1.
 The finished works of art.  Can you guess whos is whos?
We had a great time!  Hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Stella & blue sky

I have to admit I didn't do well on our big move to Wisconsin from Indiana, now just over 6 years ago.  I'm not a cold feathered friend.  This bird likes the south.  But, one thing that I have to say is that we have beautiful blue skies here, alot.  It can be one of the coldest winter days and the skies will be the most beautiful color of blue.
I love how the above photo shows the blue sky.  In the winter, it will be even more intense.
The top that I'm wearing today is the "Stella" top by kikaPaprika.  And, how about those beautiful colors in the tree?  Isn't is beautiful? Fall is here!
Have you purchased an envelope style clutch?  I haven't carried one much, as I'm not sure that all my "stuff" will fit.  I've thought about painting on this one  I saw a cute idea on "Cupcakes and Cashmere" blog.
And, how about boots?  I love all of the variety and boots and shoes with fall.  The stores are making it hard for me to resist.
Goofing around with my daughter photographing me.  This picture does show the arms nice on the Stella top.
