Swamp Monster Halloween

This is the first year in a very long time that we didn’t make it to the pumpkin patch for our annual Halloween photoshoot. The Kincade wildfire here in Northern California has been so scary, burned thousands of acres and we are under a mandatory evacuation. I am so thankful my husband Gary and puppy dog Luna and I am safe!!

I wanted to share some photos we took a few hours before the evacuation notice came and the outfit for Halloween I chose this year. I usually like to wear a fun novelty print skirt and this skirt delivered on all levels. The Swamp Monster skirt features a take on the wildly popular Creature from the Black Lagoon. The color is absolutely stunning, a rich teal/turquoise blue and the Swamp Monster has so much character!! I styled the outfit very simply with a matching teal/blue top and shoes along with our teal colored pumpkin, as it is Halloween after all.

Curvy Nautical Patriotic Style – Yasmina Greco

Hello my friends, summer is in full swing and the 4th of July is in a couple of days. Many of you will be enjoying BBQs, spending time at the beach or enjoying your summer vacations. These patriotic looks I have put together come in a variety of sizes and many in up to size 4X so us curvy girls can definitely wear them all year as the key is in the mixing and the matching of prints and the quintessential red, white, and blue colors we love.  You can easily take your outfits to the next level with accessories like cute novelty bags, shoes, and cardigans to rock your 4th of July style all year long.

I love nautical style and really anything nautical themed because it is so classic. These four outfits I have in my opening photo are very patriotic with a nautical twist and they are so easy to wear. Nautical print dresses are so fun during the summer months and just image wearing one of these in The Hamptons, Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Los Angeles, or San Francisco, wow, you will stand out with so much style!! You can take elements from each look and wear them all year.

Dangerfield Clothing Review – 1950s Novelty Print Skirts

Yasmina Greco
Isn’t this the most adorable 1950s repro skirt you have ever seen? The pattern originated from John Wolf in the 50s where Poodle dogs and puppies were put onto boarder prints for skirts and aprons. My heart started to sing when I saw this darling Puppy in A Basket print skirt from Dangerfield Clothing.

Dangerfield Clothing is a popular alternative Australian fashion brand with two additional labels Revival and Princess Highway. This puppy in a basket skirt is from their Revival label. The skirt comes in black and a lovely olive green color. The boarder print features the cutest little golden puppy dog sitting in a basket. I immediately had to have both color-ways and didn’t hesitate ordering as these prints sell out quickly.
