Vince Camuto – Faves On Friday Number 3

Faves-on-Friday-3

Hello and Happy Friday,
This week flew by and was kinda easy. In spite of the short week, I got a lot done at home and at work. No big plans for the weekend, except Book Club which is always a good time. What are y’all up to? Whatever you do, enjoy it!

Today’s Faves on Friday is dedicated to Vince Camuto who passed away this week. Best known for co-founding Nine West and for his partnership with Jessica Simpson, he created cutting edge fashion, jewelry and shoe designs. His styles are super fashionable and at affordable price points. But the shoes are especially yummy. If you want to stand out in crowd, rock a pair of Camutos. But, I hold a high regard for him because he embraced the plus-size community. He is adept at dressing the plus-size woman in beautiful, on trend designs that accented the curves. I’ve handpicked some of my favorite Vince Camuto accessories including some sweet scents.

OOTD #51 – Chiffon Sweater

Hi Pretties,
How are things going? Two more days until the weekend! I’m sure you’ve seen lots of sweaters and tunics trimmed in chiffon in fashion land. It is a soft, sheer fabric that adds a feminine, girly touch. This OOTD features a stubby sweater nicely trimmed in chiffon around the hemline and down the back with a chiffon tie that can hang freely or be tied in a sweet bow. This sweater is burgundy but it has specks of black that give it a stubby feel. The length of this sweater is perfect – short enough to clearly be a sweater and long enough to cover the “rumpus” area. It is also pretty lightweight so if there is a chill in the air, grab a heavier jacket or coat. I finished off the look with black ponte pants and tall boots. No handbag today, just a few jewels in black and gold.

I snagged this sweater from ShopHQ and I’ve handpicked some cute choices of this same style sweater. Of course you can pair with leggings or my favorite, denim.

Chiffon is such a cute trim fabric, are you rocking this look?
