5 Over 50
This month I've thrown down the gauntlet - challenging the ladies with Amazing Lace!
Are you a fan or lace or is it something you'd avoid like the plague?
I obviously love a
I picked this up in TK Maxx a few weeks ago - knowing it would fit my challenge perfectly.
the cross-over detail on the bust is flattering with wide straps covering enough shoulder to look good. I'm happy with the lack of sleeve, I tend to get too hot atm so this style keeps me cool, should I need warming up, a cute little bolero or my cream cover-up from Bonmarche would do the trick nicely.
I love the length of the dress, midi styles suit me well. Anything sitting below the knee/middle of the shin makes an outfit look very sophisticated and chic - striking for nearly all of us!
You can see my dress has an inner lining that finishes above the overall length making a see-through panel which I quite like.
I've worn these sandals a few times before and they are most definitely "car to bar" footwear! These Zara sandals are suede & have a stylish ankle strap and three buckle detail across the top. I feel slinky in these shoes, but I'm not sure I'd be dancing in them!
I've got plenty of necklaces that would fit the bill and look stunning, but I felt happy with this
mid-length bead - this has a slight glint to it - just enough to a little interest without over-powering my look.
This padded evening bag mixes well with my outfit. I like the fact you can have the bag hanging on the chic chain or it you tuck it inside a clutch has evolved.
Until I manage to get a Chanel bag 😏 this is satisfying my yearning for now!
