Much has been happening at Chez Frump Fighter. Busy, busy, busy!
A friend and I went to The Pioneer Woman's book signing for her adorable new novel "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels." It's a happy book. Get it and enjoy.
All my pictures turned out blurry! So bummed.
Mr. Darcy's Valentine's Day gift was an event. I kept it a secret until we were on our way to The Vienna Ball!
We had a delightful evening and are now intent on taking waltz lessons. Knowing how would have made the night even more fun, as you can see by all the couples behind us who really knew what they were doing.
We'll talk more about my new super cute cocktail dress in a follow-up post. My fantastic up-do (that you can barely see in this busy photo) is courtesy of my stylist extraordinaire - Oscar. Who we'll also talk more about soon.
So while we're still powering through the final weeks of winter, here's a little challenge to refresh your winter wardrobe.
Pick three items in your closet and pair them with 3 other items you’ve never worn them with.
While changing accessories can completely change a look – for this challenge, they don’t count. A fresh look at your accessories will happen after you’ve paired the pieces with other tops or bottoms as applicable. Here are some suggestions to get you started:
1. a pencil skirt paired with a fancy, fitted t-shirt and cardigan (instead of its matching jacket)
2. khakis, ankle boots and a trench coat over a thin sweater & blouse (instead of the dark jeans and chunky knits you might have been resorting to)
3. a pale colored sheath dress you normally never wear in winter paired with dark tights, boots (knee or ankle) and coordinating cardigan or jacket. (the dark tights and "heavier" footwear will ground the look and keep you from freezing)
If you find yourself struggling to find 3 new items for the pairing, try my Walk Your Wardrobe trick. I discuss it here.
