True confession: I love it when someone compliments an outfit I’m wearing! Point proven when a young man working in the produce department at Walmart said this to me…“Look at you girl…lookin’ all fly!”.
That really happened y’all! You may be wondering, what does a produce guy know about style? Truthfully, I don’t know, and I don’t care. But I do know this….it made my day! So let’s get started and talk about some complimentary looks that will definitely have you “lookin’ all fly”!
Speaking of making my day….my friend, Laurie Blum, recently treated me to an “autograph party” in honor of my 360 West Magazine spread! Laurie is not only an amazing hostess, but also has a great sense of style. She wore a beautiful floral Ana Sui dress with a pair of black polka-dot Kate Spade pumps….the perfect print mix for the perfect hostess. And I loved how my friend and wardrobe client, Amy Gotcher, styled her LBD with a red shawl and matching red shoes!
My party outfit included a pair of Kate Spade block heels, black H&M jeans, a vintage Carlisle belt, and a Zara blouse topped off with a pink animal print blazer from Nordstrom’s/Top Shop! From dresses to blazers, I loved how our party guests complemented their style with a pop of red! Dr. Asad Dean, Ft. Worth fashion icon, stole the show with his red slacks…so debonair! Our Pinterest board features an array of red ensembles from dresses to pantsuits.
For a cool vibe, pair black jeans with a white t-shirt and white or a black blazer. For daytime, I suggest a cute pair of black and white checked kitten heels matched with a trendy translucent bag. To turn up your night-time style a bit, wear a pair of red heels. Look who’s making a statement now!
Speaking of cool vibes, a printed t-shirt worn with a blazer and jeans says one thing to me…“Shut yo mouth!”. Seriously…when paired with a cute pair of shoes and handbag, your look can’t get any cooler than this. And no one knows that better than Mrs. Twist. Her signature look….indeed!
From her “Heels on Fire” t-shirt matched with a camo jacket to her “Feelin’ Foxy” tee complemented with a black tweed jacket….she’s definitely “all fly”! And I’m loving how her red handbag with bamboo handles pairs so well with both outfits! Another favorite Mrs. Twist look is a black and white checked vest, printed red t-shirt, and monogramed duck boots. Fabulous and fly!!!
So here’s the deal, the next time a stranger gives you a compliment or a friend throws you a party.…be sure to let them know how special they made your feel! And don’t forget to pay it forward….because a compliment is the gift that keep on giving!
