Poppies and Polka Dots

Mabel and I have just the thing for you to welcome Spring back this year....take a look at this little number.

We like to call it Poppies and Polka Dots. 

This adorable blouse was made by Lanie J. (that's what the label says.)  It's a 1970's colorful treasure made from 100% poly.

The colors will brighten up any gray day and put a smile on your face.

Measurements: 5 amber-colored buttons keep you buttoned up and there is 1 amber-colored button at the cuff of each of the long sleeves.Width across front/under arms is 20 inches.  Length of each sleeve is 23 1/2 inches. Length (back of blouse) from color to hem is 28 inches.  There is no size listed on the garment, but model is approximately size 8.  NOTE:  There are a few spot on the front, near the buttons, but there are not very noticeable. 

This adorable blouse is only $7.95 Shipping Included!

This could be worn with jeans, as shown here, or lots of other ways.
You could use this as a cover-up when you go to the beach or the pool.  Can you imagine showing up in this blouse with your bright yellow swimsuit peeking out underneath?  Adorable!
What about over a turtleneck (any color) as a jacket, with a pair of gray slacks and heels?  Perfect for the office.
You could wear it, bottom two buttons buttoned, with a tank underneath, over a long flowy skirt and a crocheted or macrame belt for that boho-chic look.
Don't let us decide how you dress this up or down.  Make it your own and let it speak for itself.

Baby, It's Cold Outside....

....You need a sweater dress to keep you warm and brighten up the dreary day.  Look, Mabel...we have the perfect one for someone who is feeling cold and dreary.

Millie...I'll give the details of this gorgeous find.

This retro orange-red sweater dress is from the Tall-Over 5'7" Shop, A Lane Bryant Division (according to the label.)

Measurements: Length from top of back to bottom of hem- 50 inches
Width at hem-21 inches 
Width under arms- 21 inches
Length of sleeves-23 inches
NOTE:  There is no size label in the dress, but the model is approximately a size 8.

12 golden buttons keep you buttoned up from top to bottom and end before the wide (6 inch) hem.

The dress has a deep V-neck.

You know Millie, I have a perfect suggestion for how to wear this dress.
So do I Mabel....you could wear it with a black turtle neck, black leggings, unbuttoned and add a glitzy gold belt.
I was thinking it could be worn open with some dark jeans, knee-high boots (with heels, of course) and a frilly white blouse.
Or it could be worn with the sleeves rolled up, some flats and something frilly peaking out from the bottom.
We could go on and on...let your imagination help you decide how to wear this dress.
And by the way....This dress is ONLY $15...Shipping Included.

Ta-ta ....
Come back soon....
