Favorite look of the week

Do you know Jeeda?  She blogs at Swoon and I always enjoy her style!  She seems to marry an over the top piece with aplomb and elegance by grounding it with something seemingly pedestrian.  In my favorite look this week, it's this sweater with the sequined shoulders....which actually comes across quite wearable with these great fitting jeans and neutral heel.  And can one ever go wrong with a classic Gucci bag?




Another thing I really appreciate about Jeeda's style is her judicious use of accessories.  Often, in blogging and for the sake of an eye catching photo, we'll really pile on the accessories....necklaces, eleventy million bracelets (an arm ORGY!), scarves, anklets, bags, layers and more.  But Jeeda wears eye catching pieces that really negate the need for excessive accessorization.  I love that, because to be honest, I get claustrophobic rather easily; even from my own clothes!

And finally, Jeeda seems like just such a nice person!  Do you ever come across someone's blog and after some brief interaction think, "We would have the BEST time together if we ever met in person!".  That's how I imagine Jeeda.  I've never met her and only had the briefest of exchanges with her via our blogs, but I just feel like she's my kind of gal!  A woman who is so striking in her appearance as to almost be intimidating, but so warm in her communication as to be your new best friend!

And if you're doing any Christmas shopping this weekend, please check out Terri's  eBay offerings as well as Bella's treasures!  I'd be tickled to death if you checked mine out as well!


 Happy Weekend and God bless us everyone!!

  7. What a great look - so much fun to see such variety.
    Good idea for Christmas presents - some of the scarves I've bought from your Ebay store have made great presents. I hadn't planned to give then as presents, but when my daughter saw how pretty they were, she ran off with them.
