What I Wore to the Fashion Show...And Other Fun Things!

Hi everyone!  I hope all had a wonderful weekend...things are certainly crazy about my house right now!  



I rarely shop for a special event...however, this year I wanted to look stylish, fun and confident for Fashion Week San Antonio!  So, I stopped by DILLARDS last week and found the great look I needed! (It almost became a party with several salespeople joining in the fun.)



This jacket by IC COLLECTION really surprised me...the assymetrical lines made it more flattering than I expected it to be and I loved the gold and red, oriental design.  You can find it on the link provided; however, I noticed it is only in Plus Sizes online.  I purchased a Misses in-store. 
I was super honored when fashion writer, Michael Quintanilla, from our SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS NEWS wanted to photograph me for a street style column he does!  He loved the jacket and these STEVE MADDEN GOLD FLATS...perfect for holiday parties coming up!  Michael confirmed that Dillards is on his must-shop list when looking for something special. He previewed the next fashion event HERE.
Since this was a blogger event, I needed a large bag for the camera and notebook and pens...so I went to the clearance aisle in the handbag section and found this beautiful BIG BUDDHA bag at a great markdown!  I needed this lighter color in my wardrobe any way.  

Thanks DILLARDS...I had so much fun with your friendly salespeople putting together just the right look for the occasion!

Now, please join me with other fashion bloggers at VISIBLE MONDAY (Yes, Patti has returned from NYC).  And PASSION FOR FASHION!  and FASHIONABLY EMPLOYED! and SHARE-In-STYLE!
I want to thank all the ladies who host MONDAY MINGLE.  I always participate and noticed they have begun to offer a monthly prize package!  Well, I won the October package...so much fun!  It included accessories from JJILL, a perfect notepad for blogging, and a beautiful umbrella!  I will use everything!  Thanks so much...and  now check out MONDAY MINGLE!



ALSO, REMEMBER FASHION FLASH!!
It 's time for Fashion Flash...the best posts of selected beauty and fashion blogger for midlife and beyond!
Our hostess this week is Kari of FAB OVER FORTY, one site you should go to for up to the minute beauty information! Now enjoy, FASHION FLASH!


Before you leave, make sure you have registered to win the EYE MAKEUP REMOVER FROM IOMA PARIS and the sweater from FOXCROFT!  You will find the links to both in the right sidebar. And, San Antonio, plan to see me on Saturday from 1-4 (time changed slightly) and there will be prizes given every hour, refreshments, skin care analysis, and try the products!

Have a fabulous beginning to your week!  I know many will be facing really cold weather, so stay warm and healthy!

  21. Pam, I can't tell you how much I love your outfit top to toe - perfect styling! The pieces are wonderful in their own right and together they combine very well - you look comfortable too. I have a weakness for pale bags and yours looks dreamy. And that jacket is the ideal statement piece that you can wear often - if ever you get tired of it (can't imagine it) please, please let me be the first to know! :-)
