Good Morning! Are you guys as messed up on the day as I am? I could swear today is Tuesday, and that I need about five more hours in the day. I thought once you became an empty nester and then grand parent, you had more time in life. I am busier than I have ever been! I am hoping it keeps me young!!! So here we are, Chic at Every Age, wearing this cute slip dress. I was a little hesitant slipping this baby on, but decided to take it way down to a very casual look.

I love the way Brooke (One Small Blonde, 20’s) and Sam (Style of Sam, 30’s) styled it with the short and long vests over it. I didn’t even think about that, but it would have totally worked for me. When I saw the dress, I immediately got intimidated. The length was above the knee and the front of the dress was a bit low, so I decided to put a white tee under it and become “Sporty Spice”!  Heather ( So Heather, 40’s) got creative and turned the dress around to put the crisscross in the front. It looked amazing that way, and she looks uber sexy in it!

I really do like the way I am wearing it. Tee underneath, scarf and these great leopard print calf hair sneaks (I am on a leopard kick right now for some reason!). I just figured at my age, it needed something either under or over it. There is no reason at “our” age, we can’t wear something like this. We just have to get a bit creative!  There is this great store in Nashville (also in Austin, New Orleans, Covington, and Hattiesburg), called UAL (United Apparel Liquidators). When I am in Nashville, I try to hit it every couple of weeks. You would not believe what I have found! The Isabel Marant sneakers I am wearing, were purchased there (think I might have paid $125). I just bought a Prabal Gurung dress valued at $2150 for $395! I have seen some amazing pieces over the course of the year I have been going. If you live or are traveling to any of these places, I highly recommend sticking your head in this store. It’s hit or miss, but when you hit it, it’s amazing!

That’s it for today! Hope you have a great day!!! xx
