All Dressed Up for a Fair

This is the outfit I wore to the Wichita Women's Fair which features fashion, shopping, health information, cooking, shopping, and shopping. There are a lot of vendors selling all different kinds of products that they think will appeal to women. It is supposed to be a big party for women to attend and have fun.

I felt quite visible in this outfit (since most everyone else was in logo tees and sweatshirts.) The jeans are DKNY that I was a bit unsure about when I purchased them only to become obsessed with all the outfits I can create with them as a base piece. It is hard to see in these photos, but the pattern actually has some rosy purple in it. The jacket is Chico's and the top from K-Mart.

The jacket is solid purple and not two different shades as seen.

I hope you will visit Not Dead Yet Style for yet another fashionable Visible Monday with so many women who are such wonderful examples of fabulous style.

  3. I can see why you've become so fond of these jeans, Debbi - they really have a terrific flair. Harry - you look adorable when you are disobeying your mom!! : > Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday.

  4. Excellent jeans! I just got my first patterned pair recently, and I, too, was weirdly nervous about it, but now I love them. I am also admiring the arm party; if I'm going to do it up on the jewellery, I always load up my hands and wrists. Now if I could just learn to layer necklaces as well as you do, I'd be in business. :)

  5. Gotta love a girl that wears that much bling! I love it - and it's a great way for us older girls to stay on trend.

    1. It was okay. Too much stuff that was for cleaning house and not enough just fun stuff. But I enjoyed looking around.

    1. The pattern is called a crystal pattern. Maybe one of those that they use a crystal for inspiration. It is an odd pattern but I like it.

  9. Debbie, I LOVE the fact that you are dressed in that gorgeous purple jacket with the stylish jeans when the other folks are in logo sweats and jeans. Never mind your fabulous manicure and beautiful bracelets!! I hope you had a good time; it sounds like fun.

    Your hair looks great! i know you said you weren't sure, but from here it looks really good. Have you aways had light hair? You look totally natural as a blond-ish. :-)

    1. Jean, my natural color was a medium brown until I started taking steriods for my asthma then it turned really dark brown. I have colored it blond off and on for much of my life. Usually I have had it with a lot of highlights. Thanks for saying it looks like I could be a natural blondish!

  10. Patterned jeans always look like such fun, and I haven't had any for years! Maybe I should take that leap, too. They look great on you, and I love the purple jacket. Visible indeed!

  13. The jeans are very cool! I can see how you'd find a multitude of ways to style them.

  14. I'm sure that you turned heads in this outfit at the Women's Fair and inspired many. The jeans are beautiful and look great with purple and of course, your brilliant use of bling. You are radiant in these photos!

  15. Those pants are really flattering. They've been cut so the pattern gives you a strong vertical "lift." You were right to take a risk and add them to your wardrobe!

    Purple and brown are a favorite combination of mine.

  16. What a beautiful jacket. I just love how a jacket pulls everything all together. I've never really thought of outfits in three pieces before until recently. I'm jacket obsessed now. And cardigans too.
    I love your patterned pants too. Sounds like it's been sparking your outfit creativity. ;)

  17. I love that satin jacket - it's a great colour on you! Such funky pants! You are certainly working the patterned trousers trend like nobody's business, Debbi! I bet all those frumpy people at the fair were wishing they'd dressed a little better, after they saw you. :)

  19. Your outfit and jewelry are just beautiful. Love that purple. Your nail polish perfectly accents your ensemble. I bet you lit up that women's fair with your lovely smile and style.

  20. Super duper cute outfit, Debbi! I love it. I think it's my favorite look on you ever :)

  21. Visible in an awesome, super way! Everything in this outfit works together brilliantly. The bracelets are so pretty, and I am envious of your well cared for hands and nails. I have been having trouble with my nails this winter.

    I agree, your natural movement is probably a type two, which is soft and subtle.

  24. These DKNY pants look AWESOME on you... seriously. You should buy a couple more pair. Great outfit....

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow! Again! You look completely fabulous. So happy you cut a wide swath at your event. Doesn't it feel good to dress like you mean it? Good for you. With or without the subtle color that's hard to see, this outfit works a treat. You really have developed a personal style that just works and works and works ... like the Energizer Style-Bunny!

  28. I love that you were all dressed up in a sea of tees! I love the pattern on the pants. It is surprising sometimes how easy it is to remix a piece like that. Love your look. Debbie

  29. Dear Debbi,

    I've taken the liberty of nominating you to the Liebster Award. I've follows your blog for some time now, and you've inspired me so many times. Your jewellery collection must be like Aladin's cave, and I love how you combine it all into beautiful, visible ensembles. Of course it's all up to you if you want to participate or not, but I do hope you will!

  31. I like totally and agree. And I think that in order to be comfortable with your style is to wear it more often. So wear your style to the lab on days that you don't have to do anything bloody, muddy or otherwise gross!

Sounds like you were too cool for what that fair was offering. Next time, it's the Avant Garde Women's Fair you have to visit.
