BLACK FRIDAY OUTFIT POST #2 : BAD @SS GRANNY


HAPPY BLACK FRIDAY EVERYBODY !!!

THIS LOOK I CALL "BAD-ASS GRANNY" ....
A SIMPLE COMFY TEE SHIRT DRESS, DENIM JACKET AND PILES-O-PEARLS ;)
Plus a rhinestone brooch is a must for any Chic Granny.
ADD A DIYed BUTTON BERET, (My most favorite thingy this winter, you'll be seeing her bunches :)  BUT FREAK THEM OUT WITH DOTTED TIGHTS AND SLOUCHY BOOTS ...
 ( Don't forget the shades - they add the right attitude, plus hide those tired poofy eyes ;)

NOW THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF 'GRANNY CHIC' LOOKS ARE THE RED LIP-STICKS THAT RUN INTO THE GRANNY LIP CRACKS (Skip that liner, or it won't pack the embarrassed teenager punch...) And WA LA ! Your shopping partner won't be anywhere near you, so you can sneak and buy their gifts right under their noses ;)  Lipstick teeth are a plus, too !
( Notice it ? )
MWA ! HA HA !!!
YA WANNA GO, LITTLE GIRL? I WILL HAVE THAT LAST $20.00 'CASHMERE' SWEATER !

NOW SINCE BLACK IS THE 'SCHMOE' OF THE COLOR WORLD LATELY, I AM HERE TO DEFEND HER HONOR WITH A FEW NEAT SNIPPETS ON WHY BLACK IS SO GREAT ;)

"Black is practical. It always looks
clean and fairly neat.It's certainly
simple. It's cool. It
also makes you look thinner."

The Effects of the Color Black -
How black affects us physically and mentally:
feeling inconspicuous,
a restful emptiness,
mysterious,
evoking a sense of potential and possibility.
How cool is that ?

"BLACK' BY PEARL JAM ~ "BLACK CAT" BY JANET JACKSON ~ "BLACK AND WHITE" BY THREE DOG NIGHT  ....   NEED I SAY MORE ?


I HAVE TONS OF IDEAS AND BLACK CLOTHING ITEMS.
 IF THERE'S ANYTHING YOU'D LIKE TO SEE 'REVAed' LET ME KNOW ;)  
 I'LL GIVE IT MY BEST SHOT ...  ( WARNING: I DON'T DO SIMPLE WELL ;)
 MAYBE I SHOULD GIVE THAT A GO ;)


Attire:
Beret: Jacklyn Smith, DIY buttons ~ Jacket: AK, Sears,clx. ~ Dress:? ~ Tights: Merona
Boots: Sears 1/2/off, Shades: Foster Grants, drug store. ~  Beads: Vintage to all-over-the-place :)

LOVE that beret! You look great in the layered necklaces; works wonderfully with the simple LBD and jean jacket. Fresh, not frumpy granny.

"you don't do simple well," LMAO!
