Visible Monday


I'm linking up with Patti today over at Not Dead Yet Style. ~isn't that an interesting name for a blog~  Patti feels like that as long as women are not dead that they can always have a sense of fashion and flair.  And, hey, I couldn't agree more. I had a good time preparing this post.

I'm going to share with you how I have taken one very simple top and given it several different looks. 
Last September I was in  downtown Grapevine, Texas browsing through shops while Hubby was in a meeting.  I came across a top that didn't have much hanger appeal at all, but the feel of the fabric and the style "spoke" to me.  I didn't want to take the time to try it on, so I just grabbed it and bought it.

 The top is by PIKO.  I know, a very strange name, but regardless, I have fallen in love with these and now own about 6 of them in different colors.  They range in price from $29 to $36, wash like a dream and give one so many options as to how they want to wear them.



Here I am  wearing one very simply.  I always wear a tank under them because they do have a big neck and a tank keeps my bra straps from showing and it adds a little interest to the neck. I am wearing it with black jeggings with my black suede cowgirl boots.  You can see that it is not a fitted top but neither is it a loose and baggy top.  It's slinky and very feminine. ~in my estimation~


I added a wide black belt for another look.
Here I've added a scarf with the belt and love this look.
I found this sweater shrug on big time sale at Chico's and thought it was the perfect topper and dressed things up a bit. And, I could have still worn the belt with this combination for another look.
It really is amazing what you can do with one piece of clothing and the many looks that you can create.  And, that's my
Visible Monday!

Note to locals: you can find the Piko tops at Bayou Gypsy and River Outfitters in Monroe.
