Visible Monday - Silver and rose edition

Visible Monday #25, my goodness, how time flies! For this VM, I am wearing a sparkly silver gray sweater and my rose color jeans. I have been planning on wearing this sweater for quite a while and today was the day.

Earlier this fall, I saw a silver metallic sweater from H&M that I just loved. So, I started on the hunt for something similar. I found this one at the 1/2 of 1/2 price store. It's a Ralph Lauren from last season that had a couple of pulls on it which I fixed with a snag puller. The jeans are from Chico's. The one thing I don't like about Chico's jeans is that the sizing is inconsistent. I would love to be able to buy a pair of the same style in the same size every time.  I got these in an online sale for an extra 30% off. By the time I got them, the smaller size was sold out. I like the color and I can probably take them in some to make them fit a bit better.  Why oh why can manufacturers not make a specific size the same size every time?

Sweater: Ralph Lauren
Blouse: Coldwater Creek
Jeans: Chico's
Scarf: Chico's
Booties: Not Too Coy

My nail polish for the last couple of days is Revlon Carbonite.

I am having so much fun with nail polish. The polish I am wearing right now is Revlon Carbonite. It is a dark pewter metallic color and has tiny silver and gold sparkles.  It is supposed to be a duplicate for the Chanel Graphite polish. It is certainly close from the swatches I have seen and for 1/5th the price, a darn good one. So far, no chips and only tip wear. That is considerably better than I got from the Chanel polish or the OPI. I think that my nails are a colorful accessory to my outfit. I do realize that I can now spend time on polish since my retirement. If I were still working, I probably would not be polishing as it takes me a long time to do a manicure on myself.


Please visit Not Dead Yet Style to see what all the Visible Monday women are wearing today. If you haven't joined us before, please consider taking part in this fun weekly posting. By participating, I have met some ladies whose style I greatly admire that I might not have discovered without it.

First, I would like to say Thank you for your nice comments about one of my other passions Native American and Western art. I decided not to post any more pictures of my home decor. If you are interested in seeing more of it, please email me privately at sheaccessorizeswell @ cox.net and I will send you pictures of more of my collection. I know everyone is not interested in Native American art and I don't want to post things people are not interested in.

  2. Great look, Debbi - I love the silver with rose jeans. I do share your pain about sizing consistency -- I think there is none! Chico's pieces are cut to fit more loosely, which is great, except for jeans. These do look great on you, and the shoes are a wonderful touch. Love the nails too!

    Thanks so much for linking up to Visible Monday and have a great day!

  4. I think I know exactly which sweater from H&M you mean, because I almost bought it myself before punking out, due to my sparkle-fear. The RL one looks smashing on you!

  7. Pink and gray is a favorite combination of mine. I think it's nice to have a switch up. A gal can't live in black the entire winter season!

  18. Love the color of that polish! I find that the cheaper brands do usually last longer than the more expensive ones! I use a brand called Sinful Colors that I get at Walgreens for $0.99!! I need to invest in a snag puller. Never knew one existed! Kiah
