Happy Birthday, Angie!

I have two outfits with high happiness. Neither is news to anyone here, but both show evidence of Angie's influence on my wardrobe. 

Outfit 1: The first photo of Angie I saw featured her fab pixie and a denim jacket worn with a fancy skirt or dress. I had worn my own hair short for most of my life, but I'd never owned a denim jacket. Instantly, I could see its possibilities, and this was one of my first purchases when I joined YLF. I've been wearing this exact jacket ever since. :)

I biked to my friend's place in white sneakers. Culottes. And the blooms on my top make me very happy. 

Outfit 2: You've all seen before. Dress was an Angie recommendation. Red is my colour of the year. MOVE was my word of the year. This dress encapsulates both. 

Thank you, Angie, for general inspiration, specific recommendations, and most of all for your joyful, practical, positive, inclusive attitude towards personal style and community-building. You are one in a million. Here's hoping the next 50 years are as golden as those fields in your photo! 

And I've ordered some sun up for this afternoon. Here's hoping! :)

    So great! I feel like that dress is the new version of the Nine West "Magic Dress" we all had some years ago!

  • Laura replied 1 year ago

    Gorgeous Suz, and such a fitting tribute to Angie's stylish influence!

    Lovely outfits and a nice tribute.

    Both outfits are great!  I especially love the red dress on you.  I know you love blue, but red looks wonderful, too.

  • Firecracker replied 1 year ago

    Both outfits are divine, Suz! Those culottes are so cool--maybe I should say they are a lotta cool. Your joy shines through in these stylish outfits.

    Love how you’ve matched your outfits to the beautiful floral backgrounds. Vibrant and joyful as always beautiful Suz!

    KILLER Gorgeous! 

    Suz, that first photo of you is AMAZING! You look really radiant and beautiful :)

    As for the outfit in #3 - I'm waving to my twin!

    THANK YOU for your awfully kind and gracious words. I hope to live up to them one day.

    Denim jacks are just the “magic”. That pulls it all together !
    Both outfits are  Gorgeous on you !

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Suz, beautiful outfits and the thought that went into them, beautiful tribute and beautiful you.

  • Bijou replied 1 year ago

    Wow, you are so beautiful Suz and have such a wonderful signature style. What a beautiful birthday tribute. I wore a denim jacket in my University years, but not subsequently until YLF and now I have three. They are definite wardrobe workhorses and allow me to make my dresses look more casual, the magic power of Angie’s influence.

    Your outfits are alway among my favorites and these are no exception. Whenever I see your WIWs, I want one of each, please. And your generous, kind, and insightful words alway brighten my day.

  • AJ replied 1 year ago

    Yes, Angie has had a positive influence on my outlook on pixies, denim jackets, white sneakers, and dresses.  You wear these well!  Love the floral top too!  Pretty pics "in the wild."  : )

  • Jane replied 1 year ago

    Lovely pics! The FP dress looks so fresh with the white denim jacket.

    Big fan here of your colorful, patterned outfits and your thoughtful posts. You look fantastic.

  • Karie replied 1 year ago

    Sweet sister! You look super beautiful in these outfits. Red is such a great color for you.

  • Adriana replied 1 year ago

    I know what you mean with the influence. And step by step you learn your style. I am talking about myself, you are there already. It all looks wonderful.

  • lisa p replied 1 year ago

    I think I like red on you as much as I do blue!  You were one of the first forum members I latched on to, and I'm so glad I did.  You inspire me with every post in terms of your consistency, positive attitude and willingness to help and participate .

    You look lovely in both outfits. I was smitten by that red dress, too, but by the time I decided to order it had sold out. 

  • Joyce B replied 1 year ago

    Great outfits and perfect background.

  • Suz replied 1 year ago

    Thank you all for your incredibly kind and thoughtful words. It was fun to dress for Angie's birthday. If it had been warmer, I'd have worn a different outfit for a change (the long sleeve dress and the denim jackets are getting a real workout in our cool PNW summer this year! Oh  well. Another time!
