What I Wore: Influenced by Blogger Friend Megan!

Here I am in a very simple knit dress by Lands End, in the Color-of-the-Season, burgundy. It's a great background for any number of accessories like bright scarves, major belts, necklaces, tights, and more. It's a nifty, easy dress for work as it goes in the washer and dries without a wrinkle. It's not high-fashion by any stretch, but a solid basic.

Then I introduced a very cool obi belt, created by my blogger friend Megan of Megan Mae Daily. She makes these belts from men's ties, in all manner of colors and patterns. This one, the "Lynne" is just perfection for my Merlot dress.

Megan also introduced me, via her blog, to Cydwoq shoes and boots. Oddest name, eh? These are my first but not last pair of Cyds. I found them at a great price on eBay. They're wonderfully comfortable and have such a stylish design! Thanks Megan, times two  : >

Feeling groovy in simple dress and statement accessories.

You've been inspired by fellow bloggers, yes? It's one of the ways we weave happily into each other's wardrobes!


  1. I love Catherine's Not Dressed as a Lamb blog.  She has such and eye for color I'm flat out trying to copy her ( not not doing very well, I might add .. lol)


  2. what a great look and how fabulous are those shoes
    gotta go check out that brand
    i am inspired everyday by other bloggers!

  3. Hot diggity, Patti! I would take that outfit piece for piece and wear it. The Cydwoqs are sooo gorgeous. I love how the print looks a bit spider-weby. I know I love all my cydwoqs, I can even wait until my next pair! You got an awesome pair. I haven't tried any of their heels, but I hope they're as comfy as my flat versions.

    I need to get crackin' on the new obi belts for spring. I have 9 new ones just waiting to be put together. 

  4. That dress and belt are a perfect pair. 

    Those boots are wild. I've never heard of that brand before but they remind me a little bit of Fluevogs.


  5. I love that the name is pronounced "sidewalk" - and yet spelled so oddly. I discovered this brand from another blogger and also had to get myself a pair. Their boots are so divine! 

    I love this dress on you, Patti! 

  6. I've never heard of these shoes, so I'll be googling them to see what's what ;)  Fashion inspo from other bloggers is one of my fav things about reading blogs--  love it!  Keeps my creative juices fashionably flowing!  (Sounds a little gross once 'juices' and 'flowing' are in the same sentence lolzz!)

  7. I didn't know it was pronounced "sidewalk"! Thanks for that, Sheila. I thought it was just some Welsh name.

    This outfit looks great, Patti. You've inspired me, because I could use a dress like this!

    I'm also inspired by so many bloggers to look for things online, although I haven't tried that yet. I still like to see something before I buy it, but I might have to start looking at eBay for clothes.

    Before beginning my blog I had purchased a lot of ties from ebay and had pinned together combinations to make these obi belts as I love the colors and patterns they add.  Blogging and homesxhooling took me away but by spring I am going to have some made!!!! 
     Thanks for the reminder and I love this dress color on you,

  9. I am constantly inspired by fellow bloggers! Isn't it wonderful?!
    Love this frock, and the belt is divoon!X

  10. I am always inspired by other blogs. Today I am wearing a boys' shirt inspired by your recent wearing of a man's shirt.

  11. That's a lovely outfit & Megan's belts are fab!

  12. Gorgeous outfit, Patti! I like the addition of another print with the awesome booties. Megan has fantastic style, and is a total doll besides. :)

  13. Pam@Over50feeling40January 24, 2013 at 8:28 AM

    Love this look, Patti...especially the belt with the dress!  Fellow bloggers like you inspire me every day!

  14. The obi belt from Megan really looks great with your dress and those funky little boots are fabulous!
    Sidewalk? Well, who would have guessed THAT's how you pronounce it?!
    I am inspired by fellow bloggers all the time - not necessarily in terms of emulating their look, but definitely in terms of confidence-boosting and friendship and a sense of shared community. xxx

  15. Patti, this outfit it TOO CUTE!! And those shoes... You inspire me to want more. I just checked out the site, AWWWWW, I cannot spend any money right now. There isn't any boot money available. Maybe next month. :-)

  16. That is a lovely dress. You look beautiful!

  17. I find more inspiration infellow bloggers than anything in a fashion magazine!!

    Love your outfit and those booties are amazing!! So cute!

  18. A wonderful obi-belt for this nice colored dress! I love how the obi-belt makes the dress unique. Your boots are gorgeous too!
