Fashion Favorites for Summer 2016

I got good response to my fashion posting from yesterday so here is another.  These are a few on my summer favorites.  These are items that I bought in past years and they are still great for summer.

Chinese Laundry black strappy sandals

These were an impulse buy that I found at Macy’s in Independence, MO.  I like these a lot and I have gotten a lot of use out of them.  They are kind of difficult to wear because of the way the straps are situated but I got use to them.  I don’t recall the price because I’ve had these for a few years but I’m sure it was pretty moderate.  I’m thinking they were around $40.


Bulova watch:

I love the white watch trend that’s been going on for a few seasons.  The face is quite large which is also on trend and I love the gold.  I think the watch retails for around $200 but I bought it from a store I was working for so I got a great discount.  I love the gold details.  It was available at Helzberg but I don’t know if it is still available.  It was purchased last year.

Orly nail polish:

I think neutral cosmetic shades are great for summer.  I don’t really like neutral lipsticks because I have a dark complexion and it just gets lost but I can use a neutral nail polish.  This one is called Prince Charming #20715.  I bought it at Sally Beauty Supply in Kansas City, MO.  It was on sale for around $5.

Liz Claiborne sandals:

I like these sandals because they are styled like Tory Burch sandals.  I can not afford Tory Burch sandals and even if I could I don’t know that the asking price for her sandals are worth it to me.  I bought these at JCPenney last summer.  I had a coupon for them so I only paid about $12-$15 for them.

The Price of Peace – Shannon in Kansas City

For the world to have peace what would the sacrifice be?

Would we need to humble ourselves and show some humility?

Or should we stop being lead by greed and do more to help those in need?

Should we take a moment to understand a stranger’s point of view?

Or maybe open our hearts to someone different and new?


Be gracious and patient and loving and kind

Try it and you may be surprised to find

The price of peace is easier to pay than the retribution for hate on judgement day.
