“I wanted to dress more creatively,”
she said.  “If you want people to follow
you on an adventure, a black suit’s not going to cut it.”  – Umber Ahmad
This quote jumped off the pages of “O” Magazine‘s May issue.  The feature is
titled, “New Life, New Look” and introduces us to five women who have been
through recent personal makeovers.  Ahmad has gone from the dark suits of Wall Street, to the fun of children’s
programming and opening a bakery….and,  I
love her quote!!
Now, I am not anti-black in any wardrobe, but color gives us all a joyful way to mix things up!  I do not believe that there is any profession
any longer where a ban on color is the rule….if you are surrounded by dark
suits, maybe it is time to be more visible, and shake things up a bit!!
Spring and Summer give us all great
excuses to shine bright.  If you would
like more ideas, just go to visit the ladies of VISIBLE MONDAY!!  and MONDAY MINGLE!!….also, “O”
Magazine’s theme this month is HOW TO GET BETTER WITH AGE….you might want to
pick up a copy of this as well!! 

This dress was featured on the cover of a recent Lane Bryant catalog, but
just hit the racks in SA last Friday.  I just happened to be in the store looking for
a couple of special event dresses, because the sale was a BOGO sale.  The minute
they put it out, three were immediately sold.  I felt bad that I wasn’t one of the many who called
the store for days looking for the dress…but I do love it for summer and I am happy to have it!
The jacket is also Lane Bryant!!  The bracelet and shoes are Stein Mart!
Anyone up for an adventure??
