It’s been a while since I’ve hosted a giveaway so when local retailer, Shoes on a Shoestring pitched the idea to me ~ I was ALL IN!

Now, the only downside to this giveaway is that you must live in the SOAS service area, as they do not have an online store.  But all of you followers outside of the service area, in other states and other countries, for that matter ~ Yes, y’all.  My blog does have that kind of reach  ~ please do not fret.  I will have another giveaway coming very, very soon.

So, the fun folks at Shoes on a Shoestring are giving one lucky More Than Turquoise follower a $50 gift card that can be used towards anything in their stores.  SOAS has great shoes for women, men and children, as well as LOTS of accessories to choose from.

Here are a few of my SOAS favorites that currently reside in my closet:

I love this menswear inspired pair of loafers from Rocket Dog.  I mean, let’s face it.  It’s not too often that something leads the conversation when I’m also wearing red fingerless leather gloves.

This animal print wedge, also from Rocket Dog,  surprisingly makes my clydesdale-esque feet look waaay smaller than they actually are.

I met my husband for a quick cocktail at Nativo Lodge before we attended an evening event that would also include dancing.  This picture was taken PRE-cabbage patch moves.  I blame the booties.

soas coll5

These super cute slip-ons from BZees beg me to wear them daily.

soas coll4

And these Jessica Simpson studded booties never blend into the surroundings.  That’s why I love them!

So how do you  your spouse or your friends or… qualify for and enter this FAB giveaway?  Just follow these easy instructions:

  • You must live in the local SOAS service area ~ as the $50 gift card is only valid in their stores.  See their locations here.
  • Enter the following in the comments section of this blog post: SOAS
  • This giveaway will close on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 11:59PM PST.  The randomly selected winner will be notified via email.

That’s it.  Good Luck, Everyone!  :)

Back In Time

When was the last time you went to a show at the beautiful, historic Kimo Theatre?  I was there recently and after seeing the fabulous stage,

KS Coll

and venturing up to the balcony, then

walking the stairways and halls (with those AMAZING wall murals) …

kStarColl… the entire venue really takes you back in time.

I’ve always been attracted to women’s fashion from the late 1920’s, early 30’s.  I think I would have fit right in with all those well-dressed attendees of the Kimo Theatre back in the day.

I own a very special 1930’s full skirt pattern that belonged to my grandmother and the hemline could fall right below the knee, right above the ankle or somewhere in-between. I have always wanted to use her pattern to make her skirt for myself BUT … since I sew

Ponder Free

So ~ as I pondered whether I should have yummy huevos rancheros or an exceptionally yummy carne adovada burrito for breakfast from GARDUÑOS at Old Town,  I didn’t ponder whatsoever as to how I should accessorize my outfit.


Since I was dressed fairly casually, I knew that by adding any jewelry from Vedeli Designs would add interest and just the right amount of zhoosh to what I was wearing.

The jewelry did the trick, as did, you know …

den coin collcoin444my sandals.

So, if you’d like to add fun interest to your outfits as well, I’ve got some great local news for you!

Mark Your Calendars for Friday, February 27 from 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM as Diva D’Luxe will be having their monthly Sip and Shop and will have new pieces from Vedeli Designs for you to try on and purchase.  AND, on Friday, February 27 only, you will receive 15% off Vedeli Designs jewelry.

Designer, Mary Ann Saville, will be in attendance so be sure to ask her to share the story behind her Spanish Treasures Collection (which I am mainly wearing) as it is quite fascinating and has a wonderful piece of New Mexico history attached to it.


I’m planning on being there …  as soon as I run off that burrito.  :)

It Started With The Dress

Recently boohoo reached out to me and asked if there were any style icons from the past that have truly inspired me and, if so, might I be able to put together a style icon inspired look that included fab items from boohoo?

OK.  Well ~ this was kind of cosmically weird, as I was, in fact, considering purchasing this dress from boohoo AND my style icon is (and will always be) the Grande Dame of Fashion: Coco Chanel.

Is the Universe talkin’ to me or what?

Everyone needs a classic black dress and my dress was only $20!  Yes … $20. Pinky swear.

boohoo is a global online fashion retailer and has an immense selection of dresses to choose from, along with oodles of other on-trend items for women and men.

But let’s keep going with this Chanel Inspired Style Icon look.


Firstly, I decided to head back to Casa Esencia for my photos because a beautiful outfit demands a beautiful venue and it was important that I do Ms. Chanel proud.

Then ~ I selected from boohoo these c/o cuffs, these c/o pearl earrings, this c/o FAB clutch and my favorite accessory of the entire outfit ~ this c/o bow tie.   (the shoes and pearls I already owned)


So, do I think I put together an outfit that Chanel herself would approve of?   I’m sayin’ #NailedIt! 

Who’s your Style Icon?

The Deals

Real Talk Now.  Yes ~ I absolutely could have posted outfit pictures of me on today’s blog post  (because we know my blog simply doesn’t have enough pictures of moi on it)  but I felt it was far more important to share some of the many smokin’ deals that are currently available online.  Whether it’s because the season is nearing the end, that today is Presidents’ Day or because the The Oscars are just around the corner  ~ these deals will not disappoint.
