.... a sunset summer stroll ... and. a giveaway...

This silk patio dress by DKNY has become one of my summer staples.

Last weekend when I was in LA doing some vintage shopping and supply buying...
I spotted this beauty!

I was on the hunt for something in natural material...
that would integrate perfectly into my summer wardrobe.

I also needed it to be in proportion for my stature...
being a large women...
I needed my 'clutch' to be on the large size too.

Although the handle really takes this purse out of the true definition of a clutch...
It functions the same for me...
and it goes with most all of my summer evening staples...

and has enough room for everything I need for a night out.
The fact that it is vintage means I won't see it coming and going on other's also :)

Speaking of fabulous accessories....

  21. That is EXACTLY why I like vintage, too!

  22. Hi Tamera,
    I'm a long time follower but have never taken the time to comment. Sorry! I love your style and creativity - it is so inspiring. Your posts are always uplifting and refreshing and honest.

    Have a wonderful week and please accept me as an entrant for the beautiful necklace.


  23. I "liked" you on Facebook and I do like your style very much. The necklace is gorgeous.

  24. I just 'liked' your facebook page. Love the flowy maxi dress and the shoot is so pretty with the wind blowing.
    Lovely to meet another fashion blogger mommy.

  25. I love the hat with the dress. Great combination.

  26. I love turquoise and crosses, so you see this necklace was made for me!

  27. What a great story this assemblage of clothing tells, from the oh so feminine dress and the vintage - 20's? - bag, to the jaunty addition of a gentleman's panama. You are the style queen, Tamera.
    And I love the necklace give away. Please put my name in the bran tub!

  28. Hello, lovely Tamera! Pale neutrals, warm to cool, have such a gounded feel to them, don't you think? Such a beautiful, flowy dress just says summer. In the deepest, Lauren Bacall voice! The right shade of beige-tan-taupe is just so .... CLASSY! You haz it!
    (And, of course, your jewelry rocks ... no pun intended.)

  29. your clutch is timeless. i love how you've paired it with stunning bracelets and sunglasses. you're an inspiration to those of us dedicated to aging gracefully with beauty, style and glamour. xo

  30. You look gorgeous! I can't believe how much room the tote has!

  31. The purse is FAB and you are absolutely right - nobody else will be passing by with it!! That's what I ADORE about thrifting - the look I create is on trend BUT all my own!! PS, I'd LOVE to win this FUN piece of Tamera Beardsley jewelry!!
