A Rose by Any Other Name

Three things brought this outfit together.
The first thing is my mothers age defying skin. If I told you to guess her age I put the other house up that none of you would guess anywhere near the right age. That comes from maintaining a healthy diet and never being a substance abuser (not judging). If you want to drink, enjoy responsibly. I know you hear that a lot but it does wonders for your body health which in turn does wonders for your outward appearance. I'm not going to tackle the topic of smoking because of how controversial it is.

Live your life the way you want to but be prepared for the consequences.
The second thing that made this a good outfit actually has nothing to do with the clothes and everything to do with the woman. A woman wears her confidence in a similar way that she would wear her handbag. She flaunts it around those without it, she uses it as a facilitator for everything that she will need to get done for the day and when she senses danger she holds onto it for dear life. If you aren't confident in yourself no matter what you are wearing you will not be comfortable and it will show.
Eat well, feel good, look great.
The third and final aspect of the outfit that made it a hit is the accessories. I tell you countless times that accessories can make or break an outfit and in this case they made the outfit. The burnt red ribbon tied around the waist brought out the red in the dress. The pearls drew attention to her neckline and the rose was the icing on the cake.
