Modest Swimwear

bc93ebaaf24bb9222da3aea67be34d26

Hello lovely,

Do you detest putting on a swimsuit as much as I do? Being a Christian, and a role model for my teenaged niece, makes finding  modest swim wear a challenge. I know I am not the only woman out there who feels this way.

So where do we begin the search? I went to my old reliable friend Pinterest and found some really pretty suits that give you great coverage.

This first suit is a one piece that is slightly ruched  in the mid section  which helps camoflauge. This beautiful Lake Blue beauty can be found here Rosegal

This next suit is actually a one piece. I truly love the deep red wrapped tie top that floats away from the body.  You can see more here Liligal

Just looking at beach waves soothes my soul. I can feel their ebb and flow. And hear their crashes and whispers.

I love shades of blue. All of them are so soothing. Blue reminds me of the ocean.

Sadly I can’t remember where I found this lovely photo. The details of this Victorian style blouse are stunning.

Words to live by

Hey dolls,

I am encourager by nature. I am also an optimist. In a word, I am an eternal “cheerleader”. But if I am honest sometimes even a cheerleader needs something or someone to lift her spirits. I hope you find inspiration in these quotes I found on Pinterest.

The Lisbon Collection from OPI

Hello beautiful!

I am so happy to share the latest nail polish colors from OPI inspired by the beautiful city of Lisbon.

OPI Lisbon Collection

From the amazing architecture to the bold colors of the city come an enchanted assemblage of nail lacquers that fill one with hope.

The limited edition consists of 12 colors that come in three variations : Infinite Shine , Nail Lacquer, and GelColor.

The colors above row by row include…

Row 1: Made It to the Seventh Heaven, Lisbon Wants Moor OPI, You’ve Got Nata On Me, Tagus in That Selfie.

Row 2: No Turning Back From Pink Street, A Red-Vival City, Now Museum, Now You Don’t,  We Seafood and We Eat It.

Row 3: Sun, Sea and Sand In My Pants, Closer Than You Might Belem, Tile Art to Warm Your Heart, Suzi Chases Portugeese.

What I love about these colors is their versatility.  You can add the bold  mosaic inspired shade of Tile Art to Warm Your Heart or metalic red Now Museum, Now You Don’t to a modern bohemian look like the one I created below.

The classic look below calls for understated nails. The soft golden rose of Made it To the Seventh Hill, neutral Suzi Chases Portugeese or the  pale peach of Lisbon Wants Moor OPI would be meet these needs.

Overall I find this collection very wearable. In exciting colors to compliment all skin shades, there is no guessing games. You can try on here. OPI Try On Studio

My favorite color in this collection is the rose gold Made It to The Seventh Heaven which is a MUST HAVE for Spring 2018.

One Year Anni!

Hello everyone!!

I am so excited to share my one year anniversary of Stylewise By Debra on WordPress.

98f20ccf7c8ea3734b0d32e8ec97f155.jpg

This past year was a learning year.  I not only learned more about blogging,  but I learned how to have more faith and courage.  And I continue to do so as I embrace new experiences.

954087b11b76b42b65e65a1e41160e9c.jpg

Along the way I have met some wonderful women through social media as well as other bloggers who I now call dear friends. We chat regularly, pray and encourage one another.

4c2eec260cca13ccf32ff73a009688de.jpg

I have learned that it’s not about competing with other fashion bloggers but rather about making myself happy. I don’t necessarily have an audience in mind anymore. I just want to share what I love.

6205e4935b7a6730d231c986458bcd8c.jpg

I have decided this is going to be a good year and one that I will allow God to lead me. Am I scared? A little bit. New things are always scary at first. But I know and trust my Lord. And I am confident in  Him.

IMG_20180124_212532_546.jpg

This year Stylewise may go in new directions. I would like to incorporate more home decor,  DIYs, and faith posts. But don’t worry.  Stylewise by Debra will always be about fashion as well.

Let’s make this another beautiful year together!

How to Wear Ultra Violet

y (1).jpg

Wearing this bold color need not be daunting. Add the 2018 color of the year by mixing it with neutrals such as blacks and greys or with prints such as houndstooth.

The above style set shows how you can add ultra violet to your work wardrobe. Adding touches of black by way of shoes, a belt and  a necklace keeps it lowkey. The cape adds a pop of color on a grey winter day to keep you warm.

y.jpg

This second set was created to share how you can use ultra violet in a print. Draw out the other colors of the print (in this case the pink and cream) by using other clothing items and accessories. This will highlight the violet in your outfit.

Playing with color should not be frightening. I hope these sets inspire you to step outside your comfort zone and try this beautiful color.

*All of the above sets were created  by Stylewise by Debra. Feel free to print any of my sets for  style inspiration or ask me how to get a set made especially for you. I am always happy to help.

Statement Coats

I believe a coat should be functional as well as a fashion statement. More than that, it should say something about the individual wearing it.  Here’s a fun way to choose your new outer wear.

Personality types & coats….

The Realist….something structured and classic keep in her stylish and warm. Military style suits her well.

The Dreamer… she’s mooning for her Prince Charming as she steps out in a pretty  princess cut coat.

The Rocker…moto jackets and animal prints are a MUST HAVE.

The Bohemian…. this girl’s a free spirit.  She’s not afraid of the cold. Fun faux fur caresses her.

Preppy… think collegiate. Plaids rule!

e594ebc47892bd84e9c64e08ff8f6dd5

Artsy….she’s creative so what better way to express herself than a cape. Better yet when she adds a brooch for flair!

Sporty….Winter sports are calling her.  Grabbing a puffer jacket & matching gloves and hat & she’s off to the slopes!
