Monroe and Main Spring Graphic Print Dress Shelley Zurek Still Blonde after all these YEARS

This sheath style dress is the perfect cut for my hourglass figure. It minimizes the bust, skims over the bumps and ends at the perfect point just above the knee.

With the plethora of colors in this dress, I can choose almost any shoe, sweater or piece of jewelry in my closet and I can make the dress look totally different.  Here’s a few other very different looks.

In the elegant look above, I have turned the dress into a top, pairing it with a lined tulle skirt.  How’s that for variety?

Sweet Valentine Janska Audrey Coat Review + $165 Giveaway

[ 428 ] February 1, 2015 |

Give a Janska Coat to your Sweet Valentine!

Janska Audrey COAT

Yes, it’s 2 degrees outside!! Janska’s first ambassador, Shelley Zurek , the Chief Blonde, was provided this Janska Audrey Coat  in red ($165). In this photo, she is also wearing Clarks Black Leather Boots (similar), and Tiffany Atlas Collection earrings.

My daughter Kelly and I headed over to the Historic Holly Hotel in Holly, MI to celebrate the end of the holiday season and her heading back to her last semester of college! Her LAST first day of school! Whew!

While there we had afternoon tea and we took the time to recreate a photo from Walt’s and my wedding that took place 16 years ago! She is still my little sweetie even if she taller than me now.

Janska Audrey Coat

In order to take me into the season of love, Janska sent me this gorgeous Audrey jacket in red. The shape is an A-line Swing Coat that can be buttoned all the way up! The shirred funnel collar is fastened by an oversized faceted domed button, with four smaller matching buttons down the front. I love that it has roomy pockets and hits just above the knee!

Janska Audrey COAT

While incredibly elegant, this coat is surprisingly washable and so easy to wear. You’ll just love the variety of colors you can choose for this coat.

Janska Audrey COAT

This coat is warm, I would probably wear it for temperatures that were 30 degrees F and up. I can see the Janska Audrey working in your closet wherever you live in the US! Psst…Janska coats are US made!
