This months theme is Silk Satin, whatever you prefer! We think it was a difficult theme as there are not many entries. Hope to see more of you next month. But let’s take a look at our silk items!
Silk or Satin
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?
It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Silk/Satin!
First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge
This red silk/satin maxi skirt was absolutely a Good Buy. I was hesitant to purchase it because I was unsure how to style such a skirt, but it was super inexpensive at a consignment shop so I went for it. And now I love it! Especially paired with contrasting items like a graphic tee in the summer or a plaid shirt in the winter. I hope to find lots of fun ways to style this satin skirt.
I picked this satin skull print dress from Rosegal and I didn’t check the measurements properly. While I absolutely love this dress, it is about 5 sizes too big. You can’t tell from the photo but it is being held on by about half a dozen safety pins in the back. I haven’t yet decided if I should just say Good-Bye to it or invest in alterations

Lesley is wearing a silk blouse. It’s a faux silk, and such a wonderful color!! I love how she paired it with brown for the fall season.
And here is how I wear silk!
A lovely red silk skirt that is so light, you hardly feel you’re wearing it. A Good Buy!
Oh I felt so sexy in this silk/satin wrap dress. It’s the feeling that silk gives you on your body! But it is to small now. Still it was a Good Buy.
We hope you liked this months Silk/Satin outfits!
December’s theme will be: Faux Fur!
