PA Live What I Wore May 8, 15, 22

You may have noticed lately that I’ve been wearing the same wardrobe in several segments for PA Live. It’s not that I am low on stylish outfits to wear on set, but more that Wilkes Barre is an hour each way for me, so I pre-tape many of my segments at a time (and they don’t allow for wardrobe changes.)  So here’s the re-cap of what I wore for my last 3 segments just in case you see anything you like!

Necklace & earrings: DeAnna Cochran. DeAnna had specially made these for me about 4 years ago. The necklace is a leaf with peridot stones and the earrings are also peridot. I love her jewelry because it’s unique.

Blazer & skirt: JCPenney. I actually bought this outfit (it came as a set) about 3 years ago for my speaking engagement on the beauty industry and social media at Cosmoprof North America. JCP does have something similar still with this color green top and the brown and white polka dot dress (and it’s only $45!)   Read more
