[Remix] Shelbee (Shelbee on the Edge)

Shelbee From 'Shelbee on the Edge'. My Instagram Husband



Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and I hope you have a tolerable Monday back at work. This remix is from Shelbee from fashion blog ‘Shelbee on the Edge’.  Shelbee has a quirky and unique style that always makes me rethink how I mix and match my own outfits.  Every outfit gives me tons of inspiration for my own outfits.  Shelbee’s motivation and theme for her blog is to show that women over 40 can be stylish and that style has no age limit.

Shelbee was one of the first bloggers I befriended when I started on this blogging journey.  I maintain that Shelbee is one of the hardest working bloggers on the net.  Not only is she a blogger, but she is a stay at home mother to her two cute little boys in Watertown, New York.  With everything on her plate,  she is always making boss moves and I’m just constantly in awe of Shelbee’s stamina and perseverance.  Shelbee also the kindest person ever, she took this newbie fashion blogger under her wing and helped me even when she really didn’t know me. So, it was no question that I would remix Shelbee’s outfit this time around.

I want to to thank her for giving me permission to repost photos from her blog.

Remix - Shelbee On The Edge


Choosing what outfit I would pick was super hard! There are just so many fantastic outfits that Shelbee has won. However, I couldn’t deny instantly loving this outfit the moment I saw it.

In the original post,  Shelbee chooses a plus size cognac colored velvet skater dress from Dresslily.  Unfortunately, that dress is sold out, so I scrambled to find an alternative.  Thankfully, Rosewholesale had this gorgeous alternative in Olive Green.  I think Olive Green is that one universal color that can be worn by everyone no matter their skin tone

Next is this is pretty samba sash belt from Modcloth.  I usually don’t shop at ModCloth, but I just adored this belt and it really resembles the belt Shelbee wore in the original post.  Unfortunately, the color of the original belt’s color didn’t really match what I was going for.

Over the dress, I paired up this beautiful fur bordered poncho that I found on eBay. It’s so pretty and the price is practically a steal.  Of course, there are the accessories such as the opaque plus size tights, the gold tone stainless watch, and this gorgeous gold necklace from Nordstroms.

And finally, my favorite part of this outfit was these fabulous olive green ankle boots. I know that Shelbee wore simple flat work boots in the original photos.  However, I couldn’t resist adding this beautiful olive combat high heeled ankle boots. I wish I could wear heels, just to strut around in these beautiful boots.

This is my remix of Shelbee’s outfit from her post ‘My Instagram Husband‘.  You can find Shelbee on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus, and Pinterest.   So what do you guys think? Do you love it or hate it? Let me know down in the comments!

  1. Gigi, you are so sweet and kind! Your words brought tears to my eyes and I am truly honored and humbled! Thank you so very much. I absolutely love your remix! In fact, now I want those olive green combat boots! It’s funny because when I ordered this velvet dress, I thought it was going to be more of an olive green than a shade of brown. So in my opinion, your remix is spot on and even better! I cannot express enough gratitude to you for all of your support on my blog and for your blogging friendship! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    1. Shelbee, I meant every word of what I wrote. You deserve all the praise and accolades and it just tickles me pink to see you succeed. And yes, those green combat boots are gorgeous and I wish I could wear heels. And I’m laughing about the color, because I had such a hard time finding a cognac version of this dress, and I had to just settle for olive green. Being right was just a happy accident. Thank you so much for giving me permission to do this and I hope you have a wonderful week!
