Jailhouse Rock

Everybody in the whole cell block, was dancing to the jailhouse rock!

Elvis' birthday is Saturday so I think all this week I will incooperate something into my outfit to remember Elvis. I was inspired by Vanessa over at Big Girl, Small Budget, Tiny Town after her fabulous 12 Days of Christmas. I don't think that will ever be matched, much less topped. But she made me want to do a theme.

Today I'm wearing black pants with white pinstrips like the black and white he wore when he performed the song. I'm also wearing a red Ann Taylor shirt because he wore red on that album cover. (I know, it's a stretch. Go with it.)  I also  have on my other new, awesome black fur vest. I got this on clearance at Belk's for $11!! Lise and I were shopping together that day and we had separated for a little bit. We saw each other and both us said, LOOK WHAT I FOUND!! I held up the black fur vest, she held up one just like it but white! It was hysterical to us!

I apologize for my pictures today. They are a little blurry/grainy. I'm not sure what Blake did when he was taking them.

Happy Monday!


  1. Cute! Will you be breaking out your white satin sequined jumpsuit by the end of the week?

  2. LOL I choose to believe that Elvis never existed!! I'm a 50's and 60's Elvis fan!

  3. Haha! Going to put your hair in a DA?

  4. I like the concept and extra points for going w/a theme especially one as awesome as Elvis. Also great fur vest, I have been trying to find one at the right price, I so need one for my wardrobe.

  5. You look great! I love the theme and have been scouring my closet for some blue sued shoes. lol
    I can NOT believe we bought the same fur vest....wait....yes I can. :)

  6. Love the theme idea
    My grandmother was a huge Elvis fan and met him in an Elevator once
    Kudos to both of you for you vest score!

  7. just now catching up on your posts... Love Elvis. One of my favorites starts "did you miss me tonight?"
    btw, i have a striped shirt (short sleeves) that looks just like a jailhouse rock ;)
