Styling with #Macys #Energie black long sleeve top

I recently purchased this #Energie black long sleeve top from #Macys. The Energie Juniors’ Judy Shimmer Layering Top was on clearance sale, and I was looking for a black long sleeve top, so I bought it even though I’m not any where close to being a “Junior”. black long sleeve top black black rosette skirt

Today I decided to have a little fun playing with some outfit ideas for the top. These outfits that I put together are just for fun and dress-up play. I wouldn’t actually dress like this to go out. Not the skirt outfits anyway. Maybe the DL1961 jeans outfit with a jacket. But the rosette skirt is way too short and the outfit is over-the-top showy. And the polka dot skirt is too 80s teeny bopper. In fact, the polka dot skirt is from “The Children’s Place”. I picked it up from the thrift store last year not realizing it was a little girl’s skirt.

About the top – it’s a fitted pullover top with allover shimmer, designed for layering (or wearing along). Design features include long sleeves, scoop neckline.  Material is a mix of cotton and spandex.

You’ll find it in the Junior’s section at Macys.

With the polka dot skirt…

I think this look is cute, but Christie Brinkley is probably the only over 35 year old woman who could get away with wearing it. The rest of us would have people in our face criticizing us for not dressing our age, and accusing us of trying too hard to look young.

Last year I was lucky enough to receive an offer to try a pair of jeans from the brand DL1961. I picked their black instasculpt coated skinny jeans because I’d been wanting a pair of leather look jeans. I absolutely love these jeans, but I do think they look better on me when I’m a little fuller than I am right now.

Like the Energie black long sleeve top?

Visit Macy’s online to check if the top is still available. It is regularly priced at $16.

My rating for this top is a 4.0. There’s little if anything to complain about. It’s a simple black long sleeve top with a gold glittery aspect. It’s closely fitted. The sleeves are long and narrow (probably a little too narrow at the wrist). Not a spring or summer top I would say (unless very early spring and very late summer).

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
