Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Archive for August 2012

Today is my “YAY-DAY” because tomorrow I’m off for a stay-ca-day to start the long Labor Day holiday weekend.  Today’s outfit is layered like the leaves on the lawn …. don’t go summer…please stay a wee bit longer (wiping away tears).  Not ready to put away the summer wear so I covered this spaghetti strap maxi with a front zip vest thrifted from Goodwill,  accented with a red belt from Ross.  Popping more of the red with earrings inherited from my lil sis who passed away in 1992, a bracelet from MizOutlet.com and covered one stone in my ring with red nail polish.  The polish is easily removed for a change of color to accent another outfit.  I thought about wearing red shoes but decided on these black and white stripped wedges from Marshalls.

Happy Hump Day Wednesday, I hope you are having a peaceful yet productive day.  I am trying my hardest to wear as many summer outfits as possible before the cool days of Autumn arrive.  I have a feeling that like summer, the tempetures are going to be extreme but at the opposite end of the thermometer.  I haven’t worn this outfit (here) since the Spring when I was chosen “DC’s Friday Fashionista” (here).  It was after that post that I remembered the wheel in the garage, where it has been stored for over 20 years, guess it will soon become a yard sale item.  I vowed to include it if I ever wore the outfit again…and today is the day, it fits in with the Nautical Anchors Away theme.

This is also the first time wearing these wedge sandals, purchased online from Urbanog.com along with several other pairs in April (here).

Doesn’t the first shot look like I was saying, “don’t start nothing and there won’t be nothing!” – lol

Another “return” trip to Ross yesterday after work (remember this one) and found a few new beauty and “As Seen on TV” products.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As Seen on TV Strutz Cushion Arch Supports; 1 size fits all men and women.  They have non-slip soles made of breathable fabric and can be worn barefoot, with sneakers, sandals or heels.  Hubby complained about his feet yesterday so I’ll ask him to try them out and give me a review, $7.99

Strutz CushionsAs Seen on TV Cami Secrets in Zebra, Leopard and Cougar prints.  I previously purchased a 3-pack in solid colors (black, white and beige) and have worn them under low V-cut shirts/dresses.  They are light weight, cool and attaches easily to the bra straps, $6.99.

Cami Secret

Absolute! Make-up Cleansing Tissues, 33 per pack with Pomegrante Extract.  There are 8 more cleansing cloths than most other brands, cleans well and cost only $2.99.

Hollywood Fashion Secrets Accessory Dots with Bonus Fashion Tape.  “When you don’t need a lot, use a dot!”  I have always wanted to try this product, according to the packaging it can eliminate gaps in your tops/wrap dresses; hold straps; adjust hemline/length; secure necklines, scarves and accessories.  $2.99 for 25 double stick tape dots and a bonus 6 strips of fashion tape.

Hollywood Accessory Dots

Remember when plastic hangers replaced wire ones and we all loved them….well now they are being replaced with velvet hangers which are better.  Keeps delicate clothing and straps from falling off, gives more room in the closets (for all those hauls and are great for hanging accessories, belts, scarves and jewelry.  20 pack for $9.99.

“NO MORE WIRE HANGERS” – Joan Crawford, Mommy Dearest

And the reason for my return trip – an exchange for these!

Rampage Faux Suede and Snake Skin pumps with 4.5″ heel and 1″ platform – $18.99.

Today was the first day of school for al-Malik and needless to say, he was not excited about boarding that bus this morning….kept whining something about wanting a car….in his dreams and my nightmares!!!  Time sure does fly, after today I only have 1 more chance to get that “first day of school” picture, then he’s off to college!!!  Where does the time go…I miss my babies 😦

Hubby started back to school yesterday, he’s a Student Advisor in a Middle School.  When I got home and asked how his day was, he was like…”oooh you know how it hard it is going back….” NOPE…cause I don’t get 3 months off in the summer buddy!!!!  I have a house of whiners!!!!

In 1971, The Carpenters sang, Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down, perhaps it did for them but it doesn’t for me, especially when I get to wear a fedora instead of an umbrella!
