Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Archive for the ‘fashion’ Category

I was born in 1961, the decade known for free love, drugs, Go-Go Girls, Rock and Roll, The Vietnam War, Civil Rights, Hippies, the Birth Control Pill, The Peace Corp, Dr King, President Kennedy, assassinations, integration, Space Explorations, Cuban Missile Crisis, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, The Beverly Hillbillies, Afros, Crew Cuts, and of course the vibrant and colorful world of fashion.

The Past Is a Blast is a website that has culminated fun and interesting facts about the ’60’s, including popular music, dances, sports figures, politicians even the minimum wage, which at the time was just a $1.00, go check it out.

I was too young to fully understand it all but do remember that I loved the fashion and styles of the ’60’s, the bell bottoms, platform shoes, neon colors, color blocking and pattern mixing…hey, isn’t that the style of today?

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

This morning I woke up blessed but stressed which is not the norm for me. Before driving into work I stopped at Middletown Car Care to check on the status of “Miranda”, Tayair’s old car. We took it in last week for a diagnosis to determine if is was worth having it serviced and then given to Malik or not serviced and left on the lot to be sold.  I don’t like being stressed or carrying a burden so I am going to relax, take a deep breath, exhale and then release it into the atmosphere.

Friday Eve and it’s not very Springy, it’s overcast and cloudy, a “jeans and t-shirt” type of day, but since I can’t wear that to work it’s a “two-tone dress” type of day.

As with most stores, the fall fashions were in stock well before Labor Day to capture the back to school crowd as well as the excitement of updating our fall wardrobes. Rugged Wearhouse is a clothing store that has really stepped up their game. I remember years ago this store carried mainly jeans and t-shirts for young adults and school age kids, and although this is still their primary target the selection of women’s wear has greatly improved. To further entice the more mature buyer they recently introduced a Rewards Program. When you sign up online you will receive a card which is presented at checkout. The reward is $5.00 off your next purchase if you spend at least $25.00.
On this trip I did spend more than $25.00, and here are the items that I purchased.

Price point for these tops starts at $7.99

Career Clothing

Price point for these dresses start at $12.99

Shoes are a hit or miss, depending on when they get a shipment, I saw several pairs of boots but wanted to wait because I couldn’t remember what I already had in my closet. I did however, get these purple ones because I knew I didn’t have any in this color and I liked the funky heels!

Shoe price point varies, these were $9.99

Accessories galore starting as low as $.99 cents.

I purchased 2 necklaces for $1.49, a pair of earrings and bracelets for $3.99 each.

Scarves and purses start at $4.99
