Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Yesterday I was reviewing some old posts from 2012, and saw this OOTD post dated July 25th, then realized that I wore the same skirt on Tuesday July 9th of this year.  I guess it will now become my go-to skirt for July, at least I wore a different top but not sure which look I like better.

Living in New York in the ’80’s, I was always invited to “Purse Parties” and in addition to getting “designer inspired” bags on the low, it was a fun way to spend time with girlfriends.  Advance ahead to 2012, and once again I am being invited to “Purse Parties”, this time via Facebook but still an opportunity to get “designer inspired” bags and accessories on the low and spending fun time with girlfriends.

Hello friends and happy 1st day of Fall 2012, I hope your Saturday was a good one. My day started with my sons and later we met up with a girlfriend and her son in Dover. Malik drove and our first stop was at Spence’s Bazaar. I took my Clutch Purses down because Lolita had offered to sell them on consignment in her kiosk, God is good! We walked around taking in the sights of fall: pumpkins, gourds, mums, fresh veggies and fruits. I truly love this time of year, transitioning from the heat of summer to the crispness of fall, even though it was in the 80’s today.

Our next stop was Target, I purposely did not get a cart but in the shoe section I found yellow pumps, not the florescent ones which were so popular this summer for $8.98 a pair, and when I saw them in pink and teal I ran with a quickness to get a cart! The black patent leather and snakeskin pumps were 30% off, so I only got the black pair. I will probably go back for the snakeskin’s next week. The clearance racks were filled with some great items and I found two sheer tops which will be worn over camisoles and a Merona Pencil skirt on sale for $18.00.

My girlfriend and her son met us at Target and our next stop was Beauty Max the beauty supply store. The boys veered off into CitiTrends while she and I shopped for over an hour, found some nice units, nail polish and beauty supplies, we also took time to assist others. Using our “expertise” we helped an elderly women who is scheduled for surgery and a young lady preparing for a wedding in choosing just the right wigs.

Tired and hungry we drove to Pizzeria Uno for a late lunch. The food was excellent and the waiter was outstanding. It was a perfect start to the new season and I am looking forward to the rest of the year!

Have a fantabulous night!

GM has taken their showrooms on tour traveling to various locations giving people an opportunity to test drive their 2012 Chevy Volt electric cars. Haas Group International, a tenant in our office park hosted the event this week. The showroom was set up in the upper parking lot where several vehicles were parked next to information podiums, others were lined up to be test driven. As a thank you for participating you were eligible to enter a drawing for an iPad, and were given a free insulated tote bag.

Before the test drive you needed to show your driver’s license, and if you wanted to enter the drawing, complete an entry form. A wrist band was placed on your arm and then you stood in line for the next available car. It was like standing in line for a ride at Disney but much quicker! A rep sat in the passenger seat and I didn’t drive far but it didn’t take long to realize that the vehicles are definitely worth the investment. If not for the fact that it uses electric at less than $2.00 per charge, plugged overnight into a 110volt or several hours in a 220volt outlet. It was a smooth and quiet ride, had quick pickup and was not sluggish. The dashboard controls looked futuristic without being overly distracting. The comfort and roominess was amazing, my co-worker and back seat passenger is 6 feet, and she was comfortable, noting that her son who is 6’7, would also be comfortable driving this vehicle. We also gave a video testimonial which can be heard here.

GM is offering participating companies a discount and in addition to the government’s rebate program it is a great incentive to purchase if you are in the market. The wheels in my head were spinning because my 180 minute daily commute is costing me almost $100 a week in gas, and my son is eyeing my car as his own. If you get a chance stop by a Chevy/GM dealership and give it a test drive or if you’re lucky, they’ll roll up to an office park next to you.

This would have been a great birthday gift!


Hello my friends, it’s FRI-YAY…FRI-YAY and the last day of summer 2012.  It’s bittersweet saying goodbye to summer but all is all it was good filled with fun, food, family and friends.  I must admit that I am looking forward to a new season equally filled with fun, food, family and friends – we just got an invite to Thanksgiving Dinner – woot woot!!!

So whatever your plans are for the 1st weekend in fall, whether its hiking; biking; thrifting; shopping; apple picking, Holloween decorating; baking, raking, sleeping; cooking; cleaning; eating or just vegging in front of the tv, I hope it’s fantabulous!!!

Happy 1st Day of Summer 2012!!

With an overly warm winter and a very rainy spring it’s only natural that summer is barreling in with excessive heat. We have been given excessive heat warnings for today and Thursday with temps expecting to reach the high 90’s but feel like 100 degrees. This morning at 6:00 the readings were above 70. Stay cool, hydrated and safe!

Summertime fun in the sun calls for good music and these are my favorites – click on the links to see YouTube video. What are some of your favorite summer songs?

There are numerous published safety tips on how to stay cool during the excessive heat and I am definitely adhering to the one about dressing lightly.

Sundress was purchased on clearance last season at Burlington Coat Factory
