Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I hope you all had a nice weekend, mine didn’t turn out quite like I wanted so today I was a bit moody.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

When I saw this top at Goodwill I knew I had to get it because of all the colors, it would work with almost anything in my closet. There was just one slight problem…it’s very low cut in the front and I knew hubby would not let me out of the house in it.

It just hung in my closet…that was until yesterday after reading a post by a fellow blogger, Jean of all Trades…I am now wearing it backwards!!!

I am glad that I kept the shirt but more importantly, I am thankful for bloggers who come up with great ways to re-fashion clothing and jewelry!  This necklace was a $1.00 find at the Flea Market and I used nail polish to give the stones some color.

Remember those cute kids from the ’90’s group, Kriss Kross, they wore their clothes backwards too – everything old is new again!

Last week while blog hopping I entered a giveaway contest to win a scarf from The Posh’mina.  One of the Rafflecopter’s entry requirements was to leave a comment on the company’s Facebook page.  After viewing the online shop I chose the Hi’biscus style and commented that I would love to feature it on my blog. Within a matter of hours I received a reply from them with an offer to send one – wow the power of Facebook.  (now I need to find a giveaway that offers to pay my bills-lol)

Anywho, a lovely lady by the name of Debbie, also touted as being “Fashionably Fifty” from The Posh’mina contacted me,  stated that she liked my blog and would love to send a scarf for me to post. I agreed and said that I would wear it to church taking pictures from there, however, upon receipt I was like a kid at Christmas and couldn’t wait to wear it!

The company’s promo states that they had evolved big scarves to become more fashionable and versatile than ever.  I definitely have to agree because of it’s design; the slotted arm holes is by far the best feature.  How many times has your pashmina scarf fallen off your arms and onto a dirty floor in a public place?  The innovative design of the slotted arm holes prevents this from occurring as well as the constant adjusting and slip sliding from the shoulders.

I love the print of this scarf, the style is Hi’Biscus and there are currently 15 styles available online.  Made in India, designed in the United States and are 100% Viscose.  Dry cleaning is recommended but I will hand wash in a tub of cool water and Woolite when it needs to be freshened then lightly steamed pressed with an iron.

PRODUCT REVIEW-The Posh’mina Scarf

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Being outside this morning was a little more bearable because of the lack of wind however, the temps are forecast to remain in the teens until at least the weekend. To that end, I would like to say to all of my left coast friends …”STOP COMPLAINING BECAUSE IT’S 40 DEGREES!!!

I truly don’t mind the cold weather because it allows me to dress in layers and then make adjustments as necessary. For example today I am wearing a sleeveless grey dress covered with a blazer so if I have a “personal summer” I can simply remove the blazer until it passes.

This outfit started with shoes but in the sunshine the tights took on a weird greenish tint so I changed to my OTK, black suede boots.

This black faux fur once belonged to my sister so you know it’s been around since the late 80’s – I really don’t like driving in it because of the bulk.
