Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘boots

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 Thursday, hope your day is going well.

Having Tuesday off from work has me a day behind mentally which may not be a bad thing because tomorrow is FRI-YAY!!!!  It was somewhat depressing reading through the blogs last night, seeing all those beautiful and colorful maxi dresses and wishing for warmer days instead of dealing with these cold Winter winds.  This morning we were greeted with snow showers…really Mother Nature – c’mon Spring!

In these pictures I may be smiling but I’m definitely not excited about these outfits, I want to shed the layers!

I had hoped that tomorrow the weather would be warmer but most likely it will be a “50’s Friday”  Oh well, the temps will eventually increase but  until then I will be wearing clothing from the winter wardrobe.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Today’s outfit was inspired by an Instagram picture from Kela’s Kloset, a fashion blogger whom I admire and follow because of her great sense of style.  She like myself has vowed to shop our closet for the month of March, me because gas is too damn high.  I’m always checking the blogs for ideas and to get inspiration for refashioning items that I already own and this is today’s.

You know how much I love my sleeveless shift dresses, well instead of wearing a cardigan or blazer over it, I’m wearing a print top underneath.

Snow is in the forecast this afternoon starting at 4:00 pm,  just in time for my evening commute so I chose to wear an old pair of boots and to accessorize with silver jewelry

Hello Friends and Happy President’s Day 2013

Lucky lucky you if you are home today on holiday because “it’s as cold as a witches’ tit”!   I remember that as being one of my mother’s favorite sayings during those cold New York winters.  Do you remember any crude statements that your parents or grandparents liked to say way before it would be considered politically incorrect? (careful)

In honor of President’s Day I was going to wear Red with Blue and White Polka Dots but it’s just too cold.  Instead I chose the warm and cozy flannel shirt that my son put in the “to be donated” box but never made it, a thrifted khaki skirt and knee high boots – it’s all about keeping warm!  I like these boots because they can be worn full length showing the brass studs or folded over to reveal the leopard print – two styles in one for less than $20!

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay ~ Fri-Yay ~ Fri-Yay!!!

Wow where did the week go?  Are you planning something fun and exciting for the weekend?  I’m having my car serviced in the morning and then working on income taxes in the afternoon – Whoopie!!!  I will be stopping by The Java House Cafe to discuss promoting a community event happening next week so that will make my Saturday more fun and exciting.

Today the weather is gorgeous and according to Punxsutawney Phil Spring is only 3 weeks away, however, I am not ready to break out the pastels or put away the boots.  My casual Friday’s attire is still winter with jeans, a sweater, scarf, boots and silver jewelry accessories.

Hello Friends, I hope your week ended well and you are now home safe and sound.  After work I stopped at Tar’Jay to make a return and of course took a detour to the shoe department.  Winter is not yet over and the North East is being hit with a major snowstorm, however, retailers are busily stocking their shelves with Spring apparel.

Target is having a BUY 1 GET 1 50% OFF on their shoes and accessories and my tootsies were getting excited in anticipation of being free again.  The details on Mossimo shoes are getting much better, check out some of the latest styles currently on display.

There were still a few clearance items on the shelves including boots which will be needed for at least another month.  However, the Cap Toe heels and loafers were no longer available and most likely were shipped to Goodwill stores in the area.  Target, being a good Corporate Citizen donates a lot of their unsold merchandise directly to Goodwill where even better deals can be had.

Good Monday Morning Friends, I hope you had a nice weekend and if you are a Raven’s fan – CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

We didn’t have a Super Bowl party but my son invited two of his buddies over to watch the game and they had a great time.  I made chicken wings, pizza and slow cooked barbecue meatballs which they ate well before half time!  We were all very excited to watch the Ravens win especially after the 30 minute blackout, which caused a lot of anxiety for the fans, even Twitter shut down for a short time.  Blue Ivy’s mom was on fiyah and I enjoyed her performance with Destiny Child but not all of this year’s commercials performed well. Once again, Dorito’s knocked it out of the park with the Goat and “Daddy Princesses; I also liked the Tide “stain”, eTrade baby and Budweiser commercials but missed the one with the Clydesdale horses. The “Go Daddy” ad was disgusting and Dodge Ram was disappointing because of the lack of diversity in their “God Made Farmers” commercial and if I hear that Gangum Style song used again I’ma scream!

I am not a football aficionado so I cannot comment on the actual game, only that I love Ray Rice because I grew up with his mother and aunt in New Rochelle, NY.   Back in the day I dated and almost married his great uncle, Kevin, but that was way before he was born and a story for another time…it’s just a distant memory now….

The game ended late and I didn’t prepare my clothes for the week so once again I hit the back of the closet and pulled out this pantsuit.
