Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!

Here we are again, the 1st Saturday of the month so you know where to find me – set up at Dutch Country Farmers Market in Middletown.  I am still trying to purge household items, clothing, books, shoes anything I don’t need in order to make a few extra dollars and leave less to pack or donate when we decide to downsize.

Flea Market in Middletown

As in most states you’ll find community yard sales, but did you know that the longest yard sale starts in North Addison, Michigan and goes through to Gadsen, Alabama?   It is 690 miles long and people stake out their front yards along Hwy 127 for 4 days to sell new and used items!

According to the 127sale.com website, the yard sale officially starts the first Thursday in August and runs through to the following Sunday but this year it started on the 1st.  People travel from the North, South, East and West some make it an annual event renting RV’s and camping out year after year.  “An exchange of cultures with a common goal; to look, buy and sale!”

Can you imagine taking a week’s vacation to go to a Yard Sale?  Oh well, I’ll just stick with my little space in the parking lot on the first Saturday of the month from April to November!

Flea Markets are fun because you never know what you’ll find!

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

After a wonderfully warm weekend the temperatures have reversed course and fallen back into Autumn, dropping down into the 30’s and 40’s!  Yesterday I was in shorts preparing for the pool opening and today I am wearing fall clothing – this is crazy.  The forecast calls for 80 degrees by Thursday so  we will be going from sweaters to sleeveless tanks in less than a week, I don’t remember Spring temps being up and down like this – do you?

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, 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.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

I took my car through the car wash yesterday only to wake up to fresh snow this morning.  It never seems to fail, the day after you wash your car it rains or in this case snows.  Oh well it could be worse, I took my time driving this morning and made it safely to work.

Today’s snow day outfit is another one of the brushed SUEDE pantsuits from the back of the closet, paired with a leopard print SCARF and brown SUEDE boots for an easy breezy triple “S” day.

I very rarely if ever pay full retail price for any article of clothing or accessory and I rarely if ever shop at the stores in the mall. However, yesterday was one of those rare occasions because I stopped at Best Buy which just happens to be next door to the Concord Mall. I love the various clothing lines at Boscov’s but you really have to take your time because of how they have them set up throughout the floor. It was late and I was heading out the door but a 75% off clearance sign grabbed my attention. I only spent a few minutes going through a few racks and purchased 3 items, totaling $32.74.

NY Collection Embellished top with bat wing sleeves ($48.00) on sale 5.99

Brown Premise Pencil skirt ($58.00) on sale $14.50

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Chaus knit top with faux leather shoulders ($49.00) on sale $12.25

No matter how hard I try, I can never seem to find anything at H&M, but at New York & Company it’s a different story. Not that I needed more jewelry, but when the sign reads 80% off, it’s too hard to resist! I purchased two statement necklaces one in red and another in blue for $4.59 each, original price was $22.94.

Yesterday I received the 3rd and from what I’ve read, the final FREE Beauty Bag from Target.  This one is definitely my favorite, a 6″x 5″, vinyl SOHO Beauty Bag in leopard print, perfect for the season and can easily be wiped clean.  It wasn’t until later this morning that I realized it matched my OOTD perfectly so I had a co-worker take this picture.

Inside the beauty bag were the following sample size items:

Included was also a booklet of coupons with an expiration date 12/31/12
