Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘pattern mixing

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 Fri-Yay !

In the early 2000’s, I had a job that permitted me to work from home on Fridays and I enjoyed dressing down in jeans and slippers. I no longer have that job nor the luxury of working from home on Fridays, but it hasn’t stopped me from dressing down in jeans and slippers shoes!

I am almost head to toe Mossimo, even having a little fun changing the footwear this morning.  These shoes are part of my Target haul (here) and I want you to guess which pair made it to work today.

The cardigan sweater is from Ross and accessories from my jewelry box.

Which ones would you have chosen, the embellished flats or the Cap Toe heels?

Oh, BTW, this is the first time attempting a serious pattern mix – what do you think – Yay or Nay??

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Yay, today my energy level is high, and I am getting excited about having off next week – I hope to take a day or two and just do nothing!  I also plan to use a day to clean out my closets and prepare a large Goodwill donation before the end of the year.  Raising a glass to a productive and stress free day – cheers!

How do you like the pattern mixing of the poncho with the top?  I used to love wearing Ponchos in High School.
