Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe it’s the last Thursday of the month, tomorrow is the first day of February. February 1st is also my “baby boy’s” Birthday and he will be 17 – somebody is getting old and it isn’t me!!!!
February, 1996, two days after he was born we were hit with a major snow storm that kept us house bound for almost a month. I hope that doesn’t happen again, the storm of 2010 was more than enough to last a lifetime – remember that one?

No snow storms in the forecast, just bright sunshine and high winds, but not like what tore through some southern states last night – we are truly blessed!

These blue suede booties are different than the one’s featured here.  They were purchased last year from The Shoe Dept, and also came in red which I didn’t get – wish I had because it would have saved me from going to the mall today.  By the way, have you been to JC Penney’s lately?  If not, GO, they have $1 ~ $3 ~ $5 and $10 clearance racks, I got a red skirt and a pair of capris for $5 each!  Their new “one price no sales” marketing campaign didn’t work out so well, and now they are restructuring, so head over for some great bargains.  The “housewives of Exton” were racking up on kids clothes on clearance for a dollar which are better deals than Goodwill!

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.

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 Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay!!

Our local forecast was way off, we only got a few flakes early this morning and now the sun is shining on this a beautiful crisp Winter’s day. What are your plans for the weekend, will you be doing something fun outdoors? Not me, tomorrow I’ll be stuck inside my closet thanks to a mini avalanche that occurred last night.
Less than a minute after hanging up a shirt the top rack came crashing down taking down the one beneath it as well. Thankfully I had just stepped back otherwise I could have been hit in the head with falling purses! (don’t laugh, it was a hard hat zone!)  I could only just look up and stare, hubby said, “you have too many clothes” – bite your tongue man!  He offered to re-do my closet with sturdier material so tonight off to Lowes we go. I wish my closet looked like his…..

and not like this!!!!

Today’s outfit was born out of the chaos in my closet. The scarf which was hidden on a shelf along with the boy’s baby blankets and box of teeth – (what do you do with baby teeth?) was the palette.  Most of my shoes are covered underneath all those shirts so I am wearing a pair of the loafers I just bought from Target.  They were still in the spare bedroom and had never made it into the closet along with these purple jeans.

Scarf – closet staple // Sleeveless shirt – GW Boutique (Goodwill) // Cardigan – Walmart // Skinny Jeans – Citi Trends // Loafers – Mossimo via Target // Ring – MizOutlet.com // Bracelets and Earrings – Jewelry Box

All in all I think I made the chaos work for this casual Friday – what do you think?

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay, the first one of the new year.

I don’t know about you, but I feel exhausted!  Perhaps it’s because the highs of the holidays are over or simply because I need more sleep…whatever it is, I’m just glad that the weekend is almost here.  Today’s casual Friday oufit consists of 5 shades of Purple ~ socks, boots, scarf, gloves and eye shadow.  Does it remind you of “Barney” – “I Love You…You Love Me” – lol

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

This week is flying by and tomorrow is the first day of winter or Winter Solstice, the shortest day and the longest night of the year – are you ready?  After the 21st, the days start to get longer and I begin to think Spring – yay!!!  However, in anticipation and celebration of Winter Solstice I decided to go full wool in gray including an oversized sweater thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill).

In High School initial stick pins were very popular, the “C” was my maiden name, it was purchased in 1978 or 1979 and I am glad that I kept it.
