Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Monday…Monday…Monday, I hope your weekend was all that you wanted it to be and then some!

One of my weekend missions is to have all of the closets cleaned out by the end of the summer…or at least all of the bedroom closets cleaned out!  Last Saturday after working with my son in his, we decided to store the sweaters and sweatshirts in Original Space Bags which were purchased from Ross

The Space Bags are sealed tight when the air is removed using a vacuum

I organized some of my shoes with this Over-The-Door Shoe Rack by Mainstays purchased from Walmart

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 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 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).

I will definitely NOT be wearing a coat or jacket because all of this wool will definitely keep me warm and toasty!

P.S. Don’t want to hear no mess about tomorrow being the end of the world – puhleeze!!!!

Thursday I drove to Goodwill in Exton, it had been a while since I was there last and I’m on the hunt for scarves and striped shirts.  I didn’t find either but I did find some other Goodwill Goodies.  Remember the post when I stated that I was looking for Cowboy boots, well it took almost 4 months but I found them, a pair of NEW Mossimo (Target) boots for $8.99!

Hello friends and happy Saturday, “Shop Small Business Saturday” which is a wonderful event to promote and support local businesses during the holiday season. Before shopping locally in Middletown I had to pick up my new glasses from Halpern Eye Care and was excited to get them. When I went in for my annual appointment I spent well over an hour trying on different frames to find just the right ones and I think this time I did! I chose a sunglasses frame by the Guess brand and they fit my face just as I wanted them too. It didn’t hurt that the case is a leopard print although it’s large and bulky.

The winter weather is knocking on the back door so I had to break out the bin of sweaters, this one belonged to my sister and is one of my favorites. I love these fingerless gloves which were purchased several years ago from Kmart. Jeans and purse were thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill), scarf purchased from “The Bag Lady” Home Purse Party, boots are closet staples, earrings from Rugged Wearhouse and XOXO Sunnies were won in a Penny Chic contest.

Hello friends and Happy FRI-YAY!!

I love this time of the year, the autumn colors are so vibrant and the air is crisp and clean ~ “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”.  Here we are, one week before the infamous “Black Friday” shopping frenzy, though some stores are opening on Thursday now being labeled as “Black Thursday”.  Will you be out shopping or standing in long lines waiting for the latest gadget or gizmo?  I’ve never done it but really want that $99.00 camera deal being advertised by Target – aah I can wait.

Today is casual Friday so I decided to wear a khaki skirt with a sweater and booties.

The beauty of autumn colors is breath taking!
