Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday, it’s another dark, damp and dreary day but my prayers were answered so for that I am thankful!

Driving into work this morning I was thinking about a financial situation and became a little depressed. When I got to my desk instead of reading today’s passage from “Our Daily Bread“, I read the scriptures on page 64, of “Gods Promises for every day“, What to do when you feel Worried“.  In less than 5 minutes my phone rang with an answer to my prayers,

Tuesday’s Testimony – God is Good!

Give all your worries to him, because he cares about you – 1 Peter 5:7

Jesus said, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled.  Trust in God, and Trust in me.”  John 14:1

Today’s outfit is a Tribal Throwback, hubby had these matching vests made during our first year of marriage in 1991, you know that newlywed stage when it was cute to dress alike!   #2 son wanted his father’s vest, but he said, “no, wait until I retire and then you can have all my clothes”, so I gave him mine.  

This morning I shopped my son’s closet for my vest.

Today is my “YAY-DAY” because tomorrow I’m off for a stay-ca-day to start the long Labor Day holiday weekend.  Today’s outfit is layered like the leaves on the lawn …. don’t go summer…please stay a wee bit longer (wiping away tears).  Not ready to put away the summer wear so I covered this spaghetti strap maxi with a front zip vest thrifted from Goodwill,  accented with a red belt from Ross.  Popping more of the red with earrings inherited from my lil sis who passed away in 1992, a bracelet from MizOutlet.com and covered one stone in my ring with red nail polish.  The polish is easily removed for a change of color to accent another outfit.  I thought about wearing red shoes but decided on these black and white stripped wedges from Marshalls.

Last week I saw a post on the GoodwillDE Facebook page that featured items from their Kirkwood Highway store, I’ve never been to that location and wanted to check it out.  So on Friday I rode with Tayair to Newark where he  attended a picnic sponsored by The Community Connectors and then I drove to Goodwill (saving gas) to shop.  Malik returns to school on the 28th and I found him some new shirts and polos for $5.00 and $6.00 each.

On this trip I was only looking for fall and winter items because Goodwill is now selling their summer items at 50% every Tuesday.

Sweater Vest which he likes to show off his muscular arms!! – $1.88

These 2 skirts made great additions to my fall wardrobe and I will wear them with tights and boots when the weather cools. – $6.00 each

This black mock neck sweater was a bit pricey at $8.00, but I liked the silver buckles across the front, I washed it in a lingerie bag on the hand wash cycle it came out perfectly.

These animal print pants was a last minute decision and I’m not sure if I will wear them, but if I do, it will be with a long sweater and boots -$3.75

.

Finally this sleeveless top is a transitional piece that I will wear now and then under a blazer in the fall and winter – $3.75

A few weeks ago I wore this dress covered with a sleeveless top which I later unbuttoned to make it a vest.  I  think the mustard color of the shoes complimented the dress, what do you think?
