SINCEREST FORM OF FLATTERY

We have all heard the saying that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Today I would like to share with you the outfit that was inspired by the awesome blogger who inspired me to start this blog. I guess I am imitating her in more ways than one! I hope she is flattered.

She is much more disciplined than I will ever be.  She posts an outfit EVERY DAY! I love the fact that she uses a lot of color, and that she always has cute shoes.  She recently had a post about shoes, so be sure to look for that. This link is for the outfit that I tried to steal.

Please notice where my cute top was purchased, as was by the way, the adorable REVERSIBLE bag, which was a whopping $16.00.

I have had the pants for awhile. Again, these are in the category of “foundational” (I am pretty sure that is not really a word). They are Peter Nygard slims, and I think they are about $60.  But any cute white pants or capris would be fine.

I would be very flattered if you tried to copy this look. If you do, please send an email to  Blog5020@aol.com and include a photo.  I will post it on the Reader’s Outfits page.

Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to subscribe by email if you would like to receive notice of new posts that way.

Look forward to seeing you soon!

 

WELCOME TO MY FASHION WORLD

Well hello there! Thanks for checking out my NEW BLOG! I am so excited to have a place to share what I love doing….putting outfits together. Like most women I know, I love to shop and I love to find bargains, but the real fun begins when I get home, go to my closet, and start mixing and matching.

The title of my blog reflects the fact that I am over 50 (waaay over) and that I rarely spend more than $20.00 for any one article of clothing, unless it is a foundational piece like my favorite Athleta pants.

I am a visual learner, so a lot of my posts will be photo comparisons like these:

I am wearing the Athleta pants in the photos. They can go from the gym to a dressy occasion. I will post more black pants outfits later, so check back if you are interested in that.

If you are looking for actual fashion advice, you will need to visit other people. There are many good blogs and fashion and makeup sites. Here is a link to my favorite blog:
