Stylin Sunday Roundup

Sunday Stylin Roundup

Hello friends and welcome to another episode of Stylin Sunday Roundup! It’s funny because I always think about a rodeo when I type the title of this post.

The weather ’round here parts has been unpredictable which is evidenced by these three outfits.  The temps have been up and down with damp and dry conditions in between and soon I’ll have to put on some tights.

This first outfit is titled Stripes and Such

Stripes and Such

Stripes and Such is a mix of patterns with the leopard print booties that were purchased from the Deb Shop in the Exton Mall a few years back.  The grey skirt has black side panels so I chose this thrifted top as a complimentary accent.

What do you think? 

I do love my cardigan sweaters especially those that fall below my hips.

Polka Dots and Beads

This is my Polka Dot and Beads outfit.  The sweater is a recent purchase from Burlington Coat Factory, the House of Dereon purse was also purchased from BCF but that was several years ago.  My favorite “Betty Boop” polka dot shoes, beaded necklace and silver accessories completes the look.

Goodwill Goodie

This last outfit is entitled “Goodwill Goodie” and not because of the outfit but because of the leather bag which I purchased for my son for $8.00. He wanted his father’s leather bag but we had donated it to Goodwill last year, so I was on the hunt for another one and this was perfect.

I love thrifting at the Goodwill in Smyrna, DE.  Speaking of Goodwill, I will once again be a Stylist for the 2015 Goodwill Runway Show and I am looking forward to working with the group again.

On this “no-work day casual Friday” I’m wearing leggings under a leopard print dress and leopard print flats from Citi Trends.   You may remember that I wore this same outfit 2 years ago on Thanksgiving, it’s one of my casual favs.  Brass earrings and bangle with a black band watch from Avon completes the look.

So which outfit did you like best?

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and will also have a fantabulous week ahead.

Stay Blessed ~ No Stress in 2014!

Covered Perfectly Review and Giveaway | #spon

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.

Recently I was contacted by Pauline Durban, president and founder of Covered Perfectly, a company whose sole purpose is designing cute, flattering clothing for women over 40.  She asked if I would be interested in a doing a product review and giveaway so after checking out the online catalog I enthusiastically agreed.

There were several cute tops but I selected this Cascading Vest because in my mind I envisioned wearing it to an outdoors party or out to dinner with hubby.  The vest is available in four fabulous prints and because I already had a pair of leopard print shoes I chose this style to match them.

The Cascading Vest is the perfect accessory to any outfit whether for work or leisure, it works great with pants, jeans, or even a strapless jumpsuit as in how I wore it.

The vest is available in sizes small to extra large and 1X-4X and is flattering to all body types.

Wild Wednesday – OOTD

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

This evening I will be teaching another FREE blogging class sponsored by The Money School of Delaware.  “Small Business Blogging” will be held at the Bear Public Library beginning at 6:30 pm, and I hope to see a few of my Delawarean followers.

I was going through some of my unpublished pictures from the summer and came across this outfit which I am tagging “Wild Wednesday“.  I love wearing animal prints, and I have shoes, scarves, sweaters, pants and purses in both Leopard and Zebra but Leopard has always been my favorite.

How about you, do you have a favorite “wild” animal print?

I can’t remember where I purchased this asymmetrical top but most likely it was at either at Marshalls, Ross or TJ Maxx.

8 29 13 005

 I do however, remember getting these sandals from Ross.

8 29 13 009 When not wearing a skirt or dress I prefer wearing my Gauchos and you know that I’ve had these for awhile, do they even sell them anymore?

8 29 13 008

 What do you think – does this sleeveless top remind you of The Flintstones?

World’s Longest Yard Sale

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!

Here we are again, the 1st Saturday of the month so you know where to find me – set up at Dutch Country Farmers Market in Middletown.  I am still trying to purge household items, clothing, books, shoes anything I don’t need in order to make a few extra dollars and leave less to pack or donate when we decide to downsize.

Flea Market in Middletown

community-yard-sale-300x214

As in most states you’ll find community yard sales, but did you know that the longest yard sale starts in North Addison, Michigan and goes through to Gadsen, Alabama?   It is 690 miles long and people stake out their front yards along Hwy 127 for 4 days to sell new and used items!

According to the 127sale.com website, the yard sale officially starts the first Thursday in August and runs through to the following Sunday but this year it started on the 1st.  People travel from the North, South, East and West some make it an annual event renting RV’s and camping out year after year.  “An exchange of cultures with a common goal; to look, buy and sale!”

127sale

Can you imagine taking a week’s vacation to go to a Yard Sale?  Oh well, I’ll just stick with my little space in the parking lot on the first Saturday of the month from April to November!

Flea Markets are fun because you never know what you’ll find!

OOTD – Fall Back Monday

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

After a wonderfully warm weekend the temperatures have reversed course and fallen back into Autumn, dropping down into the 30’s and 40’s!  Yesterday I was in shorts preparing for the pool opening and today I am wearing fall clothing – this is crazy.  The forecast calls for 80 degrees by Thursday so  we will be going from sweaters to sleeveless tanks in less than a week, I don’t remember Spring temps being up and down like this – do you?

OOTD – Politically Incorrect President’s Day

Hello Friends and Happy President’s Day 2013

Lucky lucky you if you are home today on holiday because “it’s as cold as a witches’ tit”!   I remember that as being one of my mother’s favorite sayings during those cold New York winters.  Do you remember any crude statements that your parents or grandparents liked to say way before it would be considered politically incorrect? (careful)

In honor of President’s Day I was going to wear Red with Blue and White Polka Dots but it’s just too cold.  Instead I chose the warm and cozy flannel shirt that my son put in the “to be donated” box but never made it, a thrifted khaki skirt and knee high boots – it’s all about keeping warm!  I like these boots because they can be worn full length showing the brass studs or folded over to reveal the leopard print – two styles in one for less than $20!

Target's BOGO Sale

Hello Friends, I hope your week ended well and you are now home safe and sound.  After work I stopped at Tar’Jay to make a return and of course took a detour to the shoe department.  Winter is not yet over and the North East is being hit with a major snowstorm, however, retailers are busily stocking their shelves with Spring apparel.

Target is having a BUY 1 GET 1 50% OFF on their shoes and accessories and my tootsies were getting excited in anticipation of being free again.  The details on Mossimo shoes are getting much better, check out some of the latest styles currently on display.

There were still a few clearance items on the shelves including boots which will be needed for at least another month.  However, the Cap Toe heels and loafers were no longer available and most likely were shipped to Goodwill stores in the area.  Target, being a good Corporate Citizen donates a lot of their unsold merchandise directly to Goodwill where even better deals can be had.
