Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Totally Thrifted Outfit from Goodwill

If you recall in a previous post in which I talked about de-cluttering my closets then you would have realized that I have more than one, as a matter of fact, I have racks of clothes in both the guest bedroom as well as in the basement.

I started de-cluttering the basement racks first and donated several boxes of items back to Goodwill most of which were initially thrifted and then I moved on to the guest bedroom closet.

I still haven’t done my walk in closet, the one that I mentioned makes me nervous every time I open the door.  I am not in such a rush especially since I can put together an outfit from items for the other closets.  This outfit was actually saved from being donated, the multi-color top was in the basement and the green maxi skirt was in the guest bedroom and together they made an appearance on a cool crisp Autumn day.

The colors of the purse, purple and green was a perfect accessory for the outfit and it along with the necklace were also thrifted new from Goodwill.  Believe it or not, I haven’t been thrifting in several months simply because I don’t need anything, nor do I have any room on the racks!

The tan wedge sandals weren’t thrifted, but were on sale at Kmart when I purchased them several years ago and they are very comfortable.  I also bought them in black but had to order them online as they didn’t carry them in the stores.  thrifed accessories from Goodwill

The weather is still up and down here in Delaware so next week’s outfit will feature the black cap sleeve dress which was perfect for the Bloggers Night at the Grub Burger Bar event that I attended on last Thursday.

Which closet do you dread cleaning out the most, your clothes closet, the kid’s closet or the coat closet?

You Choose the Shoes Season 2 – Episode 10

Hello friends and welcome to You Choose the Shoes Season 2 – Episode 10


Last month before we left for vacation hubby and I shot two sets of You Choose the shoes episodes and so we will begin this week with the flats verses wedges.

I love this maxi skirt and striped tank which were both purchased from Walmart and I bet by now are on the clearance racks.  So if you are looking to add to your summer wardrobe, may I suggest you head over there with a quickness.

Now take a look at the outfit and let me know which pair of shoes you would have chosen to wear with it.

The belt is a thrifted find from Goodwill and I think the necklace is also from Walmart.  #WearWalmart

The flats are from Rainbow Shops and the wedges were purchased years ago from Kmart. Right now both of these stores are having great clearance sales so you can really dress for less!

What do you think, I know it should be about comfort but believe it or not, the wedges are more comfortable than the flats, however, when it comes to driving, it’s better to wear flats.

Take one more look at both and let me know which pair you would have chosen for this outfit.

You Choose the Shoes – Season 2 ~ Week 7

Hello friends and welcome to another week of “You Choose the Shoes”  I didn’t pull out all of my spring and summer shoes last weekend, but I did add to the collection, so look out for some new contenders.  In the meantime, let’s check out these oldies but goodies.

YCTS Week 7 Avi

It’s another week of peep toe versus closed toe, and speaking of toes, hubby gave me a gift card to Sunlight Salon so soon I’ll be getting my seasonal pedicure!

You Choose the Shoes

I kinda like these “granny boot” peep toes and the color can be worn with a lot of different outfits, however, I chose to go with this neutral color skirt from Spiegel.

You choose the shoes Of course, snakeskin is also considered a neutral color and it should be treated as such.  Now that I am looking at all the accessories, I’m thinking…”what was I thinking…”

Hubby was messing with me on this Monday morning, as you can see from the next picture.
