Well, if you have been following my blog you may know that I have Rheumatoid Diseases & Fibromyalgia. BUT, that will not stop be from being the fashionista I’ve always been. Trust, I get it from my mama! You don’t have to look like what you’re going through and you don’t have to spend a fortune or take 3 hours for make up! I just can’t! Not with these hands, arms, shoulders, and you get the picture!
Well, my nephew had a birthday party last Friday at the bowling lanes. It was a last minute decision for me to go. I quickly had to do something with my hair and with natural hair on a bad hair day it was a quick top knot. My lipstick is by Maybelline and the name of it is Violet Vixen. Of course eyebrows and mascara were applied but, no eye shadow. I always choose lipstick and mascara when I am in a rush. Done!
I needed comfortable shoes so I chose my black and white Nikes. I searched my closet for my black and white purse that was given to me years ago. And well there you have it. Oh yeah, the blouse is one I bought on clearance at Target. It’s in under my tab Fashion Confetti in another post.
Enjoy your Thursday aka Friday Jr.!
Let the record show, I am really good at this! (LOL) or just very fortunate to find such great deals to enhance my wardrobe. This Le Suit jacket is a separate and retails from 59.99-79.99 and to get it, and it fits perfectly, for 24.99 was awesome. It will add a big pop of color to outfits. The pants below are by Kasper and I saw them for about 69.99-79.99 printed patterns. 9.99 is what I paid. I wore them for mother’s day as I opted for the cool and casual mom look. I added my 6.98 top from Target, a purse that was a gift from someone years ago, and Nine West shoes from TJ Maxx that I already had in the closet. I really like those shoes.
I need a pair of dull black heels, no shine, and very comfortable. Many time my illness can make my very high heels impossible. These are peep toe and comfortable, stylish,but just like a woman, I still need a pair that is not peep toe lol! Men don’t have so many options, so I think they are not qualified to ask “Why do you have so many shoes?” There are so many colors, so many occasions, so many…options….. (ha ha ha….but true!). I purchased them from JCPenny’s. A $60 pair of shoes on clearance for $17.99. Liz again and they feel so good to my feet. Also, I want to point out that before my illness I always varied wearing my heels, which I like high. Wearing high and very high heels can damage your feet, toes, knees, hips, and back over a period of time. I think this may be one reason I can still wear them with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had surgery on my foot a few years ago because of Rheumatoid. So, take it from a shoe fanatic…every day, 8 hours a day, is not a good look. Give your feet a rest. Treat them to pedicures, massages, cute flats and fly sneakers.
I always thought going into Talbots with my Mom as a child was for the classy and mature crowd. I go with her and I am starting to find some things I like. Am I getting older??? Of course! But my style has always been hard to pin down. Especially, since I go with how I feel and the occasion. Talbots makes you feel so special when they wrap your items! This was and amazing deal 59.50 for 11.85!!!! Faints…
I have black and gold earrings made with a pointy end and I thought this would go nice with it for 5.99.
A red dress for $16.99 @ TJMAXX.( I don’t recognize the brand but, I’m not big on brand as much as I am on 1. Quality 2. If I like it!!!).
The beach is one of my favorite places to be. Since I can’t be near it daily I brought it home with me. Oh and turquoise is my favorite color. So, as always within a reasonable budget (clearance, yard sales, etc) and using what I have accumulated on hand, the last picture is of my spruced up nightstands. And both nightstands were deals. One is chipped and was marked down. The other was $10 from someone selling it on Facebook (the round one).
