In my groove....






After all the hand-wringing and brow-backhanding of a couple of days ago, lamenting my dilemma of being true to my style; I absolutely accomplished my objective here!  This has so many of the elements of what I love:  the vintage blouse on the black canvas.  The print is a bit dramatic and eclectic AND it’s simple!!  LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

I had some great comments on my last post concerning “What I know for sure”.  Seems I’m not the only one who suffers from inspiration overload sometimes.  There are just SO MANY fabulous and creative blogs now!  I’ll stumble across one that I’ve never seen before and see that it has a few hundred followers; and I’ll think, “Oh my gosh!  How have I not found her before now?!?!” 

More Over 40 Bloggers….

I want to add a couple of names to my list of over 40 bloggers.  Sometimes, because of the content of their blog or some things they allude to, I’ll think a fellow blogger may be over 40, but it’s just one of those things you can’t ask.  Right along with “When are you due?” and “Did you MEAN to do that?”

  9. What a pretty outfit. It works beautifully. And I like your blog: your earlier posts have real substance in them.

    Speaking of age, I'm not only over 40, I'm over 50! But that doesn't mean you can't have fun with fashion. I explore new looks all the time.

  10. Oh I know what you mean - I sometimes wonder why I seem to be the last person on the planet to discover an incredible blog!!! Now as for your shirt - that is one incredibly bad-ass piece - I've never seen anything like it before and you've nailed it!!! You look so incredibly gorgeous:). xoxo

  11. I like the subtle glistening part at the top of this dress. Such a great little accent. - Katy
