Here are those “to die for” colors for this Fall, 2016. And all ages can wear these, too! Wonder what color your new handbag should be? What about a new scarf or belt? I vote for SPICY MUSTARD’, also called Ochre, Dark Marigold, etc. Well, check these colors out, but don’t wait too long. As soon as those hot days cool off and start to fade away, you’ll want that new “sprint” of color to carry you off as you parade down Main Street, USA.

BELTS!! Which Loop are you on?

2016 Belt Loop Style

If you chose to wear a belt, it is important not only where you wear the belt on your body shape, but how it looks on the garment itself. If you do not have a true waistline and have an apple shape, then wearing a belt higher or lower will distract from a thick middle. If you are fortunate to have a pear shaped body and have a real waist, then you can certainly wear your belt on the true waist of a dress or tunic.

Latest Project for Spring

Each Season I get excited about either redoing something old, adding a new twist to something used, or buying something new to add to what I call my “On the Hanger” wardrobe. While, I have trouble saying good-bye sometimes to older fashions, I seem to find uses for most of them eventually!! I found this purse for 99 cents, cleaned it up, painted it and made a tassel out of denim/indigo. Navy is big again and I am so happy! Loved to wear Navy when I was very young and now I am anticipating that thrill again. I hope you will enjoy the 2016 Year of Navy and all the different color accessories yourself!

Bodysuits Are Big, Repeat 1972-73!!!!

If you were a young person in 1972-73, then you might have had a bodysuit! I had a white stretch lacy long sleeve that I wore with my flared jeans that had little red stars embroidered on them! I loved it and wore it with a long velvet Maxi also at Christmas. The one downside for me at the time was, I was tall, 5′ 10 1/2′, and lengthwise it was hard to find them long enough. Lucky for us now, I have already seen some online for Tall!
Why not take a look online and see what you might want to pair with that cute Demin skirt, new pair of long jean shorts or if you are going to be adventurous, maybe a new pair of flares??   Spring/Summer 2016 is coming soon.  I’ll be looking with you.

DENIM IN YOUR CLOSET

Where’s the Denim? Surely you must have a denim dress, skirt, blouse, shirt, purse or something you’ve kept from a few years back or even another decade! I like classic, so I pick up different selections with makeover ideas when I browse sales, used clothing stores and hang out at the clearance rack.

For instance, several years ago, I picked up a Liz Claiborne long blue denim dress with pockets and wore a few times with and without a belt or scarf. Of course, it is almost a Maxi length. so I figured I would eventually alter the length.  And YES!  This year’s Midi, Minis and classic knee lengths gives a 64 year old lots of choices!

You probably acquired a jacket over the last 10 ten years, so you right now you can focus on that dress, skirt or purse!
