PURPLE IS NOT JUST FOR BARNEY

Saturday, March 19, 2016

50 Is Not Old | PurpleBring on the Saturday shopping spree!!! My shopping will be limited to vintage items, but you gurls are free to splurge on anything that comes to mind. My job here is to bring lots of things to your mind. Haha 50 Is Not Old | PurpleI have to share a quick story with you before we go shopping. My brother and his wife are in Livingston this weekend, and we were talking about their daughter, who is 5 years old. This child is really smart, (I know everyone thinks their child is smart, but she really is) she was able to read when she was three. It was bedtime, and Allison was not wanting to go to bed. She was coming up with all the normal excuses. She would go into their bedroom and asked for water, she was thirsty. Next she went into their room and asked for food, she was hungry. Finally, she went into their room and said, “we forgot to say our prayers, so let’s all bow our heads.” Everyone bowed their heads and said their prayers, then she left and went back to her room. This time she didn’t come back, and my brother and his wife were so happy that she must have finally gone to sleep. At least 15 to 20 minutes had passed, when they got to noticing that the phone was not on the dresser. So they got up and sneaked down the hall to look in Allison’s bedroom. There she was, happy as a lark, sitting in the bed, playing games on the phone. Hahaha  Pretty dang smart, get them to close their eyes and then sneak out with the phone. LOL!50 Is Not Old | PurpleI’m loving this violet color. It is one of my favorite shades of purple. I bought this from the outlets in Florida this past month. The sweater, t-shirt, and scarf are all from J. Crew. Since I bought all these pieces at an outlet, they were not on their site. Here is a similar misses cardigan, and here is a plus size. I love this cardigan, the colors are beautiful, and it is on sale.

I am trying out some pictures, as well as the highlighted links. Let me know which way you like best. Here are several scarves, in different shades of purple, that I thought were cute.

50 Is Not Old | PurpleI am wearing a pair of sole society sandals in a slate gray color. They have the little studs on them that are the latest rage. This is the first time I have worn these sandals this year, I think they are perfect for spring.

50 Is Not Old | PurpleBertha and Sandy decided to join me. Bertha even decided to smile, much better than the last time she joined me. Sandy on the other hand, is about the same as last time, having fun as usual. I love their outfits, perfect for working for free for my mother. Haha I will try to link to their outfits next week. Honestly, my grandbabies are spending the night with me, and I would rather play with them instead of looking up shopping links. Sorry….50 Is Not Old | PurpleAfter a few normal pictures, this is what always happens. We couldn’t be serious, if we tried. And we never try very hard. Lol! You missed the photo where Bertha tried to get her leg up high enough to kick my rear.50 Is Not Old | PurpleThe three amigos hope you have a good weekend. We are off to the vintage fashion show.

    My favorite outfit so far (I only found you from a link on Grace and Beauty about a week ago). Love that shade of purple! MUCH prefer the pictures included to just the links. Also love that you don’t take life, or yourself, too seriously. I guess that comes to us with life lived – I am 61 and have learned those things, too. Although, sometimes I have to remind myself. Thanks for the blog!

    You and the girls rock! Love that purple cardigan and your scarf. I love vintage clothing – I love the styles of the 50 ‘s and 60’s via Doris Day, Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy. Good luck with the show!

    What fun! I have never heard of a vintage fashion show in Savannah, Ga. Hey, might be an idea to travel and have one. I would love to attend. I am so glad to see you enjoying your friends together today. Relationships get more valuable as we age. I am afraid I have not been good keeping in touch with friends since I work so much. Definitely need to work on that. I think I’ll be adventurous and try on a violet top if I see one shopping. You always encourage me to step out of my comfort zone. Have a great weekend. I have my grandbabies tonight to for an early Easter.

    Love the purple outfit, and I am usually not a fan of purple, but this whole combination is great (AND it’s matches Bertha’s hair! :-O
    You gurls look like you having a hoot at the event! Any event you three amigo’s participate in has to benefit from all the laughter and positive vibes you put out! Have (even more) fun ladies!

    Tania you look awesome in that outfit! I love the colors together, really pretty. Loving your shoes too, but tell me, do they have any cushioning? Hope you and your friends had a great time at the fashion show. Bet there were lots of laughs.

      Lori, the shoes don’t have a lot of cushioning. I actually changed shoes, right before I went out the door, because I knew I would be on my feet all day and was afraid they would hurt. I didn’t want to chance it. Haha
