50 IS NOT OLD | SKINNY PANTS AND BOOTIESYou gurls were so nice yesterday! I feel downright dowdy today after all of your kind comments about yesterday’s look. I will say that I did love those colors in the cardigan and top. But, you can’t go through life wearing the same color, unless you’re my friends Marlene who always wears purple. I wonder if she listens to Prince and if her favorite song is “Purple Rain?” Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | SKINNY PANTS AND BOOTIESI got a great welcome home. When Joe and I got home Sunday night the two pooches were thrilled to see us. Beckley and Lucy Lu took turns running to me and then running to Joe. They were whining and jumping around like crazy. It is wonderful when you come home and someone is happy to see you. Monday morning was a different story, Lucy Lu was still prancing around but poor little Beckley was slinking around with his head down and his tail (what little bit he has) tucked between his legs. He didn’t want food and he acted like his stomach hurt. I, unfortunately, have seen these symptoms before and I knew he had to go to the Vet. After a pain shot, he is at least wagging his tail, just very slowly. Tomorrow he starts a round of antibiotics because he was running a fever. He is laying here at my feet while I type which is an improvement because he had been hiding under the bed before. Poor little baby 😟50 IS NOT OLD | SKINNY PANTS AND BOOTIESI don’t know if I have ever worn this top before. I know I have tried it on but I can’t remember ever wearing it. The sales tag was still attached so I hope I’ve not worn it before. Lol! I don’t remember anybody calling me Minnie Pearl so maybe I am okay. The sales tag said that I bought this at Versona and the inside tag read Halo. I love the burgundy color and that the neckline is a low scoop which helps to elongate my neck. But it is the sleeves that have the unique details of flat metal bronze brads and white circles that make the top special.

50 IS NOT OLD | SKINNY PANTS AND BOOTIESI have on my Ashton earrings, the ones I thought were too big but which have become my favorites. I think I was making up for forgetting my jewelry yesterday because I have on a ton today. Haha! My BELIEVE necklace is one you have seen before. Several of you have asked where you can get one and the best I can do is to send you to Amazon.  Click on that link and it will take you to some that are very similar and by the same brand. How do you like my little bird necklace? It is too cute!!! It is called the Hazel and I really like this. I think I will get a lot of wear out of it come Spring and Summer. There is only one week left in this month, so don’t forget that I am offering 15% off Plunder on orders over 50.00, I will send you a check for the discount.  Go to to shop from Plunder.50 IS NOT OLD | SKINNY PANTS AND BOOTIESI have had this leopard print bracelet for a long time but I have never taken pictures with it on before. There were two of these bracelets with different sayings. Mine says, “Be still my heart.” The tortoise link bracelet is one that I picked up forever ago to match a necklace I have. I believe I bought this at Belk’s when they were having a huge jewelry sale.50 IS NOT OLD | SKINNY PANTS AND BOOTIESI wasn’t sure if I wanted to wear these Isaac Mizrahi suede booties but I think they look alright. It is a little tricky wearing booties sometimes so you just have to play around and see what works. There have been many days where I take pictures with a pair of booties on and then go change. They will look great as I gaze down but when a picture is taken straight on they don’t look as good.

50 IS NOT OLD | SKINNY PANTS AND BOOTIESMy tan skinny pants are from Old Navy. They are pixie pants and that has to be my favorite style of pants. They fit great on me. A tip for buying the pixie pants is that if they are the skinny pants in the stretch material you might want to size up. If they are the chino style then just buy your normal size and you should be fine. If you are interested in the Dooney & Bourke satchel, look at this post for links.

    Cute look Tania, you’ve done it again with matching your amazing nails – Loooooove them!

    I posted about colour pops today:

    Off to Milan and am concerned about getting everything packed…

    I would love to try the microdermabrasion paste. I am using the lip serum now; I can get three uses out of one capsule. I shared my stock with my sister and she likes the results as well. She swears by R&F eye cream. I’m still kicking myself for not pulling the trigger on Plunder’s Lottie necklace- now it’s gone. Enjoy your day

    I would love to try the microdermabrasion paste. I am getting to that point where my skin needs more help than before. I have to agree about Old Navy’s pixie pants, I love the fit and I can’t say that about most pants I try on.

  • Janet

    I still haven’t tried the pixie pants but plan to try some on soon. I like this combination although I love you in yesterday’s colour. Like Marlene, I am crazy about purple and could almost wear it every day!

    Loved yesterday’s top and sweater! Today’s burgundy top is cute too, but the purple was just wow! 🙂
    I would love to try any R&F sample you’re offering.

    I would live to try the sample. I’ve been reading so many great things about R&F but am on the fence because of the price.

    I love your blug and look forward to it but I have a non-fashion question. I’m wondering how you came up with the name Beckley for your fur baby. I am originally from Oak Hill, WV and a neighboring town is Beckley. Just wondering if perhaps you have been there.

    • Tania
      February 21, 2017

      I did name him after that town. My husband and I used to go to the races in Cashmere and I picked up the name somewhere along the way. I thought it was cute. I had intended to name him Cashmere but he just looked like a Beckley instead.

    I’ve said this before, but I love those booties! Such a rich color. They look like they would go with a lot of different outfits too. Your leopard skin bracelet I’m lusting after! We don’t have a Belks here in Michigan so I’ll see if I can find a similar one online!

    This top reminds me of one my step mom (the 60’s model on my blog) just bought in Vegas with the fun detailing on the arms.
    I’m one of those that tends to take the tags off as soon as I get home, so then I really never know if I’ve worn it or not—ha ha!

    Love this top! The color is fab. I feel so bad for your Beckley. My Brutus is a 12 year old Schnauzer with arthritis in his back and legs. It’s so hard to see him when he hurts. I hope your fur baby feels better soon!

    My sister thinks purple is the only color there is. From home decor to fashion she has it in purple.

    I’m intrigued with R&F, but I have spent a lot of money on so called best face creams, etc. It is expensive and I’m 63, wondering if there is still hope! Lol! I would love any samples thrown my way! BTW, I love your style, personality and energy! Thanks, Dottie

    I’d love to try an R&F sample as well! I’m really interested in the lash boost too if you have information on it. thanks, Lynette

    I would also love to try a sample of the R an D product. I am sensitive to smell so I’m reluctant to try anything sight unseen (or smelled). Thank you.

  • Debbie

    I continue to love your fashion sense! I am toying with the idea of trying R & F. I have several questions. Is there a way we can communicate about the products? Thanks.

    I’m partial to purple, so loved your outfit yesterday. I never feel like I look good wearing booties with straight leg pants or dresses. Learning to just wear what I feel good in and not worrying so much if others feel the same – this can be a good or bad thing. LOL.

    Your blog is a bright spot in my day! Thanks for keeping me looking spunky! I am wondering about some of the “special” deals I see you wear from Plunder. I joined the Posse, but I don’t ever see anything about these fun special pieces you wear sometimes. Should I be checking somewhere new on their website? I really love the vibe of their jewelry……and would love more, but I am a big bargain hunter! Thanks…..

    I’d be really interested in trying a sample pack too!

      Hope you have plenty of samples, I would love to try one. I’m searching for a good line of facial products, nothing seems to work for me. Have a cabinet full of stuff from cheap drugstore to some very expensive ones. Always disappointed in the results never as promised. Enjoy your blog very much…..

    I would like to try the microdermabrasion paste. My skin has really started changing now that I am in my 50’s. I’ve looked at the R&F products but have no idea where I should start!
