Today is the Ageless Style Linkup and the chosen theme was for a vintage item. I love vintage so this theme was right down my alley. Buying in thrift shops, yard sales, estate sales, and vintage fashion shows are all wonderful ways that you can have a little history in your wardrobe. Everyone today will be showcasing an item on its “second time around.” Mine is really on its second time around because these are the pictures I used in November 2015. Lol!I bought this jacket in Georgia when I attended a vintage fashion show in October 2015. This vintage lambswool jacket was not in the show, it was hanging on the rack for anyone to purchase. I had looked at it several times but no one had tried it on. Finally, I couldn’t stand it any longer so I grabbed the jacket up and tried it on. I knew that I would wear it with jeans, I just had a picture in my mind. I walked down the hall to look in the mirror and while I was gone, two different ladies told my mother that if I didn’t take the jacket they wanted it. It is funny how they had all overlooked the jacket not seeing its potential. My daughter-in-law gets things from her sister all the time. The sister is getting rid of the items in a yard sale and my DIL buys them. The next time she wears the items her sister will want it back. “You didn’t want this, you were getting rid of it!” and then her sister will say, “But, now you showed me how to wear it, I want it back.” Isn’t that the way it sometimes is? We don’t see the “how” to wear something until we see it on someone or on a mannequin. This was the label on the inside of the jacket. M J could stand for Mary Jane or Margaret Jones, but I have decided it stands for Margie and James, my two parents! This jacket was meant to be mine. Lol! Did you notice the mink pocket flaps? They are not real pockets but these flaps take the elegance level up a notch or two. I would love to know the history of this jacket. Did it go to parties or just to church? Was it owned by someone younger or someone old? How did the jacket come to be in a vintage fashion show? I promise you the next time I wear this jacket it will be more elegant. I would love to see the jacket all dressed up in finery. I could just see a mink pillbox hat with this. Guess what I am going to in search for when I go the vintage fashion show. Did you read this, Mom? If you have one you better set it back for me. Be sure you check out all the other ladies in the Ageless Style Linkup. I am anxious to see what they are wearing.

The pictures above were from November 2015, 16 months ago. Am I crazy or do I look younger now? Holy crap, I looked bad!!! Why didn’t you gurls tell me I was looking like, I can’t even describe it. I can’t see exactly what has changed but dang, it has changed!This photo was from the same month. I had to go back and look to make sure it just wasn’t a bad batch of photos. The lashes are very noticeable, the eyes are very noticeable, and the overall complexion is overall noticeable. I am flabbergasted!I am not saying that to toot my horn. I am just stating facts. I started using Rodan and Fields in late February or the first of March 2016 and I am thrilled with the results. I do feel like I am aging backwards. 😉 The Lash Boost bundle deal is only available until March 9th. The deal is for a 20% savings for the Lash Boost and any Regimen when purchased as a bundle.
