Fashion Blog – For The Everyday Woman

DSC_0124If you like fashion at all, you are probably aware that the New York Fashion Week was this month. These shows occur twice a year, Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter. There are four major locations for these events, New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Designers flock to these events to showcase their upcoming fashion lines.  Celebrities flock to these events to be seen and show off their fashion style.  And fashion bloggers flock to these events to blog about the designers, the stars, the styles, and promote their blogs.

DSC_0003If you watched any of the video’s or read any of those blog’s, you would think EVERYONE dressed like this. Really??? Maybe it is just me, but I can’t see a time when I would wear probably 80-90 percent of those styles. Not everybody attends red carpet events, or gets an invitation to an A-Lister party. So, what are the rest of us to wear?

DSC_0008I’m over 50, living in a small town, and somewhat computer challenged. So why would I start a fashion blog? I decided to start a blog featuring outfits that I wear on a daily basis. I know there is nothing new about that concept. There are hundreds of fashion blogs out there, and my shopping opportunities are limited because of where I live. Cato’s, Rue 21, and Peebles are the only clothing stores in my small little town. It is a 2 hour drive to get to any other stores, and even then you are limited. You learn really fast to work with what you’ve got. Does that mean you can’t look nice? Absolutely not!

2015-09-23 10.40.54I love looking at J’s Everyday Fashions, she was probably the first fashion blog that I started following. She always looks really nice, but she is also really young, and her dresses are a little too short for me. If you have the legs for short dresses, then wear what makes you happy, but I prefer a little longer style. Jo-Lynne Shane was one of my inspirations to take the plunge into the fashion blogger world. She dresses for everyday life, and that is what most of us do. We go to work, watch the kids, cook supper, in other words, we are just everyday women.

DSC_0024_2I don’t foresee New York, London, Milan, or Paris in my future, but that’s okay by me. I appreciate your stopping by and would love to hear your comments.

I’m linking up with Jolynne Shane today on Fashion Friday. Please stop in an check out all the great blogs who will be joining us.

  1. I’m going home after a long teaching career. I’m very interested in blogging and this post was extremely helpful. I am passionate about fashion, and hope to venture down that avenue in the blogging world. It is very overwhelming, but I feel I am up for the challenge. It’s nice to know there is support out there. You inspire me.
    I’ll keep you posted on my journey. Hopefully I’ll be in a fashion picture with you and friends at a fashion bloggers’ conference someday in the near future.
    Thanks so much!

  2. “Great Post, I chose to focus on the crowdfunding niche. It was a 2 billion dollar industry last year and is projected to be a 5 billion dollar industry this year. I recommend using Fiverr to use graphic designers for first time bloggers. I did use the logo designed for five dollars at the top of my site (bottom now) but stopped using it because it didn’t look good on mobile.

    What do you think about just having your site’s name at the top without a graphic design so the site looks good on mobile? I love the premium wordpress theme that I use and didn’t want to change it.”

    Tania – I love your blog. I grew up in Roanoke and my sister lives in Monroe County in WV so I can identify with your location. I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma now but reading your blog puts me right back in SW Virginia. You’ve come up with some great looking outfits and I especially enjoy your use of color. Thanks for you inspiration. Sixty-three is not old either! Sallie

  5. I love how you put the information, in a way that we all get it and love it!
    As I would express it, doing a great post takes a lot of Brain power, and burns a lot of Neurons! But if you do it right, you get to change someone else´s life, when they read you— So, Let´s burn some Neurons!

    I love that you are making the small town stores work for your fashion needs. You really put together some fabulous looks! Love those jeans in the first photo and the jacket and pearls step it all up a notch. I moved from a VERY large city to a much more rural area in 2007 and I still sometimes struggle with the stores offered here. Guess the city shopping spoiled me a teensy bit. xo

      It’s funny how you get used to making do. When I go to Atlanta to visit my sister! The shopping is over whelming. I usually buy less there, too many choices. Lol

  9. HI. I love your blog and the fact that you told readers that Fashion Week isn’t for every day looks that most of us wear who have a “real” life. I am over 60 but still love fashion and like to look up to date. You Southern gals seem to be so fashionable. I have friends from Tennessee who love fashion and love to shop. I liked the look you posted with that $2.00 top because we don’t have to spend a lot of money to look great. My mantra right now is “Shop your own closet first,” because I have quite a few clothes. It’s all about being creative and finding new ways to wear what you have. Looking forward to your next posting.

    Tania I discovered your blog today and am so excited … I love how you dress. I struggle with how to dress and put together outfits I have a closet full of clothes and don’t seem to buy the “right stuff” or know how to put things together. I look forwarding to reading all your posts and finding out where you shop to find these gorgeous outfits, as I too live in a small town.

  16. Lovely outfits! You do look beautiful – 50 or not! I agree with you that so many bloggers post outfits that may be fashion forward, but not like anything I see worn in real life. I much prefer looking at outfits that woman actually wear. It’s fun to get inspiration form each other that way!

    Hi, I am Ada. I found you from one of the link-ups. First of all, I love the name of your blog. It is true: 50 is not too old. And the name shows your confidence!!

    Secondly, I love your style. All 4 outfits here are great. but I think the 2 middle looks are my favorite. I love patterns and I love a good pair of patterned pants. Both of yours are gorgeous and you styled them so well.

    I welcome you to stop by my blog as well.

    Have a great weekend!!

    P.S. Come join my link-up on Monday Oct 5th and Wednesday Oct 7th. Thanks.
