HOW TO GET A LUXURIOUS FEELING FOR UNDER FIFTY DOLLARS

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a luxurious cashmere sweater with cheetahs embroidered on it, and a pair of black coated jeans

Out of the mouths of babes. My granddaughter, Emersyn, spent the night with me on New Year’s Eve, and she saw the New Year arrive while I slept. Lol! She did wake me up to tell me that it was after 12 and wished me a Happy New Year, so I didn’t miss seeing it by much. I didn’t start out the New Year in exactly the way that I had wanted though, and it was my fault. No, I didn’t overindulge in the spirits; I simply tried some new hair products that were sent to me.

The products had a scent that bothered me, and I eventually had to wash my hair again to remove the smell. However, the damage had already been done and I woke up with a sinus headache. I started feeling better as the day went on and mentioned that I was glad that my headache was leaving since I couldn’t have my usual headache remedy of a Coke and french fries. Emersyn wanted to know why I couldn’t have that, and I told her that it was because I made a resolution to only drink black coffee and water in January. I also made a resolution to not eat sugary snacks like cakes, pies, candy, or ice cream, so January is not going to be a fun month in the Stephens household.

She cocked her head at me, and I asked her if she knew what a resolution was. She said, “is it like a war or something?” No, that would be a revolution, this is a resolution which is kind of like making a promise that you try to keep. She immediately replied, “oooooh, could I make a resolution?” I told her she could, but we had to figure out what she was going to promise. I named several different things that she could do, and she kept shaking her head no to each suggestion. Finally, I said, “how about you make a resolution to not tell any lies in January?” She looked at me and said, “you know what?” “I’m just a kid, I think I am going to keep having fun, and let you adults do the resolutions!” Dang, to be a kid again. Lol!

Y’all, at least I can still have fun wearing this incredibly soft cashmere-blend sweater. I love the feel of the material against my skin; it makes me feel special. I am getting hooked on all of the cashmere sweaters that are on sale right now and I am starting to get spoiled.

This luxurious feeling sweater is extra cute because of the embroidered cheetahs that adorn the front. I prefer anything that is embroidered over screenprinted, it just looks so much nicer. The sweater has a relaxed fit and the wide ribbing at the hemline, the cuffs, and the neckline are very comfortable and non-binding. I am wearing a size 1 (8-10), and I love the fit since it doesn’t show any of my extra baggage. The sweater is on sale for 50% off, so now is a great time to get this one of a kind sweater.

You might have noticed that I tried two different shoe styles with this outfit. I like adding the same color shoe as my pants so that it elongates my legs. So, I put on these pointy-toe ankle boots from Vince Camuto to see if I liked the look. These boots have a chunky stacked heel that is super stable and easy to walk in. These boots have a unique look with the brown sole and the black upper. The boots run true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 9.

After I tried the ankle boots with the look, I decided to try a dressy pair of shoes. These leopard print pumps have a 2 1/2 inch heel which is a medium-size heel, and fairly easy to walk in. This pair is by Sam Edleman, but they have been sold out for a while. However, there are several that are very similar and they are on sale.

These coated black jeans are stunning! They have a look of leather, the feel of a worn pair of jeans, and style galore. These jeans have a lot of stretchiness, so they don’t feel binding at all. The jeans look great dressed up or down, and I can’t wait until spring rolls around so I can wear these with a white t-shirt. I LOVE the look of black jeans and a white tee! These jeans run true to size and I am wearing my normal size 10 in these.

  2. My resolution is not to be as hard on myself this year. I know that no one is perfect, but my brain enjoys beating me up for every misstep. I also wanted to buy fewer clothes this year, but, we can all sit back and get a good laugh at that one.

    I suffered with allergies for years until I finally found a good allergist who pin pointed my issue. I’m on two medications that work so well & I have not had a sinus headache in three years now. I’m older then you & I can tell you as you age your allergies will change. One constant source of Irritation for me is pine trees aka as a Christmas tree which send me sneezing. Way off topic, I know, but I swear by my allergist. Love all these Chico’s looks. Can’t wait till California opens up again!

      I don’t really have allergies exactly. It is just certain smells that will set me off. I hate going past a cosmetics counter or walking into Bed, Bath and Beyond because of all of the scents.

    You look wonderful today. I like the cheetah sweater. Your hair looks great too. I know what you mean about scented products……I have tried many hair products only to find out that I cant stand the fragrance. It gives me a headache. I also use unscented laundry detergent and other products. It is a real problem.

      I am not sure why companies think that they need to add scents. I always try to buy unscented when possible.

    Coke and French fries….hmm. You might try some electrolytes. I’m not sure the starch in the fries was what worked or the seed oils either, but probably the salt. Also cola is full of various salts as well. The only other thing I can think of is sugar which you are well to avoid. I sometimes get headaches from clenching my teeth. I find plain old Tylenol works plus a lot of water. I buy my electrolytes from equip but there’s others as well. Hope your headache goes away! In my neighborhood it’s customary to shoot weapons into the sky for celebrations. We also get a barrage of illegal fireworks for any holiday but New Year’s Eve is worst because the loudest noise is concentrated. It started a few days before and ended at about 12:30 and then last night I had to call the police at 11:00 pm to report loud live music and a PA system in the street behind us! I’m making a resolution to buy better ear plugs!

      I am thinking that it is the salt from the fries and the sugar and caffeine from the coke that helps with my issues. I take Tylenol, but it will not help me when this happens.

      Sheryl, my eating lifestyle is not one to copy. I’ve been eating everything in sight, especially sweets since Halloween. That is why I am making a resolution to not eat sweets during January. One month at a time.
