50 IS NOT OLD | NEW YEAR'S EVE OUTFITThis year is slowly coming to an end. This is a time of year when we look back and reflect on what we have done. As always there are highs and lows, good times and bad, and plenty of lessons that were learned. We can now look forward with high expectations of the coming new year. I can remember sitting by my radio and listening to the countdown of the year’s top hits. 50 IS NOT OLD | NEW YEAR'S EVE OUTFITBack in those days I would get my cassette recorder out and try to time it just right so that I could get all the song recorded without all the jabber from the DJ. I thought I was so cool. The next time I went to school I would tell everyone about my tape. We would compare our versions and try to decide who had done the best job. Lol! In middle Tennessee “the” radio program to listen to came out of Chicago. From memory, I am thinking it was something like WLS. Do you gurls remember Wolfman Jack???50 IS NOT OLD | NEW YEAR'S EVE OUTFITFor the first time in many, many, many years, Joe and I will actually be at a New Year’s Eve party. We normally are in bed by 10:00, (11:00 if we are living on the wild side) so I think we might have to try to get some sleep on Saturday during the day. Haha! Otherwise, you might me sound asleep on the couch that is in the women’s locker room. There is a live band that is coming to play for us and breakfast is going to be served at midnight. 50 IS NOT OLD | NEW YEAR'S EVE OUTFITThis is an outfit that I think would be fantastic for a New Year’s Eve party. It is elegant and sparkly but it is also comfortable for dancing. This sequined snake print tank top is by Karen Kane and it is at least 3 or 4 years old. I have NEVER worn it! I have never worn it because it was too little for me. I did a happy dance this morning and went running through the house to show Joe that it fit! He was more interested in why I didn’t yet have on my pants. He told me that was an interesting look for the blog. Lol!!!

50 IS NOT OLD | NEW YEAR'S EVE OUTFITI have on my Georgia bracelet for the first time. I have had this for a while but it is not something that I would normally wear for every day. I see a lot of people use this bracelet for weddings and bridesmaids. The snakeskin clutch is one that I bought at the QVC overstock outlet that is in town.

50 IS NOT OLD | NEW YEAR'S EVE OUTFITI know you are sick of these bracelets but I really like them. They just seem to go with EVERYTHING! Hugo, Kylie, and Ezra are their names.
50 IS NOT OLD | NEW YEAR'S EVE OUTFITMy necklace is called the Martha. It was one of my first purchases from Plunder. I have worn it several times since I bought it. The matching bracelet is the Edith but I decided against wearing it today. I couldn’t tell you what earrings I have on because I can’t see them. The black velvet blazer is by Izod. I looked back on my blog to see where I wore it (here) and was surprised to see where I bought the blazer. A thrift store for only $5.00! That is one of my favorite blog posts since I have been blogging. Be sure to check out the post.50 IS NOT OLD | NEW YEAR'S EVE OUTFITI have a pair of skinny jeans on and a pair of black booties by Marc Fisher. The jeans are mid-rise jeans from Old Navy and I bought the boots at the overstock store in town.

50 IS NOT OLD | NEW YEAR'S EVE OUTFITThe Lash Boost holiday special from Rodan and Fields officially ends on Monday, if supplies last. I think the Lash Boost will still be available at the same price, you just won’t get the free Lashes bag and mini eye cream. If you were thinking about ordering it anyway, then you might as well take advantage of the free items while they are available. ALSO, if you place an order as a PC, I will refund you $10.00!!!

Can you see yourself (or your daughter or granddaughters) taking advantage of an opportunity to “partner” with me? You can join with me on a journey that could be life changing. I am interested in taking on new business partners. I am interested in seeing where these opportunities can take me. SO, I am willing to help you join with me.

Joining Plunder is 99.00. That is not a huge amount of money for starting your own business but I want to make it even easier. If you join Plunder with me, I will offer to pay half of your kit back to you. If you are interested, then email me for the details at fiftyisnotold@gmail.com

Joining Rodan and Fields has three levels you can join at. If you join me in my business with at least the 395.00 kit, I will also offer to reimburse you half of your kit back to you. You could start a business and only have 200.00 invested, email me for the details at fiftyisnotold@gmail.com

Opportunities come in different forms and sometimes they come when we aren’t even looking. I can tell you honestly that I am so glad I decided to blindly follow my instincts, even though I had no idea where it was taking me. I can’t wait to see where it is taking me next. Come join me.

Anytime you would like to share my posts on Facebook or Twitter, I would appreciate that. It helps get my blog out to more people, and I am sure you just want to spread the entertaining sayings I have. Lol!

The comment section is at the end of the post, so keep scrolling. I look forward to reading all the comments, they make my day.

    Love the sparkly top with jeans. You look very slim. I also did the recorder thing, but mine was an old reel to reel. I liked Larry Lujack best. We are going out for an early evening tomorrow, wish I had that outfit. Happy New Year and thanks for being real.

    I totally love the outfit. You gave me some ideas for a casual but celebratory 60th birthday party in January. I didn’t want to get too gussied up so planned on wearing nice jeans with a black velvet jacket. I will look around the clearance rack for a similiar top. Thanks again!
    BTW I too had a cassette player and remember Wolf man Jack and I’m from Boston area.

      Susan, I have such fond memories of those days. I have not lost any weight recently but I had lost some earlier in the year. I am going to try to start watching what I eat after the holidays and start exercising a little more. (some would be more)

    Moma always made us a mock cocktail punch Ginger ale, lime sherbet and a maraschino cherry. My bother and sisters thought we were so elegant waiting on midnight with high hopes. Love the outfit. Not too dressy and not too casual. Hope this new year holds everything you could wish for.

    I grew up in central Indiana and WLS was my favorite station! Weird what you remember from teen years, I remember the names of some of the DJ’s ( in late 60’s/early 70’s) – Dex Card, Ron Riley and Art Roberts. I remember Wolfman Jack but not on that station. I was thrilled when I could hear WNEW in NYC with Cousin Brucie. Love your sequin top! And Happy New Year!

    Hi Tania! I have just started following your blog after admitting I was in a fashion rut and needed help. What a blessing you have been! I know this sounds crazy, but I would love to see how you organize your closet! How do you keep all your clothes and shoes and jewelry and purses so that it is al accessible and you can see what you have? Have a wonderful 2017!

    Haha! I remember doing that with my cassette recorder, we used to press pause and release it just as we thought the DJ had stopped talking (not always successfully). Happy days ? The sparkly top is fab.

    Super cool outfit Tania – and wish you lots of fun at your New Years Eve Party. We have a tradition of going to friends of ours each year for New Years Eve, there’s always a huge party and I am in charge of dessert. Last year we celebrated differently and this year we are back to our usual tradition – I am so excited – like a little child 😉

    Here is my summary of 2016: http://funkyforty.com/looking-back-at-2016/
    Wishing you a fabulous New Years Eve and looking forward to 2017.

  32. I always imagine a New Year’s outfit a little more “colorful”; especially from YOU! ? Maybe the top looks sparklier in person.
