No, I am not talking about my outfit. This is one of my very favorite sayings of all time. I use this saying whenever anyone asks how I feel. My answer is, “I’m practically perfect in every way!” Joe has his own saying, he says, “I’m twisted steel and sex appeal!” HahahaIt is funny when I tell people the saying, you can just see this look come over their face. They don’t know how to react to what I just said. Lol! The saying is from Mary Poppins. Did you know that? She was using a measuring tape to measure the children when she comes to stay with them. The tape for each child said something like, extremely stubborn and suspicious, or does not put away their things. Then the children want to know what the tape would say if she, (Mary Poppins), was measured. The tape then says, “Practically Perfect In Every Way.”I love the colors in this outfit. This is one way that I wear black. In fact this is black, black, and black. BUT, if you notice, next to my face is color. The orange is the main color of the sweater, so that brightens up the whole look. This sweater is many years old; it is one of my very favorite clothing items. I like the yellows and the oranges, and it even has some lime green mixed in. The pattern is pretty cool, with swirls, dots, and circles. The top is by Joseph A, and I have no idea where it came from.
Printed Sweater: Similar | Similar | Similar | PlusI chose to wear a black tank top under my cardigan. This is an old tank top that I bought at Victoria’s Secrets years ago. I like this tank because it is long. Some tanks are way too short. You can’t see because my pants are black, but the tank is below my cardigan by about three inches.
Black Tank Top: Karen Kane | Talbots (Misses, Petites, Plus)The ankle pants are by Old Navy, they are Pixie Pants. This type is the skinny, or the stretchy version. When I purchase that version, I will go up a size. If I purchase the twill Pixies, I order true to size. The shoes are a Marc Fisher gladiator sandal called Maribell. These shoes are not expensive, they just look it. They are manmade material, but I really like this sandal. I know some of you mentioned you were going to order this pair, let me know how you liked them if you did.
Old Navy Pixie Pants: PlusI kept the jewelry pretty simple for this look. I am wearing a vintage three ball drop necklace that I bought at the vintage fashion show last month. My black bracelets are the By The Book bracelets. I have 5 of these bracelets, but these two are my favorites. They are Philippians 4:13, and Jeremiah 29:11. I’ve carried this purse so many times, you probably have looked at it all you want. If you are curious about the purse, then look back a week or so, and you will find plenty of links to similar ones.So, for the next week, when someone asks how you are, tell them you are “Practically Perfect In Every Way!” Say it a few times, say it till you believe it, because I think every one of YOU are “Perfect”, just like you are.
Speaking of “practically perfect in every way,” have you seen Deborah from Fabulous After 40? She is once again featuring me, along with a couple other ladies. as styleblazers over 50. Check her out!
And now that I know you can leave comments (that is the most I have EVER had) I will be expecting them from you daily. Hahaha?
