SOMETIMES YOU GET WHAT YOU NEED

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is sticking out her tongue while wearing a black Rolling Stones tongue sweatshirt and a pair of jeans

Woohoo!!! The 2nd shot is in the books, and so far, I am feeling fine! I’ve been sitting in a recliner listening to the Rolling Stones’ top songs, and could it get any better than that? I forgot so many of their songs and was shocked at how many great ones they had. Joe and I sometimes tell each other, “you can’t always get what you what, but if you try real hard, you get what you need.”

Actually, I think that mine and Joe’s version is more like you get what you deserve. Lol! Do you gurls remember me telling you that I had recently gotten on a telemarketer call list, and they think my name is William Blevins? It is ridiculous how many calls that I get each day asking for William Blevins. I’ve answered the calls, ignored the calls, and nothing seems to work.

Finally, I just started blocking the numbers of every call that comes in that I don’t recognize. However, yesterday I saw a call come in from a number that I didn’t recognize, and I almost declined the call, but I decided to answer the call instead. The lady on the other end asked for Tania Stephens. Then she explained that she was in the accounting department for a company that I recently did a sponsored post with and wanted to confirm my payment information. Lol!

That dang William Blevins is costing me my sanity with telemarketer calls, and he almost cost me money also. Lol! Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get these calls to stop? They don’t come from the same phone number or city, so I am slowly going crazy!

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a black vintage style Rolling Stones tongue sweatshirt

I wore this Rolling Stones sweatshirt to get my shot yesterday. After my shot at my local Food City in the pharmacy, I decided to grab a Gatorade to stay hydrated. The store manager asked me if I even knew who the Rolling Stones were? I told him that the Stones were from my generation of music and that HE was the one who probably didn’t know who they were since he was in his 30s. Lol!

I have to admit, this is the most that I have ever paid for a sweatshirt, but I am truly obsessed with this shirt. It is so comfy, and it feels like I’ve had this sweatshirt for years. It is a vintage black shirt with a bright red logo that already has some distressing. The fit of the shirt is relaxed and oversized, I am wearing a medium, and it is still really oversized, which is the look that I wanted.

This is a shirt that I will grab repeatedly, and I think it will be perfect for the nights when we sit out on the patio around a fire pit. In my head, I see wearing this at the lake, roasting marshmallows, or visiting friends and sitting outdoors. As you can see, I have big plans for this shirt. The shirt also comes in white and blush, but I am partial to the vintage black.

I thought you might like to see the back of the shirt, which has the 1989 North American Tour schedule. I was very pregnant in 1989, so you wouldn’t have found me at any of those concerts. Lol!

Here is another way that I plan on wearing the sweatshirt. When I purchased the shirt several weeks ago, I knew that white jeans would be one way to wear the shirt. It is amazing to see how different the outfit looks by just changing the color of the jeans.

I also changed my shoes and put on a pair of espadrilles with black toes for this look. The espadrilles are more ivory than white, but they still looked great with the pants. I am wearing my usual size 9 in these shoes, and they fit great. The shoes are under $30.00, and these will be something that you can wear all spring and summer long.

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a pair of jeans and white sneakers

The Joe’s Jeans that I am wearing today are in a darker wash, and they have a raw hem. These are the Luna jean, and they are cigarette jeans. That means that they aren’t exactly skinny jeans, but they aren’t straight leg either. They are more skinny than straight, but they also have a loose fit. These are a great combination of skinny and loose. I am wearing a size 31 in the jeans since I know that I have to go up one size when I wear Joe’s Jeans. Here are some other jeans that are in a more affordable price range.

I didn’t get a great photo of the white sneakers that I am wearing, but I’ll try to upload a photo from the website so that you can see them better. These are by Superga, and I love the simple style of these sneakers. I had read that they were a favorite of Meghan Markle, which I have no idea if that is true or not. But, it intrigued me enough to give them a try.

I really like these sneakers, but I am going to send them back for a smaller size. I ordered my usual size 9 (40 UK), and they are a half-size too big. They are a great price, though, so if you are looking for a great pair of sneakers, you should give them a try.

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a pair of white jeans and espadrille shoes

I am wearing a pair of Vince Camuto white skinny jeans, and this is a great pair that isn’t too thin. That is what I hate about white jeans; you have to be careful about having the pockets shine though or having your underwear on display. There is nothing worse than having someone say, “so…we are wearing polka-dotted underwear today.” Ok, I was wrong; there is something worse; they could say, “so…you’re NOT wearing any underwear today.” Lol!

The website recommended sizing down in these jeans, but I ordered my usual size. When I buy white jeans, I don’t want them fitting me skin-tight, so ordering my usual size 30 worked out great. They fit great, but they aren’t too tight. These have a 30″ inseam, and I rolled them up today to show more ankle.

You might have noticed the watermark on some of my photos. I’ve had so many people steal my photos and create spam accounts that I thought I would experiment with a logo on my photos. But, do you think that they are too big or distracting?

    The watermark is barely noticeable. When I get calls now-if I don’t recognize the name or number I don’t answer. Nowadays-those people are so sophisticated that they can use a number in your area to fool you. I figure if the call is for me, the person will leave a message. I haven’t missed any important calls yet. My daughter was born in 1989, so I was pregnant then as well. I like the sweatshirt. The casual look is my style. Just that particular one is too pricey for me. Glad to hear you have gotten your 2nd dose of the vaccine.

    LOVE this sweatshirt too! Although out of my price range! I went to one of these concerts – San Francisco! The Stones were and still are -IMO- one of the best rock n roll bands ever! Absolutely, keep the watermark! It’s perfect! You might even want to make it bigger! Keep those hackers away! Have a great Sunday!

    Like your watermark. I think it’s a bit hard to read, but shouldn’t be any bigger. Also think it would work better on left side, where lamp top is. If not, it will always cut off your cute shoes. Love your posts. You inspire me. Keep up the good work!! Leslie

      Warning to my fellow gurls. I have a droopy eyelid condition. It runs in the family. Both my grandma and my dad had eyelid surgery. I read up on it and went to a plastic surgeon who did a Botox brow lift. It really works, I don’t have black shadows hanging over my eyes now. While I was there yesterday my doc told me she’d had lip injections and when she got the moderna shot her face swelled up terribly. This can be disfiguring and permanent. My warning is do not get that brand of COVID shots if you have facial or lip fillers.

      Now for the fun stuff! I went to a Rolling Stones concert in 1966 (about, was still in high school) at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. And again at the Oakland Coliseum about 6 yrs ago. Again foggy on dates. Needless to say the first one was a gas! The second one they all looked OLD and wrinkled. Sounded the same though.

    The best way to stop the calls is to not answer a number you do not recognize until after the third ring. These companies use a computer generated dialer that dials random numbers – sometimes the prefix will be similar to your number, or even a ‘borrowed’ number of someone you know, so you might pick up. If there is no answer the computer will disengage. As soon as you pick up the phone, the computer identifies your number as a ‘good’ number and you will continue to get calls.
    Why do I know so much about this – my son-in-law’s phone number was stolen and used to call thousands of people. Unfortunately he also received call backs from the people who received the calls and he received death threats, etc. The police had to get involved and it was alarming for my daughter and their young children as calls were coming in at all hours.

    I’m happy I read your preemptive line about not having any coffee in my mouth before clicking on your link. Made me laugh and it’s super cute on you.

    I’m including a link for you to a government run site called The National Do Not Call Registry. Simply register your cell phone, and up to 5 or more other numbers, and you most likely won’t receive those pesky calls. You will need to reregister every 6 months, but so worth it.

    All my best,

    It’s funny how the kids today listen to music from our generation…Rolling Stones, Def Leppard, Journey…I think it’s because the music now just isn’t as good! I get those crazy calls from all sorts of numbers too. If they don’t leave a voice-mail so I can tell who it is, I block the #. Don’t know how much it helps since they’ll call back on another #, but at least I feel like “HA! TAKE THAT!”

    I had the same problem just the day after you mentioned your calls. I got 13 in a row, all different numbers and all from CA. I blocked each and everyone. I’m getting a random call maybe every other day now which just goes to voicemail and then I go in and block it too.

        I prefer the sweatshirt with the denim over the white jeans, but it is a cute option. What stands out for me in this particular blog is not the fashion but rather your quote. “you can’t always get what you want, but if you try real hard, you get what you need.” How many times have we maybe wanted more, when we have been truly blessed when our needs are met? It made me stop and think how fortunate I have been. I’ve never gone hungry, I have a comfortable home, a decent wardrobe, I have friends and family that I love. And ya I’ve worked hard, but really could I ask for anything more??
