Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a navy blazer with a colorful scarf, bootcut jeans, and navy espadrillesLadies, you don’t hear me vent very often, but today I am going to get on my soapbox. There is a special place in you know where for people who try to prey on the scared, the elderly, the hurting, and those who believe everything they hear or see. I got an email yesterday from someone who called himself a Reverend. The opening of his email started with, “May the peace of the Lord be with you and your families.”
Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a sleeveless blouse with ruffles, bootcut jeans, and navy espadrillesSounds nice so far, but then he goes on to tell me:

“A clear revelation was giving to me about you. I know you will wondering how I got your email, I write to you now as I was directed to. You have done well and you are a good woman, You care so much for people around you. But God loves you more that’s while He sent me to you.
Now my vision about you and what was show to me that want to happen. 
They are family members that are not happy with your success and are very jealous of you and they are planning to attack you, by making an arrangement to put you in the sick bed, which you may not survive from it. God really love you that’s why this things are show to me. 
God want you to be mindful of your environment.
And also for this to pass away, you have to do more in charity, sow a seed of about $7000 in the church, and pray for three  days with water mix with little salt and bath with it, for three days. After the the three days prays you can now go and sow the seed. And also let no one knows about it. And may God help you as you listen to His Word. 
Note: You can go to any charity organization close to you. But for the sowing of the seed contact me back and I will instruct you. 
May God Protect You and your household from every unknown enemies In Jesus Name Amen.”
Aside from the horrible grammar, I am appalled! I am having a hard time even articulating how outraged I am that some jerk would use this time of uncertainty in our world to try and swindle people out of 7,000. I have all kinds of jokes about the saltwater bath, and I would like to know who my family members are that aren’t happy with me. But, all of that aside, I want you to remember that even in times like these, there are always going to be thieves, liars, and cheats, so make sure that you stay vigilant along with washing your hands. ? Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old wearing a navy blazer with a colorful scarfI hope all of you enjoyed yesterday’s blog post on pajamas. I don’t stay in my PJs all day long, but I want them to be comfortable when I am wearing them. Today’s look is a whole lot different. I had to go out to work at the lumber company for a while, so I thought I would share with all of you my outfit, and why I chose certain items.
Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a ruffled sleeveless blouseI am not a huge fan of ruffles. I love them on other people, and I love how feminine they look. But, for the most part, I shy away from wearing them. However, there are a few exceptions, and this shirt is one of them. I love it when ruffles frame your face! I have a dress that I love (Joe hates), and this shirt reminds me of it. (see here) This crepe top is beautiful, feminine, and flattering. I love the deep v-neck that you can control how low it goes. The ruffles bring your eye up to your face, so remember to smile when you are wearing this. I am wearing a size 10 in this top, and it fits me perfectly. You can dress up this top for a business meeting, or you can wear it with jeans for a casual look. It is machine washable, and it comes in three other colors. Best of all…it is only 16.00! Here is the link!
Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a colorful scarf over her faceSo, you might have noticed that I wore a scarf today. This is a vintage scarf that I’ve had for years, and I love it for its bright colors that remind me of the ocean. I decided to wear a scarf because I am waiting for masks to get here from my sister. (Supposed to arrive later today) The point of a mask is to keep you from touching your face while you are out in public. Most masks, except for the N95 masks, don’t protect you from catching the virus. But, anything that will keep you from touching your face can help you to protect yourself.
I figured that I could add this adorable scarf to my look, and when I needed to go inside the store, PO Office, etc., then I could tie it tighter around my face to serve as a reminder to keep my hands away. It is time for us to learn to improvise when we can. You can make your own masks from almost anything. Check out YouTube for instructions on how to make them from coffee filters, bras, socks, bandanas, or anything else that you have on hand. Or, order from websites that are making them or from small entrepreneurs on Etsy. Remember that the tighter the weave of the material you use to make a mask, the better it is at filtering out particles. Those high thread count (over 600) pillowcases make great masks. You can always line these with coffee filters or paper towels to try and up the filtering. The more layers and filters you have, the harder it is to breathe with the mask on. So, you might want to practice before you go out in public. Here is a video from the CDC showing how easy it is to make your masks.

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a navy blazer with a colorful scarf, bootcut jeans, and navy shoesI am cold by nature, so I added a navy blazer to keep me warm. A blazer is something that I will wear all summer long because I am in air-conditioned areas for the most part. Blazers keep you warm, they flatter your figure, and they dress up any outfit. Just putting on a blazer makes you look much more professional. This knit blazer is one that I’ve had for a long time, but I pull it out every year. I love the knit fabric because it moves with you instead of feeling binding. I recently purchased a red one and a taupe one also because I love the style so much.

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a navy blazer, bootcut jeans, and navy espadrillesThe other day, I did a post on Jeans Under $100.00. (here) I showed you a pair of “vintage style” bootcut jeans from Jag jeans. I was wearing a size 10 in that post, and I mentioned that they were a tad too big for me. So, I sent them back and then reordered a size 8, which fits me to a tee. I love these jeans, and I hope you ordered them when I showed them to you. BECAUSE they are all sold out now!

I am wearing a pair of round-toe espadrille wedge slingbacks from Vionic. Boy, that is a mouth full! Lol! I’ve heard so many people talk about their love for Vionic shoes, that I decided to give them a try. This is my first time wearing them, so I don’t have an opinion yet. Do any of you wear these shoes, and if so, why do you love them?

  1. Oh my word; the nerve some people have. Their time will come.

  2. LOVE the outfit, especially the vintage scarf! Ugh on the scammers…..thank goodness their grammar stinks! But it must work because they keep on doing it. I only donate to things that are near and dear to me; I have a lot of needy friends too that I try to help when I can. Vionics are recommended for folks that have foot pain (typically from plantars fasciitis) but I haven’t found one that I thought was cute and comfy, and miraculously, during this pandemic, my foot is feeling a lot better!

    1. Welcome, Becky! I hope you enjoy the blog and visit me daily.

  3. These scam artists have such pathetic English, they make me laugh and I never click on someone I don’t know. Easy for me though because I no longer blog.
    I love your top. That’s the style I like in tops because being busty, I can’t wear knit tee shirts. These cute little tops like this one are my basics under a jacket or cardigan. They just skim the body. I need this one. Love the beautiful scarf. Have a wonderful Easter!

  4. I love my vionic shoes especially the sandals. It is nice to find comfy shoes that are actually cute. I have spent hours at amusement parks with my grandkids in Florida and my feet have been happy all day

  5. Love this outfit. I feel exactly how you do about ruffles. I remember that dress and you looked spectacular! I also LOVE this scarf. I am surprised to read the comments about Vionic shoes. I thought they were a high end shoe.

  6. I too got what I thought was a scam. I had posted a Palm Sunday greeting from my church. In the replies the first one was from supposedly Ellen Degeneres! Only spelled wrong. If u clicked on the link they would send you money! I think they were just trying to get your info. I did not do it. My daughter said , but she does give awayba lot of things. Since i am not a big fan of hers, i didnt click. Maybe I am too cautious?

  7. Sue Epling says:

    I’m with you on these evil no good people preying on those who are already vulnerable!! Horrible
    Yes, protect others by wearing something over your face, we’re all in this together.
    As far as Vionic goes, they are very comfortable but in my opinion cheaply constructed, especially for the price point! I received a pair of open toe sandals, wore them a few times and they are peeling!! I contacted Customer Service and their warranty policies are very strict. I would caution, buyer beware

  8. Hi Tania! Love your outfit! Would you please share where you got your earrings? I’ve been looking for a pair of hoops to wear this spring and summer.

  9. spacegeek says:

    The mask will also protect others from YOU should you have the virus without any symptoms (very possible).

  10. Christine says:

    Thank you so much for highlighting these scams. My 80 year old father has fallen for both email and telephone scams for years. So much so that we had to get him a “Grand Pad” tablet where we have to ok who emails or calls him ahead of time. Thank you also for promoting the use of a cloth mask. Cute outfit too! Happy Easter to you and your family.

  11. I love this outfit today and I checked out your dress that Joe hates. Lol, it’s beautiful and looks great on you.
    I’m wearing a scarf as a mask too because the gown I live in is requiring all residents to wear a mask while in public.
    Stay safe.

  12. I love and pinned your outfit today. I love scarves and would love to see you add them as options, like you did today….and not just during pandemics! 🙂

    I enjoy your daily posts and the fact that you are such a real, genuine person! Don’t change.

  13. Yep, there’s a special place…
    Beautiful blouse. It reminded me of your pink dress (which I love) before you mentioned it.

  14. I look forward to your post every day. You are a beautiful woman inside and out, and I love how real you are!!!! Live the blouse and the price point. Trying to remain faithful and not fearful during these trying days!

  15. Rhonda Christopher says:

    It is amazing the lengths people will go to….have these people no conscience at all? Truly, one day they will have to stand before the Lord…woe to them.

  16. Love this look! I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy!

    1. Thanks, Ann. I hope you are staying safe also.

  17. Patty Hamilton says:

    I love Vionic shoes due to the support they give to my low arch, Scarf looks great!

    1. Karen from Como says:

      I have asthma and chemical allergies so I had a face mask before they were fashionable. Your scarf is more beautiful then my mask but serves the same purpose-keeping us from breathing in harmful substances like fragrances and viruses. And I stopped shaking hands about 2 years ago. The rest of of the world is just now catching up! I love Vionics for their arch support and comfort. I feel like I am walking on a cloud. I own 4 pair and realized that in some styles they use cheaper materials which means the shoes don’t look good for long.

    2. The support is what I had heard about. I don’t need a lot of support, so I wasn’t sure if they would be something that I would like.

  18. Just make sure that the material used for a “mask” is washable. I made mine out of cotton bandanas so after each wear, I just toss in the washer & dryer.

    I have a pair of Vionic flip flops and love the arch support they provide.

    1. Yes, it needs to be washable or I’ve also heard that you can microwave them to sanitizer them.

  19. Good morning Tania! Great advice both for being mindful of scammers and staying safe, and you look great doing it. I love that you have been showing so many alternates for items you’re wearing. I don’t love sling backs, but I do love those criss cross wedges you posted. Have a great day!

    1. I try to remember to show alternatives when I can. I know that everyone is different and prefers a little different style our length.
