ONE YEAR LATER !

AH ! BEING DRESSED IS A GOOD THING :)  ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S A FLAX JUMPER !
THANKS FOR YOUR GOOD WISHES YESTERDAY :)


WELL, TOMORROW IS MY ONE YEAR "BLOG-OVERSARY" .
 MY FIRST POST ( ACCORDING TO BLOGGER ) WAS NOVEMBER 13TH ( A FRIDAY THE 13TH! ). THE TITLE WAS CALLED "WELCOME TO MY WORLD", FOLLOWED QUICKLY BY " BREAKING THE GLASS LENS " ;)  ~ A GRIPE POST ABOUT AGEISM....  AND WOW A LOT OF MY OLD IMAGES ARE BROKEN LINKS NOW :) OOPS!


SINCE THEN, I HAVE LEARNED SO MUCH, MADE SOME OF THE GREATEST FRIENDS, AND HAD A GREAT TIME CREATING SOMETHING I AM PROUD OF. ~ NOT TO FORGET HONING MY PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS IN THE PROCESS :)  ~ AT LEAST I THINK SO ;)
I BELIEVE MY STYLE SENSE HAD EXPANDED,  AND I'VE BEEN OPENED UP TO SO MANY MORE POSSIBILITIES. I ACTUALLY LIKE TO SHOP MY CLOSET NOW !


THANKS EVERYONE FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT !
MY PLAN WAS TO START A "BLACK FRIDAY" POST, WHICH THIS OUTFIT KINDA COUNTS AS I AM WEARING BLACK TIGHTS AND VEST :)
ON FRIDAY'S,  TIL CHRISTMAS,  I WILL BE POSTING DIFFERENT WAYS TO ROCK ALL THE BLACK CLOTHING IN MY CLOSET.
WISH ME LUCK ;)
( OH YEAH, AND A BLACK BELT AND BOOTS ;)

I HAVE A SURPRISE INTERVIEW SET FOR SATURDAY, SO WE CAN ALL CELEBRATE TOGETHER!

MY OUTFIT:
FLAX Jumper: thrifted, years ago
Vest: K-mart, 3 bucks ~ Thin turtle-neck: Dot's, clx  ~ Boots; thrifted, Goodwill  
Scarf: Dollar General Store ( i know! )  ~  Sunnies: Vintage Liz Claiborne  
Earrings: Claire's $1.oo  
AND Check out this make-up base!  I got a sample of Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse. It rocks!
I normally don't show my wrinkles, but this stuff really made my skin smoother and didn't "sink" in ;)
I'm actually impressed ! ( Nope they didn't pay me a nickle to plug it ;)
JUMPING INTO THE WAY-BACK MACHINE !
HAVE A TERRIFIC, CREATIVE WEEKEND EVERYBODY :)
SEE YA TOMORROW FOR ,TA-DA, THE VINTAGE VIXEN !

Happy Blogiversary. I'll look forward to the Black Friday series and I'm going to go dig up the post on Ageism!

Ahhhhh Flax! I personally have never found anything by them that I'm not swimming in, but it's a staple in my town. There's even a giant discount warehouse style sale annually.

Happy Blog-o-versary! Thanks for the widget, it's soooooo super cool. I'm looking forward to Black Friday posts, maybe I'll join in after turkey day. I refuse to acknowledge the season until then.

Despite what everyone says I find black an extremely tough colour to pull off, I look forward to learning from you!
Gorgeous mix of monochrome and I LOVE those sunglasses. xxx

Congrats on your anniversay! it's a lot of work and commitment.

i love this outfit, especially for the way it shows how you can create an individual look out of some pretty basic pieces. nothing 'way out' on it's own, no crazy colors or patterns - it's all in the choices, and the way you put it together - i think they call that 'style', baby
; ) looking forward to 'black fridays', too. steph

Well, Job Well Done! Happy one year of blogging. That really is a milestone.
Loving the colors and layers of your outfit. Maybelline mousse, that's good stuff. As for ageism, what?!? You mean people treat us differently because we're in our forties and awesome! Is that what you're talking about?

Great outfit! Urban safari chic.

Happy Bloggervesary. I wonder if you'd share what you've learned in this one year, and how blogging changed your way or dress, or did it? xo.
