Go Camo Chic Hey, ladies!  Until just recently, I would have said, “Me in camo, what do you think I am, a redneck?” LOL!  Right?  Well, true and false…. it all depends on what type of camo print you pick, the style of the garment and the color pattern of the camo.  This is way out of the box for me, but I like it when it is done in a feminine chic manner.  When styled properly, it really doesn’t scream “camo”, but presents itself as just another printed pattern palette.  Let’s have some fun with camo! Don’t miss Day #2 of How to Wear Camo Chic Over 50 HERE Gray is not my best color, but with darker and lighter tones mixed into this pattern, it works as a fashionable and flattering print.  If you do not like yourself in a particular color,  just add in an accessory jewelry piece,…

Vest Yourself with the Third Piece (Don’t miss Day #1 of this post HERE – with full DIY instructions for the upcycled jeans) Today’s post is Day #2 of “How to Upcycle Old Jeans with Beaded Fringe” where I show the completed jeans project with two different vests as the third piece to dress up the outfit for day or evening.  If you missed that fun and easy project, you can find the Day #1 post HERE.  The Day #1 post also gives full details and provides links for all of the jewelry and accessories I am also wearing in this second post. A vest is a great option as a third piece for a dressy-casual look.  Plus, when it is not quite cold enough for a big heavy coat, a vest keeps the chill off without feeling smothering. I found my brand of vest on Amazon, but it is updated…

Upcycle Old Jeans ( Don’t miss Day #2 of this post HERE) Out with the old, in with the new, right?  Well, sometimes but not always — old jeans are the perfect upcycle project!  The styles of jeans change every couple of years, if not every year, but that doesn’t mean you have to give them the heave ho.  I have had these “Sweetheart” style Old Navy jeans for several years, they do not even make them anymore.  This style is a tad low on the waist and the leg width is looser than what I wear now, but it was hard for me to give them away when I saw a pair of beaded cropped jeans for a hefty price at one of our local retail stores.  You can really tell this pair of jeans has been worn a lot because they look like my knees are still in…
