A LITTLE HOLIDAY INN MY CLOSET....new feature






Coach necklace from retail store, gift from my husband at Christmas 3 years ago. 


thrifted velour maxi skirt, sequined cardi, ribbon belt, and faux fur, vintage hat. 


Lipstick by Avon Berry Berry Nice...

Linking this up to Tammy's blog, Silverstyle for this weeks Trending through the decades link up.  Tammy is showing off her bling...check it out and link up next time...www.silverstyle50.blogspot.com
Good Morning, I am up way too early today but my husband woke me up as I was in a deep, dreamy sleep.  "Dawn, Dawn, Dawn, did you leave Blacky out in the garage last night?  Uh, I guess so.  Ooops.  Rob reminded me that it was 30 degrees.  My bad.  Poor thing...he came in ravenous and cold.  He is a big cat with a thick coat and he was in the garage not outside like my stray, Harvey.   These are the things I had to tell myself to feel better about leaving my big fat Blackers in the garage.  
Anyway, yesterday revealed its first signs of Winter with the trees having lost a ton of leaves and that snap in the air which inspired me to do a post that relates to the upcoming holidays.  I thought, what woud I wear to a party if I were suddenly invited?    Do I even have holiday clothing that sparkles?  Turns out, I had more than a  few things that I have not worn that were just screaming "don't go to the thrift store until you wear me".   So I came up with a new feature for this blog through the holidays called "HOLIDAY INN MY CLOSET".   You may have something sparkly lurking in your closet too....go ahead, take a peek...I dare you.  Have a great day and thanks so much for watching my hair tutorial. I know it was way too long.  Dawn xoxo

My poor husband wouldn't know a coach store if it bit him in the butt....

Love the hat and sparkles, who says you have to save it for parties?! I definitely wear my sparkly accessories on a regular basis, but am now thinking about getting out the posh dresses for everyday... it's all in the styling!

The secret to beautiful skin is to stay out of the sun, and wear good makeup. Even when I was a poor college student, walking to work and taking the bus to school, I counted pennies and change to buy lancome makeup. Young girls never think that someday they will be 40 or 50 or 60, and what their skin will look like. There are things we can change as we get older, we can lose weight, tone up, increase our IQ, work on our personality. But, you can't change your skin tone or texture, EVER. Dawn you are living proof that skin is ageless if you take care of it from the beginning. Estee Lauder said, and I paraphrase. Nature give you the skin you have at 20, what you do after that determines the skin you will have at 50! Touche,
