If I were shopping.....

I have not had a fun shopping experience in about a month, so I do miss it just a bit!

So, if I were going shopping, here are a few garments from new collections, I might just want to try on....

Chico's Zig Zag Stripe Duster
Mosaic Cardigan
Soft Surroundings B Call Tunic
Foxcroft Paisley Tunic - Yes,
Paisley is back!!!
Ann Taylor Geo Fleck Wrap Dress
These would be fun to get in front of a mirror!  Does anyone else have a new collection garment you would like to try on??

This has been a great week for over50feeling40....the most reads ever and a feature on the Huffington Post!  I am truly humbled and so glad to have each and every new reader.  
My son is also currently on the cover of Taga Sports Magazine, a quarterly publication in Saipan!!  He played quarterback this season for their semi-pro team, the Saipan Sharks!


Have a wonderful weekend ahead!!

  1. Congratulations, Pam! You deserve each and every accolade. And congratulations also to your son! Very impressive.

    I ordered some coated denim skinny jeans that look sort of like leather pants. Tight leather pants. Eek! I am supposed to receive them tomorrow...fingers crossed that they work out for me. I really want a pair.

    Other than that, I am on the hunt for practical things like rain booties, parkas, and walking shoes as we are taking my stepdaughter to Paris in a couple of months. We want to stay as dry and comfortable as possible!

    Very excited for you, Pam. I have a feeling this is really your year!
    xoxo, A

  3. Congratulations on your accolades, all well and truly deserved! To try on, I would love something from Carla Zampatti - would spend all my time just rubbing my fingers and eyes over her fabric and designs. Dreams...

  10. I'd like to have that Chico's duster - in paisley! And I'd like that dressing room, too.

    You're a superstar, Pam!

  11. Good Morning Pam, Congratulations and how proud you must be of your son.
    I love the cross over dress and the tunic....it is beautiful. I am a Windsmoor Women....I love their clothes, for me they are just perfect. They are sold in the House of Fraser. Pop over and take a look, I think you will like the styles.
    Have a lovely day.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne

  12. How exciting for both you and your son getting some press love! I am going on a shopping ban for 2013 I think. I hope to write about it soon. I think I am just done with a lot of things and shopping should be right there at the top of the list. I want to save money, maybe buy one fabulous thing in 2 or 3 years, and shop my own closet! That being said I do love that striped duster. Oh the temptations of the world! Have a great weekend. XO, Jill

  13. I would definitely try on the Chico's duster and the Soft Surroundings tunic. Sadly, the only clothing I plan to shop for in the near future is new bras! I hate bra shopping but sometimes a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do.

  15. Congratulations! Quite the honor for both you and your son. What a great way to start the new year :) Although spring fever has already set in, my only new purchase has been a new winter coat, but that black and white Ann Taylor dress certainly has me dreaming of a shopping spree.

  16. Love your blog! Best of luck to you and your son. Chico's is the best, their pants are the only ones that fit me. When they have a sale plus $ or % off, their clothes are so inexpensive.

  17. For me, the dressing room is an exercise in torture. Just yesterday, I took an ENORMOUS pile of clothing into the dressing room at Fashion Bug. The whole chain is being closed, so everything is 70-80% off. Only half a bag's worth of clothing even remotely fit :(

    I did scoop up a few goodies, though!
