New Style Everywhere!!

Welcome to the new over50feeling40!!  I hope all of you like the blog look as much as I do!  It was designed by the gifted and talented DEBBY STEELE!!  I love Debby's blog...one of my first reads every morning...and I knew a long time ago that when it came time for a makeover, I wanted Debby to be the creator.  I highly recommend this creative and sweet lady if you are in the market for a change.  I thought she was brilliant to come up with an antique typewriter for my blog page...loved it immediately.

Debby is so inspirational, I thought I would discuss inspiration today.  For me, it comes from a variety of places...sometimes it might be Gigi's art room, or magazines, or books.  I saw the above picture in Stacy London's new book The Truth About Style! (I know I discuss this book a lot, but it is excellent).  You can see I made my own notes on the page as to how I would put such a look together from my closet.  I eventually changed from the knit purple jacket to this silk purple jacket I own from Chico's.  


The bow blouse is new...it is a Jennifer Lopez Blouse from Kohl's and during their Valentine's Sale with coupons, I got it for $25.  I love it and know I will wear it often.  Stacy writes about the bow blouse:  "The tie front is inherently feminine...and the black and white print is subtle but visible enough to add some visual interest to the outfit based in solid colors."  I keep an inspiration folder where I put pages I tear from magazines for looks I can make from my closet.  It helps a lot on days I cannot think of ideas.

Now, please tell me what you think of my new blog style...then Katie's Favorite Things Blog Hop!! visit...then have a terrific 
joyful Valentine's Day!!

  2. I LOVE your new blog! I think it really captures the essence of you...classy, elegant, but warm and approachable.

    I get a lot of inspiration from blogs like yours and a few others I follow regularly...but my "inspiration board" is really on Pinterest, where I get lots of fashion ideas.

    My Pinterest fashion board is titled "What I'd Wear"...yes, what I'd wear if money was no object, but I've actually been able to style my own outfits with these bits of inspiration.

    Here's my board if you'd like to check it out: What I'd Wear

  20. Very nice "web outfit", Pam! As far as the other outfit goes I love pairing red with purple and I see great minds think alike. You look terrific in that shade of purple and I love the pop of animal print. You're giving me ideas...

  24. The new design is great, but I had so hoped you would stop using the GI-normous text and heads for those of us that read it on a smartphone.

    Also, though I like your jacket, the short, belted version is so much more on trend and YOUNG. Stacy's main tenet is FIT and that jacket you wear ages you, I think. Sorry to criticize, but you have great style and even so, it could be better!

  27. paaaaaaam! THIS LOOKS FANTASTIC! Absolutely clean and lean, and still very much YOU! Love the crisp white over tan edges, the pictures and the old fonts. It is a gorgeous make over, a fabulous package houses such stellar content and material. Congrats on the re-design!

    1. Thank you for your comments...I love to hear all perspectives. I have checked my I Phone 4 & 5 and the images and font show up fine. My settings are right for them...so I am not sure what you are experiencing. Also, I most often use the garments in my closet to put together an inspiration style. I agree Stacy is all about great fitting clothes and so am I, but I do like this look and I will wear it again! I do appreciate all opinions and sometimes they make me re-think a style!! Thanks for stopping by...would love to know who you are!!
