Ladies in Red...Fashion Over 50,,,and the Thursday Blog Hop!

The beautiful, chic, and always classic Nancy Reagan loved to wear the color red. I enjoyed watching and learning from the recent eulogies to this amazing woman with impeccable style, and did not realize until then the huge impact she played with red becoming a staple on the runways and in the White House.
I know it is one of my favorite colors to wear and I always feel vibrant when I do.

This poncho was one of my favorites for fall/winter. But, now....

I have a lightweight, CARLISLE JACKET from Soft Surroundings for warmer weather!  The trick to this garment is "go small."  I usually purchase an XL or L, but needed to go down to a Medium for a more flattering fit!  It was summer-like this week, so I faced the heat with confidence in brilliant red!  

I am wearing it with a blown glass necklace by local artist SUSAN BUTLER.  Susan designed this piece to be worn as a layered look one piece or as three separate pieces. Find Susan's designs HERE. Also, LIKE THEM ON FACEBOOK.

If you are in San Antonio, put this date on your calendar and come see Susan's work first hand!

I am so pleased to join Mrs. Reagan as a woman in red....living to make my own statement!

How to you feel about red...do you wear it?

Don't forget there is a special this week for Laguna Naturals Vitamin C Serum!

If you are a regular reader, you know how much I love LAGUNA NATURALS VITAMIN C SERUM.  I use it every day on my face and neck.  In honor of Spring, they are bringing back their most popular special offer for this entire week (until midnight next Sunday).  Just click on the image below or HERE and go to their Amazon page.  Put two bottles in your shopping cart, then use the code feelin40 at checkout and the cost of one bottle will be removed! It is a 2 for 1 special, but you must put both in the cart...then use the code.  I think you will love as much as I do...it's affordable and works! The special is only around until midnight on Sunday!

  1. You look beautiful in both shades of red!

  2. Nancy Reagan was always so classy! One of those style icons I think. Love her red dress, don't you? It's gorgeous! I am a fan of the color red also, like you it makes me feel vibrant. It's one of those colors that when you put it on, it can change your outlook! My coloring is similar to yours and I think this is one of our good colors to be sure! : )

  3. Ronald Wilson Reagan to the President of the United States Mrs. we are sad as the Japanese people.
    Was the last message of President Reagan, the word "I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life." Gave a deep impression on many people.
    USS Ronald Reagan, CVN-76 is Yokosuka of Japan is home port.

  4. Oh how I wish I could wear Red. It just overpowers my coloring but looks fabulous on you!!

  5. Whenever I see Nancy Reagan I immediately think of red. She wore it so well. And so do you! Your new jacket looks wonderful on you and I like the swing shape. Such a beautiful way to brighten up your black ensemble.

  6. I love your fashion post, Pam. You look fab in red and are always encouraging your readers to wear what makes them feel great but also explore outside the comfort zone.

  7. I also love wearing red. In fact, I think it's time to add some new pops of red to my wardrobe. The pieces I have are getting rather old.

  8. I rarely wear red. I think women with darker hair wear it beautifully.

  9. Love that necklace! Wish I was closer so I could go to the truck show.
