Fashion Over 50: Color and Cascarones!

Just in case you may not know, a cascarone is a colored egg, filled with confetti, and closed at the broken end with colored tissue paper.  Then you take them and go smash them on the tops of your favorite heads...this is why so many walk around Fiesta with confetti in their hair.  You just never know when you will end up with a smashed cascarone on top!


Speaking of tops, I like to wear this one during Fiesta because the print reminds me of confetti.





I purchased it a few years ago at Stein Mart to wear to a Fiesta barbecue.  Colorful prints are everywhere during Fiesta...













I love to pop it with this Italian leather bright orange handbag...also a purchase for years back at Marshalls.














There are some beautiful spring pieces on sale right now...top retailers...excellent prices for the quality...just scroll through here...




I actually am very calm with my color and prints during Fiesta when compared to many. Wearing confetti in my hair is about the craziest I get!   Take a look at some of these fashions:



Remember...this week is all about Fiesta Style...just like we see in these coasters.  San Antonio does Fiesta from the runways to our homes!


Viva Fiesta!

  1. Oh I love love love all of these colors. And I especially covet that orange purse you got so long ago :-) I spend every day of the three-day Easter weekend here in Austin with the little bits of confetti in bedded in my hair. My child discovered her love of them about eight years ago and it's a lot of which has not lessened overtime :-)

    1. I know...once a child or grandchild discovers them, we live in confetti! This purse was one of those special surprises from Marshalls I have always been so happy to have! Thanks Carla!

    1. It's actually pretty normal to see people in town for the next two weeks walking around with confetti in their hair! No one here thinks anything about it. Kids love cascarones!
