Finances and Fashion

As a woman of a certain age I have learned to watch my finances. When I go on a trip I don’t buy the first thing that catches my attention.  While vacationing with the hubby in Hot Springs, Arkansas I ran across these scarves that I liked. In fact I saw the scarves in two different versions. Take a look at them below.   The scarf below seems a little bit more casual than some of the others that I found.

After looking at them, I found that the jewelry did not always need to be exactly the same.  As you can see with the one below, the sides are different.


This one is softer. Either one is lovely, it is what you prefer when choosing items to wear.  As women of a certain age, we don’t need things just hanging in the closet or folded in the drawer somewhere. We have so many other things to do with our money.

Above is another example of the lighter fabric scarf. I liked them all. As I stated before, I watch my finances. I have decided that my sorority sister/workout buddy and I can make these.  We are always trying to do something different.  How hard can it be?

I love the one below, and it seems really simple to make. It should be a lot of fun trying my hand at this. If making them doesn’t work out, at least I got a few friends together for a little “girl talk” which is always fun.

We all have costume jewelry and scarves just sitting there from years gone by. I have scarves that I have never worn, and I also have those that I wore the first time they were popular–you know how long ago that has been. There is jewelry that I purchased because for some reason that I can’t think of now I just had to have it. There is that necklace that my youngest purchased from Santa’s Secret Workshop in elementary school. You know items that mean a lot, but you don’t wear anymore and you can’t part with.costume jewelry 2This will become my new project. If you like the scarf idea and would rather purchase them here are the two places in Hot Springs, Arkansas that carry them. You can find both places on Facebook. They have other wonderful items also. I did purchase a Pretty Angel dress in green that I wear as a top over my white jeans. Hey I got the idea from LisaRaye.

Remember “thisisyourbestyear”, and watch your finances.

Scarves can be found at Chez Julie’ Gifts and Petals, Purses, Etc., in Hot Springs, Arkansas.  They are both on Facebook and will ship.

    Since I’m retired and am casually-dressed 99% of the time, the first scarf is my fav. Love it and the necklace. Not gaudy; perfect look. Thanks for sharing these looks! � Edwina
