Oldies But Goodies

Mother nature continues to taunt us with a warm spring day followed by a very cool cloudy day. I am so grateful for the beautiful spring coat sent to me by Dalitika.

I wore the coat to dinner over a purple long sleeve tee from Chico's and black pants from Ross. The multiple metal colors abstract necklace is one that I found in a gallery in Asheville last year. The sandals and the small box bag are from T.J.Maxx.

I hope to convey several messages with this blog. One of which is you don't have to have a lot of money to look nice. I constantly shop in stores such as T.J.Maxx, Ross and on the site Dalitka.

Dalit Fresco is the brilliant mind behind her web site and a product line which includes great thrift finds. I think of her as a personal shopper! She has a well trained eye for finding quality pieces that work well for us women of a certain vintage. I truly love all of the pieces I have gotten from her. When they arrive in their neat tiny packages to save on shipping and packing waste, I take them to the dry cleaner and they are like new afterward.

Here are some of my other great items from Dalitka.

I love this light weight navy blazer and wear it often.

I get so many compliments on this handpainted handmade silk kimono each time I wear it. 

Mr. Mickey loves vintage too! His favorite car will be twenty years old very soon. If you take care of your treasures and choose classic styles they will serve you well for many years whether it be a car or lovely classic style of spring coat.

Thank you for joining me on this fun journey through midlife and beyond.
