60’s Mod Flower Power & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

July 23, 2015
wearing a mod vintage top over forty
Hi Dolls!  Did you notice my new blog look?  I decided to go for something more simple and chic! What do you think? Still making a few tweaks here and there. 

Now on to the fashion talk of the day …
I love that mod 60’s look, do you?  But a lot of it isn’t too flattering to my body shape.  I mean, hello, my thighs haven’t been mini skirt friendly for a decade and sheath dresses are hard for pear shapes to pull off.  So whenever I see a cool vintage 60’s looking top that will work on me, I go crazy for it.  

A bold yellow, orange and green flower?  Polyester sleeveless with a zipper in back?  60s perfection! I have it hanging right next to this in my closet!

Summer Uniform & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

July 16, 2015
Do you have a summer uniform? I have several favorite combos, but one of my “go to” summer looks is a maxi, tank or tee, sandals, and a denim jacket or cardigan.  

maxi, denim jacket

Always nice to have a jacket or cardi for cool mornings and overly air conditioned buildings.

Rocksbox – July Review

July 12, 2015

Whenever I get my Rocksbox in the mail, I get so excited that I tear into the envelope, forgetting that I can reuse it to send my jewelry back when I’m ready to trade. Gosh … well, at least I’m enthusiastic!

If you’re new to the concept, Rocksbox is a monthly jewelry subscription.  Yeah, I wasn’t sure at first either, but it’s really quite fun and a great deal too!  For $19 a month, you get to borrow 3 pieces at a time and trade in for 3 more as often as you want. And the jewelry is only the most on point high quality designer fashion jewelry!

If you missed it, you can read my first review here.

Wait until you see the pretties I received this time around …

My delightful trio included pieces from Trina Turk, Gorjana, and House of Harlow!

Your jewelry set comes wrapped like a special present with a personal note.  Your stylist lets you know all the information on the pieces that you’re borrowing. If you want to keep something, you get a special insider price.  Here’s the details on my latest grouping …

Here’s a close up of the gorgeous House of Harlow necklace …

How does my stylist know my taste so well?  I filled out a questionnaire and also put things on my wish list. So far, I’ve absolutely loved everything I’ve borrowed. 

Here’s the delicate bracelet from Gorjana …

And I think the Trina Turk earrings are my very favorite.  They’re so modern and luxe.

Best of all, you can try a month absolutely free (no strings attached). Just use the code “fashionshouldbefunxoxo” to get your free month of Rocksbox fun!

Ironically Tacky & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up Party!

July 9, 2015

Have you ever fallen in love with something against your better judgement? I mean, you know it’s straining the bounds of good taste well beyond the breaking point, but for some reason you love it anyway?

That’s how I feel about this crazy graphic tee that I found shopping with my husband last weekend.  The shirt says things like “strike a pose” and “fashion blogger” and “red high heels” …. my inner 9 year old was squealing with delight!  Hubby was just shaking his head.

I read somewhere that hipsters wear normcore clothes ironically. Can I wear this tee ironically? How does one go about wearing something ironically?  Is it all in the facial expression?  Like this …

Or this ….
