Gypsy & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

February 25, 2016

I love a gypsy vibe … 

wearing trends over forty, how to do boho over forty, upscale boho

layering necklaces, embroidery trend, flares over forty

I found this wild embroidered vest at a thrift store when I was shopping for this post.  But this time around I decided to style it as a top with a fringe cardigan over it.

crochet cardigan, flares, wedges, California style
I had fun layering some statement necklaces too.  The garnet one I’ve had forever …  20 years easily.  The other cool necklace is from Salt.


fashion over forty, having fun with fashion over forty, trendy over 40

A few favs from last week’s party ….

Jordan of Lil Miss JB Style …. looking sleek and chic.

Kristen of Basically Blonde … loving her bold monochromatic look.
Crissy of Some Velvet Morning … rocking this on point dark floral.

As always, so looking forward to checking out all your looks this week! Party on, you fashionable dolls!

Oh, and have you entered this giveaway?!  TWO winners announced Monday!

    As a massive fan of boho style I LOVE this look! And what a find on that vest! Thrifting is the best.

    It is too funny what you wrote about the online blab session since I inferred they were throwing shade at me with my love of fringe.


    • Reply dawnlucy February 26, 2016 at 8:21 pm

      HAHA …we're too much alike! 😉 Adore you & your style, Suzanne!

    Dearest Dawn – please forgive me for not linking up today; we've unfortunately had some "fur-baby" drama over the past 48 hours that has really knocked the stuffing out of me. My blog post today is not an outfit post…but hopefully everything will be back on track around here in the next couple of days. P.S. This embroidered and beaded vest is BEYOND stunning…you really have a little sartorial goldmine in that neighbourhood thrift store of yours!! I'm sooo envious!! XOXO

    • Reply dawnlucy February 26, 2016 at 9:27 pm

      I really have been lucky at the thrift stores around here! Wish you could come shop here with me! Give Fritz a kiss from Auntie Dawn Lucy.
