After Christmas Sales!

December 27, 2022

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas!


We sure missed our little dog Lucky who we recently lost, and the holidays always make me sentimental missing my folks too.  But it’s also the time to celebrate all the things we’re grateful for and I’m so grateful for my loving, supportive husband, and even this sweet and bratty little husky, Rox.

Now, it’s time for the sales … SO MANY SALES!  Would you believe I had 8 pairs of jeans in my Nordstrom cart yesterday?  I did force myself to whittle that list down to 4 pairs.  The sales are just so good.  And as my friend Lynn reminded me, I have a a bit of a denim obsession.  What can I say? I’m a California girl who lives and works in jeans.  Most of the jeans I picked are Kut from the Kloth.  They have really cute jeans and most of them have a bit of stretch, so they are super comfortable too.  I also ordered a pair of black jeans from NYDJs, another brand I like a lot.  I’ll try to do a try on haul when I get them!


If you’re looking for sales, here are some of my favorites …

Nordstrom Half Yearly – extra 25% off clearance through the 29th

Moda Operandi – This is a site I can’t really afford on the regular, but this time of year, the sales are hot! If you want to treat yourself to something designer, this is the time to do it!

Macys After Christmas Sale is full of amazing deals.

Bloomingdale’s – up to 65% off and get an extra 30% off selected items until 1/2

Neiman Marcus designer sale – up to 75% off

If you do a bit of shopping and would like to share your purchases, please feel free to tag me on Instagram! It’s always fun to see what everyone else is buying!

Hope you get some relaxation in this week too!


Fun & Fashion,

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have our own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!


Happy Holidays & Sales!

December 26, 2021

Sending all my readers big holiday love! I hope you all are enjoying yourselves and celebrating in all your favorite ways.  Our favorite way is a quiet Christmas at home with the doggies and it was just perfect, including a fire, a turkey, a classic Christmas movie, board games and doggies cuddles!

Bohemian Rhapsody & All the BEST Sales!

December 26, 2018

Hope your holidays were sparkly and bright, Dolls!


I really tried to get a good family photo for the blog post today, but between two wiggly dogs and the Mr. I-Hate-Photos hubby, I couldn’t get anything usable. Sigh.  (I will send a bad photo out via my behind the scenes newsletter though … if you haven’t already, sign up. I know, I know … not like you can’t wait to see my bad pics!)

But thankfully you don’t come here for cute family photos, you come here for outfit ideas, and that I have.  Take your holiday velvet and maybe some faux fur and channel your inner glam rock star for a fun post-Xmas look.  I added a chunky silver jewelry and my pink sunglasses for an extra punch.  The raw edgy jeans and suede booties brings the look a little more down-to-earth and wearable. If it’s still a little too extra for you, just try to subtract one or two elements.  I think the jeans with the velvet and some silver chunky jewelry alone would be fabulous!
