Rock Black Friday!

November 24, 2022

I added some rocker edge to my casual Thanksgiving weekend look, with my band tee, studded boots, and this cool edgy denim jacket.  Now read on for tips on how to ROCK Black Friday this year!

Shop the Look:

Shopping Tips

1.You no longer need to go shopping in person to get all the deals and you don’t need to wait until “Cyber Monday” to shop.  Ninety percent of the deals are online starting on Thanksgiving Day!

2.Don’t buy it just because it’s on sale. A good price on something you don’t really want will never be a good deal.

3.Comparison shop. If you have your eye on something that will be available several places, be sure to check the price on all the sites. Sometimes it’s surprising where the  lowest price actually shows up!

4.If you really want it, GRAB it!  Things do sell out. And if it does get further reduced many places will do a price adjustment for you if you ask nicely.

The BEST of Black Friday Sales!

Fun & Fashion,

Dawn Lucy

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!


Casual Rocker Chic Outfit & Nordstrom Sale Cardigan

July 28, 2021

Well, for once I didn’t go crazy at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I decided to show miraculous restraint this year and only buy what I really wanted, which ended up being this warm and cozy Halogen cardigan!

Also recently I bought this Stevie Nicks tee on Etsy.  Are you a Stevie fan? I’ve been a huge fan since my high school days and I just loved this particular graphic of her.

Welcome to the Jungle

April 19, 2020

Does it feel a bit like a jungle out there these days?  People out “hunting” for food … and then heading right back to their caves to survive another day?


Okay, maybe I’m being dramatic, but I felt inspired to put on my camo and my jungle tee, and head out to the urban jungle for a few snaps this weekend.

After a long car drive, relaxing in the room in my plush Soma robe, was a no-brainer!
