Hi Gail,
Thank you so much for the get well wishes and for stopping by my blog, it means so much.
I miss you on myspace too! I was having so many problems..everytime I wanted to leave a comment it would say I had been plished and then I had to go and change my password. I hope to get a new page up soon. Till then I'm glad we can chat here.
I just love the outfits, especially #1. I'm 45 too and I know how you feel about dressing for your did we get to be 45 so fast? lol
Your post reminds me of the show "How Do I Look" on the Style Network. I have always wanted to make over my wardrobe!
Have a great day sweetie.

Hi Gail...for me it has to be the red NO.3 but I am also so so loving No. 6!! So treeeendy!

As for the age thing...I think any of these outfits will look good on you...remember, alot of these styles we were wearing the first time round!!LOL! So I think we have every right to wear them NOW too!

Although there has to be rules! No low waisted jeans....I can't stand looking at anyones butt!! hehehe! even on the youngsters! and NO short skirts...only with leggings!....and thats it!

I am 43...and I was in a black rut for a few years there! but now I clash color just like i do with my home decoration!

I was thinking of doing a post on my colorful wardrobe soon!...that will be a laugh! you can see me coming a mile off!!! :)

Go for it aren't even Old!

Love Happy xxx

An end table in my living room. I love all my little trinkets!!!!

This is actually a birdbath with a garden angel positioned inside. I added the greenery for a halo and around the base of the angel. :)
