Bling bling

I saw this little East Indian outfit at the thrift store.
And this is how I styled it. It has been to an art reception and a chamber music concert. Lots of sparkle for a small investment.

Check out Not Dead Yet style for more ideas:

I want to thank all you older fashion bloggers out there for showing me great new ways to dress. I love seeing REAL people and not just some skinny, grey-haired, ex-model... like I could relate to that!! I wish the fashion industry would get a freaking clue.

Love this sparkle, and it's a gorgeous color too. And I agree about real life bloggers, they have taught me more than a hundred magazines. Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday!

That is super cute! I love India inspired clothing. Sounds like you had a great place to wear it.

I've stopped buying magazines once I started following blogs. They're so much more "real" and visually satisfying. ;)

That is creative, I wouldn't have thought to put a skirt with that, but it looks very nice.

Gorgeous color on you!

Wow, that outfit is beautiful! The top is blingtastic! (I love me some bling.)
I totally agree about real style bloggers. Maybe we don't fit the "current fashion" but we are certainly stylish and that is way more important to me.
