Happy Presidents Day!!!

Hello Blogland!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday!!! I know I am because I am off work!!

I’m baking poundcakes for the outreach, doing some alterations and starting to pack up the winter decor. I kinda decorate for each season/holiday and it’s time to put away the snowmen and wintery things and bring out the SPRING stuff!!! We really didn’t have a winter here in Maryland so I am ready for Spring to come!!

Do you find certain brands/lines are a guarantee to fit and look good on you?? I’m finding in my thrifting travels that Jones New York, St. John’s Bay, CJBanks and a few others always fit well and are of good quality. These weren’t brands I typically brought in the past. My horizons are certainly being opened!  What brands work for you??

Yesterday’s outfit for church was 100% thrifted-even my purse. I don’t count underclothes or shoes (I wear a 9 wide which makes thrifting shoes very difficult) in my percentages.  I had loads of compliments and my friends were shocked to hear the outfit, including the purse, was only $16!!!!

Sundays Outfit- Sweater is Ann Taylor Loft, Top is St. Johns Bay, Pants are Lane Bryant

I am linking up the adorable Patti for Visible Monday and Monday Mingle today!!

Did anyone else LOVE last nights Downton Abbey??? I can’t WAIT for series 3 in the fall!!!




  1. Wow, great outfit, Tamera – I can’t believe the grand total was $16!! And the belt and jewelry really add sparkle. Thanks so much for linking up to Visible Monday.

    These colors look so pretty on you, Tamera. Love the top and cardi and those cute little flats.

  3. The colors are beautiful on you. I admire everyone who can put together an outfit for such a reasonable price and yet look like it is very expednsive. Great Visible Monday look.

  4. Those colors were an excellent choice for you! I find I like those brands you mentioned as well. I used to think of them as old ladyish, but styled right they can be really cute. Liz Claiborne is another fave of mine.

    Love the pink purse. You look so cute And I am enjoying Downton Abbey and wonder how Shirley MacClain is going to fit into it.

  6. Such a cute outfit – you look lovely in pink.

    I like I.N.C., Club Monaco, Esprit, Nygaard, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Jacob, Smoking Lily (local), Planet, but mostly, I look for quality.

Thanks for visiting!! I love to hear what you're thinking!! I read all of your posts and will try to answer them!
