 Jeans – Goodwill
 Hobo backpack – Vintage Coach via Goodwill
 Suede Fringe Wedge Heel Boots – Minnetonka
Hey folks it been a while, but decided to try and post some outfit today!

I been going to Goodwill a lot, especially their outlet.  Their outlets priced the merchandise by the weight and not per item.  I usually get a nice size bag of clothes for under $20.  I’m wearing a few items from the Goodwill in this post.  The vintage Coach backpack I got at a local Goodwill store a year or so ago for $19.99.  Soon as I saw it I knew it had my name on it.  I love this new kimono I purchase from Ross, its the perfect length for most of my outfits.

Paint Stained Jeans


I also told one my girlfriend at work about it who has a similar style and she managed to get herself a pair as well!  These jeans are awesome and they make this outfit pop along with this extra cute animal print bag I scored at the Goodwill for $3!  


 Peplum Top – Forever 21
 Paint Stained Jeans – Traffic Jean Wear
 Obi Belt – The Limited
 Black Fringe Booties – Adriana
 Furry Animal Print Bag – Goodwill
I so love looking for retro looking 80’s outfits. I grew up in the 80’s so it super fun to go back that era in terms of style. I wish I had kept some of the clothes I use to wear back in the day, I had some awesome pieces, but I did too much moving around and lost of lot of great stuff.


Now let me get into the outfit.  I was super hyped to find these paint stained jeans on clearance for $14 at a junior store.  Love, love, love it.  Reminds me a pair I had back in the 80’s.  I immediately thought retro throwback.  I had to have them.

Fringe Kimono with OTK Lace-Up Boots


Maybe cause I felt like my shoe collection was getting kind of boring and I needed to spice things up with a new crop of trendy kicks. I’m so loving all these new fringe heels so I’ll be posting quite a few in the next few weeks!   Have a great evening guys!  



 Lace Top – Apt 9
 Denim Skirt – Goodwill
 Floral Kimono – Belk
 Black OTK Boots – Qupid
 Black Canvas Bag – Tory Burch

 

I’ll be out and about this week hanging with my girlfriends doing happy hour, jazz shows and checking out a few restaurants.  I’ll also be out and about with the love of my life as well.  I may post pictures from the event for my next blog post, I’ll see as that’s really not my thing. When I’m out enjoying myself the last thing I’m really interested in doing is breaking out my phone and taking a bunch of selfies with folks.  Like I’m not from that generation.  Anyway I digress.


Two of my good friends took me out for lunch and so I rocked it out real casual with a short denim skirt and this great Kimono I brought at Belk on sale (of course).  I’m also loving my new boots I got a few weeks ago.  I don’t know, but I have really been feeling a lot of trendy shoes lately.

Cheap vs Cheaper – I chose the Cheaper!

Okay, if you waited for the Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals to purchase some shoes you were just salivating over for weeks, you made a smart move. Actually the shoes I have been dying to get is these cobalt blue triple fringe heels by Steve Madden. Macy’s had the Steve Madden ‘Fringly’ on sale for $45 yesterday for cyber Monday and Kohl’s had their version for $29 with free shipping.


I thought long and hard and since my feet are semi-narrow I felt like the real suede would end up being a problem down the road. At some point the shoes would get stretched out from taking them off and on and the pressure from walking….so eventually they would fit too loose for my narrow feet. However, the faux suede would pretty much keep it shape. Both shoes have the same heel height and the version by Candies looks pretty darn good (I have seen other copies that were not as well constructed). Though I prefer the look of real suede I don’t like the fact that it would easily stain and stretch.  The Kohl’s version had my dollars for durability, the non-stretch factor, low maintenance non-staining material and even better price; though (price was not the deciding factor as I thought $45 was a deal) it was all the other reasons.

Advice for Wearing Heels for Women Over Forty

Now that I’m officially into my fifties, I’m finding I have a low tolerate for uncomfortable shoe or hard to wear shoes and I can no longer subscribe to ‘pain for fashion’s sake. Nah, when my feet start talking to me it could be a early wrap for the evening and my feet have been ‘talking to me’ alot lately. There are even shoes I look at on-line and can just feel the pain I would subjecting myself too if I bought them. I’ve invested in a lot of high heels in my forties (not quite sure what I was thinking about) and though I’m good about moving older styles out of my shoe collection via Ebay, I’m not totally ready to walk away from my 5 inch and up stiletto. I have however decided I could find a happy medium, a compromise. These are some of the things I decided to do in order to still get some use of my over 4 inch heels.

I purchased more heels in a lower heel height (3 inches). The style that are super cute and even trendy are also made in heights lower than 4 inches. I found an amazing pair of on-trend heels from Jessica Simpson in a 3 inch heel. On the days that I want to have a little height but not subject myself to 4 or 5 inch heel, I opt for the lower heels to give my feet a break. You can also find super cute, trendy and classic heels at thrift stores like the Goodwill, Value Village and Clothes Mentor for under $10 dollars. I realized I didn’t have a lot of heels at 4 inches and under so I started buying them at thrift stores on the cheap and now I have a fairly decent collection.

I wear a low wedge heel or comfortable cute flats (with inner foot support) 4 days at week at work now. If I’m going out after work, I change into the heels appropriate for what I plan on doing (movies, bar, restaurant, lot of walking, etc). Giving my feet a break during the work day is a good thing. If at anytime during the day I need to switch it up, I plan ahead and throw a pair of heels in my handbag. The point is I’m not in heels all day long bringing pain and anguish to my feet and creating varicose veins.

Since my feet have been pretty comfortable and supported throughout the work week, I can wear a nice 3 or 4 inch heel on Friday and be super sassy.

Invest in good shoe insoles. I can’t stress this enough. It’s worth it to purchase good insole to protect your feet. They make insole for open toe sandals, boots and all variation of shoes. They have various types of insole for different kinds of support (arch, ball of feet, heel, etc). You can swap the good ones out and put them in different shoes instead of buying a pair for every shoe.
heel_article3
I massage my feet, stretch my leg muscles and soak my feet in Epsom Salt at the end of the work week. Epsom salt is great old remedy and it works for combating any kind of inflammation and swelling. It really is a nice relief for my feet and help to keep them in better good shape. I also get pedicures every two weeks and invest in the extra foot massage when my wallet allows for it. heel_article4
Pick the right heel height for your activity or event. Select the right heel height for what you have planned for the day. If it’s dinner and the movies and you are in car, just walking from the your vehicle to the restaurant and theatre with very little standing or walking, then you can probably rock those 5 inch heels. If you’re at a concert where you’re standing for the entire show or you’re at a festival doing a great deal of walking, you might want to wear a good sturdy platform heel, wedge heel or opt for a 3 inch heel for comfort and support. Basically wear the shoes that best fit the activity or event and won’t cause you to be dealing with sore feets when you get home. heel_article4
Do Yoga for your feet. My job has a wellness program and fitness center in the building and I’m now taking yoga classes. I think taking yoga overall for the entire body is very important to keep your joints and ligament flexible, limber and to keep that blood circulating going, especially for individual over forty. Their are specific routine and poses to strengthen your legs and feet muscles. There are several videos on youtube that can get you started. heel_article5
Supplements can help. I have found that taking collagen and MSM has helped me greatly with any joint or muscle discomfort, also Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth has worked incredibly well in helping relieve inflammation and pain in my ankle that I had for months before taking a tablespoon of DE every day. Supplement can and do work but with anything, please consider any other supplements or medication you may be taking prior to introducing something new into your regime, as some medications and herbs will conflict with each other.
You can still rock those 4 or 5 inch heels ladies but as you get older you probably can’t wear those puppies all day. You have to be selective about when and how to wear them; making sure to give your feet the support or break it needs during the day so you can rock the glam heels for date night or a special event that evening. I hope some of things I’ve done will or can help you to balance out your shoe collection and get a sensible rotating going so that you are not putting undue stress on your feet ladies.

Floral One Shoulder Top



Rocking some Adriana peep toe fringe booties that are super comfortable!  Enjoy your evening folks!  :-) 

whatiwore447_pic
On my way to a lovely Sunday dinner.  My, my, my what to wear?  Then I remember this great one shoulder blouse I got at Value Village and my shocking blue ponte knit pencil skirt I got at the Limited a few years back.  Aww yes, this could work.  I think it turned out okay for a last minute pull together. Oh before I forget, I got the faux suede booties at Charlotte Russe on sale. They are super, super comfortable! I added a pair of Dr. Scholls insoles to make them more wearable throughout the day.  I like this brand because they usually keep the heel height under 4.5 inches, I added tassels to the end of the shoe laces just to give them more a polished, edgy look.
I’ve noticed lately if I have a pair of shoes that are not exactly comfortable, I tend to wear them a lot less now because my feet just can’t take the abuse anymore. I’m getting older so comfort is important. I’ll get more into that in my next post.
