Not Your Usual Fashion Show and a Winner. . .

Many of you have heard me mention shopping at NPS, or what we like to call, “The Train Wreck Store”.  Dubbed that because not unlike a train wreck, you never know what you are going to happen upon.

If you’re willing to take your time and dig a little, bargains are to be found.

The other morning as I was cleaning the shower I had an epiphany. “I should do a Train Wreck Friday Fashion Show”!

Now this will not be like your usual fashion show.  No skinny models, (well, once in a while maybe), but hey, us chubby girls like to look cute too!

And definitely no modeling or fashion training.  Just a little of, “This is kind of cute”.

Prepare yourself for comedy central.

The last few days it has been raining here in Utah.  One needs a little something stylish to step out into the wet world.

Here’s my opening debut outfit.

It’s 7:00 in the morning, so don’t look too close. Had to have hubby snap pic before leaving for work.  No double clicking on photo. lol!

It’s ALL about the boots!  How cute are they?  The vintage red rake is pretty sweet also.  No I did not find it at train wreck. Although, they sometimes have vintage items.

The black and grey sweater dress was $17 and the boots were $20.

Had to buy the plaid boots  because I loved them.  Question is, “will I dare wear them?” Wouldn’t want to be one of those 50 something year olds trying to look like a 30 year old.  They may become a cute decoration. On a side note, you sure can see my bad swollen knee.

Then I remembered that I had this hat from train wreck.

I’ve only dared wear it once. lol!

And look at this dog gone cute raincoat find for my 6 year old granddaughter, Paityn.

Enough of the fashion, let’s move on to the announcement.  The winner of my give away is: Rose  (Chubskulit) from:http://www.obstaclesandglories.com/.  Rose is a new follower, so I don’t know her well.

She lives in North Korea. I know that she has a young daughter she calls, Ms. Burrito.  I think she likes pink.

Just found out that Rose lived in Korea two years ago and now lives in West Virginia.

Congratulations Rose!

Have a Happy Fashion Friday!

I like this new idea of yours, and I LOVE your outfit! I think you should definitely wear those boots. If I saw you walking on the street in this outfit, I would think that you have great style!

Girl, you look AWESOME!!!! I love the outfit, the boots and the hat! don't get me going about NOT wearing because of your age. So you look like your 30ish instead of 50! What? You want to dress your 'age'..I don't think so! Dress in a way that accentuates your beautiful qualities. And girl, that outfit rocks!

I tell ya Jan, if you could see how my mother dresses sometimes! now she is 68...Someone said to me the other day..'oh I saw your sister'..WHAT..that's my mother! lol

I ♥ fashion and I think you look adorable! I say dress like you want because no matter what we wear, people will be critical! Who cares! And what is a 50 year old "supposed" to wear anyway? :)

I love the boots!

And while I'm "only" 41, I'd def wear them, and wouldn't think twice seeing them on someone older than me either.

Cute look!

Blessings, Joanne

I think red and black plaid boots are classic and modern at the same time! I would wear them with pride!
