03 Jan Turning Heads Linkup- New Year – Older Clothes
Happy New Year! It’s the New Year, but today, I am styling some older clothes.
New Year Older Clothes
Long, long ago, there was a LOFT burgundy floral cardigan. This cardigan was loved by its owner, so loved, that it began to pill. The lonely little cardigan remained in the sweater pile, until one day, it was no longer of use.
A few years later, the owner decided it missed the pretty floral cardigan and found an exact sweater secondhand on Poshmark. Perfect condition!
So, if you had to get rid of a garment you didn’t want to part with, look to see if it is in better shape on Ebay or Poshmark. I do have good luck!
I have been buying a few new things in the sales here and there, but mostly have been shopping second hand.
Santa brought me a few rings for Christmas, and my Mother in Law bought this Dean Davidson ring in a striking textured pattern. The criss cross ring is Monica Vinader, and I had been eyeing that for awhile.

Anyhow, I hope you all enjoyed your holiday with family, and I was so thrilled not to have to travel this year! We alternated between a bit at our house for Christmas Eve- Eve, and then over to my brothers for the rest of the Holiday. There was no shortage of excellent food, and hubby and I made Christmas Day brunch. Mmm. Lox is something I could eat every day, and the quiches were delish as well. My mom bought us a bar cart and some wonderful liquors, so I’ll be whipping up some fun mixed drinks in the New Year.
Now… back to my outfit.
I styled pieces from my closet for this look, and I was in the mood for some berry tones. Maybe it was the berries hanging from our Christmas wreath, or the garland around the door that became my inspiration.
I am wearing a newly found Loft cardigan ( Poshmark) and styled it with my Ann Taylor lace skirt. As in yesterday’s example, I have a more fitted top with a more voluminous bottom. It creates a beautiful balance. The gold brocade booties are a favorite of mine, and I wanted to mix some patterns. Both prints are of similar size with similar colors in them. The bag is a stunning deep Bordeaux.
The New Year
I’ll be posting some new year goals in a post on the blog in the near future and see how I did with ones I set last year. I always like the “clean slate feeling” of a New Year. Wishing all of you, my readers, a Blessed and Healthy New Year.
I haven’t decided yet about the linkup, so for today, it is here. Just trying to decide as it is IG is taking up more of my time with reels and such.
Have you been shopping the sales, or doing more “shopping your closet” recently?
