A yellow coat from a thrift shop

First I will try to upload photos. Oh gosh, succeeded. That was so easy that I feel very ashamed.
Anyway… here we go. Restarting this blog.

I have made over a hundred outfit photos for the Style Forum of the blog 40plusstyle.com. As the name says, it is a blog for women of 40 years and older. As I said before, I am 58 haha.
Having made so many photos and getting such a nice respons on my own blog from people all over the world, made me decide to start blogging myself regularly. I will not abandone 40plusstyle.com as I thoroughly enjoy that as well.
Let us start with my thriftshop buy: a yellow coat by Stile Beneton for 59 euros. I thought it was a steal.
The purple faux fur “scarf” was a present from my husband and is brand new (50 euros).

My husband suggested that I needed purple gloves to match. Silly man…. as if I need encouragement in this field. One hour and one thrift shop later I came home with purple leather gloves for 18,50 euros. What are the odds of that? They fit me like….. a glove.
The 7/8 black trousers have proven to be very, very useful as well. More about them in my next blog.
(Does a blog date itself? I bet it does. If not, it is now Sunday the 18th of November 2012.)

    Thank you Josep-Maria. Actually the scarf is purple, but I cannot catch that colour on my camera. Very strange.

    Hi! Are the comments moderated? I commented yesterday but it does not show here. Anyway, I said I am happy you decide to blog more frequently as I love your style- which I saw many samples of at 40+ Style, and I also thanked Josep-Maria for his Moda Madura board on pinterest which led me to so many interesting blogs of ladies over 40.

    Oh! I see that your blog improving every day. I love the cover photo and you have increased the size of the other photos. Just a suggestion, you should put some tracking system, as tracking Bloglovin or email. So his followers would know when you update the blog. Best regards.

    Hi Katty, your comment is showing and no, to my opinion I am not moderating comments. I will hire a technical man though and ask him to teach me some more of the technics behind a blog. Don’t know a thing about it. Was quite pleased with myself that I could get a photo at the top of the blog. Although it is too large to my taste.I will, certainly in the beginning, repeat a lot of photos from the 40plusstyle Forum (sorry, have to begin somewhere). Josep-Maria: yes I want a tracking system like email. I always like that with other blogs as well. I will ask my technical man. Really …. I have to take a week off to master all this.

    Hahaha, well I will leave it there for the time being, but if I keep this blog up, I will have to change it in the future as I grow older.
