Fringe For Fall And Hair Tips

When we sold our home this past May, I cleaned out my closet- big time-and I parted with some beloved pieces of clothing that I had kept through the decades of my life.
I shed some tears over these pieces as I packed them in a box and toted them off to one of our local donation centers.

My most favorite 70's leather jacket with a very furry collar, a beaded belt that I wore with hiphuggers, and a leather fringed purse, were the first items in the box.
My favorite pair of hiphuggers were maroon velvet, I know Maroon, but oh they were 
wonderful goodness oh soooo cute...
I just know in my heart that some adorable 17 year old will be wearing one of these items this season, because they are vintage.
Girls, the 70's Rock and the clothes from that era are back in style whoo hoo!

So as I have been reading my Fashion magazines and saw that fringe is in, I just knew I was going to add some pieces to my Fall style.
I enjoy sharing fashion finds on my blog and on my Looking Good Pinterest Board, 
I would love for you to follow me along on Pinterest too.
I think I may tippy toe in to this style, adding a few moderate pieces of fringe at time, but I must say that I LOVE this trend.
I will keep it simple by wearing black pants, or jeans and then adding pops of fringe.

Do you remember that some of the best music came from the 70's, oh girls the
Bee Gee's, Carly Simon,Rod Stewart...scream!
I took my oldest daughter to a Rod Stewart Concert in Dallas in the 90's, and it was 
wonderful, although did you know that he is very tiny?
He came out in a green and white suite and for a brief second I thought he looked like a Leprechaun-hehehe... but then he sang...

Depending on our age, sort of determines how much fringe we can wear, if you are
under twenty five and reading this-go for it, there are many jackets and purses dripping
in fringe and you can pull it off!
I tweeted fringe is in on my Twitter account and Bloomingdale's replied 
"Fringe makes anything fun!" 

My little words of wisdom are this for the younger set, 
enjoy your cuteness, and wear the fun stuff now!

My oldest grand girls, myself, and my daughter Samantha, from over at
Crafty Texas Girls made these Tassel necklaces, did you know they are so in style.
They are also a nifty DIY project for most ages, and relatively easy to make too.

We whipped these necklaces together one afternoon while we were nibbling on yummy
Strawberry Cake.
If you just click Crafty Texas Girls, it will take you to my daughter's tutorial.

Some of you, my dear friends, were wondering about my hair-well here it is, much shorter
and it feels so good, especially in this hot weather. 
It sort of lost it's zing in this photo-it was a hot afternoon.
I have been letting it air dry a bit and then adding some of my favorite hair products.
Letting hair dry naturally helps prevent over drying and honestly it helps me stay cool,
that blow dryer puts out so much heat.

I have enjoyed sharing some of my favorite fashion styles and hair products with you all today, I hope you have felt inspired, because that is my goal.
I just want us women folk to feel good about ourselves and embrace the journey.

Also sharing a social media event with you today for the chance to win a $500 gift card to any Aveda Salon.  Free money is always a good thing, smiles.
