Some days you feel like a bright color, classic trousers, and a simple look. And some fabulous add-on hair, why not? We’re Not Dead Yet. We wear what we love, and feel good doing it.

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Please be kind and leave a link to Not Dead Yet Style in your post.

This vibrant silk blouse (similar) is by Tahari, thrifted a few months ago for under $10. I have washed it by hand and it comes out beautifully. The trousers are newly-thrifted by Talbots (sim), in a new silhouette for me: cropped (a little) and flared (a little), worn with black low heeled Naturalizer booties (sim). I like it, it feels fresh.


The amazing hair, so close to my own but thicker and better-behaved, is an Ellen Wille wig – the Wiki. It’s synthetic hair with an amazing curl pattern and it feels like the silkiest human hair. Multiple thumbs up for this wig brand, whose prices hover around $250 – but I got mine at a 30% off sale. It’s so great to have alternate hair to pop on my head when the real deal is not cooperating!


I added my new favorite Cynthia Rowley hot pink jacket.


I adore this chunky, mixed-era hand-crafted cuff. Sandy bought it for me via Citizen Rosebud’s shop.


Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.

  1. Hey,
    I really appreciate reading the post here and also it’s great that the people here are giving their opinion which is really useful for me to decide whether it is good or not. Thank you so much for this detailed info you shared. For a newbie like me , it’s totally helpful for me. I’ll surely follow everything here.
    Thank you once again!

  2. I really, really, REALLY like this outfit. All the elements just seem to come together, the cut, the colours. I had no idea that wasn’t your own hair. Excellent wig. What I love about the hair though is how it is blowing in the breeze. Beautiful, Patti. Thanks for this linkup.

  3. Sleeves….colour and a blinging cuff! Three os my favourite things on one of my favourite bloggers! Fab! xxx

  4. I actually deliberately dressed to be invisible all weekend (’twas the nature of my holiday), but I’ll come join you tomorrow, Patti!

  5. Oh my Patti, your outfit is stunning! I love that bright pink on you, especially paired with the pink jacket. And, I never would have believed that you were wearing a wig, it looks just like your normal hair, which I think is fabulous! Would love to have your hair. Thank you for hosting!


  6. Patti this a wonderful look you’ve put together here! I love these flared cropped trousers – not something I’ve tried, but you rock them! And that pink jacket is a favourite of mine made all the better by those shirt sleeves, what a great move. Thanks for the link up party again this week.
    Best wishes

    • Nie jesteÅ› szalona 😉 Jak mawia moja przyjaciółka „My jesteÅ›my po prostu spiecfeczny” :)BÄ™dzie dobrze. Mam nadziejÄ™ że brzuch szybko odpuÅ›ci. Ps moje szczęście zrobiÅ‚o format kompa i zaginÄ…Å‚ mi adres twojej strony z fotkami… 🙂

    • I was scrambling to find research information that I could grasp easily for a research project on this subject when I finally found your article. Thank you for making this information so clear and interesting.

  7. I hadn’t seen you were wearing a wig. Indeed very close to your own hair. And I love, no adore the top. So my thing, the colour, the shine, the brightness, the shape. It surprised me that it goes so well with that gorgeous jacket. But it does.
    I can understand why those flared cropped trousers feel fresh. I still have a hard time with them. Not keen yet. Probably next year, when this style is over…

  8. Wow! That wig truly looks like your own hair. Brilliant. Also it stays on in the wind!

    The colour of this blouse is so wonderfully vibrant. Such a great eclectic mix of pieces. It creates so much more interest to mix things up.


  9. First of all, you look stunning, Patti! I always love seeing you in a bright color. it really flatters your complexion. Love the cropped pants (my personal favorite!) and the booties work perfectly. As for the wig – never in a million years would I have guessed that was a wig! Looks so real!


  10. This is a stunning outfit! I love all the detail, from the colors, to the sleeves on the blouse to the cuff! Wow, just perfection! I am always so excited to find amazing items while thrifting, its just so fun! Peace! Cheryl

    • >Even Death has pr8Melms&#o230;baybe it all got to be too much for him…*and I also wondered why his rib-cage was so flat…I was envisioning some big ol’ tire tracks going over him, with a caption hinting about how dangerous it is in this part of town?*

  11. I never would have guessed you were wearing a wig! It’s a nice length too. Did I read somewhere that you were originally from Michigan? Are you a snowbird now? Have a great week!


    • Hi Julia – no I’ve lived in Florida for 30 years, and the Northeast before that! Thaks for your kind words, xo

  12. Looking so very good in yo.ur bright top with or without your jacket, the colour suits you perfectly. Glad you enjoy the wig. Many thanks for hosting Visible Monday

  13. That’s a gorgeous blouse Patti -you have some amazing thrift finds! I love the way the stone in the bracelet echoes the colour.

  14. You look great in that color. I love Tahari.
    The hair is great, too. My mom had a wig back in the ’70s, for bad hair days. SIL had one post-chemo. That motivated daughter to grow out her hair then lop it off to donate to a group sponsored by Pantene that gives real-hair wigs to cancer patients.

  15. A stunning outfit, and the bracelet is gorgeous.The jacket is meant for this top and pants. And a wig! I would never have known, I thought it was your own hair. wow! xx

  16. Amazing colors Patti!!! So, you are proof it IS possible to age in reverse..that skin, that hair, that shine!!!

  17. First that blouse is just amazing—I adore the colors!
    Second, I would have never guessed it’s a wig! I have 2 wigs, that I just love. I haven’t been wearing them much lately, but to me they are the bestest ever—I never have a bad hair day with them.
