Due to circumstances beyond my control, I didn’t get to take any stylish pictures for the link-up this week. I did snap a posh pic of my cat Stinky, human age = 84. I’ll have what she’s having, she is a Diva:

She’s singing here. Except for arthritis, she’s in great shape.

I hope you’ll forgive me doing a Throwback Visible Monday, from almost exactly one year ago, October 2017.

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. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!

I liked this look so much, I’m showing it twice. 😊 It’s made up of a thrifted silky top from Revolve Clothing in St. Petersburg, and an old-to-me Eileen Fisher full cotton skirt. The white petticoat, found via Amazon, is the statement piece here, all swooshy and caught by the wind.

The Cydwoq booties have been with me a long time too. I never get tired of them. And Kitty is looking up my skirts, naughty cat.

The belt is vintage and thrifted, as is the industrial strength cuff bracelet.

A midi skirt with booties is a favorite look for Florida Fall.

    • Thanks Vix! I think all my cats have been Divas, I wonder why . . . .? Thanks for sharing your great finds of the week, xox

  1. Love your adorable kitty, I used to have all kinds of cats as a child, but developed an allergy to cats for some reason. I miss them. I’m all for throwbacks, especially when they are as unique as this look. Thanks for the link up Patti!


    • Sorry about the cat allergies, Cherie. And thanks for your kind words and for linking up – I love your coat selection. xox

    • Stinky has a limited repertoire, including “Feed Me”, “Feed Me Now,” and “Pet Me For Hours.” Pugs know many more tunes : > xox
