Traditional style advice to make your outfits more interesting is: add texture and/or shine. So today I am experimenting with a little of each, to liven up my classic black trousers. It’s a gorgeous Florida Fall today so I want to shine with a dressy/casual mix.

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 nifty brocade jacket (similar) was thrifted in Greenwich Village for about $25. It’s by Albert Nipon, really well tailored and I love the cropped length. The knit top by CAbi (sim) is also thrifted, and the great AllSaints trousers were picked up last year in NYC. The silk art scarf (sim) is an old friend, and the boots are new and retail! (what!) by Børn. They are the darkest burgundy, not black. Love the look, and they did our seven miles a day walking in New York without a blister.



The sweater has some glitter trim too. And I love this old silk scarf – it depicts Venus rising.


The buttons are like jewelry! Great way to sparkle up some of your existing jackets: add jeweled (vintage?) buttons.

Ready for any adventure today brings, although if tradition holds that means wine and tempting snacks at Coasters Pub, watching NFL and screaming cheering for my teams.


Now, let’s see what you’ve been wearing, Visible Women.

The guidelines to participate in the Visible Monday Link-Up are so simple:

    1. Whoever wants to can join in! Just compose a post that includes any outfit, accessory, piece of jewelry, hairstyle, cosmetic or other adornment that makes you feel more confident, alive and visible that day.
    2. Include a link to Not Dead Yet Style somewhere in your post.
    3. Go to the bottom of this post and click on the InLinkz button “Add Your Link”. It should open a new page.
    4. In the “Next Step”, you crop the pic (easy tool) you want to display, and you’re done!

  1. A Botticelli scarf is something to have. And that jacket has all that anyone would ever want going for it. Very, very nice stuff you have on today, Patti. And thanks giving to you and Not Dead Yet, that’s for sure!

  2. Love the buttons on your jacket. Nothing like a touch of shine to brighten up an outfit. Happy Thanksgiving Patti. I’m thankful for you and your glorious blog!

  3. Whassup, stranger!
    Loving that brocade jacket and the blingy buttons, Patti! Standing outside in a jacket without contracting hypothermia seems like a dim and distant memory in the UK of late.
    A girl’s gotta to treat herself to a new pair of boots every now and then (I *might* have done the same after a beer or three over the weekend). xxx

  4. I love how you always have that cat statue in your photos! Cracks me up every time. Thanks for hosting the linkup!


  5. I’m glad to see you back in cool-weather clothes. Yay for layering. Wine and snacks? Who needs football? Heh. Hope you had a great day. Thanks for the linkup party, Patti. You keep me connected.
