I know, “remix” is a fancy fashion word for “wear it again,” but I like the sound of it. Like we are some badass rappers, remixing our tracks. That’s us over-40 women, grooving to the music and the potential art in our closets. I’m remixing two favorite, thrifted pieces today and feeling good.

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.

Always room in my closet for a striped skirt:



You’ve seen my Trina Turk tuxedo jacket (similar) before (pic) and I try to remix it on the regular. Usually with a casual vibe, but today with a silk skirt by Ralph Lauren (similar), thrifted in Toronto with the most excellent  Suzanne. The skirt is versatile, like the tux jacket, and I’ve worn it with tank tops as well as chambray shirts.


Breezy on the seaside porch.


I’m trying to show off the satin lapels, but it’s hard to see. Great old thrifted 1960’s necklace (sim), picked up in the East Village years ago.


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.

  1. I see the colour and lock on your skirt. Then I go back to appreciate the rest. Anyone who shops with Suzanne has the best luck!

  2. Patti, you know I’m a big fan of the remix too, so this look is right up my street! I love the striped skirt, especially paired with that lovely tux. Great remix, baby! Thanks for the linkup party x

  3. Ha yes, Remix makes us sound cool!!! Your tux jacket is pretty cool but the star for me is that fantastic stripy skirt. Such striking colours and so delightfully wafty!!x

  4. Beautiful look. I really like the vibrant vertical stripes of your skirt and you are reminding me I haven’t pulled out my polka dot tuxedo jacket in awhile. 🙂

  5. ( Patti, give me a backbeat…) Patti, I’ll tell you in just one day, I like the way you styled your skirt in a new kinda way… Im really loving the Trina Turk, you can wear it casual or wear it to work, Word.( wink)
    Very lovely and colorful my friend.. I know I am goofy!
    Have a great week!

  6. I love your outfit today and that skirt is amazing. Some of my favorite clothes are thrifted! I think they are all the more special because of the, sort of treasure hunt I was on when I found them. Have a great Monday! Peace! Cheryl

    • Xiao Zhu: Thank you for asking. There was a disturbance in a neorhboughiod street. Everything is back to normal. I had a five-hour sleep which is considered a daily minimum in the short-term.

  8. Love everything about this look, Patti! The great colors in the skirt, classic tuxedo blazer, really cute blue wedge sandals AND that fab 60s tassel necklace. I just bought a very similar one and can’t wait to wear it!

  9. That skirt is fabulous, i love how it’s floating in the sea breeze. It looks wonderful with the blazer. Second hand shopping rocks! x

  10. Both fabulous thrift finds! Surprising how many high end brands one can come across if you look hard enough.

    I had to check out those tapestry booties. Swoon!


  11. Perfectly inspiring! I finally remixed my featured pewter metallic leather skirt (with a freakin’ train!) again, so happy to show it off here! Thank you so much for hosting Vis-Mon, Patti!

    I love that tux jacket – satin lapels? Swoon! The stripey skirt is so pretty and I can almost feel the breeze from here!

  12. Remixing, wearing again, whatever we call it, I think that’s keeping it real. After all, there’s only so much space in the old wardrobe… I love, love, love that stripy skirt!
