New looks from shopping your closet. You can create a fresh look from your current wardrobe by just adding a belt! I often prefer to surrender the waist, but I’ve been shopping my closet for new looks, and this one I love.

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!

This vintage velvet blazer stands alone as a signature piece; I found it at Suzanne’s Etsy shop last year. It’s the perfect weight to serve as a Florida winter outer-piece. And today it got another look by adding a studded suede belt (thrifted years ago). It creates a fresh silhouette, it’s more intentional and a bit dressier.

There isn’t a color in my closet that this blazer doesn’t go with. It’s so groovy.

The dress underneath is a tall drink of water, an ombre knit maxi by Go Couture. Made in the USA, it was thrifted locally and I don’t wear it enough; it’s as comfortable as your favorite sleep dress. I’m working on ways to get more wear out of it, and it will likely end up as a comfortable sleep dress 😃.

I love an open neckline that invites necklaces, short or long. Today it’s an old silver pendant.

I can’t do a completely lady-like look! I wore my new tooled-leather Sofft boots to funk it up. The slight heel works well with a long straight dress.

  1. Blazer is one of the clothes that women like. Blazer is long so it can cover the limbs more perfectly. Especially with a good design then maybe women will like it more. By wearing a blazer, you can avoid the cold because the body will feel warm with this one outfit.

  2. Design is an important thing that needs to be considered by someone who wants to create a work of design is the heart of a work where someone needs to think about the design first before producing a work. With a good design, it can produce good work too. Therefore, here it is necessary to think carefully. I also describe how the thoughts of a creator because the design is the fruit of the mind of the generator. Design needs to be considered for various reasons so that it will produce works that not only have high artistic value but also have useful values. Those who are kind hearted can not only be enjoyed by the community but have been enjoyed in general and can even generate economic value.

  3. Design is needed to shape something into an interesting work before someone creates a work, so he or she has thought about how the design of the work is designed is like a thought that needs to be planned before being poured into the form of a design work given by someone who is a Creator then he displays the design in a work So that later the work can be enjoyed by others and even later it can have a selling value that has an economic value that is usually of high value. Therefore, design is needed by anyone, including a creator, in creating a mature design that reflects the thoughts of the creator, while the work is the real result of the design.

One way that can be used as a burst of information is social media where social media generally provides the latest information provided by someone. However, social media is less trustworthy because it is only individual and not something legal. In contrast to the news media which also provides the latest information, you can be trusted because MB is one of the official sites reporting various information.

These facts are available in online stores so that without having to go anywhere one can buy clothes. Although there are many online stores in the community, it would be better if you choose selectively. There is an online shop that can be trusted. The purchased ID card can be sent at the same time as having good quality. Thus, the public as buyers are not disappointed with the products purchased. The way to choose good clothes online is to try reading reviews or reviews from other people.

    • The existence of information shared like this can be a reference for others who are looking for the same or mainstream news in terms of clothing. Because many women who like certain clothes, including this kind of clothes. If you look at the variety of this type, including polite clothing, so it is worth wearing compared to open clothes. Polite clothing shows and looks different for the wearer where the wearer can be appreciated by others compared to revealing clothes. This kind of clothes can be a reference for women who are looking for clothes that are closed, but clothes with dark colors and plain and wide are suitable for women.

      • Blogs are one source of information that can be utilized by internet visitors when they want to find certain information. Blogs usually provide specific information which may not be found in major media such as news media or other media. For example for this blog that provides information about clothing. The information conveyed specifically discusses clothing which is rarely found in other media. Thus, one of the sources of information that can be used as a reference for the public so that specific information needs are blogs. It will be different from social media which provides brief information while providing more detailed information. The information is also quite long and more detailed

    • Information can now be shared by anyone, someone who wants to share information can use social media as a means to tell stories. Through social media, a person can provide information easily and quickly, just a picture or writing on a social agency. Then the information can be shared immediately. Everyone now has the opportunity to provide information through a website or blog. A blog or website can be created easily, in just a matter of minutes. When he already has a blog or website, he can provide information in the form of writing and images to internet users so that internet users can come to the site and get information written by the author.

  5. Belts are my go-to items when I want to update an outfit. You simply can’t have enough of them. Yours is stunning, Patti, and really compliments that equally stunning jacket perfectly. Love those booties! xxx

    • thank you dear Ann! I love how you pattern-mixed your pinks today – very fresh and fun. xox

    • Thanks Cherie! Your fuzzy red coat (and gorgeous doggie) are a great sight to wake up to! xox

    • Thank you Carmen. I loved the peek inside your daughter’s shop – great vibes! xox

    • Thanks Alison, and thanks for linking up! I liked your post about why you blog, xox.

    • Hi Jess! You’re looking fabulous as ever, and thanks for sharing some of the Midlife Influencer event with us! xox

  6. What a great look! That is of course the brilliant bit about choosing colourful clothing like the blazer, it goes with everything.

    Gotta say you look like one tall, cool drink of water in this. I’m sure Sandy thought so too.

    The boots are gorgeous!

    Thanks for the shout-out!


    • Sandy did like it, thankyouverymuch!
      Thanks for linking up and coming by – and sharing your gorgeous dress/skirt outfit. xox

  7. You make me want to do a version of this outfit, Patti. There’s no reason us FL ladies need to put our maxi skirts aside for the winter. You must have a lot of fun shopping your closet, you have such interesting pieces!

    • Thank you so much, Kim! We’re having a tiny cold spell now, yes? Enough for a scarf around the neck at least : > xox

  8. Wow – you look ready to hit the red carpet in this stunning look! Your blazer is gorgeous and compliments your purple maxi wonderfully. Shopping our closet is such a fun way of playing dress up!

  9. Absolutely stunning, Patti! I love a statement coat or jacket and your whole ensemble is witty and brilliant. I’m short waisted so rarely “do” belts, but I may give one a try.

    This month I am shopping my closet, my cosmetics train case and my perfume armoire and have found some treasures and treats. Thanks, as always, for the inspiration and reminder to have fun and be comfortable in one’s skin. : )

    • Thank you Cee for the kind words. I love the idea of shopping your makeup and perfume collections, I gotta try that! xox

    • Thanks Jodie, and I appreciated your advice on how to look good after a gym workout. I needed that! xox

    • Thanks Shelbee. Talk about groovy – that’s you in your Austin Powers floral dress! xox

  10. First of all I love that floral blazer so much. And I love it over that long colorblocked maxi skirt. Greatly-styled with a belt!

    • Interesting information for those who are looking for a blazer because they have a reference when they want to make or buy a blazer. A good blazer is a polite language that covers the whole body so that it can be worn comfortably and takes care of the woman who wears it

  11. Ha. This body doesn’t do belts any more. Why I’m still keeping some in my closet is can only be answered by the hoarder gods (no minimalism here). So I surrender to the waist! Pass the potato chips!
    You and belts, on the other hand, are friends.
    Both the dress and the blazer are special pieces.

    • Thanks Ann, don’t you love to wear special pieces? Your new clogs, for example, are fab and they join a very nice collection! xox

  12. I am all for shopping your closet , it stretches the imagination so much more than simple buying something new constantly. I love that velvet blazer , it would be perfect with so many different outfits. I hadn’t heard that tall glass of water expression in ages. Many thanks for hosting Visible Monday.

    • Thank you, dear Jill! I am so happy to learn you got your breathing problem sorted out, and it’s indeed a good cautionary tale. xox

  13. Oh, I love that blazer – be still, my heart!

    Thanks for hosting, Patti!

    • Thank YOU for coming over and sharing your style inspirations. Love the sequin dress for day! xox

  14. Patti,
    That velvet jacket is absolutely stunning. I can certainly see how it would go with, and embellish any outfit. The maxi is also quite beautiful and I adore the casual boots with it. You know I am all for fashion dichotomy.!
    And the answer is yes. As I prepare for New York fashion week I am certainly shopping my closet!

    • Thank you Elle. I know your closet will deliver beautiful looks. You’ll share lots of pics, yes? xox

  15. Patti – I love your hair! That blazer is magnificent and those booties are not only beautiful but I’m guessing they are every bit as comfortable as the name Sofft implies! That is such a terrific brand, I own one pair of their sandals and I am crazy about them!

    • Thank you Kellyann! The hair is a wig I cut into a topper – much more comfortable. I need a piece of Reese’s peanut butter chocolate cake asap : > xox

  16. I’ve been shopping my closet all month (dry January and all!) and it forces me to be more creative and I’ve found a couple of combinations that I wouldn’t have even considered before. You don’t always have to be shopping to look stylish! Thanks for hosting this link-up!

    • Hi Julia and I hope you’re doing well! I enjoyed learning more about you, and I adore your “Sassiness” idea! xox

  17. Whoa! Loving everything about this outfit. That jacket is spectacular. Looks great belted with that fab maxi. And those boots! I jumped right on the Sofft site, but didn’t find them. The tooled leather is very eyecatching.


    • You have an interesting design so I think this design is worth selling. Maybe there are some people who also like this design so there is a possibility that people will buy the dress

    • Information is one of the things that are needed by society today. Through information people can find out many things that are happening in this world.

Information can be accessed easily because there is internet which makes it easier for people to get information. For example, by using a browser only, the information can be obtained, of course, as long as you have an internet network
