Some days, a jolly mix of what’s in your closet makes for just the right look. No need to press the crowds at Macy’s (opened at 5AM on Friday!). Just take another look at what you’ve got, throw some pieces on the bed and have a private fashion show. As I had nothing new and fab to show you today, I put together some familiar things and made a clothing casserole.
|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.|
OK, the blouse with the adorable Bambi print (similar) was recently thrifted in NYC for about $15, so it is new-to-me, and already a favorite. Is 61 too old to wear a Bambi blouse? Oh hell no. The olive/gold shrug (sim) was thrifted a couple of years ago, and the AllSaints trousers (sim) were an A+ thrift score, also in Greenwich Village. The Aldo boots (sim) are old as the hills, and have been resoled many times; you can’t give up a pair of comfortable black boots, right?
Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.

Absolutely love your pants. So chic and such a perfect fit!
I’ve been shopping my closet a lot lately! I always try to purchase things off season to save a $ and then it’s all new when the time comes. Looking great as always lady! Peace! Cheryl
That’s an adorable print and who doesn’t love cats? Only crazy people! xxx
ooo! Really love the velvet shrug on you Patti, such a pretty shade. The top is so delicate and adorable! Have a great week!
LOVE the Bambi blouse, now that is my kind of style!
I love it, your outfit is so English country style. Love, Kirsten xx
Ha ha! It isn’t surprising baby deer like cats. They are both so damn cute.
I adore the blouse (I’d have arm wrestled you for that one!) but I especially like that shrug. I see you were ahead of the game picking up some velvet well before it was deemed “on trend” ; )
I ordered a cat brooche last week. Aren’t they the cutests!
Love the slight equestrian vibe you’ve got in this outfit. And I like cats, too! 😀
The bambi top is lovely, and so suitable for this time of year! And deer like cats: who knew?
Love the clothing casserole Patti! I’m especially loving the velvet shrug and the baby deer blouse…whimsical coolness!
Your Bambi blouse is just too cute. It is such fun to see what new combinations our own closets have to offer.
It is never too old to wear a Bambi blouse – I absolutely love it!
How cute is that top?! I need to add some whimsical pieces to my wardrobe.
Putting together an outfit with what’s already in your closet can be a lot of fun. Your outfit came together beautifully – such a fun blouse!
Thanks for the link up & have a great week!
I love your velvet shrug, is it vintage? Thank you for your always wonderful link up!
So cute Patti. And lucky you to have found it! This is one stylish outfit you got here today! Thanks for the link-up and have a great week. xo Sabina
Lovely cat print blouse and lovely ALWAYS you.
Happy Monday, dear Patti.
Oh Patti, I hope it’s NEVER too old to wear a Bambi print! Such adorable find. Thank you for the link-up!!
I love this outfit – you look ready to go riding, tally ho! The Bambi blouse is gorgeous, especially with Suzanne’s pin, and I actually like it even better with that black bra, edgy!
Lovely blouse! And a very stylish look on the whole!
Never too old for Bambi and this shirt looks so good on you.Totally agree on shopping your closet , so often it reveals forgotten hidden treasure.
Love the cat shirt and the velvet shrug! 🙂
I do love that saying—a clothing casserole. Because I can’t tell you how many times, I’ll say to my husband—I think I’ll buy this. And he replies—don’t you already have one like it? And he’s usually right!
Love the bambis!!
Awww, who doesn’t love Bambi? Very cute. Thank you for hosting such a great link up, Patti! Have a good week. 🙂
Very cute .. and I love cats too! 😀
I like cats, too. 😉 You are really lovely, Patti!
You look lovely as usual. I love shopping as a sport but I agree that shopping ones own closet and remixing long time favorites can be most satisfying. It also will yield a unique look that that suits you best. Thanks for sharing and hosting.
Never too old for Bambi! Doesn’t even compute! And I love the postmodern cat badge! You are so right about shopping your closet. My only fear is if I let too many clothes out of the cupboard onto the bed for a fashion show, I will never get them back in again. Thanks so much for hosting Visible Monday again – it’s the best!!
Love the blouse, AND the pin! Thanks, Patti
Cute blouse, at any age. Age has nothing to do with style; only personality matters.
Cute blouse! Thanks for the linkup Patti!
