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.

Love your skirt! Looking good!
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!
Absolutely elegant! I’m loving your red lipstick – bold, bright and looks amazing on you. xx
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
Love remixing! Colourful stripes are beautiful and worn with a tux is classy!
BTW I have a similar necklace that belonged to my mom, also from the ’60s.
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
Such a fun look, love the idea of ‘remixing.’
Honestly, I’m quite obsessed with your skirt, love all the colours! Kirsten xx
That is one fabulous skirt! Love the pleats and multi colors. =)
Love the skirt. You know how I like vibrant colours. And the vintage necklace.
Stripes in the breeze, you can’t beat that. Nor can you buy it.
Just a quick note, I love the word remixing, it sounds very fresh!
Have a great week!
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. 🙂
I like the wordage of remix—because of course we have to wear items over and over, but it’s even better to mix them differently instead of falling into ruts!!
Love the striped skirt—because it’s unique with the stripes going vertically!
( 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!
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.
REMIX – love it!!! you look fabulous .. thank thank you for hosting <3
Hi Patti – you are so rocking that lovely skirt!!!
I’m back to the blog world with the 3rd installment of my collaboration with Los Angeles brand TOBI – come check it out and lemme know what you think! #shopTobi
Have a great week ahead!
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!
I agree, both of those pieces are so versatile!
Patti, fabulous, fabulous, fabulous skirt! And I always love a great tuxedo jacket. The pairing is just stunning!
Love the colors and floatiness of the skirt! And that blazer is so versatile; both seasonless and timeless.
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
I love that skirt! It is so stunning with its multiple colors.
Remixing like the badasses we are, yesssssssss! 😀
I too love stripes! Your skirt is fabulous as well as the jacket! Lovely remix!
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!
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!
Love this striped skirt on you, such a pretty look!
Beautiful skirt! I love it mixed with the blazer! 🙂
Fabulous skirt and I love the term remix as opposed to “on-repeat” that is so often used. Thanks for the inspirations and the link up.
That stripy skirt is so gorgeous! You have such a lovely blog here, keep up your amazing work pretty lady! x
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!
Fabulous remixed outfit, Patti! Such a nice black jacket & I love the colors in the skirt! So pretty!
Thanks for the link up & have a great week!
Excellent look! I really love your colorful stripe skirt
Love that skirt to pieces Patti!! So fun and so you pretty lady!!
Great look!! Loving the jacket!! 🙂
Nothing like a little remixing to get the creative juices going, Patti! I love the colours and swoosh of your skirt and those satin lapels are both funky and elegant.
Very cool look, Patti…love how you styled this! Thanks for the link up…have a wonderful week!
