Visible Mondays

A Knockoff Revisited

I've decided to join in on the fun at Not Dead Yet Style as part of her Visible Monday posts. A Fool for Fabric introduced me to the site, so thank you Margy. Visible Mondays features a photo gallery of bloggers expressing their own personal style or latest projects every Monday. For me its one of my knockoff tops in a colorful butterfly print that lifts my spirits every time I wear it.

The Not Dead Yet Style blog is based on the premise of looking "authentic and feeling beautiful in our middle years". As someone in her middle years (plus a few more years at that) the site is a platform for us to let the world know what we may lack in slim figures we make up for in experience, maturity and a lifetime of know how.  

The top made in a pretty butterfly print out of a lightweight linen-like fabric, pretty much says a lot about who I am these days. Long gone are the beautiful suits I used to wear in my "career days". Now I live in comfortable, casual clothing. So lots of what I make these days are tops and shirts I can wear when I teach, shop, whatever.  


  1. You look beautiful, and the blouse is pretty, too!

  2. Welcome to Visible Monday, and please come again! Your butterfly blouse is so charming and you look terrific. I, too, have left the business suits behind : >

    1. Thank you. Love your site. Visible Mondays is a great idea for all us who feel a bit less visible from time to time.

  3. Nice to meet you, Linda! Some of us are even a lot older than middle age! Butterflies are everyone's favorite bug, and I'm no exception. Lovely blouse, you look fresh and pretty in it, and your talents are substantial ... I just took your hint about square corner construction to heart!

  4. Nice to meet you as well. I post hints every Wednesday so hope you visit again.
