Time to recap October and its OOTM
Time is flying by so fast. It’s almost Thanksgiving! The craziness of shopping for the holiday starts on Black Friday. Have you made your shopping list already? While my list is ready, I still have to do the ordering. I also still have to order holiday cookies. I don’t want to do it too early so they are not gone before the holidays. 😉 My late mom used to hide the home-baked cookies for that very reason. We loved her cookies. I really loved her sending me her home-made cookies when I was in college in Clermont-Ferrand, France. Do you like the holiday season? Sometimes I wish, I had known as a kid and a teenager how much work it is to organize that all. I probably would have enjoyed or at least appreciated it more. If only!
Let’s recap what happened on the blog in October. The Ageless Style Linkup featured how to get more outfits from the pieces you already own. Having a look at your pieces and wearing them beyond their original purpose slows fashion down without the sacrifice of variety. Looking at it from an environmental point of view it’s a good thing. Of course, shopping for new clothes for a new look is better from an economic point of view. However, even when shopping for new clothes you can be environmentally conscious by looking for clothes from sustainable sources and/or your decision which economy you want to support. 😉 The farther away, the longer the transport, the higher the emissions from the fabric to the closet.
The two post that were the most read in October were on posh chic midlife women looking stunning in leather and my Just Fashion Now review. Note that there is a Just Fashion Now discount code on my gift guide page.
I also continued to host the weekly Top of the World Style Linkup party. Readers, did you know you can also participate when you don’t have a blog? Just linkup your Instagram outfit posts. If you don’t know how to linkup you may be excited to know that I now have a page that describes the linkup process. Check it out. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me by email.

Top of the World OOTDs
The Top of the World Style Winner is picked by a random generator from the party two weeks ago. The reasons are as follow: Each party runs a week minus 5 minutes. At the time of scheduling a new party, the old party is still in full swing and blogger still can join. To give all guests the same chance, the old party has to have closed before drawing the winner. In plain English, the Top of the World Style Winner visited the linkup party two weeks ago.
The winner of this week’s feature is Johlene the blogger at Johlene Orton , who submitted her winning post at the 135th linkup party. She is ready for winter in her cool casual look with over-the-knee boots. 😉
You clicked Gail’s post the most so she became Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav. She is the blogger at Is This Mutton. Her velvet suit looks so cozy. What a great find!
Martina Berg, the blogger at Lady 50 Plus became my favorite of last week’s party. Doesn’t she look fabulous in this fake suit with lace rimmed leather skirt?
