I am so happy to be collaborating with Peruvian Connection in this Fashion Over 50-One Jacket Three Ways post. I have long been a fan of their unique designs. They are a mother-daughter founded company known for their artisan-made original designs in native Andean fibers. Their signature hand loom coats and sweaters are distinctive and original. I enjoy working with companies that reflect my fondness for a collected style. I love anything vintage or sourced from companies whose quality is part of their brand identity. You all are creative and original; let your wardrobe tell your story just as your home does.
I love the beautiful details and flattering fit of their Joely Coat. I am wearing an XS which is my normal size in their handknits. Here I am wearing my favorite Spanx leggings (you know the ones), my bedstu manchester boots (one of the few pairs of boots that can accommodate my bunion), the Peruvian connection extreme turtleneck . I think it’s the best on the market . It is long in the torso, the neck stays up and they wear like iron. Some colors are buy one and get one 1/2 off right now. The necklace I am wearing came from local favorite Tancredi and Morgen. I am not sure if it is still available but give them a call they may be able to source it for you.
Note to self no closeup side view too many wrinkles! Isn’t the back of this sweater just as pretty as the front?
Okay pardner maybe I went a little too far with this look. I just got back from Texas and those ladies can rock a pair of cowboy boots and a hat. I am surprised I can still get into mine. They are from Ariat and they are super comfortable. I may dust them off and start wearing them again.
I am trying to learn to model like a fashion blogger (I know it’s hopeless). I am wearing my …cross earrings and a Navajo pin I bought on Ebay. I have owned the concho belt for over 20 years. They are coming back, are they not? FYI the chambray shirt and jeans are black not blue as they appear in this photo. That’s what happens when you have an amateur photographer. I finally invested in a pair of perscription sunglassed (darn they are expensive). I purchased them at Site for Sore Eyes in Salinas.
Here I am wearing a great turtleneck sweater I purchased this year from Anthropologie. I feel like I should buy ten of these (wish they weren’t quite as pricey) while they are still in stock. They are stretchy, thick and super soft. Did
I mention they are flattering as well? The skirt is an earlier Peruvian Connection version (I will link to similar) and the boots are my trusty La Canadienne boots that are several years old.
This look features just the skirt and the turtleneck along with an obi belt (so you can see how slimming the sweater is).
Thanks for reading my post Over 50 Fashion One Jacket Styled Three Ways. I have linked everything that is available (or similar) in the widget below each look. Would you prefer I just link everything at the bottom? I am never sure which is the most convenient.
Do you like to purchase a few artisanal items to give your wardrobe a more personal signature look? I would love to hear about them if so. I have gotten a lot of positive comments about my fashion posts. Please let me know what you would like to see more or less of. Have a great weekend!
