Short dress over 50, oh yeah!

short dress over 50

Wearing a short dress over 50, and feeling just good in it!

Most of you know that I have only bought pre-loved clothing for the first time in about a year or so. Before that I always had something against it. Not against the more sustainable use of material things, but more against wearing clothes that someone else I don’t know has already worn. I’m a bit of a bug when it comes to hygiene. Just not over the edge of exaggeration, I think. But it is pretty clean (you can also read sterile) at our home.

Wearing a pre loved short dress over 50

So yes, clothes that have been worn by someone else, was a thing. But I am over it now and I am always looking for a nice brand that I do not know on second hand sites. For example, my sister gave me a name of a brand that I did not know yet, and this is the dress from that brand, LolaLiza. (not a sponsored post, just want to introduce you to this brand)

Not only companies are more socially aware, but also bands

Nowadays people are becoming more aware of being more economical when it comes to buying clothes. And more and more companies are becoming more social. Here you can read what Kaya jewelry contributes. A very social company that I worked with a few months ago.

But what surprised me a few weeks ago, was the Metallica performance in the Netherlands. Unfortunately I have not been there. But one day after the performance, Gerben read that Metallica, in the country where they performe, donate a certain percentage of the performance  at a charity they chose. In the Netherlands they had chosen children from the food bank. And not even in the capital but here in the neighborhood in the east. The children, whose parents receive packages from the food bank, get a birthday present and a clothing package twice a year. And Metallica donated € 24.000! I thought that was great! How social is that!

Short dress over 50 and two cardigans

I wear the dress with two different cardigans. I can’t actually choose which I like best, so I want to leave that to you. The yellow one you saw here before , and the blue one here. I bought the sandals last year. I don’t wear them often because they don’t match with everything I wear in terms of style, but I find them so beautiful! Actually it strikes me now that they would look very nice under a maxi dress that I don’t have. And now I should be ashamed, because I started this post with buying second-hand clothes and think twice before you buy. Now I am thinking if I would want to buy a maxi dress. I’m just going to search online. I promise it will either be a pre-loved one or not!

    Wow what a wonderful second hand find! I have no doubt about preownd clothes etc. It’s better than buy many retail clothes. 😉

    Good morning Nancy.

    Great to see you wear what you like and looking good while doing so. It’s wonderful how many bloggers have started wearing pre-loved clothes, sending out a positive and sustainable signal to their followers.

    As for the 2 cardigans, I cannot decide either. I love the colour of the lime one best and the length of the dark blue one. Maybe you can find a longer lime-coloured one somewhere?

    Love, Lieske

    That is a great dress Nancy. It would be knee length on me so I will look up the brand. As I write I am wearing a thrifted skirt. It’s how I get many of my work clothes. Wouldnt it be great if all bands did that. Thanks for joining my linkup.

    You have just the best shape!! No matter how short or long, simple or embellished your look, the bottom line is…you look amazing in everything.

    Great length on your dress. And I love the gathering/ruching at the waist. Most flattering fit. I bought a khaki green skirt in the spring that I love. LOVE. But when I sit down, it is a bit short. I am forever tugging at it and feeling uncomfortable like I am showing too much grandma leg!! Dad gum it. Just need to wear it for standing room only occasions.

    It’s amazing how the cardigans change the look of the whole outfit! SO stylish. You always look so great in a wrap dress!
    I do think that “fast fashion” is on it’s way out and I’ll be happy to see the back of it.

    That is a cute dress and you wear it well, I really like the colour combos of both cardigans with it!

    I try to buy second hand as much as possible but I also asked for some gift cards for Christmas so I shop in the stores now and then too! 🙂

    I hope that you are having a great week so far 🙂

    Oh those shoes are so pretty! I love the heel on them! And what a great find in that dress: I love the pattern. Lately I don’t wear my shorter dress as much since they are less practical with the kiddos when they are little.

    That’s very cool about Metallica – I did not know that! I love that people are so much more aware now about how their purchases impact the rest of the world.

    I love this short hemline on you, Nancy – woo, you have great legs, girlfriend! I prefer the yellow cardigan, as the sunny colour seems more summery to me, and the length of it just works with the length of the dress better, in my opinion. I like the longer cardi too, but feel like then I want high boots with the dress – maybe a fun fall look?

      I love long cardigans and long boots too! This dress is going to the second hand shop,it’s a bit to tight for me!
