Welcome to The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book!

Welcome! This is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book!

Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this serie after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!

You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!

Send your photo with a few sentences if it is a Good Buy or a Good-Bye and we will put you in the spotlights! Send it please before the 10th of each month to or to

By joining The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book, you agree to receive a monthly reminder email for the linkup.

So let’s start with the first serie of The GoodBuy/Good-Bye Book!

And the theme is : Shoes!

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee On the EdgeThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Shoes

I was unsure of the practicality of these bubble gum pink velvet booties when I first purchased them thinking they may be a little too pink and little too glittery for my taste.  But they were a great deal at $20 and they are quite bold.  And I like bold.  So I went for it.  They sat in my closet for a few weeks, but once I styled them the first time and realized how comfortable they were, too, they began making regular appearances in my daily outfits.  I have actually worn them quite a few times…I love them paired with black because it really lets them stand out.  These were definitely a Good Buy!

Next our loyal friend Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of StyleThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: ShoesThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Shoes

Hi guys,

The photo I’m submitting is both a good buy and good bye pair of booties!! I attached a close up photo too, but only if you want to use it….

I absolutely love the embroidered booties that are shown everywhere, and I purchased these online last year. I love them…..BUT for some reason the pitch is not super easy to walk or stand in for a long period of time. I even saw the same print at DSW this year in a shorter heel and I almost bought those instead. But I paid more than I usually do for this pair, so I didn’t want to waste that money. Silly, right? Because it’s just as much of a waste to not wear them. In fact, this year, I took them to a cobbler to see if he could make the heel shorter. And he did but only about half an inch. It’s made them a little better to wear, but I may just have to say good bye. The verdict is still out…..

Thanks for doing this!!

Love, Jodie
Next is Michelle of Seechele_stylesThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Shoes

Hi my leopard boots are by far my Best Buy from Target I wore them all fall ; winter and I’ll definitely be wearing them in the spring price was 39.99

The lovely Sonja of YustSoMeThe Good Bye/Good-Bye Book: Shoes

I don’t like those Mocassin shoes, because they don’t fit by my style. but I bought them once because I had so much pain in my foot that day, walking on heels, I needed something flat!The Good Bye/Good-Bye Book: Shoes The Silver shoes I loved so much, but everytime I step into them my feet hurt. The fabric is like cardboard and damnnnn hell… they are fun to look at, but no fun wearing!

And my Good Buy shoes!The Good Bye/Good-Bye Book: ShoesThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Shoes

I have these for a long time now. They give me a 80s, London, Vivienne Westwood, Malcolm Mclaren, Sex Pistols, punk kind of vibe! I love that!

Thank you all for participating. We enjoy doing this very much! The theme for next month is: GREEN! And if you have a nice idea for a theme yourself, let us know!

So start searching for those items that are a Good Buy or Good-Bye!


Leopard print dress without wearing black on it!

Because that is how I usually wear a leopard print dress or skirt. Always with black. But why not try it to wear with colors! If we don’t try anything, we would always look the same don’t we? And it is of course very predictable to wear it with black. But hey, it sure does look good. Everything looks good with black! So colors then. I will show you a few options that I like. If you also are a huge fan( or not so huge, but you wear it from time to time) of leopard print, with what colors do you wear it? Have you ever tried to wear it with colors? I would love to see your photo of your leopard print dress or skirt wearing it with colors. You can show it on Instagram on #nancysfancyfashionstyle and perhaps I can make a great post of all your creations! That would be fun!

*This is a sponsored post. The dress was given to me to review.

What colors to wear with a leopard print dress

First I wanted to try it with a blush cardigan, I think the softness of that color makes the dress somewhat sweeter. But I find it very pale. I think it would look good when I have a bit more of a teint and then with pink sandals or flats. Then the dress with my navy military jacket and blue boots. I like this look, the jacket is from long ago, but is still one of my favorites. The blue boots are even older and I love them. The color is fabulous! Then the dress with yellow, not my favorite as I actually don’t like yellow that much. You can see that pale and softer colors don’t look good in my face. I need dark colors! Then a burgundy look. I like this one too. It is a real autumn look. And then at last with black! I still like it with black the best. We had a evening with friends last Saturday, and this is what I wore, with the black cardigan.(it is always very cold at our friend’s house, so I put on extra layers, a thermo legging and boots that would keep my feet warm. When we came there it was bloody hot! He had set the temperature higher because he knew I was always cold at his place. So sweet, but it felt like I had hot flashes all evening!) I havn’t put any links to the cardigans and boots, because they are all older. I linked instead to the posts where they were featured in. The dress is on sale, can you believe it! It is a perfect dress to wear in spring and summer. They also have fabulous leopard print jackets on sale.

Over 50 fashion: vinyl biker jacket

Over 50 fashion? Well, sometimes I love something so much and then life (or whatever) reminds me that I am over 50! On one hand I couldn’t care less, on the other I don’t want to look like a fool. I asked you a few weeks ago what your opinion was about these leggings. There were a few who said no, but the majority liked it. That pulled me over the line. And they are fabulous. And you already saw my lacquer boots. And then I saw this amazing vinyl trenchcoat, The black one that I ordered is sold out now, but it was one size to large. But I thought, well coats are often to tight so let’s go for it. It was to big. But it was such a stunning one. I was really disappointed.

*This is a sponsord post. Check the Rosegal Women’s day offers!


From little girl to over 50 fashion

Let me explain what I have with lacquer. It all started when I was a little girl. About 4 years old. I was allowed to choose new shoes from my grandparents. And I new exactly what I wanted. Black pattern shoes! They went with me to a shoe shop in another town, because they had a kind of X-ray machine so that they could see if the shoe fitted well. My grandparents knew me very well. because if I had found the perfect pair, I would have said that they were okay even if they were too small. Nothing much has changed…..

And then, at the age of 10,11, I had a Barbie doll with cropped jeans and a black lacquer trenchcoat! How amazing that was. I was totally in love with that outfit and so many times I wished I had that coat in my size! So you can imagine my disappointment when I finaly saw that perfect one and it was to big. But then I got an email from Wearall for a collaboration. And what did I find: Yes, a lacquer jacket! And do you know what is so funny? When I received the package, I remembered that when I was in my late 20s, I already had such a jacket. So I can say that patent leather runs like a thread through my life!over 50 fashionover 50 fashionover 50 fashionover 50 fashionover 50 fashionover 50 fashionover 50 fashionover 50 fashionover 50 fashion

Styled by……….

Styled by…..tells the story behind someones style. What does a person tell by the way she or he is dressed? What does it say about their personality? When did they began to create their own style? The series is published every first Tuesday of the month.

Do you also have a story to tell, and do you also have beautiful pictures of your style evolution? I, and many of my readers, want to read your story! I would love it if you can join the fun too! You can find all the info in the Styled by… or contact me via

This month Sonja of Yustsome tells her Style Story!

Styled by… Sonja

Fashion.… some are born with style, some had to find there own. I think I am still searching?

I was very young when my mum learned us to sew our own clothes. First some Barbie clothes and after a few years I was able to make my own dresses, blouses, etc.

Mum made our clothes, I am a twin, so in the beginning it was all the same, but then she made clothes in different colors. Still the same, you could see that we belonged to each other, but also our own identity.Styled by..........Sonja

I was very proud of my own fashionstyle, but at school they didn’t understand my way to express myself. So I turned into an object to bully. They threw my clothes into toilets at school. I cried a lot and decided to adapt…Styled by..........Sonja

After several years I could be more myself, because I went to a graphic designer school and the people in the city were more into fashion and style.Styled by..........Sonja

I loved to wear big shoes, high heels, pointed noses, a lot of bling! I did shop at a boutique called Art, but also very expensive clothes. My mother sometimes wondered how much I did spend on my clothes. A jeans from Esprit was €169,- but a jacket I loved (designer brand) was €250,- it was sometimes really stupid I know… but I loved to spoil myself.

After I became a mom, I decided to wear more comfy clothes. No more design, no more stylish me, just sweaters, jeans and sneakers.Styled by..........Sonja

I was glad that my oldest son and I had an photoshoot (I was 29 and still not married, so my son and I decided to do a fake marriage) so we could dress up and be handsome!

The clothes for my son I made myself! At that age it was fun, but after a few years he didn’t like it anymore.

I always heard from my ex that I was fat like a pig… today I looked at this picture and cried again, because I now see how beautiful I was at that time!

Sometimes angels come towards you and I met mine. He loved me, not for my clothes but the funny me, the woman who cares… he stayed, Yes he did, also when I got pregnant and gained 30 kilo’s.Styled by..........Sonja

My weddingdress I made myself, off course that baby suit too and the jacket my husband wears. The Chinese ensemble my oldest son wears I found in a Chinese store.

I never wanted to marry in white. My dream dress was something like this… like I would be the stephmother of Snowwhite.Styled by..........Sonja

My style was always black and white. I did wear colors, but only because it was fashionable. I mostly like the gothic style… if I was younger I would wear more skirts with lace, bustiers, fancy jackets…

What do I wear now?

So in 2017 I started my fashion posts on my blog. And I was more me, I had a trauma… because in my childhood I was bullied and it was also not save at home (my father abused us)… Nobody did know this, so I always was insecure about my body. My father told me that I was ugly, my ex told me I was a pig, at school they told me I was weird and my colleagues at work told me I was fat again…

I learned to love myself, and it happened. It was a struggle, it was painful but I am glad I got throughout this rough period.

This is me.… look at me!Styled by..........SonjaStyled by..........Sonja

I found some old clothes at my mothers attic from myself..…


These trousers are about 20 years old,  my husband does not like the print. So I know it was before I met him! 😉Styled by..........Sonja

This blazer I bought for an photoshoot with my boy friend Helmuth at the age of 21, so this is 28 years old!Styled by..........SonjaStyled by..........Sonja

This bomberjacket is also from the 80s and I still love it! I wished I could wear this more often!

Isn’t this funny? I can still wear my old clothes! Yeah!

I hope you liked my Styled by…..Sonja, sometimes we have to travel a journey to become who we are!

And I became a woman with my own style, my own taste, I can be me!Styled by Sonja
