Alert the media! I got dressed and put on makeup! It actually felt good to put on some makeup, semi fix my hair and put on a pretty dress. It’s been awhile and I can’t wait to get back to looking cuter again. When we don’t have anyplace to go except the grocery store and Home Depot, it makes us just a little slack on what we wear, doesn’t it?
One of my friends, Jill, posted this dress on Instagram a few days ago from Target, so I immediately went online and looked it up. It’s their Knox Rose brand and I thought it was so cute and it’s on sale so I promptly bought it online for pickup at my local store the next day. I didn’t even try it on until I got home and I just think it’s so cute.
It would be a great 4th of July dress with the colors, but the floral is very happy and I like the way it’s cut too. The banding around the bottom is flattering and I love the midi length, perfect on me. I don’t like to show a lot of leg these days.
I like that it has a waistline and the bands accent that too. Very flattering, I think with a little slightly flutter sleeve.
Closer look at the pattern and jewelry.
I also got a new lipstick recently. One of my online friends posted about her new Mac lipstick that she bought called Sweet Sakura. It’s in the red family and I had been wanting a new red lipstick so I did the online try on session they offer at Mac and decided this color would work for me and my coloring. It’s not too bright red, but a fresh look for summer with my coral reds. Here’s a link to that if you want to check it out and go to Mac.com to virtual try on their lipsticks on your computer. It really did help. I found the best price at Belk, so ordered online.
Target has some really cute dresses right now and this one and several others are on sale for $27.99, so I was happy to find a cute floral summer midi dress for this price. It will be fun for summer! I can wear it with flat sandals too and a jeans jacket for a casual look. I’m wearing my Grace & Heart jewelry with the dress, so let me know if you’re interested in shopping these pieces.
Here’s a link to my Grace and Heart shopping page! Click the catalog to shop and let me know if you have questions.
Here is the dress with other links as well as the sneakers below (affiliate links used). Just click the pics to shop!
Also, I wanted to share these great no-show socks with you today! Sheec reached out to me and sent me several of their no-show socks to try out and I have to tell you, they are great. I’m not getting paid to say that, but this is an affiliate link that I’m sharing in case you want to try them too.
You can get 15% off by using the code SH15 on any orders you place (one time use only, so stock up if you want to try a few). I think you’ll love them too!
The only pair from Sheec I have worn out of the house are these Active X socks and they work great with my tennis shoes that I want to wear socks with. The fabric is soft (made from modal, nylon & elastane), they have a silicone grip on the heel that keeps them in place. I have others that have that but don’t always stay in place. These have been perfect with my sneakers!
From the side, these are Active X Mid Cut No-Show socks.
And here they are with my leopard sneakers. You can hardly see them peeking out. They come in other colors too like this khaki shade.
I’m super impressed with the way they feel on my feet and the fact that they stay in place is great.
Sheec sent me several other pair to try out and I can’t wait to see how they work with different styles of shoes. The dressy no-shows come in low-cut, mid-cut, and high-cut. This fabric is a little different than the Active X pair I showed you, but still very soft and comfortable (Cotton, Nylon, Polyester Spandex Blend). These are more for dressy shoes.
They have so many speciality type socks like these ball of foot cushions.
Ultra low liners.
I wouldn’t tell you I love them if I didn’t and I really do love them. They aren’t inexpensive but if you’ve tried other brands that didn’t really work, I think you’ll be pleased with these. They have something for every shoe in your close, so check out the Sheec socks women’s collection.
That’s it for today’s Fashion over 50, so thanks for stopping by!
You look beautiful!
I’ve followed you for many years and I must say….THIS is my very favorite look on you!!! You look gorgeous!!!! I’m ordering one!!😄
Thank you, Patty, I love this little dress!
The dress looks good on you, however the older I get the more I hate my arms and neck. I feel uncomfortable without some kind of sleeve. When I was younger I can remember my mom saying that she liked her arms covered and I always thought it was kind of silly but I now realize what she said is exactly how I feel about my arms now. The last time you had your haircut it seemed a little different but I really liked the cut. Your hair looks great today by the way.
Hi, Betty, I’ve heard women say that too. I’m still good with my arms but I do feel that way about my legs so I’m just not that comfortable in above the knee dresses and midi/maxi is my comfort zone. My haircut is the same, it’s longer now because I’m due for a haircut, but it’s always this same style, either straight or curly.

I’ve only recently started following you and truly enjoy your blog. I returned to your original postings and loved reading about your family. Your parents are the cutest couple…really sensed the love you all share.
You look lovely in today’s post…dress is so cute on you.
Hi, Beverly, welcome and thank you so much, so glad to have you here. We are a close family as you’ve seen and I’m grateful to still have my parents.

Good morning Rhoda. As usual you always add to the outfits you wear and display. You look beautiful in this dress and I love the red lipstick! I might just put a little makeup on today, too. It certainly does make a girl feel good. Thanks for your inspiring message. Love to you, your hubby and your family. Stay safe. 😷
Thank you, Jeanie, it felt good to dress up for a minute! Felt like normal and like I was really going somewhere. I sure don’t do makeup everyday though, although I’m looking forward to getting out again this summer.
Is the lipstick a glossy type or more matte? It is such a pretty color on you!
Hi, Lynne, it’s in between matte and glossy, so creamy but not too shiny. I don’t like really matte although it stays on well, I like a little creaminess. This one is good!
Sheri Goddard says
Good afternoon. You look great in this dress! With age, I began to notice that my wardrobe was becoming dull and uninteresting and I decided to change it. I want to get a lot of bright things like this dress, I like these colors and it looks so cute. I just started following your blog and you inspire me to look better. Thanks, have a nice day!
Hi, Sheri, thank you for following, I appreciate that. I do enjoy looking cute these days and you’re right, we have to make an effort. I don’t always succeed.
Debbie G says
Beautiful! Your hair, makeup and this dress are perfection on you. Too bad you have no where to go. I’m going to have to dress up one day. Maybe Sunday.
Hi, Debbie, it felt good for about 10 minutes and then I was back in my home comfy clothes, but putting on makeup definitely makes me feel better.
Do you still offer jewelry for sale? I looked but couldn’t find it. Thanks
Love this dress so much I just ordered. We’re definitely having summer dress weather here in Northern California … finally. I also love the necklaces you paired with it. How can I find the link to your jewelry site? xo
Hi, Juliet, I am doing a new link for this month, so hang on til I get it. Here’s my shopping link for this month:
I love Sheec socks! Yes, they are expensive but they are the only ones that stay on my feet! I try not to wear them too often and I wash them by hand, hoping they’ll last a long time.
You look great in that dress. It’s youthful looking but not too young.
They are so nice, I’m very impressed with mine.
I love that Floral dress and ordered three similar florals in different colors because they were on sale! So feminine and perfect for spring and summer.
Andrea, I’m so glad, I love this dress and I think you’ll enjoy the others too.
Mary Clare says
This dress is so eye catching on you great style!

I love that dress…..so pretty and I also love your jewelry and your shade of lipstick. It all looks awesome….especially on you, Rhoda!!!
Thank you, Diane!
Love that dress on you and yes it would look cute for July 4th. I am not sure it would look flattering on me since I am shorter and full figured. Short waist dresses typically don’t look good on me. I am a big fan of MAC lipsticks though. I buy them at a cosmetic outlet but since they are still closed I might have order online instead.
HI, Teresa, the dress is cute, I don’t think it’s short waisted. It seemed to fall on my natural waist.
Thanks for sharing, the dress looks beautiful on you. I went online and purchased one for myself, it will be a good work dress.
