I’m Forever Preaching About Lifestyle and It’s Importance Over Genes in Determining How We Age...Or Don’t Age...Right?
Posted on December 29 2015
A significant part of a positive LifeStyle is having friends and socializing. Here I am, practicing what I preach. Richard and I took these pictures of each other on our way out to attend our Club’s season’s opening gala, where we did indeed mingle with great friends and danced the night away. Richard had no trouble keeping up with me either, but he’s younger (3 months) :)
By the way, do you like my dress? I hope so because I designed it! I ordered the fabric by mail, you can do it too. (http://www.distinctivefabric.com/) The company lets you choose a few fabrics and will mail actual Fabric Swatches to you to choose from.
Although I learned to sew from my grandmother and mother I did not sew this dress. I gave a rough sketch to a local dressmaker. After a couple of fittings and some adjustments, Presto! I had an original gown at a fraction of what it would have cost otherwise.
Creative projects like this help keep us young - hope this inspires you to try new things too.
I was lucky to find this handbag in a discount store for $35.95 would you believe! A perfect match!
