Can an Old Dog Learn New Tricks?

Except for the quality of this picture (cellphone being my only camera option), I'm rather proud of this look.   I shall have to search to see where I got the inspiration to give credit where credit is due - but I saw a denim vest layered under a black and white jacket SOMEwhere, and I went to The Closet to see what I could come up with.

(The necklace is outside the outfit right now just for showing off.)

If I pay enough attention to the wonderful fashion blogs out there, I just may get this "layering thing" figured out!  Maybe you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!

UPDATE!  Style Artisan is where I saw it! See it for yourself - and a lot of other good stuff, too!


  1. Hey, Rebecca. Great job on the layering!

    You might have seen the denim layered under the black and white jacket on my blog. If so, I feel honored that it inspired you and you ran with it. After all, that's why we are all inspire each other!

    Here's the link to that post. Copy and paste it into the address bar to see if that's what you are looking for.

    P.S. We are never too old to try something new!

  2. Yes, Style Artisan! Glad you let me know!

  3. Love it! I always have a hard time figuring out the layering. You did a great job!

  4. Looks to me like you are doing a good job with the layering.

    I love the tin (?) container you thrifted.


  5. Good for you, Rebecca! You are a stylish lady! Sincerely, Susan from

  6. Great layering! I like the combination of the denim with the dressier jacket.

  7. You look fantastic!
    I always feel like I look so bulky when I try to layer, you did a great job!
    And I love the blog look too! Very pretty, very elegant!
    Love to you,
