The first Zacks opened in Kitchener, Ontario almost 100 years ago (1921). Today there are 19 stores across Ontario and Quebec: working with Canadian manufacturers and some importers. Everything in the store was 50% off for Boxing Day.
I bought this sweater because I like the tartan sleeves which gives this top a layered look. It’s everything I love in a sweater: style and cozy comfort and it’s long enough to wear with my burnt velvet leggings.
I wore it for a luncheon at my place during the Christmas holidays and for a day trip to Sarnia with my family.
Sarnia is a two-hour drive from where we live. We took a walk by the St. Clair River; across the bridge is the USA.
Thanks for stopping by!

It’s been 100 years since the flappers changed fashion: the Roaring ’20s when hemlines were raised and waistlines were relaxed. Gone were the days of huge ornate hats and constraining corsets. Thank goodness! Some things are passé for a reason.
Vintage styles—whether genuine vintage or vintage-inspired—have grown in popularity this century. I love how we can borrow fashion from different eras, that’s one of the things I love about our times.
Some things never go out of style, like lace and ruffles.
When I bought these wrap pants last summer with my fashionable friend Maggie, I knew I’d have lots of tops I could wear with them; everything goes with black! We had so much fun doing a photoshoot together as you can see HERE if you missed it.
I just love the style of these wrap pants with ruffles: so comfortable, perfect for dancing and my tattoo tights. Here are some of the tops I’ve paired them with.
I wore this red top with a lace neckline to a Christmas party.
Black and white is always a classic, inspired by my fashionable friend Maggie.
This pink lace top was thrifted and looks great with black.
I can wear any print as well as solid colours. I love the style of this polka-dot blouse for a chic boho look.
All black is dramatic for my New Year’s outfit. It’s a tradition that I wear black for New Year’s parties.
It will be interesting to see what styles will be popular during the next few years. Have a Fashionable New Year!
What did you wear for New Year’s Eve?

Linking up with VISIBLE MONDAY
You never know what treasures you’ll find thrifting. Case in point–this chic faux suede jacket made in Canada by Joseph Ribkoff. Shopping at Goodwill and secondhand shops is easy on the budget, great for the environment and helps support a good cause. Win, win, win!
Joseph Ribkoff is a Canadian designer who started his own business in the fashion industry in 1957 when he was only 21 years old. His company is known for quality, high fashion and timeless classic styles.
After retiring from hairdressing, my mother worked for Holt Renfrew (high-end Canadian retail store) for a few years and I became familiar with Joseph Ribkoff fashion as well as other famous designers like Diane Von Furstenberg. I can’t afford to shop at Holt Renfrew so it’s a delight to find these luxury brands while searching through thrift stores.
I share Joseph Ribkoff’s sentiments …
“We design for a state of mind—for a woman that feels young.”
“We focus in on a fit for a woman who is anywhere from 40 to 80 years old. However, the women who wear our clothes don’t see themselves as older; they feel young.” ~Joseph Ribkoff
When I started blogging 8 years ago I wanted to encourage women no matter our age that we can look good and feel great!
- Staying young – having a positive outlook and good attitude.
- Keeping active – various forms of physical activities according to interests and abilities.
- Living healthy – eating nutritious, plant-based food, getting proper rest, taking care of skin and hair.
- Being fashionable – having fun with style; clothes, shoes and accessories.
