Style Not Age share - Our Perfect Little Black Number's for NYE.

Hello and welcome to my over fifties blog.
To be honest it's not only for over 50's, everyone is welcome.
And just like that Christmas was over.  All that stress, worry, anxiety and panic for one day and it comes and goes in the flash of an eye.  Why oh why do I worry so much?
My Christmas day was rather a different version than the one I had planned in my mind!  One of the family tested positive for Covid and I had to re-arrange the whole day!  We managed to pack three cars full of cooking ingredients, utensils, cutlery, presents and the turkey and use my daughters house.  At least I could enjoy my day unlike last year but one I hope I don't have to relive next year!
Hope your's went well, I ate way too much as usual.  The gym and spin class can't come quick enough - oh are the gym's still open?  I do hope so.🙏

Can you believe it's the last challenge this year for my group of friends from the Style Not Age Collective ... do stop by for a brand new challenge next month - I wonder what we'll be set!
So are you venturing out for NYE?  With the Government changing plans for day to day, it's hard to know what will happen.  We aren't actually going out so I'll probably be indoors in a lounge suit or something equally as comfortable to laze about in!  Had I been going out and if I hadn't eaten my weight in chocolates over Christmas I'd be wearing this classy number.

I was drawn to this LBD by the lace, the detailing is exquisite.  Pair that with the circle rivets and studs and you've got yourself an absolute stunner.  It's a midi length with a big dollop of sass ... the lining finishes above the knee - how very daring for me.  It's actually a tad snug for me as I bought it at my smallest a couple of years ago, but I'll be hitting the diet and gym sessions soon so hope next time I don it it'll be a perfect fit!

Let's have a peek at what my friends have picked to share today.

Gail - Is This Mutton opted for a vintage Hobbs dress, that quite frankly looks like brand new!  That's what you get when you buy quality my friends. 

Anna - Anna's Island Style picked this stunning vintage dress from Gina Bacconi.  The detail in this Italian designers dress is so glamorous, you'll be the belle of the ball in this one Anna. 

Emma - Style Splash  has also chosen a oldie but goodie! Her black Bastyan dress looks as good as new as do her sparkly shoes.  That cowl neckline is a winning feature that always looks flattering I think. X

Hilda - Over the Hilda has styled an old favourite from Biba. It's a perfect chic style and never-go-out-of-date black and white spot.  You really can't go wrong with this trendy dress.

Much love and thanks for popping by today, you make it all worth it.
Have a great last week of the year, I'll see you on Thursday for the last #linkup of 2021!
Cheerio for now my friends. X



  1. Happy Christmas Jacqui and wishing you a happy New Year too when it comes! Don't do yourself down Jacqui - the dress fits you like a dream! I love the funky rivets and studs giving this demure lace dress a very cool edge.

    Won't we all be pleased to emerge from this Covid madness and all of the upset it's causing?

  2. I love your dress - it looks classy and distinctive with the rivet and lace details! A great challenge Jacqui and look forward to the challenges of 2022! A Happy New Year to you and your family x

  3. Jacqui what a fabulous dress. Love the rivets,studs and lace. I am so sorry that your Christmas Day was not as you planned. This Covid variant is everywhere. Sick of it all now. I am still battling a cough which keeps me awake at night and leaves me wrecked. Six weeks on, so feeling very fed up. Hope the New Year brings better news. xxx

  4. The lace dress looks stunning on you! Wishing you and your family a happy 2022!

  5. I love this very elegant dress, you look fab Jacqui. Sorry to hear that your Christmas plans were scuppered. Damn Covid is everywhere and lateral flow tests are rarer than hens' teeth! I hope you enjoy NYE despite the upheaval.
