Friday Night Links: Makeover Edition

Post image for Friday Night Links:  Makeover Edition

Do you need a makeover?  Should you replace your wardrobe?  My wife says I am stuck in the sixties and she is not referring to my age.  She was referring to the 1960s.  Yes, I still wear button down shirts, polo shirts, tee shirts, jeans, khakis and navy blazers.  I still think that the 1960s was the best time for music, fashion and student involvement. 

Do I really have a problem?  Ralph Lauren (Polo) and Tommy Hilfiger have made an industry out of sixties fashion.  So I am not out of step, but I think she is referring to the condition of my sixties fashion.  No I do not still have my clothes from the sixties, although some of it may be valuable if I did.  I am slowly replacing my wardrobe as my clothes wear out, but we can disagree on the definition of worn out.  I find that my clothes are most comfortable when it is just before it is worn out.

Some of you may think I took frugality to the extreme, but I am just set in my ways.  Maybe I am so fashion forward that I am ahead of the curve.  I think I am pretty good at finding some of the best articles of the week too. This makes a good segue to today’s picks for Friday Night Links.

The following articles caught my attention:

The Extra Money Blog - Insider Information Guaranteed to Maximize Your Google Adsense Revenue

The Financial Blogger  - Investing Sucks, Blogging Rules

The Millionaire Nurse Blog - 5 Things You Can Do With Your Tax Refund!

The Passive Income Earner - How To Transfer Shares To Your Kids

The Simple Dollar  - Take Advantage of Hand-Me-Downs


The selection of blogs is up to the committee of one established by krantcents as a representative of the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers. That committee can be influenced by meaningful comments, signing up for my RSS feeds, backlinks, links, trackbacks, Facebook Likes, Twitter, Re-tweets, Digg, StumbleUpon, delicio, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks and other social media. If you plan on creating a single purpose political action committee (PAC) to buy advertising on my blog to solely influence the committee, please go ahead! Please understand it will not influence the results.

I read more than five hundred (500) articles a week and I highlight just five (5) in my Friday Night Links.  Sixties fashion is still cool!  Thank you for joining me and reading Friday Night Links Makeover Edition.  Do you need a makeover?

I’m more an early 70′s child, though my older siblings were ’60′s folk children, so I got a good bit of the sixties culture through osmosis. I like khaki’s, polo’s, jeans too, though.
Thanks for choosing The Millionaire Nurse in your honorable roundup!

Obviously you are a little younger! The sixties style (as I describe it) has become the new conservative style. There are some variations, but it has held up. Weren’t the 70s the years of double knit and polyester? You’re welcome.

I’m set in my ways, too. What’s wrong with being comfortable? However, if you have many face to face meetings, you may need to spruce up a bit. Only one chance at the first impression!

I agree, but my day to day wardrobe is very casual (jeans/shirt). Remember, I am a teacher. When necessary, I put on the suit or dress up. After all these years, it seems it is more of an effort.

I always joke with the bf, telling him “1990 Philippines called, they want their clothes back”. He ignores me and continues to wear the same ugly clothes. I love him for that, and because he saves us a lot of money wearing the same clothes until they’re thread bare (then I toss them and say the washer ate them…shh don’t tell).

You mean the washer doesn’t eat it! :) I think my wife does that occasionally too.

I do agree with you. My husband always love wearing the worn out clothes because he feels comfortably with them, so it’s a bit hard to do the makeover to his wardrobe. I have to agree with his reasons to save the money and accept his own ways of fashion he loves. Thanks for sharing good post.

Makeovers are difficult because most people do not change. I suggest that you replace one worn out article at a time. There are clothes, I use only for working out (at home) or painting.
