What Are Your Favorite Fashion Accessories?

One of the biggest myths about women over 60 is that we no longer care about how we look. What nonsense.

In addition, most of us are always on the lookout for clothes that look and feel amazing. Today, I’d like to ask you about your favorite fashion accessories. I will also share some tips for choosing and wearing beautiful brooches. Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat. And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend about us today.
