I was blessed with a mother who could take a scarf and a couple of cheap bangles and turn an inexpensive outfit into a fashion statement. It was a knack she acquired by watching her aunties; women from the twenties! It’s a knack that has been handed down. We are all women who love our accessories.
Since the weather has taken a turn for the cooler temperatures, we are wearing more layers, jackets and coverings. And a great way to add some fun and excitement to these pieces is with one or all of your brooches!
Finding the perfect plus size top isn’t easy. You have to deal with the shoddy selection in local stores, or compare styles and prices across dozens of online retailers. Either way, it takes some time and patience.
If you’re like me, you have a uniform – a particular type of outfit – that you wear most days.
Yours might be a white shirt and trousers, a wrap dress, or a skirt and jacket. Mine is a tee-shirt and jeans, topped with a blazer. These pieces are wardrobe staples you probably have in your closet.
If you are a woman who follows the blogger, Instagram and Twitter fashionistas of the world, you have probably gained the impression that you need to wear something new and different every single day. Wrong!
There are a variety of reasons this will not work for you, or most people you know. Not the least being lack of space, lack of time and lack of money!
We typically expect autumn to be the season when we pack away our linens and break out more of our traditional comfortable woolies in familiar neutrals, with the occasional bright pink or spring green cashmere thrown in just for fun. We wear them with wool pants, dark pencil skirts or plaids.
Fall is here and it holds new promise. I know that personally I look forward to the last quarter of the year to finish those old New Years Resolutions that may not yet have been checked off. The pending holidays always give me a sense of urgency. What do I need to finish before I begin new projects?
The weather is starting to get cooler in my part of the country and that means fall fashion for most of us! The ankle boot may not be a new trend, but it is definitely one that has stood the test of time and works for any woman who has feet – ha ha!
One of my favorite mantras is, “Life Is Challenging but You Have to Get Dressed.”
When you factor in vertical challenges, that makes it even more difficult. While you may not be able to change the cards you were dealt, the right clothing and accessories can actually help you appear taller than you are.
Summer is full of fun outdoor events. Picnics and lunches. Brunches and garden parties. Casual gatherings that make summer such an exciting, enjoyable season.
