I don’t know about you, but, I love the fact that older men and women are starting to become icons of style around the world. For example, you probably know that Jessica Lange (age 67) was chosen as the face of Marc Jacobs and that Sarah Wiley (age 68) was featured in Stella Magazine. But, did you know that older men are also taking the fashion world by storm?
It’s amazing to me that, even when someone takes a positive aging stance, their views are framed as “anti-aging secrets.” This was exactly what I thought this morning as I watched an interview with Jane Seymour on the show This Morning.
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!
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?
I know, it sounds very negative to write about the 10 biggest mistakes, as opposed to writing about the best makeup tips!
But for me, the key to the best makeup at any age, is to follow the “Less is More” rule. This is especially true once we are over 50.
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!
