April 14th, 2022 by

I’m switching things up a little this time and giving you the mic. Not literally, of course, because my mic is pretty heavy, but figuratively. I’m letting you pick the topics. I’ll be answering more of your questions in future episodes of Nada Saves Style, so send me your style conundrums to [email protected] and I’ll […]

How To Dress A Full Bust Over 40

March 14th, 2022 by

Sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees. Or the body type for the curves. Let me explain. When we talk about body shape, we are talking about the body silhouette or the outline. But you can’t blindly follow the guidelines for your body shape while ignoring other key elements of your body, like […]

Nada Saves Style | I Fix Your Outfits

March 7th, 2022 by

Styling is my superpower. It’s my only superpower, just in case anyone accuses me of bragging. I mean, I can’t do push-ups or dance or sew or craft. I’m an average cook and a mediocre homemaker. But I can style. And write about style. It’s always been my thing. Maybe I should get a cape… […]

How to Style a Sweater Over 50 | Warm Winter Outfits + Outfit Formulas

February 24th, 2022 by

I know you’re getting tired of your winter clothes. Or is it just me. It’s the end of February and I’m just totally over winter. And I live in Florida. We have only had it for about a week. 🙂 I was especially getting bored of sweaters. Yawn.  Sometimes, a chunky knit sweater can seem […]

Wardrobe Styling With A Friend | Pear Shape | Tall

February 20th, 2022 by

Sometimes, we just feel stuck in our style. We buy and buy and still feel like we have nothing to show for it and so we end up wearing the same pieces in the same ways, while other pieces, which once held so much promise, languish in our wardrobe, unloved. It’s really kind of sad […]

Best Outfits for a Pear Shape | Style Dial Orange

February 14th, 2022 by

Here I go again, referring to a body type as a fruit. In The Style Dial body type system, we use colors and not inanimate objects, but since so much of the world is familiar with the term pear-shaped, I’m throwing it in here for clarity’s sake. But just to be clear: You are not […]

How Long Should Your Clothes Be?

January 24th, 2022 by

Body type is only half the puzzle. I know I know that I talk about it all the time, and that’s because knowing your body type is critical, but it’s still not going to yield flattering results in your outfits unless your clothes also FIT. And that’s where the Fashion Fit Formula comes in. If […]

Body Shapes and What to Wear | Proportions

January 17th, 2022 by

I love getting a chance to reconnect with a young friend. (I’ve stopped using the expression “old” friend because none of my friends are old). Stephanie and I have known each other since middle school, went to the same college, and later ended up back home, reconnecting through a nonprofit where we both served as […]

Body Shape Series: Petite Pear

January 10th, 2022 by

I know you all like looking at me and stuff, but just in case you ever get tired of just seeing me, all the time, wearing the clothes on my specific body, I thought I’d mix it up a little for 2022. This video featuring the beautiful Ashley is the first in a series on […]

5 Wardrobe Staples & How To Wear Them

January 5th, 2022 by

I am not a stapley person. I know you know this about me, if you’ve been following me for any amount of time, but I resisted staples for years, fearing that they were a slippery slope to a boring basic wardrobe. I felt like staples were something the fashion industry told us all we had […]
