There are days when a t-shirt and jeans just won’t cut it.

After years of planning and waiting, our trip to Scotland is finally here. (It was originally scheduled for the summer of 2020).

I recently ran into a friend at a party who said she had given up on wearing dresses. “I have no waist,” she moaned. “I look like a cardboard box with legs.” Looking at my gorgeous friend, who is in her late 60s, I knew that this was untrue, but I didn’t have time at […]

How To Wear A Cardigan Over 40 (Without Looking Old)

February 28th, 2022 by

I remember reading long ago that Cindy Crawford did not like cardigans, and those words haunted me for years. “Why doesn’t she like cardigans?” I wondered. “They seem so innocent. Does she know something I don’t know?” Turns out the answer was yes. Yes, she does. She knows what I learned a little later in […]

If there’s one item in my Wardrobe Building Series that, without fail, every single woman needs in her wardrobe, I would say this is it. Every single woman would benefit from a fab white (or off-white, ivory, or cream) shirt in her wardrobe. It’s that critical connector that makes the rest of your clothes work […]
