How To Pick Flattering Shoes For An Outfit

September 12th, 2022 by

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’m a small-scale person. My mom always called me a “sample.” And because of my scale, wearing oversized clothing and accessories can sometimes be a challenge. Perhaps you’ve experienced similar challenges. We all have natural characteristics that we have to take into account when getting dressed. Outfits also […]

Stylish Comfortable Flats | Ageless Style 23

November 8th, 2021 by

Why should you take flat-shoe advice from a heel lover? Good question, actually. I don’t have a great answer, except for this. I love shoes. I know shoes. I just get shoes, you know. The way that some people get football or numbers. Neither of which I get, but I digress. So long story short, […]

How to Pick the Right Shoes for Your Outfit

August 12th, 2021 by

I recently read a fluffy novel where the heroine started every day by picking her shoes. She planned her outfits from the bottom up. She’s pretty much my soul sister. Shoes can make or break an outfit, so it makes sense to start there. Plus, shoes are my favorite. 🙂 And while there are some […]

Shoe Mistakes That Age You

June 17th, 2021 by

If there’s any topic that I feel qualified to speak about, it’s shoes. And like many illustrations in life, it is best made through a story. When Kevin and I got married, we took two pictures with his fraternity brothers. One showed my amazing bejeweled Sergio Rossi mules. The others showed his friends. Which one […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: How to Accessorize

January 29th, 2018 by

When we were little, we were fearless. We piled on ropes and ropes of pearls and then added plastic shoes and a tiara and felt fabulous. We didn’t worry about looking a little, well, much. We didn’t second-guess our accessory choices before removing one item and muttering: “Less is more.” Because less was not more. […]

4 Spring Shoe Trends for Every Budget

March 13th, 2017 by

At one time, people were giving me shoe tchotchkes. (Yes, that’s how you spell that word. I looked it up!) Seriously. Little ceramic shoes and shoe place card holders and shoe coasters and shoe books and shoe soaps and even a shoe accent table. That’s when I knew I had a problem. Seriously, though, I […]

7 Simple (Affordable) Fall Fashion Updates

October 4th, 2016 by

I am not going to stop you from shopping. I’ll leave that to your accountant. Or your husband. Or that responsible shopping friend who always wonders, aloud, if you really need another pair of jeans. (Why yes. Yes, you do). My job is to show you the new stuff. And not all of it, either. That’s […]

How to Rock a Transitional Wardrobe

June 23rd, 2016 by

Okay, I’ll admit it. Transitional Wardrobes, and, frankly, capsule wardrobes of any kind can be a little, yawn…. especially for creative, spontaneous, former-impulse-shoppers like myself. If, like me, you’ve never met a frill or a bauble you didn’t adore, then the idea of the same 28 outfit combinations on repeat for 6 months can sound like […]

Best Boots for Fall (for Every Budget)

October 25th, 2015 by

I know I am in Florida, but why is it soooo hot in October. Why? I am over it. I want fall! Not serious, full-fledged, Midwestern-style fall, with parkas and babies bundled up in snowsuits. I’m not crazy. I know that I am extraordinarily wimpy and thin skinned. But how I long for it to feel […]
