Shoes Every Woman Needs Over 40 for Spring/Summer

April 20th, 2023 by

Just call me the shoe enabler. If you need someone to talk you into the necessity, the almost mandatory-ness of getting 10 new shoes for summer, I’m that friend. That friend with the shoes. The friend who can justify any purchase. But I’m also your fashion friend. And hopefully your trusted virtual stylist. And my […]

How To Wear Boots Over 40

December 12th, 2022 by

I get asked so many times about how to pair boots with outfits, and I think we tend to overcomplicate the subject. I know I do. But here’s the bottom line. There are no rules. Not really. There are a few best practices, and there are lots of preferences, but rules? Not exactly. If it […]

The Boot Report: What’s In, What’s Out

November 17th, 2022 by

The right pair of shoes can add polish and style to an outfit, or it can bring the whole outfit down. The same can be said for boots, and it seems that many of you have questions. What’s in? What’s out? What’s flattering and what’s frumpy? Like everything in fashion, boots have changed pretty dramatically […]

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 […]
