10 Things We Should Stop Wearing Over 50

June 13th, 2024 by

Many “stop wearing” lists for women over 50 mention the cute stuff, the sassy stuff. The stuff we should NO LONGER (according to the writer) be wearing. This is kind of the opposite. This is the stuff that we should NEVER START wearing to begin with. Most of these items are aimed at women of […]

Pants Problems Over 50

June 10th, 2024 by

Little known fact: Did you know that free shipping & free returns was invented because of pants? No? That’s because I made it up. But it totally should have been! Pants are a problem for every woman of every size, height, and body type, which is why I always encourage my clients to order a […]

The New Rules of Dressing Our Age

May 27th, 2024 by

Something occurred to me for the very first time when I was researching this post. The old rules about how to “dress your age” are old. Crazy, right? I know it might not see revolutionary to you, but when you really think about it, the only constant in fashion is change. So why would rules […]

Things I NEVER Thought Would Come Back In Style

May 23rd, 2024 by

Never say never. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the 30+ years that I’ve been a style journalist and fashion editor, it’s that even the craziest, frumpiest, silliest and most over-the-top trends eventually come back into style. In recent years, we’ve seen parachute pants and scrunchies and neon colors resurface, if only briefly, as […]

The Best & Worst From Your Favorite Stores

May 20th, 2024 by

Next time you go shopping, just pretend you have me, your trusty stylist and fashion friend, along for the ride. (I have had the opportunity to go real life in person shopping with a few of you and it has been the absolute BEST). Much as I would love that, since I can’t be there […]

10 Things That Are Killing Your Style

May 16th, 2024 by

I hate it when clothes and accessories pretend to be cute and then secretly stab your style in the back. They’re like fake friends. Not to be dramatic but, it really makes me mad. Just don’t sell these things to us and call them cute. Just don’t masquerade ugly, style-slaying accessories as cute, when they’re […]

Spring Accessories That Make Every Outfit Cuter Over 40

May 9th, 2024 by

If you’ve heard me say you need a straw bag and espadrilles one too many times, you have my apologies, but I can’t in good conscience leave them off a list of spring accessories. They are joined, however, by a bunch of other versatile, chic and outfit-making accessories that are not espadrilles and straw bags. […]

Spring Essentials You Will Wear On Repeat

May 6th, 2024 by

I hear from some of you that the most basic-basics don’t get worn all that often. Maybe you’re over the regular reminders to buy a tee shirt or the most basic of pants, and find that you never reach for those items because they are, well, boring. Instead, you want to find essentials that are […]

The Most Glamorous Bathing Suits For Women Over 40

May 2nd, 2024 by

Have you ever noticed how, somewhere along the way, we were all sold the message that being “low maintenance” makes us better and cooler somehow? Like, the less time and care and attention we put into taking care of ourselves, the more laid back and chill and unintimidating we became. The prevailing style, for so […]
