8 Steps To Confident Style

October 7th, 2021 by

Maybe it’s old age ;), but I’ve gone from being a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl to one who sees the value in systems and routines. Don’t yawn. I promise I won’t tell you to get up at 5 a.m. It’s just that for the better part of my life I’ve improvised and reinvented the wheel […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: Personal Style + Black Blazer+ Black Pants

January 4th, 2018 by

While you guys have been out there working your colorful coats and puffer vests and leather leggings, I have been home. In pajamas. With vacation coming to a close, two sniffly girls and the coldest weather of the season, I hibernated. And it has been glorious. Tomorrow, however, I will wear clothes. And shoes. And […]

Wear This To Look Old

June 5th, 2017 by

I have been forced to borrow reading glasses from friends twice in the last few days. Twice. Once to read the minuscule words on a restaurant menu, and another time to read the instruction manual on a piece of clothing. (Yes, some clothes require assembly, and like all instruction manuals, the writing is tiny). Crazy, right, […]

How to Be Fashionable (Not Frumpy!)

April 12th, 2017 by

The frumps are for real, folks, and they’re contagious. Let’s put an end to them, shall we? It’s so much easier then you might think. Trust me. We can do this. It’s as simple as choosing one thing over another. The cute top over the frumpy top. The cute shoes over the frumpy shoes. The […]

5 Ways to Feel More Confident

April 10th, 2017 by

When you’re raising girls, you think about confidence a lot. Sometimes, I get discouraged by the fact that some kids are born oozing it, while others are perpetually insecure. Where does this elusive thing called confidence come from, and how can we have more of it? I believe that true confidence comes from knowing that we are […]

How Not To Dress Old, Part 2: Old Clothes vs. Young Clothes

August 23rd, 2015 by

I’ll admit it. Clothes can be confusing. Stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one before. When I was 12, back in the 1980s (yes, I am that old… thanks for not noticing!) I found a plaid power suit in Vogue and begged my immensely talented mom to make one for my 50-pound […]

pantyhose

  I’m continuing Fashion Questions and Condundrums Week (I said it again. Co-nun-drum), because, frankly, last week got away from me and questions kept pouring in. Okay, maybe not pouring. More like trickling. But still, I got questions. And some of them I get over and over again. So this week I am going to […]

Am I Too Old To Wear That?

April 22nd, 2015 by

I am 40-something, and I have long hair. Not longish. Long. As in halfway down my back long. And I have no apologies. This is how I like to wear it, and I’ll wear it this way until I change my mind. There is a lot of truth to the adage that you are only […]

How Not to Dress Old

March 18th, 2015 by

When you were 20, you could wear whatever you wanted. Whatever. You. Wanted. You could wear 23 trends all at the same time, although I don’t necessarily recommend it. When you were 30, you could wear 12 trends at the same time, and pretty much whatever you wanted, with a couple of exceptions. Belly tops […]
