A flattering and comfortable fanny pack alternative? HipsSister may just be the best running apparel accessory I’ve purchased in years. Time to throw out the scratchy wristbands/armbands (and their tan lines).

About Thea Wood
Ever thought about breaking fashion rules? Many women, especially as we age, are tired of hearing the plethora of Dos and Don’ts of fashion. That’s why I create style “guides” instead of style “rules” for my clients. The word NEVER is avoided, and I even shy away from the word “should” these days. Below is my […]
For years, one-piece swimsuits made a strong fashion statement: “Don’t look at me!” One-piece swimsuits came in an array of dark, solid colors and unremarkably conservative cuts designed to avoid attracting attention.

In the 1990s, I swore I swore off stockings as a result of my employer’s dress code that required women to wear stockings, pantyhose, tights, etc. if wearing a skirt. When it’s 90 degrees, 80% humidity, and you walk 4 blocks from the Metro, this conservative accessory became a torture device. And we didn’t have cool print stockings back […]
Fashion, technology & women’s rights are intertwined today– just like they were in the 1920s. Trends in wardrobe, hair, and makeup are a visual sign of the times that speak to women’s current roles and values plus technological advances throughout the decades. A few historically significant trends come to mind: 1920s: Flapper dresses that embraced physical freedom through […]
I can’t believe the 2nd Annual SheSpark Holiday Gift Guide, featuring the best holiday gift ideas for women over 40, is LIVE. The 2015 guide was the very first issue of SheSpark that was met with such positive feedback that Audrey Stefanik and I decided to start a monthly digital magazine. The birth of SheSpark! READ IT […]
How do you transform your workplace LBD (little black dress) to your office holiday party LBD? Many of us feel like we’ve recycled style tips too many times and aren’t in the market to buy a cocktail dress that collects dust in the closet.
