Summer Fashion color trends are tough for me. I have olive skin, dark brown hair, and hazel eyes. My optimal palette involves rich jewel and earth tones that you see in Fall runway collections but rarely at a July pool party. Pistachio, bubble gum pink, and sky blue tend to make me look muddy (like I […]
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. Yet swimsuits of any kind (bikini, tankini, or one-piece) really leave little to the imagination, so the idea of hiding in one is a […]
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 […]
Is an instant facelift possible? The thought of getting a real facelift (or botox or fillers) scares the daylights out of this over-40 woman. Perhaps it’s from binge-watching too many episodes of Botched. I would surely be the person who has an adverse, disfiguring reaction to any anti-aging procedure, landing me on Dr. Nassif and Dr. DuBrow’s surgical […]

Buy those that work best for your unique signature style! Velvet jackets. Choose rich colors and match with a pencil skirt or […]
Yours truly just got back from Greece– three days in Athens and a 7-day cruise through the islands with two stops in Turkey. Here are some Greece packing tips and lookbooks to shop for your trip/cruise. ATHENS Thieves are attracted to tourists like bees to honey in Athens. Three of the five adults in my party were victims […]
We’re the generation that grew up on MTV, raised ourselves as latchkey kids in an era of Material Girl consumption, and turned our disaffected reputation into one of entrepreneurship and the strongest work ethic since World War II. In fact, sociologist Mike Males dubbed us “The True ‘Great Generation’” for surviving and reversing negative […]
Every issue of SheSpark touches on topics that concern women over 40. And sex appeal is no exception. We all want to look and feel desirable to our mates, partners, dates, sometimes even strangers. What’s a middle-aged woman to do? SheSpark’s August issue offers straight talk from a starlet, a scholar, and a stripper (all […]
As part of the interview series for SheSpark’s August issue #KeepingItHot, I talked with author and speaker Susan Bremer O’Neill. At age 35, she left her career as a scientist and started stripping. The experience changed her life for the better and gave her a unique perspective on sex appeal at any age. Here is the full […]
