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 […]
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 […]
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. We’ve also witnessed the backlash of trying “hot” editorial trends that come off as too risqué […]

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 […]

Over-40 women get fewer roles, have fewer scripted lines, and are often bypassed for a younger actress when casting a love interest for a middle-aged actor. Behind […]
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 […]
Australian fashion designer Faye Brown started her clothing line MOTTO in 1985 and has styled thousands of women over the years. As part of the SheSpark August 2016 interview series on sex appeal and aging, Faye answered our questions as not only an industry veteran, but also a breast cancer survivor. Here’s what she had […]
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 […]
