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 […]

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.

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.

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 […]
It’s no secret that I don’t have the body I had 20 years ago. My abs were my best asset, and I loved to show them off in crop tops and low-rise jeans. Pregnancy, a hysterectomy, and age changed the landscape– so to speak. These changes forced me to re-evaluate my sexy over 40 style strategies […]
Who vacations in NYC in January? ME! My honey surprised me with a birthday weekend trip (he’s the best). And what a trip it was. We hit fancy French restaurants, visited the Jacqueline de Ribes couture dress exhibit, and strolled through Central Park as kids sledded past screaming joyfully. I’ve lived in Texas weather so long (it’s 70 […]
