2017 Summer Fashion Trends: Black & White Done Right

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.

Fanny Pack Alternative: Thank God For HipsSister

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). No more tying my car key to my shoes, sneaking my phone into my underwear band, or struggling to change my music while keeping pace. […]

One-Piece Swimsuits – Trending Designs

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.

How To Wear Print Stockings : Style Tips for Modern Over-40 Women

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 […]
