The Fab 40s are rocking menswear-inspired looks this month!
Isn’t there something cool and interesting about the blending of gender traditions?
If you’re new to the party, The Fab 40s are a group of 40-something style bloggers who take on a trend each month and make it their own.
This month Sheela made the choice of the theme and … as a new feature … the choice of a guest blogger as well! (Keep reading to see who is joining us this month ….)
