Holiday Style for Women Over 50

November 20, 2019

I love dressing for the holidays! It’s the perfect time to be a little extra and let yourself sparkle, shine, and shimmer!  It’s fun to buy a special dress for a fancy party. But it’s also nice to pick out something new to mix in with what you already have.  I’ve tried to give you a variety of choices in this post and I picked only things I felt like I would actually wear!

In this outfit below, I mixed a new red leopard skirt with a velvet Tadashi Shoji jacket that I was a lucky thrift store find.  I added my red suede boots that I had bought for fashion week.  I kept the rest simple with a plain black leather clutch and faux diamond earrings.  I wanted to show that a few new things mixed with what you already had might be just the ticket to a fabulous festive outfit.  And isn’t it nice to add pieces to your wardrobe that you’ll actually wear again?

Versatile Sweater Set

Are you a fan of the classic twinset, a cardigan with a matching shell?  First appearing in the 1930’s, the twin set (or sweater set) is now a classic hard-working basic.

Loving the outfit I’m wearing here … so many of my favorites in one outfit: a cool edgy and comfortable sweatshirt, an A-line midi skirt (tie-dye to boot!) … speaking of boots, my new Ash combat boots … a big tote and add a floppy hat and it’s a fabulous chic and wearable fall outfit!

Ruti Fashion Show

October 29, 2019

My readers know I’m a big fan of the designer Ruti, so I was super excited when I got to go to the runway show recently and actually got to meet the designer herself!

With Ruti Zisser at Ruti Headquarters in Belmont, California.

Ruti stole my sartorial heart with her inspirational yet wearable clothing, just right for the grown up cool girl.

Anne Klein Ventura x Zappos

October 24, 2019

Thanks to Zappos for sponsoring this post.

I’ve been concentrating on filling my closet with everyday shoes, but sometimes a fashionista just needs something sexy and fabulous on her feet!  I think these beautiful Anne Klein Ventura platform sandals are just the thing, don’t you?!

Though of course I won’t be wearing these fab heels for a day of teaching on my feet.  However, at 4 1/4 sexy inches, they are surprisingly comfortable, thanks to dual foam layers for cushion and shock absorption, as well as a durable rubber sole with superior traction!  I will be wearing them on a dance floor soon for sure!
