I’m starting a new series on basics for wardrobe building and how can I not start with the best and most fundamental, the Little Black Dress? One reason so many of us buy a lot but still look in our closet and claim we have nothing to wear is because we focus on the bright shiny new stuff and forget the basics. At least that’s been my issue in the past, a wardrobe that’s all spice no substance. Though some women do seem to have the opposite problem and could stand to add a little pizazz!
Let me start with a cute story. Many years ago, my father called me one day and said that in the doctor’s waiting room he read in a magazine that every woman needed a Little Black Dress and he wanted to make sure I had one! Haha …. Daddy! (Damn, I miss him and my mom so much!)
Does it bother you when someone tells you that you look good “for your age” …? It’s never bothered me that much, but a recent survey came out that shows that most women would rather not have a compliment at all, rather than have “for your age” tacked to the end of one. I think it’s a good place to start discussing how we talk about aging in our culture!
This post was sponsored by RoC skincare. I agreed to do it because I wanted to get my readers’ opinion about the language we use to discuss aging. Also, I respect that RoC doesn’t promise miracles for a fortune, but rather just healthy sensible skincare that leaves skin brighter and smoother.
A sweet summer dress … there’s nothing better. I love wearing a pretty dress in the summertime, don’t you? But sometimes over 40 it’s harder to find the perfect one that will give you coverage where you want it.
