Modeling for Ruti

October 6, 2022

If you’ve been around here awhile, you might remember several of my Ruti outfits.  I LOVE this designer because her vision is that clothes must be cool, flattering, and practical. A closet full of cool, flattering, and practical pieces is my DREAM wardrobe!

Well, I got to model for Ruti recently and I was so excited!  Seriously, I wanted to take home almost every single outfit!

Side note:  What? Me, model?  At 56? And quite a few pounds over my … umm …. “fighting” weight!?   I really respect that Ruti wants her clothing to be seen on real women with relatable bodies!

This flowy luxe look was just dreamy!

Shop the Look:

Thee skirt/pants were so elegant and comfortable. I also love the luxe washable silk top!

Shop the Look:


How cool is this mix of blue and black denim?  It’s all stretchy too, which makes it all feel amazing on the body!

Shop the Look:


Love the black and white color blocking and the cool scuba fabric.  We all live in athleisure so often now that cool, high-quality athleisure pieces are a must!

Shop the Look:


The coolest, most comfortable pants. I seriously have them on right this moment. Love the quality tee as well.

Shop the Look:

Keep an eye out for reels of me modeling these looks and more on Instagram!  And I will be posting again soon showing off a few pieces that I brought home with me and how I styled them for myself.

ICYMI, here are a few past posts about Ruti: The Fashion Show, Ruti Look at NYFW, My First Ruti Look, and this cute poncho!

Fun & Fashion,

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have our own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!

    How was the washing of Ruti’s clothes. Just bought a poplin Go to Skirt and Washable silk blouse.
    Not into handwashing or ironing.
