I was reading a blog post about warm winter coats, and by the end of it I was amazed that all they talked about was puffer coats! What about faux fur? I believe fur is just as warm, and looks better while we’re at it! Continue Reading
One day at work, I heard some women talking about leopard prints. They said, “I couldn’t possibly wear leopard prints.” They all agreed that they didn’t own any leopard prints and never would, that they were not the type to wear that.

This is the door to Morocco. Someday, I would like to visit exotic places. But for the time being, I decided to make an e-visit to Morocco.

I used to try to fit in, as the occasion called for. At a job long ago, a co-worker commented on the golden sun pendant on an ivory cord that I was wearing with my business dress. He sneered that it showed I was a hippie. I was mortified and afraid to show my true self at work for many years.
Now, I feel free to be me. I guess that’s what happens as you get older. You get wiser.
As women age, they commonly begin to think they can no longer wear certain things…. I disagree with blanket statements that prohibit women of a certain age from wearing what they want. As long as the clothes look good on the body you have, I encourage you to be free.
This blog is for all ages and all styles. Wear what you love, and be yourself. Then, whatever your age, look in the mirror and decide if it works. That is the art of expressing your true self!
