FASHION FIX

This week It’s become more prevalent as to why I’m doing this blog about fashion and style and what I’m hoping to achieve.

After listening and talking to women throughout the week I’ve come to see what issues are affecting women and dressing.

The woman at the post office counter for instance put herself down on three counts within 10 seconds. Whoa slow down .. give your self a break here. Your way to hard on your self have more of a realistic out look.
Yeah she was right about a few things .. her height, there was no getting away from that and she did have some valid issues regarding trouser shapes and her own body type.
She wants to wear all these lovely things she’s seen in magazines but felt she couldn’t

I heard this echoed through out the week from a multitude of women. They thought they couldn’t wear clothes such as jumpsuits because they were too old. NO WAY!! 30;40 old … shit
” So what you gonna do for the next 50 years” ? I asked.
My buttons had been pressed and my mission was to persuade them that it was all about picking the right one !

Yes I agree don’t go getting your self into a lycra tight-fitting cat suit… but there are some fabulous designs out there made for shapely,slim short and tall. The shops have sections for all.
So for the woman in the post office there are ways around these issues . There are clothes out there for you . You don’t have to be stuck with the leggings and jumper look.

To my other friends and their jumpsuit desires I explain further.
It has to be the right fabric like I said you couldn’t have any thing too tight. A soft silk or cotton with great loose silhouettes would work a dream on an “older” woman. Take a look at the Mark Jacobs jumpsuit I posted on feb 15th. This is just dreamy .. there’s no way a woman of all ages couldn’t wear this !!!

You can dress an outfit for day or night up or down. High heels for night-time flats/sandals for the day; accessories such as CORSAGE necklace or belt FOR A WEDDING LOOK… OR A LOOSE DRAPED BELT and flat sandals for holidays… the list goes on and I could explain so many ways to wear it and get good use from one piece.

Don’t give up on yourselves !

We are living longer than ever so there are more years to look glamorous. I think that’s fantastic.
It doesn’t have to be over because you reach a certain age.. you should be blooming. Some women don’t blossom until later on in life!!!

Take advantage of the fact we can look gorgeous for longer!!

I’ve put a fab picture of Catherine Zeta Jones on to show you how cool a woman of age can look. Catherine is 42 this year yet she’s rocking this outfit. Looking stylish and glamorous, yet it just a simple hat and scarf that’s made it. She’s also comfortable in her skin.

 

 

AT THIS AGE YOU SHOULD HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF YOUR SELF. Don’t be afraid of what others THINK or if they APPROVE.

IF YOU WANT IT AND LIKE IT THEN

GET IT ON !!!

GONE SHOPPING:

This last week I’ve come across a few great scarfs.So I thought I’d share them with you.
I adore them for the simple reason they can totally transform an outfit, They can be subtle or fabulously glamorous.Be daring and opt for bold brights or be adventurous in animal prints. They can be expensive but I do think investing in a nice scarf is a winner.
It’s a key piece TO ANY ONES WARDROBE…it can be worn year after year.
There’s also the advantage they keep us warm in our not so warm summers.

You could be wearing a £10 top and make it look £100 with a great scarf. I think the same can be said for belts but we’ll talk about that another day.

I really like the McQueen skull designs this year coming in a variety of pastel colours so so sweet (yet to get my hands on one) also the Louis Vuitton leopard prints are fab but have a huge price tag !! Never mind the few I found range in price but all as equally gorgeous.

There are a few ways to wear the common scarf but that’s up to you and how you like to look!!

Don’t be scared to experiment away from the traditional way of wearing them !!

Buying a designer scarf is a great way of up dating a tired outfit. You can transform a top or jacket by adding a simple scarf. there’s always the added attraction of wearing something designer with out going over board on the spending.

Hope you like the scarfs I’ve chosen
