IT’S THE HOLIDAYS AND TIME FOR GIVING
One of the BEST organizations 1s Houston’s:
(Lindsey – Volunteer Coordinator)
Here, the goal is the community giving back and empowering women; in order for them to succeed.
I want to mention this great organization because when you speak of giving back, this is a great cause.
So I hope anyone who wants to help get out there!

It’s also the time of year to be festive. Let’s get to another new trend.
My style for December 2016 is bell sleeves. So fun especially at Christmas (get it – bells!)
I found this amazing blouse at Belk. I thought it was super cute.
Here’s a closer look. I love this sleeve so girly and feminine.
It also has a peplum bottom, definitely flattering on everyone.
I’m also showing some other bell-sleeve outfits especially for the holidays.
Just some ideas!
HAVE A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY SEASON FROM:
Happy Shopping !!
It is finally that time of year when summer meets autumn. I love the fall. The colors are bright. The days are still warm but, the nights are beginning to cool down.
It’s a great time to take some summer fashions into fall. Everywhere you look styles are changing. But who wants to buy everything new?
While volunteering last week at Dress For Success I decided to try out a trend I have been noticing.
Wearing a crop top over a shirt.
All summer I saw cropped styled tops. I am so too old for them but…. I can always find a way!
What do you think?
It shows a new fun look. I got a lot of compliments from the other ladies. I’d say it was a good idea.
Here’s some more examples I found surfing through the fashion mags and on-line sites.
Now the crop top I am wearing is a type of corset top. Spandex and cotton.
Ready for this? I bought it at Forever 21 and it was only $5.00. I also bought this one (again $5).
It’s a knit material. Lightweight and comfortable.
It’s also a fun way to add to a plain white button-down shirt.

The versatility of this is how many combinations: slacks, jeans, and even skirts you can mix.
So whether you are going to work, going out for fun, on a date, or with friends you can style this trend.
Even us 40, 50, & 60’s group can.
Hey Fashion Ladies,
I’m a sucker for trendy and a bit edgy fashion. I think it brings a lot of fun into any outfit.
My new obsession is a cropped length jean with no hem, just frayed on the bottom. Nothing too extreme. I also love some fray in the legs but again not too bare. I have seen several styles for example:
Some of the jeans are too torn, especially in the knee area.
But some styles are so fun. They are not too torn, just slightly. I also believe they look great with sneakers or you can dress them up with heels. Either way I think the look is workable. Here are two examples I have seen:
I think even at my age I can definitely pull this off!
So, here is how I styled the frayed jean look for a casual look.
Jeans – Zara Shoes – Adidas
Or a little dressed up
Shoes – Nine West (Older style)
Either way I think it looks great.
See you next time.
Hi, remember back in Junior & High School ( this is for us baby boomers) there was a actually a dress code that did not allow girls to wear pants to school. Maybe not all schools but definitely mine in the Northeast. A common practice in the winter season was walking to school with a pair of pants under a dress or skirt. What a drag that was because once you got to school you would have to change. But at the same time warmth was a priority.
Who thought this combination could become a fashion trend? Well it did.
I saw this in a recent posting and thought how cute!
It definitely looks different than I remember!!
Also, shorter length dresses and skirts are back but, I believe I’m too old to wear one. I set out to put a similar look together.
I decided not to add the coat and hat (let’s make it simple.)
So after some changes I went with this.
Jeans – Gap Dress – H&M Shoes – Nine West (similar)
What do you think?
Jeans are always a classic so I added this Mini dress from H&M (which is now on sale).
It’s mixing two styles to create a cool different look. I added the low heel pumps to look more modern. You could substitute for wedge heels.
Some could wear the dress alone, I just chose not to. I like the look. It works for in-between weather especially with Spring on the way!
Look outside the box
Keep with transitional pieces
Have fun with it
