10th Commandment: October 21

Oct 21, 2013

Sometimes, I title these posts and think, “My goodness, where has 2013 gone?”

Today, it’s black blazers that aren’t meant to be worn as part of a suit.  I think every woman should have a non-suit blazer.  If you wear your suit jacket too much (esp. if the bottom isn’t getting much wear), you’ll age it prematurely.  It’s good to have a stylish basic that can pick up the slack.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants.
