Fashion forward...or not?

I have never really, expressed or exercised my opinion here on the blog about fashion....it seems such a personal, individual thing for most women, but it seems so many if us are judged by how we look or what we wear....Annie Liebovitz, a preeminent photographer of our time is taking a different approach to her portrayal of women....

" I didn't want to let women down...One of the stereotypes I see breaking down is the idea of aging and older women not being beautiful..."

It's ironic, how as time marches on and we see inevitable changes in our faces and bodies, in my mind, I still think like I did in my thirties! My list of to do things hasn't shortened, and I still have so many dreams to fulfill, both personally and professionally....but do younger women view us as the great contributors that we see ourselves as....

I find that in my particular field of wedding design, the majority of my clients are much younger than I am, so it is very important to me to stay current, and engaged in all aspects, so that these young women can view us as peers, or perhaps even better as mentors!

So of course, the best way to do this is keep current in how we look....

My fashion philosophy is the same as my approach to design, simple, classic and timeless...

What you will find me in during cool weather, during the day....I live in tights, wool sweaters and boots...

If I have a meeting or dinner in the evening, this is my outfit of choice...

Adding a beautiful blouse, or dressy jacket for more formal occasions...

....as dressy as it gets for me...

My hair cut...

Shoes with a sensible heel...

And some bling...for fun!

....and a bag to set everything off! There you have it......how I try to stay on top of things in this crazy fashion world!!

I just had to include this photo from my Pinterest board...I love it! The freedom that comes with age...devil may care, je ne sais quoi, thumbing your nose to fashion, convention and stereo types...I bet it feels good!
