It’s looking like we are slowly but carefully reentering the real world after months of being safely tucked away at home. Have you been wearing jeans or sweatpants most of the days these past months? Or have you continued with your normal routine dressing as if you had somewhere to go? Either way, you must at least be somewhat excited to break up your homebound routine. Fortunately it is summer, a really fun time to dress, both casually and more formally.

My best friend Judy, 66, decided to get married. She and her husband, Marvin tied the knot just before Los Angeles was ordered to go in to quarantine in mid March.  People have asked me why she would get married so "late" in life? I'll tell you why. Because she wanted to feel fully committed to her significant other, and I applaud her for that. Also 66 is not "late in life", by the way Judy's dress is perfect for a Mid-March small wedding outside held in San Diego. Up close it almost looks like a brocade. Judy and I have been the dearest of friends since we were 10. We have a 50 year fr ..read more

It's always a quandry on what to wear on New Year's Eve, and for reason the year 2020 needed something special. If you are not someone who goes for the glitz, you can do subtle with a flair.  This skirt is gold lame and the  belt is also gold. You can't really tell in the photo, but the heart shaped neckline and pearls, this would be great if you are going out to dinner and a nice place. If you want to spice it up a little bit, you can add some statement earrings with a splashier gold jacket and a vintage gold purse.  This is more for a fancier restaurant where you know that ev ..read more

When I was invited to stay at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Huntington Beach, Ca. over Thanksgiving weekend, I was so excited. Living in Los Angeles, it is the perfect place for a  staycation. As perfect as I thought it would be, the stay there exceeded anything I could have ever imagined.  Not only is it literally across the street from the beach, but the hotel is really a resort that is not only gorgeous, but has so many really fun things to do. That is the beach behind me in the photo below. The rooms are so spacious and luxurious. We had a suite that was as pretty as any hotel I ha ..read more

It all started in 2007 when Smita Vassant was in her 40's and won the title "Mrs. Asia USA Winning this contest gave Smita so much confidence she decided to "jump in" to the world of beauty and fashion, which she continues to do today Smita has always loved fashion growing up in India.

"Virgil Abloh’s Off-White show saw a diverse cast, including older models like Axelle Doue.

Christian Siriano Makes Fashion for Everyone, Even Over Fifty, in his Spring/Summer 2020 Collection
Fashion Over Fifty

If there is anyone who has been a pioneer in bringing Diversity to the runway, it is none other than Christian Siriano. He was the first designer to put a model over a size 0-2 on the runway. Once Christian broke through the unwritten rule that models must be stick thin, other Designers have followed suit. Most women Over Fifty have experienced changes in their bodies and are no longer as thin as they once were. Hence, it is hard for this demographic to relate to most of the fashions at any of the fashion weeks. Christian is not afraid to make his curvier models look sexy, either. What a break ..read more
