Ever Since Beaute Laboutin, by Christian Laboutin, released his new lipstick a few years back, I have been a huge fan. The colors are rich and lush, and the cases in which they come are elegant.. The minute I received it, I started designing how I wanted the post to look. It needed to be sophisticated and reminiscent of opulent days because the case is so opulent. I stayed up until 2 am moving everything in my bathroom around. This was one of the setups. I really wanted to use this one, but I thought maybe it is too busy. As a woman Over Fifty, it really needed to be elegant.
Ultimately, however, I chose the one below. I think it is simpler and makes an elegant statement. As a women Over fifty, it seems to me that the younger generations are not intrigued with crystal like Baccarat or ceramics like Limoges. It is very sad to me because I would hate to see these historic arts die out. Because I love these arts, I designed it to highlight the artisanship of the crystal perfume bottle and the lipstick case. The case in itself is a period piece created in an Arte Deco style. it is shaped like a talisman or amulet, and the cap has intricate detailing in the Arte Deco style.
The lipstick and its case also inspired me to find my tuxedo jacket and shirt!! A lipstick by Christian Labouin’s Beaute Laboutin calls for nothing less.. This is an outtake where my dog wanted to photobomb the picture. He is a black and white Cocker Spaniel, so he matched perfectly with the tux, but I couldn’t figure a way how to include him!! Darn.
One post to feature this beautiful lipstick by Beate Laboutin, was not going to be enough. So I decided to make it like a story for Instagram. I decided on 4 photos; one of the perfume tray; one of me putting it on; another of me against a white, black and red painting, closeup; and lastly a full scene shot of me and the black white and red painting. Here I am obviously applying it.
To demonstrate the versatility of this object d’art, I am wearing it also as a necklace, It comes with a sheer rope necklace just for that purpose. This way, you never have to go searching for your lipstick at the bottom of your purse. In this closeup, you can see how lush the lipstick is. The color is very rich and it surprisingly lasted most of the night.
Finally, since this Beaute Laboutin lipstick inspired my artistic creativity, here is the full shot of the background, which blends perfectly with the tuxedo, red lipstick, and black amulet around my neck. All in all, this was such a fun project. I think I am an old soul from the renaissance period because pieces like this Beaute Laboutin made me want to go out and shoot against an Arte Deco background. Except, that is hard to find!! I had so much fun putting this together. I want to thank Christian Laboutin’s Beaute Laboutin for giving me this over the top fun opportunity.
Day or Night, this stunning Lafayette 148NY Classic black suit will take anyone anywhere. Thank goodness suit dressing is back in style. There is nothing classier than a well made suit with the right blouse and great accessories. This black two piece black suit and beautiful off-white shirt of a luxurious crepe material, will take you anywhere, any season. With simple black boots and a lapel pin, this look can take you from a luncheon, to work, to evening. The shorter pants add a youthful edge to this classic look which I love. Here, I am wearing the black pants with black boots from Zara.
If you know my style, less is more. Many of Lafayette 148’s pieces make such beautiful and elegant basics. Every painter needs a beautiful canvas upon which to work. This suit provides that gorgeous canvas. Below I am adding more color for a more whimsical feel. Pops of different colors make a statement no matter what season.
For a bit of an edgier look, I paired the ensemble with short red boots. I wore this in downtown Los Angeles one night while we were walking to the trendy “young” hangout, Bottega Louie’s. We couldn’t believe how many complements I got on the way there. However, they were from young people, no older than 30. Heck who doesn’t want to feel like they are still “hip”? I thoroughly enjoyed the attention and that I could get complements from the younger generation.
For a bit more of a “mature look” I wore the slacks with kitten heels from Beverly Feldman, made in Spain. With this wonderful canvas you can add just about any accessory and really have fun!!
Which do you prefer. The kitten heel or the red boot?
The jewel sleeves on this ensemble are fabulous. This style with the self-tying sleeves gives the look an unexpected bit of charm.The shorter sleeve permits more visibility of the cuff, giving it an almost tuxedo feel. Add a broach and nice handbag, and you can go to the fanciest of parties
Now that we are thinking spring, these cropped pants look terrific with sandals as well. With a pair of high heeled sandals like these Kenneth Coles, it really dresses it up.
And don’t forget to throw in a splash of color like I did with this great RED vintage Bottega Veneta handbag!!
Last but not least, the blouse is designed with great feminine lines. It is meant to be worn both tucked in and untucked. The hem is long and high-low. I wore just the slacks and blouse one evening to a bar with some friends. Living in California, everyone asked why I was so dressed up (because most people wear just jeans, ugh) This look also garnered some complements, but this time from my Over Fifty friends,
I am so looking forward to seeing how I else I can mix and match these pieces. Stripes are going to be big this summer so I am envisioning these pants looking great with a striped shirt. I am also thinking that the shirt will go with jeans. Maybe I will find some striped pants (I love stripes) and wear the jacket with those. As I said at the start, the classic styles by Lafayette148 NY are fabulous. The possibilities are endless and what a great way to go out and be proud that you are an OverFifty woman styled, sophisticated and rockin’. We can show the younger ones how it’s done.
Yazemeenah’s unconventional life could make anyone jealous. She has led a life guided by love, passion, and her inner sense of what is “true in her hear.” Yazemeenah was raised by her grandparents on the Island of Corsica and on the French mainland. At 17 she married and gave birth to her son. Her daughter was born three years later. Her son, now 45, is the father of Yazemeena’s granddaughters, Sara, 16, and Leanne, 13.
Yazemeenah and her first husband divorced when she was in her 30s. She remarried 10 years later but divorced after 15 years. She is still friends with her second husband and today is single and happy.
In her 20s Yazemeenah was a “fitting model,” which required standing all day while designers literally fit their fashions on her body. Not surprisingly, she moved on from this to become a “real model,” with Ford Modeling Agency, and worked all over the world.
In 1999 she moved to the U.S., and settled in NYC. Coming to America allowed Yazemeenah the opportunity to showcase an unusual feature: her white hair. Her hair started going white when she was about 12 years old and she always loved her silver thread. While this look wasn’t appreciated in Europe, Yazemeenah found a more welcoming and receptive audience in America. That enable her to stay true to herself and never dye her hair. So along with the newfound freedom to be herself, and the uniqueness of her gorgeous white hair, she is now at age 62 one of the most beautiful women and models in the world, inside and out.
Eventually, Yazemeenah moved to California, knowing she would make less money and have fewer modeling opportunities, but seeking a lifestyle that suited her better. Her goal was never to be the most famous or beautiful model, striving instead to become the most beautiful version of herself.
You may wonder how one would go about doing this? For Yazemeenah, the process required searching – her soul, her past, her shadows, and her light. (In fact, in 2014, Yazemeenah’s searching led her to change her name from Yasmina to Yazemeenah, which is also phonetically how it’s pronounced.)
Yazemeenah has encouraged her granddaughters to embrace who they are without hear. She showed them how to seek the magic in every day. This could mean dancing outside of Disney Hall in front of strangers, or whatever it might take for Yazemeenah to “…engage them in a carefree and joyous expression of their souls that will leave an indelible impression in the hearts of these young women.”
“It is only by aging that we can be in touch with our inner power”
Although her grandchildren live in Europe and Yazemeenah sees them only twice a year, she feels and almost telepathic connection with her youngest granddaughter sho she believes one day may choose a lifestyle similar to her own. Though Yazemeenah lives in Malibu in a small house without a lot of material possessions, she is content.
This 61-year-old model is taking down agism in fashion. - YouTube
Contrary to what people might think about women in their 60s, Yazemeenah feels prettier today than ever before. Finding what matters most to her has skyrocketed her creativity, sensuality, and lust for life. She feels like a glower whose blossoms become more beautiful with each passing year.
Ironically, having shunned the traditional models’ path in NYC in the past, today Yazemeenah finds herself becoming more commercial sought after. She is also very popular on Instagram with women in their 20s and 30s seeking advice on how to stay well as we age.
Maybe there’s a lesson here for all of us. If you stay true to yourself and follow your heart you can continue to blossom with age. Imagine aging without fear because you’ve discovered the joy of thriving by simply being you.
It’s all about “Age Embracing” We are grateful to Yazemeenah for being such a wonderful role model for women of all ages!

Designer clothes for the sake of a logo are not important for mature women Over Fifty who are seeking style and fashion. in fact, feeling sexy and sophisticated Over Sixty, is better than any logo any day. There are two designers who do just that, Cushnie and Ochs. They create designs that is truly Ageless Style. Since these 2 beautiful women began over 10 years ago, I have swooned for their sensual aesthetic. Their designs are simple in the most sophisticated way, yet sensual and evocative. Their styles shout less is more.
The past few years I began realizing that if I bought a few things at a lower price, it still added up to over $500.00. So, I decided, I may as well look at the designer things and buy one thing I LOVE, rather than several things I merely like!! This time it paid off. Last month I just happened to be in Beverly Hills for something, and had some extra time. I decided to pop in to Neiman Marcus just to “look” (HA).
When I went to the designer section, I was shocked to find a pair of Cushnie and Ochs pants in my size, and for less than $200.00, which is great considering they were originally over $600.00. I kept looking and I found this very oddly hung dress that was also Cushnie and Ochs. It was impossible to tell what it really was, which is probably why it was on the final sale rack. So, I took a chance since the fabrics matched. (I have no idea if these 2 pieces were meant to go together.)
When the saleslady and I figured out how to get it on, I almost started to cry. Even two sizes too big, I fell in love. I knew it would not take much to alter it and you know that I bought those 2 pieces. They added up to a bit more than $500.00, but I thought I may never have this opportunity again. The next Saturday night we had a party to go to, and incapable of waiting until it was altered, I pinned up the straps, and made it work. I wore one of the first really nice designer ensembles I have ever owned!!
Rarely do I pull out my late Aunt’s handbag that she left me in her will, but this called for the Vintage Judith Leiber bag that is real crocodile with gold and crocodile handles. (Yes, Judith Leiber does make handbags that are not made only of Swarovski crystal) The outfit maybe could have used a pop of color, but I wanted to keep it really simple. In fact, the only jewelry I wore was an oversized pair of gold hoops by Sheila Fajl. Again, I wanted to keep the lines simple and elegant, like the dress and slacks
To get the full genius of this dress/top, you have to see the neckline. One side of the strap that wraps around the neck is larger than the other. The sides under each arm are also asymmetrical. It is impossible for you to guess how they did this, just as it is almost impossible to figure out how to get the dress on. I can not begin to explain how this dress goes on, but believe me, you need to be good in geometry! And THIS is what I love about Cushnie and Ochs. They are so creative in the way they create the lines. They are simple, unique, original and sensual.
I don’t think I got one complement the entire night at the party, but I didn’t care. I felt like a million dollars. And, this dress made me feel sexy, sensual, and daring. The dress/top opens at the bottom, which if you weren’t wearing pants, would definitely create an embarrassing moment when your undergarments peeked through. Thus, the pants were necessary and just perfect. I find it hard to believe that this was NOT how it was designed, and if so, I got SO lucky. I will treasure this always, and even more after it is altered.
My sandals are by Kenneth Cole. Again, very simple with only 2 straps. The slacks are about ankle length, which is the perfect length for this slightly edgy and sexy look. I am Over Sixty, and I don’t mind for a minute when I wear something like this. It is classic, sophisticated, sexy, sensual, and with the most creative design, Who needs a logo when this simple genius ensemble is magnificent?
It was after I bought this ensemble I sadly learned that Cushnie and Ochs are separating as a design team. This truly breaks my heart because every fashion week in New York for the past 10 years, I couldn’t wait to see what their genius minds would create. Thank you Cushnie and Ochs for stirring my passions for so long, and I will truly truly miss you. I look forward to what you can create separately and you know I will be watching!!
Blogging can be pretty lonely, so when blogger Sonia Lovett, from the blog Style Beyond Age, she was going to be in LA, we jumped at the chance to meet up and have some fun. Where else would two Over Fifty fashionistas meet but Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills? I also got a bonus, because Sonia brought her gorgeous daughter, Serena, with her. Serena is a stylist for television and celebrities and all things that pertain to Los Angeles. So, the 3 of us gals (I hope you don’t mind Serena that I include you as a gal with us “over fifties”) had so much fun learning about one another. All of us with different backgrounds but with one thing in common: the love of fashion!!
We even made a new friend, kind of, until we were stopped by security who told us we weren’t allowed to take photos in the store. I guess, Zara has knocked off one too many things, and pissed off a lot of retailers whom they copy!! But, we assured her we were just friendly bloggers having fun with no intent to copy anything and then all of us had a great conversation. We then resumed taking photos and I got some great ones of Sonia and her beautiful daughter. Like mother like daughter. Both beautiful.
Then Sonia and I had some fun. Up we went on the escalator while Serena stayed below to catch us coming down. It’s times like these when I really like blogging because meeting people who might never ordinarily meet and then goofing around Neiman’s, what could be better.
So, here we come. And, we have future plans, so stay tuned because I have a feeling with Sonia and her daughter there is a lot of creativity and fun!! I can’t wait!! You must check out her blog because she is pretty, stylish and is a natural fashionista!! http://stylebeyondage.com/ I even made it out of there without buying a thing, but as you can see I left the two of them alone and they were headed to the shoe department. Uh Oh!!
As a lover of hoops, I am so lucky to be able to feature the wonderful designs of Sheila Fajil, Famous Jewelry Designer for celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Kelly Osborne, and even Oprah – on her Oprah’s List of Favorite Things. Sheila just KNOWS how to design. Her styles are light weight, comfortable, and do not just make a statement, but they MAKE the outfit.
Shiela’s unique pieces are eco-friendly, sustainably made and hand made, in Brazil. The quality you will see is beautiful, and the 18k gold plating makes them look absolutely real through and through. Who needs a heavy earrings anyway when they just stretch out your earlobe and no one can tell the difference?
Wearing this classic look of elegant black and white, with a just a pop of red, something is needed by the face. The V-neck of the blouse leads your eye up to the face where the earrings add the perfect complement to this simple but sophisticated style. No wonder they are called “Everybody’s favorite“.
I also wore Everybody’s Favorite in the picture below. The perfect complement to a black turtle neck is a gold hoop. I have literally been wearing this look since high school. Not surprisingly, this is called the “Smaller Everybody’s Favorite Hoop”. Hoops are simple, refined, and nothing else is needed when you have a gorgeous pair like these. As you can see, I am definitely Over Fifty, but I think you are never too old for a hoop, and they also give a more youthful feel to this plain black turtleneck.
Dress them up or dress them down. The reason hoops are so popular is their versatility. Wearing a simple white shirt and jeans, this pair of “Elisa” hoops adds a nice pop of gold to liven it up a bit. Never be afraid to be simple. Less is more. One statement piece like these earrings is all you need to create a put together look!!
Not a subtle look wearing my red leather moto jacket below. I chose these smaller “Chantal” hoop earrings because they are on the smaller side, yet thick enough to be seen. Again, this shows that you can wear hoops with just about everything, even your pajamas if you happen to be going to a pajama party!! Seriously, there is NOTHING I can think of short of a Ballgown that you can’t wear with hoops. Here I chose to add another touch of gold with the necklace, but the earrings could have easily stood alone.
Now these are fun – the 18K Plated Alexi Hoop. With a bit more of a modern feel, you can wear these as a whimsical accent. With jeans, or modern styled ensemble, these add a youthful and adventurous touch. You can not believe how light weight they are. When you are holding them it is hard to know they are in your hand. So for a an easy breezy touch of flair these are a great addition for weekend fun.
These gold leaf and resin Amazon earrings are fun for an outfit calling out for some attention. These neutral colors definitely need a kick and these lightweight earrings with an earthy tone complement the ensemble but add that certain touch.
Just so you know, Sheila Fajil, does NOT just design hoops. She makes a variety of great other designs that are fabulous. Rings, bracelets, necklaces, you name it. Check out her other styles like these.
Fashion Over Fifty’s first makeover with Rosalie was such a great experience for both of us. Rosalie recently moved from Alaska to Southern California, what a switch!! She has been letting her hair grow out for the past few years because she always had short hair. She was very excited because she had been wanting to do something with her hair for a while. Meeting with the stylist Alison, who works out of her house, Rosalie looks a bit nervous.
The first step, the hair makeover, was amazing. Alison Sassoon did such a fabulous job on Rosalie’s hair. It’s amazing what a little color and cut can do for someone. It almost changes their entire demeanor
Rosalie is beautiful to begin with.. She has gorgeous blue eyes and the perfect oval face. Not only that, she is a really nice person. We spent a lot of time together and I got to know her pretty well. See how much younger she looks just with a little cut and color!! You see ladies, it really doesn’t take much. Just bravery!!
Senna Cosmetics in Tarzana, Ca. offered to do Rosalie’s makeup and gave her the VIP package. Her makeup artist, Jennifer, gave us some great tips on how to apply makeup for Over Fifty women. And Rosalie certainly looked like a VIP when they were done!!
Straight from the makeup studio, we went to this great boutique in Woodland Hills, Ca, called Jackeez and Nicolz located at 20000 Ventura Blvd. This is the 2nd fashion show for the store that I have helped produce and what a better way to help style Rosalie, than for a fashion show. There wasn’t enough time for real runway training, but the models did great. Just having a smile on their faces was a home run!! Looking at Rosalie, just “WOW”. Just “WOW” Rosalie!! Rosalie really stepped outside of her comfort zone with this outfit, and she looks phenomenal. Does this knock your socks off or what?
The next outfit Rosalie modeled was a great pair of leggings and a cold shoulder blouse.The blouse was a longer length, and being black, was very slenderizing. Rosalie was impressed with these leggings because we were told ponte knit can be washed over and over and never lose the color or shape.
This is Jackie, the owner of this wonderful boutique. Jackie is clearly another visionary having her customers and women Over Fifty as models. This is her second show and she told me how many women wanted to be in the show the second time. Isn’t that wonderful? Women wanting to be visible, and what a good time they had.
What a great experience for both of us. Not only did we bond over being women Over Fifty with children and life issues, but we had fun. It was so exciting for me too, to watch such a great transformation, and see a woman Over Fifty step out of her comfort zone!! That’s the only place we grow and I hope this inspires other women to step outside the box as well.
Rosalie and I will forever be connected through this experience. Thanks Rosalie for giving me the honor and trusting me to help do a “makeover”. I hope other women are inspired by how little it takes to look better without going to great measures. After all, when you look better, you feel better.
Welcome to out next makeover session with Rosalie. Spending 2 days with Rosalie, I have gotten to know her and she is such a lovely person. How fortunate am I that I have the privilege to get to know someone so nice, and to watch her transform before my eyes. The cosmetic company Senna, located in Southern California, https://www.facebook.com/sennacosmetics/ has studios throughout the area. So, here is our lovely Rosalie with no makeup at all. She is SO brave, I don’t think I could do this.
Our lovely makeup artist in Tarzana Ca., Jennifer, started with Rosalie’s eyebrows. Senna is known for their great eyebrow studios where they shape, tint, and sell great products for the eyebrows. As we get older, our faces lose contrast, so eyebrows are very important to maintain. You don’t want them too dark, but you should consider shading them in if you have mostly gray, or even tinting them.
The foundation applied to cover freckles and age spots was a full coverage blend since Rosalie was going to be in a Fashion Show!! Remember though, when buying Foundation, there should be some luminosity in the liquid. Luminosity deflects the light away from wrinkles. I will be doing a video about how I put on my makeup and I will give more tips then. After that, Jennifer did they eyes. Dark pencil was put on the Rosalie’s lower lid and eyeliner was put on the top lid. Wait until you see her blue eyes pop!!
Jennifer also made the eyeshadow a bit smoky. You are NEVER too old for a smoky eyelid. You can also see a light shadow with lots of shimmer on the top lid.
And after about an hour in Jennifer’s expert hands, Rosalie came out looking so beautiful. It convinced me that I need to go in next!! What a gorgeous job and what a switch from from when we first met Rosalie. Is she gorgeous or what?
There is not photoshopping of Rosalie’s face in either photo. I did photo shop the background in the final photo so that it is black. This way you can see the true comparison. Rosalie is ready for her closeup Mr. DeMille.
Fashion Over Fifty held it’s first contest for the lucky winner of a makeover. The lucky winner is Rosalie, who lives about an hour and half outside of Los Angeles, so it worked out really well (because she didn’t mind driving!!) I was so excited to meet Rosalie because she told me how much her daughter had been bugging her to do “something” with her hair. As it turns out, her daughter had already liked my Facebook page for her mom before Rosalie even knew about me, which is such a great coincidence. The weekend before this makeover I had been to the IMATS convention (International Makeup Artists Trade Show), so I picked up some goodies for a beginner’s incentive package.
Here is Rosalie. Rosalie recently moved from Alaska, of all places, to Southern California. There’s a big change in climate for you. She was so excited to get started and so was I. We met at my hairdresser’s house. My hairdresser of at least 10 years, is Alison Sassoon (no relation to Vidal). Alison used to work in big salons, but converted a room, and the laundry room into a beauty salon.
So off we went inside to meet Alison with the gorgeous red hair!! You can tell that she specializes in hair color, that’ for sure. Rosalie and Alison discussed what they thought was best, while I looked on, Rosalie had been growing her hair out and wasn’t sure what she wanted to do. (You can see one of my 2 sons in this photo. Both were helping me out.)
Rosalie definitely needed a cut. They also decided she could brighten up her color and give it a brighter feel. Rosalie was a very good sport because she trusted Alison, because I told her she could. I guess that means she trusted me too!!
Here is Rosalie before the Makeover begins!!! Let’s get the show on the road!!
Alison is now using a NEW technique. As long as I have been going to her, she has added highlights and low light with foil. I will have to get the proper spelling of spelling of it, but now she uses plastic wrap,and it sounds French. As Alison was working, I was trying to keep Rosalie entertained and giving her the plan for the next 2 days!!
Well, Alison is just about finished and I am really curious how this is going to turn out!! It looks very interesting!!
You will have to stay tuned to see how the color turns out, and then the cut.
When I first started blogging over 4 years ago, I also joined Facebook and Instagram like every good blogger for women Over Fifty does. My goal then, and now, was and is, to inspire women to feel their best inside and out. Personally, I was going through a crisis. Within one year, my mom passed away, my dad passed away, and both of my kids left for college (they are a year apart in school.). At 58, I didn’t want to go back to the same type of law I had been practicing because it was too stressful. I found that it would be hard to start from the beginning in another type of law because no one would want to pay me a salary commensurate with my experience. A month after my youngest left for college, my father-in-law passed away. So, I began searching for women who were reinventing themselves, or doing something Over Fifty that added meaning to their lives. I was in desperate need of meaning.
If you go back and search the beginning of this blog you will see that there were no articles about myself. I was searching for a purpose for my own existence by featuring inspiring women Over Fifty. As fate would have it, I met the most wonderful runway coach, Mark David Carter, who offered me the opportunity to take a class in modeling. After one class, I felt like I found my purpose. My core was engaged, my shoulders were back, and as I watched myself in the mirror, I was visible. My first thought was, I must bring this to other women. Thanks to the visionary stylist, and salesman, John LIptak, I had the opportunity to produce 3 fashion shows at Bloomingdale’s in Chicago on Michigan Ave
After the shows, I thought it would be most inspirational to show photos of the models.The look of joy in their eyes when on the runway, was so inspiring. I wanted to share this with the world. Just look at Carol below. She is beaming and you can feel how beautiful she feels about herself. This honestly has been the most rewarding thing that I have done since becoming a “blogger”. After 3 shows, Bloomingdales moved on to newer projects but I remain forever grateful for this opportunity.
Eventually, as time went on, people began telling me that I needed to promote myself, because I was inspiring. Reluctantly, I began doing this, but people saw my story as one of reinvention, so I thought it would be good to share that with others. Then, I was introduced to the world of Infuencers and Instagram stars who had become famous and were making a lot of money. Brands also started noticing me and sending me clothes to feature.
However, I began seeing LOGOS everywhere!!! What is that about? All of these young and older women were making sure their LABELS were seen. This is not what I had anticipated. So, it began to feel like it was a competition to see how well you could post your LOGO. I failed to see the merit in this content. It certainly has no meaning. It is about stupid “things”. Been there done that.
Posting a cute pair of white boots, yes. But, to post them with the double “C”s, to show that they are by Chanel, was pointless to me. Here, the white boots are posted to inspire women Over Fifty to take a chance with a new (old) style. Actually, most women Over Fifty, probably had white Go-Go boots when they were younger, so what’s old is new.
Bottom line, it feels like a popularity contest based on really superficial things. Hence, this is a very basic jeans and white shirt ensemble with a red belt and white boots thrown in for a bit of Splash. Like me or not, I am me, and I am going to keep it real. In the meantime, I have produced a few more fashion shows but I am looking to do this full time because, it still remains my passion
