So, I've decided to venture towards this massive, white, senescent   pachyderm in the room! After all, what is that and where is the Dept of Age Appropriate situated? And if there 'is' a line to cross into inappropriate I'm fairly sure, I've not only tripped, but vaulted over it at times. Yet, I respect that we often work in industries where our customers might lack faith in our judgment, should we decide to dress like Betsey Johnson while (for instance) attempting to sell burial plots to the grief stricken. That might not work that well! But, occasionally, maybe we feel like stepping out of our comfort zone and just 'trying' something fun or silly...just because we like it. Because fashion should be fun, not frightening!

I adore this coat. Absolute winner this season. Fun, bold, universally appealing colour combination, substantially heavy weight, perfect length...what is not to love? This works for anyone, of any age, from kitten to cougar!

Jumpsuits have come a long way since Elvis' time. While you might possibly pass this up deeming it to be too revealing, with a bit of creativity (as above) this can easily work from day to date! Add a whimsical top, a scarf or a distracting eclectic mix of vintage pendants.

Season after season, Bear Dance continues to entertain us with their amusing take on the t shirt. "BUT I'M OVER 50!!" you proclaim...meh, Fifty shmifty....fun has no age limits. Throw on a blazer, an infinity scarf and a pair of plimsolls and you have your weekend look.

The typical harem pant (gathered bottom) has come back as an alternative fit. Up the style function with pumps or sandals, or tuck them into boots. I typically avoid wearing the camo prints to 'meet the teacher' meetings as I like them to believe I'm co-operative not combative. Otherwise the print keeps coming back season after season presenting an alternative to florals.

Not only is this pretty much an ageless look, it's also compelling for anyone who aims for comfort as a minimum fashion requirement. A universally popular style, married with the comfort of terry, add in pockets and above the knee length and this becomes a jacket, or a dress, or a shirt. Add or subtract tights or a belt ...there are so many combinations.

Pure French terry shirt dress (black or denim) $98

Here's a top that has been a huge hit at Plum. Crosses the boundaries of casual to fashion in a very creative, yet easy going way. Doesn't distract from the smoking hot footwear you're aching to show off, rather a good balance!

Pure slouchy knit sweater tunic (ash, fig) $98

When I was 20 I didn't want to look 20, now that I'm double that (give or take 10), I still don't want to look 20 either. I don't feel the need to wear tinsel in my hair or neon lipstick, and I have respect for the establishments I frequent...work, school, banks, churches, however, fashion is a fun way to express myself and when I'm 90, I presume I won't loose that. I might loose my teeth and hair but not my sense of amusement.

The full quote is "Well behaved women, seldom make history"~Laurel Thatcher Ulrich. In honor of International women's day, I thought this could be an apt title for this weeks blog. My only question is...why only one day!! We do great things...we run businesses, we teach, clean up after people, perform surgery and gee our bodies are capable of making people...and we only get one day? Well, let's celebrate the other 364 as well...wear what we love most, adorn ourselves with fabulous accessories; whatever makes us feel powerful, happy and US! (fyi, naked can feel this way too;)

Those are some dangerous curves...which is one difference between us and the other half. And why shy away from them. If you have them (curves that is), show 'em off! After all, when you have a fabulous caboose, your pants stay up better.

Point Zero embroidered blouse with crochet insert (cream) $75

Yoga Italy jean (hand sanded) $148

This seriously well designed Simone dress takes an uncompromising approach to fit. Cap sleeved, exposed zipper, fully lined, colour blocked, providing a perfect, sleek looking, professional addition to your wardrobe.

Simone slim dress with contrast and short sleeves (black/white or Navy/white) $149

Yes, I know...it's not all about the hips. This fabulous, a line swing shape dress draws attention upwards...where your beautiful face is. The great thing is, with such a neckline, who needs jewellery...or at least a necklace is redundant.

Very J open neck sleeveless a-line dress (black) $59

Try these camouflage pants if you're looking for a way to stand out from the crowd from the sea of solid colour bottoms...or rather, I guess you'd blend in....ANYWAY, they're fun, great casual weekend wear apparel.

Mavi Juliette cargo pant (military green) $118

You know, you're the star attraction, you don't need a sweater to prove that, although, why not! Fun, albeit subtle star featured in the middle!

Soya concept star sweater (sand) $85

So, in this 'week' that celebrates women...I say I'm grateful for all those great women in my life, my Mother, my sisters, my aunts, cousins, friends and even my little girls....and heck even my brother because he's been like a sister to me...

Yours in Fashion passion...
