My Favorite Over 40 Fashion Blogs

Blogging Fashion By Decade

After my post about MORE Magazine I started thinking about the inspiration I find on the Internet.

Inspiration doesn’t have to come from someone your same age, but as we age our tastes do change and it’s wonderful to see fellow women on the other side of…

The End of More Magazine – What Went Wrong?

Blogging Entertainment Fashion By Decade

Last week, MORE Magazine shuttered after almost two decades.

Ask Allie: Are Pantyhose Stylish?

Fashion Advice Fashion By Decade lingerie

Since I’m in my 60’s now, I am uncomfortable in dresses without hosiery. Is it ok to wear them now? Or is bare legged still the trend? Three cheers for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge who brought nude hose back en vogue. While the bare legged trend isn’t going anywhere, because of Kate there’s far more stylish sheer hosiery options available in stores and no one will wrinkle their nose at…
