Prime Beauty is aimed at  women over 40, but her advice is valid for women of any age. Subscribe to her site not to miss  a single post.

Fashion Flash Today!

fashion flash logoThis week one of our newest bloggers, Tania of Fifty is Not Old, is hosting Fashion Flash. I totally agree with Tania that Fifty is not old, but  too many designers and fashion editors tend to void my tribe. Tania is a pathfinder that shows how to  add style, color and southern  charm to  any wardrobe.  Equally important is her recognition that  our clothing NEEDS  change  as  the years go by.  Most of us  work from the home and do not need   a closet  full of authoritative suits dresses  and pumps.  Nor do we  spend the day in a car ferrying  our kids from one event to another.  We need comfortable clothing that is still chic  and flattering.  Leggings and tunics with cute shoes are now our new “uniform” … Continue Reading…

It’s Fashion Flash Monday

fashion flash logoThis week Fashion Flash is hosted by Allison of Never Say Die Beauty.   I was  a huge fan of this  beautiful site  long before she joined Fashion Flash.  Allison takes her reviews very seriously.  She does not  deal with products  she  does not trust or believe in.  When Never Say Die Beauty suggests a new  moisturizer or lipstick, I know that my face will be happy I took  her advice.
