Its Fashion Flash Monday, hosted this week by Shawna of Female Fat Loss After 40. I’ve always struggled with my weight, so the after 40 slowdown in metabolism is just another challenge in the battle of the bulge. I’ve found that my skinny friends who for years could seem to eat everything and still stay svelte, are finding weight control after 40 a HUGE problem. Here’s where Shawna’s great site and blog provides targeted info on how to lose weight and stay fit at this time in their lives.
After clicking on Shawna and picking up yet another great tip, you’ll want to check out ” The Gospel According to Coco Chanel” by Karen Karbo. She brings her novelists eye to a book on the fashion icon that weaves a personal bio with the back stories for the Chanel styles that we are still wearing today. The little black dress, fake pearls, bell bottom pants, twin sweater sets, black tipped shoes, ballet flats for streetwear,and striped tees were all introduced by Chanel as she freed women from restrictive fashions. Chanel created many of her classic styles when she was over 40 and many of her ideas were especially flattering to women who weren’t born yesterday.
