Its Fashion Flash Monday!

Its Fashion Flash Monday and this week the Glam Gals at Fabulous After 40 are hosting.  What I especially love  about this site is the sense of detail.   For example, stripes are a big trend  for spring, but can be challenging to wear.  Fabulous After 40 found stripes not only  in a range of  tops and dresses, the Glam Gals also showed how to use the look in shoes and bags. This week  Fabulous After 40  explores Missoni style patterns  and showed how to create a long lean line  with this bold pattern.   They even found a Missoni patterned bangle to take  baby steps into this bold look.  Most fashion sites  just show images for beautiful bone thin women in expensive clothing.  Nice  but  not that helpful. Fabulous Over  40 drills down into  every look and style to  explain how to actually use  it in daily life.  The Glam Gals of Fabulous After 40  believe  that fashion is not  just a spectator  sport.  They are committed to blasting  women like me out of their fashion comfort zone and  getting us to enjoy  new  styles and colors.    And don’t forget to sign up  for their free webinar on April 3  that deals with the best ways to  hide  a less than perfect, flat tummy.

And when you’ve finished  reading through all the info packed Fashion Flash sites, check out  The Book of Lost Fragrances by M.J. Rose.  This  just published novel combines three of my favorite themes– beauty, history, and mystery.  I was hooked at the first scene where Napoleon and his aide  are entering the long lost tomb of an ancient Egyprian perfumer.  Then  the scene jumps to present day New YorK City  where the daughter of the aide is about to become embroiled in  an adventure to  find the long lost fragrance.   The  fast  paced plot blends mythology, reincarnation and a love story that  endures across time.  And at the very satisfying ending, there is another  short chapter that  provides background facts and illustrations behind the novel.  It’s like Harry Potter for women!
