This week Fashion Flash is hosted by Deb of Fabulous After 40. I was a huge fan of this gorgeous fashion and beauty site long before I met Deb Boland. When she asked me to start Fashion Flash with her, I was thrilled. How often do you get to work with your idols! I love her newest feature where readers send in their outfits for events that range from coffee with friends to a daughter’s wedding. These are real time fashion ideas with affordable clothing on real over 40 bodies. While Polyvore is fun, it really doesn’t take into account costs and body type. The fashion you see on Fab After Forty is as accessible as it is beautiful. This site has changed the way I looked at accessories. I now see bags, shoes and scarves as an opportunity to add color and fashion trends rather than just comforst and or status. Fab After 40 has also published six photo packed e- books including guides to Mother of The Bride Dressing and How to Beate Frump that are available on their site.
