I am so excited to be hosting Fashion Flash on Mother’s Day weekend. So many of us first learned about beauty care from our moms. In my family my mother and aunt would help each other touch up their blonde hair with a toothbrush and a home brew of peroxide. They were heavily influenced by the hair styles of the 1940’s and practically worshipped Helena Rubinstein. Mom never left the house without a spray of perfume and a dab of powder on her nose. Even at age 90, she would convince her friends to put on make-up and celebrate New Year’s Eve with her. I would love to hear what your mom taught you about beauty and fashion.
This week our Fashion Flash bloggers are enjoying the return of blue skies and warmer weather:

I am so thrilled that Chic At Any Age is part of the Fashion Flash community Not only does she hae flawless taste for women over 50, she is the best weather sensitive style on the web. In good weather, I can figure out what to wear for most occasions. But once it starts to rain or turn cold, and I am lost. But with Chic at any Age, I know how to wear a dress in winter and a stay stylish in the rain. Recently her site had technical difficulties and I want to be certain to know that she is back up and gorgeous!
