This week I am so delighted that Cindy of Prime Beauty is hosting Fashion Flash! IMO Cindy of Prime Beauty has some of the best online reviews of fragrances and make-up. I always scroll thru her site before shopping for a new lipstick or perfume, I not only find exactly what i want, I save money by avoiding products that just don’t deliver. Subscribe to her wonderful site that you won/t miss a single info filled post.
This little book is bursting with fashion advice for women like me. In other words I love fashion but fully realize that leather leggings and a crop top- the favorite outfit of so many online fashion sites- will never, ever be right for me. . But rather than sinking back into dull and traditional, Style Forever demonstrates how to use classics, vintage and current style to knock ’em dead at every room you enter.
The book is endlessly original and enertaining. One of my favorite bits is her list of “Ten Best Kick Ass Jacket Moments”. As I read thru the list, the images popped into my mind and brought a big smile to my face. This cascade of fashion blasts from the past sent me running to my closet to find my one and only Chanel jacket, tuxedo and blood red blazer. It made me so glad I hung onto them.
Style Forever breathes new life into calssics like the St James striped Breton tee, the “Big Girl”silk shirt and the statement coat. And then she explains how to wear them with style and confidence. Her approach to the tunic dress showed me how to be chic in cold weather– a BIG problem for the new York winter.. I especially enjoyed the interviews of fashionistas of my age– a welcome relief from the gagggle of twenty something fashion bloggers. Style Forever is a small but might guide which proves fashion is forever.
