This week Janise of Mama in Heels is hosting Fashion Flash. Her beautiful site neve fails to delight me. She is an acitve engaged mom who uses her reasl lifeactivities to demonstrate real life fashion, food and beauty needs. One of my favorite features is her budget fashion posts. For $100 she goes shopping to come up with OOTD for a wide range of occasions. Too many fashion blogs feature very expensive clothing for which they have have affiliate links.

This week one of our newest bloggers, Tania of Fifty is Not Old, is hosting Fashion Flash. I totally agree with Tania that Fifty is not old, but too many designers and fashion editors tend to void my tribe. Tania is a pathfinder that shows how to add style, color and southern charm to any wardrobe. Equally important is her recognition that our clothing NEEDS change as the years go by. Most of us work from the home and do not need a closet full of authoritative suits dresses and pumps. Nor do we spend the day in a car ferrying our kids from one event to another. We need comfortable clothing that is still chic and flattering. Leggings and tunics with cute shoes are now our new “uniform” … Continue Reading…
