The host of Fashion Flash this week is Deb of Fabulous After 40. I was a fan of Fabulous After 40 long before we statred to blog together in Fashion Flash. Looking great at any occasion is not a matter of money, weight or age. Fashion is in the details and Fabulous After 40 drills down to offer advice that you can take with you into the dressing room. Last week Deb offered styling tips for short waisted women. This certainly applies to me and I finally realized why I liked pants and shirts without waistbands and why I never like to tuck in my top. I’m not weird– its the best choice when you’re short waisted.
This week, Cindy of Prime Beauty is hosting Fashion Flash. I am in the middle of Budget Beauty series so I’ve become a huge fan of Prime Beauty’s Frugal Friday feature. This week she featured a tempting palatte of eye shadows made even more tempting at half price. Cindy has also started to feature great holiday gift sets including Kiehls’s Creme de Corps Holiday Collection with 100% of sales going to children’s causes around the world and Tarte Baby it Bold Outside blush or lip gloss sets.
IMO Prime Beauty has awesome recommendations for fragrances. On her recommendations I have tried ( and loved) new brands and old favorites like Jo Malone and Anik. I also rely on Cindy for eval of hair products. I can decode a wall full of moisturizers, when it comes to hair products, … Continue Reading… →
This week Jackie of Aging Backwards is the host of Fashion Flash. Jackie is one of those people who always seem to get it right. She is the one in a group that picks the best restaurant in the neighborhood ( and orders the tastiest dish), she gets invited to the best parties ( and takes you along) and shares her knowledge with joy and enthusiasm. We bumped into each other at the International Beauty Show and walked thru the exhibits together. It is pretty overwhelming, but in the mass of products, Jackie suddenly spotted a table of sponges. She grabbed up two packages of microfiber wipes declaring these were a great way to remove make-up. When I got home, I roadtested the round lavendar disks and was blown away. They were the BEST way ever to remove eye make-up. Just a swipe with the dampened pad and mascara and … Continue Reading… →
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 … Continue Reading… →
This weekend, Fashion Flasher Geri of Fabulous Over Fifty hosted the amazing Beauty Bash in New York City. For the first time, eight Fashion Flashers were together at one time. We went out to dinner at Olives in the W Hotel and were having such a good time that a young women came over to find out who we were. When she heard about Beauty Bash, she and her friends bought tickets and came to hear the lectures and visit the booths. It was that good! And in between giving presentations and talking to the over 1000 women who came to visit, we kept blogging. This week:
