Its Fashion Flash Monday!

FF1This week Geri of Fab Over Fifty is hosting Fashion Flash. This  large well-written site is IMO the best  magazine style site  on the web.  Its packed with  info that is updated daily.  It has giveaways that I actually want such as a trip to France or a weekend spa vaca.  This week  FOF is giving away a Clarisonic, hands  down my favorite beauty tool.    Geri’s own blog that  shares her  concerns and experiences  that often leaves me  laughing.  This week she writes her concerns about  becoming a grandma for the first time. 

I also have become  addicted to reading what  Fab Over Fifty’s chief pundit, Barbara Hannah Gufferman is  thinking and doing.  Today I chuckled over  her post  describing how Peanuts cartton introduced her to Beethoven.  Remember … Continue Reading…

This week, Jodell of Black Cat Plus is hosting Fashion Flash.  Recently she uploaded an inspiring post  that focused on Sarah Robles, the awesome Olympic weightlifter.  Like  many  full figure women Sarah had trouble finding flattering, wearable clothes.  Two plus size designers, Jill Alexander and  Ming Wang stepped up to outfit Sarah for  London and the Olympic.

Red is apparently the hot color this year.  Be sure  to checkout the plus size options in this vibrant color

Black Cat Plus looks  at more more than  just plus size fashion.   I was moved by her analysis of a controversial Nike  that featured an over weight boy struggling to exercise.   Was it  motivational  or exploitive?  I’d love to hear what you think.

I’m so excited about the second Beauty Bash (created by our Geri Brin of Fab Over 50)  on Sept 29 at the MetropolitanContinue Reading…

This week the host of Fashion Flash is Geri of Fab Over Fifty aka FOF.   This sassy site  for smart, dynamic women is  packed with must read features.  FOF  tests  all manner of beauty and health care products  that range from glycolic peels to  magnetic devices for hot  flashes. I love  Date My Kid  section where  Mom’s can post pics and bios of their  single  children and I’m waiting for the announcement of the first FOF  marriage.    There is a  vibrant community of FOF guru’s  that are waiting   anxiously to answer   your questions on topics that range from antiques to woman’s health.  And  the  prizes  on FOF giveaways are soooo temping ( eg weekend spa vacations)  I never  miss a chance to enter.

One of the  most  popular features on FOF   is Hot or Not.  Origninally a term  used … Continue Reading…

I’m hosting  Fashion Flash  this week and I am so thrilled to be the one to  introduce our newest  member– Deja Pseu of  Une Femme d’un Certain Age.  One of  my all time favorites, this  blog looks at life, fashion, and  beauty  with a keen eye and a great sense of humor.  Seasoned with a  love of everything French, Une Femme   has a wondersul  perspective for those of us that are  not tall, not thin and   not young.   She road tests   her recommendations, posts sales alerts of favorites and  feels like a real friend.  She even locates dresses with SLEEVES!  Une Femme  has an amazing community of women whose comments make  me laugh, think and  learn.  When it comes to blogs, I tend to be a lurker,  but at least once a week I just … Continue Reading…

This week the host of Fashion Flash is Geri of Fab Over Fifty. I think that  maybe the best way to describe this great site is to think of it as the Huff Po for women.  It covers  so  much ground — fashion,  finances, health, beauty, family issues and relationships  in  dynamic and always  changing  features.  One of my favorites is the feature “Hot or Not”? It features a photo of a FOF (their term for  Fabulous Over Fifty women) ) in a dramatic outfit.  Then she has  3-4 stylists comment  on the look.  This week the look  is red framed eye glasses ( always good), a huge red plastic necklace, a droopy grey knit dress and a down vest. The comments are constructive rather than cruel and always informative and entertaining. 

Once you’ve finished … 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:
