fashion flash logoThis week Josephine of Chic At Any Age is hosting Fashion Flash! Josephine  splits  her time between St Tropez and London and combines  both  vibes into an elegant, European style.  In the summer  I love to copy  her flowing tunics and pants.  In  cold, wet weather he manages to look both  chic and stay warm. Best of all she picks such classic styles and colors that I  can find equivalents in  local US stores.   Her silvery gray  bob    and sparkling blur eyes  show that  true style is  just simply ageless.
