Its Fashion Flash Monday!

This week the  host of Fashion Flash is Deja Pseu of Une Femme D’un Certain Age. I love this site and  check in every day to read  her always insightful and entertaining posts.  Recently she  took on the white shirt  which  just about every  fashionista recommends as a  warddrobe basic.  However as the  years go by the  plain tailored  white shirt which looked so cute in our twenties, now  seems  boxy and severe.  Pseu  tried on  a wide range of styles and came up with   runched  front that  both defines a waist and hides a multitude of flaws.   A simple answer to a common problem. Her videos  on  different ways to tie a scarf are so delightful I would love  to gift them  to friends.  Right now you can download them for free but I have urged her to package them for … Continue Reading…
