Its Fashion Flash Monday!

Fashion-FlashThis week Josephine of  award winning  Chic At Any Age is hosting Fashion Flash.  She is a fashion professional that shares real life  style advice.  Most fashion  layouts ignore the impact of weather on  style.  They offer chiffon skirts in winter  or a chunky   cashmere tank top in summer. And they  seem  to forget  that  suede  stilettos and rain are a terrible combo.  Not Chic  At Any  Age.  For example  this month she  did an amazing  spread on   style during a  cold windy holiday in Wales. With just a few key items including a blue wool dress, boots and  tights, she   was warm,comfortable and beautiful.  Subscribe to  her wonderful site to  get all her great advice.
