The Best Little Black Dress For The Mature Women

Hello fashionistas, It’s getting to be that time of year when the little black dress comes into play quite nicely. A great black dress is a perfect choice for so many occasions as we enter the holiday season. This simple black dress can be dressed up for super formal events such as a cocktail party, Christmas or New Years’ eve event, or even a winter wedding. It can also be worn for casual events. The black dress can be styled more casually for work or church, with a scarf, blazer, and a pair of nude pumps.

The difference is simply the choice of accessories! Diamonds and rhinestone jewelry with lots of sparkles are excellent for more formal holiday occasions. Pearls are always a classic choice at any time. Pair these looks with strappy heels, or even some metallic silver or gold pumps. A small clutch or evening bag is best for a formal look.  A fur or faux fur coat would be fabulous with an LBD.  Also, a long neutral winter coat would be beautiful, as well. The many ways you can style the LBD are endless! Its a must-have in every classic women’s wardrobe.

The best little black dress for the women over 50, in my opinion, have the following features:

  1. They have a sleeve that hits at the elbow or slightly below. A 3/4 sleeve length is the most flattering of all sleeves. It hides any “chicken wings” we get as we age and lose muscle mass. It doesn’t add the appearance of extra fabric to the sides of our hips and waist like long sleeves tend to do.
  2. The V neck is also the most flattering neckline on every body type. The V neck elongates the silhouette and draws attention to your face.
  3. A dress that hits just below the knee looks best on more mature women as our knees tend to be one of the areas that can show our age. If you have great knees (lucky) then keep your length just at or above your knee.  Any professional stylist will recommend a dress this length for mature women as it looks tasteful,  sophisticated, and classy.
  4. A wrap style dress is very figuring flattering on just about everyone, as well as an empire waist style, this can create the illusion of a waist even if you don’t have a defined one. This silhouette helps create the coveted hourglass shape.

 

I hope these tips will help you find the perfect little black dress that makes you look and feel your best! When that happens, you will be confident and the best version of your self.

Fifteen​ Affordable Snake Print Trends For Fall

IMG_0880
On-trend snake print is one of the most popular animal prints this season. It can be found on everything from dresses, skirts, tops, coats, jackets, sweaters, boots, handbags, belts, and also pants. I think for me personally, I like it on a simple cami, top, denim jacket, bag, belt, booties, or pair of pumps. This will be how I incorporate this hot new trend into my wardrobe.

One of the easiest ways to jump into wearing a new trend is to start with accessories first. I recommend a scarf, belt, or just a pair of shoes might be the easiest way to try this trend. Later on, go for more substantial clothing items.

 

 

 

 

 

When a new trend comes into fashion, I always like to start out slow with super affordable pieces first. Then if I feel good wearing that trend, I will think about buying high-end investment garments or accessories.  I have linked below many of the ones I am currently thinking about adding to my fall and winter wardrobe. I hope they help you find something to add to your closet

Have a blessed day!

Outfit Of The Day At My Husband’​s Conference​ Presentation

IMG_1016Hello Friends, yesterday I had the privilege of handling the back of the room book sales for my husband’s books at The Connecting Faith in Business Summit in Riverside at the Convention Center. The theme for this year focused on family businesses. My hubby literally wrote the book on this subject, and he is an expert in this subject. He was a speaker and the master of ceremonies at this event. My outfit of the day was a leopard print dress by A New Day from Target, my Gucci belt from Nordstrom Black leather Steve Madden Boots and a long black cardigan sweater. I have everything linked for you below.

If you are interested in buying my husband’s book, I will link it for you as well. The book was chosen by Harvard Business School Publishing, they offer it for sale by the chapter to be paired with case studies and professors can add it to a coursepack.

Covered​ Perfectly: A Favorite Brand For Mature Women

IMG_0840

Hello, fashionistas, I am proud to be collaborating again with Covered Perfectly.  They are a fantastic clothing brand for us “more mature” women. Their clothing line is flattering for all different figures. It is made well and priced reasonably.  They so graciously sent me two tops, and this leopard print top hits all the right notes. I love that the leopard print is in a vertical design and very figure-flattering. Also, the V neck and A-line style of the top is super flattering. Best of all, leopard is on-trend and one of the top prints of the fall and winter season for 2019

I chose to belt this top at the waist, but it also looks excellent unbelted, The length and style of the tops from Covered Perfectly are absolutely perfect for any mature women who might need to hide a few extra pounds over the coming holiday season.

 

 

I am very impressed with their clothing, All styles are very forgiving and figure-flattering no matter your shape. They have a wide range of sizes from S, M, L, XL, 1XL, 2XL and can accommodate many different body shapes; apple or pear, straight, or hourglass. Women of all sizes and shapes are beautiful!

They make their clothes out of a fabric called MicroModal that feels good on the skin and is cool when women have hot flashes! I also love that almost everything is available in so many different color choices.

 

 

They also sent me this cute violet bell-sleeved V-neck top. This one is currently on sale. Covered Perfectly has so many cute styles to choose from. I highly suggest checking them out and trying their clothing! You won’t be sorry, and I know after you do, it won’t be the last time! Every time I post something from them, I get a massive amount of positive feedback.  I have linked their website below, along with the links to the items they sent me.

On-trend Tweed Jackets

IMG_0708.jpg

Hellow fashionistas, If you have a tweed jacket hiding in the back of your closet, now is the time to pull it out! Tweed jackets were all over the fall and winter runway shows. I love this pastel blue, pink, green tweed jacket with the metallic threads. It was an investment piece I got as a gift from my hubby about ten years ago. The classic style of a tweed Chanel style jacket is timeless and can be worn year after year, never going out of style. I love the versatility of dressing it up or down like I’ve done here with some jeans and a ruffled blouse.

IMG_0693

If A Chanel jacket isn’t in your budget, I understand! Many beautiful tweed jackets are available at all price points. You can shop everywhere from Nieman Marcus, Nordstrom, Macy’s, TJ Max, stein mart and Target for a great little on-trend tweed jacket.

I have linked several of my favorites for you below. Have a blessed weekend,
Sandy
