Metrostyle Purrfect Leopard Sweater
Leopard is one of this season’s must-have trends. I scored a Metrostyle purrfect leopard sweater for my recent vacation to Paris, France.

Full disclosure: I love to stand out in any crowd wearing elegant and chic classic attire especially for my age (61).  Sometimes it feels like our society expects women of a certain age not to be interested in fashion or style and to dress frumpy.

There Frye Shooties Are Made For Walkin'
It’s been a moment since I’ve reminisced about childhood fashions.  Let’s go down Memory Lane. Some of you may remember Nancy Sinatra’s song, “These Boots Are Made For Walkin?,”  that debuted in 1966.  At that time, go-go boots were the thing to have.  Fast-forward to this post: I’m talking shoe fashion. Specifically, these Frye shooties that are made for walkin’ in Paris.

According to the Long Island Mseum, their 2015 exhibit on Beth Levine titled, “Beth Levine:  The First Lady of Shoes,”  the sleek white go-go boots that Nancy Sinatra often wore when performing that hit song were designed by Levine.

Paris Chic Essentials List
The countdown is until I embark on my Paris River Cruise.  For the last year, I’ve dreamed of this European getaway on the Seine River.  Now, it comes down to my Paris chic essentials list, of what to pack and how not to overpack.

European River cruises continue to be a top vacation destination for Americans according to AAA travel.  For me, it was a no-brainer to experience to glide along the Seine River to view city buildings and landmarks.

Yes, Mr. Dior

Yes, Mr. Dior
Christian Dior died in 1957 on October 23rd, at the age of 52.   The classic Dior style continues to this day.  I say, yes Mr. Dior to the sophistication and elegance under the tutelage of Italian fashion designer, Maria Grazia Chiuri.

Yes, Mr. Dior

In Christian Dior’s book released in 1954, The Little Dictionary of Fashion, the introduction states exactly what I believe in fashion, “But it is possible for a woman to be elegant without spending very much money on her clothes, if she follows the basic rules of fashion and is careful to choose the clothes that suit her personality.”

Green Zone

Green Zone
According to Christian Dior’s 1954 book, The Little Dictionary of Fashion, the color green is supposed to be an unlucky color. I’d say things have changed regarding the color. In fact, for me, this natural color is making a strong difference every morning as I go to the green zone for breakfast.

Being in the green zone is my way to kick start my metabolism with 7 – 9 servings of fruits and veggies in one fell swoop with one drink.

Pink Ribbon

Pink Ribbon
Since 1991, the pink ribbon has stood for the universal symbol for breast cancer awareness, thanks to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.  The pink ribbon is the well-known symbol adopted by many organizations including the National Football League to help promote awareness for breast cancer.

It’s October again, so you know what that means, hundreds, if not thousands of products are branded pink with a promise of a small portion of the total cost being donated to support breast cancer research.

Got Menopause?

Got Menopause?
September is National Menopause Awareness Month. But I bet women who are also a part of the baby boomer generation don’t need this reminder. I first experienced menopause symptoms almost twenty years ago. Are you a baby boomer who is embracing “the change?” Have you started menopause?

Got Menopause?

The dictionary defines menopause as “the end of monthly cycles.”  A better description is a natural decline in reproductive hormones when a woman reaches her 40s or 50s. Both accounts are accurate, and no two women are alike. My mom, who is  soon to be eighty,  has never had a hot flash.

Chocolate Goodness

Chocolate Goodness
Every September, I purposely remind myself of all the chocolate goodness you can find in Hershey, Pennsylvania — “The Sweetest Place On Earth.”

Chocolate Goodness

This obession with chocolate goodness dates back to September 8, 1984, when I married my husband at the Hershey Gardens.  Thirty-two years later, the historic landmark, four-star hotel has expanded with two major additions, including a full-service spa called, The Spa At The Hotel Hershey that opened in 2001.
