April turned out to be fantastic. First, there was another adventure to Washington, D.C. for a second visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. This time, the NMAAHC tour included coordinating thirteen family and friends who came from New York, Maryland, and Philadelphia. And I can’t forget my amazing experience at the Chico’s casting call in New York City. But the pièce de résistance this month was our VIP preview at Burberry.
Our VIP Preview at Burberry. The Burberry Store at the King of Prussia Mall.
I say “our” because my BFF and I were invited to attend a private showing of Burberry’s Spring 2017 line inside its store at the King of Prussia mall.
As a woman of a certain age, opportunities to highlight who you are and what you look can be hard to come by. However, (I think) because of my involvement in The Fierce 50 Campaign, I received an invitation to participate in a casting for a possible spot Chico’s 2017 fall campaign. I drove to New York City with my daughter on Monday afternoon to get ready for the casting on Tuesday.

On Sunday, April 9, Target will experience a British invasion when former Spice Girl and now fashion designer, Victoria Beckham releases her limited-edition collection. Are you contemplating any pieces from the Victoria Beckham Target Collection?
I was hoping to start wearing my new spring clothes. But no! There was snow last week, frigid temperatures over the weekend and this week there is a threat of a Nor’Easter. What’s a girl to do? Well, dress appropriately.
I Salute Former First Lady Michelle Obama.
In celebration of my 4th blogiversary, I salute former first lady Michelle Obama. Today, I serenade Mrs. O because she represented style and substance.
I know I’m not the only one who couldn’t keep their eyes off of Michelle when she exploded on the scene back in 2007. It was when Barack Obama, then just a junior Senator from Illinois, announced his candidacy for President of the United States.
Is anyone else fascinated with the way Parisians appear impossibly chic? When I packed for my recent trip to Paris, I was sure to include an iconic Breton stripe top because it’s synonymous with the Parisian chic look I was after.
I did my homework before my trip to Paris in November to learn of the key pieces to add to my chic essentials wardrobe list.
As we seasoned ladies advance in age, let’s not lead a sedentary lifestyle which can lead to obesity. It’s a new year and an excellent time for a new you in 2017. Do you have health or wellness goals? Are you actively inspired? Then you need to discover the chic activewear at Chadwicks of Boston.
As I shared in my post last week, I prefer to utilize a vision board versus annual resolutions. I find this relatively new practice helps me to stay focused as well as accomplish my short and long-term goals.
My wellness goals still include doing at least 10,000 steps daily. However, this year, I plan to incorporate more cardio activity into my exercise program explicitly. You know, with simple tasks like taking the stairs and parking farther from the store while running errands.
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.
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.
Location: Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park, Lancaster, PA. Wearing: Vintage Iridescent trench jacket similar here, not so new Faux Leather Peplum top, old J. Crew Minnie Pant with Frye “Billy Western Shootie and my Louie Speedy.
