When it comes to dressing age-appropriately, there are a lot of grey areas but one thing is for sure – how you dress says a lot about one’s confidence. Fabuliss did a quick model search from some major retailers (above) and it was challenging to find women that looked over 30, let alone 40 or 50.  Talbots, a once-mature brand is now using significantly younger models.  It was not long ago when an entire catalog showed a confident woman somewhere in her 40s or 50s.  She is...

This topic for #stylechat was inspired by some statistics I circulated regarding how the time allotted to getting ready in the morning dramatically declined over the course of the week. The study, from a major British retailer, suggested that we make an effort to look our best on Mondays and do not care as much by the time Friday hits. Highlights from the discussion were: Kids are a major factor when it comes to how much time one has to get ready. The longest part of getting ready tends to be...
