Merry Christmas and A Styling Gift
Merry Christmas to those of you who are celebrating! I hope you are spending yours with loved ones, making memories for the future. I want to thank you all for reading and being here. You generously share your wisdom and experience in the comment section which is a true gift – to me and to other readers. You’ve made this a supportive community of wise, kind women and I am so grateful.
I’d like to give 3 of my readers a styling gift. Simply leave a comment telling me what you’d like to see more of next year. I will choose at random and get in touch.
Thanks for making this blog what it is and have a Very Merry Christmas.
I love your blog Jennifer. I find it not only helpful and practical, but fun! I always look forward to reading it!
I especially love when you are traveling locally. I can see the sites plus what you chose to wear. I also appreciate your updates on which stores have promotions going.
Please continue the great work! Merry Christmas!
Echoing the comments of all who posted, Jennifer, I enjoy your blog so much, I feel like I know you!
What I like best is when you take on the challenges of aging (all the things we’d rather not talk about) and deliver advice and suggestions in a kind, and often humorous, way.
I wouldn’t mind seeing more fashion priced a little more reasonably, too. Thanks, keep up the great work and warmest wishes for a Merry Christmas to you and your family!!
Merry Christmas! Dressing Room Diaries is definitely my favorite on your blog. Since I’m not working any more, it’s the way I see what fashionable women are wearing.
Happy Christmas Morning Jennifer…to you and yours! I’m on the East coast and read your blog first thing every morning. I enjoy it immensely and always glean useful information and inspiration from your posts. I’ve always been in good health and felt (and dressed) younger than my years. But now in my late 60s I’m having some health issues which have challenged my usual optimistic outlook on aging and looking my stylish best. It’s a struggle some days to think about (or care) about what I’m wearing, doing my hair, or putting on makeup! Since your posts really do inspire me I’d love to see more about easy makeup and care techniques for aging skin, hair styling and casual comfortable dressing with style and class.
Thank you again for the information and inspiration you bring to all of us!
Merry Christmas to you and yours. I’d love to see everyday looks, working around the house looks. How does one upgrade that look, make it fresh and fun. Wearing jeans and a tee or sweatshirt, or athletic wear, works for real life jobs like scrubbing floors, gardening, messy cooking, or cleaning out the garage,but it’s often boring and not particularly flattering. What is a good source for work clothes and how to create your own everyday look?
Sue, I’m with you on this. I usually wear the clothes that I have that are comfortable but that are past their prime, but I am very tired of them and would rather perk things up a bit. I’m 82, so maybe it’s a little late for perky, but you know what I mean. I hope you are chosen, and I look forward to creating a new every day look.
Elena, never too late for perky! And I would love to see more everyday, working around the house looks! Love your blog, Jennifer
I have to ditto Sue’s suggestion. I would love to see more posts on casual everyday dressing. Many of us retirees are spending more time putting around the house, gardening, or quick jaunts to the grocery store. I like comfortable, casual, non-fussy clothes, and nice loungewear. Thanks Jennifer and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas Jennifer and to your family…you are such an inspiration to me and I thank you for your candidness…you are so honest and open with us all. You make it seem like we’re best friends! I would be interested in how you got started with this blog and if you have any tips to maybe start a blog??? Also, I would love to hear about your daily routine, and where do you get your energy from. You are always so upbeat and full of life…. what’s your secret!??
Thank you for your friendship….
Merry Christmas! I, too, would enjoy seeing more dressing room diaries. I enjoy how you incorporate the new items into your current wardrobe.
I came across your blog about a month ago and have enjoyed reading your mix of posts. I would love to read more about is how to style different pieces into different looks (hope that makes sense..). Hope your holidays are merry and bright!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, Jennifer!
I love your blog & am so happy that I found it.
I enjoy posts about stylish dressing on a budget, how to dress casually & classically, styling tips for fine hair, skin care & makeup over 60, how to choose patterned clothing as a petite woman (I tend to choose solids since patterns often feel overwhelming). I also love your Dressing Room Diaries & Would You Wear It.
I look forward to your guidance in 2019!
Look forward to your blog every day. Would like to see more clothing in tall sizes.
Merry Christmas, Jennifer! I enjoy reading your blog each day. I would like to see a few more postings about putting together great-looking outfits on a budget. My husband and I are both retired, so I don’t spend as much in clothing as I once did, but I still like to look stylish.
Merry Christmas Jennifer! I hope you get to spend some time with family and that handsome grandson of yours! I love reading your blog-you have truly made me more style conscious, even though I’m retired! Every occasion is a special one! I would love to see more ideas on flattering accessories as we age-jewelry and scarves. You do a great job with those and have helped me stay “current”
I enjoy your blog.You have great advice and styling tips. I love the way you put your outfits together and use different accessories to change the look of the outfit. I enjoy the fact that your lifestyle is less formal and more like mine. I love your take on shoes since I have to wear comfortable shoes now and you have some wonderful ideas regarding shoes that are comfortable. You keep it real.practical and fashionable.Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Continue your wonderful blog!
Denim has always been a staple in my life. I’m 62 yrs old and still love my jeans!!! And denim dresses are so cute! I would LOVE to see more styling ideas with denim. I’m hearing that skinny jeans are on their way “out” ,which I’m glad about, so I’d also like to see the new styles of jeans paired with shirts, tee shirts, etc.
Thanks so much and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
I love the dressing room diaries and how you show us to elevate our everyday style.
I enjoy your blog a lot! In the upcoming year, I would like to hear more about your approach to keeping your wardrobe frsh & current. How do you approach shopping? Do you shop at each season – beginning and end of season? Do you still look at your wardrobe & give away things you do not waer in a year? Stuff like that!
Merry Christmas from North Carolina! I hope you enjoy this special season with your family and friends. I appreciate your creating this community that allows for comfortable conversation about fun topics like fashion and more serious topics about identity and health. Thanks for sharing and blessings on the year ahead.
Merry Christmas! I would like to see you wear an outfit that you normally would not wear, just step out of your comfort zone once in awhile and see if you like it. Explain why you would not normally wear an item. Accessorizing could be one way. Do the same outfit with different accessories side by side. I do like how you do the Dressing Room diary showing lines in different stores. I enjoy how you put your outfits together. I love reading about your travel.s
Picking up on Karen’s post about lipstick, I would love some advice on how to stop it feathering. Mine can look awful even using lip liner. Love your blog.
I like when you go to a store and try on several outfits so I can get a better idea of what looks good.
We are about the same height and weight.
It is hard to look at yourself in the mirror and gauge how you look objectively.
Merry Christmas! I enjoy your blog very much and putting outfits together is one of my favorite things you do. I would like to you to continue fashion for women who like to dress well and also any makeup and hair styling tips that you come across that would help mature ladies.
Good morning and Merry Christmas Jennifer. Enjoy the day with your family and here’s to a healthy, Happy New Year. I enjoy your posts especially since I can relate being a petite size also. Although, you’re a little taller and longer waisted than I. I would like to see more posts on how to choose the right accessories to complete an outfit, which necklines flatter different face shapes and choosing colors that compliment your complexion. Thank you.
Merry Christmas Jennifer. I read your blog daily and enjoy it so much. I woul like to read more abiut cosmetics . Thank you for your insight.
Hi Jennifer, I’m new here and really enjoy your blog. You are real and that is refreshing. I find you easy to relate to. You make me smile and you have great taste. Just keep it coming! I love to see your picks when you are in the dressing rooms. That is very helpful.
I enjoy things like yesterday’s post about how to minimize our aging looks. I think you do a wonderful job and thank you for sharing with us! Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas, Jennifer! I love your array of topics from fashion, make-up, family to handling life changes including not just good stuff, but challenges as well. I wonder about how the simple styles of Everlane, my current fave, could be adapted for us over 60s so we look fresh. Most of their models are young and tend to pull off basic [drab?] clothing. I love their clothes, but don’t want to fade away. Also, my lipstick never stays on. I’m a teacher and don’t get a chance to freshen up. Suggestions for those of us still working?
Good morning! I would like to see the occasional miss, when things didn’t work out as well. I think back to your vacation series where you got very tired of your capsule. I was still admiring your clothes but you knew and explained the challenge.
Thanks for all your work on these posts I enjoy learning from you. I like to look classy and fun but appropriate for my not 20 any more body. You deliver it perfectly.
I would love your humor and straight talk to continue. I love that you write about stress incontinence, thinning hair,
and other aging body issues we must embrace and do our best with. You make me laugh out loud some days.
Merry Christmas, Jennifer! I enjoy your blog just the way you do it. You have awesome advice and I probably glean more from your knowledge and experience than I do anywhere else. I can’t think of what I’d like to see more of, really.
