Did you know, wearing texture, reduces the appearance of facial
wrinkles texture on the woman over 50? It does and it’s a simple trick I use often. The older I get, the more texture I add to my tops! Pattern does the same thing. I only wear pattern in scarves. Which works because they’re worn near my face. This week I’m sharing my newest top with texture.
Style has the power to transform your confidence. Working from the outside in, women can boost their confidence by hitting their Style Sweet Spot. Pam Lutrell and I began this new series to help and inspire those women who are struggling with their appearance. Each week we choose a scenario from our daily lives to show why, what and how we dress to reach our style sweet spot. Your style sweet spot is when you feel confident about your appearance and know you are sending the message you want people to see.
Last week Pam and I dressed for retirement living. This week we’re going to a baby shower. The last shower I went to was for my daughter-in-law. Most showers I go to these days are for the Grandmother to be, my friends.
The trend is for young mothers to be registered so they get what they want. I’m old-fashioned. I like to give hand-knit baby things. I gave these at my girlfriend’s shower for her daughter. She was having twins!
I chose to wear my new Babette Dress, from Artful Home. It’s called the Zigzag Combo dress.
The elbow length sleeves help the petite woman (me) appear taller. It has permanent, broomstick pleats at the waist, to slim my shape, and fun zigzag pleats at the bottom. I love that Babette is designed and made in the U.S.A.! It’s perfect for traveling. Hand wash and hang to dry.
I chose to wear it with slim black pants and low heeled, suede shoes. The low vamp and peep toe on this shoe help my legs appear longer.
I’m wearing a necklace in my eye color which coordinates with this dress.
STYLE TIP~ Wearing your eye color makes you appear more trustworthy.
