    SS 2018-Mix and Un-Match?
    After watching well over 100 fashion "fashion week" runway shows for SS 2018, I have certainly got the message regarding this season's use of color;  basically. almost ANYTHING goes for color or pattern matches !! Now, having said that, I find it is a season where almost anyone can find delightful combinations within their own wardrobe (or with a judicious added item or two) to create some ensembles that will really be fun to wear; after all, fashion should be fun, flattering, and readily

    Closet Collection-SS 2018
    As mentioned in an earlier post, I have begun to "curate my closet" to add new wardrobe combinations to my existing wardrobe.  I have already identified six new combinations that I can't wait to wear!  If the weather continues it extremely hot spell (114 on Saturday!!!!), I just may get a head start on fashions that I expect will be worn during the next Spring/Summer fashion season!   It is always a lot of fun for me to re-mix clothing that is already in my closet to make new and exciting

    Aging and Beauty; ..and Hats
    Well, Summer is almost over....although with the Bay Area temperature over 100 degrees in every city (111 in Morgan Hill), it is difficult to imagine that Fall and Winter are just around the corner.  Personally, I am SO over the hot weather; I can't wait to see a change in the weather; hopefully, it will be another wet year and we will not have to suffer drought conditions again.  I must admit that It is difficult to complain at all when I think of the tragedy that is occurring in our neighbors

    It's That Time Again! Closet Curating Fall, 2017.
    I just received my September 2017, Vogue fashion bible for the latest and greatest of fall/winter style. (125th anniversary issue is beautiful!)  It was also quite a reminder that it is time to rid my closet of all spring/summer items that I need to get rid of, or, perhaps alter, "wait and see", or donate.  At this time, my 'get rid of' pile will consist of only those items that can no longer be worn because of wear and tear.  These will be put in the garbage (or made into cleaning rags).  I

    Mature Fashion: Commercialism versus Style
    I am astounded that so many fashion blogs have moved their fashion priorities from "style" to, dare I say it?...simply, "merchandising" the latest fashion rage! Personally, I have been appalled at some of the ensembles that are being presented by 'stylist' bloggers as "fashionable dressing" when the ensemble is simply a 'hot mess'!!  NO, NO, NO...."everything" (or is it "anything") simply does NOT go with whatever garment is closest to hand.!  You may have designed a wardrobe that ensures that

    Rocking the 4th
    For my post this month, I wanted to celebrate the importance of our holidays in connecting with friends and families, always remembering that friends are the families we make for ourselves if we have no other. Although I am particularly affected by the usual hot weather of summer, I have always enjoyed the 4th of July; the picnics, fireworks, and general bon homme that usually exists on that day.  I would like to share my and some of my rocking age friends celebration with you, the reader.

    Hippie Chick Tea Party
    I mentioned in my last post that I was going to take a short break from the blog during these early summer months; I need a little time to catch up on a few long awaited household projects....and....a little time to "Rock My Age"!! One of my annual social events is our ladies tea party.  I usually hold it in March or April but this year I had it a little later because of other conflicting social and household obligations.  June 10th, the date I selected for the tea was the 50th anniversary of

    Mature Fashion & Lifestyle
    We are having the craziest weather lately; it reached 92 degrees one day last week followed by two days where the temperature never reached 70!!  It does appear that we are having more days that could be called "summer".  Needless to say, most of us are actually wearing our late Spring and early Summer clothing.   I have been very busy re-decorating my garden patio (actually, changing out some silk plants for live plants, now that we actually have water again) and planting the summer annuals

    Mature Fashion: Mexico City Adventures
    I'm just back from my Mexico City vacation!  Although we had some wonderful times, unfortunately, I cannot say that everything went smoothly. The first day we were picked up from the airport by our good friends and adopted family, Tom and Luis, who have generously made me a collective "Mother-in-law" and Mother of the Groom (it's a long story!) and took us to our first of several truly wonderful meals...Mexico City has everything..(except potable don't drink the  tap water in
