Fashion Trends: Yay or Nay?

This is a question I encounter a lot … “Can I wear that at my age?” And its a subject of debate and much discussion amongst Image Consultants. The thing is, there is no right or wrong answer per se. What works for one woman would be totally wrong on another. Let’s take an example…

Holiday Wear (part deux)

On holiday, as I have mentioned before, one makes comparisons. And now I put to you this comparison to consider. French vs American Style As an American who has lived overseas now for over 10 years, I feel I can make an objective assessment on this issue. Further, I felt it would be a lively…

Ode to Nostalgia

Every time I go to a summer festival or head to vintage store, I see them, these women ( and occasionally, men too) who have totally given over to dressing in a particular time era.
