Three fashion stylists join the writer on a trek to find chic pieces for the 40-plus customer.
I'm about to go into the next decade, so for sure they meant me. I've been "40-plus" for quite awhile.
I was expecting some advice for real women. Instead the writer wrote:
"Although we didn’t work with a budget, we were strict with our choices; each piece had to be worth the money, as well as be age-appropriate, whether it was a $55 cardigan from Topshop or a $3,000 Rick Owens leather jacket."
"The Lim boutique, to our surprise, yielded a lot of affordable, well-made clothes, notably a tailored cream jacket ($550) and a silk jumpsuit ($450)."
"But, looking at a $1,400 silk print dress, Brana said with a rueful laugh, “I don’t know anymore if that’s expensive or not.” She decided that it was a good buy, along with a $2,100 metallic leaf-patterned coat at Marc Jacobs and a below-the-knee striped jersey dress with a long, winding sash."
"...at Diane Von Furstenberg, where Darina pulled out a beige suede coat ($885) and a flared olive cotton skirt with a canvas belt ($330)."
Next trip to New York, I'll just stick to my usual sales racks.
And for today's Health Tip, I suggest that you watch and listen to this. Be prepared to laugh. Remember that laughing is healthy!
