Have you ever heard of Little Black dress? Because the “little black dress” is considered an essential piece to a complete wardrobe. Basically every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. What Little Black Dress is:...more
With Holiday parties right around the corner, it’s time to think about breaking out our favorite LBD (Little Black Dress). Each of us has our very own LBD that is the perfect combination of fit and personality. It’s the staple item in every woman’s closet. So, to be sure you rock your LBD this Holiday season, try adding one or more of these sculpting exercises to your routine!...more
Holiday parties are upon us and today I am excited to share with you one of my favorite (and so simple) recipes to bring along to a holiday potluck. Now I can't take credit for this recipe; in fact, my sister-in-law introduced it to me over two years ago at a football party (and my awesome sister helped me make it for today's blog), but I do love it and can vouch for how delicious it is!...more

I am a relentless advocate of the carefully edited closet; I believe that the pieces in your wardrobe should move easily from work to weekend and from day to evening. But I also believe that there are pieces -- yoga pants, for example -- that cannot do multiple duty (yoga pants are not dress up clothes, under any circumstances, ever). Most often, we are willing to buy super casual pieces that cannot be dressed up, but we balk at buying dressy pieces, because they can't be repurposed for the grocery or the office or the sofa.
Recession got you thinking that a party dress would be a frivolous purchase this holiday season? Understandable -- UNLESS you invest in a dress that you can wear beyond New Year's Eve. That takes your new LBD out of the "splurge" category and into the "investment" category.
But you have to buy the right dress, and you need a plan for wearing it on days when there's no party on your calendar. You know, on a regular old Tuesday.
Are you looking for a place to find your style? Do you have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear? Not interested in having a nineteen year old as your fashion mentor? Do you want to dress for the life you want in the body you have? Then come and join us at the fashion blog, www.glamourbylbd.com or the social network, www.fashionatforty.ning.com
It's funny how one's self-image tends to stay frozen in time. Your mind picks out a moment when you looked your best, sometimes a moment that occurred many moons (and many pounds) ago, and it goes through some kind of freezing process that crystallizes this warm memory into a mental ice cube tray where you can periodically pull it out of the figurative freezer of dreams and lick it with the symbolic tongue of delusion just to make sure it's still there.
Or something like that.
Chris cleaned out her closet this week and had some really good insights into why we wind up with so many of the wrong things in our wardrobes.
I think part of my problem with clothes is buying things I like, but that a) don’t match anything else I own, b) don’t really fit right, or c) don’t fit my lifestyle. Sadly the last one means coming to terms with the fact that as much as I like blouse type shirts for winter I will NEVER wear them. No more telling myself, “Well, maybe I might wear it if ”
No, Chris, when the temperatures are sub zero you will NOT wear that blouse type shirt, no matter where you are going.
