A Waist is a Terrible Thing to Waste

From Wall Street Journal Article - "The Quest for the Perfect Pants"
I decided to do a quick trouser inventory of my fall/winter pants last week.   Waaaaay in the back of the closet I found two pair of high (i.e., natural) waist pants that I must have had for over 15 years.  I had completely forgotten I still had them.

A Bright Coating for Fall

In a previous post (“My LittleWhite Jacket”) I expressed some mild surprise at the Pantone color choices this fall.  For me, they just didn’t seem to evoke the essence of the season.  Fall is all about cozy warmth and bright, burnished colors. 

This is more of what I had in mind for fall.

The deep, vibrant colors of autumn are the colors of the warm flush of romance and long walks with that special someone in a park ablaze with flame-colored trees.  Make the most of the experience by wrapping yourself in a bright fall coat.

A Very Special Honor!

Courtesy of Success for Solopreneurs
At the risk of tooting my own horn – TOOT!  TOOT! – I just had to share something really special with all of you. 

Cindy Swanson, creator of the brilliant Blog “Notes in the Key of Life” (I'm a regular reader!) recently took on quite a challenge.  This busy voice-over artist, radio personality, wife, mother and grandmother took up the Blogger “31 days” challenge to publish a post every day, on one topic, for 31 days.  Not as easy as it sounds! 

Cindy chose a subject near and dear to my heart – “Gracefully Aging.”

Would You Ask This Woman Out on a Date?

While surfing the web, the other day, I ran across a very interesting article on E Harmony (an online dating service) by Dating and Relationship Coach, Bobbi Palmer.  It was obvious to me that the points she made in her article, “Five Big Online Dating Profile Mistakes Made by Women over 40,” were applicable to any woman of any age looking for that special someone on the internet. 

In a nut shell, Palmer tells us that your Profile is your calling card, so make it count.  Avoid a boring laundry list of likes and dislikes; sell your qualities and what you can bring to the table; don’t be too needy (“I want to be totally devoted...”); don’t be too independent (“I really don’t need a man in my life to be happy, but…”); and don’t be negative or too serious.  Keep your profile fun and light with a dash of humor. 

But, what really caught my attention, was the picture that E Harmony chose to illustrate the article.

What’s in My Make-Up Compact?

In a previous post, “Put Your Best Face Forward for Spring,” I recommended the Laura Mercier 6-well Customizable Compact ($10).  Just pop in six of your favorite blush and eye shadow shades, and you are good to go.  No more hunting through your makeup drawer.   I never travel without it. 

Would you like to know what colors are in mine?

Scam Alert – Are You the Target?

Today, we’re going to take a little detour on the road to style, so that I can alert you to an updated version of an oldie but goodie in the ever-expanding world of computer scams.

Last week, I got an e-mail from someone named Dave Wayne.  Mr. Wayne requested information on my image consulting services for his 17-year-old daughter, Anna.  He was in the real estate/construction business in the UK, but his daughter would be staying with his sister in the US. 

Something seemed a bit “off” with the language.  For someone with such an obviously Anglo-Saxon name, it was obvious to me that English was not Mr. Wayne’s native language.  Still, it’s not unusual for me to get inquiries from people from other parts of the US and abroad, who want to book my services while they are in the area, so, I returned his e-mail and referred him to the “Services” page of my website.
