Great Links I Found to Cool Info About Looking Great, or What I Do When I'm Sick

So. Yesterday I felt pretty crummy. Tired, wrung out, and coughing all day. Actually, that should be COUGHING. It wasn't so much the quantity as the quality, meaning, I didn't cough non-stop, but when I did cough it was powerful.


I took the time to do some hands-on internet research about fashion, style, clothing, and creating your image, and I'd like to share. (I've also told myself no more studying till I've digested what I've already learned.)

Here are some great places to go learn about style and fashion, especially if you're over forty:

Inside Out Style. I learned about Color and Value and Contrast and Proportion. And the gal there likes to put together outfits and show you what she means. Very helpful.

Of A Certain Age. Subtitled "Musings, Stylings and Inspirations for Grownup Women."

Real Style, Real People. Subtitled "AN AFFORDABLE AND REALISTIC TAKE ON STYLE! For those of us who've left our twenties in the dust, or thirties, or fourties..." My favorite thing on this blog is when she posts a photo of a celebrity and then a photo of how she recreated their great outfit.

And here's one I really like: Fabulous After Forty-- Fashion and beauty advice to help you Tweak Your Chic™. The two gals who write the blog are fashion savvy and enthusiastic, which is fun and encouraging, and they also publish a FREE bi-weekly e-zine that you can have sent to your inbox, which of course I have done.

I have written before about what I have learned about creating a wardrobe, and now I'm learning about how to have style. It's fun, even if a little overwhelming, and I'm determined to begin now to be the person I want to be in this second half of my life.
