Break Out of that Familiar Rut!

Fashion Show Style
from Dillards

“Buy a mirror…in fact, make that a three way mirror!” was Michael Quintanilla’s advice for women over 50. “You need to check yourself from head to toe before leaving the house.” The Express News fashion editor also wants this age group to have courage and break out of familiar ruts.

“I think fashion magazines scare some women, so they shut down and think they can never look that good. “ Ladies, give yourselves some credit, go for it!

Michael’s final spring trend for last Saturday’s fashion show was all about PRINTS! This spring look for high impact with digital, tribal, and floral prints. Wear them with a great pencil or a slimmer legged pant….a maxi dress or a skirt. Prints can be found in soft or vibrant colors, or if you are really brave, mix up the patterns. Michael loved many of the looks in this fashion show with bracelets to which he commented, “when it comes to bracelets, more is more.”

  1. beautiful top! i love peacock prints. the colors are always vibrant! i love a nice, bold print…will be looking to add some to my wardrobe in the next few months.

  2. You look beautiful! When I worked away from home I was always dressed well. Since my health challenges have me working from home it allows me to wear "comfy" clothes. This does not mean frumpy clothes, giggle. A very well done post my blogggy friend. Hugs!

  3. I love this advice. Even though I feel I know my style and what works on my body, I never want to stop experimenting. In fact, I just received a leopard print blouse that I ordered from Their online catalog has some pretty cute things that grown ups can wear. It is so outside my comfort zone that I almost sent it back. I'm glad I didn't because I am loving it. Thanks for these posts. You are really inspring me.
