Fitness Fashion

I doubt that I’ll ever tire of shopping for fitness wear. Given the fact that I never wake up and think, Oh, boy! I get to go to circuit training/spin/yoga/pilates today!, I have to find my motivation elsewhere…and I invariably find it in retail. It’s a clear and simple fact: if I have something fun to wear, it inspires me to get out the door.

I’m not necessary spending a small fortune on clothes to roll around on the floor and sweat in. I have some very cute leggings from JCP that cost between $10 and $25, which is very reasonable. I’ve bought cropped pants at Gap Body for about half what I pay at Lucy…and they’re apparently made by the same manufacturer. But then I saw these.



I found them while perusing the Lululemon site, and it was love at first sight. The color blocking is universally flattering, and the reviews say the colors are even more beautiful in person. I just may have to break my frugal rule and buy a pair.

Style: It’s Not Just for the Young

These photos were taken on an extraordinary Sunday afternoon in Napa. Pictured are my friends Hilary (left) and Kiky (right), and I’m in the middle. I’m sharing them here for several reasons:

  • The sky doesn’t get much bluer than this.
  • The joy in the three faces is almost tangible.
  • We each embrace our own style.
  • We are all over 60, proving that getting older doesn’t mean getting frumpy…or conservative…or boring…or invisible.

Life. Is. Good.

2013 Golden Globes

My inner fashion critic comes screaming to the surface during every awards show, and last night’s Golden Globe Awards were no exception. Here, in my humble opinion, are the hits of the evening:

Anne Hathaway in Chanel

Transitioning from best to worst, I think Tina Fey looked spectacular…Amy Poehler, not so much.


And the flops of the night:

Alyssa Milano

Jessica Chastain (The expression on the face of the woman behind her pretty much sums up my feelings about this dress.)

Halle Berry (mainly because the bodice of this dress makes her look as if her right boob is melting)
