Who?

I am a writer and an editor with experience in both advertising and publishing. I’m also a collaborative author, working primarily with celebrities in the fields of fashion, design, style, and food. In addition, I do developmental editing for books that span a diversity of subjects. Essentially, I write some books with other folks, some books for me, and lotsa books for people who like the fact that I know where the commas go.

  1. Nice post! Yes, the women you mention (along with their photos) are stylish and graceful. I think what aggravates a lot of people is to see a 60+year old woman running around in with a long ponytail – grey, no less!

    In my latest book, “Entering the Age of Elegance: A Rite of Passage & Practical Guide for the Modern Maturing Woman”, I quote Tim Gunn and others who have some definite thoughts on what is becoming for the older woman.

  2. I am into a real skull obsession lately. I like my skull shirts, shoes and even a pair of my jeans. I feel comfortable in these clothes, though every once in a while I ask myself if these cloths are too young for a young 52 year old. Thoughts?

  3. Kate,

    I think an individual’s ability to pull off a youthful look hinges partly on how natural she looks in it. I once saw a 50+ woman on Rodeo Drive in dark-wash skinny jeans and purple Converse hightops–a very youthful outfit–and she looked fabulous. The reason: it suited her body and she was obviously very confident to be dressed that way. I’ve also seen women in less-than-age-appropriate outfits whose expressions just scream, “This isn’t me!” That’s when failure is inevitable.

    If you feel good in your skull garb, it’s likely that it shows, so that helps. The key here is moderation. If you have a yen to wear your skull shirt, don’t team it with your skull jeans or shoes. Wear only one such item and make it your statement piece. Keep it relatively subtle, not LOOK AT ME!, and you’ll be fine. And let’s face it: over the top doesn’t work at any age.

    xo,
