Still Learning: Quilt Artist Depicts a Textile Laborer

This post may seem a little far-flung for a blog about style choices for women over 50. However, since launching Flattering50, my interest in fashion and style has grown to include many aspects of the fashion industry, including such things as the environmental impact of clothing manufacturing, fair trade practices, and the working conditions for garment makers. Recently, I visited the Museum of Art and Design in New York City. In an exhibit entitled "Collection," each artwork appears to be made of certain materials, but in reality, is made of very different materials. I found myself drawn to a large artwork, entitled Portrait of a Textile Worker (above and below), by Terese Agnew.

Giveaway: Sunscreen and Skin Repair in One

While the dear old summer may be ending in just a few weeks, the need to protect your skin from potential sun damage is never-ending. Dermatologists recommend we apply a product with SPF to our skin year-round. Recently, I learned of a new product called Regenica® Renew SPF 15 that is formulated to offer SPF protection and skin repair benefits. How great does that sound?!? Through Sunday, August 31st, a bottle of Regenica® Renew SPF 15 ($175 for 1.5oz) is being given to one lucky winner each day. Scroll down to learn how you can enter for a chance to win.
