7 Sandal Trends For Spring/Summer 2015



I'm hunting for a new pair of sandals this spring. I'm am thinking I'd like to find a comfortable sandal with a small heel, 2"-3". I'm open to any stylish design, except one with an ankle strap--not a flattering look for me. I have no particularly color in mind--just not black. And lastly, I don't want to spend more than $125, if possible. I began to search online this week, but haven't settled on a pair. Still, I thought I'd share 7 sandal trends (in bold green) for 2015, along with examples, in case you, too, are shopping for a sandal with a low-ish heel and a moderate price tag.

If you like any of the sandals featured here, but not the color shown, click on the photo to see what other colors are available. For example, the Women's Bella Vita 'Leona' Slingback Sandal, Size 8 M - Blue, 2 1/4" heel ($89.95) comes in several different colors, including a jazzy black and white.

Spring Skirt: Great Style And, Yes, Good Length



Three years ago, Pauline Durban introduced Covered Perfectly, a collection of super comfortable, well-priced tops for women in sizes Small through Plus. The tops are designed to flatter the woman over 50 by covering her in all the right places. Flattering50 has followed the progress of the brand, reporting the addition of new top styles. Recently, I was asked if I'd like to review one of the brand's newest additions: skirts. Needless to say, I said "yes."

Lauren Bacall's Look: An Exhibit



Last week I stopped by the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York to see an exhibit celebrating the fashion and style of the late Lauren Bacall. The exhibit, Lauren Bacall: The Look, featured photos of the celebrated actress taken during her modeling career for fashion magazines, a display of her clothing by such designers as Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Cardin, and a clip from Bacall and the Boys, a 1968 television show in which she modeled fashions from the Paris fall collection. I've always been a big fan of Ms. Bacall's look and appreciated the opportunity to take a peek at some of her clothing. I snapped a few photos from the exhibit to share with you.
