Flattering50 Giveaway: Enter for a Chance to Win Swimwear



Yesterday, I wrote about my experience ordering a new tankini from SwimSpot. It was a great shopping experience and I'm thrilled with my new tankini. Now SwimSpot would like to give one Flattering50 reader a chance to win swimwear of her choice valued up to $100.

SwimSpot offers high-quality swimwear from brands like Nautica and Athena. The site has a large collection of one-piece suits, tankinis (like the one above), swimdresses as well as cover up dresses, tunics, shorts and pants. Most garments come in either Sizes XS-L or 4-16.

SwimSpot: Stylish, Comfortable Swimwear



I suspect I'm not alone when I say I don't enjoy swimsuit shopping in department stores. I'm usually shopping for a new bathing suit at this time of year, when my body, particularly my skin, has yet to recover from the cold, moisture-zapping winter months. Needless to say, the fluorescent lights in the store fitting rooms aren't friendly to chalky, wrinkly skin. As a result, I'm a huge fan of buying swimwear online. I love trying on swimwear at my leisure under the softer, more forgiving lights at home. So when the folks at SwimSpot recently contacted me to see if I'd like to review a swimpiece from their online site, I jumped at the offer.

Style Forever: A New Book About Grown-Up Style



Are you over 50 and looking for style inspiration? I just finished reading Style Forever, a highly appealing style guide for grown up women by That’s Not My Age blogger Alyson Walsh. I say “highly appealing” because not only is Style Forever well-written and chocked full of helpful style tips, the ideas are conveyed with a healthy dose of humor in the form of personal anecdotes, inspiring quotes, interviews with clever women over 50, quick-to-digest lists, and lots of lovely whimsical illustrations. Truly, this is a book with something for every woman over 50 or as Alyson calls us, Generation FAB (Fifty And Beyond).
