Style Over 50: A Vest Above the Rest

Vest for women over 50

These days, I'm on the lookout for longer tops--sweaters, tunics and, yes, vests. Tops that end at the hips tend to accentuate the hips, the bottom and thighs. Who needs that? So...when Pauline Durban, founder of the clothing company Covered Perfectly, wrote to say she'd added a Cascading Vest (above) to her collection, I was excited. As the name suggests, the Cascading Vest is a draped piece that falls well below the hips, creating a flattering look for women over 50. Psst! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for a special Covered Perfectly offer for Flattering50 readers.

New Fall Socks: Rich Colors, Vivid Designs

Is it too early to start talking about fall? Believe me, I have no desire to hurry time. Time is moving much too fast already. companies are beginning to share their Fall 2014 collections and I'm seeing garments and accessories that I think might jump start my fall wardrobe. One such company, Ozone, recently sent me three pairs of stunning socks from its Fall 2014 collection.

Living in the Northeast, I wear socks a lot--9 out of 12 months. I get pretty tired of wearing ho-hum black, navy or grey socks day after day. So...I'm always on the lookout for socks with personality--even if I'm the only one who sees them. If you feel the same, you might like to take a peek at the fall sock collection at Ozone. The company has a large collection of gorgeous, colorful socks. Take, for instance, the pair of Floral Angora ($14.00) I'm wearing (above and below). The socks, which are made in France, are decorated with bright flowers, dots and...a row of purple beetles.

Still Learning: Videos About Women, Older & Younger

Sometimes, I feel like I'm the last to learn about a recent media event or endeavor. In case I'm not, I'd like to share two videos with Flattering50 readers.

The first is a music video, entitled "Older Ladies," by Donnalou Stevens. Donnalou sings about love at a certain age. It should pick up the spirits of any woman over 50 who is feeling a little low about her changing appearance. Not only does Donnalou have a great voice, but her lyrics are clever and humorous. And I mustn't forget her wonderful backup singers--what a fun bunch!  This video made me laugh out loud. If you haven't seen it, take a peek...
