Leather jackets and I just don’t seem to mix very well. However, in the past year I have been contemplating on buying one just because the variations or choices, I should say, are pretty enticing. Besides, leather jackets work well in San Francisco throughout the entire year and especially (at the rate we are going with the weather) this year.
By the way, leather jackets are great mother’s day gifts as well for the trendy woman who enjoys dressing up a pair of designer jeans or complementing a pair of khakis.

I love casual days at work or the chance where I can actually go out on a Friday night wearing a pair of jeans. However, finding the right jacket to wear with the jeans when opting for a more casual look is often times difficult for the woman over 40.
The idea is not to wear something too dressy and yet not too casual or sporty. Also, often times the jackets suggested are too youthful as well and the best or only choices for the over 40 crowd are waste length leather jackets.
So for this particular struggle, I have searched high and low and have come up with a few affordable jackets to consider for pairing with a nice pair of jeans. Let me know what you think?

Although it may seem a bit early to think about Spring fashion, since most of us can’t seem to stay warm enough during this Winter season, in reality it is actually the perfect time. Well, maybe not from the consumers point of view, but for sure from the retailers perspective.
So with that seed being planted in your minds, I have included some photos of the Spring 2011 collection from the various designers for your viewing pleasure. Check them out and tell me what you think?
Also, in the next few weeks I will be discussing the fashion trends in great detail, so stay tuned!

I know I have stated before, if all else fails, consider the color black in fashion. Believe me a woman over 40 can seldom go wrong with the choice of color, because no matter how self-conscious she may feel about her figure, black has a way of smoothing out the edges.
However, choosing age appropriate black dresses or gowns is very important for the woman over 40 because, selecting the wrong cut, length or style , can surely be the most damaging.
Since choosing the dress or gown is a hit or miss in some or most cases, I have included one of my favorite designer’s website here to help guide the process. I have also included some of my favorite selections (below) from the site to consider or duplicate (depending on one’s budget) for that special soiree. Enjoy and let me know what is your favorite gown from the selection.

There is nothing like visiting New York during the holiday season, in my opinion, to sort of reconnect with the past and do some good old fashion shopping and dining.
In the midst of this romantic destination (only during the holiday season, mind you), I have included one of my favorite boutique hotel picks to consider, just in case you are up to the adventure. It is none other than the classic and mostly unique Soho Grand Hotel Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Now here is another topic I have difficulty incorporating into my everyday life and conversation – haute couture – best described by fashionera.com as being a French phrase for high fashion. Couture means dressmaking, sewing, or needlework and haute means elegant or high, so the two combined imply excellent artistry with the fashioning of garments. The purchase of a haute couture model garment is at the top level of hand customised fashion design and clothing construction made by a couture design house. A model haute couture garment is made specifically for the wearer’s measurements and body stance. The made to measure exclusive clothes are virtually made by hand, carefully interlined, stay taped and fitted to perfection for each client.
A haute couture could cost anywhere from 20K to whatever the price may be for the exclusively created masterpieces by the best of the best fashion designers. I have included a slideshow of some of the most interesting of styles for 2010 from the likes of Christian Dior, J. Galliano, Chanel, John Paul Gultier and more. Enjoy!
