We all have role models. And, mine is my Nana Edith who lived In Style and with ageless confidence and a spring in her step into her 90's. When I catch a glimpse of myself eating cleanly, walking the stairs a few extra laps, listening with full intention and using my Ponds Cold Cream at night - I smile and thank my Nana Edith. I know I carry her with me everywhere for inspiration, strength and a sense of humor.
So, it's not the celebrities and actresses who are my role models but they add to my arsenal of aging power when they embrace their age publicly, which many more do now.
More and more celebs who are over 50 and 60 and beyond are now talking about their age on social media and many marvel that they are in their later decades and feel playful, wiser and sexy. How is that not good for we BA50's?
Recently I saw a photo of Alison Janney on her instagram in a red bathing suit and it made me smile. Forgive me that her IG post is a few years old, but I just found it. Janney, in her early 60's by now is as inspiring as ever.
So, many women hate the bathing shopping ordeal so I decided to fetch a few more for you all after seeing Allison Janney in her fabulous red one piece. Here's what a little surfing turned up -- pardon the pun!...
Jennifer Coolidge's White Lotus super star at 61 is everywhere and BA50s love her. Hilarious and glamorous, Coolidge's character Tanya has revived Elizabeth Taylor's 1950 signature Kaftan. Who thought the Kaftan could look so incredible? By the way, Kaftan is spelled with a "C" or a "K" so either works.
Jennifer wears dresses, wild empire waists dresses with big cleavage affects, flowy plunging decollete Kaftans, verging on the Moo Moos of yore. Crazy prints and floral colors are her main stay. Hard to say if this fashion trend will catch on but perhaps. I mean the Beverly Hills house wives seem to love them. Here's two great videos with Coolidge that are mesmerizing. Let's look at these and then if your in the mood we have some Coolidge style White Lotus Kaftan fashion finds for you....
Aritizia did not hire me to write this post. I actually got off the subway on Spring Street in NYC and, captivated by their windows, walked right into their store. I couldn’t believe the styles and the prices and I was thrilled to find hip fashion that had plenty of options for BA50s at a fair price.
Here’s what I bought and wear all the time.
I bought the Wilfred Belize Cardigan in Gray.... See the Products Below on This Newsletter to shop directly and get Black Friday Sales Prices...
