Some of you may already know my other blog, Images by T.Dashfield, and have seen the world as I’ve photographed it. My blog here will still feature my photography or maybe I should say hubs doing the photography and me doing the editing but on the fashion tip for us fly foxy over fifties – or anyone at any age. Hey! being a fashion diva has no age limitations.
While I didn’t understand the fashion concept as a child, mom wanted to dress up her little girl as nicely as she could even if – when going through my tomboy phase – I was very hard on clothing. I once hid a pair of pants I tore while jumping a fence so she wouldn’t ground me. The fashion bug bit when I entered high school and it’s been with me ever since.
I’ve rolled with the trends ever since including the easily washable and “practical” clothing during the early child rearing days but never mom jeans! Now I’ve reached a stage in life where I know what I like, what works on me and what is a good deal. Three important fashion things I’ve learned: 1. If you find anything you love and it fits well – get it in at least one other color – especially shoes. 2. Getting your clothing tailored to fit you is worth the money; if you find a good person/shop to do it KEEP THEM! 3. As soon as you throw or give away something it will trend again. Ok! That last one isn’t a hard and fast rule but I’ve seen it happen 😉
