Stylish things to know…

Fashion is what you buy

Someone called me a Fashion Diva this week.  I find that rather insulting, though I’m sure he didn’t mean anything by it (if he knows what’s good for him)…so, I’ve decided to make that term my own…a Fashion Diva…someone who happens to enjoy style and fashion and tries to share things she finds in a light, snappy manner, with her friends in her blog…and knowing many of my friends don’t like to read lengthy blogs, this one is chock-full of pictorial illustrations!

So I present to you…Stylish things to know…all in a snappy, visual blog!  You can save a picture onto your computer, to print the one that suits you, so you don’t have to print this entire blog…unless you really, really want to. 🙂

    a wealth of information!

    Why on Earth would you be averse to being called a fashion diva?
    I’ve been striving for such recognition, yet can only garner sympathetic looks and outright mirth.

      You are absolutely correct, Mike! And for the record, I do find you do be a fashion icon…and always love, love, love your blog!

    Wow! That was a lot of great information. Thanks!

    Great blog!
    Tons of useful fashion advice and information, not your typical fashion “do’s and dont’s” that you read everywhere else.
    Thank you,
    I found your info interesting and resourceful.

    I am very much impressed by the fashion knowledge and of course lots of common sense that for a while I thought that we lost in our everyday fashion world. Thank you for reminding us what class and feminity means in regards to fashion . We all love it !

    I just pinned nearly everything on this page! This is a very good collection of graphics, and you’re right: this is “snappy” rather than “lengthy” blog entry.

    Nice information. Timeless treasure! Love to see more updates..

    Absolutely awesome blog. I would like all my granddaughters to have this information. Perhaps, you could print some advice on how older women can dress younger without looking foolish. I would love some pointers.

    Not usually a fan of blogs, but this one was informative and fun! Because sometimes, middle aged women get lost in the world of fashion. Especially when its tailored to young and thin. Thanks for sharing!
