Stepford or Santa?

This lovely red shift dress from Damsel In A Dress, ticks lots of boxes. Nice cheery colour to put you in the Christmas mood and a figure skimming shift to make room for those extra mince pies! Think it looks a little like something a Stepford wife might wear with its amazing cut-out sleeves but will certainly impress Santa when he comes down the chimney….xx


Fairy At 50

Back in the changing rooms and trying on this teal blue 3/4 sleeve dress from Phase 8 ...fitted bodice is flattering and with ruffles it gives a lovely floaty fairy feel …just make sure  you don’t get stuck on top of the Christmas Tree! xx

Victoria Beckham In My Bedroom

Thought I should try the sultry Victoria Beckham ‘pout’ in this dress by Isabel de Pedro with a hint of Beckham style …flattering long sleeves with a statement collar to draw attention away from any lumps and bumps and a gorgeous deep red to get you in the Christmas mood ….perfect for the red carpet – well,maybe just queuing at the cinema?…. keep an eye on my blog soon to check out those party age- appropriate dresses! xx

Morticia or Madonna?

Friday night and the ‘Little Black Dress’  is out – but is it more Morticia than Madonna?  Long sleeves with their own bat wings to draw attention from those bingo wings! …. nobody is ever too old for the  faithful LBD.  Thanks for dropping by again to my over 50s fashion blog – hope you are being at least a little bit inspired….Annie xx
