Hi Deborah & JoJami,
I follow your blog all the time even though I’m well over 40, actually 67 but I like to be thought of as somewhat fabulous. I’ve love some help with my upcoming 50th High School Reunion. Dress is “business casual”? I sew and I made a jacket (reunion pic#6) for the occasion but I think it’s a little too much. So, I’ve been going through my closet to find something more comfortable and appropriate. Your help would be much appreciated and paying for a consult fine with me.
P.S. You have my permission to post my question and these photos on your site.
You are certainly fabulous and we are happy to share your photos!
: I like your photo#5 with the long grey sweater because it shows off your adorable figure and is the most youthful looking, but I also think you look stunning in the gold jacket and it would make you stand out in a crowd. If you did go with the gold jacket I think it needs a different shoe. The rounded toe seems a little too casual so maybe one with a little heel and more of a pointy toe.
:I agree. The long grey sweater looks chic, but the gold jacket is pure Glam! Either would look great. I also love the smart olive green jacket with the cuffs but I wouldn’t wear it for the reunion – not enough color. As for the long black skirt in # 1, I suggest you retire that, as it is matronly compared to these other cute outfits. The white jacket #6 – yes I agree too much. Also the jacket seems to make your arms look rather short and makes you look heavy up top, at least in this photo. Leslie, you are beautiful and a real inspiration. Have fun and we hope we’ve helped. What does everyone think Leslie should wear?
