If Judy Goss looks familiar it’s because, she is! For years Judy was a top Ford model gracing runways and magazine covers. She then went on to become an editor and TV spokesperson for More Magazine.
Today Judy is the founder and driving force behind Over 40 females a nationwide networking group that connects, encourages and inspires its members. I have known Judy for several years and every time I see her she looks so gorgeous and pulled together that I asked her to share her fashion sense with us.
Deb: Judy – How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style swings from jeans and cowboy boots to red carpet outfits, depending on what my schedule is for the week. If I had a choice? I would live in jeans and fun, funky tops with boots on every day…and flip flops in the summer.
Deb: As the founder of Over 40 Females, you have a busy life. Tell us a bit about the 3 looks you sent in and where you wore them?
Look # 1 – Red Carpet
I wore this outfit to the We Are Family HONORS Gala. I love this look because I feel chic, but it’s still comfortable and just a teensy bit sheer.I was on crutches at this celebrity-studded event, so I wanted to look dressy but could not wear heels, so tried to combine the look with funky footwear and a delicate, sparkly tunic that had a lot of room so I could walk on my crutches without ripping any fabric.Photo credit: Mark Von Holden
Look #2 – Work
I wore this dress to one of our Over 40 Females networking events.This blue, green, and white dress is great in the spring/summer, and I can barely feel it on my skin because it’s so stretchy and comfortable, but at the same time eye-catching with the pattern.A French-born designer named Dolita made this dress for me. She is famous for her stretchy fabrics that fit any size. I wore this one w/ nude high-heeled sandals, and didn’t complicate the look with any jewelry.
Look # 3 – Charity Event
This purple dress is another Dolita favorite of mine. The dress is flippy and fun, and the purple matches the color of my company’s logo.It makes me feel regal and girlie all at the same time, and is a great dress to wear in the summer or winter with a short cashmere shrug. I chose it for a charity event in NYC.
Deb: What’s the best style tip you ‘ve ever received?
If you’re not sure about an outfit going together or looking “right” when you leave the house, rock it out with confidence and no one will wonder about it, or change it before you go out the door. Feeling your best is sometimes more important than trying to get the perfect outfit.
