Here’s my weekly round up of reader photos. Let see what they wore!
Chic for Less
Diane, 49, sent me a picture of a milestone moment, her daughter’s high school graduation. Diane is proof that there’s no need to spend a ton of money to look great. Diane paired a plain, black cotton one-shoulder dress with an inexpensive statement necklace. The necklace adds a beautiful pop of color. Diane didn’t spend a fortune on her outfit, but she looks like a million bucks!
A Royal Graduation
Cindy, 44, was a guest at a military ball when her son recently graduated from Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario. She says it took a while to find the right dress. “It was very hard for me to find a dress that looked good on me and made me look like a mom. All the dresses I had found were very sexy and not what I was looking for at all.”
Cindy didn’t want a dress that was strapless or slinky or exposed too much. This midnight blue ruched evening party dress shows off Cindy’s slender arms. Cindy, you look lovely!
Nikki, 51, and her husband recently returned from a cruise. She sent me a picture of the two of them enjoying an “elegant night” in the dining room. Nikki is wearing one of spring’s hottest trends, the cold shoulder or cut-out dress. Very classy, Nikki!
Mother and Daughter Modeling Team
After many years thinking about it Maria is now determined to make her dream come true. Maria is a mom of three from Ottawa, Canada.
She writes, “I love my children very much, and I want to show them that by taking care of yourself anything is possible. I always wanted to be a model. I did model in my hometown. I want to make this dream come true. I am 46 years old. I cycle to work daily and try to exercise whenever I find the time.
I never really thought about my looks, but I get compliments about my age and recently it is quite a lot. I then started to realize that I can make a difference in how others my age feel. We may be over 40 but we can still look and feel great, and I want others to see this.
Can you please post his photo of my daughter and I. Maybe an opportunity will arise? It’s never too late to go for your dream!”
You said it Maria- Best of luck!
Fun and Funky Casual Dressing
Reva’s version of casual is artsy and playful. She’s paired a hot pink cardigan for her “over 40 arms” with a twenties style hanky-hemmed dress, and added some fun pink socks and a newsboy cap for a very funky look.
So many readers, so many different looks! Thanks.
