Drumroll, please! It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for, the announcement of the Grand Prize Winner of my Spring 2013 fashion trends contest!
It was a tough decision, but in the end, I let my readers do the talking. It’s time to let the cat out of the bag! Here is the champion:
Winner #1 Simply Green Shopping by Barbara Gillespie
My readers went gaga over this casual summer outfit that combined many of the spring trends I’ve have been talking about here at Fabulous After 40. What was it about this particular outfit that so many of you adored? I’d love to know.
My guess is that this very cute outfit took first prize because of its simplicity. It’s an easy to wear an outfit that looks pretty simple to pull together. It’s versatile and could be worn many places if you have a casual lifestyle, as so many of us do. It also looks pretty darn comfortable ( although a lower wedge- same style might be better for some of you with tender tootsies).
Barbara started with a classic, dark wash Hudson jean, which you can never go wrong with. If you are going to wear blue jeans, they look classiest when they are dark, fresh and unmarked by whiskers, rips or fading. The dark blue color and the classic boot-cut of the jean also make these very flattering for any 40+ figure.
Everyone wants to have a cute figure, and this tie waist top will accent your waist, or give you the illusion of a waist if you don’t have one. It’s a keeper.
Stripes have been a big hit this spring, but can make you look wide if you have a lot of weight up top. That’s why this sporty Kate Spade purse is a great find. When you want to get in on a trend in a smaller way, an accessory is s good way to do it.
The canvas espadrilles in this grass green shade say summer, and the fun studded stretch cuff bracelet and pretty circle stone double drop earrings dress the whole outfit up without going overboard.
Barbara, Congratulations for being the grand prize winner! You lucky gal. You have won a Fabulous Top from Fabrizio Gianni.
Thanks for participating in my Spring Fashion trends contest.
