  1. Understated and elegant. I am loath to wear too much bling. I think it looks silly on more mature women, but all these ideas will work.. Nice article.

  2. These ideas are wonderful – all of them are good. I also love the idea of the brooch at the waist of the simple black dress. So elegant.

  3. Hi Deborah!

    Ooooh, I really like the ‘classy yet sassy’ look of-of these Sparkle and Shine ideas. The other day at the local consignment boutique I found two wonderful treasures in bright Velour fabric with lace and beading at the neckline. One is a deep pink, and the other is a sassy moss green. With plunging necklines, I plan to wear them with a basic black tee and jeans. For a dressier look: tops and silk tee with a pair of black pants or even a Velour skirt for the holidays. ~~ I felt like they were kind of over the top for me, so probably pretty good choices to liven up the fall/winter wardrobe. ;o)

    Thanks for some great ideas.

  4. Hi Deborah,

    I live on the other side of the world where we only get 2 seasons: rain or shine – mostly shine! Really glad that we don’t have to buy attire according to the seasons – they can be worn the whole year round.

    I’m going to recommend your sites to my girlfriends and relatives because your tips are still applicable no matter where we live!

  5. Another great post! Love it and I hereby confirm that I love your blog! I also get your newsletter and I follow you on Twitter too!
