  1. I think this post hits on the issue of how to dress and we go into our 60s and beyond. We get those awful liver spots on our hands starting even in our 50s ! What clever magic to use large accesories to pull the eye to the ring or bracelet and away from the hands. Also her whole outfit radiates an attitude that says “I’m here – I’m older – and I’m fabulous !”. Advanced Style is a great site. Thanks for sharing it :)

  2. Fabulous! You should feature more successful second hand shoppers. Stylish, creative, inexpensive and ecological!
