Salute Spring with Creative Wonder
March 03, 2017
Hello All,

The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness the human soul is apt to revive also. -- Harriet Ann Jacobs at BrainyQuote

I'm saluting spring by noticing the creative wonder of nature and springing forward with my own creative efforts for Fashion After 50.

A decoration of varied buntings recently darted in and out among the branches of the grand tree outside my small third-floor lanai. You can hear their trills here and get a sense of their dark blue beauty. This morning, a red-headed woodpecker briefly flapped past with its distinctive call like the cartoon Woody Woodpecker.

Fashion After 50 is coming alive again, too.

Readers have asked for fashion suggestions for each of the fashion archetypes. Way back in 2008, I did this. I couldn't keep up with products vanishing. Now, there is a new tool for displaying fashions. I've tried it out on the pages for Sophia and Hestia. I hope you like it. Fashion After 50 exists because of the small commissions -- pennies on each dollar -- when readers shop at the affiliate merchants.

Other updated pages:



  • Long sweater coat. So many beautiful styles to choose from. I used to be challenged to fill this category. Now the shop has more than one page. Look for the gray arrow and click it to see more stunning examples of this style that is so useful during transitional seasons.
  • .

  • Fashion dresses. I feature styles that have sleeves mostly. It is harder to avoid short hemlines are so abundant, and I do my best to cull the longer examples for you to review.


  • Wedding suits is one of the most-trafficked pages. I’m pleased to have full galleries for spring when the page is especially popular.


  • Professional suits

  • Tunic tops

  • Romantic blouse

  • Chic pants

  • Clothing for mature women -- This page has the least change and offers a general overview with links to other site pages.


  • RECOMMENDATION

    Sylvia at 40+ Style has lots of photos of how other real women like us are experimenting with style combinations.
