After turning 50, as always, I wanted to dress stylishly, with a little bit of edge, but chic. Now that I’m 57, comfort is at the top of my list. I don’t like to think too much about what to put on. I look for timeless pieces that work for my on-the-go lifestyle and love mixing them with a few trendy pieces, that reflect my own personal style. If it makes you feel fabulous, wear it!
