Dressed for Success


Most of you know my fabulous friend, Gigi!! Today she is modeling a skirt and blouse from the W by Worth Spring 2012 Collection. I am so in love with these pieces…the colors…the fit…the strong, chic look! She is rocking it!




Not only is she stylish, but, Gigi is the ultimate atelier…..an art instructor par excellence! Gigi believes that EVERYONE can draw, and she will accept no excuses. It is amazing what she is able to do with her students. Rodeo week is a huge event for them, because every year she has students who will win thousands of dollars for their Western paintings. One of her past students funded her entire Bachelor’s Degree with one painting. 


Gigi is one 50+ lady making a difference in the lives of others! She is a dear friend and the one who talked me into writing this blog!


Here are a few of my favorite Rodeo Art Paintings this year!

 
Such amazing talent from high school!!


Hey, everyone, I need more smiles!  Send me your smile and I will feature you in the sidebar at the top!  Smiling is our best accessory!!

  9. Wow, your blog is a great find! I'm in my 40s, not 50s, but I've been having a tough time finding fashion that is age-appropriate but not frumpy. Subscribing!

    Your friend is adorable. I greatly envy her style. :-)

    As a former art teacher I am with Gigi that anyone can draw- we all have the potential to create art in some fashion-be it painting, drawing, pottery.
    Her student's artwork is amazing!

  12. Gigi is so foxy, I love her in that leopard capelet! Yowza! And the paintings are just amazing, it's hard to believe high school kids did that caliber of work but I think that just shows what can happen when your art teacher believes in you and pushes you to go beyond what you think you can do. XO, Jill
