I have much fun to bring you today!  First, meet a new retailer just here for stylish women of a certain age, CALI AND YORK!  Cali and York offer classic pieces designed with us in mind...elegant evening to casual selections!

As soon as I put this GOLD MANHATTAN JACKET on, my family agreed it is a keeper!

Beautiful fabric, embellishment, and tailoring.

I can see this piece really helping me when I need to be a bit more dressed up in the evening.

They also sent this fun
CARMEL COPPERS PENDANT NECKLACE...very light weight and beautiful design.

Here is another jacket for your consideration, THE THEATER JACKET...if you like embellishments, you might want to check this out.  They have many creative selections on their website, HERE...including new garments for FALL 2014!
