JJill November Collection: Perfect for the Midlife Woman

In Stacy London’s excellent book, THE TRUTH ABOUT STYLE, she tackles women who have specific styling challenges.  One beautiful over 50 woman felt like her age and body type was limiting her choices so much so, she just could not find clothes anywhere to purchase.

Stacy countered with “nine times out of ten this means they don’t know where to look.”  I also believe it means they don’t know how to shop or what they are trying to accomplish with their clothes.   In true Stacy fashion, she counsels to stop “being mad about aging.  There’s no point.”  Wear your years proudly.

She is so right!  When we let go of anger over age or weight or height, and decide to look our best with what we have right now and where we are right now, then we see there are many places to shop!!  The clothes are there, ladies.  We only have to decide what messages we want to send with what we wear.  Also, it does take time to get out and try things on.  You have to seek your favorite retailers as treasure and know where the clothes are which fit you best.

One of my favorite places is JJILL.  I am wearing selections from the CURRENT COLLECTION and they are perfect for my lifestyle.  I am so into their PONTE KNIT PENCIL SKIRTS with the JJILL MICROFIBER TIGHTS; and love the GRAY ASHLEY TUNIC SWEATER...plus THIS BLUE BERKSHIRES COAT is gorgeous. The Compassion Scarf is such a perfect gift for the holidays for you or someone on your list.  J. Jill’s Compassion Fund Scarf,is beautifully designed with floral details that complement the collection’s color palette and continues to benefit women in need with 50% of proceeds donated to local organizations nationwide to help homeless and disadvantaged women regain their self sufficiency. It also is a great gift for the holiday's that gives back!
Add JJILL to the list of retailers to visit while you seek your personal, I-Feel-Great-About-Me-Style!

  14. Thanks for the reminder about J.Jill being a great option for over 50 shoppers. Love the Berkshire coat on you.

  15. Wanted to thank you for suggesting J. Jill - I had never purchased from them and did so because of your article. I purchased a Pure Jill Angled Hem top, ankle leggings and the compassion fund scarf. Love everything! The leggings are so comfortable and the top is perfect with them. The scarf goes with so many things in my wardrobe. It is wonderful that they have 'tall' sizing - this is a problem at brick and mortar stores. Thanks so much!
