Welcome to a fun collaboration with Jennifer of A Well Styled Life and Pam of over50feeling40. We desire for all of us… the fabulous women over 50 …to look and feel our best each and every day. After years of blogging for this audience, we have heard from so many of you about your discouragement and despondency when you look in the mirror every morning. But, we both know just how transformative style can be, and hope to encourage you right here each week. We want to see all of us empowered with strength, joy, and confidence.
Cold weather time seems perfect for a discussion about
our favorite fabrics over 50, because we are so aware of
it touching our skin!
There are many fabrics I love during this time of my life
and I know I love quality...it does make such a difference
in the feel, the fit, and the longevity of the garment.
There are many different price points for quality...it takes
research, trying things on, and true shopping skills.
For example, today I am wearing three fabrics I love:
The Pants...Eileen Fisher 56% Rayon, 38% Nylon, 6% Spandex
The Long Tunic...Eileen Fisher 100% silk
The Jacket...CHICOS also, rayon, nylon, and spandex
But, I confess to also loving leathers, knits, cotton, wool...the fabrics must breathe, feel soft, and fit! You also may want to read about what Eileen Fisher says on the topic of SUSTAINABLE FABRICS HERE. I always feel good when I wear her clothing! But, I do have many favorite brands when it comes to fabrics and wear them often here. Fabric plays a major role in my purchasing decision.
What are some of your favorite fabrics and why? Please share and then go see JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE to discover what choices she loves!
My two favorite Christmas decoration fabrics are found in
plaid and burlap...yes, I said, burlap!
