I love awards season.  The dresses, bad red carpet interviews and train-wreck outfits make up for the bloated self indulgent show itself.  This is the first year I've blogged about the SAG awards fashion,  and there were a large number of women over 40 to review.

I've been following Solo Lisa for quite some time now. She is a local Vancouver fashion blogger and I really love her posts.  Yes, she is a younger blogger.

I recently saw a comment from a young blogger that her generation is more creative or interested in unique individual fashion items than in the past.  I disagree.  I believe each generation is looking for their own unique stamp.   It is certainly true of me when I was in high school in the 80s.  In High school […]


The fashions at last night's People's Choice Awards are a lot more casual than the rest of the awards season. And that made for a lot of pretty dresses, but  it also made it kind of boring.   No Bjork Swan dresses or see-through Liza Minelli tops here.   There were a fair  number of pretty, bright, "ice cream flavour" […]
