Shopping Tips for Chic Baby Boomer Women

how to get your own style from former personal shopper


[continued from page 1]

Look to Boden.com for classic, well-made clothes that are more expensive but are well made and can be worn season after season.  I trust Boden’s quality and am willing to spend more for it now and then.  Rue La La has clearance sales at the end of seasons with unbelievable prices but you have to be there as soon as they open at 11 EST.

What’s My Style?

I like to find odd pieces, a funky dress or an ornate jewelry piece that looks vintage, and build an outfit by adding things from my own closet.  It’s surprising how quickly your wardrobe can be revitalized by pairing up things you already own but never thought to put together.

My All Time Favorite Place to Shop

My all time favorite store is Anthropologie's and their sale racks will make your head swim.  So many possibilities.  Their regular prices are pretty steep so I have to LOVE an item to go full price, but their stylings displayed around the store will give you lots of inspiration on how to put odd things together.  It’s like visiting a fashion museum to shop there.

Tips for Your Own Unique Style

Seems that style is buying what you like when you see it, trusting that you’ll either have something in your closet that will work with it or you’ll find something before long.  If you love it, you will be able to pair it with something else you love and create an outfit that is you.  People will ask you where you shop.

I'm a tap dancer, psychotherapist, educator, grandmother, gardener, reader, Yorkie mom who lives in Delano, Minnesota. I have a penchant for letter-writing, anything laced with ginger, flower pressing, 50's music and fashion. When I'm not up North at the lake in the summer, you can find me playing pickleball in The Villages, Florida. For my birthday, my husband gave me a custom-designed closet and it's my intention to keep it forever full.
