Now. This! is Style! At Any Age!

According to what I am reading and seeing fashion has no expiration date.  This is Betty Halbreich
who wrote the book that I am reading right now, “I’ll Drink to That: A Life in Style, With a Twist,” (Penguin Press) .  Just check out the photos and they will tell you a story.  Ladies, don't give up and don't be afraid.  Soldier on.  Colors, chunky jewelry (never throw anything out) fun designs, fun hemlines.  Great warm and cozy grays and self confidence go a long, long way.  This is book porn for me. But the self confidence was hard fought.  This is a memoir about a woman's life, not just a life in fashion.  Just wish she included photos of her wonderful life.

Read about her upscale beginnings, her hopeful marriage, and her will to save herself.  This is the type of lady I like to see growing older gracefully, not the overdone, over made up kooks out there that have books written about them.....naming no names...

 And by the way, she's 86.  Life is not over for Betty....oh no it isn't!
