i've been contemplating making changes to passionista place to make it better for you and easier to keep up with for me.  my plan is to have specific features you can count on each week.  in other words, i'd like it streamlined like a magazine and their "in every issue" format.  one of those features is giving the spotlight to one of the numerous fabulous blogs/websites i come across on a daily basis.  i had a whole list of sites i've been meaning to share with you.  but then i recently (as in the day before yesterday) came across the blog called advancedstyle and knew it would be perfect.  advanced style is all about celebrating inclusive beauty just like we do.  they have a particular set area they showcase however: fierce, fashionable mature women!  oh, the outfits, the hair and the infinite wisdom..........sigh.  i love this blog!  below is some advice from one elder who knows her stuff:
1.”Gloves they make an outfit, if it’s the right glove it can do everything for you.”

2.”Getting a good black dress that you can fix up with different wonderful colored scarves.”

3.”Marvelous Jewelry, it doesn’t have to be real or expensive, a strand of pearls can make an outfit.”

4.”A wonderful large fiocco, a beautiful bow or boa.”

5.” The right neckline, if you have a beautiful D├ęcolletage then by all mean shows it.”

6. “I look for the brightest colors in shoes, don’t be afraid to wear them with a dark dress. A bright scarf and shoes and gloves of the same color will stand out against the black background of a dress or suit.”

7. ”The older you get the more elegance you want, you can use great color, but in an elegant way.”

8.”Don’t be afraid to be unique to be different.”

9.”Fishnet stockings, Incredible.”

10. “The real secret is being in love with life and realizing what you have.”
