Welcome

On my site I share affordable fashion for the mature woman. I want other people to share in the excitement of being the best version of themselves at any age.

Happy Christmas Eve to all! I hope this finds all of you well and preparing to share the holidays with friends, family, and special people in your life. I'm running around as usual, trying to finish up wrapping, and cooking before we head off to Christmas Eve services at church.  Today's #ootd is all about cashmere! A cashmere sweater or scarf makes a wonderful gift because it's so warm, soft and luxurious. And when its cool outside, bundling up with something cozy and warm is the best. This lush, soft sweater has been one I've had for a while. It's from JCrew. Cashmere is definitely an investment, but it's well worth it! What makes cashmere more costly?  I always like to look at the history of how different articles of clothing originated, so if you are interested, here's some history on cashmere. It also will give you a better understanding on why the cost is so much more then a cotton or even a wool sweater. History & Origins of Cashmere  

So enjoy your Christmas and stay warm!  I hope it's a unique and special time for you and everyone you hold dear.
