Seasoned Women of the Lipstick

Natalie and I have now gotten quite a few requests from our more seasoned, sophisticated crowd of followers that they would like to see more posts geared toward their age group.  So....we have taken them up on their requests and are offering our tips for these fabulous followers and their friends.  As you all remember, I have raved about the book The One Hundred by: Nina Garcia.  One of the staple items found in this book, and might I add found in every style book I have read this past year, is the white-button down shirt. This closet staple is a must-have for every age group with such versatility and style that you will be kicking yourself that you haven't bought one until now!  Now, here are a couple of different ways that you can wear this classic from weekend to night out:

White button down with classic black skirt - this could mean a black pencil skirt, a full black circle skirt, or a long flowing black skirt.

Take this look for example from Kristin Davis:

Now you can always do a white-button down shirt with jean capris which is one of my favs.  It is kind of like modern day Gap meets Audrey Hepburn.  Dress it up with a pearl necklace and nude ballet flats or dress it down with some brown leather sandals, maybe even gladiators which are appropriate for all age groups:

You can find all of these basics at so many different shopping locations such as Ann Taylor Loft, The Gap, Talbots, Kohls, or even T.J. Maxx.

I hope this will give our Celebrated Women of the Lipstick a little push in the right direction to start their wardrobe building!
