00:11
sharla with the right side of 50.
00:13
speaking to you a woman of a certain age
00:14
who wants to dress fabulous for the
00:16
holidays i've got you girl i'm going to
00:19
meet you right where you're at and we're
00:20
going to get you through those fun days
00:22
ahead that are just screaming holiday
00:24
okay here we go
00:26
look number one first of all this is so
00:30
holiday this is this complete set this
00:33
complete little outfit here that we have
00:34
going on i would wear to a christmas
00:37
concert i would wear to a candlelight
00:39
service something that's maybe a little
00:42
more elevated um that you're going to
00:43
want to just look fantastic for okay
00:46
especially starting off with this blouse
00:49
this blouse is by ronan ryan which is
00:50
one of our house brands um she's got a
00:52
little shimmer she's got a little shine
00:54
she's ready for the holidays
00:56
now some of you might be looking at this
00:58
thinking that's a little glitzy for me i
01:00
don't know if i could wear that at my
01:02
age you know i'm well over 50 i don't
01:05
know that's a little little daring for
01:07
me i'm gonna tell you why you can wear
01:09
that um okay
01:11
she has a liner in here so even though
01:14
it looks like it's got some sheer fabric
01:15
here you still have the coverage
01:18
underneath on the places that you want
01:19
to have it okay so that will keep it
01:22
just where you want it to be um and then
01:24
it also has a little collar here that
01:26
has some ruching on the top now i like
01:29
to wear it just open with a little
01:30
button undone but for those of you that
01:32
feel like you're a little more
01:34
conservative or at your age like i don't
01:36
know if i want that deep v on my
01:38
decollete you can use the button right
01:41
here and it still has a very elevated
01:43
holiday look or even if you just the
01:45
event that you're going to is more a
01:47
little more conservative you could do
01:48
that too and then um it's got a little
01:51
bit of a
01:52
blouse obviously like a little blouse um
01:55
movement here too with the arm because
01:57
of this little banding here around your
01:59
wrist it really gives you some movement
02:02
um as you're moving and talking and all
02:03
the things it also gives you
02:05
some of us at a certain age we don't
02:08
love our arms or the the shape of our
02:10
arms so this gives you coverage here and
02:13
the blouse isn't so tight around that um
02:16
upper arm of yours and it really gives
02:18
it a thinner look okay
02:20
um i front tucked mine with these um
02:23
amazing ever eve pants these are a wide
02:25
leg pant we're gonna get to the pant in
02:27
just a second but i did a little front
02:29
tuck on mine when i styled it that just
02:31
feels right to me it's comfortable for
02:33
me again if you're a little bit
02:35
more conservative or this feels too
02:37
fussy for you in the front you can wear
02:40
the blouse out and it has a little bit
02:42
of a kick right here i like to style it
02:45
um in because for me i feel like it
02:47
creates a little bit of a shape it
02:48
accentuates my waist a little more
02:51
rather than just having it go straight
02:53
down okay
02:54
all right onto the pants i promised you
02:56
um these are so fun these are an every
02:59
again by ever eve that's our house brand
03:01
um and it has a wider leg on it okay now
03:04
i'm five nine so you can see where it
03:06
kind of hits above my ankle
03:08
um
03:09
the little the little kick flare i think
03:11
sometimes people get nervous about we're
03:12
used to wearing our skinny jeans all the
03:14
time um or our straight leg um denim
03:18
this pant has again that little wider
03:20
leg why do i like that um i like it
03:23
because it shows my my ankle and my
03:25
ankles are the smallest part of my leg
03:28
and again creating some shape so i have
03:30
a smaller waist here comes out and then
03:33
it flares a little bit here and then it
03:35
shows off my shoulder or excuse me my
03:36
thinner ankle so it gives you again a
03:39
little bit of a shape and is quite
03:40
forgiving for those of us that at our
03:42
age aren't really crazy about our legs
03:45
but i think that it just really elevates
03:46
the whole thing then um i topped it off
03:49
with these great shoes from vince camuto
03:52
they are a beautiful brown suede and it
03:54
has a black heel now
03:57
again at our age some of us are get a
03:59
little bit nervous especially if you
04:00
live somewhere where the sidewalks get a
04:02
little bit slippery or we're nervous
04:04
about wearing those stiletto heels out
04:07
and about this little block heel um
04:09
gives you some more um
04:11
substance on the bottom and more
04:13
stability is like i guess what i should
04:14
say more stability um for as you're
04:16
walking in and out to and from your car
04:18
to your events okay
04:20
um because there's the the attraction
04:23
here is really the blouse which i love
04:25
um i just kept it very simple with a
04:27
hoop earring um and i'm just ready to go
04:29
off to my holiday thing okay i'm back
04:32
with look number two and this one is
04:34
going to meet you and your friends as
04:36
you go out for holiday cocktails on a
04:39
girls night okay how great is this this
04:42
long duster by baby dakota it's got your
04:44
fun sequins it's catching the light it
04:47
says holiday from top to bottom right i
04:50
layered this just with a little cami
04:52
that's got some lace on it you guys have
04:53
seen me wear these camis before to me i
04:55
love them because they have an
04:56
adjustable strap so depending upon at my
04:58
age how i want to wear it if i went a
05:00
little higher on my decollete
05:02
you can adjust that to that and then i
05:04
paired it with these great skinny jeans
05:08
they have some distressing on the bottom
05:09
with cute which keeps you really on
05:11
trend i think sometimes at our age we
05:13
feel like we need to have a finished
05:14
bottom um and in reality you don't just
05:18
wear it with confidence these fun little
05:19
it adds some detail and it also draws
05:22
the eye down from top to bottom with
05:24
your entire outfit and then look at
05:26
these little kicks i got on how cute are
05:28
they a little red suede heel little
05:30
stiletto heel again perfect for a girls
05:33
night out these are actually very
05:35
comfortable i think sometimes stilettos
05:37
i feel unstable in or sometimes at my
05:40
age too i feel like oh is it looking a
05:41
little youthful this actually
05:43
meets me right where i'm at i love them
05:45
and they're very comfortable okay
05:47
um and then i topped it off with a fun
05:50
little necklace here just add a little
05:52
shimmer a little shimmer in my earring
05:54
as well and i am good to go feeling
05:56
really confident for a fun girls night
05:58
out one more detail that i wanted to
06:00
share with this little beauty dakota
06:02
duster there's a drawstring inside so if
06:05
you want to make it a little bit tighter
06:07
it'll really create a shape for you
06:09
um and really accentuate your waist
06:11
which is the smallest part of your body
06:13
or if you feel more comfortable and you
06:15
want it just to hang straight you can
06:16
loosen the little ties on the inside but
06:19
this fun little shimmer is really going
06:21
to be the highlight of your holiday with
06:23
your girls
06:24
okay back with look number three
06:27

06:29
