NOW HERE IS MY DEAR FRIEND CINDY!
WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF AGELESS STYLE TO YOU?
Someone who is not concerned with their age or the latest trends. They embrace who they are and have the knowledge, self esteem and confidence to work with what they have in creating their own unique style.
WHAT TWO WORDS BEST DESCRIBE YOUR WAY TO DRESS?
Cindy says: “Perhaps a combination of Classic and Bohemian.”
YOU DEFINITELY HAVE A GOOD LOOK HAVE YOU ALWAYS HAD A SENSE OF STYLE OR DID IT EVOLVE OVER THE YEARS?
Oh who knows. I have been interested in both fashion and interiors since I was a child. My father built track homes. He let me pick out finishes when I was a teenager.I am sure there were some awful combinations. Let’s just say I was always interested and attempted to be stylish!
WHAT TRENDS DO YOU SEE TODAY THAT AN OLDER WOMAN CAN CARRY OFF?
I think the midi and maxi are flattering to women our age. I also think the wide leg pant can be very flattering.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE SHOE BRAND?
ARTEMIS for interesting fun shoes
For comfort, korkease, olukai, birdies and many others.
At my age shoes have to be comfortable or I know I will not wear them.
HOW DO YOU SHOP FOR YOUR CLOSET?
DO YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU NEED OR ARE YOU MORE IMPULSIVE?
HOW OFTEN WOULD YOU SAY YOU DO A DEEP CLEAN OF THE CLOSET?
I am not impulsive at all.
I overthink everything to a fault.
I try to have a lot of items that can be interchanged for different looks.
I love accessories and like to change up my looks that way.
Deep cleaning my closet?
I just sent four boxes to Thred Up.
Downsizing forced me to deep clean.
Now if I can keep it that way!
WHAT KIND OF SKIN DO YOU HAVE AND CAN YOU SHARE THE PRODUCTS THAT WORK FOR YOU?
My skin has always been oily. I still get a pimple on occasion. I still cannot wear moisturizer or anything with an oil base. I use Retin A, vitamin C serum (timeless currently) and a hyaluronic acid serum (Vichy right now). I love Elta MD for sunscreen. It does not clog your pores like some. Currently I am using bare minerals foundation
CAN YOU THINK OF TWO PEOPLE WHO MIGHT HAVE INFLUENCED YOU AS A YOUNG ADULT?
The woman who influenced me the most was my darling Aunt Dodo.
She wasn’t particularly stylish, that wasn’t her thing.
She worked in the inner city as a nurse and was a champion for women’s rights back when no one was talking about it.
As far as stylish women, I would say there were two.
One was my best high school friend’s mom and another was a very fashionable older friend who let her hair go gray early.
I studied the two of them!
FAVORITE MAGAZINE TODAY FOR FASHION OR A WEBSITE?
I honestly do not read fashion magazines.
I tend to read articles online that focus on women our age.
WILL YOU SHARE A COUPLE OF OLDER WOMENS INSTAGRAM SITES THAT YOU FOLLOW
AND HAVE NOT SHARED BEFORE?
PERHAPS WITH GREY HAIR?
Oh sure! Of course Sandra Sallin, recent Ageless features Debra Darling and Kerry Lou Henson.
Kerry Lou Henson.
DO YOU THINK YOU DRESS LIKE YOUR HOME?
Somewhat. I am not a huge pattern lover. I tend to favor texture over pattern. I prefer natural fabrics for my home and my body. I am not carrying any sort of banner. I just like the way they look and feel. I am a huge fan of linen (in case you haven’t noticed).
WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA AND HOW WE HAVE ALL FOUND EACH OTHER?
There are things I love about it and there are things that I don’t love about it.
I love the women I have met and the friendships that I have made through blogging.
I can’t say enough about that part of it.
WITH ONE WORD DESCRIBE WHAT BLOGGING MEANS TO YOU?
I absolutely adore the women who read my blog.
They are vibrant, interesting, and I learn from them everyday.
DID YOU STUDY INTERIOR DESIGN IN SCHOOL?
