Although I do not consider myself a fashionista I love to see women who are and Advanced Style is one of my favorite places to discover beautiful women of advanced years. I hope that as I age I can age as gracefully and as fashionable as these women. This weeks post A Letter from Dee touched me and I think it will you as well.
That is it for this week. I hope that you will share any of your finds from the week. Have a wonderful and safe weekend.
