    Dear Beth, I am a huge fan of yours. But today I would like to recommend, that you bring your bag to a Fendi shop, or send it in for get the trim repaired. Usually the luxurious companies offer this service for small costs. If you have the bill, it would be easier. I recommend your site to all of my friends. By reading your posts we learn English.
    Merry Christmas to all of you

    Please give us an alternative to shoes with no socks for winter. I would freeze to death with my ankles exposed!

    Hi Beth
    I’ve been following you awhile. Love your style! I did fwtfl program almost 2 yrs ago & still follow their program. Heard the podcast earlier this week & you spoke about your sweet treat that you make. Something chocolate & peanut butter. Looked on your blog & cannot find recipe. Would you mind forwarding to me? Look forward to your emails each week! Enjoy your holidays! Thanks, Kim

    Hi Beth..Call me a stick in the mud, no torn jeans for me! Cute outfit otherwise.
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

      ha ha! it would be a boring world indeed if we all liked the same things. but it’s a cute outfit with or without distressed jeans. just add a pair of denim you love. voila! the perfect outfit for you.

  7. Sandy Dunn says:

    I love this look on you. It is my favorite way to go. Look forward to reading your post every day.

    Coco Chanel is famous, yes, but didn’t know she was infamous. Who knew?

  9. Laurel says:

    Just wish I could find cap for flats in wide, love the look, can’t find any comparable shoes that fit!

    I’m for leaving the distressed jeans (and those are REALLY torn and pretty baggy at the knees, to boot!) to the kids. Stylish torn jeans are an oxymoron—and don’t have a place in a sophisticated 60-something’s wardrobe. But, as you say, to each his own and fashion is self-expression! Fun reading your blog, though!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      it always cracks me up what a hot top distressed jeans are. but jeans whether they’re distressed or not belong in a sophisticated wardrobe. thank goodness there’s no age limit to style or distressed denim.

    I like a shirt under a turtleneck–it’s a great way to add some color close to the face and have a pop of color at the wrist, too. This looks so comfy and modern all at once. I can see why it’s a popular post. Hope the weekend’s treating you and your gang well. I can hardly believe it’s almost the end of the year. My one year knee-versary is the 19th, and I can hardly believe it. Very grateful this year. (You must be so sick of hearing about it! haaaaaa) xo

    • Beth Djalali says:

      it’s a very important anniversary! what a difference a year can make and i’m happy you can enjoy christmas this year instead of hobbling around on crutches! merry, merry christmas to you and yours.

    My next b’day is going to be the big 70, but I still love a hit of youthful style in my wardrobe. I love the distressed jeans on you – obviously, they are just one piece of a well rounded fun wardrobe. I own 2 pairs of distressed jeans -one pair became distressed from years of cleaning and yard work! I wear them with my Chuck Taylors – I have had several comments about how cool they look. I would describe my wardrobe as updated classical – already planning my spring wardrobe purchases – a classic navy or blue blazer, but also a moto jacket! Why not have fun?

  13. Sharon says:

    Your hair, your makeup, I’m not sure what it is but you look 20+years younger and just fabulous in these photos! Love the outfit–it works! Just like a recipe, we can use it as inspiration and tweak to our liking. Merry Christmas!

  14. Suzanne Contois says:

    Can’t believe distressed jeans have been around for that long! Anyway, I agree a little distressing adds a youthful touch; love that sweater with-great outfit!
