How to Look Expensive, Classy and Chic

  1. Barbara Lacy says:

    Thank you for this well thought out article. These were snippets of classy dressing I knew, but had not put together in a pattern to follow. You have continually produced an excellent blog for mature women that want to look their best. Your contributors like Jennifer and Kelly are down to earth and supply us with solid info we can use every day. You should be very proud of your creation.

      I had a friend who always looked well put together and expensive. She had a few designer handbags to go with her outfits. As I got to know her better, I was surprised to find out that she bought most of her clothes at T J Max. It was the purses and a few pieces of good classic jewelry that made her look so classy and expensive. She was my role model and I miss her dearly

        Accessories always make or break your outfit. But when chosen wisely they will always add that little extra something!
        Thanks for sharing!

    Great post Beth. You have a great blog and you do a great job educating on how to dress. I can’t imagine how hard you work, but I’m sure glad you do!

    You always look classy, Beth! Thanks for letting us in on your secrets!
    I’m really interested in the full-sized steamer by Rowenta. Do you hang your clothes on the screen, and steam them that way? I’ve looked at some steamers where you hang the clothes on an included hanger. I’m wondering how those things work with pants?
    One video on You Tube shows a girl steaming her garment on a separate mannequin, so any tips you have about usage would be great! I do have a handheld steamer as well as an ironing board and Rowenta iron; however, I am currently struggling with a sore right hand and trigger finger, so a steamer makes sense. Thanks Beth!

      Hi Nancy!
      There are upright steamers that included a hangar to place your clothes on while you steam. Others, like this one with the screen give you vertical support so the clothes aren’t flopping in the air. It also has different fabric settings like an iron.
      Hope this helps!

    Enjoy your blog & outfit suggestions. Please tell me where you found or the brand of the gold strapped heeled sandals & the tan outfit worn with sneakers. Love them both! Thank you

    Beth, I love all your posts, but this one has to be my all time favorite! Effective and doable approach to looking our best!!

    You have become my go-to style model. If it wasn’t for you and your posts I’d probably just wear a t-shirt and jeans every day! In your “third layer” picture with the pink blazer, what is the brand of the white blouse you’re wearing underneath?
