Just because we’re over 50 doesn’t mean we have to look frumpy! I’ve put together a list of online stores that I love for fashion items like clothing, shoes, jewelry, and accessories to help you look classy and chic. It’s not always easy to find sizes to fit our ever-changing over 50 figures but these wonderful stores offer flattering styles and a variety of sizes. I don’t know about you but it’s frustrating going to the mall where most of the stores cater to size zero young women.
