I’m an Over 40 Fashion Blogger and My Styling Suggestions Have Gone Viral

Now I’m an over 40 fashion blogger and independent stylist. Until the pandemic, I was a personal fashion stylist for Nordstrom and offered style suggestions by appointment only. After 20 years at Nordstrom, I had a front-row seat to witnessing what some call the “death of the department store”. Now I share my styling expertise online for free. Fashion is always evolving and the way we shop has changed, but our need to #getdressd and how that can make us feel hasn’t. Whether you want a closet makeover or just a shot in the armoire here are some of my most popular posts.

OVER 40 FASHION

By today’s standards, I’m still a digital dinosaur, but in an effort to share what I know with my friends, I’ve come a long way. This month I hit one hundred thousand followers on Instagram. I love to source and share new fashion trends and wardrobe updates that make creative capsule wardrobes and keep your closets current. Thank you for your support!

This September closetchoreography.com turns two and I’m making something to share for free with all of my subscribers. If you’re not on the list you can SIGN UP HERE FOR FREE.

VIRAL VIDEOS | OVER 2 MILLION VIEWS

The videos that have gone viral both have something in common; capsule wardrobes! Capsule wardrobes are my styling secret to always having something stylish to wear. I have a failproof formula for making creative capsule wardrobes that anyone can recreate regardless of their age, body, or budget.

This was one of my most popular capsule wardrobe blog posts. I took my 2022 Ageless Spring Capsule Wardrobe checklist and sourced the entire capsule for under $500.

You can still shop for most of the outfits I made including these HERE, on Target.com and Amazon. See my new Modern Classic Capsule Wardrobe checklist and lookbook HERE.

WHAT WORKS BEST ON YOUR BODY

I might be a size 0 but most of my clients are not. The average size woman wears a size 12. My years in the fitting room at Nordstrom taught me what works best on all different body types, and I have yet to see two the same. The styling secret is knowing your numbers so you can manipulate your proportions to find the most flattering fits.

Know Your Numbers

Slip skirts are one of the wardrobe staples I recommend the most. The secret is all in the styling. I showed how here on Coffee in My Closet and also in this Haute Mama Look of the Day.

FASHION OVER 40 HIGH LOW STYLING

First Photoshoot for closetchoreography.com in Sacramento, CA at the Capital.

From the beginning, I’ve shared that it doesn’t matter where you buy your wardrobe it’s all about how you put it together. I shared my style strategies in some of my first blog posts HIGH LOW STYLING STAPLES | 3 PIECES ESSENTIAL TO YOUR CLOSET and HOW TO MIX HIGH LOW FASHION | FINDING YOUR STYLE. I also include high-low closet essentials in every capsule wardrobe I made and most of my Haute Mama Looks of the Day on Instagram.

DOUBLE DUTY

Every piece I share does double duty. You can be a functional fashionista from your accessories to your closet keepsakes too.
