A page to thank my fellow bloggers for shoutouts!
Thank you Patti for including me in your real-life fashion show.
“Carmen of of Fashionable Over 50 is rocking a knit skirt, lace blouse and ankle booties – in the snow. I think that gives us warm climate women an excuse to wear our boots until April. Love Carmen’s textured tights.” Patti
Thank you Susan for a wonderful write-up and interview about my vegan lifestyle. Thank you for sharing your delicious and nutritious recipes with us! Compassion is growing.
Thank you Jo-Lynne for including me in Over 50 Fashion Bloggers.
“I hope this gives you some new fashionable blogs to discover! I love seeing women over 50 putting themselves out there. It’s not easy to do, I can assure you, but these ladies prove that you can still have great style as you age, and they share exactly how to do that. Even though I’m not 50 yet, they inspire me to stay current and adapt the trends to work for me. I hope they inspire you as well.” – Jo-Lynne

CARMEN, UN MITE DE LA MODA MADURA
He estat apartat dels blocs de moda, però he mantingut el contacte ininterromput amb un, el blog de la Carmen Coburn, Carmen Czech de soltera. Perquè el bloc de la Carmen no és, només, un bloc de moda, és un bloc d’una manera de viure, d’una filosofia vital i una il·lusió per la vida, per les persones, per la familia, per la natura, pels animals, per l’alimentació sana, per les creences… És el bloc d’un mite, que s’ha convertit en una gran amiga, la meva amiga canadenca.
La Carmen té 63 anys, a ella no li molestarà que jo digui la seva edat, perquè és una dada que ella no ha amagat mai. La Carmen té fills i nets, és mare i avia, i fa de la seva familia un motiu de felicitat quotidiana, ella és feliç i fa feliç als seus.
Professionalment, ella és professora de dansa (podeu trobar molts videos de les seves classes a Youtube) per a gent gran i per a nens, especialment. La dansa és una part molt important de la seva vida i un altre instrument per repartir felicitat als qui l’envolten, els seus alumnes.
How glad I am that I recently got to know Carmen. She is from Germany, emigrated to Canada at age 5. Her motto: Staying young, fit, healthy and fashionable in the 50-ies and beyond. Really very well done, I would have NEVER estimated that she´s over 50. In addition to her fashion the vegan food is very important for her and there is still a brilliant highlight to discover!! You may you also look forward to many dance videos on her site, which you can watch on YouTube. But no wild jumping around .. oh no! It leads you step by step slowly in the art of dance and from Mambo over to Merengue over to Samba! Do not miss to watch in there 🙂
My personal favourite this week was Carmen for her lovely white pants outfit (biased much? lol) with a punchy pop of red.
Color makes you look alive, and if you are wearing neon, electric! Take a look at how these over 40 style bloggers rock this summer’s neon trend.
Neon with an Urban Vibe
Carmen is a 50+ style blogger who wanted an outfit that would do double for her trip to New York City. It had to be casual but a little trendy, and it had to be versatile enough to style a few different ways. These neon yellow jeans and t-shirt worn with a black vest and shoes fit the bill.
This is a look with stand-out style. It’s got a cool, urban vibe and she can mix and match pieces, which means it helps to cut down on her packing.
Peplum tops, like maxi dresses, were hot this spring. They’re are a great way to dress up an outfit.
Fashion blogger Carmen has fond memories of her mom’s gorgeous red peplum dress with black roses from the 60s and longs to have a wardrobe full of peplum suit jackets with matching pencil skirts just like her mom had. While in New York City recently, Carmen wore a peplum top with capri pants and strappy black sandals.
Carmen (who is 61 !) loves peplum tops because they are feminine, great for all body types from slim to fuller figures and really create the hourglass that so many of us wish we had. They also make her feel very feminine.
You can see more of Carmen’s feminine and pretty style at her blog, Fashionable Over 50.
