I love clothes for their elegance, their romance, and to suit my mood or challenges. In the past two years I have used “retail therapy” — clothes, shoes, handbags and the occasional jewelry to get me through shall we say a transitional period. I am 55 years old. I am 5’7″ and 135 pounds and I spend a lot of time — in this stage of life called menopause — exercising: ballet, yoga, personal training, Pilates and tennis. And I love chatting about clothes with other fabulous stylish women!
