Chic sighting Archives - Page 4 of 5
Sigh... My trip wasn't really fruitful, in terms of Chic Sightings. Midway Airport in Chicago is NOT the place to look for fashion icons...
But I was in the Burlington Mall on Sunday, and saw a lovely young woman - long blond hair, no makeup, radiant smile, and this colorful ensemble. She looked comfortable and happy, and it didn't hurt that she was with a very attractive young man! ... View the Post
Some amazing color combinations, on some VERY nice, and lovely women... ... View the Post
This very lovely young lady works in the building where I live. While the jeans and sweater were very simple, the shoes demonstrated that she had put some thought into what she was wearing, and didn't just throw something together. At her age, and with her level of natural beauty, she could have been wearing a sack and looked striking.

One common characteristic that all of these women shared: a sense of planning. They weren't over-burdened with a bunch of stray bags, they knew where their ID and boarding pass were, their hair was neat and clean, they wore modest but attractive makeup, they just didn't appear to be frazzled and out of control.
And some of the outfits that you might assume were worn by younger women were in fact being sported with great elan by women of a certain age. With confidence and flair...

Maybe because it's been dark and gloomy, or maybe because Valentine's Day is barreling down upon us, but I've seen quite a few red coats in the last week, on women from 18 to 80. They certainly brighten up an otherwise severe city sidewalk! ... View the Post

For years, high-quality menswear has shown brown leather accessories with gray and navy clothing (check out Paul Stuart if you're not familiar with the idea). The woman I saw Saturday was working that look to perfection...
